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 …
Second Coming For Dejan?

Second Coming For Dejan?

Van Dijk’s record-breaking transfer to Liverpool last month was expected to bring some stability to an all-too unreliable defence, providing the perfect partner for Joel Matip in a towering defensive duo. Yet, things haven’t quite panned out that way, with high-profile mistakes costing Klopp a chance to gain some silverware this season via the FA Cup, proving that while the Dutchman’s arrival monumentally improves this side, one man can’t solve everything. Matip was previously regarded as the club’s best centre-back, …

Dejan Lovren Epitomises Jurgen Klopp’s Frustrating Liverpool

Dejan Lovren Epitomises Jurgen Klopp’s Frustrating Liverpool

Amid all the controversy surrounding Liverpool’s 2-2 draw with Tottenham, one man who has escaped a chunk of criticism is Dejan Lovren. The centre-back’s horrendous miskick led to Harry Kane winning Spurs’ first penalty of the afternoon - the kind of mistake you expect to see on bobbly Sunday league pitches across the country. Granted, Kane missed the spot-kick so it didn’t prove to be a key moment in the game, but it was yet another incident that summed up …
Moss Dross - Liverpool 2 Spurs 2

Moss Dross - Liverpool 2 Spurs 2

It was the strangest game I’ve seen at Anfield in years. I left the ground utterly unable to form a coherent feeling about what I’d just witnessed and if you can manage to tear down any innate tribalism from your system and are still ravaged by several conflicting emotions, you know you’ve been to an odd match. Let’s go through those thoughts. Firstly, Tottenham did not deserve to lose that game. Oh, it would have been glorious to walk away …
Liverpool 2-2 Spurs: A Tactical Breakdown

Liverpool 2-2 Spurs: A Tactical Breakdown

It was a thrilling game, in which the points were shared, but one in which the away side will be by far the happier of the two sides. Liverpool dominated the entirety of the first-half, scoring early, cutting through Spurs with ease and squandering glorious chance after chance. Liverpool's gameplan, to press aggressively and surrender the ball was good, and with Spurs using a 4-2-3-1, it became perfect. The spaces were there for Liverpool to exploit, and on a number of …
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, …
Roberto Firmino Needs To Produce More

Roberto Firmino Needs To Produce More

“Firmino is one of the most underrated players in the Premier League – he’s highly rated by Klopp but outside Liverpool he’s not mentioned when talked about top strikers.”
The above quote was from Jamie Carragher during the Monday Night Football programme on Sky Sports on 15th January. It is certainly a sentiment that I agree with. Among neutral fans and the mainstream media, Firmino isn’t talked about in the same way as the likes of Harry Kane, Sergio …
It's the Hope That Kills You

It's the Hope That Kills You

It’s the hope that kills you... a famous saying that can be attributed to almost any situation in life. Some important, some less so but it seems to perfectly sum up the current situation at Liverpool F.C. To be blunt and please excuse the language but ... WHAT THE F**K are we doing? Where is this club going? What are our aims and ambitions? What’s the plan? Who are the players that are going to make us achieve these ambitions? …
