Alan Pardew, another manager who divides opinion, brings his Crystal Palace side to Anfield on the back of a good start to the season, albeit more inconsistent in recent weeks. The Eagles have won two, drawn one, and lost three of their previous six, although they were unlucky not to beat Manchester United last weekend. […]

Liverpool’s Europa League draw wasn’t the toughest all things considered. Barring the trip to Russia there shouldn’t really be anything there to concern us. There’s no reason The Reds shouldn’t top that group but It’d be foolish to take these matches for granted. Many fans don’t watch Ligue 1 and I myself only watched Bordeaux […]

Even after spending over £110m on player recruitment last summer it looked as though Brendan Rodgers was never sure of what his best XI was. More often than not he seemed desperate to justify the validity of those acquisitions that was displayed by his decision to stick with Dejan Lovren even though it was apparent […]

It was a far from perfect season to say the least. Some could argue that it was a combination of poor signings, tactical naivety and injuries that were the downfall of Liverpool Football Club. All of which are valid arguments. However, I can’t help but wonder how you can go from finishing 2nd to 6th in the […]

There was singing, there was cheering, and Adrian Chiles was made to look a bit of a spoon on live television; you’d be forgiven for thinking the Liverpool fans partying in the Spanish capital had just watched their side complete a memorable win over the European champions in their own back yard.

Last week, on the ‘Jumpers for Goalposts’ pod in one of our more serious moments, we took a look at the travails of the Liverpool defence…notice please, I specifically say ‘defence’, not ‘back four’, ‘central pairing’ or other, more targeted breakdown. There is a reason for this, and one that surprisingly perhaps, when having so […]

Fabio Aurelio, Sami Hyypia, Jamie Carragher and Alvaro Arbeloa. Now that was a solid back four. You felt confident going into games under Benitez with those four at the back. Well organised by Carragher, and Hyypia read the game magnificently. Time to stop drooling folks and wipe that smile of your face as that was […]

With the tournament one round of fixtures in let’s look at which players from Liverpool will be playing over the next few days. Mamadou Sakho – France vs Switzerland 20th June 8.00 PM Kick Off Luis Suarez aside, Mamadou Sakho is […]

‘A game we’ve already won on paper’ This is a platitude that will be on the lips of many Liverpool supporters if next weekend’s trip to Hull comes up in conversation around the water cooler.
