Mason Mount: Ideal Summer Midfield Addition for Liverpool?

Mason Mount: Ideal Summer Midfield Addition for Liverpool?

We are hopefully about to witness a significant rebuild of a Liverpool midfield that has needed major tweaks for some time now. In hindsight, last summer simply had to see at least one big signing made in that area, but a mixture of FSG's unwillingness to spend and Jurgen Klopp's loyalty prevented it from happening. Things have gone from bad to worse in the middle of the park this season, with the decline of Fabinho and Jordan Henderson particularly galling …
Lessons Learned: Chelsea

Lessons Learned: Chelsea

A rather uneventful afternoon at Anfield ended goalless against Chelsea, as both sides saw their remaining but limited hopes of champions league qualification take a further dent. In truth, Liverpool deserved nothing more from a game where they offered minimal threat for the majority of the occasion. As both teams take a point and move on, we look at the lessons learned from the early kick-off in a real ninth versus tenth trade-off.SELECTION AVOIDS LOYALTY CLAIMSThere was surprise amongst many …

Liverpool 0 - 0 Chelsea - PL Player Ratings Alisson Becker - 8.0 Recalled to the side and was the decisive component in keeping the blues scoreless in the first half. His importance is both invaluable and worrying, as top sides shouldn't continue to rely on their goalkeeper. James Milner - 5.0 Struggled to adapt to a few facets of the game, and was exposed when targeted for pace. His limitations shone too much and the message to Trent must …
Stefan Bajcetic: Fabinho's Natural Heir?

Stefan Bajcetic: Fabinho's Natural Heir?

Football fans can be guilty of going overboard about a gifted young player, talking him up and predicting great things, only for him not to match the hype and be forgotten about. Anyway, speaking of which: Stefan Bajcetic is a footballer of unbelievable potential - one who can become as good as Sergio Busquets! In all seriousness, the 18-year-old looks like a genuinely special talent, having enjoyed a smattering of appearances for Liverpool this season. While some youngsters can look …
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 …

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. …
