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. …
Elite Salah Can Become a Liverpool Icon

Elite Salah Can Become a Liverpool Icon

In amongst the carnage of the final minutes of Liverpool’s 2-2 draw with Spurs, Mo Salah scored a goal that had the potential to be one of the greatest Anfield moments of the last decade or so. The chaos, controversy and fume surrounding Kane’s two penalties and the disappointment of two points dropped cannot be allowed to take the shine off what was an absolutely extraordinary goal. Salah picks the ball up from a difficult angle, and appeals for handball, …
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 …

Liverpool v Manchester City Preview - Key Battles

After what seems like forever, Liverpool have had a whole week between two games, and the break couldn't have come at a better time than in the lead-up to a game against Manchester City, who have made a mockery of the Premier League this season.

Liverpool's Future Pinned To Twin Fullbacks

The Premier League’s top six clubs dream about having English talents good enough to bring all the way through from their academy systems and into the first team.  Liverpool are fortunate to have one of these rising stars in 19-year-old Trent Alexander-Arnold.  Blessed with speed, intelligence, a powerful shot and outstanding passing range, Alexander-Arnold is not only one of the jewels of the academy, he’s a local lad.

Two Years of Jurgen Klopp

Two Years of Jurgen Klopp

October 8th, 2015 was the day Jurgen Klopp stepped into his role as Liverpool F.C. manager.

Improving Liverpool FC - Clutch Players

Improving Liverpool FC - Clutch Players

What is the best way to improve Liverpool Football Club? Despite a positive start to the season, culminating in a 4-0 win over Arsenal, the Reds problems are more apparent than ever and after a dismal September, a straightforward victory seems nigh on impossible to accomplish. Some of Liverpool’s pervading issues are obvious: we need both competent centre-backs and a coherent defensive structure; we need to reorganise and solidify our midfield; we aren’t pressing very well; the squad isn’t deep …
Alberto Moreno: Will he be vindicated?

Alberto Moreno: Will he be vindicated?

Alberto Moreno’s endured a pretty gruelling time since becoming a Liverpool player in 2014. Arriving from Sevilla, the Spaniard joined as a very attack minded, promising left-back with pace to burn. His defensive abilities, however, have always come under scrutiny. Take a look back at the 2016 Europa League final against his former-club Sevilla for example, with the left-back’s error filled performance at the heart of Liverpool’s second-half capitulation. Caught out of position, Moreno left a gaping hole down the …
