Clash Of The Reds' World Class Titans

Clash Of The Reds' World Class Titans

The history of Liverpool FC is littered with attacking brilliance, overflowing with characters, and allows the fans a chance to relive memorable moments with a smile. Recent years (predominantly the Premier League era), has seen a marvellous array of forwards grace the Anfield turf, and disagreements as to who was better than who, will always be argued by the fan base. Where Ian Rush holds an almost insurmountable goal tally, his heir Robbie Fowler, possessed such clinical abilities in front …
Michael Edwards - The Regeneration

Michael Edwards - The Regeneration

For years, the director of football was a nuisance, an obstacle and a hinderance to most managers throughout the Premier League. The mere thought that any old school manager would need either help, guidance or another body to aid the club football was sneered upon, and often dismissed. FSG have had their failings, that is not in doubt , yet it is the overall process from their tenure that should be applauded. They have learned, progressed, installed a working structure …
Brendan Rodgers - More Than That Documentary

Brendan Rodgers - More Than That Documentary

Understanding the rise, fall & resurrection of Brendan Rodgers is a story in itself. From his days under the initial Jose regime at Chelsea (as youth team coach) along with Andre Villas Boas & Steve Clarke, to his current position overachieving at Leicester, the road has been bumpy to say the least. Much can be made of his path to this point, with all the twists and turns to arrive here. It is his spell as Liverpool’s manager that can …
Tactical Breakdown: Leicester 3-1 Liverpool

Tactical Breakdown: Leicester 3-1 Liverpool

Liverpool slumped to a third consecutive league defeat at the King Power Stadium, surrendering the lead in a flurry of goals that saw the champions lose 3-1. Brendan Rodgers' Foxes set up in a 4-4-2 system. When in possession, Leicester looked to avoid offering pressing opportunities for Liverpool in the middle of the pitch, and Kasper Schmeichel looked to play direct passes into the fullbacks, who would then attempt to play long passes into the channel behind the fullbacks and …
Tactical Breakdown: Liverpool 3-0 Leicester

Tactical Breakdown: Liverpool 3-0 Leicester

With injuries aplenty following the international break and a deluge of fixtures awaiting Jürgen Klopp's red men, an acceptable result seemed more important than a strong performance. With Salah, Alexander-Arnold and Thiago all unavailable, the champions were without their three best creative players, leaving the creative burden upon a midfield and forward line that has had little time to develop the sort of relationships required to pick apart a defence. Likewise, Leicester was without Ndidi - their most important midfield …
Rampant Reds Flatten Foxes

Rampant Reds Flatten Foxes

Liverpool comprehensively defeated Leicester City 3-0 at Anfield to move level with Tottenham at the top of the table. A Jonny Evans own goal, and headers from Diogo Jota and Roberto Firmino sealed the victory for the Reds in an imperious performance of attacking football. Were it not for the numerous saves of Kasper Schmeichel in the visitors' goal and two goal-bound shots being cleared off the line, the Champions would have won by a more handsome margin. The pre-match …

Will Rodgers prevent Liverpool setting all-time unbeaten home record?

Will Rodgers prevent Liverpool setting all-time unbeaten home record?

April 23rd, 2017. Liverpool 1-2 Crystal Palace. Feels like a lifetime ago, doesn't it? At that point, Jurgen Klopp was still only in his first full season as Reds manager and his side hadn't yet played in the Champions League under him. This was still a year before the agony of Kiev, let alone the glorious triumph in Madrid and the Premier League title that followed, and Mo Salah, Andy Robertson, Virgil van Dijk and Alisson weren't yet Liverpool players, …
Is it time for out-of-form Firmino to be dropped?

Is it time for out-of-form Firmino to be dropped?

Some footballers can go through slumps in form and still look something close to their best, but others are the polar opposite, turning into pale imitations of themselves. Unfortunately, Roberto Firmino belongs in the latter category. The Brazilian has been a sensational performer for Liverpool over the past five years, overcoming Brendan Rodgers' bizarre use of him to become one of the world's leading attackers. When Firmino has been on-song, he has been the epitome of everything great about this …
Is James Milner better than Gary McAllister?

Is James Milner better than Gary McAllister?

James Milner is a Liverpool legend.  A few months into his career at Anfield, it appeared as though he might’ve been more Joe Cole than he was Gary McAllister. For a period of time, it felt as though a Milner performance was a 6/10 and a yellow card was guaranteed. In his defence, though, this was during the final few months of Brendan Rodgers’ time on Merseyside and most, if not all, players failed to really impress.  But then he …
