Liverpool FC: From 4-1 Humiliation To Champions Of Europe

Liverpool FC: From 4-1 Humiliation To Champions Of Europe

Define ignominious: Liverpool's 4-1 defeat away to Tottenham in October 2017. That dank autumn afternoon was Jurgen Klopp's nadir as Reds manager, at a time when the first few doubts were creeping on about this most charismatic of men. While he wasn't under the kind of pressure many managers find themselves under at low points, frustration was clear and the German was in a rare fragile position. The loss at Wembley left Liverpool sitting ninth in the Premier League, with …

Why Madrid Must Be Liverpool's Crowning Moment

Why Madrid Must Be Liverpool's Crowning Moment

This Liverpool team has to be remembered. This has been the main thought going round my head in recent weeks, during what has been one of the most emotionally draining seasons in memory. For anyone under the age of 40, I doubt I'm alone in saying a Reds side hasn't felt this special before - none have left you feeling so connected and in love with it. There have been some top class teams since the glory days, but this …

Tottenham Hotspur v Liverpool Preview - Key Battles

At long last, the international break is over. English club football is back this weekend, and how! For the lunchtime kick-off on Saturday, Liverpool will travel to Wembley Stadium to play Tottenham Hotspur, on what should have been the day of the unveiling of Spurs' new stadium. Memories of last season's visit to the national stadium, or any visit there since April 2012 are terrible, but the Reds won four in four before the break, and now head into a massive …
Why Liverpool’s Trip To Tottenham Feels Pivotal

Why Liverpool’s Trip To Tottenham Feels Pivotal

Liverpool head to Wembley to face Tottenham on Saturday lunchtime top of the Premier League and with maximum points on the board. Just one goal has been conceded, nine have been scored and Jurgen Klopp’s likeable bunch of merry men are on an early title march. It may only be the middle of September, and Saturday’s outcome will not end up defining the entire season, but it feels pivotal, nonetheless. The eventual result is clearly the most important thing, but …

Premier League 2018/19 Season Preview

After an enormously entertaining World Cup full of drama and decadence, we the football faithful have been cast into the darkness of a month without the beautiful game. This has not stopped the majority of the big Premier League clubs from making money moves in anticipation. Ahead, we preview what to expect from them this season. Arsenal Arsenal’s relatively early business in securing the tenacious Lucas Torreira (aptly auto-corrected to terrier), supplemented with the earlier additions of Borussia Dortmund’s spine, …
Is centre-back still a problem position for Liverpool?

Is centre-back still a problem position for Liverpool?

Over the last few transfer windows, Jürgen Klopp and Liverpool have significantly strengthened in a number of positions: the front line, the midfield and the defence. The costly addition of Virgil van Dijk in January was a much-needed remedy for the Reds’ leaky defence, and the big Dutchman has undoubtedly improved things at the back for Liverpool with performances looking almost instantly improved since his arrival. Whether the sudden improvement is totally down to Van Dijk’s arrival is up for …
Moss Dross - Liverpool 2 Spurs 2

Moss Dross - Liverpool 2 Spurs 2

It was the strangest game I’ve seen at Anfield in years. I left the ground utterly unable to form a coherent feeling about what I’d just witnessed and if you can manage to tear down any innate tribalism from your system and are still ravaged by several conflicting emotions, you know you’ve been to an odd match. Let’s go through those thoughts. Firstly, Tottenham did not deserve to lose that game. Oh, it would have been glorious to walk away …
