Title Obsession Is Clouding Liverpool Supporters’ Judgement Of 2016/17

Title Obsession Is Clouding Liverpool Supporters’ Judgement Of 2016/17

Few sets of supporters crave something as much as Liverpool fans crave a league title. It really is a drug.  For 27 years, we have waited and waited for the curse to end, but unlike most footballing records, this one seems destined to last forever.  We have had to watch Man United dominate the English game for two decades, while Chelsea, Arsenal and Man City have also notched up nine league titles between them. Even Blackburn and Leicester have had …
Predicting The Final Top Six: Where Will Liverpool Finish?

Predicting The Final Top Six: Where Will Liverpool Finish?

Chelsea may be cruising towards the Premier League title in a frustratingly ruthless fashion, but there is still a huge amount to fight for at the top of the table. Granted, securing a top-four finish should never be seen as a giant achievement for a club of Liverpool’s stature, but being in next season’s Champions League is of huge importance. Rarely has the battle to qualify for Europe’s most lucrative and rewarding club competition been so exciting and unpredictable, with …
Liverpool and Manchester City: Similarities and Momentum

Liverpool and Manchester City: Similarities and Momentum

This is the story of two sides. One is full of quality throughout their starting XI. It’s brimming with pace and verve on the occasions when everything works, yet with a soft underbelly and a stuttering approach to the game when things run the other way. They’re more than capable of going on a run to fire them up the league, but are somehow riveted with doubts and mental weakness when the going gets tough. Understandable, given that their manager …

Liverpool's Under-Fire Full-Backs Must Deliver Against Man City's Flying Wingers

Liverpool's Under-Fire Full-Backs Must Deliver Against Man City's Flying Wingers

Few players are less fashionable in the modern game than Nathaniel Clyne and James Milner. In an era when Football Manager, FIFA and statistics-based websites such as Squawka and WhoScored allow any football fans to proclaim themselves experts on any player across Europe, who really cares about two functional English full-backs? The snobbery against British players can become a little tiresome at times - just imagine how much more praise Adam Lallana would receive if he was Spanish - but …
Philippe Coutinho Failing In Quest To Be World-Class

Philippe Coutinho Failing In Quest To Be World-Class

What defines world-class? Every football supporter has a different way of seeing it. To some, it is only those truly elite players like Lionel Messi, Cristiano Ronaldo, Luis Suarez and Neymar, while others could name 100 who fit into that bracket. For me, it is someone in and around the top 10 players in the world in their respective position - someone who produces the goods almost every week and rarely hits a genuinely poor spell in form. Manuel Neuer, …
This is how Liverpool qualify for the Champions League

This is how Liverpool qualify for the Champions League

Liverpool need 77 points to qualify for next seasons champions league, that's not my words, a "super computer" has taken the rest of the fixtures of all the top 6 teams and worked out all the possible results and the team to get 77 points will 100% qualify for the Champions League. With 76 points, you're 94% chance of getting it. Last season, Man City got 4th with 66 points! Liverpool, right now have 52 points. That means we have …
Are Liverpool really THAT bad against the Premier League’s weaker teams?

Are Liverpool really THAT bad against the Premier League’s weaker teams?

Make no bones about it, Liverpool are far better against their top-four rivals than those in the bottom-half of the Premier League. The statistics show that, and we can see with our own eyes that that is the case. The Reds have undoubtedly been poor when a number of so-called lesser teams have stood before them this season, which has proved incredibly frustrating, especially when the title looked achievable at one point. Too often for opposing managers, it has been …
Wijnaldum A Better Fit For Liverpool Than Emre Can

Wijnaldum A Better Fit For Liverpool Than Emre Can

After a positive 1-1 draw with runaway leaders Chelsea, many thought Liverpool had turned a corner, putting their dismal January form behind them to kick on and fight for a top four spot. However, the predictability with which Liverpool slumped to a 2-0 defeat against Hull City marked a new low for Jurgen Klopp’s side, who are in serious risk of their season fizzling out into nothing. Much of the pre-match talk was about the return of Adam Lallana, Sadio …
Sunderland 2 Liverpool 2 - I'm Furious With You All!

Sunderland 2 Liverpool 2 - I'm Furious With You All!

Heads have gone. Absolutely gone. Liverpool drew 2-2 with one of the worst sides in recent Premiership history and the people are furious. Come full time, Twitter and Facebook became a modern day version of George Orwell’s Two Minute Hate. ‘How typical of us to beat City and then not beat a Moyes side!’ ‘Good riddance, Lucas!’ ‘That’s the league gone! We’ll never catch Chelsea now!’ I read those words on the night of the Sunderland game (that being the …
