Liverpool's Youth and the Relevant

Liverpool's Youth and the Relevant

Morale is at an all-time low for the fans, the determination of our first team players is depleting after every poor result, and our manager seems to have run out of ideas. It seems like Liverpool has reached a dangerous place, we have lost the Champions League spot and we have nothing else to look forward to. This is the time where the hungry, passionate, and youthful players should come out and be allowed to show what they've got and …
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 …
Judge Yr'self - The Key Decisions of Scouts And Owners

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 …
An Open Letter To Brendan Rodgers

An Open Letter To Brendan Rodgers

Dear Brendan, Let me start by saying I like you as the manager of my beloved football club. I admire you for giving young players with high potential a chance to flourish and I have to admit after watching you for 3 years now, you’ve turned some youngsters into better players. Last season you almost won us the title. Or should I say your world class strike partnership nearly won us the league? Although, what I admire most about you, …
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 …
A summer of prudence for Liverpool FC

A summer of prudence for Liverpool FC

Here on Anfield Index, Sam McGuire has written an excellent piece on how perfectly suited Kevin De Bruyne would be for Liverpool. I would like to echo those sentiments: he would an exciting and potentially fantastic acquisition. Unfortunately though, I think that De Bruyne, like Alexandre Lacazette, will not be heading to Anfield this summer. Personally, I think we’ll see a summer of prudence in the transfer market and with us needing a goalkeeper, back-up left back, right back, central …
A Career Resurgence For Mario Balotelli?

A Career Resurgence For Mario Balotelli?

Mario Balotelli is well known for his attitude problems and lack of effort during football matches. When Liverpool signed the Italian in the summer transfer window, everyone knew it was going to be a gamble, would Mario play well for Liverpool or would he refuse to provide a pressing style of play? Throughout the season LFC fans have been wondering whether Mario Balotelli would ever begin to chase the ball and put any effort in whatsoever, and I think it is …

The Liverpool Triumvirate | Overview of Sakho, Can, Skrtel et al

With the exception of relegation battlers, you would be hard-pressed to find a defence in the league that has come under the same level of scrutiny as Liverpool. Whether it’s Neville or Carragher on a Monday night, or the ingenious Alan Shearer perceptively offering some of his innovative, ever-insightful though perpetually crap “analysis” on a Saturday night – we have heard it all since the beginning of Rodgers' tenure at the club. The undeniable yet fundamental elephant in the room …
Liverpool v West Ham | Premier League Preview

Liverpool v West Ham | Premier League Preview

After an abysmal showing at Boleyn Park, the Reds face West Ham at Anfield Saturday evening. We’ve got a different story to tell this time out concerning form; back in the “wish we could forget it” month of September, Liverpool registered no Premier League wins. In fact, the only 3 points taken from that month came from the 2-1 Ludogorets win that’s scarcely memorable. The Hammers, on the other hand, were just hitting their stride that led to a Champions …
Wide Box to Box Midfielder | Crucial To Liverpool

Wide Box to Box Midfielder | Crucial To Liverpool

The term box to box is used to describe a midfielder who has no specialist role, they're primarily an engine tasked with helping both sides of the teams' game. They're also more commonly found in the centre of the pitch, but could the change of formation to the 3421 formation mean Liverpool could deploy wide box to box midfielders? Midfielders to arrive late but instead of overlapping they'd 'underlap' and take up a position inside of the box that Pablo …
