Liverpool v Stoke City Preview: Key Battles

For the first time in six years Liverpool don't play a game on Boxing Day. In 2010 it was only because bad weather didn't allow a game at Blackpool, that the Reds not play on 26th December. But this time the revenue and the money from television has given the fixtures a spin, and the tradition of all ten teams playing on Boxing Day has been discontinued. Instead, the Reds welcome Stoke City to Anfield on the 27th, in the first of …
Klopp's 2016/17 Entertainers: A Joyous Time To Support Liverpool

Klopp's 2016/17 Entertainers: A Joyous Time To Support Liverpool

There was a point during Tuesday’s routine 3-0 win over Derby County when I realised I was enjoying watching Liverpool more than I can almost ever remember. Some of the football was breathtaking at times, with the speed, movement and imagination in the Reds’ play something to behold. Whether it be Philippe Coutinho’s quick feet, Roberto Firmino’s effortless elegance or simply the slick efficiency of Nathaniel Clyne, I was riveted. I was going to bang on about Loris Karius’ handsomeness …
Is it time to give Philippe Coutinho more responsibility?

Is it time to give Philippe Coutinho more responsibility?

Should Liverpool give Philippe Coutinho a vice-captaincy role? Jurgen Klopp's appointment was the catalyst for evolution of this current Liverpool squad. From meek, mild mannered pushovers with a brittle mentality to what we as supporters now get to watch on a regular basis; a ravenous squad with an appetite for winning who never actually know then they're defeated. It's been quite the transformation. There's been growth throughout, not just as a team on the whole but on an individual level. …

Why Jon Flanagan is the Most Important Piece of Klopp's Liverpool Jigsaw

When Stoke were welcomed to Anfield for the League Cup second leg clash last week the resulting game from a Liverpool perspective could only be described as drab and disjointed. The performance of the team lacked any of the fluid, free flowing football that rears its head every so often but seems to have become an ever more rare sight when the reds take to the pitch of late. Instead, the lads had to grind out what resulted in a …

Semi-Final Win Points to More Pressing Issues for Klopp

Liverpool players, former stars and fans worldwide were ecstatic following the Reds’ progression to the League Cup Final last night. It’s a chance of silverware for Klopp’s men, something that has long been missing at Anfield. Jurgen Klopp, though, will be far from happy with last night’s showing. It was one of the worst Liverpool performances I have seen in a long time, with the Reds registering just two shots on target during the entire game. In the semi-final of …
