Alberto Moreno - A Man Reborn

Alberto Moreno - A Man Reborn

If you want to find the best possible example of a stubborn football fan, find someone who really, really doesn’t rate Alberto Moreno. We live in an age where we all pride ourselves on being right about certain players, managers and teams, and admitting you may have actually been wrong about one, or simply giving them praise or criticising them, seems impossible. This is painfully apparent with Moreno, who has gained a legion of loyal haters incapable of doing anything …

Tactical Breakdown of Liverpool's draw against Burnley

Tactical Breakdown of Liverpool's draw against Burnley

Liverpool's draw against Burnley was an intensely frustrating affair, bearing the hallmarks of Liverpool's troubles during the 2016/17 league campaign, and several preceding it. Liverpool dominated with the ball and had 35 efforts yet only created one 'big' chance, and Burnley were actually the closest to scoring, as Liverpool, again, switched off defensively for a set-piece. However, with seven changes from the previous game, and with both Philippe Coutinho and Daniel Sturridge starting, Liverpool played differently, and today; other than the …

Liverpool 1 - 1 Burnley: Anfield bears witness to another draw

Competition: Premier League Date: 16/9/17 Venue: Anfield September has been a sobering month for Liverpool fans. Gone are the exuberant days of August and with them, our care-free attitude to just enjoying our Redmen attacking, scoring, and attacking again. September has opened our eyes to those defensive concerns which we knew were always there. In August, we were able to sweep those matters under the proverbial rug. September, however, seems to be that better friend. Unlike August, she won’t let …
Liverpool v Burnley - Bouncing back with three points

Liverpool v Burnley - Bouncing back with three points

The Details Competition - Premier League Venue - Anfield Referee - Roger East Date & Time - September 16th, 2017 @ 15:00 BST Form Do I really need to mention last weekend’s game at the Etihad? We all know the team collapsed and lacked leadership after going a man down. The lack of game-management from the manager and the “leaders” on the pitch left me infuriated afterwards. Let’s hope the team grow from the experience. What doesn’t kill you, makes …
