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 …

Liverpool vs Stoke City Preview: Reds to unwrap late present of points?

Liverpool host Stoke City on Tuesday in a bid to deliver a late Christmas present to their fans, in the form of three points.

THE DETAILS Match: Liverpool vs Sunderland Venue: Anfield Date: Tuesday 27th December Time: 17:15 BST Referee: Michael Oliver FORM Liverpool's …

Liverpool v Stoke City Preview: Key Battles

For the first time in six years Liverpool don't play a game on Boxing Day. In 2010 it was only because bad weather didn't allow a game at Blackpool, that the Reds not play on 26th December. But this time the revenue and the money from television has given the fixtures a spin, and the tradition of all ten teams playing on Boxing Day has been discontinued. Instead, the Reds welcome Stoke City to Anfield on the 27th, in the first of …
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

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 …
Observations from Liverpool's late win against Everton

Observations from Liverpool's late win against Everton

Imagine in the summer, before the fixture schedule was released, someone told you we would go to Goodison Park just six days before Christmas and win 1-0 thanks to a scrappy goal in added-time. Obvious response would have been "Oh yeah, if Carlsberg did football matches"  sort of one, followed swiftly by a "but imagine the Everton fume if that actually happened". Well it has. It was scrappy. The ref bottled it. Everton fans booed. It was your stereotypical derby and you …
Everton v Liverpool - A Statistical Preview

Everton v Liverpool - A Statistical Preview

Liverpool head into the Merseyside derby on the back of a highly impressive 3-0 win in midweek. Admittedly Middlesbrough weren’t the toughest opposition Jurgen Klopp and his men will face this season, but the ruthless and stylish manner of their win will not have gone unnoticed amongst their title rivals. Everton have made a habit of doing Liverpool favours in their home games over the past few weeks. Taking points from both Manchester United and Arsenal has only aided the …

Everton vs Liverpool Preview: Can the Reds end Toffees' home record?

Liverpool play their final fixture before Christmas on Monday, and it's only the small matter of an away trip to Everton. Indeed, the first Merseyside Derby of the season again falls away from Anfield, whilst there's also the intriguing tactical battle sure to come from Ronald Koeman and Jürgen Klopp's first face off in this grand old fixture. THE DETAILS Match: Everton vs Liverpool Stadium: Goodison Park Date: Monday 19th January Time: 20:00 BST Referee: Mike Dean FORM The Reds …
