Philippe Coutinho: His Biggest Season Yet

Philippe Coutinho: His Biggest Season Yet

It has been three and a half years since the slight and shy Philippe Coutinho joined Liverpool FC, back in January of the 2012/13 season. It was immediately evident that he had talent, with his dribbling and close control breathtaking, and quintessentially Brazilian. However, one thing that Liverpool fans noticed was he may struggle to adapt to the physicality of the league, and that his shooting was not one of his greatest assets. Yet, here we are in the summer …
The Case for Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain

The Case for Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain

Ahh, the summer time. Predominantly known for its pleasant weather, or, if you’re an avid football fan, the sheer amount of back and forth information – more often than not false – being spread amongst this curious concept known as the “rumour mill.” Which takes us to the man in question. The rumour being spoken about is that of Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain’s potential move from Arsenal to Liverpool. It’s gained traction after a couple of reliable sources began to spin the …
Emre Can: Silencing The Impatient Doubters

Emre Can: Silencing The Impatient Doubters

“Sell Emre Can in the summer”, ”he’s such an average player”, “I’d rather Kev Stewart started ahead of him now”. Bet you’re feeling a little foolish if you uttered words of that ilk with regards to Emre Can earlier in the season. Keep it quiet, but I may even have had a few digs too, which I regret.  Modern football absolutely loves a scapegoat, and few sets of supporters do it better than Liverpool fans. It doesn’t matter how well …
The Return of 'O Magico: Philippe Coutinho!

The Return of 'O Magico: Philippe Coutinho!

The magician, Philippe Coutinho, is back. His return to form could hardly have occurred at a more opportune time. With Mané, Henderson and Lallana injured, and the stakes as high as ever in the race for a Champions League position, Coutinho's renewed confidence feels as influential and important as a new signing. Like all top players, he delivered when the pressure was on - the Merseyside Derby - a match which he seized and made his own. He dominated from the …
Roberto Firmino: A False or Faulty-Nine?

Roberto Firmino: A False or Faulty-Nine?

As the dust settles on yet another Liverpool FC setback in their pursuit of a Champions League spot come the end of the season, attention is justifiably set on Liverpool's defence. The Reds are on course to concede over 50 goals in a league season again, and conceded 3 goals to Leicester, a team who had not scored a league goal in 2017. However, during the first half of the season, Liverpool managed to get away with their fragile defence, due …
Do these loan players have a future with the Reds?

Do these loan players have a future with the Reds?

There are a number of notable players currently enjoying spells away from Anfield, but with only three months left of the season, will they be welcomed back into the squad come the summer or will they be shipped out again, temporarily or permanently? There are currently 13 senior players out on loan; ranging from former PSG captain Mamadou Sakho at Crystal Palace to 22-year-old striker Jack Dunn at Tranmere Rovers. Some of them are quality players who just needed game …
Lallana & Wijnaldum: Liverpool's Attacking Midfielders Must Find Top Form

Lallana & Wijnaldum: Liverpool's Attacking Midfielders Must Find Top Form

Liverpool's season has fallen to pieces in 2017, and there has been so much talk about the loss of form of certain players, and injuries to others. James Milner and Nathaniel Clyne have not the hit the heights of their early-season performances; Joel Matip, Jordan Henderson and Philippe Coutinho have not hit top gear since being sidelined and Daniel Sturridge and Divock Origi have fallen off a cliff. Two players who have gone under the radar, but have been frustratingly …
Daniel Sturridge: Give the Man a Break!

Daniel Sturridge: Give the Man a Break!

In a recent interview, Daniel Sturridge claimed that he believed he was Liverpool's best striker. Yet in the comments section below the online article, a debate raged over Sturridge again, with familiar words and phrases banded around. A select few are below: Arrogant Selfish Injury prone Poor attitude Incompatible Once again, Daniel Sturridge is criticised and hounded for doing next to nothing. It's about time we give this player a break. Daniel Sturridge, since arriving to the club has, in my …
Gini & Emre: Why Do We Have To Choose One Or The Other?

Gini & Emre: Why Do We Have To Choose One Or The Other?

Imagine not being able to love both Steven Gerrard and Xabi Alonso at the same time. Or Sami Hyypia and Jamie Carragher. That would be mad, wouldn't it? Bizarrely, however, this is the position we find ourselves in with Liverpool’s current midfield generals Georginio Wijnaldum and Emre Can - two brilliant but hugely contrasting footballers. Given the tribal nature of the modern fan, a fair chunk of supporters seem to either be on Team Gini or Team Emre, and nothing …
James Milner: The Natural

James Milner: The Natural

“I am a Liverpool player and what the manager asks me to do I will do. Ultimately, if he thinks that is the best thing for the team then I will do it.” James Milner, August, 2016.
There it is. The quote that, for me, cements the fact that what we have in our experienced, tireless and ever-willing number seven is something to be treasured and lauded. I can’t imagine many other players being so ready to shift …
