Liverpool FC: Eyes On The Prize?

Liverpool FC: Eyes On The Prize?

Even though Liverpool might not be able to attract star names in the ilk of Götze, Mkhitaryan and more, Liverpool should be aiming for nothing less than top prize this season. Leicester’s success last season might well have been a flash in the pan, however, the success of the likes of Spurs, Southampton and West Ham should draw attention to how the league has become competitive overall. With this competitiveness, there has been weakening of the stronghold of the usual …
Liverpool Transfers: It's Not About The Money, Money, Money

Liverpool Transfers: It's Not About The Money, Money, Money

Mohammed Salah, Alexis Sanchez, Willian, Clint Dempsey, Diego Costa, Memphis Depay, Henrikh Mkhitaryan, Alex Teixeira, Ousmane Dembele. Different nationalities, positions on the field, huge talent / big names, and plenty of contrasts to one another. But among all these names, there is one common denominator. Liverpool’s failed transfers. Salah, Diego Costa, and Willian eventually went to Chelsea, Sanchez chose Arsenal, Depay went to Manchester United, Mkhitaryan and Dembele to Borussia Dortmund, Alex Teixeira to China for the peking duck, and …
Reality Check - Calling all Liverpool fans

Reality Check - Calling all Liverpool fans

Always in the News I don’t have any stats to back this up, or facts to prove my theory, but Liverpool seem to be involved with the most transfer rumours throughout every window.  Yes, I’m obviously a Liverpool fan so I look for Liverpool news, which leads me to Liverpool stories, but I still think we dominate the headlines during the summer months with links to countless players. So why would this be?  Is it a result of our fan-base …
FSG Have Failed to Deliver

FSG Have Failed to Deliver

If ever there was a headline to cause debate this is it. No doubt many will read the title of this piece and either strongly agree or disagree without reading the bloody article. In the last few years I have strongly defended FSG and also given them heavy criticism. There are things they have done very well and things they have done very poorly. Let’s begin with the positives. On 15th October 2010, much to all our relief, FSG, then …
The Day that Klopp built

The Day that Klopp built

What the F*ck was that?! Not the most eloquent of headings, I know, but it's how I feel.  I doubt I’m alone. What happened at Anfield last night?  It was fairytale stuff, with the Hollywood finish.  It was the kind of scenario I would have joked about with friends before the game.  Needing to win 4-3, being two down at half-time, and bagging the winner in injury time. Fantastically, ridiculously, brilliantly, amazing. A Night to Remember Yesterday (Thursday) - the …
Tactical Analysis: Liverpool 4 Borussia Dortmund 0

Tactical Analysis: Liverpool 4 Borussia Dortmund 0

It is important to preface this analysis by saying the Bundesliga season doesn’t start until the week after the Premier League, so Borussia Dortmund were seven days behind in their physical preparation. However, at times, Rodgers’ Liverpool made them look like they had never played football before, with the exquisite movement, technical ability and break-neck speed of the attacking play. Line-Ups: Liverpool:  Mignolet, Johnson, Skrtel, Lovren, Manquillo, Gerrard, Henderson, Sterling, Coutinho, Can, Sturridge. Subs: Brad Jones, Jose Enrique, Toure, Lambert, …
What can Shakhtar man Mkhitaryan bring to Liverpool?

What can Shakhtar man Mkhitaryan bring to Liverpool?

For his country, he’s their standout player while at club level, in a side packed with talent from Ukraine and South America, he’s shone when he’s needed to. It’s fair to say that Henrikh Mkhitaryan is a star for both Armenia and Shakhtar Donetsk. Primarily an attacking midfielder, he can also play as a second striker, and his record with the reigning Ukrainian champions is impressive. Since starting for Mircea Lucescu’s side back in 2010 following a £5m move from …
