Winning Mentality Comes To The Fore At Fulham

Winning Mentality Comes To The Fore At Fulham

Is it possible to love and hate a football team at the same time? It was easy to feel that way on Sunday, as Liverpool did their best to throw away valuable points at Fulham, in what would have been their most disappointing result of the season. Confidence was flowing as the Reds arrived in west London, with the 3-1 win at Bayern Munich showcasing their brilliance under Jurgen Klopp. A trip to a 19th-place struggling outfit in the spring …
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 …
11 Day Break At The Right Time For Bruised Reds

11 Day Break At The Right Time For Bruised Reds

Liverpool survived an incredible game of football to see off Crystal Palace 4-3 at Anfield. But it was a game that left the already struggling Reds bloodied, bruised and increasingly threadbare, with Rafa Camacho finishing the game at right-back, Bobby Firmino and Adam Lallana in central midfield, and Joël Matip played his first full ninety minutes since breaking his collarbone back in early December against Napoli. It’s fair to say then, that the last thing Liverpool need would be another …

Liverpool's Season Starts Here

Liverpool's Season Starts Here

The day that you arrive at a holiday destination can often have a strange feel to it. You’re still a bit jaded after a long flight, drive or however you’ve made your way there, and you don’t feel completely in holiday mode until you wake up the following morning. Call it a strange comparison - it is - but Liverpool’s season feels a bit like that. It has all been a bit stressful and tense to date, with almost no …
Crystal Palace 0 - 2 Liverpool: A Tactical Breakdown

Crystal Palace 0 - 2 Liverpool: A Tactical Breakdown

Liverpool's 2-0 victory at Selhurst Park was a perfect result. The performance itself though was a great deal detached from perfect. LFC's attacking brilliance is regularly lauded and rightfully praised, however, the response to the victory against Palace does not accurately reflect the performance itself, nor the underwhelming work of the forwards and midfield against a low block, again. Andrew Beasley wrote an excellent piece praising Liverpool, particularly the defence, and whilst his analysis of the defence is largely agreeable, …
Fabulous but Fab-less: Liverpool's Patience with Fabinho

Fabulous but Fab-less: Liverpool's Patience with Fabinho

Patience is a virtue. Sometimes, especially as football fans, we can struggle to see the bigger picture, the longer term, and we can get focused on the here and now. And we can start to question certain decisions. But we need to remember that a little patience never hurt anyone. Take Fabinho, for example. Liverpool’s first summer signing announced just two days after the Champions League final. There was an expectation amongst Liverpool fans that he would come into the …

Virgil Van Wall - Key Stats from Palace 0 Liverpool 2

Liverpool made it two wins out of two in the Premier League with a hard-fought but thoroughly deserved 2-0 win over Crystal Palace at Selhurst Park. But what were the key stats as the Reds continued their impressive start to the season? Reds Run At Palace Continues Palace are a team that most Liverpool fans hate to play, and for good reason, but Liverpool have now won all four games played at Selhurst Park under Jürgen Klopp. Admittedly most of …
Klopp's Midfield Dilemma Ahead of Crystal Palace Clash

Klopp's Midfield Dilemma Ahead of Crystal Palace Clash

At long last, there is genuine depth in Liverpool's midfield. The Reds are no longer praying for certain players to stay fit and there are now six or seven reliable, experienced figures who can be effective whenever required. This was perfectly illustrated during Sunday's 4-0 victory over West Ham, as Jurgen Klopp's men got their season off to a perfect start without even hitting top gear. As the starting lineups were announced and we all huddled around our devices like …
