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 …
Chelsea 0-2 Liverpool: Key stats from an imposing victory

Chelsea 0-2 Liverpool: Key stats from an imposing victory

Liverpool capped off a glorious weekend with a commanding triumph against potential title rivals Chelsea at Stamford Bridge, maintaining their 100% start to the season. Here are some of the standout facts and figures from a key early win against Frank Lampard's 10 men. Outstanding Fabinho unruffled at centre-half Back in February 2019, Virgil van Dijk's suspension and Joe Gomez's injury forced Fabinho to slot-in as a centre-half when Bayern Munich visited Anfield. He was up against Robert Lewandowski and, …
Thiago signs, so what's Liverpool's best midfield now?

Thiago signs, so what's Liverpool's best midfield now?

It's the news we've all been waiting for. Thiago Alcantara is finally on his way to Merseyside to complete a highly anticipated switch from Bayern Munich. The 29-year-old Spanish maestro has long been linked with Liverpool over the summer transfer window and now, after seemingly reaching an impasse, a deal has been struck between the two clubs. Liverpool fans are rightly excited about seeing Thiago don his favoured number six shirt in Klopp's team, and he will undoubtedly bring him …
Is Trent Alexander-Arnold a generational talent?

Is Trent Alexander-Arnold a generational talent?

Remember a few years back when Trent Alexander-Arnold had that one bad game against Manchester United? It’s the reason rival fans say the Liverpool right-back isn’t a good defender. Marcus Rashford netted twice and, if we’re being completely honest, Alexander-Arnold was flat-footed for the opener.  By no means was it entirely his fault but rivals fans needed something to latch onto and this was it. Since that day, he’s been labelled as a defensive risk. People choose to ignore his …
What makes Sadio Mane so special?

What makes Sadio Mane so special?

Sadio Mane is often overlooked. It’s not purposefully done and there’s nothing malicious in it, it’s just one of the downsides of playing in the best team in the world. Mohamed Salah’s ridiculous goal return sees him take centre stage more often than not. Virgil van Dijk is Virgil van Dijk. Alisson makes a monumental difference to the team so is regularly singled out while Jordan Henderson is now getting plenty of plaudits having lifted four trophies over a 12 …
Liverpool are the Champions - July 2020, The Month That Was

Liverpool are the Champions - July 2020, The Month That Was

In the middle of the strangest year many of us will ever live through came a bright spot as Liverpool Football Club finally ended their 30 year wait for the league title. The title had been confirmed on the night of June 25th, when Manchester City lost at home to Chelsea but the Reds had to wait almost an entire month to get their hands on the trophy. The month had started badly on the pitch, a 4-0 thumping away …
