Organising Chaos Against Real Madrid

Organising Chaos Against Real Madrid

I shared a thread on Twitter recently about my thoughts on how Liverpool can beat Real Madrid, and it received such positive feedback that I’ve decided to expand on it here. The thread is linked below for those that want to check it out: https://twitter.com/DistanceCovered/status/996345845749637120 Now, as I’ve mentioned in the thread, the key factor when determining whether Liverpool are likely to win against any opponent is whether the opposing team is vulnerable in transition or not. Liverpool are gradually …
Why Pepijn Lijnders Would be the Ideal Buvač Successor

Why Pepijn Lijnders Would be the Ideal Buvač Successor

Liverpool refuse to do things the easy way. 5-2 up in a Champions League semi-final ahead of the second leg, Jürgen Klopp would surely have been less restless had his side already confirmed a top four place, but alas the looming figure that is the tie in Rome seemed to provide enough distraction for Stoke to slip away with a point. Surely, focus was in order. Then news broke that Klopp’s assistant coach – one of the two men who …
Dejan Lovren Silences Critics on Memorable Night in Manchester

Dejan Lovren Silences Critics on Memorable Night in Manchester

For someone who has worked his way to the top of his profession, Dejan Lovren doesn’t half receive endless abuse. He is an international footballer who plays for Liverpool, which in my eyes, makes you fairly decent at what you do for a living. I am fully aware that it's all relative, and that he should not be treated like a mere mortal who plays a bit of seven-a-side now and again, but the flack he receives is still ludicrously …
Klopp, Liverpool, and How Emotion Conquered Perfection

Klopp, Liverpool, and How Emotion Conquered Perfection

Ah, the word “passion.” Somewhat overused in the day and age of exposition, Liverpool Football Club has something of a connection to the idea of pure, unadulterated passion in the vast landscape that is football. Everything is magnified tenfold, because of its relation to everything else in the football sphere. So, when people marry the word “passion” with Liverpool; the fabled atmosphere, the manager, what are they actually saying? What use is passion, really, in a game so dominated by …
Observations as Liverpool Surge into Champions League Semi-Finals

Observations as Liverpool Surge into Champions League Semi-Finals

Liverpool battled from behind at The Etihad to record a 2-1 win in the second-leg of the Champions League quarter-final, taking one step closer to Kiev. A goal inside two minutes set the pulses racing as Manchester City came out all guns play, with Liverpool unable to string any momentum together in an attempt to gain some respite. There was an element of luck involved in ensuring the score-line remained just 1-0 as Leroy Sane saw his goal wiped out …

Key Stats from Liverpool 3-0 City - What a Night!

Key Stats from Liverpool 3-0 City - What a Night!

Liverpool pulled off one of their best results in years with a phenomenal 3-0 win over soon to be Premier League Champions Man City. But what were the key stats from an incredible night? Defensive Solidity When We Need It Most We’ll come to the attacking side of Liverpool’s game in a moment, but their stoic, impenetrable defence may not have won them the game, but it’s probably won them the tie. Man City were restricted to eleven shots, six …
Liverpool 3-0 City: We're All Believers Now

Liverpool 3-0 City: We're All Believers Now

Watching Liverpool put on a tactical masterclass against Pep Guardiola from a darkened discotheque in Barranquilla, Colombia where I'm visiting family, was something I’ll never forget. I celebrated goals over iced-beer with a bunch of local Liverpool supporters who don’t let distance or language stop them from supporting a club that has more “alma,” soul, than any other European club. People are taking days off of work to see the Reds play on the other side of the world, and …
