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 …
Serial Captain & Audi Cup Runner Up: What is a Jordan Henderson?

Serial Captain & Audi Cup Runner Up: What is a Jordan Henderson?

Jordan Henderson. League Cup Winner 2012, Europa League Runner Up 2016, Audi Cup Runner Up 2017 & Serial Young Player of the Year Award Winner. His honours list reads like a small pack of Revels. Yet somewhat amazingly, despite continuing to divide opinion and never really cementing his position as a winner, Henderson is a man who continues to defy critics and has somehow managed to work himself into the role of Captain for both club and country. For Liverpool, …
September Slump: What Next For Jurgen?

September Slump: What Next For Jurgen?

In the aftermath of Liverpool's shocking 2-0 exit from the Carabao Cup at the hands of Leicester, Jurgen Klopp admitted he was sick of the goals Liverpool were conceding. In September alone, Liverpool have conceded 10 goals in a span of 4 matches.  Fans and pundits have criticised Jurgen for not strengthening his defence over the summer and a lack of plan B when van Dijk wasn't available. Jurgen responded by saying he had looked at alternatives over a million …
The Difficulties in Being Gerrard's Successor

The Difficulties in Being Gerrard's Successor

It hasn't been the greatest two weeks in the history of the club to say the least, no wins in four and an early exit in the Carabao Cup has fans clamouring to find reasons for our run of poor form. The defence has taken the brunt of it, individual and tactical mistakes leading to 10 goals conceded in 4 games and fingers being pointed to individual players as each game goes by; Lovren at Sevilla, Klavan at Burnley and …
Liverpool 2-2 Sevilla: A Tactical Breakdown

Liverpool 2-2 Sevilla: A Tactical Breakdown

A promising, but so too a very much frustrating match, Liverpool's long-awaited return to the Champions League group stage was disappointing, as from doing the hard work - having to come from a goal down - to then dominating the game, the team once again threw away what should have been three points, instead taking just the one. Between Firmino's equaliser and the end of the first-half, Liverpool were imperious, tearing through Sevilla with some phenomenal attacking play, involving defenders, midfielders …
Man City 5-0 Liverpool: A Tactical Breakdown

Man City 5-0 Liverpool: A Tactical Breakdown

A brutal decimation unbefitting of a club like Liverpool, but one handed out nonetheless. I usually enjoy reviewing the game and scrutinising key points within it, but this was anything but enjoyable. In fact, only on my second and third viewing did I fully comprehend what a truly abysmal performance it was. For this analysis, I'm going to take a slightly different approach: rather than solely looking at the goals, and how they progressed, we'll be discussing Liverpool's shape and …
Liverpool's Can Plan

Liverpool's Can Plan

With attention turning back towards the pitch and Liverpool’s nine game unbeaten run going into the match against Manchester City there was a perceptible lack of negativity in the LFC universe this week … Like clockwork, the media and social-media panic mongers filled that void with Emre Can’s contract status. The Reds’ midfield strongman is surprisingly still on his original £55K per week deal which expires at the end of the 2017/18 season. Rival clubs would be able to sign …
Liverpool and the Lack of Fight

Liverpool and the Lack of Fight

There are two ways to handle a defeat. One is to shrug the shoulders, assess the next few games and get on with things. After all, we play again soon and you’re going to lose from time to time. The other is to be so angry that it takes hours for the mind to calm down and you find yourself airing expletives for no reason to silent rooms. ‘Never write when angry,’ a mate once told me. Sorry. As usual …
A Guide to Jurgen Klopp's Midfield Set Up

A Guide to Jurgen Klopp's Midfield Set Up

Thanks to the internet, football fans from all over the world are able to voice their opinions on any, and every, topic relevant to their chosen football club. The growth of social media sites, in particular, provides all fans with voices which, although generally considered a positive, can lead to debacles such as the tracking of those planes and cars shuttling potential transfer targets. Overall, however, the input fans now enjoy as a result of the evolution of social media …
