A year since Madrid for Klopp's Liverpool

A year since Madrid for Klopp's Liverpool

It’s been just over a year since Liverpool lifted their sixth Champions League title in Madrid. And it’s fair to say that it’s been an absolutely unbelievable year in a number of respects. On the field, Liverpool have all but secured their first Premier League title, ending the 30-year drought for the big one. But off the field, tragedy has struck the entire world, and caused untold misery and death across the entire planet. I don’t want to focus too …
One Year On: The Game Where Alisson Showed His Worth

One Year On: The Game Where Alisson Showed His Worth

Liverpool is a club synonymous with historical nights in European football and this week we looked back on the first anniversary of arguably one of the greatest of those we'll ever see. Somehow the Reds overturned a 3-0 first leg deficit against Barcelona to make it to their second successive Champion League final after a 4-0 victory. While it's hard not to think of the contributions of the likes of super sub Gini Wijnaldum, Trent's quick thinking for the corner …
Why hasn't Divock Origi kicked on from Madrid - and is Klopp to blame?

Why hasn't Divock Origi kicked on from Madrid - and is Klopp to blame?

Not only did Divock Origi's goal in the Champions League final reaffirm Liverpool's status as European royalty it also provided the impetus for this season's title bid. However, one person the goal seems to have had the least impact on is the man who actually provided that moment of magic in Madrid. There's no doubting Origi will be remembered extremely fondly by Reds' fans having scored a countless number of important goals, but, you can't help but feel he hasn't …
Jurgen Klopp's substitution pattern

Jurgen Klopp's substitution pattern

Jurgen Klopp is the best thing to happen to Liverpool Football Club for a long long time and certainly in my lifetime. The transformation of the club under the German is nothing short of incredible and has gotten him a demigod status for the Reds' faithful. During his Anfield reign Klopp has shown tactical flexibility by altering the way the team plays through the years, he is the best man manager we've seen in recent history and really one article …

Lamentable Liverpool Exit FA Cup As They Lose Again in London

A Team of Rocks Polished Into Diamonds

A Team of Rocks Polished Into Diamonds

Ask anyone who the most transformative presence at Liverpool football club has been over the last decade, and the answer will be unanimous. Jurgen Norbert Klopp. However, while it’s practically indisputable to say that the German has done the best job of any recent Premier League manager, it’s often understated exactly how he got there. Liverpool being the best football team in Europe at the moment has become normalised, in a way that no reasonable Liverpool fan could’ve expected. Everything …
Liverpool 1-0 Everton: Observations as Jones piles misery on Blues

Liverpool 1-0 Everton: Observations as Jones piles misery on Blues

Every victory over Everton is immensely satisfying, but this was particularly memorable. For once, Liverpool were underdogs, but with the burden of pressure instead falling upon Blue shoulders, they buckled, and Curtis Jones made them pay in dazzling style. Rarely has football seen a hoodoo on the scale of the Toffees at Anfield. More than twenty years have passed since their last victory in enemy territory, and even against a team cheaper than Gylfi Sigurdsson they could not banish their …
Player Ratings as the baby Reds defeat Everton

Player Ratings as the baby Reds defeat Everton

Arguably the most fun I've had watching Liverpool all season, there. The absolute state of Everton Football Club. Appoint one of the greatest managers the game has ever seen, rock up at Anfield to play against Adam Lallana's Nursery XI and STILL come away with a defeat. They might be awful on the pitch, but their commitment to banter is up there with the best in the world. Curtis Jones with the only goal of the game and what a …
Young Liverpool Dump Everton Out of FA Cup

Young Liverpool Dump Everton Out of FA Cup

Liverpool advanced to the fourth round of the FA Cup at the expense of their neighbours Everton with a 1-0 Merseyside Derby win at Anfield. A superb goal from Curtis Jones gave the much changed Reds the victory over their fully loaded local rivals, condemning recently hired manager Carlo Ancelotti to his first defeat in charge. Coming in the midst of a busy run of fixtures, manager Jurgen Klopp elected to make a raft of personnel changes, with only James …
Monterrey 1-2 Liverpool: Who Was Man of the Match?

Monterrey 1-2 Liverpool: Who Was Man of the Match?

Liverpool progress to the final of the Club World Cup after a far from convincing 2-1 win over Monterrey. The Reds left it late once again, but Roberto Firmino’s injury-time goal was enough to clinch the victory following Naby Keita’s opener and Funes Mori’s leveller. The team selected to start the game was unorthodox, to say the least, which showed in the performance. It was always going to be difficult with so many out injured or rested, all that mattered …
