Is it time to give Philippe Coutinho more responsibility?

Is it time to give Philippe Coutinho more responsibility?

Should Liverpool give Philippe Coutinho a vice-captaincy role? Jurgen Klopp's appointment was the catalyst for evolution of this current Liverpool squad. From meek, mild mannered pushovers with a brittle mentality to what we as supporters now get to watch on a regular basis; a ravenous squad with an appetite for winning who never actually know then they're defeated. It's been quite the transformation. There's been growth throughout, not just as a team on the whole but on an individual level. …
Premier League Preview | Liverpool vs Chelsea

Premier League Preview | Liverpool vs Chelsea

Liverpool welcome Chelsea to Anfield on Wednesday night as they look to do the double over their rivals, who have had a hugely disappointing campaign. Liverpool are unbeaten in their last seven home matches in the Premier League (W4 D3). The Reds have scored in each of their last 12 league games, their best scoring run in the top flight since April 2014, when they scored in 25 consecutive games. The likes of Roberto Firmino and Daniel Sturridge have impressed …
Jurgen Klopp - Talk About The Passion

Jurgen Klopp - Talk About The Passion

There’s a video from the Villareal game going around at the moment. It shows Jurgen Klopp watching James Milner throw himself wholeheartedly into the shins of a Villareal player in the last minute. Jurgen leaps up at this and does that strange arm thing he likes to do. He then turns to the crowd and urges them on to be as enthusiastic about that tackle as he is. I’ll be honest here. I’m not a fan of managers or players …

At this time of year, Liverpool supporters are getting excited at the prospect of who the club will be signing in the summer. The excitement has reached fever pitch with Jurgen Klopp in charge, with daily rumours circulating about who his targets are and speculation mounting about the changes that will be made to take the club onto the next level.

Premier League Preview | Liverpool vs Watford

Liverpool welcome Watford to Anfield on Sunday afternoon following their success in overturning a 1-0 deficit against Villarreal to progress to the Europa League final. Liverpool are on a ten match unbeaten run at Anfield heading into the game, including four Europa League wins (W7 D3) which has seen them book their place in Basel for the final of the competition.

Managing Daniel Sturridge - Method to Klopp's Madness?

Managing Daniel Sturridge - Method to Klopp's Madness?

For the best part of a fortnight now Daniel Sturridge and Jurgen Klopp have dominated this website, our podcasts and social media. So many questions were being asked about the pair, from why Jurgen hadn't played Sturridge in the first leg against Villarreal to whether Sturridge was at odds with Klopp, the fans and the club. Well, finally Daniel Sturridge has spoken out on the particular subject and in the interview he gave to the Liverpool Echo he's put all of …
James Milner: Divisive, but increasingly brilliant

James Milner: Divisive, but increasingly brilliant

I have spent the whole of James Milner’s long and illustrious career trying to decide how good he is at football. He has forever baffled me. He was tipped as England’s new wonderkid when he burst onto the scene for Leeds United back in the early 2000s, but barring a few glimpses of class, I remained unconvinced. His spells at Newcastle and Aston Villa seemed to pass me by a little - I was too busy obsessing about how good …
Jürgen Klopp – The Human Juicer

Jürgen Klopp – The Human Juicer

The Liverpool boss is having a positive impact on the fans; even the doubters are slowly but surely being converted into believers. Some fans have even likened to him to football's equivalent of a messiah figure, here to steer Liverpool Football Club out of the dark times and restore this great club back to its former glory. Great shout but too generic and obvious for my liking. If I could compare Jürgen to anyone or anything, it would be *Drum …
Player Profiling is Key to a Successful Summer for Liverpool

Player Profiling is Key to a Successful Summer for Liverpool

The transfer window, and the weeks leading up to it, is football fans' equivalent of Christmas as a child. Mystique surrounds the bi-yearly event. The hours spent talking about players you'd sign for your club becomes relevant. Reassurance, vindication and acknowledgement is up for grabs, if Liverpool sign a player you've put a case forward for then it's a kind of pat on the back we, humans, crave deep down. A kind of 'ha, my suggestions aren't that crazy after …
Observations from Liverpool's win against Villarreal

Observations from Liverpool's win against Villarreal

Was it ever really in doubt? Liverpool at Anfield on a European night. There's nothing quite like it. There's an aura of invincibility and a sense of destiny when the Reds are in Europe. It's in the clubs blood. Feeding off such support the heart is once again pumping with Anfield rocking as Villarreal came to town. The fans were pumped. The players were pumped. Klopp was orchestrating everything. Villarreal turned up with a lead and a confident, bordering on …
