Liverpool's No D*ckhead Policy Paying Dividends

Liverpool's No D*ckhead Policy Paying Dividends

Liverpool took their first tentative steps towards restarting their campaign when small groups of players took part in non-contact training at Melwood yesterday, Wednesday. What was noticeable among the players was that the usually impeccably coiffured hair of some of the squad's members -- the Brazilian duo of Alisson and Firmino, particularly -- had grown untamed without access to barbers during lockdown. Now, trying to garner any information about a person's personality based off how they keep their hair is …
Can Alexander-Arnold be England MVP at ‘Euro 2021’?

Can Alexander-Arnold be England MVP at ‘Euro 2021’?

No matter which generation you come from, it is hard to remember a time when such a young core of England players held so much promise. As such, the postponement of Euro 2020 would have been felt most deeply by England players who are still under the age of 23 but playing with a sense of professionalism way beyond their years. It goes without saying that Trent Alexander-Arnold, who is already a Champions League medal recipient, falls within that group …
One Year On: The Game Where Alisson Showed His Worth

One Year On: The Game Where Alisson Showed His Worth

Liverpool is a club synonymous with historical nights in European football and this week we looked back on the first anniversary of arguably one of the greatest of those we'll ever see. Somehow the Reds overturned a 3-0 first leg deficit against Barcelona to make it to their second successive Champion League final after a 4-0 victory. While it's hard not to think of the contributions of the likes of super sub Gini Wijnaldum, Trent's quick thinking for the corner …

What Makes The Reds So Great - Part 1

Before the worldwide coronavirus pandemic ground the Premier League season to what we are assured is a temporary halt, Liverpool looked set to win the league title at a canter. Winning 27 out of their 29 games, the Reds -- who have beaten every other team in the league on their remarkable run -- find themselves a full 25 points ahead of second-place Manchester City and, mathematically, only need two more wins to claim the clubs’ 19th league success and …

Best games of 2019/20: Liverpool 2 - 0 Manchester United

As sport across the world continues to quite rightly take a back-seat, it provides a perfect platform to revel in some of Liverpool's finest moments of the season to date. While it may only provide a small silver lining to what are undoubtedly dark days, there's not a lot better than thinking back to some memorable fixtures in this glittering season so far. Last time, I focused on Liverpool's 0 - 4 Boxing Day bullying of Leicester City, but this …

Best games of 2019/20: Leicester 0 - 4 Liverpool

The current authority-imposed hiatus from football due to the ever-saddening Coronavirus outbreak gives us all time to reflect on a plethora of subjects. Inevitably, for those obsessed with football and the thought of Liverpool finally claiming that Premier League title, thoughts turn to some of the Reds' stand-out performances of what has been a marvellous season. There have been so many moments of magic and significance that it's impossible to say one moment trumps all others, but for me (and …
Liverpool 2-1 Bournemouth: Who Was Man of the Match?

Liverpool 2-1 Bournemouth: Who Was Man of the Match?

Liverpool move to within 9 points of the Premier League title after a 2-1 win over Bournemouth at Anfield. Once again, it wasn’t the most convincing of victories, with the referee and VAR conspiring to award Bournemouth a controversial opening goal. The Mentality Monsters returned, though, turning the game on its head to come away with all three points. In goal, Adrian replaced the injured Alisson and the Spaniard had to put his mistake at Chelsea quickly out of his …

Liverpool 2-1 Bournemouth - Player Ratings as scratchy Reds go one step closer to the title

Liverpool beat Bournemouth 2-1 at Anfield in the early kickoff to go to within three wins of the Premier League title, after goals from Mo Salah and Sadio Mane ensured that Callum Wilson's early goal for the Cherries was nothing but a little blip on the road. The Reds were well below-par, though, and need to be much better on Wednesday night when Atletico Madrid come to Anfield, in the Champions League Round of 16 second leg. Here's how each …
Liverpool Regain Winning Ways With Bournemouth Victory

Liverpool Regain Winning Ways With Bournemouth Victory

Liverpool came from a goal behind to register their first win in three games in all competitions with a 2-1 victory over Bournemouth at Anfield. Callum Wilson gave the relegation threatened visitors the lead in controversial style, when the striker clearly pushed Joe Gomez in the back in the build up to his goal, with VAR inexplicably allowing the effort to stand. However, goals from Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mane gave the Reds the win, despite a nervy and slack …

Dwight McNeil Liverpool's Outside the Box Backup LB

Looking at Liverpool's squad, it is clear to see that the Reds aren't afraid to think outside the box when developing players into new tactical roles. After all, Georginio Wijnaldum, Trent Alexander Arnold and Roberto Firmino -- three of the European Champions' most important players -- either signed for the club or played their formative years in different positions and or roles than those they now occupy in Jurgen Klopp's juggernauts. Wijnaldum, who operated mostly as an attacking midfielder -- …
