Au Revoir To The Three Musketeers

Au Revoir To The Three Musketeers

The Three Musketeers are notoriously a trio of sword wielding heroes, who use their different personas to swashbuckle themselves to victory. The idea is that their mantra of ‘all for one, and one for all’, is enough to see them overcome the most insurmountable of odds. This Sunday in France could well be a fitting finale to another group of three, as the Reds begin their final preparations to Saturday’s match against Real Madrid. In a Jurgen Klopp reign that …
Post-Match RAW: Into The FA Cup Last Four & How to Judge Jota

Post-Match RAW: Into The FA Cup Last Four & How to Judge Jota

Cup rotation took place at the weekend, and not just in the Liverpool team to face Nottingham Forest as Guy Drinkel replaced Trevor Downey as host of Post-Match RAW, and Lisa-Marie Hanahan plus Dave Horrocks joined stalwart Dave Hendrick to look back at the narrow victory in the FA Cup quarter-final.  Because of the many changes in the Reds' team it led to plenty of debate about the futures of some of these players on the fringes of Klopp's …

Nottingham Forest 0 - 1 Liverpool - The Player Ratings

Alisson Becker - 7.5 A busier game than he could have envisioned, with a few moments of frantic play engulfing his penalty box. A clean sheet, some smart saves, and a semi-final awaits the giant Brazilian. Joe Gomez - 8.0 A very good game for the England defender. Was understandably lacking in the normal Trent style attacking sense, but any hesitation in possession was made up for with energy and intent. His covering pace got him out of danger when …
Post-Match RAW: Klopp The Master, Poundland Pep & The Morbid Brothers

Post-Match RAW: Klopp The Master, Poundland Pep & The Morbid Brothers

Before the match, hosts Arsenal were in a run of form they've not seen for years, putting themselves in pole position to qualify for the Champions League. Nevertheless, they were playing against the form side in Premier League (and Europe) as Liverpool travelled to London to face the Gunners. On Post-Match RAW, Trevor hosted Dave Hendrick and Jim Boardman for the instant reaction to what ended up being quite a comfortable victory in the end. First up was the idea, …
A Timely Reboot

A Timely Reboot

Liverpool finally lost a game at Anfield this week, with their second leg tie against Inter ending in defeat. In a period where Jürgen Klopp has had no choice but to rotate his stellar cast of performers, it was inevitable that a slight bump in the road would occur. It reminded me of a time where Blackburn Rovers once lost to Liverpool, before immediately celebrating their Premier League title win. No Rovers fan cared about the loss that day, and …
Molby: Is Harvey Elliott the Next David Silva?

Molby: Is Harvey Elliott the Next David Silva?

There was a mixed reaction from some sections of the Liverpool fanbase when quotes emerged of Sadio Mane saying the AFCON triumph, with Senegal, meant more to him than any other trophy he's ever won. While Jan Molby said he completely understood that, he had a slightly different view of the silverware he won himself on Merseyside. The other main focus of the podcast was the three-one victory over Cardiff City in the FA Cup at Anfield, and in particular …
How Does Diaz Compare to Mo Salah at Roma?

How Does Diaz Compare to Mo Salah at Roma?

In the aftermath of the Diaz transfer being confirmed, those involved on the Under Pressure podcast were investigating the stats behind the Reds' new signing. In an effort to compare different leagues, Dan Kennett used two different academic studies (that you can read here and here).
"Arguing about domestic league strength is something that soccer fans seems to never tire of. (“Could Messi do it on a cold rainy night in Stoke?”) Many of these conversations are anecdotal, leading to …

Liverpool 3 - 1 Cardiff - The Player Ratings

Caoimhin Kelleher - 6.5 Possibly lucky with the yellow card incident, and moments of rashness needs to be parked. No fault for the goal, and Milner should be pinned for the blame there. Trent Alexander Arnold - 7.0 Another assist, in an ordinary performance against another low block side. The thought of this man being joined by Elliott and Mo once more is tantalising. Kostas Tsimikas - 7.0 Crossed, crossed and crossed some more. A willing outlet and good deputy …
Diogo Jota & His Starting Role

Diogo Jota & His Starting Role

When Liverpool signed Diogo Jota from Wolves, it was a signing that appeared reactionary to the failure to obtain Timo Werner. In the 18 months since he arrived, Diogo has proven to be not only a valuable rotation piece, but a player that can succeed Sadio Mané on the left-hand side of Liverpool‘s famed attack. The Timo Werner bullet appears to have been dodged, and Jota now holds a value twice what was paid. This season we have seen Diogo …
Arsenal 0 - 2 Liverpool - The Player Ratings

Arsenal 0 - 2 Liverpool - The Player Ratings

Caoimhin Kelleher - 7.0 A good first half, with lots of possession against Arsenals press. Solid composure under pressure, and another good outing. Trent Alexander Arnold - 9.0 A great moment for the opening goal, and the playmaker is looking imperious on the ball. Gave good solidity at the back, and tracked runners well. Kept sliding into a central areas to create on the ball brilliance. The pass for the second goal was sensational. Andy Robertson - 7.5 Limited on …
