Milner: Liverpool's Cultural Architect

Milner: Liverpool's Cultural Architect

The youngest team in the history of Liverpool Football Club qualified for the fifth round of the F.A. Cup with a 1-0 victory over Shrewsbury at Anfield last night. While youngsters such as Harvey Elliott, Neco Williams and Curtis Jones -- who, at 19 years old, became the youngest captain in the club's history -- received much of the plaudits for their on field contributions, the first team squads elder statesman had a role to play in the victory, too. …
A Team of Rocks Polished Into Diamonds

A Team of Rocks Polished Into Diamonds

Ask anyone who the most transformative presence at Liverpool football club has been over the last decade, and the answer will be unanimous. Jurgen Norbert Klopp. However, while it’s practically indisputable to say that the German has done the best job of any recent Premier League manager, it’s often understated exactly how he got there. Liverpool being the best football team in Europe at the moment has become normalised, in a way that no reasonable Liverpool fan could’ve expected. Everything …
Why Losing Wijnaldum Wouldn't be a Disaster

Why Losing Wijnaldum Wouldn't be a Disaster

Georginio Wijnaldum is an incredibly versatile, incredibly intelligent, and above all else incredibly important midfielder in this Liverpool team. He never gets injured, he never puts in less than a 6/10, he does the job that Klopp asks him to do week in, week out and there’s a reason that he is almost always on the team sheet when fit. Wijnaldum has started 19 of Liverpool’s 20 league games this season and started 32 last season, on top of 11 …
Assertive Henderson Driving Liverpool Title Assault

Assertive Henderson Driving Liverpool Title Assault

The injury to Fabinho was adjudged by many as a harbinger of doom for Liverpool and their prospects this season. After all, the leggy Brazilian was a cornerstone for the Reds as they accumulated 97 Premier League points last season and won their sixth European Cup. Into the sizeable void stepped captain Jordan Henderson and — despite making his positional preference known to Jürgen Klopp, a conversation that facilitated him moving to a more advanced midfield role last season — …
Liverpool 1-0 Everton: Who Was Boy of the Match?

Liverpool 1-0 Everton: Who Was Boy of the Match?

Even against a Liverpool team with an average age of 8 years old, Everton still could not find a way to win at Anfield. That old Shankly quote about the Liverpool reserves being the second best team on Merseyside has never been more relevant than it is today. The Reds move into the 4th round of the FA Cup, despite Klopp’s best efforts, and continue their incredible run of form at home. In goal, Adrian had a lot more to …
Player Ratings as the baby Reds defeat Everton

Player Ratings as the baby Reds defeat Everton

Arguably the most fun I've had watching Liverpool all season, there. The absolute state of Everton Football Club. Appoint one of the greatest managers the game has ever seen, rock up at Anfield to play against Adam Lallana's Nursery XI and STILL come away with a defeat. They might be awful on the pitch, but their commitment to banter is up there with the best in the world. Curtis Jones with the only goal of the game and what a …
Young Liverpool Dump Everton Out of FA Cup

Young Liverpool Dump Everton Out of FA Cup

Liverpool advanced to the fourth round of the FA Cup at the expense of their neighbours Everton with a 1-0 Merseyside Derby win at Anfield. A superb goal from Curtis Jones gave the much changed Reds the victory over their fully loaded local rivals, condemning recently hired manager Carlo Ancelotti to his first defeat in charge. Coming in the midst of a busy run of fixtures, manager Jurgen Klopp elected to make a raft of personnel changes, with only James …
Liverpool 2-0 Sheffield United: Who Was Man of the Match?

Liverpool 2-0 Sheffield United: Who Was Man of the Match?

Liverpool moved 13 points at the top of the Premier League after a very impressive 2-0 win against Sheffield United at Anfield. The Reds controlled the game from start to finish and fully deserved the 3 points and a clean sheet. In goal, Alisson had very little to do once again, until the last 5 minutes. Sheffield United looked certain to score, but Ollie McBurnie couldn’t get enough power on his shot, allowing our gloved Brazilian to catch the ball …
Liverpool 2–0 Sheffield United: Player Ratings As Blades Broken At Anfield

Liverpool 2–0 Sheffield United: Player Ratings As Blades Broken At Anfield

Liverpool started 2020 in fine form with yet another win being in total control. The Blades have fared well this season, but rarely threatened and never looked like taking any spoils from Anfield. Liverpool’s stars showed their quality by asserting themselves at will at both ends of the pitch. Jurgen Klopp will surely be pleased as his men end the Christmas period with a perfect record. Alisson – 8 Liverpool’s Brazilian at the back hasn’t had a lot to do …
Lustrous Liverpool Maintain Healthy League Lead

Lustrous Liverpool Maintain Healthy League Lead

Liverpool maintained their 13 point lead at the top of the Premier League table with a 2-0 victory over Sheffield United at Anfield. Goals in each half from Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mane sufficed for the Reds in a performance of irrepressible control which saw them keep their fifth consecutive league clean sheet. James Milner was a late addition to the team, with Naby Keita injuring his groin in the warm up, but the alternation done nothing to slow the …
