The Tsimikas & Robertson Rivalry

The Tsimikas & Robertson Rivalry

Competition is a good thing, and a comfortable player can be a potential risk in critical situations. To have two players vying for the same position can add intensity, urgency and quality to either players' performance. The ability to rotate also allows a few vital components, aside from fears of being dropped raising a player's game. The need to rest players (especially those that are flogged during international breaks) can maintain a level of freshness and thus added dependability throughout. …
Is Kelleher too good to be a back-up goalkeeper?

Is Kelleher too good to be a back-up goalkeeper?

Liverpool might soon have a problem with Caoimhin Kelleher. If he keeps on developing at the rate he currently is, he’s going to be too good to be a back-up.  He’ll want a season as a starter and who can blame him?  Kelleher needs it if he’s to make that step up and fulfil his potential.  After all, It is one thing coming in and impressing in the odd game, but it is another playing on a regular basis under …
Klopp’s Campaign Management

Klopp’s Campaign Management

Stubbornness, single mindedness, arrogance and an absolute inability to adjust one's methods, can be the downfall of even the best managers in modern football. In recent years we have seen the likes of Arsene Wenger and Jose Mourinho, unable to adapt to the modern needs of Premier League football, with both departing the division at relative low points. The signs are often evident, the fall off from brilliance usually gradual, but the reason for the decline always consistent. Football changes, …
Daniel Sturridge - Truly Elite

Daniel Sturridge - Truly Elite

There’s so many brilliant strikers that have worn the Liverpool shirt in the modern era. Young fans could be imagined replicating their goal scoring heroes of the past: Ian Rush, John Aldridge Robbie Fowler, Michael Owen, Fernando Torres and Luis Suarez topping the list of spectacular names. All of the above varied from elite to world class, and many arguments will have been held over the years, about who was the best in their prime. Prime years for any striker …
If You Don’t Know Me By Now…

If You Don’t Know Me By Now…

I wanted to distract a little from the joys of the transfer window, so would like to share some thoughts on one of the reds' greatest ever central defenders. Hint: it’s not Dejan Lovren. In 2008 Chelsea and Liverpool met on four separate occasions throughout the calendar year. The first, on February 10th (towards the back end of the 2007/08 season), saw Chelsea and the reds draw 0-0 at Stamford Bridge in the Premier League. The season's start saw the …
Diogo Jota: Liverpool's future No9

Diogo Jota: Liverpool's future No9

It’s no secret that Liverpool would benefit from a reliable centre-forward. Roberto Firmino is good for double digits in the Premier League and he brings more to the team than just goals. But it is becoming increasingly difficult to overlook the fact a ruthless No9 would make a difference.  Now, the dream signing for most would be Erling Haaland. The 21-year-old has 42 goals in 45 Bundesliga appearances for Borussia Dortmund following his move from Red Bull Salzburg in January …

Huge chance for Naby Keita to prove his worth at Liverpool

Huge chance for Naby Keita to prove his worth at Liverpool

It's fair to say Naby Keita's Liverpool career has been a disappointing one. There have been sporadic good moments thrown in, whether it be eye-catching performances, silky dribbles or relentless presses, but he hasn't come close to reaching the heights expected of him. When Keita sealed a move to Liverpool from RB Leipzig in 2017, the excitement was palpable, and those 12 months prior to him actually playing for the Reds seemed to make expectations even greater. After a vibrant …
Who should be Roberto Firmino's understudy?

Who should be Roberto Firmino's understudy?

Heading into this transfer window, there was hope Liverpool would bring in a traditional centre-forward. Someone who could not only fill in for Roberto Firmino but maybe also play alongside him. A player who might’ve been able to give the Reds a bit more of a Plan B. Maybe even someone who might be the one to kickstart the next evolution of this team.  The window is still open for a while, but there are no suggestions that this is …
Curtis Jones - The Next Step

Curtis Jones - The Next Step

There have been many young Liverpool players that were primed to make it to the top, however the list of players that actually make it is rather short. Liverpool cannot simply blood youth and maintain levels, thus the domestic cups and throwaway Champions League games are used to give minutes to certain players. Trent Alexander Arnold represents the current academy graduate that has fully established himself in the first team. His rise through the Liverpool system is a sign that …
