    FA Cup 2013-14 Rnd 5 – Arsenal (A)

    By Chris Rowland. Even those who want us to take the FA Cup seriously – and crucially that seems to include the manager and definitely the players (after last night’s win, Jordan Henderson said “We’re delighted with the result and now we need to recover and get ready for the FA Cup tie at Arsenal [...]

    Book Review: The Anatomy of Liverpool

    Book Review: The Anatomy of Liverpool

    By Chris Rowland. With Jonathan Wilson, author of ‘Inverting the Pyramid’ being one of our favourite football writers, this book was always going to be one worth checking out. And it is indeed pretty much compulsory reading for Reds fans. Subtitled “A History in Ten Matches” and with a by-line that says “Jonathan Wilson with [...]

    The Day Shankly Arrived

    The Day Shankly Arrived

    By Chris Rowland. There are many significant dates in Liverpool FC’s history. 1892. May 25th – 1977 and 2005. Oct 13th 2010 – the date Hicks and Gillett were ousted in court, with Lord Grabiner QC and Justice Floyd both playing a blinder. Let me add another, maybe the most significant of them all – [...]

The author, a red from Norway north of the Arctic Circle – cue predictable joke from Evertonians – is a radio host, journalist, blogger (aren’t the last two pretty indistinguishable these days?) and writer. This, her second official club book following Liverpool Hearts’ in 2010, was [...]

The Daily Mirror’s infatuation with any anti-Liverpool slant they can find under any creaky old floorboard (Aug 19) put it thusly: Spurs are trying to hijack Liverpool’s bid to capture Brazilian playmaker Willian. The Reds have [...]

Well we could be excused a spot of Toransclusspanik this week, with alleged transfer targets disappearing faster than Wayne Rooney’s popularity. Following the Henry Mac near-miss and our apparent failure to lure Shaqiri from the reigning [...]

    “Belgium’s Belgium’s Number 1″ …

    By Chris Rowland. The TTT spotlight now turns towards Belgium’s shot stopper (I now speak fluent transfer jargon) after his £9m transfer from Sunderland. Chelsea’s Thibaut Courtois, on loan at Atletico Madrid, may be Belgium’s first choice but we know what the Kop’s chant will be. Let’s put his career under the microscope. This article is for Subscribers [...]
