Table-Gazing: Where Will Liverpool Finish?

Table-Gazing: Where Will Liverpool Finish?

Sometimes, the worst thing you can do is look at the league table. The very worst. In fact, because I care about you, lovely reader, don't look at the league table. This morning, unnaturally early, Latest News gave what was supposed to be a brief, fact-checking glance at the Barclay's Premier standing of the Redmen. There was a column to be written and it's only polite to be passably informed before wittering away at you. Fifteen angst-ridden minutes later, a …
Have the Red Men thrown away their chances in the league this season?

Have the Red Men thrown away their chances in the league this season?

Back in mid-November 2016, the Mighty Reds were widely tipped for Premier League glory this season. Having scored 40 goals in 14 games, we were having our best start in 121 years. Fast-forward to 2017 and defeats at the hands of Sunderland and Leicester City and it looks like we won’t even make the top four at this rate. Jurgen Klopp is right to say that inconsistency is our problem. He’s also correct in saying that this inconsistency “doesn’t make …
Could Mario Gotze play in the Liverpool midfield?

Could Mario Gotze play in the Liverpool midfield?

It was going to happen eventually. It was just inevitable so long as Jurgen Klopp was in charge but I doubt many envisaged it happening quite so soon after being diagnosed with a metabolic disorder. Mario Gotze is once again being linked with a move to Anfield just six months after rejecting a move to join Klopp’s revolution on Merseyside. The 24 year old was a target for his former manager as he looked to reunite with the player he …
Desert Island Reds: My Dream Liverpool XI

Desert Island Reds: My Dream Liverpool XI

My Desert Island Line-Up is made up of players who have represented Liverpool from 1989, when I first started supporting the club, to the present day. The formation is 4-3-3: GK Pepe Reina Liverpool have had some truly dodgy goalkeepers in the past 28 years (David James, Sander Westerveld, Jerzy Dudek to name but three) so any who was even half consistent would get into this team. Reina was more than that. Not only a hugely reliable presence for the …
Klopp Admits Frustration With Rollercoaster Reds

Klopp Admits Frustration With Rollercoaster Reds

Before Saturday's kick-off and throughout much of the match, Latest News found the rare leisure time to indulge fully in the online experience of the foreign Red. Essentially that boils down to scanning Twitter relentlessly and resisting the urge to berate the stunningly huge amount of gloom merchants who seem to positively thrive on the churlish and malign practice of belittling the manager, the players and also you, should you posit a less hateful theory. Needless to say, the absence …
Liverpool's Plan B: Tactical Tweaking of 4-2-3-1?

Liverpool's Plan B: Tactical Tweaking of 4-2-3-1?

It’s not exactly been the best start to 2017 for Liverpool, with their dismal January form continuing for much of February. An impressive win against Premier League rivals Tottenham ought to have provided a platform with which to build on heading into the business end of the season. However, Liverpool once again failed to impress against relegation threatened opposition, with their performance almost an exact replica of previous defeats to Swansea, Wolves and Bournemouth. Once again, it was a tail …
Which Liverpool players are playing for their futures?

Which Liverpool players are playing for their futures?

Following last Monday evening's defeat against Leicester City at the King Power stadium, Jurgen Klopp stated everyone was playing for their futures from now on. Liverpool's fall from grace in 2017 has been devastating having picked up just three victories since the turn of the new year. Poor performance after poor performance has put the starting XI under huge criticism and some of the players' positions in the squad have now come under pressure with the summer transfer window looming. But …
Observations from Liverpool's win against Arsenal

Observations from Liverpool's win against Arsenal

Liverpool were back to their Dr Jekyll best in the 3-1 win over Arsenal on Saturday evening. It came in the same week Mr Hyde had made an appearance at the King Power stadium as Leicester vanquished some of their demons and put a dent in our top four challenge. The Reds hosted Arsenal knowing a defeat could leave their Champions League hopes dangling by a thread, but like so often this season they effortlessly brushed aside one of their …
Liverpool's Plan B: Time for the Hipster 3-4-3?

Liverpool's Plan B: Time for the Hipster 3-4-3?

Under Klopp, 2016 was a fantastic year. Goals galore, two cup finals and the development of players such as Roberto Frimino and Adam Lallana. The German tactician started off using a fluid 4-2-3-1/4-1-4-1 formation during the latter months of last season which morphed into an efficient 4-3-3 for the first half of the season. With Can and Henderson never excelling as a two, putting Lallana or Wijnaldum into the mix solidified the midfield and created space for Coutinho's and Firmino’s …
Liverpool 3 Arsenal 1 - Player Ratings

Liverpool 3 Arsenal 1 - Player Ratings

The Robin Hoods of English football are back. Liverpool were well-deserved 3-1 winners at Anfield against an Arsenal side who fought back after the break following what was an abject first half from them. Goals from Roberto Firmino and Sadio Mane gave the Reds a 2-0 lead and Gini Wijnaldum sealed the win for the Reds after Danny Welbeck pulled it back to 2-1 to send the nerves jangling. Here's how each player fared. Simon Mignolet - 6.5 He had precious …
