How Klopp Has Made a Weapon of Versatility

How Klopp Has Made a Weapon of Versatility

“He is a brilliant player and I am happy that he can play…he has a defending brain and can do it in different positions, it’s good.”
Klopp said of Fabinho following his impressive performance at centre back against Brighton. It was a performance emblematic of Klopp’s plans coming to fruition. Indeed, if the Reds’ title challenge shows anything, it’s that long-term planning, with the right investment and right appointments, works. Philosophies, they work too. A sense of the …
Liverpool's Defence Is More Than VVD and Alisson

Liverpool's Defence Is More Than VVD and Alisson

It’s true that Virgil Van Dijk is the best centre-back in the league. It’s true that his impact on this Liverpool team has been absolutely tremendous, and it’s true that his signing is one of the best that Liverpool have made in years. Likewise, it’s true that buying Alisson Becker was an absolutely crucial piece of the puzzle. Alisson has magnified the issues that Liverpool’s previous keepers have made, immediately established himself as one of the league’s top shot-stoppers and …

Liverpool v Crystal Palace Preview - Reds should restore seven-point lead at top

The Details Venue - Anfield, Liverpool Referee - Jonathan Moss Date & Time - Saturday, January 19th @ 15:00 Current Odds - Liverpool 4/25, Draw 13/2, Arsenal 12/1 Form Liverpool Form Jurgen Klopp's Liverpool got back to winning ways last Saturday at Brighton. Mohamed Salah was the hero, scoring the only goal of the game after winning the penalty himself, drawing Pascal Gross into a clumsy challenge in the box. Klopp hailed Liverpool's win at Brighton as one of the team's 'most mature' performances …
Why Judging Mané and Firmino By Goals Scored is Foolish

Why Judging Mané and Firmino By Goals Scored is Foolish

While Mohamed Salah once again stole all of the headlines in Liverpool's latest win over Brighton at the Amex Stadium at the weekend, it can be quite easy for criticism to be drawn to his attacking colleagues as to their contributions to goals this season. Jürgen Klopp's revered front three draw plaudits the world over last season for their dazzling displays both domestically and in Europe, as the Reds plundered goals for fun and amassed 47 goals in the Champions …
Commander Klopp

Commander Klopp

A mild wind blows through the open roof, seagulls squawking high above as the distant sea air fills the nostrils. Sprinklers twist and turn, sending water spritzing in dancing circles. Neatly trimmed grass clipped and groomed to perfection. The netting rustling as it is tightened on opposite ends. A pristine field. The perfect place for battle. One hundred and one meters long by 68 meters wide. An arena for gladiators to showcase their best; to reach for the stars and etch …
Should Liverpool keep Daniel Sturridge?

Should Liverpool keep Daniel Sturridge?

The striker’s contract is due to expire in the summer. Many fans are divided on whether to offer Daniel Sturridge a new contract or let him go for free. So, what shall it be? The England international has been at Liverpool for six years this month since January 2013. Yes, he has been injury prone, but he has also had some fine moments for the club. If you cast your mind back to his debut for Liverpool in the FA …
Conservative Reds Show Substance Over Style

Conservative Reds Show Substance Over Style

There was a moment in the first half of Liverpool’s 1-0 win over Brighton where Gini Wijnaldum picked the ball up 20/25 yards from goal, assessed his options, passed the ball sideways to Jordan Henderson, who promptly gave the ball back to Wijnaldum, only for Gini to turn around and pass the ball 40 yards backwards to Fabinho. My groan was audible. It was that sort of game. This article isn’t necessarily going to be a defence of that moment, …
Liverpool Fans - It's Okay to Hope, This is Why We're Here

Liverpool Fans - It's Okay to Hope, This is Why We're Here

It’s not the hope that kills you. It’s never the hope that kills you. Languishing in mediocrity, having to play in Macedonia on a miserly Thursday night, with aspirations of only being relevant again, that’s what kills you. Being nowhere, existing but not prospering, that’s what kills you. Seeing your best players leave, that’s what kills you. Replacing them with players who can’t possibly fill the void, at the behest of a faulty transfer strategy and wildly obscene ego of …
