Liverpool Must Create A Shakespearean Tragedy

Liverpool Must Create A Shakespearean Tragedy

You all know the predictable narrative for Monday night. Your world-weary mates and naysaying Twitter gurus have already told you what will happen. Leicester City, following their remarkably cynical decision to axe Claudio Ranieri, will benefit from the 'new boss bounce,' or at least some sort of 'caretaker convalescence,' as the delightfully monikered Craig Shakespeare takes temporary control of first team affairs. Liverpool, needing desperately to build upon the foundations of the win against Tottenham, will come immediately unstuck against …
Liverpool 4 - 1 Leicester City - Tactical Analysis

Liverpool 4 - 1 Leicester City - Tactical Analysis

The start of the 2016/17 season has been largely underwhelming for Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp and indeed for the clubs fans. A high octane start in the win at Arsenal was followed by a largely ineffectual performance against newly promoted Burnley. The last game before the international break saw Liverpool somewhat unfortunate to come away from a trip to Tottenham with only a 1-1 draw. Finally after the league has paused to catch its breath after the international break we …
Kop Still Silent For Daniel Sturridge

Kop Still Silent For Daniel Sturridge

Liverpool fans can be called as biased as others wish to. But Daniel Sturridge is the best English striker at the moment, probably in the past decade. Any fan, neutral or supports another club who are reading this can throw Harry Kane and Jamie Vardy’s goals & assists tally at me any day you want, but that will never change my opinion. So here’s why you should change yours. Sturridge has been a phenomenon since he’s signed for Liverpool in …

Media and Agents Exploiting the Liverpool Brand

Countless Twitter debates with fans of opposing teams centre around the idea that Liverpool are no longer a big club. Historically the giant of English football, the Reds took their domestic form into Europe, conquered it five times, and have the actual trophy to prove it. The clubs C.V would stand up to examination against anybodies. However, recent times have seen an abrupt end to the dominance Liverpool had enjoyed over England, and Europe, in the 1980's. One European Cup …
FSG Have Failed to Deliver

FSG Have Failed to Deliver

If ever there was a headline to cause debate this is it. No doubt many will read the title of this piece and either strongly agree or disagree without reading the bloody article. In the last few years I have strongly defended FSG and also given them heavy criticism. There are things they have done very well and things they have done very poorly. Let’s begin with the positives. On 15th October 2010, much to all our relief, FSG, then …
Can Liverpool Win The League With Rising Talent v Big Names?

Can Liverpool Win The League With Rising Talent v Big Names?

Antonio Conte. Jose Mourinho. Pep Guardiola. Jurgen Klopp. And maybe Arsene Wenger. This coming season, the Barclays Premier League is filled with world class managers who will have massive war chests at their disposal to sign big names, as they regularly do with the clubs they have formerly worked for. Jurgen Klopp would also have the same backing from the Liverpool owners after witnessing significant progress when he took over, appearing in two cup finals. But would he actually use …
Danny Ward's time to shine?

Danny Ward's time to shine?

After yet another mistake, this time against Sunderland, Simon Mignolet's time as undisputed Liverpool number 1 must be nearing an end. The ex-Sunderland 'keeper has had a torrid time this season and his 'mistakes' have cost Liverpool an apparent 15 points according to Squakwa.com. It's not as simple as this but add those 15 points to the clubs current tally now and it takes Liverpool to 50 points, and second in the league table. Goalkeeping errors against Sunderland, Arsenal and …
A Look at Lovren & Sakho: Can It Work?

A Look at Lovren & Sakho: Can It Work?

There have been many shouts for Liverpool to make a big dip into the January transfer window and pull out some real quality during Jurgen Klopp’s first attempt to strengthen the team.  Several positions have been cited as “needed” in the immediate future, with a right-sided centre-back on the list for quite some time. But there are other areas that could use reinforcement as well, and no one knows what Klopp has planned for Merseyside.  On Boxing Day, Liverpool fans …
Memorable Liverpool FC Boxing Day Games

Memorable Liverpool FC Boxing Day Games

I'm an advocate of changing the Premier League schedule so clubs have a mini winter break. I think it'll benefit the clubs in Europe and it'll benefit the league in the long term as you won't be blitzing the players and having them play in something silly like a game every 3 days...but, at the same time I think Boxing day football is alongside the opening day of the season and the final game of the season for games I …
One-Paced Liverpool's Need for Speed

One-Paced Liverpool's Need for Speed

When great attacking sides are mentioned, one quality above all springs to mind - pace. Barcelona’s front three of Lionel Messi, Neymar and Luis Suarez are synonymous with bursting runs past labouring defenders, while Alexis Sanchez and Eden Hazard lit up the Premier League last season as they left hapless opponents in their wake. So when the Liverpool lineup for the West Bromwich Albion game was announced, I was more than a little concerned by our front three. Christian Benteke, …
