Mindless Games and Burning Ambition

As we get towards the concluding and decisive matches of the season, Jose Mourinho is busy with his tiresome Machiavellian machinations whilst Brendan Rodgers seems content with his lot.

It's All About the Group

Lucas Leiva has had more than his share of adversity to overcome but as this spirit shocking campaign enters its final three games the midfielder is back in first team contention and enthused by the "togetherness, character and quality" in the group.

Sterling Will "Fight and Hustle"

After making a huge initial impact Raheem Sterling took a step back as young players are wont to do but now, stronger and with more focus, the youngster is a key man as Liverpool continue to edge towards something truly momentous.

Winning With "Class"

Brendan Rodgers is a man of character who takes pride in the fact that Liverpool's place atop the Premier League has been attained whilst also leading the Fair Play equivalent. He believes there is a right way to win. We, mostly, just want to win.

The Long Road to Justice for the 96

25 years after the tragedy of Hillsborough, the loss is still felt keenly by the families of the 96 and the wider community. As the city remembers its lost sons and daughters, some two and a half decades later, justice may finally be imminent.

Rodgers: "Loving Every Minute"

Novel it may be, but Brendan Rodgers is relishing his team's title challenge for all it's worth and he's paid tribute to the staff that have helped his team perform at the high level they have maintained thus far.

Sakho's "Levels of Fury" to Benefit Liverpool

Mamadou Sakho's reintroduction to the Liverpool first team has come at a time when the Frenchman's fierce passion to win might be of most benefit to his club and in Brendan Rodgers he believes he has a coach of real "charisma."

Skrtel et al Staying Resolute

Liverpool's defence is acquiring a solidity and resoluteness at just the right part of the season after spending long parts of it looking less than watertight. Martin Skrtel has been the ever-present, leading by example after his own travails.

Gerrard: "Nothing Has Been Achieved Yet"

For Liverpool's peerless captain, Steven Gerrard, the proximity of the ultimate success is admittedly distracting but his years of experience, which have shown to telling effect on the pitch, are keeping his focus resolutely on the next game only.

Love, Hate and Everything in Between

So many sentiments have jostled for space in our overwrought hearts this season. Fortuitously, most of them have been of the deliriously positive variety but the usual suspects have inspired the full gamut of feelings. It's been emotional.

Win Just One For The Skipper

Liverpool's Daniel Sturridge is having the season of his career and despite his youthful passion for WWE, it was vintage Hollywood that the England striker evoked with his emotive talk of winning one for the skipper.

"No Pressure," Insists Allen

The nervous tension amongst fans is ineluctable but we wouldn't have it any other way. Brendan Rodgers has done his bit to calm the anxieties of the Anfield faithful. Now Joe Allen insists the players are calm and confident going into the Spurs match

Rodgers: "We're Always Looking Ahead"

Brendan Rodgers is presiding over a Liverpool side one point off the summit with seven games remaining and as he urges "calmness" amongst his own players, he has pointed to the "expectancy" that rivals must cope with.

The Smart Move

Jordan Henderson credits Brendan Rodgers with instilling in him the tactical intelligence that has made him such a vital cog in a team led by Steven Gerrard, who the manager believes will be clever enough to negotiate the yellow card tightrope ahead.

I Love You, Man

There's a palpable levity in the atmosphere around Melwood these days thanks to an unprecedented points haul and the fact that Brendan Rodgers' men are legitimate title contenders. Here's a look behind the scenes, as the season draws to a close.

Gerrard "Blown Away" by Rodgers' Sessions

Having been at the club since he was a young stripling, Steven Gerrard is well placed to assess the quality of training and coaching and he is massively enthused by the standard of the work being done by Brendan Rodgers and his staff.

Rodgers on Money & Success

No amount of money insouciantly lavished on a team can manufacture the kind of spirit, clarity of purpose and cohesion that Brendan Rodgers has built at Liverpool for comparatively modest amounts. That's a tribute to both the manager and his players.

Flanagan: "Momentum is Building"

Victory against Manchester United at Old Trafford finally convinced many that the dream of the title is one that's worth embracing and Jon Flanagan, part of Brendan Rodgers' Redmen Renaissance, feels that Liverpool "can do it." Yes, indeed.

Demanding More


As the Manchester United game draws ever closer, talk of the season's potential is unavoidable. The players and the manager, however, remain 'demanding' of each other and the 'intensity' of the training has not waned, despite the gap in fixtures.

Lucas Has a Dream

When Lucas Leiva got injured in mid January he must have feared his campaign might be over, but he has recovered to rejoin the squad for the biggest ten games in Liverpool's recent history with a dream of getting into Brazil's World Cup squad.

"A Phenomenal Player"

Amidst all the furore about Luis Suarez, there can be a tendency to overlook the frankly stunning contribution that Daniel Sturridge has made to Liverpool's season to date. Club legends Steven Gerrard and Robbie Fowler acknowledged his efforts.

Allen Advocates "Aggressive Stance"

Joe Allen and his Liverpool teammates have surpassed expectations thus far this season, playing a style of football which is as much about their determination to regain the ball as it is about their brilliance in possession.

The Instinctive Brilliance of Luis Suarez

Luis Suarez is in the middle of the kind of season that can make a footballer immortal in the eyes of adoring fans. The striker is a force of nature who allows "instinct" to rule him on the pitch. The results can be jaw-droppingly stunning.

Johnson: Rodgers is "One of the Best"

Glen Johnson is a man who's had his travails of late as he fought injury and loss of form but he insists he is impressed with his manager, Brendan Rodgers, whose man management he rates as "definitely better" than Jose Mourinho's.

Gerrard and Hodgson Happy With Peters

Steven Gerrard and his Liverpool colleagues have famously been consulting the highly respected psychiatrist, Dr. Steve Peters, in an effort to improve their mentality. Now they are working together at international level alongside Roy Hodgson.

Gerrard Credits Suarez and Rodgers

After a massively significant away win at St. Mary's when the pressure was on, Steven Gerrard hailed the "genius" of his teammate, Luis Suarez, and lauded Brendan Rodgers for fostering a feeling of "togetherness" in the dressing room.

Rodgers and Hodgson Praise Sterling

After his stellar introduction to the Liverpool first team last season, Raheem Sterling understandably faded a little. This campaign he has added strength and maturity to his trickery and garnered praise from his managers for club and country.

Going the Extra Mile

Jordan Henderson and Luis Suarez are emblematic of the current Liverpool side's hunger for victory. As a unit, the team has the will to win by the odd goal in seven but much of that is driven by the impetus provided by these two remarkable athletes.

Video: Joe Allen vs Swansea

With a frankly remarkable cameo in the crazy 4-3 win over Swansea, Joe Allen appeared to reassert his first team claims somewhat forcefully.

One Game at a Time

It's an age-old mantra at Liverpool Football Club and reflects a cautious, humble and sensibly circumspect attitude to what may be possible, but Brendan Rodgers and his men are very publicly taking each game as it comes.
