Best games of 2019/20: Liverpool 2 - 0 Manchester United

As sport across the world continues to quite rightly take a back-seat, it provides a perfect platform to revel in some of Liverpool's finest moments of the season to date. While it may only provide a small silver lining to what are undoubtedly dark days, there's not a lot better than thinking back to some memorable fixtures in this glittering season so far. Last time, I focused on Liverpool's 0 - 4 Boxing Day bullying of Leicester City, but this …

How Would Luis Suarez Fit Into This Liverpool FC Side?

While it’s practically impossible to improve on the kind of perfection that this Liverpool team has embodied over the last two years...it’s always fun to fantasise, isn’t it? So with that being said, here’s a Liverpool legend that might just fit into the greatest LFC side of our generation Liverpool's electric front three of Sadio Mane, Mohamed Salah and Roberto Firmino have cut a swathe through both English and European football over the past three seasons. In this time frame, …

Goals change narratives

There was never going to be an ideal time to pause football but doing so after a loss was always going to be torturous. Liverpool’s last outing was a 3-2 loss to Atletico Madrid. There’s no shame in losing to a team managed by Diego Simeone, even if they aren’t in the best form. The Argentine tactician has masterminded some famous victories during his time with Atleti. It isn’t necessarily the prettiest football but it is successful, sort of.  However, …
Why is Virgil Van Dijk so underrated?

Why is Virgil Van Dijk so underrated?

When does a player become too good that people start to underrate their performances? In Virgil van Dijk’s case, it was almost immediately after he moved to Liverpool. Though he went on to claim the PFA Player of the Year in his first full season at Anfield, many put that down to the hype surrounding him. The fact he was the world’s most expensive defender for a period of time meant all eyes were on him and, to the annoyance …
Why Villa away is Liverpool's biggest win of 2019/20

Why Villa away is Liverpool's biggest win of 2019/20

When Liverpool do eventually win this Premier League title, there will always be moments looked back upon as the most pivotal during the season. For me, the game that stands out more than any other is the trip to Aston Villa in November. This was long before the Reds started building an unfathomable lead over Man City at the top of the table - a time when many still viewed Pep Guardiola's all-conquering side at favourites. On November 2nd, Liverpool …
Former Everton and Manchester United star admits Liverpool

Former Everton and Manchester United star admits Liverpool "deserve this title"

Former Manchester United star Wayne Rooney believes Liverpool deserve the Premier League title and that the right decision has been made with regards to completing the current domestic league season at some date in the future.

Best games of 2019/20: Leicester 0 - 4 Liverpool

The current authority-imposed hiatus from football due to the ever-saddening Coronavirus outbreak gives us all time to reflect on a plethora of subjects. Inevitably, for those obsessed with football and the thought of Liverpool finally claiming that Premier League title, thoughts turn to some of the Reds' stand-out performances of what has been a marvellous season. There have been so many moments of magic and significance that it's impossible to say one moment trumps all others, but for me (and …

FA, Premier League and EFL confirm intentions to complete 2019/20 domestic season

The 2019/20 English football season will hopefully be completed at the earliest possible opportunity, according to the FA, the Premier League and the EFL. Liverpool - 25 points clear at the top of the Premier League table - need just six more points to clinch the club's 19th league title and their first for 30 years. However, the players and fans have had their inevitable celebrations put on hold due to the global Coronavirus pandemic. Yesterday, it was reported in …
Liverpool will be crowned Premier League champions

Liverpool will be crowned Premier League champions

Dread it. Run from it. Destiny arrives all the same. For the past week, in footballing circles, talk has centred around whether or not the 2019/20 campaign would be finished. Common sense would suggest a season not yet underway couldn’t take precedence over one that is very near completion. But there’s not much common sense in football.  Rival fans, desperate to ensure Liverpool aren’t crowned champions, have latched onto the idea that this season should be expunged from the history …
Coronavirus: A selfish-but-logical Liverpool perspective

Coronavirus: A selfish-but-logical Liverpool perspective

Liverpool were never going to win the Premier League in mundane fashion - it simply isn't their style. Even when the Reds are 25 points clear at the top of the table, when it's a matter of time until title glory is sealed, something gets in the way. The threat of World War III has loomed ominously, as have reports of an asteroid heading towards earth, but the coronavirus has emerged as the standout issue standing in between Liverpool and …
