Was Jordan Henderson the Balance Weight for Liverpool FC?

Was Jordan Henderson the Balance Weight for Liverpool FC?

It’s true what they say you know. Absence really does make the heart grow fonder. I’ve been pretty vocal in the past about my concerns surrounding Jordan Henderson operating in the number 6 role for Liverpool but it’s clear as day he’s been missed in recent matches. In games against Sunderland, Plymouth (admittedly with a shadow starting XI) and Southampton the midfield have looked lethargic, pedestrian and predictable. The complete opposite of what we’ve come to expect from a Jurgen Klopp …
Manchester United vs Liverpool Preview: Old Rivalry, New Perspective

Manchester United vs Liverpool Preview: Old Rivalry, New Perspective

Liverpool make a short trip up the M6 on Sunday to face Manchester United in one of the biggest fixtures in the English football calendar. With United having experienced something of a fall from grace in recent years, the game takes on a slightly rarer meaning with the Red Devils, majorly in-form, chasing the Reds, with Jürgen Klopp's side looking to put further distance between themselves and the team their fans love to hate. THE DETAILS Match: Manchester United vs …
Karius: We Can Turn It Around

Karius: We Can Turn It Around

Instagram enthusiast Dejan Lovren took to his preferred social media platform to wish Emre Can a happy 23rd birthday today. For once, the Croat was not driving at the same time and his heartfelt sentiment was accompanied by the inevitable selfie with the German. "Happy birthday, my brother," Lovren gushed. "Think that you're a top player in my eyes." Without doubt, the post will have enraged the angry ants that swarm Liverpool fan forums looking for opportunities to be outraged, but for this writer …
Klopp: Reds Will Strike Back

Klopp: Reds Will Strike Back

"We will strike back, we will be a different team, a different side, everything will be different at Anfield. So, for us, it's still possible to go to Wembley, and that's the target." Jürgen Klopp
On balance, it felt like the worst 90 minutes of Jürgen Klopp's time at the Anfield helm. Obviously, the pain of witnessing the impotent, and often incompetent, staggering about of many of our established stars was exacerbated by having the unfolding shambles bathed in the greenish yellow …
Stick or Twist? | Liverpool's January Window

Stick or Twist? | Liverpool's January Window

There have been huge developments at the club over the last year or so, sparked by the arrival of Jurgen Klopp. In the midst of his first full season in charge, the Reds are the closest challengers to current Premier League leaders Chelsea, taking a total of 44 points from 20 games and are just five points behind Conte’s side. Despite claims that there is little value in the January window, Liverpool have proven in recent times that gems can be found …
Bet with your head, not with your heart is the key to footie success

Bet with your head, not with your heart is the key to footie success

Bookies always see a surge in customer activity around the time of big football tournaments. The likes of the World Cup or start of the Premier League brings in the casual, or patriotic, punter, ready to back their hard-earned cash on England, Australia, Liverpool or wherever their loyalties lie. Sometime this may work out with unexpected results – just ask any Leicester City fan – but often the ‘patriotic punt’ falls flat; just think about how much the bookies have …
Observations from Liverpool's Disappointing Defeat at Southampton

Observations from Liverpool's Disappointing Defeat at Southampton

A defeat in a semi-final isn't the best way to warm up for a trip to Old Trafford. Want to know what's worse though? A poor performance just a few days before travelling to a United side who can be described as rampant after nine consecutive wins. Klopp named a strong side but it just didn't click for a variety of reasons. That performance, coupled with the fact James Pearce hinted at no January business, will just exacerbate things and …
Lallana Left The Comfort Zone

Lallana Left The Comfort Zone

I've always been fascinated by comfort zones. It's probably a lot to do with my ongoing self-doubt. I know they get a bad press but I'm fascinated as to the kind of calm and ease that residing in a zone of comfort would bring. Imagine not questioning oneself endlessly or simply being content with oneself, warts and all. Isn't that the kind of zen self-acceptance we're all supposed to aspire to? Don't the life-coaching gurus preach such blissed out forbearance of …
Sturridge Could Be Perfect For Klopp

Sturridge Could Be Perfect For Klopp

Listening to Jürgen Klopp speak about Daniel Sturridge is intriguing. Anyone who's ever had to manage people at any level will find themselves brimful of empathy for the affable German when he is asked to respond to questions about his gifted but often absent striker. People are more fragile than they like to believe and as the person entrusted with eliciting the best possible performance from someone, one must remember that. The trick is to disguise one's frustration, accentuate the positive …
Why Man United Are The Stuff Of Nightmares For A Southern Red

Why Man United Are The Stuff Of Nightmares For A Southern Red

January 24th, 1999. It’s a Sunday afternoon that still fills me with horror, and always will. I was turning 12 years of age the following day, and with Sky Sports still not a part of my household, my Dad took me to the pub to watch Liverpool’s FA Cup fourth round clash with Man United, as a pre-birthday treat. Not only did we miss Michael Owen head the Reds into a very early lead at Old Trafford (the traffic in …
