Lethal Lucas Strikes Again

Lethal Lucas Strikes Again

Most of the Liverpool fans I know for certain to be actual corporeal beings don't have a lot of time for Lucas Leiva as a footballer. In stark contrast, those with whom I only have virtual interactions seem to almost uniformly love the amiable Brazilian. As is often the way in the odd life through which Latest News lurches, the people who live in the computer are often more simpatico. They may not be real but this collection of novelty …

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 …
Ojo Reckons Young Reds Will Be Fine

Ojo Reckons Young Reds Will Be Fine

Jürgen Klopp has just been telling the assembled hacks that Philippe Coutinho is likely to have some minutes against Southampton and that Joel Matip is close to a return and, to be entirely honest, the world seems like a better place. I'm thinking especially of those poor damaged souls I referred to in this morning's article - the OH DEAR GOD, NOT ANOTHER GAME merchants. The return of our most potent attacking threat alongside our most effective defender will be a …

Klopp Content With The Kids

If we're all completely honest with ourselves, yesterday's 3rd round FA Cup match against Plymouth at Anfield was everything one would expect to emerge from the disorientating fug of the post-Christmas period. It was the Redmen, but it wasn't really. It was a competitive match, but it wasn't really. Jürgen Klopp was clearly on the touchline and yet also appeared to be in the stand looking decidedly non-plussed. As Alberto Moreno jogged over to ineffectively strike his twentieth corner of the game, this scribbler …
Liverpool vs Plymouth Preview: Up for the Cup?

Liverpool vs Plymouth Preview: Up for the Cup?

Liverpool's quest for their eighth FA Cup trophy, and a first since 2006, begins on Sunday afternoon as the Reds host League Two Plymouth Argyle at Anfield. It's the classic David vs Goliath clash at Anfield, and as we've seen before on numerous occasions, anything can happen in the cup. However, Jürgen Klopp's side will be overwhelming favourites going into the game. THE DETAILS Match: Liverpool vs Plymouth Argyle - FA Cup Third Round Venue: Anfield Date: Sunday 8th January Time: 13:30 BST …
Klopp on Karius, Sturridge and Coutinho

Klopp on Karius, Sturridge and Coutinho

Last night I watched Dinosaur 13, the heart wrenching tale of the world's most impressive Tyrannosaurus Rex discovery. Sue, that's what they called her, was subsequently impounded by the FBI for dubious reasons and remained in storage for years, much to the chagrin of the hapless paleontologists who'd quite literally unearthed her. Now it may be that my brain is even more damaged than I had believed, but this struck me as the perfect metaphor for how many of us …
Steven Gerrard - 15 Key Moments From The Career Of A Legend

Steven Gerrard - 15 Key Moments From The Career Of A Legend

Last Thursday (24/11/16), Steven Gerrard confirmed his retirement from football after over eighteen years in the professional game. Gerrard spent the first seventeen years of his career at boyhood club Liverpool before moving to LA Galaxy for the final eighteen months of his glittering career. The midfielder made 748 appearances for the two clubs, scoring 191 goals in the process, and won 114 caps for England, in which he netted 21 times. Here I am going to highlight 15 key …
Liverpool's 1992 FA Cup run

Liverpool's 1992 FA Cup run

A Simpler Time Looking ahead to next season I wanted to write about a time when the FA Cup still meant a great deal to all clubs and managers. Defeat to Sevilla last month ensured that Liverpool’s focus is going to be domestically fixated next term. With no European football to contend with surely Klopp will want his men to compete on all three fronts at home? Ronnie Moran Leads Them Out On 9th May 1992, Wembley Stadium was the …
The Liverpool Kids - The Future or No Future?

The Liverpool Kids - The Future or No Future?

As seasons go, this one has been something of a bonus for those Liverpool players looking to make the break through proper into fully fledged first team players. The arrival of Jurgen Klopp offered a fresh start, and the run in the FA Cup a platform on which to grasp that opportunity and show the boss why they warranted more than just a spot in the shadows going forward. But now as we enter the twilight of a season that …
