Here's To You Roberto Firmino

Here's To You Roberto Firmino

With Saturday marking Roberto Firmino's two year anniversary at the club, now is the perfect time to assess how the Brazilian has fared for Liverpool since his arrival. Roberto Firmino signed for Liverpool on the 24th June 2015 from 1899 Hoffenheim, in a fee around £29m. Firmino had enjoyed categorical success in Germany - in the 2013/14 Bundesliga season he was the joint top scorer and was named the Breakthrough Player of the Season. He had become an instant fans’ …
Does Coutinho Belong in the Midfield?

Does Coutinho Belong in the Midfield?

Since the turn of the New Year, Liverpool’s form has dipped – there can be no doubting that. Teams seemed to have picked up on Jürgen Klopp’s kryptonite: a low block, without any ambition to attack, frustrating and uncompromising in defensive stature. Palace, Hull, Swansea, Leicester; the reminders don’t need to be stated. What does, is the alarming form of the golden (adopted) son of the Red half of Merseyside; one who embodies the closest thing to a “superstar” that …
Rating Liverpool Players' Consistency in 2016-17 - PART TWO

Rating Liverpool Players' Consistency in 2016-17 - PART TWO

There has been plenty of talk of Liverpool's inconsistencies throughout the 2016-17 campaign. After a hugely impressive start to the season, it's been another disappointing year and what had the potential to be a successful campaign, has turned into an unpredictable final few months. Liverpool have the best success record against teams in the top six and they picked up a number of commanding victories against their rivals at the beginning of the season. Wins against Arsenal and Everton on …
Table-Gazing: Where Will Liverpool Finish?

Table-Gazing: Where Will Liverpool Finish?

Sometimes, the worst thing you can do is look at the league table. The very worst. In fact, because I care about you, lovely reader, don't look at the league table. This morning, unnaturally early, Latest News gave what was supposed to be a brief, fact-checking glance at the Barclay's Premier standing of the Redmen. There was a column to be written and it's only polite to be passably informed before wittering away at you. Fifteen angst-ridden minutes later, a …
Liverpool lack imagination to overcome Hull City

Liverpool lack imagination to overcome Hull City

It is fair to say that Liverpool have been a disappointment at the start of 2017. They have been knocked out of both domestic cups with losses to Wolves in the FA Cup and Southampton in the EFL Cup. Along with the poor form in the cup Liverpool have yet to win a league match this year with draws against Manchester United, Sunderland and Chelsea and a loss to Swansea City. Prior to the turn of the year there was …
Liverpool: 2017. Don't Give Up

Liverpool: 2017. Don't Give Up

Well, this is not good. Good is the thing it is not. On a good/bad ratio the numbers are stacked in the latter camp. The opening seven games of 2017 have seen the Reds win one, draw three and lose three. Only at Home Park did Liverpool leave the pitch a goal in credit and that was with a predominantly second string in a pretty average game. We’re just not playing well what with the first team slowing down and …
Liverpool's Defensive failures against Swansea can't be repeated

Liverpool's Defensive failures against Swansea can't be repeated

“Nearly everything around this goal was wrong(the Swansea winner), “It started with a long ball, which should not have been a surprise as they played many of them. Our reaction was not good, we strolled back, we had just scored to make it 2-2 and we couldn’t switch back into a defensive mode, “We were too passive. The defending for all three goals was not good enough.” The defeat to Swansea was hard to stomach. Liverpool are frightening. Frighteningly good …

Observations from Liverpool's loss at home to Swansea

Observations from Liverpool's loss at home to Swansea

Swansea, bottom of the Premier League at kick-off, rocked up at Anfield, where we have been unbeaten at all season, and took all three points. Those aren't the words I expected to be writing a few hours ago, and especially not after seeing the line-up. Philippe Coutinho returned and Roberto Firmino was restored to a role he had flourished in earlier this season. The destructive duo were up against a team who had conceded 49 goals already. It was supposed …
