Is James Milner better than Gary McAllister?

Is James Milner better than Gary McAllister?

James Milner is a Liverpool legend.  A few months into his career at Anfield, it appeared as though he might’ve been more Joe Cole than he was Gary McAllister. For a period of time, it felt as though a Milner performance was a 6/10 and a yellow card was guaranteed. In his defence, though, this was during the final few months of Brendan Rodgers’ time on Merseyside and most, if not all, players failed to really impress.  But then he …
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 …
Patrick van Aanholt: A Liverpool Player In Waiting

Patrick van Aanholt: A Liverpool Player In Waiting

Liverpool find themselves in a strange position at the moment. With their first eleven and the most the supporting cast of the highest quality, their needs in the transfer market centre around finding adequate backup players and prospects for the future. Perhaps the position most in need of bolstering in the market is the substitute left-back berth, more so than front three depth and a fourth choice centre-half. As the clubs only senior left-sided full-back in a team who delegate …
Brighton 1-3 Liverpool - Player Ratings as Reds continue their centurions push

Brighton 1-3 Liverpool - Player Ratings as Reds continue their centurions push

Liverpool made hard work of things after a lightning start at the Amex Stadium, as they beat Brighton 3-1 thanks to a brace from Mohamed Salah. It was the Egyptian who gave Liverpool the lead, before the skipper Jordan Henderson doubled it a couple of minutes later. Brighton grew into the game for the rest of the first half, and deservedly pulled a goal back through Leandro Trossard, but Salah's header off an Andy Robertson corner sealed the points for …
Liverpool Fly Above Seagulls

Liverpool Fly Above Seagulls

Liverpool became the quickest team in Premier League history to win 30 games in a season with a 3-1 win over Brighton at the Amex Stadium. A brace from Golden Boot chasing Mohamed Salah as well as a Jordan Henderson screamer was enough to seal the win for the Reds -- who handed Neco Williams a debut at left back -- despite a far from vintage performance against a brave Brighton outfit. Liverpool roared into an early lead, with a …
Why Alaba Would be the Perfect Summer Addition at Liverpool

Why Alaba Would be the Perfect Summer Addition at Liverpool

By the looks of things, Liverpool are set to undergo another quiet summer in the transfer market. The Reds' decision not to pursue a move for Timo Werner appears to be a sign of things to come, even though there is no ruling out the prospect of the odd addition coming in. One player who has been loosely linked with a move to Liverpool is David Alaba, who has been a stylish stalwart for Bayern Munich over the past decade, …
Jurgen Klopp's Tactical Conundrum

Jurgen Klopp's Tactical Conundrum

Liverpool players are often accused of being too reliant on the system they’re being deployed in. It’s used as a criticism and as a way to downplay the achievements of Mohamed Salah, Roberto Firmino and Sadio Mane.  “In other teams, they’d be nowhere near as effective.”   And while this might be true, it’s actually adding weight to the managerial ability of Jurgen Klopp. The former BVB boss is often written off as a passion merchant and what he does tactically …
Curtis Jones Could Be Liverpool's New 16/17 Lallana

Curtis Jones Could Be Liverpool's New 16/17 Lallana

If you polled people to ask them the words they most associate with Liverpool's midfield, the descriptions you would mostly see would be "functional, stodgy, obstinant, no-frills." While not always the easiest on the eye -- although, when asked to play progressively, they can weave pretty patterns and pass through opponents with the build-up to Roberto Firmino's goal at Manchester City last season a shining example of this -- the Reds' engine room's effectiveness cannot be disputed. With World, European …
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 …
What Makes The Reds So Great - Part 1

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 …
