Liverpool and that Semi-final feeling again

Liverpool and that Semi-final feeling again

When I watched Ryan Babel sprint past a tired Cesc Fabregas to finish off an incredible Champions League night, little did I know it was going to take me that long to experience that feeling again. That feeling! That feeling of being in the semi-final of the UEFA Champions League. That feeling is back again, thanks to a bunch of heroes led by Jurgen Klopp. That feeling is just made all the more special by the happenings of the last ten …
Liverpool's Centre-Backs - Consistently Inconsistent

Liverpool's Centre-Backs - Consistently Inconsistent

What a game! There is nothing like a European night at Anfield. I was several thousand kilometres away and couldn't fall asleep all night, like a little kid, just buzzing. The attack and midfield will rightfully claim most of the glory but the defending in the second half was probably the Red's best display in that regard in years. Holding the offensive juggernaut that is Manchester City to ZERO shots on target is as impressive as anything LFC have done …
The Return of Roy - Crystal Palace v Liverpool

The Return of Roy - Crystal Palace v Liverpool

Come the summer of 2010 I’d had enough of Liverpool Football Club. Before you reach for your fiery torch and summon a lynch mob to my house I must offer up a defence. We’ve all had feelings like this from time to time. There is no one alive who thinks that the custodians of L4 are 100% right at all time and they, like anyone, are capable of instigating an over-powering sense of frustration, but in 2010 it was more …

Salah continues to break records as Liverpool's run …
Jorginho vs Ndidi - Which do Liverpool Need More?

Jorginho vs Ndidi - Which do Liverpool Need More?

With Emre Can’s departure to the exotic shores of Turin imminent, Liverpool have recently been casting an eye towards a new midfielder. The Times’ Paul Joyce recently revealed that Napoli’s Jorginho is a target for Jürgen Klopp to fill his need for a #6 – a deep midfielder to sit at the base of a three or next to Naby Keita in a two. So too has Wilfrid Ndidi been linked with a move to Klopp’s red revolution, leading many …
Liverpool v Newcastle United Preview - Key Battles

Liverpool v Newcastle United Preview - Key Battles

High-flying Liverpool head into a crucial phase of the season, looking to strengthen their grip on the top 4 and maybe even second place in the Premier League. They welcome ex-manager Rafa Benitez and his Newcastle United side to Anfield on Saturday, as they look to continue an impressive run of form where the Reds have been free-scoring and have considerably reduced the number of goals they leak. For Newcastle, this game will be treated as a bonus fixture where …

FC Porto were destroyed on their home turf and last weekend West …
Liverpool Should Fear Nobody In Search For European Cup No.6

Liverpool Should Fear Nobody In Search For European Cup No.6

Liverpool just stuffed the so-called ‘best team in Europe right now’. They didn’t fluke a win against them - in fact, the eventual 4-3 scoreline was very generous on a Man City side who actually performed quite well. It was a victory that showed exactly how far the Reds have come with Jurgen Klopp in charge, and there is a growing feeling that something special is on the horizon at Anfield. Although the Premier League title has once again evaded …
What We've Learnt About Klopp's LFC | Part 2: Midfield dynamics and game impact

What We've Learnt About Klopp's LFC | Part 2: Midfield dynamics and game impact

Following on from part 1 of this series, which can be read here. After more disappointing dropped points at the Emirates, that piece is worth a read. In this piece, I will take a brief look at the midfield and Klopp's use of his players in his various systems. Klopp is the best manager we've had since Rafa. The latter is still the best and most recent yard-stick to assess Klopp's performance and team building. Our midfield is clearly sub-standard …
Liverpool's New-Found Squad Depth Paying Dividends

Liverpool's New-Found Squad Depth Paying Dividends

Since Liverpool stopped ruling English football in 1990, there are many reasons why a return to the summit of the game has continued to evade them. There have been dreadful signings, bemusing managerial appointments, unprofessional squads and rivals spending vast chunks of money, among many others factors. One of the Reds' greatest Achilles heels has been a lack of squad depth - something that has held back many of their best teams over the last quarter of a century. The …
