Manchester City vs Liverpool – Player Ratings

So let's get this over with, shall we? Alisson - Made a couple of good saves but was iffy with his distribution and kept insisting on giving it to Lovren. 7 Trent Arnold - Looked complacent and a bit tired. Sane had him on toast for much of the game. His superb ball into Robbo for the goal gives him an extra point. 5 Lovren - Terrible. At fault for first goal in somehow not ...

LFC Advent Calendar 16 – Jermaine Pennant

What can you say about Jermaine Pennant that hasn't been spread across tabloids already? That he is was the first (and currently, only) professional football player to wear an electronic tag on the pitch? Or that he cost Arsenal £2 million as a 15 year old? How about the player that put in a man of the match performance in a Champions League final just a year after leaving prison? Jermaine is ...

LFC Advent Calendar 11 – Florent Sinama Pongolle

Florent Sinama Pongolle's time at Liverpool left a lot to be desired.

He then became a journeyman and joined a whole bunch of clubs he would probably rather not think about. Florent was something of ...

Joe Gomez – A New Breed of Defender

The £3.5m Liverpool paid for 18 year old Joe Gomez back in 2015 might have seemed abit steep at the time, especially when you take into account the fact that we splashed-out a mere £500k more for the best defender to ever grace British shores a year later. Joe's now worth £25.2m so put that in your prudish, tight-arse pipes and smoke it. I am big fan of Joe, and his ilk ...

Ki-Jana Hoever – Liverpool’s New Wonderkid

Remember when Bruno Cheyrou was the next Zidane, and his mate Sinama-Pongolle was about to have the same impact in the Premier League as Thierry Henry did?

Goodnight, Sweet Prince.

So this is it, our day of reckoning.   We knew this would happen. It has, after-all, happened before, hasn't it? Suarez and Coutinho to Barcelona, Torres to Chelsea, Bišćan to Panathinaikos – and now you. Just as we began to believe that we would no longer be the jilted ex, no longer the secure but timid, lovable in a way, but only as a friend, content with second place, also-rans; we lose ...
