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

The Mo Salah Show There’s only one place to start. What a man. What a player.

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 …
Observations as Liverpool Cruise Past 100 Goal Tally in Ultimate Style

Observations as Liverpool Cruise Past 100 Goal Tally in Ultimate Style

Liverpool cruised to a routine win against West Ham, moving up to second place in the Premier League with Klopp's in-form front three all enhancing their already impressive goal tallies. Emre Can was the man to get the 100th goal of the campaign, capitalising on a pin-point cross from Mohamed Salah to steer home. From then on it should've been a cakewalk for The Reds, but a lack of cutting edge in the final third ensured just one goal separated …
Has Klopp Found the Perfect Balance with his Full-Backs?

Has Klopp Found the Perfect Balance with his Full-Backs?

Since Nathaniel Clyne suffered a serious back injury in pre-season there has been a lot of uncertainty as to who Klopp will view as his first choice full-backs. Would he favour Alberto Moreno or new signing Andrew Robertson at left-back and on the right-hand side would he opt for the more attacking Trent Alexander-Arnold or more defensive minded Joe Gomez? With Klopp recognising Robertson would need time to settle into a new system Moreno was given the opportunity to prove …
What James Milner brings to Liverpool's midfield against a low block defence

What James Milner brings to Liverpool's midfield against a low block defence

After two terrible defeats in the space of six days and the Reds failing to add to their squad in the January transfer window, Liverpool fans were understandably extremely concerned about how the rest of the season would pan out. One of the most pressing issues was the team's lack of creativity in midfield, without the magician, Phil Coutinho, how were the Reds going to break down teams who play with a low block? Gini Wijnaldum has rarely been effective …
