Player Ratings as Liverpool Beat Norwich 4-1

Player Ratings as Liverpool Beat Norwich 4-1

Liverpool kicked off the 2019/20 Premier League season with a 4-1 win over newly-promoted Norwich. A bit of the old Liverpool came out with some very dodgy moments defensively, but, fortunately, the attack was at its scintillating best and was extremely clinical in the first half. There’s some work to be done for Jurgen Klopp’s men as you would expect a better side to punish us more with the chances afforded to the Canaries. However, the biggest cause for concern …
Lovren Exit Could Pave The Way For Prospects

Lovren Exit Could Pave The Way For Prospects

Liverpool defender Dejan Lovren has continuously been linked with a move to Italy this summer. The Croatian centre half, 30, was a rumoured target for A.C. Milan, with the Rossoneri apparently eager to lend a central defender this summer. Now, however, it appears the San Siro side have competition for the former Southampton and Lyon man's signature from their Serie A rival's, AS Roma. According to a report in La Gazzetta Dello Sport, Roma have turned their attentions towards Lovren …
Lessons Learned From Liverpool FC's American Tour

Lessons Learned From Liverpool FC's American Tour

Liverpool completed their pre-season tour of The United States with a 2-2 draw against Sporting CP in Yankee Stadium, New York in the early hours of Thursday morning. The draw was the Reds' third game of their tour, and the first game they didn't taste defeat in after falling to Borussia Dortmund in Indiana and Sevilla in Boston's Fenway Park. As was the case in European Champions' previous off-season jaunts across The Atlantic, the tour can be considered a commercial …
Wilson, Woodburn & Kent: What next for Liverpool's young trio?

Wilson, Woodburn & Kent: What next for Liverpool's young trio?

Liverpool wouldn't feel like Liverpool if supporters weren't airing some sort of grievance relating to the club, even at this wonderful time. The current grievance of choice is the Reds' summer transfer activity, which has seen them sign just one player so far: young Dutch centre-back Sepp van den Berg. There is a frustrating element to Liverpool's business, without question, with fans desperate for Jurgen Klopp's men to kick on and make the most of being European champions. While the …
There's So Much More to Football Than Winning

There's So Much More to Football Than Winning

There are very few seasons in recent memory as gripping as the 2018/19 campaign. Gritty, determined, and in a few moments, utterly magical, the season will live long in the hearts and minds of Liverpool fans. But what made it so special, was it simply just the victory in the Champions League final? It seems strange to reduce a season which featured an unprecedented league performance, and moments of bedlam, induced in no less than four occasions by Divock Origi, …
Why Liverpool Can Win Number 7 In 2019-20

Why Liverpool Can Win Number 7 In 2019-20

The Champions’ League triumph of 2018-19 was full to the brim with iconic moments that will be remembered forever in the history of Liverpool Football Club. The Alisson save in the dying moments against Napoli, the audacious Trent Alexander-Arnold corner in the seemingly impossible comeback against Barcelona at Anfield and, of course, the Origi finish late on in Madrid, to name just a handful. These events will live eternally in the memories of all Liverpool fans, and rightfully so. However, …
Liverpool Players At The Forefront of Brazilian Success

Liverpool Players At The Forefront of Brazilian Success

Brazil sailed through to the Copa America final with a 2-0 victory over their eternal rivals, Argentina, on Tuesday night, thanks in no small part to Liverpool players. It is a testament to Liverpool’s growth in recent years that they have players playing in key roles for a footballing powerhouse like Brazil. Goals from Manchester’s City’s Gabriel Jesus and Liverpool’s Roberto Firmino further extended Lionel Messi’s wait for international silverware with Argentina. The diminutive Barcelona number ten tried his hardest …
Why a lack of signings is a positive sign of the times

Why a lack of signings is a positive sign of the times

As we turn over another page in our calendars and find ourselves in July, it's hard to believe just quite the position Liverpool are in. If you'd have told any Red when they were flipping the yearly planners over to July 2018 that, in 12 months time, Liverpool would be the reigning champions of Europe after missing out on the Premier League title by a solitary point, I'm sure the vast majority would have sold their soul to make that …
Liverpool Uncovered: Tier 1 Transfer Tales

Liverpool Uncovered: Tier 1 Transfer Tales

Sometimes the people that care about you the most tell you lies. Yes. It’s true. Or, I might be lying right now, because I do care, dear reader. I really do... Sometimes my wife tells me that my hair looks like it’s growing back or that I’ll eventually fit into my pants again. My parents would tell me my pet fish just liked to sleep upside-down, yet Sharky always seemed suspiciously refreshed after the pet-store opened. The people we trust …
Has Oxlade-Chamberlain Become Over-hyped?

Has Oxlade-Chamberlain Become Over-hyped?

Jurgen Klopp has assembled arguably the most likeable Liverpool squad in memory. Whereas in the past, supporters would have a small selection of genuine heroes to choose from, they are now spoiled for choice. Everywhere you look, there are superb, Champions League-winning footballers who are also warm, down-to-earth characters, from Alisson in goal right the way through to Sadio Mane in attack. One player who manages to even stand out from this crowd is Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain: a loveable person and …
