Liverpool Players Who Could Break Into The Euro 2024 England Squad

Liverpool Players Who Could Break Into The Euro 2024 England Squad

With England having successfully dispatched Iran 6-2 in their opening game, it gave the nation a spirited start to an otherwise strange World Cup tournament. The winter break seems bizarre, the one love arm band debate is on going, but in between we saw the three lions turn out a pretty ruthless and efficient display. With a few grumblings over the initial squad selection by Garth Southgate, that subject can now be shelved, and allow for the group stage matches …
Carvalho: Too Early to Call it, but Limited Chances to Shine

Carvalho: Too Early to Call it, but Limited Chances to Shine

It can be tough as a youngster in Liverpool’s first team squad. For all the talk about the crowd being forgiving and encouraging youth, the first half of the campaign has meant that the pressures of reality have seen that forgotten on occasions. Time and patience tend to give way to instant judgement and Fabio Carvalho has been a recipient on occasions. The next six months will be key in the 20 year old’s development at Anfield. Whilst no sweeping …
Liverpool vs Napoli: Full XI or Kids?

Liverpool vs Napoli: Full XI or Kids?

Liverpool's 3-0 win over Ajax on Wednesday night clinched their spot in the knockout round of the UCL. This puts Liverpool in a familiar position: one game left to play, with nothing on the line. In the extremely rare event that Liverpool beat Napoli by 4, Liverpool would finish first in Group A. However, in any other result, the final table standings remain unchanged, with Napoli on top of the group, and the Reds in second. This brings up one …
Fábio Carvalho - The Kid Isn't Ready Yet

Fábio Carvalho - The Kid Isn't Ready Yet

The long process in finally signing young Fábio Carvalho came to a close in the summer, with the Fulham target finally making the move to Merseyside. When he arrived, he was to be the understudy in a couple of positions, with senior and established operators ahead of him. When he did finally arrive, Liverpool were still the Reds of old, but right now they are something else entirely. So far this season the Reds have been on a roller coaster …
Why Europe Can Offer A Much Needed Distraction

Why Europe Can Offer A Much Needed Distraction

Six games in, and the Liverpool progress has been at best irregular. With a summer transfer window posing as many questions as answers, it has become a worried fanbase very quickly. When we lost to Man United, that was a low that was quickly reacted to. In the past week we have seen a disjointed display against Newcastle and then Everton, garnering four points. The only positive right now is that Manchester City dropped points, but it doesn’t mask how …
Key Stats as Liverpool get first win of the season

Key Stats as Liverpool get first win of the season

What a lovely palate cleanser. After the horror of the first 3 games of the season, the Reds were able to let out a big exhale of tension with a record-matching victory of nine goals over Bournemouth. But what were the Key Stats as Klopp's men put the Cherries to the sword? Goals Goals Goals Liverpool got this record margin of victory from a similarly impressive xG difference of 3.23 to 0.29. Trebling that with finishing is needed too, of …
Liverpool FC 9 - 0 Bournemouth - The Player Ratings

Liverpool FC 9 - 0 Bournemouth - The Player Ratings

The Starters: Alisson Becker – 7 Well positioned to clear or gather any slightly overhit long ball, which came in useful once or twice. Didn't have much to do, but did it well. Trent Alexander-Arnold – 8 What a strike! Trent looks like he's got something back after an underwhelming start to the season, but today he looked ready to win, and comfortably. Not every pass comes off as envisioned, but he gets enough of the hard ones right, putting …
Liverpool v Bournemouth - A Changing Of The Guard

Liverpool v Bournemouth - A Changing Of The Guard

Jordan Henderson and James Milner need to be dropped, with clear limitations brought into their roles on the pitch. Neither can compete at the Premier League level anymore, and thus youth should be preferred whenever possible. It is not a targeted attack or misdirected opinion to state fact, and continuing poor performances do not lie. If circumstances dictate one of Milly or Hendo must start, then the other should only ever come into the game to replace the other. To …
Do Liverpool need an attacker?

Do Liverpool need an attacker?

All of the focus has been on whether or not Liverpool need midfield reinforcements over recent weeks. The attack has been somewhat neglected.  It is one of those areas for the Reds that, on paper, looks well stocked. In reality, though, it is a little light. At surface level, Jurgen Klopp has five senior attackers at his disposal in Mohamed Salah, Diogo Jota, Luis Diaz, Roberto Firmino and Darwn Nunez. He also possesses Fabio Carvalho and Harvey Elliott could play …
Manchester United v Liverpool - Klopp Needs To Up His Own Game

Manchester United v Liverpool - Klopp Needs To Up His Own Game

If you had the chance to listen to the latest edition of ‘Rate, Don’t Hate’ podcast on the Anfield Index, you’ll know that I’m all for some form of shake-up within this current Liverpool team. As it stands, the injury crisis is alarming, and will make certain decisions a necessity when the times comes to picking the eleven for next Monday evening. What we do know is that Darwin will be joining that injury list for the next few weeks, …
