Player Comparison: James Milner vs Jordan Henderson

Player Comparison: James Milner vs Jordan Henderson

A lot of people on Twitter seem to believe that James Milner and Jordan Henderson offer nothing to a football team other than athleticism. Both can run forever and neither of them would ever quit before the game was up. Both are model professionals and both have their own charities to match, giving them a human quality we can relate to as well. You'd therefore be forgiven for thinking that these two players are just carbon copies of one another …
Philippe Coutinho: A shining light in a frustrating season

Philippe Coutinho: A shining light in a frustrating season

Philippe Coutinho was recently named in the PFA team of the year; but in expected style, not all agreed. It was questioned by some as to whether he deserved to make the line-up, but why shouldn't he? In what has been such a frustrating and disappointing season for Liverpool, the Reds didn't make that stepping stone and build on the unbelievable progress that was made last year. With Suarez and Sturridge missing, however, we knew it would be difficult. But …
Will Liverpool Fans Urge On The Reds of Manchester This Sunday?

Will Liverpool Fans Urge On The Reds of Manchester This Sunday?

Liverpool fans have utterly enjoyed Manchester City's rise and United's fall of late. That 'Aguero' moment back in 2012 got us in a frenzy of celebration and jubilation at the fact that Manchester United lost the league title to their bitter rivals. Why United and not City then? They are both Manchester teams after all. No, Liverpool and Manchester United have been fierce rivals for over twenty years, in contrast to City, who have ascended to the top in the last three-to-four seasons. …
The Jordan Henderson Dilemma

The Jordan Henderson Dilemma

Jordan Henderson's Liverpool career is a real Cinderella story. From being offered as a makeweight in the Clint Dempsey deal to becoming the captain in waiting within a matter of three seasons. It just goes to show how things change in football so quickly. Add to the fact he's now got an impressive beard coming along nicely and an appearance in the Nivea Ad I fully expect Disney to be on the phone to him soon asking for the rights …
Steven Gerrard and The New Generation

Steven Gerrard and The New Generation

Since making his debut in 98, Steven Gerrard has won admiration and praise throughout the footballing world. In his prime, he terrorised defences with his unstoppable runs through midfield and his wonderful strike of the ball. We all know the player our captain was and we know the player he has become. The Gerrard of this season is a shadow of his former self and he continues to stain his legacy. Many fans across social media hope to never see …

Cup-Tied or Hamstrung? | Liverpool FC

The Magic of the (FA) Cup. We all love a good cup tie, don't we? Every fan, surely, must want to see their team go on a great cup run, musn't they? I mean, winning breeds winning; it's a great way to gather momentum; the players just want to get out there and play; When you're winning you want to win again, and if you're losing, you just want to go out there and put things right. After all, that's …
God is a Red - Robbie Fowler | Strikers Week on AnfieldIndex!

God is a Red - Robbie Fowler | Strikers Week on AnfieldIndex!

"It doesn't matter what you do, we've got God on our side", a fairly common retort from a Liverpool fan in the mid to late nineties. No matter who you were bantering with, which one of your mates' sides LFC were facing that week - United, Arsenal, Spurs, Newcastle, even Sheffield Wednesday at the time - it wasn't important, because we had God, and He was gonna win it for us. And, more often than not, He did! A shining …
Write-Off Liverpool FC at Your Peril!

Write-Off Liverpool FC at Your Peril!

Football has returned, finally! Club football I mean, the good stuff, the stuff that matters. Yes, the Premier League kicked off its new season last Saturday and, by now, all 20 clubs involved have played their opening two matches. The biggest game of the season so far took place on Monday night, when last year's Champions, Manchester City, took on and defeated the runners up in 2013/14, Liverpool FC. When evaluating how the final league standings might appear come the …
Is the Smart Money on Liverpool?

Is the Smart Money on Liverpool?

Four, long years. Four years of Champions League football wilderness, starting with the capitulation of the Rafa regime, continuing with Hodgeball and the return of the King, and most recently, an investment in what is fast becoming a special managerial talent in Brendan Rodgers. I’m circumventing a key issue in those four years, of course – the change in ownership.  The shift from Hicks & Gillett to FSG is somewhat embryonic – as if the old Liverpool is suddenly poised …
Five Star Strikers: Suarez & Carroll compared to rivals!
