Don’t Look Back In Anger

Don’t Look Back In Anger

The nervous nature and anticipation of a big major game rarely sees the emotional ride end when the final whistle blows. There’s sometimes jubilation, now and then dismay, and here and there it’s bitter annoyance. Football can offer the best of times, yet deliver periods of distress that can be absolute weekend destroyers. As match week three drew to a close, there’s a few conclusions that can be garnered from this early period. It’s a short duration in the early …
Diogo Jota: Liverpool's future No9

Diogo Jota: Liverpool's future No9

It’s no secret that Liverpool would benefit from a reliable centre-forward. Roberto Firmino is good for double digits in the Premier League and he brings more to the team than just goals. But it is becoming increasingly difficult to overlook the fact a ruthless No9 would make a difference.  Now, the dream signing for most would be Erling Haaland. The 21-year-old has 42 goals in 45 Bundesliga appearances for Borussia Dortmund following his move from Red Bull Salzburg in January …
Who Replaces The Irreplaceable?

Who Replaces The Irreplaceable?

All good things come to an end, it’s sad but true. There’s always that outstanding TV show you binged, that particular period of time that you loved, or even the sport you played, that eventually had to come to an end. Time catches up with everything & everyone, especially in football. When you look at Roy Hodgson and his tenure as Liverpool manager, it was a sad, depressing and underwhelming period that couldn’t end quick enough, much like reality TV …
Jordan Henderson - The Final Contract

Jordan Henderson - The Final Contract

Every machine requires certain parts to work efficiently, some are the more intricate components, whereas some are simply the much needed pieces that help push the machine to where it needs to be. Over the years Liverpool Football Club has had some truly magnificent midfielders that have held the captain's armband, helping to push their red machine to greatness within their own era. Graeme Souness, Ronnie Whelan & Steven Gerrard are just some of the iconic names that sit as …
Thiago - It’s a Kinda Magic

Thiago - It’s a Kinda Magic

Football can be pure joy to the eye, with wonderful technicians (thanks Brendan) scattering the past and present of the game. I grew up watching the gliding destruction of John Barnes, mesmerised by his abilities. Later I would sit pitch side, enthralled by the elegance of Steve McManaman as chalk dusted his boots, and I now shuffle forward in my seat every time a certain Spaniard receives the ball. When rock and roll football announced its arrival at Anfield, it …
Mo Salah - The World's Greatest in Waiting

Mo Salah - The World's Greatest in Waiting

At 29 years of age, Mohamed Salah stands as one of the five or six best forwards in world football. His goal return since becoming a red is simply phenomenal. 126 goals in 204 games is world class, and with much still to come, we could be about to see him evolve into the worlds best player. Certain generations have certain superstar footballers that dominate the stage, and these are usually attacking players. Rightly or wrongly, these types of player …
Diogo Jota: Is he ready to replace Roberto Firmino?

Diogo Jota: Is he ready to replace Roberto Firmino?

Diogo Jota has a bit of a knack for not particularly playing that well but managing to find the back of the net. It is a handy trait to have.  He did just that against Norwich City in Liverpool’s season opener, scoring the first as the Reds romped to what was a relatively straightforward 3-0 win.  The 24-year-old scored with what was an instinctive finish after Mohamed Salah’s touch fell kindly into his path. It was a finish that fans …
The importance of Virgil Van Dijk

The importance of Virgil Van Dijk

Earlier on in pre-season, Liverpool journalists claimed Ibrahima Konate was likely going to start the season alongside Joel Matip in defence. It was something of a surprise to see Virgil van Dijk named alongside the former Schalke man in the starting XI against Norwich City on Saturday. He'd come through the friendlies unscathed but it felt like a start in the Premier League was a bit too soon. Maybe Jurgen Klopp felt the Canaries were an ideal team to ease …

Liverpool Begin Premier League Campaign With Norwich Win

Liverpool Begin Premier League Campaign With Norwich Win

Liverpool opened up their Premier League campaign with a 3-0 win away to Norwich. Goals from Diogo Jota, Roberto Firmino, and Mohamed Salah wrapped up the points for the Reds, continuing the good form they showed at the end of last season in a good -- if not spectacular performance -- performance. Jurgen Klopp elected for an attacking lineup with the front three of Sadio Mane, Salah and Jota supported a midfield of Naby Keita, Alex Oxlade Chamberlain, and James …
