Return to Selhurst brings back painful memories of Liverpool's title collapse

Liverpool's Adam Lallana says the team need to score more goals, following Daniel Sturridge's injury.

Liverpool could not exorcise their Chelsea demons two weeks ago as they suffered another Anfield defeat against the Londoners, six months after the far more damaging reversal in April. It would be nice to think they'll have better luck with the ghosts of Selhurst Park on Sunday but the current mood suggests otherwise.

The coincidence of facing Crystal Palace in the very next match after losing at home to Jose Mourinho's runaway leaders is a painful one. Palace usually brings back memories of the...

Liverpool's Jordan Henderson recalls a day to forget vs. Crystal Palace

The photos of Luis Suarez crying after the match were hard to look at and even harder to miss after Liverpool's calamitous 3-3 draw with Crystal Palace on May 5, 2014.

It was the day a dream died, the place where memories of the worst kind were made. Selhurst Park, May 5. Jordan Henderson won't forget. The scars have not healed. They never will. Football's capacity to deliver ecstasy and agony was compressed into the space of an extraordinary second half. Luis Suarez went from scoring to crying as the Premier League crown Liverpool had longed for first seemed tantalisingly close, only to be decisively removed from their grasp by a 9-minute capitulation.

Sort it out, Reds: 5 things Brendan Rodgers & company must get right

ESPN FC'S Gabriele Marcotti gives his take on Brendan Rodgers and Liverpool's notable transfers over the past two seasons.

After a poor start to the season, news of Daniel Sturridge's latest injury knocked everyone at Liverpool back down to earth with a fearsome bump.

Every significant Liverpool title challenge since they last won the league in 1990 was followed by a year of seismic disappointment, often resulting in the departure of the manager that almost climbed to the summit. It's fair to say it's never been as disappointing as this current campaign.

Brendan Rodgers is looking for a quick fix that wins points and...

Sturridge is too injury prone and Reds have made a mess of life after Suarez

ESPN FC's Steve Nicol reacts to the injury Daniel Sturridge suffered in training for Liverpool and explains he is not surprised due to his already injury-laden career.

I wrote something on Tuesday regarding Daniel Sturridge's impending return and what it meant for Liverpool. I went into a fair amount of detail on how his return to the lineup could transform the struggling Reds and breathe new life into some of his teammates who have suffered from his absence.

But just when we thought he was back, news of Sturridge's latest injury emerged, leaving Liverpool facing the cold reality that they can no longer count on him.

Incredibly, this is the third time in as many...

Return of the Raf? Benitez favourite to replace Anfield boss Brendan Rodgers

Giovanni Trapattoni could make his return to football as manager of Greece.
Rafa Benitez has been named favourite to replace Brendan Rodgers at Liverpool.

Will Transfer Talk ever run out of rumours for the thirsty transfer minions? Not likely judging from this latest roundup of bits from all about Europe.

Return of the Raf?

After a less-than-spectacular start to the season, the first signs that Brendan Rodgers may losing his grip on the Liverpool top job might just be starting to show.

The Mirror reports that, for the first time in five years, a top English-based betting agency have quoted odds on the next Liverpool manager -- with former Reds boss...

Scottish football at the heart of Liverpool's DNA

Bill Shankly, arguably Liverpool's greatest manager ever, is just one of a selection of Scotsmen whose influence is still felt today at Anfield.

When Scotland play England in Tuesday's "friendly" international, there will be little that's friendly about it. Liverpool fans of a certain vintage, however, will harken back nostalgically to a time when the Reds and the Scots were inextricably linked.

A third of England's side may be made up of Brendan Rodgers' players while he supplies none for the Scots. In the days when Liverpool were the dominant force of football, the situation was reversed.

Scottish players and managers are a strong part...
