Liverpool Fans – Their Own Worst Enemy

Throughout our history, Liverpool FC have prided ourselves on the unrelenting support and belief of the fans. Some attribute that attitude to the City's hardships, particularly in the years of the Thatcher government.

Gini, Henderson & Milner (our unsung heroes)

How often does the dogged midfielder get all the plaudits? My answer to that would be very rarely, but in Liverpool we have not just one but three midfielders who go out and leave everything on the pitch. Gini as we like to call him for one has been ever present in the Liverpool's line up since the start of the season! He's been so impressive that Klopp just can't ...

The Liverpool Squad – Part 2: The Full-Back Problem

Unlike the much changed situation concerning goalkeepers,  the full-back problem still seems far from anything desirable. If anything, the squad in this position seems even thinner than it was last season. Brad Smith (permanently) and Jon Flanagan (on loan) have left the club.
