Observations from an easy Liverpool win in Slovenia

Observations from an easy Liverpool win in Slovenia

Ah, that was nice, wasn't it? When was the last time Liverpool played and nails weren't being bitten in the minutes leading up to full-time? It was just one of those nights in Slovenia as the Reds (Weird Oranges?) put seven past a sorry Maribor. The nails were being bitten for about four minutes. Once Bobby Firmino put Liverpool up by a goal, there was really only one way the match was heading. One more goal from Firmino, a couple …

Player Ratings as Liverpool Destroy Maribor

Well, that was more like it. Liverpool have been left frustrated time and time again over the past few weeks, with poor finishing and individual errors costing them dear in both the Premier League and Champions League. However, that wasn't the case on Tuesday evening as Jurgen Klopp's side delivered a stomping away performance to record the highest away win in Europe. Putting seven goals past Maribor, The Reds were simply unplayable going forward with the usual suspects of Philippe …

Maribor 0 - 7 Liverpool: Seven in Slovenia for Rampant Reds!

The Details Date: 17/10/17 Venue: Stadion Ljudski vrt, Maribor, Slovenia Background After opening the group stages with two consecutive draws, in games that they really should have won, Liverpool needed to stop sharing the spoils. The Reds were in danger of losing out on the vital top spot to Sevilla if they didn't pick up their form soon. One win in eight in all competitions for Klopp's men meant that this trip to Slovenia could not be taken lightly. Maribor were …

Red Rant: What Are Liverpool Building?

Imagine you’re building a new house.  You’re not physically building it of course, but you’ve hired professionals to do it.  A few months in you stop by the property to see how things are progressing and you find the project far behind schedule. You ask the contractor to explain why the electricity doesn’t work.  He says the electrical guy doesn’t know how to run wiring, but he does know how to set up a surround sound system. Well, what about the plumbing?  Well, he …

Joe Gomez - A Name For The Future Or An Arrival?

There comes a day in every player’s career where they have to stop being the young lad, the starlet with potential and step up to the big arena. If you look down the list at those who have started with a reputation but have failed to build on it, it can make a sad read. Anthony Le Tallec, Florent Sinama-Pongollle, Neil Mellor and arguably Jon Flanagan have all had greatness thrust upon them but somehow fallen at the final step. …
Tactical Breakdown of Liverpool's Draw with Man Utd

Tactical Breakdown of Liverpool's Draw with Man Utd

This is always the most nerve-racking match of the season. It's certainly a match that gets to me: I can barely eat on the morning of a match against United. But after two back-to-back drab draws at Anfield, maybe it's time to reassess if it's worth it all... That's not to say there was not much riding on the game though, with Mané out, Liverpool stuck in a rut and both Manchester clubs totting up and impressive number of points, …

Observations as Liverpool Frustrated by Goalless Draw with United

Back to Premier League action after another dull international break, Liverpool dominated an in-form Manchester United side but couldn't find a way to steal all the spoils in a goalless draw. The Reds got off to a lively start, dominating the ball and pressing the opposition high up the pitch. However, the game saw another succession of missed chances for Klopp's side who were left frustrated by a Jose Mourinho shaped bus. Here are the observations from the game. Joe …

Mourinho's Double-Decker Denies the Reds - Liverpool 0 - 0 Manchester United

The Details Date: 14/10/2017 Venue: Anfield, Liverpool Background This game, eh? This bloody game. Especially when it's the early kick-off on a Saturday, this bloody game. The remaining happiness levels of our weekend largely depended on the following ninety minutes of football. You could argue it shouldn't, but it does. United arrive at Anfield seven points ahead of Liverpool and second in the league, just trailing City on goal difference. Liverpool have been off the boil, somewhat, since Arsenal were …
Player Ratings from Liverpool's disappointing draw against United

Player Ratings from Liverpool's disappointing draw against United

Onto the next one and all that, but after a much better attacking performance at home to Man Utd compared to last season, it's annoying that the Reds couldn't land all three points. A chance here, a chance there but always just a little lacking. Anyway, how did everyone get on individually? Simon Mignolet (6/10): As commanding as a sheep at times, with too much hesitancy on more than one occasion as Matip looked to leave the ball for him. …
