Daniel Agger - Another Great Dane

Daniel Agger - Another Great Dane

This past week or so, I’ve seen the form of Joël Matip both questioned and praised. His performances this season have been largely tremendous, with the singular poor outing against Brentford (and an inspired, future red, Ivan Toney). The whole Liverpool side were somewhat shell shocked that day, and every player will occasionally have an off day, so any real criticism is very harsh. The consequence of his usual great form will always see him compared to other defensive players, …
Is this the best version of Mohamed Salah?

Is this the best version of Mohamed Salah?

Mohamed Salah might be playing the best football of his career right now.  The 29-year-old has eight goals and two assists in eight outings this term. There’s an air of inevitability about him in general. It doesn’t feel as though if he’s going to score, it is more of a matter of when he’s going to score. No matter what happens, it just feels as though he’s going to find the back of the net.  The penalty miss against AC …
How To Approach Manchester City

How To Approach Manchester City

This Champions League week is now at an end, and the approaching weekend games offer huge excitement for one of its match day 7 fixtures. Manchester City pay a visit to Anfield this week, in what will be a titanic match-up between the top two sides in England of recent times. How Liverpool will cope after drubbing Porto in the week is a question with varying answers. City lost a huge FFP linked tie to fellow big spenders Paris Saint …
The Liverpool Players In Their Final Days

The Liverpool Players In Their Final Days

The final few embers of the Brendan Rodgers regime still remain, with Jordan Henderson, James Milner, Joe Gomez and Divock Origi now rotation pieces of varying quality, within Jürgen Klopp’s squad. As part of any management era, there is always incoming failures that have a shelf life. Under the Brendan stewardship, the hits were few, and the misses often spectacular. This past summer saw a few more players moved on, in what is commonly a summer of attempting to release …
The Tsimikas & Robertson Rivalry

The Tsimikas & Robertson Rivalry

Competition is a good thing, and a comfortable player can be a potential risk in critical situations. To have two players vying for the same position can add intensity, urgency and quality to either players' performance. The ability to rotate also allows a few vital components, aside from fears of being dropped raising a player's game. The need to rest players (especially those that are flogged during international breaks) can maintain a level of freshness and thus added dependability throughout. …
Is Kelleher too good to be a back-up goalkeeper?

Is Kelleher too good to be a back-up goalkeeper?

Liverpool might soon have a problem with Caoimhin Kelleher. If he keeps on developing at the rate he currently is, he’s going to be too good to be a back-up.  He’ll want a season as a starter and who can blame him?  Kelleher needs it if he’s to make that step up and fulfil his potential.  After all, It is one thing coming in and impressing in the odd game, but it is another playing on a regular basis under …
Klopp’s Campaign Management

Klopp’s Campaign Management

Stubbornness, single mindedness, arrogance and an absolute inability to adjust one's methods, can be the downfall of even the best managers in modern football. In recent years we have seen the likes of Arsene Wenger and Jose Mourinho, unable to adapt to the modern needs of Premier League football, with both departing the division at relative low points. The signs are often evident, the fall off from brilliance usually gradual, but the reason for the decline always consistent. Football changes, …
Daniel Sturridge - Truly Elite

Daniel Sturridge - Truly Elite

There’s so many brilliant strikers that have worn the Liverpool shirt in the modern era. Young fans could be imagined replicating their goal scoring heroes of the past: Ian Rush, John Aldridge Robbie Fowler, Michael Owen, Fernando Torres and Luis Suarez topping the list of spectacular names. All of the above varied from elite to world class, and many arguments will have been held over the years, about who was the best in their prime. Prime years for any striker …
The World Class Upgrade

The World Class Upgrade

Under the Roy Evans regime, Neil Ruddock, John Scales, Phil Babb & Mark Wright were the options in defence. They were the central defenders in the mid nineties that saw a period of great attacking football from the reds. The likes of Robbie Fowler and Steve McManaman were part of an exciting line up that fell short of major honours, often let down by the sides defensive deficiencies. Robbie Fowler certainly underachieved (in terms of silverware) in his career, despite …
