The Salah Ultimatum

The Salah Ultimatum

I want Mohamed Salah to sign a new contract with Liverpool, as he’s the world's best player, performing to the peak of his powers. He is perhaps the most remarkable signing in Liverpool's history, and the success that has been garnered (during his stay), is as much to do with him as anyone else. This last week has seen Liverpool fans made aware of his contract stalemate, and the fact that a new one remains unsigned. The numbers are relatively …
Brighton 0 - 2 Liverpool - Match Report

Brighton 0 - 2 Liverpool - Match Report

In a game where Liverpool actually had slightly less possession, it was a clear case of managing the match accordingly. The Reds rarely had to stretch themselves, and short of the odd and inevitable moment, they cruised to a comfortable 0-2 victory. Brighton are in a slump, not a free fall slump, but a worrying run of form. This marks five Premier League losses on the spin for Graham Potter, and the mid-table safety they hold appears to have seen …
Thank You For Your Service

Thank You For Your Service

Watching Luis Diaz this past month has driven home the logic in reshaping this Liverpool squad. With any elite group of players, there simply has to be a moment where peak becomes decline, and strong decisions have to made. In the case of this superb Liverpool group, there are now certain players that could inevitably end up leaving, and this piece will focus on their potential destinations and the likely replacements. 1 - James Milner There’s a pretty even split …
Molby On The Spot: The Sour Grapes Gang & Slim Victories

Molby On The Spot: The Sour Grapes Gang & Slim Victories

Compared to the previous week - with victories over Leeds and Chelsea - this was a more cerebral affair, especially in terms of goals scored and how eventful the matches were; however, in the context of the season, the victory over West Ham might turn out to be more important. On Jan Molby's Anfield Index show there was plenty of topics to discuss, including: using the whole squad, while balancing the need to keep them all happy, and how that …
Post-Match RAW: Nervy Win Over Impressive West Ham

Post-Match RAW: Nervy Win Over Impressive West Ham

David Moyes taken a lot of criticism from Liverpool fans over the years - most of it absolutely justified because of his absurdly bad record against the Reds. That has started to change though, and once again, probably with valid reasons because he has done an excellent job at West Ham since returning as manager. And, on Saturday evening, his team once again caused Klopp's Liverpool a number of problems, thankfully, they managed to solve them and finish with the …
Should Liverpool loan out Curtis Jones next season?

Should Liverpool loan out Curtis Jones next season?

Curtis Jones was named in the starting XI for Liverpool’s match against Leicester City. He then didn’t make the cut for the squad in the following three games. It may seem ruthless and a little harsh from Jurgen Klopp, but when everyone is fit, the competition for a place in the matchday squad is like never before.  Someone has to miss out.  Jones is versatile but he isn’t as versatile as James Milner or Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, for example. Because of …
Klopp vs Pep - The Numbers Behind The Rivalry

Klopp vs Pep - The Numbers Behind The Rivalry

Is it the greatest rivalry in the history of English football? Jurgen Klopp versus Pep Guardiola, Liverpool versus Manchester City. Records are constantly being broken: the first and only team to achieve 100 points in a league season (Man City - 2017/18); the biggest lead ever in English football at the top of the table (Liverpool, 25 points - 2019/20); most consecutive wins in all competitions (Man City - 23, 2021/22); earliest title victory in history (Liverpool, with seven games …
Konate or Matip: Who should start next to Van Dijk for Liverpool?

Konate or Matip: Who should start next to Van Dijk for Liverpool?

We as Liverpool fans are not used to having proper squad depth. It might explain why we’re always so eager to pit players against one another and declare one the winner.  We did it with Kostas Tsimikas and Andrew Robertson earlier on in the season. Instead of marvelling at the fact we had left-back cover for a player many consider to be the best in the world in their position, there seemed to be an eagerness to declare Tsimikas was …
What is Jordan Henderson's best position for Liverpool?

What is Jordan Henderson's best position for Liverpool?

It feels as though we have this conversation every other year. Jordan Henderson will play a different role and there will be a big debate with regards to whether the new position is actually the best one for him moving forward.  There will then be a fair bit of revisionism as people highlight their opinions from a few years back as if to say told you so.  We’re seeing it now. He came off of the bench against Inter to …
Under Pressure - Classical Tactical Battle & Superb Salah

Under Pressure - Classical Tactical Battle & Superb Salah

It was another double header for the Under Pressure boys: the two-nil victory away at Inter Milan in the San Siro in the knockout stage of the Champions League, as well as the 3-1 win at home to Norwich in the Premier League. While the Reds ended up winning in Italy in the first leg, it was the pressing that was a huge part of the match, with both sides vying for the chance to dominate, but no-one ever quite …
