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 …
The Running Man - Adam Lallana

The Running Man - Adam Lallana

While fatigue will certainly have taken its toll on several Premier League teams during the gruelling Christmas fixtures, one man seems completely unaffected by it all...one Adam Lallana. The England international covered a total of 13.22km in the 2-2 draw with Sunderland, recording 12.88km in the win against Manchester City just two days before. Both distances were the highest ran by any Liverpool player in the Premier League during the Bank Holiday weekend. Despite struggling under Brendan Rodgers’ tutelage, Adam …
Lucas Leaver?

Lucas Leaver?

Earlier today, I wrote for the Latest News section about the divisive figure that is Alberto Moreno but the Spaniard is a mere amateur at dangerously dividing the fan base in comparison with the focus of this evening's scribbles - Lucas Leiva. The affable Brazilian will always have his fans because he is patently a fellow of tremendous character and has done the club redoubtable service over a decade. However, there have been many fans who simply never took to the …
