Terrific Trident, and a Sensational Scouser - Reds Thrash Bournemouth 3-0

Terrific Trident, and a Sensational Scouser - Reds Thrash Bournemouth 3-0

Any suggestions that the foot might be taken off the Premier League pedal were emphatically blown away at Anfield as Liverpool got themselves a routine 3-0 win against Bournemouth. Each of that fantastic front three found themselves on the scoresheet, as Eddie Howe's side were put to the sword by a Liverpool side who really didn't have to get out of second gear for the most part. The Reds have now scored 121 goals in all competitions this season, the …
Liverpool Player Ratings From Cherries Crushing

Liverpool Player Ratings From Cherries Crushing

Three points closer to more night's like that one against Manchester City, is how I'm viewing it. An afternoon that will be quickly forgotten but one that Liverpool need more of, as they beat Bournemouth 3-0. A day for the goal charts as Firmino gets his 25th of the season, overshadowed somewhat by Salah's 40th. Not a bad time to be a Red. Standout figure at the back Loris Karius (6): Had literally nothing to do first half apart from …
Alexander-Arnold's Coming of Age

Alexander-Arnold's Coming of Age

City’s tactics over the 180-minute contest were obvious. The outcome was not. Crystal Palace clearly identified Alexander-Arnold as a weakness; diagonal balls were launched in behind to allow Wilfried Zaha a clear one-on-one against the 19-year-old in the first forty-five minutes. Inevitably, that’s where they got their goal; a lovely weighted through ball saw Trent caught out of position, with Zaha running through before being clattered inside the area by Karius. 1-0 to Palace, and questions rightfully asked over Trent. …
Liverpool Draw AS Roma In Champions League Semi-Final

Liverpool Draw AS Roma In Champions League Semi-Final

The 5-1 aggregate win over Manchester City would've made even the most sceptic of Liverpool fans dream - could this be our year? Friday's draw was certainly kind, with Liverpool matched against AS Roma for the semi-final of the Champions League. Avoiding European heavyweights in Bayern Munich and Real Madrid, Jurgen Klopp's side have a very real chance of making it all the way to the final. History's certainly on their side. Liverpool's last competitive game against Roma was in …
Sustainable Progression Clear to See as Liverpool March on in Europe

Sustainable Progression Clear to See as Liverpool March on in Europe

After the resounding, comprehensive display that was Liverpool's scorching 5-1 aggregate win over Manchester City, it seems unfair to spend my time talking about 'sustainability' and 'mature growth', but I'm going to anyway. You'll hear and read many impressive things in the coming days, weeks, months and perhaps even years about the tie, but what it showed me was that Liverpool's natural progression under Jurgen Klopp is under no signs of slowing down. The Reds have seen too often in …
Liverpool v Bournemouth Preview - Key Battles

Liverpool v Bournemouth Preview - Key Battles

A UEFA Champions League semi-final spot has been sealed, but there is no time for Liverpool to rest on their laurels. The Reds welcome Bournemouth to Anfield for the late kickoff on Saturday, as they look to strengthen their grip on a place inside the Premier League's top 4. The Cherries have drawn their last two games 2-2, with a last-gasp Joshua King goal giving them a share of the spoils against Crystal Palace in their last outing. Liverpool didn't …
Manchester City 1-2 Liverpool (1-5): A Tactical Breakdown

Manchester City 1-2 Liverpool (1-5): A Tactical Breakdown

When Liverpool lost 5-0 at the Etihad earlier this season, I mentioned in my breakdown that typing in the scoreline just felt wrong, but there is something immensely gratifying about typing out the aggregate scoreline for the Champions League tie: 5-1. I might even do it again. 5-1. Lovely. Anyway, there are five minutes until kick-off, and I’m desperately searching through Twitter. Pep has named two wingers, three attacking midfielders, one full-back, two centre-backs, a striker, a defensive midfielder and …
James Milner - Half Man, Half Machine

James Milner - Half Man, Half Machine

It's April 5th, 2017. James Milner makes another start in the Liverpool lineup in his unfamiliar left-back role. Liverpool draw 2-2 at home to Bournemouth and everything was a bit flat. Prospects of Milner playing in central midfield in this Liverpool lineup are seemingly nothing but a pipe dream. Jump forward a little over a year and James Milner is captaining this Liverpool side in the quarter-finals of the Champions League in what, in my opinion, was a man of …
Dejan Lovren Silences Critics on Memorable Night in Manchester

Dejan Lovren Silences Critics on Memorable Night in Manchester

For someone who has worked his way to the top of his profession, Dejan Lovren doesn’t half receive endless abuse. He is an international footballer who plays for Liverpool, which in my eyes, makes you fairly decent at what you do for a living. I am fully aware that it's all relative, and that he should not be treated like a mere mortal who plays a bit of seven-a-side now and again, but the flack he receives is still ludicrously …
Klopp, Liverpool, and How Emotion Conquered Perfection

Klopp, Liverpool, and How Emotion Conquered Perfection

Ah, the word “passion.” Somewhat overused in the day and age of exposition, Liverpool Football Club has something of a connection to the idea of pure, unadulterated passion in the vast landscape that is football. Everything is magnified tenfold, because of its relation to everything else in the football sphere. So, when people marry the word “passion” with Liverpool; the fabled atmosphere, the manager, what are they actually saying? What use is passion, really, in a game so dominated by …
