Klopp's Resilient Reds?

Klopp's Resilient Reds?

Brittle, frail, delicate, on the brink of collapse and similar to a Creme Brulee with that soft centre are just a few of the creative ways the Liverpool defence has been described over the years. They're not wrong either, not since the days of Rafa Benitez and Kenny Dalglish's second stint as Liverpool manager have the Reds shown any sort of resiliency when it comes to defending. You can quote the number of clean sheets the team have had all you …
Taking Risks Key to Liverpool's Success This Season

Taking Risks Key to Liverpool's Success This Season

Liverpool’s start to their 2016/17 Premier League campaign has, with pinpoint accuracy, summed up what fans have come to expect from Jurgen Klopp’s reds – inconsistency. A breath-taking attacking performance that was enough to see off top four rivals Arsenal was followed by a toothless display away at Burley and, unfortunately, it is from the latter fixture that most lessons can be learnt. Liverpool’s defeat at Turf Moor highlighted the importance of a back-up strategy. Against Arsenal, Klopp’s favoured gegen-pressing …
Who is Liverpool's Leader?

Who is Liverpool's Leader?

There are two types of leadership. First would be a leader who leads by default. He’s the type of personality that is allowed to lead or dictate only by his rank. Then you have, in my opinion, the true leader. One who leads and is followed through merit by gaining the utmost respect from his colleagues, teammates, and even a ranking officer.  And you need that on the pitch. You need someone who would only need to stare at you, …
Premier League Proven isn't always a negative

Premier League Proven isn't always a negative

The Transfer Window has been officially open for nearly a month now and Liverpool's two biggest signings have been players from within the Premier League. Both Sadio Mane and Gini Wijnaldum arrived at Anfield for a combined £55 Million. Most Reds fans must have a strong feeling of deja-vu about such deals. Since Fenway Sports Group bought the club Liverpool have spent over £200 Million on Premier League proven players with varied success. Despite the questionable success of this tactic …
Henderson - Will He Be Back?

Henderson - Will He Be Back?

To Infinity and Beyond… I feel I’ve let our captain down.  His story is similar to that of Woody in Toy Story.  The arrival of Buzz Lightyear, coupled with an injury-ravaged campaign has meant that Jordan Henderson has been pushed to the back of my mind.   In this case, our Buzz Lightyear may well be Bobby Firmino in his debut season, a rapidly developing Emre Can or an ever-dangerous Philippe Coutinho.  Heroes have been emerging at Anfield over the …
Liverpool Need To Convert Leads into Victories - It's Not Easy

Liverpool Need To Convert Leads into Victories - It's Not Easy

If it happens once you can pass it off as being normal. You're told that It happens to everybody and not to worry about it. You nod in agreement at the reassurance being offered. If the same problem continuously happens then you have two choices; bury your head, pretend it's normal and carry on nodding or actually acknowledge there's an issue and look to rectify it. Liverpool have a few problems, too many to state and if you attempted to …
Daniel Sturridge is Priceless, Selling Him would be Foolish

Daniel Sturridge is Priceless, Selling Him would be Foolish

In Premier League history Daniel Sturridge ranks fourth when you look at goal involvement per minutes on the pitch. Yet there are a large portion of Liverpool fans that want to sell him and he's nowhere near his peak. Since the inception of the Premier League in 1992 many great strikers have graced it. The likes of Michael Owen, Robbie Fowler, Dennis Bergkamp, Eric Cantona, Fernando Torres, Alan Shearer and Titi Camera. Our very own no.15 is more effective than …
Captain Hendo: Civil War

Captain Hendo: Civil War

When Dalglish pursued and finally signed a young Jordan Henderson, a few days shy of turning 21 years of age on the 9th of June 2011, many amongst the Liverpool faithful were very hopeful. It was the best of times, it was the worst of times. Liverpool had only just emerged from the toxic ashes of a civil war, nearly on the brink of being banished to administration only half a season before. Their new owners were viewed as saviors …
The LFC turnaround under Klopp - Stoppage time Victories

The LFC turnaround under Klopp - Stoppage time Victories

Jurgen Klopp arrived at Liverpool and in his very first press conference he stated he wanted to turn 'doubters into believers'. The German spoke from the heart much like he always does and even though this phrase was aimed towards the fans who, towards the latter period of Rodgers' reign had turned cynical to the point that a win was a negative, he was also speaking to his players. Anfield wasn't a fortress. In the past it was a VIP …
Henderson and Can – Struggling in a '2'?

Henderson and Can – Struggling in a '2'?

Amidst mediocre performances against the likes of Augsburg in the Europa League and Manchester City in the Capital One Cup finals, the midfield (or lack of) has been the biggest topic when it comes to pinpointing the flaws of the Klopp-influenced Liverpool side. A high-calibre midfield sets the tone for the rest of the team given that it is indeed the position that serves as the balancing act between the defensive duties of the side as well as the supporting …
