Player Ratings as Liverpool get back to winning ways

Player Ratings as Liverpool get back to winning ways

Liverpool returned to winning ways with a second-half penalty from Mohamed Salah enough to see the Reds through a resilient Brighton side. The result means Klopp's side are now seven points clear at the top, with Manchester City playing Wolves on Monday night. Here are the ratings from the match. Alisson - 6 Didn't have a save to make in the first-half given Liverpool's dominance in possession, but coped well with anything thrown at him as Brighton tried to respond …
Liverpool And The Coutinho Dilemma

Liverpool And The Coutinho Dilemma

I don’t like people messing about with Liverpool Football Club. In the same way others think that ancient scriptures should not be tampered with and that the word of the deities to which they sing should be unbendable, I am of the mind that no one should meddle with the central ethos of the club to further their own means. Of course, this is the textbook definition of zealotry and though I find it bitterly distasteful in others, my own …
Liverpool Fans - It's Okay to Hope, This is Why We're Here

Liverpool Fans - It's Okay to Hope, This is Why We're Here

It’s not the hope that kills you. It’s never the hope that kills you. Languishing in mediocrity, having to play in Macedonia on a miserly Thursday night, with aspirations of only being relevant again, that’s what kills you. Being nowhere, existing but not prospering, that’s what kills you. Seeing your best players leave, that’s what kills you. Replacing them with players who can’t possibly fill the void, at the behest of a faulty transfer strategy and wildly obscene ego of …
Ageism Is Working Against James Milner

Ageism Is Working Against James Milner

When a footballer hits 30, or at least in and around that age, something instantly changes in the way they are perceived by supporters. Every bad performance is suddenly due to their advancing years, every misplaced pass is because they’re not as young as they once were and they are used as target practice every time their side suffers defeat. Steven Gerrard even suffered from it, which says it all. This is something we are suddenly seeing come to the …

Ajax Pair Could Help Liverpool’s Title Bid

Ajax Pair Could Help Liverpool’s Title Bid

The January transfer window is now open. After Liverpool’s first defeat of the Premier League season to rivals Manchester City, it is possible that manager Jurgen Klopp could be tempted to dip into the transfer market. Liverpool still hold a four-point lead at the top of the Premiership and whilst the current squad may have Klopp’s backing, it may be wise for the club to strengthen this month. Having won all their December fixtures and enjoying a successful festive period, …
Liverpool's Midfield - Still Not Consistent Enough

Liverpool's Midfield - Still Not Consistent Enough

Liverpool's unbeaten start in the league came to an end last week, which prompted old insecurities in the supporters. A lot of finger-pointing and scapegoating has taken place since. When the starting line-ups were announced there were only two ways it was going to go - the Reds don't lose, and nobody cares, or City beat us, and we all blame the midfield and Dejan Lovren. The Croatian is a topic for another day. I decided to look into how …
Operation CupOut Complete: Wolves 2-1 Liverpool

Operation CupOut Complete: Wolves 2-1 Liverpool

Ah, the magic of the FA Cup... Is there another competition in the world that would allow Liverpool supporters a moment to sit back and appreciate their front-line starters more than this?  How about that squad depth am I right? You could tell Jurgen Klopp was really feeling the magic.  He revered the cup so much that he put out a side consisting of teenagers and Brodge retreads barely hanging on to their squad numbers.  The Reds were leaning on …
Player Ratings as Liverpool are eliminated from FA Cup

Player Ratings as Liverpool are eliminated from FA Cup

This game was always going to be a strange one. Should Klopp go for it and risk injuries to key players in the midst of a genuine title challenge? Or should he play a youthful eleven, succumbing a chance to obtain his first piece of silverware since taking over for Brendan Rodgers? Many fans hoped for the former, with attentions firmly fixed elsewhere on the Reds' upcoming Premier League game against Brighton, the perfect time to offer a response after …
