Three At The Back Can Still Work for Liverpool

Three At The Back Can Still Work for Liverpool

Against Arsenal last week we attempted to employ the same system we used so successfully against West Brom: 3 central defenders, with two wing-backs. Clearly it didn’t go well, and it led to a very poor first half performance from Liverpool. This prompted Rodgers to revert to four at the back for the second half, which brought about a marginally better (though still wholly underwhelming) performance. Thanks to this one poor game, a lot of reactionary fans have started shouting …

Martin Skrtel | Steady as we go Vs Spurs | Stats

Martin Skrtel has split opinions on Merseyside for years. Ever since his move from Zenit St. Petersburg in January 2008, the Slovak has drifted in and out of the Liverpool back line. He has partnered many players in the Reds' defence; Soto Kyrgiakos, Sebastien Coates, Jamie Carragher, and most recently, Daniel Agger. Skrtel is quietly going about his business at the moment, and is sneaking his name into the hat for Liverpool's player of the season. Kenny Dalglish took the …

AnfieldIndex Exclusive: Liverpool FC Stats from Carling Cup Semi-Final 2nd leg

Liverpool FC have finally made it to the new Wembley Stadium and how sweet it is. The road to Wembley was a tough one with Away wins over Stoke, Chelsea and Manchester City along the way how fitting it that it came down to the 2nd leg at Anfield to decide whether Liverpool made the final. They did exactly that and now have a match against Cardiff to look forward too. Cardiff boy Craig Bellamy is certainly relishing the opportunity …
Do Liverpool need to buy anyone this January?

Do Liverpool need to buy anyone this January?

As we approach the January transfer window Liverpool will be looking to bring in a few new faces to the club and whether those players are stars or up and comers we will find out. As you look at the team closely you are able to find those areas in which we are in need and I will be going through that specifically. To start with we look at our goalkeeper big Pepe,the 3 time golden glove winner, has started …
Liverpool’s Defensive Line – With and Without Carragher

Liverpool’s Defensive Line – With and Without Carragher

There has been an ongoing debate for some time now about the impact Jamie Carragher’s lack of pace has on the Liverpool defensive line. There is a theory that Carragher holds the line deep to prevent younger, quicker attackers stealing a march on him on the break. Carragher’s calf injury has inadvertently helped us find out whether this is true. By looking at the Liverpool defensive line with Carragher (against Norwich) and without him (against West Brom) we can test whether the theory has any basis in reality. …
Are we still dreaming for a team of Carraghers? | Jamie Carragher

Are we still dreaming for a team of Carraghers? | Jamie Carragher

“We all dream of a team of Carraghers” goes the Kop chant, but exactly how long will it be before we have a team-less Carragher? At the age of 33, Carragher’s best years are behind him, yet he remains a stalwart in the centre of defence. While some may say he has lost his pace, I would question how much pace he had in the first place. Instead, the Bootle-born defender possesses a greater understanding of the game that has …

Partners At The Back (Carragher, Agger & Skrtel)

Partners At The Back (Carragher, Agger & Skrtel)

For a number of years now there has been much debate about who exactly makes up our best central defensive partnership. The 3 main players in this debate are the long serving Jamie Carragher, the misunderstood Martin Skrtel and the mostly injured Daniel Agger …
Where the Game was won - Sunderland Vs Liverpool

Where the Game was won - Sunderland Vs Liverpool

The first instalment of this feature was a success so we are going to make it into a regular feature every time Liverpool win in the Premier League. The latest game was yesterday's win at the Stadium of Light against, a struggling, Sunderland. Immediately after the game a lot of supporters, myself included, put the win down to a bit of lady luck that went our way after half an hour of the first half. On second thoughts I'd like to change my mind and put it down to a mixture of lady luck, which every team requires, and some very good performances in the Liverpool team …
Martin Skrtel: Feast or Famine?

Martin Skrtel: Feast or Famine?

A brief introduction: I’m Conor Dowley, and while I’m a Yank through and through, I’m also a huge Liverpool supporter. My best friend grew up just blocks from Anfield, so when I started getting more and more in to the sport and it came time to choose a team to support (five years or so ago), Liverpool was the natural choice. It helped that I loved watching them play; Steven Gerrard was then and is still now one of my favorite individual players to watch …
