Premier League 2018/19 Season Preview

Premier League 2018/19 Season Preview

After an enormously entertaining World Cup full of drama and decadence, we the football faithful have been cast into the darkness of a month without the beautiful game. This has not stopped the majority of the big Premier League clubs from making money moves in anticipation. Ahead, we preview what to expect from them this season. Arsenal Arsenal’s relatively early business in securing the tenacious Lucas Torreira (aptly auto-corrected to terrier), supplemented with the earlier additions of Borussia Dortmund’s spine, …
Liverpool Need to Take Advantage of World Cup Hangovers

Liverpool Need to Take Advantage of World Cup Hangovers

The Premier League season starts in just a few days. And the spectre of the World Cup still hangs over the Premier League’s top six. This was a World Cup in which the Premier League’s top teams all had plenty of players not just participating but going the distance – and certain teams will benefit from that. Liverpool need to be one of the beneficiaries. It’s expected that Roberto Firmino and his Brazilian teammate Alisson Becker will start against West …
Roberto Firmino’s Goals Are Making Him The Complete Liverpool Striker

Roberto Firmino’s Goals Are Making Him The Complete Liverpool Striker

Roberto Firmino is an unbelievable footballer. The Brazilian is one of the most intelligent players to have represented Liverpool in years, possessing a footballing brain many can only dream of. His thought process is always a split-second quicker than most of the mere mortals around him. He sees passes before they can be made, finds pockets of space before defenders have had time to notice and presses as effectively as any frontman in Europe. It wasn’t a lightning-fast start at …
Roberto Firmino: Underrated Brazilian The Heartbeat Of Klopp’s System

Roberto Firmino: Underrated Brazilian The Heartbeat Of Klopp’s System

Philippe Coutinho was probably regarded as the most talented of the ‘Fab Four’ prior to his departure, with Sadio Mane the speedster of the pack and Mo Salah the marksman who’s hit the ground running to provide a new lease of life to Klopp’s attacking force. Yet, there can be no argument that Roberto Firmino is Liverpool’s most important man. Sunday’s 4-3 thriller against Manchester City was a testament to that, with the Brazilian’s goal eerily similar to Robbie Fowler’s …
Is Mohamed Salah's start to the season being underplayed?

Is Mohamed Salah's start to the season being underplayed?

When Liverpool signed Mohamed Salah for £36.9m on 22nd June 2017 it wasn’t to the kind of fanfare one would expect for a club record signing. Sure, many Liverpool supporters were made up with the transfer, but it didn’t feel huge in its magnitude. It didn’t reverberate around the league. Certainly when you consider what was to follow. By the end of the transfer window, Mo Salah would prove to be only the 10th most expensive signing of the summer. …
Red Rant: Inebriated and Recalibrated

Red Rant: Inebriated and Recalibrated

Remember Freshman year of college?  OK, do you remember the people at least?  You probably knew that guy/girl who came in as Pre-Med and four years later, ended up barely squeaking through with a Communications degree.  Great guy, but keg races and frat house hijinks were more his thing than Friday nights in the Library. Liverpool is that guy.  They've come into the season cocky, planning to compete for trophies on four fronts by playing one of the more demanding …
The Game of Errors - Spurs 4-1 Liverpool

The Game of Errors - Spurs 4-1 Liverpool

I could scarcely believe my eyes, indeed, I was predisposed to turn off the television and hide. Yet even then, I couldn't bear to even cover my eyes, and instead watched in shock as Liverpool fell apart inside 20 minutes. Twenty minutes later though, and Liverpool were a few mere minutes away from somehow getting through to half-time a single goal down, despite Spurs' early dominance, then came the killer blow; the goal that ended the match before the second-half …
Observations as Liverpool are whacked at Wembley

Observations as Liverpool are whacked at Wembley

I'm going to level with you all, in my good honest way. Racing back from Goodison (at least we can laugh at Everton) to watch this one, with the rain lashing down on my phone screen until I got in for the last 30 minutes on a telly, my analysis of this drubbing may not be as detailed as on another occasion. However, when you lose 4-1 to a team that you're meant to be 'at least as good as', …
Fantasy Premier League Insight: GW7 - Strikers Paradise

Fantasy Premier League Insight: GW7 - Strikers Paradise

When was the last time we had 5 dominating strikers in #FPL  (Kane, Aguero, Lukaku, Lacazette, Morata) While the holy trinity of Kane, Aguero and Lukaku were absolute MUST haves going into GW6, were you really surprised when #FPL threw another curve ball with Morata and Lacazette stepping up with 17 and 13 points respectively? I honestly can't think of another season where we've had this many strikers performing well at the same time; it definitely has the feel of …
Return Of Under-Appreciated Lallana Key For Liverpool

Return Of Under-Appreciated Lallana Key For Liverpool

The brilliance of this Liverpool team is its attack, with Jurgen Klopp a naturally positive manager who thrives off his players performing with fluency and freedom. The Reds’ defending may have left plenty to be desired under the charismatic German, but his side have produced some truly great attacking performances in the two years since he took charge. One man who has often been a catalyst in these displays, and everything good about Liverpool’s relentless style, is Adam Lallana. The …
