About This Is Analysis

This Is Anfield. This Is Analysis.

I am using this iconic sign for a reason. Telling a story.

The “This Is Anfield” sign has so many stories to tell from ur players, managers, even our opponents. I am sure even you will have a story to tell about this symbol. Maybe you had one in your bedroom as a kid? Maybe you still do.

I want to tell my own stories, the story of Liverpool, through the eyes of an Analyst. That doesn’t always means stats and figures, although they do help, it is about an indepth understanding of how Liverpool play and where they can improve.

You don’t have to be an analyst to join in. You simply have to be a football fan.

Welcome to Analysis. This is Analysis.

About Neal Cross – @barneystuta

May 25th 2005. Do I need to say anymore?

My name is Neal Cross and I am a Liverpool fan. What more can I say?

I am a regular match go-er and watched us play from our home Anfield, to the Bernabau and Bucharest. I have seen it all. The good and the bad (the oh so, very bad at times).

I have been writing on and off about Liverpool since 2010. It started on football forums, it then moved to statistical blogs, now I am here. Following somewhat of a hiatus, I am back.

As you can tell from my picture, I am a bit mad, especially when it comes to Liverpool. The reason I love that picture so much is largely because of the pure emotion. That picture was captured just after we scored our 3rd goal in Istanbul. You know the story, I don’t need to remind you.

In my day job I also have a keen eye for analysis and attention to detail, so you may find some business practice references in my articles. I also love a problem, I love a damn good problem, Liverpool often has their fair share of those.

I hope you enjoy reading my articles and I would love to engage with all football fans, not just Liverpool. In recent years the Football Blogging community has boomed and I hope I can add something to the discussion, while having a laugh along the way.
