100% Liverpool Writing Their Own Script

Liverpool notched their 8th straight Premier League win of the season, their 17th in a row total and moved eight points clear at the top of the league with a late penalty against Leicester. There was a sense of palatable relief as James Milner stepped up in the 95th minute to down Leicester and give Liverpool the three points.

Southampton 1-2 Liverpool: A Tactical Breakdown

Southampton 1-2 Liverpool: A Tactical Breakdown

Liverpool's start to the season always appeared challenging. But how Liverpool would respond to this challenge would likely be the best indicator of how well the team will perform in the coming months. Playing Southampton away from home was the first potential banana skin of the season, even more so due to the 120 minutes, Liverpool had to play against Chelsea in midweek. Nonetheless, Liverpool was expected to win, perhaps not comfortably, but win as the better side. Whilst Liverpool …

Klopp Creating Liverpool Siege Mentality

Klopp Creating Liverpool Siege Mentality

Jurgen Klopp reneged on entering into the transfer market this summer to reinforce his first team. Despite links to several players, including Nicolas Pepe and Bruno Fernandes, the German elected to keep his powder dry and not add ready-made first-team options to his squad. Legitimate arguments were made that the European Champions needed to add depth to their squad in the left-back and forward line positions, in particular. But the Anfield club -- doubtlessly under instructions from their hug wielding …
Observations as the Liverpool Escape From St. Mary’s with a Win

Observations as the Liverpool Escape From St. Mary’s with a Win

Liverpool stayed perfect on the young season with a wild and topsy-turvy 2-1 win over the Saints. Liverpool were equal parts dominant and diabolical as they were lucky to go into the break ahead and then managed to make things difficult at the end despite completely controlling most of the 2nd half. After some brief positive moments early, Liverpool fell under siege to a dogged Southampton side, especially after Milner went off for several minutes with an open cut above …

Liverpool are back in action again on Saturday when they travel to play Southampton at St Mary's in the Premier League.

Lovren Exit Could Pave The Way For Prospects

Lovren Exit Could Pave The Way For Prospects

Liverpool defender Dejan Lovren has continuously been linked with a move to Italy this summer. The Croatian centre half, 30, was a rumoured target for A.C. Milan, with the Rossoneri apparently eager to lend a central defender this summer. Now, however, it appears the San Siro side have competition for the former Southampton and Lyon man's signature from their Serie A rival's, AS Roma. According to a report in La Gazzetta Dello Sport, Roma have turned their attentions towards Lovren …
Trademark Liverpool

Trademark Liverpool

I don’t know what the big problem is. “We are Liverpool, tra la la la la,” easily changes to, “We are Liverpool, all rights reserved, we’re the best football team in the land.” Adam Lallana won’t have much to do this season. Imagine the pride he would take in slapping TM’s on every road sign leading into the city.
