Thiago Influence Can Lift Jordan Henderson To Old Self

Thiago Influence Can Lift Jordan Henderson To Old Self

Jordan Henderson is an extremely versatile player, as we've seen throughout the entirety of his Liverpool career. Whether it's been as the midfield anchor, as an energetic, box to box tornado of engine room intensity or -- as we saw in his first season with the Reds, under Kenny Dalglish -- as a right midfielder in midfield four, the captain has been a consistent performer for most of the time since his summer 2011 move from Sunderland. Playing as the …

The Evolution of Liverpool FC’s Forward Line in The Premier League Era

In these unprecedented times of lockdown, sanitizer, empty stadiums and the Netflix / Amazon Prime binge, I’ve found myself often searching for new ways to occupy both my mind as well as my body. With the remarkable closure to a triumphant league campaign by the reds, the common football fan was greeted by the unique climax to the 2019/20 Champions League. For me, this end period of the European Cup began as a slow burn that ever so gradually sparked …
Limp Liverpool Crash Out Of League Cup After Shootout Agony

Limp Liverpool Crash Out Of League Cup After Shootout Agony

Liverpool exited the League Cup at the fifth round stage after a 5-4 penalty shootout defeat to Arsenal at Anfield. A drab and forgetful 90 minutes ended scoreless and the Gunners -- through Joe Willock -- won the shootout after Divock Origi and Harry Wilson missed their spot-kicks. Jurgen Klopp elected to make a raft of changes from the Reds' Premier League victory over the same opponents on Monday night, but Mohamed Salah and Virgil van Dijk -- surprisingly -- …
Liverpool Advance Thanks To Lincoln Assassination

Liverpool Advance Thanks To Lincoln Assassination

Liverpool will play Arsenal in the fourth round of the League Cup after they thumped Lincoln City 7-2 away. A brace of goals from both Takumi Minamino and Curtis Jones, as well as further strikes from Divock Origi, Marko Grujic, and Xherdan Shaqiri sealed the much-changed Reds' passage into the next round. The game was seen as a shop window for some of Liverpool's fringe players and Shaqiri, in particular, would have done either his prospects of remaining part of …
Divock Origi: The end of a unique LFC career?

Divock Origi: The end of a unique LFC career?

Divock Origi's time at Liverpool looks to be coming to an end, following an Anfield career that has seen a mix of unforgettable highs, infuriating lows and plenty in between. The Belgian continues to be linked with a move away before the transfer window closes early next month, as Jurgen Klopp aims to get rid of dead wood in his squad. Brighton are reportedly the latest club tipped to acquire his signature - an ideal next step for Origi, allowing …
Potential Solutions To Fill The Origi Role

Potential Solutions To Fill The Origi Role

Divock Origi is a strange case. The Belgian forward has cemented himself into Liverpool club folklore with his contributions in last season's victorious Champions League campaign. The 25-year old scored a brace in the Reds' miraculous 4-0 second leg semi-final tie against Barcelona, sealing their passage to a second consecutive European Cup final. Then, in the showpiece itself, Origi smashed a low left-footed drive past Hugo Lloris to put the final nail in Tottenham's coffin, rubberstamping a 2-0 win which …
The remarkable rise of Liverpool's pre-Klopp Fab Five

The remarkable rise of Liverpool's pre-Klopp Fab Five

Jurgen Klopp is approaching five years as Liverpool manager, which is a frightening sentence to type. Where on earth did the time go? At this point in 2015, Brendan Rodgers was in his final pre-season at Anfield and the Reds were looking to bounce back from the humiliation of a 6-1 defeat away to Stoke. Little did we know at the time, FSG were flirting with Jurgen Klopp during his post-Borussia Dortmund breather, with Rodgers' time all but up. In …

Exciting Times To Be A Red - Drink It In

The date is Tuesday, 1st May, 1990. Liverpool have beaten Arthur Cox's Derby County 1-0 at Anfield. Having already wrapped up the league title a week prior following a 2-1 win over Queens Park Rangers, the Anfield faithful were preparing to witness Steve McMahon lift the trophy up in the air - for the nineteenth time. Such was the bar that Kenny Dalglish's relentless Reds set throughout their heyday in the 1970s and 1980s, winning First Division Championships were no …

Key Stats As Liverpool See Off Newcastle To Hit 99

Liverpool secured their record-levelling 32nd league win of the season to move to 99 points with a lacklustre but well-earned 3-1 win over Newcastle at St James’ Park. But what were the key stats from the game? Clinical Reds Finish With a Flourish Having scored five goals from two big chances against Chelsea, Liverpool scored three goals without creating a big chance against Newcastle.

Time for Brewster to Oust Ineffective Origi

Time for Brewster to Oust Ineffective Origi

On Thursday night, two Liverpool strikers suffered very different fortunes. It was an evening to forget for the Reds, whose lack of intensity and focus was plain to see in a rather insipid defeat to Arsenal at the Emirates. As a last throw of the dice in the second half, Jurgen Klopp turned to Divock Origi as one of his substitutes, looking for another moment of inspiration from the Belgian. What occurred was a cameo that has become far too …
