    How Was Their Season? No.15 – Christian Benteke

    How Was Their Season? No.15 – Christian Benteke

    By Chris Rowland. There was once a Liverpool striker who was a magnificent physical specimen. A beast no defender would be able to bully. In fact the reverse would seem more likely. He could shrug them aside as if swatting a fly. Trouble was, his mental approach didn’t match his physique. A timid boy trapped in a man’s body. A tiger […]

    How Was Their Season? No 5: Lucas Leiva

    Basel and the Road Less Travelled

    Basel and the Road Less Travelled

    By Chris Rowland. As endurance tests go, I couldn’t have devised a more testing one for myself. The problem with European finals is that travel and accommodation prices just disappear into the stratosphere the minute your team qualifies from the semi -final, or they are simply no longer available. You really have to have all […]

    Liverpool FC and the January Transfer Window

    Liverpool FC and the January Transfer Window

    By Chris Rowland. ‘You can’t get value in the January transfer market’. It’s a Quoted Football Fact. Like 4-4-2 is attacking/brave (and let’s face it a bit British), fancy foreign zonal marking isn’t as good as good old British man-to-man and foreign players go down too easily, it’s parroted ad nauseam by pundits, commentators and […]

    Three Free Men and a £Million Teenager

    by Chris Rowland. So it looks like we’re getting our transfer business done quickly, early and decisively. Since this initial flurry we’ve added Firmino and look set to conclude three more deals, with Benteke, Augustinsson and Adinkanye. Meanwhile Gerrard, Johnson, Jones, Aspas and Coates have all departed, and there may be several others yet to […]

    Heysel – 30 Years Of Hurt

    By Chris Rowland. 30 years ago today, Liverpool and Juventus met in the European Cup final in Brussels. It was our fifth European Cup final in nine years, having won the first four. 39 people died in the Heysel Stadium when a wall collapsed following fighting on the terraces.

    A Season to Remember – 1987/8

    By Chris Rowland. The Reds team that had been good enough to win the double in 1985/6 had not been good enough to resist Everton’s challenge the following season, finishing 2nd but nine points behind, as the Merseyside domination of the league in the ‘80s continued – the title remained there for seven consecutive seasons […]

    A Season to Remember – 1985/6

    By Chris Rowland. No season had ever started in circumstances like this one. For any club. For the first season since Liverpool’s debut in 1964/5, there was no European football, as 21 consecutive seasons of involvement came to an end following the post-Heysel ban. For the first time in the club’s history, a player-manager was […]

    By Chris Rowland. After being part of the Anfield fabric since 1958 and a largely unsuccessful player for his hometown club even before that, in the summer of 1983 Joe Fagan finally stepped up to the top job after Bob Paisley called an end to his unprecedented and unmatched period of success. If Bob Paisley had […]

    By Chris Rowland. Younger LFC fans, those who’ve had to endure Man Utd’s 1999 treble being force-fed down their gullets like foie gras geese, may not appreciate just how close we came to achieving that same treble in 1977. And, in a gruesomely savage turn of the universal grinding wheel, that it was Utd themselves […]

And by claiming not one but two, repeating Shankly’s League title/UEFA Cup double of 1972/3 (link), he started gathering trophies in the almost obsessively acquisitive […]

After the euphoria of the early/mid 1960s – promotion, within two seasons the title, the next season the club’s first FA Cup, the next season the title again and the first European final (the European Cup Winners’ Cup, lost 2-1 to Borussia Dortmund at Hampden Park) – Liverpool entered a spell of […]
