  • Brentford 1 Liverpool 4 (Feb 18 2024)

    Massive win, potential banana skin avoided and we extended our lead over City by two points. That’s the good news. The bad news is we may have lost two key players for the foreseeable future, but we have to cross our fingers and hope for the best on that.   This was a great win and while maybe the scoreline flattered us a little, it was a comfortable, deserved win in a fixture that has given us problems in recent years. I think we were assisted by how shit they were at the back but I a

  • Klopp: Alonso is the stand-out in the next generation of managers

    Jurgen Klopp is highly impressed by the work of Xabi Alonso and  in time believes that he will be the leader of the next generation of elite managers.   The former Liverpool midfield star has guided Bayer Leverkusen to the top of the Bundesliga where they currently sit five points clear of reigning champions Bayern Munich.   The fact that they have done it in such an impressive fashion has certainly caught the eye of many observers, currently unbeaten through 21 games in the

    Mac Allister: I really enjoy the role I am playing for the team

    Alexis Mac Allister says he has grown into the holding midfield role as the season has progressed and is more than happy that it is playing a part in the success of the team.   The Argentinian moved to Liverpool from Brighton where he was one of the creative architects of their top six finish in the league and reaching the semi-final of the FA Cup.   With Liverpool’s midfield in desperate need of regeneration and some attacking impetus, it was thought the 25 year-old would pl

    Klopp: Squad will remain intact after my departure

    Jurgen Klopp has gone out of his way to calm any fears that his exit from Liverpool will lead to a player exodus.   The shock news that the German will end his tenure come the end of this season naturally saw its fair share of headlines, but along with that came some tenuous links that senior players may also be considering their future.   None more so than captain Virgil Van Dijk who in the the aftermath of the announcement discussed how different the club landscape will loo

They should celebrate, of course they should. We’d have celebrated too.

    It wasn’t exactly the bounce back from the Arsenal game I hoped for, but a win is a win and in the end I was just relieved we got it. For a while there this wasn’t going very well and there was the potential for us to drop points, which given the opposition would have been unthinkable. You have to beat Burnley at home.

    Well that was shit. What a time to throw in a performance like that. Losing at the Emirates isn’t the end of the world as it’s one of the two or three most difficult fixtures on the calendar, so the loss in itself isn’t cause to be too despondent. It’s pretty hard to feel anything but demoralised though after seeing the performance. It was bad, bordering on terrible in fact.   The first half - as usual away from home - was shocking. Dreadful, clueless, sloppy, disorganised shite. The s

    Another one to add to the “was that our best performance of the season?” discussion. I’ve heard a lot of people say it is, I’m not sure though. Was it better than the Newcastle game? In fact, are Chelsea better than Newcastle? Probably not, beating Chelsea now isn’t the accomplishment it once was, that’s for sure.   There’s a reason they’re 10th and we’re top. We’re miles better than them and it showed. We were at this one right from the start. You could tell after a couple of minutes

    One of the worst weekends in a long time for us. We don’t lose many, only two this season, but when we lose to Arsenal and then basically everyone who we don’t to win, wins, that just makes it much worse.   There isn’t one result that even gave me the tiniest little bit of consolation, it’s just proper shit. Chelsea got beat but they're so irrelevant now I genuinely don't care. They're 11th, the deadbeats.   I suppose the only result that went the way I wanted it to was at Go

    A full round of fixtures in midweek, starting on Tuesday as Everton drew 0-0 at Fulham. Sounds like it was shit but I watched most of it on a stream and it was a good game with fuckloads of chances at both ends. No-one could score though.   Pickford made some top saves and Beto missed two great chances right at the end. It’s wild to think that a club in desperate financial trouble that had been told not to spend any money, went out and spunked the best part of £40m on Beto and some ki

I read his comments and thought it was more or less what you’d expect from a player in his mid 30s with only 18 months on his contract and not knowing who the manager was going to be next season.   It was interpreted as him saying “I might leave if FSG don’t get the appointment right” but I took it as him saying he doesn’t know wh

    You started out with the Blues. Was it always going to be Everton or did you have any trials with Liverpool when you were a kid?     It was always going to be Everton, I didn’t get an option. When I was 10 or 11 I was scouted by them and that was the first thing I did, join Everton. All my family were Evertonians - lots of them still are - so it was a natural thing to do and I was very fortunate. Things change quickly in life though.    We’ll get to why you left in a second, but I wanted t

    When you think of guile and grace as a midfielder, one name that personally comes to mind is Xabi Alonso. To this day, Xabi remains in my top three all-time favourite Liverpool players for many of the qualities that will be discussed in this piece.Signed for a absolute snip at £10.7 million from Real Sociedad at the start of Rafa Benitez's tenure in the summer of 2004, the Spaniard's arrival in England was at the peak of a pre-eminent era for central midfielders in the Premier League. He joined

    "El Niño strikes - Fernando Torres’ first goal" by Jason Harris

    When an eagle-eyed photographer spied the words 'You’ll Never Walk Alone' on an armband worn by Fernando Torres in an Atletico Madrid game, it appeared destiny that the Spaniard would one day play for the Reds.   Liverpool fans were crying out for an iconic figure to lead the line and help take the team to the next level. Their dreams became a reality when Rafa Benitez signed the 23-year-old from his boyhood club for £27 million, which at the time was a club record fee. While Torres wa

    "One day we will beat Manchester United, I promise you that." Those were the immortal words from Gerard Houllier after a gut-wrenching 2-1 defeat to the Red Devils at Old Trafford in January of 1999.    Houllier was never a manager chasing headlines with the way he spoke, but the Frenchman saw something in the team he had taken sole ownership over just a few months before after initially sharing the role with Roy Evans.   It had been close to ten years of misery when playing

    Kop Tales In Their Own Words: Steve McMahon - Switching Sides

    Swapping Everton for Liverpool is always a contentious move likely to upset fans of the Blues, but when you’re a local lad, boyhood fan and a player who became club captain it’s going to sting a lot more.    Steve McMahon could have joined Liverpool immediately after walking away from Goodison Park. He was out of contract and there would have been nothing Everton could have done to stop it, but out of respect for his boyhood club McMahon instead chose to make a two year stop at Aston V
