Liverpool Atmosphere: The Force Awakens

Liverpool Atmosphere: The Force Awakens

Many years ago, In a galaxy far, far away there was a prophecy spoken about a normal one. The prophecy of the normal one was that foretold the coming of a being who would bring balance to the Liverpool fans. Jurgen was the normal one. Anfield was at it's lowest ebb for many years and the force it once was now nothing more than a myth. He was the one to teach both the players and the fans to believe again. The …

Attack of the Clones - Sturridge: The False Prophecy

"Who did this to you!? Who was it Owen?" Obi-Wan was desperate to know who was responsible for this heinous crime. His old friend, Owen Coyle, never hurt anyone, who on earth would want to kill him? "I-I don’t know. I only saw a pink light" replied Coyle, barely able to get the words out. He was coughing, his mouth was full of blood. "Pink light? Was it a Sith Lord!?” "I d-don’t know... I was attacked from behind." "Ok, …
One-Paced Liverpool's Need for Speed

One-Paced Liverpool's Need for Speed

When great attacking sides are mentioned, one quality above all springs to mind - pace. Barcelona’s front three of Lionel Messi, Neymar and Luis Suarez are synonymous with bursting runs past labouring defenders, while Alexis Sanchez and Eden Hazard lit up the Premier League last season as they left hapless opponents in their wake.

Clean Sheets Don't Hide The Dirt in Defence for Liverpool

"Just because everything is different doesn't mean anything has changed" - Irene Peter.

The main difference from this season to last is that the attack isn't rescuing the defence, …
Stock-Taking: Liverpool's Welcome Break

Stock-Taking: Liverpool's Welcome Break

Seven games into the season and we've arrived at the second international break already. Ordinarily, I have no time for these most unwelcome of interuptions to weekend life. Like most Reds, and fans of other clubs I'm sure, the highlight of my weekend is watching club football. It's what we look forward to, what we think, talk and in some cases write about all week, and the difference between a win or a loss has the power, should one allow …
Jon Flanagan: Do his performances warrant an extended run in 1st team?

Jon Flanagan: Do his performances warrant an extended run in 1st team?

Jon Flanagan has been a regular in the Liverpool side ever since starting at right wing-back in the Premier League game against Arsenal in early November. Since then, Flanagan has been swapped over to the left due to Jose Enrique being ruled out after picking up an injury. The Liverpool-born full back has been putting in some solid performances ever since and has really impressed most supporters. Critics may have their own opinions on Flanagan but I for one am …
