Built on Emotion, Yet Ruthlessly Executed

Built on Emotion, Yet Ruthlessly Executed

Somehow, it was inevitable that it ended this way. Not with a roar that had been pent up for thirty years, not with a glorious cavalcade, not even in front of any fans. In fact, there weren’t even any red shirts on the pitch at the end of the ninety minutes that confirmed Liverpool as champions. Liverpool’s title celebrations were a long, long time coming. Tragedy had become ingrained into the club’s fabric, yet the close-calls and traumatic experiences – …

One Year On: The Game Where Alisson Showed His Worth

Liverpool is a club synonymous with historical nights in European football and this week we looked back on the first anniversary of arguably one of the greatest of those we'll ever see. Somehow the Reds overturned a 3-0 first leg deficit against Barcelona to make it to their second successive Champion League final after a 4-0 victory. While it's hard not to think of the contributions of the likes of super sub Gini Wijnaldum, Trent's quick thinking for the corner …
How The Power of Anfield Helped Liverpool Crush Barcelona

How The Power of Anfield Helped Liverpool Crush Barcelona

Even before kick-off, it was apparent that the Anfield crowd was ready. A healthy crowd gathered outside the stadium -- as is customary on big European nights -- to soundtrack the team's bus' entrance, defiantly lifting their player's morale when it appeared to all that they were flogging a dead horse. 3-0 down to Barcelona from the first leg, Liverpool -- who were shorn of 2/3's of their potent attacking trio, Mohamed Salah, and Roberto Firmino -- were given a …

Liverpool defender reflects on 'that' night against Barcelona

Has Shaqiri been a success at Liverpool?

Has Shaqiri been a success at Liverpool?

Jurgen Klopp has made a few signings that have come out of left field during his time as Liverpool manager. Gini Wijnaldum is certainly one that stands out in that respect, seemingly appearing to be a needless addition, not to mention one who wasn't expected to be used as an understated midfielder. The signing of Sadio Mane was also fairly surprising, believe it or not, at a time when Mario Gotze was the more fashionable alternative. In the summer of …

Imagining A Post Apocalyptic Anfield

Imagining A Post Apocalyptic Anfield

A small drone whizzes down a deserted street. Two mangy dogs face off over possession of a discarded can. The tin echos as it bounces across pavement and concrete. The camera pans up, past the shuddered businesses and grey landscape as a shimmering, modern stadium comes into focus. Post apocalyptic Anfield. Because, no matter what happens to society, football will live on. Right? That is the assumption we're going on at least because if we can't assume Liverpool are coming back to …

Liverpool should resist the temptation to sign Phillipe Coutinho next summer. According to reports in Spanish publication Mundo Deportivo, Barcelona will look to cut their losses on Coutinho in the next transfer window.

Struggling to fit into the tactical blueprint of the Nou Camp sides former manager, Ernesto Valverde, the attacking midfielder struggled to the …

Is Jurgen Klopp the Enemy of the Football League? Or it's Defender?

Whether you’re a Liverpool supporter or not, you’ll almost certainly have an opinion on Jurgen Klopp’s comments after (some) of his world champions drew 2-2 against a battling Shrewsbury at New Meadow Stadium. The main talking point from the game was the upcoming replay the Shrews had just valiantly earned themselves in fighting from 2-0 down. Klopp immediately dampened the tone stating, "We will not be there". This was the most cutting line he delivered post-match as he used the …
