Roberto Firmino: The Most Underrated Player In The Premier League?

Roberto Firmino: The Most Underrated Player In The Premier League?

Liverpool have played home to some illustrious talents over the years: Ian Rush, Kenny Dalglish, Robbie Fowler, Steven Gerrard and Luis Suarez are names that roll straight off the tongue while other far more under-appreciated stars lie in wait. Dirk Kuyt was very much of that ilk. Far from the most technically gifted player at the club, the Dutchman was always up for the big occasion, scoring the winning penalty in the Champions League semi-final against Chelsea back in 2007 …
Liverpool Battle History Against the Baggies

Liverpool Battle History Against the Baggies

Liverpool head out to face bottom dweller who has recently changed managers. Liverpool head home having improbably dropped points and all positive vibes go out the window. Surely we’re now performing so well that this type of almost predictable disappointment is no longer possible. West Brom has rescued 4 points from their last two matches, and for all of that hard work against Swansea and Manchester United, they still sit effectively 3 wins from safety with four to play. Swansea …

James' Bond: The Importance of Being Milner

James' Bond: The Importance of Being Milner

It’s the 79th minute of the hectic league game between Liverpool and Manchester City. The Reds had fought City in the early exchanges before going a bit mad with second-half goals from ‘the trident’ of Mane, Salah and Firmino. They lead 4-1. On the Anfield touchline, Jurgen Klopp decides to swap Emre Can for former City player James Milner. No one argues at this. City are coming back into the game and seem annoyingly undeterred by the score-line. Furthermore, Liverpool …
The Klopp Revolution

The Klopp Revolution

The year is 2016, the date April 14th. Liverpool welcomed hordes of Dortmund fans as they flooded the city. The Germans had finally landed on English soil. It is the second leg of the Europa League Quarter-final, with Liverpool managing the all-important away goal in a 1-1 draw at the Westfalenstadion the week previous. The fans greeted the team bus with vigour and joy not seen since the 13/14 season when the league seemed within our grasp. The Liverpool fans …
Could Gini Wijnaldum be Liverpool's Future Number Six?

Could Gini Wijnaldum be Liverpool's Future Number Six?

Setting the tempo, demanding the ball and creating passing lanes - that's not Gini Wijnaldum is it? When Jordan Henderson picked up a yellow card for tripping up Raheem Sterling in the second-half of the first leg of the Champions League quarter-final at Anfield, ruling himself out of the second leg because of suspension, Liverpool fans quickly turned to social media to express their concerns. With Emre Can definitely out of the second leg because of a niggling back injury, serious …
Liverpool's Underappreciated Midfield

Liverpool's Underappreciated Midfield

The consensus of this Liverpool team seems to be that the three attackers are world class, our defence still needs some serious work (although the emergence of Robbo, the signing of VVD and the form of Karius are mitigating this) and our midfield is … alright. The subject of our midfield is an interesting one, mostly because of the common criticisms and worries about our players. The most consistent criticism of our midfield is that it lacks an explosive punch, …
Observations as Liverpool Topple The Cherries

Observations as Liverpool Topple The Cherries

Liverpool maintained their present momentum with a routine win against Bournemouth on Saturday evening, scoring three goals as they surge ever closer to the top-four. Mohamed Salah was on the score-sheet once more, extending his tally as he chases down the Golden Boot award, while Roberto Firmino and Sadio Mané also converted. Maybe Mo can appeal for all three goals to be awarded to him? Here are the observations from the match. Mané makes history as Demba Ba's record is …
Sustainable Progression Clear to See as Liverpool March on in Europe

Sustainable Progression Clear to See as Liverpool March on in Europe

After the resounding, comprehensive display that was Liverpool's scorching 5-1 aggregate win over Manchester City, it seems unfair to spend my time talking about 'sustainability' and 'mature growth', but I'm going to anyway. You'll hear and read many impressive things in the coming days, weeks, months and perhaps even years about the tie, but what it showed me was that Liverpool's natural progression under Jurgen Klopp is under no signs of slowing down. The Reds have seen too often in …
Liverpool v Bournemouth Preview - Key Battles

Liverpool v Bournemouth Preview - Key Battles

A UEFA Champions League semi-final spot has been sealed, but there is no time for Liverpool to rest on their laurels. The Reds welcome Bournemouth to Anfield for the late kickoff on Saturday, as they look to strengthen their grip on a place inside the Premier League's top 4. The Cherries have drawn their last two games 2-2, with a last-gasp Joshua King goal giving them a share of the spoils against Crystal Palace in their last outing. Liverpool didn't …
