Can Klopp Find The Right Folks To Win Trophies?

Bitter experience brings us all, inevitably, to the same conclusion - for the most part, people are awful. Now, optimistic philanthropist that you are, lovely reader, you may be bristling at such apparent negativity, but that is only because you are one of the good ones. You simply cannot conceive of the ugliness that resides in the souls of so many. Or perhaps you have been blessed by the veritable lottery win that is a life of generally positive interactions …
Why This Summer Is Genuinely Liverpool's Biggest In Recent Memory

Why This Summer Is Genuinely Liverpool's Biggest In Recent Memory

I know that some of you will have read that headline, tutted to yourself and thought, “we say that every year”. You’re right, to be fair. Every summer that comes along, we tell ourselves that this is the one that will see Liverpool reach the next level. The one that will finally end the wait for that elusive Premier League title. We said it in 2002, 2009 and 2014, following the Reds’ best attempts at lifting the trophy since its …
Liverpool Must Learn From Their Festive Slumps In 02/03 & 08/09

Liverpool Must Learn From Their Festive Slumps In 02/03 & 08/09

Liverpool are 13 matches into their assault on another Premier League title, and they have arguably never looked more likely to seal that holy grail we have all craved so badly since 1990. Under Jurgen Klopp, the Reds are looking the part more and more by the week, and they are picking up points in every way imaginable. They have had to cling on for a few victories, most notably Arsenal and Swansea - if we’d drawn 4-4 with Arsenal, …
Why we owe Steven Gerrard his return

Why we owe Steven Gerrard his return

Liverpool legend deserves a return to Anfield despite mixed opinions. Sunken to his knees, staring into the abyss of Selhurst Park, Steven Gerrard knew it was over. His dream of lifting the Premier League title with Liverpool, had disappeared faster than he fell to allow Demba Ba THAT goal the previous week. “Devastation” was the word Gerrard used to describe how he felt on the final day, with regards to the outcome of the season. There was neither optimism for the …
Klopp's Resilient Reds?

Klopp's Resilient Reds?

Brittle, frail, delicate, on the brink of collapse and similar to a Creme Brulee with that soft centre are just a few of the creative ways the Liverpool defence has been described over the years. They're not wrong either, not since the days of Rafa Benitez and Kenny Dalglish's second stint as Liverpool manager have the Reds shown any sort of resiliency when it comes to defending. You can quote the number of clean sheets the team have had all you …
Klopp's 2016/17 Entertainers: A Joyous Time To Support Liverpool

Klopp's 2016/17 Entertainers: A Joyous Time To Support Liverpool

There was a point during Tuesday’s routine 3-0 win over Derby County when I realised I was enjoying watching Liverpool more than I can almost ever remember. Some of the football was breathtaking at times, with the speed, movement and imagination in the Reds’ play something to behold. Whether it be Philippe Coutinho’s quick feet, Roberto Firmino’s effortless elegance or simply the slick efficiency of Nathaniel Clyne, I was riveted. I was going to bang on about Loris Karius’ handsomeness …
Liverpool 2008/09 - So Close...

Liverpool 2008/09 - So Close...

How Things Are Different eras connect with different people.  Based upon what was going on in your life at the time - where you lived, who you were dating, where your career was at - you may have so many memories about a period that is simply trivial to others. To this day, if I hear a track from Smashing Pumpkins’ “Mellon Collie...” album it takes me right back.  It was the first time I fell in love with music, …

A New Hope: Liverpool's Resurgence

A New Hope: Liverpool's Resurgence

“This time we’ll be destroyed for sure. This is madness.” – C3PO.
A long time ago, in the annals of English football, there was a club... But this was no ordinary club. 18 League Titles, 5 European Cups and dozens of alternative trophies had launched Liverpool into the status of Global Superpower. Having fought against common enemies and emerged victorious, a new threat emerged. Internal divisions and bitterness over its nostalgic past had removed the club’s collective identity. …
