Lazar Can Be Class, He Needs Games and Patience

Lazar Can Be Class, He Needs Games and Patience

The players Liverpool failed to sign-a striker to replace Suarez, a better centre-back and a good defensive midfielder-among other factors led to the club’s miserable season. However LFC’s future may well be defined by some of the young players they signed last summer. One such player is Lazar Markovic. As the club struggled and a lot of the new signings not least the “Premier League proven” players failed to make good impact, Markovic has been lumped together with Lovren and …
Brendan Rodgers: Win (back) the Crowd

Brendan Rodgers: Win (back) the Crowd

I’m a big fan of applying movie quotes to aspects of everyday life. I have a Mean Girls reference for almost any situation. This seemed like as good a time as any to quote the 2000 classic Gladiator. “Win the crowd and you will win your freedom”. With Brendan Rodgers set to remain Liverpool manager for the foreseeable future, following an end-of-season post-mortem with Liverpool’s ownership, the Northern Irishman faces a real test to win back the crowd; to convince …

"Premier League Proven" Proves NOTHING!

Nothing quite grinds Liverpool fans' gears like the words “Outstanding” or “Character”. However, that doesn’t stop Brendan Rodgers from using them at every opportunity presented to him. The reason why those phrases get fans backs up against the wall is because they’re simply not true. We are not outstanding, haven’t been all season. We certainly don’t show character when the chips are down or when we’ve played a high-pressure game; we’ve bottled it and that's putting it politely. This season …
Where did it all go wrong for Liverpool?

Where did it all go wrong for Liverpool?

In the space of a month, Liverpool’s season seems to have fallen apart. They’re out of the FA Cup and the possibility of a top four finish looks slim, although there is still hope. Liverpool currently sit in fifth place, on 57 points, seven points off Manchester City who are in the running for the final Champions League spot. The Reds have got a game in hand but with away ties to both Chelsea and Stoke still to play; it …
How do you Rate Liverpool's 14/15 Summer Signings?

How do you Rate Liverpool's 14/15 Summer Signings?

The summer of 2014 saw Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers spending £117m in the transfer market in an attempt to boost the club’s title aspirations. After a season that saw the Reds finish second and qualify for the Champions League, the plan was to strengthen the squad in preparation for a crowded fixture list. Of the signings made, though, only a few have made any significant difference to the team. A look at their form this season indicates better times could …

Judge Yr'self - The Key Decisions of Scouts And Owners

Judging. There’s a lot of it going on lately. The manager, the players, the owners, and the judges themselves, are all being judged. Football is about being a good judge. From the owner choosing whether or not to buy a club, to appointing the right manager, instilling the right philosophy, employing the right staff and buying the right players. Then journalists and commentators will then assess the results of these things and the fans will also react to what happens …
Blackburn vs. Liverpool Preview: This or Nothing?

Blackburn vs. Liverpool Preview: This or Nothing?

Over a month ago, Liverpool played out an uninspiring draw at Anfield against Blackburn. Although a typical drab draw, the sun was shining over Merseyside. The tired looking performance did little to dampen spirits or cause concern. Four weeks ago, Liverpool were unbeaten in the league in 2015. They had just been knocked out of the Europa League, but Brendan Rodgers’ side had won their last five league games on the spin, including impressive displays against Manchester City, Tottenham and …
Pro Evolution II - Pro Brendan Rodgers

Pro Evolution II - Pro Brendan Rodgers

There wasn’t meant to be a part two, but in this earlier, speculative look at where Liverpool might go in the coming months and years, the Liverpool manager barely got a mention. Since then, Brendan Rodgers has been the name on everyone’s lips, on everyone’s blog, in every newspaper, and on all the podcasts, thanks to Liverpool’s impressive form in the league. Aside from all this talk about the manager, the reason for Liverpool’s change in fortunes has been attributed …
Brendan Rodgers could learn a thing or two from Vito Corleone

Brendan Rodgers could learn a thing or two from Vito Corleone

Brendan Rodgers has been doing a great job in the second half of the season. He’s managed to get the season going and a place for top four finish is still within Liverpool’s grasp. A task that seemed so unachievable for the reds back in December. Granted, Signor Rodgers has had an impressive stint but if he’s to be the true Don of Merseyside, then I fear he has to take life lessons from Vito Corleone and implement them into …

2 Sides to Brendan: Has He Done Enough?

Over Brendan Rodgers' time at Liverpool, his contrasting results have left many to wonder whether he has a future at the helm of the Reds. So, does he? …
