Jordan Henderson - Struggling under the weight of expectation

Jordan Henderson - Struggling under the weight of expectation

As Jürgen Klopp makes the final necessary changes to shape and mould his Liverpool squad, ahead of the up and coming season; speculation still remains over the long term future and captaincy of Jordan Henderson amongst supporters. It's a crucial season for everyone connected with the club, but especially Jordan, coming off the back of a frustrating, injury stricken campaign. He'll be hoping to find some form and consistency, whilst establishing and holding onto a place in Jürgen's starting 11. …
The Beautiful Game - The Lookers of Liverpool FC

The Beautiful Game - The Lookers of Liverpool FC

After Liverpool announced the signing of Loris Karius my wife, who has a fleeting interest in football at best, asked if he was a footballer or model which left me thinking what would be the club's best looking team? From the ‘90s Spice Boys to the face cream team in the Nivea adverts here’s a look back at past and present Liverpool players who arguably make the best looking team of all time. The Manager: Jurgen Klopp There’s only one candidate …
The League Cup Final - After the Dust has Settled

The League Cup Final - After the Dust has Settled

There’s little more painful in sport than the Cup Final defeat. As Liverpool fans we’ve seen both sides of the coin. Jubilation and despair. Unfortunately, on Sunday at Wembley, it was despair. Penalties, we don’t lose them do we? And after Fernandinho hit the post with his first I foolishly thought we had our name on the cup. Sadly it wasn’t to be and we’re now left to dissect the day and ask where it went wrong, what positives we …
Punched by a Liverpool Fan and Other Great Memories

Punched by a Liverpool Fan and Other Great Memories

As football fans I consider us to be a blessed bunch. Blessed to experience an emotional onslaught for ninety minutes that will elevate us to ridiculous highs one second then punch us in the stomach the next. Sometimes magical, sometimes shit, but always life affirming, always passionate. Blessed to be able to converse like old friends with complete strangers based upon a shared allegiance. Bonded by the Liverbird and eleven lads decked out in red come Saturday. A global family …
Liverpool Set for Midfield Revolution

Liverpool Set for Midfield Revolution

The sixteenth week of Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool inspired a good deal of irrational, kiss-the-closest-living-thing, stay-up-all-night-making-a-shrine-to-Joe-Allen joy. When our future selves recall the vicissitudes of the 2015/16 season, few memories will endure as brightly as the hysterical game of see-saw that was Carrow Road or Allen’s brief, fist-clenching fall from modesty as he wheeled away from a forlorn Jack Butland. For a little, wonderful while, the fact that two relatively weak opponents had almost inflicted consecutive defeats on the Reds was …
Is Roberto Firmino finally showing he's the Suarez Replacement?

Is Roberto Firmino finally showing he's the Suarez Replacement?

Replacing Luis Suarez was an almost impossible task. The sort that nobody wants to take on because you knew it was going to be thankless. The Uruguayan sensation lit up Anfield during his time with The Reds. The goals, the controversy, the desire to win and the spectacular moments that will live long in the memory. The Suarez shadow has been lingering over the club ever since he left. Was anybody going to step out of it? Daniel Sturridge was …
Liverpool's Midfield - The Heart of the Team, in Need of a Defibrillator!

Liverpool's Midfield - The Heart of the Team, in Need of a Defibrillator!

Editor's note: This article was written prior to Liverpool's win against Manchester City at Etihad on Saturday I've always believed that the competitive games are won and lost, by the battle in midfield. It's the area of a team so influential to the style, tempo, control and competitiveness of a team. A good midfield will win you games no doubt, but a truly great one wins titles and tournaments. Attacking players will always command the highest transfer fees in world …
Liverpool's Problems Extend Far Beyond Brendan Rodgers

Liverpool's Problems Extend Far Beyond Brendan Rodgers

The pressure on Brendan Rodgers couldn’t be greater, and the cracks are beginning to show, just as they did for Liverpool managers of the past. The end of days for recent Liverpool managers has been signalled with a loss of their public dignity, and Rodgers is no different to the rest in this regard. Liverpool’s performances on the pitch have perhaps reflected the increasing unease seeping into the Northern Irishman’s public persona. However, it is vitally important that as fans, we …
Heroes of our Past: Xabi Alonso

Heroes of our Past: Xabi Alonso

In the summer of 2004, there was a renaissance underway at Anfield.  Liverpool replaced Gerard Houllier with a new man on the touchline in former Valencia manager, Rafa Benitez. Freshly off his second La Liga title in only three seasons at the Mestalla, the Spaniard was set to bring a winning mentality and tenacity to Liverpool.  In order to do this, Rafa would dip into a market he was most comfortable with by bringing in four Spanish players to help …
Heroes of the Past: Fernando Torres

Heroes of the Past: Fernando Torres

This is not my first article on Fernando Torres on this site. I had written one when he played at Anfield during the Steven Gerrard testimonial some time back. You can read that piece here. As you can see, I am a huge fan of Torres; a Torres fanatic would sound a bit more apt though. In fact I would put my head on the line and say Torres is my favorite Liverpool player I have ever seen playing live during …
