Injuries Could Temporarily Solve Our Striker Puzzle

Injuries Could Temporarily Solve Our Striker Puzzle

Daniel Sturridge returned to Liverpool’s ranks against Norwich as a man under pressure. In fact, many Liverpool fans had pinned the potential successes of our season all on him, just as they had done last year with sad consequences. Liverpool’s squad for 2015/16 has been bolstered though by the incoming Benteke, Ings and Origi, which would have lifted some of the pressure of Sturridge had Liverpool’s attacking play so far not been so stale and laboured. Despite the poor attack, …
Jürgen Klopp: The Sole Candidate

Jürgen Klopp: The Sole Candidate

As Brendan Rodgers' tenure as Liverpool manager edges towards an unsavoury climax, I look to the man on every supporters' lips and why he'd make the ideal replacement. Should the Liverpool job be made available, I expect it will be highly coveted and sought after. FSG, despite recent criticisms on decision making, are extremely generous and supportive owners (for how much longer remains to be seen). The club whilst not as financially strong as the current top 4, are still …
The Importance of Jordan Henderson to Liverpool

The Importance of Jordan Henderson to Liverpool

It’s often said that you don’t know what you’ve got until it’s gone. That statement will certainly ring true with Brendan Rodgers, who is likely to be without his captain Jordan Henderson for a while after the midfielder travelled stateside to seek assistance with a heel injury. Liverpool’s captain has already missed three games and following recent results his stock has arguably never been higher. Liverpool took maximum points from the two games that Henderson started this season. In his …
Manchester United vs Liverpool: The Autopsy

Manchester United vs Liverpool: The Autopsy

At the start of the season I thought I'd do a weekly tactical piece on the previous game. Primarily looking at the attack and how Christian Benteke and Roberto Firmino were bedding in with their new teammates. The United game was horrific to watch and although I tried I couldn't really find anything tactically to be positive about. Instead, my notes happened to be filled with negatives and I hate it because usually I find a few things that I …
Emre Can, Young Foreign Players and the Blame Game

Emre Can, Young Foreign Players and the Blame Game

On September 4, 2015 Emre Can made his debut for the German national team. It is not often you have a young Liverpool player make his debut for the World Champions. So the rarity that this is calls for celebrations by all fans. Instead I found myself reflecting on a tweet of some days earlier. It was in the wake of Liverpool's horrible defeat to West Ham. The tweet was from the @AnfieldHQ account and read: Emre Can needs to …
Liverpool's Horror Show Tactics

Liverpool's Horror Show Tactics

From a very early age we're all exposed to the 'happy ever after' theory. Beast gets the Beauty. Pinocchio ends up being a real boy. Rocky Balboa defeats everybody. Danny Ocean and his 10 friends get away after robbing the Bellagio Casino, and a random player winning a jackpot at Red Flush online casino. Liverpool beat AC Milan in Istanbul. Hard work, bravery and a bit of luck and you can achieve anything. We all harboured hope that Steven Gerrard would …
Liverpool vs Manchester United – The Key Battles

Liverpool vs Manchester United – The Key Battles

Liverpool travel to Manchester United after the international break with an almost identical record after four games played. Both teams have seven points from their opening quartet of fixtures, having won two, drawn one and lost one apiece. Both teams also go into the game on the back of their solitary defeats so far. Liverpool’s 3-0 humiliation at home to West Ham still lingers in the mind while United will be looking to banish the memories of their 2-1 loss at …
The More Things Change, the More they Stay the Same for Liverpool FC

The More Things Change, the More they Stay the Same for Liverpool FC

Seven points from three games represented an excellent start to the new season for Liverpool Football Club and, its embattled manager, Brendan Rodgers. A battling if blunt display against Stoke, followed by an unconvincing showing against Bournemouth had delivered 6 points from 6, before the Reds turned in an impressive display away at the Emirates. Things were looking decent-ish, at least in terms of results, and the performances seemed to be improving. Step forward West Ham at Anfield! Saturday's absolute …
Daniel Sturridge: Must Only Return When It's Right

Daniel Sturridge: Must Only Return When It's Right

Following on from some recent speculated reports in the press, Liverpool FC released photos of Daniel Sturridge back in light training at Melwood, as the striker continues his rehabilitation from injury. He underwent hip surgery in the United States back in May and had begun his rehabilitation there. Pictures were circulated of Sturridge running freely and even working with the ball; a sight that inevitably excited many fans. On the face of it, it's great news that our best striker …
Same Old Brendan, But It’s Really FSG’s Fault

Same Old Brendan, But It’s Really FSG’s Fault

Before I start let me premise this article by saying I know its only four games into the new season. I accept there are injuries and some new players to fully settle into the squad/club. It’s early days and none of the big clubs, bar Manchester City, have had a good start and there’s a long way to go in the season. Now that’s out of the way! I’m all for positivity and confidence. Men who oozed confidence built our …
