Red Relationships and Lilywhite Hearts

Red Relationships and Lilywhite Hearts

Sometimes a relationship blows up and both parties end up locked in a contest to show the other what they could have had. The last time Liverpool faced Spurs in London the Reds were thoroughly and unmercifully dumped. Since that painful day, the main source of the drama, Dejan Lovren has been buried, resurrected and replaced. The man taking over for him was the right back on that October afternoon, Joe Gomez. Simon Mignolet was the man in goal, was …
The Jordan Henderson Criticism

The Jordan Henderson Criticism

Three games, nine points, no goals conceded, top of the league. And we’re not even playing that well. West Ham, aside we haven’t quite been at our swashbuckling best. Firmino is yet to score and, if viewed objectively, we’ve had to hang on a bit in our last two games so we’re not quite at the 1987-88 vintage where dicked everyone 4-0 week in, week out. That’s a good thing though. Liverpool, like the idea of America, is supposed to …
Liverpool Need to Take Advantage of World Cup Hangovers

Liverpool Need to Take Advantage of World Cup Hangovers

The Premier League season starts in just a few days. And the spectre of the World Cup still hangs over the Premier League’s top six. This was a World Cup in which the Premier League’s top teams all had plenty of players not just participating but going the distance – and certain teams will benefit from that. Liverpool need to be one of the beneficiaries. It’s expected that Roberto Firmino and his Brazilian teammate Alisson Becker will start against West …
Would the 3-5-2 formation suit Liverpool?

Would the 3-5-2 formation suit Liverpool?

Gareth Southgate’s England have been playing a relatively unused and potentially interesting variation of 3-5-2 formation at the World Cup – with a lopsided back three, wing-backs who are multi-faceted and a three-man midfield with only one defensive player in it. It’s a well-balanced formation that suits England very well. The back three is shielded by Jordan Henderson, but ahead of him, there are four very attacking individuals who are able to link up, drop deep and run in behind. …
Liverpool v Tottenham Hotspur Preview - Reds Retribution?

Liverpool v Tottenham Hotspur Preview - Reds Retribution?

The Details Venue - Anfield, Liverpool Referee - Jonathan Moss Date & Time - Sunday, February 4th @ 16:30 GMT Current Odds - Liverpool 21/20, Draw 13/5, Spurs 12/5 Form Liverpool Form On Tuesday night, Liverpool did what they had to. A calm, composed, and professional performance from Klopp's men led to a convincing 3-0 win at Huddersfield. The midfield of Henderson, Can, and Milner, certainly lacked a creative spark and any real incisiveness but they eventually passed their way into the Huddersfield area …
Dejan Lovren: The Buck Doesn't Stop There

Dejan Lovren: The Buck Doesn't Stop There

Sometime after 4.15pm yesterday, a collection of mumbles, conversations and downright vitriol ran around the away section at Wembley. ‘He’s got to take him off.’ ‘We’re going to get battered here. Fuck’s sake, Jurgen.’ ‘Get that useless twat off now!’ Later on some people speculated that Dejan Lovren’s was the worst performance ever given by a Liverpool player. That got me thinking. My mind flew to a John Arne Riise display at Craven Cottage years ago when I seriously wondered …
Return Of Under-Appreciated Lallana Key For Liverpool

Return Of Under-Appreciated Lallana Key For Liverpool

The brilliance of this Liverpool team is its attack, with Jurgen Klopp a naturally positive manager who thrives off his players performing with fluency and freedom. The Reds’ defending may have left plenty to be desired under the charismatic German, but his side have produced some truly great attacking performances in the two years since he took charge. One man who has often been a catalyst in these displays, and everything good about Liverpool’s relentless style, is Adam Lallana. The …

Transfermageddon: Liverpool's Doomsday Plan

Transfermageddon: Liverpool's Doomsday Plan

A week from August.  Less than three weeks from Liverpool’s opening match of the season. The Reds have signed one of the best forwards in Italy, a promising young left-back, and stole a striker prospect from a rival. Our two biggest targets in terms of value and publicity have become quite elusive to acquire while at the same time, two European giants, Barca and Juve, are now circling ominously over midfield stars, Phil Coutinho and Emre Can. Tick tock.  Tick …
The Seven Year Itch | FSG - A Review

The Seven Year Itch | FSG - A Review

In October of 2010, Fenway Sports Group purchased Liverpool FC for £300 million. In his first statement as owner, John Henry claimed,
'We're here to win and we'll do whatever is necessary.'
Fast-forward almost seven years later, and fans are still divided as to whether FSG have been good owners for the club, and whether the club has progressed, regressed, or simply remained stationary for this period. Under FSG, Liverpool FC have had four managers: Roy Hodgson (sacked January 2011), Kenny …
