Momentum - Assessing Liverpool's Domestic Progress

Momentum - Assessing Liverpool's Domestic Progress

Progress is one of the big buzzwords around Jürgen Klopp’s Liverpool at the moment. The club has finished in the top four for the second season in a row, ensuring back to back Champions League campaigns for the first time since Rafa Benitez in 2009. Moreover, the club has backed that up by making use of their Champions League campaign, reaching the final for the first time since 2007 at the first time of asking under Klopp. But I’d argue …

Drink In Every Second Of Liverpool’s Champions League Final Build-Up

Not every football supporter is lucky enough to have a Champions League final to look forward to. Some will never experience it. Most have already erased football from their minds, for the time being, recharging the batteries and focusing on other interests, prior to the World Cup taking over their summer. That couldn’t be further from the case with Liverpool, though. Premier League duties may be done and dusted, with the Reds nailing their pre-season objective of registering consecutive top-four …
The Other Battle To Reach The Champions League Final

The Other Battle To Reach The Champions League Final

While Liverpool had to negotiate Germany’s most recent hipster team in Hoffenheim before seeing off Maribor, Seville, Spartak Moscow, Porto, the English League champions and the conquerors of FC Barcelona, their fans face an equally rocky path on their way to the final on 26th May. To get to Kiev, our fans – many of whom have already been around the continent several times to qualify for final tickets – have to undergo several dramas to secure their trip to …
Liverpool's Problems Defending Crosses

Liverpool's Problems Defending Crosses

Since Virgil van Dijk joined the club in January, there's no doubting that our defence has drastically improved. Whether this is totally down to the towering Dutchman or a combination of factors including the re-introduction of Loris Karius in goal and the ever improving performances of Andy Robertson at left-back is up for debate. However, what cannot be denied is that big Virg is a phenomenal defender with fantastic attributes that any defence would benefit from. Having said this, both …
Liverpool 4-0 Brighton: Man of the Match

Liverpool 4-0 Brighton: Man of the Match

It was close to a perfect afternoon for Champions League final-bound Liverpool on Sunday as they emphatically sealed a top-four spot with a 4-0 demolition of Brighton. A string of sloppy domestic displays meant the top-four race was still just about alive at kick-off, but the defensively-assured and offensively-magnificent Reds soon put their qualification beyond any doubt. Whilst Mohamed Salah put the gloss on a record-breaking campaign by securing the golden boot and Dominic Solanke responded to mounting criticism with …
Mohamed Salah to remain at Liverpool despite Real Madrid interest

Mohamed Salah to remain at Liverpool despite Real Madrid interest

Whenever a player emerges as one of the world’s best, they always end up being linked with the top European clubs. It’s inevitable. This season, Mohamed Salah has become one of the hottest names in world football thanks to his sensational campaign with Liverpool. Salah has only been at Anfield for one season, following his move from Italian club Roma last summer, but he settled instantly and has been arguably the best player in Europe this season. Salah’s stats speak …
Mina, Yerry unlikely but still important for Liverpool

Mina, Yerry unlikely but still important for Liverpool

Liverpool supporters woke up to some surprising claims from Ignacio Miguelez on Latin American football show, ChiriLatino, breaking “exclusive news” that the Reds had made an agreement with Barcelona to take young centre-back Yerry Mina on loan for next season. https://twitter.com/chirilatino/status/994734988280188928 Well, that’s that then. Right? Many outlets seemed to take this as fact, or close to it, but this one should be looked at with some serious side-eye based on some of the details surrounding Mina’s particular circumstance. The …
Liverpool’s Other Fekirs | Transfer Rumour Round-Up

Liverpool’s Other Fekirs | Transfer Rumour Round-Up

The sudden explosion of rumours surrounding the possible transfer of Lyon's Nabil Fekir has sucked all of the oxygen out of the Twittersphere. In the shadow of an impending mega-deal, stories of Ukrainian backup goalkeepers, heists from rival youth academies and pricy Portuguese B-teamers can barely buy a click. Poor ol' Sega Diallo can hardly get a retweet in the middle of the Fekir furor. But, at this point, Fekir has already been photoshopped into a rollercoaster with Klopp, we’ve …
Quality Over Quantity - A Quiet Summer for LFC?

Quality Over Quantity - A Quiet Summer for LFC?

Liverpool are rapidly heading towards yet another pivotal summer for the club. With the type of manager than Jürgen Klopp is, and the way that Liverpool are developing – not to mention the current Premier League climate – every single transfer window feels absolutely vital. But in many respects, the constant overhype of every window, the questions of how this side will develop and how big the overhaul will be are contrary to Klopp’s own way of looking at things, …
Mohamed Salah: Past, Present & Future

Mohamed Salah: Past, Present & Future

With 4 strokes of his boot Salah scored two goals and assisted a further two to help Liverpool come out on top as 5-2 winners against AS Roma in the first leg of the UEFA Champions League semi-final and take them to within touching distance of the final showpiece of Europe’s elite competition in Kyiv and whilst he didn’t add to his tally in the second leg, Liverpool progressed 7-6 on aggregate against Roma. With his performances this season he …
