Adam Lallana - A Guide to Liverpool’s Latest Signing

Whilst the World Cup continues to enthral and delight us all with its late goals and tight penalty shootouts, the transfer window has finally opened up and clubs are now rapidly tying up their new stars, with contracts finally able to be signed. Adam Lallana was finally confirmed as a Liverpool player on the 1st July and he is now the name on everyone’s lips. Liverpool’s new man will be well known to many of us who have watched the …
To Sell or not to Sell? The Suarez Saga Continues

To Sell or not to Sell? The Suarez Saga Continues

The family man, the player, the genius, the maestro, the hero. The scared little boy, the street-fighter, the biter, the cannibal, the liability, the villain. Choose any of these nouns to label Liverpool's number seven (Uruguay's number nine) and you may think you are on the right track, however even if you choose all of them, you're still only likely to have half an idea about what drives arguably the most naturally gifted, inventive and enigmatic footballer to come out …
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), …
Liverpool Perspective: England Vs Italy Preview

Liverpool Perspective: England Vs Italy Preview

The time is nearly upon us. At 11pm on Saturday night Steven Gerrard will lead Roy Hodgson’s England side out of the tunnel at the Arena Amazonia for their opening Group D game against Italy. The last time these two sides met in an international tournament the game ended 0-0 with Italy winning on penalties. It will all be different this time though right? I mean there could be as many as 6 Liverpool players starting, however ,with Roy in …
Transfers, Transfers, Everywhere!

Transfers, Transfers, Everywhere!

Or so everybody with a Twitter account will have you believe. The difficulty, as we know, is getting the right deals done. It's fair to say, however, that Liverpool have moved relatively quickly in the transfer market and have secured two very different types of players.  One in Emre Can who fits the profile of FSG and Brendan Rodgers. The other is Rickie Lambert, who quite frankly does not. I say that because ever since Fenway Sports Group bought Liverpool …
Simon Mignolet - Is he still good enough? A comparison to rivals

Simon Mignolet - Is he still good enough? A comparison to rivals

Earlier in the season, following Liverpool's 2-1 defeat at Manchester City, I wrote an article looking at Simon Mignolet's first season up to that point as the Reds' first choice goalkeeper following his summer move from Sunderland. At the time he had just made himself public enemy number one to a group of fans (oh how there have been many in that position this season), and questions were being asked. Since that article was published, have his performances improved? Have …
Liverpool's Defensive Errors - Mis-shapes, Mistakes, Misfits

Liverpool's Defensive Errors - Mis-shapes, Mistakes, Misfits

On looking at the league table, it would be easy to blame Liverpool’s failure to win the title on their defence. It would be easy to do, partly because it’s true. However, there are many things to take into account when analysing why a team concedes the goals they do. What follows is a look at Liverpool’s defensive errors in comparison with other teams, and a brief look at whether the mistakes are systemic or the fault of individuals. Team …
Brendan Rodgers and The Transfer Committee: The Criteria

Brendan Rodgers and The Transfer Committee: The Criteria

The dust has yet to settle on the wild and wondrous campaign of 2013/14, yet the transfer rumour mill is in full swing; with Liverpool its traditional epicentre. However, among the traditional nonsensical reports of Ricardo Quaresma finally sealing his move to Liverpool and Simao finally receiving the call from Senor Rafa to board that plane, Kopites have taken to social media sites, forums and pubs to discuss just who is needed at Anfield next season; coupled with those to …
Match Report: Shamrock Rovers 0 Liverpool 4

Match Report: Shamrock Rovers 0 Liverpool 4

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. Liverpool fielded a relatively weakened side as all the first team players who have been selected for their respective countries to take part in this summer's FIFA World Cup were left on Merseyside. The starting eleven featured three loanees who came straight into Brendan Rodgers' side including Fabio Borini, Jordon Ibe …
A Henderson-sized gap: How we've fared without him | Stats

A Henderson-sized gap: How we've fared without him | Stats

A soul-destroying week has brought our title hopes down from cloud nine to only a slight chance of glory. The two results against Chelsea and Crystal Palace have gifted Manchester City an unbelievable chance of regaining the Premier League title - and even though we'll be cheering on Villa and West Ham like they're our own, it's going to need a miracle to get the trophy back to Anfield. Then again, we know all about them don't we? You could …
