Will Ismaila Sarr be Liverpool's Next Coup?

Will Ismaila Sarr be Liverpool's Next Coup?

Sadio Mane stood in the Anfield tunnel with his compatriot, Ismaila Sarr. Liverpool had just beaten Sarr's Watford 2-0 in the December chill, and the two Senegalese attackers were deep in conversation. Troy Deeney approaches, to pass on seasons greetings. Cheerfully, Mane turns to the iconic Watford skipper and exclaims: 'take care of my boy, yeah?' Sarr shuffles sheepishly as Sadio continues, like a concerned Father at parent's evening, 'he's a shy boy, shy boy'. Sadio Mane knows the talent …
Key Stats as Liverpool lose at the Emirates

Key Stats as Liverpool lose at the Emirates

Two big first half errors from the usually reliable Alisson Becker and Virgil Van Dijk meant that Liverpool slipped to a 2-1 defeat at the Emirates Stadium. This was Liverpool’s first defeat to Arsenal in over five years, having not lost to the Gunners under Klopp, and it means that Liverpool will be unable to break City’s 100 point record. But what were the key stats from the game? Misfiring Reds Unlucky or Complacent? Liverpool’s record before lockdown: 27 wins, …
In Defence Of Bobby Firmino

In Defence Of Bobby Firmino

Admittedly, Roberto Firmino ought to score more goals. But you know who else falls into that category? Every footballer who has ever laced a pair of boots up. Much has been made of the Brazilian's recent domestic goal drought at Anfield -- which, at the time of writing, extends to 18 Premier League games -- and much of it, weirdly, has come from Liverpool fans who should know better. Jurgen Klopp, pundits and ex-players -- with Thierry Henry always effusive …
Why Liverpool Should Avoid Traore Transfer

Why Liverpool Should Avoid Traore Transfer

The transfer rumour mill has been working overtime in recent weeks, and Liverpool have had their fair share of players linked with them. One of the most persistent rumours has been Wolves powerhouse Spanish winger Adama Traore being mentioned as a potential transfer target for the reigning English champions. Terrifyingly direct, with a combination of raw power and almost balletic balance, the former Barcelona academy graduate has browned the defences of Europe and England this season with his trademark dribbling …
Iconic Moments From A Season To Remember

Iconic Moments From A Season To Remember

Premier League Champions. Only we know how as a collective fanbase we've longed to hear those beautiful words. Everything about the manner in which the title was finally secured spells out poetic. Six years ago our title hopes were obliterated with a disappointing draw at Palace and a loss to Chelsea at home. Willian hammered in the final nail in the coffin with his goal thus handing the visitors a 2-0 victory and the Premier League title to City. Fast …
Liverpool Bounce Back With Unconvincing Win

Liverpool Bounce Back With Unconvincing Win

Liverpool continued their 100% winning streak in the Premier League this season with a hard fought 2-0 win over Aston Villa at Anfield. Goals from Sadio Mane and Curtis Jones gave the Reds a perhaps flattering win after a stodgy performance against their relegation-threatened visitors. After their drubbing at Manchester City, there was an expectation of a backlash but the Reds’ performance was the antithesis of that. Slow, plodding — littered with poor touches and worse passes — and playing …
Henderson and Point Scoring

Henderson and Point Scoring

Social media can be a strange place. In the wake of Liverpool being crowned champions, some fans have used this as a point-scoring opportunity. They’re trawling back through the years to find tweets calling for FSG to sell up. They’ve found plenty of tweets criticising players as well. There are probably even some who have said a bad word or two against Jurgen Klopp. However, the popular topic for this seems to be Jordan Henderson.  The Liverpool skipper has always …
Reflecting on August's error of judgement

Reflecting on August's error of judgement

"Part of me can't help but think that the side that beat us to win the league by a point have strengthened while we've stood still." That's what I tweeted on 7 August 2019. Manchester City had just broken the bank for a big-name full-back again, this time Juventus' Joao Cancelo. Earlier in the summer, they had brought in Rodri, a coveted 23-year-old who seemed set for a seamless transition into Pep Guardiola's purring midfield. On 27 July, I had …
Title-Winning Liverpool the Best for Decades

Title-Winning Liverpool the Best for Decades

Well they did it. It’s over. Liverpool were officially labelled Premier League Champions as Man City slipped up at Chelsea, losing 2-1 and giving Liverpool a 23 point lead with seven games to go. This is the first time in my lifetime I’ve seen Liverpool win the title and for many of you it’s likely either the first of your life or the first one you’re old enough to remember. And for me, this Liverpool team is unquestionably the best …
