Observations: Heroes and Villans

Observations: Heroes and Villans

Liverpool made it through a very chaotic game to manage a 2-1 victory against Aston Villa, but it was far from easy. This was incredibly stressful watching, and it started right from the off. Jurgen Klopp will be very irritated by the manner in which the game began, however, as the Reds conceded after just 3 minutes. In the build-up to the goal, Ollie Watkins was clearly offside, but the assistant didn't flag it and play continued. About a minute …
Tyler Morton - An Opportunity To Shine

Tyler Morton - An Opportunity To Shine

Robbie Fowler, Steve McManaman, Michael Owen, Steven Gerrard, Jamie Carragher and Trent Alexander Arnold all graduated through the Liverpool academy. The success of each is part of the clubs illustrious history, and it is always a joy to see homegrown talent succeed as Liverpool players. Within any historical football club, there are times when talent struggles to emerge due to the level of competition. There has been multiple false hopes in my lifetime, but there is still excitement when any …
Trent continues to emulate Gerrard after slump in form at 22

Trent continues to emulate Gerrard after slump in form at 22

The date was November 12th, 2002, and Liverpool needed to win away to FC Basel to get through their Champions League group. Gerard Houllier's men found themselves 3-0 down before the half-hour mark had even arrived, with one player worse than anyone else on the pitch. That man's name? Steven Gerrard. He was wretched in Switzerland, spraying passes out of play and generally performing like someone devoid of all confidence and focus. A dreadful 45 minutes from Gerrard saw him …
Liverpool forward proud to level Steven Gerrard's record

Liverpool forward proud to level Steven Gerrard's record

Liverpool's Mohamed Salah equalled club legend Steven Gerrard's record of 21 goals in the Champions League with his strike against Atalanta. The Reds won 5-0 in Bergamo with Diogo Jota grabbing a hat-trick and stealing the headlines for Jürgen Klopp's side. Sadio Mané scored Liverpool's other goal. Salah scored a trademark goal, beating the Atalanta defence for speed when Liverpool broke from defending a corner. He kept his composure and finished brilliantly to nab his 21st goal for The Reds …
Thiago Influence Can Lift Jordan Henderson To Old Self

Thiago Influence Can Lift Jordan Henderson To Old Self

Jordan Henderson is an extremely versatile player, as we've seen throughout the entirety of his Liverpool career. Whether it's been as the midfield anchor, as an energetic, box to box tornado of engine room intensity or -- as we saw in his first season with the Reds, under Kenny Dalglish -- as a right midfielder in midfield four, the captain has been a consistent performer for most of the time since his summer 2011 move from Sunderland. Playing as the …
How James Milner became an unexpected Liverpool hero

How James Milner became an unexpected Liverpool hero

This week marked the five year anniversary of James Milner's arrival at Liverpool, making the switch from Manchester City on a free transfer. After weeks of speculation as to where the Yorkshireman would end up, it was former boss Brendan Rodgers who managed to persuade Milner to choose Anfield over any other potential destination. While securing Millie's services was seen as a brilliant piece of business, especially on a free deal, there was no way of knowing just how much …
The What Could Have Been Liverpool XI: Attack

The What Could Have Been Liverpool XI: Attack

There have been several players in Liverpool’s recent past who have enjoyed the best football of their careers at Anfield and inscribed themselves into the club’s history with memorable performances. Steven Gerrard, Jamie Carragher and Fernando Torres — to name but three — either spent all of their careers or, in Gerrard’s case as good as, with the Reds or — with Torres as an example — enjoyed their career-best runs of form in a Liverpool shirt. There have been …

There have been several players in Liverpool’s recent past who have enjoyed the best football of their careers at Anfield and inscribed themselves into the club’s history with memorable performances.

Where would Luis Garcia fit into this Liverpool team?

Where would Luis Garcia fit into this Liverpool team?

It’s easy to imagine how Liverpool greats from the Premier League era would fit into this current side. There’s are obvious places for Steven Gerrard, Luis Suarez, Xabi Alonso and Jamie Carragher. You could even shoehorn Philippe Coutinho back into this side, too. Maybe even Fernando Torres at a push.  But very few people would ever think to mention Luis Garcia.  However, I’m of the belief that he’s very much a Jurgen Klopp sort of player and that the German …
Why Alexander-Arnold is Gerrard's heir

Why Alexander-Arnold is Gerrard's heir

Countless players have been dubbed ‘the next Steven Gerrard’ over the years. Aaron Ramsey got the tag early on in his career, Dele Alli was supposed to be the reincarnation of the former Liverpool skipper but it wasn’t to be while there’s a strong belief that Birmingham City youngster Jude Bellingham is the long-term successor to the Whiston-born whirlwind’s crown. The truth is, however, that Gerrard’s heir is already playing for the Reds. Trent Alexander-Arnold might not be the most …
