It's Not All Doom and Gloom for Liverpool

It's Not All Doom and Gloom for Liverpool

After conceding a late goal at the Emirates, Jürgen Klopp and his side were resigned to leaving the capital with just one point. The general reaction so far has been one of negativity, largely down to the fact that anything but perfection just doesn't seem good enough - it's the effect that Manchester City have had on the other top 6 sides. As unconvincing as the Reds play has been at times this season, they still find themselves sitting pretty …
Fixing Liverpool's Woes with the 4-2-3-1

Fixing Liverpool's Woes with the 4-2-3-1

Liverpool are currently ailing. It seems almost ludicrous to say, given they currently sit two points behind the automaton that is table-topping Manchester City, but ask any fan and the 2-0 defeat to Red Star Belgrade in the Champions League was not an outlier of a result. Not when Liverpool couldn’t take advantage of Arsenal’s obvious frailties, not when they only escaped with a point against City because of Riyad Mahrez’ wild attempt at a penalty, and not when Huddersfield …

Should Liverpool Drop Bobby Firmino?

Should Liverpool Drop Bobby Firmino?

Liverpool have hit a bad patch of form, and one player who is standing out as struggling is Roberto Firmino. Bobby is not the only player in the Liverpool scratching around for form, but he’s probably somewhere close to the player furthest from his best when you consider that for many people he’s Liverpool’s most integral player and certainly one of their best ones. So the question I want to ask in this article is whether or not Firmino needs …

Ineffective Trio Represent The Past For Liverpool

Who else detested that 2-0 defeat to Red Star Belgrade more than any other game this season? It's rare that you get a Liverpool match where you end up angry at every single player, but not one individual could fly back to Merseyside with their head held high, after what was a display without positives. You could pick out infuriating things about each Reds performer on the night, whether it be Trent Alexander-Arnold's continued slump, Gini Wijnaldum's ghost-like performance or …

Tough Questions, Tougher Answers | Red Star Belgrade 2 Liverpool 0

Saturday was different. Jurgen Klopp’s men entertained a much different Arsenal than those they used to under Arsene Wenger, and they didn’t seem ready for it. Ordinarily, home teams tend to give Liverpool the ball and lock the space down around the box, but this new Arsenal demanded more of the ball and went straight for the Mersey jugular. Despite this, Liverpool led though they could not hold out. A point was fair comment on all sides. Liverpool were not …

Red Star 2-0 Liverpool: What Went Wrong?

A sobering night in Belgrade saw a second successive away performance in the Champions League that left much to be desired. Far from the vintage Liverpool witnessed last season, this was as bleak as it gets for Jurgen's men; no ingenuity, no guile and no drive for success or at least attempt to turn the tables after a dismal opening forty-five minutes, Tuesday's display will be a genuine concern to many. Naby Keita's continued recovery from injury would restrict him …

Observations as Liverpool deliver dire performance in Belgrade

Observations as Liverpool deliver dire performance in Belgrade

Last season Liverpool were effervescent in the Champions League, breaking the record for goals scored in a single European campaign and generally taking teams by storm with a high intensity, gegenpressing style that put the opposition straight on the backburner with no hope of recovering after a 10-15 minute blitz. It was the opposite case in Belgrade however, with the Reds struggling to get going from the first whistle to last, showing a lack of guile and creativity to fashion …
