Gerrard: Liverpool Need Daniel Sturridge

Gerrard: Liverpool Need Daniel Sturridge

You know that feeling when you really want to watch the Redmen but you really don't want to watch the Redmen? Here at Latest News, that was the itchy blanket of ambivalence that we snuggled beneath on the sofa and warily changed the channel to BT Sport ahead of last night's cup tie with Plymouth. Within seconds of taking in the comical suit and roll-neck combo sported by try-hard host Jake Humphrey and then realising that 'punditry' for the night …
Lethal Lucas Strikes Again

Lethal Lucas Strikes Again

Most of the Liverpool fans I know for certain to be actual corporeal beings don't have a lot of time for Lucas Leiva as a footballer. In stark contrast, those with whom I only have virtual interactions seem to almost uniformly love the amiable Brazilian. As is often the way in the odd life through which Latest News lurches, the people who live in the computer are often more simpatico. They may not be real but this collection of novelty …

Matip Farce Like Brexit Says Klopp

Mignolet: Everyone Chips In

Mignolet: Everyone Chips In

Recently, Latest News has been succumbing to an innate desire to ramble but every so often one of Liverpool's finest has so much to say for themselves that the bulk of this column will be their words and you, dear reader, are spared the meandering nonsense and anecdotal piffle that often greets the wary click of your mouse. This morning is such an occasion, for in an interview with the Liverpool Echo, Simon Mignolet, that figure of so much fan …
Klopp: Matip Did Nothing Wrong

Klopp: Matip Did Nothing Wrong

Irrespective of one's political leanings, and trust me, readers, there will never be any such divisive talk here in the paragraphs of Latest News, it is hard to ignore the aptness of Leon Trotsky's take on administrative red tape as it might be applied to the triangle of inertia between FIFA, Fédération Camerounaise de Football and Liverpool's Joel Matip. The neatly bearded Marxist revolutionary and theorist opined that "there is no justice in bureaucracy for the individual, for bureaucracy caters only to itself. …
Coutinho: We Have Big Objectives

Coutinho: We Have Big Objectives

In the early hours of Monday morning, with the latent antipathy towards Manchester United still pulsing in the back of our poor battered heads, Latest News used the platform provided by AI Towers to witter inanely about the Sky Sports narrative that Liverpool's performance had ruined. There were so many glaring examples of a bias in the presentation of that narrative that your scribbler could not possibly have mentioned them all in what is supposed to be a quick read …
Matip Absence May Continue

Matip Absence May Continue

Yesterday, as that maestro of the machinations of modern football instructed his preposterously expensive team to get the ball wide and bombard the Liverpool penalty area with crosses and diagonal bombs, this scribbler can't have been alone in thinking that it would have been an altogether more forlorn exercise if Joel Matip had been free to take his place at the heart of the Liverpool rear guard. Jose Mourinho looked on with smug satisfaction as the preening Zlatan Ibrahimovic and his …
Klopp: We Were Better

Klopp: We Were Better

"We were the better side, played better football, had a better plan." Jürgen Klopp "We stopped them playing but they also did very well from the defensive point of view." Jose Mourinho
Everybody loves a good story, especially here at Latest News. The creation of narrative is as old as we are as a species. The past, after all, is just a story that we tell ourselves, so the same thing should work for the future, right? Well, not really. …
Lovren: Liverpool Learning From Klopp

Lovren: Liverpool Learning From Klopp

On Friday mornings, as Latest News sips an Americano and contemplates its navel, the events of the week tend to spill out from the dark recesses of a troubled mind. There was that idiot on the roundabout with a death wish, the older lady who aggressively elbowed her way past schoolchildren in a coffee queue and the nice fellow who popped up in the comments section pleading with the author of this column to "speak english (sic) please." In a week where the only …
Karius: We Can Turn It Around

Karius: We Can Turn It Around

Instagram enthusiast Dejan Lovren took to his preferred social media platform to wish Emre Can a happy 23rd birthday today. For once, the Croat was not driving at the same time and his heartfelt sentiment was accompanied by the inevitable selfie with the German. "Happy birthday, my brother," Lovren gushed. "Think that you're a top player in my eyes." Without doubt, the post will have enraged the angry ants that swarm Liverpool fan forums looking for opportunities to be outraged, but for this writer …
