Liverpool v AS Roma Preview - Key Battles

Liverpool v AS Roma Preview - Key Battles

Let's get the cliche out of the way first - These are the nights that we live for!  A Champions League semifinal night is coming to Anfield for the first time in ten years, and even Roma would be daft to expect anything other than a raucous, relentless night in the stands. Liverpool slipped up at the weekend though, as shoddy defending cost them two points, as the Reds let a two-goal slip, with shoddy defending at the end of the …

Liverpool Battle History Against the Baggies

Liverpool Battle History Against the Baggies

Liverpool head out to face bottom dweller who has recently changed managers. Liverpool head home having improbably dropped points and all positive vibes go out the window. Surely we’re now performing so well that this type of almost predictable disappointment is no longer possible. West Brom has rescued 4 points from their last two matches, and for all of that hard work against Swansea and Manchester United, they still sit effectively 3 wins from safety with four to play. Swansea …

Virgil van Dijk and Liverpool's Defensive Resurgence

Virgil van Dijk and Liverpool's Defensive Resurgence

Liverpool’s bumbling back-line was the subject of intense, often deserved, criticism in the early part of the season, but improvements since the turn of the year have been drastic. Now the much-maligned individuals, and indeed the manager who was slammed for supposedly failing to address this debilitating weakness, are due some considerable praise. It’s important to emphasise two points. First of all, these long-term problems are, of course, some way from being solved. Still, this defence seems prone to the …
The Klopp Revolution

The Klopp Revolution

The year is 2016, the date April 14th. Liverpool welcomed hordes of Dortmund fans as they flooded the city. The Germans had finally landed on English soil. It is the second leg of the Europa League Quarter-final, with Liverpool managing the all-important away goal in a 1-1 draw at the Westfalenstadion the week previous. The fans greeted the team bus with vigour and joy not seen since the 13/14 season when the league seemed within our grasp. The Liverpool fans …
Dejan Lovren Silences Critics on Memorable Night in Manchester

Dejan Lovren Silences Critics on Memorable Night in Manchester

For someone who has worked his way to the top of his profession, Dejan Lovren doesn’t half receive endless abuse. He is an international footballer who plays for Liverpool, which in my eyes, makes you fairly decent at what you do for a living. I am fully aware that it's all relative, and that he should not be treated like a mere mortal who plays a bit of seven-a-side now and again, but the flack he receives is still ludicrously …

Two of those four victories were against Manchester City. Three clean sheets and only two goals conceded in those five games - twelve goals scored. Liverpool have plenty of …
Liverpool and that Semi-final feeling again

Liverpool and that Semi-final feeling again

When I watched Ryan Babel sprint past a tired Cesc Fabregas to finish off an incredible Champions League night, little did I know it was going to take me that long to experience that feeling again. That feeling! That feeling of being in the semi-final of the UEFA Champions League. That feeling is back again, thanks to a bunch of heroes led by Jurgen Klopp. That feeling is just made all the more special by the happenings of the last ten …
Observations as Liverpool Surge into Champions League Semi-Finals

Observations as Liverpool Surge into Champions League Semi-Finals

Liverpool battled from behind at The Etihad to record a 2-1 win in the second-leg of the Champions League quarter-final, taking one step closer to Kiev. A goal inside two minutes set the pulses racing as Manchester City came out all guns play, with Liverpool unable to string any momentum together in an attempt to gain some respite. There was an element of luck involved in ensuring the score-line remained just 1-0 as Leroy Sane saw his goal wiped out …
