Klopp on Karius, Sturridge and Coutinho

Klopp on Karius, Sturridge and Coutinho

Last night I watched Dinosaur 13, the heart wrenching tale of the world's most impressive Tyrannosaurus Rex discovery. Sue, that's what they called her, was subsequently impounded by the FBI for dubious reasons and remained in storage for years, much to the chagrin of the hapless paleontologists who'd quite literally unearthed her. Now it may be that my brain is even more damaged than I had believed, but this struck me as the perfect metaphor for how many of us …
Steven Gerrard - 15 Key Moments From The Career Of A Legend

Steven Gerrard - 15 Key Moments From The Career Of A Legend

Last Thursday (24/11/16), Steven Gerrard confirmed his retirement from football after over eighteen years in the professional game. Gerrard spent the first seventeen years of his career at boyhood club Liverpool before moving to LA Galaxy for the final eighteen months of his glittering career. The midfielder made 748 appearances for the two clubs, scoring 191 goals in the process, and won 114 caps for England, in which he netted 21 times. Here I am going to highlight 15 key …
Liverpool's 1992 FA Cup run

Liverpool's 1992 FA Cup run

A Simpler Time Looking ahead to next season I wanted to write about a time when the FA Cup still meant a great deal to all clubs and managers. Defeat to Sevilla last month ensured that Liverpool’s focus is going to be domestically fixated next term. With no European football to contend with surely Klopp will want his men to compete on all three fronts at home? Ronnie Moran Leads Them Out On 9th May 1992, Wembley Stadium was the …
The Liverpool Kids - The Future or No Future?

The Liverpool Kids - The Future or No Future?

As seasons go, this one has been something of a bonus for those Liverpool players looking to make the break through proper into fully fledged first team players. The arrival of Jurgen Klopp offered a fresh start, and the run in the FA Cup a platform on which to grasp that opportunity and show the boss why they warranted more than just a spot in the shadows going forward. But now as we enter the twilight of a season that …
No More Cup Dreams, Focus On The League Next Season

No More Cup Dreams, Focus On The League Next Season

There're three things certain in life, death, taxes, and a Liverpool cup run. Liverpool have participated in 15 cup finals since the turn of the millennium, picking up the Champions League, the Europa League, three league cups and two FA Cups and firmly establishing themselves as kings of cup competitions. Cup fever has been a welcome distraction from the reality of our recent Premier League history, and this Thursday Europa League Semi-Final will provide yet another diversion from our 8th …
Palace fume - all Bent(eke) out of shape

Palace fume - all Bent(eke) out of shape

Bask in it. Allow yourself this moment. Warm up these cold March days with the fume that Liverpool generated with the stoppage time win over Crystal Palace. Christian Benteke has been a much maligned figure since his £32 million move from Aston Villa in the summer of 2015, but against Palace he united the fan base and paid back his transfer fee, and then some. People are going on about this as though the big Belgian wasn't touched and that …
Analysis: Liverpool Goals scored with and without Benteke

Analysis: Liverpool Goals scored with and without Benteke

Christian Benteke has had a mixed debut season with Liverpool. From the match winning goals to the many missed chances, he's really showed why every single Liverpool fan was 'right' about the Reds signing him this summer. On one side are those that wanted him for his 'goals', and yes he does score goals and win you games. On the flip side to that though are the ones who thought goals aside he offers very little else and doesn't really …
Wake Me Up When The Season Ends

Wake Me Up When The Season Ends

What a season this has been and I don’t mean for good reasons. The highlight this season has undoubtedly been Jurgen Klopp’s arrival at Anfield, but other than that it has been a season to forget for the Reds. Every time we as fans seem to get a little bit excited, we come crashing down to earth. It’s been the story of the season. A season I, for one, can’t wait to be over. Form If you look in the …
Liverpool Don't Need A Big Change; Liverpool Need a Refresh

Liverpool Don't Need A Big Change; Liverpool Need a Refresh

It's been the debate that has raged on since for some time under FSG ownership, is this Liverpool squad good enough to compete with the best the world has to offer? Quite frankly not according to the likes of Souness, who has labelled Klopp's current crop as average with fans agreeing that there needs to be a clear out in the summer. But Klopp sees things in a different way, stating that quick fixes will not solve much and that he …
Why Replays Aren't So Bad This Year For Liverpool

Why Replays Aren't So Bad This Year For Liverpool

The most recent result is in – after a fair performance by a young Liverpool squad against a full West Ham side, the FA Cup Fourth Round came to a nil-nil close.  West Ham confirmed the replay date shortly after the match: 9 February. Replay.  It’s a word Liverpool fans have grown to loathe in seasons past.  There is, of course, plenty of evidence why a replay is not ideal.  Dan Kennett recently stated on the Under Pressure podcast for …
