How Would Carragher Fit Into This Liverpool FC Side?

Why Van Dijk Should Win Player Of The Year

Why Van Dijk Should Win Player Of The Year

Such has been the almost unblemished ascent Liverpool have enjoyed to what increasingly looks like an inevitable league title, a lot of the suspense has been removed from the domestic season for the Reds' faithful.

Team of the Year Crystallises Liverpool's Progress

Team of the Year Crystallises Liverpool's Progress

So Paul Pogba eh? What a huge shock and weird selection to the PFA Team of the Year that was! In this essay, I will… Just kidding. Whilst I do think it’s strange he’s been selected despite an inconsistent season, I could see how getting shoehorned into a 4-3-3 formation with a clear lack of individual central midfield candidates could end up with Pogba potentially getting in the team, maybe even with less votes than both Hazard and Salah, both …

The Bizarre Case of Jordan Henderson's Daft Sending Off

The Bizarre Case of Jordan Henderson's Daft Sending Off

The Reds skipper was shown his marching orders for a stupid second yellow card at Watford on Saturday, leading to the usual deafening criticism in his direction.

Appreciating Liverpool's Future Captain

Appreciating Liverpool's Future Captain

Remember when people said that £75 million was an exorbitant fee? Liverpool have gone from a notoriously shaky defence, one which is able to instil fear into even the most resilient of Liverpool fans when they conceded a corner, to one which instils fear into event the sharpest of strikers. And a lot of Liverpool’s surge to European force is down to the arrival of the most expensive defender in world football. It wasn’t typically Liverpool’s way to fork out …
Alisson, Van Dijk & Keita: Liverpool’s New Game-Changing Spine

Alisson, Van Dijk & Keita: Liverpool’s New Game-Changing Spine

This time just over a year ago, imagine being told Liverpool would sign Alisson, Virgil van Dijk and Naby Keita in the 12 months that followed. It would have felt like the most beautiful of pipe dreams, even if Alisson wasn’t the world-renowned goalkeeper he speedily blossomed into at Roma. Great teams have great spines and Liverpool have lacked one for a rather harrowing amount of time. For too long we have had to watch the likes of Simon Mignolet, …

Liverpool Should Fear Nobody In Search For European Cup No.6

Liverpool Should Fear Nobody In Search For European Cup No.6

Liverpool just stuffed the so-called ‘best team in Europe right now’. They didn’t fluke a win against them - in fact, the eventual 4-3 scoreline was very generous on a Man City side who actually performed quite well. It was a victory that showed exactly how far the Reds have come with Jurgen Klopp in charge, and there is a growing feeling that something special is on the horizon at Anfield. Although the Premier League title has once again evaded …
