How Alberto Moreno Could Help Break Buses

How Alberto Moreno Could Help Break Buses

It must be said, Liverpool have been on and off lately. That’s putting it rather mildly. To have such fantastic showings against Chelsea and Spurs, and then to produce…whatever THAT was against Wolverhampton and Hull; it’s indicative of a side with a fantastic plan A – one that gets the better of most teams who want the ball, but without a proper plan B. Of course; the idea that every football team necessarily needs a plan B when things aren’t …
What to do with Roberto Firmino if Liverpool sign a new striker

What to do with Roberto Firmino if Liverpool sign a new striker

There's been a lot of talk recently surrounding Roberto Firmino and whether the versatile Brazilian attacker is clinical enough in front of goal. There are arguments to be made from both sides of the fence. The truth is he can be hit-and-miss but fortunately for us we aren't overly reliant on him scoring every single game. He doesn't need to hit 30 goals. If he manages it then it's a bonus but the Liverpool system doesn't hinge on him going …
Spurs-Slaying Reds Are On The Road To Recovery

Spurs-Slaying Reds Are On The Road To Recovery

Up until Saturday, 2017 had been awful as a Liverpool supporter. Our pre-Christmas spring in the step was long gone, everything felt like a chore, and like Popeye without his spinach, you were left desperately hoping the Reds would give us a much-needed adrenalin shot. Why did we ever doubt them, though? There has been so much negativity surrounding the club this year , some of it warranted and some of it embarrassingly hyperbolic, but Saturday's fantastic 2-0 win over …
Defensive Deja Vu for Liverpool

Defensive Deja Vu for Liverpool

Defeat to Hull City meant Liverpool's disastrous start to 2017 continued. Jurgen Klopp's men have won just one of their 10 matches since the turn of the year and this run has seen relegation battlers Hull and Swansea pick up maximum points against them as well as having their FA Cup run brought to a premature end at the hands of Wolves, at Anfield. Fingers are being pointed and scapegoats are being identified. Emre Can isn't good enough to start. Dejan …
Liverpool lack imagination to overcome Hull City

Liverpool lack imagination to overcome Hull City

It is fair to say that Liverpool have been a disappointment at the start of 2017. They have been knocked out of both domestic cups with losses to Wolves in the FA Cup and Southampton in the EFL Cup. Along with the poor form in the cup Liverpool have yet to win a league match this year with draws against Manchester United, Sunderland and Chelsea and a loss to Swansea City. Prior to the turn of the year there was …
Hull City v Liverpool Preview - Key Battles

Hull City v Liverpool Preview - Key Battles

A wretched January is now a thing of the past. Liverpool beat only Plymouth Argyle in the entire month and exited both the FA Cup and the EFL Cup. But, luckily, the month had only 3 Premier League games in it, and that means that despite Liverpool's terrible form, they are still just a point off second place in the league. The month ended with a better performance than any of the other eight, as the Reds could consider themselves unlucky …
Why it would be a mistake to let Emre Can go

Why it would be a mistake to let Emre Can go

The Liverpool Echo hosted a Q&A on Tuesday and James Pearce revealed that Emre Can might be leaving Liverpool in the summer. “I wouldn’t say Emre Can is definitely off but his future is certainly up in the air, “He has been stalling over a new contract and clearly believes he’s worth more than Liverpool are offering. “Hopefully it will be sorted before the end of the season. If he doesn’t sign then it’s likely he will be sold because …

Liverpool v Swansea Preview - Key Battles

Liverpool v Swansea Preview - Key Battles

Liverpool have played two Premier League games in 2017 and drawn both. Both games were away from home. Both games were a case of the Reds having lost two points, having been ahead for a good part of the games. Jurgen Klopp's men will be back to the happier surrounds of Anfield, when Swansea come visiting on Saturday. By kickoff, it would have been more than a year since the Reds last lost a game at home, and with the …
Roberto Firmino's Return to Form?

Roberto Firmino's Return to Form?

It was going to happen eventually wasn't it? Fans were going to start to question the point of Roberto Firmino after his early season form inevitably dropped off. It felt like deja vu and the start of the 2015/16 season repeating itself all over again. You can't say it hasn't been coming though. The former Hoffenheim player scored three goals and grabbed five assists in his first 11 matches and there was a hope he'd finish the season with 20 …
