How Liverpool Shaped Up In Possession Against Bournemouth

How Liverpool Shaped Up In Possession Against Bournemouth

Against Stoke, we concentrated on how Liverpool played in possession. Here again, for different reasons, we will do the same, focusing less on the execution of Liverpool's attacking game plan and more on the implementation of their shape when on the offensive. Line up Rodgers opted for the same team that had started against Stoke. At this early stage of the season, where performances are often not at their most fluent and coherent, it's generally important to keep some type of …
 Why Alberto Moreno Still Has a Future at Liverpool FC

Why Alberto Moreno Still Has a Future at Liverpool FC

Liverpool started their Premier League campaign with a solid but unspectacular display at Stoke. Three points in the bag, on we go. Bournemouth are up next. Despite a very lukewarm performance in general, Rodgers will be happy with the clean sheet that the defence just about managed to keep. One person who shone in particular was the young Joe Gomez, who despite a couple of errors also had a solid debut at one of the most difficult grounds to visit …

Post Match Stoke 0 Liverpool 1 - What did we learn?

A Philippe Coutinho stunner gives Liverpool the win. No, this is not February 2015, but it felt like deja-vu in the win against Stoke in Reds season opener. Many fans had hoped to see a fluid Liverpool side, hungry for revenge against the side that embarrassed them on the last day of the season but that was not a realistic expectation. Stoke is always a difficult away day and the opening game of the season is always a little conservative …

Stoke City 0 Liverpool 1 | Player Ratings

Liverpool took on Stoke City in their opening game of the 2015/16 season, 77 days after the 6-1 drubbing in the same fixture in the previous season. A game of very few chances and notable moments, until a piece of magic from Coutinho, something the Liverpool fans will soon start to take for granted.

Do Liverpool Have Squad Depth in Defence?

Do Liverpool Have Squad Depth in Defence?

Much has been made this summer about Liverpool buying in bulk again. Many fans believe we now have the numbers to compete in the many competitions we'll be involved in this coming season. The question is not 'if' Liverpool have the numbers but whether they've got the requisite quality? After all, numbers don't always indicate quality, do they? With that in mind myself and two others, Tom Dowan and John O'Sullivan, have decided to take a look at the squad …

Goals, Goals, Goals!

So the new season is nearly upon us. Just over two weeks to go until LFC can begin to pick up the pieces of a shambolic end to last season and try to instil confidence in themselves and the loyal fan base. New signings and coaches are settling in and the fans are trying to figure out what style we will play next season. What the pre season tour has shown is that the popularity of the club on the …

The Centre Back Conundrum - Rodgers Must Settle for Consistency

The Centre Back Conundrum - Rodgers Must Settle for Consistency

Even after spending over £110m on player recruitment last summer it looked as though Brendan Rodgers was never sure of what his best XI was. More often than not he seemed desperate to justify the validity of those acquisitions that was displayed by his decision to stick with Dejan Lovren even though it was apparent the Croat was severely lacking in confidence due to the pressure of his transfer fee -- through no fault of his own. Other players were …
