Post Match RAW: BARE MINIMUM

Post Match RAW: BARE MINIMUM

Jürgen Klopp’s Reds could have all but ensured Champions League qualification against the rock-bottom team in the Premier League but the old spectre of defensive frailty returned to result in the concession of two points from a position of having a two-goal lead on the 70-minute mark. Trev Downey, Hari Sethi and Dave Hendrick wonder if this was a slip back into the old insecurities for Liverpool or, rather, a slight bump in the road to Champions League progression after the manager changed 3 of the back four with a view to Tuesday’s monumental semi-final first-leg against Roma …

Molby On The Spot - MESSAGE IN THE PASS

Molby On The Spot - MESSAGE IN THE PASS

This week’s Molby On The Spot is a very lively chat between Trev Downey and the Great Dane - Reds legend, Jan Molby - about the recent victory over Bournemouth, the weekend match away at West Brom and the season-defining Champions League semi-final against Roma. There’s some great insight from Jan about the performances of the individual players, the thought processes in the run up to a massive match and the tactics that might be employed by both The Reds and their opponents. As ever, there are anecdotes and tangents and, this week, a lovely masterclass on the art of the pass …

Do Liverpool Still Need to Replace Phil Coutinho?

Do Liverpool Still Need to Replace Phil Coutinho?

Euphoria, that’s the feeling washing over most of the Liverpool supporter-sphere at the moment. Their front three are reaching meteoric heights, and their devastating influence on games has become a staple of both the Premier League and Champions League. Teams now fear Liverpool, not simply because of the goalscoring prowess, but also the knowledge that it is now harder to breach what used to be a shaky back-line. Liverpool bought the most expensive defender in world football to help fix …
Observations as Liverpool Stutter Against The Baggies

Observations as Liverpool Stutter Against The Baggies

It all seemed to be going so well for Liverpool. A much-changed side spearheaded by Danny Ings took an early lead before a second-half strike from Mohamed Salah put the away side two goals to the good. Three points heading to Merseyside and plenty of rested legs ahead of far more important games. No-one, not even the most optimistic of West Brom fans would've predicted the last fifteen minutes of the game. From 2-0 down, the home side fought back …
West Brom 2-2 Liverpool: What Went Wrong?

West Brom 2-2 Liverpool: What Went Wrong?

With 18 minutes remaining, Liverpool enjoyed a comfortable 2-0 lead against bottom club West Brom and the points were all but in the bag. The travelling supporters were in fine voice in the Midlands sunshine, revelling in Mohamed Salah's latest strike. By full time, West Brom had somehow hauled it back to 2-2 and the Reds were forced to settle for a solitary point when three would virtually have sealed the top-four spot they had been chasing all season. Promptly, …

Slack Reds Pegged Back In Share Of Spoils Against WBA

Liverpool went to the Hawthorns and were pegged back by the basement team West Bromwich Albion, as the game ended in a 2-2 draw. Danny Ings and Mo Salah gave the Reds a comfortable 2-0 lead, but goals from Jake Livermore and Solomon Rondon gave Jurgen Klopp's boys a rude reality check. Starting XIs West Bromwich Albion: Ben Foster, Allan Nyom, Craig Dawson, Ahmed Hegazi, Kieran Gibbs, Jake Livermore, Chris Brunt, Matt Phillips, James McClean, Solomon Rondon, Jay Rodriguez Liverpool: …
Liverpool Player Ratings From Hawthorns Holiday

Liverpool Player Ratings From Hawthorns Holiday

Liverpool refused to get out of second gear as they shared the points with West Bromwich Albion on Saturday. With AS Roma and the Champions League firmly on their minds, the Reds threw away a two-goal lead to the pretty much-relegated side, but when there's little to play for and the referee is giving free-kicks against you when your player is punched, who's fussed? Hereeeeeee's your ratings. Nice to see you, Albie Loris Karius (6): Was quite meh on the …
Roberto Firmino: The Most Underrated Player In The Premier League?

Roberto Firmino: The Most Underrated Player In The Premier League?

Liverpool have played home to some illustrious talents over the years: Ian Rush, Kenny Dalglish, Robbie Fowler, Steven Gerrard and Luis Suarez are names that roll straight off the tongue while other far more under-appreciated stars lie in wait. Dirk Kuyt was very much of that ilk. Far from the most technically gifted player at the club, the Dutchman was always up for the big occasion, scoring the winning penalty in the Champions League semi-final against Chelsea back in 2007 …
Why Rúben Neves Would Be Liverpool's Midfield Conductor

Why Rúben Neves Would Be Liverpool's Midfield Conductor

There will always be archetypes that footballers fit into. Creators, destroyers, poachers, leaders, midfield maestros. That “maestro” trope will be overused, as is the tendency of footballing media. It’s natural to categorise, but what exactly does that trope mean? Maestro? Is he a magic-wielding passer of the ball? Is he tricky with his feet, guiding defenders one way while fully intending to go the other? Does he possess trickery or guile? Is he selfish or will he play others in? …
Will Mo Salah End the Messi & Ronaldo Ballon d’Or Stranglehold?

Will Mo Salah End the Messi & Ronaldo Ballon d’Or Stranglehold?

As Mo Salah sent that outrageous looping header into the Bournemouth net last weekend, you were left stunned by yet another piece of individual genius from the Egyptian King. It also clocked up a notable milestone for the 25-year-old, who took his incredible goal tally to 40 for the season, despite not even being an out-and-out striker. Only Ian Rush and Roger Hunt have achieved that feat in the past, which sums up how prolific he has been. Luis Suarez …

Liverpool head out to face bottom dweller who has recently changed managers. Liverpool head home having improbably dropped points and all positive vibes go out the window. Surely we’re now performing so well that this type of almost predictable disappointment is no longer possible. West Brom has rescued 4 points from their last two matches, and for all of that hard work against Swansea and Manchester United, they still sit effectively 3 wins from safety with four to play. Swansea …
