Alexander Arnold The Hidden Midfielder In Plain Sight

Alexander Arnold The Hidden Midfielder In Plain Sight

The question of whether Trent Alexander Arnold will transition from a right back to a midfielder is often asked in footballing circle. Such is the 21 year old's unique skill-set, it is felt by many that he is wasted at full back. His talents, it is said, would be better suited to a more central position where he could receive the ball more and have a bigger influence on proceedings. The truth is, however, that the academy graduate -- despite …
Liverpool are nine points clear of Man City. Now what?

Liverpool are nine points clear of Man City. Now what?

Liverpool are nine points clear of Manchester City and eight points clear at the top of the Premier League going into the November international break. This piece is going to mostly be about where the hell the Reds go from here, and look at some of the maths now that such a lead has been carved out, but first it’s worth a brief reflection of how they got here. The game will be covered in better detail elsewhere so I …
Liverpool 3-1 Manchester City: Who Was Man of the Match?

Liverpool 3-1 Manchester City: Who Was Man of the Match?

What a win that is. Absolutely delightful to get another one over the cardigan-clad crybaby and put us a monstrous 9 points clear of City and 8 points clear at the top of the table. We were extraordinarily clinical when the chances and half-chances fell our way, while the Sky Blues couldn’t do enough to break us down more than once. All the talk will be about VAR as usual but pay no heed to that rubbish – every major …
Player ratings as Liverpool rattle Pep's cage once again

Player ratings as Liverpool rattle Pep's cage once again

An absolute thunderbolt from Fabinho combined with headers  from Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mané secured a 3-1 win for Liverpool against title rivals Manchester City on Sunday, moving the Reds nine points ahead of the Citizens and eight clear at the top of the Premier League. It was a match with no shortage of drama, nor a shortage of quality, Jurgen Klopp's men racing into a 3-0 lead and holding off the resistance City had to offer, bar what turned …
We need to talk about Naby Keita

We need to talk about Naby Keita

Naby Keita is the latest in a long line of players to divide opinion at Liverpool. He's a victim of hype others created for him and there's no escaping that. The deal to bring him to Anfield was unique in the sense fans has to wait an entire year to see him turn out for the club. The recruitment team, namely Ian Graham, saw his value and convinced those he had to that Liverpool needed this player. That not only …
Liverpool 2-1 Genk: Who Was Man of the Match?

Liverpool 2-1 Genk: Who Was Man of the Match?

Another unnecessarily nervy ending to a game we largely dominated. We’re making a bit of a habit of conceding every game despite the opposition creating very little. A win is a win, though, and it sees us move to the top of the group after Napoli drew with Salzburg. You’ve always got to be happy with three points, especially when key players were left out of the starting line up to keep them fresh for the weekend. Having said that, …
Liverpool Return To Group E Summit With 2-1 Genk Win

Liverpool Return To Group E Summit With 2-1 Genk Win

Liverpool climbed to the top of the Group E table with a 2-1 win over Genk at Anfield. Goals from Georginio Wijnaldum and Alex Oxlade Chamberlain sufficed for the Reds, despite the concession of a goal to Mbwana Samatta. Having started the game in second place, Napoli's 1-1 draw with Salzburg in Italy means Jurgen Klopp's men will be top when they entertain Carlo Ancelotti's side on match day 5 on November 27th. Electing to make wholesale changes -- six …
Liverpool 2-1 Genk - Player Ratings as Reds go top of Champions League group

Liverpool 2-1 Genk - Player Ratings as Reds go top of Champions League group

It was not a vintage performance. It was far from a European night at Anfield that will be remembered for long. But, in the end, Liverpool got themselves a 2-1 win over Genk that put them top of Group E, and took a big step towards qualification for the Round of 16. Gini Wijnaldum's early goal was cancelled out by Mbwana Samatta's header just before half-time. But Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain stepped up to score the winner, and become the Reds' joint …
Aston Villa 1-2 Liverpool: Who Was Man of the Match?

Aston Villa 1-2 Liverpool: Who Was Man of the Match?

I’ll be honest with you all – I turned my Chinese stream off a couple of minutes before Robertson’s equaliser. I didn’t think it was worth the constant flicking between grainy, lag-ridden pictures just to see us lose. How wrong I was. This team just never gives up and despite Jon Moss and Martin Atkinson’s best efforts, the Reds find a way to dig out yet another win. It wasn’t the best of performances, but let’s have a look at …
Player Ratings as the Mentality Monsters do it again

Player Ratings as the Mentality Monsters do it again

Fuckin' hell, what a team. Another one pulled out of our arses, at the death, as it looked like everything was going against us. As far as I'm concerned, Martin Atkinson is the worst referee in the world and Klopp needs to start getting into the media's ear, Fergie style, regarding him. Firmino should have a goal, we should probably have a penalty, it didn't need to be that hard. Fair play to Kloppo, ballsy as anything to take Salah …
