Where would Mbappe fit in in 2020 Liverpool?

Where would Mbappe fit in in 2020 Liverpool?

It is one of the transfer rumours that simply won't go away. Kylian Mbappe is one of world football's hottest talents, and the young Frenchman never seems to be too far from the gossip columns. And ever since Liverpool's kit deal with Nike - which is due to begin next season - was given the green light in the High Court, those rumours have only had more fuel poured onto the fire. Jürgen Klopp has previously spoken of his admiration …
Sterling has nobody to blame but himself...this time

Sterling has nobody to blame but himself...this time

Let's dispel a myth to begin with. The general consensus is that all Liverpool supporters detest Raheem Sterling, never forgiving him for the manner in which he left in 2015. That is well wide of the mark. I don't just speak for myself when I say I've got plenty of time for Sterling, even though he handled his exit badly after that depressing 2014/15 season. Not only a world-class footballer, the 24-year-old has done lots of good off the pitch …
Liverpool 3-1 Manchester City: A Tactical Breakdown

Liverpool 3-1 Manchester City: A Tactical Breakdown

When the fixture list was announced, all eyes immediately scanned for one fixture: Liverpool vs. Manchester City. Last season, the fixture at the Etihad provided some of the most breathtaking, tactically stimulating and utterly brilliant football England has ever seen. It was a credit to football and to sport. This time, the Anfield leg offered Liverpool the opportunity to go nine points clear of their rivals, in November. Titles cannot be won in November, but they can be lost. Whether …
Alexander Arnold The Hidden Midfielder In Plain Sight

Alexander Arnold The Hidden Midfielder In Plain Sight

The question of whether Trent Alexander Arnold will transition from a right back to a midfielder is often asked in footballing circle. Such is the 21 year old's unique skill-set, it is felt by many that he is wasted at full back. His talents, it is said, would be better suited to a more central position where he could receive the ball more and have a bigger influence on proceedings. The truth is, however, that the academy graduate -- despite …
Liverpool are nine points clear of Man City. Now what?

Liverpool are nine points clear of Man City. Now what?

Liverpool are nine points clear of Manchester City and eight points clear at the top of the Premier League going into the November international break. This piece is going to mostly be about where the hell the Reds go from here, and look at some of the maths now that such a lead has been carved out, but first it’s worth a brief reflection of how they got here. The game will be covered in better detail elsewhere so I …
Do Liverpool Have Another

Do Liverpool Have Another "Best in the World"?

This is the best Liverpool side of the Premier League era. There seems such little controversy in that, yet five years ago, the Reds were in a mire, in freefall after another debilitating second place finish that saw their star striker depart. It was debilitating because there was no recovery, no tactical acumen, no leading light to catch them as they fell. It was during that time, in that season – 14/15 – where the discussion of Liverpool’s midfield woes …
Liverpool 3-1 Manchester City: Observations as Reds overpower title rivals

Liverpool 3-1 Manchester City: Observations as Reds overpower title rivals

It may only be November, but still this has the air of a season-defining victory for title-chasing Liverpool. They lead Manchester City by nine points, and though there remain 26 games before season's end, the sheer relentlessness of the Red machine makes the present deficit look rather bleak for the reigning champions. Pep Guardiola's men played well at Anfield, but ultimately Liverpool just had too much for them. Pre-match fears for City defence realised When the teams were announced, you …
Liverpool 3-1 Manchester City: Who Was Man of the Match?

Liverpool 3-1 Manchester City: Who Was Man of the Match?

What a win that is. Absolutely delightful to get another one over the cardigan-clad crybaby and put us a monstrous 9 points clear of City and 8 points clear at the top of the table. We were extraordinarily clinical when the chances and half-chances fell our way, while the Sky Blues couldn’t do enough to break us down more than once. All the talk will be about VAR as usual but pay no heed to that rubbish – every major …
Stop And Smell The Roses - A Look Ahead To Liverpool v Man City

Stop And Smell The Roses - A Look Ahead To Liverpool v Man City

Here we are, on the precipice of the most important match ever in the history of football since 1992, the dawn of time (historical accuracy brought to you by Sky Sports, Sky Bet and Gary Neville’s pompous sense of self-importance)....... AND IT’S LIVE. The Reds, a crack commando unit, sent to play two games within 24 hours on two separate continents for a crime Sadio Mane didn’t commit. These men promptly escaped from a maximum-security two fixture prison by “lashing …
Marko Grujic vs Denis Zakaria - who suits the Liverpool midfield?

Marko Grujic vs Denis Zakaria - who suits the Liverpool midfield?

Liverpool’s midfield is a divisive topic, but one thing most fans can agree on is that reinforcements will soon be needed. Jordan Henderson is 30 at the end of the current campaign, Gini Wijnaldum turns 29 this month, James Milner is 34 in January and Adam Lallana is 32 in May.  Of the current crop of midfielders, only Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, Fabinho and Naby Keita are closer to 25 than they are 30, and two of those have had injury troubles.  …
