Observations from the Liverpool v Burnley Stalemate

Observations from the Liverpool v Burnley Stalemate

This was always going to be a difficult game, especially considering Burnley's solid away form this season. It ended up as a stalemate, with Liverpool dropping two points. The key takeaways - Team News Klopp was expected to ring in the changes for the game vs Burnley, and he confirmed the same during his pre-match press conference. So it was not surprising to see the number of changes, but the intriguing aspects were the return of Coutinho and a start …
Liverpool 1 - 1 Burnley: Anfield bears witness to another draw

Liverpool 1 - 1 Burnley: Anfield bears witness to another draw

Competition: Premier League Date: 16/9/17 Venue: Anfield September has been a sobering month for Liverpool fans. Gone are the exuberant days of August and with them, our care-free attitude to just enjoying our Redmen attacking, scoring, and attacking again. September has opened our eyes to those defensive concerns which we knew were always there. In August, we were able to sweep those matters under the proverbial rug. September, however, seems to be that better friend. Unlike August, she won’t let …

Liverpool v Burnley - Bouncing back with three points

The Details Competition - Premier League Venue - Anfield Referee - Roger East Date & Time - September 16th, 2017 @ 15:00 BST Form Do I really need to mention last weekend’s game at the Etihad? We all know the team collapsed and lacked leadership after going a man down. The lack of game-management from the manager and the “leaders” on the pitch left me infuriated afterwards. Let’s hope the team grow from the experience. What doesn’t kill you, makes …

Liverpool v Sevilla Preview - Time to heal the wounds

The Details Venue - Anfield Referee - Danny Makkelie (Netherlands) Date & Time - 13th September 2017 @ 19:45 BST It’s amazing the effect that football can have on you. In the aftermath of Saturday’s collapse at the Etihad Stadium, it has taken me the best part of two days to finally gather myself enough to write this match preview. I guess “deflated” is the best way to describe how I’ve felt since Sadio Mané collided with Ederson and the rest of …
Liverpool's Transfer Window: A Missed Opportunity

Liverpool's Transfer Window: A Missed Opportunity

What a curious transfer window; after snapping up Robertson, attempting to convince Virgil Van Dijk to join, and registering an interest in Naby Keïta, the Liverpool transfer front went silent. Then, suddenly after trouncing Arsenal, Michael Edwards and his team sprung into life, wrapping up a seemingly dead deal in securing the services of Naby Keïta for the coming season, on a bargain transfer, before moving onto Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain shortly afterward. With a day to go, expectations of Lemar and …

The Details Venue - Anfield Referee - Martin Atkinson Date & Time - Sunday, August 27th @ 16:00 BST Form Liverpool come into this game after successfully navigating a potential banana-skin of a Champions League playoff with Hoffenheim of Germany.

Analysing Gini Wijnaldum's Disappearing Act

Analysing Gini Wijnaldum's Disappearing Act

After having a fairly decent debut season and scoring numerous meaningful goals, Gini Wijnaldum has developed a decent reputation amongst Liverpool fans thus far. Gini's first season playing under Klopp resulted in a return of 6 goals and 9 assists in the Premier League as well as strong performances in the so-called 'big games' against Liverpool's title rivals. However, although the season is just a few games old, his start to the 17/18 campaign hasn't been good enough and it's …
Andy Robertson - The Solution At Left-Back?

Andy Robertson - The Solution At Left-Back?

So we’re all in agreement then? Andy Robertson is the best left-back who ever lived and will go on to win the Ballon D’or for Liverpool? Yes? Yes. Good. Glad that’s cleared up. In all seriousness, I didn’t expect to see Robertson just yet. He hadn’t played much for the Reds in pre-season and Klopp had previously indicated that he was still settling in. I figured that maybe he'd return after the international break, which was why it was a …
Joe Gomez: Liverpool's Most Important Full-Back

Joe Gomez: Liverpool's Most Important Full-Back

Five young full-backs. Like a team within a team, they all have their own unique strengths and weaknesses. Trent Alexander-Arnold has been absorbing most of the accolades and Moreno has been the whipping boy as usual. Robertson’s crosses against Palace drew audible ooh’s and ahh’s from the crowd and Jon Flanagan regaining a squad position is great to see. But when the story of the 2017-18 season is written, it may be Joe Gomez that has the biggest impact in …

The Details Venue: Anfield Date & Time: August 23rd, 2017 @ 19:45 BST Form Hoffenheim got their Bundesliga campaign off to a winning start on Saturday, with a 1-0 home victory against Werder Bremen. Now they will be hoping to recuperate before their visit to Anfield as they aim to prolong their maiden visit to the top table of European football. Julian Nagelsmann will almost certainly have many, many more years to look forward to in the Champions League but …
