Liverpool Perspective: England vs Uruguay

England will be looking to bounce back against Uruguay after ‘The Three Lions’ slumped to a 2-1 defeat to Italy on Saturday night. England’s second group game will commence at 8PM inside the Arena Corinthians, São Paulo. The last time these two sides met was at Anfield in 2006 whilst the new Wembley Stadium was being constructed - England won that friendly 2-1 but the overall record isn’t great with Uruguay beating England on four occasions, compared to just three …

The Lion, The Hodge and The Wardrobe

Watching this World Cup I’m struck between mixture of sadness and joy. Joy because the football on display has so far been sensational. Sadness, as the famous Tartan army isn’t making me dream that we’ll win the World Cup. Scotland, in my lifetime, will never win the World Cup, of course. But that’s not the point. The scenes of Scotland fans putting bath bombs in the fountains at Trafalgar Square should tell you all you need to know. The kilts, …

"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.

Raheem Sterling - A Wing and a Player

Raheem Sterling - A Wing and a Player

Brendan Rodgers once spoke of his reluctance to give a young player a lucrative contract early in their career. The thinking behind this is that the natural hunger for the game which players possess at this age, can transform into a hunger for their next pay packet or bonus, and have an adverse effect on their performances. Not long after he became Liverpool manager, Rodgers had this to say on the subject:
“I believe a young player will run …

Liverpool FC's Diamond Formation: An Analysis

How very interesting it was to sit down and watch Manchester United in Champions League action against Olympiacos, putting in a much better performance than that of three days previously against Liverpool (you know, the one in which we won 3-0? Remember that? Vaguely?). After their midfielders got bypassed and played through by Liverpool, they unearthed from the midst of nowhere, a ‘diamond’ system for the Olympiacos game which they reaped the rewards from with a much more fluid and …

Sterling silver or another dull show piece?

Sterling silver or another dull show piece?

After bursting onto the Premier League scene last season, a year on Raheem Sterling seems to have slipped under the radar a little bit. He's only made three starting appearances so far in the premier league and has come off the bench six times to accumulate a grand total of 370 minutes played. This is more than slight drop when compared to last season in which he started 11 of the campaigns first 12 games. What has changed and what …
