Sturridge's New Creative Role?

Sturridge's New Creative Role?

Daniel Sturridge has been up against it since his move to Chelsea. He's had to prove he isn't a money grabber after leaving Manchester City to join Chelsea. He's had to prove he doesn't have a 'poor attitude'. He's had to prove to the masses that he isn't lazy; and that accusation in itself is lazy. He's had to convince people that he's worth the wait and the hassle, despite many injuries restricting him to limited appearances since his move …
Alberto Moreno: Liverpool’s Scapegoat

Alberto Moreno: Liverpool’s Scapegoat

You could argue that Alberto Moreno is the most unpopular Liverpool player this year, and has become the scapegoat of the season. Twitter explodes like a volcanic eruption after every match lost, drawn, or even won. The Spaniard, who arrived in the summer of the 15/16 season from Sevilla has been consistently criticised for his “inability” to defend. He’s been criticised for leaving acres of space behind him when he bursts forward and joins the attack, but he has never …
5 Defining Moments From the Reds' 2015/16 Premier League Season

5 Defining Moments From the Reds' 2015/16 Premier League Season

Yet another season of the Premier League has just ended with a new champion being crowned (how rare is that!) and Liverpool ending in 8th place (not so rare!). Once Liverpool changed their manager in October, it was always known that this season would not be where we would be competing at the top table and hence anything achieved would be a bonus. Like any other season there were lot of good moments and an equal share of bad moments. …
Managing Daniel Sturridge - Method to Klopp's Madness?

Managing Daniel Sturridge - Method to Klopp's Madness?

For the best part of a fortnight now Daniel Sturridge and Jurgen Klopp have dominated this website, our podcasts and social media. So many questions were being asked about the pair, from why Jurgen hadn't played Sturridge in the first leg against Villarreal to whether Sturridge was at odds with Klopp, the fans and the club. Well, finally Daniel Sturridge has spoken out on the particular subject and in the interview he gave to the Liverpool Echo he's put all of …
Villarreal Vs. Liverpool | In-Depth Tactical Preview

Villarreal Vs. Liverpool | In-Depth Tactical Preview

Based in the tiny City of Vila-Real in the Comunitat Valenciana on the East Coast of Spain, Villarreal have arguably been the 21st century’s biggest football over-achievers. With a stadium that could fit half the city’s population, the club captivated the football world back in 2006 when they reached the Champions League semi-final with a team including the likes of Senna, Riquelme and Forlan. The Yellow Submarine, as they’re known in Spain (I imagine to the delight of British tabloid …
The Three Dortmund Players Liverpool Need to Stop

The Three Dortmund Players Liverpool Need to Stop

Borussia Dortmund are up there with the best teams in Europe this season. They're currently only five points behind Bayern Munich in the Bundesliga. That may sound like a big gap but given just how good Bayern have been this season it's some achievement for Dortmund to even be within touching distance as the season enters its final stages. Dortmund don't have the luxury of spending huge sums of money. They can't compete with the likes of Bayern, Madrid and …
Can You Have Too Many Attacking Midfielders?

Can You Have Too Many Attacking Midfielders?

"Liverpool don't need Götze, they've already got too many attacking midfielders" This comment isn't just exclusive to fans of the opposition, sadly, but actual Liverpool supporters. Yes you're reading this correctly, there are Reds fans that believe Liverpool, a Europa League team as things stand, don't need Germany's World Cup winning hero Mario Götze because they've already got Philippe Coutinho, Adam Lallana and Roberto Firmino as their attacking midfield options. Of course, all number 10's in world football are the same …
Top Four Is On For Liverpool, People

Top Four Is On For Liverpool, People

For those of you who took the time to click on an article so shamelessly titled in such an abhorrent manner, fear not: I am not deluded. Though many have mused that very possibility, and while there have been times when that may have been the case, this is not one of those times. While schedule congestion will work against the Reds in their attempt to seal a top 4 spot by season’s end, a combination of simple mathematics, a …
Mario Götze, a Perfect Reunion?

Mario Götze, a Perfect Reunion?

As soon as Jürgen Klopp arrived at Liverpool FC, various newspapers posed the question, 'Which former players from Klopp's Dortmund team would he attempt to sign?', Liverpool have been linked with Ílkay Gündogan, Marco Reus and Neven Subotić, but most recently there have been reports of a summer move for Mario Götze on the cards; fuelled by comments during an interview from Götze himself, saying,
"I have not heard anything. You should ask Klopp if he wants me at Liverpool. If …
Liverpool, Consistency and the Pecking Order

Liverpool, Consistency and the Pecking Order

During this season I’ve written quite a bit about its seemingly endless twists and turns, the high points, and on the back of the latest bump in the road that sent the Liverpool wagon spinning off the rails, the occasional lows. It’s to be expected of course. New manager, new tactical masterplan, players signed for a different plan fighting to adjust and be accepted by the new boss. Even in a more run-of-the-mill season for everyone else it was never …
