Matip Says Nothing Controversial!

Writing this column every day presents some interesting quandaries. Latest News, unlike the vast majority of other LFC pages, will never resort to clickbait titles. This has a massively detrimental effect on page views but it's a point of principle. FIVE PLAYERS KLOPP ALMOST SIGNED is the type of thing readers are free to make themselves clinically dumber by reading elsewhere. However, during a spell like the current one, where the only 'news' of note is about future building projects and …
Can Sturridge Fire Liverpool To The Champions League?

Can Sturridge Fire Liverpool To The Champions League?

When Latest News was but a tyke, Liverpool bestrode the domestic and European stage with a paradoxical blend of dignified swagger and quiet arrogance - a unique combination that often accompanies greatness, peculiar to those who know they are the best but retain a humility about that fact. From 1977 to 1984 the Reds were the finest club side on the planet and the four European Cups amassed during that period were the glittering totems of that triumphant era. Instrumental in the …
Liverpool lack imagination to overcome Hull City

Liverpool lack imagination to overcome Hull City

It is fair to say that Liverpool have been a disappointment at the start of 2017. They have been knocked out of both domestic cups with losses to Wolves in the FA Cup and Southampton in the EFL Cup. Along with the poor form in the cup Liverpool have yet to win a league match this year with draws against Manchester United, Sunderland and Chelsea and a loss to Swansea City. Prior to the turn of the year there was …
Liverpool must finish in the top four - but will it improve transfer activity?

Liverpool must finish in the top four - but will it improve transfer activity?

Liverpool's ultimate aim for the 2016-17 season must be to finish in the top four and secure a place in the Champions League. All of the top teams in the Premier League are fighting to play in Europe but will Liverpool's transfer activity really benefit from competing in the elite competition? Jurgen Klopp came under criticism in January due to Liverpool's lack of activity - and rightly so. Whether or not it was because he was unwilling to buy or …
Let's Put January Behind Us, It's Time To Kick On

Let's Put January Behind Us, It's Time To Kick On

Liverpool endured a torrid January, exiting both the EFL and FA Cup in just four days while seeing their challenge against Premier League leaders Chelsea lose momentum. Winning just one of nine fixtures in all competitions, the Reds' performances were a stark contrast from the free-flowing attacking football we were shown earlier in the season. A year long unbeaten run at Anfield came crashing down, with three defeats in the space of a week against Swansea, Southampton and Wolves. Subsequently, …
Klopp's Liverpool remain on track but concern for Sturridge is justified

Klopp's Liverpool remain on track but concern for Sturridge is justified

It's taken just over a year for the belief in Jurgen Klopp's ability to guide Liverpool to brighter days. Liverpool's inability to capitalise on a favourites' chance to reach the final of the League Cup earlier this week completed a run of seven games without a victory and, in the eyes of some, provided all the ammunition required to point the proverbial gun at Liverpool's charismatic manager, safe in their opinion that doing so is perfectly reasonable. It isn't, of course. …
Lucas Leiva: The Intangible Benefits of Liverpool's Most Experienced Player

Lucas Leiva: The Intangible Benefits of Liverpool's Most Experienced Player

I’m pleased it was Lucas. For all the talk of Jurgen’s ambitious new shavers coming in to kick start the FA Cup campaign, it took the oldest head in red to beat his man at the near post and thunder in from close range. A goal from the other end of the Woodburn/Leeds scale. Old man comes in and saves the day rather than a new buck makes a good start for Liverpool. As a man of advanced years I …
How Gerrard Made Me a Liverpool Fan

How Gerrard Made Me a Liverpool Fan

This article is going to be a lot different than what I normally write up or tweet. It’s not going to be an analysis, it’s not going to be a tactical discussion, it’s not going to be a player profile, and it’s not going to be an opinionated piece that gets people to churn their thoughts. In light of Steven Gerrard’s retirement from football as a professional player, I felt it was only right to honour the incredible journey of …
Jurgen Klopp's Year at Liverpool - a view from Germany

Jurgen Klopp's Year at Liverpool - a view from Germany

Since a year Jürgen Klopp is he manager of Liverpool F.C. – Sure this is no mind blowing news for readers of this blog. Actually for nobody who is interested in football since the German has a huge medial presence. This article answers the question how the status of Klopp has changed since he left Germany. But before I get to that point I may introduce myself because you should have the feeling that I know what I’m talking about. …
Liverpool supporters need to see the bigger picture

Liverpool supporters need to see the bigger picture

Being a Liverpool fan has never been, nor ever will be, an easy ride. The reds dominated English and indeed European Football for large portions of the 1960, 70s and 80s but, perhaps inevitably, currently find themselves languishing behind a pack of teams growing in terms of footballing credentials and, naturally, wealth. Over a decade and three managers since Liverpool last won a major trophy, Jurgen Klopp’s reds are, once again, gearing up for an assault on England’s most desirable …
