Why Virgil Van Dijk is better than Sergio Ramos

Why Virgil Van Dijk is better than Sergio Ramos

Twitter can be a strange place. In the past, it was a place to share opinions. Now the majority use it as a platform to ridicule them. Football Twitter has seeped into normal, everyday Twitter. People want to either trigger you or they stick on a mask and start looking for easy retweets and likes for the win. Because of this, and the FUT generation, there's a lot of revisionism. Goalposts are generally moved to suit agendas, arguments or narratives. …
Liverpool Must Improve

Liverpool Must Improve

Absurd title, isn’t it? Allow me to explain... Every Premier League game these days feels like a ‘must win’ for Liverpool Football Club. Such is life when you’re effectively chasing perfection and trying to outdo this Manchester City outfit. The opening five (admittedly kind) league matches have been expertly navigated by Jürgen Klopp, yielding the perfect 15 point return that Liverpool fans dreamed of when the season began. Now though, as summer ebbs away and the Champions League kicks off …
Liverpool 3-1 Newcastle: A Tactical Breakdown

Liverpool 3-1 Newcastle: A Tactical Breakdown

International breaks can often pose a challenge for teams on a winning streak, with an unnecessary interruption to the rhythm of the side. Against Newcastle, for the opening 15-20 minutes at least, it seemed that was the case. Newcastle opted to launch balls into the wide channels, and fight for second balls, but it was an uncharacteristic mistake by the Liverpool defensive line, in an attempt to play Newcastle offside, which was then followed by an individual mistake by Alexander-Arnold, …

Finding the perfect forward to add to the Liverpool squad

Finding the perfect forward to add to the Liverpool squad

Liverpool went into the summer transfer window looking to add attacking reinforcements. Fans wanted it to happen. Journalists mentioned the need for a fourth attacker.  French media linked the Reds with Nicolas Pepe, German press claimed Timo Werner was a target for the European champions while reports in Spain said Philippe Coutinho was set for a return to Merseyside. Yet when the window closed, Jurgen Klopp hadn’t added any attacking reinforcements.  It’s still early days, but the decision not to …
Liverpool look to continue their European form

Liverpool look to continue their European form

Liverpool will bid to reach their third consecutive Champions League final this season and it is hard to see anyone stopping them. The Reds only lost the 2018 final due to a pair of howlers from Loris Karius, and they have been close to invincible since replacing him with £67 million man Alisson. Their home form is superb, the fans create a sensational atmosphere inside Anfield and that really should be enough to carry them all the way again in …
Liverpool's subtle tweak to get the best out of Firmino

Liverpool's subtle tweak to get the best out of Firmino

Liverpool's exceptional start to the season has meant a number of things have gone under the radar. It’s understandable, too. There’s a lot to process with the Reds winning four from four as well as triumphing in the Super Cup.  Roberto Firmino, Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mane have all started in fine form, Trent Alexander-Arnold is chipping in with assists down the right side of the pitch and a comfortable 3-0 win over Burnley shows Jurgen Klopp’s side have the …

Six games, 18 days: The period where Klopp's squad will be acutely assessed

Six games, 18 days. Forget the 100 per cent start to the new league season, this is the period where the bulk of Jurgen Klopp's squad will be put through the wringer. The European champions will barely have an opportunity to breathe once the team are reunited following the international break and the return to club football. Questions were raised over the manager's decision to not dip into the transfer market for fresh ammunition, and this will be the period …
