Semi-Final Win Points to More Pressing Issues for Klopp

Semi-Final Win Points to More Pressing Issues for Klopp

Liverpool players, former stars and fans worldwide were ecstatic following the Reds’ progression to the League Cup Final last night. It’s a chance of silverware for Klopp’s men, something that has long been missing at Anfield. Jurgen Klopp, though, will be far from happy with last night’s showing. It was one of the worst Liverpool performances I have seen in a long time, with the Reds registering just two shots on target during the entire game. In the semi-final of …
Liverpool FC's Daytrippers and Anfield's Atmosphere

Liverpool FC's Daytrippers and Anfield's Atmosphere

They say that the atmosphere is a thing of the past these days at Anfield. That the famous twelfth man is no more. That fans in the terraces can no longer be bothered to sing or cheer the team on when their backs are against the wall. That Anfield is a silent stadium and at times the only noise you hear is coming from the away end especially on European nights or when one of the so called minnows of …
Brendan Rodgers: Presenting the Facts

Brendan Rodgers: Presenting the Facts

For the dwindling number of Liverpool supporters who still had faith in Brendan Rodgers or were still willing to give him another chance this season, it seems the timid defeat away to Manchester United was the straw that broke the camel’s back. His backing amongst the fan base is now in Roy Hodgson territory. There was a lot of anger from fans following the defeat, and manner of it, at Old Trafford. Myself, I’m finding it hard to get angry …
Derby Disaster: What Next for Rodgers and Liverpool?

Derby Disaster: What Next for Rodgers and Liverpool?

After watching the game on Saturday, many are wondering what next? Where does Liverpool go from there and specifically, where does Brendan Rodgers do now? Many a Rodgers fan has seen their faith rocked by Liverpool's recent performances. Twitter erupted with anger and disappointed. Hordes have heaped themselves on the 'Rodgers Out' campaign after such a dismal display against, let's face it, a ridiculously average Manchester United side. A better team would have hit Liverpool for four or five. It's …
The More Things Change, the More they Stay the Same for Liverpool FC

The More Things Change, the More they Stay the Same for Liverpool FC

Seven points from three games represented an excellent start to the new season for Liverpool Football Club and, its embattled manager, Brendan Rodgers. A battling if blunt display against Stoke, followed by an unconvincing showing against Bournemouth had delivered 6 points from 6, before the Reds turned in an impressive display away at the Emirates. Things were looking decent-ish, at least in terms of results, and the performances seemed to be improving. Step forward West Ham at Anfield! Saturday's absolute …
Post Match Stoke 0 Liverpool 1 - What did we learn?

Post Match Stoke 0 Liverpool 1 - What did we learn?

A Philippe Coutinho stunner gives Liverpool the win. No, this is not February 2015, but it felt like deja-vu in the win against Stoke in Reds season opener. Many fans had hoped to see a fluid Liverpool side, hungry for revenge against the side that embarrassed them on the last day of the season but that was not a realistic expectation. Stoke is always a difficult away day and the opening game of the season is always a little conservative …
It's time to get dirty - Liverpool need some bite!

It's time to get dirty - Liverpool need some bite!

Cast your mind back to the last time Liverpool played at Stoke. Yes, that game. 'The 6-1', as it's become known. The humbling at the Britannia provided no finer example of the need for a streak of nastiness under Brendan Rodgers. A team being humiliated in this fashion by supposedly inferior opposition should have been frustrated. They should have been angry. Beyond angry. But as Stoke plundered goals one, two, three, four and five past a hapless Liverpool defence in …

Heroes Of The Past - Bruce Grobbelaar

Character. A word that the majority of Liverpool fans are sick of right now. Probably because a certain someone has singlehandedly managed to suck all the joy out of it. However, the definition of the word that I am referring to is "the quality of being individual in an interesting or unusual way". When I come across the word character, I think of flamboyance, eccentricity and spontaneity. I think of people who stand out among the crowd and who aren't …
Despite the signings | Are Liverpool in disarray?

Despite the signings | Are Liverpool in disarray?

Disarray: a state of disorganisation or untidiness. An apt word to describe the current state of affairs at Liverpool Football Club at this moment. A disastrous season has thrown the club into a state of limbo and no one can quite predict what the owners next move will be. Obviously, we are not privy to inside information but as an outsider looking in, the uncertainty and the silence raise a myriad of questions where we desperately crave answers. Despite agreeing …
Brendan Rodgers' xFactor Moment

Brendan Rodgers' xFactor Moment

"You can tell he wants the job though" Oh really? You're telling me Brendan Rodgers wants one of the biggest jobs in world football? Shit, well if he wants it I guess he should be the manager, yeah... That was one of the reasons fans used when the news broke that Brendan Rodgers had survived the end of season review. How in-depth this review was we'll never know but that's for another day. Brendan Rodgers' Liverpool was going to be …
