In this second instalment of our Souness Years series, we delve deeper into the behind-the-scenes activities during the turbulent Souness era of the early 90s. Part 1 – The Souness Years: In Their Own Words – The Change of Guard was released earlier this week. GRAEME SOUNESS: McMahon and Beardsley came into my office and […]

The rise and fall of Liverpool football club is one of the most unique in the footballing world. Built ‘up and up and up’, in both Bill Shankly’s words, actions and design, Liverpool dominated British and European football for the best part of two decades. In the eighteen years marking 1973 to 1991, Liverpool finished […]

If, like me, you are somewhat fatigued by the daily transfer window saga being played out across all platforms of media and need to take a step back from it all, here’s something I hope will help. To escape the whole shenanigans and rollercoaster of arguments, discussions and debate as to whether or not Liverpool […]

Alan Kennedy The left-back scored two European Cup winning goals – need I say more? It was obvious this shortlist would contain a left-back and given there’s been very few who have made the position their own in the Premier League era, it’s no surprise I went for a solid performer of the past.

Over the years the kop have witnessed some incredible front men so in light of Benteke’s opening strike, we’ve […]

“It doesn’t matter what you do, we’ve got God on our side”, a fairly common retort from a Liverpool fan in the mid to late nineties.
