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 …
Curtis Jones Could Be Liverpool's New 16/17 Lallana

Curtis Jones Could Be Liverpool's New 16/17 Lallana

If you polled people to ask them the words they most associate with Liverpool's midfield, the descriptions you would mostly see would be "functional, stodgy, obstinant, no-frills." While not always the easiest on the eye -- although, when asked to play progressively, they can weave pretty patterns and pass through opponents with the build-up to Roberto Firmino's goal at Manchester City last season a shining example of this -- the Reds' engine room's effectiveness cannot be disputed. With World, European …
Werner and FSG: Why It's Okay To Be Somewhere In The Middle

Werner and FSG: Why It's Okay To Be Somewhere In The Middle

It has been a while. With no football on the radar during the COVID-19 shutdown, Liverpool supporters have been reduced to reminiscing about lifting their ninteenth league title in July. With the Reds looking certain to win the Premier League at a canter this season after thirty years of hurt, the other positive developments for the club came off the pitch, in the transfer market. There has always been one player who appears to be a dead cert to sign …
Liverpool's No D*ckhead Policy Paying Dividends

Liverpool's No D*ckhead Policy Paying Dividends

Liverpool took their first tentative steps towards restarting their campaign when small groups of players took part in non-contact training at Melwood yesterday, Wednesday. What was noticeable among the players was that the usually impeccably coiffured hair of some of the squad's members -- the Brazilian duo of Alisson and Firmino, particularly -- had grown untamed without access to barbers during lockdown. Now, trying to garner any information about a person's personality based off how they keep their hair is …
No matter who's signed, the front three must stay

No matter who's signed, the front three must stay

Even though there's no football being played, and the transfer window is in limbo, the rumour mill simply doesn't stop turning. Is Victor Osimhen a target? Should Liverpool sell Mohamed Salah? Does Jürgen Klopp want to bring fellow countryman Timo Werner into his attacking ranks? There's never been a period of such uncertainty in world football, never mind when that period has led up to a transfer window. But while Liverpool continue to be linked with some of the best …
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 …
Has Shaqiri been a success at Liverpool?

Has Shaqiri been a success at Liverpool?

Jurgen Klopp has made a few signings that have come out of left field during his time as Liverpool manager. Gini Wijnaldum is certainly one that stands out in that respect, seemingly appearing to be a needless addition, not to mention one who wasn't expected to be used as an understated midfielder. The signing of Sadio Mane was also fairly surprising, believe it or not, at a time when Mario Gotze was the more fashionable alternative. In the summer of …
How Would Fernando Torres Fit Into This Liverpool FC Side?

How Would Fernando Torres Fit Into This Liverpool FC Side?

While it’s practically impossible to improve on the kind of perfection that this Liverpool team has embodied over the last two years, it’s always fun to fantasise, isn’t it? So, with that being said, here’s a Liverpool legend that might just fit into the greatest LFC side of this generation. No, replacing Roberto Firmino wouldn’t be the best thing to do for this team. He’s the engine room, and though he went on a fairly barren spell in front of …
Sabitzer The Latest Bull to be Liverpool Red

Sabitzer The Latest Bull to be Liverpool Red

Over the last year or so, Liverpool have had an exceptional record in tying down their key players to new deals. Mohamed Salah, Roberto Firmino and Sadio Mane -- among others -- have all penned new contracts to see them remain at Anfield for the foreseeable future. Absent from that list of renewals, however -- despite being just as key a cog to the Reds' winning machine as the aforementioned striking trio -- has been Dutch midfielder Georginio Wijnaldum. Since …
