ACL Injuries, Physical Recuperation and Mental Rebuilding

ACL Injuries, Physical Recuperation and Mental Rebuilding

There's been a feel good factor around Liverpool for the past 10 days. The appointment of Jurgen Klopp have given new fans a new sense of belief and hope. However,  like everything in life all good things must come to an end and Liverpool fans have been brought back down to earth with a bump this week with the news that both Joe Gomez and Danny Ings are ruled out for the rest of the season with Anterior Cruciate Ligament …
Divock Origi: To Be Saved By The Boss?

Divock Origi: To Be Saved By The Boss?

The arrival of Jurgen Klopp at Liverpool has kick-started a sense of euphoria surrounding the club and it's hard not to understand why. The German boss seems to have all the answers to Liverpool’s on-field problems and there's a sense of hope returning to the forgotten fortress of Anfield. Under Brendan Rodgers, there was often some lost players in the squad; players who were always over-looked, utilised ineffectively or simply disliked by Rodgers. Divock Origi, the young forward, was signed …
Five observations from Man Utd vs Liverpool

Five observations from Man Utd vs Liverpool

Writing an article like this is never easy after a horrific viewing of an abysmal display against one of your biggest rival’s both for league positions and pride. To make matters even worse, I was surrounded by a family of Manchester United supports who jumped on my back (not literally) when it came to every decision and goal which went their way. So, without further ado, let’s see what us as fans gathered from the meeting between United and Liverpool …
Manchester United v Liverpool Preview | Predicted LFC Line-Up

Manchester United v Liverpool Preview | Predicted LFC Line-Up

It should be a bloody holiday.   Even if it's not ascended to the reverie of a day we can take off work, there surely will be bloodshed this weekend.  In one of the greatest rivalries in the history of football, we find mediocrity at the moment. Manchester United have yet to win convincingly in England, and Liverpool's bubble might have been crushed against West Ham two weeks ago.  Neither side will be down for this match, however.  It's better than …
Skrtel and Lovren Costing Liverpool More Than Just Goals

Skrtel and Lovren Costing Liverpool More Than Just Goals

In some clubs central defensive pairings form the basis of championship winning seasons. But the Skrtel and Lovren hardly gives a platform for even a top four challenge. The three clean sheets of the season while welcome, should not deceive anyone. They have serious defects with their individual games and their pairing. Clean sheets are not conclusive proof of solidity of a team’s defence. What is the point is racking up three clean sheets and conceding three in the next …
The Fans' Verdict on Liverpool's Summer Transfer Business

The Fans' Verdict on Liverpool's Summer Transfer Business

Liverpool fans rarely agree with something as a collective. Nobody is alike so it's obvious opinions will differ. I could write an article summarising how I thought the transfer window went for Liverpool but plenty of others are doing that so I decided to ask different people what they thought of our business. There will be no 'agendas', just honest answers from a variety of fans. I spoke with Kev Kelly (@KevKelly92) a writer for FanFeud, Jay Riley (@Jay_78_) co-host of …
Liverpool's Subs vs. West Ham - A Tactical Assessment

Liverpool's Subs vs. West Ham - A Tactical Assessment

Your team is down by two goals (in embarrassing fashion, no less). The system and tactics, if any, are hardly clicking. The personnel have not fully, truly settled into the game. The home support roar as they demand more from their beloved club, yet over in the opposition’s end, they rightfully cheer. In football, when things don’t click, a shift has to happen – a shift in personnel, a shift in tactics, a shift in playing-style – any shift. When …
Ranking Liverpool's Summer Transfer Business

Ranking Liverpool's Summer Transfer Business

Well, the international break is sadly upon us and Liverpool, alongside the rest of the Premier League, are four games deep into their long season. Four games sounds like a reasonable time to take stock so the international break will probably be welcomed by many managers who are completing last minute checks on their squads. Of course, Liverpool have known their squad for the 2015/2016 season for some time with business wrapped up over a month before the season began. …
It Is Not All Bad For Liverpool Football Club

It Is Not All Bad For Liverpool Football Club

Saturday morning, the buzz around Liverpool Football Club was huge; if we were to win vs West Ham United we would be on 10 points from 12 without a single league defeat. The game was seen as a huge opportunity to go into the international break on a massive high. Unfortunately, a poor performance was all that was in store and suddenly Liverpool appeared to be back in a crisis with ‘Rodgers Out’ trending on Twitter. This is not a …
Clyne and Gomez - Positions Boxed Off?

Clyne and Gomez - Positions Boxed Off?

It may only be three matches into their Liverpool careers but things couldn't have started much better for Anfield new boys Nathaniel Clyne and Joe Gomez. Three matches. Three clean sheets. Zero defensive errors leading to a shot by the opposition. This is quite a contrast to the team that ended last season conceding six goals to Stoke with the defence looking all at sea. So what can we put this new found defensive solidity down to? The new found confidence …
