Oxlade-Chamberlain adds another dimension to Liverpool midfield

Oxlade-Chamberlain adds another dimension to Liverpool midfield

The 4-1 dismantling of Norwich City or the Super Cup triumph over Chelsea should be the highlight of the two weeks old 2019/20 campaign but the biggest positive so far arrived in the 2-1 victory against Southampton.  No, it wasn’t Sadio Mane continuing his destructive 2019 with a goal and an assist. It wasn’t Roberto Firmino opening his account for the campaign just days after coming off the bench to change the game against Frank Lampard’s side in Istanbul.  It …
Roberto Firmino could be even better this season

Roberto Firmino could be even better this season

Roberto Firmino has started the season like he means business. It isn’t something Liverpool fans are used to with the Brazilian usually looking off the pace when he returns to pre-season after a summer break.  It’s by no means comparable to a Sunday League player trotting round the pitch after a heavy Saturday night but it’s safe to say Firmino tends to enjoy his summer breaks. He picks up the pace after a few weeks but fans have got used …

Liverpool 4-1 Norwich City - Observations as Alisson Injury Taints Opening Day Reds Romp

Liverpool kicked off the new Premier League season with a comfortable 4-1 romp over Norwich City at Anfield. Jurgen Klopp's men were put under pressure by a spirited Norwich side, but were also helped by a more-than-leaky Canaries defence, who shipped four goals even before half-time. Grant Hanley diverted a Divock Origi cross into his own net, Mo Salah scored one and then put a corner on Virgil van Dijk's head, before Origi easily headed a Trent Alexander-Arnold cross into …
Positives For Reds Despite Community Shield Defeat

Positives For Reds Despite Community Shield Defeat

Liverpool lost the seasonal curtain-raiser, the Community Shield, 5-4 on penalties to Manchester City at Wembley on Sunday after the game ended 1-1 in normal time. A powerful Joel Matip header cancelled out Raheem Sterling's opener, in a game that -- despite some fans' indifference to the value of the Community Shield -- neither side, judging by the tempo and commitment exhibited by both teams, would have wanted to lose. Despite the "loss", there were many positives for Jurgen Klopp …
Lessons Learned From Liverpool FC's American Tour

Lessons Learned From Liverpool FC's American Tour

Liverpool completed their pre-season tour of The United States with a 2-2 draw against Sporting CP in Yankee Stadium, New York in the early hours of Thursday morning. The draw was the Reds' third game of their tour, and the first game they didn't taste defeat in after falling to Borussia Dortmund in Indiana and Sevilla in Boston's Fenway Park. As was the case in European Champions' previous off-season jaunts across The Atlantic, the tour can be considered a commercial …
Wilson, Woodburn & Kent: What next for Liverpool's young trio?

Wilson, Woodburn & Kent: What next for Liverpool's young trio?

Liverpool wouldn't feel like Liverpool if supporters weren't airing some sort of grievance relating to the club, even at this wonderful time. The current grievance of choice is the Reds' summer transfer activity, which has seen them sign just one player so far: young Dutch centre-back Sepp van den Berg. There is a frustrating element to Liverpool's business, without question, with fans desperate for Jurgen Klopp's men to kick on and make the most of being European champions. While the …
Why A Left Wing Stint Could Be The Making of Brewster

Why A Left Wing Stint Could Be The Making of Brewster

Rhian Brewster’s encouraging pre-season continued last Sunday as the forward scored for the second consecutive game in Liverpool’s 3-1 victory over Bradford City.  Following on from his brace against Tranmere Rovers, the 19-year-old has now registered three goals in his first two senior outings for Liverpool.  The level of opposition must be taken into consideration when appraising Brewster’s performances, with Tranmere -- recently promoted to England’s third tier -- and Bradford, a League Two club, clearly not providing the most …
Liverpool's wonderkid approach will lead to success

Liverpool's wonderkid approach will lead to success

It seems to the case every single year now but this summer transfer window had the potential to be the biggest in the clubs history. With Liverpool just needing to make subtle tweaks to a squad that amassed 97 points and a sixth European Cup, it was, on paper at least, a much easier task than in years gone by.  The Reds didn’t need a £60million-rated goalkeeper being courted by many of Europe’s elite. They didn’t need to part with …
Bruno Fernandes could be Liverpool’s very own Bernardo Silva

Bruno Fernandes could be Liverpool’s very own Bernardo Silva

Bernardo Silva has crafted a reputation for himself as the opposition player every fan seems to want in their team. It’s understandable as to why this is the case. The Portuguese magician is a defensive forward. Everything Roberto Firmino is praised for, the City man does too. He’s managed to combine work rate, flair and a robustness not usually associated with players of his style into what could be described as Pep Guardiola’s perfect player.  What he does for City …
