Why Liverpool Were Wrong To Loan Nathaniel Clyne

Why Liverpool Were Wrong To Loan Nathaniel Clyne

Today, it was announced that Liverpool had agreed a deal with Bournemouth to loan out Nathaniel Clyne until the end of the season. The deal will not come with an option to buy for the south coast club – with the deal merely understood to be put in place for the 27-year-old to play more first-team football. Clyne joined Liverpool in July 2015, who were then managed by Brendan Rodgers. Joining from Southampton for a fee worth £12.5million, many Reds …
Liverpool Player Ratings as Salah sizzles Bournemouth

Liverpool Player Ratings as Salah sizzles Bournemouth

Mohamed Salah reminds the Premier League exactly what he's all about and the Reds are top of the Premier League, for a few hours at least. Not a bad way to start the weekend. Bournemouth aren't a bad side and the 4-0 scoreline doesn't really reflect the gulf between the two teams, but Liverpool were, and are, better. Salah's three goals combined with own goal of the season from Steve Cook keeps the unbeaten run going. Over to you, Manchester …

Liverpool’s Next Five Away Fixtures Could Define Their Season

With the international break thankfully almost at an end, attention starts turning back to the Premier League, and for Liverpool, that means a tricky away trip to Watford in their first game back. Jürgen Klopp has never hidden his disdain for international football, in particular, the Nations League, and so will be glad to have his squad back ahead of their trip to Vicarage Road. The fixture in the capital is the start of what is a challenging run of …

Brexit Babes Boom in Value as January Approaches

Brexit!  And you thought you would be able to avoid politics in the warm, comfortable cocoon that is Premier League football.  Any small nudge to the freedom of movement principle could have a nuclear bomb sized impact on England’s top division.  Liverpool start a maximum of 5 UK born players for any given match these days.  Of all of the players who have seen the pitch this season, 12 players are foreign-born while 7 originate from the British Isles.  For …

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 …

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

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 …
