Arsenal 0 - 2 Liverpool - The Player Ratings

Arsenal 0 - 2 Liverpool - The Player Ratings

Caoimhin Kelleher - 7.0 A good first half, with lots of possession against Arsenals press. Solid composure under pressure, and another good outing. Trent Alexander Arnold - 9.0 A great moment for the opening goal, and the playmaker is looking imperious on the ball. Gave good solidity at the back, and tracked runners well. Kept sliding into a central areas to create on the ball brilliance. The pass for the second goal was sensational. Andy Robertson - 7.5 Limited on …
Michael Owen - What Could Have Been

Michael Owen - What Could Have Been

To say that Michael Owen creates controversy throughout the Reds' fanbase would be an understatement. The BT pundit is now as famous for his obvious analysis as his on field exploits. Given the talent, promise and initial impact of this former Liverpool man,  that is an utter tragedy. The former red is the absolute prototype of players that fade away over time, and end up a complete shadow of their former prime. At just 17 years old, Owen broke onto …

Liverpool 0-0 Arsenal: Player Ratings as Reds fail to punish Xhaka and Arsenal

Takumi Minamino missed a glorious late chance as Liverpool limped to a goalless draw with Arsenal in the first leg of their League Cup semifinal. It was by far the best of the few opportunities The Reds fashioned following Granit Xhaka's two-reds-for-the-price-of-one dismissal 24 minutes into the game. Liverpool of course missed the threat, and above all the movement, of Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mane, but this shouldn't be considered an inevitable mid-AFCON slump. Like the game against Chelsea in …
Can Jordan Henderson replace James Milner as Liverpool's utility man?

Can Jordan Henderson replace James Milner as Liverpool's utility man?

Jordan Henderson has and always will be a divisive subject amongst Liverpool fans. You have some who won’t hear a bad word said against him and simply refuse to acknowledge when he has a game to forget. You then have those who are the complete opposite and will find a negative in every single one of his performances. They will go out of their way to find a way to scapegoat him.  However, I’ve noticed both sides in agreement - …
An Opportunity Lost

An Opportunity Lost

When Liverpool emerged victorious to claim their 6th European Cup, it should have marked the start of domination for the reds. The League title was finally claimed a year or so later, and despite the lack of any substantial signings since, there was still strong signs that vast silverware could be claimed. That Champions League win saw a team littered with obscene talent, brought together by the world class talents of Jürgen Klopp. The fact that only one major trophy …
Why Curtis Jones could be Thiago's backup for Liverpool

Why Curtis Jones could be Thiago's backup for Liverpool

Curtis Jones has gone under the radar this season. Harvey Elliott’s exploits early on coupled with his injury issues has meant people have kind of forgotten about the 20-year-old after an impressive 2020/21 campaign.  He’s back now, but what role can he play for the Reds moving forward? Liverpool find themselves in limbo in the middle third. They have the numbers and you could argue that they have the quality if you’re looking at players on an individual basis, but …
Look Forward, Not Back.

Look Forward, Not Back.

Every transfer window brings stories of returning former players, and in Liverpool’s case, it is probably the most common in the league. Over the years (and especially within the Premier League era), the reds have moved on some exceptional talent. In the more recent past (and certainly more relative to the present), Liverpool have at times been linked with the return of such past talents. Daniel Sturridge, Luis Suarez, Philippe Coutinho and Raheem Sterling are the key figures, that often …
Why James Milner started against Chelsea

Why James Milner started against Chelsea

There is a misconception that if a player starts ahead of someone else, they are the better one. In reality, they are usually just viewed as the better fit for that game by the manager. Football these days is not a one size fits all sort of thing. It really is a squad game and that is why so many teams spend ridiculous amounts of money adding depth.  This has been a topic of debate on Liverpool Twitter following the …
What should Liverpool do with Naby Keita?

What should Liverpool do with Naby Keita?

Naby Keita was supposed to be a game-changer for Liverpool. Courted by many of Europe’s elite after an eye-catching debut campaign with RB Leipzig, it was viewed as a coup when the Reds managed to strike a deal with the Bundesliga side to secure his signature. The agreement saw the midfield dynamo remain in Germany for another year. It was a necessary evil to ensure the club beat out interest from Bayern Munich and Barcelona.  However, that extra year in …
