Klopp Out? Only A Fool Would Want The Liverpool Manager Sacked

Klopp Out? Only A Fool Would Want The Liverpool Manager Sacked

Remember those optimistic Autumn days of 2015, when the entire Liverpool fanbase felt as united as it had done for many years? It was glorious. The arrival of Jurgen Klopp was an incredible statement of intent by the club, and the reaction that followed his appointment was bordering on hysteria. He was the one we all wanted, unless you were trying a bit too hard to be different and whinging about his "rubbish final year at Dortmund". This was a …
What Do We Want From Klopp And Liverpool?

What Do We Want From Klopp And Liverpool?

Are you adrift on an undulating sea of football-based emotion? Are your thoughts oscillating uncertainly between bleak despair and manic attempts at forced positivity? Perhaps, you’ve long-since settled at the bottom of that metaphorical ocean and developed a fevered interest in, let’s say, sea anemones. Well, that just makes you a Liverpool fan, my friend, and your experience is shared by us all. In what some folk condescendingly dub 'the real world,' there is currently such deep-state-induced chaos at play, such …
Is Carragher Correct About Sturridge?

Is Carragher Correct About Sturridge?

The proliferation of former Liverpool players in the punditry business is downright odd. As analysts go, they range from the thoroughly dour and old-school likes of Dean Saunders and Ronnie Whelan to the occasionally insightful and earnest likes of Graeme Souness, to the hopelessly anodyne likes of Cockney clothes-horse, Jamie Redknapp. This is to say nothing of BT's Michael Owen, a man so vanilla that he can make flying helicopters over Dubai seem as bland as an Alan Partridge outside …
Stuttering Liverpool must take inspiration from winning run in 2013/14

Stuttering Liverpool must take inspiration from winning run in 2013/14

That Swansea defeat hurt a lot - everything about it. To see such a talented team play with such a lack of belief and creativity was tough to take, especially when their chances of title glory were still alive. It ensured Liverpool's rocky start to the year continued, Chelsea’s 2-0 win over Hull widened their lead over the Reds to 10 points. It is getting closer to the point of no return. Despite this, we must keep reminding ourselves that …
The Running Man - Adam Lallana

The Running Man - Adam Lallana

While fatigue will certainly have taken its toll on several Premier League teams during the gruelling Christmas fixtures, one man seems completely unaffected by it all...one Adam Lallana. The England international covered a total of 13.22km in the 2-2 draw with Sunderland, recording 12.88km in the win against Manchester City just two days before. Both distances were the highest ran by any Liverpool player in the Premier League during the Bank Holiday weekend. Despite struggling under Brendan Rodgers’ tutelage, Adam …
Liverpool FC: Let's See How Far We've Come

Liverpool FC: Let's See How Far We've Come

Perspective is often the rarest of commodities in football. Swept up in the bustling action of the season, results are often what matter the most. The mood of a fanbase is determined by the way their team is playing, and more importantly, whether or not they won their last three games. Winning three in a row; now that’s grounds for celebration. Losing three in a row, and the mood will be one of despair. Anything in between – and it’s …
9th to 2nd at Christmas: What a Difference a Year Makes

9th to 2nd at Christmas: What a Difference a Year Makes

Twelve months ago, Liverpool were sitting ninth in the Premier League table with just twenty-four points from the first seventeen games. Jurgen Klopp had been in charge for just two months, and hadn't really had the effect that we all hoped. In fact his record was worse than his predecessor Brendan Rodgers, averaging just 1.33 points per game in his first nine league games compared to 1.5 for Rodgers in his last eight. Going into Christmas, we had scored just …
Liverpool's Late Winners

Liverpool's Late Winners

Learning to Love the Fat Lady’s Tune When Sadio Mané reacted fastest to the rebound, breaking Everton hearts on Monday night, he unleashed the most primal act in all of us. If you weren’t at Goodison, then, like me, you were up off the couch, fists clenched with the most guttural of roars leaving your throat. Relief, coupled with mild disbelief, takes over. You watch the players celebrate, dreading the linesman’s flag, then you hear Mike Dean’s whistle during the …
Jordan Henderson - The Best Is Yet To Come

Jordan Henderson - The Best Is Yet To Come

There's a saying that springs to mind when I think of Liverpool captain Jordan Henderson - that is fool me once, shame on you, fool me twice, shame on me. For a lot of fans my use of this analogy when I talk about Henderson may be a small bit confusing. Well let me explain. When Henderson came to Liverpool in the summer of 2011, I like many other Liverpool fans were of the opinion, that Henderson simply wasn't good enough to …

Keepers and Context | Bournemouth 4 Liverpool 3

Many years ago a fanzine editor gave me a piece of advice that I will take to my grave. Whereas he had to write copy for a newspaper shortly after the final-whistle while the blood was up, I had a few days grace to compose myself and write with the luxury of time. He said to me - ‘Never write angry. Always sleep on it. Let it sink in.’ Hence, I’m going to be asking you to calm down about …
