Liverpool Fans - Enjoy the Ride!

Liverpool Fans - Enjoy the Ride!

We are four games into the season and have accumulated 12 points from a possible 12 points, yet the doom and gloom merchants are out in force, criticising Jurgen Klopp’s team selection, his use of substitutions, his timing of substitutions etc. Liverpool had played their first three games of the season with the same starting eleven. In the third game of the season against Brighton Liverpool looked leggy during the game. It was perhaps understandable why Liverpool had started that …

Mo and Milly Shine - Key Stats from Liverpool's 2-1 win at Palace

Mo Salah was once again the hero as Liverpool came from behind to see off Crystal Palace 2-1. But what were the key stats from an incredible game at Selhurst Park? Comeback King Mo Seals Scrappy Win It’s quite rare that Liverpool come from behind to win a game this season. It’s equally rare that the Reds win a game when they’ve lost the xG this season.

Liverpool are into the last eight of the Champions League following a tepid 0-0 draw with Porto, seeing them through 5-0 on aggregate. But what were the key stats that emerged from the game? Pass, Pass, Pass. Don’t Shoot, Shoot, Shoot This was a game that Liverpool dominated, dictated, and played at their own tempo. The Reds played 780 passes but ended up only having 12 shots.

Is Klopp's reluctance to make changes costing Liverpool wins?

Is Klopp's reluctance to make changes costing Liverpool wins?

Editors Note: This article was written before the loss to Wolves. So we are now twenty-seven days in to 2017 and the Reds have won just one of their seven games in the New Year, drawing three (admittedly a good point at Old Trafford) and losing three. Even taking away the results from the FA Cup and EFL Cup matches, that leaves us with just two points from a possible nine since the turn of the year; by contrast, Chelsea have six …
Can the Attack Fire Liverpool into the Top 4?

Can the Attack Fire Liverpool into the Top 4?

The Liverpool Echo, more specifically James Pearce, recently published an article informing Liverpool fans that Jurgen Klopp no longer had an interest in Bayern Munich's Mario Gotze and he was happy with his attacking options moving forward into the new season. Given the Reds were looking to bring in Monaco's Kylian Mbappe and Rennes' Ousmane Dembele it does strike me as odd that after only one attacking signing coming in so far this Summer in Sadio Mane, and with Jordon …
Joel Matip - What Will He Bring?

Joel Matip - What Will He Bring?

As of 1st July 2016, Joel Matip was officially a Liverpool player. The Cameroon international will join the reds on a reported 4-year deal after agreeing a pre-contract in January to become a member of Jurgen Klopp’s renaissance. At 6”3 Matip is a real presence in the air, he won an impressive 75% of his aerial duels last season (much higher compared to Sakho 61% and Skrtel 67%, slightly beaten by Lovren with 78%) and all 3 of his goals in …

A Vital Attribute in a Liverpool Signing

Transfer-mania begins when you see every player under the sun being linked with your club and with Liverpool falling victim to the ‘2+2=5’ transfer algorithm; they are hardly shaded from the limelight. This may …
A Statistical review of LFC's 2015/16 Premier League Season

A Statistical review of LFC's 2015/16 Premier League Season

It's that time of the year again. I take a look at Liverpool's Premier League season from a statistical point of view. I did something similar for the 2014/15 season which you can find here although it's doubtful many will want to relive that season it's necessary as a point of reference. Liverpool's league campaign didn't pan out how many had envisaged. An eighth place finish, given just how poor the competition is, and a two point decrease in total …
