Liverpool's Triumphs, Trophies and Transfers

Liverpool's Triumphs, Trophies and Transfers

With Liverpool on the brink of European glory while being linked to half of Europe the obvious question is; how much of a boost can the Reds expect in the transfer window should they return home from Kiev with number six? Will the top talents be drawn by the possibility of playing for the European champions? Given Liverpool's pedigree, we don't have to guess, we can look at what's happened in the past. After an incredible win in Istanbul over …
Liverpool Player Ratings as the Reds book their tickets for Kiev

Liverpool Player Ratings as the Reds book their tickets for Kiev

Allez, Allez, Allez! I’m tempted just to give them all 10’s.  OK, we lost the actual match 4-2, but one was a wacky own-goal and another a last second, questionable penalty.  Bottom line is that we didn’t look overly nervous as a collective and we had enough players with supreme performances to get us through.  A couple of penalty shouts that went in our favour, maybe this is what the pundits have been talking about all season when they said …
Champions League Dreams - For Liverpool, not City!

Champions League Dreams - For Liverpool, not City!

A few of my writings over the years have had reference to songs or movies of old. This one is no different. As it’s a blockbuster tie, there’s only one way to go which is Frankie Goes to Hollywood!!! We've two legs coming up against Manchester City. The fun all starts at Anfield on Wednesday 4th April. So, with that in mind... “Welcome to the Pleasuredome!” Are we ready to stand and be counted? Many a time in the annals …
Liverpool Football Club has a new identity

Liverpool Football Club has a new identity

Fast, high energy, counter-attacking football - Liverpool Football Club has a new identity. When Jurgen Klopp was appointed manager back in October 2015, Liverpool Football Club was a team that lacked any sort of identity, yes we were a historic club who once use to grace & conquer Europe on a regular basis but ask any supporter what a Liverpool side looked liked following Rodgers' dismissal and they'd find it hard to tell you. They might point you in the …
Champions League Reaction: A Tie For The Pundits More Than The Fans

Champions League Reaction: A Tie For The Pundits More Than The Fans

As I write this the early days of April 2018 contain the following fixtures. Wed 4th April: Liverpool v Manchester City Saturday 7th April: Everton v Liverpool Tuesday 10th April: Manchester City v Liverpool Three games in six days that will provide a season’s worth of drama and mayhem.

Liverpool’s Best Midfield: What Is It?

Liverpool’s Best Midfield: What Is It?

Picture the scene: Liverpool are preparing for the Champions League final in May, after a stunning march to the showcase event at Kiev's Olympic Stadium. Having seen off Porto in the last-16, probably despite somehow losing 4-0 at Anfield in the second-leg, they then dispatched of Chelsea and Man United, with last-minute winners in both ties. Sounds pretty special, doesn’t it? As Jurgen Klopp prepares his players for the biggest match in club football, he will be left with an …
Immense Salah-Firmino Partnership Continues To Grow At Liverpool

Immense Salah-Firmino Partnership Continues To Grow At Liverpool

Great Liverpool attacking pairings throughout history roll off the tongue. Ian St John and Roger Hunt excelled in the 1960s, John Toshack and Kevin Keegan were the archetypal ‘Little N Large’ combo the following decade and Kenny Dalglish and Ian Rush were perhaps the Reds’ greatest duo-in-tandem. Jumping into the Premier League era, Robbie Fowler and Stan Collymore wreaked havoc for a short time, before Steven Gerrard and Fernando Torres came so close to inspiring Liverpool to glory in 2008/09. …
Don't Believe The Hype - Liverpool 2 West Brom 3

Don't Believe The Hype - Liverpool 2 West Brom 3

Won a big game, have we? And thus Liverpool become Liverpool. While the Manchester City game was an undoubted highlight of the season, with Jurgen Klopp’s red men swamping all over the champions elect, it also marked the point where things went wrong. Firstly there was the Swansea game where Liverpool were second to every ball and then the delay-ridden debacle at Anfield on Saturday night when they slumped to lowly West Bromwich Albion in the FA Cup. Albion and …
Are Liverpool Supporters Underrating Their Own Team?

Are Liverpool Supporters Underrating Their Own Team?

As Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain fired home Liverpool’s fifth goal against Swansea on Boxing Day, there was almost a flippant feeling of, “oh well, there’s another goal to add to the tally” from some. A 5-0 win in years gone by would have been lauded to the roof, but this has just become the norm under Jurgen Klopp. It no longer feels special to trounce a fellow top-flight club, or Champions League opposition, for that matter. We are all well aware of …
Klopp Needs Our Support Now More Than Ever

Klopp Needs Our Support Now More Than Ever

My 3 part series "The Klopp Project" discussed some of the context around the club's current position and fortunes. Context is one thing, but the Spurs debacle at Wembley (Huddersfield result notwithstanding) put some things into perspective. It is undeniable that LFC and, perhaps more pertinently, Jurgen Klopp stands at a crossroad. It almost beggars belief that we're now broaching the subject of sacking Klopp. Especially considering it is only two years since the acclaimed, larger-than-life German walked into the …
