Liverpool FC: More Than Just a Football Club

Liverpool FC: More Than Just a Football Club

On Thursday afternoon, Liverpool FC's Twitter account tweeted a video of the new CEO, Peter Moore, detailing how Liverpool FC would be a proud member of Liverpool Pride: https://twitter.com/LFC/status/888042309505470464 I was not prepared for the comments that followed in response to the tweet. Similarly, the same type of comments were directed at Peter Moore, who also tweeted the same video. Initially, taken aback, I remembered that intolerance and homophobia within football are something that, even now, in 2017, is a prevalent …
Liverpool in 2016/17: Has Progress Been Made?

Liverpool in 2016/17: Has Progress Been Made?

With an international break ensuring that there’s no Premier League football this weekend, and with nine games to go in a finely poised season, this is the perfect time to assess Liverpool’s season, where it’s at and what we need to do in our final few games, as well as our general development under Jürgen Klopp. This article will look at how the season has gone so far, what’s left for the club to do, and whether or not significant …
Guess Who's Back ...Back Again: Liverpool FC

Guess Who's Back ...Back Again: Liverpool FC

No, the title isn't autobiographical; although admittedly, it has been quite a while since my last piece for Anfield Index. What am I on about then? Well, I think it's pretty obvious; I'm sure you'll agree, it's time to talk about the resurgence of Liverpool FC. Days before the first leg of the Borussia Dortmund quarter final, I found myself quite perturbed, somewhat pissed off, and fairly bemused at what I was hearing, and reading, from some, on how the …
Klopp's Words Show he's the Right Man for Liverpool FC!

Klopp's Words Show he's the Right Man for Liverpool FC!

"I'd really like to change my personality but I can't forget this fucking lose (loss) against Crystal Palace"
The words above exclaimed by Jürgen Klopp when pushed on how he thinks his opening spell at Liverpool has begun. "Until now, it's been ok ..... if we had won this, maybe I would have said that it was more than ok." That's why he's the perfect man to take the Liverpool forward: the right man, at the right time, for …
The More Things Change, the More they Stay the Same for Liverpool FC

The More Things Change, the More they Stay the Same for Liverpool FC

Seven points from three games represented an excellent start to the new season for Liverpool Football Club and, its embattled manager, Brendan Rodgers. A battling if blunt display against Stoke, followed by an unconvincing showing against Bournemouth had delivered 6 points from 6, before the Reds turned in an impressive display away at the Emirates. Things were looking decent-ish, at least in terms of results, and the performances seemed to be improving. Step forward West Ham at Anfield! Saturday's absolute …
Bring Klopp to the Kop to Replace the Failing Rodgers

Bring Klopp to the Kop to Replace the Failing Rodgers

Many moons ago (roughly ten), last season ended in glorious failure, of sorts, for Liverpool Football Club and its fans. That failure (to get a point against Chelsea/to keep a lead against Palace) was however, very much tempered by the fact that nobody had truly expected us to ever have been in the position which would have made such a heart-wrenchingly tragic collapse possible. Yes, we were buoyed, despite not winning the title; kept afloat by the fact we'd come …
