Observations from the Thriller at The Emirates as Liverpool win!

Observations from the Thriller at The Emirates as Liverpool win!

The Premier League is back with a bang and in typical Liverpool fashion the Reds made their fans sweat on a result when it could've been much more comfortable. You could look at the negatives if you're that way inclined but, for me at least, it was a performance filled with positives and they're what should be taken away from such a result. A 4-3 victory away at the Emirates should be milked for all it's worth. It's a bogey ground …
Liverpool 2016/17 - Season Preview and Predictions

Liverpool 2016/17 - Season Preview and Predictions

Going from “we’re going to win the league” after beating Barcelona 4-0, to the outlook being doom and gloom within just 24 hours after losing to Mainz by the same scoreline is precisely why I try not to read too much into pre-season friendlies. They are essentially just for fitness, integrating new players and coaches trying out things from the training pitch in a match situation. Some things can be taken from pre-season, good and bad, but the opening Premier …
Are Liverpool Dark Horses for the Title?

Are Liverpool Dark Horses for the Title?

It's a new dawn in the Premier League. Not just in terms of more money than ever being pumped into the league effectively evening the playing field somewhat, but more importantly, never before have people been able to find a collection of the most influential managers in world football today within the same league at the same time. It's a who's who of managers as Antonio Conte and Pep Guardiola join Jurgen Klopp, Jose Mourinho, Arsene Wenger, Mauricio Pochettino, Slaven …
Karius' Injury Gives Mignolet a Stay of Execution

Karius' Injury Gives Mignolet a Stay of Execution

Since Jurgen Klopp was appointed as Liverpool manager he's been up against it. Before he even got chance to take charge of his first match he lost both Joe Gomez and Danny Ings to ACL injuries, he then had to navigate his way through the remainder of the season without Mamadou Sakho, Dejan Lovren, Jordan Henderson, Divock Origi, Philippe Coutinho, Roberto Firmino, Emre Can and Daniel Sturridge for large chunks of the season. The bad luck didn't end there. The …
Full Faith in Football under FSG

Full Faith in Football under FSG

Football fans are fickle. Liverpool fans seem even more so. Even as I type this out at half-time of our friendly against Wigan, there has been one peak example. Whilst receiving a square ball about 6 yards out from his net, Karius slipped and almost allowed a tap in for a Wigan striker. He recovered, and the ball went out for a corner. Now let me emphasize that this is Karius’ third match for us. He’s now only played 3 …
Are Formations that Important to Klopp?

Are Formations that Important to Klopp?

The picture below was posted on Social Media recently. It's of Jurgen Klopp holding a tactics board while talking to the squad during preseason. It's a picture that has generated a lot of debate on Twitter with fans talking about how the team lined up on the board. Depending on how you view it will have an impact on what formation you see. If you work under the assumption that Klopp is showing it to the players then it's a …
Can the Attack Fire Liverpool into the Top 4?

Can the Attack Fire Liverpool into the Top 4?

The Liverpool Echo, more specifically James Pearce, recently published an article informing Liverpool fans that Jurgen Klopp no longer had an interest in Bayern Munich's Mario Gotze and he was happy with his attacking options moving forward into the new season. Given the Reds were looking to bring in Monaco's Kylian Mbappe and Rennes' Ousmane Dembele it does strike me as odd that after only one attacking signing coming in so far this Summer in Sadio Mane, and with Jordon …
Will The Reds' New Signings Be Starters?

Will The Reds' New Signings Be Starters?

The initial buzz of the summer transfer window seems to have died down a little. The Piotr Zielinski deal never materialised as many had expected and a Mario Gotze U-turn meant the German hasn't been pictured leaning around Melwood just yet. Loris Karius is the sole signing this summer so far, but with Ben Chilwell expected to join along with January recruits Joel Matip and Marko Grujic it means the Reds have four new signings coming in already. Make no …
Who Will Be Liverpool Number One Next Season?

Who Will Be Liverpool Number One Next Season?

They say all goalkeepers are a little bit crazy. Then again, Simon Mignolet might be the exception to this rule. Steady, but rarely spectacular and for every calamity there’s a world-class save thrown in for good measure. He is a bookies worst nightmare; no-one can predict which Mignolet will show up on the day. That’s a goal even wrote a piece on their blog in January asking for replacements for Mignolet’s as his antics seemed to spoil lots of safe …
A Look at Liverpool Target Loris Karius

A Look at Liverpool Target Loris Karius

Twitter was abuzz on Monday when news broke that Liverpool were 'closing in' on a £5 million move for Mainz goalkeeper Loris Karius. Does he warrant the hype or is this a familiar case of fans overhyping a target? The 22 year old German has had an extraordinary season with his club side as he helped them finish 6th and only a mere five points off a Champions League place, a standout performance was away to Bayern in the Allianz …
