The Man Made of Glass | Daniel Sturridge

The Man Made of Glass | Daniel Sturridge

Against Aston Villa on Saturday, it was evident we lacked ‘something’ up front. I feel Sturridge is that ‘something’ – as well as Sterling, but he was on the bench. On Friday the 5th of September 2014, English striker Daniel Sturridge, Liverpool’s most prolific goal scorer in his first 50 games in the Premier league era, was declared injured with a thigh strain for up to three weeks*. *(If Sturridge is unfit for the entirety of three weeks, it would mean that …
Liverpool's Vice-Captaincy Conundrum

Liverpool's Vice-Captaincy Conundrum

As gracefully as he once glided up the pitch with the ball at his feet Daniel Agger has departed Liverpool to return to the club where his career began. His heavily tattooed body has finally given in to the demands of English football, demands which have seen him plagued by injuries, stopping him reaching the heights he was supposed …
The Flow is Back! Pass and Move, It's The Liverpool Groove

The Flow is Back! Pass and Move, It's The Liverpool Groove

It's taken a couple of games to get back into the momentum of the season. We saw some aspects of what we built up last season in the first couple of games, but only against Spurs did we see the real Liverpool. Everyone seemed to have a good feeling about Sunday, which wasn't surprising considering we now lead 12-0 on aggregate in the last three meetings. Brendan Rodgers definitely seems to have their number. The past three meetings have showcased …
Write-Off Liverpool FC at Your Peril!

Write-Off Liverpool FC at Your Peril!

Football has returned, finally! Club football I mean, the good stuff, the stuff that matters. Yes, the Premier League kicked off its new season last Saturday and, by now, all 20 clubs involved have played their opening two matches. The biggest game of the season so far took place on Monday night, when last year's Champions, Manchester City, took on and defeated the runners up in 2013/14, Liverpool FC. When evaluating how the final league standings might appear come the …
Markovic & Balotelli | They'll Hate Us for This

Markovic & Balotelli | They'll Hate Us for This

Initially, this article was to be written with the sole purpose of Lazar Markovic in mind. However, given light to recent events there is simply no way one can discuss the topic of piss boiling without mentioning the highly probable transfer of Mario Balotelli to Liverpool FC. A character of great myth, a man of much adoration, for the first time in quite a while it appears Liverpool are at the heart of something very special indeed. But first, our …
Welcome to The Sterling & Coutinho Show!

Welcome to The Sterling & Coutinho Show!

It has been said that the club will always be bigger than any one player and new heroes are born. In the past decade we have seen Owen, Torres and Suarez leave the club with fans wondering who will the next superstar to arrive at Anfield. Thankfully, we don’t need to look any further than our young dynamic duo of Raheem Sterling and Philippe Coutinho, who in my mind are going to take the Premier League by storm this season …
The Lucky Lucas Shirt

The Lucky Lucas Shirt

Rumours suggesting that Lucas Leiva could leave this summer may be music in the ears to some, in large part thanks to the massive regression in form shown by the Brazilian since the two long term injuries he suffered, and in some way has never truly recovered from. Sorry to be the party pooper but I'm not one of them, the news makes me slightly unhappy. It's not because I look at him and think he still has a lot …
Suso - Should He Stay or Should He Go?

Suso - Should He Stay or Should He Go?

Jesús Joaquín Fernández Sáez de la Torre. You might know him as Suso. A prime example of another young talent in an all too familiar situation. Is there room for him in the squad for the up-coming season or should he be loaned out again? Where would he go? After showing plenty of promise in 2012/13 he was slowly phased out by Rodgers due to the transitional situation of the club not particularly allowing for youth development. Suso has continued …
An In-Depth Look At The Squad | Liverpool FC

An In-Depth Look At The Squad | Liverpool FC

With the recent collapse of the Remy deal, and the subsequent signing of Dejan Lovren (Liverpool’s 7th first team centre-back), there’s hardly a greater time to look at squad depth. An analysis of any squad’s depth can be tricky. A popular rule of thumb would be two players per position, but when I think about squad depth, I have always felt this rule was slightly inadequate. How, for example, does this account for versatility among positions? With any one injury, a …
The Guinness International Champions Cup - What’s It All About?

The Guinness International Champions Cup - What’s It All About?

With the Liverpool squad currently touring the United States, I thought it would be a good idea to look into the Guinness International Champions Cup. This prestigious (if a pre-season kick-about can that) tournament is currently in just its second year after replacing the World Football Challenge twelve months ago, when Real Madrid won. The cup itself consists of eight high-end teams from Europe competing in 13 different venues (the old World Football Challenge had a more even split between …
