How James Milner became an unexpected Liverpool hero

How James Milner became an unexpected Liverpool hero

This week marked the five year anniversary of James Milner's arrival at Liverpool, making the switch from Manchester City on a free transfer. After weeks of speculation as to where the Yorkshireman would end up, it was former boss Brendan Rodgers who managed to persuade Milner to choose Anfield over any other potential destination. While securing Millie's services was seen as a brilliant piece of business, especially on a free deal, there was no way of knowing just how much …
Should Liverpool be interested in Diego Carlos?

Should Liverpool be interested in Diego Carlos?

Liverpool were on pace to break the record for most points in a single Premier League campaign before football was paused. Remarkably, the Reds had won 93% of their matches in the English top-flight this term. For a bit of context, the Manchester City centurions, regarded by many to be one of the best sides ever, won 84% of their games.  It highlights just how incredible this Liverpool side is. Upgrading any area isn’t easy but with football perpetually evolving, …
What Makes The Reds So Great - Part 1

What Makes The Reds So Great - Part 1

Before the worldwide coronavirus pandemic ground the Premier League season to what we are assured is a temporary halt, Liverpool looked set to win the league title at a canter. Winning 27 out of their 29 games, the Reds -- who have beaten every other team in the league on their remarkable run -- find themselves a full 25 points ahead of second-place Manchester City and, mathematically, only need two more wins to claim the clubs’ 19th league success and …
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. 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 …
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 …
Liverpool's Virgil van Dijk insists Reds must remain focused between now and May

Liverpool's Virgil van Dijk insists Reds must remain focused between now and May

Liverpool's number 4, Virgil van Dijk, says The Reds are happy with their win over Manchester City but must remain completely focused with some hectic months ahead. Speaking less than 24 hours after the win at Anfield, Van Dijk told Liverpoolfc.com that Sunday's 3-1 victory did feel a "bit special".
“It's like any other three points of course but it was a bit special because you are playing against the champions, your direct rival, and I think it was a …
