Observations as Liverpool brush past Newcastle

Brendan Continues Dribble To Media Even As Another Manager Outwits Him

Brendan Continues Dribble To Media Even As Another Manager Outwits Him

‘But the players have fought and given everything that they possibly can. Hopefully in the summer we can add that quality that the group clearly needs and look to take the opportunity next year." These were Brendan Rodgers’ words after the loss to Crystal Palace on the occasion of Gerrard’s last Anfield match. For the umpteenth time he was not questioned on how his team was outrun and outfought by a lower table team. Nothing about how he and his …
Bring Klopp to the Kop to Replace the Failing Rodgers

Bring Klopp to the Kop to Replace the Failing Rodgers

Many moons ago (roughly ten), last season ended in glorious failure, of sorts, for Liverpool Football Club and its fans. That failure (to get a point against Chelsea/to keep a lead against Palace) was however, very much tempered by the fact that nobody had truly expected us to ever have been in the position which would have made such a heart-wrenchingly tragic collapse possible. Yes, we were buoyed, despite not winning the title; kept afloat by the fact we'd come …
Jordan Henderson | A Central Point

Jordan Henderson | A Central Point

[caption id="attachment_3470" align="alignleft" width="150"] Henderson[/caption] Jordan Henderson is something of a conundrum. To the vocal few he is a waste of money, to many more he is a player of great potential. To nobody, save perhaps the Liverpool coaching staff, he is a right winger who should be keeping Dirk Kuyt out of the side. When Liverpool paid £16M to Sunderland for Henderson's services, there was much trumpeting of the stat that only four players had created more chances than …
Liverpool FC vs. Sunderland AFC Preview

Liverpool FC vs. Sunderland AFC Preview

The Liverpool fans will be expecting a good start to the season after such a huge turnaround under Kenny Dalglish last season and the new signings have added a new level of optimism. Andy Carroll is now fully-fit and has enjoyed a successful pre-season, scoring three goals in six games. Opening day victories have been hard to come by for the Reds in previous years, winning only four of the previous 10. Last season started with a dogged 1-1 draw …
LFC vs Steve Bruce Round 20...

LFC vs Steve Bruce Round 20...

This sunday, Liverpool go head to head to head with Steve Bruce (the manager) for the 16th time in the Premier League and the 20th time overall. Over the years it has been notoriously difficult for the reds to take all 3 points away from these games, in fact, it has only ever happened FOUR TIMES. Now I don't know about anyone else, but for me that's just not good enough, especially when he has only ever managed Wigan, Birmingham …
