Tyler Morton - An Opportunity To Shine

Tyler Morton - An Opportunity To Shine

Robbie Fowler, Steve McManaman, Michael Owen, Steven Gerrard, Jamie Carragher and Trent Alexander Arnold all graduated through the Liverpool academy. The success of each is part of the clubs illustrious history, and it is always a joy to see homegrown talent succeed as Liverpool players. Within any historical football club, there are times when talent struggles to emerge due to the level of competition. There has been multiple false hopes in my lifetime, but there is still excitement when any …
The Player Ratings: Liverpool 4 - 0 Arsenal

The Player Ratings: Liverpool 4 - 0 Arsenal

Alisson Becker - 7.5 Mistakes will come now and again, but the world's best stopper showed a commanding presence in a routine display. Trent Alexander Arnold - 9.5 Sensational. The teams primary playmaker is transcending the fullback position. Any manager in world football (club football anyway) would have this man over any other, and his domination of the right hand side is becoming an on going problem for the opposition. Two great assists. Kostas Tsimikas - 7.5 He had the …
Assessing Andy Robertson's 2021/22 Form

Assessing Andy Robertson's 2021/22 Form

Andy Robertson's place in Liverpool's starting line-up is under intense scrutiny. Over the past few weeks, maybe even the past couple of months, the calls for Kostas Tsimikas to replace him have grown progressively louder. Before the season began, I'd argue that the only position up for debate in Liverpool's strongest XI was centre-forward, but with Tsimikas displaying his capabilities and Robertson failing to hit the heights, Roberto Firmino isn't the only stalwart looking over his shoulder. This should, of …

Liverpool’s Magnificent Seven

Liverpool’s Magnificent Seven

I recently watched the remake of the Magnificent Seven, a modern take of the original classic. The film revolves around impossibly unrealistic scenarios, a suicide squad of unlikely heroes, with a battle to overcome the odds and succeed. The plot of the film is ridiculous, how the movie then plays out absurd, but the idea of magnificent individuals being required to overcome the greatest of obstacles, not so far fetched. Fenway Sports Group have chosen their means of running the …
Trent Alexander-Arnold - Next Season Awaits

Trent Alexander-Arnold - Next Season Awaits

To even consider that Trent Alexander-Arnold was to be omitted from England’s summer competition, is quite astounding. There are few players in the world football that can deliver a ball with his precision and assist in such audacious ways. Gareth Southgate inevitably saw sense, though that tournament was taken away by a cruel injury this last week, to England’s and Trents bad fortune. Trent Alexander-Arnold has for the most part (in his short career), been a sensation under Jurgen Klopp. …
After Trent's injury, Henderson's fitness a huge concern during Euros

After Trent's injury, Henderson's fitness a huge concern during Euros

As news of Trent's injury on England duty final settles in, anxieties around his team mate Jordan Henderson and his fitness as Euro 2021 looms. The quad tear suffered by Liverpool's number 66 rules him out of the first few weeks of pre-season in a hammer blow for the right back. In the drama surrounding Southgate's will he, won't he on Trent's inclusion and then subsequent injury has perhaps drawn attention away from the concerns that surround Henderson's inclusion in …
Second Season Tsimikas To Enjoy Further Responsibility

Second Season Tsimikas To Enjoy Further Responsibility

On the surface, the signing of Kostas Tsimikas really hasn't worked out for Liverpool. Signed from Olympiacos in the summer of 2020, the Greek left-back -- whose acquisition was aimed at giving Andy Robertson the opportunity to rest -- only made seven appearances in all competitions in his first season on Merseyside. Meanwhile, Robertson played in every single Premier League fixture, clocking up an energy-sapping 3,368 minutes in the process of the most condensed season of all time. The Scotland …
Thiago and TAA Understanding Paves Way For Bright Future

Thiago and TAA Understanding Paves Way For Bright Future

Thiago Alcantara was sublime in Liverpool's 2-1 victory away to West Bromwich Albion last Sunday. Following on from an impressive performance in the Reds' 4-2 win over Manchester United at Old Trafford a few days previously, the Spanish international provided a creative spark and dogged defensive diligence that the away team needed in a tough encounter with the Baggies. Completing 91% of his passes, accurately spraying five out of eight of his attempted long balls, and creating five chances, the …
England Exclusion Fires Trent Alexander Arnold Into Top Form

England Exclusion Fires Trent Alexander Arnold Into Top Form

Trent Alexander Arnold's name was a notable absence from Gareth Southgate's England squad for March's international window. The 22-year-old full-back was left out of the Three Lions' picture for their World Cup qualifiers with San Marino, Albania, and Poland, with Kyle Walker, Reece James, and Kieran Trippier preferred. The decision to leave the Champions League and Premier League medalist out of the national team reckoning was greeted with confusion, with Jurgen Klopp leading the chorus of objections. Yes, his season …
