Tale of Liverpool's Season: Doubters to Believers

Tale of Liverpool's Season: Doubters to Believers

Jürgen Klopp had one true ambition this season. Turning doubters into believers. An impressive pre-season, capped off with a 4-0 demolition of Barcelona at a sold-out Wembley Stadium had expectations running high already. But it was the 4-3 victory over Arsenal in the very first game of the season that really got people talking. Sadio Mané was the replacement for Raheem Sterling that Liverpool FC had so desperately needed. Roberto Firmino was well and truly into his groove, Gini Wijnaldum's …
How To Survive The Liverpool FC Transfer Season

How To Survive The Liverpool FC Transfer Season

Jürgen Klopp Looking To Get Business Done Early screamed one newspaper headline. Klopp Strikes Pessimistic Note On Early Signings, squawked another. Welcome, officially, to Silly Season at it's most histrionic, idiotic and clueless. Between now and the close of the summer transfer window, you will be exposed to such a barrage of contradictory, attention-seeking lunacy, that you would be wise to have a plan for the retention of your mental health - something into which you can completely invest yourself …
How The Perfect Liverpool Squad Should Look Next Season

How The Perfect Liverpool Squad Should Look Next Season

Another season has been and gone, but unlike so many at Liverpool since they decided to stop winning everything, 2016/17 has left us with a feeling of great warmth. The Reds’ title challenge may have fizzled out after a very promising first four months, but sealing Champions League qualification has to be seen as a huge positive. It is very easy for Liverpool fans to have a sense of entitlement, given the club’s incredible history both domestically and in Europe, …
Liverpool vs Middlesbrough Preview - Key Battles

Liverpool vs Middlesbrough Preview - Key Battles

Liverpool’s final game of the 2016/17 season is in front of their own fans at Anfield, knowing a win against already relegated Middlesbrough will be enough to see them into the top four and with it securing qualification to next year’s Champions League. But it won’t be an easy game, so here are the key battles that the Reds need to win to see off their opposition. Dejan Lovren vs Alvaro Negredo If Middlesbrough are going to any pose any …
Daniel Sturridge - Hammer Time!

Daniel Sturridge - Hammer Time!

I must not write about Sturridge again. I must not write about Sturridge again. I must not write about… Well, if that was to be Daniel Sturridge’s penultimate game for Liverpool it was either a demonstration of what we’re going to miss or a sigh of relief that we no longer have to deal with his maddening unreliability. That depends on your stance. The 27-year old has missed the equivalent of entire seasons since he’s been here and spends more …
Progress At Liverpool FC Regardless Of Final Fixture

Progress At Liverpool FC Regardless Of Final Fixture

Let's get something absolutely clear from the off, friends - whether Liverpool beat Middlesborough and secure a Champions League play-off or not, there has been obvious, demonstrable progress under Jürgen Klopp this season. This really shouldn't need saying, but the fickle and pugnacious nature of many of our fans makes it important to nail your colours to the mast on any areas of potential conflict. Heaven forbid that one might not be comically extreme on every position. It seems to be de rigeur …

Scouting Luan - The Silky Brazilian

The rumours are coming thick and fast, and while Liverpool stumbles their way towards one form of European football – preferably the Champions League – Jürgen Klopp has spoken of his resolve to improve his team significantly in the summer. Included in that improvement would be a backup attacker, who’s able to fill in when the likes of Firmino, Mané and Origi are unable to maintain the demanding schedule of a team making strides in Europe. Much will be made …
Candidates for Liverpool's MOTM vs West Ham

Candidates for Liverpool's MOTM vs West Ham

Liverpool took one step closer to Champions League qualification for next season with a convincing 4-0 victory away at West Ham. The Reds went into this game knowing they simply had to win their remaining two games against the Hammers and already relegated Middlesbrough to seal Champions League qualification - but it wasn't to be easy against an in form West Ham side. They had kept three consecutive home clean sheets for the first time since 2010 - and with …
Sturridge Has To Start To Prevent Liverpool's Blunt Attack Persisting

Sturridge Has To Start To Prevent Liverpool's Blunt Attack Persisting

With Liverpool's attack continuing to look like a harmlessly blunt instrument, it could well be time for Jurgen Klopp to unleash Daniel Sturridge from the off against West Ham on Sunday. The 27-year-old has endured another tough season at Anfield, with a long list of injuries greatly restricting his ability to hold down a regular spot in Jurgen Klopp's team. Having made just five starts in the Premier League this season, he is clearly behind both Firmino and Origi in …
Jurgen Klopp: The Bench Connection

Jurgen Klopp: The Bench Connection

Well someone didn’t get the memo. Following three gutsy away games at Stoke, West Brom and Watford, and two limp ones at home to Bournemouth and Palace, yesterday’s match was an opportunity for the real Liverpool to stand up and beat their chests. Three games left, lads. Time to wipe Southampton away as City had done to Palace the previous day, yeah? Do you want this or not? Hmm? Not sure. This reticence to take what’s in front of our …
