Greatness Beckons for Player of the Year Van Dijk

Greatness Beckons for Player of the Year Van Dijk

For just the fourth time in 40 years, a centre-back has been named PFA Player of the Year, and he couldn't be a more worthy winner. Joining Gary Pallister, Paul McGrath and John Terry is Virgil van Dijk, following a season unlike many ever seen by a defender at Liverpool. When gushing over a player in the present, it is easy to get carried away and start rating him higher than his actual level merits. I loved Daniel Agger, but …

No More Conservative Midfields for Liverpool

No More Conservative Midfields for Liverpool

This title race is killing you, admit it. All the times Liverpool were buried in sixth, meagre and irrelevant seem like the golden days of old compared to the ninety-minute-long heart attack Liverpool fans are forced to endure on a weekly – sometimes bi-weekly – basis. Bring Hodgson back, for God’s sake. Seeing as that’s unlikely, and seeing as Liverpool are firmly stuck in a title race in which they have to make up the ground, the nerves have manifested …
Durability A Key Factor In Liverpool's Success

Durability A Key Factor In Liverpool's Success

When you look at Liverpool’s success so far this season, one of the key reasons that the team has played consistently well is the lack of injuries to key players. Joe Gomez and Trent Alexander-Arnold aside, of Liverpool’s main starting XI (or starting X plus one if we’re being fair), nobody has picked up anything more than a minor niggle this season.
