Atletico Madrid v Liverpool - Player Ratings

Alisson Becker - 8.0 Where Caoimhin Kelleher did nothing wrong, Alisson is a world class asset & his authority showed tonight. He brought assurance and dominance into a big match, and that showed. Some crucial saves kept Liverpool in the game on the first half. His ability to smother on coming forwards is the best in world football. Trent Alexander Arnold - 6.0 Defensive awareness mostly on point despite some incisive Madrid attacks, but somewhat limited going forward. Was often …
Is Mohamed Salah the best player in world football?

Is Mohamed Salah the best player in world football?

For the best part of 20 years, Lionel Messi has been the best player in the world. The likes of Luis Suarez, Cristiano Ronaldo, Neymar, Robert Lewandowski and even Gareth Bale have all been in contention for the second-best player in the world title at various times, but they’ve never eclipsed the Argentine maestro, not in my opinion anyway. A few have gotten close, but I can’t recall any of them surpassing the legendary Barcelona forward over an entire 12 …

Is this the best version of Mohamed Salah?

Is this the best version of Mohamed Salah?

Mohamed Salah might be playing the best football of his career right now.  The 29-year-old has eight goals and two assists in eight outings this term. There’s an air of inevitability about him in general. It doesn’t feel as though if he’s going to score, it is more of a matter of when he’s going to score. No matter what happens, it just feels as though he’s going to find the back of the net.  The penalty miss against AC …
Roger Hunt - Forever Remembered

Roger Hunt - Forever Remembered

I’ve chosen to write articles here and there about Liverpool legends from my own youth. It’s often a light hearted look at past brilliance, with a nostalgic and enjoyable tale of a player, once cheered on by the ever changing face of the Kop. As the years roll by, certain heroes that explode from a young age, can be gone in the blink of an eye. Our memories allow moments and players to live on within the Liverpool hearts and …
Curtis Jones, his development and his future for Liverpool

Curtis Jones, his development and his future for Liverpool

Curtis Jones has been a bit of an afterthought this season.  Injured in pre-season, he missed the start of the campaign and then had to settle for a watching brief as Harvey Elliott claimed a midfield position for his own.  He’s made just one start this term and that arrived in the Carabao Cup. For the first half, he was operating as the deepest midfielder with Naby Keita and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain flanking him. It was a new role for him …
Curtis Jones - An Unfortunate Opportunity

Curtis Jones - An Unfortunate Opportunity

Opportunity can be a key instance in any elite form of sport. To be able to take advantage of certain scenarios (in order to achieve personal gain), can make a career in top level football. Patience, readiness, desire and a single-minded determination to succeed can carry one through to greatness, and within this moment, you have to be ready. When Gini Wijnaldum departed this summer, there was an overwhelming sense of loss, given his enormous impact. Names were thrown about, …
Who is Liverpool transfer target Karim Adeyemi?

Who is Liverpool transfer target Karim Adeyemi?

It is becoming increasingly difficult to ignore the noise around Karim Adeyemi.  The 19-year-old was named as a Liverpool target by Transfermarkt recently and it is believed Red Bull Salzburg are willing to cash in on the recently capped Germany international if they receive a bid of €30million.  At first glance, that price tag seems to be a little steep. However, the more you watch him, the quicker you realise you rarely get such a talent for that sort of …
