Liverpool 3-1 Newcastle United: Who was Man of the Match?

Liverpool 3-1 Newcastle United: Who was Man of the Match?

Another win at Anfield for the handsome Reds. Even when going a goal down I doubt any Liverpool fan was particularly concerned, 3 points was always likely to be the result. That’s 5 wins from 5 Premier League games now with a trip to Naples up next in the Champions’ League. The defence didn’t have a whole lot of defending to do. The Jetro Willems goal could have been avoided in the build-up as an offside trap seemed to go …
Why Firmino Makes it all Work

Why Firmino Makes it all Work

As the dust settled on a convincing victory at one of Liverpool’s most precarious hunting grounds, and a spat between Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mané proliferated the post-match headlines, it was one cheeky smile and movement of the eyes that set everybody at ease. Indeed, it was also the arm of Roberto Firmino around Sadio Mané, as the latter continued his remonstrations with his manager regarding his partner in crime’s noticeable hunger for a goal, that showed Liverpool fans what …
The Case For Clyne

The Case For Clyne

Truth be told, Nathaniel Clyne is not an ideal fit for the Jurgen Klopp Liverpool of 2019. That's not to say the former Crystal Palace and Southampton full-back is a bad player; objectively, he is -- as Premier League full-backs go -- good. But with Liverpool's ultra attacking and productive full-back pairing of Trent  Alexander Arnold and Andrew Robertson setting the bar ridiculously high, Clyne will find his game time -- provided he stays -- limited unless injuries occur. There …
Liverpool's Adam Lewis willing to step up to provide cover for Andy Robertson

Liverpool's Adam Lewis willing to step up to provide cover for Andy Robertson

Liverpool academy prospect Adam Lewis says he is looking to impress Jurgen Klopp and his backroom team during the pre-season period. With Alberto Moreno having completed his move to Villarreal after his Liverpool contract was not renewed, Lewis hopes to become the second-choice left-back at the club behind Andy Robertson next season. Speaking to Liverpoolfc.com, Lewis said:
“We know what the manager likes, he loves the running, so you’ve just got to adapt to it and I see an opportunity …
Stephen Warnock hails Andy Robertson's performance levels

Stephen Warnock hails Andy Robertson's performance levels

Former Liverpool left-back Stephen Warnock has been lauding the growth of Andy Robertson since his arrival at Anfield. The former Hull City player joined The Reds for a reported fee of around £8 million which is almost considered 'small change' in today's market. Robertson has since gone on to establish himself as a regular in Jurgen Klopp's Liverpool defence as well as earning the captaincy for his country, Scotland. Warnock, a one-time red in his early career, spoke to Liverpoolfc.com …
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 …
Is Liverpool's Laptop Legend Budget Bound?

Is Liverpool's Laptop Legend Budget Bound?

Imagine if you will, Michael Edwards, still clearing the cobwebs from the meanest of post-parade hangovers, popping open his laptop, seeing endless messages from supporters complaining about Liverpool’s lack of signings and specifically the need for a reserve left-back. Edwards swings open his office door, sloshing a bit of coffee on the floor in the process as he slurs in an uncharacteristically gravelly voice, “who’s the best left-back we can get?” “Junior Firpo, sir,” a fresh-faced scout replies, leaning out …
Moments For The Underdogs: Joel Matip and Divock Origi

Moments For The Underdogs: Joel Matip and Divock Origi

 ‘I like being the underdog so they don’t expect what’s going to happen…’
The biggest moments aren’t always meant for the biggest players, the best players, the ones who you’d expect to take up the mantle when everything is on the line. Those glittering, do or die moments can spark the emergence of those who have faded into the background, the underdogs in a group of top dogs who make their mark where no one thought it possible. …
Five left backs who could replace Alberto Moreno

Five left backs who could replace Alberto Moreno

The confirmation that Alberto Moreno will be leaving Liverpool after a five-year stint at the club finally came this week. The Spaniard has found it impossible to prize minutes away from Andy Robertson who is arguably the world best left back at this moment in time. This announcement means the club has no obvious back-up for Robertson and they must look to rectify this during the summer transfer window. With game time severely reduced, it may be hard to get …
An Ode to Albi, goodbye Moreno

An Ode to Albi, goodbye Moreno

Alberto Moreno, it's been a pleasure, to many of us you were a treasure. Hated by some, adored by the rest, to Andy Robertson you were second best. We'll always have the strike against Spurs, a Liverpool career full of twists and turns. The Europa League final, a night of shame, lots of people didn't want to see you again But you fought back mightily, oh so well, the best left back in the league for a freaky spell. …
