2018-19 Premier League fixture reaction. The season we win it?

2018-19 Premier League fixture reaction. The season we win it?

With the recent disappointment of the proposed Nabil Fekir signing falling through, Liverpool fans have been in need of a distraction to take their minds off the circus that the transfer window rumour mill. Not only is the World Cup due to begin today (hooray football is back!), but the 2018-19 Premier League fixture list has also been released. As a fan base, we have the tendency to dwell on frustrations of the past, so the 2018-19 fixture list is …
Liverpool Fans Need to Stay Calm

Liverpool Fans Need to Stay Calm

It's been a tough few weeks of late, with Liverpool dropping points against Newcastle, Burnley, Spartak Moscow and Sevilla whilst also getting knocked out of the League Cup by Leicester. Some fans have even started to turn on the manager. It's strange, Liverpool are only seven games into the league season and people are already writing off their chances of Champions League qualification, the season entirely, and subsequently there's talk of a club in crisis. Yet the table does not …
Why Liverpool's centre-backs need to start defending as a pair

Why Liverpool's centre-backs need to start defending as a pair

Another game, another avoidable goal conceded and yet two more points dropped.....sound familiar? A game that the Reds having scored the all-important first goal should have won with ease instead turned into another case of deja vu. I wrote earlier this summer that if we didn't sign a top-class centre-half the transfer window would've been a failure and for me it's hard to argue against this, but if we forget the players we haven't got and focus on the ones …
Daniel Sturridge: Past His Best But Badly Misunderstood

Daniel Sturridge: Past His Best But Badly Misunderstood

That 1-1 draw at Newcastle on Sunday was infuriating enough, but talkSPORT then decided to spout their usual bile. I say talkSPORT, but in this case it was an individual - Mr Deadline Day himself, Jim White, who presents a morning show on the station during the week. Taking to his twitter account on Monday, White asked the question:
"Talking Daniel Sturridge @talkSPORT right now! Is his attitude holding him back and is his time @LFC coming to an …
Tactically Breaking Down Liverpool's Draw At Newcastle

Tactically Breaking Down Liverpool's Draw At Newcastle

Regular readers, you may have noticed that I did not write any tactical pieces for either of Liverpool's games against Leicester City, or the Spartak fixture. Sorry about that, I had some technical issues - nonetheless, I'm back now, and hope to continue with these pieces throughout the season. Like in Liverpool's previous games, against Spartak, Sevilla and Burnley, Liverpool can simply be characterised by poor finishing, and being undone by their own individual errors. Indeed, it's more of the …

Rafa Vs Jurgen: Differences and Similarities

"I am very, very proud to be joining one of the most important clubs in the world in one of the best leagues in the world - and I want to win."- Rafael Benitez, June 2004 "It's the biggest honour I can imagine, one of the biggest clubs in the world. I've been given the opportunity to help in this situation, but it's not so difficult as some people in this room think … It's not a normal, usual …

Should Milner Be Left Back On The Bench?

Should Milner Be Left Back On The Bench?

Hey, you! Yes, you - the person refreshing their Twitter feed incessantly with a daft grin plastered all over their face. Now, I realise you're all excited by the apparently imminent arrival of Virgil Van Dijk and Mohamed Salah, but weren't you the one that was having a good old moan a couple of days ago about the club's lack of ambition? Didn't you compose a string of strongly worded Facebook posts about how Liverpool's unwillingness to spend a fortune …
Wijnaldum Bites Back But Reds Need To Be Quiet

Wijnaldum Bites Back But Reds Need To Be Quiet

Sometimes things just pan out, don't they? This morning, as Latest News queued for coffee, the friendly gent who runs the shop offered complimentary ciabatta to your correspondent. A glorious breakfast ensued. Later, whilst scanning the news on Planet Liverpool and quite literally ruminating, there came another moment of serendipity. Following this column's recent lamentations about Redmen saying things that are probably best left unsaid until the season's over and a genuine goal has been achieved, BEHOLD - a Redman …
