How Virgil van Dijk Justified £75m Liverpool Transfer

How Virgil van Dijk Justified £75m Liverpool Transfer

Eighteen months ago, Liverpool made the unpopular decision of making the former Southampton defender one of the most expensive transfers ever, as reported by Skysports. It was logical that what followed was huge media coverage of the Dutchman’s performance. A year and a half later, £75m has never been so cheap. Since he joined the Reds, van Dijk has cemented a starting place in the team and has become the favourite of many Liverpool fans and football neutrals alike. With …
Liverpool FC: From 4-1 Humiliation To Champions Of Europe

Liverpool FC: From 4-1 Humiliation To Champions Of Europe

Define ignominious: Liverpool's 4-1 defeat away to Tottenham in October 2017. That dank autumn afternoon was Jurgen Klopp's nadir as Reds manager, at a time when the first few doubts were creeping on about this most charismatic of men. While he wasn't under the kind of pressure many managers find themselves under at low points, frustration was clear and the German was in a rare fragile position. The loss at Wembley left Liverpool sitting ninth in the Premier League, with …

Klopp Enters The Pantheon Of Liverpool Greats

What a night. Liverpool are the Champions of Europe for the 6th time, following a hard-fought, stoically defensive 2-0 win over Spurs. This is a night that will go down in the history of the club, and a night that finally breaks Jürgen Klopp’s duck as Liverpool manager, winning his first trophy for the club. There have been several seminal moments in Klopp’s tenure. I’ve spoken before (including at the time) about Liverpool’s 4-1 defeat to Spurs as a pivotal …

Should Liverpool Be Premier League Favourites Following Champions League Success?

Jurgen Klopp has finally broken his trophy hoodoo at Liverpool, and the sky is now the limit.

Champions League Final 2018/19

Champions League Final 2018/19

This will be the second season in a row that Liverpool play in the Champions League final and one difference from last season is the overwhelming sense of confidence that they will go on to lift the trophy. There was excitement at reaching the final against Madrid last season, but this time the feeling is that this team is just too good to end the season without a trophy. Liverpool go into the final as the favourites among most people …
No Ticket? Where to Watch In Madrid: Final TV Tips for Reds’ Eyes Only

No Ticket? Where to Watch In Madrid: Final TV Tips for Reds’ Eyes Only

Madrid is my city. I’ve lived here for four years after a combination of circumstances allowed my wife and I to choose essentially anywhere to live. There's no better place for a weekend at this time of year. Unfortunately, there is a bit of panic setting in about what Reds can expect when they descend on the Spanish capital in their thousands. I'm more than a little worried as well if I'm honest. I’ll get into those concerns and they …

Understat's xPoints model has Liverpool on 83.45 points, whereas City is on 90.64. This disparity, far greater than the actual points difference is the product of all the chances faced and created, by both sides, simulated …

Liverpool wants £37m-rated as Coutinho replacement

Bayern Munich will not be signing James Rodriguez for £37million this summer and reports from the Mirror claims that Liverpool want the Colombia international as a Philippe Coutinho replacement. Coutinho left Liverpool in January 2018 and while Xherdan Shaqiri was signed as a direct replacement to the Brazilian, the former Stoke City ace isn't on the same level as Coutinho. Liverpool haven't signed and lack a natural No. 10 since Coutinho joined Barcelona but the club did come close to …
