Christopher Nkunku - Time To Take Hijack Chelsea's Attempts to Sign Him

Christopher Nkunku - Time To Take Hijack Chelsea's Attempts to Sign Him

Naby Keïta, Ibrahima Konaté and Takumi Minamino are all players that have been recruited from the RB group, either from Salzburg or Leipzig. We have also seen multiple stories linking us with various other players, and if not for COVID, we probably would have signed Timo Werner ahead of his move to Chelsea. The likes of Konrad Laimer and Noah Okafor are the latest names to do the pre January rounds, but it is another player that I believe could …
Could Mason Mount Be The Bellingham Alternative?

Could Mason Mount Be The Bellingham Alternative?

Mason Mount travels to Qatar this week for the forthcoming World Cup. His call up was never in doubt, and only an untimely injury would have scuppered his place in Gareth Southgate’s England squad. This spell away from Chelsea could be the relief he needs right now, with the West London club currently in a period of disarray. With changes of ownership, changes of managers, and the recruitment of various players a constant over the last couple of years, he …
Who Are Liverpool’s Premier League Competitors This Year

Who Are Liverpool’s Premier League Competitors This Year

For the last few years, Manchester City would be the early season team compared to Liverpool in the Premier League title race. This early season looks like a one horse race (Arsenal will inevitably fall away), and the Reds currently languish within mid table mediocrity, though thankfully not as lowly as their blue neighbours, just yet anyway. Manchester City are the club with huge domestic success during Klopp’s Anfield stay, but this could now be the moment where City have …
How This Period Can Recalibrate The Reds

How This Period Can Recalibrate The Reds

I work in mechanical engineering, and it means I often have to use various devices in order to test that which requires inspection. Having been in the industry for close to 25 years, I’m pretty aware when something isn’t quite right, and how to adjust. In order to maintain certain levels, pretty much all instrumentation requires a yearly calibration in order to fine tune the apparatus. An engineers' worth is often graded by his ability to overcome problems (or unearth …
Observations: Groundhog Day

Observations: Groundhog Day

I've seen this one before. Liverpool vs Chelsea in a domestic cup final. Both teams create lots of chances, though the Reds are slightly the better side. None of these are scored, with two excellent goalkeeping displays. Thomas Tuchel makes a sub deep in extra time, gambling on a penalty specialist. But eventually, Liverpool triumphed, holding their nerve to seal it in the shootout. Really someone should be asking what the scriptwriters have been doing these last few months, because …

Player Ratings for Liverpool 0-0 Chelsea (LFC win 6-5 on penalties)

For the third time under Jurgen Klopp, the Reds outlasted the detestable Chelsea FC in a penalty shootout to lift a trophy into the night sky. While Liverpool once again could not get a win in either regulation or extra time against the Blues, new heroes stepped up to complete the set for Herr Klopp. Alisson – 8 Shook off a knock in the first half after a clash with Marcos Alonso to put in a composed and vital display. …
Molby On The Spot: Kepa's Karma & Kelleher's Winner

Molby On The Spot: Kepa's Karma & Kelleher's Winner

Liverpool, after such an eventful campaign during the tournament - especially when they were two goals down to Leicester at Anfield - didn't expect all of that drama to be eclipsed in the final against Chelsea. Remarkably, despite the scoreline, you will struggle to see a match with more twists and turns! At one point, this all got a bit too much for Molby on the Spot host Trev Downey. Regardless of the events during the match, including disallowed goals …

Player Ratings as Reds are crowned League Cup Champions

We all need to catch our breaths after that Carabao Cup final. After an absolutely amazing 120 minutes ended 0-0, Kepa Arrizabalaga blazed the 22nd penalty of an incredible shootout over the bar, to give Jurgen Klopp his first domestic cup as manager of Liverpool. It was an even game throughout with both goalkeepers excelling in regulation time, and in extra time. It was scarcely believable that 120 minutes couldn't produce a goal. What followed was also scarcely believable penalty …
Liverpool 0 - 0 Chelsea - The League Cup Final Match Report

Liverpool 0 - 0 Chelsea - The League Cup Final Match Report

The initial stages and final Pre-match build-up was consumed with bad news, as the Spanish magician Thiago, caught an injury in the warm up. What started as a bad practical joke on Twitter, soon became reality, with Naby Keita stepping up to the first team. The tears of Thiago (on the sidelines) resonated with the Liverpool fanbase, and his failure to make the squad saw Harvey Elliott take a place on the reds bench. The reds look irregular in the …
Why James Milner started against Chelsea

Why James Milner started against Chelsea

There is a misconception that if a player starts ahead of someone else, they are the better one. In reality, they are usually just viewed as the better fit for that game by the manager. Football these days is not a one size fits all sort of thing. It really is a squad game and that is why so many teams spend ridiculous amounts of money adding depth.  This has been a topic of debate on Liverpool Twitter following the …
