Will Rodgers prevent Liverpool setting all-time unbeaten home record?

Will Rodgers prevent Liverpool setting all-time unbeaten home record?

April 23rd, 2017. Liverpool 1-2 Crystal Palace. Feels like a lifetime ago, doesn't it? At that point, Jurgen Klopp was still only in his first full season as Reds manager and his side hadn't yet played in the Champions League under him. This was still a year before the agony of Kiev, let alone the glorious triumph in Madrid and the Premier League title that followed, and Mo Salah, Andy Robertson, Virgil van Dijk and Alisson weren't yet Liverpool players, …
Thiago Could Be Key To Unlocking Liverpool Midfield Goals

Thiago Could Be Key To Unlocking Liverpool Midfield Goals

The Thiago Alcantara to Liverpool links to burn brightly. Simon Hughes of The Athletic, who is well connected to the club, added another dose of kerosene to the rumours when he reported the Reds are "officially" interested in the Spain international midfielder. If the English champions are indeed to prize the former Barcelona linchpin from FC Bayern, they will be adding a goal threat to their midfield even if Thiago himself -- who has never scored more than six league …
Why Lallana Role Could Offer Thiago Encouragement

Why Lallana Role Could Offer Thiago Encouragement

Jurgen Klopp sprang a surprise in the pre-season of 2018/2019 by using Adam Lallana as the deepest midfielder. Despite the fact the Reds manager hinted at it in the press, Liverpool fans had to pick their jaws off the floor when they saw Lallana -- an attacking midfielder for all his career to date -- lining up against Lyon as the deepest midfielder in a midfield three. Many saw it as a quirk of pre-season, as Klopp mirroring Rafael Benitez …
Is James Milner better than Gary McAllister?

Is James Milner better than Gary McAllister?

James Milner is a Liverpool legend.  A few months into his career at Anfield, it appeared as though he might’ve been more Joe Cole than he was Gary McAllister. For a period of time, it felt as though a Milner performance was a 6/10 and a yellow card was guaranteed. In his defence, though, this was during the final few months of Brendan Rodgers’ time on Merseyside and most, if not all, players failed to really impress.  But then he …
Curtis Jones Could Be Liverpool's New 16/17 Lallana

Curtis Jones Could Be Liverpool's New 16/17 Lallana

If you polled people to ask them the words they most associate with Liverpool's midfield, the descriptions you would mostly see would be "functional, stodgy, obstinant, no-frills." While not always the easiest on the eye -- although, when asked to play progressively, they can weave pretty patterns and pass through opponents with the build-up to Roberto Firmino's goal at Manchester City last season a shining example of this -- the Reds' engine room's effectiveness cannot be disputed. With World, European …
Willian Could Be Liverpool's Second Milner

Willian Could Be Liverpool's Second Milner

With the global COVID-19 pandemic already having a major impact on football finances, the free transfer and loan markets could be used extensively as clubs look to strengthen their squads from a place of diminished monetary power. Liverpool, who will lose on out on both matchday revenue -- with fans, like in every other stadium, unable to attend Anfield for the rest of the season, in the name of virus quelling social distancing -- and TV money -- with all …
Why Mario Gotze could be perfect for Liverpool

Why Mario Gotze could be perfect for Liverpool

“He taught me everything about professional football. He let me play. I often speak to [Jurgen] Klopp. We never stopped talking. He knows me very well and that I am always looking for new challenges.” Mario Gotze, speaking to DAZN earlier this year, left the door ajar on a potential reunion with Klopp. He was on Liverpool’s radar in 2016, too, but opted for a return to Borussia Dortmund at the time.  Speaking in the 2018 documentary, Being Mario Gotze, …
Liverpool's most important win of the Klopp era

Liverpool's most important win of the Klopp era

Liverpool have excelled with Jurgen Klopp at the helm, going from mediocre top-four hopefuls to champions of the world in the space of four years. The German has not only ensured his side play some of the most eye-catching football in the club's history, but has also brought with him a winning mentality that has rubbed off on his players. When looking back at some of the most memorable victories of the Klopp era, there are a number of games …
What should Liverpool do with Naby Keita?

What should Liverpool do with Naby Keita?

When Liverpool beat FC Barcelona, FC Bayern and a host of Europe’s elite to secure the signature of Naby Keita it was heralded as a coup. The Guinean captain was a whirlwind in the middle third for RB Leipzig in the Bundesliga and appeared to be the definition of a box-to-box midfielder. He scored goals. He made assists. He racked up tackles and interceptions at an alarming rate (4.81 during his final season in Germany), and his dribbling figures were …
4231 The Antidote to Liverpool's Recent Woes

4231 The Antidote to Liverpool's Recent Woes

Liverpool's recent form -- if not totally reflected in results -- has taken a nosedive. Losing 3 of their last 5 games across three competitions, the Reds have looked slow of both body and mind, despite having a 10 day respite from games thanks to the Premier League's winter break. Victories over Norwich -- the game which preceded the break -- and West Ham United -- the first league game after their temporary hiatus -- came in spite of laboured …
