LFC 2017/2018 Player Ratings - Part 2

LFC 2017/2018 Player Ratings - Part 2

After rating the defence, now it's time for midfield and attack. Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain - Average Post-match Rating 6.63, Writers' Season Rating 7.5 The Ox had a slow start to his Liverpool career, appearing mainly as a substitute in the begging of the season. He grew to be our best midfielder as the season progressed before being sidelined by an injury sustained against Roma. His banger against Man City will be on the highlight reel for years. The injury also casts …
Liverpool's Premier League Lineups - a Stats Analysis: Part 2

Liverpool's Premier League Lineups - a Stats Analysis: Part 2

In part 1 of the lineup analysis, I had a look at our goalkeepers and defense. Part 2 will focus on midfield and attack. The midfield Even after Karius' nightmare performance in Kiev, the midfield is still Liverpool's weakest line going into 2018/2019. Emre Can is likely leaving, James Milner will be 33, Jordan Henderson is injury prone and not consistent, the Ox is injured, Gini Wijnaldum has a tendency to disappear at times and Adam Lallana had the worst …
Liverpool's Premier League Lineups - A Stats Analysis: Part 1

Liverpool's Premier League Lineups - A Stats Analysis: Part 1

The Premier League season is over. Man City dominated the season like no club has done in recent (and not so recent) times. For Liverpool, the campaign was relatively successful with the team managing to qualify for the Champions League for the second straight time - something that hasn't happened since a certain Spaniard was at the helm of the club. The Reds conceded fewer than 40 goals for the first since 2010. And Mo Salah won every possible award …

Roma were put to the sword on Tuesday night at Anfield and if not for a lapse in concentration during the final ten minutes then we would be all but through to another Champions League final.

Everton Draw Exposes Liverpool's Lack of Attacking Depth

Everton Draw Exposes Liverpool's Lack of Attacking Depth

It doesn’t take a rocket scientist to point out that Dom Solanke and Danny Ings are not feasible replacements for Bobby Firmino and Mo Salah. And certainly, this observation has been met with choruses of sarcastic comments, both from within the Liverpool fandom and from wider football circles. But it’s nevertheless worth looking at, especially in comparison to Liverpool’s Champions League quarter-final opponents. Whilst Liverpool rested Robertson, Alexander-Arnold, Salah, Firmino and Oxlade-Chamberlain against Everton, Man City allowed Walker, Laporte, De …
Everton 0 - 0 Liverpool: Derby Day Stalemate at Goodison

Everton 0 - 0 Liverpool: Derby Day Stalemate at Goodison

The Details Date: 7/4/2018 Venue: Goodison Park, Liverpool Background Due to Liverpool's progression in this season's Champions League, today's derby took a little step down in the list of priorities for Klopp and his team. The Reds made five changes with a view to protecting the full-strength eleven for Tuesday night's game at the Etihad. That's not to say, however, that Liverpool did not still put a strong team out, a team that should be able to challenge for all three points …
Player Ratings as Liverpool's Undefeated Derby Streak Continues

Player Ratings as Liverpool's Undefeated Derby Streak Continues

"Need someone to do the post-match player ratings" was the request from AI's supremo Gags Tandon. "Great!", I thought; after wallopping City, Liverpool look like they can trounce any team in the world right now, and this will be my chance to dish 10 ratings all round for perhaps the greatest derby mauling of all time. How wrong I was. As I watched the game, I saw sparks and flickers of something, as Liverpool had the ball, but ultimately, Everton …

How Does Klopp Juggle Liverpool’s Huge Upcoming Games?

The international break has been and gone, and we can all get back to enjoying proper football again. As March slowly turns to April, Liverpool’s season is alive and kicking, with the Premier League and Champions League promising some great occasions in the coming weeks. Looking at the short-term outlook over the next two weeks, the Reds have four gigantic meetings on the horizon. First, they head to Crystal Palace for a tricky test on Saturday lunchtime, before hosting Man …
Liverpool player ratings as supreme Salah shines against Hornets

Liverpool player ratings as supreme Salah shines against Hornets

There was something so routine and yet so unbelievable about that. For a player who scores so frequently, it's mad that it's Mo Salah's first hat-trick. Even crazier that he decided to score four, not three. Liverpool 5-0 Watford - into the home-stretch of the season with a win. Andy Robertson's gang of beautiful lads Loris Karius (6): Another clean sheet, tidy in everything he did. Joe Gomez (5): Misjudges a header for Watford's first shot on target as Richarlison …
Heavy Metal Lullaby - Observations from LFC 0-0 Porto

Heavy Metal Lullaby - Observations from LFC 0-0 Porto

Liverpool cruised into the quarter-finals of the Champions League, following up their 5-0 away win at Porto with a comfy 0-0 draw in the return leg. So what were the observations from a rather un-exciting game? Boring, Boring Liverpool Do The Job On paper, it wasn’t billed as a hugely exciting game, and perhaps Liverpool deserve a lot of credit for making it every bit as boring as they could. In the first twenty minutes there was a lot of …
