Liverpool Fans - It's Okay to Hope, This is Why We're Here

Liverpool Fans - It's Okay to Hope, This is Why We're Here

It’s not the hope that kills you. It’s never the hope that kills you. Languishing in mediocrity, having to play in Macedonia on a miserly Thursday night, with aspirations of only being relevant again, that’s what kills you. Being nowhere, existing but not prospering, that’s what kills you. Seeing your best players leave, that’s what kills you. Replacing them with players who can’t possibly fill the void, at the behest of a faulty transfer strategy and wildly obscene ego of …
Liverpool's Midfield - Still Not Consistent Enough

Liverpool's Midfield - Still Not Consistent Enough

Liverpool's unbeaten start in the league came to an end last week, which prompted old insecurities in the supporters. A lot of finger-pointing and scapegoating has taken place since. When the starting line-ups were announced there were only two ways it was going to go - the Reds don't lose, and nobody cares, or City beat us, and we all blame the midfield and Dejan Lovren. The Croatian is a topic for another day. I decided to look into how …
Oxlade-Chamberlain return to provide perfect boost for the run-in

Oxlade-Chamberlain return to provide perfect boost for the run-in

Jurgen Klopp’s recent confirmation that Oxlade-Chamberlain is ahead of schedule in his return from injury following a knee ligament injury that threatened to derail all chances of featuring during the 2018/19 campaign is, in many ways, the perfect gift anyone could’ve asked for going into the New Year. Anyone who watched Liverpool with any interest last season will know just how big a boost his return will be, with the 25-year-old in line for a return in late February or …
Dejan Lovren's deja vu

Dejan Lovren's deja vu

For many, Liverpool’s defeat to Manchester City must’ve felt like a rerun of a movie you’d seen plenty of times throughout the years. A midfield three lacking creativity, picked solely for their energy and experience of the system being deployed, was swarmed by counterparts possessing superior quality both on and off of the ball. The Reds lacked rhythm and their service to the front three was erratic at best as they struggled to string passes together and stamp their authority …
Time To Respond, Liverpool

Time To Respond, Liverpool

Thursday's narrow defeat at the Etihad was, in many ways, the perfect depiction of football. A game primed on fine margins, Liverpool could easily have extended their lead at the top of the Premier League to ten points but for a desperate goal-line clearance. Technology would reveal the ball was within just 1.12 centimetres of crossing the line and giving the Reds the lead before a customary strike from Sergio Aguero struck at the heart of Klopp's side. Things could've …
More to Mo Salah's game than goals

More to Mo Salah's game than goals

The Premier League has seen few goalscorers more prolific than Mohamed Salah. After hitting a record 32 last season, the Egyptian is going strong once again in the Golden Boot race. If he carries on finding the net at the current rate, he'll reach the 25-goal mark before the end of the campaign. The battle for top individual honours with Arsenal's Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Spurs' Harry Kane promises to be intense. Salah's ultimate contribution to Liverpool's cause will almost certainly be …
Why there’s every reason to believe Liverpool can win the league

Why there’s every reason to believe Liverpool can win the league

Supporting this Liverpool team is a real joy at the moment. After an incredible December, the mighty Reds sit at the top of the table. A healthy 7 point lead over nearest rivals City. If that kind of lead had been offered to any Liverpool fan a month ago, every fan would have bitten your hand off. Yet here we are. Destiny awaits It seems harsh that after such a tremendous end to a memorable year another serious test awaits …
Milner is this generations McAllister

Milner is this generations McAllister

Cast your minds back to the start of the 2015/16 season. Brendan Rodgers was at the helm of the club and Liverpool had just signed James Milner on a free transfer. The former Manchester City midfielder arrived for nothing having run down his deal at the Etihad but his £150,000-per-week deal raised a few eyebrows, as did the fact he was joining the Reds to play as a centre-midfielder. It was a role he'd played intermittently during his career but …
Front Runners: Can Klopps Men Cope With The Pressure?

Front Runners: Can Klopps Men Cope With The Pressure?

As Ricardo Pereira’s ridiculous rocket-strike flew spectacularly past the right hand of the flailing Ederson, Liverpool Football Club found itself seven points clear of Manchester City last Wednesday evening. Christmas had come early, and late, for the Kop. The Abu Dhabi-backed current English champions suffered a double blow as Jurgen Klopp’s band of Gegenpressing men extended their lead at the top of the Premier League table - whilst the Cityzens were also leapfrogged by Tottenham, now six points behind the …
Super Sadio Remains A Key Cog In LFC's Machine

Super Sadio Remains A Key Cog In LFC's Machine

Sadio Mané is a brilliant player in a slightly odd situation. Truthfully, our whole attack is in a somewhat strange moment, but whilst I think it’s clear that Mo Salah is an absolutely elite player, Bobby Firmino is a very important player to our team whose form could be the subject of multiple dissertations, and I recently wrote on how Shaqiri is playing an important impact sub role, but little is being made of the current form of Sadio Mané. …
