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?

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? …

Personnel Over System - Why the Current Form?

"It's the new defensive coach that we got in that everybody thought we needed. That has done the trick"
- Brendan Rodgers after the win at Southampton. Basking in his own glory post-Southampto similarly to a man embracing the smell of his own fart. We witnessed a very smug Brendan Rodgers deliver that quote with a wry smile at the end of it. You can't argue with the facts, Liverpool have been infinitely better defensively since the change …

The Liverpool Screw Job | Lovren Vs Sakho

The Liverpool changing room. Morale is high after the late Tottenham win but that's not enough for Brendan Rodgers. The owners are in town and he needs to make an impression. Brendan: "Listen, lads, fantastic effort tonight. It's a great win, you all showed great technical ability. Even you, Dejan, you made no mistakes when coming on so the #LFCFamily will be pleased." The players all have a laugh whilst the manager flashes back to eating a Haribo tangfastic and …
Memoirs of a Brendan Rodgers Disciple

Memoirs of a Brendan Rodgers Disciple

August 31st 2014 I knew it. I bloody well knew it! “Brendan Rodgers relied on Luis Suarez for the success of last season” they said. HA! Be the Lord, the Reds were as good as last year today. Liverpool went to White Hart Lane and told Tottenham “we are just better than you lot.” And we are. So much better. We might not reach the title this year, but top four is ours. Easily third, that’s for sure. Maybe second …
Looking Between The Lines | Liverpool FC Tactical Analysis

Looking Between The Lines | Liverpool FC Tactical Analysis

In modern day football, the space between the lines is one of the most key areas, if not the key area in attack. One of the most simple reasons for this is that a player who positions himself in this space is theoretically unmarked. If they are to be marked it generally requires one or two defending players to momentarily break shape to go and confront him, thereby leaving space elsewhere. A player of course doesn't have to be marked …
