Liverpool's not-so-secret, secret weapon

Liverpool's not-so-secret, secret weapon

After this past weekend's win over Stoke, I was a guest on the post-match Nina Kauser Show here on Anfield Index and was asked if it was Liverpool 'winning ugly'. Although it was certainly an ugly win, I did say that I felt when I think of 'winning ugly', I think of teams such as ours under Rafa Benitez, the Man United teams of the 1990's or Chelsea under Jose Mourinho in his first reign there; even Arsenal under George …

Liverpool need their own Sergio Agüero. There’s no need for foreplay, or context, or even to reflect on the glory days of yester-year, when Liverpool were famed for their mercurial number nines. All one needs to see is the reaction from Manchester City following James Milner’s penalty. They came at Liverpool, they scored a goal, and they left gaps in their team for Klopp’s counterattack to exploit. Make no mistake; Liverpool punished City for leaving those gaps. They did everything …

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 …

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 …

Inconsistency Of Emre Can Mirrors Inconsistency Of Liverpool

Irritation was the name of the game yesterday at Latest News Towers. Irritation with life's vicissitudes (which is not the fodder for these paragraphs), irritation with the media, irritation with the Redmen and, finally, seeing that irritation gloriously manifested in the exasperated form of Jamie Carragher (himself a regular source of irritation to this columnist, of late) as he reacted with remarkable impatience to the interruption of his analysis by the permanently gibbering Sky-candy that is Jamie Redknapp. Amidst the post-match …
Observations from Liverpool's win over Burnley

Observations from Liverpool's win over Burnley

It was as though Liverpool, Jurgen Klopp, and the players, set out to troll the fans today. The 2-1 win over Burnley was by no means pretty but three points are three points no matter how you pick them up. At the end of the day, the team did what they had to do to pick up the all-important victory. As the game headed into first-half added time it was as though the players had read the majority of drafts …

Liverpool 2 Burnley 1: Player Ratings

Liverpool have tended to oscillate between the joyful highs and the gut-wrenching lows. Today was somewhere down the middle and it was a great sight to see. Liverpool did not just win, but they found a way to win when they were way below the normal standard. Three points have never felt sweeter. Considering the direct nature of the game, I will be going direct on the match ratings piece. Simon Mignolet (6) - Could not do much for the …

Wijnaldum Bites Back But Reds Need To Be Quiet

Sometimes things just pan out, don't they? This morning, as Latest News queued for coffee, the friendly gent who runs the shop offered complimentary ciabatta to your correspondent. A glorious breakfast ensued. Later, whilst scanning the news on Planet Liverpool and quite literally ruminating, there came another moment of serendipity. Following this column's recent lamentations about Redmen saying things that are probably best left unsaid until the season's over and a genuine goal has been achieved, BEHOLD - a Redman …
