Immense Salah-Firmino Partnership Continues To Grow At Liverpool

Immense Salah-Firmino Partnership Continues To Grow At Liverpool

Great Liverpool attacking pairings throughout history roll off the tongue. Ian St John and Roger Hunt excelled in the 1960s, John Toshack and Kevin Keegan were the archetypal ‘Little N Large’ combo the following decade and Kenny Dalglish and Ian Rush were perhaps the Reds’ greatest duo-in-tandem. Jumping into the Premier League era, Robbie Fowler and Stan Collymore wreaked havoc for a short time, before Steven Gerrard and Fernando Torres came so close to inspiring Liverpool to glory in 2008/09. …
Klopp's Gamble and Liverpool's Creativity

Klopp's Gamble and Liverpool's Creativity

It has been over a month since a certain Brazilian left for Barcelona. A month of ups and downs, as it more often than not is for Liverpool supporters. From managing to snap Manchester City's win streak to losing to Swansea and another early exit in the FA Cup, to snatching a draw from the jaws of victory last week (still salty about that one), to our first 2-0 win in a year. At the end of the day, we …
Jürgen Klopp Faces His Biggest Challenge As Liverpool Boss

Jürgen Klopp Faces His Biggest Challenge As Liverpool Boss

Jürgen Klopp has earned our trust, having transformed this side from its underperforming state at the end of Rodgers’ reign, but fans have every right to question his attitude over the January window, with the club’s old guard suffering two more casualties. Joining Liverpool in January 2013, Sturridge and Coutinho both departed the club having contributed a combined 117 goals in 334 appearances. Delivering moments of true magic, the duo became known for their exceptional, almost telepathic relationship at the …
Roberto Firmino’s Goals Are Making Him The Complete Liverpool Striker

Roberto Firmino’s Goals Are Making Him The Complete Liverpool Striker

Roberto Firmino is an unbelievable footballer. The Brazilian is one of the most intelligent players to have represented Liverpool in years, possessing a footballing brain many can only dream of. His thought process is always a split-second quicker than most of the mere mortals around him. He sees passes before they can be made, finds pockets of space before defenders have had time to notice and presses as effectively as any frontman in Europe. It wasn’t a lightning-fast start at …
Sadio Mane’s Struggles Continue At Liverpool

Sadio Mane’s Struggles Continue At Liverpool

This time last year, Sadio Mane looked a potentially better signing for Barcelona than Philippe Coutinho. That’s how good he was. The Senegalese’s departure for the Africa Cup of Nations in January was a fatal blow to Liverpool’s season, and their title bid fizzled out completely without their destroyer-in-chief around. Come the end of the campaign, Mane had deservedly scooped Liverpool’s Player of the Year award, following a wonderful start to his time at Anfield. The 25-year-old started 2017/18 in …
Philippe Coutinho: Good Riddance

Philippe Coutinho: Good Riddance

The 4-3 victory over Manchester City provided the Liverpool fanbase with a great deal of relief following the departure of Philippe Coutinho for £142 million only a few days prior. And to me, that was the end of the matter. Cheers for those stunning goals, it was a delight seeing a young Brazilian talent, once written off, develop into something special. But another transfer story in recent days - that of Alexis Sanchez, from Arsenal to Manchester United - was …
Will a new look front three get the opportunity to fire Liverpool to FA Cup glory?

Will a new look front three get the opportunity to fire Liverpool to FA Cup glory?

The loss of Philippe Coutinho to this Liverpool side was always going to be big, however, with the FA cup returning this weekend will the biggest impact of his loss be on the team we see challenge for the cup? As well as being a world-class player, Phil's greatest attributes was his ability to play in several positions in this Liverpool side allowing Klopp to rotate to great effect. But with Coutinho gone Klopp's options possess neither the quality or …
Roberto Firmino: Underrated Brazilian The Heartbeat Of Klopp’s System

Roberto Firmino: Underrated Brazilian The Heartbeat Of Klopp’s System

Philippe Coutinho was probably regarded as the most talented of the ‘Fab Four’ prior to his departure, with Sadio Mane the speedster of the pack and Mo Salah the marksman who’s hit the ground running to provide a new lease of life to Klopp’s attacking force. Yet, there can be no argument that Roberto Firmino is Liverpool’s most important man. Sunday’s 4-3 thriller against Manchester City was a testament to that, with the Brazilian’s goal eerily similar to Robbie Fowler’s …
Why Liverpool don't need to replace Phil Coutinho... Yet

Why Liverpool don't need to replace Phil Coutinho... Yet

Sunday morning, a few hours before Liverpool kicked off against Manchester City, I was just about done. It hadn’t been the best day for Liverpool up until that point, as the toxic fever pitch and maelstrom of Liverpool fans’ complaints about everything from Jon Flanagan’s guilty plea right the way through to Liverpool deciding £90m was too much to bid for Thomas Lemar reached a crescendo. And I’d had enough. I didn’t want to see one more stupid, angry tweet …
Reborn Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain Continues To Excel

Reborn Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain Continues To Excel

If ever a day summed up why Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain's decision to trade Arsenal for Liverpool last August was an inspired one, it was Sunday. As the 24-year-old was sat preparing for the Reds’ eagerly-anticipated clash with Man City, his former club were blowing a lead and suffering defeat at Bournemouth, languishing in sixth-place in the Premier League in the process. In a parallel universe, Oxlade-Chamberlain could easily have been lining up at Dean Court in a horribly average Arsenal team …
