Liverpool Struggling Right Now - But Klopp's Troops Will Bounce Back Stronger

Liverpool Struggling Right Now - But Klopp's Troops Will Bounce Back Stronger

2017 just hasn’t been Liverpool’s year, has it? Three wins in 13 games since New Year has all but ended their chances of securing silverware this season - something that looked like an absolute certainty at one stage of the campaign. The Reds were eliminated from the two domestic cup competitions in January and Jurgen Klopp’s side failed to inspire confidence in Sadio Mane’s absence. Since the Senegal striker returned from international duty at the Africa Cup of Nations, the Reds have …
Are Liverpool really THAT bad against the Premier League’s weaker teams?

Are Liverpool really THAT bad against the Premier League’s weaker teams?

Make no bones about it, Liverpool are far better against their top-four rivals than those in the bottom-half of the Premier League. The statistics show that, and we can see with our own eyes that that is the case. The Reds have undoubtedly been poor when a number of so-called lesser teams have stood before them this season, which has proved incredibly frustrating, especially when the title looked achievable at one point. Too often for opposing managers, it has been …
Wijnaldum A Better Fit For Liverpool Than Emre Can

Wijnaldum A Better Fit For Liverpool Than Emre Can

After a positive 1-1 draw with runaway leaders Chelsea, many thought Liverpool had turned a corner, putting their dismal January form behind them to kick on and fight for a top four spot. However, the predictability with which Liverpool slumped to a 2-0 defeat against Hull City marked a new low for Jurgen Klopp’s side, who are in serious risk of their season fizzling out into nothing. Much of the pre-match talk was about the return of Adam Lallana, Sadio …
Liverpool must finish in the top four - but will it improve transfer activity?

Liverpool must finish in the top four - but will it improve transfer activity?

Liverpool's ultimate aim for the 2016-17 season must be to finish in the top four and secure a place in the Champions League. All of the top teams in the Premier League are fighting to play in Europe but will Liverpool's transfer activity really benefit from competing in the elite competition? Jurgen Klopp came under criticism in January due to Liverpool's lack of activity - and rightly so. Whether or not it was because he was unwilling to buy or …
Four Attacking Points for a Top Four Finish For Liverpool

Four Attacking Points for a Top Four Finish For Liverpool

It’s early days in the six year tenure of Jürgen Klopp and there’s a general state of mixed emotions within the Liverpool fanbase - a mix of quiet confidence and an itch for reaching another level of talent in the team. With the current skill-set of the Liverpool squad that Klopp has created up til now, there is great validation to flooding the midfield with dynamic, attack-minded players that can understand and execute on his vertical, counter-pressing style of play. …
Can the Attack Fire Liverpool into the Top 4?

Can the Attack Fire Liverpool into the Top 4?

The Liverpool Echo, more specifically James Pearce, recently published an article informing Liverpool fans that Jurgen Klopp no longer had an interest in Bayern Munich's Mario Gotze and he was happy with his attacking options moving forward into the new season. Given the Reds were looking to bring in Monaco's Kylian Mbappe and Rennes' Ousmane Dembele it does strike me as odd that after only one attacking signing coming in so far this Summer in Sadio Mane, and with Jordon …
Is It Time To Talk Top Four, Again?

Is It Time To Talk Top Four, Again?

Boom. Boss, tha. Sehr Gut. Etc. That was alright, wasn’t it? A 4-0 win over the Ev, after a 4-3 win against Dortmund. It’s all glossed over a lovely Sunday afternoon kick around against Stoke, as we stuck yet another four goals past the Potters – a team Liverpool have struggled against ever since Tony Pulis and his rugby players made their way into the Premier League. We’re on a real roll at the moment, which kind of suits our …
Top 4? It's the hope that kills you!

Top 4? It's the hope that kills you!

Top 4? It's the hope that kills you! I watched something happen to this Liverpool team over the past week. They went to Wembley and after a slow start and falling behind, ended up running Manchester City down to the wire. But sadly, it was not to be. The Liverpool performance in the Final, whilst better, was still some way short of the lofty expectations that Liverpool supporters of my age group were so used to identifying with, but it …
Klopp Effect - The Power Of Positivity

Klopp Effect - The Power Of Positivity

The Shackles are off Ladies and Gentlemen; our young guns are flying again! Jurgen Klopp may have been right in putting the brakes on expectation, but how can you not be excited by what is unfolding before our very eyes? 1-6 at St Marys, 1-4 at the Etihad and 1-3 at Stamford Bridge are the kind of results dreams that send fans into dreamland. Even the most optimistic of fans would never have believed we would have come away with …
Are Liverpool Really

Are Liverpool Really "Becoming Tottenham"?

Immediately following the announcement of the dismissal of Brendan Rodgers, Jamie Carragher remarked,
"Liverpool are becoming Tottenham, they think they're a big club but the real big clubs are not too worried about them - who they buy, what they're going to do - that's the situation as it's become for Liverpool, even when I was there at the end."
No doubt a hurtful statement for the Liverpool faithful, but how much truth is there is Carragher's assessment of the club, …
