How Alberto Moreno Could Help Break Buses

How Alberto Moreno Could Help Break Buses

It must be said, Liverpool have been on and off lately. That’s putting it rather mildly. To have such fantastic showings against Chelsea and Spurs, and then to produce…whatever THAT was against Wolverhampton and Hull; it’s indicative of a side with a fantastic plan A – one that gets the better of most teams who want the ball, but without a proper plan B. Of course; the idea that every football team necessarily needs a plan B when things aren’t …
What to do with Roberto Firmino if Liverpool sign a new striker

What to do with Roberto Firmino if Liverpool sign a new striker

There's been a lot of talk recently surrounding Roberto Firmino and whether the versatile Brazilian attacker is clinical enough in front of goal. There are arguments to be made from both sides of the fence. The truth is he can be hit-and-miss but fortunately for us we aren't overly reliant on him scoring every single game. He doesn't need to hit 30 goals. If he manages it then it's a bonus but the Liverpool system doesn't hinge on him going …
Liverpool's Formidable Front-Six Is Back In Business

Liverpool's Formidable Front-Six Is Back In Business

The way in which Sadio Mane tore Tottenham to shreds in that first-half at Anfield truly was a sight to behold. Liverpool’s returning hero was almost unplayable, scoring twice and coming very close to notching another couple before half-time. It was an individual performance that perfectly highlighted what the Reds have been missing in Mane’s absence, during the most horrendous January in recent memory. They didn’t look the same attacking force without his pace, movement, end product, and his mere …
Breaking down the Sum of Liverpool's Parts - Part 2

Breaking down the Sum of Liverpool's Parts - Part 2

Any back-line - let alone the back-five of Liverpool's - will face adversities in the form of the high initial press in trying to lay the foundation for attacks. Jürgen Klopp's system for Liverpool works in a multitude of ways in order to overcome these adversities as mentioned in Part 1 here, but nevertheless, football is still a team game. It goes without saying that the five players in the aforementioned positions - both centre-backs, the full-backs, as well as the …
How Gini Put on a Magic Show against Spurs

How Gini Put on a Magic Show against Spurs

"Yeah, but what does he actually do? We paid £25million for a quicker Joe Allen, didn't we? There's no output, he misses sitters and he's pretty safe on the ball." This was a perpetual argument/debate earlier on in the season when it became apparent that Gini Wijnaldum wasn't going to fulfill the expectations so many had of him made he made the trip South to join Liverpool from Newcastle United. Wijnaldum arrived at Anfield in the summer with it all to …
Liverpool's Win Against Spurs is a Gentle Reminder

Liverpool's Win Against Spurs is a Gentle Reminder

Liverpool's win against Spurs was Jurgen Klopp's men putting the league on notice. The Reds went into the evening kick-off on Saturday having not won a game since the turn of the year. Swansea City, Wolves, Plymouth and Southampton had all turned to Anfield, frustrated the hosts and walked away with something to show for it. Fortress Anfield was in ruins. Liverpool were a wounded animal and Spurs could have taken full advantage of it had they been smart. They …
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 …
Observations from Liverpool's win against Spurs

Observations from Liverpool's win against Spurs

So that's what it feels like. A win in the league. The first three points since New Year's Eve when Pep Guardiola's Manchester City got the full Jurgen Klopp treatment. Truth be told it's the first time we've looked like a Klopp side since the turn of the year. The performance against Spurs had everything we'd become accustomed to as Liverpool fans earlier on in the season; hunger, desire, passion, confidence and a bit of swagger thrown in for good …
Why Sturridge and the Liverpool System Clash

Why Sturridge and the Liverpool System Clash

The Daniel Sturridge "will he or won't he leave" saga is now more drawn out than the "will Ross and Rachel get it on" storyline. Just when it looks as though the tide has turned and the majority want him sold he scores a striker's goal which reminds everyone exactly what he can offer and exactly what Liverpool miss from time to time. It's a destructive relationship but I'm not quite sure whether player, manager and fans are ready to …
Liverpool v Tottenham Hotspur - Key Battles

Liverpool v Tottenham Hotspur - Key Battles

That dreaded 10-game spell is a thing of the past. Liverpool played a game every Tuesday or Wednesday in January and for the first time since mid-December, they have got a full week to prepare for Tottenham's visit to Anfield on Saturday. It was a week that Jurgen Klopp started with giving the players a two-day break before training began again, and it was a break that a lot of the players could have done with. Liverpool are now on …
