Title Obsession Is Clouding Liverpool Supporters’ Judgement Of 2016/17

Title Obsession Is Clouding Liverpool Supporters’ Judgement Of 2016/17

Few sets of supporters crave something as much as Liverpool fans crave a league title. It really is a drug.  For 27 years, we have waited and waited for the curse to end, but unlike most footballing records, this one seems destined to last forever.  We have had to watch Man United dominate the English game for two decades, while Chelsea, Arsenal and Man City have also notched up nine league titles between them. Even Blackburn and Leicester have had …
Emre Can shows he still has something to offer the Liverpool midfield

Emre Can shows he still has something to offer the Liverpool midfield

Liverpool's win over Arsenal on Saturday was filled with a lot of standout performances and memorable moments. Sadio Mane was rightly lauded for yet another goal, Roberto Firmino looked back to his best and Adam Lallana was praised for the fact he was practically everywhere throughout the match. Reds boss Jurgen Klopp even reserved special praise for the latter in his post match interview.
“When we are compact, it is really nice to have Adam because he jumps out of compact …
Sunderland 2 Liverpool 2 - I'm Furious With You All!

Sunderland 2 Liverpool 2 - I'm Furious With You All!

Heads have gone. Absolutely gone. Liverpool drew 2-2 with one of the worst sides in recent Premiership history and the people are furious. Come full time, Twitter and Facebook became a modern day version of George Orwell’s Two Minute Hate. ‘How typical of us to beat City and then not beat a Moyes side!’ ‘Good riddance, Lucas!’ ‘That’s the league gone! We’ll never catch Chelsea now!’ I read those words on the night of the Sunderland game (that being the …

How do Liverpool compare to previous 2nd place finishes?

How do Liverpool compare to previous 2nd place finishes?

Liverpool’s form has picked up, the team seem to be gelling, and there’s a lot of belief among the Anfield faithful that something very special could be upon us and our beloved Reds. This I expect. What I didn’t expect, however, was for neutrals and bookies to be quite so on board as well. Last I checked, we ranked at 5/1 for the title, second only to Manchester City and at around half the odds of Arsenal and Man Utd. …
Klopp's 2016/17 Entertainers: A Joyous Time To Support Liverpool

Klopp's 2016/17 Entertainers: A Joyous Time To Support Liverpool

There was a point during Tuesday’s routine 3-0 win over Derby County when I realised I was enjoying watching Liverpool more than I can almost ever remember. Some of the football was breathtaking at times, with the speed, movement and imagination in the Reds’ play something to behold. Whether it be Philippe Coutinho’s quick feet, Roberto Firmino’s effortless elegance or simply the slick efficiency of Nathaniel Clyne, I was riveted. I was going to bang on about Loris Karius’ handsomeness …
Where would Mahmoud Dahoud fit in at Liverpool?

Where would Mahmoud Dahoud fit in at Liverpool?

Reports broke on Monday evening that Gladbach midfielder Mahmoud Dahoud was a target for Liverpool this summer as Reds boss Jurgen Klopp looks to find that so far elusive tempo setting midfielder. Since this news became public knowledge there has been plenty of article detailing just who Dahoud is ,and how he managed an impressive 10 interceptions against Manchester City in his first Champions League match, but very little about how he'd fit in at Liverpool. Perhaps it's because people …
Top 4? It's the hope that kills you!

Top 4? It's the hope that kills you!

Top 4? It's the hope that kills you! I watched something happen to this Liverpool team over the past week. They went to Wembley and after a slow start and falling behind, ended up running Manchester City down to the wire. But sadly, it was not to be. The Liverpool performance in the Final, whilst better, was still some way short of the lofty expectations that Liverpool supporters of my age group were so used to identifying with, but it …
Why we must be patient with Jordan Ibe

Why we must be patient with Jordan Ibe

If Liverpool's progress under Jurgen Klopp is to gather pace, then the development of talented young players at his disposal will surely be of crucial importance. This was certainly the case under Brendan Rodgers, who successfully nurtured players like Raheem Sterling and allowed him to express himself in a side that pushed Manchester City all the way in one of the most exciting Premier League title races in memory. This season, a heavy spotlight has fallen upon promising winger Jordon Ibe. The …
Time To Step Up - Jerome Sinclair

Time To Step Up - Jerome Sinclair

Liverpool just can seem to catch a break lately with injuries. With almost a full compliment of attackers out injured, any hopes of fans seeing Belgian striker Divock Origi in the next few games have been dashed with the news that he's going to be out for at least another month after under going surgery in Belgium which is a shame for him because before he picked up his hamstring injury on Boxing Day he was starting to show a …
