Let's not go overboard about Liverpool's 'crisis'

Let's not go overboard about Liverpool's 'crisis'

Forget the coronavirus threatening to end civilisation as we know it, Liverpool's last two games have seemingly caused the end of the world instead. It was all going so swimmingly before the Reds turned up to Watford last weekend - it was a happier time when supporters weren't bickering, wins were inevitable and anything seemed possible. Doesn't it feel like a lifetime ago now? From nowhere, Liverpool's season has veered off the track, with Watford and Chelsea delivering rare defeats …

Anfield's magic showcased again as Liverpool find another way to win

Anfield's magic showcased again as Liverpool find another way to win

What a night. We've had a few of those now, haven't we? Maybe none like this though. Liverpool 1-0 Shrewsbury Town in an FA Cup fourth round replay isn't exactly a headline score when taken out of context, but oh the context involved in this one is quite something. A Liverpool team where the oldest player was 22, with 19-year-old Curtis Jones the youngest captain in Liverpool's history. Against a League One side full of grown men, looking to seize …
Liverpool 1-0 Wolves: A Tactical Breakdown

Liverpool 1-0 Wolves: A Tactical Breakdown

"This was a marvellous tactical battle, but for Nuno Espirito Santo, despite his best efforts, couldn’t quite deliver a surprise in morphing into Nuno Espirito Santa(!!!), but with Liverpool, rather unexpectedly, now four points clear of Manchester City, it seems Christmas may just have come early…" - Wolverhampton 0-2 Liverpool: A Tactical Breakdown, 23/12/2018
It's remarkable how much, and at the same time, how little has changed in just over a year. Indeed, given Wolves' comeback against Manchester …
Back-To-Goal Salah Offers Liverpool New Attacking Dimension

Back-To-Goal Salah Offers Liverpool New Attacking Dimension

Mohamed Salah is back. After a few weeks of relatively low-key performances while clearly playing through an ankle injury, the Egyptian has burst back into form and has netted goals in games versus Watford (x2), Bournemouth and Red Bull Salzburg. The most striking feature of Salah's game in recent weeks, though, is how well the forward has linked the play, in the style of a burly old school centre forward. Standing at 5'9, the former Roma flyer is not the …
Mohamed Salah and His Right Foot

Mohamed Salah and His Right Foot

Mohamed Salah is a goalscorer supreme, he’s explosively quick and he’s creatively a force of nature. But he doesn’t have a right foot.  To begin with, it wasn’t a problem. Teams couldn’t deal with the curly-haired, fleet-footed Egyptian and he’d find a way to wriggle back onto his favoured left foot when it mattered most. His debut season with the Reds saw him break a Premier League record with 32 goals from 36 appearances.  He followed that up with another …
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 …
How Much Can Klopp's Liverpool Win?

How Much Can Klopp's Liverpool Win?

For a lot of Liverpool fans, it feels like waiting for the other shoe to drop. 16 wins out of 17 in the Premier League and topping their Champions’ League group, the Reds have suffered just one defeat across those two competitions, and ahead of the Club World Cup in Qatar, leave the Premier League with a 10 point lead, and their closest rivals – Manchester City and Leicester – play each other before the Reds’ return. The questions have …
Bournemouth 0-3 Liverpool: A Tactical Breakdown

Bournemouth 0-3 Liverpool: A Tactical Breakdown

Ho Ho Ho. Christmas has come early. Liverpool are finally back at their attacking best. Now, with eight goals in two games, and both Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mané in searingly hot form, it seems Liverpool have their attacking mojo back. This is seriously ominous news for the rest of the league, given Liverpool had only dropped two points without even hitting their stride. Whilst Liverpool's results over the opening fourteen league games was two points away from being perfect, …
