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 …

Liverpool v Hoffenheim 2nd Leg Preview - Finishing the Job

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 …
Liverpool 1-0 Crystal Palace: A Tactical Breakdown

Liverpool 1-0 Crystal Palace: A Tactical Breakdown

After a late Watford equaliser, Liverpool's Premier League campaign was yet to really get going. A tie with bogey-team Crystal Palace hardly eased nerves, especially as reports of Coutinho's continued unhappiness, and rumours of a knock to Sadio Mané had fans on edge. Nonetheless, the performance was distinctly different to the Champions League first-leg against Hoffenheim, and the Watford match too. Yet, what we also saw were some themes and consistencies, that we may see continue to pop up throughout …

Liverpool 1 - 0 Crystal Palace: Player Ratings

Liverpool 1 - 0 Crystal Palace: Player Ratings

Liverpool huffed and they puffed but in the end, Sadio Mane's first Anfield goal of the season ensured that the Reds took their first Premier League win of the season. It wasn't pretty for large parts of the game, as a sluggish Liverpool threatened to be stifled out of the game by a disciplined Palace, but a stroke of good fortune meant that the ball fell in Mane's path for him to calmly slot past Wayne Hennessey. Here are the …
