Player Ratings as Liverpool's Undefeated Derby Streak Continues

Player Ratings as Liverpool's Undefeated Derby Streak Continues

"Need someone to do the post-match player ratings" was the request from AI's supremo Gags Tandon. "Great!", I thought; after wallopping City, Liverpool look like they can trounce any team in the world right now, and this will be my chance to dish 10 ratings all round for perhaps the greatest derby mauling of all time. How wrong I was. As I watched the game, I saw sparks and flickers of something, as Liverpool had the ball, but ultimately, Everton …
Liverpool's Centre-Backs - Consistently Inconsistent

Liverpool's Centre-Backs - Consistently Inconsistent

What a game! There is nothing like a European night at Anfield. I was several thousand kilometres away and couldn't fall asleep all night, like a little kid, just buzzing. The attack and midfield will rightfully claim most of the glory but the defending in the second half was probably the Red's best display in that regard in years. Holding the offensive juggernaut that is Manchester City to ZERO shots on target is as impressive as anything LFC have done …

Liverpool 0-0 Porto: Player ratings from a European snoozefest

Job done, professional work, blah blah blah. That was a little boring, wasn't it? Liverpool (5) 0-0 (0) Porto. Onto Old Trafford and into the quarter-finals. Another clean sheet for Big Loris Loris Karius (7): Keeps clean sheets, looks cool. And now he's done the simple stuff in a simple manner! Lively off his line in the first half, a couple of average saves. Good that he was kept in. Joe Gomez (6): A little rusty on his comeback but nothing to …

Liverpool's Old Guard Barely Hanging On

Liverpool's Old Guard Barely Hanging On

For Liverpool supporters, transfers can never come fast enough. We always want to push that revolving door a little faster until we find a combination of players that starts filling up the trophy cabinet again. However, glance at the squad from 2013/14 season, just four years ago and you’ll notice that only a few faces remain. The crocked club captain; Jordan Henderson. The want-away striker; Daniel Sturridge. The freshly sentenced right back; Jon Flanagan. And the benched ‘keeper; Simon Mignolet. …
