2018-19 Premier League fixture reaction. The season we win it?

2018-19 Premier League fixture reaction. The season we win it?

With the recent disappointment of the proposed Nabil Fekir signing falling through, Liverpool fans have been in need of a distraction to take their minds off the circus that the transfer window rumour mill. Not only is the World Cup due to begin today (hooray football is back!), but the 2018-19 Premier League fixture list has also been released. As a fan base, we have the tendency to dwell on frustrations of the past, so the 2018-19 fixture list is …
Organising Chaos Against Real Madrid

Organising Chaos Against Real Madrid

I shared a thread on Twitter recently about my thoughts on how Liverpool can beat Real Madrid, and it received such positive feedback that I’ve decided to expand on it here. The thread is linked below for those that want to check it out: https://twitter.com/DistanceCovered/status/996345845749637120 Now, as I’ve mentioned in the thread, the key factor when determining whether Liverpool are likely to win against any opponent is whether the opposing team is vulnerable in transition or not. Liverpool are gradually …
Win!

Win!

Though I know I'll never lose affection For people and things that went before I know I'll often stop and think about them In my life, I love you more Allow me to explain if you will. You’ll need coffee. Tissues optional. Heart necessary. Fortitude compulsory. If 2011 was the season that started me, this season could so simply have been the one that finished me. Back then, so many years ago, I became a father for the first time. …
Liverpool's European Hangover - Statistical Analysis

Liverpool's European Hangover - Statistical Analysis

The Reds are marching on Kiev! What a week, what an achievement! Jurgen Klopp managed to reach his second European final with Liverpool in his second European campaign. Hopefully this time he takes the team a step further than the last time around. The German is yet to lose at Anfield in Europe - a truly remarkable run. With all the excitement surrounding our success in the Champions League, it's easy to dismiss the lack of such domestically. Ahead of …
Klopp, Liverpool, and How Emotion Conquered Perfection

Klopp, Liverpool, and How Emotion Conquered Perfection

Ah, the word “passion.” Somewhat overused in the day and age of exposition, Liverpool Football Club has something of a connection to the idea of pure, unadulterated passion in the vast landscape that is football. Everything is magnified tenfold, because of its relation to everything else in the football sphere. So, when people marry the word “passion” with Liverpool; the fabled atmosphere, the manager, what are they actually saying? What use is passion, really, in a game so dominated by …
Why defeat to United is only a footnote in Klopp's Liverpool story

Why defeat to United is only a footnote in Klopp's Liverpool story

Old Trafford hasn't been a happy hunting ground for Liverpool over the years. This weekend's result ensured that remained the case. United did what United do and took their chances and then held on for dear life. Our rivals were aided and abetted by a criminally incompetent refereeing performance. How Craig Pawson can call himself a professional referee is beyond me. More pain at United Defeat to United hurts more than perhaps any other team. When Klopp's Liverpool side plays …
Observations from a disappointing afternoon | Man Utd 2-1 Liverpool

Observations from a disappointing afternoon | Man Utd 2-1 Liverpool

Liverpool made their way to Old Trafford in the best of form as the Premier League's marquee fixture finally lived up to its billing, with the Red Devils emerging 2-1 victors. Marcus Rashford's first-half brace put Manchester United in command, but Liverpool didn't give up without a fight. Eric Bailly's calamitous own goal gave Liverpool some hope, but there was to be no further joy for the Reds, as United defended like only a Jose Mourinho side can. Here are some key highlights …
Man Utd 2-1 Liverpool: Craig Pawson Inspires Utd Win As Controversy Rules All

Man Utd 2-1 Liverpool: Craig Pawson Inspires Utd Win As Controversy Rules All

Games between Liverpool and Manchester United at Old Trafford tend to follow a certain narrative with a free-flowing attacking unit coming up against a double-decker bus. Then there's the referee who's never too far from the headlines. This game was no different, providing the perfect illustration of a Mourinho-Klopp showdown in an affair dominated by controversy. The first-half displayed the not-so-impressive side of Liverpool; Dejan Lovren did Dejan Lovren things after spouting his mouth pre-match about forming a formidable partnership …
Player Ratings as United take 3 points at Old Trafford

Player Ratings as United take 3 points at Old Trafford

Liverpool were so 'un-Liverpool' like in attack, and so 'Liverpool' in their defence as they slumped to defeat at Old Trafford. The second half was a better performance and the ref was a nutcase, but that does not take away a shambolic defensive performance in first half. Loris Karius (5) - Left high and dry for both his goals. Made an excellent late tackle high up the pitch as Liverpool looked to salvage a point. Trent Alexander Arnold (2) - Horrid game …
Manchester United v Liverpool Preview - Key Battles

Manchester United v Liverpool Preview - Key Battles

Liverpool travel to the Old Enemies' den on Saturday, in what will possibly be the defining encounter in the race to be the best of the rest in the Premier League. Manchester United are on a high after Nemanja Matic's injury-time thunderbolt gave them a big win at Selhurst Park against Crystal Palace. Liverpool, on their part, are still riding the crest of the wave, remaining unbeaten since the FA Cup defeat to West Brom at the end of January. …
