Why Andy Robertson is Undroppable

Why Andy Robertson is Undroppable

When Andy Robertson was signed from newly relegated Hull City, there was a collective air of uncertainty. The left back spot had become (like so many other positions when Klopp arrived) a problem one. With Albert Moreno being swapped in and out with James Milner prior to Robbo’s signing, it was certainly an area that needed addressing. Hull City and Liverpool managed a trade type deal, that was surely separated for accountancy purposes. The overall deal saw Kevin Stewart leave …
Stop Playing Thiago As The 6, Liverpool

Stop Playing Thiago As The 6, Liverpool

The medium to long term losses of Joe Gomez and Virgil van Dijk and the continued inconsistencies in Joel Matip's fitness record doesn't only impact Liverpool in defence. Of course, regularly not having three defenders of that calibre is harmful to a team's prospects of keeping clean sheets. But it's the Reds' midfield that has borne the brunt of the defences injuries. Fabinho, who has excelled in the new role that he's learned on the hoof, has had to moonlight …
What's changed since Van Dijk's injury?

What's changed since Van Dijk's injury?

When it was confirmed that Virgil van Dijk’s injury was a serious one, the fear was that the season would be a struggle for Liverpool. Since his arrival from Southampton, he’s practically been ever-present for the Reds. With him as centre-back, Jurgen Klopp’s side have reached two Champions League finals and racked up an incredible 196 points across two Premier League campaigns. Oh yeah, they also ended a 30-year drought to once again be champions of England.  However, the team …
Virgil Loss Will Be a Huge Blow But Liverpool Are Still Brilliant

Virgil Loss Will Be a Huge Blow But Liverpool Are Still Brilliant

Let's get the captain obvious statement out of the way at the beginning, shall we? Liverpool will miss Virgil van Dijk during his injury lay off, which, per reports, could last anything from six to nine months. If you could manufacture the perfect centre half in a lab, equipped with elite physical, mental, technical and leadership attributes, then the Reds' towering Dutchman would be the ideal prototype. Any team -- Barcelona with Lionel Messi, FC Bayern with Robert Lewandowski, to …
Why Ismaila Sarr Could Help Trent Alexander Arnold Become More Pivotal

Why Ismaila Sarr Could Help Trent Alexander Arnold Become More Pivotal

Joshua Kimmich, aided and abetted by the line-hugging play of Serge Gnabry, assisted Kingsley Coman for Bayern Munich's winner in Sunday's Champions League final. Taking up a position in the right half-space, the German, who has mostly played in the engine room this season but reverted to the right side of the Bavarians defence when Benjamin Pavard picked up an injury, accurately found Coman -- the former PSG player -- to nod an accurate header past Keylor Navas in the …
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 …
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 …
