Adrian already loving Liverpool in his short time at the club

Adrian already loving Liverpool in his short time at the club

Liverpool's new arrival, Adrian, has already enjoyed what he considers one of the best moments of his career at the club, despite arriving less than a month ago. Adrian arrived in early August when it became clear that Liverpool's second-choice goalkeeper, Simon Mignolet, was returning to his homeland with Club Brugge. In the first half of Liverpool's opening Premier League game against Norwich, Alisson suffered a suspected calf-tear and he has been out of action since. Adrian made his entrance …
Klopp Creating Liverpool Siege Mentality

Klopp Creating Liverpool Siege Mentality

Jurgen Klopp reneged on entering into the transfer market this summer to reinforce his first team. Despite links to several players, including Nicolas Pepe and Bruno Fernandes, the German elected to keep his powder dry and not add ready-made first-team options to his squad. Legitimate arguments were made that the European Champions needed to add depth to their squad in the left-back and forward line positions, in particular. But the Anfield club -- doubtlessly under instructions from their hug wielding …

Observations as the Liverpool Escape From St. Mary’s with a Win

Liverpool stayed perfect on the young season with a wild and topsy-turvy 2-1 win over the Saints. Liverpool were equal parts dominant and diabolical as they were lucky to go into the break ahead and then managed to make things difficult at the end despite completely controlling most of the 2nd half. After some brief positive moments early, Liverpool fell under siege to a dogged Southampton side, especially after Milner went off for several minutes with an open cut above …

Southampton 1-2 Liverpool: Who was Man of the Match?

It was a game that every Liverpool fan knew was going to be a struggle. Not only was it an away match against a solid Southampton side, but with the 120 minutes played in midweek added to that, 3 points was looking a difficult ask. The front three were going to have to work their magic and dig us out of a hole, and, thankfully, they did just that - despite Adrian’s best efforts to throw it all away late …

Southampton 1-2 Liverpool - Player Ratings as Reds scrap to St. Mary's win

Given the circumstances, Liverpool came away from a potential banana-skin at St. Mary's with a superb three points, after beating Southampton 2-1, thanks to goals from Sadio Mané and Roberto Firmino. The Reds were dominated for large periods of the first half, but went into the break with Mané's stunning curler putting them in front. Firmino doubled the lead, before an Adrian howler sent the nerves jangling a little bit. But in the end, two and a half days after …

Adrian Adequate As Alisson Absent

After what felt like an interminable wait, Liverpool today gave an update on the Alisson Becker's injury status. The Brazilian keeper was substituted in the 38th minute of the Reds' 4-1 victory over Norwich City at Anfield on Friday night with what was speculated to be a calf injury. Speculation was rife that the former holder of the "world's most expensive goalkeeper" tag would miss an extended period of time, with social media going into panicked overdrive. However, in a …
Adrian Given Huge Early Opportunity to Prove His Worth

Adrian Given Huge Early Opportunity to Prove His Worth

A flying start to the season, but also something to be concerned about. Liverpool are back. The Reds were scintillating at times in their demolition of Norwich, in a first half that epitomised why the Reds are one of the top two sides in Europe. This was a Canaries side who eased to Championship glory last season, scoring 21 more goals from open play than any other side. This was what the step up to the Premier League feels like, …
Premier League Goalkeepers: A Stats Analysis  - Alisson To The Rescue?

Premier League Goalkeepers: A Stats Analysis - Alisson To The Rescue?

The season is finally underway. The transfer window was shut early - Premier League clubs spent over 120 million pounds on goalkeepers, breaking the world record twice. Three of the top six will have new numbers ones in the coming season with Leno, Alisson and Kepa taking the place between the posts for Arsenal, LFC and Chelsea respectively. The market was so inflated that the Reds managed to sell our 25-year-old third choice keeper for 12 million pounds. Danny Ward …
Candidates for Liverpool's MOTM vs West Ham

Candidates for Liverpool's MOTM vs West Ham

Liverpool took one step closer to Champions League qualification for next season with a convincing 4-0 victory away at West Ham. The Reds went into this game knowing they simply had to win their remaining two games against the Hammers and already relegated Middlesbrough to seal Champions League qualification - but it wasn't to be easy against an in form West Ham side. They had kept three consecutive home clean sheets for the first time since 2010 - and with …
