Liverpool's Strongest Team

Liverpool's Strongest Team

We all know what Liverpool's strongest team is, well we all like to think we know what Liverpool's strongest team is anyways. If you go through the full squad, including those who are out on loan and those who are currently injured Liverpool have the potential to have one of the strongest starting elevens currently in the Premier League. They now also have back up in positions they never had before, mainly in the left back and the right back …
A New Goalkeeper or Bust for Liverpool?

A New Goalkeeper or Bust for Liverpool?

First choice Liverpool 'keeper misses a game and his understudy fails to perform in his absence. Strong sense of Deja vu here isn't there? December 2014, Brendan Rodgers "indefinitely" drops Simon Mignolet after a string of errors and is replaced by Brad Jones. The Australian comes into the side and aids United as they defeat Liverpool 3-0 at Old Trafford. Diving completely the wrong way for the United opener he looked like that lad you'd stick in goal because he …
Three Liverpool Problems Even Jurgen Klopp Cannot Fix

Three Liverpool Problems Even Jurgen Klopp Cannot Fix

For many Liverpool supporters the arrival of Jurgen Klopp was a godsend. The charismatic and passionate German has been a breath of fresh air on Merseyside and in English football.  He has rejuvenated Liverpool and masterminded incredible away wins at Chelsea and Manchester City. He even made Dejan Lovren look not-so-terrible. But as much as we all swoon over Klopp's excellence, he is in fact not a god. He faces the same challenges as Brendan Rodgers did. Yes he is …
Liverpool Need A New Man Between The Sticks

Liverpool Need A New Man Between The Sticks

Statistics can tell you a number of things and sometimes can cloud fans judgements on players, some players pass completion rates are incredibly high, but if they only pass safe short passes into the more gifted players, is this really telling you the full picture?  Similarly, with Simon Mignolet, he has had 5 clean sheets in the Premier League this season, and has conceded only 19 goals in 16 games in the league, his shot saved to goal ratio is …
Slapstick Simon: an Anfield Thriller

Slapstick Simon: an Anfield Thriller

"I enjoyed this game. I enjoyed this atmosphere with my whole body. Thank you." - Jurgen Klopp
2 balls dropped. 2 points lost. Simon Mignolet is back. Rumours of a new deal for the Liverpool Number 1 have surely been put on hold after another woeful display at Anfield. After public praise from Jurgen Klopp for his "quality" and "intelligence", Mignolet showed neither in a calamitous performance that is sure to force FSG's hand closer to the chequebook. …
Observations from a disappointing draw against WBA

Observations from a disappointing draw against WBA

It has been a weird season. We are midway through December, sixteen games into the season, and Watford currently sit two places and a point above Liverpool ahead of their match next weekend. A point at home against West Bromwich Albion shouldn't be celebrated but given the circumstances, it's a good point. How important could it be come the end of the season? Despite salvaging a draw from the jaws of defeat, you can't help but feel pissed off at …
Klopp Carving Out Results With Rodgers Tools

Klopp Carving Out Results With Rodgers Tools

Does He Really Need New Pliers? When interviewed following his third from last game in charge of Liverpool, Brendan Rodgers identified a lack of quality ‘tools’ as the reason for his poor managerial record in 2015. “Give me the tools, I’ll do the work” were his exact words in the aftermath of September’s 3-2 victory over relegation-threatened Aston Villa. There was a particular implement in question: the brilliant Daniel Sturridge, whose brace had just extended Rodgers’ doomed reign into what …
Should Liverpool Replace Simon Mignolet?

Should Liverpool Replace Simon Mignolet?

The average sandwich Liverpool have many recurring problems that previous management failed to address. As a team we're grossly misbalanced. Many frailties have been overlooked. We're buying potential and not supporting them with talented players, instead we're heaping the pressure on their shoulders and asking them to do something special. Average, functional players sandwiched in-between potential. We're in a position at the moment in which every other week we as fans are debating about why a position in the team …
Everton v Liverpool: 3 Things To Think About

Everton v Liverpool: 3 Things To Think About

Ahead of the Merseyside derby this Sunday, Liverpool head into the historic tie under immense pressure. Unlike previous encounters, the Reds aren't the favourites. Brendan Rodgers has led the squad through a hail of poor performances and is only just holding onto his job, Daniel Sturridge has the weight of a club on his dodgy ankles and a loss could be the catalyst for drastic change at England's most successful, and currently most suffering, club. Here are three things to …
Shaky Simon Mignolet Reverts To Nervous Performances

Shaky Simon Mignolet Reverts To Nervous Performances

“Simon, are you sometimes over-thinking stuff?” Those were the words uttered by Mrs Mignolet last season as she attempted to resolve her then-fiancé’s form. Sure enough, after his wife’s inspirational chat, Mr Mignolet’s displays improved. The once erratic goalkeeper went back to basics and looked a different player in the second half of the season. But now we’re back at square one, and I doubt there’s much Mrs Mignolet can do this time round. Much like the optimism in pre-season, …
