Curtis Jones primed for starring role at Liverpool in 2020/21

Curtis Jones primed for starring role at Liverpool in 2020/21

It is a rare thing to see a young Scouser make the grade at Liverpool, backing up their early promise and becoming a hero to millions around the world. Trent Alexander-Arnold is the most recent homegrown talent to become a star at Anfield, but it has been slim pickings for many years. For every Alexander-Arnold, there are many who aren't good enough, whether it be Jon Flanagan, Jay Spearing or Jordan Rossiter, not to mention the endless individuals who aren't …
Is Trent Alexander-Arnold a generational talent?

Is Trent Alexander-Arnold a generational talent?

Remember a few years back when Trent Alexander-Arnold had that one bad game against Manchester United? It’s the reason rival fans say the Liverpool right-back isn’t a good defender. Marcus Rashford netted twice and, if we’re being completely honest, Alexander-Arnold was flat-footed for the opener.  By no means was it entirely his fault but rivals fans needed something to latch onto and this was it. Since that day, he’s been labelled as a defensive risk. People choose to ignore his …
Kostas Tsimikas In Perfect Developmental Environment

Kostas Tsimikas In Perfect Developmental Environment

Liverpool addressed their depth issue at left-back when they completed the signing of Kostas Tsimikas from Olympiacos on M0nday. The 24-year-old Greek international moves to Anfield for a fee in the region of £11,000,000 and will act as the understudy Andrew Robertson. Given the emphasis placed on the Reds' full-backs to create, their role is energy consuming -- more so than other areas in the team -- and having an adequate back up to Robertson -- as well as Trent …
Kirkby, Harvey Elliott and Liverpool's New Transfer Strategy

Kirkby, Harvey Elliott and Liverpool's New Transfer Strategy

Jurgen Klopp wants a 'team full of Scousers'. His proclamation, made during the press-conference before July's win at Brighton, gives a hint towards Liverpool's future transfer strategy. The club will make less big-name signings, and instead develop a host of talent through their new Kirkby facility. It is a process that will make the club more coherent and sustainable. The new training ground at Kirkby nears completion. It is a £50 million behemoth, with facilities to match any in world …
Trent & Robbo display greatness on memorable night for Liverpool

Trent & Robbo display greatness on memorable night for Liverpool

You're winning 4-3 late in the day in a match that ultimately doesn't mean too much, having already clinched the Premier League title. You could be forgiven for not quite giving your all, right? Not this Liverpool team, though, who have been drilled to perfection by Jurgen Klopp, and who have continued to show their incredible desire after their title win, despite the odd poor result. Chelsea earned a late free-kick on Wednesday night, as they looked to complete an …
In Defence Of Bobby Firmino

In Defence Of Bobby Firmino

Admittedly, Roberto Firmino ought to score more goals. But you know who else falls into that category? Every footballer who has ever laced a pair of boots up. Much has been made of the Brazilian's recent domestic goal drought at Anfield -- which, at the time of writing, extends to 18 Premier League games -- and much of it, weirdly, has come from Liverpool fans who should know better. Jurgen Klopp, pundits and ex-players -- with Thierry Henry always effusive …

Liverpool Bounce Back With Unconvincing Win

Liverpool Bounce Back With Unconvincing Win

Liverpool continued their 100% winning streak in the Premier League this season with a hard fought 2-0 win over Aston Villa at Anfield. Goals from Sadio Mane and Curtis Jones gave the Reds a perhaps flattering win after a stodgy performance against their relegation-threatened visitors. After their drubbing at Manchester City, there was an expectation of a backlash but the Reds’ performance was the antithesis of that. Slow, plodding — littered with poor touches and worse passes — and playing …
Key Stats from another goalless derby at Goodison

Key Stats from another goalless derby at Goodison

Liverpool were back in Premier League action for the first time in over three months and it was an absolutely rubbish game of football. A 0-0 draw at Goodison Park feels like a story we’ve heard before, and sadly Liverpool’s wait for the title will now extend beyond their home game against Crystal Palace on Wednesday as they dropped points for just the third time all season. The Lovren Effect Dejan Lovren replaced the injured Joël Matip with fifteen minutes …
Player ratings as Liverpool complete annual Goodison draw

Player ratings as Liverpool complete annual Goodison draw

The Premier League is well and truly back. Excitement at seeing Keita in the team, Milner picking up a needless yellow and Liverpool drawing 0-0 at Goodison Park. Almost like we never stopped, right? Admittedly not the best game ever for the neutral, Everton should have won truth be told. Still, we have an actual game of football to analyse, so let's get going with the ratings. Alisson dazzles Alisson Becker (8): If this game is played similarly three months ago, …
