Best games of 2019/20: Liverpool 2 - 0 Manchester United

As sport across the world continues to quite rightly take a back-seat, it provides a perfect platform to revel in some of Liverpool's finest moments of the season to date. While it may only provide a small silver lining to what are undoubtedly dark days, there's not a lot better than thinking back to some memorable fixtures in this glittering season so far. Last time, I focused on Liverpool's 0 - 4 Boxing Day bullying of Leicester City, but this …
How Would Luis Suarez Fit Into This Liverpool FC Side?

How Would Luis Suarez Fit Into This Liverpool FC Side?

While it’s practically impossible to improve on the kind of perfection that this Liverpool team has embodied over the last two years...it’s always fun to fantasise, isn’t it? So with that being said, here’s a Liverpool legend that might just fit into the greatest LFC side of our generation Liverpool's electric front three of Sadio Mane, Mohamed Salah and Roberto Firmino have cut a swathe through both English and European football over the past three seasons. In this time frame, …
A Football Club is About More than Just Football

A Football Club is About More than Just Football

There have been so many yearnings for what we no longer have. A platitude of moral dilemmas trying to figure out how much we’re allowed to miss football whilst also framing every such pining with “we know football’s not important in the grand scheme of things.” But, it is, isn’t it? If anything’s been proven over the last week, it’s that football is both immeasurably important and of no consequence whatsoever. It’s allowed to be both of those things at …
Why is Virgil Van Dijk so underrated?

Why is Virgil Van Dijk so underrated?

When does a player become too good that people start to underrate their performances? In Virgil van Dijk’s case, it was almost immediately after he moved to Liverpool. Though he went on to claim the PFA Player of the Year in his first full season at Anfield, many put that down to the hype surrounding him. The fact he was the world’s most expensive defender for a period of time meant all eyes were on him and, to the annoyance …
Why Villa away is Liverpool's biggest win of 2019/20

Why Villa away is Liverpool's biggest win of 2019/20

When Liverpool do eventually win this Premier League title, there will always be moments looked back upon as the most pivotal during the season. For me, the game that stands out more than any other is the trip to Aston Villa in November. This was long before the Reds started building an unfathomable lead over Man City at the top of the table - a time when many still viewed Pep Guardiola's all-conquering side at favourites. On November 2nd, Liverpool …
Liverpool will be crowned Premier League champions

Liverpool will be crowned Premier League champions

Dread it. Run from it. Destiny arrives all the same. For the past week, in footballing circles, talk has centred around whether or not the 2019/20 campaign would be finished. Common sense would suggest a season not yet underway couldn’t take precedence over one that is very near completion. But there’s not much common sense in football.  Rival fans, desperate to ensure Liverpool aren’t crowned champions, have latched onto the idea that this season should be expunged from the history …
Old problems keep coming back to haunt Liverpool

Old problems keep coming back to haunt Liverpool

It was a night that not many Liverpool fans will want to think about for too much longer. It was a humbling and rare defeat at the hands of Diego Simeone's Atletico Madrid that perhaps prematurely ended the Red's defence of their much adored European Cup. While the performance in the first leg in Spain left a lot to be desired in terms of pace and attacking threat, Klopp's men certainly dialled this up to 11 at Anfield and almost …
Tactical Preview: Liverpool vs. Atletico Madrid

Tactical Preview: Liverpool vs. Atletico Madrid

Atletico Madrid’s 1-0 victory at the Wanda Metropolitano heralded the end of Liverpool’s phenomenal winning streak. The performance itself was more concerning than the defeat though, with Liverpool merely creating eight chances (four of which were shots from outside of the box), one Big Chance, but not managing to get a single one of those on target. Liverpool’s 0.6 xG was one of the lowest generated in recent memory. The Atletico Madrid defensive shape was immovable and robust but rarely …

Why Liverpool Should Avoid Cantwell Punt

Why Liverpool Should Avoid Cantwell Punt

Liverpool love a good punt on a player from a relegated side. In three of the last four summer's, the Reds have salvaged some gems from the wreckage of sides destined for the Championship. First, Georginio Wijnaldum and Andrew Robertson -- two players who arrived with relatively inexpensive price-tags and who have now established themselves as key players -- arrived from Newcastle and Hull respectively in the summers of 2016 and 2017. Then in the summer of 2018, Xherdan Shaqiri …
