Sturridge Has To Start To Prevent Liverpool's Blunt Attack Persisting

Sturridge Has To Start To Prevent Liverpool's Blunt Attack Persisting

With Liverpool's attack continuing to look like a harmlessly blunt instrument, it could well be time for Jurgen Klopp to unleash Daniel Sturridge from the off against West Ham on Sunday. The 27-year-old has endured another tough season at Anfield, with a long list of injuries greatly restricting his ability to hold down a regular spot in Jurgen Klopp's team. Having made just five starts in the Premier League this season, he is clearly behind both Firmino and Origi in …
What I've Learned About Liverpool FC This Season

What I've Learned About Liverpool FC This Season

Once again, I’ve found myself schooled in football fandom over the last nine months. Some lessons I’ve been educated in for the first time, others I’ve shamefully realised should have been taken on board many years ago. That shame stemmed from the age-old occurrence of once again counting my chickens before the eggs were even laid. I got carried away, sucked in by the gathering speed of that train called ‘Momentum’. Yes, at Christmas I allowed myself to believe that …
Hit-And-Miss Wijnaldum The Epitome Of Liverpool’s Season

Hit-And-Miss Wijnaldum The Epitome Of Liverpool’s Season

It’s impossible not to like Gini Wijnaldum as a person. If you dislike him, I am firmly of the opinion that there is something fundamentally wrong with you.  That cheeky smile, fantastic team ethic and winning mentality all make him one of the most popular figures at Anfield, and rightly so. Whether he’s taking on nine-year-olds with Philippe Coutinho, nutmegging strangers in the middle of Liverpool city centre or showcasing his fantastic tactical awareness, he’s a class act. There can …
Divock Origi - Pace, Potential and Patience

Divock Origi - Pace, Potential and Patience

After yet another draw at home on Sunday, there was one man who took the brunt of criticism after his laboured and abject performance leading the line for Liverpool... it's time to talk about Divock Origi. One of the main reasons for the Belgian international receiving so much scrutiny was down to many fans clambering for the return of  Daniel Sturridge. While I would've liked Sturridge to start, it is clear that Klopp doesn't trust him to play from the …
Liverpool Must Avoid Repeat Of 2002/03 Finale

Liverpool Must Avoid Repeat Of 2002/03 Finale

Liverpool have been famed for some fairly spectacular disappointments over the years, especially since the Premier League era got underway. The end of the 2002/03 season was one of the Reds’ most disastrous conclusions to a campaign, and it actually altered English football forever in the process. With two matches remaining, Liverpool remained right in the mix for a top-four finish, sitting level on points with fourth-place Chelsea - a team improving under Claudio Ranieri, but a far cry from …
Is Klopp Solving Liverpool's Biggest Problems?

Is Klopp Solving Liverpool's Biggest Problems?

When Liverpool lost 3-1 to Leicester at the end of February, it was the culmination of a truly horrendous run of form that saw the Reds win just one of their seven league games in January and February, as well as crash out of two cup competitions. Overall, we registered just two wins from twelve across those two months, a 1-0 win over Plymouth in an FA Cup replay, and the 2-0 demolition of Spurs. After the Leicester game, Klopp …
Jurgen Klopp: The Bench Connection

Jurgen Klopp: The Bench Connection

Well someone didn’t get the memo. Following three gutsy away games at Stoke, West Brom and Watford, and two limp ones at home to Bournemouth and Palace, yesterday’s match was an opportunity for the real Liverpool to stand up and beat their chests. Three games left, lads. Time to wipe Southampton away as City had done to Palace the previous day, yeah? Do you want this or not? Hmm? Not sure. This reticence to take what’s in front of our …
Klopp's Tactical Ineptitude Costs Liverpool

Klopp's Tactical Ineptitude Costs Liverpool

Liverpool were presented with the opportunity to consolidate their stranglehold on top 4 when Southampton came to Anfield - a win would've taken the Reds ahead of Manchester City in 3rd, but instead Liverpool produced a dire performance which saw a blow in their hopes for Champions League football next term. Before kick off, a lot of supporters were saying how a win here would be a huge statement of intent as it would be a mental and tactical block …
Henderson, Henderson, Wherefore Art Thou Henderson?

Henderson, Henderson, Wherefore Art Thou Henderson?

Three games left in the battle for top-four and Liverpool have to make do without their skipper. Jordan Henderson has now missed the last eleven games and as we enter the final stages of the campaign, Alex Ferguson's comments from 2013 become all the more poignant. The former-Manchester United manager made some rather damning comments in regard to Henderson four years ago, stating:
"We looked at Jordan Henderson a lot and Steve Bruce was unfailingly enthusiastic about him. Against that we noticed that Henderson runs …
Liverpool's run in: Cometh the hour, cometh the Studge?

Liverpool's run in: Cometh the hour, cometh the Studge?

Hello, hello. Here we go. It's getting closer. Southampton at home, West Ham away, Middlesbrough at home. "Six points will do us," says Fred. "Nah, we need seven" offers Barry. "Don't be so pessimistic, four points and Champions League football is as good as ours" predicts Bob. Maybe all Liverpool need is Daniel Sturridge, in order to go above and beyond those totals. To say that Sturridge is a secret weapon is unfair. Everyone's aware of his qualities, to the …
