Chelsea v Liverpool: Key Battles

Chelsea v Liverpool: Key Battles

After four points from the first two trips to London this season, Liverpool head back to the capital, this time to Stamford Bridge to take on a Chelsea side unbeaten in the league so far. Antonio Conte's men were in cruise control against Swansea on Sunday, but then pressed the self-destruct button, before Diego Costa rescued a point for them in South Wales. For Liverpool, it is about building some momentum and racking up as many points on the board …
Dahoud, Pulisic, and a Bit of Patience

Dahoud, Pulisic, and a Bit of Patience

The more things change, the more they stay the same. That’s such a clichéd turn of phrase. Often, with sayings such as that, meaning gets lost. What does it actually mean? If things change, surely corresponding changes occur. Something can’t possibly change without things changing alongside it, that’s the point of change. It inspires things, it creates other things, and it destroys some things. Through all of the change that’s occurred within the last twelve months at Liverpool, the undying …
Liverpool 4 - 1 Leicester City - Tactical Analysis

Liverpool 4 - 1 Leicester City - Tactical Analysis

The start of the 2016/17 season has been largely underwhelming for Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp and indeed for the clubs fans. A high octane start in the win at Arsenal was followed by a largely ineffectual performance against newly promoted Burnley. The last game before the international break saw Liverpool somewhat unfortunate to come away from a trip to Tottenham with only a 1-1 draw. Finally after the league has paused to catch its breath after the international break we …
Southampton's Famous Five and How They Rated at Liverpool

Southampton's Famous Five and How They Rated at Liverpool

It has become common knowledge on not only Merseyside, but throughout football, that since 2014 Southampton has become identifiable with being a feeder club to the Reds. Spending in excess of £95m on the five acquisitions, Liverpool have been able to prize the Saints’ top talents almost yearly, starting under then manager Brendan Rodgers. This shows no signs of coming to a halt, as yet again lightning struck twice (or should I say for the fifth time) as Liverpool delivered …
Liverpool and The Magical Myth of Net Spend

Liverpool and The Magical Myth of Net Spend

As the transfer window has finally wound down to a close and settled into an international break, Liverpool supporters have begun to reflect upon our window. As you could probably expect, the general fan opinion on our window is “mixed” at best. Certain supporters like myself are happy with where we have improved and bolstered the squad, but there are others who wish we hadn’t stopped where we did in the market. Namely people were hoping for a first team …
Why Sadio Mane will lead to away day improvement

Why Sadio Mane will lead to away day improvement

After coming to terms with an indifferent last day of the transfer window, I believe that new acquisitions are inessential, as our squad is starting to highlight its improvement by forming an identity. This new identity can be non more so defined by that of our £36m man Sadio Mane, who provides the reds with a number of counter attacking options, and these options essentially will lead to a increase in away day improvement. What we have seen from the reds …
How Klopp's Liverpool are set-up to beat Park The Bus Teams

How Klopp's Liverpool are set-up to beat Park The Bus Teams

There's been a lot of talk recently surrounding Liverpool's continuous struggles when facing teams who park the bus following on from the 2-0 defeat to Burnley which saw the Reds dominate possession but fail to carve out any clear cut chances. The Clarets are one of a handful of teams within the Premier League who look to batten down the hatches. Liverpool have failed to work out an effective formula to beat teams with a deep defensive line/low block and the opposition …
Klopp Earned The Benefit Of The Doubt

Klopp Earned The Benefit Of The Doubt

After a long, gruesome two months, the transfer window has officially been shut, the last grain of sand in the hourglass has fallen and it’s certain that Liverpool Football Club can not, and will not bolster their squad despite a series of minor injury scares to certain key players, added by one who seemed to be exiled in his own country, not to mention the evident flaws in our team. It’s been all but told. The transfer window is something …
Sadio Is Worth The Mane

Sadio Is Worth The Mane

Long before Sadio Mane officially signed for Liverpool Football Club, fans were furious with the fact that the club turned once again to Southampton for another player. His transfer fee had left supporters disgruntled and convinced that the money spent on the Senegalese would have been better off used on a healthy list of alternatives.  I wrote an article on the fume on his transfer here. Today, there’s probably not one Liverpool fan across social media who speaks ill of …
Why Klopp may favour Origi, Mane & Firmino as the Attacking Trio

Why Klopp may favour Origi, Mane & Firmino as the Attacking Trio

First things first, I know it was only Burton Albion, I know they're currently sat 18th in the Championship and I know they've conceded nine goals in just the four league games this season. I'm by no means implying, announcing or suggesting that Liverpool going to win the league because of how easy it was for the Reds to defeat the Championship new-boys.  The scoreline wasn't, isn't and never will be the most important part when analysing a game like …
