Shooting From The Hip: Trailblazing to Kiev

Shooting From The Hip: Trailblazing to Kiev

A team with an esteemed European history, Kiev will be Liverpool’s first final in 11 years and their eighth overall, drawing them level with Barcelona – behind only AC Milan, Bayern Munich and this year’s opponents, Real Madrid. Yet, there’s been something unique about this campaign. It’s not often you see a team utterly blitz the Champions League. Jürgen Klopp’s gung-ho philosophy has seen Liverpool score a multitude of goals this season, both domestically and in Europe with a fiery …

Forget Attack vs. Defence - Midfield Battle Holds The Key In Kiev

As the Champions League final between Liverpool and Real Madrid edges ever nearer, it is no surprise to see predictions being offered everywhere you look. When it comes to guessing how Saturday’s enormous match in Kiev will pan out, the general consensus is that it will be both sides’ vibrant attacks attempting to dismantle a couple of suspect defences. While there is definite truth in this, with the Reds and Los Blancos famed for possessing world-class attacking talent, it is …

Lascelles or Tarkowski: Who's the Better Fit?

The wheels of Liverpool’s busy summer have already begun spinning. Even as they head to a Champions League final, rumours have been rife regarding those who will arrive in the summer: The Independent’s Miguel Delaney reported that Michael Edwards has been tasked with finding a centre-half partner for Liverpool’s perceived most important signing in recent memory, Virgil van Dijk. The first two names out of the block share a nationality, and were both unfortunate to not make Gareth Southgate’s twenty-three-man …

A Champions League Final - 8000km Away From Liverpool

25th May, 2005 - I was a little kid watching my Indian neighbour get intensely excited about a game of football. The neighbour was thrilled that his team was going to be playing in the biggest club football game of the year. The little kid that I was, it gave me pleasure in trying to annoy him by supporting his team’s opponents on the night. His team was AC Milan, as they strode out on that fateful night in Istanbul. …

Time For Liverpool To Prove Nice Guys Can Finish First

Bias exists in football, there is no doubt about that. We all overly heap praise on the teams we support and the players we love, while those we dislike must do something magical to earn a similar level of adoration. One thing that has nothing to do with favouritism, however, is just what a likeable bunch of players Liverpool have nowadays. Sure, we will instantly warm to our own players more than Man United or Everton fans would, but even …

Kiev Just The Start For Klopp's Exciting Reds

For many, in fact a whole generation of Liverpool fans only slightly younger than me, the Champions League Final in Kiev could well be their biggest night of supporting Liverpool Football Club. Istanbul and the glory that it provided was 13 solid years ago, and whilst the Reds came close to winning the Premier League in 13/14 (arguably a bigger achievement than winning in Kiev this year), that never came down to a single night of football, the way that …
