Milner - The Answer To LFC's Midfield Woes?

Milner - The Answer To LFC's Midfield Woes?

When James Milner was announced in the starting line-up for Liverpool’s game against Maribor, my initial reaction was something along the lines of: “Oh cool, Milner’s playing, we’ve not seen him since the Burnley game.” I like Milner, think he’s a decent option and the team was pretty solid so no complaints from me. Predictably though, there was an almost instant backlash from the gathered Liverpool fans, as how dare Klopp start Milner ahead of the far more deserving Alex …
An Oasis of Goals in a Tough Campaign - Maribor 0 Liverpool 7

An Oasis of Goals in a Tough Campaign - Maribor 0 Liverpool 7

Following the demolition of Maribor a litany of caveats attempted to bring the stratospheric Reds back to earth. They’re a ‘glorified pub team,’ are ‘easily the worst side Liverpool will play this season’ and ‘well, if you they can’t beat them …’ It would difficult to argue with some of those words. Maribor were poor and how they failed a gazumping by Sevilla and Spartak is beyond me. Their unerring ability to fall for the same trick every time was …
If anyone can, Emre Can - Analysing Can's performance vs United

If anyone can, Emre Can - Analysing Can's performance vs United

Against United, we saw the perfect example of why player performance needs to be analysed from two sides - 'on the ball' plus 'off the ball'. Emre Can's display at Anfield on Saturday was outstanding. If you don't believe me, then please read on. On the Ball Can had 72 touches against United. This was the 5th highest number of 'on the ball' possessions after Henderson, Lovren, Matip and Moreno. For all of his involvement, Can was only dispossessed twice …
Goretzka's Pro-Active Approach Makes Him An Ideal Signing For Liverpool

Goretzka's Pro-Active Approach Makes Him An Ideal Signing For Liverpool

There’s been a lot of rumours floating about in recent weeks and few seem to be making as much noise as Leon Goretzka to Liverpool. With 12 months remaining on his contract, the Schalke midfielder is being scouted left, right and centre as attentions slowly begin to turn to the January window. Despite securing the services of Naby Keita for the 2018 season, Jurgen Klopp’s side could do with midfield reinforcements in January, with a lack of ingenuity and creativity …
Observations from an easy Liverpool win in Slovenia

Observations from an easy Liverpool win in Slovenia

Ah, that was nice, wasn't it? When was the last time Liverpool played and nails weren't being bitten in the minutes leading up to full-time? It was just one of those nights in Slovenia as the Reds (Weird Oranges?) put seven past a sorry Maribor. The nails were being bitten for about four minutes. Once Bobby Firmino put Liverpool up by a goal, there was really only one way the match was heading. One more goal from Firmino, a couple …
Player Ratings as Liverpool Destroy Maribor

Player Ratings as Liverpool Destroy Maribor

Well, that was more like it. Liverpool have been left frustrated time and time again over the past few weeks, with poor finishing and individual errors costing them dear in both the Premier League and Champions League. However, that wasn't the case on Tuesday evening as Jurgen Klopp's side delivered a stomping away performance to record the highest away win in Europe. Putting seven goals past Maribor, The Reds were simply unplayable going forward with the usual suspects of Philippe …
Maribor 0 - 7 Liverpool: Seven in Slovenia for Rampant Reds!

Maribor 0 - 7 Liverpool: Seven in Slovenia for Rampant Reds!

The Details Date: 17/10/17 Venue: Stadion Ljudski vrt, Maribor, Slovenia Background After opening the group stages with two consecutive draws, in games that they really should have won, Liverpool needed to stop sharing the spoils. The Reds were in danger of losing out on the vital top spot to Sevilla if they didn't pick up their form soon. One win in eight in all competitions for Klopp's men meant that this trip to Slovenia could not be taken lightly. Maribor were …
Red Rant: What Are Liverpool Building?

Red Rant: What Are Liverpool Building?

Imagine you’re building a new house.  You’re not physically building it of course, but you’ve hired professionals to do it.  A few months in you stop by the property to see how things are progressing and you find the project far behind schedule. You ask the contractor to explain why the electricity doesn’t work.  He says the electrical guy doesn’t know how to run wiring, but he does know how to set up a surround sound system. Well, what about the plumbing?  Well, he …
Joe Gomez - A Name For The Future Or An Arrival?

Joe Gomez - A Name For The Future Or An Arrival?

There comes a day in every player’s career where they have to stop being the young lad, the starlet with potential and step up to the big arena. If you look down the list at those who have started with a reputation but have failed to build on it, it can make a sad read. Anthony Le Tallec, Florent Sinama-Pongollle, Neil Mellor and arguably Jon Flanagan have all had greatness thrust upon them but somehow fallen at the final step. …
Tactical Breakdown of Liverpool's Draw with Man Utd

Tactical Breakdown of Liverpool's Draw with Man Utd

This is always the most nerve-racking match of the season. It's certainly a match that gets to me: I can barely eat on the morning of a match against United. But after two back-to-back drab draws at Anfield, maybe it's time to reassess if it's worth it all... That's not to say there was not much riding on the game though, with Mané out, Liverpool stuck in a rut and both Manchester clubs totting up and impressive number of points, …
