Milner The Man As Liverpool's Midfield Thrives

Milner The Man As Liverpool's Midfield Thrives

When Liverpool bought Fabinho this summer, to accompany the already arriving Naby Keita, there was an expectation that the two would be an absolutely tour de force in Liverpool’s midfield. And whilst there is ample evidence to suggest that that will be the case when the two work their way into starting regularly for Liverpool, it’s been a different pairing that have staked their claim so far this season – James Milner and Gini Wijnaldum. It’s fitting that I’m writing …
Panic at the San Paolo - Napoli 1-0 Liverpool

Panic at the San Paolo - Napoli 1-0 Liverpool

Panic! Our once vaunted attack leaves Italy with a whimper. The Ribena has run out for James Milner. Naby Keita left the pitch on a stretcher. Trent and Robbo looked gassed from the beginning. And City awaits... First Half All About Naby Each of the other Champions League ties were full of tricks, flips and goals galore. In Naples, the mood was much different. It’s not clear what crop was harvested from the San Paolo pitch prior to kickoff, but …
Player Ratings as Reds are neutralised in Naples

Player Ratings as Reds are neutralised in Naples

Dreadful, absolutely dreadful. Liverpool's worst performance of the season so far rightfully punished with a late Napoli winner. The Reds were never at the races, with David Ospina not having to make a single save in the home goal. Onto Sunday, where it has to be better. Here are your ratings. Three players come away with credit Alisson Becker (7): Made a couple of really good saves, probably would have been more than 1-0 if not for him. Held a …
The Year of the Studge?

The Year of the Studge?

When Daniel Sturridge entered the fray on Saturday night, there was a sense of something resembling relief. Even before he scored, the truth was that you felt Liverpool had a better chance of something happening with him on the pitch. That’s always been the impression with Sturridge. Whatever you think of the player, it’s hard to argue that you’re ever unhappy to see him in the team, or coming off the bench. As a Liverpool fan, you’re only ever frustrated …

Chelsea 1 Liverpool 1: A Tactical Breakdown

Chelsea 1 Liverpool 1: A Tactical Breakdown

First of all, an apology from myself. I'm awfully sorry I haven't been able to discuss perhaps two of the most exciting games of the season - LFC vs. Spurs and LFC vs. PSG, as unfortunately, I have been without WiFi for the past two weeks. To make up for that, this is a short but special Tactical Breakdown edition, looking at both the Chelsea League Cup and Premier League games. The League Cup fixture between Liverpool and Chelsea was …

Alisson Becker - Passing His First Big Test

Alisson Becker - Passing His First Big Test

Daniel Sturridge has rightfully gotten most of the attention after the nail-biting finale of the clash against Chelsea at Stamford Bridge - what a strike that was. One the best compliments for that shot would be that even Alisson couldn't have saved it. Liverpool's new Brazilian keeper didn't have a whole lot to do in terms of saves this season up until Saturday evening - most of the accurate shots towards Alisson's goal were of bad quality, after all shot …

Mo Salah Doesn't Care About Being the Best Player in the World, and Neither Should You

London, England - After the events on Monday night at the FIFA best awards, Luka Modric has been named the best men’s player of the year. Pipping award ceremony regular Cristiano Ronaldo, who was ironically missing from this particular iteration of the event, and Mohamed Salah to the gong after a champions league winning season and captaining his home nation Croatia to the world cup final. A truly deserving winner. Who cares? Certainly not Mo Salah (well at least not …
