Three games in six days represents a tough week for any team, even Liverpool. A midweek date with Ancelotti’s “Galacticos Mark II” was never going to be plain sailing, and the distraction (albeit a welcome one) of playing the planet’s biggest club, made team selection for Saturday’s league match (against Hull) all the more difficult […]

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 […]

To some, the midfield area is one which is overrated. One can look at how many goals a respective team has scored that season, and how many they kept out. Of course, while these spectators acknowledge the importance of a great middle unit, if you are substantially stronger in the first and final thirds, the […]

It was a dreary and grey night in Dublin’s Aviva Stadium which welcomed the clash between Glasgow Celtic lookalike Shamrock Rovers, and the Premier League runner up, Liverpool FC.

You don’t have to wait until the second half here for a game to open up and that is good for me.” Michu Traditionally, people think of English football as direct, as physical, as high intensity and sometimes a battle.

When Brendan Rodgers first arrived at Anfield, he did something that few managers have done before him; he met with the fans and in every interview he tried to explain his vision for Liverpool and hoped it would stick. He did this in order to educate us, to bring us on the journey as we […]
