How Klopp Has Made a Weapon of Versatility

How Klopp Has Made a Weapon of Versatility

“He is a brilliant player and I am happy that he can play…he has a defending brain and can do it in different positions, it’s good.”
Klopp said of Fabinho following his impressive performance at centre back against Brighton. It was a performance emblematic of Klopp’s plans coming to fruition. Indeed, if the Reds’ title challenge shows anything, it’s that long-term planning, with the right investment and right appointments, works. Philosophies, they work too. A sense of the …
Ageism Is Working Against James Milner

Ageism Is Working Against James Milner

When a footballer hits 30, or at least in and around that age, something instantly changes in the way they are perceived by supporters. Every bad performance is suddenly due to their advancing years, every misplaced pass is because they’re not as young as they once were and they are used as target practice every time their side suffers defeat. Steven Gerrard even suffered from it, which says it all. This is something we are suddenly seeing come to the …

Liverpool's Midfield - Still Not Consistent Enough

Liverpool's Midfield - Still Not Consistent Enough

Liverpool's unbeaten start in the league came to an end last week, which prompted old insecurities in the supporters. A lot of finger-pointing and scapegoating has taken place since. When the starting line-ups were announced there were only two ways it was going to go - the Reds don't lose, and nobody cares, or City beat us, and we all blame the midfield and Dejan Lovren. The Croatian is a topic for another day. I decided to look into how …

Is it time to reconsider Jordan Henderson in a midfield two?

Is it time to reconsider Jordan Henderson in a midfield two?

The selection of Jordan Henderson in a midfield pivot has long been met with derision by Liverpool fans, but is it time to reconsider the skipper's capabilities in the position? Henderson was often the main midfield driver during his earlier years at the club, moving in from right midfield to partner Steven Gerrard in the title run of 2013/14, often described as 'doing the running for two' whilst Gerrard sat back and pinged balls around the pitch in his twilight …

Liverpool 4-0 Newcastle United - Who was Man of the Match?

Liverpool 4-0 Newcastle United - Who was Man of the Match?

This Liverpool side is on to something special, isn't it? The Reds warmed up for a huge week ahead, with a routine 4-0 dispatching of Newcastle United at Anfield, and there were some strong individual performances throughout the pitch for the Reds. Trent Alexander-Arnold and Andy Robertson were fantastic throughout the game, with their energy on the flanks, supplementing all of Liverpool's attempts to bombard the Newcastle goal. Virgil van Dijk, who was the MOTM last time when the Reds …
The Premier League title is Liverpool's to win

The Premier League title is Liverpool's to win

How good does the league table look? Liverpool are perched at the top of the tree, after a fantastic start to the season. Few will begrudge them their place ahead of a terrific Man City team who are showing small signs of last season's exertions catching up. A record breaking 100 points and the need for excruciating, constant attention to detail. Is it sustainable for another gruelling Premier League campaign? 90-95 points is probably where Liverpool need to be to …
Fabinho and Henderson - an ideal midfield duo?

Fabinho and Henderson - an ideal midfield duo?

Fabinho's arrival on Merseyside was supposed to spell the end of Jordan Henderson as a Liverpool starter, despite the fact, the Liverpool No.14 retained the captaincy. However, the Brazilian's arrival might be what reignites the former Sunderland youngster's Liverpool career. The pair got the nod against Wolverhampton Wanderers, their first start as a two this season, and looked fairly dominant as the Reds extended their lead at the top of the table to four points. Up until that point, Jürgen Klopp …
