January Transfer Window: Don’t be obsessed with signing new players We’re well into the transfer window. It’s something, like dry January, that I have no truck with. Yet still the question comes from almost every Red I meet: who are we going to sign? The simple answer is I have no idea, nor will I […]

Well, 2023 has been a strange one. To turn around Sven-Goran Eriksson’s cliche: first half not so good, second half good. At times last season it looked as if the Jurgen Klopp era was coming towards an end. Anfield was an unhappy place. It never quite reached the stage where the internal grumbling became a […]

Klopp’s Perfect Fit There are so many people who say “Jurgen gets us.” Funnily enough, many of those characters also said “Brendan gets us.” But, for the most part, Klopp has synced with Liverpool in a manner that has been beyond the expectations of most supporters. In terms of politics, social attitudes and passion, he […]

Increased Capacity for Red Devil’s Visit What a day Sunday will be. The opening of the upper Anfield Road will bring the capacity up to 57,000. Those 7,000 extra voices will welcome Manchester United with the respect the visitors deserve. There’s often debate about which team are Liverpool’s biggest rivals. For me, it will always […]

Tony Evans’ Weekly Anfield Index Column Ah, the Anfield atmosphere. There’s always someone complaining about it.  Locals don’t sing. Daytrippers don’t know the songs. Everyone’s always pointing the finger at each other.  In the aftermath of the Brentford game, I stumbled upon the usual sort of argument on social media. I should stop looking. The […]

Football’s Televisual Shift It hurts those of us of a certain age, but we have to accept that football is now a primarily televisual game. The fans in the stadium become less important by the year. Except… the struggle for owners and marketeers is that atmosphere matters. People want to watch Liverpool across the world […]

Quiet Times at Anfield: Stability Reigns This is one of those few, brief times in the life of a Liverpool fan when things seem too quiet. Everything is pretty stable, the team seems to be going in the right direction and the roller coaster has hit a flat stretch of track. Since the return from […]

The Emotional Rollercoaster of Derbies Mark Lawrenson summed up derbies. “They’re horrible,” he said. “The worst thing is the fear of getting beat.
