Why This Summer Is Genuinely Liverpool's Biggest In Recent Memory

Why This Summer Is Genuinely Liverpool's Biggest In Recent Memory

I know that some of you will have read that headline, tutted to yourself and thought, “we say that every year”. You’re right, to be fair. Every summer that comes along, we tell ourselves that this is the one that will see Liverpool reach the next level. The one that will finally end the wait for that elusive Premier League title. We said it in 2002, 2009 and 2014, following the Reds’ best attempts at lifting the trophy since its …

How Alberto Moreno Could Help Break Buses

It must be said, Liverpool have been on and off lately. That’s putting it rather mildly. To have such fantastic showings against Chelsea and Spurs, and then to produce…whatever THAT was against Wolverhampton and Hull; it’s indicative of a side with a fantastic plan A – one that gets the better of most teams who want the ball, but without a proper plan B. Of course; the idea that every football team necessarily needs a plan B when things aren’t …
Defensive Deja Vu for Liverpool

Defensive Deja Vu for Liverpool

Defeat to Hull City meant Liverpool's disastrous start to 2017 continued. Jurgen Klopp's men have won just one of their 10 matches since the turn of the year and this run has seen relegation battlers Hull and Swansea pick up maximum points against them as well as having their FA Cup run brought to a premature end at the hands of Wolves, at Anfield. Fingers are being pointed and scapegoats are being identified. Emre Can isn't good enough to start. Dejan …

Observations from Liverpool's draw against Chelsea

Observations from Liverpool's draw against Chelsea

"Encouraging" That's one way to describe the performance in the second-half tonight against Chelsea. It wasn't the swash-buckling, all action, interchangeable attack we'd become accustomed to earlier on in the season but there were signs it was awakening from a winter slumber. There was movement, incisive passing and an attacking edge that we'd been lacking in recent weeks and it was good to see. We made Chelsea, the runaway league leaders, look average. That, in itself, is quite the feat. …

Liverpool vs Chelsea Preview - Key Battles

Liverpool vs Chelsea Preview - Key Battles

Liverpool are having an absolutely wretched January as they welcome the leaders Chelsea to Anfield. Liverpool have lost three home games in a row for the first time since 2012 and they would dearly want to ensure the streak does not extend to four. The below are the key battles to look forward to in this blockbuster fixture. LIVERPOOL MIDFIELD vs MATIC/KANTE Klopp has preferred to line up with a midfield three in almost all of the games, hence it …
Are the Wheels Coming Off Liverpool's Season?

Are the Wheels Coming Off Liverpool's Season?

Defeat at home to Swansea was tough to take, a real bitter pill to swallow. January has been a poor month for Liverpool, both from a result and performance perspective. I’ve been quite philosophical about things this year, not wanting to get too carried away by defeats or victories. I’ve long been of the opinion that we are a work in progress under Jürgen Klopp and our over achieving early this season has resulted in some excessive expectations from some. …
Why it would be a mistake to let Emre Can go

Why it would be a mistake to let Emre Can go

The Liverpool Echo hosted a Q&A on Tuesday and James Pearce revealed that Emre Can might be leaving Liverpool in the summer. “I wouldn’t say Emre Can is definitely off but his future is certainly up in the air, “He has been stalling over a new contract and clearly believes he’s worth more than Liverpool are offering. “Hopefully it will be sorted before the end of the season. If he doesn’t sign then it’s likely he will be sold because …
