No Communication Breakdown At Anfield

No Communication Breakdown At Anfield

Late to the party, as ever, it was only last night that this columnist had the joy of seeing Denis Villeneuve's Arrival. Obviously, the beauty of the cinematography and profundity of the film's themes were the things that continued to resonate on this morning's drive to work, but yesterday, as I watched Amy Adams' linguist try to decipher the complex language and symbology of the visiting heptapods, I was struck by how disappointing it is to see former interpreter, Jose Mourinho, still …
Nathaniel Clyne: A Competent Defender Who Lacks A Cutting Edge

Nathaniel Clyne: A Competent Defender Who Lacks A Cutting Edge

With Liverpool's season riddled with inconsistencies, it's only normal for some of the personnel to come under fire. Nathaniel Clyne is the latest in a long line of players who have had their futures questioned of late, but is it justified? Joining from Southampton for a fee of £12.5million, the England international has become a regular feature in Jurgen Klopp's side, registering a total of 52 appearances last season. Not only that, the right-back was producing at a consistent level …
Liverpool's Under-Fire Full-Backs Must Deliver Against Man City's Flying Wingers

Liverpool's Under-Fire Full-Backs Must Deliver Against Man City's Flying Wingers

Few players are less fashionable in the modern game than Nathaniel Clyne and James Milner. In an era when Football Manager, FIFA and statistics-based websites such as Squawka and WhoScored allow any football fans to proclaim themselves experts on any player across Europe, who really cares about two functional English full-backs? The snobbery against British players can become a little tiresome at times - just imagine how much more praise Adam Lallana would receive if he was Spanish - but …
Philippe Coutinho: A Phenomenal Talent Squandered on the Wing

Philippe Coutinho: A Phenomenal Talent Squandered on the Wing

Philippe Coutinho has risen to the potential and exceeded the expectations fans had of him since joining Liverpool FC. After signing from Inter Milan in 2013, the little Brazilian has proven to be worth much more than the 8.5 million pounds paid for him. He has been Liverpool’s Player of the Year the last two years in a row and has won the Samba Gold Award as Europe’s best Brazilian player overcoming the likes of Neymar, Douglas Costa and fellow …
Emre Can shows he still has something to offer the Liverpool midfield

Emre Can shows he still has something to offer the Liverpool midfield

Liverpool's win over Arsenal on Saturday was filled with a lot of standout performances and memorable moments. Sadio Mane was rightly lauded for yet another goal, Roberto Firmino looked back to his best and Adam Lallana was praised for the fact he was practically everywhere throughout the match. Reds boss Jurgen Klopp even reserved special praise for the latter in his post match interview.
“When we are compact, it is really nice to have Adam because he jumps out of compact …
Table-Gazing: Where Will Liverpool Finish?

Table-Gazing: Where Will Liverpool Finish?

Sometimes, the worst thing you can do is look at the league table. The very worst. In fact, because I care about you, lovely reader, don't look at the league table. This morning, unnaturally early, Latest News gave what was supposed to be a brief, fact-checking glance at the Barclay's Premier standing of the Redmen. There was a column to be written and it's only polite to be passably informed before wittering away at you. Fifteen angst-ridden minutes later, a …
Yes, Klopp Is To Blame. Now What?

Yes, Klopp Is To Blame. Now What?

"Consistency is to do what you have to do always. We’ve brought ourselves into a situation where everyone can doubt our attitude. That’s really our fault, our mistake and nobody else’s." Jürgen Klopp
If you're bothering to read anything associated with Liverpool FC this morning then you are either calm enough to put football into some kind of perspective or frenzied enough to actively search for something to rail against and deride. Either way, you are welcome here. There will …
Alexander-Arnold Looking Very Much At Home

Alexander-Arnold Looking Very Much At Home

James Baldwin once wrote that "perhaps home is not a place but an irrevocable condition." People, by nature, attach a massive significance to the concept of where we belong. We struggle all our lives with trying to reconcile the spectrum of emotions that our native place can evoke in us. Indifference, hatred, fierce pride - we feel them all if we live long enough. If you're a foreign fan of Liverpool FC, you'll have encountered both the warmth of the …
Defensive Deja Vu for Liverpool

Defensive Deja Vu for Liverpool

Defeat to Hull City meant Liverpool's disastrous start to 2017 continued. Jurgen Klopp's men have won just one of their 10 matches since the turn of the year and this run has seen relegation battlers Hull and Swansea pick up maximum points against them as well as having their FA Cup run brought to a premature end at the hands of Wolves, at Anfield. Fingers are being pointed and scapegoats are being identified. Emre Can isn't good enough to start. Dejan …
