Believe, Doubters - Klopp Is Driving LFC Onwards

Believe, Doubters - Klopp Is Driving LFC Onwards

At Anfield yesterday, after a creditable objective had been achieved by Liverpool, as cute children in replica kits tottered wide-eyed after their fathers, and as an intoxicating relief had flooded the famous old stadium, Lucas Leiva said some words into a microphone, whilst clutching a small memorial in the shape of the number 21 he has worn for a decade. The famously amiable Brazilian was struggling to master his emotions. His wife had long-since given up the fight, sobbing as …
Mignolet And Milner Staying Positive

Mignolet And Milner Staying Positive

I've been thinking about building a shelter. You know, a proper, dug out of the ground, own generator, multi-roomed, stocked-to-the-hilt-with-provisions-for-the-zombie-apocalypse type of shelter. Like that one in The Road that Viggo Mortensen and his kid have a few days of brief respite in, before reengaging with cannibalistic crazies and a decaying post-apocalyptic world. The notion's been knocking around in my head for a while but every time I watch the filtered and edited guff that passes for news on television, …
Klopp And Lucas Bond Over Derby Win

Klopp And Lucas Bond Over Derby Win

It's been such an emotionally confusing weekend, friends, has it not? Clearly, the dominant feeling has been the sheer exultation in victory over Everton, in what was, for this columnist, the most crucial derby in years. The nature of that win, the mental toughness the Redmen showed and the imposition of their superior quality on a fierce local rival, was even more pleasing than relief that came with the attainment of crucial points in a round of the Barclay's Premier …
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 …
Yes, Klopp Is To Blame. Now What?

Yes, Klopp Is To Blame. Now What?

"Consistency is to do what you have to do always. We’ve brought ourselves into a situation where everyone can doubt our attitude. That’s really our fault, our mistake and nobody else’s." Jürgen Klopp
If you're bothering to read anything associated with Liverpool FC this morning then you are either calm enough to put football into some kind of perspective or frenzied enough to actively search for something to rail against and deride. Either way, you are welcome here. There will …
Klopp And Can Have A Plan

Klopp And Can Have A Plan

Here at Latest News, we have an agenda. It is not a Trumpian agenda. There is no snake oil being sold. It's just that, without straying into self-delusion and inaccuracy, this column will always aim to present what's new around Liverpool Football club in the most positive way possible. Granted, the very fabric of that policy had nearly been rent asunder by the awfulness of the first six weeks of 2017, but here we remain, with a big daft grins …
Liverpool's Blunt Midfield Needs Sharpening

Liverpool's Blunt Midfield Needs Sharpening

Ever since the 2-0 defeat at the hands of Burnley in the second game of the Premier League season there have been concerns as to whether or not Liverpool can break down teams who look to park the bus. It's been a slow burner with the Reds putting the likes of Leicester City, Watford and Hull City to sword in an aggregate win of 15-3. But over recent weeks it's become apparent Klopp's men do in fact have difficulty breaking teams down. …
Liverpool lack imagination to overcome Hull City

Liverpool lack imagination to overcome Hull City

It is fair to say that Liverpool have been a disappointment at the start of 2017. They have been knocked out of both domestic cups with losses to Wolves in the FA Cup and Southampton in the EFL Cup. Along with the poor form in the cup Liverpool have yet to win a league match this year with draws against Manchester United, Sunderland and Chelsea and a loss to Swansea City. Prior to the turn of the year there was …
Wounded Liverpool Welcome Wolves to Anfield | FA Cup 4th Round Preview

Wounded Liverpool Welcome Wolves to Anfield | FA Cup 4th Round Preview

To say that Liverpool are wounded is an understatement. Talks of a crisis may yet be premature, but there are certainly chinks in the armour that Jurgen Klopp needs to rectify as soon as he possibly can. They welcome a Wolverhampton Wanderers side who have blown hot and cold recently. They beat Stoke in the previous round of the FA Cup, and followed that up by beating Aston Villa in the Championship. But their most recent game was a 3-1 …
Liverpool Are Lacking Nastiness & Winners In Their Ranks

Liverpool Are Lacking Nastiness & Winners In Their Ranks

In Liverpool's heartbreaking 3-3 draw with Crystal Palace in 2014, Philippe Coutinho had a great chance to haul down Yannick Bolasie in his own half with the score at 3-1. He chose not to, Bolasie broke away and Dwight Gayle eventually made it 3-2. It was a perfect example of the Reds failing to be masters of the dark arts, and it has been an issue for a number of years. Watching Liverpool's increasingly faltering season is painful right now, …
