Roberto Firmino Threatening To Silence His Admirers

Roberto Firmino Threatening To Silence His Admirers

Roberto Firmino is a wonderful footballer - let’s start off by acknowledging that. After a slow start to life at Liverpool, due mainly to Brendan Rodgers expecting him to shine as a right winger, the Brazilian has become a key figure. The 4-1 win away to Man City in November 2015 was the first time we saw exactly what he can offer, both on and off the ball, and he has thrilled us ever since. To many, he is the …
Klopp's Liverpool FC - Poetry in NO-tion

Klopp's Liverpool FC - Poetry in NO-tion

As the final whistle sounded away at Watford on the opening day of the season, Liverpool had come away with a point, having conceded three away goals. “Oh well, we still have a couple of weeks left to sign a defender” we said. “Van Dijk will be signed soon enough” we said. How wrong we were. Liverpool failed to place a singled bid for the Dutchman or any other defender. Instead, we signed Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, who has made one start …
Why Liverpool's centre-backs need to start defending as a pair

Why Liverpool's centre-backs need to start defending as a pair

Another game, another avoidable goal conceded and yet two more points dropped.....sound familiar? A game that the Reds having scored the all-important first goal should have won with ease instead turned into another case of deja vu. I wrote earlier this summer that if we didn't sign a top-class centre-half the transfer window would've been a failure and for me it's hard to argue against this, but if we forget the players we haven't got and focus on the ones …
The Klopp Project (Part 2): Talking Tactics

The Klopp Project (Part 2): Talking Tactics

In part 1, I discussed the challenges facing any Liverpool manager in winning the league title. Given the challenges involved, I think all that can be realistically expected at this stage is consistently finishing in the top 4 and a concerted push to the later stages of the champions league. A league or champions league win has to be considered a bonus although they should remain the manager's aspiration. The difficulty of either trophy is such that to expect victory …
An Imperfect Marriage Between The System & The Players At Liverpool FC

An Imperfect Marriage Between The System & The Players At Liverpool FC

Klopp’s Liverpool are currently experiencing a turbulent time in terms of results, and fans are understandably becoming frustrated with the same defensive issues reoccurring regularly to deny Liverpool deserved wins. However, even though these issues appear to occur so repetitively, it still seems difficult for many to pinpoint the precise problem and identify exactly who’s to blame in each situation, and this is largely due to the elaborate nature of the system that Klopp currently has in place. Liverpool currently …
Daniel Sturridge: Past His Best But Badly Misunderstood

Daniel Sturridge: Past His Best But Badly Misunderstood

That 1-1 draw at Newcastle on Sunday was infuriating enough, but talkSPORT then decided to spout their usual bile. I say talkSPORT, but in this case it was an individual - Mr Deadline Day himself, Jim White, who presents a morning show on the station during the week. Taking to his twitter account on Monday, White asked the question:
"Talking Daniel Sturridge @talkSPORT right now! Is his attitude holding him back and is his time @LFC coming to an …
Improving Liverpool FC - Clutch Players

Improving Liverpool FC - Clutch Players

What is the best way to improve Liverpool Football Club? Despite a positive start to the season, culminating in a 4-0 win over Arsenal, the Reds problems are more apparent than ever and after a dismal September, a straightforward victory seems nigh on impossible to accomplish. Some of Liverpool’s pervading issues are obvious: we need both competent centre-backs and a coherent defensive structure; we need to reorganise and solidify our midfield; we aren’t pressing very well; the squad isn’t deep …
The Curious Case of Harry Wilson

The Curious Case of Harry Wilson

At Liverpool, there is a constant production line at the academy which brings young players into the lime light and gets fans excited about the club bringing through the next Premier League talent. Sometimes these players reach their potential and make an impact in the first team and beyond and others fall down the divisions until the find their level. Currently Liverpool have a couple of exciting players that have come through our youth system, players like Ben Woodburn, Ovie …
Confessions of a Liverpool Fan - From Believer To Doubter

Confessions of a Liverpool Fan - From Believer To Doubter

There’s nothing out there in the various podcasts, social media sphere, online articles, etc. that has not already been said about Liverpool’s recent stretch of mediocre performances. Like others, I detect the range of emotions expressed by Liverpool supporters. Truth be told, there are times I want to believe those who espouse the view that we’re doing reasonably well under the circumstances and we’re only 1 or 2 or 3 points away from such and such a place on the …
