Put Some Respect On Klopp’s Name

Put Some Respect On Klopp’s Name

I tend to only glance at social media these days, essentially if I’m checking on team sheets, injuries and transfer gossip.

I wrote the following words on Sunday morning, and was happy to later hear Dave Hendrick state the very same thoughts on the latest edition of RAW. I could have deleted and rerouted my words, but I think the thoughts …

Nottingham Forest 0 - 1 Liverpool - Man Of The Match

Nottingham Forest 0 - 1 Liverpool - Man Of The Match

Joe Gomez A brilliant defender, that is simply part of an elite group of defenders. His versatility allowed him a rare start, and he gave his very best throughout. A clearly different version to Trent’s world class level, but Joe was intent on making a strong impression. Some strong running and smart passing was even dent throughout, and he far outshone Kostas at left. Showed great willingness to give width, tremendous energy throughout, and covered his centre backs with a …

Was understandably lacking in the normal Trent style attacking sense, but any hesitation in possession was made up for with energy and intent. His covering pace got him out of danger when …

Liverpool 2 - 1 Norwich - The FA Cup 5th Round Player Ratings

Liverpool v Norwich - The FA Cup 5th Round Player Ratings Alisson Becker - 7.5 Back in nets, with some game time needed before the weekend. Had very little to do through the first half, other than an early and late flurry by Norwich. Wasn’t at fault for the goal, and produced a great save late on. His vocal leadership was needed.
