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, …
Fabinho and Fekir Perfect For Klopp's Versatile Reds

Fabinho and Fekir Perfect For Klopp's Versatile Reds

I hate starting any article about Liverpool with a comparison to Man United. But sometimes an opportunity presents itself for such a stark comparison and it gets stuck in your head to the point where it’s impossible to avoid. So indulge me for a moment. When talking to a United fan recently (I know), he mentioned that they desperately needed a right-winger and Bale would be perfect. I pointed out that they have Sanchez, Martial, Rashford et al, and he …

Liverpool's Premier League Lineups - a Stats Analysis: Part 2

In part 1 of the lineup analysis, I had a look at our goalkeepers and defense. Part 2 will focus on midfield and attack. The midfield Even after Karius' nightmare performance in Kiev, the midfield is still Liverpool's weakest line going into 2018/2019. Emre Can is likely leaving, James Milner will be 33, Jordan Henderson is injury prone and not consistent, the Ox is injured, Gini Wijnaldum has a tendency to disappear at times and Adam Lallana had the worst …

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 …
Time For Liverpool To Prove Nice Guys Can Finish First

Time For Liverpool To Prove Nice Guys Can Finish First

Bias exists in football, there is no doubt about that. We all overly heap praise on the teams we support and the players we love, while those we dislike must do something magical to earn a similar level of adoration. One thing that has nothing to do with favouritism, however, is just what a likeable bunch of players Liverpool have nowadays. Sure, we will instantly warm to our own players more than Man United or Everton fans would, but even …
Kiev Just The Start For Klopp's Exciting Reds

Kiev Just The Start For Klopp's Exciting Reds

For many, in fact a whole generation of Liverpool fans only slightly younger than me, the Champions League Final in Kiev could well be their biggest night of supporting Liverpool Football Club. Istanbul and the glory that it provided was 13 solid years ago, and whilst the Reds came close to winning the Premier League in 13/14 (arguably a bigger achievement than winning in Kiev this year), that never came down to a single night of football, the way that …

Don't you dare doubt Dom Solanke

Don't you dare doubt Dom Solanke

Twenty-year-old Dom Solanke was signed last summer in a heist from Chelsea. The forward subsequently went on to take the U20 World Cup by storm, taking home the Golden Ball for the tournament’s most outstanding player. A PRESEASON OF PROMISE After showing flashes throughout Liverpool’s preseason schedule, there was a serious buzz around Solanke as it looked like the Reds had pulled one over on the Plastics once again.
