Naby Keita - Our Midfield Missing Link

Building a team can’t be easy. Take a look at Manchester United. Take a look at Chelsea. Whilst one side - United - is performing much better since appoint a new manager (the natural reaction of a team so far against their former manager that surely anyone remotely positive would see an upturn) the other - Chelsea - have already seen their ‘new manager bounce’ fade away after an incredible and unsustainable start. Both teams have wonderful individual talent, but …

Mentality, mettle, mistakes and Liverpool

Liverpool never seem to do things the easy way. The 2005 Champions League victory was a prime example, from the dramatic late Steven Gerrard goal against Olympiakos to ensure qualification from the group stages to the nerve-wracking win over Chelsea in the semi-final. We all know the emotional rollercoaster that was the incredible penalty shoot-out success against AC Milan. Over the past three decades, we’ve seen defeat snatched from the jaws of victory and success usually come in the most …
What is Liverpool’s Best Midfield?

What is Liverpool’s Best Midfield?

Comparative to previous years where Jurgen Klopp has had four players to choose from off the bat, Liverpool have benefitted from more options in the middle of the park this season, before the rigour of the campaign could take its toll, at least. It’s therefore been of little surprise to see the German utilise the extra options by tailoring his system to each opponent, obtaining the perfect mix of defensive resilience and attacking ingenuity across the board. However, the injuries …

Liverpool returned to the top of the Premier League table with a routine win against Bournemouth, showing a much-improved performance across the board.

Reports of Liverpool's Demise Are Greatly Exaggerated

So Liverpool have bottled the title eh? Well that was a crazy six days. The title was already won on Tuesday, back in the balance on Wednesday, and completely lost by Monday. What a week. All facetiousness aside, the change in media narrative after what was essentially two back to back below par performances from Liverpool has been absolutely massive. Waking up Wednesday morning, most people were ready to crown Liverpool champions after Man City lamely fell apart against Newcastle. …
