Dejan Lovren: The Buck Doesn't Stop There

Dejan Lovren: The Buck Doesn't Stop There

Sometime after 4.15pm yesterday, a collection of mumbles, conversations and downright vitriol ran around the away section at Wembley. ‘He’s got to take him off.’ ‘We’re going to get battered here. Fuck’s sake, Jurgen.’ ‘Get that useless twat off now!’ Later on some people speculated that Dejan Lovren’s was the worst performance ever given by a Liverpool player. That got me thinking. My mind flew to a John Arne Riise display at Craven Cottage years ago when I seriously wondered …
What do we expect to see of Jon Flanagan?

What do we expect to see of Jon Flanagan?

Once hailed the ‘Scouse Cafu’ for his solid season in 2013/14, in which he played Left Back for the majority of the season, Jon Flanagan now finds himself Liverpool’s fourth choice Right Back.  He earned himself a call-up to England’s World Cup team for his terrific campaign, albeit he only made an appearance coming off the bench in a warm-up friendly against Ecuador. Just how has he found himself become so low in the pecking order? Through no fault of …
Trent Alexander-Arnold: A Star is Born

Trent Alexander-Arnold: A Star is Born

I remember watching Robbie Threlfall in a Youth Cup final between Liverpool and Man United in 2007, and convincing myself he was going to be a future Reds great. I can hear some of you asking who on earth Robbie Threlfall is. The defender starred in Liverpool’s march to glory that year, scoring in the final of the second-leg at Old Trafford, and big things were expected. Threlfall never made the grade at Anfield, as you may have guessed - …
Who starts at right-back for Liverpool against Watford?

Who starts at right-back for Liverpool against Watford?

With Nathaniel Clyne set to miss Liverpool’s opening Premier League fixture against Watford next Saturday, having failed to feature prominently in pre-season due to hamstring and back injurie, Jurgen Klopp will have a decision to make at the back. The boss has already confirmed that Alexander-Arnold, Joe Gomez and Jon Flanagan are in contention for a starting berth, with all three players having featured over the last few games ahead of the 2017/18 campaign. So then, who starts at right-back …
Do these loan players have a future with the Reds?

Do these loan players have a future with the Reds?

There are a number of notable players currently enjoying spells away from Anfield, but with only three months left of the season, will they be welcomed back into the squad come the summer or will they be shipped out again, temporarily or permanently? There are currently 13 senior players out on loan; ranging from former PSG captain Mamadou Sakho at Crystal Palace to 22-year-old striker Jack Dunn at Tranmere Rovers. Some of them are quality players who just needed game …
Jurgen Klopp - Master of Psychology

Jurgen Klopp - Master of Psychology

"Lying is a common communication strategy" (Zuckerman) All managers are liars. They have to be if they want to be a successful manager in the modern game. These days they're expected to keep the fans on side, win the game of chess against the media and keep their players happy.  It's a juggling act that some struggle to balance. The more conniving they are, the more successful they tend to be. It's not a bad thing, after all, honesty isn't always …
Still Spaces To Fill At Liverpool - A Left Back Please

Still Spaces To Fill At Liverpool - A Left Back Please

AI writers have got together and what will follow will be a series of articles where in an ideal world scenario, if we could still have one further acquisition to enhance the Liverpool playing squad who would it be, and what position would that player fill. As we know Liverpool have been very busy in the off season bringing in a number of players, in attacking positions  we now have numerous options to cause opponents problems, and how Jurgen Klopp …
Jon Flanagan: Does He Deserve A Chance?

Jon Flanagan: Does He Deserve A Chance?

All fans have their favourites and also those players they feel are not up to the playing standards to play for the club they support passionately. One of those players who divides opinion amongst fans is Liverpool born full-back Jon Flanagan. Flanagan, 23, has only recently returned to playing following an injury to his left knee which sidelined the player for 18 months.  Even when he returned to playing in January 2016 in an FA Cup match against Exeter City, …
Why Liverpool should bin Jon Flanagan

Why Liverpool should bin Jon Flanagan

After nearly two seasons out with injury, Jon Flanagan made a much awaited comeback from his injury in February. But, things haven't exactly gone to plan for the young Scouser. Expectations were no doubt high from Flanagan, given what he had achieved before he got injured at the end of the 2013-2014 season. In a squad that looked very strong, the left back position was the one that needed able hands to be in, and Flanagan stepped in wonderfully, relegating the more experienced José Enrique …
Is It a Bird? Is It a Plane? No, It's Super-Flan!

Is It a Bird? Is It a Plane? No, It's Super-Flan!

As another round of transfer window madness sets in, the rumour mill is already in overdrive. Seriously, I used to be okay with the window, but that was pre-Twitter when we lived in much quieter less bullshit-riddled times. Of course every hushed tone player rumour, once kept to the smoky backroom of the local, now booms onto Twitter via some in-the-know who usually knows sweet FA, and triggers a ripple of retweets that quickly grows into a tidal wave before …
