Tactical Analysis: Liverpool 4 Borussia Dortmund 0

It is important to preface this analysis by saying the Bundesliga season doesn’t start until the week after the Premier League, so Borussia Dortmund were seven days behind in their physical preparation. However, at times, Rodgers’ Liverpool made them look like they had never played football before, with the exquisite movement, technical ability and break-neck speed of the attacking play. Line-Ups: Liverpool:  Mignolet, Johnson, Skrtel, Lovren, Manquillo, Gerrard, Henderson, Sterling, Coutinho, Can, Sturridge. Subs: Brad Jones, Jose Enrique, Toure, Lambert, …

Liverpool's Transfer Window Shopping

Less than a working week to go before the new season gets underway, and Liverpool have played their last two pre-season friendlies, in preparation for the big push. Games against Jürgen Klopp's Borussia Dortmund and Sean Dyche's Burnley, provided Brendan Rodgers's team with their final two tests, in a summer which has taken the Reds to Ireland and the USA, via Preston, before returning to Anfield.

From creators to converters: Who's going to step up for Liverpool FC?

From creators to converters: Who's going to step up for Liverpool FC?

Being at the Dortmund game on Sunday was truly the first time that I thought Liverpool were going to kick on from last season without Luis Suarez. You hear all of the Twitter words of wisdom where people say that the world doesn't end just because Suarez has left - which is true, but still doesn't make you lose the "fear the worst" when you see clips of how many goals he scored last season. It was said at the …

Can Liverpool Afford A World Class Forward?

Can Liverpool Afford A World Class Forward?

This Summer Liverpool has been spending money like it’s going out of fashion. With the unfortunate sale of Luis Suarez to Barcelona, increased TV broadcasting revenue, new commercial deals and champion’s league money the club seems to have more purchasing power than ever before. As we stand, a week before the Premier League kicks off, Liverpool has added 6 players to their ranks and by all accounts are soon to add their seventh with the signing of Moreno. Despite all …

Suso - Should He Stay or Should He Go?

Suso - Should He Stay or Should He Go?

Jesús Joaquín Fernández Sáez de la Torre. You might know him as Suso. A prime example of another young talent in an all too familiar situation. Is there room for him in the squad for the up-coming season or should he be loaned out again? Where would he go? After showing plenty of promise in 2012/13 he was slowly phased out by Rodgers due to the transitional situation of the club not particularly allowing for youth development. Suso has continued …

How the First 10 Games Could Define Liverpool's Season

How the First 10 Games Could Define Liverpool's Season

Anyone who follows me on Twitter will have noticed that I like to break a season down into groups of five games. Why? Well it’s an easy way to monitor how Liverpool are doing in relation to their goals for the season. 2013/14 was all about getting back into the Champions league. I worked out that if Liverpool were achieving 10 out of the 15 points available in every group of five games, they would have a very good chance …
