Priceless Sadio Mane Must Not Go Unloved at Liverpool

Priceless Sadio Mane Must Not Go Unloved at Liverpool

Football moves at a relentless pace. It only takes a string of good or bad performances to completely alter an opinion on a team or a player, with the modern game as knee-jerk as it has ever been. When it comes to Sadio Mane, this definitely applies, even though any sane Liverpool supporter knows full well how brilliant he is. He has been a revelation since joining from Southampton, becoming a key component of Europe’s most fluent, devastating attacking unit, …
Klopp's Liverpool Untitled... For Now

Klopp's Liverpool Untitled... For Now

Some will say this Liverpool team failed, that they stalled at the final hurdle. Ending another exhilarating campaign with nothing to show for it, Klopp’s failure to win in six straight finals may be a source of humour for rival fans. It may even have some fans questioning whether his tenure has truly been a success. It was just one of those days; ninety minutes bereft of luck with a series of unfortunate goalkeeping errors and an untimely injury to …
Nearly (First) Mission Accomplished for Jurgen Klopp

Nearly (First) Mission Accomplished for Jurgen Klopp

Jurgen Klopp’s self-ascribed objective of transforming Liverpool’s fan-base from “doubters to believers” has proven one of the most oft-repeated quotes in a regime marked by memorable soundbites. It was never going to be an easy task, and even as he led his side to consecutive top-four finishes (no mean feat given the unprecedented strength of the so-called ‘big six’) and developed a scintillating brand of attacking football, the doubters continued to question his every move, falling conspicuously silent during a …
Shooting From The Hip: Trailblazing to Kiev

Shooting From The Hip: Trailblazing to Kiev

A team with an esteemed European history, Kiev will be Liverpool’s first final in 11 years and their eighth overall, drawing them level with Barcelona – behind only AC Milan, Bayern Munich and this year’s opponents, Real Madrid. Yet, there’s been something unique about this campaign. It’s not often you see a team utterly blitz the Champions League. Jürgen Klopp’s gung-ho philosophy has seen Liverpool score a multitude of goals this season, both domestically and in Europe with a fiery …
Win!

Though I know I'll never lose affection For people and things that went before I know I'll often stop and think about them In my life, I love you more Allow me to explain if you will. You’ll need coffee. Tissues optional. Heart necessary. Fortitude compulsory. If 2011 was the season that started me, this season could so simply have been the one that finished me. Back then, so many years ago, I became a father for the first time. …
Don't Panic... Liverpool WILL Secure a Top-Four Finish

Don't Panic... Liverpool WILL Secure a Top-Four Finish

Wasn’t that Chelsea defeat an appalling watch on every level? After the meteoric high of reaching the Champions League final later this month, the entire game felt like a drag more than anything. The sun was shining, with beer gardens, beaches and parks with our names all over them, but we had to watch the Reds battle their way through a lifeless performance. This was all to be expected of course, with the effort levels in Rome last week taking …

Three Years And A Week: Liverpool 5 Roma 2

Three Years And A Week: Liverpool 5 Roma 2

It’s the early evening of 19th April 2015 and I’m walking home from Kingsbury tube station. The sun is on my back and summer is on the way, but my heart is heavy. I pull my phone out of my pockets and press the necessary digits to find young Sachin Nakrani with whom I am writing the book ‘We’re Everywhere, Us’ – a tome so magnificent that it still resonates in the Red world despite being three seasons old (will sign …
Wielding the Sword - Is Klopp's Philosophy Viable?

Wielding the Sword - Is Klopp's Philosophy Viable?

If ever a night encapsulated a team. Liverpool took their season to new heights with a thrilling, brave, brilliant performance at Anfield, smashing Roma to all four corners of the ground as they took a 5-0 lead in a European Cup Semi-Final. And then, well, you all know what happened next. Lovren switched off, Karius got beaten at his near post, Milner put his hand in the wrong place and suddenly we’re all nervous again. And there it was, in …
