Dejan Lovren: The Buck Doesn't Stop There

Dejan Lovren: The Buck Doesn't Stop There

Sometime after 4.15pm yesterday, a collection of mumbles, conversations and downright vitriol ran around the away section at Wembley. ‘He’s got to take him off.’ ‘We’re going to get battered here. Fuck’s sake, Jurgen.’ ‘Get that useless twat off now!’ Later on some people speculated that Dejan Lovren’s was the worst performance ever given by a Liverpool player. That got me thinking. My mind flew to a John Arne Riise display at Craven Cottage years ago when I seriously wondered …

Fantasy Premier League Insight: GW9 - City Flying

With GW8 behind us, let's reflect on what transpired and MY WORD! what a game week. All the focus was on Anfield as two Juggernauts did battle; the match itself was a let down as it finished honours even. The games to follow produced some of the more unexpected results Man City once again showed us why they are pretty much nailed on for the title, smacking seven goals past Stoke City. Even with Aguero out, City assets just keep …

Liverpool Fans Need to Stay Calm

Liverpool Fans Need to Stay Calm

It's been a tough few weeks of late, with Liverpool dropping points against Newcastle, Burnley, Spartak Moscow and Sevilla whilst also getting knocked out of the League Cup by Leicester. Some fans have even started to turn on the manager. It's strange, Liverpool are only seven games into the league season and people are already writing off their chances of Champions League qualification, the season entirely, and subsequently there's talk of a club in crisis. Yet the table does not …
Picking apart Liverpool's lunchtime problem

Picking apart Liverpool's lunchtime problem

Liverpool's thrashing at the hands of Manchester City on Saturday left the Red side of Merseyside feeling sick to their stomachs. One, two, three four and five, City brought the rain - not the scattered showers - after Sadio Mane was sent for an early bath. For many, it ruined their weekend. Losing at Saturday lunch often see's Match of the Day cancelled, and the Saturday night pints are a drowning of sorrows rather than a celebration. And then you've …
Liverpool beat Arsenal by four, let the season begin!

Liverpool beat Arsenal by four, let the season begin!

Arsenal rolled over like a puppy as Liverpool produced a devastating attacking display to whack the Gunners by four on Sunday evening. Jürgen Klopp's side were improved at the back, impressive in midfield and imperious going forward. The pre-match decision to drop, rest, whatever, Simon Mignolet for Loris Karius was much talked about, but mattered little thanks to fantastic display's from those in front of the German. Joe Gomez again filled in capably for Trent Alexander-Arnold, filling in himself for …
Liverpool 3 Liverpool 3 - Attack v Defence

Liverpool 3 Liverpool 3 - Attack v Defence

Welcome to Groundhog Day. The 2017-18 season kicked off at 12.30pm on Saturday and by 12.38pm Liverpool’s defensive frailties were already on show. It was the familiar story. A corner, a near post ball, the flailing of limbs and yellow shirts whirling away in celebration. 1-0 Watford. I was yards away from that corner flag at the time and had the same view as the corner taker, Jose Holebas. I noticed that Watford had a player unmarked at the edge …
Watford 3 Liverpool 3: A Tactical Breakdown

Watford 3 Liverpool 3: A Tactical Breakdown

Completely bewildering, yet almost oxymoronically, so very familiar; Liverpool's 3-3 draw was, for the most part, a frustrating game, with a blisteringly good period of play for Liverpool sandwiched between two periods that were hard to watch. To really understand how the game progressed, and key points within it, we shall look at the goals, specific players, and positioning across the game. First, though, we're going to need some of the stats from the game to flesh out the general …
Watford 3 Liverpool 3: Player Ratings

Watford 3 Liverpool 3: Player Ratings

Liverpool returned to normalcy against a lower half team by dropping points in the dying seconds of the game. Liverpool woke up from their slumber in the second half to take the lead after trailing twice during the game. This is how the Reds fared Simon Mignolet (4.5) - An error filled performance from the stopper in the season opener. His reluctance to claim the ball for Watford's opener was baffling. His distribution continues to be a source of worry. …

Watford v Liverpool Preview - Key Battles

Finally, it is that time of the year, when Liverpool fans can finally shift their attention from Twitter to events on the pitch. The transfer window and the deals (lack of) can be the topic of discussion for another day. This Saturday, when Liverpool face Watford at Vicarage Road, the only thing on the agenda must be three points. Jurgen Klopp's Reds will be aiming for a fast start and a morale-booster ahead of the visit to Germany to face …
