Classic Moment: ‘It’s up for grabs now!’ Michael Thomas wins the league for Arsenal at Anfield in the dying seconds, 1989
August 26th, 2006
The best climax to a league season ever. Amazing, shattering, dramatic – words hardly do it justice (and I’m not even a Gooner). Teams just didn’t go to Anfield in the 1980s and win 2-0. Arsenal did. This result signified the end of a remarkable era for Liverpool.
Liverpool induce snores with scrappy victory in Europe
August 23rd, 2006
I could have predicted two things before last night’s Liverpool/Maccabi Haifa match. The first being the ever reliable Clive Tyldsley saying that Peter Crouch has got ‘a good touch for a big man’ and secondly, that the match itself would be one of the dullest in history. Will the alleged title contenders please step forward?
Is Dirk Kuyt just a Dutch Iain Dowie?
August 17th, 2006
Liverpool have agreed a fee with Feyenoord for Dutch international Dirk Kuyt. That’ll piss off Newcastle, who also wanted the blonde striker. Kuyt will now undergo the usual medical and agree personal terms before completing a move believed to be worth around Â£10m. I may be proved wrong, but from what I’ve seen of Kuyt, […]

John Terry recently stated that he was convinced Liverpool would be in the race for the title. Jose Mourinho doesn’t seem to agree, thinking Man Urinal and A’nal will be the ones pushing his side all the way. He said "I still believe that Man United and Arsenal will be the biggest threat, in spite […]
Kit parade: Liverpool

Kits & fashion
Liverpool’s new Adidas home kit is launched on 10 August (pre-order it from Kitbag, if you like). It’s red and has a fancy collar, and, let’s face it, looks pretty similar to every Liverpool kit from the past decade. After all, there’s only so much you can do with an all-red strip. Stevie Gerrard looks […]
Video of Dirk Kuyt’s top 10 goals, so Liverpool fans can see what the fuss is about
July 21st, 2006
Blonde bombshell Dirk Kuyt had a lousy World Cup, so it’s understandable if Liverpool fans don’t think that much of Rafa Benitez’s interest in the Dutch striker. This video of Kuyt’s top 10 goals gives you a better idea of why he’d probably thrive in the Premiershipâ€¦
Is Craig Bellamy the most irritating player in the world?
July 19th, 2006
Well, what do you reckon? You’d have to be pretty damn irritating to outdo Lord Craig of Bellamyâ€¦ post your nominations and we’ll publish the results next week.

Scouting report: Liverpool’s new summer signings
July 7th, 2006
With all eyes on Germany, Rafa Benitez has quietly been ‘gettin’ busy’ in the transfer market. The sly dog. Let’s take a look at his new boys: Fabio Aurelio (pictured) Brazilian left-back, 27, signed on a free from Valencia (work those contacts, Rafa!). Solid defender but also good going forward and takes a mean free-kick. […]
