Liverpool's handling of Ibrahima Konate

Liverpool's handling of Ibrahima Konate

Ibrahima Konate has made just two starts for Liverpool following his £36million transfer from RB Leipzig this summer.  The first arrived in the 3-0 win over Crystal Palace in the Premier League and then he was included in the starting XI for the 3-0 Carabao Cup victory over Norwich City. It has now been close to a month since he last featured for the Reds and I’ve seen complaints from some fans.  With injuries stacking up elsewhere, people are starting …
Klopp’s Campaign Management

Klopp’s Campaign Management

Stubbornness, single mindedness, arrogance and an absolute inability to adjust one's methods, can be the downfall of even the best managers in modern football. In recent years we have seen the likes of Arsene Wenger and Jose Mourinho, unable to adapt to the modern needs of Premier League football, with both departing the division at relative low points. The signs are often evident, the fall off from brilliance usually gradual, but the reason for the decline always consistent. Football changes, …
James Milner: The Final Year

James Milner: The Final Year

It seems as though he has been around forever, and with one more year on his Liverpool contract, James Milner is still a valuable squad member. His minutes from last season will most probably now drop significantly, but his presence is still an important one for the reds. When leaving Manchester City at 29 years of age (in 2015), it would be fair to say that Milly had already enjoyed a fulfilling career, and could be proud of his achievements. …
Reds Get Stuck Into Second Day of Training in Austria

Reds Get Stuck Into Second Day of Training in Austria

Liverpool are settling into their Austrian training camp as they stepped it up a gear on their second day in the Salzburg region. A spec-less Jürgen Klopp - rumours are that he may have had laser eye surgery - oversaw proceedings with his coaching staff in the beautiful surroundings. The Reds welcomed back players from long-term injuries such as Virgil van Dijk, Joe Gomez, and Joël Matip. Matip and Gomez could be seen in the Liverpoolfc.com photos taking part in …
Red reveals words of advice and praise received from teammates

Red reveals words of advice and praise received from teammates

Liverpool defender Nat Phillips has spoken of some of the confidence-building words of encouragement he has heard from experienced teammates. Phillips played a pivotal role in Liverpool's strong run of form to the end of the season, normally alongside either Ozan Kabak or young Rhys Williams at the heart of The Reds' defence. Speaking to the Liverpool Echo, Phillips revealed how some of the more senior players in the squad would take every opportunity to pass on advice or messages …
Milner feels fatigue cost Liverpool as they are held to draw at Leeds United

Milner feels fatigue cost Liverpool as they are held to draw at Leeds United

Liverpool midfielder James Milner believes The Reds' Champions League draw with Real Madrid left them jaded at Elland Road on Monday night. Jürgen Klopp's Reds put everything they had into last Wednesday's quarter-final second leg performance against LaLiga giants Real Madrid at Anfield. It wasn't enough to stop Liverpool from going out but still left the squad lacking energy on Monday at Leeds United. Sadio Mané gave Liverpool a first-half lead but a late headed goal from defender Diego Llorente …

"It could have been a different story" - Milner laments Liverpool's loss to Real Madrid

James Milner says everyone at Liverpool has been left rueing their poor first-leg display which led to their Champions League exit. Jürgen Klopp's Reds lost 3-1 away to Real Madrid last week after a very poor performance on the night - a defeat they were unable to bounce back from on Wednesday at Anfield. Despite an impressive effort, the second leg finished 0-0 at Anfield and Liverpool are out of European football's premier competition. Speaking in his post-match interview, Liverpool …
Toothless Liverpool Exit Champions League After Real Madrid Stalemate

Toothless Liverpool Exit Champions League After Real Madrid Stalemate

Liverpool exited the Champions League after a 0-0 draw against Real Madrid at Anfield. Trailing 3-1 from the first tie, the Reds battered the Spaniards for 90 minutes, but couldn't find a way to goal against the deep sitting and disciplined Spaniards. Despite creating several good openings, the home team -- with Mohamed Salah particularly guilty -- will rue their poor finishing and, of course, the abject performance in the first leg. Liverpool started the game with a breakneck tempo …

"It's no different. So, crack on." - Liverpool veteran insists he still feels as fit as ever

Liverpool midfielder James Milner says he still feels as fit as he did several years ago and sees no end in sight yet. Milner turned 35 back in January and is now almost six years at the club having signed during Brendan Rodgers' final few months in charge - the summer of 2015. It's hard to put a value on the experience and influence a player like Milner can have on younger professionals at a club. However, his presence has …

"Things aren't happening for us at the moment" - Liverpool midfield veteran tries to figure out reason for Reds slump

Liverpool's James Milner showed he is struggling as much as any of us to explain his team's current slump in form after another Anfield defeat. Fulham's Mario Lemina pounced just before half-time to drill a low shot beyond Alisson Becker and into the Liverpool net. It was the only goal of the game, giving Scott Parker's Cottagers a huge three points in their quest for Premier League survival. After the game, Milner was asked for his thoughts on where it …
