More Birthday Blues For The Reds?

More Birthday Blues For The Reds?

Birthdays can be a real source of emotional volatility as one gets older. On the face of it, it's a great blessing to have lasted another year in a world moving at such a distressing pace, in a direction which no longer seems certain, but on the other hand, one is afflicted with terrible and crushing angst about just where one fits in, nowadays. Why is everyone dabbing, for example? What even IS dabbing? Is anyone else cold? Having reached …
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 …
Liverpool's Plan B: Tactical Tweaking of 4-2-3-1?

Liverpool's Plan B: Tactical Tweaking of 4-2-3-1?

It’s not exactly been the best start to 2017 for Liverpool, with their dismal January form continuing for much of February. An impressive win against Premier League rivals Tottenham ought to have provided a platform with which to build on heading into the business end of the season. However, Liverpool once again failed to impress against relegation threatened opposition, with their performance almost an exact replica of previous defeats to Swansea, Wolves and Bournemouth. Once again, it was a tail …
Which Liverpool players are playing for their futures?

Which Liverpool players are playing for their futures?

Following last Monday evening's defeat against Leicester City at the King Power stadium, Jurgen Klopp stated everyone was playing for their futures from now on. Liverpool's fall from grace in 2017 has been devastating having picked up just three victories since the turn of the new year. Poor performance after poor performance has put the starting XI under huge criticism and some of the players' positions in the squad have now come under pressure with the summer transfer window looming. But …
Liverpool's Plan B: Time for the Hipster 3-4-3?

Liverpool's Plan B: Time for the Hipster 3-4-3?

Under Klopp, 2016 was a fantastic year. Goals galore, two cup finals and the development of players such as Roberto Frimino and Adam Lallana. The German tactician started off using a fluid 4-2-3-1/4-1-4-1 formation during the latter months of last season which morphed into an efficient 4-3-3 for the first half of the season. With Can and Henderson never excelling as a two, putting Lallana or Wijnaldum into the mix solidified the midfield and created space for Coutinho's and Firmino’s …
Roberto Firmino: A False or Faulty-Nine?

Roberto Firmino: A False or Faulty-Nine?

As the dust settles on yet another Liverpool FC setback in their pursuit of a Champions League spot come the end of the season, attention is justifiably set on Liverpool's defence. The Reds are on course to concede over 50 goals in a league season again, and conceded 3 goals to Leicester, a team who had not scored a league goal in 2017. However, during the first half of the season, Liverpool managed to get away with their fragile defence, due …
Liverpool Must Create A Shakespearean Tragedy

Liverpool Must Create A Shakespearean Tragedy

You all know the predictable narrative for Monday night. Your world-weary mates and naysaying Twitter gurus have already told you what will happen. Leicester City, following their remarkably cynical decision to axe Claudio Ranieri, will benefit from the 'new boss bounce,' or at least some sort of 'caretaker convalescence,' as the delightfully monikered Craig Shakespeare takes temporary control of first team affairs. Liverpool, needing desperately to build upon the foundations of the win against Tottenham, will come immediately unstuck against …
How Alberto Moreno Could Help Break Buses

How Alberto Moreno Could Help Break Buses

It must be said, Liverpool have been on and off lately. That’s putting it rather mildly. To have such fantastic showings against Chelsea and Spurs, and then to produce…whatever THAT was against Wolverhampton and Hull; it’s indicative of a side with a fantastic plan A – one that gets the better of most teams who want the ball, but without a proper plan B. Of course; the idea that every football team necessarily needs a plan B when things aren’t …
Why Sturridge and the Liverpool System Clash

Why Sturridge and the Liverpool System Clash

The Daniel Sturridge "will he or won't he leave" saga is now more drawn out than the "will Ross and Rachel get it on" storyline. Just when it looks as though the tide has turned and the majority want him sold he scores a striker's goal which reminds everyone exactly what he can offer and exactly what Liverpool miss from time to time. It's a destructive relationship but I'm not quite sure whether player, manager and fans are ready to …
Can Sturridge Fire Liverpool To The Champions League?

Can Sturridge Fire Liverpool To The Champions League?

When Latest News was but a tyke, Liverpool bestrode the domestic and European stage with a paradoxical blend of dignified swagger and quiet arrogance - a unique combination that often accompanies greatness, peculiar to those who know they are the best but retain a humility about that fact. From 1977 to 1984 the Reds were the finest club side on the planet and the four European Cups amassed during that period were the glittering totems of that triumphant era. Instrumental in the …
