Observations: Against Benfica, the real Naby Keita stood up

Observations: Against Benfica, the real Naby Keita stood up

In a recent interview, Naby Keita said 'I don't believe we've seen the real Naby Keita just yet. I've had quite a few injuries & I'm trying to get back to full form & fitness. Recently I've felt 100%. It's my aim to try and establish myself and be seen in the world of football either this season or the next.' Well Naby lad, if you wanted to be seen, then tonight you did everything right to make it happen. …
Post-Match RAW: Nervy Win Over Impressive West Ham

Post-Match RAW: Nervy Win Over Impressive West Ham

David Moyes taken a lot of criticism from Liverpool fans over the years - most of it absolutely justified because of his absurdly bad record against the Reds. That has started to change though, and once again, probably with valid reasons because he has done an excellent job at West Ham since returning as manager. And, on Saturday evening, his team once again caused Klopp's Liverpool a number of problems, thankfully, they managed to solve them and finish with the …
Luis Diaz - A South American Dream

Luis Diaz - A South American Dream

The transfer of one Luis Diaz to Liverpool, happened almost as quickly as Kaiser Soze disappeared. Tottenham were in talks, apparently West Ham had interest, and even Manchester United were keeping tabs, and just like that, he was here. With only a month gone since the window closed, it’s a magnificent first chapter in the Columbian's early Liverpool career. With a string of brilliant moments and performances, it very much looks like the Michael Edwards transfer team has struck gold …
Observations: Liverpool 3-1 Norwich - What a difference a day makes

Observations: Liverpool 3-1 Norwich - What a difference a day makes

Liverpool came into the match safely in the top four, in the thick of three cup competitions and barely in the chase for the Premier League title. The nine point gap with a game in hand wasn’t insurmountable in any normal circumstance, but Manchester City is no normal opponent. Klopp’s selection reflected that reality as he put out a heavily rotated team that looked more like a Carabao Cup side than one that the manager would put out in a …
How Does Diaz Compare to Mo Salah at Roma?

How Does Diaz Compare to Mo Salah at Roma?

In the aftermath of the Diaz transfer being confirmed, those involved on the Under Pressure podcast were investigating the stats behind the Reds' new signing. In an effort to compare different leagues, Dan Kennett used two different academic studies (that you can read here and here).
"Arguing about domestic league strength is something that soccer fans seems to never tire of. (“Could Messi do it on a cold rainy night in Stoke?”) Many of these conversations are anecdotal, leading to …
Liverpool pair Mane and Salah adding to their value at the AFCON

Liverpool pair Mane and Salah adding to their value at the AFCON

No further proof is required to show that Liverpool has two of the best African players and maybe two of the best in the world right now in Sadio Mane and Mohammed Salah. It was surely cries of joy, a bit of frustration and immense pride for the Kopites and the team from the red side of Merseyside, as their two superstars led their respective national teams to the finals of the African Nations Cup. For Kopites worldwide, bonuskode Bet365 …
What does Luis Diaz’s signing mean for Liverpool?

What does Luis Diaz’s signing mean for Liverpool?

You'll know all about Luis Diaz by now. You'll know he is explosively quick, a genuine goal threat and he has that special something about him. You know what I mean, that ability to create something out of nothing that just leaves you confused but impressed. There's a touch of Luis Suarez about him. I've also seen some compare him to Sadio Mane and Roberto Firmino. He is the sort to take something personally. If someone fouls him,  he will …
Luis Díaz - The Lowdown

Luis Díaz - The Lowdown

Not since Ibrahima Konate arrived at Anfield have I been able to submit a piece on a new Liverpool signing. Yet as the first month of 2022 draws to a close, the final period of the transfer window appears to have delivered the Reds' fanbase at least one new signing. Whereas all top level football fans are spoilt, expectant and usually unrealistic within a time of pandemic, Liverpool fans have every right to be relieved at what must be considered …
Diogo Jota & His Starting Role

Diogo Jota & His Starting Role

When Liverpool signed Diogo Jota from Wolves, it was a signing that appeared reactionary to the failure to obtain Timo Werner. In the 18 months since he arrived, Diogo has proven to be not only a valuable rotation piece, but a player that can succeed Sadio Mané on the left-hand side of Liverpool‘s famed attack. The Timo Werner bullet appears to have been dodged, and Jota now holds a value twice what was paid. This season we have seen Diogo …
Liverpool  4 - 0 Southampton - The Player Ratings

Liverpool 4 - 0 Southampton - The Player Ratings

Alisson Becker - 8.0 Some important stops allowed Liverpool to avoid any issues. The most important goalkeeper in Liverpool’s Premier League era, and irreplaceable in this side. Trent Alexander Arnold - 8.0 So impressive in his game. The elegance and natural ability he has is unmatched by any other attacking fullback. Another assist for this sensational talent, and we could be about to see him become consistently world class Andy Robertson - 9.0 There were signs against Porto (as a …
