Liverpool FC and The Dreaded U-Shape

Liverpool FC and The Dreaded U-Shape

Liverpool's last two matches have both ended with impressive score-lines, with six goals and none conceded. However, despite the two 3-0 wins, both of Liverpool's performances have been somewhat flat and lacklustre. The opponents in these past two matches both opted to employ low defensive blocks with no real intention to play or score a goal, so Liverpool had the relatively simple task of having 90 minutes to basically break those teams down.

Liverpool Supporters and The Need For Patience

Liverpool Supporters and The Need For Patience

Patience. It feels strange writing this. Strange because, for some reason, in today's society we demand instant gratification, instant success, instant results, instant positivity.

Liverpool still haven't mastered the PR game

"I'm looking forward to the new season with Bayern."
- Mario Gotze, 23/05/2016 Liverpool aren't allowed nice things. Their potentially quixotic end to the season now a distant memory as Mario Gotze seemed to end all the rumours by committing his future, short-term at least, to current club Bayern. This news comes less than a week after the Reds capitulated in the second half of the Europa League final to not just miss out on the Champions League …
Changes at Liverpool: Competing at the Top Table

Changes at Liverpool: Competing at the Top Table

Liverpool FC, its management, the players and supporters have just gone past a frenzied week of activities as the club sacked their manager and appointed a world class name in the form of Jurgen Klopp. In terms of making a statement, that was as big as the club has had in the last few years. As I look back at the last week, it still brings a smile to my face, but it also brings further thoughts about the club. …
