A Banquet Without Wine - Book Review

A Banquet Without Wine by Anthony Stanley Book Review by Shane Clancy for AnfieldIndex.com This was a monumental undertaking for Anthony Stanley. The book provides a fast-moving, yet brilliantly detailed history of our great club in the Premier League era.

What is "Success" for Liverpool FC?

Back to the Future As the dust settles on another domestic season we get an opportunity to assess where our great club is at, and the journey we can reasonably expect it to bring us on in the season to come.  As discussed on the LFC Daytrippers pod last week, some fans are happy to just enjoy watching their team play an exciting brand of football.  Any success achieved along the way is treated as a bonus.  The big deal …
Football Fans: Adopting the Persona

Football Fans: Adopting the Persona

I’m a great believer in the theory that some football fans subconsciously adopt the persona of the manager that leads their club of choice.

And, more often than not, He did! A shining …

Another False Dawn for Liverpool FC? Not This Time!

Those tinges of heartbreak from seeing Manchester City winning the league, and not the Reds, were instantaneously replaced by the euphoria of actually being in a title race until the very last day of the season. Universally, nobody would dare say this was a failure of a season in anyway. Not even the judgmental mainstream media. History will ultimately judge Rodgers’ team, built in his image of flair, confidence, guile, steel, and of vulnerability, that it will grow on to …
A Celebration of the Ninety Six

A Celebration of the Ninety Six

Last Monday fans and first team players at a sold out Anfield were treated to a thoroughly entertaining encounter between a team of Local Legends and a team of International Legends. I was lucky enough to be invited into the Press Box for the game and also took over the Anfield Index Twitter account for the game. Walking up to the ground before kick off you could sense a certain buzz around Anfield with everyone in attendance in high spirits …
