FA Cup Fourth Round Preview: Liverpool vs Bolton

FA Cup Fourth Round Preview: Liverpool vs Bolton

A fourth round cup tie against Championship side Bolton Wanderers might feel favourable at the moment. Rodgers and the Reds haven’t lost in a span of eight games, and have only recorded one loss since the blasted ruddy terrible horrendous eye-opening Crystal Palace match in November. I wouldn’t venture into the realm of “brilliance” to describe recent weeks, but you’ve got to say that Liverpool are looking better, yeah? On the other hand, Bolton have seen an upswing in their …

The Mourinho Hoodoo | Burnley Vs Liverpool Preview

The Mourinho Hoodoo | Burnley Vs Liverpool Preview

Breaking the Mourinho hoodoo, kind of. Brendan Rodgers has never defeated Jose Mourinho, so how will he fare against the ‘Ginger Mourinho’ Sean Dyche, when he takes his Liverpool side to what will be a rowdy Turf Moor on Boxing day. The gruffly spoken Burnley manager has done a superb job with Burnley, following on from the relatively good job he did at Watford. He coped with a restrictive budget at both clubs yet managed to get an unfancied Burnley …

"Improving Game By Game" - Liverpool vs Sunderland Match Preview

"Improving Game by Game" As I begin to write my preview on the afternoon of the 4th of December, I reminisce back a year ago, where Norwich visited Anfield to face a vibrant and in-form Liverpool side. Four phenomenal strikes from ex-red Luis Suarez meant the Reds ran out 5-1 winners that day. Whilst we have yet to observe the red men push on and excel since the iconic number seven's departure, things have slowly began to stick together, with Liverpool winning two …

"Season Defining Fixture?" | Liverpool vs Stoke: Match Preview

August the 17th, 2013. A Simon Mignolet last-minute penalty save resulted into Liverpool ending up with a 1-0 win at home to Stoke, and thus kicking off the new league campaign in style. Would I have foreseen such a remarkable campaign to follow suit? Of course not, and here I sit, a year and a bit later with the same fixture about to be played, thinking the exact same thing, however this time, holding a completely dissimilar view. Important Information …
Liverpool Scouting: Ludogorets’ Line-up and Current Form

Liverpool Scouting: Ludogorets’ Line-up and Current Form

Coming to Bulgaria is never easy. Playing in front of 45,000 passionate supports at -3 degrees is a tough challenge. The Bulgarian champions have nothing to lose. They are writing their own history and it’s a brave one. In the Champions League, despite showing great form in the first 3 games, scoring a goal at Anfield, opening the scoring and saving a Ronaldo penalty in Sofia vs Real Madrid and achieving an injury-time 1-0 win vs Basel again in Sofia, they …
Real Madrid v Liverpool Preview - The Impossible Possibilities

Real Madrid v Liverpool Preview - The Impossible Possibilities

Just under two weeks ago we saw Real Madrid come to Anfield and give Liverpool a lesson in what it’s like to play at the top level of European football. With four seasons out of the Champions League, and a group of players and staff with little experience of the competition, we saw a meek, timid performance, which served as no more than a training session for Real Madrid pre-Clásico. It was a display the likes of which we've rarely …
Liverpool v Real Madrid Preview - Opposition Scouting Report

Liverpool v Real Madrid Preview - Opposition Scouting Report

From Champions League group stage debutants Ludogorets Razgrad, to the most successful team in the history of the competition, Real Madrid; Liverpool’s return to the European elite has thrown up a mixed bag of a group which will see the defending champions roll up at Anfield on Wednesday evening. It should be one of those European nights at Anfield, but given Liverpool’s recent defensive troubles the game will be approached with a mixture of excitement and trepidation. These feelings are …

Liverpool vs QPR Preview | Lallana vs Fer Stats Comparison

Sturridge has been Hodged, Sterling has been Hodged and well we've all be Hodged in recent months. Regrettably the Hodging has yet to finish this year with one more international break to come in November.  Liverpool have 7 vital games before then including a double-header against European Champions Real Madrid and Chelsea at home.  This Sunday seeing Liverpool travel down to the capital to face ‘Arry Redknapp's Queens Park Rangers, after a torrid September Liverpool got Octobers Premier League run …
Liverpool vs West Brom including and Mignolet vs Foster Comparison

Liverpool vs West Brom including and Mignolet vs Foster Comparison

A new month and hopefully a new start for Liverpool in the Premier League, as West Bromwich Albion travel to Anfield for Liverpool’s first 3 o’clock kick off of the season on Saturday. September should have been a month to remember for Liverpool as they re-entered the UEFA Champions League after a 5 year absence. However, Liverpool’s Premier League form has definitely made it a month to forget for the Reds, as they picked up 1 of 9 available points. …
