Why Curtis Jones Deserves A New Liverpool Contract

Why Curtis Jones Deserves A New Liverpool Contract

Young Reds midfielder Curtis Jones has become the latest player to commit his long term future to the club. In a season where we will probably be bidding farewell to Naby Keita, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and James Milner, Julian Ward and Jurgen Klopp clearly felt this was an asset that needed securing. A new four and a half year deal has been agreed, and the club has chosen to show faith in this talented academy graduate. Curtis is a player that …
Outstanding Alisson too busy for Liverpool's liking?

Outstanding Alisson too busy for Liverpool's liking?

How many of you make noises during Liverpool games that would be absurd if they happened in any other walk of life? Just me? Sometimes, a moment comes along that produces some sort of wild shriek, such is either the brilliance or the ineptitude of the incident on show. My latest embarrassing squeal took place last weekend, as Liverpool saw off Southampton in a fashion that strangely seemed both commanding and unconvincing at the same time. Granted, the Reds ran …
Southampton (H): What Lessons Did We Learn?

Southampton (H): What Lessons Did We Learn?

The performance proved to be good enough, but the result was all that truly mattered against Southampton on Saturday. In our last game before the World Cup, Liverpool simply couldn’t afford to surrender any further ground in their fight for a top-four finish. Ultimately, the Reds did prevail and in a certain sense, there’s a slight disappointment the break comes at a time when a sense of momentum was being built. However, as yesterday showed there’s plenty still to work …
How well are Liverpool finishing?

How well are Liverpool finishing?

One of the most well-known bits of folk wisdom in football is that if you want to win anything, you must take your chances. Being able to finish well is the mark of an elite goalscorer, and fans groan in frustration when an enthusiastic midfielder shanks a panicked volley miles wide. Although the rise of analytics has somewhat dampened the notion that finishing is the most important part of goalscoring, that doesn’t mean it doesn’t have value. Let’s examine every …
Firmino Contract: Sense not Sentiment

Firmino Contract: Sense not Sentiment

There’s something that the kop wants you to know…Certain myths and tales can outgrow the reality as potentially the hardest personal decision of Jurgen Klopp’s reign approaches. Roberto Firmino will rightly leave Anfield as a legend whenever that time arrives. With January approaching, a player Klopp described as ‘an incredibly important player to me and to us’ will shortly be able to agree pre-contract terms with an overseas club, in a situation which has seen little to no movement in …
Darwin Núñez & His Importance To This Team

Darwin Núñez & His Importance To This Team

I once visited the Amsterdam Arena many many years ago on a youth football trip. We were due to play some games, take advantage of the low drinking age (16 years old back in 1996), and generally have a fun filled trip abroad. The Johan Cruyff Arena is a wonderful venue to visit, and Ajax are a historical European side, much like our own Reds. On Wednesday night Liverpool ran out winners, and for me it was another huge step …
Just how many shots is Darwin Núñez taking?

Just how many shots is Darwin Núñez taking?

Darwin Núñez is currently taking 7.37 shots per 90 in the Premier League. That seems good, right? But just how good is it? Is it sustainable? If it is, what does that mean about his potential goal scoring for Liverpool? And how drunk would you get if you took a shot every time he did during a match? Read on to find out. First, we need to talk about sample size. Darwin has only played 3.8 90s in the PL …
