The life of the daily columnist is a lonely one and the comfort of your virtual presence warms the cold dying heart of Latest News just enough to brave the internet awfulness and trawl around for stories to tickle your fancy.

Observations from Liverpool's win at Plymouth

Liverpool made hard work of it but they're through to the FA Cup fourth round. A Lucas Leiva header - yes, the Brazilian scored, pick yourself up off the floor - was enough to secure a 1-0 win over Plymouth but it was by no means comfortable. The home side had chances to score and clipped the outside of the post with a great effort in the second-half. You should never be negative when you've won, because that's the important …
Klopp: We Were Better

Klopp: We Were Better

"We were the better side, played better football, had a better plan." Jürgen Klopp "We stopped them playing but they also did very well from the defensive point of view." Jose Mourinho
Everybody loves a good story, especially here at Latest News. The creation of narrative is as old as we are as a species. The past, after all, is just a story that we tell ourselves, so the same thing should work for the future, right? Well, not really. …
A Fitting Understudy - Trent Alexander-Arnold

A Fitting Understudy - Trent Alexander-Arnold

Every player remembers making their first start in the Premier League, but few get to experience such an occasion in the manner Trent Alexander-Arnold did. The lack of depth in the full back positions for Liverpool was one of the major concerns heading into the season. With James Milner filling in at the back, Alberto Moreno is one of the only natural left backs at the club and the fact that he’s hardly covered himself in glory only emphasises Liverpool’s …

Observations from Liverpool's draw against United

A draw at Old Trafford against a United side on a nine-match winning streak is never a bad thing, but I don't half feel cheated and I'm not sure whether it's a well-earned point or two dropped. Jurgen Klopp switched it up a bit and once again showed why he's one of the best tactical coaches around. The Reds went with a diamond shape and looked to clog up the pitch centrally. To an extent it worked. Beforehand many fans …
Observations from Liverpool's draw against Plymouth Argyle

Observations from Liverpool's draw against Plymouth Argyle

A disappointing 0-0 draw at home to Plymouth means the Reds have a tricky replay to contend with in amongst an already difficult month of January. It's something they could have done without but it's our own doing after not showing enough class to finish off the League Two outfit. Liverpool were utterly dominant but did nothing with the ball. They didn't even trouble the Plymouth goalkeeper. It was a glorified defence vs attack training session and there's now a …
Jurgen's Plan B Sticking To Plan A

Jurgen's Plan B Sticking To Plan A

Disclaimer- Despite the positive performance and result using our second string side against Spurs last Tuesday, I am aware that we did beat a Spurs reserve team who have an eye and a half on the Champions League and these boys will face up to tougher opponents. During Mauricio Pochettinos post-match press conference after Liverpool's EFL win over Spurs, the Spurs coach stated that Liverpool boasts one of, if not the best, squads in the League after the Liverpool reserves defeated …
Tactics - A look at Trent Alexander-Arnold's Debut for Liverpool

Tactics - A look at Trent Alexander-Arnold's Debut for Liverpool

Trent Alexander-Arnold made his competitive first-team debut for Liverpool in the win against Spurs. It's been long overdue for a player who impressed during pre-season with his fearless performances. He was expressive in his play, the way that many youngsters are when they get their chance in the first-team. It's a combination of confidence and youthful innocence, almost as though they're playing with a freedom many seasoned veterans aren't afforded. Daniel Sturridge is the man on the back pages and Divock …
Kirkby vs The World: The Battle Ahead for Liverpool's Starlets

Kirkby vs The World: The Battle Ahead for Liverpool's Starlets

Liverpool Football Club are abundant (to say the least) in talented players over at Kirkby. Toni Gomes, Bobby Adekanye, Trent Alexander-Arnold, Ben Woodburn, and Adam Philipps are just a few of the boys shining in the academy. But leaping to Melwood isn’t a walk in the park for these players. Since 2013, Liverpool have brought in the likes of Marko Grujic (18), Divock Origi (20), Lazar Markovic (20), Philippe Coutinho (20), Joe Gomez (18), Emre Can (21), and Daniel Sturridge …
