Two Years of Jurgen Klopp

Two Years of Jurgen Klopp

October 8th, 2015 was the day Jurgen Klopp stepped into his role as Liverpool F.C. manager. Considered a real coup, the club had brought in a manager of established quality to try and end a frustrating trophy drought. It's been a whirlwind of a two years - has Klopp turned doubters into believers? Positives When Klopp walked into Anfield, he took up a distinctly average team without an identity. Having come sixth in the 2014/15 Premier League season, Liverpool were …
Alberto Moreno: Will he be vindicated?

Alberto Moreno: Will he be vindicated?

Alberto Moreno’s endured a pretty gruelling time since becoming a Liverpool player in 2014. Arriving from Sevilla, the Spaniard joined as a very attack minded, promising left-back with pace to burn. His defensive abilities, however, have always come under scrutiny. Take a look back at the 2016 Europa League final against his former-club Sevilla for example, with the left-back’s error filled performance at the heart of Liverpool’s second-half capitulation. Caught out of position, Moreno left a gaping hole down the …
Make-Or-Break Season For Divock Origi

Make-Or-Break Season For Divock Origi

Footballers go in and out of fashion all the time, and any slight lull can see them in danger of being cast aside to the scrap heap in no time. It wasn’t long ago at all that Divock Origi was almost walking on water at Liverpool, earning acclaim from every corner of Anfield and looking like a striker of gigantic promise. That was in the second-half of 2015/16, when a string of dominant performances leading the line helped the Reds …
The Seven Year Itch | FSG - A Review

The Seven Year Itch | FSG - A Review

In October of 2010, Fenway Sports Group purchased Liverpool FC for £300 million. In his first statement as owner, John Henry claimed,
'We're here to win and we'll do whatever is necessary.'
Fast-forward almost seven years later, and fans are still divided as to whether FSG have been good owners for the club, and whether the club has progressed, regressed, or simply remained stationary for this period. Under FSG, Liverpool FC have had four managers: Roy Hodgson (sacked January 2011), Kenny …
Just How Attractive Is Jürgen Klopp?

Just How Attractive Is Jürgen Klopp?

It's been an odd couple of days for those of us obsessed with the state of affairs at Liverpool Football Club. For one cohort, the aftermath of Manchester United's Europa League victory was the perfect opportunity for the kind of moaning and masochistic self-flagellation that seems to be de rigeur amongst them. They truly seem to hate themselves and the rest of the world, this lot. It was all over now, you see. The Mancs would beat us to all the …
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 …
A Liverpool Problem, Not a Klopp Problem

A Liverpool Problem, Not a Klopp Problem

A lot has been said recently with regards to Liverpool’s latest slump in form, that saw the Reds lose three home games in a row, go from the red arrows to paper planes and relinquish their chance in two very good cup competitions. Probably for the first time in his tenure, fans are (and rightly so) asking questions of manager Jurgen Klopp, and this is well within anyone’s rights to do so. That being said, I do have to disagree with …

Klopp or not - Liverpool forever inconsistent

Klopp or not - Liverpool forever inconsistent

Set the scene. Liverpool are  clear at the top of the Premier League table, Luis Suarez and Daniel Sturridge are on course to become the league's top goal-scorers and Steven Gerrard has had statistically one of his strongest seasons in a Liverpool shirt. It was all going so well for the Reds in the 2013-14 season. There were poor performances though against Aston Villa and West Bromwich Albion where Liverpool were kept to a draw but then all of a …
