Why not both?

Why not both?

A lot has changed since the spring of 2014. Only two players from that squad are still with the club - the now captain Jordan Henderson and our back up keeper. And yet five years later we find ourselves in a somewhat similar position - playing Chelsea at Anfield in what could be a title decider. But unlike back then this Liverpool challenge does not feel like a one-off miracle run. We've seen the team evolve since Jurgen Klopp proclaimed …
Rotation, Rotation, Rotation - Give It A Rest

Rotation, Rotation, Rotation - Give It A Rest

A change is as good as rest is how the saying goes, but with a maximum of eleven games to go and only four-midweek matches, is it time for Klopp to give it a rest with his rotation game? The run-in could favour Liverpool, with City having Chelsea, Spurs and Man Utd still to go, while our biggest game is surely against Chelsea at home. Therefore it's surely time for Klopp to pick his best XI in every game — …
The Final Stretch for Liverpool: Spurs, Supporters and Success

The Final Stretch for Liverpool: Spurs, Supporters and Success

We’re here. We’ve arrived. The final international break of the season has passed us by, and we’re on the cusp of greatness. With one game in hand, we’re top of the league by two points. We have our two toughest games of the season at home, starting with Tottenham on Sunday followed by Chelsea in a few weeks time and our closest rivals, whilst being brilliant, have proved to be human this year more so than they did last year. …
Time For Bobby Firmino To Step Up

Time For Bobby Firmino To Step Up

With seven games to go in the Premier League, and at most five games to go in the Champions League, Liverpool are reaching the crunch. And when you’re at the crunch, you need your most important players to step up. And one of those players is Roberto Firmino. Bobby is a player who has gone somewhat under the radar this season but remains widely considered one of Liverpool’s most important players – a term that I’m convinced has lost all …
Liverpool vs Porto: Champions League Quarter Final Is No Formality

Liverpool vs Porto: Champions League Quarter Final Is No Formality

After emphatically dumping Nivo Kovac's Bayern Munich out of the Champions League this week, Liverpool were handed what on paper seems to be a preferable quarter-final after being drawn against Porto. The 1-3 scoreline at the Allianz Arena along with a composed and assured performance in Bavaria has led many to believe that Liverpool are in with a serious chance of replicating last year's European form and making it all the way to the final for a second consecutive season …
Why Man United game is perfect preparation for Bayern away

Why Man United game is perfect preparation for Bayern away

You really have to have a long think back to remember a week of such magnitude for a Liverpool team. After Tuesday's stalemate with Bayern Munich, Klopp takes his side across the M62 to face bitter rivals Manchester United in what is a crucial game in the Reds' hopes to clinch a first league title since 1991. It's no doubt been a huge week for Liverpool in both the Champions League and the Premier League, and the return leg against …
Liverpool vs Bayern Munich - Potential Key Battles

Liverpool vs Bayern Munich - Potential Key Battles

Liverpool host Bundesliga Champions and formidable opponents Bayern Munich on Tuesday on what is set to be an absolutely massive Champions League night at Anfield – the kind that usually leads to a colossal tussle. But the Reds are shorn of arguably their most impressive player in Virgil Van Dijk, and there’s no telling quite how makeshift their defence will look – or the knock-on effect that this will have on the midfield. So what are the potential key battles …
Does Fabinho at centre back actually make sense?

Does Fabinho at centre back actually make sense?

It's starting to really get to the crunch period of the season for Liverpool. The next batch of fixtures see the Reds come up against the German powerhouse that is Bayern Munich in the Champions League before a pivotal trip to Old Trafford to face a resurgent Manchester United side in a potential title-deciding Premier League clash. Perhaps not the best time to be in the midst of an injury crisis that has taken out a number of players - …
Mentality, mettle, mistakes and Liverpool

Mentality, mettle, mistakes and Liverpool

Liverpool never seem to do things the easy way. The 2005 Champions League victory was a prime example, from the dramatic late Steven Gerrard goal against Olympiakos to ensure qualification from the group stages to the nerve-wracking win over Chelsea in the semi-final. We all know the emotional rollercoaster that was the incredible penalty shoot-out success against AC Milan. Over the past three decades, we’ve seen defeat snatched from the jaws of victory and success usually come in the most …
100 Years of Bob Paisley and the Danger of Comparisons

100 Years of Bob Paisley and the Danger of Comparisons

Before the home win at Crystal Palace—a game which saw Red hearts beat all the faster for the first time in a while—the ground paid tribute to Bob Paisley, who was born 100 years ago this week. At half-time, Anfield witnessed a cavalcade of his best players such as Kenny Dalglish, Graeme Souness, Jimmy Case, Phil Neal and, greatest of all, Ian Callaghan, come on to the pitch to rightly praise the soft-spoken Geordie. I’ve no doubt that such a …
