If You Don’t Know Me By Now…

If You Don’t Know Me By Now…

I wanted to distract a little from the joys of the transfer window, so would like to share some thoughts on one of the reds' greatest ever central defenders. Hint: it’s not Dejan Lovren. In 2008 Chelsea and Liverpool met on four separate occasions throughout the calendar year. The first, on February 10th (towards the back end of the 2007/08 season), saw Chelsea and the reds draw 0-0 at Stamford Bridge in the Premier League. The season's start saw the …
Don’t Look Back In Anger

Don’t Look Back In Anger

The nervous nature and anticipation of a big major game rarely sees the emotional ride end when the final whistle blows. There’s sometimes jubilation, now and then dismay, and here and there it’s bitter annoyance. Football can offer the best of times, yet deliver periods of distress that can be absolute weekend destroyers. As match week three drew to a close, there’s a few conclusions that can be garnered from this early period. It’s a short duration in the early …
Rafa to Everton: Is it really that bad?

Rafa to Everton: Is it really that bad?

Seeing Rafa Benitez holding an Everton scarf above his head was a surreal moment. Did any of us ever think we'd see the day? It is one of the most controversial appointments for some time and is sure to send shockwaves across Merseyside and beyond. Having been an adored figure at Liverpool between 2004 and 2010, we are now going to have to witness Benitez trying to work his magic across Stanley Park. It's fair to say Everton fans have …
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 …
Would Istanbul glory pip Liverpool's 2005 heroics?

Would Istanbul glory pip Liverpool's 2005 heroics?

The idea of this season ending in glory for Liverpool seems little more than a pipe dream, if we're being completely honest. It has been a disastrous campaign for the Reds, with injuries depleting them and their Premier League title defence going out in a whimper. Not only that, but a top-four finish now looks highly unlikely, too. If that Thursday night graveyard shift in the Europa League is to be avoided next season, it looks as though Liverpool will …
Liverpool's route to another potential Istanbul final unveiled in Champions League draw

Liverpool's route to another potential Istanbul final unveiled in Champions League draw

Liverpool will face Spanish giants Real Madrid in the quarter-finals of the Champions League as revealed in today's draw in Switzerland. Jürgen Klopp's men travel to Madrid for the first leg on April 6th or 7th before welcoming Zinedine Zidane and co to Anfield for the return fixture a week later. The last time the sides met was the 2018 Champions League final in Kyiv. Real Madrid won 3-1 after a night to forget for Loris Karius in the Liverpool …
Liverpool Fall To Record Fifth Home Defeat In A Row in Chelsea Loss

Liverpool Fall To Record Fifth Home Defeat In A Row in Chelsea Loss

Liverpool fell to club-record fifth consecutive Premier League home defeat with a 1-0 loss to Chelsea at Anfield. Mason Mount's first-half goal separated the teams in a result that could well prove a hammer blow to the Reds' Champions League qualification prospects. Controversy ensued when Jurgen Klopp replaced Mohamed Salah late on, despite the Egyptian looking like the host's best chance of manufacturing a goal, with Sadio Mane and Roberto Firmino -- both of whose performances were well below their …
What went wrong against Chelsea

What went wrong against Chelsea

Losing and getting beat are two different things entirely. Many things in football are random and this can play a huge part in performances not getting the results they deserve. You can take those losses on the chin, sort of. For example, in some games Liverpool have lost this season, they’ve been the better side, they’ve had the better chances, but they’ve not had the required luck. Play them 100 times over and the Reds win 95 of them, that …
Jürgen Klopp offers explanation for Chelsea victory at Anfield

Jürgen Klopp offers explanation for Chelsea victory at Anfield

Liverpool boss Jürgen Klopp watched his side fall to a fifth successive Premier League defeat at Anfield. It is the first time that has happened in the club's 129-year history. Chelsea were the better side on the night as they ran out 1-0 winners thanks to Mason Mount's excellent individual effort late in the first half. Klopp gave his take on the game at the post-match press conference:
"Intense game, tight game, one very decisive moment decided the game - …
Will this be Liverpool's starting eleven to face Chelsea tonight at Anfield?

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

Liverpool and Chelsea meet tonight at Anfield in the Premier League. We've had a look at Jürgen Klopp's likely starting lineup for this one. Tonight's game is a massive clash in terms of the race for a top-four finish in the Premier League. Adrián put in a solid performance on Sunday as Liverpool won 2-0 at Sheffield United to bring an end to a four-game losing streak. Caoimhin Kelleher had still been injured while first-choice goalkeeper Alisson Becker was out …
