Financial Doping & Arsenal's Wasteful Splurge

Financial Doping & Arsenal's Wasteful Splurge

John W Henry’s famous tweet directed at Arsenal came to mind this week. “What do you think they’re smoking at the Emirates?” he wrote when the London club tried to prise Luis Suarez away from Anfield for £40 million plus £1 a decade ago. The Gunners may be making FSG’s top dog uncomfortable again. Arsenal’s spending spree is being watched by Liverpool supporters, many of whom are sceptical that Henry will open the purse strings for Jurgen Klopp this summer. …

Favourite LFC Signings And Worst LFC Departures: Good Buys and Goodbyes: Part 1

I assume, gentle reader, that you, like me, are a hopeless consumer. It's not our fault. Decades of crass commercialism, manipulative media advertising and force-fed capitalistic ideology have taught us to crave the next purchase and moulded us into believing that the next shiny thing will be the one that finally fills the yawning void in our cynical 21st century souls. Cars, clothes, books and kayaks are how I self-medicate, for example. I know, it sounds just as mental to …

So this is apparently a 'poor' Mo Salah season

The 2022/23 season isn't one that will live long in the memory for Liverpool fans, with many no doubt wanting it erased from their minds in a similar way to the 2020/21 campaign. It's been just as grim at times, only with crowds present.

LFC Players That Deserved More England Recognition 

LFC Players That Deserved More England Recognition 

In the light of Trent Alexander Arnold’s latest England International snub, it’s a continuation of the question as to whether he deserves to be there or not. With a mere 18-caps to his name, the 23-year-old has consistently remained either the third or fourth choice in Gareth Southgate’s eyes. As it stands, this season is far more in keeping with this new omission, however his world class performances in the four seasons prior, make the overall decision questionable. Over the …

The Brilliance of Steve McManaman

The Brilliance of Steve McManaman

When listening to Champions League matches on BT Sport, there’s perhaps younger viewers unsure of the ex footballer on co-commentary. For the past few seasons a certain Scouse voice has echoed through the midweek coverage, and everyone should be made aware of what this man was, as a player himself. When thinking of the former Liverpool player, Steve McManaman, I try not to immerse myself too much into what he offers from the gantry, but the absolute brilliance he brought …
