Super Sadio Steals The Show (Again) Sadio Mané found himself the man of the moment for Liverpool …
Should Liverpool Have Signed a Defender in January?

Should Liverpool Have Signed a Defender in January?

Well, yes. As it stands right now, Joe Gomez’s injury cloud has only darkened – perhaps turning into a dreaded storm cloud should his spell on the sidelines span further than Liverpool’s tie against Bayern Munich in February – and Liverpool are still without an actual right-back. All while still remaining firmly on top of the Premier League table. If Liverpool wish to stay there, they may need a functioning defence. As it stands, they’re standing on a giant’s shoulders, …
Liverpool 1-1 Leicester City: A Tactical Breakdown

Liverpool 1-1 Leicester City: A Tactical Breakdown

With a number of injuries and a suspension to deal with, even after the team sheets were announced, it was unclear exactly how Liverpool would set up. Initial reports indicated Gini Wijnaldum would fill in at right-back, in Alexander-Arnold's absence, but instead, it was club captain, Jordan Henderson who would feature there, and Naby Keïta who would function as one of the pivots in the 4-2-3-1 system. Liverpool's setup Henderson and Robertson played as the Liverpool full-backs, and functioned tactically as the …
Adam Lallana, What is the Point?

Adam Lallana, What is the Point?

Seriously though, what is the point? You've read the title, you may or may not agree with the sentiment it offers but either way you're now expecting to read a piece of writing justifying whether or not there is actually any point in Liverpool's continual employment of their number 20. Yet here I sit, staring deeply at my laptop, wondering how to describe or even justify a sigh? An expression of 'meh', the reaction completely devoid of emotion that engulfs …

Red Rant - Klopp's Gomez Error To Cost Liverpool?

Through these frigid few days, even pessimistic Liverpool supporters were reluctantly cosying up to the idea that The Reds, 5 points ahead with 14 matches to go, are the presumptive favourites to win their first title in the Premier League era. Turns out. We can’t have nice things. After beginning the season with what looked on paper to be something called squad depth. A term that Liverpool has been unfamiliar with for a generation. Previous key starters like Clyne, Moreno, …
Liverpool's Race For The Title: The Pressure May Help

Liverpool's Race For The Title: The Pressure May Help

During the (admittedly very few) title races we’ve been involved in recently there’s been a lot of ‘they might drop points here!’ and ‘maybe we can make up the ground there!’ when looking towards our closest rivals. As if we’re sort of expecting it to happen and we’re counting on others to mess up, less than ourselves to be strong and steady and powerful. The charge in 08/09 was always looking to Manchester United to drop points, and 13/14 always …

Liverpool vs West Ham Preview  - Potential Key Battles

Liverpool vs West Ham Preview - Potential Key Battles

Liverpool go into their game with West Ham on Monday night off the back of their first dropped points against a team outside the top six this season. Despite that, however, the Reds have managed to stretch their advantage at the top of the Premier League to 5 points, as Man City face Arsenal at the weekend, and then Everton in midweek. Liverpool need to make sure that they get back to winning ways against West Ham, one way or …
Key Points in Liverpool's Title Challenge

Key Points in Liverpool's Title Challenge

It wasn't the result we were all hoping for against Leicester at Anfield. In the wake of an unexpected slip-up from City, the snowy, sub-zero Merseyside night presented a perfect opportunity for Liverpool to further freeze out their nearest title rivals by moving seven points clear at the top. It wasn't to be, and a 1-1 draw ensured Klopp's side edged to five points clear of Guardiola's reigning champions. It was a point gained rather than two lost upon reflection, …
Shaqiri Failing Test as Regular Starter for Liverpool

Shaqiri Failing Test as Regular Starter for Liverpool

Liverpool were always going to drop points against a non-top-six side eventually, simply by the law of averages. To have almost reached February before succumbing to one of the Premier League's so-called 'lesser' outfits really is an achievement to be proud of. Think about how long ago August was and what you were doing back then. Think about how hot it was and how hideously cold it is now - it feels like a lifetime ago. So let's not be …
