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 …
Trent Alexander-Arnold: A learning curve

Trent Alexander-Arnold: A learning curve

One of the feel good stories surrounding Liverpool FC recently has been the rise of young scouser Trent Alexander-Arnold. For years there was a constant stream of local lads making it into the first team and going on to become cult heroes or world class players, the academy down the years has produced the likes of Michael Owen, Jamie Carragher, Robbie Fowler, Steve McManaman and most notably Liverpool legend Steven Gerrard. Since the debut of our former captain; the well …
Liverpool's Manchester Litmus Test

Liverpool's Manchester Litmus Test

Most of the question marks over Liverpool’s ability to challenge for titles this season have been over their squad depth – and rightly so. But this implies that there is a general consensus amongst Liverpool fans that in general the starting team is good enough to compete with the very elite – at least at Premier League level. However this season, that hypothesis hasn’t been put to the test. Until now. That’s not to say that Liverpool haven’t been brilliant …
The Best 2/3rds of a Liverpool Team in Years

The Best 2/3rds of a Liverpool Team in Years

“And it’s Liiiiiiiivvvv-errr-pool Liverpool FC We’re by far the greatest two thirds of a team The world has ever seen.” Well, they had me fooled. As the hours passed and Sky reporters told us about how they’d spoken to ‘sources close to the club’ while standing outside car parks, I honestly believed there would be a nine foot lad in the background, creeping in through the Melwood gates, holding an expensive looking pen. Come 10.30pm I was beginning to fear …
Liverpool beat Arsenal by four, let the season begin!

Liverpool beat Arsenal by four, let the season begin!

Arsenal rolled over like a puppy as Liverpool produced a devastating attacking display to whack the Gunners by four on Sunday evening. Jürgen Klopp's side were improved at the back, impressive in midfield and imperious going forward. The pre-match decision to drop, rest, whatever, Simon Mignolet for Loris Karius was much talked about, but mattered little thanks to fantastic display's from those in front of the German. Joe Gomez again filled in capably for Trent Alexander-Arnold, filling in himself for …
Liverpool v Arsenal Preview - Key Battles

Liverpool v Arsenal Preview - Key Battles

Liverpool are back in the Champions League proper. The draw for the group stages could have been far worse than it has ended up being, but for now, that doesn't matter. What matters is Sunday evening at Anfield, for the first high-profile Premier League game of the season. When Arsenal came to Anfield last season - in early March - they were in turmoil. They had just been beaten 5-1 at the Allianz Arena, and it looked like that could …
Joe Gomez: Liverpool's Most Important Full-Back

Joe Gomez: Liverpool's Most Important Full-Back

Five young full-backs. Like a team within a team, they all have their own unique strengths and weaknesses. Trent Alexander-Arnold has been absorbing most of the accolades and Moreno has been the whipping boy as usual. Robertson’s crosses against Palace drew audible ooh’s and ahh’s from the crowd and Jon Flanagan regaining a squad position is great to see. But when the story of the 2017-18 season is written, it may be Joe Gomez that has the biggest impact in …
Trent Alexander-Arnold: A Star is Born

Trent Alexander-Arnold: A Star is Born

I remember watching Robbie Threlfall in a Youth Cup final between Liverpool and Man United in 2007, and convincing myself he was going to be a future Reds great. I can hear some of you asking who on earth Robbie Threlfall is. The defender starred in Liverpool’s march to glory that year, scoring in the final of the second-leg at Old Trafford, and big things were expected. Threlfall never made the grade at Anfield, as you may have guessed - …
How should Liverpool approach the domestic cups?

How should Liverpool approach the domestic cups?

Despite having the added demands of European football, the domestic cup competitions should be seen by Liverpool supporters and more importantly the manager as genuine chances of silverware this season. This is not to say big players shouldn't be rested in the league cup and FA cup, they will have to be. But with Liverpool's strength in depth in key areas such as defence, central midfield and up front these provide the Reds with a perfect opportunity to give their …
