Why Divock Origi still has a Part to Play

Why Divock Origi still has a Part to Play

As Liverpool descend into the usual frenzy of rumours, speculation and leaning on a wall at Melwood (a trend that is worryingly scarce in the Reds’ transfer announcements these days), much has been made of their lack of reserve firepower; a situation amplified by the contract extension given to Rhian Brewster. Indeed, the news arrived alongside a clamour of “Give the kid a chance” with supporters wanting the next impromptu wonder-talent to make his mark on the Premier League. Even …
Three Young Strikers Battle for Klopp's Attention

Three Young Strikers Battle for Klopp's Attention

Three young forwards. One hoping for a second chance. One trying to hang on to his first. And, one still trying to break into the first team. DIVOCK ORIGI Did you ever go away, maybe for a summer holiday or a study abroad and upon your return, instead of getting that expected moment of passion from your significant other, you got that look that says, things have changed? Yeah, me neither, but if it had, I have to assume Divock …
LFC 2017/2018 Player Ratings - Part 2

LFC 2017/2018 Player Ratings - Part 2

After rating the defence, now it's time for midfield and attack. Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain - Average Post-match Rating 6.63, Writers' Season Rating 7.5 The Ox had a slow start to his Liverpool career, appearing mainly as a substitute in the begging of the season. He grew to be our best midfielder as the season progressed before being sidelined by an injury sustained against Roma. His banger against Man City will be on the highlight reel for years. The injury also casts …
Liverpool's Premier League Lineups - a Stats Analysis: Part 2

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 …
Liverpool's Premier League Lineups - A Stats Analysis: Part 1

Liverpool's Premier League Lineups - A Stats Analysis: Part 1

The Premier League season is over. Man City dominated the season like no club has done in recent (and not so recent) times. For Liverpool, the campaign was relatively successful with the team managing to qualify for the Champions League for the second straight time - something that hasn't happened since a certain Spaniard was at the helm of the club. The Reds conceded fewer than 40 goals for the first since 2010. And Mo Salah won every possible award …
Could Kiev Be A Shot In The Arm For Confident Reds?

Could Kiev Be A Shot In The Arm For Confident Reds?

Confidence is a funny thing. Just look at Dominic Solanke for example. Having struggled in front of goal all season, he took his goal against Brighton on the final day of the season like a world class striker, having played himself into a bit of form with some excellent play in the preceding 51 minutes. Similarly, look at how Christian Benteke has been struggling relentlessly at Crystal Palace. Benteke is clearly not a bad striker, having scored 66 Premier League …
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. Daniel Sturridge had been brought in from Chelsea four years earlier …
Liverpool's European Hangover - Statistical Analysis

Liverpool's European Hangover - Statistical Analysis

The Reds are marching on Kiev! What a week, what an achievement! Jurgen Klopp managed to reach his second European final with Liverpool in his second European campaign. Hopefully this time he takes the team a step further than the last time around. The German is yet to lose at Anfield in Europe - a truly remarkable run. With all the excitement surrounding our success in the Champions League, it's easy to dismiss the lack of such domestically. Ahead of …

The Details Venue - Anfield, Liverpool Referee - Andre Marriner Date & Time - Saturday, April 28th @ 12:30 GMT Current Odds - Liverpool 1/4, Draw 5/1, Stoke 9/1 Form Liverpool Form Liverpool's crazy season continues. Roma were put to the sword on Tuesday night at Anfield and if not for a lapse in concentration during the final ten minutes then we would be all but through to another Champions League final. Still, we should be, as Roma will struggle to keep Liverpool out …
Everton Draw Exposes Liverpool's Lack of Attacking Depth

Everton Draw Exposes Liverpool's Lack of Attacking Depth

It doesn’t take a rocket scientist to point out that Dom Solanke and Danny Ings are not feasible replacements for Bobby Firmino and Mo Salah. And certainly, this observation has been met with choruses of sarcastic comments, both from within the Liverpool fandom and from wider football circles. But it’s nevertheless worth looking at, especially in comparison to Liverpool’s Champions League quarter-final opponents. Whilst Liverpool rested Robertson, Alexander-Arnold, Salah, Firmino and Oxlade-Chamberlain against Everton, Man City allowed Walker, Laporte, De …
