The Good, The Bad and The Ugly from Liverpool vs Crystal Palace

The Good, The Bad and The Ugly from Liverpool vs Crystal Palace

Two games, two draws, four points dropped. Liverpool's start to the 22/23 Premier League season has been less than ideal on and off the pitch. Performances have been well below what is required, the squad is short of quality in midfield and the injuries are mounting up. Liverpool have failed to win their first two Premier League games, with disappointing draws against newly-promoted Fulham and Crystal Palace. Hyperbole abounds, with some people already writing off the title this season and …
Manchester United v Liverpool - Klopp Needs To Up His Own Game

Manchester United v Liverpool - Klopp Needs To Up His Own Game

If you had the chance to listen to the latest edition of ‘Rate, Don’t Hate’ podcast on the Anfield Index, you’ll know that I’m all for some form of shake-up within this current Liverpool team. As it stands, the injury crisis is alarming, and will make certain decisions a necessity when the times comes to picking the eleven for next Monday evening. What we do know is that Darwin will be joining that injury list for the next few weeks, …
Liverpool 1 - 1 Crystal Palace - The Player Ratings

Liverpool 1 - 1 Crystal Palace - The Player Ratings

Liverpool 1 - 1 Crystal Palace - The Player Ratings Alisson Becker - 6.5 Came in for some flak last week. He could do nothing for the opening goal, and was superb in denying Zaha shortly thereafter in a one on one. Had little to do, in another frustration filled game. Trent Alexander-Arnold - 6.5 A rare poor outing versus Fulham, he looked to redeem himself immediately. He was eager in trying to unleash those ahead, and probably should have …
Salah Salvages a Draw: Man of the Match

Salah Salvages a Draw: Man of the Match

Throughout the tightly contested league opener, Salah justified the widespread desire to keep him at the club for years to come. Without the three points, it's harder to relish an impressive display, but an assist and a goal was enough to salvage a point and perhaps catch the imagination of supporters wondering what the Egyptian King might bring to the new campaign. Luis Diaz looked the likeliest to grab headlines in the first half, but his left-footed effort that hit …
Fulham 2 - 2 Liverpool - Player Ratings

Fulham 2 - 2 Liverpool - Player Ratings

Alisson Becker - 6.0 Came straight back in after injury, and saw some good early action to ease himself in. Will feel very unlucky to have conceded two with so little clear cut chances coming his way. Was a spectator for the most part. Trent Alexander-Arnold - 6.0 He seemed unable to command his flank, with Fulham intent on creating a war zone whenever certain players were in possession. Was able to aid the forwards with the last goal, but …
Key Stats as Liverpool drop points on opening day

Key Stats as Liverpool drop points on opening day

It was a frustrating opening to the season for the Reds, as they struggled their way to a 2-2 draw against Fulham. Goals from Darwin Nunez and Mo Salah were enough to scrape a point, but Jurgen Klopp will be incredibly disappointed with a performance that lacked intensity for large periods. But what were the Key Stats as Liverpool kicked off their season? A Slow Start The Reds were particularly poor in the first half. During this period, they had …
Be Patient, The Best Is Yet To Come

Be Patient, The Best Is Yet To Come

When Andy Robertson signed from Hull City, it took nearly half a season for him to work his way into the first team of Liverpool. Albie Moreno was outperforming his expected levels, and the fact that Virgil Van Dijk was marshalling him, meant he was thriving at left back. Robbo was seen as a cheap option (compared to the inflated Ben Chilwell), and his signing didn’t move the needle much. His cost was basically recouped in its entirety, as Hull …
My First Liverpool Idols

My First Liverpool Idols

I was born 12th November, 1981. My very first array of visible LFC memories probably started in the early 90’s. There are a few snippets here and there prior to that, but the problematic period between Graham Souness leaving & Roy Evans taking over, is probably my first absolute batch of memories. I recall my brother and I had a 1992/93 squad photo in our room, the one with the manager front and centre. The most notable players (to me …
Can Mo Salah Win 2022 Ballon d’Or?

Can Mo Salah Win 2022 Ballon d’Or?

Mohamed Salah was named the PFA Player of the Year for the second time last season, becoming just one of only seven players in the history of the Premier League to achieve that feat. Salah has committed his future to Liverpool FC by signing a new contract over the summer, which will see him continue playing for the reds for another three years. He will be hoping to continue with his winning streak to pick up both individual and team honours. Fast …
Imagine The Carnage

Imagine The Carnage

And just like that, all was well again. This Liverpool squad is still short of one more player, but a huge sigh of relief can now be breathed, as Mohamed Salah finally signed a new three year contract. The absolute details of that new detail are completely irrelevant to me, as the decision making of the club simply make it a deal that must suit all parties. A small portion of the fanbase became blinkered to the player that Mohamed …
