Chaos-Kitchen: Shooting-up the Table

Chaos-Kitchen: Shooting-up the Table

Delicate. Intricate. Profligate. Manchester City's candy-cane tower has come crumbling down. Forget City's Soufflé-style of calculated luxury: we've entered Jürgen's Black Forest Gateau of Mayhem. High-class  pomp has been decimated by working-class passion as the Moneyball-marauding FSG out-bought City's billions in all areas. On sponsors alone, Liverpool's Subway, Gatorade and Dunkin' Donuts deals dwarf against the likes of City's Nike, Aabar and Etihad Airlines. Put this against a backdrop of City's £150-million-spend in summer 2015 alone and Liverpool's victory was more than a football match: it was a …
Brendan Rodgers: Presenting the Facts

Brendan Rodgers: Presenting the Facts

For the dwindling number of Liverpool supporters who still had faith in Brendan Rodgers or were still willing to give him another chance this season, it seems the timid defeat away to Manchester United was the straw that broke the camel’s back. His backing amongst the fan base is now in Roy Hodgson territory. There was a lot of anger from fans following the defeat, and manner of it, at Old Trafford. Myself, I’m finding it hard to get angry …
Manchester United vs Liverpool: The Autopsy

Manchester United vs Liverpool: The Autopsy

At the start of the season I thought I'd do a weekly tactical piece on the previous game. Primarily looking at the attack and how Christian Benteke and Roberto Firmino were bedding in with their new teammates. The United game was horrific to watch and although I tried I couldn't really find anything tactically to be positive about. Instead, my notes happened to be filled with negatives and I hate it because usually I find a few things that I …
Liverpool's Horror Show Tactics

Liverpool's Horror Show Tactics

From a very early age we're all exposed to the 'happy ever after' theory. Beast gets the Beauty. Pinocchio ends up being a real boy. Rocky Balboa defeats everybody. Danny Ocean and his 10 friends get away after robbing the Bellagio Casino, and a random player winning a jackpot at Red Flush online casino. Liverpool beat AC Milan in Istanbul. Hard work, bravery and a bit of luck and you can achieve anything. We all harboured hope that Steven Gerrard would …
Why Liverpool Should Take the Europa League Seriously

Why Liverpool Should Take the Europa League Seriously

The Europa League. It's a competition that splits opinion. Nothing new amongst the Liverpool fan base but belittling a European competition is a new one to me. Many fans this season want Liverpool to concentrate on the Premier League and try to finish in the top 4. It's admirable, but is it realistic? Will Liverpool break last season's top 4? It's a big ask in my opinion especially when the lesser of the top 4 sides, Man United, have strengthened …
How do Liverpool win the Premier League? 'The Bottom 14 Teams'

How do Liverpool win the Premier League? 'The Bottom 14 Teams'

How do Liverpool win the league?  A little too ambitious? Perhaps. But I feel it is better to aim for the stars.  If you drop short then you are guaranteed Top 4 and that coveted Champions' League spot.  Aim for Top 4 and miss and well........ We all know what happens next.  Let us be honest, to win the league now would mean that everything would need to click and fall into place.  Or does it?  What can we do …
Rodgers Has 99 Problems and Big Games Are One!

Rodgers Has 99 Problems and Big Games Are One!

Nearing the end of a forgetful season it's easy to do one of two things; either remind yourself of the poor start of the season or at every given opportunity brag about the unbeaten streak we had at the start of 2015. In isolation both tell a completely different story but the season should be judged as a whole and it's interesting to see that in the big games for The Reds they've not matched expectation or performed as expected. …
Liverpool v Manchester United | Premier League Preview

Liverpool v Manchester United | Premier League Preview

I’ve heard some crazy things in my time as a football fan.  Some say that Real Madrid v. Barcelona is the best match-up in the world.  From the same country, the Madrid derby has been brought into consideration in recent years.  Others will mention the Milan derby, the London derbies.  Even the Merseyside derby has been considered one of the best rivalries of all-time.  But when Manchester United come to Anfield on Sunday, the entire world will be watching.  Two …
