New Ways To Win For Liverpool

New Ways To Win For Liverpool

There isn’t much to be said for getting old. As the years roll by certain truisms land and hit you in the solar plexus. For example, it is looking increasingly unlikely that I'll ever play centre mid for Liverpool. Oh, don’t give me that ‘if you just go to the gym a bit more and stop eating cheese’ nicety, it's just not happening. Liverpool have yet to give a debut to a 48 year old. It's time to let the dream …
Philippe Coutinho Failing In Quest To Be World-Class

Philippe Coutinho Failing In Quest To Be World-Class

What defines world-class? Every football supporter has a different way of seeing it. To some, it is only those truly elite players like Lionel Messi, Cristiano Ronaldo, Luis Suarez and Neymar, while others could name 100 who fit into that bracket. For me, it is someone in and around the top 10 players in the world in their respective position - someone who produces the goods almost every week and rarely hits a genuinely poor spell in form. Manuel Neuer, …

Rating Liverpool Players' Consistency in 2016-17 - PART TWO

There has been plenty of talk of Liverpool's inconsistencies throughout the 2016-17 campaign. After a hugely impressive start to the season, it's been another disappointing year and what had the potential to be a successful campaign, has turned into an unpredictable final few months. Liverpool have the best success record against teams in the top six and they picked up a number of commanding victories against their rivals at the beginning of the season. Wins against Arsenal and Everton on …
Is Magnificent Mane One Of Liverpool’s Signings Of The Decade?

Is Magnificent Mane One Of Liverpool’s Signings Of The Decade?

With many great Liverpool players, there are often moments that come along that make you realise how special they are. With Steven Gerrard, it was his thunderbolt against Man United at Anfield. For Luis Suarez, it was his incredible assist for Dirk Kurt against the same team. Fernando Torres’ ruthless finish against Chelsea on his home debut made us realise the Reds had a world-class striker in their ranks. You no doubt have other examples that instantly pop into your …
Are Liverpool really THAT bad against the Premier League’s weaker teams?

Are Liverpool really THAT bad against the Premier League’s weaker teams?

Make no bones about it, Liverpool are far better against their top-four rivals than those in the bottom-half of the Premier League. The statistics show that, and we can see with our own eyes that that is the case. The Reds have undoubtedly been poor when a number of so-called lesser teams have stood before them this season, which has proved incredibly frustrating, especially when the title looked achievable at one point. Too often for opposing managers, it has been …
Emre Can shows he still has something to offer the Liverpool midfield

Emre Can shows he still has something to offer the Liverpool midfield

Liverpool's win over Arsenal on Saturday was filled with a lot of standout performances and memorable moments. Sadio Mane was rightly lauded for yet another goal, Roberto Firmino looked back to his best and Adam Lallana was praised for the fact he was practically everywhere throughout the match. Reds boss Jurgen Klopp even reserved special praise for the latter in his post match interview.
“When we are compact, it is really nice to have Adam because he jumps out of compact …
Adam Lallana and The Wrongs of Being Right

Adam Lallana and The Wrongs of Being Right

One of the best things about following, supporting and sharing any views on football is the unerring ability to be wrong. Seriously. Being wrong is great. It’s an incredibly underrated skill. Imagine a scenario where the opposite is the case. You go to the match or a pub or to someone’s house and you call everything with 100% accuracy. ‘He’s no good.   He’s brilliant. He can’t play there. He’ll come good in exactly 48 games and that lad will be …
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 …
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 …
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 …
