Observations from Liverpool's win over Burnley

Observations from Liverpool's win over Burnley

It was as though Liverpool, Jurgen Klopp, and the players, set out to troll the fans today. The 2-1 win over Burnley was by no means pretty but three points are three points no matter how you pick them up. At the end of the day, the team did what they had to do to pick up the all-important victory. As the game headed into first-half added time it was as though the players had read the majority of drafts …
Three Potential Signings for Liverpool this summer

Three Potential Signings for Liverpool this summer

As is always the case with a club that are almost exclusively in transition between coaches and have a relatively high turnover of players in their squad, Liverpool and their fans are inundated with links to players from around the globe. Whether it is agent posturing, touting his players’ availability around in the media in order to garner interest, or journalists making stabs in the dark, however, the vast majority of these links are unfounded and ultimately come to nothing. …
Liverpool's Plan B: Tactical Tweaking of 4-2-3-1?

Liverpool's Plan B: Tactical Tweaking of 4-2-3-1?

It’s not exactly been the best start to 2017 for Liverpool, with their dismal January form continuing for much of February. An impressive win against Premier League rivals Tottenham ought to have provided a platform with which to build on heading into the business end of the season. However, Liverpool once again failed to impress against relegation threatened opposition, with their performance almost an exact replica of previous defeats to Swansea, Wolves and Bournemouth. Once again, it was a tail …
Which Liverpool players are playing for their futures?

Which Liverpool players are playing for their futures?

Following last Monday evening's defeat against Leicester City at the King Power stadium, Jurgen Klopp stated everyone was playing for their futures from now on. Liverpool's fall from grace in 2017 has been devastating having picked up just three victories since the turn of the new year. Poor performance after poor performance has put the starting XI under huge criticism and some of the players' positions in the squad have now come under pressure with the summer transfer window looming. But …
Leicester must be a watershed game for Klopp

Leicester must be a watershed game for Klopp

They say you shouldn't write about your team when you're angry and after that abject display against Leicester, I was both furious and embarrassed. Therefore, I thought it best to take some time before reflecting on the game. Unfortunately, 48 hours has done little to quell my emotions. I have unashamedly been an advocate of Jürgen Klopp for years and was elated at his appointment. Make no mistake, I am still delighted he is our manager and I have absolute …
Why criticism of Nathaniel Clyne is justified

Why criticism of Nathaniel Clyne is justified

Liverpool's performances of late have been nothing short of uninspiring and a number of players have come under criticism in recent weeks. The usual names of Dejan Lovren, Lucas Leiva, Emre Can and Simon Mignolet have been ringing out on social media but in 2017, Nathaniel Clyne has joined the group of players receiving criticism. A lot of it has been justified too. The right-back joined the Reds for just £12.5 million in 2015 which at the time, was a …
Liverpool v Arsenal Preview - Key Battles

Liverpool v Arsenal Preview - Key Battles

After a humbling defeat at Leicester on Monday, Liverpool are back with a huge Premier League game at Anfield on Saturday. Arsenal are the visitors and Jurgen Klopp's men will hope that their wonderful form against the top-six this season continues. It will be a challenge though. The Reds are once again expected to be without Jordan Henderson and Dejan Lovren's fitness is still uncertain. The captain, in particular, was missed against Leicester, as the midfield was easily overrun by …
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

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 …
