Can Liverpool compete on both Domestic & European fronts?

Can Liverpool compete on both Domestic & European fronts?

As Liverpool's fixture list becomes increasingly congested with the Reds facing the prospect of a game every three days or so, the time is right to ask whether Liverpool can compete on both domestic and European fronts. With Man City over 10 points ahead of Liverpool it is unrealistic to suggest we can win the league but there is no reason why we can't be aiming to finish as high as second. A finish outside of the top 4 would, …
Liverpool’s Business With Southampton: A Success?

Liverpool’s Business With Southampton: A Success?

This weekend see a surprise rivalry take place at Anfield - one that has only really caught fire in the last three years. Liverpool and Southampton do battle, in what has become commonly known as the “We’re Sick Of You Taking Our Players Derby". Saints have, perhaps understandably, been irked by the Reds consistently snatching their star men away from them in recent times, and there seems to an added effort on their part whenever the two sides meet. You …
FSG – Follow The Moores and Cash In

FSG – Follow The Moores and Cash In

When the Moores family put their majority stake in Liverpool Football Club up for sale in 2003, it was largely driven by an acceptance that they simply could not compete with rivals’ riches. Writing to The Times in May 2010, just over three years after his ill-fated decision to sell to Tom Hicks and George Gillett, David Moores explained, “The decision to sell was taken in 2003, when it became clear that greater investment in the club was needed than …
Crisis? What Crisis at Liverpool FC?

Crisis? What Crisis at Liverpool FC?

At the start of the season I made a rather large and controversial defence of Liverpool’s ability to win the title this season with the current squad. Here in November, 12 points off the pace, that’s looking increasingly like a pipedream, but I stand by the majority of the points that I made in the article. In terms of opponents, the only Premier League team that we are currently miles behind is Man City, a possibility that I suggested, with …
Is the record-breaking thrashing of Maribor the start to Liverpool’s season?

Is the record-breaking thrashing of Maribor the start to Liverpool’s season?

It was coming. Somebody was due a thrashing from the twenty-odd shots a game Redmen. Unfortunately for Liverpool's Champions League opponents Maribor, they were the unlucky recipients. They were well and truly put to the torch. Liverpool's 7-0 victory the highest away score of any English team in Europe, in history. The tonking/smashing/beatdown/destruction (insert word of choice for 'tearing apart of opposition') of Slovenia's champions was a result long coming. Liverpool have felt on the verge of this - this …

Fantasy Premier League Insight: GW9 - City Flying

With GW8 behind us, let's reflect on what transpired and MY WORD! what a game week. All the focus was on Anfield as two Juggernauts did battle; the match itself was a let down as it finished honours even. The games to follow produced some of the more unexpected results Man City once again showed us why they are pretty much nailed on for the title, smacking seven goals past Stoke City. Even with Aguero out, City assets just keep …

Klopp the Tactician: From Dortmund to Liverpool

Klopp the Tactician: From Dortmund to Liverpool

Following on from my three-part series "The Klopp Project" which took a longer-term view on things (select the links for part 1, part 2 and part 3), I thought I would assess where Jurgen Klopp is in the present moment. Klopp the innovative tactician in Germany has been well documented. But what about Klopp the tactician at Liverpool? In assessing his time at LFC, we have to throw the conventional rules out the window. Klopp's system does not rely on …
A Look At Jurgen Klopp's Use Of Rotation This Season

A Look At Jurgen Klopp's Use Of Rotation This Season

The success of finishing inside the top 4 comes with the prestige of playing in Europe’s top competition -  The Champions League – being in the competition means you are competing against the best and means better players have more of a chance of joining because you are partaking. The cons of being in the Champions League are the amount of extra games you must play in a season, many credit the lack of European competition as to why Chelsea …
Daniel Sturridge: Past His Best But Badly Misunderstood

Daniel Sturridge: Past His Best But Badly Misunderstood

That 1-1 draw at Newcastle on Sunday was infuriating enough, but talkSPORT then decided to spout their usual bile. I say talkSPORT, but in this case it was an individual - Mr Deadline Day himself, Jim White, who presents a morning show on the station during the week. Taking to his twitter account on Monday, White asked the question:
"Talking Daniel Sturridge @talkSPORT right now! Is his attitude holding him back and is his time @LFC coming to an …
