Liverpool confirm title credentials with City blockbuster approaching

Liverpool confirm title credentials with City blockbuster approaching

The victory against Spurs was a much-needed riposte after the disappointing performance at Old Trafford two weekends ago. Liverpool stepped up to their mantle as mentality monsters; overcoming a poor start to comfortably dispatch a notoriously tricky rival in Spurs. A massive and much-needed win to maintain 6 points’ daylight between Klopp’s side and City. Recent fixtures against Spurs have been slightly turgid affairs. However, on Sunday, Liverpool’s tenacity allied with potent attacking flair, came out in full force. Alexander …

The Final Word on Liverpool FC v New Balance

Do you struggle with kit deal envy?  Do you find yourself comparing complex numbers with strangers on Twitter even though you took five art electives at University in order to side-step the calculus requirement? Well this article might be right for you. Liverpool found themselves in court last week fighting for the right to sign a deal with guaranteed revenue roughly equivalent to the deal that they are already on. Outrage! Clearly the Liverpool brass have been on a non-stop …

Four wonderful years of Jurgen Klopp at Liverpool

Four wonderful years of Jurgen Klopp at Liverpool

People often say that you remember exactly where you were when huge moments in history occurred. I'll never forget hearing about the terrorist attack on the World Trade Center on the bus home from school, for example, or seeing a kids TV show interrupted in order to inform me of the death of Princess Diana. I must immediately stress that I don't put the arrival of a Liverpool manager on a par with those events mentioned above, in terms of …
100% Liverpool Writing Their Own Script

100% Liverpool Writing Their Own Script

Liverpool notched their 8th straight Premier League win of the season, their 17th in a row total and moved eight points clear at the top of the league with a late penalty against Leicester. There was a sense of palatable relief as James Milner stepped up in the 95th minute to down Leicester and give Liverpool the three points. It was not a day where Liverpool deserved to drop points, but it increasingly looked like a day where they would. …
Is Roberto Firmino world class?

Is Roberto Firmino world class?

Very few players in world football have positions named after them. Only a handful do and they're usually individuals who transformed that role. Andrea Pirlo wasn't the first playmaker to be deployed in the defensive midfield role but he certainly enjoyed the most success there and that quarterback position was soon christened the Pirlo role. Philipp Lahm probably wasn't the first inverted full-back but he was the most memorable. Without him, it's unlikely we ever get to see Trent Alexander-Arnold …
What's going on with Xherdan Shaqiri?

What's going on with Xherdan Shaqiri?

Many thought he was almost certain to start against Fulham on Sunday, but when Adam Lallana was included in Klopp's starting XI, the recent whispers around what is going on with Xherdan Shaqiri grew just that little bit louder. The Alpine Messi was not so long ago enjoying his best spell since joining Liverpool in the summer, scoring six goals and providing two assists in 11 games over the winter period, but his form then seemed to drop and his …
Klopp's PlayStation Midfield

Klopp's PlayStation Midfield

You know, I’d already got this article in my brain long before I saw this tweet from Michael Caley, the brain behind Caley Graphics xG maps. Caley is a brilliant football analyst and the insight that he offers in this tweet backs up other data that I’ve seen in other places, but the simple fact is as follows. Nevertheless, before I get into some of that data, I want to outline the point of this article. Klopp has been tinkering …
James Milner believes Reds have to be able to break every team down

James Milner believes Reds have to be able to break every team down

Liverpool's James Milner believes their 0-0 draw at Manchester United on Sunday highlighted another glaring issue for The Reds that they must overcome. Liverpool controlled the game at Old Trafford with 65% of the possession but, worryingly, they were not able to make that domination count when it came to creating chances. The Reds only managed one shot on goal on a day where David De Gea surely would have expected to be far busier than he was. The vastly …
