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 …

Liverpool Fans and Their Great Expectations

Southampton 1-0 Liverpool. A truly dreadful display, that could have seen the end of Liverpool's EFL Cup ambitions if not for an impressive performance by Karius, and woeful finishing on Southampton's part. To take my mind off the defeat, I decided to watch a film, and Christopher Nolan's magnum opus was on television, The Dark Knight. Rather surprisingly I found an intriguing parallel that Heath Ledger's The Joker raised, when in conversation with Harvey Dent,
"...nobody panics, because it's all part of the …
EFL Cup Semi-Final Preview: Reds Look to Bounce Back

EFL Cup Semi-Final Preview: Reds Look to Bounce Back

It has not been the best start to 2017 for Jurgen Klopp's Liverpool. In the 2 games that the Reds have played, they have had two draws. The first one - a 2-2 stalemate at Sunderland - might be excusable, given that it kicked off less than 48 hours after a taxing game against Manchester City. But Sunday's goalless draw in the FA Cup against Plymouth Argyle is inexcusable. Even with the much-changed team, Liverpool should be beating Plymouth. So, …

Daniel Sturridge A Crucial Figure Between Now & May

Daniel Sturridge A Crucial Figure Between Now & May

Without Daniel Sturridge, Liverpool would not have beaten Everton at Goodison Park. It really is as simple as that. The 27-year-old was introduced late in the day at the home of the Reds’ local rivals, and every time he got the ball, it felt as though something may happen. He looked bright and unpredictable, and you sensed that he was the last person Everton’s defenders wanted to see enter the fray, with legs and minds tiring. It was Sturridge’s run …

Everton v Liverpool Preview - Key Battles

It doesn't get much bigger than this. Well maybe it does, for Liverpool, but definitely not for Everton. Derby day is among the most special of the season and this time, both sides head into the big day in good spirits. The Blues arrested an awful run of form with a big win against Arsenal on Tuesday and Liverpool won their first game in three with a clinical display at the Riverside Stadium against Middlesbrough. But as the old cliche …
Is Origi pushing Sturridge out the team?

Is Origi pushing Sturridge out the team?

Is Origi finally pushing Sturridge out the team? Recent goals throw the Belgian up the pecking order. 2013/14 was an exciting season for us Reds, as we all recall. The finest talent to wear the shirt in Suarez, some ruthless, entertaining football from the entire team and a born finisher – Daniel Sturridge – brought us close to the trophy that seems eternally unobtainable. The English forward was a huge part of that near-success with 21 goals and displayed his …
