Could Mohammed Kudus Be The Answer?

Could Mohammed Kudus Be The Answer?

With the World Cup now in full swing, there will be various names touted as players the Reds should sign. With the recent news that our recruitment department will soon be reshaped, it just adds to the on going saga of new ownership and how the club will operate in a few months time. For the moment however, Liverpool need to remain both proactive and decisive in the transfer market, and add at least one body to the midfield group …
Ajax 0 - 3 Liverpool - CL Man of the Match

Ajax 0 - 3 Liverpool - CL Man of the Match

Andrew Robertson Playing in a new 4-4-2 diamond shape, Robertson had the entire left wing to himself in Amsterdam, and he did well at both ends of the pitch, covering against some dangerous Ajax attacks, and providing energy and forward momentum offensively. His assist for Nunez's goal was a superbly taken corner. Despite the struggles of the season so far, the Reds are now safely through to the Champions League knockouts, and they will need the rampaging Scot to put …

Ajax 0 - 3 Liverpool - Champions League Player Ratings

Starting XI Alisson Becker - 7.0 Started well, could do little but cover his angles as the ball struck the post in the opening moments, and looked steady enough through the opening stages. Was mostly untested as the reds took control through the second half. Trent Alexander Arnold- 7.0 Back in as a starter, he looked unsure on the ball and tentative early on in his defensive work. Nearly created a big chance early on with a lazy inside ball. …
Ajax v Liverpool - The Champions League Preview

Ajax v Liverpool - The Champions League Preview

Liverpool come into this game needing a point to qualify for the next phase of the Champions League. Both wins against Rangers were as expected, but it was the Reds' home win against Ajax which has allowed them a chance to qualify with a game to spare. Napoli are one of the form teams in Europe, and to need something from their final group game (at home to Napoli) is undesirable at best. With a dreadful weekend loss at Nottingham …

Liverpool 2 - 1 Ajax - Player Ratings Alisson Becker - 7.0 Great ball for the first goal, and looked assured from the outset. Great distribution and couldn’t do nothing for the opening goal. Had a good steady game. Trent Alexander-Arnold - 7.0 Looked bright & determined from the start. Lost his man for their opening goal, and should have been more alert to stop the through ball. Was good going forward, but still had issues in his defensive duties. …
How This Period Can Recalibrate The Reds

How This Period Can Recalibrate The Reds

I work in mechanical engineering, and it means I often have to use various devices in order to test that which requires inspection. Having been in the industry for close to 25 years, I’m pretty aware when something isn’t quite right, and how to adjust. In order to maintain certain levels, pretty much all instrumentation requires a yearly calibration in order to fine tune the apparatus. An engineers' worth is often graded by his ability to overcome problems (or unearth …

Jan Molby - Liverpool’s Amazing Dane

The older you get, the more and more you appreciate fantastic memories from your past. As children we would sometimes be baffled by our parents' preference for ‘ancient’ music, movies or celebrities from their own youth. As I close in my 40th birthday, I acknowledge that I have become that very person, and fully appreciate the comfort and warmth my memories bring. I’m happy to relive the 1980’s through both music and film, and within the Liverpool FC universe, this …
Liverpool Academy Efficiency Highlighted in Ajax Win

Liverpool Academy Efficiency Highlighted in Ajax Win

With justification, Ajax are considered one of the best talent producing clubs in world football. Footballing luminaries such as Johan Cruijff, Marco van Basten, Dennis Bergkamp and Wesley Sneijder, among many others, have cut their footballing teeth in the Amsterdam club's academy system. But in Liverpool's 1-0 Champions League victory over Ajax last Tuesday, it was the Merseyside club's homegrown players who stood up and tilted the game in the favour of the Anfield team. Caoimhin Kelleher, Curtis Jones and …
Tactical Breakdown: Liverpool 1-0 Ajax

Tactical Breakdown: Liverpool 1-0 Ajax

After last week's home defeat to Atalanta - Liverpool's twelfth loss at Anfield in the European Cup/Champions League - Group D was suddenly fraught with unexpected possibilities. Jürgen Klopp's men, amidst a biblical injury crisis, needed to settle their European affairs as soon as possible, but given the nature of recent performances and the strength of Ajax, victory was by no means a foregone conclusion. The Reds set up in a 4-3-3, with Salah and Mané flanking Jota, in place …
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 …
