Did Jamie Carragher Deserve A New Contract?

He has clocked up over 640 appearances for the Reds and over the years has displayed the sprit and fight that Liverpool need right now but his form over the last few seasons and this season in particular has been questionable. This leaves us to ask the question whether or […]

King Can Rise To The Challenge

For some, the end of Rio Ferdinand’s World Cup also sent a blast across the bows of English hopes of winning the trophy. One of the squads truly great players being forced out simply weakens the side is the consensus, but me I’m not so disillusioned by the news. Yes […]

Do Liverpool Football Club A Favour Rafa: QUIT

All great relationships come to an end, the natural course having run as far as it can. Sometimes they start passionately and brightly and quickly burn away to nothingness. Sometimes, they are a slowly burning and taut affair that consumes all within them in a supernova of passion oblivious to […]

The England Outsiders #3. The Centre Halves

Well it’s not been the best season for either of England’s first choice centre halves so far. Enough has been written about John Terry’s problems and Rio Ferdinand’s chronic back injury to have caused meltdown on Google through searching for both issues. Thankfully, Terry’s form seems to be picking up […]

Could Glen Johnson's Knee Injury Help Liverpool?

Liverpool announced that Glen Johnson will miss at least a month after tearing a knee ligament.  It may be paradoxical to claim this for a recent £18m signing, but Johnson’s absence may aid the Reds in their battle for fourth. Johnson is an attacking right back.  He’s adept.  He gets […]

Liverpool Stand On The Edge Of Failure

The morning after Liverpool crashed out of the Champions League has seen the club reiterate that Rafa Benitez’s position is safe.  Not qualifying for the Champions League knock out stage is a big blow for a club that strives for parity at Europe’s top table. Throughout this season, Liverpool have […]

Benitez Cannot Buckle Under Pressure

“It is difficult for us to qualify, but not impossible,We have to win our game and see what happens with Fiorentina and Lyon. Then we will approach the last game.” Benitez has certainly fought his corner today after the galling last minute equaliser Liverpool conceded in the Stade Gerland last […]

Lethargic and Disjointed But Liverpool Can’t Panic

The unfortunate downside of modern technology means that any armchair fan can now comment on any team without actually seeing the game. As I type this, I’m listening to Radio 5 and Liverpool “fans” are calling for the head of Benitez. “The worst display I’ve ever seen from a Liverpool […]

Will Daniel Agger Stay At Liverpool?

Daniel Agger is stalling on signing a new contract with Liverpool FC. The obvious problem: his position is overcrowded with quality. The top Danish centre back must compete with Jamie Carragher and Martin Skrtel who have enjoyed the bulk of the starts this season and don’t forget Sami Hyypia. Jamie […]

Liverpool Have Blown Their Title Chance

Alex Ferguson will be singing the praises of Manchester City today after Liverpool stuttered, spluttered and failed to find the winning goal they needed to have any chance of winning the title. From a fantastic position before Christmas, Liverpool have thrown point after point away to allow Manchester United to […]

Harlem Shake Goes Soccer Style [VIDEO]

This isn’t something you see every day. Jimmy Conrad and a cast of characters were at a pub in New York City to watch Real Madrid versus Manchester United. But before the match started, madness prevailed and everyone did the Harlem Shake, soccer style. This is hilarious and certainly worth […]

News From Around The World of Soccer

Premier League CEO Richard Scudamore believes that Premiership clubs should reduce ticket prices next season especially in light of the new, massive TV deal. However, he believes that it’s up to the clubs to make that decision, which will mean that very few clubs will comply with his wishes. US-based […]
