Everton 2-2 Liverpool: Who Was Man of the Match?

Everton 2-2 Liverpool: Who Was Man of the Match?

Where do you even start with that one? Quite simply the single worst refereeing performance in the entire VAR era. Liverpool robbed of 3 points at Goodison Park after a truly abhorrent display from the officials. Not only that, but the vile behaviour of the Everton players throughout the game looks to have inflicted serious injuries on two of best players, Virgil van Dijk and Thiago. However, despite absolutely everything going in the Blues’ favour and with their best team in decades, our unbeaten …
Analysis: Is the Liverpool press failing?

Analysis: Is the Liverpool press failing?

Liverpool's success since the appointment of Jurgen Klopp has been built around the press. Initially, it was full-throttle, relentless and tiring to watch. But as the team evolved, so did the press. Their approach was more meticulous, their approach was more intelligent and they seemed to take a more measured approach to it all. It made sense. The Reds weren't having to press as often because they now dominated the ball. However, as soon as there was a turnover they'd …

Reds step up training regime as some senior players return ahead of Everton clash

Liverpool continued their preparations for their trip to top-of-the-table Everton in the early game this coming Saturday.

The Evolution of Liverpool FC’s Forward Line in The Premier League Era

The Evolution of Liverpool FC’s Forward Line in The Premier League Era

In these unprecedented times of lockdown, sanitizer, empty stadiums and the Netflix / Amazon Prime binge, I’ve found myself often searching for new ways to occupy both my mind as well as my body. With the remarkable closure to a triumphant league campaign by the reds, the common football fan was greeted by the unique climax to the 2019/20 Champions League. For me, this end period of the European Cup began as a slow burn that ever so gradually sparked …
Is it time for out-of-form Firmino to be dropped?

Is it time for out-of-form Firmino to be dropped?

Some footballers can go through slumps in form and still look something close to their best, but others are the polar opposite, turning into pale imitations of themselves. Unfortunately, Roberto Firmino belongs in the latter category. The Brazilian has been a sensational performer for Liverpool over the past five years, overcoming Brendan Rodgers' bizarre use of him to become one of the world's leading attackers. When Firmino has been on-song, he has been the epitome of everything great about this …

Two New Signings, Two Statement Victories - September 2020, The Month That Was

News broke late of an evening that Liverpool had agreed a fee for Spanish midfield wizard Thiago Alcantara, and while we had long expected Thiago Thursday we instead got Thiago Friday. And fucking hell, it was fun. But before we start drooling over him again, let's go back to the start of the month. Liverpool got themselves ready for …

Impressive Liverpool Put Gunners To The Sword

Impressive Liverpool Put Gunners To The Sword

Liverpool made it three Premier League wins from three with a convincing 3-1 win over Arsenal at Anfield. Despite going behind to an Alexandre Lacazette goal, the Reds rallied and sealed the win with strikes from Sadio Mane, Andrew Robertson and Diogo Jota to seal a deserved win, which, on another night, could have been by a far bigger margin. From the outset, it was clear that Arsenal’s playbook would mirror the one they employed last season and in the …
