The Reds' Midfield Going Forward

The Reds' Midfield Going Forward

Standards have now become so high that any dropped points can lead to dismay within the Liverpool fanbase. After a draw at home to Brighton, and a loss to West Ham, Liverpool head into this weekend with a clear need to improve. The international window has (as always) brought back an array of injury concerns. The provisional team will almost pick itself, yet the indications of the starting line up are still encouraging. As Andy Robertson joins the injury list, …

Liverpool's handling of Ibrahima Konate

Liverpool's handling of Ibrahima Konate

Ibrahima Konate has made just two starts for Liverpool following his £36million transfer from RB Leipzig this summer.  The first arrived in the 3-0 win over Crystal Palace in the Premier League and then he was included in the starting XI for the 3-0 Carabao Cup victory over Norwich City. It has now been close to a month since he last featured for the Reds and I’ve seen complaints from some fans.  With injuries stacking up elsewhere, people are starting …
Time For Klopp to Make Some Tactical Changes?

Time For Klopp to Make Some Tactical Changes?

Players dictate formations, and a system that is effective needs the components to fit as required. We saw last term (to the detriment of the side) players shoehorned into positions in order to maintain many an adapted team sheet. The patterns of play that are based upon the system suffered, and the team fell apart under the strain of calamity and poor form. The form of almost all the players suffered due to an inability to field certain players, and …
Liverpool’s Magnificent Seven

Liverpool’s Magnificent Seven

I recently watched the remake of the Magnificent Seven, a modern take of the original classic. The film revolves around impossibly unrealistic scenarios, a suicide squad of unlikely heroes, with a battle to overcome the odds and succeed. The plot of the film is ridiculous, how the movie then plays out absurd, but the idea of magnificent individuals being required to overcome the greatest of obstacles, not so far fetched. Fenway Sports Group have chosen their means of running the …
Thiago - It’s a Kinda Magic

Thiago - It’s a Kinda Magic

Football can be pure joy to the eye, with wonderful technicians (thanks Brendan) scattering the past and present of the game. I grew up watching the gliding destruction of John Barnes, mesmerised by his abilities. Later I would sit pitch side, enthralled by the elegance of Steve McManaman as chalk dusted his boots, and I now shuffle forward in my seat every time a certain Spaniard receives the ball. When rock and roll football announced its arrival at Anfield, it …

Liverpool And Addressing The Unsexy Role In Their Team

Liverpool And Addressing The Unsexy Role In Their Team

Georginio Wijnaldum's long goodbye finally ended in recent days when it was confirmed that Dutchman would be joining Paris Saint Germain. After 179 appearances in Liverpool red, Wijnaldum -- whose contract at the Anfield club expires at the end of this month -- will earn a hefty payday in Paris. Rumours abound regarding who the Reds will choose to replace the durable former Newcastle linchpin in the centre of their midfield. Several names have been linked, including Leicester City's Youri …
How Thiago controls the Liverpool midfield

How Thiago controls the Liverpool midfield

The win over Burnley was exactly the sort of game Thiago was signed for. He was one of the main reasons Liverpool were able to stamp their authority on the match. As a result, not only did they dominate the ball, they also dominated the space. That was the big difference.  Usually, in matches against Sean Dyche teams, the Reds have the majority of the possession but they’re limited in where they can operate.  Until the deadlock is broken, you …
