Klopp Playing The Long Game With Rival Managers

Klopp Playing The Long Game With Rival Managers

Jurgen Klopp isn’t as universally fashionable as he was when he became Liverpool manager back in October 2015 - I think we can all agree on that. When Klopp arrived on our shores he was treated like a God by Reds supporters - something we love to do with our managers - and his appointment was widely seen as one of the most significant in the club’s great history. We all believed he was the man to take Liverpool back …
Naby Keïta - The Hottest Prospect in Europe

Naby Keïta - The Hottest Prospect in Europe

On the most recent edition of the AI Pro Euro Incision Podcast, Jonathan Harding discussed Naby Keïta, a player who most Liverpool fans cannot wait to see in the end jersey. Last season was a real coming of age for Keïta, as he set himself out as one of the best young prospects in world football - a diminutive figure on the field, but in terms of influence, a giant, blessed with a beautifully rounded offensive game. Harding drew attention …
Creativity from Liverpool's midfield....where is it?

Creativity from Liverpool's midfield....where is it?

After dominating yet another game of football in the league but not doing enough to win it, questions need to be asked as to where our creativity is coming from. Yes, we're creating chances & should be more clinical in front of goal but are we anywhere near our fluid and devastating best...not a chance! This time last season we had scored 18 goals and looked like a real force, this year we've scored four goals fewer and still look …
Fantasy Premier League Insight: GW9 - City Flying

Fantasy Premier League Insight: GW9 - City Flying

With GW8 behind us, let's reflect on what transpired and MY WORD! what a game week. All the focus was on Anfield as two Juggernauts did battle; the match itself was a let down as it finished honours even. The games to follow produced some of the more unexpected results Man City once again showed us why they are pretty much nailed on for the title, smacking seven goals past Stoke City. Even with Aguero out, City assets just keep …
Milner - The Answer To LFC's Midfield Woes?

Milner - The Answer To LFC's Midfield Woes?

When James Milner was announced in the starting line-up for Liverpool’s game against Maribor, my initial reaction was something along the lines of: “Oh cool, Milner’s playing, we’ve not seen him since the Burnley game.” I like Milner, think he’s a decent option and the team was pretty solid so no complaints from me. Predictably though, there was an almost instant backlash from the gathered Liverpool fans, as how dare Klopp start Milner ahead of the far more deserving Alex …
An Oasis of Goals in a Tough Campaign - Maribor 0 Liverpool 7

An Oasis of Goals in a Tough Campaign - Maribor 0 Liverpool 7

Following the demolition of Maribor a litany of caveats attempted to bring the stratospheric Reds back to earth. They’re a ‘glorified pub team,’ are ‘easily the worst side Liverpool will play this season’ and ‘well, if you they can’t beat them …’ It would difficult to argue with some of those words. Maribor were poor and how they failed a gazumping by Sevilla and Spartak is beyond me. Their unerring ability to fall for the same trick every time was …
Red Rant: What Are Liverpool Building?

Red Rant: What Are Liverpool Building?

Imagine you’re building a new house.  You’re not physically building it of course, but you’ve hired professionals to do it.  A few months in you stop by the property to see how things are progressing and you find the project far behind schedule. You ask the contractor to explain why the electricity doesn’t work.  He says the electrical guy doesn’t know how to run wiring, but he does know how to set up a surround sound system. Well, what about the plumbing?  Well, he …
Joe Gomez - A Name For The Future Or An Arrival?

Joe Gomez - A Name For The Future Or An Arrival?

There comes a day in every player’s career where they have to stop being the young lad, the starlet with potential and step up to the big arena. If you look down the list at those who have started with a reputation but have failed to build on it, it can make a sad read. Anthony Le Tallec, Florent Sinama-Pongollle, Neil Mellor and arguably Jon Flanagan have all had greatness thrust upon them but somehow fallen at the final step. …

Ruthlessness Key As Liverpool Face Arch-Rivals

Ruthlessness Key As Liverpool Face Arch-Rivals

Whisper it quietly, but Liverpool have actually played very well in general so far this season, regardless of the current narrative surrounding the Reds. Too many people judge a team’s success and form solely on results, but that can cloud the wider picture. If you actually scan through Liverpool’s 12 matches in 2017/18 to date, there aren’t many when you can accuse them of under-performing. Watford was a limp display back in August, as was their last outing at Newcastle, …
