Why Liverpool Will Always Be Bigger Than Any One Player

Why Liverpool Will Always Be Bigger Than Any One Player

It took all of eight minutes to remind Anfield of one very special fact. Liverpool Football Club is bigger than any player. Alex-Oxlade Chamberlain’s driving run, emphatic finish and impassioned celebration perfectly emblemised the oft-romanticised ‘Liverpool spirit’ – the idea that you don’t buy a great player, rather a player becomes great in the cauldron that is Anfield. Like a gladiatorial pit in Rome; Anfield’s coliseum atmosphere is what decides the fate of its competitors, not their previous reputation or …
Tactical Analysis: Breaking Down Arsenal 3-3 Liverpool

Tactical Analysis: Breaking Down Arsenal 3-3 Liverpool

It took some doing for Liverpool to best their most ridiculous performance of the season, but somehow they managed to do it. Unlike the Sevilla fixture though, Liverpool only surrendered control for a brief handful of minutes: but that was more than enough for Arsenal to sweep in and turn the game on its head. Yet, were it not for a few moments of madness, we would likely be here, hailing a magnificent performance from Liverpool, once again. https://twitter.com/Caley_graphics/status/944324234150645765 https://twitter.com/GoalCharts/status/944894603110514688 In …
Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain Would Be A Shrewd Piece of Business

Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain Would Be A Shrewd Piece of Business

With Arsenal stalling on a new deal for Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, Liverpool are among a number of clubs linked with a summer move. That’s caused somewhat of a stir from the fan-base, with the reaction varying from apprehension to excitement. If the Ox decides to seek pastures new, Netbet have Liverpool as the favourites to land the attacker. Joining Southampton at the age of seven, Chamberlain propelled himself into the first-team picture in 2010, making his debut at the age of 16. An …
Jurgen Klopp And The Cult Of The Manager

Jurgen Klopp And The Cult Of The Manager

"I am 'The Normal One'. I am a normal guy from the Black Forest. I was a very average player. I don't compare myself with these genius managers from the past." Five years ago the cream of world football managers were sat in Spain and Germany. Guardiola and Mourinho were the two biggest names in the game and occupied the greatest and most successful of dugouts. Around the same time – and I mean this with respect – Liverpool and …
Kirkby Development Will Be Good For Liverpool

Kirkby Development Will Be Good For Liverpool

In a move that is guaranteed to cause more groans and whines of petulant exasperation than gasps of excited wonder, Liverpool Football Club today revealed images detailing the projected appearance of the planned state-of-the-art training complex in Kirkby. The plans for the £50m campus, which will house the extant Academy along with the first team, will be viewed by local residents and businesses today, as the proposed redevelopment enters into the public consultation phase. The theory is that Jürgen Klopp's defending Champions …
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 …
Where is the praise for Liverpool's transfer committee?

Where is the praise for Liverpool's transfer committee?

In English football there has always been an aversion to ‘the continental model’ of football management. The likes of Sir Alex Ferguson, Arsene Wenger and Bill Shankley were such enduring individuals at their clubs that the successes of their teams have been attributed to the all powerful men that ruled them. The great managers of English football dominated every facet of their club, and so, unsurprisingly, the attitude in this country has been sympathetic towards managers who want utter control of their clubs, …
Liverpool and lessons from the past

Liverpool and lessons from the past

BOOM, BOOM! Was the sound we repeatedly heard from the mouth of Jurgen Klopp at Stamford Bridge following Jordan Henderson’s golazo this past weekend, and this has become a sound identifiable with that of Liverpool fans which signifies optimism one might say. Fans are excited (rightly so) by the start of the new Premier League season, as the Reds lie in 6th after a start that involved four away games, three trips to London and a game against the current …
Can Liverpool Win The League With Rising Talent v Big Names?

Can Liverpool Win The League With Rising Talent v Big Names?

Antonio Conte. Jose Mourinho. Pep Guardiola. Jurgen Klopp. And maybe Arsene Wenger. This coming season, the Barclays Premier League is filled with world class managers who will have massive war chests at their disposal to sign big names, as they regularly do with the clubs they have formerly worked for. Jurgen Klopp would also have the same backing from the Liverpool owners after witnessing significant progress when he took over, appearing in two cup finals. But would he actually use …
No More Cup Dreams, Focus On The League Next Season

No More Cup Dreams, Focus On The League Next Season

There're three things certain in life, death, taxes, and a Liverpool cup run. Liverpool have participated in 15 cup finals since the turn of the millennium, picking up the Champions League, the Europa League, three league cups and two FA Cups and firmly establishing themselves as kings of cup competitions. Cup fever has been a welcome distraction from the reality of our recent Premier League history, and this Thursday Europa League Semi-Final will provide yet another diversion from our 8th …
