Two Years of Jurgen Klopp

Two Years of Jurgen Klopp

October 8th, 2015 was the day Jurgen Klopp stepped into his role as Liverpool F.C. manager. Considered a real coup, the club had brought in a manager of established quality to try and end a frustrating trophy drought. It's been a whirlwind of a two years - has Klopp turned doubters into believers? Positives When Klopp walked into Anfield, he took up a distinctly average team without an identity. Having come sixth in the 2014/15 Premier League season, Liverpool were …
Liverpool FC - The Wasteful Comeback Kings of England

Liverpool FC - The Wasteful Comeback Kings of England

Another game has passed and the mighty Reds fired blanks yet again. Somehow the ball didn't go in Spartak Moscow's net a second time. The mixture of feelings after such is hard describe. LFC managed to fight back after going 1-0 down. The result is not fatal in any way - reaching the knockout phase is still fully in our hands. The build up play was very good. And yet you can't help but feel we let one slip away …

Serial Captain & Audi Cup Runner Up: What is a Jordan Henderson?

Jordan Henderson. League Cup Winner 2012, Europa League Runner Up 2016, Audi Cup Runner Up 2017 & Serial Young Player of the Year Award Winner. His honours list reads like a small pack of Revels. Yet somewhat amazingly, despite continuing to divide opinion and never really cementing his position as a winner, Henderson is a man who continues to defy critics and has somehow managed to work himself into the role of Captain for both club and country. For Liverpool, …
A Reminder of Klopp's Dortmund Cycle

A Reminder of Klopp's Dortmund Cycle

Liverpool are currently experiencing a problematic period in which the team are yet to win in four matches against Manchester City, Sevilla, Burnley and Leicester. Whether we beat Leicester on the weekend or not, supporters of the club are rightly concerned with the club’s current lack of positive results and are further consumed with anxiety when watching the team ‘defend’. Although these concerns are understandable, the doubts about Jurgen Klopp being the right man for the job are completely ludicrous …
The

The "Klopp Out" Brigade: An Embarrassment To Liverpool's Fanbase

If you want Jurgen Klopp to be sacked as Liverpool manager, you are talking complete nonsense and are everything wrong with modern football. It really is that simple. Opinions are part of what makes being a football fan so much fun, but when people spout knee-jerk bile for the sake of it, it becomes irrelevant. All it shows is that they clearly don’t understand the game, and that they will only ever be happy with the Reds if they win …
FSG - Learning From Past Mistakes?

FSG - Learning From Past Mistakes?

Things have changed a lot in Liverpool football club and in football in general since Fenway Sports Group acquired the Reds back in 2010. FSG themselves have evolved as owners after trying several different approaches in managing the organization within the club with questionable success. It is still too early to rate this summer's deals (or the lack of them). Some supporters are cautiously optimistic, for others failing to sing a starting caliber centre-back is inexcusable. LFC went after top …

Liverpool Always One Step Behind Until they Fix Their Shaky Foundations

Naturally, they want to be vying for the title, mounting an assault on the domestic cup and pushing for that all-important Champions League trophy. In order to do that, you need to have water tight foundations and carry real authority and verve going forward. Liverpool have such prowess in the final third of …
Reviewing A Banquet Without Wine - A History of the Reds in the PL Era

Reviewing A Banquet Without Wine - A History of the Reds in the PL Era

When offered the opportunity to read an advance copy of A Banquet Without Wine, I eagerly accepted; it was a welcome break from the academic historical literature which my studies demand, and, given my experience with previous works from The Tomkins Times, my qualitative expectations were high. Beyond that, I remained open to hearing an interpretation of Liverpool's recent history, that I, like many fans, have lived through, and is well versed in. For Liverpool fans, the story detailed within A Banquet …

Why Liverpool's Young Talent Are Unlikely To Succeed

Why Liverpool's Young Talent Are Unlikely To Succeed

A lot of discussion in pre-season has been made of Liverpool’s young talents, and how much they are likely to feature for the club next season. But the sad truth is that the majority of them simply have no future at Liverpool Football Club, and it’s okay to admit that. Looking at the current clutch of young players, and focusing specifically on those who have been in and around the first team, or have been touted as such, there is …
