Liverpool Make World-Class Stars

Liverpool Make World-Class Stars

Jamie Carragher is right, Liverpool don’t tend to buy superstars. Speaking after the 1-0 win over Spurs, the former Reds centre-back heaped praise on Jurgen Klopp and the recruitment team at Anfield.  "It's not that Liverpool are just buying players with this special ability that nobody else sees these players," Carragher told Sky Sports. "[Andy] Robertson came from Hull City, [Gini] Wijnaldum was relegated with Newcastle United, Mohamed Salah had been at Chelsea, Sadio Mane had been in the Premier …

Does Robertson Need To Rein It In?

Something changed the night Liverpool lost to Real Madrid in the 2018 Champions League final. At that point, the Reds were still seen as plucky underdogs - a team who played fantastic football and were as entertaining as anyone, both for good and bad. Unless you were a rival supporter, they were easy to like, and it will have been hard not to feel some level of sympathy for them after their nightmare in Kiev. That defeat hurt and Liverpool …

Tottenham Hotspur 0-1 Liverpool: Who Was Man of the Match?

Debunking the Fabinho myth

Debunking the Fabinho myth

A lot has changed for Liverpool over recent seasons. In the past, when a star name was ruled out through injury fans would count down the days until his return. Now, however, talk turns to whether or not they even get back into the team upon their recovery. When Fabinho hobbled off against Napoli, fans feared the Reds would struggle without him. For the first part of the 2019/20 campaign, a case could be made that the former Monaco man …

World-class Gomez showing why fan patience is priceless

Liverpool's 1-0 win over Everton in the FA Cup has to go down one of the most memorable Merseyside derbies of all time. It may not have been the Premier League, which clearly takes precedence this season, but the nature of the victory was a mixture of hilarious and commendable. For such an inexperienced Liverpool side to overcome their full-strength local rivals was an astonishing effort, when defeat looked on the cards prior to kickoff. While Curtis Jones earned the …

Around the same time, the Club had signed others from the South coast including Dejan Lovren, Nathaniel Clyne, Adam Lallana and, previously, Rickie Lambert. Some of which failed to live up to their hefty price tags. However, the development of Sadio Mané over the last three years has turned him into …
Why Losing Wijnaldum Wouldn't be a Disaster

Why Losing Wijnaldum Wouldn't be a Disaster

Georginio Wijnaldum is an incredibly versatile, incredibly intelligent, and above all else incredibly important midfielder in this Liverpool team. He never gets injured, he never puts in less than a 6/10, he does the job that Klopp asks him to do week in, week out and there’s a reason that he is almost always on the team sheet when fit. Wijnaldum has started 19 of Liverpool’s 20 league games this season and started 32 last season, on top of 11 …

Gini Wijnaldum: The real MVP of this Liverpool team

If pressed to name Liverpool’s most important player, a case could be made for a number of the team. Virgil van Dijk and Alisson are often at the top of the pile, Fabinho entered the conversation after his dominant performances earlier on in the campaign while Roberto Firmino, Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mane can all make a claim to be Jurgen Klopp’s MVP. The latest name on that evergrowing list is Trent Alexander-Arnold. The young right-back is the creator-in-chief for …
