Xabi Alonso: The Pass Master

Xabi Alonso: The Pass Master

We thought it may never happen again. But last weekend we all got to watch Xabi Alonso play at Anfield one last time, as he took to the pitch for Liverpool's all-star charity game and inevitably,  received a standing ovation. Labelled as "the passmaster", the Spaniard arrived at Liverpool young and relatively unknown, developing under Rafa Benitez and left as one of the best midfielders on the planet. Regardless of the underlying reasons of why he prematurely decided to leave, …

Liverpool's Loan Star Status | Who's Likely To Stay or Go?

Liverpool's Loan Star Status | Who's Likely To Stay or Go?

Amidst the heady concoction of blistering pace, razor sharp attacking and, at times, haphazard defending served up by the Liverpool first team over the past season, it may have been easy to forget that the Reds also had  twelve players out on loan at various clubs, domestically, across Europe, and even in South America. Liverpool's success in securing a second place finish and, with it, automatic Champions League qualification has made it an absolute necessity to add quality and depth …

Pepe Reina To Leave Liverpool On Loan: Two Sides To The Story

Pepe Reina has confirmed via a public farewell message that he will be leaving Liverpool for Napoli on loan for the duration of next season. Speculation over the future of the Liverpool goalkeeper has been frequent of late, first when his head was turned by the possibility of playing for Barcelona and most recently with the purchase of Simon Mignolet, a young and proven Premier League goalkeeper who amounts to more than just backup. (Check out our Reina v Mignolet comparison!) …

Liverpool's MVP: Pepe Reina | Opta Stats

Liverpool's MVP: Pepe Reina | Opta Stats

Nearly but not quite. That was the 2008/9 Barclays Premiere League season which made the hope in Red's hearts rise so very high. Certainly did mine. Saturday 14th March, as I entered the channel tunnel returning from a trip to Rotterdam, I was one happy red. I'd just had a text confirming a 4-1 humilation (to quote the BBC) of our bitterest foes in their own backyard. And was that right? Dossena had applied the coup de grace? Good times! …
Liverpool FC | What's stopping Pepe Reina?

Liverpool FC | What's stopping Pepe Reina?

With Liverpool sat in sixth place, three points off of fourth placed Chelsea and an inferior goal difference to the sides above them in the table, what do we need to improve on to get into a Champions League spot? A meagre goal difference of +4 has stemmed from home draws with Sunderland, Norwich and Swansea. While the attackers have failed to perform their duty of finding the net this season, the defence has also made costly mistakes and one …

Unlike previous seasons Liverpool have had to use three captains, due to injuries and suspension to our normal candidate Steven Gerrard. So far in Gerrard’s absence Jamie Carragher Liverpool’ s vice captain has taken the step up, but in both of their absences fan’s favourite Pepe Reina has made the arm band his own. But which captain has had the most success this season? Jamie Carragher, has the highest win percentage as skipper at 55%, while Reina is placed in …
