Understated Robertson continues superb start to the season

Understated Robertson continues superb start to the season

In years and decades to come, Liverpool supporters will look back at this phenomenal team and pick out the poster boys from it, lavishing them with love and praise. Whereas some great teams only have two or three iconic figures to bore future generations to death about, there are endless contenders in this Liverpool side. Virgil van Dijk is a defensive colossus who completely transformed the team when he arrived, with the unrivalled Alisson not too far behind in that …
Analysis: Is the Liverpool press failing?

Analysis: Is the Liverpool press failing?

Liverpool's success since the appointment of Jurgen Klopp has been built around the press. Initially, it was full-throttle, relentless and tiring to watch. But as the team evolved, so did the press. Their approach was more meticulous, their approach was more intelligent and they seemed to take a more measured approach to it all. It made sense. The Reds weren't having to press as often because they now dominated the ball. However, as soon as there was a turnover they'd …
The Evolution of Liverpool FC’s Forward Line in The Premier League Era

The Evolution of Liverpool FC’s Forward Line in The Premier League Era

In these unprecedented times of lockdown, sanitizer, empty stadiums and the Netflix / Amazon Prime binge, I’ve found myself often searching for new ways to occupy both my mind as well as my body. With the remarkable closure to a triumphant league campaign by the reds, the common football fan was greeted by the unique climax to the 2019/20 Champions League. For me, this end period of the European Cup began as a slow burn that ever so gradually sparked …
Will Salah or Mane make way for Sancho next summer?

Will Salah or Mane make way for Sancho next summer?

There was a time when everything Man United did was superior to Liverpool:  winning more trophies, having a better manager and signing world-class players. Thankfully, those days are gone. United's latest humiliation at the hands of Tottenham was great to see - until the Reds lost 7-2 a few hours later, at least - and they continue to show no sign of coming close to repeating their past glories. Their woeful attempt to sign Jadon Sancho from Borussia Dortmund is …
Thiago Return Could Help With Liverpool's Adrian Woes

Thiago Return Could Help With Liverpool's Adrian Woes

Let's face it, with the exceptions of Diogo Jota and Mohamed Salah, no one came out of Liverpool's 7-2 mauling by Aston Villa with their reputations enhanced. Most of the social media scorn, however, has been directed at Adrian. The accident-prone Spanish goalkeeper played an unfortunate role in the first of Villa's avalanche of goals. Although Joe Gomez's positioning and communication could have been better, Adrian sold his team-mate down the river with an under-hit pass to the defender in …
Analysis: Adrian, Alisson and Liverpool goalkeepers

Analysis: Adrian, Alisson and Liverpool goalkeepers

It’s pointless to turn one player into the scapegoat for the 7-2 loss to Aston Villa. The majority of the team had arguably their worst game in a red shirt and it’s a game you just have to take on the chin, safe in the knowledge Jurgen Klopp’s teams always react.  The compilation videos serve no purpose other than to antagonise. They don’t explain or theorise why something might’ve happened and instead just show mistakes and errors.  Adrian has been …
Limp Liverpool Crash Out Of League Cup After Shootout Agony

Limp Liverpool Crash Out Of League Cup After Shootout Agony

Liverpool exited the League Cup at the fifth round stage after a 5-4 penalty shootout defeat to Arsenal at Anfield. A drab and forgetful 90 minutes ended scoreless and the Gunners -- through Joe Willock -- won the shootout after Divock Origi and Harry Wilson missed their spot-kicks. Jurgen Klopp elected to make a raft of changes from the Reds' Premier League victory over the same opponents on Monday night, but Mohamed Salah and Virgil van Dijk -- surprisingly -- …
Thiago Could Have Lessons For Liverpool's Jones

Thiago Could Have Lessons For Liverpool's Jones

For an incalculable number of reasons, the signing of Thiago Alcantara is a huge boost for Liverpool. On the pitch, off the pitch, for dressing room morale and from a marketability viewpoint, the 29-year-old Spaniard could -- and should -- prove an extremely valuable acquisition for the Reds. But perhaps the biggest impact that the former FC Bayern midfield linchpin could have is on the young players in the English Champions' squad, especially the likes of Curtis Jones. Steven Gerrard, …
Thiago and Trent Can Be Liverpool's Pillars of Creativity

Thiago and Trent Can Be Liverpool's Pillars of Creativity

The signing of Thiago Alcantara has sent a jolt of excitement throughout the Liverpool fanbase. And justifiably so, given the £20,000,000 Spaniard is indisputably among the finest midfield players in the world. Making his debut against Chelsea, the newly minted Reds number 6 broke the Premier League passes record in a single half of football with 75 after replacing Jordan Henderson at half-time in the 2-0 win at Stamford Bridge. The preeminent passing prominence on show offered the Liverpool faithful …
Liverpool Advance Thanks To Lincoln Assassination

Liverpool Advance Thanks To Lincoln Assassination

Liverpool will play Arsenal in the fourth round of the League Cup after they thumped Lincoln City 7-2 away. A brace of goals from both Takumi Minamino and Curtis Jones, as well as further strikes from Divock Origi, Marko Grujic, and Xherdan Shaqiri sealed the much-changed Reds' passage into the next round. The game was seen as a shop window for some of Liverpool's fringe players and Shaqiri, in particular, would have done either his prospects of remaining part of …
