The Scouser Report – Wolves vs Liverpool

After a winter of discontent, things may be looking up for the Red men of Merseyside. Last week, I said that their progress should not be measured by their approach to big games, against the likes of Chelsea, Man United or Everton, but on how they follow up against the lesser sides. Today, Liverpool followed … Read more

The Scouser Report – Liverpool vs Everton, The Big One!

Wednesday, 25th May 1985 is a date that will hold significance with many Everton fans – it is the last time that they did the double over their neighbours across Stanley Park. Sunday almost saw that wait come to an end, with Everton turning around a trailing position of one-nil at half time to a two-one … Read more

The Scouser Report – Kenny’s Back, But Liverpool’s Miracle May Have To Wait

If you believed the return of King Kenny heralded an immediate about-face in Liverpool’s fortunes, the early returns must be testing your faith.  Of the two matches over which Dalglish has presided, there is no question that the performance at Old Trafford was of a markedly higher standard than the visit to Bloomfield Road in … Read more

The Scouser Report – Manchester United vs Liverpool

Manchester United at Old Trafford, especially in the Third Round of the FA Cup, was always going to be a big ask, considering the level of performance that has been witnessed away from Anfield this season.

The Scouser Report – Could Liverpool Really Be Relegation Fodder?

It’s difficult to be positive when you have just watched your side lose 1-0 at home to the, supposedly, worst side in the league, if, as they say, the table doesn’t lie. It’s even harder when you have to accept that Wolves did not fluke the result but, just the opposite, they, and Liverpool both … Read more

The Scouser Report – Another False Dawn for Liverpool

International friendlies; what exactly is the point? Oh yes, money. How silly of me! I am quite sure it has not escaped your attention, unless of course you’re a deaf, blind and mute or Tom Hicks (but I repeat myself), that Anfield’s favourite son has returned from international duty crocked. Personally, I hate international friendlies. … Read more

The Scouser Report – Wigan Athletic vs Liverpool

I wonder, does anybody know the significance of the 26th September, 2009? Well, I do. It’s the last time that Liverpool Football Club won three consecutive games in the Premier League. Surprising stuff! Interestingly, the 6-1 hammering of Hull City, which took place whilst I sat in one of my favourite jaunts in Rome, chomping on … Read more

The Scouser Report – Liverpool vs Chelsea

Just a couple of weeks ago, Roy Hodgson and his Liverpool side were very much in ‘must win’ territory. After a disastrous start, poor results against Bolton Wanderers and Blackburn Rovers would have left the Reds in an extremely precarious position going into the match this weekend against Chelsea. Thankfully, Liverpool have chalked up three … Read more
