Ageism Is Working Against James Milner

Ageism Is Working Against James Milner

When a footballer hits 30, or at least in and around that age, something instantly changes in the way they are perceived by supporters. Every bad performance is suddenly due to their advancing years, every misplaced pass is because they’re not as young as they once were and they are used as target practice every time their side suffers defeat. Steven Gerrard even suffered from it, which says it all. This is something we are suddenly seeing come to the …
Wolves v Liverpool FA Cup Preview - With The Reds' focus elsewhere, will Wolves pounce?

Wolves v Liverpool FA Cup Preview - With The Reds' focus elsewhere, will Wolves pounce?

The Details Venue - Molineux, Wolverhampton Referee - Paul Tierney Date & Time - Monday, January 7th @ 19:45 Current Odds - Wolves 29/10, Draw 27/10, Liverpool 1/1 Form Wolves Form Nuno Espirito Santo's side have shown some real inconsistency in recent months. Wolves currently sit 9th in the Premier League table though so they would have to be very happy with that upon their return to English football's top division. They had a fantastic 3-1 win at Spur in their final game of …
Why there’s every reason to believe Liverpool can win the league

Why there’s every reason to believe Liverpool can win the league

Supporting this Liverpool team is a real joy at the moment. After an incredible December, the mighty Reds sit at the top of the table. A healthy 7 point lead over nearest rivals City. If that kind of lead had been offered to any Liverpool fan a month ago, every fan would have bitten your hand off. Yet here we are. Destiny awaits It seems harsh that after such a tremendous end to a memorable year another serious test awaits …
Pondering a New Year's Resolution for Jurgen Klopp

Pondering a New Year's Resolution for Jurgen Klopp

Aside from wanting to pick up another language, go cycling more and finally get around to digging up that family tree, you'd expect Jurgen Klopp to have a fair amount of football on his mind as we enter 2019. It's been a fruitful year for the German as he continued his upward trajectory of progress at Liverpool FC with another top-four finish, run to the Champions League final and then an unbeaten start to the new Premier League season. So, …
The Premier League title is Liverpool's to win

The Premier League title is Liverpool's to win

How good does the league table look? Liverpool are perched at the top of the tree, after a fantastic start to the season. Few will begrudge them their place ahead of a terrific Man City team who are showing small signs of last season's exertions catching up. A record breaking 100 points and the need for excruciating, constant attention to detail. Is it sustainable for another gruelling Premier League campaign? 90-95 points is probably where Liverpool need to be to …
Liverpool's 48 From 18

Liverpool's 48 From 18

See! And there’s you – YOU! – slagging off Roy Hodgson! Roy Hodgson, for God’s sake! The very pinnacle of the establishment. The embodiment of the English game. Dignity personified. How dare you —YOU of all people — have the infernal GALL to do so much as raise your voice in criticism against this much-loved figurehead of the beautiful game. This is why I’m different to you. You and your filthy kind. At no point did I give up on …
Wolverhampton 0-2 Liverpool: A Tactical Breakdown

Wolverhampton 0-2 Liverpool: A Tactical Breakdown

Wolverhampton Wanderers have been a breath of fresh air to the Premier League. They may have been bankrolled by Jorge Mendes, but their enthralling style, talent-filled roster, and seriously cool manager, Nuno Espirito Santo, have rightfully garnered the praise of pundits and fans across the country. Wolves are no pushover side though, in games against Arsenal and Spurs, they outscored the opposition in xG, and were extremely unfortunate to draw and lose in those respective games, whilst they also managed …
Player Ratings as Reds ride Molineux challenge

Player Ratings as Reds ride Molineux challenge

Another obstacle overcome, this time in the form of a side that have taken points from Chelsea and Manchester City this season. Brilliant from Mo to open the scoring, with Van Dijk finally popping in a league goal to seal another vital three points. 4 points up for a few hours at least... Ratings... Another clean sheet yawn Alisson (6): A couple of sloppy moments but nothing else that had me worried, made some tidy saves and deserved his clean …
Liverpool 3-1 Manchester United: A Tactical Breakdown

Liverpool 3-1 Manchester United: A Tactical Breakdown

There is no other game which manages to unnerve me like playing Manchester United does. Irrespective of form or quality, as matchday approaches, I fill with dread. On the morning of a match, I can barely eat. Perhaps it's the years of torment at school after losing, and unexplainable events which always seem to favour United that has caused this. Nonetheless, despite Liverpool's greatest ever start to a Premier League season, and mere minutes before the teams were announced, all I …
Naby Keita Offers Liverpool Perfect Weapon to End United Hoodoo

Naby Keita Offers Liverpool Perfect Weapon to End United Hoodoo

Liverpool's recent Premier League record against Manchester United is woeful. If all matches were played without context, United would be the biggest two games of each league season for the Reds. Since Brendan Rodgers' wonderful 2013-14 side went and won 3-0 at Old Trafford, United haven't lost in the league to Liverpool. Domestically, United are eight unbeaten in the fixture, winning five and drawing three. Whilst that record doesn't only cover Jurgen Klopp's tenure, the German hasn't had much fortune …
