Premier League 2018/19 Season Preview

Premier League 2018/19 Season Preview

This has not stopped the majority of the big Premier League clubs from making money moves in anticipation. Ahead, we preview what to expect from them this season. Arsenal Arsenal’s relatively early business in securing the tenacious Lucas Torreira (aptly auto-corrected to terrier), supplemented with the earlier additions of Borussia Dortmund’s spine, …
Liverpool Need to Take Advantage of World Cup Hangovers

Liverpool Need to Take Advantage of World Cup Hangovers

The Premier League season starts in just a few days. And the spectre of the World Cup still hangs over the Premier League’s top six. This was a World Cup in which the Premier League’s top teams all had plenty of players not just participating but going the distance – and certain teams will benefit from that. Liverpool need to be one of the beneficiaries. It’s expected that Roberto Firmino and his Brazilian teammate Alisson Becker will start against West …
Two Beaches, One Red Bum? LFC's World Cup Summers

Two Beaches, One Red Bum? LFC's World Cup Summers

Four weeks remain until the transfer window slams shut and Liverpool have added one senior player. One. Is it time to panic or is this just business as usual during a World Cup summer? The only logical thing to do, painful as it may be, is to get in the way-back machine turn the dial back to the summer of 2014. By this point in that summer, the Reds were ahead of the pace, having already raided Southampton twice and …

2018-19 Premier League fixture reaction. The season we win it?

With the recent disappointment of the proposed Nabil Fekir signing falling through, Liverpool fans have been in need of a distraction to take their minds off the circus that the transfer window rumour mill. Not only is the World Cup due to begin today (hooray football is back!), but the 2018-19 Premier League fixture list has also been released. As a fan base, we have the tendency to dwell on frustrations of the past, so the 2018-19 fixture list is …

Win!

Though I know I'll never lose affection For people and things that went before I know I'll often stop and think about them In my life, I love you more Allow me to explain if you will. You’ll need coffee. Tissues optional. Heart necessary. Fortitude compulsory. If 2011 was the season that started me, this season could so simply have been the one that finished me. Back then, so many years ago, I became a father for the first time. …
Liverpool's European Hangover - Statistical Analysis

Liverpool's European Hangover - Statistical Analysis

The Reds are marching on Kiev! What a week, what an achievement! Jurgen Klopp managed to reach his second European final with Liverpool in his second European campaign. Hopefully this time he takes the team a step further than the last time around. The German is yet to lose at Anfield in Europe - a truly remarkable run. With all the excitement surrounding our success in the Champions League, it's easy to dismiss the lack of such domestically. Ahead of …
Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain - The Perfect Klopp Midfielder

Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain - The Perfect Klopp Midfielder

As a raw teenager at Southampton in the 2010-11 season, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain carved out a reputation as one of the hottest prospects in English football. A clamour for his signature ensued in the Summer of 2011, and it was Arsenal who staved off interest from a number of suiters by completing the signing of the exciting teenager. At the time, Arsenal had a strong reputation for developing young talent. So it was understandable that the youngster chose to ply his …
The Bottom-13: Liverpool Have Conquered Their Achilles Heel

The Bottom-13: Liverpool Have Conquered Their Achilles Heel

I went for a drink with a good friend last week - A Man United fan, unfortunately - and as usual, we spent a vast chunk of our time talking about football. The usual discussion about how the top-four will end up looking cropped up, and after making our predictions - it will be Chelsea and Arsenal who miss out, in case you're wondering - my mate declared, “Liverpool would be a shoo-in if they could just find consistency against …
Liverpool FC: A lack of winners

Liverpool FC: A lack of winners

In February 2007 I met the woman who would go on to become my wife. Very quickly she was introduced to my obsession with football, and Liverpool Football Club in particular. Thankfully for me, she got onboard with this obsession almost from the off and has gone on to become a Liverpool supporter in her own right. During our time together she’s been a regular matchday companion for me at Anfield and even gone to the match without me on …
Daniel Sturridge, Thank You & Good Luck

Daniel Sturridge, Thank You & Good Luck

It's been a tough time of late for Daniel Sturridge, in and out of the side over the past few seasons because of injuries, and a change of system; but any time Sturridge was in the side, or came off the bench, there was always a glimmer of hope for Liverpool when in a sticky patch. As one of the most clinical and predatory strikers ever seen at Anfield, fans knew, all it took was one chance, and Sturridge would …
