Red Reset: FA Cup Key to Liverpool Expectations

Red Reset: FA Cup Key to Liverpool Expectations

With six wins and two draws by a combined score of 25-6, Liverpool supporters can safely close the chapter on a poor run of form that ran through late September and October. Fervent Firmino fans have joined satisfied Salah supporters in whipping out all of the stats and rubbing it in the face of anyone that ever doubted the two Liverpool forwards who did sputter at times early on. What is true is that Roberto Firmino and Mo Salah have …
Liverpool's Fifty Million Managers

Liverpool's Fifty Million Managers

Has Jurgen Klopp finally started to get the hang of rotation? Or is this another false dawn? Against Chelsea, both Roberto Firmino and Sadio Mane were rested, as Klopp made some big changes from the side that drew with Sevilla. Then against Stoke, Klopp left Phil Coutinho and Mo Salah out of the starting line-up. There has also been rotation in midfield, as Henderson, Wijnaldum and Milner were rotated whilst Emre Can suffered a niggling injury. With Can returning, both …
Liverpool 1-1 Chelsea: A Fair Result?

Liverpool 1-1 Chelsea: A Fair Result?

Liverpool's one-all draw with Chelsea was a disappointing result to take given the scoreline in the 84th minute. The manner of Willian's goal, a floated cross which found its way into the top corner, only compounded the fans' disappointment, after surrendering a three goal lead, away from home, in midweek. The discussion about the game itself begun well before kick-off, with Sadio Mané and Roberto Firmino rested on the bench, with Sturridge and Oxlade-Chamberlain brought in, whilst Milner was also, surprisingly, …

Observations as Liverpool and Chelsea Share The Spoils

Liverpool and Chelsea played out a 1-1 draw on Saturday evening, with Mohamed Salah's second-half goal cancelled out by a rather fortuitous effort from Willian. Here are the observations from the match. Mohamed Salah shines against former-club Here we are again; another Liverpool game, another goal for Mohamed Salah. The Egyptian winger produced another impressive display for the Reds, showing incisive movement throughout the ninety minutes to cause some real problems for his former-club. During his time at Chelsea, Salah …

Every Week "Important" For Liverpool FC

Liverpool returned from the international break to begin their busiest period of the season with a 3-0 win over Saints to begin what has been labelled a hugely important week, ahead of a frantic run to January. Whilst this is, in my opinion at least, technically true, it’s also hugely misleading. Almost every week in the season can be (and has been) described as vitally important. It was important we did well against City. It was important we recovered from …

FSG – Follow The Moores and Cash In

When the Moores family put their majority stake in Liverpool Football Club up for sale in 2003, it was largely driven by an acceptance that they simply could not compete with rivals’ riches. Writing to The Times in May 2010, just over three years after his ill-fated decision to sell to Tom Hicks and George Gillett, David Moores explained, “The decision to sell was taken in 2003, when it became clear that greater investment in the club was needed than …
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 …
Crisis? What Crisis at Liverpool FC?

Crisis? What Crisis at Liverpool FC?

At the start of the season I made a rather large and controversial defence of Liverpool’s ability to win the title this season with the current squad. Here in November, 12 points off the pace, that’s looking increasingly like a pipedream, but I stand by the majority of the points that I made in the article. In terms of opponents, the only Premier League team that we are currently miles behind is Man City, a possibility that I suggested, with …
