Klopp - Class is Permanent

Klopp - Class is Permanent

When Jurgen arrived at Anfield, he followed three managers after Rafa Benitez had departed. He was a wonderful manager, a brilliant tactician & a man that brought the Champions League back to the red half of Liverpool. Istanbul stands as the greatest of finals, and the result will stand the test of time. That kind of achievement cements a place in Liverpool folklore. Rafa understood the reds, he understood the fans and understood the need for more. His final disagreements …
Joe Gomez enters defining period of his Liverpool career

Joe Gomez enters defining period of his Liverpool career

Joe Gomez has now been a Liverpool player for almost six years, which doesn't seem possible. In fact, he is now the fourth-longest-serving player at Anfield, behind Jordan Henderson, Divock Origi and James Milner, yet is still only 23 years of age. Gomez's Liverpool career has been a curious one, with endless moments of promise, exceptional runs in the team, but also a worrying list of injury layoffs. His early performances for the Reds in those first few weeks of …
Assessing Thiago's debut season with Liverpool

Assessing Thiago's debut season with Liverpool

There’s no guide out there on how to use stats in football. Maybe there should be. After all, a stat without context is just a number. Mainstream media has been forced into embracing this part of the sport over recent seasons. They initially resisted, but it quickly became a case of adapt or perish.  As a result, you now regularly see questionable usage of stats in articles written by old-school journalists who have very little experience with numbers.  There’s nothing …
A Failed Venture

A Failed Venture

The Super League, a revolutionary idea that was shunned by the masses, ill prepared for public consumption by the instigators and put back into its box for normality to resume within the elite football corridors throughout Europe. UEFA are no shining light with their failures, short comings and inability to implement Financial Fair Play did indeed bring the potential need for change to the table for discussion. Reform, adjustment to the often times remarkable Champions League & clarity of their …
Liverpool's battle to save their season starts now

Liverpool's battle to save their season starts now

So, a trophy-less season it is then. Liverpool's Champions League dream ended in all-too-predictable fashion on Wednesday night, with poor finishing yet again proving fatal against Real Madrid. While much of the focus has understandably been on the Reds' centre-back woes, with Virgil van Dijk, Joe Gomez and Joel Matip all absent, their struggles in the final third have been just as problematic. It is hard to be too critical of Mo Salah during a season in which he has …

"It could have been a different story" - Milner laments Liverpool's loss to Real Madrid

James Milner says everyone at Liverpool has been left rueing their poor first-leg display which led to their Champions League exit. Jürgen Klopp's Reds lost 3-1 away to Real Madrid last week after a very poor performance on the night - a defeat they were unable to bounce back from on Wednesday at Anfield. Despite an impressive effort, the second leg finished 0-0 at Anfield and Liverpool are out of European football's premier competition. Speaking in his post-match interview, Liverpool …
Ample Positives For Liverpool To Take Despite European Exit

Ample Positives For Liverpool To Take Despite European Exit

Liverpool bowed out of the Champions League at the quarter-final stage after a 0-0 draw with Real Madrid at Anfield on Wednesday night. Trailing 3-1 from the first leg, the Reds -- despite creating ample chances -- were unable to prize open the stubborn defence of the visitors and, for the second year running, they were eliminated from Europe by a Spanish team. The defeat is obviously disappointing for Jurgen Klopp, the players and the fans alike, especially because it …

"That will not happen" - Klopp rubbishes notion that Champions League exit could negatively impact remainder of Liverpool's season

Jürgen Klopp insists Liverpool's Champions League exit will not impact their performance for the remainder of the season. Klopp's Reds drew 0-0 with Real Madrid at Anfield last night, a result that meant Liverpool lost 3-1 on aggregate after a poor first-leg performance in Spain last week.

"That will not happen that …
Will this be Liverpool's starting eleven to face Real Madrid tonight at Anfield?

Will this be Liverpool's starting eleven to face Real Madrid tonight at Anfield?

Liverpool meet Real Madrid at Anfield tonight in the second leg of their Champions League quarter-final clash. Jürgen Klopp's men are 3-1 down from the first leg last week in Spain. That leaves Liverpool with a huge mountain to climb if they are to progress to the semi-finals and a likely date with Premier League rivals Chelsea. The Reds are without Virgil van Dijk, Joël Matip, Joe Gomez, and Jordan Henderson. Divock Origi, Caoimhin Kelleher, and Curtis Jones will face …
