Fan Diary – 17 October 2010: Goodbye, Hicks and Gillett (And The Crowd Went Wild…)

Posted on by Ethan Armstrong

Ding dong: the ding dongs are dead. It will be some time before Liverpool supporters know what we’re getting with John Henry and NESV, but we can at least bask in the joy that comes with departure of tweedle-dee and … Continue reading

Fan Diary – 12 October 2010: Liverpool; John Henry' High Court; Peter Lim; This Writer's Head Implodes

Posted on by Ethan Armstrong

  In a handful of days we’ll know whether or not Liverpool FC will have new owners. Whether or not the club will go into administration and be deducted nine points. Whether or not the club will shed the debt … Continue reading

Fan Diary – 21 Sept 2010: The Goals In A Loss

Posted on by Ethan Armstrong

Despite the miserable performance (and result), I needed those two goals from Steven Gerrard. Badly. After Liverpool’s goalless, soulless visit to Birmingham the previous weekend, I expected Manchester United to annihilate as literally as possible within the law (I hear it’s a … Continue reading

Fan Diary – 30 August 2010: The Return Of Fernando Torres

Posted on by Ethan Armstrong

The kid is back. Throughout last season, Liverpool supporters groaned as Fernando Torres fell again and again into the arms of Ol’ Mistress Injury. We groaned throughout the summer’s World Cup as he looked far from his best and couldn’t find a … Continue reading

Fan Diary – 15 August, 2010: Avoiding The Result (Part 2)

Posted on by Ethan Armstrong

Okay. A late night rant (to be posted in the morning). Before we berate the dubious intentions of a prominent Stateside soccer broadcaster, we should probably first go through that bit where we say that the opinions of Mr Ethan Armstrong don’t … Continue reading

Fan Diary – 15 August, 2010: Avoiding The Result

Posted on by Ethan Armstrong

It’s been a while since I’ve been unable to watch Liverpool’s opening day match live. The last time was 2007 against Aston Villa. It went like this: George (A Mancunian; a regular at the brewery where I bartended; a City diehard; a Setanta subscriber) plopped the tape of … Continue reading

World Cup Diary: Time To Choose…

Posted on by Ethan Armstrong

How did Spain and the Netherlands come to be in the final? How can this be? These are my two favorite National teams to watch (after the USA, of course). These are surely the two greatest footballing countries to have never won a … Continue reading

World Cup Diary: Surviving The Group Stage

Posted on by Ethan Armstrong

Is this World Cup smoking crack? It has been a strange one. Sure, there have been moments of  crisp, clear beauty (beginning with Siphiwe Tshabalala’s screaming torpedo of a shot in the first match), but for me the event has … Continue reading

Fan Diary #35 – Delay The Broadcast

Posted on by Ethan Armstrong

  I admit I’ve been spoiled. For most of the past two and half years I’ve enjoyed just about every Liverpool fixture live. No matter my late hours working in restaurants, I’ve usually been able to trek down to our … Continue reading

Fan Diary #34 – Liverpool In Madrid

Posted on by Ethan Armstrong

Eyjafjallajokull. Yes this is what comes out when I drink too much coffee and then absentmindedly drum my fingers on the keyboard without looking. But it’s also the name of the Icelandic volcano that has been spewing ash into the air causing … Continue reading

Fan Diary #33 – What Were You Thinking Mssrs Babel and Benitez??

Posted on by Ethan Armstrong

I’m more confused than anything else. In my last post I asked that we maintain the good form, no matter what the outcome of the season. I should have added we must cling to clear-headed decision making from now to … Continue reading

Fan Diary #32 – Since Last We Spoke…

Posted on by Ethan Armstrong

In my last post (before the United match), I was filled with cautious optimism. But ultimately I had every reason to believe Liverpool would put up a better fight at Old Trafford than they ended up doing. Even when the … Continue reading

Fan Diary #31 – Fernando Torres, Liverpool's Number Nine (Bounce!)

Posted on by Ethan Armstrong

Babel lofted the clearance from deep inside Liverpool’s half. The ball somehow latched on to Torres’ homing beacon. The defender let it bounce. Torres ate it up like a starved Bengal tiger. He kept the other defender just at bay, picked … Continue reading

Fan Diary #30 – Four Goals Against Pompey, Can We Carry On Against Lille?

Posted on by Ethan Armstrong

Who were we watching? Standing in the pub, we made the irresistible jokes about how Barcelona had flown to Anfield and donned our side’s red jerseys. The Liverpool side that couldn’t carve out a goal against Wigan or Lille was nowhere to be … Continue reading

Fan Diary #29 – Why Can't Liverpool Keep Any Good Form Going?

Posted on by Ethan Armstrong

 I’m the fan who demands my one year in denial. I cling to the hopes of last season, refusing to believe something can’t be salvaged from this one (as the definition of salvage changes from Can we still finish top four? to … Continue reading

Fan Diary #28 – Liverpool at Wigan: Give Me Some Triangles

Posted on by Ethan Armstrong

Last night I hunted down a clip on my 501 goals DVD. It’s Liverpool’s Craig Johnston talking sometime in the 80s about Liverpool’s approach: “It’s the simplicity of the game that Liverpool play that’s so amazing… You get the ball at … Continue reading

Fan Diary #27 – At Least Torres Is Back…

Posted on by Ethan Armstrong

Well, Torres is back. That’s about the biggest consolation I can take from the last two outings. We may have gotten the right result against Unirea, but if you didn’t watch that match, trust me, the outcome doesn’t reflect the … Continue reading

Fan Diary #26 – Not As Devastated By The Arsenal Loss As I Could Be

Posted on by Ethan Armstrong

We could see the goal coming. Rosicky tore down the right side while our defense struggled to get back into position. His cross was going nowhere but to Diaby’s head which had no one marking it. Diaby knocked the ball past Pepe … Continue reading
