The Benteke Discussion

The Benteke Discussion

There’s a delirium going around the fields of Anfield road as the Klopp-coloured haze descends upon Liverpool’s once fractured fanbase. It’s a wonderful thing, really, and suddenly what malaises Liverpool possessed under a stagnant regime have turned to the riveting, pulsating ecstasies. Concerns about a lack of goals have turned into the more welcomed discussions regarding the suitability of strikers; and thus we arrive at the crux of the debate. Christian Benteke, what exactly is he? Is he the Lewandowski …
Klopp Effect - The Power Of Positivity

Klopp Effect - The Power Of Positivity

The Shackles are off Ladies and Gentlemen; our young guns are flying again! Jurgen Klopp may have been right in putting the brakes on expectation, but how can you not be excited by what is unfolding before our very eyes? 1-6 at St Marys, 1-4 at the Etihad and 1-3 at Stamford Bridge are the kind of results dreams that send fans into dreamland. Even the most optimistic of fans would never have believed we would have come away with …
Klopp Carving Out Results With Rodgers Tools

Klopp Carving Out Results With Rodgers Tools

Does He Really Need New Pliers? When interviewed following his third from last game in charge of Liverpool, Brendan Rodgers identified a lack of quality ‘tools’ as the reason for his poor managerial record in 2015. “Give me the tools, I’ll do the work” were his exact words in the aftermath of September’s 3-2 victory over relegation-threatened Aston Villa. There was a particular implement in question: the brilliant Daniel Sturridge, whose brace had just extended Rodgers’ doomed reign into what …
Divock Origi: To Be Saved By The Boss?

Divock Origi: To Be Saved By The Boss?

The arrival of Jurgen Klopp at Liverpool has kick-started a sense of euphoria surrounding the club and it's hard not to understand why. The German boss seems to have all the answers to Liverpool’s on-field problems and there's a sense of hope returning to the forgotten fortress of Anfield. Under Brendan Rodgers, there was often some lost players in the squad; players who were always over-looked, utilised ineffectively or simply disliked by Rodgers. Divock Origi, the young forward, was signed …
Can Jurgen Klopp's Teams Play the Diamond?

Can Jurgen Klopp's Teams Play the Diamond?

When many think of Jurgen Klopp they think of counter attacking football. They think of a team in yellow buzzing around the final third of the pitch in the hunt for the ball. They think of a 4231 formation. It's what he was famed for as he took a mid-table Dortmund side and transformed them into league winners. However, what some people may not know, during his early years at Dortmund Jurgen Klopp used to set them up in a …
Divock Origi - It's Time To Give Him A Chance

Divock Origi - It's Time To Give Him A Chance

Five Games in to the season and there are already calls for Rodgers head. 3 goals from 5 games is poor, however when you see that Liverpool have scored 2 or more goals in only 6 league games since January 2015, there is a deeper problem. The lack of creativity and general naivety from the manager is part of the reason for the poor form and fans want a change. The change many fans want is a new manager, however …
Five observations from Man Utd vs Liverpool

Five observations from Man Utd vs Liverpool

Writing an article like this is never easy after a horrific viewing of an abysmal display against one of your biggest rival’s both for league positions and pride. To make matters even worse, I was surrounded by a family of Manchester United supports who jumped on my back (not literally) when it came to every decision and goal which went their way. So, without further ado, let’s see what us as fans gathered from the meeting between United and Liverpool …
Are Liverpool still too reliant on Daniel Sturridge?

Are Liverpool still too reliant on Daniel Sturridge?

Eight new signings, near £90 million spent and it took a mere 4 games before it all started, yet again. "When Daniel Sturridge returns we'll start smashing teams." "We're just lacking Sturridge now, then we'll be putting teams away." Absence makes the heart grow fonder. Scrolling through Twitter I felt like I'd seen all of this before. I spoke about this last week, how the start of this season felt very familiar. Liverpool not being able to find a way …
Daniel Sturridge: Must Only Return When It's Right

Daniel Sturridge: Must Only Return When It's Right

Following on from some recent speculated reports in the press, Liverpool FC released photos of Daniel Sturridge back in light training at Melwood, as the striker continues his rehabilitation from injury. He underwent hip surgery in the United States back in May and had begun his rehabilitation there. Pictures were circulated of Sturridge running freely and even working with the ball; a sight that inevitably excited many fans. On the face of it, it's great news that our best striker …
Would Winning Alone Suffice?

Would Winning Alone Suffice?

If one reads the title of this piece, it would not be too far fetched to assume that readers might think they have entered an Arsenal/Chelsea fans blog site by accident, as this is a topic which has been a bug bear for Arsenal fans during their trophy drought ridden years. The terms 'winning ugly', 'winning at all costs', 'beautiful football', 'passing the ball into the net' 'park the bus' etc. are jibes which are often involved in such discussions. …
