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 …
Five Striker Options for Liverpool to Target

Five Striker Options for Liverpool to Target

Another day. Another Daniel Sturridge injury. The frequency and consistency of the frail, yet undeniably talented Daniel Sturridge has hit Liverpool hard, and following a promising yet inconsistent start under Jurgen Klopp, it’s clear that the German’s men require a bolster of firepower to increase their goal output. Roberto Firmino has been the most impressive of the attacking complement, yet he is best suited to being the attacking tip of the triumvirate behind the striker. Christian Benteke, while a potent …
Liverpool's Midfield Matches

Liverpool's Midfield Matches

A disappointing result, and a disappointing weekend, however turning the result into a positive we were missing in my eyes first team players like Mamadou Sakho, Emre Can, Jordan Henderson, Philippe Coutinho and Daniel Sturridge.  Five players who make a difference. You would still like to think a team in some people's opinions who are genuine title challengers should still be able to get a win against a struggling team low on confidence such as Newcastle United.  And I would …
Red, White and New: Klopp is America's Dream

Red, White and New: Klopp is America's Dream

As Americans, our growing, yet seemingly sudden love affair with “soccer” (called from here on "football", for aesthetic reasons) is often times seen as something from a monster story by the more "traditional" fans; our passion, love and desire for our newly adopted teams grafted onto this sporting body and jolted to life by some arbitrary happening. Like a man choosing his soul-mate by picking a name at random in the phone book, so is the life of the American …
Should We Dream a Dream of Stevie G?

Should We Dream a Dream of Stevie G?

"Stevie Gerrard, Gerrard, he'll pass the ball forty yards, he's big and he's fucking hard, Stevie Gerrard, Gerrard!". Much to the delight of a lot of Liverpool fans, Steven Gerrard this week started training with Liverpool in a bid to keep his fitness up during the MLS close season. For some fans, Gerrard should never been allowed leave the club in the first place and the manner in which he left the club was a disgrace because of his history with …
