Four From Four - Business as Usual for Liverpool

Four From Four - Business as Usual for Liverpool

We are four games into the Premier League season, so naturally, it’s time for an irritating international break. International breaks, of course, have their benefits: being able to focus on the Ashes, the slight increase in quality in David Squires’ cartoons, managing to go a whole weekend without having some sort of stress-induced heart attack, and for those of us that actually enjoy it, the prospect of seeing your national team play. There are some benefits for Liverpool and its …
Why Firmino Makes it all Work

Why Firmino Makes it all Work

As the dust settled on a convincing victory at one of Liverpool’s most precarious hunting grounds, and a spat between Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mané proliferated the post-match headlines, it was one cheeky smile and movement of the eyes that set everybody at ease. Indeed, it was also the arm of Roberto Firmino around Sadio Mané, as the latter continued his remonstrations with his manager regarding his partner in crime’s noticeable hunger for a goal, that showed Liverpool fans what …
Oxlade-Chamberlain adds another dimension to Liverpool midfield

Oxlade-Chamberlain adds another dimension to Liverpool midfield

The 4-1 dismantling of Norwich City or the Super Cup triumph over Chelsea should be the highlight of the two weeks old 2019/20 campaign but the biggest positive so far arrived in the 2-1 victory against Southampton.  No, it wasn’t Sadio Mane continuing his destructive 2019 with a goal and an assist. It wasn’t Roberto Firmino opening his account for the campaign just days after coming off the bench to change the game against Frank Lampard’s side in Istanbul.  It …
Roberto Firmino could be even better this season

Roberto Firmino could be even better this season

Roberto Firmino has started the season like he means business. It isn’t something Liverpool fans are used to with the Brazilian usually looking off the pace when he returns to pre-season after a summer break.  It’s by no means comparable to a Sunday League player trotting round the pitch after a heavy Saturday night but it’s safe to say Firmino tends to enjoy his summer breaks. He picks up the pace after a few weeks but fans have got used …
Fabinho's influence on the Liverpool midfield

Fabinho's influence on the Liverpool midfield

Despite being European champions, Liverpool have a squad full of divisive players. Some are undervalued and some are simply misunderstood. There are a number who tick both boxes and one such player is Fabinho.  The Brazilian doesn’t score goals. He doesn’t assist them either. He doesn’t play 70-yard crossfield passes that are shown on the Match of the Day highlight reel and he’s not the sort to dance past four opposition players before picking out a team-mate. The former Monaco …
The Liverpool eleven Jurgen Klopp might go with against Norwich

The Liverpool eleven Jurgen Klopp might go with against Norwich

Liverpool get the Premier League underway against Norwich this Friday night so we take a look at the starting lineup Jurgen Klopp might select. After an impressive performance against Manchester City during last Sunday's Community Shield, Klopp has some big decisions to make around his first starting eleven of the season. In goals, Alisson will start while new signing Adrian should be the reserve 'keeper for The Reds after Simon Mignolet's departure earlier this week. Joel Matip's goalscoring substitute appearance …
Emre Can Deserves All The Inevitable Praise

Emre Can Deserves All The Inevitable Praise

Emre Can deserves this. In the following days, maybe even weeks, he’s going to be eulogized by Liverpool fans, waxing lyrical over his talents and all rushing to be the ones to claim that they always believed in him, as his spectacular bicycle kick, Liverpool’s goal of the season despite Phil Coutinho’s best efforts, gifted Liverpool a 1-0 win over Watford that puts them one big step nearer to Champions League football. And he absolutely deserves it. And it was …
Liverpool's Rollercoaster Ride Ends - Consistency Inevitable

Liverpool's Rollercoaster Ride Ends - Consistency Inevitable

It’s been a very entertaining year for Liverpool fans across all seven corners of the world so far. Scintillating games from October last year with masterful performances against Chelsea, Manchester City, Villareal and Borussia Dortmund, followed by disappointing results against West Ham, Watford, Southampton and Newcastle was indeed a rollercoaster ride last season, as said by plenty of Reds when Liverpool Football Club decided to part ways with incumbent Celtic manager Brendan Rodgers, and appointed who is probably their biggest …
Liverpool Need To Convert Leads into Victories - It's Not Easy

Liverpool Need To Convert Leads into Victories - It's Not Easy

If it happens once you can pass it off as being normal. You're told that It happens to everybody and not to worry about it. You nod in agreement at the reassurance being offered. If the same problem continuously happens then you have two choices; bury your head, pretend it's normal and carry on nodding or actually acknowledge there's an issue and look to rectify it. Liverpool have a few problems, too many to state and if you attempted to …
Oddities and Aggression Reignite Liverpool's Season

Oddities and Aggression Reignite Liverpool's Season

From its opening shots back in Summer 2015, this season has been one of the most unpredictable ever seen. Even now, as we roll through March, nothing is certain. Oh, unless you’re a Villa fan that is. As a supporter I’ve never experienced anything like it. I mean we’ve all seen blips in the usually predictable landscape over the years. I remember Norwich City having a spell in the sun, Blackburn Rovers as champions, Newcastle United and their Keegan influenced …
