Steven Gerrard’s Villa Impact

Steven Gerrard’s Villa Impact

Stevie Gerrard cemented his role as Aston Villa manager this past weekend when leading his new side into Anfield. The game was full of frustration, and gave mild indications of the manager he is becoming. With an ultra defensive style and formula built to slow the rampaging reds, he showed perhaps too much respect for Jürgen Klopp’s side. The narrow 1-0 home win managed to hide the the domination of Liverpool, and the negative approach by the visiting team wasn’t …
Inter Milan & The Knockout Stages

Inter Milan & The Knockout Stages

After that ridiculous Champions League last 16 draw, Inter Milan were finally confirmed as Liverpool’s next opponents. The tie is a tantalising match up between two European heavyweights, and one which Jürgen Klopp’s men should eagerly await. Last season, the Serie A saw Antonio Conte’s team finally capture the Italian League title, after Juventus monopolised the Scudetto for nine long years. The make up of that Inter side was both controlled and ultra organised, with Conte implementing his plan over …

The Champions League Group Stage Stars

As far as Champions League Group Stage campaigns go, things could not have gone any better for Liverpool this season and after getting the better of AC Milan recently, it meant the Merseyside men picked up a maximum 18 points from Group B. A tally that not only saw them top their four-team mini-league but also afforded them seeded status in the draw for the Round of 16 and with that usually means a safer passage to the last eight, …

Liverpool 1 - 0 Aston Villa- The Player Ratings

Alisson Becker - 5.5 Long stretches of inactivity and some hairy moments led to an up and down afternoon. If these suspect moments see a clean sheet and a probable kick start ensue (before the next run of games), then that’s just fine. Trent Alexander Arnold - 7.5 The low blocks and overloading of Gerrard’s Villa frustrated, but Trents ability and strength from the right are so apparent. Good defensive work also. Andy Robertson - 8.0 It’s not a false …
Rob Jones - An Exceptional Fullback

Rob Jones - An Exceptional Fullback

The position of fullback has perhaps seen the biggest evolution over the last few decades, especially at Anfield. The current versions are an attacking force of nature, with Andy Robertson’s endeavour and willing a delight to behold. On the opposite flank, Trent Alexander Arnold has become an absolute revelation, and sits firmly as the world's best attacking fullback. The periods before our current pair (and able backups) were often uninspired. To concentrate on the right sided fullback area, it was …
Who Will the Reds Fight in Round of 16?

Who Will the Reds Fight in Round of 16?

Six wins in six matches, 17 goals scored, and 18 points collected - the Reds’ performance in the Champions League group stage so far was amazing, only outdone by Ajax (three more goals scored) and Bayern Munich (with five more goals). Based on these results, bookies agree that Liverpool has a real chance of even winning the tournament, no matter if they are high street shops in England or outlets providing sports betting in Vietnam. It’s still too early to …
Konaté vs Zlatan

Konaté vs Zlatan

It seems to be common within modern cinema, to pit an unstoppable force against the immovable object. It’s often a tale of strength, arrogance, and sometimes a legendary icon pitted against a worthy opponent. The last few weeks (indeed much of the season), has seen a certain rhetoric take place regarding certain players. The likes of Naby Keïta and Ibrahima Konaté, both possess tremendous attributes as footballers. The former has the potential to be an elite level midfielder, yet injuries …

AC Milan 1-2 Liverpool: Player ratings

Liverpool became the first English team to win all six of their Champions League group stage matches by beating AC Milan 2-1 at the San Siro. The Reds must have felt almost guilty as they crushed Milan's Round of 16 dream even after making nine changes from the weekend's win over Wolves. Fikayo Tomori had put the hosts in front, only for Mohamed Salah and Divock Origi to smartly convert on the rebound either side of half time. A damning …

A Goodison Park Dream

A Goodison Park Dream

I remember (many, many years ago), spending entire days playing Championship Manager. It would have been at least 25 years ago, where I would spend entire summer holidays managing teams, and searching for players to sign. Often times I would be the Liverpool manager, but here and there I would mix up my club of choice. AC Milan, with the likes of Maldini, Albertini, Weah and Zvonimir Boban were a particular favourite. Atalanta were a fun side, PSV rings a …
