Pep Guardiola and his Liverpool Inferiority Complex

Pep Guardiola and his Liverpool Inferiority Complex

Liverpool are in Pep Guardiola's head more than ever before. It's quite something. No sooner had Man City been denied by VAR against Tottenham than their manager was banging on about the Reds again, referencing Adrian's foot not being on his line in the UEFA Super Cup penalty shootout win over Chelsea. He can't help himself and it reeks of a man who can't get Liverpool out of his mind, being kept awake at night by images of Andy Robertson …
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 …
Obsessed: Everyone Can't Stop Talking About Liverpool

Obsessed: Everyone Can't Stop Talking About Liverpool

"People don't like winners."
Pep Guardiola was remarkably defensive but also equally defiant at his press conference. He would go on to state that his club simply does not get the same respect afforded to Liverpool. It's probably true. Over the past few months, he has likely faced as many questions about Liverpool as Jürgen Klopp. Liverpool is the team that simply refuses to go away. Unshakeable, and impossible to throw off, Liverpool took Manchester City all the …
A must win game at Rafa's Newcastle for Liverpool

A must win game at Rafa's Newcastle for Liverpool

First of all let's be clear, Rafa is a legend. What he did for Liverpool FC and its fans; the level he took the team to, setting a benchmark for future managers to aspire to. Pound for pound he did an incredible job at the club and seems to be continuing in the same vein at Newcastle. Once again he seems to be operating with one hand tied behind his back. I don't think he got anywhere near enough credit …
Trophies or not, it’s been a good season for Liverpool

Trophies or not, it’s been a good season for Liverpool

The title race is going to the wire and Liverpool are right in the thick of it. The Champions League semi-finals are so finely poised and Liverpool are in the thick of it. Feels nice, doesn’t it? It’s been another rollercoaster ride of a season for Jürgen Klopp’s Red men which has seen them amass a record points tally with three games left to play. Had it not been for the undeniable brilliance of Pep Guardiola’s Manchester City, the title …
Guardiola believes his City team's drive has come to the fore in title race

Guardiola believes his City team's drive has come to the fore in title race

Pep Guardiola claims that his Manchester City team has displayed its ambition and appetite for another Premier League title with the way they have pulled Liverpool's lead back since the turn of the year. City won 2-0 at Goodison Park on Wednesday night and that victory put the title holders back on top of the league table, albeit with a game more played than Liverpool. Speaking after the game and as reported in the Liverpool Echo, the former Barcelona and …

The Reds hold a six-point advantage over second-placed Tottenham Hotspur heading into the game, with the reigning champions a further point behind in third. The home side will be without defenders Joe Gomez and Joel Matip for the game, but James Milner is back in contention after returning to training this week. City are sweating on the fitness of midfielder Kevin …

Why there’s every reason to believe Liverpool can win the league

Supporting this Liverpool team is a real joy at the moment. After an incredible December, the mighty Reds sit at the top of the table. A healthy 7 point lead over nearest rivals City.

Destiny awaits It seems harsh that after such a tremendous end to a memorable year another serious test awaits …

Can Momentum Be Liverpool’s Greatest Title Weapon?

Can Momentum Be Liverpool’s Greatest Title Weapon?

No team thrives more with momentum behind them than Liverpool. We are an emotional fanbase and when things are going well, the Reds can become an unstoppable force, as we have witnessed throughout history. Using modern examples - I know, football existed well before 1992 - nothing stands out more than 2004/05 in that respect. Nobody even gave Liverpool the slightest chance of glory in the Champions League that season, with countless teams ahead of them in the favourites' pecking …
