The Running Man - Adam Lallana

The Running Man - Adam Lallana

While fatigue will certainly have taken its toll on several Premier League teams during the gruelling Christmas fixtures, one man seems completely unaffected by it all...one Adam Lallana. The England international covered a total of 13.22km in the 2-2 draw with Sunderland, recording 12.88km in the win against Manchester City just two days before. Both distances were the highest ran by any Liverpool player in the Premier League during the Bank Holiday weekend. Despite struggling under Brendan Rodgers’ tutelage, Adam …
No Mane - Can We Cope?

No Mane - Can We Cope?

Liverpool have enjoyed an impressive season so far and Sadio Mane has been at the heart of it. Few could have envisioned the magnitude of his impact when he completed a £30million summer switch from Southampton. All the questions that were initially raised about the investment have been well and truly answered, with the forward slotting in perfectly to Klopp’s side. Featuring in all but one of Liverpool’s 20 Premier League games, Mane has registered nine goals and five assists …
Jurgen Klopp Must Prioritise Man Utd Over the Southampton Clash

Jurgen Klopp Must Prioritise Man Utd Over the Southampton Clash

Liverpool’s relentless schedule shows no sign of slowing up, and we now approach another season-defining spell in the Reds’ season. Having conquered the festive period in impressive fashion - I’m willing to fight anyone who moans about 13 points from a possible 15, just because Liverpool drew with Sunderland - it’s now time for Jurgen Klopp to tackle two different competitions in four days. First up is the League Cup semi-final first-leg against Southampton at St Mary’s on Wednesday, followed …
Liverpool's Lost Talent XI : 2012-2016

Liverpool's Lost Talent XI : 2012-2016

Much has been said about Brendan Rodgers' time at Anfield. He was often lauded for his development of talent, both by the press and by himself. This week's news that Tiago Ilori is likely to move on to Reading   had me thinking, how much talent did the Northern Irishman waste or ignore during his tenure? Yes, Raheem Sterling and Luis Suarez become household names, with the latter almost single handedly winning Liverpool the league. But looking back at the …
Klopp is the best manager to create attacking teams

Klopp is the best manager to create attacking teams

“Maybe Klopp is the best manager in the world at creating teams who attack the back four”. High praise indeed. When you consider it came from Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola, that’s a monumentally positive review. The serially successful Spaniard was a treble winner in his first season with Barcelona. His Catalan side once averaged 3 goals per game in a league season. He oversaw the development of one of football’s all time attacking greats, and, around Lionel Messi, helped …
Liverpool FC: Let's See How Far We've Come

Liverpool FC: Let's See How Far We've Come

Perspective is often the rarest of commodities in football. Swept up in the bustling action of the season, results are often what matter the most. The mood of a fanbase is determined by the way their team is playing, and more importantly, whether or not they won their last three games. Winning three in a row; now that’s grounds for celebration. Losing three in a row, and the mood will be one of despair. Anything in between – and it’s …
Sunderland 2 Liverpool 2 - I'm Furious With You All!

Sunderland 2 Liverpool 2 - I'm Furious With You All!

Heads have gone. Absolutely gone. Liverpool drew 2-2 with one of the worst sides in recent Premiership history and the people are furious. Come full time, Twitter and Facebook became a modern day version of George Orwell’s Two Minute Hate. ‘How typical of us to beat City and then not beat a Moyes side!’ ‘Good riddance, Lucas!’ ‘That’s the league gone! We’ll never catch Chelsea now!’ I read those words on the night of the Sunderland game (that being the …
Steven Caulker, Liverpool Legend

Steven Caulker, Liverpool Legend

On a recent episode of the In Focus podcast on Anfield Index, host Jon Buscall and guest Harinder Singh discussed and debated the concept of a Liverpool legend: what it took to be a legend, which players deserve the honour, and why some fell just short. It was difficult not to listen and be persuaded by the rational and systematic way that both Singh and Buscall approached the question. Now for something completely different. At present, for fans of Liverpool …
Jurgen Klopp's Liverpool: The Most Feared Team In The Land

Jurgen Klopp's Liverpool: The Most Feared Team In The Land

When was the last time an opponent took on Liverpool, played their natural game and got the better of the Reds? When did a game finish and you genuinely thought, “they’ve gone toe-to-toe with us there, and deserved their win”? It has barely happened in 2016/17 to date, if at all. Arsenal were their usual selves on the opening weekend and were dispatched of by Jurgen Klopp’s men, and Chelsea were outplayed by a more superior outfit the following month. …
Sadio Mané's Absence and Liverpool FC's Options

Sadio Mané's Absence and Liverpool FC's Options

Sadio Mané has been a surprise blessing for many Liverpool fans. Despite his inconsistencies from past seasons still being seen in shades thus far, the Senegalese wide-player has been a great addition to Jürgen Klopp’s Liverpool side. Needless to say, he’s gone beyond proving himself to the Anfield faithful, many of whom had doubts of varying degrees with consideration to his price tag and especially given that he’s yet another Southampton recruit. In the next couple of weeks, Mane heads …
