LIVERPOOL FC 3 - 3 BRIGHTON - THE PLAYER RATINGS

LIVERPOOL FC 3 - 3 BRIGHTON - THE PLAYER RATINGS

Starters: Alisson - 8 Week after week we rely on him, and he does his job. Trossard’s finishing becomes his problem, but for conceding three in a home match, you can’t ask for much more from the Brazilian keeper. Trent - 5 Let's Trossard turn him for the opener, which matches the tone of the season thus far as the world-class right-back continues to be questioned in defensive situations. Looked more positive in attack, and maybe should've been through on …
Is Jude Bellingham worth £130million?

Is Jude Bellingham worth £130million?

Jude Bellingham is the most sought-after player in world football right now. Borussia Dortmund know this and it is no doubt why they now believe the England international is worth in excess of £130million.  If they managed to get such a fee for the box-to-box midfielder, he would be their most expensive export, surpassing the £112million they pocketed for Ousmane Dembele when the Frenchman joined Barcelona in the summer of 2017.  That was a unique deal in many ways. Barca …
Liverpool v Brighton - Give ‘Em Hell

Liverpool v Brighton - Give ‘Em Hell

Liverpool Football Club return to action this weekend, with Premier League high flyers Brighton set to visit Anfield on Saturday afternoon. In such a short period of time, Liverpool have experienced pretty much every emotion possible within the football realm. This weekend represents a much-needed restart, that can carry them forward towards the next international slot, and World Cup break. The month of October needs to be close to perfect, and Klopp will be hoping some returning pieces can help …
Is it Bellingham or bust for Liverpool?

Is it Bellingham or bust for Liverpool?

Liverpool want Jude Bellingham.  Every man and their dog knows this. Throughout the summer months we’ve had journalists describe the type of midfielder the Reds are after in 2023 and it probably would’ve been easier just to mention him by name. It is clear that he is the player they have in mind. Then there is Henry Winter’s bizarre tweet from a few weeks back now when he said something along the lines of he cannot wait to see the …
Trent Alexander Arnold - A World Class Footballer

Trent Alexander Arnold - A World Class Footballer

I read this morning how Trent Alexander-Arnold has been omitted from the England squad for the Germany game. I was neither surprised nor worried by the fact, as a mediocre manager (Gareth Southgate) has clearly settled on other options. Kyle Walker, Reece James & Kieran Tripper are all ahead of Trent in the Three Lions pecking order, and it would be fair to assume that he will not be included in Englands forthcoming World Cup squad. I grew up in …
Which Liverpool Players Should Enter Into The Next Phase

Which Liverpool Players Should Enter Into The Next Phase

It’s international week, and unless it’s a major summer competition, I rarely pay any attention to the results and performances. The games usually revolve around occasions of no consequence, uneven match ups, silly qualification games, and a raft of ever-changing line ups. I checked on Monday to see whether the international break was over, only to learn it hadn’t even started. Liverpool's premature halt in their season has meant a prolonged stop, and it feels longer than the entirety of …
Liverpool must continue to adapt and overcome

Liverpool must continue to adapt and overcome

There’s no doubt about it, this will probably be one of the most atypical seasons in modern football history. Due to the unusual intervention of a World Cup being played in the winter months, the Premier League fixture list is now at its most compact, while the schedule in European competitions is equally compressed. In the midst of what can only be described as a tight fixture list, with games coming thick and fast either side of the World Cup …
How To Replicate The Genius Thiago Brings

How To Replicate The Genius Thiago Brings

Steven Gerrard & Luis Suárez are Liverpool’s most notable legends of the recent past, and were players that were often relied upon to propel their respective team to greatness. Though Luis actually played with Stevie for the entirety of the Uruguayan's Anfield stay, Gerrard was at that point far from the powerhouse he once was. Luis became the talisman of his era, and nearly gifted Stevie the ultimate prize of Premier League glory. Gus Poyet once remarked how Liverpool would …

Liverpool 2 - 1 Ajax - Player Ratings

Liverpool 2 - 1 Ajax - Player Ratings Alisson Becker - 7.0 Great ball for the first goal, and looked assured from the outset. Great distribution and couldn’t do nothing for the opening goal. Had a good steady game. Trent Alexander-Arnold - 7.0 Looked bright & determined from the start. Lost his man for their opening goal, and should have been more alert to stop the through ball. Was good going forward, but still had issues in his defensive duties. …
How This Period Can Recalibrate The Reds

How This Period Can Recalibrate The Reds

I work in mechanical engineering, and it means I often have to use various devices in order to test that which requires inspection. Having been in the industry for close to 25 years, I’m pretty aware when something isn’t quite right, and how to adjust. In order to maintain certain levels, pretty much all instrumentation requires a yearly calibration in order to fine tune the apparatus. An engineers' worth is often graded by his ability to overcome problems (or unearth …
