Memorable Liverpool FC Boxing Day Games

Memorable Liverpool FC Boxing Day Games

I'm an advocate of changing the Premier League schedule so clubs have a mini winter break. I think it'll benefit the clubs in Europe and it'll benefit the league in the long term as you won't be blitzing the players and having them play in something silly like a game every 3 days...but, at the same time I think Boxing day football is alongside the opening day of the season and the final game of the season for games I …
Liverpool's Strongest Team

Liverpool's Strongest Team

We all know what Liverpool's strongest team is, well we all like to think we know what Liverpool's strongest team is anyways. If you go through the full squad, including those who are out on loan and those who are currently injured Liverpool have the potential to have one of the strongest starting elevens currently in the Premier League. They now also have back up in positions they never had before, mainly in the left back and the right back …
Liverpool's Midfield Matches

Liverpool's Midfield Matches

A disappointing result, and a disappointing weekend, however turning the result into a positive we were missing in my eyes first team players like Mamadou Sakho, Emre Can, Jordan Henderson, Philippe Coutinho and Daniel Sturridge.  Five players who make a difference. You would still like to think a team in some people's opinions who are genuine title challengers should still be able to get a win against a struggling team low on confidence such as Newcastle United.  And I would …
The Newcastle Defeat - Carry on Believing

The Newcastle Defeat - Carry on Believing

When The Reds lose it can never be seen as anything other than shit. It's very rare you can take positives from a defeat because no matter how you look at it, it's a loss. You do however often hear managers talking about an eye opening defeat and the 2-0 loss to Newcastle was exactly that. It was a reality check in many ways. Liverpool losing to Newcastle is not typical like many suggested. This isn't the equivalent of losing …
Sakho - The Parisian titan's injury couldn't be crueller

Sakho - The Parisian titan's injury couldn't be crueller

rIt has been clear to Liverpool fans for a while that Mamadou Sakho is an absolute titan of a man. He shows a passion for the club that scousers can identify with, but more than that he is the complete modern centre-half. He is comfortable getting tight on strikers, stepping up and defending on his massive front foot, but he is also a fantastic defender in the box, never caught out of position and a fully committed header of the …
Alberto Moreno - Revitalised and Reborn

Alberto Moreno - Revitalised and Reborn

Alberto Moreno or 'Albie' as he's lovingly known, is fast becoming a fan favourite at Liverpool football club. A player who in his own words started the season with an "inner rage", due to not being given a fair opportunity to play; has taken his chance with both hands and is flourishing under Jürgen Klopp's new management. He arrived in the summer of 2014 with a great sense of hope. An expectation that we may finally have cured our left-back …
Lucas Leiva - Tackles, Interceptions and Over The Top Praise

Lucas Leiva - Tackles, Interceptions and Over The Top Praise

Liverpool fans are a sentimental bunch. I often think supporters are quick to jump to the defence of long serving players Martin Skrtel and Lucas Leiva because they're the two remaining players from the Rafa days so kind of remind people of Istanbul. It's silly of course because neither player happened to be at the club when Liverpool brought ol' big ears back home for good but that link to Rafa perhaps gives these players some extra credit with fans? …
Is 'Average Liverpool' Just a Media Narrative?

Is 'Average Liverpool' Just a Media Narrative?

Even before Jurgen Klopp took over as Liverpool manager the English media had been pushing the idea that this Liverpool side is average. The same media were the ones praising the signings of James Milner and Christian Benteke saying they'd take the Reds up another level. So how can a team finish 6th last season, make signings that supposedly improve the side but on the whole become worse? I don't give much credence to what the likes of Harry Redknapp …
Full Throttle Football - A 25 Minute Snapshot

Full Throttle Football - A 25 Minute Snapshot

The Klopp effect, the Gen-Gen Pressing machine, the German Maestro’s organised mayhem. Hyperbole had been thrown around for a week in preparation for the enigmatic German’s arrival, and much had been made of Klopp’s tactics in the lead-up to the away trip to White Hart Lane. “A wild one” was the phrase that stirred already excitable fans to the extreme levels of animation. After years of limbo; of being directed to unexciting, stagnant football curtailed by a lack of direction …
Most Influential French Players for Liverpool

Most Influential French Players for Liverpool

Liverpool’s slow start to the 2015/16 campaign can be easily attributed to a lack of goals, (eight in nine games.) As the Anfield crowd continue to be frustrated by a seeming lack of ‘flair’ in the side, many may be wishing that the transfer board take a punt on a talented French player who could give the side some much needed spark. But just how have French players coped at the club? It may come as a surprise to most …
