Why Alberto Moreno Shouldn’t be Liverpool’s Second Choice Left-Back

Why Alberto Moreno Shouldn’t be Liverpool’s Second Choice Left-Back

Despite a strong start to the season last time out, Alberto Moreno finds himself as Liverpool’s second choice left-back - largely through no fault of his own. Our flying Scotsman, Andy Robertson, has been everything we’ve dreamt our left-back would be for the past six years. He’s solid defensively, positionally sound and poses a real threat going forward. His link-up play with the likes of Sadio Mane, James Milner and Roberto Firmino is brilliant. Although Robertson has been superb since …
Liverpool’s ‘Misfits’ 90 Minutes Away From Becoming Legends

Liverpool’s ‘Misfits’ 90 Minutes Away From Becoming Legends

Liverpool are in the Champions League final. Just keep thinking about that. The Champions League final - the biggest match in club football - and Liverpool are in it, in their first season back in the competition since 2014/15. It is a genuinely staggering achievement and one that Jurgen Klopp merits endless plaudits for masterminding. But how has this been possible, considering these Liverpool players are such a bunch of frauds? What kind of sorcery is going on here? Because …
When in Rome: What's Your Red Travel Style?

When in Rome: What's Your Red Travel Style?

The home leg against Roma brought with it tragic stories that you never want associated with a football match. The terrible consequence is that many Liverpool supporters either will avoid the trip to Rome or won't be able to enjoy it because they'll be on a alert. Liverpool, Roma and UEFA are meeting to address security concerns in Italy after a 53 year old Red, Sean Cox, was assaulted by Roma fans and left in very serious condition since …
Liverpool Must Avoid Summer Repeat Of 2002, 2009 & 2014

Liverpool Must Avoid Summer Repeat Of 2002, 2009 & 2014

What do the summers of 2002, 2009 and 2014 all have in common? Liverpool ballsed up every one, that's what. On those three occasions, the Reds had a wonderful chance of kicking on after near-title-winning campaigns, only to come crashing back down to reality after recruiting poorly and allowing rivals to pull clear again. Gerard Houllier started off the trend 16 years ago, after a fantastic Arsenal team were forced to win their remaining 13 matches to clinch the Premier …
Liverpool’s Young Full-backs Produce a Performance for the Ages

Liverpool’s Young Full-backs Produce a Performance for the Ages

This time last year, imagine being told that Trent Alexander-Arnold and Andrew Robertson would be starring in a Champions League quarter-final for Liverpool. It would have felt ludicrous. The former was still an 18-year-old who had made just 10 appearances for the Reds, and a fully fit Nathaniel Clyne was a nailed-on starter. Nobody had him pencilled in to be a regular so soon. Robertson, meanwhile, was on the verge of relegation with Hull City, and despite being a rare …
Andy Robertson: Mr. Consistent Impressing For Liverpool Again

Andy Robertson: Mr. Consistent Impressing For Liverpool Again

During last summer in which Liverpool did some fine business for the long-term, from the unparalleled brilliance of Mohamed Salah to the utility of Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, there is one man that has been the unsung hero through all of this - Andy Robertson. When Robertson was signed from Hull City last summer for £8 million with Kevin Stewart going the other way, his arrival came at the expense of very little fanfare. Despite being a rare source of light in …
Key Stats from Mo Salah's Mighty Reds Win 5-0 vs Watford

Key Stats from Mo Salah's Mighty Reds Win 5-0 vs Watford

Liverpool steamrollered Watford 5-0, with Mo Salah turning up the heat on a bitterly cold evening at Anfield. But as Liverpool moved further clear of Chelsea, what were the key stats? The Mo Salah Show There’s only one place to start. What a man. What a player. Mo’s first hat-trick for Liverpool, the first Premier League hat-trick anyone has scored under Jürgen Klopp, and the first time someone has scored four goals in a game for us since You Know …
Don't Look Now - The Reds are Coming!

Don't Look Now - The Reds are Coming!

On the recent Molby on the Spot podcast on AI Pro, Trev Downey discussed the recent feel-good factor at Anfield with ex-professional and Liverpool legend Jan Molby. Trev asked Molby if he had ever scored a no-look goal or a performed a no-look pass:
"I think I might have done a no-look pass without it ever being fashionable in the days we played. I guess we did have a couple of, you know games, where you are just completely in …
Has Robertson solved LFC's Left-Back riddle?

Has Robertson solved LFC's Left-Back riddle?

The only player who will give Mo Salah any competition for signing of the season will be our fullback Andy Robertson. The £8 million theft from Hull has been coming on in leaps and bounds in recent weeks, seemingly cementing his name in the team sheet despite the return of Alberto Moreno. Robertson created two clear cut chances against West Ham, bringing his total up to five for the season. That is only topped by Azpilicueta, Walker and Holebas, despite …
Red Hot Reds Have Transcended The Fab Four

Red Hot Reds Have Transcended The Fab Four

It was rather telling that after a game in which all three of Liverpool’s front three scored – taking them to a total of 66 goals between them – none of the conversation was about how good Salah, Firmino and Mané were. So I’m going to start this article with that bit. Because they were all very good against West Ham and indeed have been phenomenal all season. Bobby was all flicks and tricks, passing brilliantly and putting the ball …
