Indeed, if the Reds’ title challenge shows anything, it’s that long-term planning, with the right investment and right appointments, works. Philosophies, they work too. A sense of the …

Conservative Reds Show Substance Over Style

Conservative Reds Show Substance Over Style

There was a moment in the first half of Liverpool’s 1-0 win over Brighton where Gini Wijnaldum picked the ball up 20/25 yards from goal, assessed his options, passed the ball sideways to Jordan Henderson, who promptly gave the ball back to Wijnaldum, only for Gini to turn around and pass the ball 40 yards backwards to Fabinho. My groan was audible. It was that sort of game. This article isn’t necessarily going to be a defence of that moment, …

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 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.
