Liverpool FC's 24 Years in the Wilderness

Sterling is Money

"This does not f***ing slip now. "Listen. Listen. This is gone. We go to Norwich. Exactly the same. We go again. Come on!" Steven Gerrard delivered the aforementioned words following the most dramatic ninety minutes of Premier League football this season. His side had let slip a two goal lead versus league chasers Manchester City, but a 78th minute striker from Philippe Coutinho edged the Reds further up the hill with the final score reading Liverpool 3-2 Manchester City. As …
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 …

April 1964: 50 Years On, Liverpool Seek to Relive the Past

As Liverpool FC take the field to take on Spurs on March 30th it will be exactly 50 years to the day since they also faced their North London opponents on the same patch of green Anfield turf. Back in 1964, The Beatles were number one in the charts with Can't Buy Me Love and Bill Shankly’s Reds were looking to make it a maximum three wins in four days over the Easter weekend, following their 3-1 win at Spurs …
Liverpool FC - They've Got The Balls!

Liverpool FC - They've Got The Balls!

As a 34 year old Liverpool fan with a dodgy ticker, the last few years have been relatively easy to get through, stress wise. We haven't been that great and we haven't had much to play for at the business end of the season. Sure we've had times where we've played well and yes, we've had the derbies and the big team games to get excited about but compared to this season, we've had very little to get excited about. …
Why has 89 replaced 63 as Liverpool's new Magic Number?

Why has 89 replaced 63 as Liverpool's new Magic Number?

Neil Poole explains the significance of the number 63 in Liverpool’s recent history and why 89 is now the new number on the block. The complete irrelevance of the number 63 in the world is quite startling. At best, it’s the year that Joseph of Arimathea went to Glastonbury on the first Christian mission to Britain. Back then you could still pay somebody £10 to climb a ladder over the fence. There was no sitting on ‘GetRinsedTicketing.Com’ for two days …

Brendan Rodgers and the rebirth of Steven Gerrard

Brendan Rodgers and the rebirth of Steven Gerrard

At a time where many of us are patting ourselves on the back and saying, "I told you Brendan Rodgers was the man for us" and watching in admiration at how he is helping return us to our perch, I feel it is only right that I hold my hands up and admit to an area of his management that I didn't agree with and one I have spoken about on numerous previous occasions. That area is shaped like the …
Daniel Sturridge | Witness the Brendan Rodgers Effect

Daniel Sturridge | Witness the Brendan Rodgers Effect

Daniel Sturridge was a promising youngster at Manchester City when he first made his name. He didn’t manage to fulfil his potential as he never really got to play in his desired position or some could argue his attitude was not right. Sturridge just wasn’t cutting it at Manchester City even though it was reported that Mark Hughes was keen on keeping the young striker. This is when Chelsea came in for the youngster who had yet to fully show …
