Liverpool's Centre-Backs - Consistently Inconsistent

Liverpool's Centre-Backs - Consistently Inconsistent

What a game! There is nothing like a European night at Anfield. I was several thousand kilometres away and couldn't fall asleep all night, like a little kid, just buzzing. The attack and midfield will rightfully claim most of the glory but the defending in the second half was probably the Red's best display in that regard in years. Holding the offensive juggernaut that is Manchester City to ZERO shots on target is as impressive as anything LFC have done …
Observations as Klopp Reigns Supreme Over Hodgson

Observations as Klopp Reigns Supreme Over Hodgson

Liverpool managed to overcome a first-half deficit against bogey team Crystal Palace to take the three points at Selhurst Park after goals from Sadio Mane and Mohamed Salah turned the tie on its head. Here are the observations from the match. Why Always Me? If Liverpool were going to find a winner against Palace in the dying embers of the match, who else would be the man to get it other than Mohamed Salah? The Egyptian showed tremendous composure to …

Crystal Palace v Liverpool Preview - Convincing Reds Win predicted at Selhurst Park

The Details Venue - Selhurst Park, London Referee - Neil Swarbrick Date & Time - Saturday, March 31st @ 12:30 GMT Current Odds - Crystal Palace 13/2, Draw 7/2, Liverpool 2/5 Form Crystal Palace Form Before their 2-0 win at Huddersfield, Crystal Palace had gone seven games without tasting victory, losing in five of those matches.

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 …
The Best 2/3rds of a Liverpool Team in Years

The Best 2/3rds of a Liverpool Team in Years

“And it’s Liiiiiiiivvvv-errr-pool Liverpool FC We’re by far the greatest two thirds of a team The world has ever seen.” Well, they had me fooled. As the hours passed and Sky reporters told us about how they’d spoken to ‘sources close to the club’ while standing outside car parks, I honestly believed there would be a nine foot lad in the background, creeping in through the Melwood gates, holding an expensive looking pen. Come 10.30pm I was beginning to fear …
Why Liverpool are proving me wrong this summer

Why Liverpool are proving me wrong this summer

As Liverpool swept Middlesbrough aside on the final day of the season, I was filled with optimism. Let the fun begin, I thought We had Klopp, Champions League football and reportedly a rather large pot of gold to splurge on some much-needed transfers. Most importantly, we'd experienced sensible - logical - progression. We'd moved from a season containing cup runs and an eighth placed finish to a season where the league mattered most, and we moved up to fourth. We …
Liverpool's Uncharted August

Liverpool's Uncharted August

Early in July we all  had our favorite Liverpool writer we looked to for transfer intel, but those usually clued-in were mostly silent.  Into the void stepped a new batch of ITK’s with exotic ties to unnamed “sources” from far away lands. We quietly hoped they had it right.  They didn’t. Curiously, they were all telling similar tales, that Liverpool would at least have the second of their top three targets leaning on walls and swapping stories about their Istanbul …
Joe Gomez Should Remain At Liverpool This Season

Joe Gomez Should Remain At Liverpool This Season

Joe Gomez has endured a torrid time since moving to Liverpool, suffering an untimely ACL injury just seven days into Jurgen Klopp’s tenure as manager. The 20-year-old was ruled out for the rest of the season after being forced off the pitch ten minutes into England Under-21’s game against Kazakhstan.
“Gomez came here and I met him for the first time. What a wonderful young play – tall and muscles in the right positions. From this point on it goes …
Liverpool FC: More Than Just a Football Club

Liverpool FC: More Than Just a Football Club

On Thursday afternoon, Liverpool FC's Twitter account tweeted a video of the new CEO, Peter Moore, detailing how Liverpool FC would be a proud member of Liverpool Pride: https://twitter.com/LFC/status/888042309505470464 I was not prepared for the comments that followed in response to the tweet. Similarly, the same type of comments were directed at Peter Moore, who also tweeted the same video. Initially, taken aback, I remembered that intolerance and homophobia within football are something that, even now, in 2017, is a prevalent …
Liverpool's Two Ways To Build A Squad

Liverpool's Two Ways To Build A Squad

Transfers in football often seem reasonably straightforward. Building a squad is easy - you just isolate areas in your squad where you need another player, either because you’re a player short or because your strongest player in that area is a weak link in the squad. Then... you buy a suitable player. But over the last few years, building a genuine squad has proved problematic for Liverpool. Partly because they’ve bought poorly, partly because there was a lot of deadwood …
