Liverpool's Fullback Creativity and Recruitment Targets – Part 1

Liverpool's Fullback Creativity and Recruitment Targets – Part 1

Liverpool’s Fullback Creativity and Recruitment Targets – Part 1 An analytical deep dive to profile Liverpool's fullback creativity and answer the question - is it sustainable? This season, Liverpool consistently lacked a midfield set-up that tasked a player to be a high performing creator and goal threat. That meant the absence of a midfielder to carry the ball past defensive lines, complete creative passes into the box and take dangerous shots from inside the box, all at a high level. …

Dejan Lovren speaks about Reds' improvement under Jurgen Klopp

Liverpool's Croatian international defender Dejan Lovren feels that this current Reds squad is capable of battling for major honours over the next few years under Jurgen Klopp. The Reds' number six, who had to deal with plenty of injury concerns this season, is still a vital cog in Klopp's Liverpool machine and a strong asset to have as part of the squad. Speaking to Liverpoolfc.com, Lovren was asked about the progress his team has made since Klopp's arrival in late …
Time For Klopp's Liverpool To Stop Being Nearly Men

Time For Klopp's Liverpool To Stop Being Nearly Men

In Jürgen Klopp’s first season as Liverpool manager, his team reached an excellent two cup finals, losing the League Cup final on penalties to Man City, before throwing away a 1-0 lead at half-time to Sevilla in the Europa League final, a competition that included sensational wins over Man United, Villareal and most notably Borussia Dortmund. Now at the time, and certainly with hindsight, Liverpool fans certainly felt that these cup finals were the Reds ahead of schedule, and not …
Liverpool ITK Chaos As Window Opens

Liverpool ITK Chaos As Window Opens

In seasons past the summer window represented a rare source of hope, a lottery ticket of sorts for Liverpool to vault into European and even domestic relevance. The speculation, the rumour, the plane tracking, and yes… even the Sprinter van stalking, it’s all part of the transfer window magic. This year it isn’t as critical. The Reds are back. The squad is young, accomplished and reinforcements are already either coming back from loans or moving up from the youth ranks. …

Joe Gomez feels Reds are a stronger proposition ahead of this year's Champions League final

Liverpool's young defender Joe Gomez believes The Reds are better placed for Champions League success this season than they were ahead of their meeting with Real Madrid in Kiev a year ago. Gomez, who only turns 22 next week, missed out on the squad for the final last season after undergoing ankle surgery. This time around, the former Charlton Athletic player is just returning from another serious injury, having fractured his lower leg at Burnley in early December. However, positivity …
Try wipe the smile from my face

Try wipe the smile from my face

Grinning at the wall as I stand at a urinal. It’s the litmus test for happiness - male happiness, at least. Not only was I trying to engage the lavatorial tilework in a joyous staring contest, but I was also making eye-contact with other men in this den of iniquity - trying to engage them in conversation about a football match. That’s unheard of, in my life, at least. It’s normally a case of getting in, doing what I’ve got …
Muchas Gracias - How Liverpool upset the population of Barcelona

Muchas Gracias - How Liverpool upset the population of Barcelona

Three days after Liverpool emphatically turned around a three-goal deficit to reach the Champions League final, I arrived in Barcelona for a short trip still ecstatic from the result. What I learned just moments after getting off the plane was that this result hasn’t just hurt Messi and the rest of the team it’s hurt a whole city. Getting into a taxi outside the airport the driver immediately noticed my Liverpool jersey before venting his frustrations in a Spanish slur. …
That Manchester City Video

That Manchester City Video

I never used to consider myself to be a victim. But recent incidents have made me rethink that. To put it bluntly, being a Liverpool fan means I’m treated differently. If I’m ever offended it’s because I’m a victim. If I feel something is unjust I’m a victim. State an opinion someone disagrees with and, yep, you guessed it, I’m a victim. It shouldn’t be the case but I’ve almost become numb to it on social media. In the past, …

Could Liverpool Take The Djene Out Of Getafe?

Could Liverpool Take The Djene Out Of Getafe?

When it comes to La Liga, there are usually just two clubs that are truly considered worthy of making the headlines and, as everyone in the footballing world knows, it is the colossal pairing of Barcelona and Real Madrid. Dominating the back pages, they can usually be found sweeping up almost all before them on both domestic and continental frontiers. This duopoly has won 58 Spanish league championships between them. However, they are not the only entities to be creating a …
