Red Rant: We Don't Need No VVD

Red Rant: We Don't Need No VVD

I’m all for the unsubstantiated transfer rumour. Football itself and certainly Twitter wouldn’t be the same without them. The incremental steps, when Liverpool is rumoured to be monitoring a player, continuing to monitor, then comes the inquiring, then considering a bid, then surprise competition comes in from a rival club, and on and on… it’s all part of the romance, right? But for clubs at the level of Liverpool the rule has to be that the romance period can only …
Salah Showing Why We Can't Settle for Second Best

Salah Showing Why We Can't Settle for Second Best

Another game another Salah masterclass, the Egyptian has been the signing of the season by far and his two goals against the Saints puts him at the top of the Premier League goal scoring charts ahead of the likes of Aguero, Morata and Kane. There was a wave of apprehension surrounding the £35 million deal; his form in Italy was eye catching but he had failed to set the Premier League alight the first time around. Klopp was clearly a …
Liverpool 3 - 0 Southampton: Saints put to the Sword at Anfield

Liverpool 3 - 0 Southampton: Saints put to the Sword at Anfield

The Details Date: 18/11/2017 Venue: Anfield, Liverpool Background Premier League football returned today after the final international break of the year. Liverpool welcomed Southampton to Anfield. The Reds failed to score against the Saints in four meetings last season and would be hoping to put things right today. Joel Matip missed out through injury but Coutinho, Henderson and Mané were all fully recovered and made the starting eleven. Shane Long replaced Gabbiadini as the lone striker for Southampton while Lemina was still out …
Liverpool v Southampton Preview - Key Battles

Liverpool v Southampton Preview - Key Battles

Let's rejoice! There is no international football for four months. And Virgil van Dijk is coming to Anfield! Just not the kind of Anfield visit we'd have hoped for. The Reds host Southampton on Saturday and will look to pile the pressure on former assistant manager Mauricio Pellegrino, as Jurgen Klopp looks for momentum heading into the busiest period of the season. The next two weeks are a defining part of the season, with the Premier League game against Chelsea …
Liverpool v Southampton - Saints won't preach at Anfield

Liverpool v Southampton - Saints won't preach at Anfield

The Details Venue - Anfield, Liverpool Referee - Mike Jones Date & Time - Saturday, November 18th @ 15:00 BST Current Odds - Liverpool 4/11, Draw 19/5, Southampton 7/1 Form Liverpool Form Liverpool, thankfully, seem to be getting over their September and early-October nightmare and, Spurs result aside, have been returning to winning ways. The Reds have an 80% win record in their last five games a very impressive xG/xA record over that period, also (see table below). Much of this season has …
The Reds Are Missing Clyne, not Virgil van Dijk

The Reds Are Missing Clyne, not Virgil van Dijk

I was watching the Liverpool match on television yesterday. Philippe Coutinho had just scored a screamer and I started jumping around. For the first time this month, we had taken the lead in a match. Unfortunately, I had to run some urgent chores for 20 minutes. When I returned, I had this eerie feeling that they would have equalised. And as predicted, the scoreline at halftime read 1-1. Watching the replay made me sick, the same type of soft sloppy …
Why FSG and Klopp Must Go...

Why FSG and Klopp Must Go...

Sorry, I didn't quite have space to write my full title: Why FSG and Klopp Must Go On as Before. Now that I have your attention, I'm going to take you back a short while. On the morning of August 31st, 'Liverpool Twitter' was a happy place: Liverpool were still in for Lemar and Van Dijk. Yet, predictably, the FSG Out group were circling, ready to pounce, looking for a slip-up, to prove their own misguided hypotheses right, in their …
Virgil Van Dijk - The Fake News Saga

Virgil Van Dijk - The Fake News Saga

Ok Reds, I can't take it any more. Three months of shallow and brainless analysis of the Virgil Van Dijk transfer saga and I've had enough. The information in the public domain simply doesn't make sense. There is no way Klopp chooses to enter this season with the present choice of centre-backs, does he? At least that is something we can all agree on. So what's up? What is the truth behind the headlines? Well the time has come for …
Does Klopp Want To Prove A Point Or Win Trophies?

Does Klopp Want To Prove A Point Or Win Trophies?

Heavy Metal. Sometimes it gives you an adrenaline rush. Sometimes it blows your ear-drums out. Heavy Metal Football. Most of the time it has been great. Certainly entertaining. Competitive enough to get very close to silverware and has returned us to the Champions League. Against Manchester City the Reds came out with a formation made up of two centre-backs, one notoriously attack-minded full-back, another who is seen as a future attacking midfielder, and six other outfield players who were either …
Pressure on Joe Gomez to Shine at Centre-Back

Pressure on Joe Gomez to Shine at Centre-Back

Every Liverpool supporter has their own take on the Reds’ summer transfer window, with some pleased with the business done and others left disillusioned about missing out on certain key targets. Whatever your stance, one thing that seems unforgivable is not bringing in at least one new centre-back, with a move for Virgil van Dijk fizzling out in rather pathetic fashion. It has been a problem for so long now, and with other areas of the pitch looking so strong, …
