Where To Now For Klopp And Liverpool?

Where To Now For Klopp And Liverpool?

Normally, Latest News is your one-stop-shop for positivity and hopeful analysis of the efforts of Liverpool Football Club. This morning, however, in the immediate wake of what was a fairly limp and apathetic capitulation to an average Southampton side, there is little of a constructive nature to be said. It was a horror show of possession-based impotence. Exactly what the hell has become of this Liverpool team? Is there a quiet detachment in the manager's sideline demeanour in recent weeks? Does …

Observations from Liverpool's Defeat to Southampton

Liverpool's horrid start to 2017 continued with yet another defeat. The Reds have now won just one of their seven matches since the turn of the year, missing out on a return to Wembley after a frustrating night against a weakened Southampton at Anfield. The visitors were without the injured Virgil Van Dijk and started 22-year-old Jack Stephens alongside Maya Yoshida. It should have been like lambs to the slaughter for the likes of Firmino, Coutinho and Sturridge, but the …
Can Origi And Liverpool Reach Wembley?

Can Origi And Liverpool Reach Wembley?

Trophies and Liverpool FC used to be like television's Ant and Dec - you never saw one without the other. In recent years, however, in order for this somewhat strained analogy to work, the two Geordie chuckle goblins would have to be tragically separated in the jungle because the Anfield club is no longer synonymous with silverware. As a wee Irish tyke, Latest News was spoiled by a succession of outrageously greedy Reds sides who gathered cups in May as though they …
Can Klopp & Liverpool Turn The Season Around?

Can Klopp & Liverpool Turn The Season Around?

Nobody likes a crisis meeting. The clue, you see, is in the name. The trepidation and angst before, the recriminations during and the fallout after such gatherings, all combine to make the experience pretty unpleasant. However, quite often that very unpleasantness is absolutely necessary. The nettle must be grasped, the bull grabbed by the horns, the hackneyed metaphor lazily invoked. One imagines the nettle-grasping that followed Liverpool's loss to Swansea left a lot of the team with reddened palms. The result …

Manchester United v Liverpool Preview - Key Battles

It was a far from ideal way to warm up for a trip to Old Trafford as Liverpool put on one of their worst displays under Jurgen Klopp in the 1-0 semifinal first-leg loss in the EFL Cup at Southampton. Liverpool are very lucky to still be in that tie, but now the focus should switch to the Premier League and to their fierce rivals. United are on a fantastic run of form - they have won eight games in …
Karius: We Can Turn It Around

Karius: We Can Turn It Around

Instagram enthusiast Dejan Lovren took to his preferred social media platform to wish Emre Can a happy 23rd birthday today. For once, the Croat was not driving at the same time and his heartfelt sentiment was accompanied by the inevitable selfie with the German. "Happy birthday, my brother," Lovren gushed. "Think that you're a top player in my eyes." Without doubt, the post will have enraged the angry ants that swarm Liverpool fan forums looking for opportunities to be outraged, but for this writer …
Klopp: Reds Will Strike Back

Klopp: Reds Will Strike Back

"We will strike back, we will be a different team, a different side, everything will be different at Anfield. So, for us, it's still possible to go to Wembley, and that's the target." Jürgen Klopp
On balance, it felt like the worst 90 minutes of Jürgen Klopp's time at the Anfield helm. Obviously, the pain of witnessing the impotent, and often incompetent, staggering about of many of our established stars was exacerbated by having the unfolding shambles bathed in the greenish yellow …
Observations from Liverpool's Disappointing Defeat at Southampton

Observations from Liverpool's Disappointing Defeat at Southampton

A defeat in a semi-final isn't the best way to warm up for a trip to Old Trafford. Want to know what's worse though? A poor performance just a few days before travelling to a United side who can be described as rampant after nine consecutive wins. Klopp named a strong side but it just didn't click for a variety of reasons. That performance, coupled with the fact James Pearce hinted at no January business, will just exacerbate things and …
Lallana Left The Comfort Zone

Lallana Left The Comfort Zone

I've always been fascinated by comfort zones. It's probably a lot to do with my ongoing self-doubt. I know they get a bad press but I'm fascinated as to the kind of calm and ease that residing in a zone of comfort would bring. Imagine not questioning oneself endlessly or simply being content with oneself, warts and all. Isn't that the kind of zen self-acceptance we're all supposed to aspire to? Don't the life-coaching gurus preach such blissed out forbearance of …
