How To Replicate The Genius Thiago Brings

How To Replicate The Genius Thiago Brings

Steven Gerrard & Luis Suárez are Liverpool’s most notable legends of the recent past, and were players that were often relied upon to propel their respective team to greatness. Though Luis actually played with Stevie for the entirety of the Uruguayan's Anfield stay, Gerrard was at that point far from the powerhouse he once was. Luis became the talisman of his era, and nearly gifted Stevie the ultimate prize of Premier League glory. Gus Poyet once remarked how Liverpool would …
The Good, The Bad and The Ugly from Liverpool vs Crystal Palace

The Good, The Bad and The Ugly from Liverpool vs Crystal Palace

Two games, two draws, four points dropped. Liverpool's start to the 22/23 Premier League season has been less than ideal on and off the pitch. Performances have been well below what is required, the squad is short of quality in midfield and the injuries are mounting up. Liverpool have failed to win their first two Premier League games, with disappointing draws against newly-promoted Fulham and Crystal Palace. Hyperbole abounds, with some people already writing off the title this season and …
Fulham 2 - 2 Liverpool: The Post Mortem

Fulham 2 - 2 Liverpool: The Post Mortem

Jurgen Klopp is world class in every sense. His personality, his coaching style, his ability to evolve, his adoration of the wonderful support, and his affection towards his players. It is this last part which can often cause the odd mishap in his spectacular Liverpool reign. His loyalty to certain players is applauded by many, and there is obviously great pride in how he treats his players. Players that have felt the warm embrace of the big German would run …
The Back Up Boys

The Back Up Boys

With only a handful of games left in the Premier League, Champions League and FA Cup this season, Liverpool now (more than ever) need to utilise the full depth of their squad. After watching Manchester City glide into red territory time and time again this past Sunday, the end result has to be seen as a positive. To head to the Etihad and hold out for vital point, needs to be taken as a good result, all things considered. Forget …
RAW: Hapless Henderson & Sloppy Set Pieces

RAW: Hapless Henderson & Sloppy Set Pieces

It was billed as the title decider between the best two football teams on the planet. A chance to expand the lead over Liverpool for Man City, or an opportunity for the Reds to go clear at the top of the table. On Post-Match RAW, Trevor Downey was joined by Jim Boardman and Dave Hendrick to look back at the 2-2 draw with the Citizens at the Ethiad. First up is Dave, who wasn't pleased with elements of the side …
Naby: The Big Game Player

Naby: The Big Game Player

Naby Keita has been one of Liverpool's best players this season, and perhaps the Reds' most underrated performer. His impact is so understated, I even marked him a little low in the match ratings on Tuesday, as the Reds bested Benfica 1-3. It’s only on a rewatch (and after viewing his match stats), that I saw how endlessly effective he was, and the 7.5 I marked probably deserved a solid 8.5. The perfect Klopp facilitator, appears to be the little …
What is Jordan Henderson's best position for Liverpool?

What is Jordan Henderson's best position for Liverpool?

It feels as though we have this conversation every other year. Jordan Henderson will play a different role and there will be a big debate with regards to whether the new position is actually the best one for him moving forward.  There will then be a fair bit of revisionism as people highlight their opinions from a few years back as if to say told you so.  We’re seeing it now. He came off of the bench against Inter to …
Post-Match RAW: Superb Set Pieces & Sean Dyche's Face

Post-Match RAW: Superb Set Pieces & Sean Dyche's Face

During an incredibly busy period for the Reds, following the victory at home to Leicester, they had to travel to Turf Moor and play Sean Dyche's bottom-of-table Burnley. Fabinho's fifth goal in recent weeks came just before half-time from a Trent Alexander-Arnold corner, followed by Sadio Mane's flick on, and it was enough to secure maximum points. On Post-Match RAW, Trev, Dave and Hari reacted after the final whistle. It was always going to be a tough challenge, and when …
The Henderson Dilemma

The Henderson Dilemma

There was much annoyance in not replacing of Gini Wijnaldum this past summer. Yet as the season enters its final few months, the main worry is that of Liverpool captain, Jordan Henderson. In a season where emerging midfield talents have come to the fore, there seems to be a dilemma heading towards Jordan Henderson‘s Liverpool career. At 36 years old, James Milner is quite understandably dropping down the Anfield pecking order. At 31 years old, Jordan Henderson is now past …
Key Stats as Liverpool’s set-piece kings break down stubborn Burnley

Key Stats as Liverpool’s set-piece kings break down stubborn Burnley

The Reds had to battle hard to edge past a typically combative Burnley as a well-worked goal from Fabinho saw them win 1-0 at Turf Moor. But what were the key stats as Liverpool maintained the pressure on Manchester City at the top of the table? Set Piece Specialists With the Clarets looking to sit back and frustrate Liverpool, the Reds had to rely on their set-piece routines to carry the bulk of their attack. 1.81 of the Reds 2.04 …
