September Slump: What Next For Jurgen?

September Slump: What Next For Jurgen?

In the aftermath of Liverpool's shocking 2-0 exit from the Carabao Cup at the hands of Leicester, Jurgen Klopp admitted he was sick of the goals Liverpool were conceding. In September alone, Liverpool have conceded 10 goals in a span of 4 matches.  Fans and pundits have criticised Jurgen for not strengthening his defence over the summer and a lack of plan B when van Dijk wasn't available. Jurgen responded by saying he had looked at alternatives over a million …

The Details Competition - Premier League Venue - King Power Stadium, Leicester Referee - Anthony Taylor Date & Time - Saturday, 23rd September 2017 @ 17:30 BST Form Leicester have started the season slower than they would have liked. A home win over newly-promoted Brighton in gameweek two was their only three points so far. They’ve lost at the Emirates and Old Trafford and they suffered a home defeat to Chelsea two weeks ago. They are bound to be buoyed …
Liverpool 1 - 1 Burnley: Anfield bears witness to another draw

Liverpool 1 - 1 Burnley: Anfield bears witness to another draw

Competition: Premier League Date: 16/9/17 Venue: Anfield September has been a sobering month for Liverpool fans. Gone are the exuberant days of August and with them, our care-free attitude to just enjoying our Redmen attacking, scoring, and attacking again. September has opened our eyes to those defensive concerns which we knew were always there. In August, we were able to sweep those matters under the proverbial rug. September, however, seems to be that better friend. Unlike August, she won’t let …
Liverpool 2-2 Sevilla: A Tactical Breakdown

Liverpool 2-2 Sevilla: A Tactical Breakdown

A promising, but so too a very much frustrating match, Liverpool's long-awaited return to the Champions League group stage was disappointing, as from doing the hard work - having to come from a goal down - to then dominating the game, the team once again threw away what should have been three points, instead taking just the one. Between Firmino's equaliser and the end of the first-half, Liverpool were imperious, tearing through Sevilla with some phenomenal attacking play, involving defenders, midfielders …
Liverpool v Burnley - Bouncing back with three points

Liverpool v Burnley - Bouncing back with three points

The Details Competition - Premier League Venue - Anfield Referee - Roger East Date & Time - September 16th, 2017 @ 15:00 BST Form Do I really need to mention last weekend’s game at the Etihad? We all know the team collapsed and lacked leadership after going a man down. The lack of game-management from the manager and the “leaders” on the pitch left me infuriated afterwards. Let’s hope the team grow from the experience. What doesn’t kill you, makes …

Liverpool 2 - 2 Sevilla: Two goals apiece and two dropped points

Competition: Champions League Group Stage Date: 13th September 2017 Venue: Anfield The Champions League returned to Anfield tonight for the first time since 2014. We’ve won it five times, you know?

Now was the chance to put that right, starting tonight. Teams Liverpool lineup - Karius, Gomez, Matip, Lovren, Moreno, Henderson, Can, Wijnaldum, Salah, …
Man City 5-0 Liverpool: A Tactical Breakdown

Man City 5-0 Liverpool: A Tactical Breakdown

A brutal decimation unbefitting of a club like Liverpool, but one handed out nonetheless. I usually enjoy reviewing the game and scrutinising key points within it, but this was anything but enjoyable. In fact, only on my second and third viewing did I fully comprehend what a truly abysmal performance it was. For this analysis, I'm going to take a slightly different approach: rather than solely looking at the goals, and how they progressed, we'll be discussing Liverpool's shape and …
Liverpool's Can Plan

Liverpool's Can Plan

With attention turning back towards the pitch and Liverpool’s nine game unbeaten run going into the match against Manchester City there was a perceptible lack of negativity in the LFC universe this week … Like clockwork, the media and social-media panic mongers filled that void with Emre Can’s contract status. The Reds’ midfield strongman is surprisingly still on his original £55K per week deal which expires at the end of the 2017/18 season. Rival clubs would be able to sign …
Manchester City 5 - 0 Liverpool: Player Ratings

Manchester City 5 - 0 Liverpool: Player Ratings

A game whose result was decided by one reckless challenge and the Reds' heads just dropped. The Reds were royally whipped by an all star City team, leading to Klopp's heaviest defeat in his reign as Liverpool manager. (Considering how Liverpool and Klopp had given up on the game in the second half, we need to take these ratings with a pinch of salt) Simon Mignolet (6): Restored to the lineup, the keeper had a very busy first half, pulling …
