Liverpool: Lost points always sting

Liverpool’s run of back luck continued on Sunday. One of the world’s best keepers clutched and stabbed at the ball but only succeeded in deflecting it back into his own goal. In the 90th minute. After his side had fought valiantly down to 10 — and sometimes 9 — men.…

Interview: nate from Oh You Beauty, part deux

Boy, Thursday came and went, dinnit? I blame my staycation, which has sapped my Kuyt-esque work ethic and left me a Diet-Coked-up FIFA 10 addict. But enough about me, let’s get back to the insights of Liverpool’s least hated American associate, nate! Last time, we talked about the World Cup…

Interview: nate from Oh You Beauty talks footy

With the World Cup in full swing, it’s easy to forget that, as soon as it’s over, we’ll be thrust back into the cold, uncaring world of club football. Okay, okay, maybe it’s not that bad for most of you, but I’m a Liverpool fan, so, yeah, it’s that bad.…

The ‘Asking Questions’ Frame (or How I Learned to Stop Hating on Soccer and Enjoy a Good 0-0)

Ever find yourself frustrated by the lack of scoring in a game? Ever struggle to share your joy of the game with American cohorts? Maybe this will help. Prior to the Germans casting off their tradition of dourly efficient footy and gallivanting about like a coked-up Barcelona, none of the…

My season was, uh, memorable; how was yours?

Let’s see…. debts ballooned to £350m. Steven Gerrard played like someone peed in his Cheerios. Every morning. Fernando Torres missed another half-season with another injury, only this time he started to figure out that playing as a lone striker in the down-and-dirty EPL might be why it feels like crowbars…

Liverpool identity crisis strikes again

Fiorentina 2-0 Liverpool. The result is hard to think about, much less talk about. Given the chance to build their confidence against bad teams the last few weeks, Liverpool did so in style. Given the chance to capitalize on that confidence against a tough opponent, Liverpool shat themselves. After the…

While watching Leeds-Liverpool in the Carling Cup…

The Liverpool squad battling Leeds features Argentina’s captain and world class players for Spain and the Netherlands, and that doesn’t include a starter who’s rumored to be very good (Jaimie Carragher). Yet they are clearly getting outplayed by a League 1 outfit through 55 minutes, particularly in terms of pace.…

Liverpool’s Zonal Marking

On the topic of Liverpool’s (lack of?) defensive prowess: Rafa continues to defend his zone marking scheme on set pieces. Considering that Liverpool is a weak aerial defensive team, wouldn’t man marking make more sense? In man marking defenders can make up for their lack of height by bodying up…

Benitez needs to shake things up

Stoney’s right — it both is and isn’t time to panic. Right now, Liverpool look like a shaky mess, not a team that can compete for titles. But for every problem, there’s a solution. Here’s the formula for a Liverpool turnaround. The Problems 1) The Lucas Leiva Implosion. Awesome jam…

Is it time for Liverpool to panic?

Yes and no Last year Liverpool only lost two league games and finished second. This year the league is much more open, and I think the winner will finish with less than last year’s total of 90. I don’t think though that the game on Monday was a reason to…
