New Deal For Can? It's A No Brainer

New Deal For Can? It's A No Brainer

Starting 46 games last season, Emre Can was tipped to have an extensive and successful career at Anfield. He was Klopp’s go-to man, running games in the number 6 role by injecting drive and energy to help push Liverpool towards a Capital One Cup and Europa League final. This campaign, however, has seen Can’s career stall alarmingly, with the 23-year-old struggling to establish himself as a key member of the squad. A Stuttering Season Turning Good? Emre Can has divided opinions this season …
Matip, Wijnaldum & Mane Proving Klopp Should Be Trusted This Summer

Matip, Wijnaldum & Mane Proving Klopp Should Be Trusted This Summer

Many past Liverpool managers have experienced utterly disastrous summer transfer windows. Gerard Houllier, Rafa Benitez and Brendan Rodgers all spectacularly failed to build on near title-winning seasons in 2001/02, 2008/09 and 2013/14, respectively, with dross such as El Hadji Diouf, Salif Diao, Philipp Degen and Alberto Aquilani bought in. Even Kenny Dalglish, for all his understandable God-like status at Anfield, decided to sign Jose Enrique, Charlie Adam and Andy Carroll. When the end of Jurgen Klopp’s first season as Liverpool …
Liverpool's Champions League Fate Is In Their Own Hands

Liverpool's Champions League Fate Is In Their Own Hands

Liverpool continued their unbeaten record against the top six sides on Sunday in a thrilling and frantic 1-1 draw with Manchester City at the Etihad. James Milner opened the scoring from the spot to give the perfect response to the surprisingly hostile reception he received at his former club, before Sergio Aguero equalised from a low cross into the box by Kevin de Bruyne. The Reds had a golden chance to take all the spoils when Roberto Firmino squared for …

Observations from Liverpool's 1-1 draw at the Etihad

Liverpool’s 1-1 draw with Manchester City at the Etihad is one of those results which divides fans. If you’re a glass half-full type of person then it’s a point gained away to a rival and a positive performance to go alongside it. If you’re a little more cynical then it’s two points dropped in the hunt for Champions League football and there are concerns over the team’s mentality. The Reds started off slowly but grew into the game and became …
Manchester City 1 Liverpool 1 - Player Ratings

Manchester City 1 Liverpool 1 - Player Ratings

A mentally exhausting game ended with honours even, with both teams spurning big chances to settle the result. What looked to be a slow burner, exploded into life in a very watchable second half. This is how the Reds fared Simon Mignolet (6) - In spite of the attacking play from City, Mignolet had pretty little to do in terms of big saves. Got his leg to a ball cut in from the right. Could do nothing for the goal …
Does Coutinho Belong in the Midfield?

Does Coutinho Belong in the Midfield?

Since the turn of the New Year, Liverpool’s form has dipped – there can be no doubting that. Teams seemed to have picked up on Jürgen Klopp’s kryptonite: a low block, without any ambition to attack, frustrating and uncompromising in defensive stature. Palace, Hull, Swansea, Leicester; the reminders don’t need to be stated. What does, is the alarming form of the golden (adopted) son of the Red half of Merseyside; one who embodies the closest thing to a “superstar” that …
Liverpool's Under-Fire Full-Backs Must Deliver Against Man City's Flying Wingers

Liverpool's Under-Fire Full-Backs Must Deliver Against Man City's Flying Wingers

Few players are less fashionable in the modern game than Nathaniel Clyne and James Milner. In an era when Football Manager, FIFA and statistics-based websites such as Squawka and WhoScored allow any football fans to proclaim themselves experts on any player across Europe, who really cares about two functional English full-backs? The snobbery against British players can become a little tiresome at times - just imagine how much more praise Adam Lallana would receive if he was Spanish - but …
Rating Liverpool Players' Consistency in 2016-17 - PART TWO

Rating Liverpool Players' Consistency in 2016-17 - PART TWO

There has been plenty of talk of Liverpool's inconsistencies throughout the 2016-17 campaign. After a hugely impressive start to the season, it's been another disappointing year and what had the potential to be a successful campaign, has turned into an unpredictable final few months. Liverpool have the best success record against teams in the top six and they picked up a number of commanding victories against their rivals at the beginning of the season. Wins against Arsenal and Everton on …
Is Magnificent Mane One Of Liverpool’s Signings Of The Decade?

Is Magnificent Mane One Of Liverpool’s Signings Of The Decade?

With many great Liverpool players, there are often moments that come along that make you realise how special they are. With Steven Gerrard, it was his thunderbolt against Man United at Anfield. For Luis Suarez, it was his incredible assist for Dirk Kurt against the same team. Fernando Torres’ ruthless finish against Chelsea on his home debut made us realise the Reds had a world-class striker in their ranks. You no doubt have other examples that instantly pop into your …
Observations from Liverpool's win over Burnley

Observations from Liverpool's win over Burnley

It was as though Liverpool, Jurgen Klopp, and the players, set out to troll the fans today. The 2-1 win over Burnley was by no means pretty but three points are three points no matter how you pick them up. At the end of the day, the team did what they had to do to pick up the all-important victory. As the game headed into first-half added time it was as though the players had read the majority of drafts …
