Time For Liverpool To Prove Nice Guys Can Finish First

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 …
Drink In Every Second Of Liverpool’s Champions League Final Build-Up

Drink In Every Second Of Liverpool’s Champions League Final Build-Up

Not every football supporter is lucky enough to have a Champions League final to look forward to. Some will never experience it. Most have already erased football from their minds, for the time being, recharging the batteries and focusing on other interests, prior to the World Cup taking over their summer. That couldn’t be further from the case with Liverpool, though. Premier League duties may be done and dusted, with the Reds nailing their pre-season objective of registering consecutive top-four …
Don't Panic... Liverpool WILL Secure a Top-Four Finish

Don't Panic... Liverpool WILL Secure a Top-Four Finish

Wasn’t that Chelsea defeat an appalling watch on every level? After the meteoric high of reaching the Champions League final later this month, the entire game felt like a drag more than anything. The sun was shining, with beer gardens, beaches and parks with our names all over them, but we had to watch the Reds battle their way through a lifeless performance. This was all to be expected of course, with the effort levels in Rome last week taking …
Liverpool’s ‘Misfits’ 90 Minutes Away From Becoming Legends

Liverpool’s ‘Misfits’ 90 Minutes Away From Becoming Legends

Liverpool are in the Champions League final. Just keep thinking about that. The Champions League final - the biggest match in club football - and Liverpool are in it, in their first season back in the competition since 2014/15. It is a genuinely staggering achievement and one that Jurgen Klopp merits endless plaudits for masterminding. But how has this been possible, considering these Liverpool players are such a bunch of frauds? What kind of sorcery is going on here? Because …
Liverpool Must Avoid Summer Repeat Of 2002, 2009 & 2014

Liverpool Must Avoid Summer Repeat Of 2002, 2009 & 2014

What do the summers of 2002, 2009 and 2014 all have in common? Liverpool ballsed up every one, that's what. On those three occasions, the Reds had a wonderful chance of kicking on after near-title-winning campaigns, only to come crashing back down to reality after recruiting poorly and allowing rivals to pull clear again. Gerard Houllier started off the trend 16 years ago, after a fantastic Arsenal team were forced to win their remaining 13 matches to clinch the Premier …
Will Mo Salah End the Messi & Ronaldo Ballon d’Or Stranglehold?

Will Mo Salah End the Messi & Ronaldo Ballon d’Or Stranglehold?

As Mo Salah sent that outrageous looping header into the Bournemouth net last weekend, you were left stunned by yet another piece of individual genius from the Egyptian King. It also clocked up a notable milestone for the 25-year-old, who took his incredible goal tally to 40 for the season, despite not even being an out-and-out striker. Only Ian Rush and Roger Hunt have achieved that feat in the past, which sums up how prolific he has been. Luis Suarez …
Dejan Lovren Silences Critics on Memorable Night in Manchester

Dejan Lovren Silences Critics on Memorable Night in Manchester

For someone who has worked his way to the top of his profession, Dejan Lovren doesn’t half receive endless abuse. He is an international footballer who plays for Liverpool, which in my eyes, makes you fairly decent at what you do for a living. I am fully aware that it's all relative, and that he should not be treated like a mere mortal who plays a bit of seven-a-side now and again, but the flack he receives is still ludicrously …
Liverpool’s Young Full-backs Produce a Performance for the Ages

Liverpool’s Young Full-backs Produce a Performance for the Ages

This time last year, imagine being told that Trent Alexander-Arnold and Andrew Robertson would be starring in a Champions League quarter-final for Liverpool. It would have felt ludicrous. The former was still an 18-year-old who had made just 10 appearances for the Reds, and a fully fit Nathaniel Clyne was a nailed-on starter. Nobody had him pencilled in to be a regular so soon. Robertson, meanwhile, was on the verge of relegation with Hull City, and despite being a rare …
How Does Klopp Juggle Liverpool’s Huge Upcoming Games?

How Does Klopp Juggle Liverpool’s Huge Upcoming Games?

The international break has been and gone, and we can all get back to enjoying proper football again. As March slowly turns to April, Liverpool’s season is alive and kicking, with the Premier League and Champions League promising some great occasions in the coming weeks. Looking at the short-term outlook over the next two weeks, the Reds have four gigantic meetings on the horizon. First, they head to Crystal Palace for a tricky test on Saturday lunchtime, before hosting Man …
What Defines Success For Liverpool FC: Trophies or Progression?

What Defines Success For Liverpool FC: Trophies or Progression?

"Winning trophies is everything in football" "Only trophies are a gauge of a team's success".
These are opinions many football supporters hold, but despite there being plenty of truth in them, there is far more to it. Seeing your team pick up silverware is hugely important, without question, and holding any title aloft should be celebrated long into the night. It instils a winning mentality in the team, and can sometimes define the careers of both individuals and …
