Is Jurgen Klopp the Enemy of the Football League? Or it's Defender?

Is Jurgen Klopp the Enemy of the Football League? Or it's Defender?

Whether you’re a Liverpool supporter or not, you’ll almost certainly have an opinion on Jurgen Klopp’s comments after (some) of his world champions drew 2-2 against a battling Shrewsbury at New Meadow Stadium. The main talking point from the game was the upcoming replay the Shrews had just valiantly earned themselves in fighting from 2-0 down. Klopp immediately dampened the tone stating, "We will not be there". This was the most cutting line he delivered post-match as he used the …
What If...Henderson wasn't sent-off against Man City?

What If...Henderson wasn't sent-off against Man City?

In the latest in our 'What If?' series, Jordan Henderson's damaging red card against Manchester City is bemoaned by Henry Jackson. Anyone who reads my work or has to suffer through my endless tweets will know that I am a big admirer of Henderson. A player who has been almost ridiculously maligned by some down the years, he has now forged quite a career at Liverpool, captaining the Reds to Champions League glory. Next May, he will hopefully become Liverpool's …
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.

The game will be covered in better detail elsewhere so I …
Do Liverpool Have Another

Do Liverpool Have Another "Best in the World"?

This is the best Liverpool side of the Premier League era. There seems such little controversy in that, yet five years ago, the Reds were in a mire, in freefall after another debilitating second place finish that saw their star striker depart. It was debilitating because there was no recovery, no tactical acumen, no leading light to catch them as they fell. It was during that time, in that season – 14/15 – where the discussion of Liverpool’s midfield woes …

Cup and the Club World Cup, you'll find the *insert sponsor name* Cup. However, as the season enters a key phase for the European Champions you …
A game-by-game mentality: How Liverpool can win the Premier League

A game-by-game mentality: How Liverpool can win the Premier League

To lay everything out on the table from the start, here, any talk of Liverpool having won the Premier League title already this season is absolutely absurd. You can certainly lose the title in the first eight games. But with only 21% of the season completed, there’s no chance you can win it in that time. Last season, the Reds led Manchester City by seven points at the turn of the year, lost just one game all season, accumulated the …
