Jordan Henderson | Player Performance Analysis vs Southampton

Jordan Henderson | Player Performance Analysis vs Southampton

This is a really big year for Jordan Henderson and for Liverpool in general. Liverpool made a decent enough start by claiming the three points against Ronald Koeman’s new look Southampton side but the performance itself was nothing to write home about. Few Liverpool players truly excelled throughout the entire game although Raheem Sterling did well for most of the game with Joe Allen also making an impact when coming off the bench. Jordan Henderson was probably one of the …
Who Could Replace Steven Gerrard as Liverpool Captain?

Who Could Replace Steven Gerrard as Liverpool Captain?

After Steven Gerrard retired from international duty, it has lead me to thinking, who would be the most suitable candidates to replace Gerrard for Liverpool when he inevitably retires from club level football? Loyalty to a club is something hard to come by these days in football, yet after a career spanning 15 years, Liverpool has been Gerrard's one club. Having been through the ups of Istanbul, and the downs of the well documented Chelsea incident last season, he has …

High Drama in Brazil Saves Hodgson's Blushes

England went into the 2014 World Cup with a good squad combining youth, experience, and one which was free from the hype that has surrounded previous “Golden Generations”. This might have been partly thanks to Hodgson, who showed as little ambition off the pitch as he did on it, playing down chances from the day England qualified.

Is Current England Side Over-Rated? A Comparison With Italy

England 3 Peru 0 | Match Report & Tactical Analysis

In a game when Hodgson would be free to experiment, England’s ‘safest’ team started the game. The youngest in the XI was Welbeck (23) who already had 21 caps to his name prior to kick-off. The expected 4-2-3-1 was used, with Gerrard dropping the deepest to build up from the back, but despite easily keeping possession, penetration was very limited.
