Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain - The Perfect Klopp Midfielder

Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain - The Perfect Klopp Midfielder

As a raw teenager at Southampton in the 2010-11 season, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain carved out a reputation as one of the hottest prospects in English football. A clamour for his signature ensued in the Summer of 2011, and it was Arsenal who staved off interest from a number of suiters by completing the signing of the exciting teenager. At the time, Arsenal had a strong reputation for developing young talent. So it was understandable that the youngster chose to ply his …
The Klopp Revolution

The Klopp Revolution

The year is 2016, the date April 14th. Liverpool welcomed hordes of Dortmund fans as they flooded the city. The Germans had finally landed on English soil. It is the second leg of the Europa League Quarter-final, with Liverpool managing the all-important away goal in a 1-1 draw at the Westfalenstadion the week previous. The fans greeted the team bus with vigour and joy not seen since the 13/14 season when the league seemed within our grasp. The Liverpool fans …
Could Gini Wijnaldum be Liverpool's Future Number Six?

Could Gini Wijnaldum be Liverpool's Future Number Six?

Setting the tempo, demanding the ball and creating passing lanes - that's not Gini Wijnaldum is it? When Jordan Henderson picked up a yellow card for tripping up Raheem Sterling in the second-half of the first leg of the Champions League quarter-final at Anfield, ruling himself out of the second leg because of suspension, Liverpool fans quickly turned to social media to express their concerns. With Emre Can definitely out of the second leg because of a niggling back injury, serious …
How Many Will Mo Score?

How Many Will Mo Score?

Mo Salah has now hit the 40 goal mark for the season, with 30 goals in the Premier League. The records are stacking up and the numbers are already truly remarkable. But how many will Mo Salah score? I’ve decided to split this article into two parts – the first contextualising some of the targets Mo could hit between the end of the season, and the second part discussing Mo’s chances of duplicating his form next year. Rush, Suarez or …

European Adventures Raising The Bar For This Liverpool Team

Liverpool are riding high right now. That fantastic feel-good factor, as we approach the season’s run-in, brings back memories of the good times under Houllier, Benitez and Rodgers. When we were fighting for targets and silverware at the business end of the season. A team playing terrific, brave football, in fine fettle as rivals start to wilt around us. Our form following the recent international break has been phenomenal. Three wins and a draw secured in a congested and tiring …
Liverpool's Underappreciated Midfield

Liverpool's Underappreciated Midfield

The consensus of this Liverpool team seems to be that the three attackers are world class, our defence still needs some serious work (although the emergence of Robbo, the signing of VVD and the form of Karius are mitigating this) and our midfield is … alright. The subject of our midfield is an interesting one, mostly because of the common criticisms and worries about our players. The most consistent criticism of our midfield is that it lacks an explosive punch, …
Key Stats from Liverpool 3-0 Bournemouth. Easy Street.

Key Stats from Liverpool 3-0 Bournemouth. Easy Street.

Liverpool turned in another comfortable win at Anfield, this time against Bournemouth, with the Cherries routed 3-0. But what were the key stats from a happy evening for Klopp’s Reds? Goals Galore Liverpool notched their 300th goal under Jürgen Klopp, in just 148 games. The team that has been scoring at a clip of two goals a game for his entire regime scored more than that today and that was partly down to the brilliance of his forwards. Both Sadio Mané …
Observations as Liverpool Topple The Cherries

Observations as Liverpool Topple The Cherries

Liverpool maintained their present momentum with a routine win against Bournemouth on Saturday evening, scoring three goals as they surge ever closer to the top-four. Mohamed Salah was on the score-sheet once more, extending his tally as he chases down the Golden Boot award, while Roberto Firmino and Sadio Mané also converted. Maybe Mo can appeal for all three goals to be awarded to him? Here are the observations from the match. Mané makes history as Demba Ba's record is …
Terrific Trident, and a Sensational Scouser - Reds Thrash Bournemouth 3-0

Terrific Trident, and a Sensational Scouser - Reds Thrash Bournemouth 3-0

Any suggestions that the foot might be taken off the Premier League pedal were emphatically blown away at Anfield as Liverpool got themselves a routine 3-0 win against Bournemouth. Each of that fantastic front three found themselves on the scoresheet, as Eddie Howe's side were put to the sword by a Liverpool side who really didn't have to get out of second gear for the most part. The Reds have now scored 121 goals in all competitions this season, the …
Liverpool Player Ratings From Cherries Crushing

Liverpool Player Ratings From Cherries Crushing

Three points closer to more night's like that one against Manchester City, is how I'm viewing it. An afternoon that will be quickly forgotten but one that Liverpool need more of, as they beat Bournemouth 3-0. A day for the goal charts as Firmino gets his 25th of the season, overshadowed somewhat by Salah's 40th. Not a bad time to be a Red. Standout figure at the back Loris Karius (6): Had literally nothing to do first half apart from …
