Liverpool Needs Its Own X-Factor To Progress

Liverpool Needs Its Own X-Factor To Progress

The Oxford Dictionary defines x-factor as “a variable in a given situation that could have the most significant impact on the outcome”. X-factors tend to be the difference between teams that win trophies, those who fail to make top 4 and those that end up being relegated. An x-factor of some sort is therefore a prerequisite for success for any football team. When Chelsea won the league last season they did so with a world class manager (Mourinho), world class …
Where will Liverpool be come August?

Where will Liverpool be come August?

What a difference 12 months makes.  This time last season Liverpool FC had come so close to winning the league and played the best attacking football seen at Anfield for 20 plus years.  Brendan Rodgers was considered a bold forward thinking manager with many big clubs closely 'monitoring'  his situation.  With the unexpected success, Rodgers supposedly negotiated a more powerful position at the club with the manager having a more controlling position in the say of transfers and the coaching set …

Steven Gerrard - The Best There Ever Will Be, According To...

There are some lies floating around lately, suggesting that Steven Gerrard is over-rated. Whilst some of the coverage given to his last game at Anfield might have been over the top, and were perhaps something Gerrard himself might have toned down given the choice, the respect he’s been given from his peers and football fans in general has been fitting. This was epitomised by the actions of the opposition players and fans during his Anfield swansong. Both teams lined up …

Brendan Rodgers - the Story of his Managerial Career

Brendan Rodgers - the Story of his Managerial Career

BRENDAN Rodgers has grown into one of the most exciting and respected managers in the Premier League. The Northern Irish born man grew up in Ballymena where he learnt and played football with his local side. In 1990, at the age of 17, Rodgers moved to Reading to further his career but it was halted instantaneous through injury and he failed to make an appearance for the English club. In 1995, after refusing to let football out of his life, …

But having sold arduous talisman Luis Suarez to Catalan giants Barcelona following a consecutive biting incident within …
Fixating on Liverpool's Fixtures

Fixating on Liverpool's Fixtures

All eyes are now, and have been for the last ten days or so, on events unfolding at the World Cup in Brazil. Thirty two nations, a fantastic location, some enthralling encounters and hitherto unrivalled coverage of all the action, have helped to shift focus away from matters domestic, for the short term at least. Meanwhile, back in Blighty, the home front has come grinding to halt (after Luis Suarez all but sealed England's somewhat inevitable fate over in Rio), …
