Opinion: We've All Been Darwin Nunez

Opinion: We've All Been Darwin Nunez

When I was at school, there was a girl who found sheer joy in taking the mickey out of me. She would wind me up whenever she could, and she wouldn't stop. I would always try to keep my cool, but one day, it went too far. I can't remember exactly what it was she said, but I said something back. I don't remember exactly what I said, but it wasn't nice. She went crying to the teacher and I …
Liverpool 1 - 1 Crystal Palace - Man Of The Match

Liverpool 1 - 1 Crystal Palace - Man Of The Match

Harvey Elliott The teenager started, and was the bright spark of very few positives for the Reds. His youthful enthusiasm means he is currently a must in the first eleven, and hopefully with some Naby shaped control in the middle (and 11 men on the pitch), he can continue his good form against Man United in a weeks time. His willingness to bring Mo & Trent into play was evident, and his decision making on point when possession was needed. …

Liverpool 1 - 1 Crystal Palace - The Player Ratings

Liverpool 1 - 1 Crystal Palace - The Player Ratings Alisson Becker - 6.5 Came in for some flak last week. He could do nothing for the opening goal, and was superb in denying Zaha shortly thereafter in a one on one. Had little to do, in another frustration filled game. Trent Alexander-Arnold - 6.5 A rare poor outing versus Fulham, he looked to redeem himself immediately. He was eager in trying to unleash those ahead, and probably should have …
Liverpool v Crystal Palace - Time For Darwin To Explode

Liverpool v Crystal Palace - Time For Darwin To Explode

No Liverpool fan is happy with how the Reds' opening game against Fulham went, and it really is a question as to who starts this game. Injuries are an issue, but there is still more than enough to collect all three points. The balance of the team needs to be addressed and certain games simply require certain players to be starting. We know Thiago Alcantara is out, joining both Curtis Jones and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain on the midfield injured list. With …
Naby Keïta & His Window Of Opportunity For Liverpool

Naby Keïta & His Window Of Opportunity For Liverpool

As soon as Thiago Alcantara was confirmed as an injury casualty, most Liverpool fans panicked given the Spaniard's superb influence on this current Liverpool side. The Liverpool shape can commonly be predicted with a clear understanding of  its structure. Thiago Alcantara has operated as the orchestrator and tempo setter in every game he’s played, and his lack of availability is of course a concern. He has been able to enhance his physicality and get up to speed, within a league …
What would Matheus Nunes have brought to Liverpool?

What would Matheus Nunes have brought to Liverpool?

Portuguese media have been linking Matheus Nunes with a move to Liverpool for most of the transfer window. Correio da Manha still claim the Reds are preparing to make a move for the 23-year-old while Pedro Almeida posted a tweet today saying Liverpool are willing to pay €40million for the Brazilian-born Portugal international amid interest from Manchester City. Paul Joyce, however, has published an article today in which he says the Merseysiders are not pursuing a deal for the Sporting …
Will Logic Prevail For Liverpool In This Window…

Will Logic Prevail For Liverpool In This Window…

One of the saddest moments for any football supporter, is when their teams summer transfer business is prematurely complete. Now and and again, I’ll type in the name of a player we’ve been linked to, and read only the twitter threads that state a signing is imminent. Anything that offers bad news (often logic) is dismissed, and I start to envisage what could be. A deep dive to uncover some background on the player might come next, with a thorough …

Opinion: United's Misery Echoes Our Own Dark Days Pre-Klopp

After tuning in and watching from my sofa as Liverpool were on the wrong side of a 3-0 thumping at Anfield, I remember the feeling crashing over me: "We're not a big club anymore." The date was 29 August 2015, and it was the first time that thought had ever crossed my mind. Here we were, humiliated at home by a mid-table West Ham side that had never beaten us at Anfield in the Premier League; some 16 months removed …
Fulham 2 - 2 Liverpool: The Post Mortem

Fulham 2 - 2 Liverpool: The Post Mortem

Jurgen Klopp is world class in every sense. His personality, his coaching style, his ability to evolve, his adoration of the wonderful support, and his affection towards his players. It is this last part which can often cause the odd mishap in his spectacular Liverpool reign. His loyalty to certain players is applauded by many, and there is obviously great pride in how he treats his players. Players that have felt the warm embrace of the big German would run …
Fulham 2-2 Liverpool - Observations from a disappointing opener for the Reds

Fulham 2-2 Liverpool - Observations from a disappointing opener for the Reds

Liverpool eked out a point at Craven Cottage against Fulham, with a performance that barely merited it, to open the new Premier League season. The Reds were far away from the level they need to be at, for a side with ambitions such as theirs, and sent out an immediate note of concern to Jurgen Klopp on the opening day. Aleksandar Mitrovic opened the scoring, rising above Trent Alexander-Arnold at the back-post, in a first-half where Fulham overwhelmed Klopp's side. …
