Lallana & Wijnaldum: Liverpool's Attacking Midfielders Must Find Top Form

Lallana & Wijnaldum: Liverpool's Attacking Midfielders Must Find Top Form

Liverpool's season has fallen to pieces in 2017, and there has been so much talk about the loss of form of certain players, and injuries to others. James Milner and Nathaniel Clyne have not the hit the heights of their early-season performances; Joel Matip, Jordan Henderson and Philippe Coutinho have not hit top gear since being sidelined and Daniel Sturridge and Divock Origi have fallen off a cliff. Two players who have gone under the radar, but have been frustratingly …
Daniel Sturridge: Give the Man a Break!

Daniel Sturridge: Give the Man a Break!

In a recent interview, Daniel Sturridge claimed that he believed he was Liverpool's best striker. Yet in the comments section below the online article, a debate raged over Sturridge again, with familiar words and phrases banded around. A select few are below: Arrogant Selfish Injury prone Poor attitude Incompatible Once again, Daniel Sturridge is criticised and hounded for doing next to nothing. It's about time we give this player a break. Daniel Sturridge, since arriving to the club has, in my …
Gini & Emre: Why Do We Have To Choose One Or The Other?

Gini & Emre: Why Do We Have To Choose One Or The Other?

Imagine not being able to love both Steven Gerrard and Xabi Alonso at the same time. Or Sami Hyypia and Jamie Carragher. That would be mad, wouldn't it? Bizarrely, however, this is the position we find ourselves in with Liverpool’s current midfield generals Georginio Wijnaldum and Emre Can - two brilliant but hugely contrasting footballers. Given the tribal nature of the modern fan, a fair chunk of supporters seem to either be on Team Gini or Team Emre, and nothing …
James Milner: The Natural

James Milner: The Natural

“I am a Liverpool player and what the manager asks me to do I will do. Ultimately, if he thinks that is the best thing for the team then I will do it.” James Milner, August, 2016.
There it is. The quote that, for me, cements the fact that what we have in our experienced, tireless and ever-willing number seven is something to be treasured and lauded. I can’t imagine many other players being so ready to shift …
Georginio Wijnaldum: Ruthlessly Efficient

Georginio Wijnaldum: Ruthlessly Efficient

When Georginio Wijnaldum signed for a fee of £25 million, many saw him to be another attacking midfielder within the side, raising questions about what he could bring to the table given the current array of talent already at Klopp’s disposal. During his Newcastle days, Wijnaldum’s form was hugely inconsistent. Dipping in and out of games, he struggled to show his qualities on a week in week out basis. However, since moving to Anfield we have seen a completely different …
Nathaniel Clyne, Upgrades and Evolving

Nathaniel Clyne, Upgrades and Evolving

How good is it being a Liverpool fan right now? Klopp's men sit second in the league after the dramatic late win in the derby. We're the top scorers in the Premier League with 41 goals but what's even more impressive is how we have continued to impress despite some noticeable absentees. Daniel Sturridge, Joel Matip, Emre Can and Philippe Coutinho have all missed matches and while performances may have dropped off a little, we're still picking up points.  As cliche as …
The Dejan Lovren Conundrum

The Dejan Lovren Conundrum

Whenever a club signs Dejan Lovren a free instruction manual should be provided on what to do and what not to do to get the best out of him. Similar, in many ways, to the guidelines set out if you were to have a Gremlin, I suppose. Instead of the "don't feed them after midnight" spiel it's been replaced by a few simple rules: - Don't partner him beside the reckless, poorly disciplined Alberto Moreno because he shouldn't have to sweep up after …
Adam Lallana Epitomises Jurgen Klopp's Liverpool Side

Adam Lallana Epitomises Jurgen Klopp's Liverpool Side

Adam Lallana... *scratches head* I'm not going as far to say anybody claiming to have foreseen his evolution from a tepid attacking midfielder to this 2.0 version that Jurgen Klopp has definitely concocted in a lab a liar but I'm not not saying that either. It's been a turnaround of epic proportions for a player who was once labelled the 60 minute man because that's all you could get out of him. If he started it was practically a guarantee he …
Philippe Coutinho: Liverpool's Little Magician, Inter's Big Regret

Philippe Coutinho: Liverpool's Little Magician, Inter's Big Regret

Currently considered to be one of European football's premier playmakers, the Seleção's Philippe Coutinho Correia has evolved into everything Liverpool had hoped for when they acquired him from Italian giants Internazionale nearly three years ago. Known around Merseyside as "The Little Magician," Liverpool's modest number ten has been a breath of fresh air since swapping the black and blue shirt of former treble winners, Inter, for the red of Liverpool. Coutinho, born in the football haven of Rio de Janeiro, became heavily …
Nathaniel Clyne: Time to Celebrate Liverpool’s Most Reliable Player

Nathaniel Clyne: Time to Celebrate Liverpool’s Most Reliable Player

Nobody really grows up dreaming of being a right-back, do they? It is, quite possibly, the least glamorous position in football. The likes Carlos Alberto, Cafu, Philipp Lahm and Dani Alves have done their utmost to make it fashionable, but it has invariably been a role that goes relatively unnoticed, in comparison to goalkeeper, centre-back, central midfield, striker and pretty much any other position on the field. Even left-back is a little more mysterious and cool, due to left-footed players …
