LIVERPOOL FC AND SUBSIDENCE

SUBSIDENCE is a peculiar concept. It doesn’t necessarily have to be a bad thing either. Has your anger subsided yet? A lot of Liverpool fans got angry about the way last season tailed off. A lot of Liverpool fans got angry that FSG didn’t sack Brendan Rodgers and...

LIVERPOOL: KEEP YOUR COOL THIS SUMMER

IT’S going to be a long summer. Hell hath no fury like a Liverpool fan scorned. Hell hath no fury like a Liverpool fan yet to be scorned, but expecting to be scorned. At times hell even hath no fury like a Liverpool fan faced with the rumoured arrival of a James...
JUST THE TICKET: FIVE FAVOURITE LIVERPOOL STUBS #3

JUST THE TICKET: FIVE FAVOURITE LIVERPOOL STUBS #3

WE’VE asked some of The Anfield Wrap’s regular contributors to crawl around the loft and look under the bed to dig out some of their most treasured ticket stubs and tell us the tales behind them. Third with his favourite five is STEVEN SCRAGG. My Liverpool-watching...
LIVERPOOL: STEVEN GERRARD AND THE BLAME GAME

LIVERPOOL: STEVEN GERRARD AND THE BLAME GAME

THERE has been a lot of conjecture over what went wrong. I think it was more a question of what didn’t go right. Similar, but a subtle difference. Liverpool’s first league defeat in over four months does not mean the wheels automatically come off. But no-one does...
LIVERPOOL: AND THEN THEY’RE GONNA BELIEVE US

LIVERPOOL: AND THEN THEY’RE GONNA BELIEVE US

GIVEN the fact Liverpool doesn’t operate the open cheque book policy Manchester City has enjoyed and profited from in recent years, the club should really be light years behind the boys in blue. They’re not. Instead, Liverpool Football Club is breathing heavily...
LIVERPOOL: THE BEST THREE POINTS OF THE SEASON?

LIVERPOOL: THE BEST THREE POINTS OF THE SEASON?

SIMON Mignolet almost handled the ball outside his penalty area against Southampton. If you’d suggested such a thing a few weeks ago then you’d have been laughed out of town. One of the most enjoyable things about being a Liverpool supporter for me is the concept of...
FA CUP: LIVERPOOL’S GHOSTS ARE BACK

FA CUP: LIVERPOOL’S GHOSTS ARE BACK

I WAS OK about this whole Crystal Palace thing until flicking through Twitter this morning. Then I started to get uncomfortable and began shifting uneasily in my seat. Namely this: A gnome, Tenerife, breaking into a school and beef chow mein: the story of Palace 4-3...
LIVERPOOL: STILL TIME TO SAVE OUR SEASON

LIVERPOOL: STILL TIME TO SAVE OUR SEASON

IT’S never too late. Well not at the start of February. Football is just a mirror vision of life in general really; defeat can be snatched from the jaws of glory as easily as a hopeless cause can be rescued from the precipice. There will be ups and there will be...
FA CUP: KICK OFF ABOUT KICK OFFS BUT IT’S STILL WORTH IT

FA CUP: KICK OFF ABOUT KICK OFFS BUT IT’S STILL WORTH IT

I actually qualified for a ticket for the AFC Wimbledon game in the third round when just 825 of us got the chance to go. The only problem being I couldn’t go. Apparently my mate Sue had a fantastic time. I still have a picture of ‘my ticket’ somewhere on...
STEVEN GERRARD: TA-RA TO THE TALISMAN

STEVEN GERRARD: TA-RA TO THE TALISMAN

TALISMANIC figure. I’ve always hated that phrase. Steven Gerrard has been a talismanic figure for a decade and a half in a Liverpool shirt — I always wanted so much more for him than to be just a talismanic figure. Liverpool FC became a football club that...
