The downside of Social Media

Been a lot of social media blogs tweets face book comments etc from a section of  our worldwide fan base scapegoating certain players. Henderson , Mignolet, Lovren Moreno  even Klopp, to name the major focus. It seems this gives an unfettered platform for frankly comments that go beyond reasonable discussion. Lovren's family threatened, Henderson taken over from Lucas as the whipping boy . These are not automatons , all footballers form will dip from time to time, and social media comments…

Sevilla - How, Why And Looking Forward

There's no denying it, the result against Sevilla felt like a kick in the teeth. And yet, in years gone by most of us would have happily accepted an away draw to a club that had recently beaten us in a European final. It was the manner of the recent draw that made it hard to swallow, going ahead by three goals and then conceding three goals. I would argue, with the benefit of retrospection, perhaps we shouldn't be quite so surprised with what occurred in Seville and it may even work in our…

As I didn't get to view the whole game in real time I searched around for…

We need only to look at his goal yesterday, how cool, calm and collected was he to finish like that, he made it look so easy, this is what sturridge is all about but he simply can't do this sitting on a bench and here lies the problem. Klopp clearly favours Firmino but clearly…

What next?

Since Liverpool's rather bemusing thumping by Spurs I've spent a couple of sleepless nights wondering how on Earth the club turns this situation around. With about a dozen weeks remaining until the January transfer window opens any answer to our prayers will have to come from within the club, at least…

If A Contractor Offered to Rebuild Your Home...

You inherited a house in need of repair - leaky roof, cracked foundation, etc. and in response to an ad, a famous architect offered to rebuild your home using an unusual methodology - he proposed to repair the roof first, holding it in place with wire and using the existing foundation (cracks and all) as a base.  The prestige of having a house built by a famous architect was too great to pass up, so you accepted his proposal and work began on the house.  Everything seemed to be proceeding…
