Klopp’s Counter-Pressing Philosophy: Deja Vu Jürgen Klopp once said that “no playmaker in the world can be as good as a good counter-pressing situation,” and his team proved the point in their 5-2 victory over Norwich City in the FA Cup on Sunday. What will have pleased the (sadly soon to be ex-) Liverpool manager […]

The Enigma of Football Chants: From Humor to Inspiration Football chants can be the funniest, catchiest songs you’ll ever hear. They can lodge themselves in your brain and have you moving more than most pop songs. Granted, some take inspiration from chart hits – Luis Suárez just couldn’t get enough – or maybe children’s songs […]

Liverpool’s Performance at Arsenal: Beyond Shearer’s Words Without wanting to refashion this column into some kind of weekly Alan Shearer Show, the former Newcastle striker and pundit recently made some strange comments relating to a Liverpool match for the second week running. Rather than airing his opinion regarding the award of penalty on social media, […]

Liverpool’s Resilience Against Man City Would you have taken a point ahead of kick-off against Manchester City on Saturday lunchtime? If you wouldn’t have at 12:30, you almost certainly would have just after 2pm, with the Reds a goal down and time rapidly running out. It was always going to be difficult for Liverpool to […]

Statistical Analysis by Anfield Index In a game where control is paramount, Manchester City demonstrated a masterclass in possession against Liverpool, with data from Futmob and Opta revealing a dominant 60% control of the ball. This significant share of possession is a hallmark of City’s playstyle, reflecting their philosophy of dictating the game’s pace and […]

The Art of the Soundbite Bill Shankly was the master of the soundbite, the one-liner, the quip. Imagine how he’d be on Twitter in 2023, with Everton struggling every year. Even their own fans want to draw the curtains when they’re playing these days. Jürgen Klopp also has a way with words, which is all […]

“Simon, are you sometimes over-thinking stuff?” Those were the words uttered by Mrs Mignolet last season as she attempted to resolve her then-fiancé’s form. Sure enough, after his wife’s inspirational chat, Mr Mignolet’s displays improved. The once erratic goalkeeper went back to basics and looked a different player in the second half of the season. […]

Earlier in the season, following Liverpool’s 2-1 defeat at Manchester City, I wrote an article looking at Simon Mignolet’s first season up to that point as the Reds’ first choice goalkeeper following his summer move from Sunderland. At the time he had just made himself public enemy number one to a group of fans (oh […]

On looking at the league table, it would be easy to blame Liverpool’s failure to win the title on their defence. It would be easy to do, partly because it’s true. However, there are many things to take into account when analysing why a team concedes the goals they do. What follows is a look […]

A soul-destroying week has brought our title hopes down from cloud nine to only a slight chance of glory. The two results against Chelsea and Crystal Palace have gifted Manchester City an unbelievable chance of regaining the Premier League title – and even though we’ll be cheering on Villa and West Ham like they’re our […]
