Imagining A Post Apocalyptic Anfield

Imagining A Post Apocalyptic Anfield

A small drone whizzes down a deserted street. Two mangy dogs face off over possession of a discarded can. The tin echos as it bounces across pavement and concrete. The camera pans up, past the shuddered businesses and grey landscape as a shimmering, modern stadium comes into focus. Post apocalyptic Anfield. Because, no matter what happens to society, football will live on. Right? That is the assumption we're going on at least because if we can't assume Liverpool are coming back to …
Listless In London

Listless In London

After an extremely poor loss away to Watford that ended Liverpool’s chances to set several records in the league this season, Liverpool had a chance to turn the page with a quick turnaround trip to Chelsea in the FA Cup. A win at Stamford Bridge could start to set things right after they had gone terribly wrong since Liverpool returned from a brief winter break. Jurgen Klopp even showed some respect for the FA Cup – take that, haters – …
5 Things Liverpool Should Try Once They've Won the League

5 Things Liverpool Should Try Once They've Won the League

It feels surreal, really, given absolutely no Liverpool fan is willing to actually say the words. You know the ones. The ones in the title of this article. Liverpool. Premier League champions. It all feels like a huge joke, really. Then the numbers hit you. An unassailable lead. Not borne out of logic, but of history: no team has ever had a twenty-two-point lead in Europe’s top five leagues. This Liverpool side are the most feared in the world at …
Mo Salah: Both underappreciated & overprotected?

Mo Salah: Both underappreciated & overprotected?

Contrary to popular belief, Mohamed Salah is much more like Cristiano Ronaldo than Lionel Messi. The Egyptian superstar may possess the latter's gorgeous left foot and low centre of gravity, but there is so much more about him that screams Ronaldo. Away from the grinning face and all-round likeable personality, there is a huge ego where Salah is concerned - he is someone who knows exactly how good he is, precisely how many goals he has scored and is well …
Debunking the Fabinho myth

Debunking the Fabinho myth

A lot has changed for Liverpool over recent seasons. In the past, when a star name was ruled out through injury fans would count down the days until his return. Now, however, talk turns to whether or not they even get back into the team upon their recovery. When Fabinho hobbled off against Napoli, fans feared the Reds would struggle without him. For the first part of the 2019/20 campaign, a case could be made that the former Monaco man …
World-class Gomez showing why fan patience is priceless

World-class Gomez showing why fan patience is priceless

Liverpool's 1-0 win over Everton in the FA Cup has to go down one of the most memorable Merseyside derbies of all time. It may not have been the Premier League, which clearly takes precedence this season, but the nature of the victory was a mixture of hilarious and commendable. For such an inexperienced Liverpool side to overcome their full-strength local rivals was an astonishing effort, when defeat looked on the cards prior to kickoff. While Curtis Jones earned the …

Liverpool 5-2 Everton: A Tactical Breakdown

Liverpool 5-2 Everton: A Tactical Breakdown

The fixtures seem to flash past in a blur. It's hard to imagine how it feels for Jürgen Klopp, given his side barely have time to rest, let alone develop match specific tactics between recovery days and fitness top-up sessions. Rotation is a necessity for Liverpool if they are to get through this utterly chaotic wintery whirlwind of matches. Against Everton, Klopp was exceptionally bold, with five players rotated out, and Origi, Shaqiri and Lallana all brought in for the …
Limp Liverpool Lament Lack of Creativity

Limp Liverpool Lament Lack of Creativity

Liverpool will have most likely have to win their matchday 6 trip to Salzburg in order to top their Champions League after being frustrated 1-1 by Napoli at Anfield tonight. A Dejan Lovren header from a corner equalised an early Dries Mertens strike, but Liverpool produced an atypically meek European home performance and missed a chance to win their group with a match to spare. Jurgen Klopp elected to make three changes from the victory over Crystal Palace, with Alex …
Liverpool are nine points clear of Man City. Now what?

Liverpool are nine points clear of Man City. Now what?

Liverpool are nine points clear of Manchester City and eight points clear at the top of the Premier League going into the November international break. This piece is going to mostly be about where the hell the Reds go from here, and look at some of the maths now that such a lead has been carved out, but first it’s worth a brief reflection of how they got here. The game will be covered in better detail elsewhere so I …
