Here's to You Jordan Henderson - Return of Captain Fantastic

Here's to You Jordan Henderson - Return of Captain Fantastic

The good news keeps on coming for Liverpool FC, Jordan Henderson has returned to training and should be available to play after the international break! The Liverpool captain, who still divides opinion amongst fans and pundits, has been absent since August after he broke a bone in his foot during training. Before the bone break, Henderson had been in and out of the side due to a heel injury and had therefore only played two games for Liverpool this season. …
Adam Lallana: Is His Pressing Enough to Warrant a First-Team Place?

Adam Lallana: Is His Pressing Enough to Warrant a First-Team Place?

Adam Lallana’s a funny one, isn’t he? He throws in a sexy little Cruyff turn one minute and follows it up with a weak shot. He draws gasps from the crowd as often as he does groans. His Liverpool career to date has been the very definition of stop-start, as niggly injuries have struck just as he’s getting a run in the side. However, Jurgen Klopp clearly sees something in the attacking midfielder, who has started in every game the …
Coutinho: Why Confidence and Pressing Matters

Coutinho: Why Confidence and Pressing Matters

The struggles of Philippe Coutinho in recent weeks have been well documented on this website. The diminutive Brazilian hasn't had the best of times since his beautiful long-range winner at Stoke City on the opening day of the season. So what has been the issue for Coutinho? Lack of options in front of him? Lack of players he trusts around him? External factors causing a loss of confidence? Or all of the above? Let's look at the lack of options to …
Bundesliga Goalkeepers That Would Improve Liverpool FC

Bundesliga Goalkeepers That Would Improve Liverpool FC

It’s fair to say David De Gea almost, certainly, single-handily dragged our bitter rivals to that Champions League spot last season, so I guess it wouldn’t be imprudent to slap a heavy investment towards a dominant number one. Whilst newly appointed Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp may well work his magic on some of the fringe players in the squad, it may be prove to be an arduous task to convert Simon Mignolet into the quality required to compete at the …
Comparing Defence and Attack - Klopp Against Rodgers

Comparing Defence and Attack - Klopp Against Rodgers

A lot has been written over the past week or so about what Jurgen Klopp brings to Liverpool and how he compares to the recently departed, not from this Earth, Brendan Rodgers. Their styles have been looked at and analysed, lots of theories have been discussed about how the German messiah may evolve Liverpool into a gegenpressing machine and it's been taken for granted, almost viewed as a given, that Jurgen Klopp will improve Liverpool. The man himself has acknowledged …
The Two Dannys - Sturridge and Ings: Ready Made Strikeforce

The Two Dannys - Sturridge and Ings: Ready Made Strikeforce

Liverpool have had a few prolific partnerships in their history, a few spring to mind instantly with very little thought. John Toshack and Kevin Keegan, Ian Rush and Kenny Dalglish, Robbie Fowler and Michael Owen, Emile Heskey and Michael Owen, Fernando Torres and Steven Gerrard and of course Luis Suarez and Daniel Sturridge. Some were integral in title winning sides, others important in winning European trophies whilst others played a dominant role in Liverpool finishing second and giving us one …
Brendan Rodgers, FSG and Missed Opportunities

Brendan Rodgers, FSG and Missed Opportunities

Liverpool are in limbo. No matter what side of the fence you sit on when it comes to Brendan Rodgers you can't bury your head deep enough in the sand to not see that the club is currently in no man's land. There's no identity. There's no passion, from both players and staff. There's no unity and there's no direction. We're just stagnating in a cesspool of mediocrity. This could've all been very different had the owners, the manager and …
Five Observations from Liverpool vs Norwich

Five Observations from Liverpool vs Norwich

Whilst watching this game against Norwich, I couldn't help but feel a little bit of sadness and sickness as the last number of times we played Norwich, Luis Suarez ran the show. Reminiscence of a greater, more fun Liverpool did not make for a pretty Sunday afternoon, as I laid back and watched highlights from this corresponding fixture two years ago while silently weeping, (which I can safely say, is also caused by the game that just transpired). Nevertheless, I …
Mamadou Sakho - Laying the Foundations

Mamadou Sakho - Laying the Foundations

A friend recently asked if I had a monthly reminder on my phone to put a tweet out about Sakho only having x amount of months left on his current deal. Sad to say I had to cancel that reminder now. Myself and many more Liverpool fans got their wish on Friday when it was announced that Mamadou Sakho had signed a new deal with the club, committing his future to the Reds till 2020. It was welcomed news with …
Liverpool's Apple Pie Defence Lacking Basic Instinct

Liverpool's Apple Pie Defence Lacking Basic Instinct

I should've been mad but that anger and resentment after a humbling loss subsides when it becomes a weekly occurrence, and it has with the Reds as of late. In the last 12 games we've conceded 2 and 3 to Manchester United, 3 to Crystal Palace, 3 to West Ham, 4 to Arsenal and 6 to Stoke City. I'm not used to this as a Liverpool fan. I grew up with Liverpool under Gerard Houllier and Rafa Benitez, we may …
