History Is Being Written

The weekend's games brought up a variation of emotions for all Reds fans, with the jubilant FA Cup Final victory quickly replaced by pure viewership of the West Ham v City battle. Both games ended in a draw, and where Liverpool's score line eventually produced silverware, it could be that City’s draw will inevitably do the same. Points will still need to be dropped by City for Liverpool to stand a chance, and a stand-alone win against Southampton will keep …

Villarreal 2 - 3 Liverpool - Man Of The Match

Villarreal 2 - 3 Liverpool - Man Of The Match Luis Diaz He changed the game, and is still pushing to become Liverpools most important forward. He came on after an horrendous first half, and forced the Spanish back line to stretch as he hugged the far touchline. He threatened and threatened, and finally got his goal with a well taken header. What a signing this man had been, and he was able to relax a stressed fanbase …
Observations: Don't Panic

Observations: Don't Panic

Dear Reader, this writer had the pleasure of watching Liverpool vs Villarreal on BT Sport. After a torrid first half in which the Reds were stunned by a daring tactical approach by knockout king Unai Emery (more on that later), there was something of a theme for the coverage. "Bring on Henderson", "need the captain's experience", "there has to be personnel changes from Klopp". The consensus seemed to be that Liverpool's midfielders had struggled, particularly Naby Keita, and therefore substitutions …

Molby On The Spot: The Next Evolution of Klopp's Legacy

As the dust was settling on the Reds' two goal victory in the first leg of the Champions League semi-final against Villarreal, news started to filter through that Jürgen Klopp was discussing the possibility of a new extension to his contract that was due to run out in 2024. Hours later, and the deal was done. In the blink of an eye Liverpool's manager had agreed to extend until 2026. Trevor and Jan discussed this on the latest edition of …
Observations: Half Time against Villarreal

Observations: Half Time against Villarreal

Only half time, that will be the message Jurgen Klopp gives to his lads after they beat Villarreal 2-0 at Anfield. But it was a truly dominant first half, with the yellow submarine only managing a single shot in the whole match, and even that could barely be called such as Lo Celso stretched to get to the ball. It was a pretty much perfect display from Liverpool. The counter-press was particularly impressive today, as Fabinho had a fantastic game …

A Defining Week Of Football For Liverpool FC

Once again and as with every week, Liverpool enter into a defining week that could shake their season to its core. After the Reds overcame a horrendous Everton side on Sunday, they remain one point behind leaders Manchester City. They are currently in the final of the FA Cup, and are about to embark on their semi-final in the Champions League, with the Premier League chase on going. On the day I write this, Manchester City are about to play …
Thiago - The Master Controller

Thiago - The Master Controller

Outside of Anfield, The Allianz Arena and The  Camp Nou, the penny may have finally dropped. I recall when Liverpool signed Thiago Alcantara being asked some peculiar questions. It mostly regarded his goals and assists record, and whether he was a better player than this player or that. To appreciate his brilliance is to understand the role Thiago plays in his version of football, and his version is nothing short of spectacular. In the aftermath of yet another massive Liverpool …

Liverpool 3 - 3 Benfica - The Man Of The Match

Bobby Firmino A man loved by the Reds' support, the players, and most importantly the manager. His work rate was impressive, and his goals a lovely sight. With so much talent in the Reds' forward options, Bobby can still have his high moments. Showed tremendous intelligence in his pressing, and movement off the ball. Two very well taken goals, and could be a starter more and more as the reds hunt more glory …

Liverpool 3 - 3 Benfica - The Player Ratings

Alisson Becker - 7.0 Always great to see his commanding presence on big nights at Anfield. Would have been relieved to see a brilliant chipped goal by Nunez chalked off for offside. 31 minutes saw a clinical finish fly past him, as Benfica drove on. His handling was assured, as Benfica started to test from wide positions after the break. Was unlucky in the one-on-one for Benfica’s second goal. The melee at the end couldn’t dampen the occasion. Joe Gomez …
