Why Judging Mané and Firmino By Goals Scored is Foolish

Why Judging Mané and Firmino By Goals Scored is Foolish

While Mohamed Salah once again stole all of the headlines in Liverpool's latest win over Brighton at the Amex Stadium at the weekend, it can be quite easy for criticism to be drawn to his attacking colleagues as to their contributions to goals this season. Jürgen Klopp's revered front three draw plaudits the world over last season for their dazzling displays both domestically and in Europe, as the Reds plundered goals for fun and amassed 47 goals in the Champions …

Commander Klopp

A mild wind blows through the open roof, seagulls squawking high above as the distant sea air fills the nostrils. Sprinklers twist and turn, sending water spritzing in dancing circles. Neatly trimmed grass clipped and groomed to perfection. The netting rustling as it is tightened on opposite ends. A pristine field. The perfect place for battle. One hundred and one meters long by 68 meters wide. An arena for gladiators to showcase their best; to reach for the stars and etch …
Should Liverpool keep Daniel Sturridge?

Should Liverpool keep Daniel Sturridge?

The striker’s contract is due to expire in the summer. Many fans are divided on whether to offer Daniel Sturridge a new contract or let him go for free. So, what shall it be? The England international has been at Liverpool for six years this month since January 2013. Yes, he has been injury prone, but he has also had some fine moments for the club. If you cast your mind back to his debut for Liverpool in the FA …
Conservative Reds Show Substance Over Style

Conservative Reds Show Substance Over Style

There was a moment in the first half of Liverpool’s 1-0 win over Brighton where Gini Wijnaldum picked the ball up 20/25 yards from goal, assessed his options, passed the ball sideways to Jordan Henderson, who promptly gave the ball back to Wijnaldum, only for Gini to turn around and pass the ball 40 yards backwards to Fabinho. My groan was audible. It was that sort of game. This article isn’t necessarily going to be a defence of that moment, …
Brighton 0-1 Liverpool: A Tactical Breakdown

Brighton 0-1 Liverpool: A Tactical Breakdown

When it comes to stifling Liverpool's attacking ability this season, Chris Hughton's Brighton side has probably been one of the most successful. In the league match at Anfield, it was a single mistake - through taking a short free-kick inside their own half, and allowing themselves to be pressed - which was punished. Apart from that, their defensive performance was sound, astute and very rarely under threat. The same was largely true of Brighton's first-half performance against Liverpool. Brighton's setup …
Brighton 0-1 Liverpool: Who was man of the match?

Brighton 0-1 Liverpool: Who was man of the match?

Grinding out a win when not at your best is a mark of champions, according to the old footballing axiom. Brighton made life difficult for Liverpool on Saturday afternoon, but when the Reds found the breakthrough their game-management was superb. It was a pedestrian first-half performance for the visitors, who predictably encountered a compact and deep-lying Brighton backline. The only real moments of excitement were a near-miss from a sliding Roberto Firmino and a header which Xherdan Shaqiri planted narrowly …

Key Stats As Salah Sees Off The Seagulls (Again)

Liverpool broke their mini-run of poor form with a hard-fought 1-0 win over Brighton on the south coast. But what were the key stats from a vital victory at the Amex? Salah The Difference Yet Again How many times is Mo Salah going to be the man to drag Liverpool out of a hole?

Sleepy Seagull Saturday keeps Liverpool on title path

Sleepy Seagull Saturday keeps Liverpool on title path

A sleepy Saturday saw Liverpool cruise to another win and our 57th point of the season; 1 short of our full season totals in 04/05 and 10/11, already having surpassed the 98/99 and 11/12 totals.  The fact that we’re climbing the list of Liverpool’s top Premier League point totals in the middle of January is quite something.  Now it’s up to Spurs against United on Sunday and City against Wolves to keep up the pace. The match was one that …
