Is the record-breaking thrashing of Maribor the start to Liverpool’s season?

It was coming. Somebody was due a thrashing from the twenty-odd shots a game Redmen. Unfortunately for Liverpool's Champions League opponents Maribor, they were the unlucky recipients. They were well and truly put to the torch. Liverpool's 7-0 victory the highest away score of any English team in Europe, in history. The tonking/smashing/beatdown/destruction (insert word of choice for 'tearing apart of opposition') of Slovenia's champions was a result long coming. Liverpool have felt on the verge of this - this …
Klopp Playing The Long Game With Rival Managers

Klopp Playing The Long Game With Rival Managers

Jurgen Klopp isn’t as universally fashionable as he was when he became Liverpool manager back in October 2015 - I think we can all agree on that. When Klopp arrived on our shores he was treated like a God by Reds supporters - something we love to do with our managers - and his appointment was widely seen as one of the most significant in the club’s great history. We all believed he was the man to take Liverpool back …
Tottenham Hotspur v Liverpool - Key Battles

Tottenham Hotspur v Liverpool - Key Battles

The last international break brought with it doom and gloom for a month. The one that has just passed has so far brought two decent performances, a poor result and a massive result. You might say "It's only Maribor", but putting seven past any team is bound to fill the players with confidence. The Maribor result was bound to happen at some time. We couldn't keep creating the number of chances that we were, and not absolute smash some team …
Naby Keïta - The Hottest Prospect in Europe

Naby Keïta - The Hottest Prospect in Europe

On the most recent edition of the AI Pro Euro Incision Podcast, Jonathan Harding discussed Naby Keïta, a player who most Liverpool fans cannot wait to see in the end jersey. Last season was a real coming of age for Keïta, as he set himself out as one of the best young prospects in world football - a diminutive figure on the field, but in terms of influence, a giant, blessed with a beautifully rounded offensive game. Harding drew attention …
Marcotti offers Liverpool fans hope regarding Emre Can

Marcotti offers Liverpool fans hope regarding Emre Can

Italian football journalist Gabriele Marcotti has offered Liverpool fans some hope regarding the ongoing saga around Emre Can, suggesting that the Reds may not be about to lose their influential German. Speaking exclusively to Nina Kauser on the Euro Incision Podcast on their new Anfield Index Pro about the midfielder, Marcotti told Nina Kauser that whilst he still believes Juventus hold a certain level of interest in Can, he may no longer be a priority for them. "There was a …

Creativity from Liverpool's midfield....where is it?

Creativity from Liverpool's midfield....where is it?

After dominating yet another game of football in the league but not doing enough to win it, questions need to be asked as to where our creativity is coming from. Yes, we're creating chances & should be more clinical in front of goal but are we anywhere near our fluid and devastating best...not a chance! This time last season we had scored 18 goals and looked like a real force, this year we've scored four goals fewer and still look …
Tactical Breakdown of Liverpool's Magnificent Seven against Maribor

Tactical Breakdown of Liverpool's Magnificent Seven against Maribor

For several weeks, Liverpool's results have not quite reflected their performances, and even I was beginning to wonder whether persisting with the same approach would be the best route to a confidence-restoring win, after some disappointing results. It seems that more of the same really was the best medicine though, as Liverpool utterly trounced Maribor, away from home in the Champions League.

Fantasy Premier League Insight: GW9 - City Flying

With GW8 behind us, let's reflect on what transpired and MY WORD! what a game week. All the focus was on Anfield as two Juggernauts did battle; the match itself was a let down as it finished honours even. The games to follow produced some of the more unexpected results Man City once again showed us why they are pretty much nailed on for the title, smacking seven goals past Stoke City. Even with Aguero out, City assets just keep …
Milner - The Answer To LFC's Midfield Woes?

Milner - The Answer To LFC's Midfield Woes?

When James Milner was announced in the starting line-up for Liverpool’s game against Maribor, my initial reaction was something along the lines of: “Oh cool, Milner’s playing, we’ve not seen him since the Burnley game.” I like Milner, think he’s a decent option and the team was pretty solid so no complaints from me. Predictably though, there was an almost instant backlash from the gathered Liverpool fans, as how dare Klopp start Milner ahead of the far more deserving Alex …
