    Blimey is this bloke for real: In his previous autobiography, published in 2007, Gerrard described Diouf as a lazy and self-interested character. "His attitude was all wrong," Gerrard wrote at the time. "I felt he wasn't really a***d about putting his body on the line to get Liverpool back at...
  2. Heysell 29th May 1985

    Today marks the 29th anniversary since 39 supporters sadly lost there lives at the disaster at the Heysell Stadium. This is one of four major tragedies involving British sides where football fans have died when attending a match which should never have happened. As a mark of respect to those...

  6. Question Liverpool in the Cup or Wembley?

    If we made through to either one which would be more rewarding? Financially is the trip to Anfield worth more a trip to Wembley in JPT? And for us as fans? Surley a cup tie at Anfield has more of a buzz?? Is the FA cup third round now our 'cup' priority??

    Tips, betting stories, etc

    This is the place to declare the bets you're about to place, post tips, etc. After timers ("I had a 37,843/1 15-fold the other day") will not be welcomed. Looking ahead to this weekend, given that the game is at Anfield and Man Utd's defence has looked anything but watertight of late, surely...

  10. Liverpool away

    Looking forward to seeing the youths at Anfield tomorrow night and only £4 to get in!!! Result. Leaving at 9am and cant wait in what should be a cracking day. Sitting in THE KOP singing southend songs will be unreal. Liverpool youth team are averaging 3 goals a game this season so could be...

    Are you going to Liverpool?

    If your going to Liverpool it would be nice if all our support would crowd together and be seen rather than just being scattered around the stadium! :loyalsupporter:

  13. FA Youth Cup Round 3

    Unfortunately I cant get to the game. Like to wish all the lads all the best of luck for the game, take their chances and hopefully take another championship scalp and get the chance to play Liverpool at Anfield. 7pm K/O @ Pride Park tonight. Hopefully we take a decent following up there...

    Chris Almond

    Ive heard he's a nutter SKELMERSDALE United flyer Chris Almond is being tracked by League Two Southend United - as manager Tommy Lawson prepares his side for a major cup final clash with Liverpool. Ahead of the Liverpool Senior Cup showpiece on Saturday, the latest exciting prospect to...
  15. Blackpool Must Remain Frugal While Aboard the Gravy Train

    The moment that the seasoned Brett Ormerod poked home Blackpool’s winner against Cardiff City in the 43rd minute will no doubt go down in the history of the club and town, but it stands to reason that the club now has an important decision to make in its history. Ian Holloway, the charismatic...

    West Ham. Not Good.

    WEST HAM ARE DOOMED After the excitement and drama of the weekend, here was the comedown. Manchester City against Manchester United was a tense, gritty battle of attrition. Tottenham against Chelsea was an explosive clash, packed with action. This was like watching a game of chicken between a...

    Nothing To Love At City Either

    I was delighted to see Manchester City lose this weekend. How appalling is that? It made me feel dirty. It is a truly sad man who takes pleasure in the misfortune of others, but it's becoming increasingly difficult to feel anything other than contempt for Roberto Mancini's men. They were well...

    Chips and ???

    It was first drawn to my attention when I attended a game at Anfield years ago that "Northern boys love their gravy." I want to take this to a poll. If you could only have one of the following toppings with chips what would you have? I will separate Salt & Vinegar. I will give the option of...

    Stick With Rafa

    (For a different paper this time, hence the shorter word count) Is the FA Cup important again? It's the only explanation for the sudden turnaround at Anfield. Like a battered wife, the Liverpool fans have taken one beating too many and they're rising up, teeth bared, against Rafa Benitez...

    Save Rafa....

    Out of the title race, out of the Champions League, out of the League Cup and out of the FA Cup. Under normal circumstances, it's obvious that Rafa Benitez would be out of a job this morning but, unfortunately for Liverpool, these are far from normal circumstances. They are broke, weighed down...
