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, …
Lacklustre derby should reinvigorate lethargic Liverpool

Lacklustre derby should reinvigorate lethargic Liverpool

After waiting eagerly for 106 days for Liverpool to get back into action, the Merseyside derby was in all honesty quite a languid affair. The hype far outweighed the action, as Liverpool toiled but rarely troubled Everton, who had the better chances at Goodison Park, but the spoils were shared as Merseyside welcomed back Premier League football. There were positives to take on the short trip back to Anfield; Naby Keita looked incredibly sharp and was easily Liverpool's stand-out man. …
Liverpool Is Back! Sort of...

Liverpool Is Back! Sort of...

When the upcoming fixture list gets released, one of the biggest matches of the season is always Everton at Goodison Park. It is a match that carries great importance for the city and supporters of each side. As the first match back for both Liverpool and Everton since the Premier League shut down due to the coronavirus, the Merseyside Derby carried with it even more meaning this time around. As Jurgen Klopp has said, football is often the most important …
Everton 0-0 Liverpool: Who Was Man of the Match?

Everton 0-0 Liverpool: Who Was Man of the Match?

After over 100 days without seeing the Reds in action in the Premier League, we were treated to as drab a derby as you’re ever likely to see. 0-0 was perhaps the most predictable scoreline when looking at the recent results at Goodison Park - combine that with the fact neither side has played a competitive match in three months, a scoreless draw was always very likely. Everton will perhaps feel a tad unlucky seeing as they forced a good …
Listless Liverpool Labour to Goodison Stalemate.

Listless Liverpool Labour to Goodison Stalemate.

Liverpool missed the chance to move closer to a 19th league title as they laboured to a scoreless draw with Everton in the Merseyside Derby at Goodison Park. The Reds owned the possession but -- shorn of the services of injury precaution rested Mohamed Salah and Andrew Robertson -- struggled to prize open the stubborn, deep sitting defence of the home team. The lack of fluency that a three-month break would engender on a team was evident and the visitors …
How FSG treat Liverpool like an American sports franchise

How FSG treat Liverpool like an American sports franchise

A few years back now, I entertained the idea that football could soon follow American sports by essentially getting rid of transfer fees. With more and more players looking to move on free transfers, the next logical step was either inserting reasonable release clauses into every single contract or accepting that a player will be with the club for, say, a guaranteed five years before moving on.  The latter seemed the more obvious path. Release clauses often cause more harm …

An Ode To Alisson; Liverpool's Gargantuan Goalie

Given, Monday, June 1st was the one year anniversary of Liverpool's sixth European Cup final victory, social media is awash with videos, photos, and stories of the Reds' momentous achievement. There are video's of Divock Origi smashing the late, game-sealing goal past Hugo Lloris; photo's of captain Jordan Henderson and manager Jurgen Klopp's emotional embrace; stories of fans -- using planes, trains and automobiles -- travelling huge distances to will Liverpool to victory and to banish the demons of Kyiv …
Who Liverpool should sign Brazilian wonderkid

Who Liverpool should sign Brazilian wonderkid

Over recent years, Liverpool have turned into something of a destination club for Brazilian players. Alisson Becker, Fabinho and Roberto Firmino currently call Anfield home while Philippe Coutinho and Lucas Leiva spent large periods of their careers on Merseyside. Believe it or not, Fabio Aurelio spent six injury-filled years as a Liverpool player too. Diego Cavalieri and Doni’s time on Merseyside was fleeting though the latter apparently played a part in the Premier League leaders signing Alisson.  Whereas in the …
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 …
