How To Get The Best Out Of: Dejan Lovren

How To Get The Best Out Of: Dejan Lovren

Anger, bitterness, sadness. Just three emotions that greeted the majority of fans when it was announced that our beloved Mamadou Sakho would be out for around eight weeks, ruling the Frenchman out until the new year. However, these were only mild emotions, when compared to those when the fanbase realised who will most likely be stepping in for Sakho during his absence - Dejan Lovren. "No, no... there's got to be someone else?" That seems like a realistic reaction for …
Jordan Henderson | Return of the unsung hero

Jordan Henderson | Return of the unsung hero

Not so long ago, he was the butt of many an opposition fan and a few too many journalists as well; sometimes even sections of our own fans. Moving to England’s most successful club is a lot of pressure for any player, let alone as a 20 year old with a £16m price tag on his head. The transfer fee may not be the players fault, but they are often judged against it and the early signs were that it …
How to Get The Best Out of Philippe Coutinho

How to Get The Best Out of Philippe Coutinho

Philippe Coutinho has been the main topic of a lot of debates so far this season. The mercurial maestro is perceived to be in a lull of form and this inconsistency in his game is becoming all but too familiar for Liverpool fans. It seems whenever the Brazilian international is out of sorts then so is the team and with the Reds chasing top four in a weak-looking league they can't afford to be so erratic. It's not really news …
James Milner's Anticlimactic Start to Life at Liverpool

James Milner's Anticlimactic Start to Life at Liverpool

During the summer months, most agreed that the arrival of James Milner was a coup for Liverpool. The Reds beat off stiff competition from Arsenal to land the England international, who allegedly chose us because of the promise of regular first-team football in central midfield – although I’m sure the £150,000-a-week wages helped, too. That Manchester City were so desperate to retain him spoke volumes for his value to the wealthiest team in the league. For all the stars they …
The Importance of Jordan Henderson to Liverpool

The Importance of Jordan Henderson to Liverpool

It’s often said that you don’t know what you’ve got until it’s gone. That statement will certainly ring true with Brendan Rodgers, who is likely to be without his captain Jordan Henderson for a while after the midfielder travelled stateside to seek assistance with a heel injury. Liverpool’s captain has already missed three games and following recent results his stock has arguably never been higher. Liverpool took maximum points from the two games that Henderson started this season. In his …
What's the plan for Flanagan? - Injury, Clyne & the Future

What's the plan for Flanagan? - Injury, Clyne & the Future

Under King Kenny in 2011, two young full-backs were given their first appearances for Liverpool in the Premier League. Whilst Jack Robinson, the club’s second youngest player to make an appearance, failed to live up to expectation and has since been sold to QPR, the other debutant is still at the club. Now 22, Jon Flanagan has won the hearts of many fans for his determined displays at full-back. After a breakout year during the 2013/14 season, Flanagan was regularly …
Emre Can: German Starter, Liverpool Bench?

Emre Can: German Starter, Liverpool Bench?

Emre Can is a bit of an enigma to some Liverpool fans. They just can't understand the furore that surrounds the Liverpool number 23. I've seen plenty of fans say he's overweight, unfit, slow, poor positionally and a hindrance to the team. Bold claims considering the natural centre-midfielder has played that role a mere 10 times for Liverpool. These are the fans who can't see a starting role for the player. You then have the fans on the other side …
Why Roberto Firmino Has To Start From Now On

Why Roberto Firmino Has To Start From Now On

His full debut finally arrived. After Brendan Rodgers had given us snippets of our new number 11 in the previous two league games we finally got to see Roberto Firmino unleashed from the start against Arsenal. I for one wasn't disappointed. He was only on the pitch for an hour but his impact and influence on the team can't be brushed under a rug. In a jinxed away fixture for the Reds, Firmino helped them come away with a well …
Does Henderson Have To Play No Matter What?

Does Henderson Have To Play No Matter What?

According to media reports prior to Monday night's match versus AFC Bournemouth, Jordan Henderson, had pain killing injections for days during the build up to the game due to a foot injury.  The coaching and medical staff clearly deemed it that Henderson, the club captain, was required for the match, even with an injury, this piece looks at that decision. Henderson has recently taken over the captaincy full time following the departure of Steven Gerrard, and no doubt would have …
 Why Alberto Moreno Still Has a Future at Liverpool FC

Why Alberto Moreno Still Has a Future at Liverpool FC

Liverpool started their Premier League campaign with a solid but unspectacular display at Stoke. Three points in the bag, on we go. Bournemouth are up next. Despite a very lukewarm performance in general, Rodgers will be happy with the clean sheet that the defence just about managed to keep. One person who shone in particular was the young Joe Gomez, who despite a couple of errors also had a solid debut at one of the most difficult grounds to visit …
