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

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 …
Jordan Henderson - The Best Is Yet To Come

Jordan Henderson - The Best Is Yet To Come

There's a saying that springs to mind when I think of Liverpool captain Jordan Henderson - that is fool me once, shame on you, fool me twice, shame on me. For a lot of fans my use of this analogy when I talk about Henderson may be a small bit confusing. Well let me explain. When Henderson came to Liverpool in the summer of 2011, I like many other Liverpool fans were of the opinion, that Henderson simply wasn't good enough to …
The Weight of the Shirt: Being a Red in America

The Weight of the Shirt: Being a Red in America

My kids know the look.  My eyes narrow.  The left half of my face curl bunches up.  The forehead creases become visible from afar.  It means I’ve spotted another United shirt somewhere on the street here in Washington, D.C.  Or an Arsenal shirt.  And the kids these days love them some Spurs gear.  I’ll mumble something under my breath and look about with little hope of seeing Liverpool red somewhere nearby to balance the assault on my eyes.  But it …
Liverpool 2016/17 v Liverpool 2013/14: Only One Winner

Liverpool 2016/17 v Liverpool 2013/14: Only One Winner

Back in the summer, who really expected to be this happy about Liverpool by the time early November arrived? Come on, be honest. We all saw that daunting run of early fixtures, and when the joy of beating Arsenal was soured by the woeful result at Burnley, even a top-four challenge felt a long way off. Jurgen Klopp’s Reds have been a revelation since their Turf Moor woes, though, going unbeaten in all competitions and topping the Premier League in …
What Does Michael Edwards' Promotion mean for Liverpool FC?

What Does Michael Edwards' Promotion mean for Liverpool FC?

Just over a year ago, not long after Brendan Rodgers was sacked, the Daily Mail published an article hatchet job depicting Liverpool FC's head of performance analysis Michael Edwards as a kiss-arse who basically set Rodgers up to fail. There was mention of a cosy relationship between Edwards and the owners and how they'd regularly share emails throughout the day. I mean, how dare an employee share videos of cats with his boss.. Eddie, as he liked the staff at Melwood …
Where is the praise for Liverpool's transfer committee?

Where is the praise for Liverpool's transfer committee?

In English football there has always been an aversion to ‘the continental model’ of football management. The likes of Sir Alex Ferguson, Arsene Wenger and Bill Shankley were such enduring individuals at their clubs that the successes of their teams have been attributed to the all powerful men that ruled them. The great managers of English football dominated every facet of their club, and so, unsurprisingly, the attitude in this country has been sympathetic towards managers who want utter control of their clubs, …
