COVID-19 Tragedy and the Wacker, the Spirit of Scouse

COVID-19 Tragedy and the Wacker, the Spirit of Scouse

I’ve had this piece in mind for weeks. At first my head was full of jokes; how Corona has been with me all my life, from the Corona Lemonade we had as 80s kids, through to overpriced bottles of Corona pale ale and now this. Coronavirus. This isn’t funny anymore. It never was. The jokes rightly should fall on deaf ears. This week and last we lost Stirling Moss, Honor Blackman and Tim-Brooke Taylor – all talented heroes of mine. …
Why hasn't Divock Origi kicked on from Madrid - and is Klopp to blame?

Why hasn't Divock Origi kicked on from Madrid - and is Klopp to blame?

Not only did Divock Origi's goal in the Champions League final reaffirm Liverpool's status as European royalty it also provided the impetus for this season's title bid. However, one person the goal seems to have had the least impact on is the man who actually provided that moment of magic in Madrid. There's no doubting Origi will be remembered extremely fondly by Reds' fans having scored a countless number of important goals, but, you can't help but feel he hasn't …

This Means More

This Means More

This Means More. Liverpool Football Club has always been more than just a football club. It’s a community, it’s a club that engages with the fans and is supposed to care about the people in and around it. This. Means. More. When I first heard that Newcastle and Tottenham, two of the Premier League’s richer clubs, were furloughing their non-playing staff, asking the government to cover 80% of the money for their workers, so that Spurs and Newcastle didn’t have …

Jurgen Klopp's substitution pattern

Jurgen Klopp's substitution pattern

Jurgen Klopp is the best thing to happen to Liverpool Football Club for a long long time and certainly in my lifetime. The transformation of the club under the German is nothing short of incredible and has gotten him a demigod status for the Reds' faithful. During his Anfield reign Klopp has shown tactical flexibility by altering the way the team plays through the years, he is the best man manager we've seen in recent history and really one article …
