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 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 …

Liverpool FC Fans - Fragile: Handle With Care

It has been a very strange week in the life of being a Liverpool fan. Especially if you have a Twitter account. Oh boy, especially if you have a Twitter account. Following the defeat that ended, not only our unbeaten outset to 2014, but the incredible eleven game winning streak. The Premier League is also apparently out of our hands, hypothetically, but let us leave that topic aside for just a moment. Looking to place a bet? Place a bet …
Manager of the Year: Pulis or Rodgers?

Manager of the Year: Pulis or Rodgers?

As the Premier League draws to a close, the annual award ceremonies will soon begin with accolades awarded to the highest performing managers and players. While many fans' opinions are split, ultimately the eventual winners are unanimously chosen by their peers, journalists and professionals alike, with very little doubt about the players and managers in question. However, this season has seen two candidates stirring debate with regards to who the manager of the season is: Tony Pulis and Brendan Rodgers? …

Martin Skrtel: The tale of the unlikely hero

Martin Skrtel: The tale of the unlikely hero

It's always a heart-in-your-mouth moment - Martin Skrtel catches your eye, with his arms around an opposition striker, with only seconds to go. More often than not this season, it's a defensive move that's been effective enough to manage those last minute free-kicks that could have changed a lot of results for us, and who would have thought it? It was only the start of this season that the rumours of Skrtel potentially moving on were becoming more evident, mostly …
Johnson and Johnson | Both Sides of The Glen

Johnson and Johnson | Both Sides of The Glen

Former Liverpool coach Kevin Keen recently declared in an interview with BBC 5 Live, that Glen Johnson has been “outstanding” for the club this season, and he’s not the only one to be praising the Liverpool and England right-back. This article on Sky Sports described him as one of the most effective full backs in the league, with The Daily Telegraph even linking him with a move to Real Madrid, and you half to be half-decent to play for them. …
Liverpool's Progress: A Case Study

Liverpool's Progress: A Case Study

Brendan Rodgers' first league campaign at the helm started very slowly with three losses and two draws in our first five games and although things did get better as the season went on, we only managed to finish seventh and were left as outside contenders for even fourth this season. The most frustrating part of the 2012/2013 season were the games when we would absolutely dominate teams but only come out with a draw or nick a goal for a …
Brendan Rodgers and the Counter Narratives

Brendan Rodgers and the Counter Narratives

From the first moment Brendan Rodgers was appointed as the new manager of Liverpool Football Club, fans angry with FSG for sacking a club legend couldn't wait to see him fail. First, his team played too many passes sideways. Then, Rodgers was ‘too idealistic’. He talked too much, had no Plan B and up until we could routinely thrash them, we couldn’t beat the league’s top sides. And so on, and so on. Now that the quibblers have been dismissed …

Brendan Rodgers and The Transfer Committee | The Outgoings

Doubters. Something Brendan Rodgers has had to deal with throughout his brief period as Liverpool manager. Whether it be his credentials, his methods, his transfer signings, his bosses, or his vocabulary, there is nothing that has escaped the manager from ridicule. With particular regards to transfers, fans have spoken themselves to death in discussing who to sign, how much they are worth, how Ian Ayre will mess it up, what is a transfer committee, and how come we didn't sign …
