How Gerrard Made Me a Liverpool Fan

How Gerrard Made Me a Liverpool Fan

This article is going to be a lot different than what I normally write up or tweet. It’s not going to be an analysis, it’s not going to be a tactical discussion, it’s not going to be a player profile, and it’s not going to be an opinionated piece that gets people to churn their thoughts. In light of Steven Gerrard’s retirement from football as a professional player, I felt it was only right to honour the incredible journey of …
Liverpool's Rollercoaster Ride Ends - Consistency Inevitable

Liverpool's Rollercoaster Ride Ends - Consistency Inevitable

It’s been a very entertaining year for Liverpool fans across all seven corners of the world so far. Scintillating games from October last year with masterful performances against Chelsea, Manchester City, Villareal and Borussia Dortmund, followed by disappointing results against West Ham, Watford, Southampton and Newcastle was indeed a rollercoaster ride last season, as said by plenty of Reds when Liverpool Football Club decided to part ways with incumbent Celtic manager Brendan Rodgers, and appointed who is probably their biggest …
Klopp's Resilient Reds?

Klopp's Resilient Reds?

Brittle, frail, delicate, on the brink of collapse and similar to a Creme Brulee with that soft centre are just a few of the creative ways the Liverpool defence has been described over the years. They're not wrong either, not since the days of Rafa Benitez and Kenny Dalglish's second stint as Liverpool manager have the Reds shown any sort of resiliency when it comes to defending. You can quote the number of clean sheets the team have had all you …
Ben Woodburn: Liverpool's Rising Talent

Ben Woodburn: Liverpool's Rising Talent

Ben Woodburn has been making headlines recently after great cameos for Liverpool in their first two pre-season games against Tranmere Rovers and Fleetwood Town. The 16-year old (yes, he’s just 16) Welshman has produced a fine performance in both games and has surprised many Liverpool fans who don’t regularly follow the club’s academy teams. And even before he made his senior bow for Liverpool, he scored a goal against Cardiff City during their FA Youth Cup campaign that went viral …
Europe and the League - Klopp's superb Juggling act

Europe and the League - Klopp's superb Juggling act

Liverpool's Premier League season petered out towards the end with all efforts going towards setting the players up to have the best chance possible of winning the Europa League. Reds boss Jurgen Klopp decided to field weakened sides in six of the last eight league fixtures, fully utilising the youngsters within the squad to enable the 'first teamers' longer breaks between games. Four wins, three draws and a single defeat isn't a bad return all things considered. It worked, to …
James Milner: Divisive, but increasingly brilliant

James Milner: Divisive, but increasingly brilliant

I have spent the whole of James Milner’s long and illustrious career trying to decide how good he is at football. He has forever baffled me. He was tipped as England’s new wonderkid when he burst onto the scene for Leeds United back in the early 2000s, but barring a few glimpses of class, I remained unconvinced. His spells at Newcastle and Aston Villa seemed to pass me by a little - I was too busy obsessing about how good …
Emre Can, a risk worth taking?

Emre Can, a risk worth taking?

Less than a month ago, Liverpool had beaten Borussia Dortmund at Anfield in one of the most spectacular games in recent memory. Subsequently, Liverpool became favourites to win the Europa League and secure a Champions League spot, under the guidance of Jürgen Klopp. The following two league victories, against Bournemouth and Everton, led many to believe that Liverpool would coast their way through the remaining league games and Europa League semi-final matches without the injured Emre Can; but horrorshow displays against …
Liverpool Need To Convert Leads into Victories - It's Not Easy

Liverpool Need To Convert Leads into Victories - It's Not Easy

If it happens once you can pass it off as being normal. You're told that It happens to everybody and not to worry about it. You nod in agreement at the reassurance being offered. If the same problem continuously happens then you have two choices; bury your head, pretend it's normal and carry on nodding or actually acknowledge there's an issue and look to rectify it. Liverpool have a few problems, too many to state and if you attempted to …
Wake Me Up When The Season Ends

Wake Me Up When The Season Ends

What a season this has been and I don’t mean for good reasons. The highlight this season has undoubtedly been Jurgen Klopp’s arrival at Anfield, but other than that it has been a season to forget for the Reds. Every time we as fans seem to get a little bit excited, we come crashing down to earth. It’s been the story of the season. A season I, for one, can’t wait to be over. Form If you look in the …
Lallana: A Force Awoken

Lallana: A Force Awoken

Since Klopp’s arrival, it's been a tale of ups and downs at Liverpool. Unconvincing performances in the Europa League were forgotten as qualification into the knock-out stages was secured and impressive thrashings of Southampton, Manchester City and Chelsea showcased Liverpool’s potential quality. However, disappointing results against Watford, Crystal Palace, Newcastle and West Ham in the Premier League, were signs that “Klopp mania” wasn't the fairy tale everyone thought it would be. Liverpool's Capital One Cup semi-final clash against Stoke City …
