How will Liverpool Line-up vs Stoke?

How will Liverpool Line-up vs Stoke?

With the season opener getting closer and many transfers completed already it's now when fans and journalists start looking at how the team may line up. Obviously injuries could play a part and new signings could happen but generally 99% of the players here now will be those in contention for a start against Stoke. With that in mind I decided to ask Phil McNulty, Chief Footballer writer for the BBC, Jack Lusby, a rival of mine for someone who …

Benteke vs. Firmino - Let's have a gander, shall we?

In lieu of pissing off yet more Scousers I have decided to tone down the abuse and cast a more critical eye. Fuck knows how it’s going to turn out. One confirmed impressively early and the other at the centre of yet another drawn out, big money move; Roberto Firmino and Christian Benteke represent two sides to Liverpool Football Club right now. Both the style of these players must be considered and what that information lends to a judgement of Liverpool’s …

Defining Period for Joao Teixeira's Liverpool Career

Defining Period for Joao Teixeira's Liverpool Career

Joao Carlos Teixeira essentially auditioned for a move to Anfield and got it. His standout performance against the Reds in the now defunct “NextGen” series in the 2011/12 season caught the Anfield hierarchy’s attention. In February 2012, the former Sporting Lisbon youth star who had been tagged the “New Deco” in Portugal was signed. Three years after his signing Liverpool is no close to experiencing the best of a player Steven Gerrard said he was the “best player on the …
High Press Could Mean No Defensive Midfielder?

High Press Could Mean No Defensive Midfielder?

Sam McGuire wrote this article before jetting off to Egypt and it links in nicely with the Sean O'Driscoll rumours. The season is still two months away from the opening game but people have already started asking others how they think the team will line up next season. One thing the majority have mentioned is how a lack of a proper defensive midfielder hinders their team selection. We've seen under Brendan Rodgers that the gaping hole in centre midfield is …

Roberto Firmino - The Bundesliga Perspective

Roberto Firmino - The Bundesliga Perspective

Outstanding technique, mature tactical understanding and quick feet, Roberto Firmino is everything Liverpool wanted. Off the back of his 22-goal, 12-assist season, the hefty fee of €41m might have been more justified. Despite Firmino's final season in blue being a more tepid affair, the excitement surrounding the Reds' new playmaker is justified.
