Key Points That Klopp Needs To Address In The World Cup Break

Key Points That Klopp Needs To Address In The World Cup Break

With the remaining Reds that won’t be heading to the World Cup in Qatar, it represents an opportunity to realign what has veered off course this year. Jurgen Klopp and Pep Lijnders will undoubtedly be laying out a route back to consistent success, and I think we would all like to see that old mentality, old drive, and much loved intensity return, when the Premier League resumes in late December. These first team players are not boarding their national team's …
World Cup betting: 3 Liverpool players worth a look

World Cup betting: 3 Liverpool players worth a look

The 2022 World Cup has arrived and despite all the controversies surrounding the decision to host the tournament in Qatar this winter, fans are still excited to watch some of the world best players duke it out over the coming weeks. Several Liverpool players won’t be participating in the World Cup with the likes of Andrew Robertson, Joe Gomez, Mohamed Salah, Luis Diaz, Diogo Jota and Roberto Firminio all left back on Merseyside. However, Jurgen Klopp still has seven representatives …
Liverpool 3 - 1 Southampton - The Post-mortem

Liverpool 3 - 1 Southampton - The Post-mortem

A win is a win, and to sign off for the mid-season World Cup break with three points is a massive bonus for everything Liverpool FC related. With our manager (Jurgen Klopp) banished to the stands for one game, the pre match once again had an air of uncertainty. Would Southampton explode with that new manager bounce? Would Jurgen jump from the upper stands into the technical area? And would Liverpool once again capitulate at Anfield? The day prior seemed …
World Cup Squads 11/11: Van Dijk, Nunez In, Thiago, Fabio out

World Cup Squads 11/11: Van Dijk, Nunez In, Thiago, Fabio out

On November 11th, we saw a clash of the Borussia sides in the Bundesliga, and eight World Cup squads released! Netherlands, Senegal, Uruguay, Argentina, Qatar, Portugal, Serbia and Spain all revealed their teams today. Unsurprisingly, Netherland's captain Virgil Van Dijk was selected, and $85M frontman Darwin Nunez was picked for Uruguay. Thiago and Fabio Carvalho were both sadly omitted from their respective sides, while Jota missed out due to injury. Ex-Red Sadio Mane was predictably picked for Senegal, as were …
Southampton (H): What Lessons Did We Learn?

Southampton (H): What Lessons Did We Learn?

The performance proved to be good enough, but the result was all that truly mattered against Southampton on Saturday. In our last game before the World Cup, Liverpool simply couldn’t afford to surrender any further ground in their fight for a top-four finish. Ultimately, the Reds did prevail and in a certain sense, there’s a slight disappointment the break comes at a time when a sense of momentum was being built. However, as yesterday showed there’s plenty still to work …
Lessons Learned in the Reds' Victory Over Spurs

Lessons Learned in the Reds' Victory Over Spurs

A vital three points was obtained at the Spurs stadium, as Liverpool breathed some new life into a faltering league campaign. All the headlines were naturally grabbed by Mo Salah, as a ninth goal in eight games ensured the Reds at least kept the top 4 within their sites. There were a few other standouts from the game that it was impossible to ignore as the penultimate league match before the World Cup saw all three points return to Anfield. …
Liverpool vs Napoli: Full XI or Kids?

Liverpool vs Napoli: Full XI or Kids?

Liverpool's 3-0 win over Ajax on Wednesday night clinched their spot in the knockout round of the UCL. This puts Liverpool in a familiar position: one game left to play, with nothing on the line. In the extremely rare event that Liverpool beat Napoli by 4, Liverpool would finish first in Group A. However, in any other result, the final table standings remain unchanged, with Napoli on top of the group, and the Reds in second. This brings up one …
Ajax v Liverpool - The Champions League Preview

Ajax v Liverpool - The Champions League Preview

Liverpool come into this game needing a point to qualify for the next phase of the Champions League. Both wins against Rangers were as expected, but it was the Reds' home win against Ajax which has allowed them a chance to qualify with a game to spare. Napoli are one of the form teams in Europe, and to need something from their final group game (at home to Napoli) is undesirable at best. With a dreadful weekend loss at Nottingham …
Do Liverpool need an attacker?

Do Liverpool need an attacker?

All of the focus has been on whether or not Liverpool need midfield reinforcements over recent weeks. The attack has been somewhat neglected.  It is one of those areas for the Reds that, on paper, looks well stocked. In reality, though, it is a little light. At surface level, Jurgen Klopp has five senior attackers at his disposal in Mohamed Salah, Diogo Jota, Luis Diaz, Roberto Firmino and Darwn Nunez. He also possesses Fabio Carvalho and Harvey Elliott could play …
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 …
