Rage Against The Machine

Rage Against The Machine

Revenge is a dish best served cold, supposedly. Well this Saturday evening represents an opportunity for this Liverpool side to take out their obvious frustrations on Real Madrid, who await them in this season’s Champions League Final. The last final meeting was devastating, and memories clearly still linger with key members of the Reds' squad. Throughout the entirety of last weekend's final league game, I did everything I could to avoid actually sitting and watching the match. With the eventual …
One Last Steven Gerrard Assist

One Last Steven Gerrard Assist

This coming Sunday marks potentially the most important day in Liverpool's season, certainly until the following weekend. The Reds' campaign has been littered with pivotal games, vital weeks, and must win scenarios. This is where the Anfield giants now sit within the hierarchy of all things football, and long may it continue. Nothing less than a Reds win at Anfield (against Wolves) will suffice this Sunday. To have any chance of clinching the title, three points must be achieved in …
Under Pressure: Dynamic Diaz, Klopp's Man Management & Naby's New Role

Under Pressure: Dynamic Diaz, Klopp's Man Management & Naby's New Role

It was another double header for the Under Pressure crew, and it was a review of the Reds' domestic cup double - already - this season as they won the FA Cup final on penalties against Chelsea at Wembley. In recent seasons it hasn't been a priority for Liverpool, mainly due to the strength of the squad available but this campaign has seen a real desire to succeed in all competitions. Phil Barter reflected on the ability of the manager …
History Is Being Written

History Is Being Written

The weekend's games brought up a variation of emotions for all Reds fans, with the jubilant FA Cup Final victory quickly replaced by pure viewership of the West Ham v City battle. Both games ended in a draw, and where Liverpool's score line eventually produced silverware, it could be that City’s draw will inevitably do the same. Points will still need to be dropped by City for Liverpool to stand a chance, and a stand-alone win against Southampton will keep …
Molby on the Spot: Chelsea's Pre-Final Form & Guardiola's Liverbird Neon Signs

Molby on the Spot: Chelsea's Pre-Final Form & Guardiola's Liverbird Neon Signs

While Liverpool seemingly play crucial, pressure-filled matches every three days recently, with fans and more importantly players barely able to catch a breath, it was up to Jan Molby and Trev Downey to preview the second final of the season for Klopp's team. Before discussing Chelsea, they touched on the big signing for Man City, and how effective Erling Haaland will be for the Citizens. How good was the value of the transfer fee? How will he fit into Pep's …
Take The Red Pill

Take The Red Pill

A point at home to a good Spurs side (who are managed by a world class manager), was seen as a major disappointment at the weekend. That is the mentality and level that this Liverpool team and manager have created, and one that should be respected for getting us to that point. The disappointment was real, but the door remains ajar on the reds hopes of achieving the improbable. In a period where Manchester City have been obscenely bankrolled by …
Observations: Don't Panic

Observations: Don't Panic

Dear Reader, this writer had the pleasure of watching Liverpool vs Villarreal on BT Sport. After a torrid first half in which the Reds were stunned by a daring tactical approach by knockout king Unai Emery (more on that later), there was something of a theme for the coverage. "Bring on Henderson", "need the captain's experience", "there has to be personnel changes from Klopp". The consensus seemed to be that Liverpool's midfielders had struggled, particularly Naby Keita, and therefore substitutions …
Molby On The Spot: The Next Evolution of Klopp's Legacy

Molby On The Spot: The Next Evolution of Klopp's Legacy

As the dust was settling on the Reds' two goal victory in the first leg of the Champions League semi-final against Villarreal, news started to filter through that Jürgen Klopp was discussing the possibility of a new extension to his contract that was due to run out in 2024. Hours later, and the deal was done. In the blink of an eye Liverpool's manager had agreed to extend until 2026. Trevor and Jan discussed this on the latest edition of …
Klopp vs Lampard

Klopp vs Lampard

Jürgen Klopp is one of the most respected managers in world football. Many fans of rival clubs surely admire the personality and performance of the charismatic German. In world football there are maybe three or four world-class managers, and Klopp is certainly one of those. To make an enemy of Jürgen Klopp is often detrimental, but to rile Jürgen Klopp with silly antics is still quite common. In the recent past, managers such as Chris Wilder, Sean Dyche, Mikel Arteta, …
RAW: Rampant Reds destroy the soul of the Red Devils

RAW: Rampant Reds destroy the soul of the Red Devils

If getting hammered five-nil at Old Trafford, with a sitting duck manager, wasn't enough Manchester United decided to try and replicate it once more at Anfield. The similarities were striking: early goal for Liverpool before the 5th minute; Paul Pogba leaving the pitch early; a lame manager with no influence; and Mo Salah running riot and the Reds racking up a cricket score (well, an English batting performance anyway). On Post-Match RAW, Dave and Hari joined Trevor in his rural …
