How on earth did Liverpool draw with Everton?

How on earth did Liverpool draw with Everton?

40 goals in the previous 11 games for Klopp's Liverpool and 18 years since Everton last won at Anfield: as the game entered the 75th minute, it appeared that wait would have to go on, until the FA Cup 3rd round fixture at least, as Liverpool were absolutely cruising. The reflected such a reading of the game too: 79.4pc possession, 964 touches (to Everton's 384), 23 shots to 3, 88pc pass accuracy to Everton's 50pc, and 644 complete passes, to Everton's …
Liverpool FC and The Dreaded U-Shape

Liverpool FC and The Dreaded U-Shape

Liverpool's last two matches have both ended with impressive score-lines, with six goals and none conceded. However, despite the two 3-0 wins, both of Liverpool's performances have been somewhat flat and lacklustre. The opponents in these past two matches both opted to employ low defensive blocks with no real intention to play or score a goal, so Liverpool had the relatively simple task of having 90 minutes to basically break those teams down. However, although that may appear simple, and …
Klopp Playing The Long Game With Rival Managers

Klopp Playing The Long Game With Rival Managers

Jurgen Klopp isn’t as universally fashionable as he was when he became Liverpool manager back in October 2015 - I think we can all agree on that. When Klopp arrived on our shores he was treated like a God by Reds supporters - something we love to do with our managers - and his appointment was widely seen as one of the most significant in the club’s great history. We all believed he was the man to take Liverpool back …
Mourinho's Double-Decker Denies the Reds - Liverpool 0 - 0 Manchester United

Mourinho's Double-Decker Denies the Reds - Liverpool 0 - 0 Manchester United

The Details Date: 14/10/2017 Venue: Anfield, Liverpool Background This game, eh? This bloody game. Especially when it's the early kick-off on a Saturday, this bloody game. The remaining happiness levels of our weekend largely depended on the following ninety minutes of football. You could argue it shouldn't, but it does. United arrive at Anfield seven points ahead of Liverpool and second in the league, just trailing City on goal difference. Liverpool have been off the boil, somewhat, since Arsenal were …
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 …
Ruthlessness Key As Liverpool Face Arch-Rivals

Ruthlessness Key As Liverpool Face Arch-Rivals

Whisper it quietly, but Liverpool have actually played very well in general so far this season, regardless of the current narrative surrounding the Reds. Too many people judge a team’s success and form solely on results, but that can cloud the wider picture. If you actually scan through Liverpool’s 12 matches in 2017/18 to date, there aren’t many when you can accuse them of under-performing. Watford was a limp display back in August, as was their last outing at Newcastle, …
Liverpool v Manchester United Preview - Key Battles

Liverpool v Manchester United Preview - Key Battles

The international break is over, and Liverpool have bad form and the loss of Sadio Mane to overcome. Just another international break that has brought strife to the Reds, then. And if that wasn't enough, the Reds welcome a red-hot Manchester United to Anfield on Saturday, as Jurgen Klopp finally looks to find a formula that could break a wretched run of results in September. United have won all of their games this season, bar one, a 2-2 draw against …

THE DETAILS Venue – Anfield, Liverpool Referee – Martin Atkinson Date & Time – Saturday, October 14th 2017 @ 12:30 BST FORM To put it simply, Man United are red hot. Liverpool aren't.

Liverpool have had only one win since beating Arsenal 4-0 before the last international break. The reversal of fortunes that the previous international fortnight …
Beating United Is Everything For A Southern Liverpool Fan

Beating United Is Everything For A Southern Liverpool Fan

I’ll warn you, this is a bit of a sob story and I am absolutely looking for sympathy. As a “southern softie”, what more do you expect? When it comes to being a Liverpool supporter from the south of England, I can assure you that the hour or so after losing to Man United is one of the most hideous as a Red. I’m sure it’s pretty grim for you too, wherever you are in the world, but I’m feeling …
Liverpool FC's Bore Draws Or Are They Good, Solid Draws?

Liverpool FC's Bore Draws Or Are They Good, Solid Draws?

This may be deemed a controversial comment. This may be considered the ramblings of a dim-witted man. You may disagree with the following statement wholeheartedly. Yet it’s been weighing down on my chest for a week or two now. So here goes. Is there such a thing as a good draw? Now that I’ve got your attention I would like to express how, no matter what the circumstance, I want Liverpool to win, against every opposition at any given time. …
