Fitness & Depth: Liverpool's Summer Needs

With silly season upon us, every radio host, back page editor and ITK Twitter expert will be theorizing on who Liverpool might be bringing in as the Reds prepare to make their return to the Champions League. Of course with Liverpool supporters there's always the added dimension of Fenway Sports Group. Are you #FSGIN or #FSGOUT? Are FSG spending enough? Are they allowing Jurgen Klopp to build a big enough squad? Do they have enough "ambition?" Rarely in any of …
Player Ratings as Liverpool sweep past West Ham

Player Ratings as Liverpool sweep past West Ham

ONE. MORE. WIN. REDS. Excellent performance, great team selection from Klopp. Liverpool could have fourth wrapped up before Middlesbrough, but that's unlikely. We can still get third, but let's not get carried away just yet. Simon Mignolet - 6 - Early save from Fernandes set the tone for another good day, wasn't tested too much but helped himself in that regard with another number of good punches from crosses and corners. Nathaniel Clyne - 6 - Beaten early on a …
Liverpool 0 - 0 Southampton: Player Ratings

Liverpool 0 - 0 Southampton: Player Ratings

Ah, dear. More groans around Anfield as furtherpoints are dropped. No wins in three at home, haven't you heard? We'll be revisiting performances like these if Liverpool aren't at least fourth come the season finale. Simon Mignolet - 6 - A clean-sheet is the only thing to be positive about. Wasn't tested at all from shots but was commanding (again) from corners. Should have been sent off for handling outside the area, mind. That would have summed up Liverpool's day. …
Observations from Liverpool's defeat against Palace

Observations from Liverpool's defeat against Palace

Just as it looked like we were pulling clear in the race for top four, Crystal Palace rear their ugly heads again. It was so inevitable, wasn't it? Well, maybe not if you've got some optimism, something I'm certainly lacking after that performance. Can Sadio Mane have my leg? I didn't observe him, but here's what was on offer at Anfield... Top four gets that bit trickier Oh dear. If Manchester United win the derby and their games in hand, …
Liverpool 1 - 2 Crystal Palace: Player Ratings

Liverpool 1 - 2 Crystal Palace: Player Ratings

It was a case of two steps forward and one step back for Liverpool, who's Champions League hopes took an almighty blow as Christian Benteke came back to haunt his old club. After a lacklustre opening to the game, Philippe Coutinho put the hosts in front with a stunning long-range free kick to seal his 10th goal of the season. It should have been 2-0 when Roberto Firmino squared the ball to an unmarked Emre Can but the German failed …
How Liverpool Can Cope Without Sadio Mane

How Liverpool Can Cope Without Sadio Mane

Liverpool supporters are currently indulging in the stressful pastime of facing an agonising wait for the results of Sadio Mane's knee scan. Mane was taken off in the second half of the Merseyside Derby after a collision with Leighton Baines. He left Anfield without crutches - but manager Jurgen Klopp confirmed that he will be ruled out of Wednesday's clash with Bournemouth at home. This isn't the first time that Liverpool have been made redundant without their star winger. Back in …
Observations following Liverpool's 2-2 draw with Bournemouth

Observations following Liverpool's 2-2 draw with Bournemouth

Here we are, yet again. For all their attacking prowess and verve, Liverpool's abysmal record against teams in the bottom half of the Premier League table never looked like changing against Bournemouth. An early mistake from Georginio Wijnaldum was indicative of the Reds' start, with the team wasteful and wayward in possession. Goals either side of half-time from Philippe Coutinho and Divock Origi seemed to have clawed Liverpool back into the driving seat and on their way to another precious …

The January Transfer Window - A Time For Trust

And so the time is upon us once again. As December draws to a close, the sense of excitement and anticipation increases with the prospect of the of the January transfer window opening once more. Twitter is abuzz as the rumour mill goes into overdrive, irritating clickbait articles spread like a common cold and everyone throws in their two pennies worth as to who their club should or shouldn’t be signing. As a Liverpool fan, transfer windows are as exhausting …

Couti-NOOO- Who Will Step Into The Magician's Shoes?

"If we win the next game then I'll believe we can challenge for the title"- Me after every game.
If you haven't made this statement yet you're; A. wildly optimistic B. need to smile once in a while. Liverpool's impressive start to their Premier League campaign continued this weekend as the Redmen disposed of another one of the 'teams we should beat' crowd with a 2-0 victory against Sunderland at Anfield. The win meant that the Reds are …
Liverpool 2-0 Leeds United - Player Ratings

Liverpool 2-0 Leeds United - Player Ratings

On a night when Leeds United and Garry Monk did their growing reputation no harm, Liverpool booked a spot in the semi-final with a 2-0 win. Divock Origi opened the scoring, poking in a stunning cross from Trent Alexander-Arnold, but the story of the night is undoubtedly Ben Woodburn becoming the club's youngest ever goalscorer, in only his second senior appearance. Here's how the Reds fared in a potential banana-skin at Anfield. Simon Mignolet - 6 He made a very …
