  2. Liverpool provide Merseyside magic

    Kristian Walsh

    On a night like this, a night where Liverpool beat Everton 4-0, it is probably worth letting the Kop -- transformed into a carnivorous gorge of hedonism -- describe 90 minutes of Merseyside madness: Liverpool are magic. - Tyler: Three things: Live...

  3. Rodgers' dilemma over setup not a happy one

    Kristian Walsh

  4. Salah failure must not ruin plan to strengthen

    Kristian Walsh

    The parks are littered with red-faced joggers, their shorts as tight as their lungs. The wind is swirling, biting and lacerates the skin. Toys are put back in their boxes, never to be used again, their 48-hour shelf life truly over. This is January. ...

  5. Rodgers prepares for maiden third season

    Kristian Walsh

  6. Easy target Suarez isn't the only controversial person in the Pre...

    Kristian Walsh

    Football exists in its own world, a strange world, one far removed from reality. The moral code is jumbled, the traditions are odd, and the expectations are unreasonable. This is a sport where Sam Allardyce is the 13th highest-paid manager in the wor...

  7. Rodgers dealt midfield lesson in Villa draw

    Kristian Walsh

    If Brendan Rodgers is still learning while sitting in the Liverpool dugout, then consider this one of his harshest yet. If Liverpool are to be successful this season, Lucas Leiva or Joe Allen must play. This 2-2 result and performance triggered re...

  9. Sturridge return timely as Suarez reunion looms

    Kristian Walsh

    When a team has spent five years out of the Premier League's top four, an 11-day break of league competition when nestled inside it will always be welcome. Maybe nestled isn't the word. Liverpool have sat upon, teetered over and cherished fourth p...

  10. Second half subs end deja vu feeling vs. Oldham

    Kristian Walsh

    For 45 minutes, there was an unwelcome sense of deja vu on Merseyside. This may have been Anfield and not Boundary Park, and the majority who watched from the sides wore red instead of blue, but this was still a Liverpool side struggling against a de...

  11. Rare 2-0 win signals Liverpool's resilience

    Kristian Walsh

    On New Year's Day, Liverpool won 2-0. Believe it or not, it's a rare scoreline for the Merseyside club. It has been over two years -- Dec. 18, 2011, to be precise -- since those words were written. It is the first time in 107 competitive games, an...

  12. Rodgers shifts the focus after City defeat

    Kristian Walsh

    One thing cannot be overstated enough: Referee Lee Mason, of Bolton, Greater Manchester, is not a corrupt or biased official. Although his competency to referee has been questioned after his showing in Manchester City's 2-1 win over Liverpool, his in...

  13. No room for sympathy with first place at stake

    Kristian Walsh

    Of all the clubs in English football to comment on the current plight of Cardiff, Liverpool must rank among the most qualified after their three-year horror with former owners Tom Hicks and George Gillett. Though the Americans did not change the c...

  14. In praise of Brendan Rodgers

    Kristian Walsh

    Brendan Rodgers has a lot to be thankful for this Christmas. His Liverpool side are second, he manages one of the world's absolute best in Luis Suarez and he even had the honour of hearing his name sung -- loudly, with actual meaning -- around White ...

  16. Gerrard injury may prompt unfair criticism of Rodgers

    Kristian Walsh
