Klopp And Klavan Trying To Find Sense In Defeat

Klopp And Klavan Trying To Find Sense In Defeat

I recently asked my daughter to clarify exactly what the kids mean when they say something is 'meta.' Now, you can stop your smug sniggering -  it's not like I had no idea. I may remember Kenny Dalglish gracing the number 7 for the Redmen, I may have had my first legal pint in 1991 and I may even speak like a relic of the olde worlde at times but I'm not entirely démodé. Yeah, I've probably ruined that already …
Unnecessary Drama In The Liverpool Country

Unnecessary Drama In The Liverpool Country

I'll be honest with you, lovely reader. The majority of my 7-day enforced sabbatical was spent being deliberately oblivious to the football world and almost exclusively devoted to the pursuit of solving the problem of a troublesome brainpan. The latter endeavour, sadly, was wholly unsuccessful, but at least I managed to entirely avoid the unending drama of the Liverpool Country (© Mamadou Sakho) for long enough to be genuinely enthused by my return to AI Towers today, even in the knowledge that …
Observations from Liverpool's defeat against Palace

Observations from Liverpool's defeat against Palace

Just as it looked like we were pulling clear in the race for top four, Crystal Palace rear their ugly heads again. It was so inevitable, wasn't it? Well, maybe not if you've got some optimism, something I'm certainly lacking after that performance. Can Sadio Mane have my leg? I didn't observe him, but here's what was on offer at Anfield... Top four gets that bit trickier Oh dear. If Manchester United win the derby and their games in hand, …
Liverpool v Crystal Palace Preview - Key Battles

Liverpool v Crystal Palace Preview - Key Battles

Four wins and two draws from the set six Premier League games have meant that Liverpool have ensured the top 4 place is in their own hands, but that counts for nothing, if the Reds do not take as many points as possible from their remaining games. Among the teams battling for the Champions League places, Liverpool definitely have the most favorable run-in, but the problem is, football is never played on paper. The challenge for the Reds begins with …

Carragher, Neville And The Cult Of The Pundit

Carragher, Neville And The Cult Of The Pundit

Regular visitors to these paragraphs will know that profound analytical breakdowns of systems and tactics are anathema to this columnist. It's not that I don't appreciate the folk who do that sort of thing, you understand. They provide us all with a valuable service, bless 'em. How many times have you drunkenly thrown out a stat or tactical observation that had been painstakingly compiled by one such hard-working analyst - their slaving over a hot laptop serving only to earn …
Liverpool Fans Angry Over Sakho And Injuries

Liverpool Fans Angry Over Sakho And Injuries

Occasionally, this columnist will sigh in exasperation at the petty squabbling that seems to be so prevalent amongst the diverse collective known as Liverpool supporters. It's normally testy difference-of-opinion stuff but sometimes it can be ugly, bile-laden posturing, revealing the ignorance and unpleasantness of the individuals in question. Mute buttons were made for these people. Yet, for all one may cringe at such Twitter and Facebook keyboard hardmen, offering each other out for scraps that they know will never happen, at …
Liverpool's win over Sunderland - different types of winning

Liverpool's win over Sunderland - different types of winning

Generally speaking, wins come in different categories. So far this season, we’ve had the rollercoaster (Arsenal, Crystal Palace), the batterings (Leicester, Hull and Watford), the bossed win (Chelsea) and the routine (Derby and Burton Albion). Saturday saw us find a new stream. The eked out win. The hard yards. Of course, it wasn’t supposed to be that way. Before the game, there was talk of a double digit victory and of David Moyes walking onto the pitch after half an …
Can you feel it? The Klopp-timism?

Can you feel it? The Klopp-timism?
