    Sir Alex Ferguson

    It's not often that a manager can switch to good, old-fashioned 4-4-2 and be thought of as a tactical genius, but when Sir Alex Ferguson deployed his troops in a formation that many believed he had turned his back on forever, it was another demonstration of why he's still at the top of his game...

    Is Crouch worth £15m?

    Discuss. Benitez seems to think so..... Liverpool manager Rafael Benitez has hinted Peter Crouch can leave should the club receive £15m for the striker. Benitez also confirmed that midfielder Harry Kewell and first-team coach Alex Miller would be leaving Anfield. "Crouch wants to play every...

    Reserve League Play-Off Final

    Liverpool's senior side may not picked up any silverware this year, but on Wednesday night at Anfield, Gary Ablett's reserve team were on hand to show them how it's done. Having won their regional divisional with room to spare, the youngsters were sent out to face Aston Villa's second string for...

    "squeaky-bottom time."

    For the first time since 1968, the destination of the title will be decided on the last day between two teams on level points. One slip-up, one mistake, and an entire season's hard work will come crashing down around the ears of one unfortunate manager. Hundreds of millions of people will crowd...

    2007/08 season

    For all the moments of high drama, the goals, the saves and the tears, I've got a funny feeling that the 2007/08 season will be remembered as the year that the owners of football clubs across the land finally lost their tenuous grip on reality. It's as if there is a private competition between...

    Chelsea v Liverpool

    Frank Lampard has never been the most popular of footballers, certainly not with fans of other clubs, but you'd have to have a heart of stone not to stand up and applaud his astonishing composure after a emotional night at Stamford Bridge. Seconds after seeing a goal they were already busy...

    Welcome to Cukoo Farm

    I was on the train last night and listening to the Radio. They was talking about Col Ewes new ground and the fact that "Welcome to Cuckoo Farm" will hardly be the most intimidating message like "This is Anfield" when the players walk out of the tunnel towards the pitch next season. This got me...

    'You'll Never Walk Alone'

    The parties went on long into the night. For the third time in four seasons, Liverpool were through to the final four of Europe's most prestigious competition. Rafa Benitez had asked and the Anfield faithful had provided. The old stadium was rocked on its foundations by the noisy supporters and...

    Chelsea scramble through

    Chelsea scrambled into the semi-finals of the Champions League with a 2-0 victory over Zico's Fenerbahce that was anything but comfortable, either for the club or for those unfortunate enough to be watching. The continual criticism of their minimalist style of football can be tedious, but you...

    Arsenal v Liverpool

    Arsene Wenger was left baffled by his team's failure to beat Liverpool in an intruiging contest at The Emirates, but refused to agree that their opponent's away goal made them favourites to progress to the last four. Arsenal certainly had the better of the game, particularly in the second half...

    Title Race Still On

    From the way that Manchester United fans have been celebrating, you’d think that their lead was significantly more than eight goals. Arsenal fans, likewise, have been mooching about the place as if they’ve just been docked ten points for passing the ball too much. It’s not over yet, not by a...

    Trouble In Merseyside

    They say that lightning doesn’t strike twice, but with momentum growing at both ends of Stanley Park, it looks like now might be a good time to run for cover. Everton are more than capable of finishing fourth and, at the same time, no-one would be surprised if Liverpool snaffled a sixth European...

    Arsenal rue missed chances

    How can two goalless draws be so different? Chelsea’s blank with Olympiakos on Wednesday morning was so desperately dull that it could have come straight from Dante’s sixth circle. This, though, was so different. Still no goals to write about, but it was never anything less than pulsating. Only...

    Liverpool Not Out Yet

    Liverpool fans must be feeling numb by now. There's only so much bad news you can take before you end up rocking backwards and forwards in the corner of the room, dribbling on your shoes and the weekend defeat to Barnsley was the final straw for most long-suffering Reds. Never has there been...

    Well done Luton

    When Crouch got that goal I thought they were done, but even though the equaliser was a bit spawny, they certainly deserved the draw. A bumper pay day at Anfield awaits and God knows they need it. Fair play to Brizzle and Sheffield Wednesday to, another good day in the FA Cup!
  18. Luis Garcia

    The following is a letter that Garcia wrote to Liverpool FC to put on thier site. A very nice gesture IMHO. Dear Reds, First of all I'd like to apologise for not having been back in touch sooner, but I needed to take some time to take on board all the recent changes and then to put down...

    Take a bow Darren Bent

    Turns down the Spammers Good move mate, why would a £75k a week deal (presumably plus huge signing-on fee) with them be the best move? Hold out for a move to Anfield, hopefully they can bring him on enough to fulfill his potential and provide England with another decent striking option!
  20. The Nightmare Scenario.....

    We stay up with Tilly and Brush - and Freddy signs a new contract. We start next season with a string of comfortable wins as our battle hardened championship squad displays its new found confidence. By Christmas we are 5 points clear at the top of the table and receiving blanket media coverage...
