Damien Comolli decided to piggyback on the recent success of Jordan Henderson to once again get his name in the headlines. The ex-Director of Football at Liverpool has claimed the club’s owners fired him after telling him that £16million man Jordan Henderson was a waste of money. In quotes taken from a report in the […]

The Transfer Window has been officially open for nearly a month now and Liverpool’s two biggest signings have been players from within the Premier League. Both Sadio Mane and Gini Wijnaldum arrived at Anfield for a combined £55 Million. Most Reds fans must have a strong feeling of deja-vu about such deals. Since Fenway Sports […]

Anfield Index is five years old! It’s that strange age when the adorable toddler you once knew begins to get a little less cute and little more annoying. The 8am tantrums begin when getting ready for school. Incessant questions on absolutely everything in the entire universe. Questions of which you quite clearly have all the […]

“This time we’ll be destroyed for sure. This is madness.” – C3PO. A long time ago, in the annals of English football, there was a club… But this was no ordinary club. 18 League Titles, 5 European Cups and dozens of alternative trophies had launched Liverpool into the status of Global Superpower.

I might be witnessing a graduation on Sunday. I hope to see new boys coming of age in a Red shirt. No, not our much criticised, 6 ft plus, work in progress, AC. His time will come. My own theory is that he needs to come off the bench with 30 minutes to go, in a […]

Maxi, Maxi Rodríguez runs down the wing for me. Well, not this season he doesn’t. The subject of one of the Kop’s favoured songs and the hero of the closing games of the last season, Maxi Rodríguez has played only 13 minutes in the Premier League in 2011/12. It seems hard to fathom for someone […]

Stewart Downing came to Liverpool with many fans feeling that we had settled for second best after United had signed Ashley Young. Some even intimated that, in replacing Downing with N’Zogbia, Villa had improved their first team for a fraction of the price.

This is Part III of my Transfer Window review, and a follow up to my original articles for “What our Team Needs” which I wrote back in April.
