Liverpool's Full Strength Attacking Options

Liverpool's Full Strength Attacking Options

At no point this season has it seemed like Liverpool have had all their best players available. A "back injury" for Coutinho, a suspension and a pulled hamstring for Mane and a lengthy injury to Lallana meant that players in the starting XI were moved around to accommodate for the missing names. The biggest area to take a hit due to injuries was the midfield, whilst we could still field a strong three of Henderson, Can and Wijnaldum it didn't …
Signs of progress for Liverpool following the Wembley debacle

Signs of progress for Liverpool following the Wembley debacle

After the horrible result against Spurs scrutiny has been on Jurgen Klopp to see if he could get a response from his players. 3 games later, with 10 goals scored and 1 conceded, it is fair to say that Klopp has the ability to get a reaction from his players in times of adversity. There is no better example of this than in his final season at Dortmund. The German overcame a shocking start to finish the campaign with some …

Double DM's - Klopp deep 'sixes' his system

"It looked like an offensive lineup, but it was a defensive lineup. Two sixes, two clear sixes!" - Jurgen Klopp
A surprise lineup pleased Liverpool fans as soon as it came out, even if we weren't exactly sure why. The inclusion of Mané was the big shock of the afternoon since even the manager had said he might be ready for 20 minutes. His dynamism and speed take the Reds to another level, but with Bobby Firmino, Oxlade …

Liverpool Supporters: From Doubters to Believers and Back

Liverpool Supporters: From Doubters to Believers and Back

I was one of the doubters, I'm not going to lie. The last months of the Brendan Rodgers era were depressing. The team let the manager down, the fans down but most importantly they let the one true icon for a generation of supporters down in his last season. FSG decided to stick with the Northern Irishman while giving the boot to the backroom staff. A decision that at the time looked baffling. But maybe Jurgen wasn't ready. Maybe there …
Schooled and Lessons Unlearned - Tottenham 4 Liverpool 1

Schooled and Lessons Unlearned - Tottenham 4 Liverpool 1

There was a minute in the second half today where Tottenham broke through our midfield. Roberto Firmino ran with his man and shoulder charged him off the ball with such ferocity that the Spurs player was left sprawled on the pitch. It was a sulky gesture by the Brazilian and borne purely out of frustration. The goal aside it was the only time I cheered in ninety minutes. We’ve all read this script before. Liverpool go out with good intentions …
Emre Can - A Player With Potential

Emre Can - A Player With Potential

Potential is a funny word. It’s a word that can often be used as a backhanded compliment or an excuse for poor performance – well he’s got potential. It can be a word that ignites the feeling of general excitement – he’s got potential. It can be a word to slot in when you’re genuinely not sure on your judgement of someone – he’s got potential. Now potential seems to be tied to a large extent with age, which is …

Liverpool Fans Need to Stay Calm

Liverpool Fans Need to Stay Calm

It's been a tough few weeks of late, with Liverpool dropping points against Newcastle, Burnley, Spartak Moscow and Sevilla whilst also getting knocked out of the League Cup by Leicester. Some fans have even started to turn on the manager. It's strange, Liverpool are only seven games into the league season and people are already writing off their chances of Champions League qualification, the season entirely, and subsequently there's talk of a club in crisis. Yet the table does not …
