Klopp Commitment Great News For Liverpool Youth

Klopp Commitment Great News For Liverpool Youth

Jurgen Klopp delighted the Liverpool fan base last month when the news broke that the German had signed a new contract to keep him tied to the club until 2024. After delivering a sixth Champions League success, a 97 point Premier League campaign and, as it stands,  on course to guide the Reds to a record breaking domestic campaign, the former Borussia Dortmund coach renewing his deal at Anfield is brilliant news for the present day. There will be a …
Liverpool 1-0 Everton: Who Was Boy of the Match?

Liverpool 1-0 Everton: Who Was Boy of the Match?

Even against a Liverpool team with an average age of 8 years old, Everton still could not find a way to win at Anfield. That old Shankly quote about the Liverpool reserves being the second best team on Merseyside has never been more relevant than it is today. The Reds move into the 4th round of the FA Cup, despite Klopp’s best efforts, and continue their incredible run of form at home. In goal, Adrian had a lot more to …
Why Leicester aren't title rivals to Liverpool just yet

Why Leicester aren't title rivals to Liverpool just yet

Very few people envisaged Liverpool heading into the festive period with a 14 point advantage over Manchester City, yet here we are. Even fewer people would’ve expected Brendan Rodgers’ Leicester City to be the team’s nearest rivals at the summit of the Premier League table. But this is the situation we currently find ourselves in.  The Foxes currently occupy second position and have a six point lead over the reigning champions. They find themselves eight behind Liverpool but the two …
Oxlade-Chamberlain vs. Palace: To Start or Not to Start?

Oxlade-Chamberlain vs. Palace: To Start or Not to Start?

What did you learn from the international break? Very little, right? The absence of domestic football left a gaping void, forcing us to actually do other things with our lives and perhaps even contemplate watching England play. If there's one thing that the last week or so has taught us, it's that Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain remains a formidable footballer and a gem of a character. The 26-year-old scored and assisted for England, against Montenegro and Kosovo respectively, further suggesting he will …
Fabinho Masterclass Completes Magical 12 Months

Fabinho Masterclass Completes Magical 12 Months

November 3rd, 2018. Arsenal 1-1 Liverpool. The Reds have just earned a credible draw away to the Gunners, admittedly failing to hold onto a lead but also outlining their Premier League title credentials. On an evening when a number of Liverpool players shone at the Emirates, in particular Virgil van Dijk, much of the post-match talk surrounded Fabinho. Experiencing his gelling-in period at Anfield, the Brazilian was well off the pace throughout, lacking dynamism and influence at the base of …
Set-Pieces and Dark Arts: Chelsea 1-2 Liverpool

Set-Pieces and Dark Arts: Chelsea 1-2 Liverpool

Liverpool managed to extend their 100% record with a win over Chelsea on Sunday, and while the result deserves praise, the Reds were quite poor with and without the ball. It seemed obvious amidst the second half that Liverpool were shattered, both mentally and physically. Loose passes and leggy ground covering showed that the trip to Naples had taken its toll. What's important, though, is that Liverpool managed to pick up 3 points in a fixture that ended the very …
Klopp's Still Got an Ace Up his Sleeve

Klopp's Still Got an Ace Up his Sleeve

It’s cliché to say it. It really is. “Player (x) returning from injury, he’s practically a new signing!” It’s tired, it’s worn out, it’s ostensibly untrue and it’s essentially trying to justify, rightly or wrongly, inactivity. Yet, it sort of does feel like Naby Keita is a whole new signing. Not in the conventional sense, because Liverpool fans have been eagerly anticipating the arrival of Naby Keita for a long, long time. Since he was first announced – a season …
Four From Four - Business as Usual for Liverpool

Four From Four - Business as Usual for Liverpool

We are four games into the Premier League season, so naturally, it’s time for an irritating international break. International breaks, of course, have their benefits: being able to focus on the Ashes, the slight increase in quality in David Squires’ cartoons, managing to go a whole weekend without having some sort of stress-induced heart attack, and for those of us that actually enjoy it, the prospect of seeing your national team play. There are some benefits for Liverpool and its …
Why Keita could be key to Liverpool becoming English Kings

Why Keita could be key to Liverpool becoming English Kings

In the context of a football match, a midfielder receiving the ball, dawdling on it, eating a few seconds of time before laterally recycling it is no big deal. It happens umpteen times in the course of every game. In the case of Naby Keita’s Liverpool career, however, it could be symbolic of the Guinean fully acclimating to both Jurgen Klopp’s tactical demands and the pressure’s associated with playing for a worldwide footballing institution such as the Reds. In a …
Why Madrid Must Be Liverpool's Crowning Moment

Why Madrid Must Be Liverpool's Crowning Moment

This Liverpool team has to be remembered. This has been the main thought going round my head in recent weeks, during what has been one of the most emotionally draining seasons in memory. For anyone under the age of 40, I doubt I'm alone in saying a Reds side hasn't felt this special before - none have left you feeling so connected and in love with it. There have been some top class teams since the glory days, but this …
