Observations from an easy Liverpool win in Slovenia

Observations from an easy Liverpool win in Slovenia

Ah, that was nice, wasn't it? When was the last time Liverpool played and nails weren't being bitten in the minutes leading up to full-time? It was just one of those nights in Slovenia as the Reds (Weird Oranges?) put seven past a sorry Maribor. The nails were being bitten for about four minutes. Once Bobby Firmino put Liverpool up by a goal, there was really only one way the match was heading. One more goal from Firmino, a couple …

Observations as Liverpool can't finish off Moscow in the Champions League

How did Liverpool not win that? Nobody will know. A tennis score would not have been an unjust reflection of play in Moscow, but in the end, Liverpool and Spartak Moscow had to share the points as the Reds failed to make their superiority count. Philippe Coutinho cancelled out Fernando's free-kick that gave Spartak the lead, but the Reds could see this game as one where it got away, at the end of the group stages. Here are some major …

Observations from Liverpool's disappointing Cup exit at Leicester

Liverpool crashed out of the League Cup with a 2-0 defeat against Leicester City at the King Power Stadium. The Reds dominated large parts of the game, but their wastefulness in front of goal was punished.

Why bigger challenges than Hoffenheim lie ahead for Emre Can

Why bigger challenges than Hoffenheim lie ahead for Emre Can

Okay, first things first. Liverpool Football Club have got to tie Emre Can down with a new deal ASAP. There is no two ways about that. From the potential that Can has shown, it is clear that he has it in him to become a superstar midfielder.

Liverpool v Arsenal Preview - Key Battles

Liverpool are back in the Champions League proper. The draw for the group stages could have been far worse than it has ended up being, but for now, that doesn't matter.
