Liverpool's Season Starts Here

Liverpool's Season Starts Here

The day that you arrive at a holiday destination can often have a strange feel to it. You’re still a bit jaded after a long flight, drive or however you’ve made your way there, and you don’t feel completely in holiday mode until you wake up the following morning. Call it a strange comparison - it is - but Liverpool’s season feels a bit like that. It has all been a bit stressful and tense to date, with almost no …

Premier League 2018/19 Season Preview

Premier League 2018/19 Season Preview

After an enormously entertaining World Cup full of drama and decadence, we the football faithful have been cast into the darkness of a month without the beautiful game. This has not stopped the majority of the big Premier League clubs from making money moves in anticipation. Ahead, we preview what to expect from them this season. Arsenal Arsenal’s relatively early business in securing the tenacious Lucas Torreira (aptly auto-corrected to terrier), supplemented with the earlier additions of Borussia Dortmund’s spine, …
2018-19 Premier League fixture reaction. The season we win it?

2018-19 Premier League fixture reaction. The season we win it?

With the recent disappointment of the proposed Nabil Fekir signing falling through, Liverpool fans have been in need of a distraction to take their minds off the circus that the transfer window rumour mill. Not only is the World Cup due to begin today (hooray football is back!), but the 2018-19 Premier League fixture list has also been released. As a fan base, we have the tendency to dwell on frustrations of the past, so the 2018-19 fixture list is …
The Bottom-13: Liverpool Have Conquered Their Achilles Heel

The Bottom-13: Liverpool Have Conquered Their Achilles Heel

I went for a drink with a good friend last week - A Man United fan, unfortunately - and as usual, we spent a vast chunk of our time talking about football. The usual discussion about how the top-four will end up looking cropped up, and after making our predictions - it will be Chelsea and Arsenal who miss out, in case you're wondering - my mate declared, “Liverpool would be a shoo-in if they could just find consistency against …
Lack of ruthlessness hurting Liverpool

Lack of ruthlessness hurting Liverpool

Enough praises have been sung of Liverpool’s fab four and how they have taken Liverpool’s campaign by the scruff of the neck and delivered regularly despite the failings of the defence and midfield. This has been the story since Jurgen Klopp first arrived at Anfield and while some amount of criticism must be directed towards him for failure to tackle this problem in almost 2 years, he can be given leeway for shaping probably England’s best forward line. A 5-0 …
Why Can Liverpool Only Win One Way?

Why Can Liverpool Only Win One Way?

Whilst looking at some of the stats that fell out of Liverpool’s win over Bournemouth, one, in particular, stood out to me – seven out of Liverpool’s nine Premier League wins had been by three goals or more. I quickly realised that our three Champions League group stage wins fit this narrative too, and so when it was pointed out to me that in fact, Liverpool’s last eight wins were all by three or more goals – now nine since …
Tactically Breaking Down Liverpool's Draw At Newcastle

Tactically Breaking Down Liverpool's Draw At Newcastle

Regular readers, you may have noticed that I did not write any tactical pieces for either of Liverpool's games against Leicester City, or the Spartak fixture. Sorry about that, I had some technical issues - nonetheless, I'm back now, and hope to continue with these pieces throughout the season. Like in Liverpool's previous games, against Spartak, Sevilla and Burnley, Liverpool can simply be characterised by poor finishing, and being undone by their own individual errors. Indeed, it's more of the …
Do Liverpool FC Really Lack Leaders?

Do Liverpool FC Really Lack Leaders?

Liverpool doesn’t have any leaders on the pitch… Or so the argument goes lately amongst the club's supporters. But, is that really true. Is leadership what the Reds are lacking? A quick glance at Liverpool’s squad and you’ll notice several players who have been chosen as captains by other managers, other teams, international and club sides. Jordan Henderson isn’t just Liverpool’s captain, he’s England’s captain. Phil Coutinho was selected as Brazil’s captain for the first time over the summer. Gini …
Leicester 2 Liverpool 3 - Tough Wins Are The Best Wins

Leicester 2 Liverpool 3 - Tough Wins Are The Best Wins

A win! A Liverpool win! Three goals beats two goals and the travelling Reds went home happy. The weekend is saved. It wasn’t pleasant. Jurgen’s lads coasted to a two goal cushion and were slowly beginning to realise that Leicester were not quite the reincarnation of the Dirty Dozen they’d previously thought them to be, but come a myopic official and the lads found themselves being dragged down to their level and had to scrap it out. Not a game …
