Man City 1 Liverpool 1 - Community Shield: Who Was Man Of The Match?

Man City 1 Liverpool 1 - Community Shield: Who Was Man Of The Match?

With the Community Shield – a match part-preseason friendly, part-trophy competition – you can construct any narrative you want. You can easily overreact to the result: If you win, it’s laying down a marker to start the season; if you lose, it shows you’re not ready to make a serious title challenge. You can also dump a big bucket of cold water on the results: If you win, it doesn’t mean much; if you lose, the side just hasn’t hit …
Liverpool 3 Lyon 1 | Reds back to winning ways before City test

Liverpool 3 Lyon 1 | Reds back to winning ways before City test

Liverpool concluded their pre-season programme with a 3-1 victory over Lyon in Geneva. Goals from Roberto Firmino, a Joachim Andersen own goal and Harry Wilson gave the Reds their first victory in four pre-season games after they had fallen behind to an early Memphis Depay penalty. Jurgen Klopp surprised many with the experimental nature of line up, with Adam Lallana deepest of a midfield three with Naby Keita and Xherdan Shaqiri. Mohamed Salah, Alisson Becker and Firmino also started, just …
Wilson, Woodburn & Kent: What next for Liverpool's young trio?

Wilson, Woodburn & Kent: What next for Liverpool's young trio?

Liverpool wouldn't feel like Liverpool if supporters weren't airing some sort of grievance relating to the club, even at this wonderful time. The current grievance of choice is the Reds' summer transfer activity, which has seen them sign just one player so far: young Dutch centre-back Sepp van den Berg. There is a frustrating element to Liverpool's business, without question, with fans desperate for Jurgen Klopp's men to kick on and make the most of being European champions. While the …
Liverpool Players At The Forefront of Brazilian Success

Liverpool Players At The Forefront of Brazilian Success

Brazil sailed through to the Copa America final with a 2-0 victory over their eternal rivals, Argentina, on Tuesday night, thanks in no small part to Liverpool players. It is a testament to Liverpool’s growth in recent years that they have players playing in key roles for a footballing powerhouse like Brazil. Goals from Manchester’s City’s Gabriel Jesus and Liverpool’s Roberto Firmino further extended Lionel Messi’s wait for international silverware with Argentina. The diminutive Barcelona number ten tried his hardest …
Liverpool Uncovered: Tier 1 Transfer Tales

Liverpool Uncovered: Tier 1 Transfer Tales

Sometimes the people that care about you the most tell you lies. Yes. It’s true. Or, I might be lying right now, because I do care, dear reader. I really do... Sometimes my wife tells me that my hair looks like it’s growing back or that I’ll eventually fit into my pants again. My parents would tell me my pet fish just liked to sleep upside-down, yet Sharky always seemed suspiciously refreshed after the pet-store opened. The people we trust …
Why Liverpool Must Spend This Summer

Why Liverpool Must Spend This Summer

In any other era of football history, a 97 point haul in the league would guarantee the league title. Unfortunately for Liverpool, this is the era of Manchester City and their state-sponsored, law-flouting spending and their club record points tally wasn’t sufficient to claim the clubs first league since the 1989-90 season. Liverpool’s squad, as the league table indicates and the Champions League victory further reinforces, is excellent. It is, however, not deep enough. Until the required quality is added …
Mohamed Salah: Two years that created a Liverpool legend

Mohamed Salah: Two years that created a Liverpool legend

When Mohamed Salah signed for Liverpool on the 22nd of July 2017, it's fair to say that more than a few eyebrows were raised. At the time, what seemed like a fairly hefty fee of £36.9 million - which was at this stage a club record fee - it's only fair to say Salah's signing failed to convince everyone at first. Fast forward two years, two golden boots, two sensational seasons and one Champions League winners medal later, and Salah …
Klopp's Liverpool are far more than heavy metal football

Klopp's Liverpool are far more than heavy metal football

Jürgen Klopp said once that he likes his sides to play heavy metal football. We have had many, many examples of this over the past three-and-a-bit years of his reign as Liverpool manager, with some incredible and memorable performances along the way. We all remember some of the roller-coaster games of Klopp's Liverpool; Norwich 4-5 Liverpool in 2016, the incredible comeback against his former side Borussia Dortmund - and while we're on the subject of European comebacks, how can we …
Liverpool Fans: From Doubters to Winners

Liverpool Fans: From Doubters to Winners

It’s always different than how you imagined it. Because imagination can’t possibly predict every emotion. The almost-overwhelming nerves in the build-up, the way your eyes close when the first rendition of You’ll Never Walk Alone resounds throughout the Wanda Metropolitano, the sensation of suddenly being eight feet in the air when the ref blows for the penalty. Words fail supporters of football clubs at those kinds of moments, and for Liverpool, a team so bound by fighting the unwavering tide, …
Madrid Can Be Mane’s Defining Moment

Madrid Can Be Mane’s Defining Moment

The legendary 4-0 win over Barcelona will be remembered for so many reasons by Liverpool supporters. The impact of Divock Origi and Gini Wijnaldum will rightly be at the top of the list when the game is looked back on in decades to come, following their heroic double apiece. Similarly, Trent Alexander-Arnold’s outrageous assist for Origi’s tie-clinching strike will go down in legend for its audacity and speed of thought. Alisson’s expertise in the Reds goal helped keep his side …
