The What Could Have Been Liverpool XI: Attack

The What Could Have Been Liverpool XI: Attack

There have been several players in Liverpool’s recent past who have enjoyed the best football of their careers at Anfield and inscribed themselves into the club’s history with memorable performances. Steven Gerrard, Jamie Carragher and Fernando Torres — to name but three — either spent all of their careers or, in Gerrard’s case as good as, with the Reds or — with Torres as an example — enjoyed their career-best runs of form in a Liverpool shirt. There have been …

The What Could Have Been Liverpool XI: The Midfield

There have been several players in Liverpool’s recent past who have enjoyed the best football of their careers at Anfield and inscribed themselves into the club’s history with memorable performances. Steven Gerrard, Jamie Carragher and Fernando Torres — to name but three — either spent all of their careers or, in Gerrard’s case as good as, with the Reds or — with Torres as an example — enjoyed their career-best runs of form in a Liverpool shirt. There have been …
Where would Luis Garcia fit into this Liverpool team?

Where would Luis Garcia fit into this Liverpool team?

It’s easy to imagine how Liverpool greats from the Premier League era would fit into this current side. There’s are obvious places for Steven Gerrard, Luis Suarez, Xabi Alonso and Jamie Carragher. You could even shoehorn Philippe Coutinho back into this side, too. Maybe even Fernando Torres at a push.  But very few people would ever think to mention Luis Garcia.  However, I’m of the belief that he’s very much a Jurgen Klopp sort of player and that the German …
Why Alexander-Arnold is Gerrard's heir

Why Alexander-Arnold is Gerrard's heir

Countless players have been dubbed ‘the next Steven Gerrard’ over the years. Aaron Ramsey got the tag early on in his career, Dele Alli was supposed to be the reincarnation of the former Liverpool skipper but it wasn’t to be while there’s a strong belief that Birmingham City youngster Jude Bellingham is the long-term successor to the Whiston-born whirlwind’s crown. The truth is, however, that Gerrard’s heir is already playing for the Reds. Trent Alexander-Arnold might not be the most …
Where would Steven Gerrard fit into this Liverpool team?

Where would Steven Gerrard fit into this Liverpool team?

While it's practically impossible to improve on the kind of perfection that this Liverpool team has embodied over the last two year... it's always fun to fantasise, isn't it? So with that being said, here's a Liverpool legend that might just fit into the greatest LFC side of our generation. Steven Gerrard. And before we get started, I don't think it's unfair to say that Captain Fantastic as he was so often referred to wouldn't fit into any of the …
What if...Liverpool Actually Signed Konoplyanka?

What if...Liverpool Actually Signed Konoplyanka?

Regret’s a funny thing, isn’t it? When any Liverpool fan sees the words “What if?” their thoughts could very easily be drawn back to any of the misfortunes befalling the club since the famed night in Istanbul, over fourteen years ago. That, to any reasonable Red, was the night their team sold their soul to the devil. The last fourteen years has been the payment, staggered in instalments. Of course, they endured Hicks and Gillett; that was perilous and depressing …
What If...Henderson wasn't sent-off against Man City?

What If...Henderson wasn't sent-off against Man City?

In the latest in our 'What If?' series, Jordan Henderson's damaging red card against Manchester City is bemoaned by Henry Jackson. Anyone who reads my work or has to suffer through my endless tweets will know that I am a big admirer of Henderson. A player who has been almost ridiculously maligned by some down the years, he has now forged quite a career at Liverpool, captaining the Reds to Champions League glory. Next May, he will hopefully become Liverpool's …
Oxlade-Chamberlain vs. Palace: To Start or Not to Start?

Oxlade-Chamberlain vs. Palace: To Start or Not to Start?

What did you learn from the international break? Very little, right? The absence of domestic football left a gaping void, forcing us to actually do other things with our lives and perhaps even contemplate watching England play. If there's one thing that the last week or so has taught us, it's that Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain remains a formidable footballer and a gem of a character. The 26-year-old scored and assisted for England, against Montenegro and Kosovo respectively, further suggesting he will …
How would Steven Gerrard fit into Jurgen Klopp's Liverpool team?

How would Steven Gerrard fit into Jurgen Klopp's Liverpool team?

The international break does things to people. Without Liverpool to keep them occupied, the mind can wander. Random debates dominate social media and this time around it centres around Jordan Henderson and Steven Gerrard. Initially, the debate was around whether or not the current Liverpool skipper was a better captain than Gerrard. Opinions were offered and insults were traded but this sparked another conversation on where the former No.8 would play in this current team. The easy answer would be …
Dirk Kuyt says Liverpool's current team is better than that of 2008/09

Dirk Kuyt says Liverpool's current team is better than that of 2008/09

Former Liverpool and Netherlands star, Dirk Kuyt, believes that The Reds' current team is of a higher standard than the squad he was a part of at Anfield in 2008/09. Kuyt, under Rafa Benitez's guidance, played alongside talents such as Xabi Alonso, Steven Gerrard, Fernando Torres and Javier Mascherano that year. Liverpool lost just two league games all season, finishing with 86 points, but it wasn't enough to beat Manchester United to the title. Now, though, Kuyt feels that Jurgen …
