Fabinho and Fekir Perfect For Klopp's Versatile Reds

Fabinho and Fekir Perfect For Klopp's Versatile Reds

I hate starting any article about Liverpool with a comparison to Man United. But sometimes an opportunity presents itself for such a stark comparison and it gets stuck in your head to the point where it’s impossible to avoid. So indulge me for a moment. When talking to a United fan recently (I know), he mentioned that they desperately needed a right-winger and Bale would be perfect. I pointed out that they have Sanchez, Martial, Rashford et al, and he …
Lovren and Liverpool Moving On

Lovren and Liverpool Moving On

I’ve never taken defeat against Manchester United well. Even back in the eighties when we were THE team, in our era of domination, defeat to them was particularly sour. Maybe it was because I had friends who supported them and it was their rare opportunity to taunt me. They were still a big club, with big ideas and would spend big in pursuit of success, but they still couldn’t break our stranglehold. They were few and far between back then, …
Degsy Does Dallas - the end for Lovren?

Degsy Does Dallas - the end for Lovren?

Talking to Trev Downey for the Molby on the Spot podcast this week, Jan Molby gave his opinion on Dejan Lovren after the Man United game: "He's played himself back into trouble, hasn't he? In terms of Mourinho and his tactics, there's no doubt that they picked on Lovren a little bit. They decided that Lukaku could handle him in the air, and also physically. However, I still think there's a long way from Lukaku winning the flick on or …
Manchester United 2-1 Liverpool: A Tactical Breakdown

Manchester United 2-1 Liverpool: A Tactical Breakdown

There's no game that manages to make me as uneasy as the Manchester United tie at Old Trafford: genuinely, I can't eat on matchdays. Maybe it's the trauma of defeats and the subsequent stick that every young fan gets at school that's caused it - who knows, but in all seriousness, after Liverpool won 0-3 there back in 2013/14 - with three penalties awarded to Liverpool - I was, and still am, utterly convinced Brendan Rodgers performed some juju or …
Observations from a disappointing afternoon | Man Utd 2-1 Liverpool

Observations from a disappointing afternoon | Man Utd 2-1 Liverpool

Liverpool made their way to Old Trafford in the best of form as the Premier League's marquee fixture finally lived up to its billing, with the Red Devils emerging 2-1 victors. Marcus Rashford's first-half brace put Manchester United in command, but Liverpool didn't give up without a fight. Eric Bailly's calamitous own goal gave Liverpool some hope, but there was to be no further joy for the Reds, as United defended like only a Jose Mourinho side can. Here are some key highlights …

Man Utd 2-1 Liverpool: Craig Pawson Inspires Utd Win As Controversy Rules All

Games between Liverpool and Manchester United at Old Trafford tend to follow a certain narrative with a free-flowing attacking unit coming up against a double-decker bus. Then there's the referee who's never too far from the headlines. This game was no different, providing the perfect illustration of a Mourinho-Klopp showdown in an affair dominated by controversy. The first-half displayed the not-so-impressive side of Liverpool; Dejan Lovren did Dejan Lovren things after spouting his mouth pre-match about forming a formidable partnership …

Mourinho's Double-Decker Denies the Reds - Liverpool 0 - 0 Manchester United

The Details Date: 14/10/2017 Venue: Anfield, Liverpool Background This game, eh? This bloody game. Especially when it's the early kick-off on a Saturday, this bloody game. The remaining happiness levels of our weekend largely depended on the following ninety minutes of football. You could argue it shouldn't, but it does. United arrive at Anfield seven points ahead of Liverpool and second in the league, just trailing City on goal difference. Liverpool have been off the boil, somewhat, since Arsenal were …
Ben Woodburn - Minimum expectation, maximum reward

Ben Woodburn - Minimum expectation, maximum reward

Ben Woodburn was born 77 days prior to the turn of the millennium. Ben Woodburn is now a goalscorer on debut for both Liverpool and Wales. Will England regret losing him to their neighbour? Only time will tell, because as of now, Woodburn is just a special talent, nothing more than that, nothing less. It important for fans, Chris Coleman and Jurgen Klopp to ensure that they manage Woodburn and his growth well. The management will be in terms of …
Daniel Sturridge and Media Manipulation

Daniel Sturridge and Media Manipulation

Daniel Sturridge is one of the elite forwards in Europe. That's not an opinion, that's an actual fact. Yet if you were to scan social media or turn on one of the sports channels people go on as if it's beyond belief he's getting into the England XI ahead of the likes of Harry Kane, Jamie Vardy and Marcus Rashford. If all four were firing then maybe, just maybe, there would be something to talk about as in who fits the …
