Liverpool now capable of winning dirty

The Champions League final between Liverpool and Spurs was probably as bad a deciding game as the competition has seen for years. In terms of a neutral, it was a bland showing between two sides that had an array of attacking talent on show. Some pundits have put this down to the fact that both sides had a three-week break from their last league game, blaming rustiness as the reason for the lack of quality. However Jurgen Klopp will not …

Why Madrid Must Be Liverpool's Crowning Moment

Why Madrid Must Be Liverpool's Crowning Moment

This Liverpool team has to be remembered. This has been the main thought going round my head in recent weeks, during what has been one of the most emotionally draining seasons in memory. For anyone under the age of 40, I doubt I'm alone in saying a Reds side hasn't felt this special before - none have left you feeling so connected and in love with it. There have been some top class teams since the glory days, but this …
A Lesson In Defending From Virgil van Dijk

A Lesson In Defending From Virgil van Dijk

Liverpool’s 2013/14 title challenge was defined by moments. The  moment Jordan Henderson saw red against Manchester City. The  moment Steven Gerrard lost his footing and Demba Ba emerged through on goal. The  moment Iago Aspas produced an abhorrent corner to set up a Chelsea counter. All painful, pivotal nails in the coffin for Brendan Rodger’s side. Sunday’s 2-1 win against Tottenham carried similar weight. Manchester City will know their destiny remains in their own hands, with maximum points from their …

Jordan Henderson - The Best Is Yet To Come

Jordan Henderson - The Best Is Yet To Come

There's a saying that springs to mind when I think of Liverpool captain Jordan Henderson - that is fool me once, shame on you, fool me twice, shame on me. For a lot of fans my use of this analogy when I talk about Henderson may be a small bit confusing. Well let me explain. When Henderson came to Liverpool in the summer of 2011, I like many other Liverpool fans were of the opinion, that Henderson simply wasn't good enough to …
