Does Robertson Need To Rein It In?

Something changed the night Liverpool lost to Real Madrid in the 2018 Champions League final. At that point, the Reds were still seen as plucky underdogs - a team who played fantastic football and were as entertaining as anyone, both for good and bad. Unless you were a rival supporter, they were easy to like, and it will have been hard not to feel some level of sympathy for them after their nightmare in Kiev. That defeat hurt and Liverpool …

Sheffield United looked certain to score, but Ollie McBurnie couldn’t get enough power on his shot, allowing our gloved Brazilian to catch the ball …

Fabinho Masterclass Completes Magical 12 Months

November 3rd, 2018. Arsenal 1-1 Liverpool. The Reds have just earned a credible draw away to the Gunners, admittedly failing to hold onto a lead but also outlining their Premier League title credentials.

Experiencing his gelling-in period at Anfield, the Brazilian was well off the pace throughout, lacking dynamism and influence at the base of …

United used to be the clear favourites in these clashes. Now they aren’t even the favourites …
