Had our defenders really been that bad?

The Liverpool defence is a funny thing. Depending on who you talk to it is either a 'clown car', as one Spurs supporting historian keeps calling it, or a juggernaut that's slowly building momentum. Many of us are still undecided because it's difficult to get an objective assessment of our back line. That's why when I saw a table of statistics regarding our centre backs, published just before we played Everton, I kept hold of it. It makes interesting reading:…

Curious Doings At The Etihad

Manure 3, City 2.  What a game, what a result!  The all conquering confidence of City has taken a big hit.  Two losses in consecutive games will surely have an effect on their performance!  We should send the special one a fitting gift in appreciation.  Something in the mode of a cake with a measure of quick acting laxative!  Seriously, a better outcome could not be envisioned.  We must go into Tuesday's game with the approach that we are going to fight an alpha dog who wants to reassert his…

Is Can bigger than Liverpool?

I've got to be honest, I was somewhat taken aback when I read this paragraph taken from an interview with Emre Can in the German publication 'Suddeutsche Zeitung' this week.

"Sure, the Bundesliga would interest me, why not? Although I must say honestly that the level has waned in recent years. The Premier League has the power to spend more money on players than the Bundesliga. This is very, very important for players. I have the self-confidence to say that my…

Carragher's Spit

Ive just seen the footage of this, what the hell was he thinking, what a disgusting thing to do. Provacation is no excuse, i'd much rather someone punch me than spit at me, i think it's one of  the most vile thing's one human can do too another. He's let himself, the club and the people of liverpool down bigtime in my opinion, his job at sky must surely be at risk, shame on you Carra.

Why Not ?

Two blogs in three days - going for a record.  If or when Can leaves for a more pleasant clime, LFC  will be in need of a defensive midfielder.  Someone who can break up enemy forays into our final third,  excellent passer to the front three to initiate attacks, and has a cannon of a right foot.  I realize half (if not all) of you will think I'm going crazy, but why not Jonjo Shelvy?  He seems to have found his mojo at Newcastle and…

Firmino cleared of making racist comment

The FA has said:

Following a detailed investigation into an allegation of discriminatory conduct against Liverpool’s Roberto Firmino by Everton’s Mason Holgate, The FA can confirm that it will not be taking any disciplinary action against Firmino.

The decision

Having considered all of the available evidence, we consider it is not sufficient to raise a charge against Firmino. However, we are…

Lets call a spade a spade

I'm getting really hacked of with penalties being given for the slightest touch, you can wrestle someone in the box at a corner or free kick and nothings given yet the merest touch with a boot or goalkeepers little finger and the usual suspects go down as idf they have been poleaxed.Then on football shows after they are lauded by the pundits for being clever and fooling the referee. So lets call a spade a spade its not cleverness its CHEATING.

FA Cup quarter-final draw rigged?

Leicester v Chelsea
Manchester United v Brighton
Sheffield Wednesday or Swansea v Rochdale or Tottenham
Wigan or Manchester City v Southampton

TV looking for a global audience from the Semi-Finals and the Final with the big teams? Do Spurs play at Wembley for their Semi-Final? I hope for a Rochdale v Wigan Final.

Dele Alli hack by Reds fan

I came across this article in our local news this morning and thought after the Spurs debacle to post it here. (Haven't tried including link to original article yet so copied and pasted).

4th PLACE?

We can all agree that City have the title wrapped up bar a highly unlikely total implosion.  So who will fill the other 3 CL positions?  Even though Arsenal are 8 points behind 4th place at the moment I'm including them.  They generally finish the season strongly.  All 5 of the candidates have shown signs of weakness recently so it's very debatable which 3 will join City in the CL  next season.  Her's my assessment for what it is worth:

MAN UNITED - They have spent a lot of money…

Just be glad you don't support Leeds United...

This is the new badge for the rebranding of Leeds United. Fair to say it hasn't gone down well. I'm not quite sure what it's supposed to represent, maybe someone trying to clear a chesty cough or someone trying to entice a trained kestrel to land.

UPDATE

Leeds United have listened to their supporters and re-opened consultation on the badge. Will wonders…

Still A Red

I realize I have been quiet this season, but RA makes sitting down for any period of time something other than a joy.  But today I decided to start my Spring/Summer rant early to make up for my absence. 

1.  First the loss of Coutinho.  I hated to see the Count go, but, isn't what Barca did to us, exactly what we did to RB Leipzig?  We need to make LFC more attractive to players and they will begin to stay for their entire Premier League careers.

2.  Summer Replacements.   I…

What's going on with our keepers?

The situation with our goalkeepers seemed fairly settled, with Mignolet between the sticks for our league games and Karius in goal for our cup games, then before our biggest domestic league game Mignolet is dropped and told Karius will take over his responsibilities in the league from now on, or as Klopp put it...

"With goalkeepers you have to do it like this. Usually I could say it's a decision for today but if Loris now is able to perform, he will stay in the…

Klopp explains why Coutinho left

This will probably be my last blog on Coutinho but I think it's worth highlighting what Klopp said in the Man City press conference (it's free on the This Is Anfield website if you want to view it) as it ties up some loose ends. Klopp was surprisingly honest and this is what he said:

"There was no other option. I knew there was a moment when it would come up again in this transfer window and it came up massively. It would have been very difficult if we say – and we could have done…

Tommy Lawrence RIP

Very sorry to hear former Liverpool goalkeeper Tommy Lawrence had died aged 77.  He was a key member of Shankly's great 1960's team and his claim to fame was that he was the first sweeper-keeper.  Shankly encouraged him to come out of his box to tidy up opposition attacks which made a lot of sense as that team played a very high defensive line and could sometimes be caught square.  Not all fans rated him highly and Shankly was rumoured to want to replace him with Gordon Banks at one stage…

Coutinho's Goodbye Message

I've been waiting for this because so far we've heard at length from pretty much everyone but the man himself:

Since the moment I arrived in Liverpool , me and my family have been made to feel so welcome and have made so many friends.

On the pitch and off the pitch, we have experienced the beauty of this club and its fans. In turn, I hope I have delivered memories and moments that have brought happiness to the Liverpool…
