Joe Gomez - A Name For The Future Or An Arrival?

Joe Gomez - A Name For The Future Or An Arrival?

There comes a day in every player’s career where they have to stop being the young lad, the starlet with potential and step up to the big arena. If you look down the list at those who have started with a reputation but have failed to build on it, it can make a sad read. Anthony Le Tallec, Florent Sinama-Pongollle, Neil Mellor and arguably Jon Flanagan have all had greatness thrust upon them but somehow fallen at the final step. …
Observations as Liverpool Frustrated by Goalless Draw with United

Observations as Liverpool Frustrated by Goalless Draw with United

Back to Premier League action after another dull international break, Liverpool dominated an in-form Manchester United side but couldn't find a way to steal all the spoils in a goalless draw. The Reds got off to a lively start, dominating the ball and pressing the opposition high up the pitch. However, the game saw another succession of missed chances for Klopp's side who were left frustrated by a Jose Mourinho shaped bus. Here are the observations from the game. Joe …
Mourinho's Double-Decker Denies the Reds - Liverpool 0 - 0 Manchester United

Mourinho's Double-Decker Denies the Reds - Liverpool 0 - 0 Manchester United

The Details Date: 14/10/2017 Venue: Anfield, Liverpool Background This game, eh? This bloody game. Especially when it's the early kick-off on a Saturday, this bloody game. The remaining happiness levels of our weekend largely depended on the following ninety minutes of football. You could argue it shouldn't, but it does. United arrive at Anfield seven points ahead of Liverpool and second in the league, just trailing City on goal difference. Liverpool have been off the boil, somewhat, since Arsenal were …
Player Ratings from Liverpool's disappointing draw against United

Player Ratings from Liverpool's disappointing draw against United

Onto the next one and all that, but after a much better attacking performance at home to Man Utd compared to last season, it's annoying that the Reds couldn't land all three points. A chance here, a chance there but always just a little lacking. Anyway, how did everyone get on individually? Simon Mignolet (6/10): As commanding as a sheep at times, with too much hesitancy on more than one occasion as Matip looked to leave the ball for him. …
A Look At Jurgen Klopp's Use Of Rotation This Season

A Look At Jurgen Klopp's Use Of Rotation This Season

The success of finishing inside the top 4 comes with the prestige of playing in Europe’s top competition -  The Champions League – being in the competition means you are competing against the best and means better players have more of a chance of joining because you are partaking. The cons of being in the Champions League are the amount of extra games you must play in a season, many credit the lack of European competition as to why Chelsea …
Klopp's Liverpool FC - Poetry in NO-tion

Klopp's Liverpool FC - Poetry in NO-tion

As the final whistle sounded away at Watford on the opening day of the season, Liverpool had come away with a point, having conceded three away goals. “Oh well, we still have a couple of weeks left to sign a defender” we said. “Van Dijk will be signed soon enough” we said. How wrong we were. Liverpool failed to place a singled bid for the Dutchman or any other defender. Instead, we signed Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, who has made one start …
Tactically Breaking Down Liverpool's Draw At Newcastle

Tactically Breaking Down Liverpool's Draw At Newcastle

Regular readers, you may have noticed that I did not write any tactical pieces for either of Liverpool's games against Leicester City, or the Spartak fixture. Sorry about that, I had some technical issues - nonetheless, I'm back now, and hope to continue with these pieces throughout the season. Like in Liverpool's previous games, against Spartak, Sevilla and Burnley, Liverpool can simply be characterised by poor finishing, and being undone by their own individual errors. Indeed, it's more of the …
The Reds Are Missing Clyne, not Virgil van Dijk

The Reds Are Missing Clyne, not Virgil van Dijk

I was watching the Liverpool match on television yesterday. Philippe Coutinho had just scored a screamer and I started jumping around. For the first time this month, we had taken the lead in a match. Unfortunately, I had to run some urgent chores for 20 minutes. When I returned, I had this eerie feeling that they would have equalised. And as predicted, the scoreline at halftime read 1-1. Watching the replay made me sick, the same type of soft sloppy …
Player Ratings as Liverpool stutter at Newcastle

Player Ratings as Liverpool stutter at Newcastle

Liverpool endured another frustrating afternoon against Newcastle this time around. The Reds entered the game in poor form, having suffered a September slump that saw them thrashed 5-0 by Manchester City, draw at home to Burnley, lose 2-0 to Leicester in the Carabao Cup and only grab a point against a far inferior Spartak Moscow in the Champions League. Things looked to be heading up when Philippe Coutinho rifled in a stunning long-range strike to put the away side ahead …
