Creativity from Liverpool's midfield....where is it?

Creativity from Liverpool's midfield....where is it?

After dominating yet another game of football in the league but not doing enough to win it, questions need to be asked as to where our creativity is coming from. Yes, we're creating chances & should be more clinical in front of goal but are we anywhere near our fluid and devastating best...not a chance! This time last season we had scored 18 goals and looked like a real force, this year we've scored four goals fewer and still look …

Liverpool Tactics for United: Out-Manoeuvring Mourinho

Liverpool Tactics for United: Out-Manoeuvring Mourinho

With the nervous energy ticking over as we approach Saturday's game, what follows are some musings on the United game. We drew with United twice last season and struggled to create chances against them, such is Mourinho's mastery at controlling and limiting space against top quality opposition. We continue to struggle against the parked bus, and the fact that United are stronger than us following the transfer window means, in our current form, getting anything out of Saturday's game will …
Two Years of Jurgen Klopp

Two Years of Jurgen Klopp

October 8th, 2015 was the day Jurgen Klopp stepped into his role as Liverpool F.C. manager.

Adam Lallana's Return Can't Come Soon Enough For Liverpool

Adam Lallana's Return Can't Come Soon Enough For Liverpool

Liverpool fans’ perception of Adam Lallana is a funny old thing. When he plays, he’s largely underappreciated and criticised for the smallest of mistakes. Yet, when he’s out of action and on the injury table, there seems to be a new-found affection for the Englishman. Such is the case now, where, for all Liverpool’s quality in the attacking department, Lallana’s absence has left a gaping hole in Jurgen Klopp’s side. The 29-year-old is so often the catalyst in the middle …
Liverpool Fans Need to Stay Calm

Liverpool Fans Need to Stay Calm

It's been a tough few weeks of late, with Liverpool dropping points against Newcastle, Burnley, Spartak Moscow and Sevilla whilst also getting knocked out of the League Cup by Leicester. Some fans have even started to turn on the manager.

Yet the table does not …

Namely, the issue of finances and the sensible "restrictions" FSG pose on spending money; also, the issues that Klopp's tactical approach has had in overcoming the proverbial parked bus. This series is a look at what it takes to win a title so I will look at various options available …
An Imperfect Marriage Between The System & The Players At Liverpool FC

An Imperfect Marriage Between The System & The Players At Liverpool FC

Klopp’s Liverpool are currently experiencing a turbulent time in terms of results, and fans are understandably becoming frustrated with the same defensive issues reoccurring regularly to deny Liverpool deserved wins. However, even though these issues appear to occur so repetitively, it still seems difficult for many to pinpoint the precise problem and identify exactly who’s to blame in each situation, and this is largely due to the elaborate nature of the system that Klopp currently has in place. Liverpool currently …
