Strange (Mersey) Sides - Liverpool 1 Everton 1

Strange (Mersey) Sides - Liverpool 1 Everton 1

I would have been a bit disappointed at 1-0, to be honest. That sounds mealy-mouthed, doesn’t it? Being all sniffy at a one goal win against the other lot from across the park, but such was the paucity of Everton’s defence and attack (including the slowest forward line in their history) that I wanted at least four by half time. They were begging to be put away, absolutely begging. Add a snowy Merseyside and Big Sam ™ with his aerial …
Observations as Liverpool are Left Sick from Toffee

Observations as Liverpool are Left Sick from Toffee

For 70 minutes, it was a Christmas party. The snow fell, the scoreboard looked pretty and the Kop sang a merry tune. Liverpool players, picked in order to combat the sub-zero conditions, were far superior to those they came up against. They were quicker than the Blues, stronger than the Blues, better technically than the Blues and ahead of the Blues, for the most. But it wasn't enough. A ball up the pitch, some contact and a penalty. 1-1, knocking …
The Magnificent Seven: How Liverpool Trounced Spartak

The Magnificent Seven: How Liverpool Trounced Spartak

Since September, in our match analyses, we've concluded more often than not that Liverpool's performances have warranted better scorelines, that the underlying performances have actually been rather good, even despite the growing discontent with Jürgen Klopp's side through October as the team struggled, with a particular low-point against Spurs, and even into November as Liverpool conceded late on to Chelsea, familiar angry voices, from last season's winter rut reemerged. After 32 goals in 9 games, I have one question for …

Observations as Liverpool spark out Spartak

Observations as Liverpool spark out Spartak

Absolutely joyful football from Jurgen's last 16 Reds as Liverpool bounce into the knockout stages of the Champions League, top of the group and on top of the world after another devastating win. 17 goals in 7 days. Mustard. From Coutinho's slick penalty early on to Mo Salah capping his night off with a goal, it was a perfect night that Klopp will have gone to bed dreaming of on Tuesday. On Wednesday night, will a Champions League trophy be …
Liverpool 7 - 0 Spartak Moscow: Iron Curtain torn apart by Reds onslaught

Liverpool 7 - 0 Spartak Moscow: Iron Curtain torn apart by Reds onslaught

The Details Date: 6/12/17 Venue: Anfield, Liverpool Background The stage was set at Anfield. The knockout stages of the Champions League awaited the victors. A win for Liverpool would also guarantee top spot in the group. Draw, and the Reds would probably slip into second place as Sevilla were widely expected to defeat Maribor in their final game, also tonight. Spartak had to win to progress. Klopp again rotated his starting eleven with five changes from the team that took the pitch at …

Player Ratings as Liverpool Advance to Knockout Stages in Style

Loris Karius - 6 Didn't have all that much to do due to the brilliance of Liverpool's front four. However, there was one shaky moment in the first-half for the German goalkeeper who rushed off his line to close down a promising Spartak attack - a rather reckless decision albeit one that resulted in a free-kick due to an offside call. Alberto Moreno - 7 Wasn't particularly troubled down the left-hand side by the Spartak attack as he continued to …
Oxlade Chamberlain: Shrugging off irrational criticism to prove his worth to Liverpool

Oxlade Chamberlain: Shrugging off irrational criticism to prove his worth to Liverpool

Football fans as a whole love to criticise players right from the get-go, as was the case when Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain joined Liverpool in the summer. Moving from Arsenal for a reported fee of £35million, he was labelled a flop after failing to catch the eye after coming on as a sub. Question marks were raised about the club’s investment in the Englishman given his eye-opening injury record and severe lack of contributions in the final third. Said question marks were …
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, …
