Liverpool Have Looked Great, But Not Like Champions Yet

Liverpool Have Looked Great, But Not Like Champions Yet

Before the season started, I predicted that Liverpool would finish in third behind Manchester City and Chelsea. It was clear that, with our first-team centre-backs fit again and the structure of the team restored as a result, we'd compete for the title, but I did think we'd ultimately fall short. Ten Premier League games into the season - the 'start' of the campaign boxed off, if you will - I haven't really seen anything to suggest that feeling was misguided. …

How Liverpool Defied the Odds in the 2005 Champions League Final Britons are avid bettors, whether it’s in the form of sports betting or at the casino, as our list of recent UK winners highlights. But when it comes to substantial sports payouts one of the most iconic instances happened in 2005, in Istanbul. The Value of In-Play/Live Sports Betting Some bettors are into live betting on sports, others prefer to bet-and-forget or take the approach of setting up a …
Liverpool’s Momentum Is Key

Liverpool’s Momentum Is Key

The season rolls on, and Liverpool are yet to taste defeat in any competition thus far. A quarter final place in the League Cup, a top place position in their Champions League group, and a second place berth in the Premier League represents a superb start to the season. With a home game against Brighton and then Atletico Madrid this week, the reds will then round off a busy week with a trip to West Ham. Squad management is perhaps …
We need to talk about Divock Origi

We need to talk about Divock Origi

How does Divock Origi do it?  If you piece together a highlight reel made up of all of his best moments, he’d look like one of the best players ever to put on a Liverpool shirt. There are world-class finishes amongst memorable moments that will never be forgotten.  His goal against Preston was outrageous, yet somehow expected.  My reaction was along the lines of ‘Oh, not another Origi moment of madness. That guy’.  I think he’s made me laugh more …

Fabinho & the Need For A World Class Structure

The weekend's game (versus Watford) was a joy to behold. The build up was excellent, the patterns of play varying, the overloading on point, and one performance in particular was breath taking. Games against Watford (and teams that are deemed vulnerable), are a superb means for players to find rhythm, for forwards to regain ruthless efficiency, and the defence to accrue another clean sheet. All Liverpool fans (myself included) were somewhat relieved to see players like Jordan Henderson, Naby Keita …
Atletico Madrid v Liverpool - Player Ratings

Atletico Madrid v Liverpool - Player Ratings

Alisson Becker - 8.0 Where Caoimhin Kelleher did nothing wrong, Alisson is a world class asset & his authority showed tonight. He brought assurance and dominance into a big match, and that showed. Some crucial saves kept Liverpool in the game on the first half. His ability to smother on coming forwards is the best in world football. Trent Alexander Arnold - 6.0 Defensive awareness mostly on point despite some incisive Madrid attacks, but somewhat limited going forward. Was often …
Is Mohamed Salah the best player in world football?

Is Mohamed Salah the best player in world football?

For the best part of 20 years, Lionel Messi has been the best player in the world. The likes of Luis Suarez, Cristiano Ronaldo, Neymar, Robert Lewandowski and even Gareth Bale have all been in contention for the second-best player in the world title at various times, but they’ve never eclipsed the Argentine maestro, not in my opinion anyway. A few have gotten close, but I can’t recall any of them surpassing the legendary Barcelona forward over an entire 12 …
Bobby & The Altered Dynamic

Bobby & The Altered Dynamic

For the past six seasons Roberto Firmino has been able to make the false nice position his own. His understanding of the position, its intricacies and work rate requirements have made the role very specific, and his off ball work has always been commended. His value has a goal threat has not always been as desired, but the superb goal getting of others made this a non issue. Up until the start of last season, Bobby had been able to …
