Observations as a Virgil Van Strike beats Everton

TELL YER MA, YER MA, TO WIPE AWAY ALL YOUR TEARS, NO TROPHIES FOR 20 YEARS, TELL YEAR MA, YER MA. Thanks to big Virgil Van Dijk, Liverpool fans will be able to sing that for another year yet. It was touch and go at times, especially when the Reds spontaneously combusted defensively to let Gylfi Sigurdsson level up, but in the end, a combination of James Milner's penalty spot talent and Van Dijk's aerial prowess mean that the Reds …
A Different Kind Of Win At

A Different Kind Of Win At "Tough" Moor - Burnley 1 Liverpool 2

You can keep your 7-0s. That was my type of game. Don’t get me wrong, I love a pasting, particularly if it looks on the cards from the outset. I was at the famous 9-0 game against Crystal Palace in 1989 and though it was ‘only’ 3-0 at halftime there was a sense that this side were there for a merciless beating. The whole ground knew that Palace would want to get off the pitch as soon as possible such …

Observations as Liverpool Come Back From Behind Against Foxes

Liverpool came back from behind to win 2-1 with Leicester on Saturday after a blunder from Joel Matip saw Jamie Vardy put the visitors in front after just three minutes. Klopp's side responded well though, moving the ball around nicely and creating several chances for the in-form Mo Salah. It seemed to be an off-day for the Egyptian after he failed to convert two great opportunities before returning to his usual free scoring self in the second-half. Sadio Mané delivered …

Observations as Liverpool and Arsenal share out gifts

Liverpool were peak Liverpool, Arsenal were peak Arsenal. Four minutes and 46 seconds between their three goals. Liverpool should have scored seven, they had to settle for three, and settle for one point. "We've got to become more boring" said James Milner in his post-match interview, that made me laugh. Little else did, really. Here's what I observed through the steam cloud coming from my ears. How many chances for Mignolet? Absolutely shocking, again. It's always coming around the corner. …
