Virgil - In the Conversation

Virgil - In the Conversation

At £75 million, the rhetoric surrounding Virgil Van Dijk’s move to Liverpool (from Southampton) was often one of surprise. There would have been a fair portion of Reds fans that saw the deal as overly expensive, but it was the remainder of the football supporting community that sniggered at the deal. There were fans everywhere, stating that Virgil was an overrated defender, and that the fee in no way justified the signing. The likes of Harry Maguire were often held …

The Looming Speculations Behind Liverpool’s Transfer Radar

The midfield area has played an important part in Liverpool’s Road to success. However, a number of these players have not yet renewed their contacts. It includes Nerby Keita, Chamberlain and James Milner. Their contracts expire in 2023. The transfer move of Wijnaldum to Liverpool forced Klopp to turn to his youngsters Tyler Morton, Harvey Elliot and Curtis Jones to fill in. A job they have done with perfection. However, with the potential exit of three midfield players, the club’s …

Euro Incision: The Perfect Champions League Draw

It was Nina and regular Euro Incision podcast guest, Themis Kessaris, on this edition of the show. The obvious topic of conversation was last week's Champions League draw for the last eight, the semi-final's and even which team would be classified as the 'home' team in the final. Themis was particularly delighted with the outcome, and when questioned about how he would rate the draw by Nina at the start of the pod, his answer was emphatic! The possible scenario …

Post-Match RAW: Into The FA Cup Last Four & How to Judge Jota

Cup rotation took place at the weekend, and not just in the Liverpool team to face Nottingham Forest as Guy Drinkel replaced Trevor Downey as host of Post-Match RAW, and Lisa-Marie Hanahan plus Dave Horrocks joined stalwart Dave Hendrick to look back at the narrow victory in the FA Cup quarter-final.  Because of the many changes in the Reds' team it led to plenty of debate about the futures of some of these players on the fringes of Klopp's …
Nottingham Forest 0 - 1 Liverpool - Man Of The Match

Nottingham Forest 0 - 1 Liverpool - Man Of The Match

Joe Gomez A brilliant defender, that is simply part of an elite group of defenders. His versatility allowed him a rare start, and he gave his very best throughout. A clearly different version to Trent’s world class level, but Joe was intent on making a strong impression. Some strong running and smart passing was even dent throughout, and he far outshone Kostas at left. Showed great willingness to give width, tremendous energy throughout, and covered his centre backs with a …
Nottingham Forest 0 - 1 Liverpool - The Player Ratings

Nottingham Forest 0 - 1 Liverpool - The Player Ratings

Alisson Becker - 7.5 A busier game than he could have envisioned, with a few moments of frantic play engulfing his penalty box. A clean sheet, some smart saves, and a semi-final awaits the giant Brazilian. Joe Gomez - 8.0 A very good game for the England defender. Was understandably lacking in the normal Trent style attacking sense, but any hesitation in possession was made up for with energy and intent. His covering pace got him out of danger when …
Bobby & The Etihad Corral

Bobby & The Etihad Corral

The gunfight at the O.K Corral is an historical moment that has been retold many times over, throughout various western movies. Depending on your age, movies that still seem fairly modern to me will probably be deemed ancient by the generations born after me. Tombstone was a brilliant film that had every scene stolen by Val Kilmer, as the notorious gunslinger, Doc Holiday. This man was a peculiar man, that had a charming manner and bespoke ability in particular situations. …
Are Liverpool perfectly poised to overtake City down the final stretch? 

Are Liverpool perfectly poised to overtake City down the final stretch? 

The Reds were written off far too early in this season’s league title race, and now due to a combination of a trademark Klopp charge and consistency on their part and signs of a Manchester City side starting to falter, it will go right down to the wire. All eyes are focussed on the 10th April game between the two sides, but the fixtures after that match will play an equally big part in where the title will go. There …

Post-Match RAW: Klopp The Master, Poundland Pep & The Morbid Brothers

Before the match, hosts Arsenal were in a run of form they've not seen for years, putting themselves in pole position to qualify for the Champions League. Nevertheless, they were playing against the form side in Premier League (and Europe) as Liverpool travelled to London to face the Gunners. On Post-Match RAW, Trevor hosted Dave Hendrick and Jim Boardman for the instant reaction to what ended up being quite a comfortable victory in the end. First up was the idea, …
Key Stats as Liverpool disarm the Gunners

Key Stats as Liverpool disarm the Gunners

The juggernaut rolled though the Emirates and didn't stop, thanks to goals from Diogo Jota and Roberto Firmino. But what were the key stats as the Reds got to within one point of Manchester City? Silence, then thunder https://twitter.com/markstatsbot/status/1504218728644313089?s=12 Not much happened in the first half. Both teams had few shots, none of which was particularly dangerous. The xG scores were 0.10 to Arsenal and 0.19 to Liverpool, a good indicator of how little action there was in both boxes. …
