Why Curtis Jones Deserves A New Liverpool Contract

Young Reds midfielder Curtis Jones has become the latest player to commit his long term future to the club. In a season where we will probably be bidding farewell to Naby Keita, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and James Milner, Julian Ward and Jurgen Klopp clearly felt this was an asset that needed securing. A new four and a half year deal has been agreed, and the club has chosen to show faith in this talented academy graduate. Curtis is a player that …
Outstanding Alisson too busy for Liverpool's liking?

Outstanding Alisson too busy for Liverpool's liking?

How many of you make noises during Liverpool games that would be absurd if they happened in any other walk of life? Just me? Sometimes, a moment comes along that produces some sort of wild shriek, such is either the brilliance or the ineptitude of the incident on show. My latest embarrassing squeal took place last weekend, as Liverpool saw off Southampton in a fashion that strangely seemed both commanding and unconvincing at the same time. Granted, the Reds ran …
How well are Liverpool finishing?

How well are Liverpool finishing?

One of the most well-known bits of folk wisdom in football is that if you want to win anything, you must take your chances. Being able to finish well is the mark of an elite goalscorer, and fans groan in frustration when an enthusiastic midfielder shanks a panicked volley miles wide. Although the rise of analytics has somewhat dampened the notion that finishing is the most important part of goalscoring, that doesn’t mean it doesn’t have value. Let’s examine every …
The Liverpool Crisis: We've Been Here Before

The Liverpool Crisis: We've Been Here Before

It's no secret that the Reds have been on a bit of a dreary start to the 2022-23 campaign. The Premier League season started with 2 points from 3 games, and it hasn't really been much better since than. Liverpool currently sits 9th in the Premier League, with 16 points from 12 games, and 8 points back from the top 4. Although tonight's win against Napoli was a high point in the Champions League, consecutive losses to Leeds and Nottingham …

Just how many shots is Darwin Núñez taking?

Darwin Núñez is currently taking 7.37 shots per 90 in the Premier League. That seems good, right? But just how good is it? Is it sustainable?

The Good, The Bad and The Ugly from Nottingham Forest vs Liverpool

The Good, The Bad and The Ugly from Nottingham Forest vs Liverpool

Another week, another poor Liverpool performance. How has this team fallen so far? From chasing an unprecedented quadruple to losing to the team who entered and ended the weekend bottom of the league. Liverpool lost four matches in all of last season. Four defeats in 63 games. This season couldn't be more different. In just 15 games this season they have already lost four games. In 11 Premier League games, they've now dropped points in seven of them. Last season …
Joe Gomez - An Anfield Career Reborn

Joe Gomez - An Anfield Career Reborn

Through the summer months and until Joe Gomez signed his new Liverpool deal, there was speculation as to whether the gifted defender could be moved on for a substantial fee. With the current stock not incredibly high amongst English defenders, we have seen the likes of Ben White move for £50 million. If you were to consider the skill set and ability of Joe Gomez to that Ben White, then that would surely make Joe Gomez a £40-£50 million player …
