What Jurgen Klopp Has To Change To Avoid Season Derailing

What Jurgen Klopp Has To Change To Avoid Season Derailing

In the wake of Liverpool's frustrating 1-1 draw against Burnley in the Premier League on Saturday, manager Jurgen Klopp and his men were left with more questions than answers. 2 points dropped against the Clarets added a run-of-the-mill seven days for the Reds, following a 6-0 harrowing at Manchester City followed by a 2-2 draw against Sevilla in their curtain raiser Champions League match at Anfield. And on Tuesday night, the club compounded a dreadful fortnight with a disappointing 2-0 …
Klopp's options to fix the defence before January

Klopp's options to fix the defence before January

As Islam Slimani crashed in Leicester's second on Tuesday night, it sent Liverpool packing from the League Cup and all but confirmed that the Reds would remain winless for a fourth successive game. After having five put past them by Manchester City, Jurgen Klopp's side could only manage draws against Sevilla and Burnley before being out-foxed by... well, you get the pun. Just nine games into the new season, Liverpool have already conceded 16 goals. It hasn't worked so far, …
Mo Salah: Liverpool’s New Dirk Kuyt, With A Twist

Mo Salah: Liverpool’s New Dirk Kuyt, With A Twist

On the face of it, comparing Mo Salah and Dirk Kurt is the equivalent of saying Breaking Bad and Game Of Thrones are similar TV shows. Kuyt is someone who got the very best out of his ability throughout an admirable career, occasionally resembling a pub player during an off day. Salah, meanwhile, is a player who oozes quality and natural talent, and possesses the kind of pace that most of us can only dream of. He is aesthetically-pleasing - …
Jurgen Klopp and the Exasperated Support

Jurgen Klopp and the Exasperated Support

And then came Burnley. Summary: We took lots of shots. Burnley not so much. We scored a goal and so did they. It finished 1-1, which means Liverpool lost. A Liverpool home draw with Burnley can only be that. Oh, you can argue the 'that's the point that could win us the League’ line all you want, but Liverpool should always beat Burnley. The Liverpool manager seemed baffled by the scoreline and took it out on the crowd around him. …
Coutinho's Return Could Shore Up Leaky Reds

Coutinho's Return Could Shore Up Leaky Reds

A lot has been made of Phillipe Coutinho’s return to the Liverpool side, following what has been a turbulent summer for our talismanic Brazilian. Coutinho eventually made his first start of the season against Burnley, as Liverpool were held to a frustrating 1-1 draw but whilst a lot of people have talked about what Coutinho brings to the table in an attacking sense, not so much has been said about how Coutinho could be a crucial element in shoring up …
Liverpool Need To Shore Up The Defence Or Win Nothing

Liverpool Need To Shore Up The Defence Or Win Nothing

The dust may have settled after Liverpool’s 2-2 draw with Sevilla, but the fume is still very much alive and well. Another slick attacking display was ruined by defensive incompetence, with the La Liga outfit scoring with both shots on target at Anfield. How many times does that seem to happen these days? Whether it be Dejan Lovren continuing to alienate himself from the fanbase, Jordan Henderson not protecting the back-line or Emre Can proving to be erratic - this …
Liverpool Not Signing A Centre-Back Is Unforgivable

Liverpool Not Signing A Centre-Back Is Unforgivable

Liverpool have made plenty of glaring errors throughout history, both on and off the pitch. Allowing Tom Hicks and George Gillett to buy the club was a horrific decision, in hindsight, and appointing Roy Hodgson was ineptitude of the highest order. The list goes on. In terms of transfer business, not bringing in a top class centre-back this summer has to be one of worst mistakes for a very long time. I’m a fairly laid-back fan, but every time I …
The Gini Wijnaldum Away Day Conundrum

The Gini Wijnaldum Away Day Conundrum

On 17th May 2015, as PSV Eindhoven’s game with ADO Den Haag entered injury time in the Kyocera Stadium, Georginio Wijnaldum scored to give the Rood-Witten a late goal and, subsequently, a 2-3 win. PSV were already champions and the Dutchman was soon to be on his way to the Premier League, but that goal would become significant in his career. It was to be the last time that he would score an away goal in a domestic match. Since then …
How Will Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain Fit In At Liverpool?

How Will Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain Fit In At Liverpool?

Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain is a Liverpool player. The Reds moved quickly and effectively to acquire the England international just days before the transfer window closed and Jurgen Klopp will expect big things from the former Arsenal star. Liverpool had to pay around £40 million to pry the 24-year-old away from the Emirates Stadium but it was a lucrative offer that Arsene Wenger simply couldn’t refuse. But how will Oxlade-Chamberlain fit in at Anfield in the long term? Well, The Daily Express …
Observations as Liverpool throw two points away vs Sevilla

Observations as Liverpool throw two points away vs Sevilla

Liverpool succumbed a 2-1 lead in the second-half to throw two points away against Sevilla in their first game of the Champions League group stages. The Reds started the game in the worst possible fashion, with Dejan Lovren delivering another woeful defensive error that allowed Ben Yedder to slot into the net from close range. Off balance and careless with his footing, the Croatian was caught out to put Jurgen Klopp's side under pressure after just five minutes. However, at …
