Liverpool FC – Iago Aspas Can Become a Starter Sooner Than Predicted

Posted on 31 Jul, 2013, by in Soccer

Instead of moving forward, Liverpool take steps back. Further from contention for a European spot in the Premier League, and not really in a good position to turn their Europa League knockout tie on its head, as Brendan Rodgers learnt once more that playing with Steven Gerrard and Joe Allen together isn’t good for a team that simply doesn’t know how to play defensively.

Posted on 20 Jan, 2013, by in Soccer

Is it all smooth sailing from here, now that Luis Suarez has Daniel Sturridge playing with him at the front?

Liverpool FC – Too Much Luis Suarez, Not Enough Steven Gerrard

Posted on 27 Dec, 2012, by in Soccer

While the problems Liverpool showcase each time they lose under Brendan Rodgers can’t be summed down by pointing a finger at one single player, there is a certain approach that is easy to pick out. Too much focus and reliance on Luis Suarez, while forgetting how much Steven Gerrard still means to this team. More

Liverpool FC – Steven Gerrard Finally Finds His Place

Posted on 23 Dec, 2012, by in Soccer

He wasn’t the best player on the pitch in the 4-0 win, but Steven Gerrard, maybe for the first time this season, was finally completely comfortable in the role he was playing for Liverpool in the midfield, while his manager tries to perfect the roles of the players around him. More

Liverpool FC – Brendan Rodgers Need a Little Bit of Luck

Posted on 29 Nov, 2012, by in Soccer

They’re going in the right direction, but the lack of another finishing leg next to Luis Suarez simply screams to the sky after each match in which Liverpool failed to score, or score enough. Brendan Rodgers had his team playing well in a fixture they lost, but he needed a bit more than that. More

Liverpool FC – Stewart Downing Scoring Every two Months

Posted on 26 Oct, 2012, by in Soccer

Nothing impressive about the win over Anzhi Makhachkala, so you have to dig deep to find things to be happy about. Stewart Downing scoring another impressive Europa League goal is probably it, as Liverpool struggled to come up with the 1-0 win. More

Liverpool – Stewart Downing’s Goal Means Absolutely Nothing

Posted on 3 Aug, 2012, by in Soccer

Of course it’s nice to open a new era with a win, but even with the fact that Stewart Downing scored his finest goal since coming to Liverpool which isn’t saying much, it’s only a qualifying round in the Europa League, and only FC Gomel from Belarus. More

Posted on 18 Mar, 2012, by in Soccer

Liverpool were good enough to actually beat Stoke, something that doesn’t usually happen since Stoke have been promoted and become something of a regular fixture, for good and bad of the English Premier League. Luis Suarez found the net, and even Stewart Downing, with Peter Crouch scoring against his ex in between.
