Curtis Jones - An Unfortunate Opportunity

Curtis Jones - An Unfortunate Opportunity

Opportunity can be a key instance in any elite form of sport. To be able to take advantage of certain scenarios (in order to achieve personal gain), can make a career in top level football. Patience, readiness, desire and a single-minded determination to succeed can carry one through to greatness, and within this moment, you have to be ready. When Gini Wijnaldum departed this summer, there was an overwhelming sense of loss, given his enormous impact. Names were thrown about, …
Klopp’s Campaign Management

Klopp’s Campaign Management

Stubbornness, single mindedness, arrogance and an absolute inability to adjust one's methods, can be the downfall of even the best managers in modern football. In recent years we have seen the likes of Arsene Wenger and Jose Mourinho, unable to adapt to the modern needs of Premier League football, with both departing the division at relative low points. The signs are often evident, the fall off from brilliance usually gradual, but the reason for the decline always consistent. Football changes, …
Will Curtis Jones fill the Georginio Wijnaldum void?

Will Curtis Jones fill the Georginio Wijnaldum void?

Midfielder Curtis Jones enjoyed a breakout season for Liverpool in the 2020/21 campaign, filling the void amid a spate of injuries on Merseyside. The 20-year-old now has the chance to build on his exploits by becoming a first-team regular under Jurgen Klopp. Georginio Wijnaldum’s move to Paris Saint-Germain has opened up a vacancy for a box-to-box midfielder, and Jones has all the attributes to succeed. In his 34 appearances last season, Jones scored four goals in all competitions, including the …
Liverpool's Rumoured Interest in Portugal International Persists

Liverpool's Rumoured Interest in Portugal International Persists

Liverpool have been linked with a move for Renato Sanches this summer as the club may look to add more midfielders to the squad. The rumours of Liverpool's potential interest in Sanches started almost as soon as the Euros got underway this summer. Many have questioned the Lille star's injury record and whether The Reds should be pursuing him at all. Sanches burst onto the scene during the Euro 2016 tournament becoming the youngest ever Portugal international to play at …
What went wrong against Chelsea

What went wrong against Chelsea

Losing and getting beat are two different things entirely. Many things in football are random and this can play a huge part in performances not getting the results they deserve. You can take those losses on the chin, sort of. For example, in some games Liverpool have lost this season, they’ve been the better side, they’ve had the better chances, but they’ve not had the required luck. Play them 100 times over and the Reds win 95 of them, that …
Liverpool Defeat Blades In Comfortable Win

Liverpool Defeat Blades In Comfortable Win

Liverpool moved within two points of fourth with a 2-0 victory away to Sheffield United. Goals from man of the match Curtis Jones and a deflected Roberto Firmino drive gave the Reds a richly deserved win at Bramall Lane. Were it not from the heroics of Aaron Ramsdale in the hosts' goals, the defending champions -- who had eight shots on target -- would have won by a much healthier margin, which would have reflected their dominance. With Alisson given …
Liverpool's 'crisis' merits criticism but not an overreaction

Liverpool's 'crisis' merits criticism but not an overreaction

So apparently football really does determine your mood. After an awful run of results for Liverpool, they roared back on Tuesday night, making a formidable RB Leipzig side look as average as a mid-table Premier League side. That weight was instantly lifted, whether it be for Jurgen Klopp, his players or the supporters, as the Reds produced a performance that suggests they are back. Alisson responded well after a shocking couple of games; Trent Alexander-Arnold was influential; Ozan Kabak and …
Will this be Liverpool's lineup to face Aston Villa tonight in the FA Cup?

Will this be Liverpool's lineup to face Aston Villa tonight in the FA Cup?

Liverpool travel to Villa Park tonight as they prepare to face Dean Smith's Aston Villa in the third round of the FA Cup. Jürgen Klopp is likely to field a much-changed side for The Reds as some youth talent and squad players are given the opportunity to showcase their talents in a push towards the first team. It is the ideal time for some of Liverpool's stars to be rested after some jaded-looking Premier League outings in recent weeks. Caoimhin …
Liverpool Stumble To Newcastle Draw

Liverpool Stumble To Newcastle Draw

Liverpool remain top of the Premier League table, despite a 0-0 draw with Newcastle United at St James' Park. A combination of bad finishing from the visitors -- an aspect of the game where Mohamed Salah was particularly guilty -- and the saves of Karl Darlow kept the hosts in the contest as the Reds failed to prize open their low block defence on enough occasions. Newcastle had opportunities themselves and Fabinho saved Nat Phillips blushes when he diverted a …
Curtis Jones' Rise Unveils Potential Liverpool Blueprint For Thiago

Curtis Jones' Rise Unveils Potential Liverpool Blueprint For Thiago

Curtis Jones' meteoric rise continued last Wednesday as the youngster played a vital role in Liverpool's 2-1 top of the table victory over Spurs at Anfield. The 19-year-old's all-action showing -- which is quickly becoming his trademark -- gave the Reds a platform to move back to the top of the table with a deserved victory over Jose Mourinho's Catenaccio cockerels. On the ball, the academy graduate completed 106 from 113 pass attempts. He also carried the ball effectively, entering …
