Looking back, it struck me that very few of my favourite derby memories took place at Anfield. Most were at other grounds – Wembley, Maine Road and Goodison. The standout games across the park were the 3-2 in 1985, when the teams were arguably the two best sides in Europe, and the 5-0 in 1982. […]

And just like that, the Reds hit rock bottom, probably. This sort of result merely adds to the ongoing list of horrors that have engulfed Liverpool FC, so far this season. With Champions League qualification now an unlikely quest for this season, the remainder of our campaign surely becomes about damage limitation. With another dreadful […]

Liverpool need a quick and effective start to the second half of the season, of that there’s no doubt. The margin for error is flirting with the non-existent, as the race for the top four looks like being as competitive as ever. To ensure the ‘minimum expectation’ as Jurgen Klopp defined it is that the […]

I wrote a piece earlier in the season in relation to Joe Gomez. It was centred around the notable talents this England international possesses, and how his former place in the starting line up could be regained, especially with the injuries to Ibou & Matip. You can see the link here, but unfortunately for our […]

There’s always one attribute for elite players that can get ignored – availability. Consistency is the obvious one that gets mentioned and often used as an argument against footballers when debating their level. Liverpool fans could see both those charges levied against a couple of their centre backs right now and it would be very […]

Ain’t nobody like Joe Gomez… It’s certainly been a challenging campaign for the 25 year old defender. Numerous lows have been punctuated with the occasional high, as Gomez has found himself the focus for many in a struggling Liverpool side. History has counted for the player somewhat with many, but what has been shown on […]

The summer before last saw Liverpool pay £34m for Ibrahima Konate, securing his services from German outfit RB Leipzig. The season prior had seen Liverpool‘s central defence end the season with Nat Phillips and Rhys Williams in the first team, as they scrambled for Champions League qualification. That season had seen Virgil van Dijk, Joe […]

It’s international week, and unless it’s a major summer competition, I rarely pay any attention to the results and performances. The games usually revolve around occasions of no consequence, uneven match ups, silly qualification games, and a raft of ever-changing line ups. I checked on Monday to see whether the international break was over, only […]

Silly season(n) 1: a period (such as late summer) when the mass media often focus on trivial or frivolous matters for lack of major news stories 2: a period marked by frivolous, outlandish, or illogical activity or behaviour. There’s been a lot of silliness. It’s roughly two months since the Champions League final. A disappointing end on […]

Southampton 1 – 2 Liverpool – Man Of The Match Joel Matip Came into the team at the weekend when Virgil got injured, and started tonight as the defensive leader. The most underrated defender in the league, he is so controlled and alert nowadays. The goal was vital, and came at a critical moment. Liverpool […]
