Jurgen Klopp's Liverpool Deserve Success

Jurgen Klopp's Liverpool Deserve Success

In 1775, amidst the uncertainty of America's fight for Independence, America's 2nd president, John Adams, wrote to his wife to advise of the struggles of the times. Adams represented approximately 1/3 of Americans at the time who believed independence was the right call and he was met with regular and stern opposition. Decisions were criticised, the small stones Adams was lifting to move the mountain were unrecognised - the people were impatient and everyone thought they knew best. Adams stuck to his …
Coutinho's Return Could Shore Up Leaky Reds

Coutinho's Return Could Shore Up Leaky Reds

A lot has been made of Phillipe Coutinho’s return to the Liverpool side, following what has been a turbulent summer for our talismanic Brazilian. Coutinho eventually made his first start of the season against Burnley, as Liverpool were held to a frustrating 1-1 draw but whilst a lot of people have talked about what Coutinho brings to the table in an attacking sense, not so much has been said about how Coutinho could be a crucial element in shoring up …
The Gini Wijnaldum Away Day Conundrum

The Gini Wijnaldum Away Day Conundrum

On 17th May 2015, as PSV Eindhoven’s game with ADO Den Haag entered injury time in the Kyocera Stadium, Georginio Wijnaldum scored to give the Rood-Witten a late goal and, subsequently, a 2-3 win. PSV were already champions and the Dutchman was soon to be on his way to the Premier League, but that goal would become significant in his career. It was to be the last time that he would score an away goal in a domestic match. Since then …
Dispelling the Myth that Klavan is Better Than Lovren

Dispelling the Myth that Klavan is Better Than Lovren

Mention the name Dejan Lovren to most Liverpool supporters and you'll be greeted with various responses many of which will be particularly negative. "He can't defend." "He's not good enough for Liverpool." "Klavan's better than him." We all know that Joel Matip is our best centre-back by a considerable margin, the man just oozes class and is a very good footballer, however, there is only one man who should partner him for the majority of this season and that's Lovren. …
The Importance of Moreno & Klopp's Biggest Success of the Summer

The Importance of Moreno & Klopp's Biggest Success of the Summer

The summer transfer window is now closed and Alberto Moreno is still a Liverpool player, this statement would've infuriated me six weeks ago. Despite not criticising the Spaniard as much as many Reds supporters I had came to the conclusion that although Moreno possesses many attributes which mean he should thrive in Klopp's Liverpool team it appeared he did not have the football brain or even attitude to want to improve and develop under the German. Although he's only started …
Liverpool 4-0 Arsenal: A Tactical Breakdown

Liverpool 4-0 Arsenal: A Tactical Breakdown

After a dominant display against Hoffenheim, Liverpool were starting to look something like the team that did so well for the first half of the 2016-17 season. Whilst Liverpool have a good record, of late, against Arsenal and the rest of the top six, there are few games that get fans so excited and worried at the same time. Arsenal though, played into Liverpool's hands with their tactical setup, and as a result Liverpool simply blew them away. We'll be …
Liverpool 1-0 Crystal Palace: A Tactical Breakdown

Liverpool 1-0 Crystal Palace: A Tactical Breakdown

After a late Watford equaliser, Liverpool's Premier League campaign was yet to really get going. A tie with bogey-team Crystal Palace hardly eased nerves, especially as reports of Coutinho's continued unhappiness, and rumours of a knock to Sadio Mané had fans on edge. Nonetheless, the performance was distinctly different to the Champions League first-leg against Hoffenheim, and the Watford match too. Yet, what we also saw were some themes and consistencies, that we may see continue to pop up throughout …
Liverpool Always One Step Behind Until they Fix Their Shaky Foundations

Liverpool Always One Step Behind Until they Fix Their Shaky Foundations

Ask any Liverpool fan, or any football fan for that matter, about where they want their team to be challenging and they’ll give you the same answer. Naturally, they want to be vying for the title, mounting an assault on the domestic cup and pushing for that all-important Champions League trophy. In order to do that, you need to have water tight foundations and carry real authority and verve going forward. Liverpool have such prowess in the final third of …
No van Dijk? No Replacement? Equals Failed Transfer Window

No van Dijk? No Replacement? Equals Failed Transfer Window

In the last three seasons the Reds have conceded 140 goals in the Premier league, that is an average of 46.7 goals a season. Simply not good enough. There's nothing better than seeing an attacking Liverpool side at their fluid, dynamic best causing havoc to opposition defences, but for the previous five years, possibly longer,  we've seen our defence capitulate all too often. 4 against Bournemouth, 3 against Leicester, 3 against Watford, 2 against a dire Sunderland side. These are …
Assessing Liverpool's Defence For The Upcoming Campaign

Assessing Liverpool's Defence For The Upcoming Campaign

Having signed Dominic Solanke and smashing the club’s record transfer fee for Mohamed Salah, Liverpool have begun identifying key weaknesses within their current side. Andy Robertson is the latest to join The Reds this summer as Jurgen Klopp looks to address what has been a troubling position for several years now. However, there remains a number of issues within the current squad, particularly in the defensive areas. So, with a new season on the horizon, how are Liverpool shaping up …
