Changes changes Every football fan has seen it before. A new manager comes in and, in most cases, wants to spark some changes in the team. For Klopp, those changes were all highly anticipated. Supporters were referencing gegenpressing and heavy-metal football, and how much better, or at least different, it would …
Big Time Liverpool Continue To Defy The Doubters

Big Time Liverpool Continue To Defy The Doubters

Liverpool continued their resurgence towards the top of Europe’s elite with an incredible 3-1 win at the Allianz Arena over a Bayern Munich side that were never allowed to get going. And what for me, is potentially interesting about the victory is how low-key some of the celebration and conversation is at the moment – especially compared to say Manchester United vs PSG. Obviously, Liverpool didn’t have to come back from two goals down, given how comprehensively they shut Bayern …

Observations as Liverpool Show Tenacity to Dismiss Talk of Losing Their Bottle

Liverpool ensured they remain hot on the tails of title rivals Manchester City with a 4-2 win against Burnley on Sunday afternoon. Despite the blistering conditions, the wind wouldn’t impede Jurgen Klopp’s side this time out, with braces from Sadio Mané and Roberto Firmino enough to overturn the early deficit.

The second half, in particular, was a bit of a cause for concern as the Reds struggled to make much of an impact on the game, and Klopp's substitutions certainly raised a few eyebrows.

Alisson: A Man For The Moment

Alisson: A Man For The Moment

Football is a game defined by moments. There can be several, such as Gini Wijnaldum’s thunderous chip against Bournemouth, later followed up by a wonderfully worked team move, or there can be just one. A singular strike, a fortuitous deflection, a last-gasp penalty. Moments that define games. Alisson’s save to deny Jesse Lingard on Sunday was exactly that.
