Southampton (H): What Lessons Did We Learn?

Southampton (H): What Lessons Did We Learn?

The performance proved to be good enough, but the result was all that truly mattered against Southampton on Saturday. In our last game before the World Cup, Liverpool simply couldn’t afford to surrender any further ground in their fight for a top-four finish. Ultimately, the Reds did prevail and in a certain sense, there’s a slight disappointment the break comes at a time when a sense of momentum was being built. However, as yesterday showed there’s plenty still to work …
Lessons Learned in the Reds' Victory Over Spurs

Lessons Learned in the Reds' Victory Over Spurs

A vital three points was obtained at the Spurs stadium, as Liverpool breathed some new life into a faltering league campaign. All the headlines were naturally grabbed by Mo Salah, as a ninth goal in eight games ensured the Reds at least kept the top 4 within their sites. There were a few other standouts from the game that it was impossible to ignore as the penultimate league match before the World Cup saw all three points return to Anfield. …
By the Numbers: Robertson vs Tsimikas

By the Numbers: Robertson vs Tsimikas

Little did we know an Alberto Moreno ankle injury during a 7-0 win over Spartak Moscow would turn out to be the best thing to ever happen to Liverpool's left flank. Moreno's ankle injury made way for ex-Hull City man Andrew Robertson, who quickly impressed, and continued impressing, and eventually just took Moreno's job flat-out. Robertson's crazy pressing, endless running, and enthusiastic hustle made him a fan favourite with Liverpool fans. Since Moreno's injury in January 2018, Robertson's starting role …
Which Liverpool Players Should Enter Into The Next Phase

Which Liverpool Players Should Enter Into The Next Phase

It’s international week, and unless it’s a major summer competition, I rarely pay any attention to the results and performances. The games usually revolve around occasions of no consequence, uneven match ups, silly qualification games, and a raft of ever-changing line ups. I checked on Monday to see whether the international break was over, only to learn it hadn’t even started. Liverpool's premature halt in their season has meant a prolonged stop, and it feels longer than the entirety of …
The Silly Season is (nearly) over...

The Silly Season is (nearly) over...

Silly season(n) 1: a period (such as late summer) when the mass media often focus on trivial or frivolous matters for lack of major news stories 2: a period marked by frivolous, outlandish, or illogical activity or behaviour. There’s been a lot of silliness. It’s roughly two months since the Champions League final. A disappointing end on the pitch to what was nearly the greatest season of all time. A near tragedy off the pitch. We didn’t quite get over the line …
Be Patient, The Best Is Yet To Come

Be Patient, The Best Is Yet To Come

When Andy Robertson signed from Hull City, it took nearly half a season for him to work his way into the first team of Liverpool. Albie Moreno was outperforming his expected levels, and the fact that Virgil Van Dijk was marshalling him, meant he was thriving at left back. Robbo was seen as a cheap option (compared to the inflated Ben Chilwell), and his signing didn’t move the needle much. His cost was basically recouped in its entirety, as Hull …
Liverpool 2 - 0 Everton - Man Of The Match

Liverpool 2 - 0 Everton - Man Of The Match

Andy Robertson Maybe the best period of form of his Liverpool career. His determination in clear, his goal to drag the reds to a quadruple unwavering. The opening goal was such a relief, and just isn’t something left backs do. This left back however, is a ferocious player that isn’t accepting dropped points and the header was sensational. His delivery and aggression was good, and his ability to drive up and down the line is quite breathtaking. The world's best …

Liverpool 4 - 0 Southampton - The Player Ratings

Alisson Becker - 8.0 Some important stops allowed Liverpool to avoid any issues. The most important goalkeeper in Liverpool’s Premier League era, and irreplaceable in this side. Trent Alexander Arnold - 8.0 So impressive in his game. The elegance and natural ability he has is unmatched by any other attacking fullback. Another assist for this sensational talent, and we could be about to see him become consistently world class Andy Robertson - 9.0 There were signs against Porto (as a …
Should Kostas Tsimikas be a starter for Liverpool?

Should Kostas Tsimikas be a starter for Liverpool?

Kostas Tsimikas is going to give Jurgen Klopp a selection headache.  The Greece international impressed yet again against Arsenal as he extended his run of starts without conceding a goal to seven. In fact, Liverpool are yet to concede in a game Tsimikas has started.  The 25-year-old hasn’t put a foot wrong and many fans believe he should be a starter ahead of Andrew Robertson. The Scotland captain has had a few dodgy moments with his positioning and his end …
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 …
