Candidates for Liverpool's MOTM vs Hoffenheim

Candidates for Liverpool's MOTM vs Hoffenheim

Liverpool drew first blood in their Champions League qualifying tie against Hoffenheim with a 2-1 win, thanks to goals from Trent Alexander-Arnold & James Milner. Having opened their Premier League account unconvincingly with a 3-3 draw away at Watford on Saturday, the Reds travelled to the Rhein-Neckar Arena knowing they were up against a Hoffenheim side that had not been beaten in 459 days on their own turf. When the 22-man squad that would travel to south-western Germany was announced …

Candidates for Liverpool’s MOTM vs Watford

Liverpool were denied an opening day victory as Miguel Britos's late header shared the spoils for Watford at Vicarage Road. Much of the pre-match talk was dominated by the headlines of Philippe Coutinho, who had handed in a transfer request the Friday before the game. The general consensus was that the Reds had to put the stories regarding the Brazilian to one side as they looked to open their Premier League season with a win at Marco Silva's Watford. It …
The Reds' Midfield Conundrum

The Reds' Midfield Conundrum

With the transfer window officially opening on Saturday, it's no secret Liverpool could well be big spenders this summer. Last season's 4th placed finish did ensure that the Champions League group stages are within touching distance ahead of next season - but in equal measure, it offers plenty of scope for improvement ahead of next term. It should be another exciting year for Liverpool FC, you can get tickets for next Liverpool game here. Centre-back and left-back have been heavily touted …
Here's To You Roberto Firmino

Here's To You Roberto Firmino

With Saturday marking Roberto Firmino's two year anniversary at the club, now is the perfect time to assess how the Brazilian has fared for Liverpool since his arrival. Roberto Firmino signed for Liverpool on the 24th June 2015 from 1899 Hoffenheim, in a fee around £29m. Firmino had enjoyed categorical success in Germany - in the 2013/14 Bundesliga season he was the joint top scorer and was named the Breakthrough Player of the Season. He had become an instant fans’ …
Which Formation Should Liverpool Play Next Season?

Which Formation Should Liverpool Play Next Season?

With the dust finally settling on the 2016/17 season, it was a successful season for Liverpool, finishing in 4th place and therefore qualifying for the Champions League. The Reds thus achieved their preliminary pre-season objective of Champions League qualification, which could be classed as a good season for the Reds. However, a problem that threatened to completely derail Jurgen Klopp's side throughout the season was tactical issues. Many cited this as a potential reason for Liverpool failing to sustain their …
Liverpool Must Build on Season of Progress

Liverpool Must Build on Season of Progress

It's been a season of progress at Liverpool Football Club. Having ended the 2015/16 campaign in a disappointing 8th place, the consensus was that Jurgen Klopp had done a good job at recycling such a limited squad inherited by his predecessor, Brendan Rodgers - leading Liverpool to both the League Cup & Europa League final respectively in the space of seven months. The real challenge for Klopp was to transform a distinctly unimpressive side into top 4, and possibly, title …

Candidates for Liverpool's MOTM vs Middlesbrough

Liverpool capped off a successful campaign with a 3-0 home win over relegated Middlesbrough, confirming Liverpool's place in the Champions League qualifiers. Before kick-off, Reds fans greeted the team bus with a voiceforous welcome - it brought back memories of last season when flares billowed through Anfield's Shankly Gate. The atmosphere was deafening inside Anfield too, as the hosts took to the pitch in their slick and contemporary new kit. Nerves were jangling at Anfield though inside the first 40 minutes, …
Candidates for Liverpool's MOTM vs West Ham

Candidates for Liverpool's MOTM vs West Ham

Liverpool took one step closer to Champions League qualification for next season with a convincing 4-0 victory away at West Ham. The Reds went into this game knowing they simply had to win their remaining two games against the Hammers and already relegated Middlesbrough to seal Champions League qualification - but it wasn't to be easy against an in form West Ham side. They had kept three consecutive home clean sheets for the first time since 2010 - and with …
Klopp's Tactical Ineptitude Costs Liverpool

Klopp's Tactical Ineptitude Costs Liverpool

Liverpool were presented with the opportunity to consolidate their stranglehold on top 4 when Southampton came to Anfield - a win would've taken the Reds ahead of Manchester City in 3rd, but instead Liverpool produced a dire performance which saw a blow in their hopes for Champions League football next term. Before kick off, a lot of supporters were saying how a win here would be a huge statement of intent as it would be a mental and tactical block …

Candidates For Liverpool's MOTM Against Watford

Liverpool edged one huge step closer to qualification for the Champions League proper next term with a hard-fought 1-0 away win at Watford. Emre Can scored the solitary goal that separated the two sides - and I really cannot quite put the strike from the German into comprehensible words. In what was a first half deprived of any clear-cut opportunities (bar Lallana's strike which looped onto the post), Can sent the whole football sphere into stunned silence when his acrobatic scissor-kick …
