How Liverpool’s Left Wing Evolved

How Liverpool’s Left Wing Evolved

A few weeks ago, Burnley rolled into Anfield with a certain and pleasing team sheet on view. As the starting line ups were confirmed, something became evident, which was the squad numbers rolling out of the Burnley roster. To see numbers 1 through 11 was a lovely sight, especially if you’re a particular age that grew up with this logical numbering system. Eleven players, eleven shirts, and each number usually assigned to a certain position. To see Burnley line up …
Clash Of The Reds' World Class Titans

Clash Of The Reds' World Class Titans

The history of Liverpool FC is littered with attacking brilliance, overflowing with characters, and allows the fans a chance to relive memorable moments with a smile. Recent years (predominantly the Premier League era), has seen a marvellous array of forwards grace the Anfield turf, and disagreements as to who was better than who, will always be argued by the fan base. Where Ian Rush holds an almost insurmountable goal tally, his heir Robbie Fowler, possessed such clinical abilities in front …

How should Liverpool line-up in attack this season?

How should Liverpool line-up in attack this season?

Neil Jones got a lot of Liverpool fans talking recently when he wrote that 'next summer is already being talked up as a big one by sources close to the club'. I chose, based on past experience, not to read into that. Instead, it was another line in his piece that stood out to me. "Wonderful as they are, this will be the fifth season that those three [Mohamed Salah, Roberto Firmino and Sadio Mane, of course] have made up …

Refreshed Mané could be Liverpool’s main man this season

Refreshed Mané could be Liverpool’s main man this season

It’s that time of year again. Silly season - the few weeks every summer when the transfer rumour mill goes into overdrive crushing every grain of information about this or that player’s future into a fine powder of speculation. It’s an especially active mill this year, as is tradition during major tournament summers. This time around, its display at the delayed Euro 2020 finals that have pushed Sky Sports News and other 24/7 update providers into a predictable frenzy over …
Time for a central role for Mohamed Salah?

Time for a central role for Mohamed Salah?

Liverpool are back, looking healthy and refreshed after a much-needed post-season break. The 2020/21 campaign was an intense one for the Reds, both mentally and physically, and both Jurgen Klopp and his players looked drained by the time they sealed Champions League football back in May. If one player carried this team more than anyone in 2020/21 it was Salah, who enjoyed another outstanding season while others around him struggled. Liverpool's No.11 scored 31 goals in all competitions, standing tall …
What should Liverpool do with Divock Origi?

What should Liverpool do with Divock Origi?

I won’t hear a bad word said against Divock Origi, but the club need to sell him this summer.  He’s a cult hero for what he did during the 2018/19 campaign and there’s absolutely no disputing that. It is still surreal to think back to that season and his involvement in it. He was chucked on late against Everton with Liverpool looking to sneak a win and he was in the right place to nod home after Jordan Pickford’s error. …
Exploring the New Age of Advanced Statistics that put Mané as Liverpool’s Top Player in 2020/21

Exploring the New Age of Advanced Statistics that put Mané as Liverpool’s Top Player in 2020/21

Football may be the world’s most popular sport, but it took a very long time for truly advanced statistics of the game to come into power. So many other sports rely on statistics drawn from just about every possible event or situation in a game, and yet, football, with its billions of followers, often falls back on rudimentary statistics. Games won, drawn, and lost, goal difference, goals scored, assists, minutes played, and bookings have long been the extent of the …
Gini Wijnaldum's legacy at Liverpool

Gini Wijnaldum's legacy at Liverpool

Gini Wijnaldum and Sadio Mane kickstarted the Jurgen Klopp era at Liverpool. They were the two big signings during the German’s first summer at Anfield.  Both played a significant part in getting the club into the top four during the 2016/17 campaign. The pair had a key role in the Reds reaching the 2017/18 Champions League final. They repeated the feat the year after, with Liverpool claiming their sixth European Cup in Madrid. A year later, the duo helped the …
