Are the Kids All Right for Liverpool?

Are the Kids All Right for Liverpool?

Steve McManaman, Robbie Fowler, Michael Owen, Jamie Carragher, Steven Gerrard and Raheem Sterling. Six names that invoke differing opinions amongst Liverpool fans, but whatever their legacy, those six names are the only ones to have come through the youth academy system and successfully establish themselves as first team regulars during the Premier League era. There have been others, such as Dominic Matteo, Martin Kelly and Jon Flanagan who have had spells in the first team, but never really established themselves …
Observations from Liverpool's loss to Hull City

Observations from Liverpool's loss to Hull City

Hull City didn't read the script. The return of Sadio Mane was supposed to spark a Liverpool revival. Goals were supposed to flow, the Reds were supposed to get back to winning ways, and I was supposed to have a good weekend. Marco Silva's men just gave me the middle finger and continued their resurgence. The 2-0 defeat now means Liverpool have won just one of their last 10 matches. During that spell we've played Plymouth twice, Swansea, West Ham, …

Hull City v Liverpool Preview - Key Battles

Hull City v Liverpool Preview - Key Battles

A wretched January is now a thing of the past. Liverpool beat only Plymouth Argyle in the entire month and exited both the FA Cup and the EFL Cup. But, luckily, the month had only 3 Premier League games in it, and that means that despite Liverpool's terrible form, they are still just a point off second place in the league. The month ended with a better performance than any of the other eight, as the Reds could consider themselves unlucky …

Observations from Liverpool's draw against Chelsea

"Encouraging" That's one way to describe the performance in the second-half tonight against Chelsea. It wasn't the swash-buckling, all action, interchangeable attack we'd become accustomed to earlier on in the season but there were signs it was awakening from a winter slumber. There was movement, incisive passing and an attacking edge that we'd been lacking in recent weeks and it was good to see. We made Chelsea, the runaway league leaders, look average. That, in itself, is quite the feat. …

Liverpool vs Chelsea Preview - Key Battles

Liverpool are having an absolutely wretched January as they welcome the leaders Chelsea to Anfield. Liverpool have lost three home games in a row for the first time since 2012 and they would dearly want to ensure the streak does not extend to four. The below are the key battles to look forward to in this blockbuster fixture. LIVERPOOL MIDFIELD vs MATIC/KANTE Klopp has preferred to line up with a midfield three in almost all of the games, hence it …

Observations from Liverpool's FA Cup defeat to Wolves

The 2-1 FA Cup defeat to Wolves means it's three defeats on the bounce now. All at home. Fortress Anfield has fallen. January has been a bit of a sobering experience for Liverpool fans. Out of the League Cup, out of the FA Cup and we've fallen 10 points behind league leaders Chelsea, and that could be a further three come Tuesday evening when we host Antonio Conte's men. The squad, not just the first-team, look bereft of confidence and uneasy …
Wounded Liverpool Welcome Wolves to Anfield | FA Cup 4th Round Preview

Wounded Liverpool Welcome Wolves to Anfield | FA Cup 4th Round Preview

To say that Liverpool are wounded is an understatement. Talks of a crisis may yet be premature, but there are certainly chinks in the armour that Jurgen Klopp needs to rectify as soon as he possibly can. They welcome a Wolverhampton Wanderers side who have blown hot and cold recently. They beat Stoke in the previous round of the FA Cup, and followed that up by beating Aston Villa in the Championship. But their most recent game was a 3-1 …
Observations from Liverpool's Defeat to Southampton

Observations from Liverpool's Defeat to Southampton

Liverpool's horrid start to 2017 continued with yet another defeat. The Reds have now won just one of their seven matches since the turn of the year, missing out on a return to Wembley after a frustrating night against a weakened Southampton at Anfield. The visitors were without the injured Virgil Van Dijk and started 22-year-old Jack Stephens alongside Maya Yoshida. It should have been like lambs to the slaughter for the likes of Firmino, Coutinho and Sturridge, but the …
