Alexander-Arnold Looking Very Much At Home

Alexander-Arnold Looking Very Much At Home

James Baldwin once wrote that "perhaps home is not a place but an irrevocable condition." People, by nature, attach a massive significance to the concept of where we belong. We struggle all our lives with trying to reconcile the spectrum of emotions that our native place can evoke in us. Indifference, hatred, fierce pride - we feel them all if we live long enough. If you're a foreign fan of Liverpool FC, you'll have encountered both the warmth of the …
Spurs-Slaying Reds Are On The Road To Recovery

Spurs-Slaying Reds Are On The Road To Recovery

Up until Saturday, 2017 had been awful as a Liverpool supporter. Our pre-Christmas spring in the step was long gone, everything felt like a chore, and like Popeye without his spinach, you were left desperately hoping the Reds would give us a much-needed adrenalin shot. Why did we ever doubt them, though? There has been so much negativity surrounding the club this year , some of it warranted and some of it embarrassingly hyperbolic, but Saturday's fantastic 2-0 win over …
Can Clyne And The Reds Get Back On Track?

Can Clyne And The Reds Get Back On Track?

If you've ever struggled to break a pattern of behaviour, then you'll know how difficult the psychological aspect of that battle is. There's a whole pageant that seems to play out around the drawing of lines in the sand. Just one more chocolate bar and THEN the salad diet will commence, just a final bottle of beer and THEN productive sobriety will follow, just one more tweet and THEN some interaction with actual humans in the room. Of course, the …
Defensive Deja Vu for Liverpool

Defensive Deja Vu for Liverpool

Defeat to Hull City meant Liverpool's disastrous start to 2017 continued. Jurgen Klopp's men have won just one of their 10 matches since the turn of the year and this run has seen relegation battlers Hull and Swansea pick up maximum points against them as well as having their FA Cup run brought to a premature end at the hands of Wolves, at Anfield. Fingers are being pointed and scapegoats are being identified. Emre Can isn't good enough to start. Dejan …
Will Coutinho And Liverpool Bounce Back?

Will Coutinho And Liverpool Bounce Back?

For some reason, most of Latest News' downtime of late has been spent immersed in dystopian fiction. Not the frothy likes of The Hunger Games, mind you. No, the precious spare moments that come our way have been spent listening to well-spoken gents narrating George Orwell's 1984 and Aldous Huxley's Brave New World. Given the state of the world at present, this choice of reading matter seems deliberately grim but sometimes, when times are tough, you just have to double-down and …

Henderson: Clyne Leads By Example

Henderson: Clyne Leads By Example

If you're reading this then you've gotten past the irritation with the immediate past long enough to contemplate the future, and for that, I thank you. The life of the daily columnist is a lonely one and the comfort of your virtual presence warms the cold dying heart of Latest News just enough to brave the internet awfulness and trawl around for stories to tickle your fancy. In the process of doing just that, your scribbler had the misfortune of straying …
Clyne & Henderson In, Matip Out

Clyne & Henderson In, Matip Out

Hello, good evening and welcome to a brief and final Latest News, of the week, where absolutely nothing is wrong. What could be wrong? That television? It was always broken, what of it? Yes, that computer monitor too. The radio too, yeah. What are you implying? Everything's fine. WE SAID IT'S FINE. Football is supposed to be the hot refreshing shower that we take after the increasingly batshit events of the world have sullied us daily. However, on a day when …
Klopp: We Were Better

Klopp: We Were Better

"We were the better side, played better football, had a better plan." Jürgen Klopp "We stopped them playing but they also did very well from the defensive point of view." Jose Mourinho
Everybody loves a good story, especially here at Latest News. The creation of narrative is as old as we are as a species. The past, after all, is just a story that we tell ourselves, so the same thing should work for the future, right? Well, not really. …
Is it time to see Sturridge and Origi up front together?

Is it time to see Sturridge and Origi up front together?

Divock Origi and Daniel Sturridge have both proven to be huge assets for Liverpool but they rarely play alongside each other because Jurgen Klopp prefers to play with a lone centre-forward. The striker is supported by two forwards as part of an attacking three and their role changes due to the dynamism required. The player in the middle must be willing to rotate and move around among the front three to create space for the creative attacking players to move …
