The International Break Proves To Be Just That For Liverpool

The International Break Proves To Be Just That For Liverpool

A lot has been made of Liverpool over the international break. A lot has been made of the potential use of a new formation, a lot has been made of the return to fitness of our full squad and what that means, something that this article will address quite heavily, and a lot has been made of where Liverpool’s season is at after a good run of results following a disastrous defeat to Spurs. But this article is more focused …
Liverpool's Full Strength Attacking Options

Liverpool's Full Strength Attacking Options

At no point this season has it seemed like Liverpool have had all their best players available. A "back injury" for Coutinho, a suspension and a pulled hamstring for Mane and a lengthy injury to Lallana meant that players in the starting XI were moved around to accommodate for the missing names. The biggest area to take a hit due to injuries was the midfield, whilst we could still field a strong three of Henderson, Can and Wijnaldum it didn't …
Klopp's Stubbornness is Undermining His Elite Manager Tag

Klopp's Stubbornness is Undermining His Elite Manager Tag

A regular feature anytime Klopp's Liverpool are in some form of a slump is the Rodgers-Klopp points comparison after so and so matches. It is a favourite whipping stick of a section of British pundits. Those stats are used without context as a dagger through the heart of another "foreigner" who has taken "the job" of a promising British coach. Richard Keys tweeted the updated version of this stat just after the Spurs loss. After Liverpool's draw against Newcastle in …
Gini Wijnaldum - Improve Or Be Dropped

Gini Wijnaldum - Improve Or Be Dropped

I'm not usually a fan of criticising or singling out a player for a poor performance - especially considering the reactionary nature of some Liverpool supporters on social media or at the stadium. However, a string of below-par performances simply cannot be ignored. And in Georginio Wijnaldum's case, it's no different. The Rotterdam-born central midfielder has a dexterous side to his game, but he also at times fails to stand up and be counted. The Dutchman signed for Liverpool in …
Liverpool Tactics for United: Out-Manoeuvring Mourinho

Liverpool Tactics for United: Out-Manoeuvring Mourinho

With the nervous energy ticking over as we approach Saturday's game, what follows are some musings on the United game. We drew with United twice last season and struggled to create chances against them, such is Mourinho's mastery at controlling and limiting space against top quality opposition. We continue to struggle against the parked bus, and the fact that United are stronger than us following the transfer window means, in our current form, getting anything out of Saturday's game will …
Liverpool vs Manchester United - Premier League Match Preview

Liverpool vs Manchester United - Premier League Match Preview

THE DETAILS Venue – Anfield, Liverpool Referee – Martin Atkinson Date & Time – Saturday, October 14th 2017 @ 12:30 BST FORM To put it simply, Man United are red hot. Liverpool aren't. United have drawn one game in the season so far, a 2-2 away draw at Stoke, and have won all their other games. Liverpool have had only one win since beating Arsenal 4-0 before the last international break. The reversal of fortunes that the previous international fortnight …
Adam Lallana's Return Can't Come Soon Enough For Liverpool

Adam Lallana's Return Can't Come Soon Enough For Liverpool

Liverpool fans’ perception of Adam Lallana is a funny old thing. When he plays, he’s largely underappreciated and criticised for the smallest of mistakes. Yet, when he’s out of action and on the injury table, there seems to be a new-found affection for the Englishman. Such is the case now, where, for all Liverpool’s quality in the attacking department, Lallana’s absence has left a gaping hole in Jurgen Klopp’s side. The 29-year-old is so often the catalyst in the middle …
A Look At Jurgen Klopp's Use Of Rotation This Season

A Look At Jurgen Klopp's Use Of Rotation This Season

The success of finishing inside the top 4 comes with the prestige of playing in Europe’s top competition -  The Champions League – being in the competition means you are competing against the best and means better players have more of a chance of joining because you are partaking. The cons of being in the Champions League are the amount of extra games you must play in a season, many credit the lack of European competition as to why Chelsea …
Do Liverpool FC Really Lack Leaders?

Do Liverpool FC Really Lack Leaders?

Liverpool doesn’t have any leaders on the pitch… Or so the argument goes lately amongst the club's supporters. But, is that really true. Is leadership what the Reds are lacking? A quick glance at Liverpool’s squad and you’ll notice several players who have been chosen as captains by other managers, other teams, international and club sides. Jordan Henderson isn’t just Liverpool’s captain, he’s England’s captain. Phil Coutinho was selected as Brazil’s captain for the first time over the summer. Gini …
Return Of Under-Appreciated Lallana Key For Liverpool

Return Of Under-Appreciated Lallana Key For Liverpool

The brilliance of this Liverpool team is its attack, with Jurgen Klopp a naturally positive manager who thrives off his players performing with fluency and freedom. The Reds’ defending may have left plenty to be desired under the charismatic German, but his side have produced some truly great attacking performances in the two years since he took charge. One man who has often been a catalyst in these displays, and everything good about Liverpool’s relentless style, is Adam Lallana. The …
