6 questions Liverpool will need to answer ahead of the 2015/16 season

Liverpool FC gets ready for a challenging season ahead For Liverpool Football Club, last season (2014-15) started and ended on a hugely disappointing note. More disappointing if you were still hung-over from a season before that when Suarez and Sturridge were hammering the opponents. Let’s accept it, these 2 made Liverpool look better than they were in totality. I say they made Liverpool look “better than they were” becau

10 talented players who were too stubborn to succeed

Talent alone can only get you so far, because without the right attitude and the determination to succeed even the most talented players can falter and lose their way. Take for example the case of Ronaldinho, who is labeled one of the greatest players of recent times. Even though Ronaldinho was successful, the Brazilian was infamous for his poor off the field antics and lifestyle which garnered heavy criticism. If the Brazilian could have focu

Open Letter to Brendan Rodgers from a Liverpool Fan

Brendan Rodgers must pay the price for his managerial blunders Dear Brendan, Let me be honest with you. Never did I think it would happen this soon, yet it has. We need to BREAK-UP (There I said it and it feels nice). No, the 6-1 demolition at the hands of the Potters on the final day of the season has not caused this knee-jerk reaction. It was just the tipping point. It’s the malaise that has spread over the past year that frighten

Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers Liverpool failed to find the back of the net at the KC Stadium on Tuesday evening as Brendan Rodgers' side were defeated 1-0. Steve Bruce was elated with his side's performance as the Tigers aim to steer clear of relegation.
