Milner: Liverpool's Cultural Architect

Milner: Liverpool's Cultural Architect

The youngest team in the history of Liverpool Football Club qualified for the fifth round of the F.A. Cup with a 1-0 victory over Shrewsbury at Anfield last night. While youngsters such as Harvey Elliott, Neco Williams and Curtis Jones -- who, at 19 years old, became the youngest captain in the club's history -- received much of the plaudits for their on field contributions, the first team squads elder statesman had a role to play in the victory, too. …
Liverpool Make World-Class Stars

Liverpool Make World-Class Stars

Jamie Carragher is right, Liverpool don’t tend to buy superstars. Speaking after the 1-0 win over Spurs, the former Reds centre-back heaped praise on Jurgen Klopp and the recruitment team at Anfield.  "It's not that Liverpool are just buying players with this special ability that nobody else sees these players," Carragher told Sky Sports. "[Andy] Robertson came from Hull City, [Gini] Wijnaldum was relegated with Newcastle United, Mohamed Salah had been at Chelsea, Sadio Mane had been in the Premier …
Mohamed Salah and His Right Foot

Mohamed Salah and His Right Foot

Mohamed Salah is a goalscorer supreme, he’s explosively quick and he’s creatively a force of nature. But he doesn’t have a right foot.  To begin with, it wasn’t a problem. Teams couldn’t deal with the curly-haired, fleet-footed Egyptian and he’d find a way to wriggle back onto his favoured left foot when it mattered most. His debut season with the Reds saw him break a Premier League record with 32 goals from 36 appearances.  He followed that up with another …
Why Mohamed Salah looks back to his best for Liverpool

Why Mohamed Salah looks back to his best for Liverpool

Watching Mohamed Salah’s performances over recent weeks as a Liverpool fan has been frustrating. Against Red Bull Salzburg, the Egyptian forward managed to miss countless chances before finally putting the ball into the back of the net from an utterly ridiculous angle on his weaker foot.  He followed that showing up with what was at times a sloppy performance against Watford. Yet he finished the watch against the Hornets with two goals, both as equally as good as other and …
Keita Provides Liverpool Timely Reminder

Keita Provides Liverpool Timely Reminder

Let's face it, if we're calling a spade a spade, Naby Keita has not lived up to his billing since his highly publicised move from Red Bull Leipzig. The midfielder failing as yet to be the potential superstar prophesied by many familiar with the Bundesliga is not black and white, however; there is a large area grey area of nuance to consider when assessing his time at Anfield so far. The real stumbling block for Keita has been injuries and …

Crystal Palace 1-2 Liverpool: A Tactical Breakdown

Crystal Palace 1-2 Liverpool: A Tactical Breakdown

It’s another win for Jürgen Klopp’s seemingly unstoppable behemoth. Despite Mohamed Salah only fit enough to start from the bench, Liverpool managed to secure another three points, taking their total to 37 points, from a possible 39. The old adage about winning when not playing well has certainly seemed relevant to Liverpool since the start of the season, but Liverpool are close to riding out their luck. Despite winning 12 of their opening 13 league fixtures, Liverpool have been underwhelming …
Liverpool 3-1 Manchester City: A Tactical Breakdown

Liverpool 3-1 Manchester City: A Tactical Breakdown

When the fixture list was announced, all eyes immediately scanned for one fixture: Liverpool vs. Manchester City. Last season, the fixture at the Etihad provided some of the most breathtaking, tactically stimulating and utterly brilliant football England has ever seen. It was a credit to football and to sport. This time, the Anfield leg offered Liverpool the opportunity to go nine points clear of their rivals, in November. Titles cannot be won in November, but they can be lost. Whether …
Liverpool 2-1 Spurs: A Tactical Breakdown

Liverpool 2-1 Spurs: A Tactical Breakdown

Despite the scoreline displaying a marginal difference, custom to a penalty, this was one of Liverpool's finest performances of the season, and the perfect follow-up to the dull, drab and wasted opportunity that was the Manchester United game. Displaying patience, breathtaking intensity and consistency, Liverpool dominated from the moment the first goal went in, and for the 75 odd minutes that preceded it. This not just a mature and organised performance, it was utterly brilliant, a display of composure and …
