Manchester City 1 Liverpool 4: Player Ratings

Manchester City 1 Liverpool 4: Player Ratings

Liverpool turned in a Klopp-terclass performance away from the home, at the home of a real top team. The team put in a performance which conveyed the view that they are beginning to absorb the vision of the new manager. Good times ahead ahoy!  Simon Mignolet (6.5) - Simon had a really straight forward game, saved most of what he could, was beaten by a peach from Aguero. He mad a great couple of saves though, which is now becoming …
Five Observations from Liverpool vs Norwich

Five Observations from Liverpool vs Norwich

Whilst watching this game against Norwich, I couldn't help but feel a little bit of sadness and sickness as the last number of times we played Norwich, Luis Suarez ran the show. Reminiscence of a greater, more fun Liverpool did not make for a pretty Sunday afternoon, as I laid back and watched highlights from this corresponding fixture two years ago while silently weeping, (which I can safely say, is also caused by the game that just transpired). Nevertheless, I …
Top Four Things That Didn't Happen in Liverpool's Transfer Window

Top Four Things That Didn't Happen in Liverpool's Transfer Window

Another crazy summer draws to a close. Gone are the rumours. Gone are the ITK's putting one and one into two. Gone are the mornings where one would scramble for his or her smartphone to catch up on what happened in the transfer window. As soon as it's transfer season, fans go nuts about the idea of new acquisitions in hopes of bolstering the squad for the upcoming season. The summer window is where most of the major transfers take …

Liverpool v West Ham Preview | Predicted Line-Ups and Facts

Seven not-so-pretty points in Liverpool’s first three matches is a promising start.  The new signings are starting to gel with the rest of the team.  Six new faces in the first XI and a new formation have created a different atmosphere at the beginning of this season, and the train of success doesn’t seem to be slowing down.  After a stunning opening-day victory against Arsenal, West Ham have lost their luster.  Since the first fixture, the Hammers have conceded six …
If There's Hope, It Lies in The Goals

If There's Hope, It Lies in The Goals

From 101 to 52. The drop in the amount of goals scored by Liverpool from the 2013/14 season to the 2014/15 season was stark, and was a result of their meek, submissive, and wholly unconvincing performances during the last campaign. One of the consistent themes throughout the aforementioned seasons was poor defending, both individually and as a unit. The Reds’ goal difference at the end of the 2014/15 season was a mere +4, as the error strewn defence which had …
Benteke vs. Firmino - Let's have a gander, shall we?

Benteke vs. Firmino - Let's have a gander, shall we?

In lieu of pissing off yet more Scousers I have decided to tone down the abuse and cast a more critical eye. Fuck knows how it’s going to turn out. One confirmed impressively early and the other at the centre of yet another drawn out, big money move; Roberto Firmino and Christian Benteke represent two sides to Liverpool Football Club right now. Both the style of these players must be considered and what that information lends to a judgement of Liverpool’s …
Sean O'Driscoll - Similar but Different

Sean O'Driscoll - Similar but Different

It's finally here. Pre-season officially began on July 6th. The 'big' news many ITK's predicted never actually arrived. Despite Callum 'credential' Wright saying a Dubai based company would buy the club they inevitably didn't. The manager wasn't replaced by a certain German. It was kind of nice how straightforward it was in the end after a summer of conspiracy theories. The first team coaching staff got two new additions, the playing staff has been aided by the additions of James …
