Let's Make Anfield a Fortress Again

Let's Make Anfield a Fortress Again

There may not be any cup glory heading in the direction of Anfield this season, but there’s still the chance of making it into the top four.  If Liverpool are to make it into the Champions League, form at Anfield must improve. It’s time to make Anfield a fortress again. That did actually look to be the case earlier in the season when the Reds were able to chalk up win after win. The first twelve league and cup ties …
Leicester City Await For Liverpool: How Nervous Are You?

Leicester City Await For Liverpool: How Nervous Are You?

First, an acknowledgement - every game between now and season's end, the whole baker's dozen, will be dubbed HUGE. If Jürgen Klopp's Redmen go on a winning run, the potential for comparative success will drive the hysteria. If they are patchy, the need for players and coach to PROVE THEIR WORTH AND AVOID THE SUMMER AXE will create a furore around each fixture. Only in the unlikely event of utter capitulation in successive weeks will the enormity of each match …
How Alberto Moreno Could Help Break Buses

How Alberto Moreno Could Help Break Buses

It must be said, Liverpool have been on and off lately. That’s putting it rather mildly. To have such fantastic showings against Chelsea and Spurs, and then to produce…whatever THAT was against Wolverhampton and Hull; it’s indicative of a side with a fantastic plan A – one that gets the better of most teams who want the ball, but without a proper plan B. Of course; the idea that every football team necessarily needs a plan B when things aren’t …
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 …
What to do with Roberto Firmino if Liverpool sign a new striker

What to do with Roberto Firmino if Liverpool sign a new striker

There's been a lot of talk recently surrounding Roberto Firmino and whether the versatile Brazilian attacker is clinical enough in front of goal. There are arguments to be made from both sides of the fence. The truth is he can be hit-and-miss but fortunately for us we aren't overly reliant on him scoring every single game. He doesn't need to hit 30 goals. If he manages it then it's a bonus but the Liverpool system doesn't hinge on him going …
The Positive Realism Of Jürgen Klopp

The Positive Realism Of Jürgen Klopp

In the tragi-comic dystopia that passes for the 21st century, maintaining a world-view that is both realistic and positive is quite the mental and emotional workout. The gloomier types amongst us often claim realism for themselves and, quite understandably, given the hellish state of the planet, they insist that positivity is the preserve of the naive. However, since it was just an adolescent column with a dream of the big-time, Latest News has always tried to keep the two plates …
Liverpool's Formidable Front-Six Is Back In Business

Liverpool's Formidable Front-Six Is Back In Business

The way in which Sadio Mane tore Tottenham to shreds in that first-half at Anfield truly was a sight to behold. Liverpool’s returning hero was almost unplayable, scoring twice and coming very close to notching another couple before half-time. It was an individual performance that perfectly highlighted what the Reds have been missing in Mane’s absence, during the most horrendous January in recent memory. They didn’t look the same attacking force without his pace, movement, end product, and his mere …
Breaking down the Sum of Liverpool's Parts - Part 2

Breaking down the Sum of Liverpool's Parts - Part 2

Any back-line - let alone the back-five of Liverpool's - will face adversities in the form of the high initial press in trying to lay the foundation for attacks. Jürgen Klopp's system for Liverpool works in a multitude of ways in order to overcome these adversities as mentioned in Part 1 here, but nevertheless, football is still a team game. It goes without saying that the five players in the aforementioned positions - both centre-backs, the full-backs, as well as the …
Is Liverpool's La Manga Break A Good Thing?

Is Liverpool's La Manga Break A Good Thing?

You know it's a slow news day when the official website is running an article which is essentially John Aldridge saying that holidays are great and trips away help with team bonding and morale. The ex-Red goal-poacher reckons the training camp in La Manga is "a really good idea" and the time can be used for working "some finer things that maybe we've fallen short of, especially in the last month or two, some fresh ideas," or training, as it's …
How Gini Put on a Magic Show against Spurs

How Gini Put on a Magic Show against Spurs

"Yeah, but what does he actually do? We paid £25million for a quicker Joe Allen, didn't we? There's no output, he misses sitters and he's pretty safe on the ball." This was a perpetual argument/debate earlier on in the season when it became apparent that Gini Wijnaldum wasn't going to fulfill the expectations so many had of him made he made the trip South to join Liverpool from Newcastle United. Wijnaldum arrived at Anfield in the summer with it all to …
