Liverpool - Mid-Term Statistical Report

Liverpool - Mid-Term Statistical Report

With the season just over half way gone I thought I’d take a look at Liverpool’s season team stats, see how they compare to other teams at this stage in the Premiership and also take a little look at how those statistics compare to some of last year’s totals. All though this will be a Liverpool based article, from a statistical point of view it’s interesting to note how all teams are doing in the Premier League at this stage. …
Do Liverpool need to buy anyone this January?

Do Liverpool need to buy anyone this January?

As we approach the January transfer window Liverpool will be looking to bring in a few new faces to the club and whether those players are stars or up and comers we will find out. As you look at the team closely you are able to find those areas in which we are in need and I will be going through that specifically. To start with we look at our goalkeeper big Pepe,the 3 time golden glove winner, has started …

Liverpool V Aston Villa | Stats & Graphical Preview

Next up is a trip to Villa Park where we lost our final league game last year 1-0. The goal scorer for Villa that day our very own winger Stewart Downing. Villa go into the game in 9th position in the table on 19 points from 15 games with a form guide and last six that reads WLDLWD. Those 2 losses coming at home to Man United and away to Spurs. If they beat us on Sunday they could move …
Liverpool V QPR | Tactical Stats & Graphical Preview

Liverpool V QPR | Tactical Stats & Graphical Preview

Not a great week for Liverpool Football Club. There is nothing more frustrating than an undeserved defeat. Add to that a spurious F.A. charge for failing to control your players, and an investigation into your lead striker for a provocative hand gesture, and you can quite comfortable say it hasn't been the best of weeks. I'm not going to go into the above charges, suffice to say, for both instances, there has been a number of similar incidents of such …
Graft, Craft and How to Fill

Graft, Craft and How to Fill "The Lucas Role"

Getting the right mix of grafters and crafters is vital to a team's success. A grafter is the type of player who makes up for any failings in natural technical ability through sheer blood, guts and endeavour. Think Dirk Kuyt. On the opposite end of the scale you have crafters, players who have a very high level of technical ability but are are more tactile in their play. Jordan Henderson fits into this box. Liverpool's squad has many players who immediately …
Lucas Deserves More From All Of Us

Lucas Deserves More From All Of Us

A Sky Sports Man of the Match award at last.  Forget the 2010 Liverpool FC Young Player of the Year Award and the Golden Samba awarded from the Kop last season; that man of the match award from Gary Neville and co after the Manchester City match must mean that Lucas Leiva is finally a player befitting the Liverpool shirt. That’s what it seems from the media coverage, anyway. After suffering an injury against Chelsea last Tuesday, just 50 hours …
The Challenge Facing Jay Spearing

The Challenge Facing Jay Spearing

Following the sad news that Lucas Leiva will miss the remainder of the season after sustaining an anterior cruciate ligament injury in Liverpool's recent Carling Cup quarter-final victory at Chelsea, Kenny Dalglish faces a dilemma: just who can fill the current player-of-the-year's boots? Perhaps a replacement will be drafted in during the forthcoming transfer window, but before that can happen the Reds have six league games to negotiate in December, and that's before you consider a triple-header with Manchester City …
Fulham V Liverpool | Tactical & Stats Preview

Fulham V Liverpool | Tactical & Stats Preview

And what a week that was. From Chelsea to City and back again. Two fantastic performances put in by the players. Then right back down to earth with the hide-under-the-duvet moment when we found out the unfortunate news of Lucas's bad injury. After putting in a couple of bone crunching displays against City and Chelsea, Lucas was just starting to get the far reaching acclaim most of us thought he should have been getting a year ago. Sod's law they …
Quantifying Lucas' Absence

Quantifying Lucas' Absence

The widespread disappointment that met the news of Lucas’ injury is a reflection on the Brazilian’s progress; his tale of zero to hero is now well-repeated in mainstream discussion. Statistics have justified his continued role in the team. He’s been the league’s most prolific tackler both this and last season, and also produced a fine ball-winning display in his most recent league match. His sudden absence has sparked speculation as to how Liverpool will cope. It’s entirely fair to suggest areas …

Chelsea 1 Liverpool 2 | The Story via Player Influence Pitch Maps

Liverpool FC's third consecutive away victory was impressive at Stamford Bridge today. Not only was it a third consecutive away victory it was also two in a row at Stamford Bridge which not many teams have accomplished in the modern era. The victory stretches Liverpool's unbeaten run to nine in all competitions and seven in Premier League games. There will be a match report coming up on Anfield Index in the next day or so from Ravi Amin so I …
