Liverpool Fans - It's Okay to Hope, This is Why We're Here

Liverpool Fans - It's Okay to Hope, This is Why We're Here

It’s not the hope that kills you. It’s never the hope that kills you. Languishing in mediocrity, having to play in Macedonia on a miserly Thursday night, with aspirations of only being relevant again, that’s what kills you. Being nowhere, existing but not prospering, that’s what kills you. Seeing your best players leave, that’s what kills you. Replacing them with players who can’t possibly fill the void, at the behest of a faulty transfer strategy and wildly obscene ego of …
Ageism Is Working Against James Milner

Ageism Is Working Against James Milner

When a footballer hits 30, or at least in and around that age, something instantly changes in the way they are perceived by supporters. Every bad performance is suddenly due to their advancing years, every misplaced pass is because they’re not as young as they once were and they are used as target practice every time their side suffers defeat. Steven Gerrard even suffered from it, which says it all. This is something we are suddenly seeing come to the …
Liverpool's Midfield - Still Not Consistent Enough

Liverpool's Midfield - Still Not Consistent Enough

Liverpool's unbeaten start in the league came to an end last week, which prompted old insecurities in the supporters. A lot of finger-pointing and scapegoating has taken place since. When the starting line-ups were announced there were only two ways it was going to go - the Reds don't lose, and nobody cares, or City beat us, and we all blame the midfield and Dejan Lovren. The Croatian is a topic for another day. I decided to look into how …
Why Liverpool Were Wrong To Loan Nathaniel Clyne

Why Liverpool Were Wrong To Loan Nathaniel Clyne

Today, it was announced that Liverpool had agreed a deal with Bournemouth to loan out Nathaniel Clyne until the end of the season. The deal will not come with an option to buy for the south coast club – with the deal merely understood to be put in place for the 27-year-old to play more first-team football. Clyne joined Liverpool in July 2015, who were then managed by Brendan Rodgers. Joining from Southampton for a fee worth £12.5million, many Reds …
Dejan Lovren's deja vu

Dejan Lovren's deja vu

For many, Liverpool’s defeat to Manchester City must’ve felt like a rerun of a movie you’d seen plenty of times throughout the years. A midfield three lacking creativity, picked solely for their energy and experience of the system being deployed, was swarmed by counterparts possessing superior quality both on and off of the ball. The Reds lacked rhythm and their service to the front three was erratic at best as they struggled to string passes together and stamp their authority …
Time To Respond, Liverpool

Time To Respond, Liverpool

Thursday's narrow defeat at the Etihad was, in many ways, the perfect depiction of football. A game primed on fine margins, Liverpool could easily have extended their lead at the top of the Premier League to ten points but for a desperate goal-line clearance. Technology would reveal the ball was within just 1.12 centimetres of crossing the line and giving the Reds the lead before a customary strike from Sergio Aguero struck at the heart of Klopp's side. Things could've …
Why there’s every reason to believe Liverpool can win the league

Why there’s every reason to believe Liverpool can win the league

Supporting this Liverpool team is a real joy at the moment. After an incredible December, the mighty Reds sit at the top of the table. A healthy 7 point lead over nearest rivals City. If that kind of lead had been offered to any Liverpool fan a month ago, every fan would have bitten your hand off. Yet here we are. Destiny awaits It seems harsh that after such a tremendous end to a memorable year another serious test awaits …
Can Liverpool Beat Manchester City in the EPL Race?

Can Liverpool Beat Manchester City in the EPL Race?

As Christmas is looming and the first half of the season in EPL is almost done, all the eyes are on Liverpool and Manchester City, the two teams that appear to be destined to finish 1 and 2 on this season’s table. The Manchester side victoriously broke into the season and looked invincible until Chelsea finally ended their undefeated run, leaving Liverpool as the only side without a defeat after 16 games. Both teams have done an impressive job so …
Brexit Babes Boom in Value as January Approaches

Brexit Babes Boom in Value as January Approaches

Brexit!  And you thought you would be able to avoid politics in the warm, comfortable cocoon that is Premier League football.  Any small nudge to the freedom of movement principle could have a nuclear bomb sized impact on England’s top division.  Liverpool start a maximum of 5 UK born players for any given match these days.  Of all of the players who have seen the pitch this season, 12 players are foreign-born while 7 originate from the British Isles.  For …
Explosive Salah and Sadio Back With A Bang

Explosive Salah and Sadio Back With A Bang

As they followed up a terrific game against Red Star by exploding into life against Cardiff, it once again became clear that Sadio Mané and in particular Mo Salah remain the key cogs in Liverpool’s attacking displays. The two players have seven goals each in all competitions this season, with Salah also notching three assists, and between them they’ve scored over half of Liverpool’s twenty league goals and what’s clear is that they’re the two players that will have to …
