Emre Can: Silencing The Impatient Doubters

Emre Can: Silencing The Impatient Doubters

“Sell Emre Can in the summer”, ”he’s such an average player”, “I’d rather Kev Stewart started ahead of him now”. Bet you’re feeling a little foolish if you uttered words of that ilk with regards to Emre Can earlier in the season. Keep it quiet, but I may even have had a few digs too, which I regret.  Modern football absolutely loves a scapegoat, and few sets of supporters do it better than Liverpool fans. It doesn’t matter how well …
The Return of 'O Magico: Philippe Coutinho!

The Return of 'O Magico: Philippe Coutinho!

The magician, Philippe Coutinho, is back. His return to form could hardly have occurred at a more opportune time. With Mané, Henderson and Lallana injured, and the stakes as high as ever in the race for a Champions League position, Coutinho's renewed confidence feels as influential and important as a new signing. Like all top players, he delivered when the pressure was on - the Merseyside Derby - a match which he seized and made his own. He dominated from the …
Liverpool Are Lacking That One True Superstar

Liverpool Are Lacking That One True Superstar

As Zlatan Ibrahimovic inspired Manchester United to their League Cup triumph on Sunday afternoon, it was impossible not to feel a twinge of jealousy. Liverpool’s most bitter rivals had been outplayed for much of the game against a slick Southampton side, but Ibrahimovic was ultimately the difference between the two sides. The legendary Swede has been an enormous success story at Old Trafford, unfortunately, with his all-conquering swagger both on and off the pitch helping transform a club in delightful …
Liverpool's Formidable Front-Six Is Back In Business

Liverpool's Formidable Front-Six Is Back In Business

The way in which Sadio Mane tore Tottenham to shreds in that first-half at Anfield truly was a sight to behold. Liverpool’s returning hero was almost unplayable, scoring twice and coming very close to notching another couple before half-time. It was an individual performance that perfectly highlighted what the Reds have been missing in Mane’s absence, during the most horrendous January in recent memory. They didn’t look the same attacking force without his pace, movement, end product, and his mere …
In Times of Despair, The Academy Brings Hope

In Times of Despair, The Academy Brings Hope

After another damaging defeat at Hull City yesterday, Jurgen Klopp's Reds are now five league games without a win (3D, 2L) and a turn in form is now vital if the First Team want to be playing Champions League football next season. However, all is not lost for Liverpool, as Neil Critchley's U18's show. The Liverpool youngsters are currently third in the North Division of the U18 Premier League and look to be heading into Group 1 to fight for …
A Liverpool Problem, Not a Klopp Problem

A Liverpool Problem, Not a Klopp Problem

A lot has been said recently with regards to Liverpool’s latest slump in form, that saw the Reds lose three home games in a row, go from the red arrows to paper planes and relinquish their chance in two very good cup competitions. Probably for the first time in his tenure, fans are (and rightly so) asking questions of manager Jurgen Klopp, and this is well within anyone’s rights to do so. That being said, I do have to disagree with …
Lucas Leiva: The Intangible Benefits of Liverpool's Most Experienced Player

Lucas Leiva: The Intangible Benefits of Liverpool's Most Experienced Player

I’m pleased it was Lucas. For all the talk of Jurgen’s ambitious new shavers coming in to kick start the FA Cup campaign, it took the oldest head in red to beat his man at the near post and thunder in from close range. A goal from the other end of the Woodburn/Leeds scale. Old man comes in and saves the day rather than a new buck makes a good start for Liverpool. As a man of advanced years I …
Xabi Alonso, Thanks for the Memories

Xabi Alonso, Thanks for the Memories

"Woah-oo-ah-ah-ooo We've got the best midfield in the world! We've got Xabi Alonso, Momo Sissoko, Gerrard and Mascherano-ooo"
The good old days eh? As we enter the crunch period in the Premier League, Liverpool fans are going to have to prepare their goodbyes for Xabi Alonso, a man of beauty, on and off the ball. He may have left Liverpool in 2009, but after 149 appearances, 15 goals, 28 assists and 2 unforgettable victories in the Champions League and …
Liverpool FC: Let's See How Far We've Come

Liverpool FC: Let's See How Far We've Come

Perspective is often the rarest of commodities in football. Swept up in the bustling action of the season, results are often what matter the most. The mood of a fanbase is determined by the way their team is playing, and more importantly, whether or not they won their last three games. Winning three in a row; now that’s grounds for celebration. Losing three in a row, and the mood will be one of despair. Anything in between – and it’s …
