Thirty-Two Years Following Liverpool - A Chronology

Thirty-Two Years Following Liverpool - A Chronology

1988 - Red shirt with Candy splayed across the front, a seven-year old is hooked. 1989 – Hillsborough in April and Michael Thomas in May, it is all too much for a kid to take. 1990 – My favourite player, John Barnes, lights up the league and King Kenny tosses the tracksuit aside for a final appearance as Liverpool win Number Eighteen. I could get used to this. 1991 – Kenny stuns by leaving midseason and club legend, Graeme Souness, …

Jordan Rossiter: Player Performance Analysis of the Liverpool Prodigy

Liverpool’s stuttering start to the season survived yet another scare at the hands of Middlesbrough, courtesy of an epic penalty shootout. The Reds dominated play, clocking a skewed 78% of the possession. However, their possession didn't translate into anything concrete as the side was starved of chances by a tight Middlesbrough defence. The night marked the full Liverpool debuts of two players at either ends of their careers with Rickie Lambert and Jordan Rossiter taking their place in the starting …
