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.

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.
