Do Liverpool FC Really Lack Leaders?

Do Liverpool FC Really Lack Leaders?

Liverpool doesn’t have any leaders on the pitch… Or so the argument goes lately amongst the club's supporters. But, is that really true. Is leadership what the Reds are lacking? A quick glance at Liverpool’s squad and you’ll notice several players who have been chosen as captains by other managers, other teams, international and club sides. Jordan Henderson isn’t just Liverpool’s captain, he’s England’s captain. Phil Coutinho was selected as Brazil’s captain for the first time over the summer. Gini …
The Gini Wijnaldum Away Day Conundrum

The Gini Wijnaldum Away Day Conundrum

On 17th May 2015, as PSV Eindhoven’s game with ADO Den Haag entered injury time in the Kyocera Stadium, Georginio Wijnaldum scored to give the Rood-Witten a late goal and, subsequently, a 2-3 win. PSV were already champions and the Dutchman was soon to be on his way to the Premier League, but that goal would become significant in his career. It was to be the last time that he would score an away goal in a domestic match. Since then …
Liverpool FC: A Reality Check

Liverpool FC: A Reality Check

Just 24 hrs ago, many of us were relishing the prospect of  Mane, Salah and Firmino tearing apart the likes of Otamendi and Stones. 4 wins in 5 matches in August had all but made us title contenders. We had the "best" attack in the league. We had a midfield trio that out"pressed" anything and everything in its path. We didn't need Coutinho because there was no place for him in the starting XI at this rate. Exactly 24 hours …

Mignolet Benching An Encouraging Sign

Mignolet Benching An Encouraging Sign

Leading up to the Sunday match against Arsenal rumors started spreading about Simon Mignolet being not only benched, but completely out of the squad in favor of Danny Ward and Loris Karius. Why is Klopp doing this?  That’s so unfair to Simon!  The Twitter grievances started to flow, calling out Liverpool’s manager for seemingly reckless behavior. In his pre-match presser, Klopp confirmed the rumour, but stated, “We spoke about it yesterday. It’s just that I want him to have a …
Why bigger challenges than Hoffenheim lie ahead for Emre Can

Why bigger challenges than Hoffenheim lie ahead for Emre Can

Okay, first things first. Liverpool Football Club have got to tie Emre Can down with a new deal ASAP. There is no two ways about that. From the potential that Can has shown, it is clear that he has it in him to become a superstar midfielder. The man has the ability to do everything you need from a midfielder, be it as a no. 6 or as a box-to-box midfieder. Against Hoffenheim, the third goal encapsulated what Can is …
Have We Just Witnessed Anfield’s Greatest Team Goal?

Have We Just Witnessed Anfield’s Greatest Team Goal?

Nostalgia is a wonderful thing in life - we all love harping back to the past and convince ourselves they will forever be the best days. When it comes to selecting the greatest, most significant things to have happened in sport, art, science, nature and whatever you can think of, we invariably go way back in time, relatively speaking. In film, it is seen as a sin if you don’t consider Citizen Kane, Casablanca and Gone with the Wind as …
Roberto Firmino's Masterclass Must Win Him More Admirers

Roberto Firmino's Masterclass Must Win Him More Admirers

Liverpool were sensational at times against Hoffenheim as they reached the Champions League group stage on Wednesday, playing the kind of football that any Reds team throughout history would have been proud of. The way in which Jurgen Klopp’s side blew their naive opponents away at Anfield, especially in the first-half, really was a sight to behold, and we can now look forward to more great European nights on Merseyside. This is a competition made for both Klopp and Liverpool …
Liverpool v Arsenal Preview - Key Battles

Liverpool v Arsenal Preview - Key Battles

Liverpool are back in the Champions League proper. The draw for the group stages could have been far worse than it has ended up being, but for now, that doesn't matter. What matters is Sunday evening at Anfield, for the first high-profile Premier League game of the season. When Arsenal came to Anfield last season - in early March - they were in turmoil. They had just been beaten 5-1 at the Allianz Arena, and it looked like that could …
