The What Could Have Been Liverpool XI: The Defence

The What Could Have Been Liverpool XI: The Defence

There have been several players in Liverpool's recent past who have enjoyed the best football of their careers at Anfield and inscribed themselves into the club's history with memorable performances. Steven Gerrard, Jamie Carragher and Fernando Torres -- to name but three -- either spent all of their careers or, in Gerrard's case as good as, with the Reds or -- with Torres as an example -- enjoyed their career-best runs of form in a Liverpool shirt. There have been …
What Makes The Reds So Great Part 2

What Makes The Reds So Great Part 2

Before the worldwide coronavirus pandemic ground the Premier League season to what we are assured is a temporary halt, Liverpool looked set to win the league title at a canter. Winning 27 out of their 29 games, the Reds — who have beaten every other team in the league on their remarkable run — find themselves a full 25 points ahead of second-place Manchester City and, mathematically, only need two more wins to claim the clubs’ 19th league success and …
Why hasn't Divock Origi kicked on from Madrid - and is Klopp to blame?

Why hasn't Divock Origi kicked on from Madrid - and is Klopp to blame?

Not only did Divock Origi's goal in the Champions League final reaffirm Liverpool's status as European royalty it also provided the impetus for this season's title bid. However, one person the goal seems to have had the least impact on is the man who actually provided that moment of magic in Madrid. There's no doubting Origi will be remembered extremely fondly by Reds' fans having scored a countless number of important goals, but, you can't help but feel he hasn't …
How Would Coutinho Fit Into This Liverpool FC Side?

Amidst the lockdown lull, AI's Sam McGuire put the following proposition to the AI Writer's team, "Where would Liverpool legends from the Premier League era fit into this current team?". Articles …
Why Villa away is Liverpool's biggest win of 2019/20

Why Villa away is Liverpool's biggest win of 2019/20

When Liverpool do eventually win this Premier League title, there will always be moments looked back upon as the most pivotal during the season. For me, the game that stands out more than any other is the trip to Aston Villa in November. This was long before the Reds started building an unfathomable lead over Man City at the top of the table - a time when many still viewed Pep Guardiola's all-conquering side at favourites. On November 2nd, Liverpool …
Why Mohamed Salah looks back to his best for Liverpool

Why Mohamed Salah looks back to his best for Liverpool

Watching Mohamed Salah’s performances over recent weeks as a Liverpool fan has been frustrating. Against Red Bull Salzburg, the Egyptian forward managed to miss countless chances before finally putting the ball into the back of the net from an utterly ridiculous angle on his weaker foot.  He followed that showing up with what was at times a sloppy performance against Watford. Yet he finished the watch against the Hornets with two goals, both as equally as good as other and …
Liverpool 2-1 Spurs: A Tactical Breakdown

Liverpool 2-1 Spurs: A Tactical Breakdown

Despite the scoreline displaying a marginal difference, custom to a penalty, this was one of Liverpool's finest performances of the season, and the perfect follow-up to the dull, drab and wasted opportunity that was the Manchester United game. Displaying patience, breathtaking intensity and consistency, Liverpool dominated from the moment the first goal went in, and for the 75 odd minutes that preceded it. This not just a mature and organised performance, it was utterly brilliant, a display of composure and …

Indispensable but under-rotated - Liverpool's flying full-backs

Indispensable but under-rotated - Liverpool's flying full-backs

If ever there was a goal to highlight how influential Liverpool's full-backs are on the team, the Reds' second goal against RB Salzburg was exactly that. From Andy Robertson stepping into midfield to the ball being transferred to the opposite side of the pitch for Trent Alexander-Arnold to find his on-running full-back partner with a delightful low cross. It was an exceptional goal from two unbelievably talented full-backs. The levels both of them have been performing at for more than …
