Old Skool: Tremendous Trebles, and is the Quadruple Even Possible?

Old Skool: Tremendous Trebles, and is the Quadruple Even Possible?

With the international break upon us, Gags and Dave got together to discuss the final few weeks of the season - and asked the question on everyone's lips: Can we win the quadruple? The first talking point was a look back at how far Liverpool have come since the end of Rodgers' tenure in charge. Then, of course, there was a detailed look into the state of play now - and how we've slowly developed into one of the best …

Under Pressure: Pressing Monsters & Penalty Analytics

It was a double header on the Under Pressure show this week, and although they touched on the incredibly impressive performance last week against Leeds (eight big chances and six goals) the main focus was on the first trophy of the season: Liverpool are League Cup champions. First up was the key pressing story from the match - and more importantly the differing contrast with the fixture at the turn of the new year at Stamford Bridge. Furthermore there was …

Molby On The Spot: Kepa's Karma & Kelleher's Winner

Liverpool, after such an eventful campaign during the tournament - especially when they were two goals down to Leicester at Anfield - didn't expect all of that drama to be eclipsed in the final against Chelsea. Remarkably, despite the scoreline, you will struggle to see a match with more twists and turns! At one point, this all got a bit too much for Molby on the Spot host Trev Downey. Regardless of the events during the match, including disallowed goals …

Player Ratings as Reds are crowned League Cup Champions

We all need to catch our breaths after that Carabao Cup final. After an absolutely amazing 120 minutes ended 0-0, Kepa Arrizabalaga blazed the 22nd penalty of an incredible shootout over the bar, to give Jurgen Klopp his first domestic cup as manager of Liverpool. It was an even game throughout with both goalkeepers excelling in regulation time, and in extra time. It was scarcely believable that 120 minutes couldn't produce a goal. What followed was also scarcely believable penalty …
Liverpool 0 - 0 Chelsea - The League Cup Final Match Report

Liverpool 0 - 0 Chelsea - The League Cup Final Match Report

The initial stages and final Pre-match build-up was consumed with bad news, as the Spanish magician Thiago, caught an injury in the warm up. What started as a bad practical joke on Twitter, soon became reality, with Naby Keita stepping up to the first team. The tears of Thiago (on the sidelines) resonated with the Liverpool fanbase, and his failure to make the squad saw Harvey Elliott take a place on the reds bench. The reds look irregular in the …
Arsenal 0 - 2 Liverpool - The Player Ratings

Arsenal 0 - 2 Liverpool - The Player Ratings

Caoimhin Kelleher - 7.0 A good first half, with lots of possession against Arsenals press. Solid composure under pressure, and another good outing. Trent Alexander Arnold - 9.0 A great moment for the opening goal, and the playmaker is looking imperious on the ball. Gave good solidity at the back, and tracked runners well. Kept sliding into a central areas to create on the ball brilliance. The pass for the second goal was sensational. Andy Robertson - 7.5 Limited on …

Liverpool 0-0 Arsenal: Player Ratings as Reds fail to punish Xhaka and Arsenal

Takumi Minamino missed a glorious late chance as Liverpool limped to a goalless draw with Arsenal in the first leg of their League Cup semifinal. It was by far the best of the few opportunities The Reds fashioned following Granit Xhaka's two-reds-for-the-price-of-one dismissal 24 minutes into the game. Liverpool of course missed the threat, and above all the movement, of Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mane, but this shouldn't be considered an inevitable mid-AFCON slump. Like the game against Chelsea in …
A Positive Christmas

A Positive Christmas

It’s impossible to fully grasp how impactful this period of the season could be. It’s literally become a lottery for all football clubs, as to who in their squad list will test positive next. Managers cannot plan, training sessions and movement have to be monitored, yet fixtures will continue to come to all. The Premier League management group supposedly held a meeting on Monday, where the decision was taken to continue as planned. How this next week shapes up is …
One Night In Southampton

One Night In Southampton

When Jürgen Norbert Klopp arrived at Liverpool, there was a sense of relief and hope. The style of football quickly changed, the tempo of the matches picked up, the gegenpressing began to unfold, and certain players started to fall under the intense pressure. Brendan Rodgers and his patterns of play were forever changing at Liverpool, with the recruitment (post Luis Suarez) often horrific. That 6-1 defeat to Stoke should have been Brendan’s last game, however it is clear that the …
