Red Rant: What Are Liverpool Building?

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?

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. …
Observations as Liverpool Frustrated by Goalless Draw with United

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 …
Liverpool Tactics for United: Out-Manoeuvring Mourinho

Liverpool Tactics for United: Out-Manoeuvring Mourinho

With the nervous energy ticking over as we approach Saturday's game, what follows are some musings on the United game. We drew with United twice last season and struggled to create chances against them, such is Mourinho's mastery at controlling and limiting space against top quality opposition. We continue to struggle against the parked bus, and the fact that United are stronger than us following the transfer window means, in our current form, getting anything out of Saturday's game will …
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.) …
Liverpool in Crisis? Really?

Liverpool in Crisis? Really?

One thing that identifies Liverpool supporters and possibly sets us apart from others is the sheer range of emotions when it comes to following the club. For example, you’ll often hear talk of us ‘being by far the greatest team the world has ever seen’ even when we languish in 7th place with a solitary victory in seven games. On the other hand, there are people who are talking like this is the worst Liverpool side/manager/owners the club have had in …
Klopp's Liverpool FC - Poetry in NO-tion

Klopp's Liverpool FC - Poetry in NO-tion

As the final whistle sounded away at Watford on the opening day of the season, Liverpool had come away with a point, having conceded three away goals. “Oh well, we still have a couple of weeks left to sign a defender” we said. “Van Dijk will be signed soon enough” we said. How wrong we were. Liverpool failed to place a singled bid for the Dutchman or any other defender. Instead, we signed Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, who has made one start …
Confessions of a Liverpool Fan - From Believer To Doubter

Confessions of a Liverpool Fan - From Believer To Doubter

There’s nothing out there in the various podcasts, social media sphere, online articles, etc. that has not already been said about Liverpool’s recent stretch of mediocre performances. Like others, I detect the range of emotions expressed by Liverpool supporters. Truth be told, there are times I want to believe those who espouse the view that we’re doing reasonably well under the circumstances and we’re only 1 or 2 or 3 points away from such and such a place on the …
Luck, Pressure and Balls: Newcastle 1 Liverpool 1

Luck, Pressure and Balls: Newcastle 1 Liverpool 1

On a podcast last week I speculated about the forthcoming Newcastle game and said that I had absolutely no idea what to expect. We could lose, we could beat the Geordies to such an extent that they’d need counselling to deal with it or we could draw a humdrum borefest which would cure the more entrenched case of insomnia. It turns out that it was all three. We lost inasmuch as it feels like a defeat, we won because we …
The Klopp Project (Part 1): Great Expectations

The Klopp Project (Part 1): Great Expectations

So. Liverpool Football Club. This great club of ours. Steeped in history and tradition, but in many ways still a sleeping giant on the biggest stage. A club that hasn't won the top domestic prize for 27 years, a club whose fans have developed a perhaps unhealthy obsession with winning league title number 19 and the club's first league title in the Premier League era. The question everyone wants to know is how long do we have to wait? Of …
