Why Madrid Must Be Liverpool's Crowning Moment

Why Madrid Must Be Liverpool's Crowning Moment

This Liverpool team has to be remembered. This has been the main thought going round my head in recent weeks, during what has been one of the most emotionally draining seasons in memory. For anyone under the age of 40, I doubt I'm alone in saying a Reds side hasn't felt this special before - none have left you feeling so connected and in love with it. There have been some top class teams since the glory days, but this …

Liverpool's Fullback Creativity and Recruitment Targets – Part 1

Liverpool’s Fullback Creativity and Recruitment Targets – Part 1 An analytical deep dive to profile Liverpool's fullback creativity and answer the question - is it sustainable? This season, Liverpool consistently lacked a midfield set-up that tasked a player to be a high performing creator and goal threat. That meant the absence of a midfielder to carry the ball past defensive lines, complete creative passes into the box and take dangerous shots from inside the box, all at a high level. …

Time For Klopp's Liverpool To Stop Being Nearly Men

In Jürgen Klopp’s first season as Liverpool manager, his team reached an excellent two cup finals, losing the League Cup final on penalties to Man City, before throwing away a 1-0 lead at half-time to Sevilla in the Europa League final, a competition that included sensational wins over Man United, Villareal and most notably Borussia Dortmund. Now at the time, and certainly with hindsight, Liverpool fans certainly felt that these cup finals were the Reds ahead of schedule, and not …

Joe Gomez feels Reds are a stronger proposition ahead of this year's Champions League final

Liverpool's young defender Joe Gomez believes The Reds are better placed for Champions League success this season than they were ahead of their meeting with Real Madrid in Kiev a year ago.

This time around, the former Charlton Athletic player is just returning from another serious injury, having fractured his lower leg at Burnley in early December. However, positivity …
Try wipe the smile from my face

Try wipe the smile from my face

Grinning at the wall as I stand at a urinal. It’s the litmus test for happiness - male happiness, at least. Not only was I trying to engage the lavatorial tilework in a joyous staring contest, but I was also making eye-contact with other men in this den of iniquity - trying to engage them in conversation about a football match. That’s unheard of, in my life, at least. It’s normally a case of getting in, doing what I’ve got …

Muchas Gracias - How Liverpool upset the population of Barcelona

Three days after Liverpool emphatically turned around a three-goal deficit to reach the Champions League final, I arrived in Barcelona for a short trip still ecstatic from the result. What I learned just moments after getting off the plane was that this result hasn’t just hurt Messi and the rest of the team it’s hurt a whole city. Getting into a taxi outside the airport the driver immediately noticed my Liverpool jersey before venting his frustrations in a Spanish slur. …

Observations as Liverpool Miss Out on the Title

Observations as Liverpool Miss Out on the Title

This was grace in defeat, going down in the most beautiful way. Liverpool pushed and pulled and forced their way to 97 points, they made City work for the title. Amassing more points than the Invincibles and any United side managed by Sir Alex Ferguson, there could be no shame in not winning the most coveted prize. Sadio Mane signs out with a bang A team encapsulating so many attacking riches, Sadio Mane has stood up to become No.1 so …
Liverpool 2 Wolves 0 - Reds On Top for Seconds

Liverpool 2 Wolves 0 - Reds On Top for Seconds

And then there was one. One last Sunday to say our prayers and hope Manchester City open the door for Liverpool. It had been eight straight wins since a 0-0 draw at Goodison left just enough slack for City to overtake The Reds. The consensus was then that we would have to win out. A win against Wolves would accomplish that, but City have not cooperated. The only pause in their pursuit of a four trophy season has been in …
