Observations as Liverpool Stutter Against The Baggies

It all seemed to be going so well for Liverpool. A much-changed side spearheaded by Danny Ings took an early lead before a second-half strike from Mohamed Salah put the away side two goals to the good. Three points heading to Merseyside and plenty of rested legs ahead of far more important games. No-one, not even the most optimistic of West Brom fans would've predicted the last fifteen minutes of the game. From 2-0 down, the home side fought back …

The Klopp Revolution

The year is 2016, the date April 14th. Liverpool welcomed hordes of Dortmund fans as they flooded the city. The Germans had finally landed on English soil.

Key Stats from Liverpool 3-0 Bournemouth. Easy Street.

Liverpool turned in another comfortable win at Anfield, this time against Bournemouth, with the Cherries routed 3-0. But what were the key stats from a happy evening for Klopp’s Reds? Goals Galore Liverpool notched their 300th goal under Jürgen Klopp, in just 148 games. The team that has been scoring at a clip of two goals a game for his entire regime scored more than that today and that was partly down to the brilliance of his forwards. Both Sadio Mané …

Observations as Liverpool Topple The Cherries

Liverpool maintained their present momentum with a routine win against Bournemouth on Saturday evening, scoring three goals as they surge ever closer to the top-four. Mohamed Salah was on the score-sheet once more, extending his tally as he chases down the Golden Boot award, while Roberto Firmino and Sadio Mané also converted. Maybe Mo can appeal for all three goals to be awarded to him? Here are the observations from the match. Mané makes history as Demba Ba's record is …
Liverpool Player Ratings From Cherries Crushing

Liverpool Player Ratings From Cherries Crushing

Three points closer to more night's like that one against Manchester City, is how I'm viewing it. An afternoon that will be quickly forgotten but one that Liverpool need more of, as they beat Bournemouth 3-0. A day for the goal charts as Firmino gets his 25th of the season, overshadowed somewhat by Salah's 40th. Not a bad time to be a Red. Standout figure at the back Loris Karius (6): Had literally nothing to do first half apart from …

Observations as the Derby Ends in a Drab Stalemate

The Merseyside Derby ended in yet another dull stalemate as Liverpool and Everton played out a 0-0 draw. The result ensured that Liverpool stayed in the top 3 as they look forward to the second leg of the Champions League quarter-finals. The 'put-together' line up With one eye on the Champions League, and the mounting injury concerns meant that there was a real struggle putting together a cohesive lineup. The line up had the returning Clyne start for the first …
Liverpool’s Young Full-backs Produce a Performance for the Ages

Liverpool’s Young Full-backs Produce a Performance for the Ages

This time last year, imagine being told that Trent Alexander-Arnold and Andrew Robertson would be starring in a Champions League quarter-final for Liverpool. It would have felt ludicrous. The former was still an 18-year-old who had made just 10 appearances for the Reds, and a fully fit Nathaniel Clyne was a nailed-on starter. Nobody had him pencilled in to be a regular so soon. Robertson, meanwhile, was on the verge of relegation with Hull City, and despite being a rare …
Liverpool 3-0 Manchester City: A Tactical Breakdown

Liverpool 3-0 Manchester City: A Tactical Breakdown

Fine lines. The thinnest of margins. The point at which dreamland meets bedlam. Where delirium bisects mayhem. That's where Liverpool fans found themselves as they watched the unthinkable happen. Liverpool had pressed Manchester City into submission in January, but Pep Guardiola, the greatest manager and tactical innovator of his generation would surely not let it happen again, would he? Acutely aware of the pressing prowess of Liverpool, Guardiola set City up with Fernandinho in the same position as he was in …
Liverpool Football Club has a new identity

Liverpool Football Club has a new identity

Fast, high energy, counter-attacking football - Liverpool Football Club has a new identity. When Jurgen Klopp was appointed manager back in October 2015, Liverpool Football Club was a team that lacked any sort of identity, yes we were a historic club who once use to grace & conquer Europe on a regular basis but ask any supporter what a Liverpool side looked liked following Rodgers' dismissal and they'd find it hard to tell you. They might point you in the …
