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 …
EFL Cup Semi-Final Preview: Reds Look to Bounce Back

EFL Cup Semi-Final Preview: Reds Look to Bounce Back

It has not been the best start to 2017 for Jurgen Klopp's Liverpool. In the 2 games that the Reds have played, they have had two draws. The first one - a 2-2 stalemate at Sunderland - might be excusable, given that it kicked off less than 48 hours after a taxing game against Manchester City. But Sunday's goalless draw in the FA Cup against Plymouth Argyle is inexcusable. Even with the much-changed team, Liverpool should be beating Plymouth. So, …
Liverpool's Team of 2016

Liverpool's Team of 2016

It's cliche I know but a year in football is a long time. If you compared December 2015 and December 2016 they're almost unrecognisable. After the Boxing Day fixtures in 2015 Liverpool were in 8th position with 27 points and a -1 goal difference. Watford and Crystal Palace where both ahead of the Reds and Everton were just a single point behind. Going into the game against Stoke City on the 27th December Liverpool are 2nd in the league with 37 …
Daniel Sturridge A Crucial Figure Between Now & May

Daniel Sturridge A Crucial Figure Between Now & May

Without Daniel Sturridge, Liverpool would not have beaten Everton at Goodison Park. It really is as simple as that. The 27-year-old was introduced late in the day at the home of the Reds’ local rivals, and every time he got the ball, it felt as though something may happen. He looked bright and unpredictable, and you sensed that he was the last person Everton’s defenders wanted to see enter the fray, with legs and minds tiring. It was Sturridge’s run …
Nathaniel Clyne, Upgrades and Evolving

Nathaniel Clyne, Upgrades and Evolving

How good is it being a Liverpool fan right now? Klopp's men sit second in the league after the dramatic late win in the derby. We're the top scorers in the Premier League with 41 goals but what's even more impressive is how we have continued to impress despite some noticeable absentees. Daniel Sturridge, Joel Matip, Emre Can and Philippe Coutinho have all missed matches and while performances may have dropped off a little, we're still picking up points.  As cliche as …
Nathaniel Clyne: Do Liverpool Need More From The Reds’ Mr Consistent?

Nathaniel Clyne: Do Liverpool Need More From The Reds’ Mr Consistent?

Make no bones about it, Nathaniel Clyne has been one of Liverpool’s best signings of this decade. He may even be one of their best since the turn of the century, when you weigh up how hit-and-miss the Reds have been in the transfer market. Clyne has been hugely dependable ever since joining from Southampton for £12.5million in 2014, never looking daunted by the pressure of representing such a huge club, and slotting into the defence seamlessly. The fact that …
Liverpool fan reaction versus player reaction

Liverpool fan reaction versus player reaction

Whilst I understand fans being upset at the nature of Liverpool's capitulation to Bournemouth last weekend (trust me, I was pissed off too), I feel the level of fume by some was somewhat disproportionate. Some people were losing their minds. Yes, it was bad, hence my use of the word capitulation and yes, fans have every right to be upset by the defeat and the nature of it. My issue is how carried away some people got and how quickly …
