Liverpool's Striking Options: Two And A Half Men

Liverpool's Striking Options: Two And A Half Men

Well, that was more like it. Following the horrors of West Brom and the costly idiocy of the officials in the Tottenham game, Liverpool went to Southampton and dispelled the myth that, following the numerous goalless encounters of last season, they have become our bogey team. Virgil van Dijk was booed throughout and Dejan Lovren endured much of the same when he came on as an 89th-minute substitute – an act of such needle and piss-taking from Jurgen that he …

Are We Fully Appreciating Klopp's Record Against Rivals?

What has been the main narrative at Liverpool since Jurgen Klopp took charge back in October 2015? They can't beat the lesser sides. This has undoubtedly been a major issue, and one of the main reasons why a title challenge evaporated in such alarming fashion last season.

High-class  pomp has been decimated by working-class passion as the Moneyball-marauding FSG out-bought City's billions in all areas. On sponsors alone, Liverpool's Subway, Gatorade and Dunkin' Donuts deals dwarf against the likes of City's Nike, Aabar and Etihad Airlines. Put this against a backdrop of City's £150-million-spend in summer 2015 alone and Liverpool's victory was more than a football match: it was a …
