Liverpool Should Fear Nobody In Search For European Cup No.6

Liverpool Should Fear Nobody In Search For European Cup No.6

Liverpool just stuffed the so-called ‘best team in Europe right now’. They didn’t fluke a win against them - in fact, the eventual 4-3 scoreline was very generous on a Man City side who actually performed quite well. It was a victory that showed exactly how far the Reds have come with Jurgen Klopp in charge, and there is a growing feeling that something special is on the horizon at Anfield. Although the Premier League title has once again evaded …
Why Emre Can Will Become a World-Class Number Six

Why Emre Can Will Become a World-Class Number Six

Emre Can has been a player who has polarised the opinion of Liverpool fans, not just about how good he is but what his best position is also. Up until this season, many fans including myself believed he was most effective in the number 8 position, operating as a box to box midfielder. This role gives him the freedom to make those driving runs into the final third on a more regular basis, linking midfield with the attack without as …
Roberto Firmino: Underrated Brazilian The Heartbeat Of Klopp’s System

Roberto Firmino: Underrated Brazilian The Heartbeat Of Klopp’s System

Philippe Coutinho was probably regarded as the most talented of the ‘Fab Four’ prior to his departure, with Sadio Mane the speedster of the pack and Mo Salah the marksman who’s hit the ground running to provide a new lease of life to Klopp’s attacking force. Yet, there can be no argument that Roberto Firmino is Liverpool’s most important man. Sunday’s 4-3 thriller against Manchester City was a testament to that, with the Brazilian’s goal eerily similar to Robbie Fowler’s …
Why Liverpool Will Always Be Bigger Than Any One Player

Why Liverpool Will Always Be Bigger Than Any One Player

It took all of eight minutes to remind Anfield of one very special fact. Liverpool Football Club is bigger than any player. Alex-Oxlade Chamberlain’s driving run, emphatic finish and impassioned celebration perfectly emblemised the oft-romanticised ‘Liverpool spirit’ – the idea that you don’t buy a great player, rather a player becomes great in the cauldron that is Anfield. Like a gladiatorial pit in Rome; Anfield’s coliseum atmosphere is what decides the fate of its competitors, not their previous reputation or …
The Reality of Sadio Mane's Season

The Reality of Sadio Mane's Season

Sadio Mane is more than just the second line of a viral song about Liverpool F.C’s frontline. In 2016/2017 he was Liverpool’s best player, his form reflected in his 2nd place finish - behind his Liverpool compatriot Mohamed Salah - in 2017’s CAF African Player Of The Year awards. The Senegalese forward was so integral to the fortunes of his club that his departure to the African Cup of Nations ushered in a January slump of epic proportions. In the …
Why Liverpool don't need to replace Phil Coutinho... Yet

Why Liverpool don't need to replace Phil Coutinho... Yet

Sunday morning, a few hours before Liverpool kicked off against Manchester City, I was just about done. It hadn’t been the best day for Liverpool up until that point, as the toxic fever pitch and maelstrom of Liverpool fans’ complaints about everything from Jon Flanagan’s guilty plea right the way through to Liverpool deciding £90m was too much to bid for Thomas Lemar reached a crescendo. And I’d had enough. I didn’t want to see one more stupid, angry tweet …
Reborn Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain Continues To Excel

Reborn Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain Continues To Excel

If ever a day summed up why Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain's decision to trade Arsenal for Liverpool last August was an inspired one, it was Sunday. As the 24-year-old was sat preparing for the Reds’ eagerly-anticipated clash with Man City, his former club were blowing a lead and suffering defeat at Bournemouth, languishing in sixth-place in the Premier League in the process. In a parallel universe, Oxlade-Chamberlain could easily have been lining up at Dean Court in a horribly average Arsenal team …
What We've Learnt About Klopp's LFC | Part 3: The Reds Making Great Strides Forward

What We've Learnt About Klopp's LFC | Part 3: The Reds Making Great Strides Forward

Much has been made in recent months about Jurgen Klopp's stubbornness. From slow in-game changes to persevering with persistent underachievers. However, Klopp has come out fighting since the Spurs game and stuck the proverbial fingers up to the critics, with his team showing some really good form. This form culminated in what was a largely magnificent tactical performance against Man City (despite our defenders' best efforts to throw the game away!). Character The City game showed Klopp's ability to go …
Liverpool Press On Despite Distractions

Liverpool Press On Despite Distractions

Distractions are something no manager ever wants to deal with. The narrative for so many seasons gone awry at Liverpool or anywhere in sport usually surrounds a player dispute or an underlying negative that eventually pulled the whole team down. Back in 2015, around this time of year, reality started to set in that the Suarez replacements weren’t going to pull their weight, Champions League places were going to be a one-off and it seemed any little bit of bad …
Key Stats from Liverpool 4-3 Man City

Key Stats from Liverpool 4-3 Man City

Liverpool saw off Manchester City in an absolutely staggering 4-3 win that might well rank as one of their best performances under Jürgen Klopp. But what were the key stats from this incredible game of football? Finishing Levels: Insane This was a game of absolutely brilliant goals. All four of Liverpool’s goals were outrageously good finishes, and the xG merely reinforced that. Liverpool’s total expected goals for the entire game was only 1.02 – and the total xG for their …
