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 …
Observations from Liverpool's win against Spurs

Observations from Liverpool's win against Spurs

So that's what it feels like. A win in the league. The first three points since New Year's Eve when Pep Guardiola's Manchester City got the full Jurgen Klopp treatment. Truth be told it's the first time we've looked like a Klopp side since the turn of the year. The performance against Spurs had everything we'd become accustomed to as Liverpool fans earlier on in the season; hunger, desire, passion, confidence and a bit of swagger thrown in for good …

Why Sturridge and the Liverpool System Clash

Why Sturridge and the Liverpool System Clash

The Daniel Sturridge "will he or won't he leave" saga is now more drawn out than the "will Ross and Rachel get it on" storyline. Just when it looks as though the tide has turned and the majority want him sold he scores a striker's goal which reminds everyone exactly what he can offer and exactly what Liverpool miss from time to time. It's a destructive relationship but I'm not quite sure whether player, manager and fans are ready to …
Liverpool's Blunt Midfield Needs Sharpening

Liverpool's Blunt Midfield Needs Sharpening

Ever since the 2-0 defeat at the hands of Burnley in the second game of the Premier League season there have been concerns as to whether or not Liverpool can break down teams who look to park the bus. It's been a slow burner with the Reds putting the likes of Leicester City, Watford and Hull City to sword in an aggregate win of 15-3. But over recent weeks it's become apparent Klopp's men do in fact have difficulty breaking teams down. …
Liverpool v Tottenham Hotspur - Key Battles

Liverpool v Tottenham Hotspur - Key Battles

That dreaded 10-game spell is a thing of the past. Liverpool played a game every Tuesday or Wednesday in January and for the first time since mid-December, they have got a full week to prepare for Tottenham's visit to Anfield on Saturday. It was a week that Jurgen Klopp started with giving the players a two-day break before training began again, and it was a break that a lot of the players could have done with. Liverpool are now on …
Wijnaldum A Better Fit For Liverpool Than Emre Can

Wijnaldum A Better Fit For Liverpool Than Emre Can

After a positive 1-1 draw with runaway leaders Chelsea, many thought Liverpool had turned a corner, putting their dismal January form behind them to kick on and fight for a top four spot. However, the predictability with which Liverpool slumped to a 2-0 defeat against Hull City marked a new low for Jurgen Klopp’s side, who are in serious risk of their season fizzling out into nothing. Much of the pre-match talk was about the return of Adam Lallana, Sadio …
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 …
Klopp Out? Only A Fool Would Want The Liverpool Manager Sacked

Klopp Out? Only A Fool Would Want The Liverpool Manager Sacked

Remember those optimistic Autumn days of 2015, when the entire Liverpool fanbase felt as united as it had done for many years? It was glorious. The arrival of Jurgen Klopp was an incredible statement of intent by the club, and the reaction that followed his appointment was bordering on hysteria. He was the one we all wanted, unless you were trying a bit too hard to be different and whinging about his "rubbish final year at Dortmund". This was a …
