Why Klopp Is Wrong To Ditch Shrewsbury

Why Klopp Is Wrong To Ditch Shrewsbury

So, Jürgen Klopp has announced that he is refusing to manage Liverpool’s FA Cup fourth round replay against Shrewsbury because it takes place during Liverpool’s scheduled winter break and that no first team players will take part. There’s going to be a lot of white noise around this one in the media for a while, and this argument has been boiling up for a while, you’ll remember Liverpool had to play two games in two days back in December and …
Controlled Liverpool Lift 19 Points Clear

Controlled Liverpool Lift 19 Points Clear

Liverpool’s march to the Premier League title continued apace after their 2-0 win over West Ham at the London Stadium. Goals from Mohamed Salah and Alex Oxlade Chamberlain crowned a performance of controlled precision from the Reds, who seldom had to leave second gear against the beleaguered home side. The victory for Jurgen Klopp's team sees them 19 points ahead of Manchester City, having accumulated 70 points in January. Liverpool looked to go for the jugular from the get go …
Reasons why Liverpool can sign Werner, Sancho and Havertz

Reasons why Liverpool can sign Werner, Sancho and Havertz

It feels as though Liverpool are the only top team not allowed to have more than eleven good players. Whenever there’s a link to a top player, the media and countless pundits pipe up to claim they’d struggle to break into Jurgen Klopp’s starting XI so they shouldn’t be signed.  It’s happened recently with Timo Werner. He’s been linked with a move to Merseyside for the best part of three years now but reports claiming he’s set to leave RB …
Is Jurgen Klopp the Enemy of the Football League? Or it's Defender?

Is Jurgen Klopp the Enemy of the Football League? Or it's Defender?

Whether you’re a Liverpool supporter or not, you’ll almost certainly have an opinion on Jurgen Klopp’s comments after (some) of his world champions drew 2-2 against a battling Shrewsbury at New Meadow Stadium. The main talking point from the game was the upcoming replay the Shrews had just valiantly earned themselves in fighting from 2-0 down. Klopp immediately dampened the tone stating, "We will not be there". This was the most cutting line he delivered post-match as he used the …
A Team of Rocks Polished Into Diamonds

A Team of Rocks Polished Into Diamonds

Ask anyone who the most transformative presence at Liverpool football club has been over the last decade, and the answer will be unanimous. Jurgen Norbert Klopp. However, while it’s practically indisputable to say that the German has done the best job of any recent Premier League manager, it’s often understated exactly how he got there. Liverpool being the best football team in Europe at the moment has become normalised, in a way that no reasonable Liverpool fan could’ve expected. Everything …

Shrewsbury Town 2-2 Liverpool - Player Ratings as sloppy Reds are punished and taken to replay

Shrewsbury Town 2-2 Liverpool - Player Ratings as sloppy Reds are punished and taken to replay

In the end, Liverpool were probably lucky they didn't lose the game on the day. Jurgen Klopp will be annoyed at the prospect of having to play a replay against Shrewsbury as well, but this was the least that the hosts deserved, as the lax Reds were pegged back from 2-0 up, as the game finished 2-2. Curtis Jones opened the scoring in the first half, and the Reds were 2-0 up 30 seconds after the restart, with Donald Love's …
Why Jadon Sancho is Liverpool's Next Step Forward

Why Jadon Sancho is Liverpool's Next Step Forward

Last week, this writer published a piece exploring how it is practically impossible to upgrade on this Liverpool team. Which, obviously, would make this piece seem slightly obtuse: why should the Reds pursue a very expensive winger if it won’t actually upgrade them? Well, despite currently being un-upgradeable: the best team in the world, reigning champions of Europe and the world, not to mention champions elect of England, there is always a way forward in football. Standing still, even when …
Wolves 1-2 Liverpool: Key stats as Reds refuse to relent

Wolves 1-2 Liverpool: Key stats as Reds refuse to relent

And so the march continues. There were spells in this frantic contest where Liverpool's unbeaten run looked in real peril, but at the ground where their title 'rivals' Manchester City so spectacularly collapsed, they held firm before snatching victory. It's unlikely that the Premier League has ever seen a side with this capacity to grind out results. In that respect, they are the envy of the footballing, if not the entire sporting, world. The headliners Liverpool have simply forgotten what …
Wolves 1-2 Liverpool: Who Was Man of the Match?

Wolves 1-2 Liverpool: Who Was Man of the Match?

Those dastardly Reds have done it again; the pesky mentality monsters have stolen 3 points at Molineux after a very below-par performance. Roberto Firmino’s late winner puts Liverpool a remarkable 16 points clear at the top of the Premier League with a game in hand. In the net, Alisson could do nothing about the goal. It was an excellent header into the far corner from Raul Jimenez after a good delivery from Adama. Aside from that, our gloved Brazilian dealt …
