The Curious Case of Jordan Henderson - Part 2

The Curious Case of Jordan Henderson - Part 2

From the moment that Liverpool agreed to part with 20 million in 2011 for the young and raw talent that was Jordan Henderson he had his doubters. Nearly eight years on those doubters still remain. I can't remember a player in recent history for the club that has divided opinion so much.

Who’s bottling it, and does Jurgen Klopp HAVE to win a trophy this season?

Who’s bottling it, and does Jurgen Klopp HAVE to win a trophy this season?

I could normally spend hours on end discussing the beautiful game with friends or even strangers without getting bored. But in recent weeks I can’t actually believe what I’ve heard or seen written by some Liverpool fans and pundits.

Fekir Failure Good Business for Liverpool

Liverpool's decision not to go back in for Nabil Fekir can be described as "microeconomic" policy - long term, structural reform designed to produce benefits over an extended period of time.

It seems that ever since FSG were burned by the colossal failure of the Andy Carroll deal, they have been determined not to be the laughing stock of the transfer market. And rightly so.

The Pursuit of Excellence

The Pursuit of Excellence

Any Liverpool fan worth their salt is always keen to see which players Jürgen Klopp will be entrusting his vision to come match day. There were undoubtedly many of you that were surprised by not only the number of changes made for a Derby, but also those used and in such different positions to where they are normally stationed.

Big European Nights

Big European Nights

“Big European Nights”, a cliché borne from fact. From the late seventies I wasn’t born for and early eighties that I was too young to remember. I remember the 90s, and that first season in the Greedy League.  The first home group game, on the fateful day of 11 September 2001...
