Signs of progress for Liverpool following the Wembley debacle

Signs of progress for Liverpool following the Wembley debacle

After the horrible result against Spurs scrutiny has been on Jurgen Klopp to see if he could get a response from his players. 3 games later, with 10 goals scored and 1 conceded, it is fair to say that Klopp has the ability to get a reaction from his players in times of adversity. There is no better example of this than in his final season at Dortmund. The German overcame a shocking start to finish the campaign with some …
Liverpool fans still divided over Mignolet

Liverpool fans still divided over Mignolet

In the future when discussions are held concerning Liverpool's greatest-ever goalkeepers, names such as Ray Clemence, Bruce Grobbelaar and Pepe Reina will no doubt figure, but the name of Simon Mignolet is much less likely to. In every Liverpool roundup Mignolet's form is continually under constant scrutiny. There were signs last season that four years on from his move from Sunderland, Mignolet was finally showing signs of becoming one of the best goalkeepers in the Premier League. However, the 2017-18 …

Liverpool's Transfer Committees, Sporting Directors and the need to Step Up

Since FSG have come into the club, transfers have been a mixed bag. There have been some resounding successes in the likes of Sturridge, Coutinho, Mane and Salah. There have also been some real flops like Lovren, Lambert, Balotelli and others. Michael Edwards has had to play a big role in all of this. Edwards arrived as Head of Performance and Analysis and, more recently, worked with Brendan Rodgers as part of the now infamous Transfer Committee. This was one …

West Ham 1 - 4 Liverpool: Reds run riot at London Stadium, again

The Details Date: 4/11/2017 Venue: London Stadium Background Liverpool visited West Ham for the first time since their convincing 4-0 victory at London Stadium back in May. Klopp's Reds have been trying to kickstart their season again after a dismal run of results in September.

Sadio Mané also returned to the starting eleven, ahead of schedule after his recent injury. West Ham …
West Ham 1-4 Liverpool - Player Ratings as the Hammers are crushed

West Ham 1-4 Liverpool - Player Ratings as the Hammers are crushed

Well in, Reds. After a couple of routine 3-0's, a fairly hair-raising 4-1 got the heart rates back up whilst still providing a healthy kick to the goal difference. It looked bad, then it looked oh so good. It looked bad again for exactly 57 seconds, and it was more than good by the end. Roll on some dropped points on Sunday! Here are the ratings. Defence Simon Mignolet - 5: Why the *bleep* doesn't he come and get the …

Liverpool 3 Huddersfield 0 - Player Ratings

Liverpool 3 Huddersfield 0 - Player Ratings

Liverpool got back to winning ways on Saturday afternoon, responding well after a dismal first-forty five threatened to increase fan frustration. The Reds went into the game with a lot of pressure having delivered such a poor performance against Spurs last week and it seemed all too familiar a story when their lack of impetus enabled Huddersfield to defend comfortably for the first period. However, some stern words from Jurgen Klopp at half-time saw the game spark into life with …
