Middlesbrough vs Liverpool Preview - Key Battles

Middlesbrough vs Liverpool Preview - Key Battles

After getting only one point in the last two games, despite scoring five goals in those games, Liverpool head to the North-East to face Middlesbrough at the Riverside. The Reds last visit to Boro's home was a forgettable one in February 2009, as they lost 2-0 in a loss that cost them ground in the title race that season. Right now, Boro are struggling to show goals. With 13 goals in their 15 games they are the league's lowest scorers. …
Why Liverpool shouldn't buy in the January Transfer Window

Why Liverpool shouldn't buy in the January Transfer Window

It's still November folks, but already my twitter timeline is starting to fill up with posts discussing the potential Liverpool signings during the upcoming January transfer window. People are debating the credibility of the links & how reliable the website it's from is or isn't. Some journalists are being hailed as extremely knowledgable on all things Liverpool football club, while others are being dismissed as chancers & clickbait merchants. I'm well aware that clubs are constantly scouting & assessing players, …
Liverpool v Sunderland - Key Battles

Liverpool v Sunderland - Key Battles

After a frustrating Saturday afternoon at St. Mary's where Liverpool did everything but find the back of the net, it is back to Anfield for the Reds, as they welcome cellar dwellers Sunderland. David Moyes's men are confident after a rousing 3-0 win over Hull City, but they will definitely face a completely different proposition in Merseyside on Saturday as the Reds look to get back to winning ways. Jurgen Klopp has stressed on the fact that the performance against …
Emre Can - A Creative Force

Emre Can - A Creative Force

Anything other than a win now is considered a disaster if you're a Liverpool fan. Scanning social media after the Reds' 0-0 draw with Southampton on Saturday you would have been forgiven for thinking Klopp's men had lost. There was a lot of frustration mixed with disappointment topped off with some hysteria. It's a recipe for disaster. Of course it's disappointing not to win and maintain the lead at the top of the table but at the end of the …
Why Liverpool Could be Looking at Berardi

Why Liverpool Could be Looking at Berardi

“We watch the market all the time and we need to be prepared for different situations and one of them is injuries,”  “The Africa Cup of Nations we already knew about so we don’t need to be influenced or surprised about that but it could be a moment when we approach the market. “It’s not about how many strikers. Three strikers is enough, I think. “But when Sadio is away we will be without a winger. We do not have …
Gerrard and Torres... Can their feats be reproduced?

Gerrard and Torres... Can their feats be reproduced?

So, it has been well documented amongst commentators and fans alike that this Liverpool side, charged by the wizardry of Philippe Coutinho and the heavy mental approach of manager Jurgen Klopp, look the real deal. The reds so far this season have scored 40 goals, and after the 14 games we have had, this is the highest amount of goals at this stage we as supporters have experienced in 121 years. The swashbuckling and sometimes (always) samba dancing front three …
Lallana, Coutinho, Firmino and Mane - Firing Liverpool to the Top

Lallana, Coutinho, Firmino and Mane - Firing Liverpool to the Top

"An outsider should never know what position my players are playing. We occupy interchangeable spaces and principles not rigid positions” - Marco Bielsa. Jurgen Klopp's Liverpool were at their rampant best against Watford. It finished 6-1 but the Reds could have easily finished with double figures as the away side failed to cope with the fluidity of the Liverpool side. People, myself included, read far too much into formations. To managers they're nothing more than a blueprint for how the …
Philippe Coutinho - On The Brink Of Greatness

Philippe Coutinho - On The Brink Of Greatness

Liverpool supporters are experiencing something very special this season, the realisation of world class potential in front of their very eyes. Ladies and gentleman, this is the season that Philippe Coutinho has decided to remove the gloves and raise the stakes. To become the player supporters all hoped he could be and not just produce game changing moments, but season defining performances. For years Philippe Coutinho has shown flashes of brilliance, that you must applaud. A moment of sublime skill, …
Daniel Sturridge - There will be goals

Daniel Sturridge - There will be goals

We are 11 games in to the Premier League season. Daniel Sturridge has no Premier League goals. "We should sell him in January" "He's past it" "He's not a team player" This is how many Liverpool fans speak about Daniel Sturridge. The man who has 43 goals in just 77 league appearances for Liverpool FC. He has scored 57 goals in 102 matches in all competitions for the club. And the fans still don't sing his name. I have never …
Attackers Liverpool may target - Part 3: The Wildcards

Attackers Liverpool may target - Part 3: The Wildcards

Liverpool's impressive early season form, which sees them at the top of the Premier league after 11 games, has been largely down to just how rampant their attack has been. The summer acquisition of Southampton's Sadio Mane has really seemed to be an adrenaline shot to what was at times a pedestrian, lacklustre Liverpool front line during 2015/16. Yes, at times Philippe Coutinho, Roberto Firmino and Adam Lallana clicked and Liverpool seemed unplayable but moments like those were few and …
