A Fabinho & Keita post-lockdown masterclass?

A Fabinho & Keita post-lockdown masterclass?

In 2018, if Liverpool fans had been asked who the Reds' most important midfielders would be by the time 2019/20 ended, Fabinho and Naby Keita would likely have come out on top. The pair arrived during the summer of that year, with both considered elite footballers who could take Jurgen Klopp's ever-improving side to that next level. Liverpool's other midfielders were perfectly effective in their own right, but the two new additions seemingly represented another calibre of player - the …
Why Wijnaldum warrants a new Liverpool contract

Why Wijnaldum warrants a new Liverpool contract

All talk surrounding Liverpool at the moment surrounds when the season will resume and when Klopps men will finally get their hands in that nineteenth league title. This is big issue number one, of course, but under the surface, there are a number of interesting sub-plots simmering away on the back burner that make for quite interesting thinking. One of those issues surround one of Klopp's first signing and one of his most trusted lieutenants, Gini Wijnaldum. Since his arrival …
Where would Steven Gerrard fit into this Liverpool team?

Where would Steven Gerrard fit into this Liverpool team?

While it's practically impossible to improve on the kind of perfection that this Liverpool team has embodied over the last two year... it's always fun to fantasise, isn't it? So with that being said, here's a Liverpool legend that might just fit into the greatest LFC side of our generation. Steven Gerrard. And before we get started, I don't think it's unfair to say that Captain Fantastic as he was so often referred to wouldn't fit into any of the …
How Would Xabi Alonso Fit Into This Liverpool Team

How Would Xabi Alonso Fit Into This Liverpool Team

While it’s practically impossible to improve on the kind of perfection that this Liverpool team has embodied over the last two years… It’s always fun to fantasise, isn’t it? So with that being said, here’s a Liverpool legend might just fit into the greatest LFC side of our generation. Currently the Reds possess a wide choice of midfield options with multiple players all capable of performing in specific roles – in terms of depth this is the strongest that the …
Best games of 2019/20: Liverpool 2 - 0 Manchester United

Best games of 2019/20: Liverpool 2 - 0 Manchester United

As sport across the world continues to quite rightly take a back-seat, it provides a perfect platform to revel in some of Liverpool's finest moments of the season to date. While it may only provide a small silver lining to what are undoubtedly dark days, there's not a lot better than thinking back to some memorable fixtures in this glittering season so far. Last time, I focused on Liverpool's 0 - 4 Boxing Day bullying of Leicester City, but this …
4231 The Antidote to Liverpool's Recent Woes

4231 The Antidote to Liverpool's Recent Woes

Liverpool's recent form -- if not totally reflected in results -- has taken a nosedive. Losing 3 of their last 5 games across three competitions, the Reds have looked slow of both body and mind, despite having a 10 day respite from games thanks to the Premier League's winter break. Victories over Norwich -- the game which preceded the break -- and West Ham United -- the first league game after their temporary hiatus -- came in spite of laboured …
Why can't we find a middle ground with Keita?

Why can't we find a middle ground with Keita?

Four wins away from Premier League glory, two points dropped all season and various records on the verge of being broken - Liverpool supporters couldn't possibly find anything to argue about, right? Oh, we can. There is something ingrained in football fans that means we can never be completely happy, always having to pick holes in something. At Liverpool, the current 'issue' is Naby Keita, who has taken on the mantle from Jordan Henderson as the most divisive midfielder at …
Keita Could Be Liverpool's Midfield's Attacking Impetus

Keita Could Be Liverpool's Midfield's Attacking Impetus

Let's face it, since his big money switch from Red Bull Leipzig in the summer of 2018 Naby Keita has failed to live up to the lofty expectations placed upon him in Liverpool red. That's not to suggest the Guinean has been a bad signing, when his time with the European Champions should be assessed through the prism of the series of niggling injuries that have prevented him putting together an extended run of form. With his slaloming dribbles, effortless …
Frustrating Liverpool Fall To Narrow Defeat In Madrid

Frustrating Liverpool Fall To Narrow Defeat In Madrid

Liverpool have it all to do in the second leg of their Champions League last 16 tie against Atletico Madrid after falling to a 1-0 defeat at the Wanda Metropolitana stadium.  An early Saul Niguez goal gave the hosts a victory borne out of defensive solidity and gamesmanship with the Reds unable to prize open their stubborn defence and, despite all their possession, work Jan Oblak. Much of the pre-game narrative centred around Liverpool’s strength from set pieces and Atletico’s …
Atletico Madrid 1-0 Liverpool - Player Ratings as Reds go down in Spain

Atletico Madrid 1-0 Liverpool - Player Ratings as Reds go down in Spain

Atletico Madrid. Peak Atletico Madrid. Early goal, defend for their lives, win cheap fouls, and the antics of Diego Simeone on the touchline. This is what we expected when the draw was made, that is what we got. Liverpool went down 1-0, after Saul Niguez's fourth-minute goal was followed by a scrappy game, that ended with the Reds having no shots on target. The return leg at Anfield on March 12, will now be spicy, with the Reds having it …
