Champions League Dreams - For Liverpool, not City!

Champions League Dreams - For Liverpool, not City!

A few of my writings over the years have had reference to songs or movies of old. This one is no different. As it’s a blockbuster tie, there’s only one way to go which is Frankie Goes to Hollywood!!! We've two legs coming up against Manchester City. The fun all starts at Anfield on Wednesday 4th April. So, with that in mind... “Welcome to the Pleasuredome!” Are we ready to stand and be counted? Many a time in the annals …
Roberto Firmino - How Good Is He?

Roberto Firmino - How Good Is He?

Bobby Firmino. A player with so much to offer Liverpool. Bobby is a huge component of what Jürgen Klopp is trying to build for so many reasons, and he’s having an absolutely terrific season as he starts to fulfil his potential in this team. Whilst Mo Salah has been rightfully grabbing the majority of the headlines, Bobby has been doing what Bobby does best: going about his work. And now many are starting to reckon that Liverpool’s number nine is …

Liverpool v Manchester City Preview - Key Battles

After what seems like forever, Liverpool have had a whole week between two games, and the break couldn't have come at a better time than in the lead-up to a game against Manchester City, who have made a mockery of the Premier League this season. City have only dropped points twice this season but come into this game having not won at Anfield since 2003. For Jurgen Klopp's Reds, it has been an eventful week with a dream Virgil van …

Is Mohamed Salah's start to the season being underplayed?

Is Mohamed Salah's start to the season being underplayed?

When Liverpool signed Mohamed Salah for £36.9m on 22nd June 2017 it wasn’t to the kind of fanfare one would expect for a club record signing. Sure, many Liverpool supporters were made up with the transfer, but it didn’t feel huge in its magnitude. It didn’t reverberate around the league. Certainly when you consider what was to follow. By the end of the transfer window, Mo Salah would prove to be only the 10th most expensive signing of the summer. …

Fantasy Premier League Insight: GW9 - City Flying

With GW8 behind us, let's reflect on what transpired and MY WORD! what a game week. All the focus was on Anfield as two Juggernauts did battle; the match itself was a let down as it finished honours even. The games to follow produced some of the more unexpected results Man City once again showed us why they are pretty much nailed on for the title, smacking seven goals past Stoke City. Even with Aguero out, City assets just keep …
Roberto Firmino Threatening To Silence His Admirers

Roberto Firmino Threatening To Silence His Admirers

Roberto Firmino is a wonderful footballer - let’s start off by acknowledging that. After a slow start to life at Liverpool, due mainly to Brendan Rodgers expecting him to shine as a right winger, the Brazilian has become a key figure. The 4-1 win away to Man City in November 2015 was the first time we saw exactly what he can offer, both on and off the ball, and he has thrilled us ever since. To many, he is the …

Fantasy Premier League Insight: GW7 - Strikers Paradise

When was the last time we had 5 dominating strikers in #FPL  (Kane, Aguero, Lukaku, Lacazette, Morata) While the holy trinity of Kane, Aguero and Lukaku were absolute MUST haves going into GW6, were you really surprised when #FPL threw another curve ball with Morata and Lacazette stepping up with 17 and 13 points respectively? I honestly can't think of another season where we've had this many strikers performing well at the same time; it definitely has the feel of …

Manchester City 5 - 0 Liverpool: Player Ratings

A game whose result was decided by one reckless challenge and the Reds' heads just dropped. The Reds were royally whipped by an all star City team, leading to Klopp's heaviest defeat in his reign as Liverpool manager. (Considering how Liverpool and Klopp had given up on the game in the second half, we need to take these ratings with a pinch of salt) Simon Mignolet (6): Restored to the lineup, the keeper had a very busy first half, pulling …
