Liverpool 2017/18 - What Does Success Look Like?

Liverpool 2017/18 - What Does Success Look Like?

The Goodison derby is and will always be my favourite game of the year. I’ve been to pretty much every ground in the division (I’m already hoping Huddersfield stay up as I can’t make that game this season) and nothing comes close. I’ve seen us win, draw and lose there since the 1980s and the atmosphere is still palpable. Derby days matter. And the best bit of that day comes before kick off when we bawl at each other from …
Liverpool's Attack - A Stats Analysis

Liverpool's Attack - A Stats Analysis

After a string a good results the struggles of September and October are seemingly gone. The mighty Reds are on a 3 game winning streak in all tournaments that saw them score 10 goals and concede just 1. A lot of supporters and writers urged patience during the string of underwhelming results in autumn throwing around expected goals. And indeed even without the more advanced statistic the Reds fired blanks on too many occasions - failing to win several games …
Divock Origi: Liverpool's Forgotten Belgian

Divock Origi: Liverpool's Forgotten Belgian

With Liverpool blessed with plenty of attacking talent in the form of Mohamed Salah, Sadio Mane, Roberto Firmino and Daniel Sturridge, Divock Origi’s season-long loan to Wolfsburg carries a lot of importance in terms of how his future on Merseyside will pan out. Failure to make an impact could spell the beginning of the end for the Belgian while a string of consistent and eye-catching performances could keep him in Klopp’s long-term plans. Having signed back in 2014, featuring in …
Crisis? What Crisis at Liverpool FC?

Crisis? What Crisis at Liverpool FC?

At the start of the season I made a rather large and controversial defence of Liverpool’s ability to win the title this season with the current squad. Here in November, 12 points off the pace, that’s looking increasingly like a pipedream, but I stand by the majority of the points that I made in the article. In terms of opponents, the only Premier League team that we are currently miles behind is Man City, a possibility that I suggested, with …
The Other Liverpool Way - A look at Liverpool's Goal Differential

The Other Liverpool Way - A look at Liverpool's Goal Differential

The halt in league games for the international break means a pause in the glories to glow about and the follies to frown about with regards to Liverpool Football Club’s on-field exploits. So while it was tempting to look up some old videos of the glory days or highlights of some awesome Liverpool goals, I have actually been preoccupied a fair bit thinking about defence. Yes, I know, somewhat of a boring subject if I may say so. (Just kidding.) …

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 …
Tactical Breakdown of Liverpool's draw against Burnley

Tactical Breakdown of Liverpool's draw against Burnley

Liverpool's draw against Burnley was an intensely frustrating affair, bearing the hallmarks of Liverpool's troubles during the 2016/17 league campaign, and several preceding it. Liverpool dominated with the ball and had 35 efforts yet only created one 'big' chance, and Burnley were actually the closest to scoring, as Liverpool, again, switched off defensively for a set-piece. However, with seven changes from the previous game, and with both Philippe Coutinho and Daniel Sturridge starting, Liverpool played differently, and today; other than the …
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 …
