What Makes The Reds So Great - Part 1

What Makes The Reds So Great - Part 1

Before the worldwide coronavirus pandemic ground the Premier League season to what we are assured is a temporary halt, Liverpool looked set to win the league title at a canter. Winning 27 out of their 29 games, the Reds -- who have beaten every other team in the league on their remarkable run -- find themselves a full 25 points ahead of second-place Manchester City and, mathematically, only need two more wins to claim the clubs’ 19th league success and …

Sabitzer The Latest Bull to be Liverpool Red

Over the last year or so, Liverpool have had an exceptional record in tying down their key players to new deals. Mohamed Salah, Roberto Firmino and Sadio Mane -- among others -- have all penned new contracts to see them remain at Anfield for the foreseeable future. Absent from that list of renewals, however -- despite being just as key a cog to the Reds' winning machine as the aforementioned striking trio -- has been Dutch midfielder Georginio Wijnaldum. Since …

Salah v TAA – Who is Liverpool’s TRUE ‘MVP’ of 2019/20?

Jürgen Klopp couldn't hide his delight with the performance of Mohamed Salah in Liverpool's 2-1 Premier League win over Bournemouth on Saturday. Salah equalised for Liverpool after they had gone behind to an early Callum Wilson strike. Sadio Mané played a poor pass to Salah but the Egyptian forward managed to salvage the situation and finished low at the near post, past Aaron Ramsdale. Mané himself got on the scoresheet before half time to give The Reds the win with …

4231 The Antidote to Liverpool's Recent Woes

Liverpool's recent form -- if not totally reflected in results -- has taken a nosedive. Losing 3 of their last 5 games across three competitions, the Reds have looked slow of both body and mind, despite having a 10 day respite from games thanks to the Premier League's winter break. Victories over Norwich -- the game which preceded the break -- and West Ham United -- the first league game after their temporary hiatus -- came in spite of laboured …

Jurgen Klopp’s men created the best chances of the game against a depleted United side but the scoreline remained on a …
The Secret Behind Liverpool's System

The Secret Behind Liverpool's System

People are going out of their way to not credit Liverpool for their ridiculous season to date. As things stand, VAR has been used as a reason the Reds find themselves 14 points clear with a game in hand. Rival fans have also claimed Jurgen Klopp has been lucky, with the table-toppers avoiding serious injuries, apparently. The latest narrative is that the European champions have few world-class players and that the majority of those being praised are only impressing because …

How would Steven Gerrard fit into Jurgen Klopp's Liverpool team?

How would Steven Gerrard fit into Jurgen Klopp's Liverpool team?

The international break does things to people. Without Liverpool to keep them occupied, the mind can wander. Random debates dominate social media and this time around it centres around Jordan Henderson and Steven Gerrard. Initially, the debate was around whether or not the current Liverpool skipper was a better captain than Gerrard. Opinions were offered and insults were traded but this sparked another conversation on where the former No.8 would play in this current team. The easy answer would be …
