Possessing the ability to score a wide variety of goals, tenacious, direct, a good dribbler, able to play in a number of attacking positions …. A fighter. Now you could be forgiven for thinking that I was talking about a certain Uruguayan superstar whose absence from our football club continues to bring a tear to […]

First of all, excuse the awfully punned title. Although the title is admittedly a poor play on the word ‘hinder’ and Liverpool’s vice-captain Jordan Henderson, it does hold merit. Whilst there are a multitude of tactical and structural problems with Liverpool’s team at the moment, the utilisation of Henderson is one that has fallen under […]

Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers reached new heights during his second season at the club, seeing his team finish 2nd in the league, just 2 points behind eventual winners Manchester City. After several seasons of disappointment, the Liverpool team looked rejuvenated under Rodgers, striking 101 goals over the course of the campaign and doing so in […]

Liverpool fans finally enjoyed a weekend of football after Glen Johnson’s late winner against Stoke at Anfield. It was a much needed three points and relieved some of the pressure mounting on Brendan Rodgers. Rodgers has faced criticism from all directions including many fans who have questioned his tactics and team selections. Over the past […]

August the 17th, 2013. A Simon Mignolet last-minute penalty save resulted into Liverpool ending up with a 1-0 win at home to Stoke, and thus kicking off the new league campaign in style.

Dear To Santa, It’s that time of year again. I don’t want a 54 convertible in light blue or any colour. I realise last season you tried your best, but obviously sorting Eartha Kitt and her ridiculous Christmas list out took it out of you. So my list is even smaller this year. It shouldn’t […]

Okay, maybe 99 is a bit of an over-exaggeration but Brendan is in a bit of a pickle, one which, if we’re honest, is of his own making. He has just embarked on a spending spree that the likes of Jose Mourinho or Manuel Pellegrini would be proud of. You can say that we recouped […]

Recently, Steven Gerrard admitted he believed Liverpool’s Daniel Sturridge was the best striker available to Roy Hodgson, eclipsing Manchester United’s Wayne Rooney. Although there is debate in this, there is little when suggesting he is Liverpool’s main man. Following Luis Suarez’s unfortunate departure, the Reds have struggled so far this season to score goals. Whilst […]

In mineralogy, diamond is a metastable allotrope of carbon, where the carbon atoms are arranged in a variation of the face centred cubic crystal structure called the diamond lattice. Now in simpler terms, a diamond would be a pretty damn good formation for LFC in this moment in time. Whereas the 4231 on the other […]

In Part I, I looked at the individual members of the back ‘5’ (including the GK), and the most likely rotational or still to return individuals, each with their own pluses and minuses. In Part II, I want to look at the midfield options and striker responsibilities relative to defence, the overall strategy and tactics […]
