Liverpool FC Fixtures Analysis 2017/18

Liverpool FC Fixtures Analysis 2017/18

So, with the fixtures out for the 2017/18 season, the initial reaction from Liverpool fans would have been a quick glance to see who we play on the opening day, working out when we play Man United and Everton, and other than that, probably just a bit of a shrug. It’s a reasonably uninspiring fixture list, with no incredibly nice runs but no horrendous patches either. There are, of course, some headline moments: Arsenal and Man City back to back …

Van Dijk Saga Embarrassing For All Involved

Van Dijk Saga Embarrassing For All Involved

What started as a hugely optimistic week in Liverpool’s summer transfer plans has come crashing down in the most embarrassing fashion. On Monday, Liverpool were hopeful of agreeing a fee for Mohamed Salah, with the Egyptian high on the list of priorities to add some extra fire power to Jurgen’s team ahead of a new campaign. With 19 goals this season in all competitions, Salah would bring acceleration and flair to the table - two ideal assets in breaking down …
All Or Nothing For Klopp And The Reds

All Or Nothing For Klopp And The Reds

"A war of attrition, competition, competition, competition," he said. "This means a fight for everything week in, week out," he elaborated, but it turned out that Jürgen Klopp was not describing the ferocious rivalry between the members of the Liverpool squad to get cast in the latest Nivea television ad, a B-Movie fever dream which features Nathaniel Clyne lasciviously soaping himself and James Milner being crushed under the foot of some sort of monster. I'm not even joking, click the link. …

Stand And Deliver: Coutinho Back For Final Push

Stand And Deliver: Coutinho Back For Final Push

Following the announcement yesterday that the Centenary Stand will soon bear the exalted name of Kenny Dalglish, it was interesting to note the response from some fans. For many of an older vintage, like your columnist, there was an understandably emotional reaction to the honouring of a man we had worshipped on the field and in the dugout, a man as vital to our identification with Liverpool Football Club as Bill Shankly would have been for the generation before us. I …

Daniel Sturridge: Talent Plagued By Injury

Daniel Sturridge: Talent Plagued By Injury

Jurgen Klopp’s one word answer regarding Daniel Sturridge’s fitness after the disappointing 2-1 defeat to Crystal Palace provides the perfect summary of his Liverpool career. Injury stricken, the England international has been side-lined for a staggering 640 days since the 2011/12 season – the 9th worst record in the Premier League. It means he’s missed over 50% of Liverpool’s games since joining 3 and a half years ago. Making the move over to Merseyside in January 2013, Sturridge represented somewhat …
