Patience Required with Loris Karius

Patience Required with Loris Karius

Football can be strange. Fans are often found moaning about the current state of the sport, about how players are overindulged and clubs are greedy.  How everything in the player's existence is excessive - the wages, the cars and the lives they live.  So it's kind of ironic that in reality we as fans are just as greedy as the players we bemoan. One such example of this is inspired by new Reds 'keeper Loris Karius. In theory 99% of the …
Karius needs time to adapt not tons of abuse

Karius needs time to adapt not tons of abuse

Liverpool moved into second place, at least temporarily, after a 2-1 win away to Swansea, meaning the Reds go into the international break off the back of four straight league wins. A time for Reds fans to celebrate, to smile about the work Jürgen Klopp has put in so far? Not in some cases - it was time to use social media to give Liverpool's young new goalkeeper a piece of their mind. The Reds had come back from a …
A Look at Liverpool Target Loris Karius

A Look at Liverpool Target Loris Karius

Twitter was abuzz on Monday when news broke that Liverpool were 'closing in' on a £5 million move for Mainz goalkeeper Loris Karius. Does he warrant the hype or is this a familiar case of fans overhyping a target? The 22 year old German has had an extraordinary season with his club side as he helped them finish 6th and only a mere five points off a Champions League place, a standout performance was away to Bayern in the Allianz …

Man United v Liverpool: Key Battles to look out for

Liverpool take a healthy two goal lead into the Europa League second leg against Manchester United, but can be rest assured that things won't be easy at Old Trafford, as the Old Enemy will look to pull all straps to ensure that they knock the Reds out of contention for their last piece of silverware for the season.

A New Goalkeeper or Bust for Liverpool?

A New Goalkeeper or Bust for Liverpool?

First choice Liverpool 'keeper misses a game and his understudy fails to perform in his absence. Strong sense of Deja vu here isn't there? December 2014, Brendan Rodgers "indefinitely" drops Simon Mignolet after a string of errors and is replaced by Brad Jones. The Australian comes into the side and aids United as they defeat Liverpool 3-0 at Old Trafford. Diving completely the wrong way for the United opener he looked like that lad you'd stick in goal because he …
Should Liverpool Replace Simon Mignolet?

Should Liverpool Replace Simon Mignolet?

The average sandwich Liverpool have many recurring problems that previous management failed to address. As a team we're grossly misbalanced. Many frailties have been overlooked. We're buying potential and not supporting them with talented players, instead we're heaping the pressure on their shoulders and asking them to do something special. Average, functional players sandwiched in-between potential. We're in a position at the moment in which every other week we as fans are debating about why a position in the team …
Manchester United vs Liverpool: The Autopsy

Manchester United vs Liverpool: The Autopsy

At the start of the season I thought I'd do a weekly tactical piece on the previous game. Primarily looking at the attack and how Christian Benteke and Roberto Firmino were bedding in with their new teammates. The United game was horrific to watch and although I tried I couldn't really find anything tactically to be positive about. Instead, my notes happened to be filled with negatives and I hate it because usually I find a few things that I …

Liverpool v Manchester United | Premier League Preview

Liverpool v Manchester United | Premier League Preview

I’ve heard some crazy things in my time as a football fan.  Some say that Real Madrid v. Barcelona is the best match-up in the world.  From the same country, the Madrid derby has been brought into consideration in recent years.  Others will mention the Milan derby, the London derbies.  Even the Merseyside derby has been considered one of the best rivalries of all-time.  But when Manchester United come to Anfield on Sunday, the entire world will be watching.  Two …
