Liverpool Bounce Back With Unconvincing Win

Liverpool Bounce Back With Unconvincing Win

Liverpool continued their 100% winning streak in the Premier League this season with a hard fought 2-0 win over Aston Villa at Anfield. Goals from Sadio Mane and Curtis Jones gave the Reds a perhaps flattering win after a stodgy performance against their relegation-threatened visitors. After their drubbing at Manchester City, there was an expectation of a backlash but the Reds’ performance was the antithesis of that. Slow, plodding — littered with poor touches and worse passes — and playing …
Why Alaba Would be the Perfect Summer Addition at Liverpool

Why Alaba Would be the Perfect Summer Addition at Liverpool

By the looks of things, Liverpool are set to undergo another quiet summer in the transfer market. The Reds' decision not to pursue a move for Timo Werner appears to be a sign of things to come, even though there is no ruling out the prospect of the odd addition coming in. One player who has been loosely linked with a move to Liverpool is David Alaba, who has been a stylish stalwart for Bayern Munich over the past decade, …
Jurgen Klopp's Tactical Conundrum

Jurgen Klopp's Tactical Conundrum

Liverpool players are often accused of being too reliant on the system they’re being deployed in. It’s used as a criticism and as a way to downplay the achievements of Mohamed Salah, Roberto Firmino and Sadio Mane.  “In other teams, they’d be nowhere near as effective.”   And while this might be true, it’s actually adding weight to the managerial ability of Jurgen Klopp. The former BVB boss is often written off as a passion merchant and what he does tactically …
What Makes The Reds So Great - Part 1

What Makes The Reds So Great - Part 1

Before the worldwide coronavirus pandemic ground the Premier League season to what we are assured is a temporary halt, Liverpool looked set to win the league title at a canter. Winning 27 out of their 29 games, the Reds -- who have beaten every other team in the league on their remarkable run -- find themselves a full 25 points ahead of second-place Manchester City and, mathematically, only need two more wins to claim the clubs’ 19th league success and …
Why Villa away is Liverpool's biggest win of 2019/20

Why Villa away is Liverpool's biggest win of 2019/20

When Liverpool do eventually win this Premier League title, there will always be moments looked back upon as the most pivotal during the season. For me, the game that stands out more than any other is the trip to Aston Villa in November. This was long before the Reds started building an unfathomable lead over Man City at the top of the table - a time when many still viewed Pep Guardiola's all-conquering side at favourites. On November 2nd, Liverpool …
David Alaba The Swiss Army Knife Liverpool Need

David Alaba The Swiss Army Knife Liverpool Need

This upcoming transfer window — whenever that will be in the coronavirus paused footballing world — could well be Dejan Lovren’s last at Liverpool. The Croat defender has proved a divisive player amongst the Reds fans since his £20M switch from Southampton in the summer of 2014 and his Anfield stint almost came to an end last summer as a move to Roma was apparently close. However, the Giallorossi failed to agree a fee with Liverpool and Lovren — who …
Dwight McNeil Liverpool's Outside the Box Backup LB

Dwight McNeil Liverpool's Outside the Box Backup LB

Looking at Liverpool's squad, it is clear to see that the Reds aren't afraid to think outside the box when developing players into new tactical roles. After all, Georginio Wijnaldum, Trent Alexander Arnold and Roberto Firmino -- three of the European Champions' most important players -- either signed for the club or played their formative years in different positions and or roles than those they now occupy in Jurgen Klopp's juggernauts. Wijnaldum, who operated mostly as an attacking midfielder -- …
The perfect Andrew Robertson replacement

The perfect Andrew Robertson replacement

Max Clark was a surprise name recently linked with a move to Liverpool. The 24-year-old came through the ranks at Hull City and replaced Andrew Robertson in the starting XI following the Scotland captain’s move to Anfield. Prior to the 2017/18 campaign, Clark spent time on loan with Cambridge United. He stint as first-choice left-back for the Tigers was short-lived and in the summer of 2018 he moved to Vitesse.  He battled against former Manchester United full-back Alexander Buttner for …
Does Robertson Need To Rein It In?

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 …
Liverpool 2-0 Sheffield United: Who Was Man of the Match?

Liverpool 2-0 Sheffield United: Who Was Man of the Match?

Liverpool moved 13 points at the top of the Premier League after a very impressive 2-0 win against Sheffield United at Anfield. The Reds controlled the game from start to finish and fully deserved the 3 points and a clean sheet. In goal, Alisson had very little to do once again, until the last 5 minutes. 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 …
