Philippe Coutinho Failing In Quest To Be World-Class

Philippe Coutinho Failing In Quest To Be World-Class

What defines world-class? Every football supporter has a different way of seeing it. To some, it is only those truly elite players like Lionel Messi, Cristiano Ronaldo, Luis Suarez and Neymar, while others could name 100 who fit into that bracket. For me, it is someone in and around the top 10 players in the world in their respective position - someone who produces the goods almost every week and rarely hits a genuinely poor spell in form. Manuel Neuer, …

The Long Game: Tough Fixtures & Plenty to Look Forward To

The Long Game: Tough Fixtures & Plenty to Look Forward To

Dropping points at Old Trafford is always a bitter pill to swallow, especially so in the manner that Manchester Utd scored: late, and with the help of a useless linesman. Regardless, it's very much onto the next one for Klopp's Liverpool who face a series of tough fixtures over the coming weeks. In Liverpool's next eleven games, they have one cup semi-final, another FA Cup replay, and fixtures against Chelsea, Spurs, Arsenal, Manchester City and Everton. That being said, looking …

Two Sides of Klopp - Part Two: Pace

For all that he's done throughout his career there are still people who believe Jurgen Klopp is a one trick pony. There's a misconception that his playbook had just the one page; the blitzkrieg approach. Pundits and media alike questioned the long-term viability of it because teams who sat back reportedly nullified it. After a few questionable performances it was confirmed*. Jurgen Klopp had been found out. He'd been exposed. His recipe for success was exclusive to the Bundesliga. The …

Daniel Sturridge A Crucial Figure Between Now & May

Daniel Sturridge A Crucial Figure Between Now & May

Without Daniel Sturridge, Liverpool would not have beaten Everton at Goodison Park. It really is as simple as that. The 27-year-old was introduced late in the day at the home of the Reds’ local rivals, and every time he got the ball, it felt as though something may happen. He looked bright and unpredictable, and you sensed that he was the last person Everton’s defenders wanted to see enter the fray, with legs and minds tiring. It was Sturridge’s run …

The Merseyside derby and the perfect Christmas present

So, here it is, Merry Christmas reds, and what a superb early present we got this past Monday with our win across the park in the dying embers of the game vs our Merseyside rivals. Sadio Mane sparked jubilant scenes in the away end with his 94th minute winner vs Everton, but what was more impressive than the win itself was the performance and stand-out gap in quality between the two sides. Everton, as tenacious as they were, tried to …
Mane's Merseyside Derby Winner: A Defining Moment Come May?

Mane's Merseyside Derby Winner: A Defining Moment Come May?

Those thumpings of Leicester, Hull and Watford were a joy, as were the pleasantly surprising wins at Arsenal and Chelsea, but none come close to what we witnessed against Everton on Monday. A stoppage time victory away to your local rivals, in which the away end goes ballistic, is just perfect. You don’t sleep for hours after the game due to the flow of adrenalin, title rivals are left seething at one point turning into three and anything feels possible. …
