Why Emre Can Shouldn't Be Written Off

Why Emre Can Shouldn't Be Written Off

The defeat against Crystal Palace was Liverpool's first under new manager Jurgen Klopp and fans are looking for players to blame. It's natural of course. People, not just fans, aren't able to process the unknown very well. If Liverpool lose it has to be because of something, it can't just be one of those things that happens. I'm a fan of Emre Can. The German powerhouse has an abundance of talent but as things stand the majority of this talent …
Rodgers Out, Or We're Out

Rodgers Out, Or We're Out

Rewind to the first Brendan Rodgers, Liverpool Football Club press conference. The press, naturally, were gathered and Liverpool’s eighteenth manager was introduced. Tom Werner, the introducing board member, labelled Rodgers as a “forward thinking coach” who would bring a style of “relentless, attacking football”. Fast forward back to the present and the reality is much different. Liverpool are four years into Brendan Rodgers’ tenure and have scored three goals in five games at the start of the 2015/2016 Premier League …
Milner & Henderson: Is It Enough?

Milner & Henderson: Is It Enough?

Jordan Henderson and James Milner present an odd little puzzle for Liverpool’s midfield.  In many ways, their playing style is very similar.  Both are big runners that have a sort of “engine” quality to them.  Though Milner floated from position to position at Manchester City, Henderson has predominantly played that box-to-box central midfielder role at Liverpool.  Now that they’re to be the new midfield pairing (?) in Anfield, we need to take a look at a few things: how they’ve …
Quality versus Quantity | Clubs Should Be Wiser With Their Money

Quality versus Quantity | Clubs Should Be Wiser With Their Money

‘If you spend more than £100 million, you expect to be challenging for the league.’ Sorry about this Brendan, I know you’ve got enough on your plate at the moment, but you can’t expect to get away with comments like that with Liverpool finishing 25 points off the pace. Since 2012, Rodgers has bought 24 players, with Daniel Sturridge and Philippe Coutinho the only confirmed hits. This year’s crop of Lambert, Lallana, Can, Lovren, Markovic, Manquillo, Moreno and, the crowning …
Sherwood Vs Rodgers: Timmy Tactically Outclasses Brendan

Sherwood Vs Rodgers: Timmy Tactically Outclasses Brendan

He did it. Tim Sherwood improved his ratio of season to cup final appearances by defeating Brendan Rodgers' Liverpool in what was a comfortable win for Villa in the FA Cup Semi final. Taking nothing away from Sherwood, he just followed what the likes of Swansea, Arsenal and Manchester United have done in the previous month to trouble Liverpool and yet again Brendan Rodgers had no answer for it. The concerning part for Liverpool fans is the fact Rodgers if …
No Success For Liverpool Until Transfer Approach Is Fixed

No Success For Liverpool Until Transfer Approach Is Fixed

Although the application of "never say never" holds very true to the game of football, it is safe to say that in all probability, Liverpool are going to finish outside of the top 4 at the end of the season. While this looked like a given back in November and early December, Liverpool's terrific performances in 2015 which saw them go on a 13 game unbeaten run got back hopes of a top-4 finish amongst the Kop faithful. However, in …
Liverpool or Manchester United - who will clinch the crucial 4th place?

Liverpool or Manchester United - who will clinch the crucial 4th place?

This Sunday’s clash between Liverpool and Manchester United at Anfield was in many ways the most important game of the season for both teams. With both teams seemingly out of the title race, the stakes were still high at Anfield with the much important 4th place, which guarantees Champions League football, in sight. In the end it was Manchester United who got the better of their Liverpool rivals in what was their best performance all season, but things were made …
Emre Can | The Main Man for Liverpool?

Emre Can | The Main Man for Liverpool?

Is Emre Can becoming a main man for Liverpool? Before Christmas both the  players and manager Brendan Rodgers were coming under increasing pressure as the team slipped further away from fourth spot. The Merseyside club were 9 points away from fourth placed West Ham which may have caused Rodgers to make a change to formation and tactics. Since then, Liverpool reverted to the 3-4-3 formation and have got 23 points out of a possible 27 in their last 9 games. There have …
