Outrage, Fume and Cheating

Outrage, Fume and Cheating

Just picture the scene: a footballer knowingly gets the last touch on the ball before it goes out of play, yet still passionately claims a corner. Then imagine it prompts social media to descend into meltdown and those bastions of level-headed insight, radio phone-in shows, turn the airwaves blue as the fume of fans and pundits alike cannot be contained at such blatant dishonesty. That may sound ridiculous at first, but think about it, when it comes to footballers being …
Benteke & Collymore - Similarities at Liverpool

Benteke & Collymore - Similarities at Liverpool

Paul Tompkins on his Tompkins Times, Liverpool devoted website does a very interesting analytical thing. He re-bases transfer cost to factor in inflation, so you can hypothetically ask "how much is the £8.5m LFC paid for Stan Collymore in 1995, equivalent to in today's prices?" The answer the database churns out is the £8.5m is equivalent to £38m in today's money. Collymore and Benteke at £32.5m effectively cost very similar fees.

Aston Villa vs Liverpool Preview | Team News, Key Men & Stats

Aston Villa take on Liverpool in the Premier League this weekend.

Villa have actually enjoyed a slight upturn in form recently, despite being rooted to the bottom of …
Wembley Bound Liverpool Struggle Against Stoke

Wembley Bound Liverpool Struggle Against Stoke

You would have thought I'd have known better at my age when I thought Liverpool would sail through the second leg of the Capital One Cup Semi-Final at home against Stoke City no bother. I think there would have been a better chance of me winning tonight's Euro millions lottery than that happening. Liverpool started the brighter of the two teams but for me manager Jürgen Klopp made a mistake in his selection, he should have played Joe Allen instead …

Liverpool FC |The positives need to be retained, the negatives need to be eradicated

Liverpool's entertaining draw against Arsenal gave the Liverpool fans a lot of positives and hope for the games to come. Despite being bogged down by numerous injuries, the reds still eked out one of their performances of the season. They dominated possession, kept driving at the Arsenal defence and didn't let a marauding Arsenal side get the rhythm they have showcased over the recent weeks. We look at the positives that the side needs to build upon and the negatives …
The Apparent Problems at Anfield that Need Resolving

The Apparent Problems at Anfield that Need Resolving

Liverpool made the worst possible start to the new year with the loss to West Ham. The 2-0 defeat was made more painful for their fans as the side showed no fight and were totally outplayed by the Hammers. With just 18 games left to play in the league,  Klopp surely has a huge task at hand to land a European spot with a squad as mediocre as this. Mignolet needs upgrading Mignolet did not actually make a howler in …

Stoke City v. Liverpool | League Cup Semi-Final Preview

The recent history of this fixture gets fans of either side in a twist before kickoff.  The Britannia stadium is host to a team in peculiar form at the moment.  Stoke have looked a revitalized side in several big-game matches: 4-3 at Everton, and 2-0 against both Manchester United and Manchester City in the month of December.  But, in the very same month, the Potters have lost to West Brom and Crystal Palace while playing West Ham to a draw. No …
