Livin' with Vida Lovren - Reds seek second Croatian

Livin' with Vida Lovren - Reds seek second Croatian

Liverpool has several up and down performers, but their most mercurial has been on a helluva high since the calendars turned to 2018. The World Cup has been no exception, as Croatia have made the elite eight, allowing only two goals in four matches. Dejan Lovren’s stock has risen so high apparently that Liverpool have begun to consider transfer deals for anyone in his radius. According to reports out of Turkey, Lovren’s back line buddy, Domagoj Vida has been the …

2018-19 Premier League fixture reaction. The season we win it?

With the recent disappointment of the proposed Nabil Fekir signing falling through, Liverpool fans have been in need of a distraction to take their minds off the circus that the transfer window rumour mill. Not only is the World Cup due to begin today (hooray football is back!), but the 2018-19 Premier League fixture list has also been released. As a fan base, we have the tendency to dwell on frustrations of the past, so the 2018-19 fixture list is …
Lascelles or Tarkowski: Who's the Better Fit?

Lascelles or Tarkowski: Who's the Better Fit?

The wheels of Liverpool’s busy summer have already begun spinning. Even as they head to a Champions League final, rumours have been rife regarding those who will arrive in the summer: The Independent’s Miguel Delaney reported that Michael Edwards has been tasked with finding a centre-half partner for Liverpool’s perceived most important signing in recent memory, Virgil van Dijk. The first two names out of the block share a nationality, and were both unfortunate to not make Gareth Southgate’s twenty-three-man …
The Game That Time Will Forget | Everton 0 Liverpool 0

The Game That Time Will Forget | Everton 0 Liverpool 0

Last month saw the release of Tony Evans’ Two Tribes book. It looks at the 1985-86 season set against the backdrop of social and political turmoil in and around the city at the time. Despite the shame of Heysel, the impact of Thatcherism and a city still reeling from Liverpool City Council’s war with Westminster, there was plenty to be proud about. The music scene – both here and in nearby Manchester - had never been stronger as young Liverpool …
Everton Draw Exposes Liverpool's Lack of Attacking Depth

Everton Draw Exposes Liverpool's Lack of Attacking Depth

It doesn’t take a rocket scientist to point out that Dom Solanke and Danny Ings are not feasible replacements for Bobby Firmino and Mo Salah. And certainly, this observation has been met with choruses of sarcastic comments, both from within the Liverpool fandom and from wider football circles. But it’s nevertheless worth looking at, especially in comparison to Liverpool’s Champions League quarter-final opponents. Whilst Liverpool rested Robertson, Alexander-Arnold, Salah, Firmino and Oxlade-Chamberlain against Everton, Man City allowed Walker, Laporte, De …

Observations as the Derby Ends in a Drab Stalemate

The Merseyside Derby ended in yet another dull stalemate as Liverpool and Everton played out a 0-0 draw. The result ensured that Liverpool stayed in the top 3 as they look forward to the second leg of the Champions League quarter-finals. The 'put-together' line up With one eye on the Champions League, and the mounting injury concerns meant that there was a real struggle putting together a cohesive lineup. The line up had the returning Clyne start for the first …

I Took A Nap - Key Stats from LFC 0-0 Everton

Liverpool made changes and were extremely lethargic as Everton held them to a 0-0 draw at Goodison Park. But what were the key stats from what was an incredibly boring affair? Snore Draw This was a game in which nobody really created a lot, with 0-0 probably the right scoreline. In terms of expected goals, Liverpool edged it 0.97 to 0.77, with both teams missing their one respective big chance. This was only the second time this season in a …

Everton 0 - 0 Liverpool: Derby Day Stalemate at Goodison

The Details Date: 7/4/2018 Venue: Goodison Park, Liverpool Background Due to Liverpool's progression in this season's Champions League, today's derby took a little step down in the list of priorities for Klopp and his team. The Reds made five changes with a view to protecting the full-strength eleven for Tuesday night's game at the Etihad. That's not to say, however, that Liverpool did not still put a strong team out, a team that should be able to challenge for all three points …
Player Ratings as Liverpool's Undefeated Derby Streak Continues

Player Ratings as Liverpool's Undefeated Derby Streak Continues

"Need someone to do the post-match player ratings" was the request from AI's supremo Gags Tandon. "Great!", I thought; after wallopping City, Liverpool look like they can trounce any team in the world right now, and this will be my chance to dish 10 ratings all round for perhaps the greatest derby mauling of all time. How wrong I was. As I watched the game, I saw sparks and flickers of something, as Liverpool had the ball, but ultimately, Everton …
