Lovren is Part of the Solution

Lovren is Part of the Solution

A Central Midfielder is not just a Central Midfielder. Forward is not just a Forward. Neither is a Centre Back just a Centre Back. They are living, breathing, important pillars on which the entire structure of our team is erected. Each is not just a cog in a mighty machine, but rather are the machine itself. Jürgen Klopp football requires the team to move as one. The ‘freedom of play’ often labelled on Klopp’s attacking players is not down to …
Why The Fume Over Liverpool's Summer?

Why The Fume Over Liverpool's Summer?

I write these words on 14th June - World Cup day. It would be too much to suggest that you’ve noticed my absence from this website but, trust me, I haven’t stroked a keyboard for a fortnight. There are many reasons for this - work has been busy, every weekend has been booked up and my new novel is almost ready for publication, but there’s a more dominant reason. I’ve had nothing to say. Seriously, there isn’t much to get …
2018-19 Premier League fixture reaction. The season we win it?

2018-19 Premier League fixture reaction. The season we win it?

With the recent disappointment of the proposed Nabil Fekir signing falling through, Liverpool fans have been in need of a distraction to take their minds off the circus that the transfer window rumour mill. Not only is the World Cup due to begin today (hooray football is back!), but the 2018-19 Premier League fixture list has also been released. As a fan base, we have the tendency to dwell on frustrations of the past, so the 2018-19 fixture list is …
The Case for Xherdan Shaqiri

The Case for Xherdan Shaqiri

Following an impressive start to their summer with the signing of Fabinho and the impending arrival of Naby Keita, Liverpool have looked to bolster what was their most glaring weakness of the season, shining brightly in the eyes of every fan who watched their side go down to Real Madrid in Kiev. A lack of depth. Xherdan Shaqiri, having been relegated with Stoke this season, has emerged as the cut-price option to bolster the Reds’ attacking unit. Should they bring …
Liverpool FC - Getting Smarter

Liverpool FC - Getting Smarter

Liverpool football club is not at the top of the transfer food chain. It's an unpleasant fact but we need to accept it. There are clubs that are richer, stronger and can offer guarantees that LFC just can't. So it's natural that some players will use the famous red jersey as a stepping stone to get to supposedly better clubs. This has been happening for years. Even Steven Gerrard considered it at on point. Just in the past 10 years, …
LFC 2017/2018 Player Ratings - Part 2

LFC 2017/2018 Player Ratings - Part 2

After rating the defence, now it's time for midfield and attack. Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain - Average Post-match Rating 6.63, Writers' Season Rating 7.5 The Ox had a slow start to his Liverpool career, appearing mainly as a substitute in the begging of the season. He grew to be our best midfielder as the season progressed before being sidelined by an injury sustained against Roma. His banger against Man City will be on the highlight reel for years. The injury also casts …
Trust Michael Edwards - He's Smarter Than Us

Trust Michael Edwards - He's Smarter Than Us

It’s been a very strange and very fraught weekend for Liverpool fans. The timeline is sketchy, details are even sketchier but on Thursday night, it was announced that Liverpool had wrapped up a deal with Nabil Fekir. On Friday morning, Lyon denounced that, and rumours flooded that Fekir had failed his medical. Those rumours were largely debunked, and speculation ran rampant but the announcement of Fekir never came, until finally on Saturday night, Lyon announced that the deal was dead. …
How Klopp Could Unleash the Big Guns in the 4-2-2-2

How Klopp Could Unleash the Big Guns in the 4-2-2-2

A manager requires perpetual change if he’s to succeed in the savage land that is the Premier League. That’s the narrative that gets swung about on the regular, amidst pundits and fans alike. In Pep Guardiola’s first season, his tactical ministrations were seen as too imposing, not giving English Football’s top tier its due. Jose Mourinho has been accused of remaining “stuck in his ways” on multiple occasions; accusations which surprisingly were most stark in the Champions League against Sevilla. …
Priceless Sadio Mane Must Not Go Unloved at Liverpool

Priceless Sadio Mane Must Not Go Unloved at Liverpool

Football moves at a relentless pace. It only takes a string of good or bad performances to completely alter an opinion on a team or a player, with the modern game as knee-jerk as it has ever been. When it comes to Sadio Mane, this definitely applies, even though any sane Liverpool supporter knows full well how brilliant he is. He has been a revelation since joining from Southampton, becoming a key component of Europe’s most fluent, devastating attacking unit, …
My Late Father and Liverpool

My Late Father and Liverpool

Being a Liverpool fan, I’ve fallen out of love with the game more times than I can count. Between marginally losing the league in 2008/09, and again in 2013/14, to seeing some of the icons I grew up supporting and adoring leaving the club one-by-one – who could blame me, right? This time, however, it was at a whole new level. In early May, my Dad suffered a heart attack which effectively took him away from this world, my world, …
