Daniel Sturridge: Talent Plagued By Injury

Daniel Sturridge: Talent Plagued By Injury

Jurgen Klopp’s one word answer regarding Daniel Sturridge’s fitness after the disappointing 2-1 defeat to Crystal Palace provides the perfect summary of his Liverpool career. Injury stricken, the England international has been side-lined for a staggering 640 days since the 2011/12 season – the 9th worst record in the Premier League. It means he’s missed over 50% of Liverpool’s games since joining 3 and a half years ago. Making the move over to Merseyside in January 2013, Sturridge represented somewhat …
The Sakho Debate

The Sakho Debate

Is there another player that divides opinion more than Mamadou Sakho? I know he isn’t in a red shirt at the moment, but this debate is starting to brew - therefore I thought I’d finally put it to bed. To be honest, it’s starting to get a wee bit irrelevant. Whenever our defence struggles to keep or clean sheet or after we win/lose a game, the first thing I hear from Liverpool fans is ‘Sakho’. There have been subsets of supporters …
Liverpool in 2016/17: Has Progress Been Made?

Liverpool in 2016/17: Has Progress Been Made?

With an international break ensuring that there’s no Premier League football this weekend, and with nine games to go in a finely poised season, this is the perfect time to assess Liverpool’s season, where it’s at and what we need to do in our final few games, as well as our general development under Jürgen Klopp. This article will look at how the season has gone so far, what’s left for the club to do, and whether or not significant …
Matip, Wijnaldum & Mane Proving Klopp Should Be Trusted This Summer

Matip, Wijnaldum & Mane Proving Klopp Should Be Trusted This Summer

Many past Liverpool managers have experienced utterly disastrous summer transfer windows. Gerard Houllier, Rafa Benitez and Brendan Rodgers all spectacularly failed to build on near title-winning seasons in 2001/02, 2008/09 and 2013/14, respectively, with dross such as El Hadji Diouf, Salif Diao, Philipp Degen and Alberto Aquilani bought in. Even Kenny Dalglish, for all his understandable God-like status at Anfield, decided to sign Jose Enrique, Charlie Adam and Andy Carroll. When the end of Jurgen Klopp’s first season as Liverpool …
A Big Summer Ahead for Klopp

A Big Summer Ahead for Klopp

Since the turn of the year, Liverpool have been inconsistent at best; the Reds have played well in getting results against the big teams (beating Arsenal and Tottenham Hotspur, and taking points off Chelsea and Manchester United), but have struggled against the lower-ranked sides (losing to Swansea City and Hull, failing to beat Sunderland, and even last weekend’s win over Burnley wasn’t pretty). This is Klopp’s biggest problem, as it was Rodgers before him, and Dalglish’s before that. It could …
I Blame Klopp

I Blame Klopp

Deflated. Like a sugar high that suddenly disappeared and the child is lethargic. No more laughs. Tantrums are thrown without actually knowing why that high disappeared. That's how it felt for me after the 2nd goal was slotted in between Mignolet's legs and Hull City ran away with the 3 points. I was distraught. That happens when you harbour so much of hope about five weeks back. So much hope of challenging for the title until the very end because …
The Running Man - Adam Lallana

The Running Man - Adam Lallana

While fatigue will certainly have taken its toll on several Premier League teams during the gruelling Christmas fixtures, one man seems completely unaffected by it all...one Adam Lallana. The England international covered a total of 13.22km in the 2-2 draw with Sunderland, recording 12.88km in the win against Manchester City just two days before. Both distances were the highest ran by any Liverpool player in the Premier League during the Bank Holiday weekend. Despite struggling under Brendan Rodgers’ tutelage, Adam …
Liverpool FC: Let's See How Far We've Come

Liverpool FC: Let's See How Far We've Come

Perspective is often the rarest of commodities in football. Swept up in the bustling action of the season, results are often what matter the most. The mood of a fanbase is determined by the way their team is playing, and more importantly, whether or not they won their last three games. Winning three in a row; now that’s grounds for celebration. Losing three in a row, and the mood will be one of despair. Anything in between – and it’s …

One Football's Liverpool FC - End of Year Awards

It's been quite the entertaining year as a Liverpool supporter. Here are my end of year awards for 2016 for Liverpool FC, in conjunction with OneFootball. Best XI Coutinho Firmino Mane Can Henderson Lallana Milner Sakho Matip Clyne             Karius I've gone with Karius in goal because I think Liverpool have had good results on the whole with him in between the sticks and I believe in the long term he will improve and become …
Roberto Firmino: A New Breed of Striker

Roberto Firmino: A New Breed of Striker

While not a natural striker, Roberto Firmino has been at the heart of everything good from Liverpool this season, grabbing the plaudits on a continual basis. Jurgen Klopp’s description of the Brazilian as nothing short of a bargain is therefore hardly surprising. Slow Start Arriving for a fee of £29million, Firmino initially seemed to struggle at Anfield. Deployed out wide, the Brazilian found it hard to make a consistent impact on games, only showing rare flashes of what we could later …
