Rage Against The Machine

Rage Against The Machine

Revenge is a dish best served cold, supposedly. Well this Saturday evening represents an opportunity for this Liverpool side to take out their obvious frustrations on Real Madrid, who await them in this season’s Champions League Final. The last final meeting was devastating, and memories clearly still linger with key members of the Reds' squad. Throughout the entirety of last weekend's final league game, I did everything I could to avoid actually sitting and watching the match. With the eventual …
One Last Steven Gerrard Assist

One Last Steven Gerrard Assist

This coming Sunday marks potentially the most important day in Liverpool's season, certainly until the following weekend. The Reds' campaign has been littered with pivotal games, vital weeks, and must win scenarios. This is where the Anfield giants now sit within the hierarchy of all things football, and long may it continue. Nothing less than a Reds win at Anfield (against Wolves) will suffice this Sunday. To have any chance of clinching the title, three points must be achieved in …
Southampton 1 - 2 Liverpool - Man Of The Match

Southampton 1 - 2 Liverpool - Man Of The Match

Southampton 1 - 2 Liverpool - Man Of The Match Joel Matip Came into the team at the weekend when Virgil got injured, and started tonight as the defensive leader. The most underrated defender in the league, he is so controlled and alert nowadays. The goal was vital, and came at a critical moment. Liverpool needed a big moment, and the giant defender gave his manager what was needed …
Under Pressure: Dynamic Diaz, Klopp's Man Management & Naby's New Role

Under Pressure: Dynamic Diaz, Klopp's Man Management & Naby's New Role

It was another double header for the Under Pressure crew, and it was a review of the Reds' domestic cup double - already - this season as they won the FA Cup final on penalties against Chelsea at Wembley. In recent seasons it hasn't been a priority for Liverpool, mainly due to the strength of the squad available but this campaign has seen a real desire to succeed in all competitions. Phil Barter reflected on the ability of the manager …
History Is Being Written

History Is Being Written

The weekend's games brought up a variation of emotions for all Reds fans, with the jubilant FA Cup Final victory quickly replaced by pure viewership of the West Ham v City battle. Both games ended in a draw, and where Liverpool's score line eventually produced silverware, it could be that City’s draw will inevitably do the same. Points will still need to be dropped by City for Liverpool to stand a chance, and a stand-alone win against Southampton will keep …

Observations: Groundhog Day

I've seen this one before. Liverpool vs Chelsea in a domestic cup final. Both teams create lots of chances, though the Reds are slightly the better side. None of these are scored, with two excellent goalkeeping displays. Thomas Tuchel makes a sub deep in extra time, gambling on a penalty specialist. But eventually, Liverpool triumphed, holding their nerve to seal it in the shootout. Really someone should be asking what the scriptwriters have been doing these last few months, because …
Molby on the Spot: Chelsea's Pre-Final Form & Guardiola's Liverbird Neon Signs

Molby on the Spot: Chelsea's Pre-Final Form & Guardiola's Liverbird Neon Signs

While Liverpool seemingly play crucial, pressure-filled matches every three days recently, with fans and more importantly players barely able to catch a breath, it was up to Jan Molby and Trev Downey to preview the second final of the season for Klopp's team. Before discussing Chelsea, they touched on the big signing for Man City, and how effective Erling Haaland will be for the Citizens. How good was the value of the transfer fee? How will he fit into Pep's …
Aston Villa 1 - 2 Liverpool - Man Of The Match

Aston Villa 1 - 2 Liverpool - Man Of The Match

Luis Diaz Low key good performance, in a tough contest. The minutes are mounting, and fatigue is starting to show. Diaz had really good moments, and was brilliant in his delivery for Mane’s goal. He was perhaps less incisive from the right, but he stretched the play and still looked to run defenders at every opportunity …

Observations: Heroes and Villans

Liverpool made it through a very chaotic game to manage a 2-1 victory against Aston Villa, but it was far from easy. This was incredibly stressful watching, and it started right from the off. Jurgen Klopp will be very irritated by the manner in which the game began, however, as the Reds conceded after just 3 minutes. In the build-up to the goal, Ollie Watkins was clearly offside, but the assistant didn't flag it and play continued. About a minute …
Take The Red Pill

Take The Red Pill

A point at home to a good Spurs side (who are managed by a world class manager), was seen as a major disappointment at the weekend. That is the mentality and level that this Liverpool team and manager have created, and one that should be respected for getting us to that point. The disappointment was real, but the door remains ajar on the reds hopes of achieving the improbable. In a period where Manchester City have been obscenely bankrolled by …
