Liverpool v AS Roma Preview - Key Battles

Liverpool v AS Roma Preview - Key Battles

Let's get the cliche out of the way first - These are the nights that we live for!  A Champions League semifinal night is coming to Anfield for the first time in ten years, and even Roma would be daft to expect anything other than a raucous, relentless night in the stands. Liverpool slipped up at the weekend though, as shoddy defending cost them two points, as the Reds let a two-goal slip, with shoddy defending at the end of the …

Do Liverpool Still Need to Replace Phil Coutinho?

Do Liverpool Still Need to Replace Phil Coutinho?

Euphoria, that’s the feeling washing over most of the Liverpool supporter-sphere at the moment. Their front three are reaching meteoric heights, and their devastating influence on games has become a staple of both the Premier League and Champions League. Teams now fear Liverpool, not simply because of the goalscoring prowess, but also the knowledge that it is now harder to breach what used to be a shaky back-line. Liverpool bought the most expensive defender in world football to help fix …
Roberto Firmino: The Most Underrated Player In The Premier League?

Roberto Firmino: The Most Underrated Player In The Premier League?

Liverpool have played home to some illustrious talents over the years: Ian Rush, Kenny Dalglish, Robbie Fowler, Steven Gerrard and Luis Suarez are names that roll straight off the tongue while other far more under-appreciated stars lie in wait. Dirk Kuyt was very much of that ilk. Far from the most technically gifted player at the club, the Dutchman was always up for the big occasion, scoring the winning penalty in the Champions League semi-final against Chelsea back in 2007 …
Liverpool Battle History Against the Baggies

Liverpool Battle History Against the Baggies

Liverpool head out to face bottom dweller who has recently changed managers. Liverpool head home having improbably dropped points and all positive vibes go out the window. Surely we’re now performing so well that this type of almost predictable disappointment is no longer possible. West Brom has rescued 4 points from their last two matches, and for all of that hard work against Swansea and Manchester United, they still sit effectively 3 wins from safety with four to play. Swansea …

James' Bond: The Importance of Being Milner

James' Bond: The Importance of Being Milner

It’s the 79th minute of the hectic league game between Liverpool and Manchester City. The Reds had fought City in the early exchanges before going a bit mad with second-half goals from ‘the trident’ of Mane, Salah and Firmino. They lead 4-1. On the Anfield touchline, Jurgen Klopp decides to swap Emre Can for former City player James Milner. No one argues at this. City are coming back into the game and seem annoyingly undeterred by the score-line. Furthermore, Liverpool …
Virgil van Dijk and Liverpool's Defensive Resurgence

Virgil van Dijk and Liverpool's Defensive Resurgence

Liverpool’s bumbling back-line was the subject of intense, often deserved, criticism in the early part of the season, but improvements since the turn of the year have been drastic. Now the much-maligned individuals, and indeed the manager who was slammed for supposedly failing to address this debilitating weakness, are due some considerable praise. It’s important to emphasise two points. First of all, these long-term problems are, of course, some way from being solved. Still, this defence seems prone to the …
Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain - The Perfect Klopp Midfielder

Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain - The Perfect Klopp Midfielder

As a raw teenager at Southampton in the 2010-11 season, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain carved out a reputation as one of the hottest prospects in English football. A clamour for his signature ensued in the Summer of 2011, and it was Arsenal who staved off interest from a number of suiters by completing the signing of the exciting teenager. At the time, Arsenal had a strong reputation for developing young talent. So it was understandable that the youngster chose to ply his …
The Klopp Revolution

The Klopp Revolution

The year is 2016, the date April 14th. Liverpool welcomed hordes of Dortmund fans as they flooded the city. The Germans had finally landed on English soil. It is the second leg of the Europa League Quarter-final, with Liverpool managing the all-important away goal in a 1-1 draw at the Westfalenstadion the week previous. The fans greeted the team bus with vigour and joy not seen since the 13/14 season when the league seemed within our grasp. The Liverpool fans …
