Are the Kids All Right for Liverpool?

Are the Kids All Right for Liverpool?

Steve McManaman, Robbie Fowler, Michael Owen, Jamie Carragher, Steven Gerrard and Raheem Sterling. Six names that invoke differing opinions amongst Liverpool fans, but whatever their legacy, those six names are the only ones to have come through the youth academy system and successfully establish themselves as first team regulars during the Premier League era. There have been others, such as Dominic Matteo, Martin Kelly and Jon Flanagan who have had spells in the first team, but never really established themselves …
A Liverpool Problem, Not a Klopp Problem

A Liverpool Problem, Not a Klopp Problem

A lot has been said recently with regards to Liverpool’s latest slump in form, that saw the Reds lose three home games in a row, go from the red arrows to paper planes and relinquish their chance in two very good cup competitions. Probably for the first time in his tenure, fans are (and rightly so) asking questions of manager Jurgen Klopp, and this is well within anyone’s rights to do so. That being said, I do have to disagree with …
They Think It's All Over... It's Not Yet

They Think It's All Over... It's Not Yet

For much of my Liverpool-supporting life, I've been accused of being needlessly pessimistic. I often expect us to lose every big game we play, even though Jurgen Klopp has a superb record against rivals, and prior to his appointment, I would write us off at every given opportunity. This may have been a defence mechanism, in order to soften the blow when defeats inevitably came along, but there was still a part of me that was naturally negative about the …
Let's Put January Behind Us, It's Time To Kick On

Let's Put January Behind Us, It's Time To Kick On

Liverpool endured a torrid January, exiting both the EFL and FA Cup in just four days while seeing their challenge against Premier League leaders Chelsea lose momentum. Winning just one of nine fixtures in all competitions, the Reds' performances were a stark contrast from the free-flowing attacking football we were shown earlier in the season. A year long unbeaten run at Anfield came crashing down, with three defeats in the space of a week against Swansea, Southampton and Wolves. Subsequently, …
Klopp's Liverpool remain on track but concern for Sturridge is justified

Klopp's Liverpool remain on track but concern for Sturridge is justified

It's taken just over a year for the belief in Jurgen Klopp's ability to guide Liverpool to brighter days. Liverpool's inability to capitalise on a favourites' chance to reach the final of the League Cup earlier this week completed a run of seven games without a victory and, in the eyes of some, provided all the ammunition required to point the proverbial gun at Liverpool's charismatic manager, safe in their opinion that doing so is perfectly reasonable. It isn't, of course. …
Brandt or Pulisic? Which Young Gun Fits Best?

Brandt or Pulisic? Which Young Gun Fits Best?

There’s certainly been no hiding Klopp’s fancies. Reliable information is at a premium in this day and age, but two pieces of information all have gotten behind in recent times are Liverpool’s pursuits of two of the Bundesliga’s most captivating young attackers. It’s more than justified as well; Sadio Mané’s absence from Liverpool has been detrimental to the way the once mesmeric attack functions, and has brought up the lack of depth Klopp has in his attack. A young, dynamic, …
Is Klopp's reluctance to make changes costing Liverpool wins?

Is Klopp's reluctance to make changes costing Liverpool wins?

Editors Note: This article was written before the loss to Wolves. So we are now twenty-seven days in to 2017 and the Reds have won just one of their seven games in the New Year, drawing three (admittedly a good point at Old Trafford) and losing three. Even taking away the results from the FA Cup and EFL Cup matches, that leaves us with just two points from a possible nine since the turn of the year; by contrast, Chelsea have six …
Liverpool: 2017. Don't Give Up

Liverpool: 2017. Don't Give Up

Well, this is not good. Good is the thing it is not. On a good/bad ratio the numbers are stacked in the latter camp. The opening seven games of 2017 have seen the Reds win one, draw three and lose three. Only at Home Park did Liverpool leave the pitch a goal in credit and that was with a predominantly second string in a pretty average game. We’re just not playing well what with the first team slowing down and …
Are the Wheels Coming Off Liverpool's Season?

Are the Wheels Coming Off Liverpool's Season?

Defeat at home to Swansea was tough to take, a real bitter pill to swallow. January has been a poor month for Liverpool, both from a result and performance perspective. I’ve been quite philosophical about things this year, not wanting to get too carried away by defeats or victories. I’ve long been of the opinion that we are a work in progress under Jürgen Klopp and our over achieving early this season has resulted in some excessive expectations from some. …
Liverpool Are Lacking Nastiness & Winners In Their Ranks

Liverpool Are Lacking Nastiness & Winners In Their Ranks

In Liverpool's heartbreaking 3-3 draw with Crystal Palace in 2014, Philippe Coutinho had a great chance to haul down Yannick Bolasie in his own half with the score at 3-1. He chose not to, Bolasie broke away and Dwight Gayle eventually made it 3-2. It was a perfect example of the Reds failing to be masters of the dark arts, and it has been an issue for a number of years. Watching Liverpool's increasingly faltering season is painful right now, …
