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 …
Kickstart for Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain at the London Stadium

Kickstart for Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain at the London Stadium

From 2007 until the last summer, Liverpool had no. 21 who divided opinion. A little-known Brazilian kid came from Gremio, the jeers from his own fans made him stronger, and when he left for Italy in the summer, the jeers turned into love. No one has quite divided Liverpool fans' opinion in recent times like Lucas Leiva has, and the man who inherited Lucas's no. 21 jersey split opinion even before he kicked a ball wearing the famous red shirt. …
West Ham United V Liverpool: Opposition Scouting Report

West Ham United V Liverpool: Opposition Scouting Report

Liverpool’s visit on Saturday sees them encounter a team with a baffling array of form. Many Reds will look at the Hammers’ incredible turnaround at Wembley against Spurs in the Carabao Cup and wonder just which West Ham will turn up. That night, on the same ground where Liverpool failed miserably days earlier, Andre Ayew (2) and Angelo Ogbonna overturned Spurs’ 2-0 half-time lead in an inspired comeback. Such was the Hammers’ form coming into that game that it looked …
Observations from Liverpool's comfortable night against Maribor

Observations from Liverpool's comfortable night against Maribor

Three goals, three points and an efficient performance. The Reds are back, kind of, with the Champions League last 16 well in sight. From the top of the main stand, where I sat for the first time (pleasantly surprised at noise), what did I observe? Daniel Sturridge Yes, I’m starting with a substitute scoring in the last min. Sturridge is the real story of the night. After all, he’s been through, he finally gets his Champions League goal, and a …
Liverpool 3-0 Maribor - Player Ratings from Liverpool's defeat of Maribor

Liverpool 3-0 Maribor - Player Ratings from Liverpool's defeat of Maribor

Liverpool produced a carbon copy of the weekend performance against Huddersfield, to put themselves in control of Group E in the UEFA Champions League. After an insipid first-half display, goals from Mo Salah, Emre Can and Daniel Sturridge gave the Reds a 3-0 win over a plucky Maribor in the rather quiet confines of Anfield. The win means that Liverpool can book a place in the Round of 16, with a win against Sevilla on Matchday 5 in Spain. Here's …
Liverpool 3 - 0 Maribor: Patience the most important virtue again

Liverpool 3 - 0 Maribor: Patience the most important virtue again

The Details Date: 1/11/17 Venue: Anfield, Liverpool Background Liverpool came into this game as hot favourites after disposing of the same opposition 7-0 in Slovenia two weeks ago. They could all-but-guarantee qualification to the knockout stages with three points tonight and maintain pole position at the top of the group ahead of Sevilla. Klopp would have the opportunity to rest some regular starters and give some much-needed game time to fringe players. Oxlade-Chamberlain would get his chance from the start but …
Liverpool’s Chance to Turn a Corner

Liverpool’s Chance to Turn a Corner

It’s fair to say that Liverpool haven’t been brilliant of late. Before the 3-0 win over Huddersfield on Saturday Jurgen Klopp’s team had won twice in their last 10 games. This included frustrating draws to Newcastle, Spartak Moscow, Burnley and Sevilla and away embarrassments to City and Spurs. While the first half performance didn’t blow Huddersfield away the second half performance certainly did, the team came flying out of the blocks and Sturridge, Firmino and Wijnaldum gave the Reds a …
Liverpool v Maribor - Damage Limitation the only aim for Slovenian Champions

Liverpool v Maribor - Damage Limitation the only aim for Slovenian Champions

The Details   Venue - Anfield, Liverpool Referee - Ivan Kruzliak (Slovakia) Date & Time - Wednesday, November 1st 2017 @ 19:45 BST Current Odds - Liverpool 1/25, Draw 20/1, Maribor 50/1 Form Since the 7-0 win in Slovenia, Liverpool have again displayed some jarring inconsistencies in their team performances. They were well beaten at Wembley by Spurs while showing a more patient, professional side to their game against Huddersfield. Lovren and Mignolet, among others, had a nightmare at Wembley, however, Klopp stuck by …
Klopp Needs Our Support Now More Than Ever

Klopp Needs Our Support Now More Than Ever

My 3 part series "The Klopp Project" discussed some of the context around the club's current position and fortunes. Context is one thing, but the Spurs debacle at Wembley (Huddersfield result notwithstanding) put some things into perspective. It is undeniable that LFC and, perhaps more pertinently, Jurgen Klopp stands at a crossroad. It almost beggars belief that we're now broaching the subject of sacking Klopp. Especially considering it is only two years since the acclaimed, larger-than-life German walked into the …
Red Rant: Inebriated and Recalibrated

Red Rant: Inebriated and Recalibrated

Remember Freshman year of college?  OK, do you remember the people at least?  You probably knew that guy/girl who came in as Pre-Med and four years later, ended up barely squeaking through with a Communications degree.  Great guy, but keg races and frat house hijinks were more his thing than Friday nights in the Library. Liverpool is that guy.  They've come into the season cocky, planning to compete for trophies on four fronts by playing one of the more demanding …
