Can Momentum Be Liverpool’s Greatest Title Weapon?

Can Momentum Be Liverpool’s Greatest Title Weapon?

No team thrives more with momentum behind them than Liverpool. We are an emotional fanbase and when things are going well, the Reds can become an unstoppable force, as we have witnessed throughout history. Using modern examples - I know, football existed well before 1992 - nothing stands out more than 2004/05 in that respect. Nobody even gave Liverpool the slightest chance of glory in the Champions League that season, with countless teams ahead of them in the favourites' pecking …

"I Can't Watch" - Why Vlog at Anfield?

We are all mad about football because of the ecstasy and euphoria that goes with it. The inevitable comedowns are toppled by the highs. And those highs are the best kind. We remember them and cherish them. Just like most substances, they only give us an appetite for more. You could call it an addiction to the jubilation and the affliction. However, among the like-minded majority arise the space cadets, especially with the help of social media. In the hours …
Liverpool Need A Playmaker

Liverpool Need A Playmaker

On-ball (in possession) Off-ball (out of possession) Transition (between possession) These are the three phases of football. Liverpool are without a doubt one of, if not the best team in the world in transition, that is, the moment in which a team transfers from a defensive shape to an attacking one, or vice-versa. The speed at which Liverpool move from a defensive shape into an offensive one is overwhelming for most sides. Immediately, the players rush into space, ahead of the …
Liverpool 0-0 Man City: Who was the Man of the Match?

Liverpool 0-0 Man City: Who was the Man of the Match?

Riyad Mahrez's late penalty miss has left Liverpool fans pondering whether their side's goalless draw with Manchester City represents a point gained or two points dropped. On the one hand, the Reds could be thankful that they were not punished for what was an uninspiring performance, bereft of the anticipated vigour, but on the other, it seems that a potentially crucial opportunity has been missed, with City expected to hoover up the points elsewhere. Liverpool flew out of the blocks …

Key Stats as Reds' Unbeaten Streak Clings On

Liverpool secured a breathless point at Anfield to go into the second international break still unbeaten following a 0-0 draw with Champions Manchester City. But what were the key stats from a hard-fought contest? Reds’ Attack Still Misfiring It would be unfair to describe Liverpool’s front three as going through a crisis, but there are clearly real issues with the Reds’ attack. In this game, they created just 0.43 xG, their joint-lowest league total since their 1-0 home win over …

Klopp's Liverpool and Doing Things the Fun Way

Klopp's Liverpool and Doing Things the Fun Way

Playing the Liverpool way. It’s a fairly common trope, perhaps an oxymoron when every football club seems to have a “way” these days – there’s even a “Norwich way”, apparently. For Liverpool fans, however, identity is everything. Football is bound together by its unique fan culture, the interconnectedness of the football landscape means stories are perpetuated, and Liverpool’s story is one of decorated trophy cabinets and an envied atmosphere. Perhaps Anfield’s atmosphere hasn’t lived up to its hype recently. But …

Key observations as Liverpool set the marker in season opener

It has been a few weeks since Liverpool last played a competitive game, in Kiev, a game Liverpool fans would not be looking back kindly. Hence most fans could not wait to get the season started for more reasons than one. And what a start that was. The key takeaways from the match: New Season, same attacking verve The game did not feel like the season opener, with Liverpool showing the same attacking verve and fluency right from where they …
