Tale of Liverpool's Season: Doubters to Believers

Tale of Liverpool's Season: Doubters to Believers

Jürgen Klopp had one true ambition this season. Turning doubters into believers. An impressive pre-season, capped off with a 4-0 demolition of Barcelona at a sold-out Wembley Stadium had expectations running high already. But it was the 4-3 victory over Arsenal in the very first game of the season that really got people talking. Sadio Mané was the replacement for Raheem Sterling that Liverpool FC had so desperately needed. Roberto Firmino was well and truly into his groove, Gini Wijnaldum's …
All Or Nothing For Klopp And The Reds

All Or Nothing For Klopp And The Reds

"A war of attrition, competition, competition, competition," he said. "This means a fight for everything week in, week out," he elaborated, but it turned out that Jürgen Klopp was not describing the ferocious rivalry between the members of the Liverpool squad to get cast in the latest Nivea television ad, a B-Movie fever dream which features Nathaniel Clyne lasciviously soaping himself and James Milner being crushed under the foot of some sort of monster. I'm not even joking, click the link. …

Scouting Luan - The Silky Brazilian

The rumours are coming thick and fast, and while Liverpool stumbles their way towards one form of European football – preferably the Champions League – Jürgen Klopp has spoken of his resolve to improve his team significantly in the summer. Included in that improvement would be a backup attacker, who’s able to fill in when the likes of Firmino, Mané and Origi are unable to maintain the demanding schedule of a team making strides in Europe.

Klopp's Tactical Ineptitude Costs Liverpool

Klopp's Tactical Ineptitude Costs Liverpool

Liverpool were presented with the opportunity to consolidate their stranglehold on top 4 when Southampton came to Anfield - a win would've taken the Reds ahead of Manchester City in 3rd, but instead Liverpool produced a dire performance which saw a blow in their hopes for Champions League football next term. Before kick off, a lot of supporters were saying how a win here would be a huge statement of intent as it would be a mental and tactical block …

Assessing Klopp's Tactical Options for Watford

After yet another home loss to Crystal Palace at the weekend, that's the Eagles' third win in as many visits to Anfield, and the Reds' chances of top 4 are hanging in the balance. As a result, Liverpool's trip to Vicarage Road on Monday night becomes all the more important. Despite winning the previous two away games at Stoke and West Brom, this Liverpool side has looked far from their fluid best and are still struggling to find the solution …

Individual Inconsistency Continues To Haunt Liverpool

Individual Inconsistency Continues To Haunt Liverpool

Sometimes, you can’t help but wonder if Liverpool actually enjoy doing things the hard way. Sunday’s insipid 2-1 defeat at home to Crystal Palace was one of the poorest showings of the season, at a time when such a flat display was inexcusable. Jurgen Klopp had a bad day at the office, making his substitutions too late and seemingly failing to get his players revved up for the occasion. Far too many Reds were nowhere to be seen on the …

Candidates For Liverpool's MOTM Against West Brom

Candidates For Liverpool's MOTM Against West Brom

No type of win betters Liverpool's deserved 1-0 win over West Brom on Sunday. Hammering sides often can be very entertaining for the impartial - but there is nothing more satisfying than the wins where it requires a dogged mentality, determination and grit. The Reds coped through adversity in a nerve-wracking finale; which just goes to show that Liverpool are beginning to notch up 'ugly' wins; having previously being criticised for trying to be too entertaining and not divulging any …
