The Bobby Dazzler Gets Just Rewards for a Stellar Season

So, a video wherein a contract was signed without looking, and said person proceeded to leave the room whistling ‘Allez Allez Allez’. Liverpool’s announcement of Roberto Firmino extending his contract for five more years was about as Roberto Firmino as it could get. Firmino isn’t about being normal. Be it his role on the pitch, his importance to Jurgen Klopp’s systems, the no-look finishes, the Kung-Fu kicks and the dances in celebrations, it’s almost like Roberto Firmino is there to …

How Much Longer Can Harry Wilson Go Unnoticed?

"Curiouser and curiouser!" Cried Alice. She was so much surprised, that for the moment she quite forgot how to speak good English."
An apt start to an article for a player who raises a lot of questions. Liverpool have a great track record of producing some fine young talents, with Jurgen Klopp no stranger to giving players a chance in the first-team.

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's Underappreciated Midfield

Liverpool's Underappreciated Midfield

The consensus of this Liverpool team seems to be that the three attackers are world class, our defence still needs some serious work (although the emergence of Robbo, the signing of VVD and the form of Karius are mitigating this) and our midfield is … alright. The subject of our midfield is an interesting one, mostly because of the common criticisms and worries about our players. The most consistent criticism of our midfield is that it lacks an explosive punch, …

Liverpool 3-0 Manchester City: A Tactical Breakdown

Fine lines. The thinnest of margins. The point at which dreamland meets bedlam. Where delirium bisects mayhem. That's where Liverpool fans found themselves as they watched the unthinkable happen. Liverpool had pressed Manchester City into submission in January, but Pep Guardiola, the greatest manager and tactical innovator of his generation would surely not let it happen again, would he? Acutely aware of the pressing prowess of Liverpool, Guardiola set City up with Fernandinho in the same position as he was in …

Roberto Firmino - How Good Is He?

Bobby Firmino. A player with so much to offer Liverpool. Bobby is a huge component of what Jürgen Klopp is trying to build for so many reasons, and he’s having an absolutely terrific season as he starts to fulfil his potential in this team. Whilst Mo Salah has been rightfully grabbing the majority of the headlines, Bobby has been doing what Bobby does best: going about his work. And now many are starting to reckon that Liverpool’s number nine is …
Anfield The Key To Securing Top Four Again

Anfield The Key To Securing Top Four Again

With just eight games now remaining in Liverpool’s Premier League campaign and the Reds sitting 4th, four points clear of 5th place Chelsea and with a trip to Stamford Bridge to come, Liverpool’s season very much remains in the balance, not to mention the Champions League quarter-final that the Reds have to look forward to at the start of April. 76 points is the mark that keeps being brought up as a target and it’s fair to suggest that at least …
