Liverpool Remain Odds-On Favorites to Win Champions League Group E, But Tread Carefully …

With one win and one loss in their first two Champions League matches, Liverpool sit tied for second in Group E with Salzburg on three points, one behind leaders Napoli and two ahead of last-place Genk. The Reds rebounded from a 2-0 setback in Italy on Matchday 1 with a closer-than-expected 4-3 victory over Salzburg at Anfield in early October. Jurgen Klopp’s men won’t be happy with their performances to date. The loss to Napoli speaks for itself. The Italians …
Four wonderful years of Jurgen Klopp at Liverpool

Four wonderful years of Jurgen Klopp at Liverpool

People often say that you remember exactly where you were when huge moments in history occurred. I'll never forget hearing about the terrorist attack on the World Trade Center on the bus home from school, for example, or seeing a kids TV show interrupted in order to inform me of the death of Princess Diana. I must immediately stress that I don't put the arrival of a Liverpool manager on a par with those events mentioned above, in terms of …
How Trent Alexander-Arnold Has Become Klopp's de Bruyne

How Trent Alexander-Arnold Has Become Klopp's de Bruyne

No, for the love of God, Trent Alexander-Arnold is not as good as Kevin de Bruyne. Just examine the radar below, courtesy of understat.com, for evidence of that. Kevin de Bruyne, under Pep Guardiola, is a phenomenon, involved in everything Manchester City do on a football pitch. Without him, as evidenced by the performance against Wolves, they lose their incisors, they lack the ferocity, and they are without one of the best footballers on the planet right now. Good, now …
100% Liverpool Writing Their Own Script

100% Liverpool Writing Their Own Script

Liverpool notched their 8th straight Premier League win of the season, their 17th in a row total and moved eight points clear at the top of the league with a late penalty against Leicester. There was a sense of palatable relief as James Milner stepped up in the 95th minute to down Leicester and give Liverpool the three points. It was not a day where Liverpool deserved to drop points, but it increasingly looked like a day where they would. …
Robertson's late heroics showcase his mental fortitude

Robertson's late heroics showcase his mental fortitude

Approximately 6:15pm on Sunday, September 22nd: Liverpool supporters are going through hell. Leading 2-1 at Stamford Bridge despite a shoddy, tired-looking second-half performance, they are on the rack away to Chelsea. Mason Mount has already missed a glorious opportunity to ensure the Blues become the first team to take points off the Reds this season and they are making one last push for an equaliser. Then Andy Robertson emerges as the left-back colossus we have grown to idolise, producing a …
Liverpool Must Improve

Liverpool Must Improve

Absurd title, isn’t it? Allow me to explain... Every Premier League game these days feels like a ‘must win’ for Liverpool Football Club. Such is life when you’re effectively chasing perfection and trying to outdo this Manchester City outfit. The opening five (admittedly kind) league matches have been expertly navigated by Jürgen Klopp, yielding the perfect 15 point return that Liverpool fans dreamed of when the season began. Now though, as summer ebbs away and the Champions League kicks off …
Oxlade-Chamberlain adds another dimension to Liverpool midfield

Oxlade-Chamberlain adds another dimension to Liverpool midfield

The 4-1 dismantling of Norwich City or the Super Cup triumph over Chelsea should be the highlight of the two weeks old 2019/20 campaign but the biggest positive so far arrived in the 2-1 victory against Southampton.  No, it wasn’t Sadio Mane continuing his destructive 2019 with a goal and an assist. It wasn’t Roberto Firmino opening his account for the campaign just days after coming off the bench to change the game against Frank Lampard’s side in Istanbul.  It …
Roberto Firmino could be even better this season

Roberto Firmino could be even better this season

Roberto Firmino has started the season like he means business. It isn’t something Liverpool fans are used to with the Brazilian usually looking off the pace when he returns to pre-season after a summer break.  It’s by no means comparable to a Sunday League player trotting round the pitch after a heavy Saturday night but it’s safe to say Firmino tends to enjoy his summer breaks. He picks up the pace after a few weeks but fans have got used …
There's So Much More to Football Than Winning

There's So Much More to Football Than Winning

There are very few seasons in recent memory as gripping as the 2018/19 campaign. Gritty, determined, and in a few moments, utterly magical, the season will live long in the hearts and minds of Liverpool fans. But what made it so special, was it simply just the victory in the Champions League final? It seems strange to reduce a season which featured an unprecedented league performance, and moments of bedlam, induced in no less than four occasions by Divock Origi, …
