Mourinho's Double-Decker Denies the Reds - Liverpool 0 - 0 Manchester United

Mourinho's Double-Decker Denies the Reds - Liverpool 0 - 0 Manchester United

The Details Date: 14/10/2017 Venue: Anfield, Liverpool Background This game, eh? This bloody game. Especially when it's the early kick-off on a Saturday, this bloody game. The remaining happiness levels of our weekend largely depended on the following ninety minutes of football. You could argue it shouldn't, but it does. United arrive at Anfield seven points ahead of Liverpool and second in the league, just trailing City on goal difference. Liverpool have been off the boil, somewhat, since Arsenal were …
Keeping with the Times at Liverpool

Keeping with the Times at Liverpool

Over recent weeks, Simon Mignolet has been nothing less than fantastic, making match winning saves in consecutive games, and taking defensive responsibility in Liverpool's pursuit of a Champions League qualification spot. In the recent match at Vicarage Road, Mignolet put in a truly commendable display, claiming crosses with confidence, and relieving pressure on the team at crucial points within the game; he appeared to be playing with confidence and authority, a far cry from the goalkeeper, dropped mere weeks into the season. …
Recent performances are not enough for Simon Mignolet

Recent performances are not enough for Simon Mignolet

Simon Mignolet found himself taking the plaudits for the second week running as Liverpool ground out a 1-0 win over West Brom, in which Mignolet made a tremendous save with ten minutes to go to keep Liverpool in front. This comes directly off the back of a match-winning performance last weekend, in which Mignolet denied Saido Berahino and Charlie Adam from close range to seal the points for his team. So the question is, do these performances change Mignolet’s standing …
Manchester United 1 Liverpool 1 - Player Ratings

Manchester United 1 Liverpool 1 - Player Ratings

It wasn't like the game at Anfield earlier this season. It was a Liverpool vs United game that lived up to its billing. Yes, it was short of quality on a few occasions, but the pluck and frenzy of a derby was there for all to see. Zlatan Ibrahimovic's late header cancelled out Milner's first-half penalty, but Liverpool will be disappointed not to have shut the game out as they had plenty of chances before Zlatan popped up with the …
Observations from Liverpool's draw United

Observations from Liverpool's draw United

It wasn't what the majority had hoped to witness but the Reds finally ended United's winning streak at Anfield on Monday night. It didn't go to plan. Liverpool didn't blitz their bitter rivals. They didn't get revenge on Mourinho for 2013/14. But they did successfully manage to highlight just how one dimensional the special one actually is. As someone on Twitter said, United have gone from beating teams 8-2 to using that as a formation. Liverpool should have anticipated this but they failed …

Patience Required with Loris Karius

Patience Required with Loris Karius

Football can be strange. Fans are often found moaning about the current state of the sport, about how players are overindulged and clubs are greedy.  How everything in the player's existence is excessive - the wages, the cars and the lives they live.  So it's kind of ironic that in reality we as fans are just as greedy as the players we bemoan. One such example of this is inspired by new Reds 'keeper Loris Karius. In theory 99% of the …
Karius needs time to adapt not tons of abuse

Karius needs time to adapt not tons of abuse

Liverpool moved into second place, at least temporarily, after a 2-1 win away to Swansea, meaning the Reds go into the international break off the back of four straight league wins. A time for Reds fans to celebrate, to smile about the work Jürgen Klopp has put in so far? Not in some cases - it was time to use social media to give Liverpool's young new goalkeeper a piece of their mind. The Reds had come back from a …
A Look at Liverpool Target Loris Karius

A Look at Liverpool Target Loris Karius

Twitter was abuzz on Monday when news broke that Liverpool were 'closing in' on a £5 million move for Mainz goalkeeper Loris Karius. Does he warrant the hype or is this a familiar case of fans overhyping a target? The 22 year old German has had an extraordinary season with his club side as he helped them finish 6th and only a mere five points off a Champions League place, a standout performance was away to Bayern in the Allianz …
