The Evolution of Liverpool FC’s Forward Line in The Premier League Era

The Evolution of Liverpool FC’s Forward Line in The Premier League Era

In these unprecedented times of lockdown, sanitizer, empty stadiums and the Netflix / Amazon Prime binge, I’ve found myself often searching for new ways to occupy both my mind as well as my body. With the remarkable closure to a triumphant league campaign by the reds, the common football fan was greeted by the unique climax to the 2019/20 Champions League. For me, this end period of the European Cup began as a slow burn that ever so gradually sparked …
Could Suarez be Liverpool's modern-day Litmanen?

Could Suarez be Liverpool's modern-day Litmanen?

Life comes at you fast as a footballer, with your reputation never too far from taking a battering. One minute you can be the flavour of the month, earning an infinite amount of praise, and the next you can be a washed-up has-been who has little else to offer. Luis Suarez finds himself in that very position, having experienced a tough season at Barcelona that ultimately looks like sealing his exit from the club. Only six years ago he was …
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 …
How The Power of Anfield Helped Liverpool Crush Barcelona

How The Power of Anfield Helped Liverpool Crush Barcelona

Even before kick-off, it was apparent that the Anfield crowd was ready. A healthy crowd gathered outside the stadium -- as is customary on big European nights -- to soundtrack the team's bus' entrance, defiantly lifting their player's morale when it appeared to all that they were flogging a dead horse. 3-0 down to Barcelona from the first leg, Liverpool -- who were shorn of 2/3's of their potent attacking trio, Mohamed Salah, and Roberto Firmino -- were given a …
Where would Steven Gerrard fit into this Liverpool team?

Where would Steven Gerrard fit into this Liverpool team?

While it's practically impossible to improve on the kind of perfection that this Liverpool team has embodied over the last two year... it's always fun to fantasise, isn't it? So with that being said, here's a Liverpool legend that might just fit into the greatest LFC side of our generation. Steven Gerrard. And before we get started, I don't think it's unfair to say that Captain Fantastic as he was so often referred to wouldn't fit into any of the …
Mohamed Salah or Luis Suarez?

Mohamed Salah or Luis Suarez?

Only Alan Shearer has scored more goals than Mohamed Salah in 100 Premier League appearances for a single club. The Liverpool forward has 70 goals for the Reds in 100 games. A remarkable return given he's a wide forward. He's managed to eclipse the likes of Ruud Van Nistelrooy, Thierry Henry, Sergio Aguero and Fernandes Torres. And yet people still underrate the Liverpool No.11 and overlook what he's doing for Jurgen Klopp's side. Since the inception of the Premier League, …

How Would Luis Suarez Fit Into This Liverpool FC Side?

While it’s practically impossible to improve on the kind of perfection that this Liverpool team has embodied over the last two years...it’s always fun to fantasise, isn’t it? So with that being said, here’s a Liverpool legend that might just fit into the greatest LFC side of our generation Liverpool's electric front three of Sadio Mane, Mohamed Salah and Roberto Firmino have cut a swathe through both English and European football over the past three seasons. In this time frame, …
Sterling has nobody to blame but himself...this time

Sterling has nobody to blame but himself...this time

Let's dispel a myth to begin with. The general consensus is that all Liverpool supporters detest Raheem Sterling, never forgiving him for the manner in which he left in 2015. That is well wide of the mark. I don't just speak for myself when I say I've got plenty of time for Sterling, even though he handled his exit badly after that depressing 2014/15 season. Not only a world-class footballer, the 24-year-old has done lots of good off the pitch …
How Hungry Are Liverpool?

How Hungry Are Liverpool?

The Champions League final in Madrid was an incredible night and was certainly the best way to cap off a fantastic 2018/19 season. I was on the streets of Liverpool with hundreds of thousands of others the following day to witness Jürgen Klopp and his team parade the famous trophy and bask in the glory they’d earned. After the heartbreak of the previous year’s final in Kyiv, and after just falling short in the Premier League title race despite racking …
Don't You Forget About Mo

Don't You Forget About Mo

A question that often gets asked of Liverpool fans is, "Who do you feel is the most underrated player in the squad?". You see the same sort of names provided, more often than not: Gini Wijnaldum, Joel Matip, even Andy Robertson before his excellent 2018/19 season. A player who I feel deserves the tag of most under-appreciated within the Reds' roster, though, is Mohamed Salah. Some of you probably think I'm mad to suggest Mo: 2017/18 PFA Player of the …
