Three Liverpool Problems Even Jurgen Klopp Cannot Fix

Three Liverpool Problems Even Jurgen Klopp Cannot Fix

For many Liverpool supporters the arrival of Jurgen Klopp was a godsend. The charismatic and passionate German has been a breath of fresh air on Merseyside and in English football.  He has rejuvenated Liverpool and masterminded incredible away wins at Chelsea and Manchester City. He even made Dejan Lovren look not-so-terrible. But as much as we all swoon over Klopp's excellence, he is in fact not a god. He faces the same challenges as Brendan Rodgers did. Yes he is …
Feed the Scousers

Feed the Scousers

Feed the Scousers, let them know it’s Christmas time.
How we laugh eh? I was at St James' Park last week for that inexplicably insipid performance from what had, up until that point, been an impressive looking all-red bandwagon we had going on there. (Chill out everyone, it will kick in again any match-day now.) When Newcastle United fans are taking the piss out of you, then you know it has to have been a pretty bad day …
The Coutinho Conundrum

The Coutinho Conundrum

In recent weeks, Liverpool have put on three stellar displays: dismembering Chelsea, Manchester City and Southampton all away from home, and yet there have also been some dire, and rather boring affairs - the Newcastle and Sion matches, and to an extent the Swansea match were all too familiar and brought back bad memories of the last few weeks of Brendan Rodgers' campaign and the lacklustre season before it. In these games, there seemed to be a distinct lack of …
Jürgen Klopp's Defensive Dilemma

Jürgen Klopp's Defensive Dilemma

What a difference a weekend makes. I was all set to have a piece done on why I thought Mamadou Sakho should he the man to partner Dejan Lovren in the heart of the Liverpool defence this weekend against Watford, only for Craig Gardener to recklessly injure him. Now Liverpool fans are stuck with the thoughts of a Martin Skrtel and Mamadou Sakho centre-back pairing. This pairing for me is the stuff of nightmares because of the weak link in …
Liverpool Need A New Man Between The Sticks

Liverpool Need A New Man Between The Sticks

Statistics can tell you a number of things and sometimes can cloud fans judgements on players, some players pass completion rates are incredibly high, but if they only pass safe short passes into the more gifted players, is this really telling you the full picture?  Similarly, with Simon Mignolet, he has had 5 clean sheets in the Premier League this season, and has conceded only 19 goals in 16 games in the league, his shot saved to goal ratio is …
Who are Liverpool's Europa League Opponents Augsburg?

Who are Liverpool's Europa League Opponents Augsburg?

Just who are these German minnows? For those unfamiliar with the Bundesliga a match against Augsburg may seem like a walk in the park. The German outfit currently lay in 13th place, a mere 4 points ahead of bottom side VFB Stuggart in the table having lost half their 16 league games they've played this season. The table doesn't tell the whole story though. It won't be a walk in the park. They lost two of their first three league …
Slapstick Simon: an Anfield Thriller

Slapstick Simon: an Anfield Thriller

"I enjoyed this game. I enjoyed this atmosphere with my whole body. Thank you." - Jurgen Klopp
2 balls dropped. 2 points lost. Simon Mignolet is back. Rumours of a new deal for the Liverpool Number 1 have surely been put on hold after another woeful display at Anfield. After public praise from Jurgen Klopp for his "quality" and "intelligence", Mignolet showed neither in a calamitous performance that is sure to force FSG's hand closer to the chequebook. …
Top 5 Players for Liverpool So Far This Season

Top 5 Players for Liverpool So Far This Season

We're coming up to the midway point of the season already. It's hard to really get a handle of what's happened so far. Depending on the day my opinion shifts from 'how are we halfway through the season already? It feels like it's just started' to 'how are we only in December? It's dragging'. The knock on effect of changing your manager in October can do that to you. It's been a rollercoaster of emotions for the fans so far, …
Time for Liverpool to Sell Sick-Note Sturridge?

Time for Liverpool to Sell Sick-Note Sturridge?

So the man made of glass Daniel Sturridge is out injured again for Liverpool. Is it now time that Liverpool cut their ties with Sturridge and say thanks for the goals and the memories but we can't afford to have a player on our books who spends more time on the treatment table than out on the pitch? I saw on social media recently that Sturridge has only played something like sixteen or seventeen games for Liverpool since Luis Suarez …
Complacency is the Enemy for Liverpool

Complacency is the Enemy for Liverpool

Complacency is the enemy of success. There’s a quote for you, not sure where I heard it, I may have even just made it up. Not that the origin of the quote is what really matters, only the sentiment of it. As magnificent as destroying Southampton 6-1 at their own ground was, it doesn’t mean our next match was a foregone conclusion. Just because Newcastle are having a poor season and look vulnerable, it doesn’t mean it would have been …
