Liverpool Tactics for United: Out-Manoeuvring Mourinho

Liverpool Tactics for United: Out-Manoeuvring Mourinho

With the nervous energy ticking over as we approach Saturday's game, what follows are some musings on the United game. We drew with United twice last season and struggled to create chances against them, such is Mourinho's mastery at controlling and limiting space against top quality opposition. We continue to struggle against the parked bus, and the fact that United are stronger than us following the transfer window means, in our current form, getting anything out of Saturday's game will …
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 …

Improving Liverpool FC - Clutch Players

Improving Liverpool FC - Clutch Players

What is the best way to improve Liverpool Football Club? Despite a positive start to the season, culminating in a 4-0 win over Arsenal, the Reds problems are more apparent than ever and after a dismal September, a straightforward victory seems nigh on impossible to accomplish. Some of Liverpool’s pervading issues are obvious: we need both competent centre-backs and a coherent defensive structure; we need to reorganise and solidify our midfield; we aren’t pressing very well; the squad isn’t deep …

Return Of Under-Appreciated Lallana Key For Liverpool

Return Of Under-Appreciated Lallana Key For Liverpool

The brilliance of this Liverpool team is its attack, with Jurgen Klopp a naturally positive manager who thrives off his players performing with fluency and freedom. The Reds’ defending may have left plenty to be desired under the charismatic German, but his side have produced some truly great attacking performances in the two years since he took charge. One man who has often been a catalyst in these displays, and everything good about Liverpool’s relentless style, is Adam Lallana. The …
September Slump: What Next For Jurgen?

September Slump: What Next For Jurgen?

In the aftermath of Liverpool's shocking 2-0 exit from the Carabao Cup at the hands of Leicester, Jurgen Klopp admitted he was sick of the goals Liverpool were conceding. In September alone, Liverpool have conceded 10 goals in a span of 4 matches.  Fans and pundits have criticised Jurgen for not strengthening his defence over the summer and a lack of plan B when van Dijk wasn't available. Jurgen responded by saying he had looked at alternatives over a million …
Mo Salah: Liverpool’s New Dirk Kuyt, With A Twist

Mo Salah: Liverpool’s New Dirk Kuyt, With A Twist

On the face of it, comparing Mo Salah and Dirk Kurt is the equivalent of saying Breaking Bad and Game Of Thrones are similar TV shows. Kuyt is someone who got the very best out of his ability throughout an admirable career, occasionally resembling a pub player during an off day. Salah, meanwhile, is a player who oozes quality and natural talent, and possesses the kind of pace that most of us can only dream of. He is aesthetically-pleasing - …
Liverpool 2-2 Sevilla: A Tactical Breakdown

Liverpool 2-2 Sevilla: A Tactical Breakdown

A promising, but so too a very much frustrating match, Liverpool's long-awaited return to the Champions League group stage was disappointing, as from doing the hard work - having to come from a goal down - to then dominating the game, the team once again threw away what should have been three points, instead taking just the one. Between Firmino's equaliser and the end of the first-half, Liverpool were imperious, tearing through Sevilla with some phenomenal attacking play, involving defenders, midfielders …
