Ruthlessness Key As Liverpool Face Arch-Rivals

Ruthlessness Key As Liverpool Face Arch-Rivals

Whisper it quietly, but Liverpool have actually played very well in general so far this season, regardless of the current narrative surrounding the Reds. Too many people judge a team’s success and form solely on results, but that can cloud the wider picture. If you actually scan through Liverpool’s 12 matches in 2017/18 to date, there aren’t many when you can accuse them of under-performing. Watford was a limp display back in August, as was their last outing at Newcastle, …
Beating United Is Everything For A Southern Liverpool Fan

Beating United Is Everything For A Southern Liverpool Fan

I’ll warn you, this is a bit of a sob story and I am absolutely looking for sympathy. As a “southern softie”, what more do you expect? When it comes to being a Liverpool supporter from the south of England, I can assure you that the hour or so after losing to Man United is one of the most hideous as a Red. I’m sure it’s pretty grim for you too, wherever you are in the world, but I’m feeling …
Roberto Firmino Threatening To Silence His Admirers

Roberto Firmino Threatening To Silence His Admirers

Roberto Firmino is a wonderful footballer - let’s start off by acknowledging that. After a slow start to life at Liverpool, due mainly to Brendan Rodgers expecting him to shine as a right winger, the Brazilian has become a key figure. The 4-1 win away to Man City in November 2015 was the first time we saw exactly what he can offer, both on and off the ball, and he has thrilled us ever since. To many, he is the …
Daniel Sturridge: Past His Best But Badly Misunderstood

Daniel Sturridge: Past His Best But Badly Misunderstood

That 1-1 draw at Newcastle on Sunday was infuriating enough, but talkSPORT then decided to spout their usual bile. I say talkSPORT, but in this case it was an individual - Mr Deadline Day himself, Jim White, who presents a morning show on the station during the week. Taking to his twitter account on Monday, White asked the question:
"Talking Daniel Sturridge @talkSPORT right now! Is his attitude holding him back and is his time @LFC coming to an …
Perfection Or Nothing For Klopp's Frustrating Liverpool

Perfection Or Nothing For Klopp's Frustrating Liverpool

This is a bold, hyperbolic statement, but one I believe is becoming truer by the week: No team has ever had to work harder to win games than this Liverpool side. Tuesday’s 1-1 draw away to Spartak Moscow was the perfect example of this, with the Reds once again outplaying an opponent but walking away without three points. They huffed and puffed all evening, playing inventive football and creating endless chances, but a combination of wretched finishing and another sloppy …
Woeful Finishing Costs Liverpool Yet Again

Woeful Finishing Costs Liverpool Yet Again

There was a moment in the final stages of Liverpool’s 1-1 draw at Spartak Moscow when you could virtually feel Reds supporters all over the world lose their heads in unison. Roberto Firmino, off the pace all night, was picked out by a lovely Alberto Moreno pass, and needed to just play a simply pass across the box for Mo Salah or Daniel Sturridge to tap in. As was in-keeping with the night as a whole, however, the Brazilian’s lazy …
Return Of Under-Appreciated Lallana Key For Liverpool

Return Of Under-Appreciated Lallana Key For Liverpool

The brilliance of this Liverpool team is its attack, with Jurgen Klopp a naturally positive manager who thrives off his players performing with fluency and freedom. The Reds’ defending may have left plenty to be desired under the charismatic German, but his side have produced some truly great attacking performances in the two years since he took charge. One man who has often been a catalyst in these displays, and everything good about Liverpool’s relentless style, is Adam Lallana. The …

The "Klopp Out" Brigade: An Embarrassment To Liverpool's Fanbase

If you want Jurgen Klopp to be sacked as Liverpool manager, you are talking complete nonsense and are everything wrong with modern football. It really is that simple. Opinions are part of what makes being a football fan so much fun, but when people spout knee-jerk bile for the sake of it, it becomes irrelevant. All it shows is that they clearly don’t understand the game, and that they will only ever be happy with the Reds if they win …
Mo Salah: Liverpool’s New Dirk Kuyt, With A Twist

Mo Salah: Liverpool’s New Dirk Kuyt, With A Twist

On the face of it, comparing Mo Salah and Dirk Kurt is the equivalent of saying Breaking Bad and Game Of Thrones are similar TV shows. Kuyt is someone who got the very best out of his ability throughout an admirable career, occasionally resembling a pub player during an off day. Salah, meanwhile, is a player who oozes quality and natural talent, and possesses the kind of pace that most of us can only dream of. He is aesthetically-pleasing - …
Liverpool Need To Shore Up The Defence Or Win Nothing

Liverpool Need To Shore Up The Defence Or Win Nothing

The dust may have settled after Liverpool’s 2-2 draw with Sevilla, but the fume is still very much alive and well. Another slick attacking display was ruined by defensive incompetence, with the La Liga outfit scoring with both shots on target at Anfield. How many times does that seem to happen these days? Whether it be Dejan Lovren continuing to alienate himself from the fanbase, Jordan Henderson not protecting the back-line or Emre Can proving to be erratic - this …
