Analysing Liverpool's Season Player By Player

Analysing Liverpool's Season Player By Player

And breathe... A confident and composed 3-0 victory at home to Middlesbrough confirmed Liverpool's spot in the top-four. A clear sign of progression for Jurgen Klopp's first full season in charge at the club, and a platform from which summer transfer dealings will likely stem. With the season now drawn to a close, it's time to take a look at Liverpool's players and assess their campaigns as a whole. Goalkeepers Simon Mignolet – 7 Mignolet has gone from strength to …
How The Perfect Liverpool Squad Should Look Next Season

How The Perfect Liverpool Squad Should Look Next Season

Another season has been and gone, but unlike so many at Liverpool since they decided to stop winning everything, 2016/17 has left us with a feeling of great warmth. The Reds’ title challenge may have fizzled out after a very promising first four months, but sealing Champions League qualification has to be seen as a huge positive. It is very easy for Liverpool fans to have a sense of entitlement, given the club’s incredible history both domestically and in Europe, …
Believe, Doubters - Klopp Is Driving LFC Onwards

Believe, Doubters - Klopp Is Driving LFC Onwards

At Anfield yesterday, after a creditable objective had been achieved by Liverpool, as cute children in replica kits tottered wide-eyed after their fathers, and as an intoxicating relief had flooded the famous old stadium, Lucas Leiva said some words into a microphone, whilst clutching a small memorial in the shape of the number 21 he has worn for a decade. The famously amiable Brazilian was struggling to master his emotions. His wife had long-since given up the fight, sobbing as …
All Or Nothing For Klopp And The Reds

All Or Nothing For Klopp And The Reds

"A war of attrition, competition, competition, competition," he said. "This means a fight for everything week in, week out," he elaborated, but it turned out that Jürgen Klopp was not describing the ferocious rivalry between the members of the Liverpool squad to get cast in the latest Nivea television ad, a B-Movie fever dream which features Nathaniel Clyne lasciviously soaping himself and James Milner being crushed under the foot of some sort of monster. I'm not even joking, click the link. …
Candidates for Liverpool's MOTM vs West Ham

Candidates for Liverpool's MOTM vs West Ham

Liverpool took one step closer to Champions League qualification for next season with a convincing 4-0 victory away at West Ham. The Reds went into this game knowing they simply had to win their remaining two games against the Hammers and already relegated Middlesbrough to seal Champions League qualification - but it wasn't to be easy against an in form West Ham side. They had kept three consecutive home clean sheets for the first time since 2010 - and with …
Top Four: Who Wants It Least?

Top Four: Who Wants It Least?

Initially, as I grimaced in recollection of the season's third-last serving of delicious Barclay's goodness, it was tempting to liken Liverpool's struggles to make any progress to the myth of Sisyphus - you know, the unfortunate chap punished by the gods of the Greeks for his offences against them. His sentence was to push a huge boulder to the top of a hill, only to see it roll back down every time and know he must start over. For eternity. …
Candidates For Liverpool's MOTM Against Watford

Candidates For Liverpool's MOTM Against Watford

Liverpool edged one huge step closer to qualification for the Champions League proper next term with a hard-fought 1-0 away win at Watford. Emre Can scored the solitary goal that separated the two sides - and I really cannot quite put the strike from the German into comprehensible words. In what was a first half deprived of any clear-cut opportunities (bar Lallana's strike which looped onto the post), Can sent the whole football sphere into stunned silence when his acrobatic scissor-kick …
Liverpool v Crystal Palace Preview - Key Battles

Liverpool v Crystal Palace Preview - Key Battles

Four wins and two draws from the set six Premier League games have meant that Liverpool have ensured the top 4 place is in their own hands, but that counts for nothing, if the Reds do not take as many points as possible from their remaining games. Among the teams battling for the Champions League places, Liverpool definitely have the most favorable run-in, but the problem is, football is never played on paper. The challenge for the Reds begins with …
The Case for Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain

The Case for Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain

Ahh, the summer time. Predominantly known for its pleasant weather, or, if you’re an avid football fan, the sheer amount of back and forth information – more often than not false – being spread amongst this curious concept known as the “rumour mill.” Which takes us to the man in question. The rumour being spoken about is that of Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain’s potential move from Arsenal to Liverpool. It’s gained traction after a couple of reliable sources began to spin the …
Can Klopp Find The Right Folks To Win Trophies?

Can Klopp Find The Right Folks To Win Trophies?

Bitter experience brings us all, inevitably, to the same conclusion - for the most part, people are awful. Now, optimistic philanthropist that you are, lovely reader, you may be bristling at such apparent negativity, but that is only because you are one of the good ones. You simply cannot conceive of the ugliness that resides in the souls of so many. Or perhaps you have been blessed by the veritable lottery win that is a life of generally positive interactions …
