Lallana Trumps Them All Says Molby

Lallana Trumps Them All Says Molby

Today, as the people of the United States prepare for the inauguration of a dangerously unhinged vulgarian and the good folk of Britain brace themselves before going through an exit door marked 'Are You Absolutely Sure?' the rest of the world seems to be increasingly riven by conflict and chaos. 2017: it's going great. Amidst such all-pervasive upheaval, it is hardly surprising that within the comparatively insignificant world of football, some seem to be losing their bearings. Bad decisions and …
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 …
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 …
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 …
No Mane - Can We Cope?

No Mane - Can We Cope?

Liverpool have enjoyed an impressive season so far and Sadio Mane has been at the heart of it. Few could have envisioned the magnitude of his impact when he completed a £30million summer switch from Southampton. All the questions that were initially raised about the investment have been well and truly answered, with the forward slotting in perfectly to Klopp’s side. Featuring in all but one of Liverpool’s 20 Premier League games, Mane has registered nine goals and five assists …
EFL Cup Semi-Final Preview: Reds Look to Bounce Back

EFL Cup Semi-Final Preview: Reds Look to Bounce Back

It has not been the best start to 2017 for Jurgen Klopp's Liverpool. In the 2 games that the Reds have played, they have had two draws. The first one - a 2-2 stalemate at Sunderland - might be excusable, given that it kicked off less than 48 hours after a taxing game against Manchester City. But Sunday's goalless draw in the FA Cup against Plymouth Argyle is inexcusable. Even with the much-changed team, Liverpool should be beating Plymouth. So, …
Liverpool's Lost Talent XI : 2012-2016

Liverpool's Lost Talent XI : 2012-2016

Much has been said about Brendan Rodgers' time at Anfield. He was often lauded for his development of talent, both by the press and by himself. This week's news that Tiago Ilori is likely to move on to Reading   had me thinking, how much talent did the Northern Irishman waste or ignore during his tenure? Yes, Raheem Sterling and Luis Suarez become household names, with the latter almost single handedly winning Liverpool the league. But looking back at the …
How the Liverpool press Nullified Manchester City

How the Liverpool press Nullified Manchester City

The buzzword surrounding Jurgen Klopp's appointment as Liverpool manger in October 2015 was pressing. Gegenpress this, Gegenpress that, counter-press them here and counter-press them there. Basically, Klopp was supposed to turn up and blitz the Premier League with his high pressing, all action, heavy metal football. When it transpired that this wasn't going to be the case many in the media felt a little cheated. The German maverick wasn't playing ball. To them it was like receiving a toy for …

Sadio Mané's Absence and Liverpool FC's Options

Sadio Mané's Absence and Liverpool FC's Options

Sadio Mané has been a surprise blessing for many Liverpool fans. Despite his inconsistencies from past seasons still being seen in shades thus far, the Senegalese wide-player has been a great addition to Jürgen Klopp’s Liverpool side. Needless to say, he’s gone beyond proving himself to the Anfield faithful, many of whom had doubts of varying degrees with consideration to his price tag and especially given that he’s yet another Southampton recruit. In the next couple of weeks, Mane heads …
