Booing and Fan Hypocrisy

Booing and Fan Hypocrisy

Football fans are hypocrites. Downright hypocrites. Yes, you! I’m talking about you. Specifically you. You more than most. Not me though. I’m pure as the driven snow. What has driven me to this tirade? It’s this. On Sunday afternoon, in the hammering rain of the Etihad, Liverpool’s left-back was booed. People actually contorted their faces and made a sound they probably haven’t used since the last time they watched a pantomime. His crime? Touching the ball. Booed. Just think about …

Is Magnificent Mane One Of Liverpool’s Signings Of The Decade?

With many great Liverpool players, there are often moments that come along that make you realise how special they are. With Steven Gerrard, it was his thunderbolt against Man United at Anfield.

Where are the Reinforcements Jurgen?

At the end of December, many fans saw Liverpool's current position as a golden opportunity - Liverpool could attack on three fronts, in both cups and in the league; Matip and Coutinho were expected to return to the team shortly, and Mané's departure to the AFCON was seen as something that could be coped with either internally, or through buying another player. Now, here we are, at the very end of the January transfer window, without a single addition to a …

Liverpool 1 Manchester City 0 - Player Ratings

Liverpool's 1-0 victory over Manchester City was a big step in their title bid, confirming the progress they have made this season. Simon Mignolet - 7 Did well when called upon and kept Liverpool ticking with his distribution. Not much to complain about since he took up the reigns from Karius. Nathaniel Clyne - 7 Clyne is perhaps one of the most underrated members of the squad. He has made a real difference down the right-hand side and did so against …

Daniel Sturridge and Media Manipulation

Daniel Sturridge and Media Manipulation

Daniel Sturridge is one of the elite forwards in Europe. That's not an opinion, that's an actual fact. Yet if you were to scan social media or turn on one of the sports channels people go on as if it's beyond belief he's getting into the England XI ahead of the likes of Harry Kane, Jamie Vardy and Marcus Rashford. If all four were firing then maybe, just maybe, there would be something to talk about as in who fits the …

Sadio Mane or Raheem Sterling? Statistical Observations

Sadio Mane or Raheem Sterling? Statistical Observations

Just this past Monday, Dominic King of the Mail Online, produced an article stating how Manchester United nullified the effectiveness of Liverpool’s Sadio Mane, during the recent stalemate at Anfield. Where he might have been correct in this statement, it was clear to see that Jose Mourinho’s significant attention towards the Senegalese forward, in itself harboured the biggest compliment for Mane. ‘Half spaces’ is what Jurgen Klopp defines as space on a pitch, where defenders do not know whether to …
