Liverpool World Cup Watch: Matchday 2

Liverpool World Cup Watch: Matchday 2

Time flies by. Each team in Qatar has already played two matches, and some fates have already been decided. Qatar and Canada crashed out early while England and Brazil are now guaranteed a spot in the knockout stages. Ghana bested South Korea in a Match of the Tournament contender, while the US held England to a dreadfully boring stalemate. 7 Liverpool players remain in Qatar, and all of them thankfully remain fully fit and healthy. During Matchday 2, 5 of …
All Change at The Back This Summer: 2 In, 2 Out

All Change at The Back This Summer: 2 In, 2 Out

There’s always one attribute for elite players that can get ignored - availability. Consistency is the obvious one that gets mentioned and often used as an argument against footballers when debating their level. Liverpool fans could see both those charges levied against a couple of their centre backs right now and it would be very difficult if not near impossible to defend them. Ibrahima Konate looks to be fully recovered from his pre-season injury sustained against Stausbourg and his recent …
World Cup Matchday 1: Liverpool Roundup

World Cup Matchday 1: Liverpool Roundup

The first 5 days of the World Cup are now complete, and there's been no lack of excitement. We've seen Qatar embarrassed in their opening match, both members of the 2014 final beaten by Asian teams, and a Keylor Navas performance so bad that Alvaro Morata couldn't make him look good. Drama has been aplenty, with the Qatar government being under constant scrutiny for decisions involving beer sales, "One Love" armbands, and more. Hidden among the chaos have been 7 …
World Cup betting: 3 Liverpool players worth a look

World Cup betting: 3 Liverpool players worth a look

The 2022 World Cup has arrived and despite all the controversies surrounding the decision to host the tournament in Qatar this winter, fans are still excited to watch some of the world best players duke it out over the coming weeks. Several Liverpool players won’t be participating in the World Cup with the likes of Andrew Robertson, Joe Gomez, Mohamed Salah, Luis Diaz, Diogo Jota and Roberto Firminio all left back on Merseyside. However, Jurgen Klopp still has seven representatives …
Tony Evans: The Pantspissers Have Been Squealing

Tony Evans: The Pantspissers Have Been Squealing

The football authorities have developed this unhappy knack of taking something special and ruining it. Generally, it’s in pursuit of money. The World Cup is a perfect example. Switching focus from the domestic season to a tournament and back again in a six-week period doesn’t work. In a World Cup summer, the season ends, there’s space to readjust before international competition begins and a similar process happens between the final and the new league campaign. There’s a sense of completion …
Liverpool 3 - 1 Southampton - The Post-mortem

Liverpool 3 - 1 Southampton - The Post-mortem

A win is a win, and to sign off for the mid-season World Cup break with three points is a massive bonus for everything Liverpool FC related. With our manager (Jurgen Klopp) banished to the stands for one game, the pre match once again had an air of uncertainty. Would Southampton explode with that new manager bounce? Would Jurgen jump from the upper stands into the technical area? And would Liverpool once again capitulate at Anfield? The day prior seemed …
Gomez: LFC’s most cashable asset?

Gomez: LFC’s most cashable asset?

Ain’t nobody like Joe Gomez…It’s certainly been a challenging campaign for the 25 year old defender. Numerous lows have been punctuated with the occasional high, as Gomez has found himself the focus for many in a struggling Liverpool side. History has counted for the player somewhat with many, but what has been shown on the pitch recently has looked woefully short of what’s needed. As Liverpool head into the January window and with summer plans to consider, there’s understandable question …
Ibrahima Konate: The Present and Future of Liverpool's Defence

Ibrahima Konate: The Present and Future of Liverpool's Defence

Sometimes, all you need is one individual to make a huge difference in a struggling season. When it comes to selecting Liverpool's best and most important player, the same four or five names will always be bandied around. Alisson leads from the back and is unrivalled in his position in the world, the same applies to Virgil van Dijk despite an iffy campaign to date, while Mo Salah could now be one of the Reds' three greatest players of all …
Lessons Learned in the Reds' Victory Over Spurs

Lessons Learned in the Reds' Victory Over Spurs

A vital three points was obtained at the Spurs stadium, as Liverpool breathed some new life into a faltering league campaign. All the headlines were naturally grabbed by Mo Salah, as a ninth goal in eight games ensured the Reds at least kept the top 4 within their sites. There were a few other standouts from the game that it was impossible to ignore as the penultimate league match before the World Cup saw all three points return to Anfield. …
The Ibrahima Konate Effect

The Ibrahima Konate Effect

The summer before last saw Liverpool pay £34m for Ibrahima Konate, securing his services from German outfit RB Leipzig. The season prior had seen Liverpool‘s central defence end the season with Nat Phillips and Rhys Williams in the first team, as they scrambled for Champions League qualification. That season had seen Virgil van Dijk, Joe Gomez and Joel Matip, all succumb to long-term injuries. This also came after the sale of Dejan Lovren. Lovren was not replaced that summer, and …
