Five observations from Man Utd vs Liverpool

Five observations from Man Utd vs Liverpool

Writing an article like this is never easy after a horrific viewing of an abysmal display against one of your biggest rival’s both for league positions and pride. To make matters even worse, I was surrounded by a family of Manchester United supports who jumped on my back (not literally) when it came to every decision and goal which went their way. So, without further ado, let’s see what us as fans gathered from the meeting between United and Liverpool …
Mario's Red Nightmare

Mario's Red Nightmare

When Mario Balotelli signed for Liverpool last year, to say opinion was divided would be an understatement. Some thought it was disaster waiting to happen whilst others believed it would be Mario's time to shine. Loved by an adoring, famously loyal fan base, he would finally show the world his talent on a football pitch. Become a hero. A Liverpool legend. Fast forward twelve months and the issues are different and opinion is still divided. Last season saw the Italian …
The Mario Balotelli debacle is bad for business

The Mario Balotelli debacle is bad for business

One week before the Premier League season kicks off and James Pearce's Blood Red article made its appearance on the Liverpool echo website. It was supposed to be about Rickie Lambert leaving but that wouldn't have caused controversy so for an added bonus he decided to have a pop at Mario Balotelli. He quickly swept under the rug the fact the Italian had scored more goals in less outings than the diehard Liverpool fan with the Liverbird tattoo.

Are Liverpool in a Perpetual State of Transition?

Are Liverpool in a Perpetual State of Transition?

Evolution is inevitable. In football and in everyday life you change to adapt. So what's the difference between transition as a club and evolving? Why are some teams praised for adapting whilst others use being in transition as an excuse? Since Brendan Rodgers took the helm of Liverpool FC it feels like 'Liverpool are in transition' is one of the most overused sentences for fans and pundits alike. Many pin this on Brendan Rodgers, others like to associate the blame …
A GAME OF THRONES - Who will sit beside the Anfield Throne?

A GAME OF THRONES - Who will sit beside the Anfield Throne?

With Brendan Rodgers backed by FSG and secure as Liverpool Manager who is going to accompany him and who will wave goodbye. As we know there has already been two cut throat departures of backroom staff, Colin Pascoe and Mike Marsh fell victim to last season’s shortcomings. Brendan’s court is going to be a lot different come that exciting first BPL fixture, away at the Potteries. The appointment of unproven Sean O’Driscoll has caused some concern amongst fans but with …
Rodgers and the Committee; Friends with Benefits?

Rodgers and the Committee; Friends with Benefits?

The much maligned 'duo' of Brendan Rodgers and the Liverpool transfer committee have taken much criticism over the past 12 months. To summarise it, the Liverpool fan base is pretty much divided by which side of the fence you take refuge on. Are you someone who sympathises with Brendan Rodgers having to find room in his squad for the committee signings? Alternatively, are you someone who finds it bewildering that Rodgers doesn't fully utilise all of the tools afforded to …

Liverpool's Summer Signings Review

Liverpool's Summer Signings Review

Brendan Rodgers and the mysterious Transfer Committee spent over 100 million during the summer of 2014. After selling star-man, Luis Suarez, for a hefty fee no Liverpool fan was too worried. Money had been spent and hopes were high that another title tilt could be launched. Now a season on and expectations have been well and truly stomped on. A sixth place finish and horrific final few weeks have left many wondering what is next for Rodgers and Liverpool. A …
Bring Klopp to the Kop to Replace the Failing Rodgers

Bring Klopp to the Kop to Replace the Failing Rodgers

Many moons ago (roughly ten), last season ended in glorious failure, of sorts, for Liverpool Football Club and its fans. That failure (to get a point against Chelsea/to keep a lead against Palace) was however, very much tempered by the fact that nobody had truly expected us to ever have been in the position which would have made such a heart-wrenchingly tragic collapse possible. Yes, we were buoyed, despite not winning the title; kept afloat by the fact we'd come …
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 …
