Observations as Liverpool Stutter Against The Baggies

Observations as Liverpool Stutter Against The Baggies

It all seemed to be going so well for Liverpool. A much-changed side spearheaded by Danny Ings took an early lead before a second-half strike from Mohamed Salah put the away side two goals to the good. Three points heading to Merseyside and plenty of rested legs ahead of far more important games. No-one, not even the most optimistic of West Brom fans would've predicted the last fifteen minutes of the game. From 2-0 down, the home side fought back …
Liverpool Player Ratings From Hawthorns Holiday

Liverpool Player Ratings From Hawthorns Holiday

Liverpool refused to get out of second gear as they shared the points with West Bromwich Albion on Saturday. With AS Roma and the Champions League firmly on their minds, the Reds threw away a two-goal lead to the pretty much-relegated side, but when there's little to play for and the referee is giving free-kicks against you when your player is punched, who's fussed? Hereeeeeee's your ratings. Nice to see you, Albie Loris Karius (6): Was quite meh on the …

James' Bond: The Importance of Being Milner

James' Bond: The Importance of Being Milner

It’s the 79th minute of the hectic league game between Liverpool and Manchester City. The Reds had fought City in the early exchanges before going a bit mad with second-half goals from ‘the trident’ of Mane, Salah and Firmino. They lead 4-1. On the Anfield touchline, Jurgen Klopp decides to swap Emre Can for former City player James Milner. No one argues at this. City are coming back into the game and seem annoyingly undeterred by the score-line. Furthermore, Liverpool …
Liverpool's Underappreciated Midfield

Liverpool's Underappreciated Midfield

The consensus of this Liverpool team seems to be that the three attackers are world class, our defence still needs some serious work (although the emergence of Robbo, the signing of VVD and the form of Karius are mitigating this) and our midfield is … alright. The subject of our midfield is an interesting one, mostly because of the common criticisms and worries about our players. The most consistent criticism of our midfield is that it lacks an explosive punch, …
James Milner - Half Man, Half Machine

James Milner - Half Man, Half Machine

It's April 5th, 2017. James Milner makes another start in the Liverpool lineup in his unfamiliar left-back role. Liverpool draw 2-2 at home to Bournemouth and everything was a bit flat. Prospects of Milner playing in central midfield in this Liverpool lineup are seemingly nothing but a pipe dream. Jump forward a little over a year and James Milner is captaining this Liverpool side in the quarter-finals of the Champions League in what, in my opinion, was a man of …
Dejan Lovren Silences Critics on Memorable Night in Manchester

Dejan Lovren Silences Critics on Memorable Night in Manchester

For someone who has worked his way to the top of his profession, Dejan Lovren doesn’t half receive endless abuse. He is an international footballer who plays for Liverpool, which in my eyes, makes you fairly decent at what you do for a living. I am fully aware that it's all relative, and that he should not be treated like a mere mortal who plays a bit of seven-a-side now and again, but the flack he receives is still ludicrously …

Player Ratings as the Reds ride into the Last Four of Champions League

ALLEZ ALLEZ ALLEZ, ALLEZ ALLEZ ALLEZZZZZZZ. I was on press duty for another site I write for (sinning) so this gives me a chance to express some joy I had to hold back sitting around a bunch of journalists and City fans. Not seen a replay of anything so if my Dejan Lovren praise is a bit ‘yer da’ and I’ve missed some blindingly obvious errors I apologise. Onto the last four we go... All hail King Trent! Loris Karius …

Observations as the Derby Ends in a Drab Stalemate

The Merseyside Derby ended in yet another dull stalemate as Liverpool and Everton played out a 0-0 draw. The result ensured that Liverpool stayed in the top 3 as they look forward to the second leg of the Champions League quarter-finals. The 'put-together' line up With one eye on the Champions League, and the mounting injury concerns meant that there was a real struggle putting together a cohesive lineup. The line up had the returning Clyne start for the first …
