Why the Reds Should Go All Out for Exceptional Nicolas Pepe

Why the Reds Should Go All Out for Exceptional Nicolas Pepe

There are very few times when a player jumps out at you to such a degree that he becomes magnetic. During season 2017/18, it was clear that amidst Lille’s various struggles, including almost going bankrupt and staying up by the skin of their teeth, they at least had a pillar to tie their hopes to. It wasn’t an irregularity for teams around the lower echelons of the top five leagues; plenty have a single source of hope, deciding to build …
Why is Liverpool so popular in Norway?

Why is Liverpool so popular in Norway?

The United Kingdom and Norway have always had their shared interests in the past, the countries have always been quite close to each other in terms of culture and economic development. In fact, it could be said that Norway is the UK’s best friend in Scandinavia, and will be the best friend in Europe if Brexit happens in the near future. The bridge between these cultures has always been trading and relative proximity to each other. For example, whenever Norwegian …
Why Liverpool can dominate the Champions League

Why Liverpool can dominate the Champions League

The glittering Champions League trophy truly is a thing of beauty, and those scenes in Liverpool, the city centre awash with confetti and consumed by a scarlet hue, were glorious. The club will want a repeat of that iconic bonanza in 12 months time, and they will certainly be keen to prevent anyone else getting their hands on that handsome piece of silverware. Now that they've won it back after 14 years, they'll be intent on keeping it. The squad, …
Adam Lallana - The Last Cruyff Turn

Adam Lallana - The Last Cruyff Turn

We did it! Liverpool Football Club is the champion of Europe. It's been a week now and I still can't get my head around how the club went from embarrassing Steven Gerrard on his farewell tour (losing a combined 2-9 to Crystal Palace and Stoke in his last game at Anfield and his last game for the club, plus the FA Cup exit at the hands of Aston Villa was nothing short of an embarrassment) to last Saturday. The change …
Virgil Van Dijk - Here To Stay

Virgil Van Dijk - Here To Stay

Virgil Van Dijk has been not just one of Liverpool’s best players this season, but one of if not the best player in England. His deserved triumph at the PFA Player of the Year awards, coupled with the fact that he’s now a realistic contender for the Ballon D’Or, means that he is swimming in accolades. It’s incredibly difficult to compare across positions, so let’s just say that he’s the best defender in world football, and almost certainly a top …
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

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?

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. The Champions League final success over Tottenham Hotspur in June could have a lasting effect on the team that could see the club achieve continued success. Bookmakers such as Betway were keen to cut the price on the Anfield club continuing their success by winning the one trophy that has alluded them; the Premier League. The European competition can be a springboard that …
Player Ratings for the Six Time European Cup Winning Reds

Player Ratings for the Six Time European Cup Winning Reds

Told Gags I'd do the ratings regardless of the result, but come on, thank fuck we won. Just back from the parade myself. Did you make it? Not a big surprise if you did, given there were 750,000 fans of the Reds knocking about. Oh, apologies. 750,000 fans of the SIX TIME EUROPEAN CUP WINNING REDS. If you think this is going to be anything other than a cluster of 10's and a love letter to each individual that graced …
