What does Steven Gerrard have to do with Aston Villa to get the Liverpool job?

That seems to be the question everyone has been asking since his appointment at Villa Park.  Some of the expectations being placed on him are over the top. People want him doing well with Villa in Europe, they want him pushing for the top six, doing well in domestic cups and taking scalps in the Premier League. Of course, all of that would be ideal. But I think we need to be realistic.  Villa have a good squad. They have …
The Player Ratings: Liverpool 4 - 0 Arsenal

The Player Ratings: Liverpool 4 - 0 Arsenal

Alisson Becker - 7.5 Mistakes will come now and again, but the world's best stopper showed a commanding presence in a routine display. Trent Alexander Arnold - 9.5 Sensational. The teams primary playmaker is transcending the fullback position. Any manager in world football (club football anyway) would have this man over any other, and his domination of the right hand side is becoming an on going problem for the opposition. Two great assists. Kostas Tsimikas - 7.5 He had the …
What should Liverpool do with Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain?

What should Liverpool do with Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain?

Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain really found his groove as a midfielder for Liverpool during the 2017/18 campaign. He was a whirlwind in the middle third and he seemed to thrive in the chaos created by Jurgen Klopp’s ultra-aggressive system.  If you think back to the games against Manchester City, he was the wildcard. Pep Guardiola loves to control everything on the pitch. They couldn’t deal with someone in the middle third who could accelerate and carry the ball the way that Oxlade-Chamberlain …
The Reds' Midfield Going Forward

The Reds' Midfield Going Forward

Standards have now become so high that any dropped points can lead to dismay within the Liverpool fanbase. After a draw at home to Brighton, and a loss to West Ham, Liverpool head into this weekend with a clear need to improve. The international window has (as always) brought back an array of injury concerns. The provisional team will almost pick itself, yet the indications of the starting line up are still encouraging. As Andy Robertson joins the injury list, …
Assessing Andy Robertson's 2021/22 Form

Assessing Andy Robertson's 2021/22 Form

Andy Robertson's place in Liverpool's starting line-up is under intense scrutiny. Over the past few weeks, maybe even the past couple of months, the calls for Kostas Tsimikas to replace him have grown progressively louder. Before the season began, I'd argue that the only position up for debate in Liverpool's strongest XI was centre-forward, but with Tsimikas displaying his capabilities and Robertson failing to hit the heights, Roberto Firmino isn't the only stalwart looking over his shoulder. This should, of …

The New Sporting Director

The New Sporting Director

Any new role undertaken at a sporting team (let alone a major club like Liverpool FC), brings a certain amount a risk, especially when the role was previously engineered with brilliance. FSG have made some high profile mistakes along the way, yet the overall structure of the club is now one to be admired. As Michael Edwards gets ready to depart his role as Sporting Director, Julian Ward was immediately confirmed as his successor. As with the celebrated American TV …
