Wave-Riding Reds Finding New Ways To Win

Wave-Riding Reds Finding New Ways To Win

I know it’s popular to mock him and just generally hate him, you know, because he played for Man United for his entire career and naturally that brings animosity, but Gary Neville is a really strong pundit. His points are almost always thought out, insightful and intelligent and if nothing else, watching him full on lose it when criticising Man United or Arsenal has been a joy. And I was mulling over my thoughts on the topic of this article, …
Liverpool 3-1 Manchester United: A Tactical Breakdown

Liverpool 3-1 Manchester United: A Tactical Breakdown

There is no other game which manages to unnerve me like playing Manchester United does. Irrespective of form or quality, as matchday approaches, I fill with dread. On the morning of a match, I can barely eat. Perhaps it's the years of torment at school after losing, and unexplainable events which always seem to favour United that has caused this. Nonetheless, despite Liverpool's greatest ever start to a Premier League season, and mere minutes before the teams were announced, all I …
Why Liverpool Fans Are Underrating Mo Salah

Why Liverpool Fans Are Underrating Mo Salah

I happened to glance upon a Twitter poll last week asking who Liverpool’s best signing had been during Jurgen Klopp's tenure. I answered with my gut feeling, and along with approximately 60 per cent of the voters, opted for Virgil van Dijk, who led the way comfortably. I saw Mo Salah’s name loud and clear in front of me but didn’t once consider picking him ahead of the towering Dutchman. The last week has shown how ridiculous it is that …

Where does Mo Salah sit in the history of Liverpool?

Where does Mo Salah sit in the history of Liverpool?

Last season, before a ball had been kicked, Liverpool signed Mohamed Salah for around £36 million from Roma, in a move that was seen as some well-needed reinforcement at the top of the pitch. Coming off the back of Liverpool’s year almost falling off a cliff with the loss of form and Sadio Mane during the 2016/17 season, many supporters welcomed the competition for places and backup that Salah brought to the table. “At least we’ve got a bit more …
Liverpool FC and Big Chances

Liverpool FC and Big Chances

Big chances are a crucial part of any Premier League team’s season. They help to differentiate the quality of a team. It expands nicely on the basic idea of xG that not all shots are equal. Bobby Firmino’s tap-in from a yard against Spurs was a better quality chance than when Denis Odoi shot from the halfway line against us for Fulham. So by looking at how many quality chances Liverpool are creating, and more importantly who is creating them, …
Key Stats as Salah seals European progression for Liverpool

Key Stats as Salah seals European progression for Liverpool

You've got me on key stats for this one folk, I apologise. I'm not smart, handsome or nuanced as Tom but I'll do my best to leave you interested. I checked with Gags over whether I could do statistics on the percentage of Alisson's hair follicles that are perfectly placed (99.87%) or how many times I felt my arse cheeks clench during the game (28), but he told me he'd prefer stuff that relates to the football a little more, …
Liverpool soar above Napoli to continue Champions League Run

Liverpool soar above Napoli to continue Champions League Run

This was Liverpool. Nail biting, mind boggling Liverpool. A night where their European fate hung in the balance, Jurgen Klopp's side flew to new heights as they soared to a 1-0 win and emerged into the knockout stages of the competition. In truth, this should've been a far healthier scoreline than it was. Sadio Mané missed a host of opportunities while Roberto Firmino remained off his best, struggling to string things together with the formidable Mohamed Salah. However, it could …
How well is Jurgen Klopp rotating his Liverpool squad?

How well is Jurgen Klopp rotating his Liverpool squad?

No Salah, no Firmino and no Mane. The seven changes Jurgen Klopp made to his starting eleven at Turf Moor raised a considerable number of eyebrows last Wednesday, not least from myself. But subsequently, having collected six points from two potentially tough away fixtures against Burnley and Bournemouth, as part of a gruelling festive schedule are we right to think our boss is rotating the squad to perfection. For many years this is the one factor which has prevented very …
Top, But Liverpool Have A New Type Of Battle To Face

Top, But Liverpool Have A New Type Of Battle To Face

And with a single swish of a head the whole path of the 2018-2019 season changes course. Not many Reds like David Luiz and with good reason. His two spells at Chelsea, his less than exemplary performance against Germany in the 2014 World Cup and his likeness for winning a dubious free kick means there are few who hold him in high regard. Not so today. Today I could hug him until he complains to the relevant authorities. What a …
