A Crucial Week Ahead

A Crucial Week Ahead

One down, a good few more to go. Liverpool overcame Watford at the weekend with a 2-0 win, to temporarily rise to the top of the Premier League. Manchester City soon reclaimed that position, with a routine win against Burnley. This coming week will now see two crucial games follow that game against Watford, as a trip to Benfica is followed by a huge match up against leaders City. Two wins for the Reds would give Jurgen Klopp’s men some …
Old Skool: Tremendous Trebles, and is the Quadruple Even Possible?

Old Skool: Tremendous Trebles, and is the Quadruple Even Possible?

With the international break upon us, Gags and Dave got together to discuss the final few weeks of the season - and asked the question on everyone's lips: Can we win the quadruple? The first talking point was a look back at how far Liverpool have come since the end of Rodgers' tenure in charge. Then, of course, there was a detailed look into the state of play now - and how we've slowly developed into one of the best …
Analysing Jurgen Klopp's substitutions

Analysing Jurgen Klopp's substitutions

Jurgen Klopp has made some gamechanging substitutions in crucial fixtures recently. Most notably, of course, there was the daring triple sub against Inter Milan at the San Siro. Off went Harvey Elliott, Sadio Mane and, surprisingly, Fabinho and on came Naby Keita, Luis Diaz and Jordan Henderson. The subsequent improvement in the Reds' display was stark, and they scored twice in 15 tie-clinching minutes at the end of the game. Then, against Arsenal, he sent on Roberto Firmino in place …
Euro Incision: The Perfect Champions League Draw

Euro Incision: The Perfect Champions League Draw

It was Nina and regular Euro Incision podcast guest, Themis Kessaris, on this edition of the show. The obvious topic of conversation was last week's Champions League draw for the last eight, the semi-final's and even which team would be classified as the 'home' team in the final. Themis was particularly delighted with the outcome, and when questioned about how he would rate the draw by Nina at the start of the pod, his answer was emphatic! The possible scenario …
Under Pressure: Textbook Rotation, Perfect Pressing and Naby's Great Form

Under Pressure: Textbook Rotation, Perfect Pressing and Naby's Great Form

Liverpool may have lost to Inter Milan at Anfield, but the Under Pressure boys soon to put to bed any doubt that the Reds deserved to go through with a comprehensive run down of the key stats from the two legged tie: 3.1 xG to 0.8 coupled with FIVE big chances to the Italian side's zero. Case closed. However, the main focus of the podcast was the victory over Brighton - including the continued impressive rotation, the controlled pressing and …
The Salah Ultimatum

The Salah Ultimatum

I want Mohamed Salah to sign a new contract with Liverpool, as he’s the world's best player, performing to the peak of his powers. He is perhaps the most remarkable signing in Liverpool's history, and the success that has been garnered (during his stay), is as much to do with him as anyone else. This last week has seen Liverpool fans made aware of his contract stalemate, and the fact that a new one remains unsigned. The numbers are relatively …
A Timely Reboot

A Timely Reboot

Liverpool finally lost a game at Anfield this week, with their second leg tie against Inter ending in defeat. In a period where Jürgen Klopp has had no choice but to rotate his stellar cast of performers, it was inevitable that a slight bump in the road would occur. It reminded me of a time where Blackburn Rovers once lost to Liverpool, before immediately celebrating their Premier League title win. No Rovers fan cared about the loss that day, and …
Molby On The Spot: The Sour Grapes Gang & Slim Victories

Molby On The Spot: The Sour Grapes Gang & Slim Victories

Compared to the previous week - with victories over Leeds and Chelsea - this was a more cerebral affair, especially in terms of goals scored and how eventful the matches were; however, in the context of the season, the victory over West Ham might turn out to be more important. On Jan Molby's Anfield Index show there was plenty of topics to discuss, including: using the whole squad, while balancing the need to keep them all happy, and how that …
Liverpool 0 - 1 Inter Milan - Man Of The Match

Liverpool 0 - 1 Inter Milan - Man Of The Match

Trent Alexander-Arnold A great game for this special talent. His attacking play is undeniable, with two brilliant deliveries nearly seeing both his giant centre-backs score in the first half. Showed guile and control throughout on the ball, and was a constant threat in possession. His defensive ability can no longer be in doubt. Great coverage, awareness and strength, against a very good European team. Was able to control situations with maturity and confidence, and is becoming a leader in this …
Liverpool 0-1 Inter (2-1 agg.): Observations as Reds edge past I Nerazzurri

Liverpool 0-1 Inter (2-1 agg.): Observations as Reds edge past I Nerazzurri

Liverpool are through to the quarter-finals of the UEFA Champions League after beating Inter Milan 2-1 on aggregate. Lautaro Martinez ripped one beyond Alisson just after the hour but Inter had the wind in their sails for all of two minutes before Alexis Sanchez picked up a second yellow. The reigning Serie A champions retreated, hoping for a counterattacking opportunity that never really materialised. They proved themselves to be an excellent side over the first two legs, and can take …
