Walking On Through The Storm

Walking On Through The Storm

It’s a stressful thing supporting modern Liverpool. Far more than just following a football team, having a pint, and hoping they will win the match when they take the field, which, after all, is what it really should be about. We fret about everything now. Fellow Reds willingly offer counsel on this matter on social media. I liked one I read on Saturday evening from Gareth Roberts after Villa: “We won lads, go eat a cake or kiss your girlfriend.” …
Restoring Liverpool's Identity

Restoring Liverpool's Identity

Make Us Dream Again “Why do you care so much? It’s just a game. You can’t let it affect your life like that.” They’ll never understand. We’re a tricky bunch, us. Frivolous and fickle, temperamental and volatile. We want success, as all humans do; we invest hours and hours of our lives into it, in fact, but show someone on the outside the investment and they’ll deem it totally void; incessantly pointless. It’s just a game after all, they players …
Where has Liverpool's fight gone?

Where has Liverpool's fight gone?

May, 2005, 49 minutes past 11 was the first time in my life I cried at a game of football on television. Being 7 years old, it was the first time I was of conscious mind when my beloved Liverpool got their hands on some silverware, and better yet, the 5th European Cup. Doesn’t get much better for your first time! More to my point, I also remember how cold I was in my grandmother’s sitting room, sipping on a …
A Solid Spine Would Do Liverpool Just Fine!

A Solid Spine Would Do Liverpool Just Fine!

I’ve watched a lot of football over the best part of nearly 20 years and I’ve seen some great sides, some played beautiful expansive football, whilst others adopted a more defensive approach where they’d be ruthless on the counter attack. I’ve witnessed so many great managers and tacticians orchestrate various formations such as 4-5-1, 4-4-2 and 4-3-3. But rest assured their teams had one thing in common, and that was a solid spine. A trend in football, which has always …

Ian Rush Liverpool …

Not your money though is it? Liverpool Supporters & Transfers

Tony 'Bad news' Barrett shattered the tranquillity that the Roberto Firmino signing had brought to Liverpool FC twitter by announcing on Thursday that Liverpool were still very much in for Christian Benteke and they were hoping to get the transfer fee for the Belgian down to the £25million mark. Cue the floods of Christian Benteke highlight montages appearing on twitter as many proclaimed he isn't just a big man but can use his feet well too. Don't mean to burst the …
Just Get Raheem Sterling Tied Down!

Just Get Raheem Sterling Tied Down!

The word 'Legend' is banded around a lot in football. The Steven Gerrard all-star game was billed to be past Liverpool 'legends' playing in one game. The truth is though they aren't legends, not club legends anyway. This attitude breeds mediocrity. The fans of Liverpool Football Club shouldn't be using International success as a way to back up their claims that they've got and had legends playing for them. With the exception of Steven Gerrard, and perhaps Jamie Carragher, the …
The Joyful Return of the Prodigal Son: Fernando Torres

The Joyful Return of the Prodigal Son: Fernando Torres

When the news came out that an All Star Charity game was to be played at Anfield in aid of multiple Liverpool based foundations, I was overjoyed that there would be legends of the game gracing Anfield. As the names of the footballers began trickling in, the interest grew. Amongst the many names was the one whom I had hoped would be in the invite list. The blonde striker, the one who gave many unforgettable moments for a lifetime and …
God is a Red - Robbie Fowler | Strikers Week on AnfieldIndex!

God is a Red - Robbie Fowler | Strikers Week on AnfieldIndex!

"It doesn't matter what you do, we've got God on our side", a fairly common retort from a Liverpool fan in the mid to late nineties. No matter who you were bantering with, which one of your mates' sides LFC were facing that week - United, Arsenal, Spurs, Newcastle, even Sheffield Wednesday at the time - it wasn't important, because we had God, and He was gonna win it for us. And, more often than not, He did! A shining …
Once Upon A Time…There Was a Boy Named Torres

Once Upon A Time…There Was a Boy Named Torres

Think of Fernando Torres, and you think of the story of the past few years. The poor performances, the missed opportunities, failing to be the main man - the ghost of the old Fernando Torres, if you will. As much as his work for us deserves to be remembered, it's hard to look past what happened on his way out of Anfield. But isn't that always the way with strikers? Especially at Liverpool; they arrive unknown, transform into a superstar …
