Mignolet: Everyone Chips In

Mignolet: Everyone Chips In

Recently, Latest News has been succumbing to an innate desire to ramble but every so often one of Liverpool's finest has so much to say for themselves that the bulk of this column will be their words and you, dear reader, are spared the meandering nonsense and anecdotal piffle that often greets the wary click of your mouse. This morning is such an occasion, for in an interview with the Liverpool Echo, Simon Mignolet, that figure of so much fan …
EFL Cup Semi-Final Preview: Reds Look to Bounce Back

EFL Cup Semi-Final Preview: Reds Look to Bounce Back

It has not been the best start to 2017 for Jurgen Klopp's Liverpool. In the 2 games that the Reds have played, they have had two draws. The first one - a 2-2 stalemate at Sunderland - might be excusable, given that it kicked off less than 48 hours after a taxing game against Manchester City. But Sunday's goalless draw in the FA Cup against Plymouth Argyle is inexcusable. Even with the much-changed team, Liverpool should be beating Plymouth. So, …

Liverpool's Team of 2016

Liverpool's Team of 2016

It's cliche I know but a year in football is a long time. If you compared December 2015 and December 2016 they're almost unrecognisable. After the Boxing Day fixtures in 2015 Liverpool were in 8th position with 27 points and a -1 goal difference. Watford and Crystal Palace where both ahead of the Reds and Everton were just a single point behind. Going into the game against Stoke City on the 27th December Liverpool are 2nd in the league with 37 …
Loris Karius: Doomed to fail, or just a rough start?

Loris Karius: Doomed to fail, or just a rough start?

It's not talked about enough, but changing football clubs is hard. Moving to a club like Liverpool as a 23 year old and immediately taking a place in the spotlight as the starting goalkeeper is a lot more intimidating than most like to acknowledge. The most common retort to statements like this usually is along the lines of, "Well he's a professional, so he should get on with his job." This does hold some truth, but if you ask me, …
Liverpool supporters need to see the bigger picture

Liverpool supporters need to see the bigger picture

Being a Liverpool fan has never been, nor ever will be, an easy ride. The reds dominated English and indeed European Football for large portions of the 1960, 70s and 80s but, perhaps inevitably, currently find themselves languishing behind a pack of teams growing in terms of footballing credentials and, naturally, wealth. Over a decade and three managers since Liverpool last won a major trophy, Jurgen Klopp’s reds are, once again, gearing up for an assault on England’s most desirable …
Loris Karius - Undisputed Liverpool Number 1?

Loris Karius - Undisputed Liverpool Number 1?

The Liverpool fanbase is littered with inconsistencies. People go from really disliking a player to raving about him in a matter of weeks. A player can go from being considered one of the best at the club to not being rated because they've left the club. You can adore one player so excuse everything he does while chastising a player you dislike for doing exactly the same thing. We're fickle, we're tribal and we're reactionary. It makes for some enjoyable/heated …
Could Klopp use Emre Can in a Centre-Back Role?

Could Klopp use Emre Can in a Centre-Back Role?

Jurgen Klopp has shown just how ruthless he can be this season with squad selection when he dropped Belgian 'keeper Simon Mignolet in favour of Loris Karius for the match against Hull City. While the general consensus seemed to be Mignolet was on borrowed time after a series of errors last season and he was only starting this season because of the injury Karius picked up in pre-season it was still a bit of a 'wow' moment when the team …
Why the Simon Mignolet era is likely to end soon

Why the Simon Mignolet era is likely to end soon

On a weekend where more than a few headlines were devoted to Manchester City’s new goalkeeper Claudio Bravo and his struggles in the derby at Old Trafford, 34 miles down the road his (presumably outgoing) counterpart at Liverpool, Simon Mignolet, provided an expert, if subtle, lesson on why Pep Guardiola’s decision to allow Joe Hart out on loan to Torino was the correct one, a lesson so timely and apt that not even the England number one’s mistake against Atalanta …
