FSG Out - The Rise & Fall of our Controversial Owners 

FSG Out - The Rise & Fall of our Controversial Owners 

For the entirety of January, I was convinced my football club would recruit that midfielder which was desperately needed. My misguided faith in our owners (doing the right thing) has left me saddened, as I wanted to remember them for all the good they have done for this historical club. It can never be denied how they were able to modernise, restructure, grow, and bring this franchise to the very peak of modern-day football. Their success was built upon smart …
Tony Evans: It's Time For Mo Salah to Shine

Tony Evans: It's Time For Mo Salah to Shine

There is no doubt that Mo Salah is a Liverpool great. He has been the cutting edge of the Jurgen Klopp era. Unfortunately, he’s dropped down a gear just at the moment and he needs to step up another level. We’ve come to expect more than seven goals in half a Premier League season. He’s going to have to double that output in the next 19 games to make qualification for next year’s Champions League a possibility. But first it’s …
Jurgen, it's time to say goodbye

Jurgen, it's time to say goodbye

On October 8th, 2015 Jurgen Klopp become Liverpool's manager. He agreed to take over a team that was languishing in mid-table, with the squad desperately in need of reinvention, and a fanbase desperate for real success. He dubbed himself the normal one and talked about Liverpool being a special club. From humble beginnings with a 0-0 draw away to Tottenham, Klopp would build Liverpool into a team feared throughout Europe. With his heavy metal football, built around gegenpressing, his team …
Tony Evans: The Narrative Surrounding Naby Keita is Ludicrous

Tony Evans: The Narrative Surrounding Naby Keita is Ludicrous

The best quality a footballer can have is availability. It doesn’t matter how good you are if you can’t play. Daniel Sturridge might have been the best English striker of the previous decade but he didn’t get onto the pitch enough. Harry Kane would not have been close to becoming England’s leading goalscorer if Sturridge would have been robust. And so to Naby Keita. There were so many high hopes for the 27-year-old and so many disappointments. Rail all you …
Jurgen Klopp: Pivotal Period with Worrying Wenger Parallels

Jurgen Klopp: Pivotal Period with Worrying Wenger Parallels

It all feels so pivotal this month. There’s not all that many games truth be told, although a replay against Wolves will likely be inserted somewhere but any break for Liverpool in recent times appears to have been of little benefit. Only seven of the first team squad went to the World Cup and Jurgen Klopp’s initial bullishness at the restart appears to have given way to a stubborn and frosty exterior, which is understandable given his side's recent struggles. …
Tony Evans: Klopp's Team Capitulated, He Needs to Sort it Out, Quickly!

Tony Evans: Klopp's Team Capitulated, He Needs to Sort it Out, Quickly!

The performance in the 3-1 defeat by Brentford was unacceptable. There were so many things wrong that it’s hard to know where to start. It was not the way to open the new year. Everyone is looking for scapegoats and has their own theory: the midfield is an ongoing problem; the tactics have stopped working; Pep Lijnders is a corrosive influence; age has caught up with the team; and there are internal divisions among the backroom staff. Not restocking the …
Man Utd Bought Marquee, Whilst Liverpool Invested, But Who Won…?

Man Utd Bought Marquee, Whilst Liverpool Invested, But Who Won…?

The Cristiano Ronaldo interview with Piers Morgan has seen some crazy comments arise, as the legendary forward made some damning statements regarding his current club. The former Real Madrid player seemed to have one intent, to force the hand of his paymasters, and ensure he returns from the World Cup as a free agent. At this point in his remarkable career, the 37 year old (who turns 38 in February) seems unable to accept a lessening role within top tier …
Observations: Half Time against Villarreal

Observations: Half Time against Villarreal

Only half time, that will be the message Jurgen Klopp gives to his lads after they beat Villarreal 2-0 at Anfield. But it was a truly dominant first half, with the yellow submarine only managing a single shot in the whole match, and even that could barely be called such as Lo Celso stretched to get to the ball. It was a pretty much perfect display from Liverpool. The counter-press was particularly impressive today, as Fabinho had a fantastic game …

The Best Matches Liverpool has Played at Anfield

There was a time when betting on EPL matches at Anfield entailed placing a bet for Liverpool to win and being right – for every game. Since their 68-game winning streak at Anfield was broken, the Reds could use a trip down memory lane to remember the strength of the team's legacy carriers. Here are the Best Matches Liverpool has played at Anfield. Liverpool v Everton, March '12: 3-0 This game is iconic for most players. Liverpool didn't have the …
A Timely Reboot

A Timely Reboot

Liverpool finally lost a game at Anfield this week, with their second leg tie against Inter ending in defeat. In a period where Jürgen Klopp has had no choice but to rotate his stellar cast of performers, it was inevitable that a slight bump in the road would occur. It reminded me of a time where Blackburn Rovers once lost to Liverpool, before immediately celebrating their Premier League title win. No Rovers fan cared about the loss that day, and …
