Jurgen Klopp's "defensive" tactical tweak

Coming off the back of that defensive implosion at Wembley, something had to change. Personnel, defensive set-up, a mixture of both, just something. Throughout the week there was talk of Klopp making sweeping changes to his back line, Karius in goal, Gomez at CB and Trent back in at right-back were all credible suggestions but all fairly unlikely. Despite an enforced late change with the injured Dejan Lovren being replaced by Ragnar Klavan it looked as though the Reds would …
The Game of Errors - Spurs 4-1 Liverpool

The Game of Errors - Spurs 4-1 Liverpool

I could scarcely believe my eyes, indeed, I was predisposed to turn off the television and hide. Yet even then, I couldn't bear to even cover my eyes, and instead watched in shock as Liverpool fell apart inside 20 minutes. Twenty minutes later though, and Liverpool were a few mere minutes away from somehow getting through to half-time a single goal down, despite Spurs' early dominance, then came the killer blow; the goal that ended the match before the second-half …
Spurs 4 - 1 Liverpool: Reds well beaten in London

Spurs 4 - 1 Liverpool: Reds well beaten in London

The Details Date: 22/10/2017 Venue: Wembley Stadium, London Background Liverpool travelled to London today to take on an in-form Spurs team with the irrepressible Harry Kane the focal point of their attack. Spurs have been going from strength-to-strength in recent years and with Mauricio Pochettino at the helm, they have one of the most impressive young coaches in the game today. Liverpool, however, could come into the game with some level of confidence after their 7-0 win in Slovenia on Tuesday, …

Roberto Firmino Threatening To Silence His Admirers

Roberto Firmino Threatening To Silence His Admirers

Roberto Firmino is a wonderful footballer - let’s start off by acknowledging that. After a slow start to life at Liverpool, due mainly to Brendan Rodgers expecting him to shine as a right winger, the Brazilian has become a key figure. The 4-1 win away to Man City in November 2015 was the first time we saw exactly what he can offer, both on and off the ball, and he has thrilled us ever since. To many, he is the …
Fantasy Premier League Insight: GW7 - Strikers Paradise

Fantasy Premier League Insight: GW7 - Strikers Paradise

When was the last time we had 5 dominating strikers in #FPL  (Kane, Aguero, Lukaku, Lacazette, Morata) While the holy trinity of Kane, Aguero and Lukaku were absolute MUST haves going into GW6, were you really surprised when #FPL threw another curve ball with Morata and Lacazette stepping up with 17 and 13 points respectively? I honestly can't think of another season where we've had this many strikers performing well at the same time; it definitely has the feel of …
Daniel Sturridge: Liverpool’s Potentially World-Class Wildcard

Daniel Sturridge: Liverpool’s Potentially World-Class Wildcard

There were a couple of moments at the end of last season that seemed to save Daniel Sturridge’s Liverpool career. By the time the crucial trip to West Ham rolled around on May 14th, the general consensus was that Sturridge’s continued fitness woes had left him surplus to requirements, with a move elsewhere likely this summer. Then the vital 4-0 win at the London Stadium happened. Moment number one for Sturridge was, unsurprisingly, his expertly-taken goal that gave Liverpool a …
Do Liverpool need a new striker?

Do Liverpool need a new striker?

The 2016/17 season was, broadly speaking, a successful one. Attaining Champions League football was the bare minimum for a 'successful season', but under Klopp's leadership, the team did so. In the process, Liverpool scored 78 goals in the league, at an average of just over two per game. Coutinho and Mané both scored 13 in the league, whilst Roberto Firmino contributed with 11. Whilst it is a positive that the goalscoring burden is shared across the forward line, what Liverpool …
Is Origi pushing Sturridge out the team?

Is Origi pushing Sturridge out the team?

Is Origi finally pushing Sturridge out the team? Recent goals throw the Belgian up the pecking order. 2013/14 was an exciting season for us Reds, as we all recall. The finest talent to wear the shirt in Suarez, some ruthless, entertaining football from the entire team and a born finisher – Daniel Sturridge – brought us close to the trophy that seems eternally unobtainable. The English forward was a huge part of that near-success with 21 goals and displayed his …
Why Don't People Consider Firmino to be a Complete Striker?

Why Don't People Consider Firmino to be a Complete Striker?

Originally, a False 9 was a lone striker who, instead of staying high up the pitch like a traditional striker, would drop into midfield and look to drag the centre-back pairing into areas they weren't comfortable in to enable teammates to exploit the space they had created. Cesc Fabregas played it for Spain. Pep Guardiola used Lionel Messi in that role. Francesco Totti excelled in it for Roma. Even Manchester United used a variation of it with when they had Wayne …
