Former Red with FIFA Club World Cup experience hopes Klopp's side go one better

Former Liverpool striker Florent Sinama-Pongolle believes the FIFA Club World Cup will still "mean a lot" to this Reds squad despite its timing and location. Sinama-Pongolle will always be remembered for playing his part in Liverpool's comeback victory over Olympiakos at Anfield in December 2004. That win took Rafa Benitez's side out of the group stages and on their way to glory in Istanbul. A year after that night at Anfield, Sinama-Pongolle travelled with the squad to Japan for the …
Do Liverpool Have Another

Do Liverpool Have Another "Best in the World"?

This is the best Liverpool side of the Premier League era. There seems such little controversy in that, yet five years ago, the Reds were in a mire, in freefall after another debilitating second place finish that saw their star striker depart. It was debilitating because there was no recovery, no tactical acumen, no leading light to catch them as they fell. It was during that time, in that season – 14/15 – where the discussion of Liverpool’s midfield woes …

Liverpool 3-1 Manchester City: Observations as Reds overpower title rivals

Liverpool 3-1 Manchester City: Observations as Reds overpower title rivals

It may only be November, but still this has the air of a season-defining victory for title-chasing Liverpool. They lead Manchester City by nine points, and though there remain 26 games before season's end, the sheer relentlessness of the Red machine makes the present deficit look rather bleak for the reigning champions. Pep Guardiola's men played well at Anfield, but ultimately Liverpool just had too much for them. Pre-match fears for City defence realised When the teams were announced, you …
Liverpool 3-1 Manchester City: Who Was Man of the Match?

Liverpool 3-1 Manchester City: Who Was Man of the Match?

What a win that is. Absolutely delightful to get another one over the cardigan-clad crybaby and put us a monstrous 9 points clear of City and 8 points clear at the top of the table. We were extraordinarily clinical when the chances and half-chances fell our way, while the Sky Blues couldn’t do enough to break us down more than once. All the talk will be about VAR as usual but pay no heed to that rubbish – every major …

Stop And Smell The Roses - A Look Ahead To Liverpool v Man City

Stop And Smell The Roses - A Look Ahead To Liverpool v Man City

Here we are, on the precipice of the most important match ever in the history of football since 1992, the dawn of time (historical accuracy brought to you by Sky Sports, Sky Bet and Gary Neville’s pompous sense of self-importance)....... AND IT’S LIVE. The Reds, a crack commando unit, sent to play two games within 24 hours on two separate continents for a crime Sadio Mane didn’t commit. These men promptly escaped from a maximum-security two fixture prison by “lashing …
Marko Grujic vs Denis Zakaria - who suits the Liverpool midfield?

Marko Grujic vs Denis Zakaria - who suits the Liverpool midfield?

Liverpool’s midfield is a divisive topic, but one thing most fans can agree on is that reinforcements will soon be needed. Jordan Henderson is 30 at the end of the current campaign, Gini Wijnaldum turns 29 this month, James Milner is 34 in January and Adam Lallana is 32 in May.  Of the current crop of midfielders, only Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, Fabinho and Naby Keita are closer to 25 than they are 30, and two of those have had injury troubles.  …
