Tasty Tenerife Tales

We had all hoped, friends, that the dark days were behind us, at least until the increasingly inevitable zombie apocalypse strikes our beleaguered spinning sphere. Alas, it would appear that troubled times have visited us again on Planet Liverpool. Three years after parting company with the beloved but problematic flesh nibbler that was Luis Suárez, it emerges that the chilling spectre of cannibalism may be looming once more, this time in the overtly affable form of another smiling mentalist - …
Matip, Wijnaldum & Mane Proving Klopp Should Be Trusted This Summer

Matip, Wijnaldum & Mane Proving Klopp Should Be Trusted This Summer

Many past Liverpool managers have experienced utterly disastrous summer transfer windows. Gerard Houllier, Rafa Benitez and Brendan Rodgers all spectacularly failed to build on near title-winning seasons in 2001/02, 2008/09 and 2013/14, respectively, with dross such as El Hadji Diouf, Salif Diao, Philipp Degen and Alberto Aquilani bought in. Even Kenny Dalglish, for all his understandable God-like status at Anfield, decided to sign Jose Enrique, Charlie Adam and Andy Carroll. When the end of Jurgen Klopp’s first season as Liverpool …
Liverpool's Champions League Fate Is In Their Own Hands

Liverpool's Champions League Fate Is In Their Own Hands

Liverpool continued their unbeaten record against the top six sides on Sunday in a thrilling and frantic 1-1 draw with Manchester City at the Etihad. James Milner opened the scoring from the spot to give the perfect response to the surprisingly hostile reception he received at his former club, before Sergio Aguero equalised from a low cross into the box by Kevin de Bruyne. The Reds had a golden chance to take all the spoils when Roberto Firmino squared for …
Does Coutinho Belong in the Midfield?

Does Coutinho Belong in the Midfield?

Since the turn of the New Year, Liverpool’s form has dipped – there can be no doubting that. Teams seemed to have picked up on Jürgen Klopp’s kryptonite: a low block, without any ambition to attack, frustrating and uncompromising in defensive stature. Palace, Hull, Swansea, Leicester; the reminders don’t need to be stated. What does, is the alarming form of the golden (adopted) son of the Red half of Merseyside; one who embodies the closest thing to a “superstar” that …
Mané Happy Returns - Sadio Finally Playing For Klopp

Mané Happy Returns - Sadio Finally Playing For Klopp

Did you know that Phil Coutinho has a new tattoo of Mickey Mouse on his abs? Or were you aware that Le Bron James, nominal celebrity Red, is very disgruntled at going bald and has almost EIGHT times my country's population following him on Twitter? How about the fact that Ben Woodburn has been called up to the Wales senior squad at 17 years of age?  Maybe you've seen, amidst the talk of a celebratory crest to mark the club's 125th birthday, …
Rating Liverpool Players' Consistency in 2016-17 - PART TWO

Rating Liverpool Players' Consistency in 2016-17 - PART TWO

There has been plenty of talk of Liverpool's inconsistencies throughout the 2016-17 campaign. After a hugely impressive start to the season, it's been another disappointing year and what had the potential to be a successful campaign, has turned into an unpredictable final few months. Liverpool have the best success record against teams in the top six and they picked up a number of commanding victories against their rivals at the beginning of the season. Wins against Arsenal and Everton on …
Is Magnificent Mane One Of Liverpool’s Signings Of The Decade?

Is Magnificent Mane One Of Liverpool’s Signings Of The Decade?

With many great Liverpool players, there are often moments that come along that make you realise how special they are. With Steven Gerrard, it was his thunderbolt against Man United at Anfield. For Luis Suarez, it was his incredible assist for Dirk Kurt against the same team. Fernando Torres’ ruthless finish against Chelsea on his home debut made us realise the Reds had a world-class striker in their ranks. You no doubt have other examples that instantly pop into your …

Philippe Coutinho: A Phenomenal Talent Squandered on the Wing

Philippe Coutinho has risen to the potential and exceeded the expectations fans had of him since joining Liverpool FC. After signing from Inter Milan in 2013, the little Brazilian has proven to be worth much more than the 8.5 million pounds paid for him. He has been Liverpool’s Player of the Year the last two years in a row and has won the Samba Gold Award as Europe’s best Brazilian player overcoming the likes of Neymar, Douglas Costa and fellow …

Emre Can shows he still has something to offer the Liverpool midfield

Liverpool's win over Arsenal on Saturday was filled with a lot of standout performances and memorable moments. Sadio Mane was rightly lauded for yet another goal, Roberto Firmino looked back to his best and Adam Lallana was praised for the fact he was practically everywhere throughout the match. Reds boss Jurgen Klopp even reserved special praise for the latter in his post match interview.
“When we are compact, it is really nice to have Adam because he jumps out of compact …
