5 Takeaways From Liverpool's Preseason So Far

5 Takeaways From Liverpool's Preseason So Far

Preseason is at the same time very exciting and mind-numbingly boring. Everyone is eager to see the players back in the shirt and on the pitch. No matter how the last season ended, there’s always the promise that THIS season will be EVEN better. And then the latest preseason match starts with 22 guys running around some trying hard, some not, and you remember, oh yeah, these games are just exhibitions with a few moments of entertainment sprinkled around some …

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 …

The 'Awkward

The 'Awkward" Parisien | Mamadou Sakho

When Yannick Bolasie was roasting Dejan Lovren on Gerrard’s last Anfield appearance memories of the six consecutive away clean sheets that ended in April had long faded. The not so assured defending of the early season had returned. Coinciding with that period was the loss of Mamadou Sakho to injury. The Parisien who had been instrumental to that record-breaking accomplishment remains a figure who polarizes opinions. In December, 2014 during LFC’s league match with Burnley, James Pearce, Liverpool Echo’s LFC …
Goalkeepers: Mignolet, Mixes, and the Future (Part 2)

Goalkeepers: Mignolet, Mixes, and the Future (Part 2)

Read Part 1: ‘What Makes a Goalkeeper a Keeper?” here. The One Who Currently Rules with Velvet Gloves – Simon Mignolet If there ever was a player who exhibited traits of Jekyll and Hyde so clearly over a season, it has to be Liverpool’s goalkeeper Simon Mignolet. It’s fair to say that Mignolet would be the first one to put his hand up and say that the first half of the last season was downright abject. He suffered a crisis …
The Lesser of Two Evils | Liverpool's Goalkeeping Woes

The Lesser of Two Evils | Liverpool's Goalkeeping Woes

Is Brad Jones just a transient in the Liverpool goal? Brendan Rodgers’ comments about Mignolet being ‘indefinitely dropped’ seemed to suggest if Liverpool don’t sign a keeper in January, fans may be seeing an awful lot more of the Australian’s quiff between the sticks at Anfield. It’s been a rarity for Liverpool to have a reliable ‘keeper during the Premier League era having seen the likes of David James, Sander Westerveld, Jerzy Dudek, Chris Kirkland and Scott Carson all appear …
An In-Depth Look At The Squad | Liverpool FC

An In-Depth Look At The Squad | Liverpool FC

With the recent collapse of the Remy deal, and the subsequent signing of Dejan Lovren (Liverpool’s 7th first team centre-back), there’s hardly a greater time to look at squad depth. An analysis of any squad’s depth can be tricky. A popular rule of thumb would be two players per position, but when I think about squad depth, I have always felt this rule was slightly inadequate. How, for example, does this account for versatility among positions? With any one injury, a …
