Liverpool V Everton | D-Day is Derby Day

Liverpool V Everton | D-Day is Derby Day

The longest running top-flight derby resumes in the early kick-off on Saturday, with Liverpool hoping that the 216th fixture will see them take the three points on offer. Everton currently stand three points adrift of Liverpool with a game in hand, however it could be argued that they have had the slightly easier fixtures in the opening games of the season. Head to Head: The Story So Far The defensive stats show that Liverpool and Everton are fairly well matched.  …
Liverpool V Spurs | No more 'Arry Carry'!

Liverpool V Spurs | No more 'Arry Carry'!

We all agree that Stoke basically got away with ‘arry carry’ last Saturday, and Liverpool will be hoping that there is no repeat in Sunday’s game at White Hart Lane against 'Arry’s Spurs. Last season Spurs got the better of the Reds in both premier league games, the 2-0 reverse at Anfield putting pay to Liverpool’s lingering hopes of European qualification (not to many people’s disappointment I may add!).  All Reds fans will be hoping that we can recover from …

Stoke V Liverpool | Comparison Vs 10/11

This will perhaps be one of my shortest posts, as it is clear that the stats from the game against Stoke have been widely reported.  If you wish to see a comparison of Liverpool's key stats compared to Stoke I would suggest you have a look at ICG90's Stoke V Liverpool article on the site. Unfortunately it was the Liverpool fans reaching for the Rennies to deal with the acid indigestion at the end of the game on Saturday (if …
Liverpool V Stoke | The acid test?

Liverpool V Stoke | The acid test?

The term 'acid test' originates from the Californian Gold Rush in the second half of the 19th century.  Dealers needed to be able to distinguish gold from base metal, and therefore subjected their finds to the 'acid test' as gold does not react to most acids. Many LFC fans are convinced that Kenny Dalglish has struck gold this year with some excellent signings during the transfer window (and earlier of course).  Yes there was a sluggish start against Sunderland, but …
Liverpool V Bolton | Match Review

Liverpool V Bolton | Match Review

Liverpool maintained their excellent record against Bolton on Saturday, making it 10 wins from the last 11 fixtures.  Thankfully the Reds were intent on making sure that there was no repeat of the Sunderland draw. In my preview of the game; I highlighted three areas which I believed were crucial if Liverpool were to take the three points on offer. To Compete My main focus here was on Kevin Davies; I believed that if Liverpool could compete with the physical …
Liverpool V Bolton | Preview

Liverpool V Bolton | Preview

Liverpool take on Bolton, in the late kick-off, on Saturday with Reds fans hoping for another three points.  In previous years Liverpool have struggled against so called 'lesser opposition' at home, most memorably in the 2008-09 season, where it could be argued that the seven draws at home cost Liverpool their first league title in 19 years (see below). Those draws came against Stoke (0-0), Fulham (0-0), West Ham (0-0), Hull City (2-2), Everton (1-1), Man City (1-1) and Arsenal …

Liverpool v Arsenal: Analytical Preview

Liverpool take on Arsenal in the early kick-off next Saturday, with all Liverpool fans hoping that The Reds can improve on the last display against Sunderland.  Prior to the game I thought it would be interesting to attempt to assess some areas of Arsenal's attacking style/strategy and some areas that Liverpool should look to exploit.

Liverpool A&E

Liverpool A&E

Not Accident and Emergency...Adam and Enrique! It was certainly a tale of two halves for Liverpool against Sunderland on Saturday, however in this blog I thought it would be interesting to look at two of the new signings who we hope will add some quality to Liverpool's previously problematic left side. Charlie Adam In my view Charlie Adam will prove to be a good signing by Dalglish; although I do have concerns about his lack of pace, which I believe …
