Five Observations from Arsenal vs Liverpool

Five Observations from Arsenal vs Liverpool

A repeat of last season's result at the Emirates was never on the cards. Personally, I could not see Liverpool exposing themselves in match three of the season and Arsenal were still in first gear so momentum was not on their side. It was a little eerie for me. Anybody who follows me on Twitter will know I'm not overly convinced with Brendan Rodgers' defensive abilities but, going into the game, I really couldn't see us conceding and despite Arsenal's …

Arsenal v Liverpool Preview | Predicted Line-ups & Facts

Six points in six, Liverpool stand near the top of the table two fixtures into the new season. Admittedly, the level of competition has ranged from mid-table to newly-promoted for the Reds. The narrative of the campaign so far, however, is top teams struggling against weaker opposition. Arsenal can, of course, count themselves among that group, having a mediocre 1-0-1 start to 2015. Skating past Palace after a 2-0 defeat to the Hammers is much less than a stellar start. …
Is Brendan Rodgers Evolving The Back Three Idea?

Is Brendan Rodgers Evolving The Back Three Idea?

Not many positives can be taken from last season if we're being honest. An unbeaten streak sandwiched between two below average runs is how you could describe our Premier League season. Two semi-final appearances in the domestic cups could be seen as a positive but the performance put in against Villa was underwhelming to say the least. Our European adventure came to a premature end and Rodgers' Tricky Reds look like they'd flatlined. One positive I took from the season …
Four New Things At Liverpool's Anfield Opener

Four New Things At Liverpool's Anfield Opener

New Stand Anfield’s new main stand looms behind the current one, as fans exchange stories about how it will be moved into place, where it came from and what it will be called. Like the mythical beast in that episode of Father Ted, much of the evening’s talk concerned the new structure, and the fact that the owner and chairman were present at the stadium only increased the speculation. “You can’t move it if the wind is over 60mph.” “It’s made …
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?

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. Liverpool FC Player Ratings Mignolet -  Did what he had to do. A day any keeper would love. Had one good save to turn the ball away, …
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 …
