Gerrard: Liverpool Need Daniel Sturridge

Gerrard: Liverpool Need Daniel Sturridge

You know that feeling when you really want to watch the Redmen but you really don't want to watch the Redmen? Here at Latest News, that was the itchy blanket of ambivalence that we snuggled beneath on the sofa and warily changed the channel to BT Sport ahead of last night's cup tie with Plymouth. Within seconds of taking in the comical suit and roll-neck combo sported by try-hard host Jake Humphrey and then realising that 'punditry' for the night …
Daniel Sturridge: Give the Man a Break!

Daniel Sturridge: Give the Man a Break!

In a recent interview, Daniel Sturridge claimed that he believed he was Liverpool's best striker. Yet in the comments section below the online article, a debate raged over Sturridge again, with familiar words and phrases banded around. A select few are below: Arrogant Selfish Injury prone Poor attitude Incompatible Once again, Daniel Sturridge is criticised and hounded for doing next to nothing. It's about time we give this player a break. Daniel Sturridge, since arriving to the club has, in my …

Liverpool Fans and Their Great Expectations

Southampton 1-0 Liverpool. A truly dreadful display, that could have seen the end of Liverpool's EFL Cup ambitions if not for an impressive performance by Karius, and woeful finishing on Southampton's part. To take my mind off the defeat, I decided to watch a film, and Christopher Nolan's magnum opus was on television, The Dark Knight. Rather surprisingly I found an intriguing parallel that Heath Ledger's The Joker raised, when in conversation with Harvey Dent,
"...nobody panics, because it's all part of the …
Sturridge Could Be Perfect For Klopp

Sturridge Could Be Perfect For Klopp

Listening to Jürgen Klopp speak about Daniel Sturridge is intriguing. Anyone who's ever had to manage people at any level will find themselves brimful of empathy for the affable German when he is asked to respond to questions about his gifted but often absent striker. People are more fragile than they like to believe and as the person entrusted with eliciting the best possible performance from someone, one must remember that. The trick is to disguise one's frustration, accentuate the positive …
EFL Cup Semi-Final Preview: Reds Look to Bounce Back

EFL Cup Semi-Final Preview: Reds Look to Bounce Back

It has not been the best start to 2017 for Jurgen Klopp's Liverpool. In the 2 games that the Reds have played, they have had two draws. The first one - a 2-2 stalemate at Sunderland - might be excusable, given that it kicked off less than 48 hours after a taxing game against Manchester City. But Sunday's goalless draw in the FA Cup against Plymouth Argyle is inexcusable. Even with the much-changed team, Liverpool should be beating Plymouth. So, …

Liverpool vs Manchester City Preview: Fireworks expected in NYE battle

Liverpool close a record breaking year out with a mouthwatering clash against Manchester City on New Year's Eve, one which could go a long way to decide who gives Chelsea the biggest challenge at the top of the Premier League table. Jürgen Klopp and Pep Guardiola, previous rivals in the Bundesliga, will meet each other in England for the first time, with a clash of playing style and personality likely to prove entertaining. THE DETAILS Match: Liverpool vs Manchester City Venue: Anfield …
Daniel Sturridge A Crucial Figure Between Now & May

Daniel Sturridge A Crucial Figure Between Now & May

Without Daniel Sturridge, Liverpool would not have beaten Everton at Goodison Park. It really is as simple as that. The 27-year-old was introduced late in the day at the home of the Reds’ local rivals, and every time he got the ball, it felt as though something may happen. He looked bright and unpredictable, and you sensed that he was the last person Everton’s defenders wanted to see enter the fray, with legs and minds tiring. It was Sturridge’s run …
Roberto Firmino: A New Breed of Striker

Roberto Firmino: A New Breed of Striker

While not a natural striker, Roberto Firmino has been at the heart of everything good from Liverpool this season, grabbing the plaudits on a continual basis. Jurgen Klopp’s description of the Brazilian as nothing short of a bargain is therefore hardly surprising. Slow Start Arriving for a fee of £29million, Firmino initially seemed to struggle at Anfield. Deployed out wide, the Brazilian found it hard to make a consistent impact on games, only showing rare flashes of what we could later …
