Liverpool 1-1 Chelsea: A Fair Result?

Liverpool 1-1 Chelsea: A Fair Result?

Liverpool's one-all draw with Chelsea was a disappointing result to take given the scoreline in the 84th minute. The manner of Willian's goal, a floated cross which found its way into the top corner, only compounded the fans' disappointment, after surrendering a three goal lead, away from home, in midweek. The discussion about the game itself begun well before kick-off, with Sadio Mané and Roberto Firmino rested on the bench, with Sturridge and Oxlade-Chamberlain brought in, whilst Milner was also, surprisingly, …
Champions League knockout stage could suit inconsistent Liverpool

Champions League knockout stage could suit inconsistent Liverpool

Although we’re not yet in December, the Premier League title already looks destined for the Etihad Stadium.  Realistically, barring an unlikely collapse from Manchester City, any Liverpool title aspirations are already over for another season. Those hopes are reflected in current best odds of 66-1 being available at Bet Victor on a first domestic league title for the Reds since 1990 and you would have to be donning some seriously sepia-tinted glasses to invest anything on that wait ending this …
Liverpool Life Lessons and Drunken Expectations

Liverpool Life Lessons and Drunken Expectations

On a different continent in what seems like a different lifetime now I was a frat guy at an American university. We drank a lot. Nothing remarkable about that, but one particular day those of us new to the fraternity decided we would show the older guys how frat we were and went after it. At some point I stepped outside to relieve myself and realised that I couldn't stand anymore without the assistance of a nearby fencepost. Two of …
Liverpool 1 Chelsea 1 - Flukes and Rebukes

Liverpool 1 Chelsea 1 - Flukes and Rebukes

Sometimes there are fluke goals. Sometimes the opposition are just better than you. Sometimes you can be unlucky. The fury about the draw with Chelsea has matched that of the second half in Seville which seems a little unfair. Chelsea have the best centre-back in the country in Cesar Azpilicueta, a monster of a player in N’golo Kante and that Belgian lad, who seems to do well at our ground. Liverpool don’t have any of those things (though Coutinho can …
The Unfair Alberto Moreno Witch-Hunt Returns

The Unfair Alberto Moreno Witch-Hunt Returns

First things first: I have been one of Alberto Moreno’s biggest critics over the last few years. The horrendous performance in the Europa League final essentially cost Liverpool a trophy - he was not the sole reason for the defeat, but the key reason for it - and too many lapses in concentration and a perceived lack of focus have irritated the life out of me. That footage of him flipping a bottle on the sidelines last season, instead of …
Observations as Liverpool and Chelsea Share The Spoils

Observations as Liverpool and Chelsea Share The Spoils

Liverpool and Chelsea played out a 1-1 draw on Saturday evening, with Mohamed Salah's second-half goal cancelled out by a rather fortuitous effort from Willian. Here are the observations from the match. Mohamed Salah shines against former-club Here we are again; another Liverpool game, another goal for Mohamed Salah. The Egyptian winger produced another impressive display for the Reds, showing incisive movement throughout the ninety minutes to cause some real problems for his former-club. During his time at Chelsea, Salah …

Liverpool Player Ratings From Chelsea Draw

Liverpool Player Ratings From Chelsea Draw

Disappointing to once more throw away a lead, but given the team selection and crazy run of fixtures ahead of Liverpool, denying Chelsea a win whilst resting Mane and Firmino may well prove positive in the long run. Here's how the Reds rated at Anfield. Simon Mignolet (6): Very solid from corners and looked like he was going to pick up a clean sheet before Willian intervened. Hard to blame him for such a freak goal but some may suggest …

The Souness Years - In Their Own Words (Part 5) - The Unforgivable Interview

This is the fifth instalment of our Souness Years series, looking behind-the-scenes of what went on at Liverpool during the Souness era of the early 90s.  You can find the first four parts here: Part 1 Part 2 Part 3 Part 4 RONNIE WHELAN: Dicks and Ruddock were bought because Souey wanted strong, hard men in his team. And that’s fine – Souey was a strong, hard man too. But he was a top-class ball-player as well. JAN MOLBY: As a …
The Sevilla Shambles - What went wrong for Liverpool?

The Sevilla Shambles - What went wrong for Liverpool?

So it was about two days ago I considered a return to writing, after a long spell out (no ACL injury thankfully). It's been a good while since I wrote regularly, so had the usual questions of "Can I still write in a semi-decent, readable way?" and "Will anyone actually give a shit as to what I'm saying?" so I guess we're about to answer those two questions in due course. Now, this isn't going to be structured in a  …
