Liverpool 2 - 1 Ajax - Player Ratings

Liverpool 2 - 1 Ajax - Player Ratings

Liverpool 2 - 1 Ajax - Player Ratings Alisson Becker - 7.0 Great ball for the first goal, and looked assured from the outset. Great distribution and couldn’t do nothing for the opening goal. Had a good steady game. Trent Alexander-Arnold - 7.0 Looked bright & determined from the start. Lost his man for their opening goal, and should have been more alert to stop the through ball. Was good going forward, but still had issues in his defensive duties. …
How This Period Can Recalibrate The Reds

How This Period Can Recalibrate The Reds

I work in mechanical engineering, and it means I often have to use various devices in order to test that which requires inspection. Having been in the industry for close to 25 years, I’m pretty aware when something isn’t quite right, and how to adjust. In order to maintain certain levels, pretty much all instrumentation requires a yearly calibration in order to fine tune the apparatus. An engineers' worth is often graded by his ability to overcome problems (or unearth …
Could Liverpool FC be developed even further as a brand

Could Liverpool FC be developed even further as a brand

Liverpool Football Club is one of the biggest clubs in the world both in terms of past success and current as well as future sustained success. Liverpool has accrued a huge fanbase and is, therefore, a huge brand. Liverpool has club stores all over the globe meaning their merchandise can be purchased directly from the club by many international fans. Liverpool also aims to reach their further audience by hosting pre-season fixtures in different areas of the world, including in South …
Napoli 4 - 1 Liverpool - Player Ratings

Napoli 4 - 1 Liverpool - Player Ratings

Alisson Becker - 2.0 Could do little with the surging ways Napoli came out, and both the two opening goals were clinical, though the second maybe he could have done better. Was hopelessly let down by some of his players. Was poor for the fourth, and even the penalty save couldn’t hide a bad game. Trent Alexander-Arnold - 3.0 Was again unsure in possession through the first, short of one driven pass into Mo in the box. Was caught high …
Napoli v Liverpool - Wednesday Night Lights

Napoli v Liverpool - Wednesday Night Lights

I’m not the biggest American Football fan, but can appreciate and enjoy various facets of the game. For me, it’s very much like my casual viewing of the NBA, where I can watch the odd game without the fear of emotion engulfing me. The same cannot be said of my allegiance to Liverpool FC. This recent period (under Klopp) has perhaps spoiled us, but it’s still a viable question as to whether we have overachieved or perhaps underachieved in this …
Why Europe Can Offer A Much Needed Distraction

Why Europe Can Offer A Much Needed Distraction

Six games in, and the Liverpool progress has been at best irregular. With a summer transfer window posing as many questions as answers, it has become a worried fanbase very quickly. When we lost to Man United, that was a low that was quickly reacted to. In the past week we have seen a disjointed display against Newcastle and then Everton, garnering four points. The only positive right now is that Manchester City dropped points, but it doesn’t mask how …
The Good, The Bad and The Ugly From Liverpool VS Everton

The Good, The Bad and The Ugly From Liverpool VS Everton

Well that wasn't good now, was it? Everton 0-0 Liverpool. For the fourth time in six games, Liverpool dropped points. The Reds now sit six points off the top of the table despite having had a very favourable run of games in this opening phase of the season. Liverpool have problems right now. They're not playing well, and they're also not playing with intensity. They've been outrun in each and every game this season, both in terms distance covered and …
Liverpool 0 - 0 Everton - Player Ratings

Liverpool 0 - 0 Everton - Player Ratings

Alisson Becker - 9.0 Both keepers came away with plenty of praise, and kept the clean sheets intact for each opposing side. Ali was big, and made some key saves to ensure Liverpool stayed in the hunt for victory. His importance is critical, but perhaps a little worrying how reliant we were. Man of the match. Trent Alexander-Arnold - 5.0 His form is a major concern, and perhaps an indication that he simply isn’t enjoying life in defence anymore. His …
Liverpool's Disjointed Attack

Liverpool's Disjointed Attack

The game against Bournemouth was the first time this season that Liverpool had been able to get Luis Diaz and Mohamed Salah involved properly.   Prior to that, the wide forward pairing had struggled to influence proceedings on a consistent basis. Diaz, for example, had taken seven shots in his three Premier League appearances. Across matches against Fulham and Crystal Palace, he had an Expected Goals average of just 0.21.  Granted, the sample size isn’t the largest but it was a …
What sort of midfielders do Liverpool need?

What sort of midfielders do Liverpool need?

Liverpool need a midfielder. This is no surprise, secret or revelation.  But there is a big difference between a midfielder and a midfielder suited to Liverpool. There are plenty of midfielders in the world. There are few who are good enough to improve Jurgen Klopp’s middle third. However, one thing that isn’t being discussed in great detail is what sort of midfielder the Reds ideally need.  Is it a controller to fill in for Thiago, a runner to replace Jordan …
