Who Are Liverpool’s Premier League Competitors This Year

Who Are Liverpool’s Premier League Competitors This Year

For the last few years, Manchester City would be the early season team compared to Liverpool in the Premier League title race. This early season looks like a one horse race (Arsenal will inevitably fall away), and the Reds currently languish within mid table mediocrity, though thankfully not as lowly as their blue neighbours, just yet anyway. Manchester City are the club with huge domestic success during Klopp’s Anfield stay, but this could now be the moment where City have …
Is it time for Trent Alexander-Arnold to play in midfield for Liverpool?

Is it time for Trent Alexander-Arnold to play in midfield for Liverpool?

Desperate times call for desperate measures, so is it time for Liverpool to give Trent Alexander-Arnold the midfield role he once shone in? Another week, another bleak feeling of emptiness as a Reds supporter. Last Saturday's 2-1 defeat at home to Leeds was arguably the nadir of the season to date, as the grim results keep coming at a relentless rate. Liverpool have had major issues in various areas of the pitch throughout the campaign, from individuals looking out of …

Does Jurgen Need To Switch To A 3-4-3 Formation

With the Liverpool team's on-going issues, there’s also going to be endless antidotes to solve the problems at hand. To start from the top (then all the way down), below probably represents all the pieces that need change, apparently: The Ownership - FSG The Sporting Director - Julian Ward The Chairman - Tom Werner (FSG) The CEO - Billy Hogan The Manager - Mr Klopp The Assistant Manger (Author) - Pepijn Lijnders The Head Of Medical Services -  Andrew Massey …
Liverpool vs Napoli: Full XI or Kids?

Liverpool vs Napoli: Full XI or Kids?

Liverpool's 3-0 win over Ajax on Wednesday night clinched their spot in the knockout round of the UCL. This puts Liverpool in a familiar position: one game left to play, with nothing on the line. In the extremely rare event that Liverpool beat Napoli by 4, Liverpool would finish first in Group A. However, in any other result, the final table standings remain unchanged, with Napoli on top of the group, and the Reds in second. This brings up one …
Liverpool 1 - 2 Leeds - The Postmortem

Liverpool 1 - 2 Leeds - The Postmortem

Decline can be gradual, and decline can usually be hard for supporters to take, but any sporting decline requires reaction from those tasked with running said sporting entities. On Saturday night we saw Liverpool FC run 11km less than their opponents (Leeds United), as reported by Anfield Index’s own Simon Brundish. I’m not a stat guy, but I’m sure there are a number of horrendous statistics that lead to the notion we all believe, the Reds are in full blown …
Liverpool 1 - 2 Leeds - Premier League Player Ratings

Liverpool 1 - 2 Leeds - Premier League Player Ratings

Alisson Becker - 5.0 Had to once again produced wonders, especially at 1-1. Was badly let down for Leeds' goal, and showed great character to keep his side in the first half. Was again busy with hands and feet in a rather frenetic second period. Maybe could have done better for the winning goal. Trent Alexander-Arnold - 4.0 Was decisive in his delivery if not a touch nervous in defence through the opening stages. Looked dangerous in transition without much …
Darwin Núñez & His Importance To This Team

Darwin Núñez & His Importance To This Team

I once visited the Amsterdam Arena many many years ago on a youth football trip. We were due to play some games, take advantage of the low drinking age (16 years old back in 1996), and generally have a fun filled trip abroad. The Johan Cruyff Arena is a wonderful venue to visit, and Ajax are a historical European side, much like our own Reds. On Wednesday night Liverpool ran out winners, and for me it was another huge step …
