Nathaniel Clyne: A Competent Defender Who Lacks A Cutting Edge

Nathaniel Clyne: A Competent Defender Who Lacks A Cutting Edge

With Liverpool's season riddled with inconsistencies, it's only normal for some of the personnel to come under fire. Nathaniel Clyne is the latest in a long line of players who have had their futures questioned of late, but is it justified? Joining from Southampton for a fee of £12.5million, the England international has become a regular feature in Jurgen Klopp's side, registering a total of 52 appearances last season. Not only that, the right-back was producing at a consistent level …

Manchester City v Liverpool Preview - Key Battles

Liverpool have back-to-back Premier League wins for the first time in 2017. If ever the Reds needed a boost in confidence ahead of a daunting trip to the Etihad Stadium, the games against Arsenal and Burnley have provided just that. Pep Guardiola's side will be still nursing their wounds from Wednesday's humbling Champions League exit in Monaco. The Spaniard will no doubt be under pressure, as his first season in the English league increasingly threatens to go haywire. City are not …

Mané Happy Returns - Sadio Finally Playing For Klopp

Did you know that Phil Coutinho has a new tattoo of Mickey Mouse on his abs? Or were you aware that Le Bron James, nominal celebrity Red, is very disgruntled at going bald and has almost EIGHT times my country's population following him on Twitter? How about the fact that Ben Woodburn has been called up to the Wales senior squad at 17 years of age?  Maybe you've seen, amidst the talk of a celebratory crest to mark the club's 125th birthday, …
Liverpool's Under-Fire Full-Backs Must Deliver Against Man City's Flying Wingers

Liverpool's Under-Fire Full-Backs Must Deliver Against Man City's Flying Wingers

Few players are less fashionable in the modern game than Nathaniel Clyne and James Milner. In an era when Football Manager, FIFA and statistics-based websites such as Squawka and WhoScored allow any football fans to proclaim themselves experts on any player across Europe, who really cares about two functional English full-backs? The snobbery against British players can become a little tiresome at times - just imagine how much more praise Adam Lallana would receive if he was Spanish - but …
New Ways To Win For Liverpool

New Ways To Win For Liverpool

There isn’t much to be said for getting old. As the years roll by certain truisms land and hit you in the solar plexus. For example, it is looking increasingly unlikely that I'll ever play centre mid for Liverpool. Oh, don’t give me that ‘if you just go to the gym a bit more and stop eating cheese’ nicety, it's just not happening. Liverpool have yet to give a debut to a 48 year old. It's time to let the dream …
More Birthday Blues For The Reds?

More Birthday Blues For The Reds?

Birthdays can be a real source of emotional volatility as one gets older. On the face of it, it's a great blessing to have lasted another year in a world moving at such a distressing pace, in a direction which no longer seems certain, but on the other hand, one is afflicted with terrible and crushing angst about just where one fits in, nowadays. Why is everyone dabbing, for example? What even IS dabbing? Is anyone else cold? Having reached …
Philippe Coutinho Failing In Quest To Be World-Class

Philippe Coutinho Failing In Quest To Be World-Class

What defines world-class? Every football supporter has a different way of seeing it. To some, it is only those truly elite players like Lionel Messi, Cristiano Ronaldo, Luis Suarez and Neymar, while others could name 100 who fit into that bracket. For me, it is someone in and around the top 10 players in the world in their respective position - someone who produces the goods almost every week and rarely hits a genuinely poor spell in form. Manuel Neuer, …
Money Talks For Liverpool FC

Money Talks For Liverpool FC

One evening when my classmates and I were out on the school playing field having a Rounders tournament, our collective attention was grabbed by the sound of approaching helicopter rotors. Now, I should probably mention that the school was a small rural one and the pupils were 80s Irish country kids, so as the whirlybird proceeded to land in the field right next to us, it would be fair to say it caused quite the furore. As it turned out, …
