Why Virgil Van Dijk is better than Sergio Ramos

Why Virgil Van Dijk is better than Sergio Ramos

Twitter can be a strange place. In the past, it was a place to share opinions. Now the majority use it as a platform to ridicule them. Football Twitter has seeped into normal, everyday Twitter. People want to either trigger you or they stick on a mask and start looking for easy retweets and likes for the win. Because of this, and the FUT generation, there's a lot of revisionism. Goalposts are generally moved to suit agendas, arguments or narratives. …
Liverpool Must Improve

Liverpool Must Improve

Absurd title, isn’t it? Allow me to explain... Every Premier League game these days feels like a ‘must win’ for Liverpool Football Club. Such is life when you’re effectively chasing perfection and trying to outdo this Manchester City outfit. The opening five (admittedly kind) league matches have been expertly navigated by Jürgen Klopp, yielding the perfect 15 point return that Liverpool fans dreamed of when the season began. Now though, as summer ebbs away and the Champions League kicks off …
Liverpool 3-1 Newcastle: A Tactical Breakdown

Liverpool 3-1 Newcastle: A Tactical Breakdown

International breaks can often pose a challenge for teams on a winning streak, with an unnecessary interruption to the rhythm of the side. Against Newcastle, for the opening 15-20 minutes at least, it seemed that was the case. Newcastle opted to launch balls into the wide channels, and fight for second balls, but it was an uncharacteristic mistake by the Liverpool defensive line, in an attempt to play Newcastle offside, which was then followed by an individual mistake by Alexander-Arnold, …

Is Van Dijk the Premier League's best-ever centre-back?

Is Van Dijk the Premier League's best-ever centre-back?

Has a Liverpool player ever received as much endless praise over a sustained period than Virgil van Dijk? The Dutchman has been an almost godlike figure at Anfield from the moment he arrived in January 2018, powering home a header in front of the Kop on his debut, against Everton no less. Since then, Van Dijk has transformed a leaky defence that used to concede comical goals into one of Europe's most solid back-lines. With the 28-year-old in the team, …

Four From Four - Business as Usual for Liverpool

Four From Four - Business as Usual for Liverpool

We are four games into the Premier League season, so naturally, it’s time for an irritating international break. International breaks, of course, have their benefits: being able to focus on the Ashes, the slight increase in quality in David Squires’ cartoons, managing to go a whole weekend without having some sort of stress-induced heart attack, and for those of us that actually enjoy it, the prospect of seeing your national team play. There are some benefits for Liverpool and its …
