Liverpool Reserve Goalkeeper Renews Anfield Contract

Liverpool Reserve Goalkeeper Renews Anfield Contract

Liverpool goalkeeper Adrián has put pen to paper on a contract extension to keep him at the club for a possible two more years. Adrián, 34, joined Liverpool on a free transfer in the summer of 2019 after being released by West Ham United. He went on to play a crucial role in the early part of Liverpool's 2019/20 campaign after Alisson Becker suffered an injury against Norwich City on the opening night of the season. Since then, Adrián has …
Liverpool's midfield vs Chelsea: A selection headache at long last

Liverpool's midfield vs Chelsea: A selection headache at long last

There was much to admire about Liverpool's 2-0 victory over Sheffield United, as the Reds made a welcome return to winning ways. Adrian, Nat Phillips and Ozan Kabak largely did well against a physical Blades attack, while Trent Alexander-Arnold looked somewhere close to his best again. Gini Wijnaldum and Thiago purred in midfield, the front-three looked more vibrant as a unit, and of course, Curtis Jones was the star of the show. One of the most heartwarming aspects was the …
Why Klopp opted for Kelleher over Adrian

Why Klopp opted for Kelleher over Adrian

A few weeks back now, Jamie Carragher analysed what has happened to Liverpool’s defensive line since Virgil van Dijk’s injury on Monday Night Football. There was a belief that without the Dutchman, the Reds would retreat a little. There have been subtle tweaks but these haven’t been anywhere near as drastic as many had expected.  In his feature, Carragher talked about the backline’s preemptive positioning. Without the recovery pace of Van Dijk and Joe Gomez, Liverpool have stopped trying to …
He's Not Perfect, But He's Ours

He's Not Perfect, But He's Ours

I just want to make a point, a point that should be obvious to all Liverpool supporters, but something that seems to be lost in the reactionary atmosphere in which we live these days. Adrian. Adrian is our back-up keeper. If he was good enough to be a top-6 keeper elsewhere, he would be. But he's with us, he's a Red, and he loves being a Red! He saved a penalty to win us the UEFA Super Cup in August …
Ajax 0-1 Liverpool: Who Was Man of the Match?

Ajax 0-1 Liverpool: Who Was Man of the Match?

Liverpool made a solid start to their 2020/21 Champions League campaign with a 1-0 victory over Ajax at the Johan Cruyff Arena. It wasn’t the most convincing of wins, with the Reds requiring a strange own-goal from Nicolas Tagliafico to win them the game. Nevertheless, after a couple of scary moments at the back, Liverpool defended quite well and came away with a much-needed clean sheet.   In goal, he was at it again. Adrian made one good save to deny Quincy Promes …
Ajax 0-1 Liverpool: Player ratings as Reds battle to three Group D points

Ajax 0-1 Liverpool: Player ratings as Reds battle to three Group D points

Liverpool ended their run of three games without a win by doggedly beating Ajax. Nicolas Tagliafico's clumsy own-goal was ultimately the difference, though Davy Klaassen hit the post and Liverpool spurned opportunities of their own in the closing stages. Here's how the Reds rated in Amsterdam... Adrian - 7 It was far from a confident start - the mix-up with Gomez and the flashbacks to the howler at Southampton - and the finish was nervy as well, a flapped punch …
Blaming Adrian is a Gross Oversight of Liverpool’s Worrying Trend at the Back

Blaming Adrian is a Gross Oversight of Liverpool’s Worrying Trend at the Back

Almost five billion people from various parts of the globe tune in to watch the Premier League every season. Thanks to the advent of social media, Twitter, in particular, there isn’t any place to hide for any of the Premier League’s stars should they make a mistake. If they do, meme after meme will follow as Twitter users pile on and tend to ignore mitigating circumstances. Adrian was the latest footballer to experience the nasty side of Twitter after Liverpool shipped seven …
Observations as Liverpool robbed against Everton

Observations as Liverpool robbed against Everton

Liverpool drew 2-2 at Goodison Park in a typically tempestuous and controversial Merseyside derby. Sadio Mané and Mo Salah twice gave Liverpool the lead, before goals from Michael Keane and Dominic Calvert-Lewin snatched a point for the Blues. But it was two marginal offside decisions that decided the game, as Jordan Pickford avoided a red card and Jordan Henderson’s late winner was chalked off. Here are the observations from the game: Liverpool aren’t as good defensively without their two best …
Liverpool Robbed By VAR In Goodison Derby

Liverpool Robbed By VAR In Goodison Derby

VAR controversy abounded as Liverpool were robbed of a late 3-2 victory over Everton at Goodison Park. With the game squared at 2-2 going into injury time, a perfectly good Jordan Henderson goal -- supposedly because Sadio Mané was offside, an assertion that had no evidence in tv pictures -- was disallowed and Everton hung on for a scantly deserved point. The Reds, whose performance was -- in the large part -- was excellent recovered well from their debacle at …
