West Ham 1-1 Liverpool: What Went Wrong?

West Ham 1-1 Liverpool: What Went Wrong?

Liverpool battled out another frustrating stalemate, recording a second successive 1-1 draw, this time against West Ham. Considered by some an opportunity scorned, enabling Manchester City a route back into the Premier League title race (although they were never really out of it were they) and others another point in a patch where the team are clearly struggling, there remains mixed emotions across the park about how the table is shaping up in the early stages of February. Like the …
Adam Lallana, What is the Point?

Adam Lallana, What is the Point?

Seriously though, what is the point? You've read the title, you may or may not agree with the sentiment it offers but either way you're now expecting to read a piece of writing justifying whether or not there is actually any point in Liverpool's continual employment of their number 20. Yet here I sit, staring deeply at my laptop, wondering how to describe or even justify a sigh? An expression of 'meh', the reaction completely devoid of emotion that engulfs …
Key Stats As Reds Miss Golden Opening vs Foxes

Key Stats As Reds Miss Golden Opening vs Foxes

Well, that was bad, wasn’t it? Liverpool dropped points to a side outside the top six for the first time with a disappointing 1-1 draw with Leicester City. But what were the key stats from a cold, and horrible night inside Anfield? Lacklustre Reds Fail To Fire As far as attacking performances go, this was bad. Liverpool mustered just ten shots, compared to their PL average of 15, with just seven of those coming from open play and just four …
How Klopp Has Made a Weapon of Versatility

How Klopp Has Made a Weapon of Versatility

“He is a brilliant player and I am happy that he can play…he has a defending brain and can do it in different positions, it’s good.”
Klopp said of Fabinho following his impressive performance at centre back against Brighton. It was a performance emblematic of Klopp’s plans coming to fruition. Indeed, if the Reds’ title challenge shows anything, it’s that long-term planning, with the right investment and right appointments, works. Philosophies, they work too. A sense of the …
Liverpool's Progression Embodied By Those Left Behind

Liverpool's Progression Embodied By Those Left Behind

Liverpool have made undoubted progress over the last few years. From a team ridiculed for their defensive mishaps, often succumbing strong leads due to individual errors and a lack of authority, to one able to ride out tight 1-0 advantages with relative comfort, Jurgen Klopp has transformed the very foundations that made a hunt for trophies look so bleak. He’s also ignited a fire within the final third, becoming one of the most enthralling sides within England’s top flight. Perhaps …
Fixing Liverpool's Woes with the 4-2-3-1

Fixing Liverpool's Woes with the 4-2-3-1

Liverpool are currently ailing. It seems almost ludicrous to say, given they currently sit two points behind the automaton that is table-topping Manchester City, but ask any fan and the 2-0 defeat to Red Star Belgrade in the Champions League was not an outlier of a result. Not when Liverpool couldn’t take advantage of Arsenal’s obvious frailties, not when they only escaped with a point against City because of Riyad Mahrez’ wild attempt at a penalty, and not when Huddersfield …
Observations as Liverpool deliver dire performance in Belgrade

Observations as Liverpool deliver dire performance in Belgrade

Last season Liverpool were effervescent in the Champions League, breaking the record for goals scored in a single European campaign and generally taking teams by storm with a high intensity, gegenpressing style that put the opposition straight on the backburner with no hope of recovering after a 10-15 minute blitz. It was the opposite case in Belgrade however, with the Reds struggling to get going from the first whistle to last, showing a lack of guile and creativity to fashion …

Observations as Liverpool Waltz Past Cardiff

Observations as Liverpool Waltz Past Cardiff

Liverpool maintained the 'Fortress' Anfield record after a bit of huff 'n' puff against Cardiff. The game was bereft of excitement for large parts until Liverpool decided to turn it on late in the game. The key observations from the game: The ebb and flow This game was a funny one (and not in a good manner). Liverpool, as expected, got off to a quick start and scored an early goal. Liverpool then struggled to create anything noteworthy post that …
