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 …
Is Liverpool's La Manga Break A Good Thing?

Is Liverpool's La Manga Break A Good Thing?

You know it's a slow news day when the official website is running an article which is essentially John Aldridge saying that holidays are great and trips away help with team bonding and morale. The ex-Red goal-poacher reckons the training camp in La Manga is "a really good idea" and the time can be used for working "some finer things that maybe we've fallen short of, especially in the last month or two, some fresh ideas," or training, as it's …
Klopp And Can Have A Plan

Klopp And Can Have A Plan

Here at Latest News, we have an agenda. It is not a Trumpian agenda. There is no snake oil being sold. It's just that, without straying into self-delusion and inaccuracy, this column will always aim to present what's new around Liverpool Football club in the most positive way possible. Granted, the very fabric of that policy had nearly been rent asunder by the awfulness of the first six weeks of 2017, but here we remain, with a big daft grins …
Spurs-Slaying Reds Are On The Road To Recovery

Spurs-Slaying Reds Are On The Road To Recovery

Up until Saturday, 2017 had been awful as a Liverpool supporter. Our pre-Christmas spring in the step was long gone, everything felt like a chore, and like Popeye without his spinach, you were left desperately hoping the Reds would give us a much-needed adrenalin shot. Why did we ever doubt them, though? There has been so much negativity surrounding the club this year , some of it warranted and some of it embarrassingly hyperbolic, but Saturday's fantastic 2-0 win over …
Defensive Deja Vu for Liverpool

Defensive Deja Vu for Liverpool

Defeat to Hull City meant Liverpool's disastrous start to 2017 continued. Jurgen Klopp's men have won just one of their 10 matches since the turn of the year and this run has seen relegation battlers Hull and Swansea pick up maximum points against them as well as having their FA Cup run brought to a premature end at the hands of Wolves, at Anfield. Fingers are being pointed and scapegoats are being identified. Emre Can isn't good enough to start. Dejan …
The Ugly Lovren Witch Hunt

The Ugly Lovren Witch Hunt

Between 1644 and 1647, Matthew Hopkins, the self-styled Witchfinder General, wandered England deciding whether or not women (it was mostly women) had made a covenant with the Devil and were, therefore, heretics to Christianity. Once Hopkins and his zealous chums had 'confirmed' their thesis, the unfortunate object of their accusation was declared a witch and given a 'trial.' You know how this went. Religious fanaticism and deeply held misogynistic beliefs do not make for tolerant appraisal and the women accused, over …
Liverpool vs Chelsea Preview - Key Battles

Liverpool vs Chelsea Preview - Key Battles

Liverpool are having an absolutely wretched January as they welcome the leaders Chelsea to Anfield. Liverpool have lost three home games in a row for the first time since 2012 and they would dearly want to ensure the streak does not extend to four. The below are the key battles to look forward to in this blockbuster fixture. LIVERPOOL MIDFIELD vs MATIC/KANTE Klopp has preferred to line up with a midfield three in almost all of the games, hence it …
Why it would be a mistake to let Emre Can go

Why it would be a mistake to let Emre Can go

The Liverpool Echo hosted a Q&A on Tuesday and James Pearce revealed that Emre Can might be leaving Liverpool in the summer. “I wouldn’t say Emre Can is definitely off but his future is certainly up in the air, “He has been stalling over a new contract and clearly believes he’s worth more than Liverpool are offering. “Hopefully it will be sorted before the end of the season. If he doesn’t sign then it’s likely he will be sold because …

Why Liverpool Need to Fix their Achilles Heel

Why Liverpool Need to Fix their Achilles Heel

The defeat against Swansea. Really, the article could be summed up in a tweet, with plenty of characters to spare. The defeat at the weekend to a spirited and resolute Swansea side encapsulated everything wrong with Liverpool’s team over the last six or seven seasons. It hasn’t been fixed yet, and it needs to be Jürgen Klopp’s imperative to resolve what has been Liverpool’s Achilles heel for far too long: stupid mistakes in stupid positions to allow stupid goals. From …
