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.

Key Stats from Liverpool 3-0 Bournemouth. Easy Street.

Liverpool turned in another comfortable win at Anfield, this time against Bournemouth, with the Cherries routed 3-0. But what were the key stats from a happy evening for Klopp’s Reds? Goals Galore Liverpool notched their 300th goal under Jürgen Klopp, in just 148 games. The team that has been scoring at a clip of two goals a game for his entire regime scored more than that today and that was partly down to the brilliance of his forwards. Both Sadio Mané …

What We've Learnt About Klopp's LFC | Part 2: Midfield dynamics and game impact

Following on from part 1 of this series, which can be read here. After more disappointing dropped points at the Emirates, that piece is worth a read. In this piece, I will take a brief look at the midfield and Klopp's use of his players in his various systems. Klopp is the best manager we've had since Rafa. The latter is still the best and most recent yard-stick to assess Klopp's performance and team building. Our midfield is clearly sub-standard …
Liverpool's perfect performance: Tactical masterclass?

Liverpool's perfect performance: Tactical masterclass?

Liverpool's demolition of Bournemouth appeared to be one of the complete performances of the season. Utterly dominant and prepotent in the first half, Liverpool romped to victory, with a pressing, passing and offensive performance which defied all expectations. https://twitter.com/Caley_graphics/status/942502495582113797 To me, Liverpool looked distinctly better with their passing. Indeed, Liverpool had an 88pc passing accuracy, whilst retaining 56pc of the possession. In terms of the number of passes, Liverpool made 655. Considering this, I wondered if there was a way to …

Every Week

Every Week "Important" For Liverpool FC

Liverpool returned from the international break to begin their busiest period of the season with a 3-0 win over Saints to begin what has been labelled a hugely important week, ahead of a frantic run to January. Whilst this is, in my opinion at least, technically true, it’s also hugely misleading. Almost every week in the season can be (and has been) described as vitally important. It was important we did well against City. It was important we recovered from …
Could loaning Divock Origi cost Liverpool the title?

Could loaning Divock Origi cost Liverpool the title?

Amid the madness of Deadline Day, Divock Origi's loan move to Wolfsburg went a little un-noticed. Touted after the striker wasn't included in squad's for either of the last two Premier League games, Jürgen Klopp granted Origi his wish of more first team football by sanctioning a move to the Bundesliga side. Liverpool have done well financially from the deal, Wolfsburg paying Origi's wages plus a rumoured loan fee of six million pounds. On the surface, it seems a good …
Wary Klopp Remains Defiant

Wary Klopp Remains Defiant

When writhing through the thick fug of a migraine, it can be hard to tell with absolute certainty what is real and what one might be imagining. On Friday, complications arising from some scheduled prodding and poking under the bonnet of your columnist's noggin, resulted in 3 days of pain-induced confusion and reality-bending altered perception. It was basically unintentional MK Ultra. There was an incident involving an orange that appeared to be vibrating on a bedside locker and several episodes …
