Let’s Play The Yes/No Game Yes, Liverpool were screwed by the officiating at White Hart Lane. No, don’t expect support from fans of other teams even though everyone has a horror story about referees/VAR. Yes, the entire refereeing system needs an overhaul. No, Curtis Jones’s red card should not have been rescinded. It’s marginal but […]

Szoboszlai’s Supreme Start – Avoid The Obvious Comparisons Let’s avoid the G-word. It’s something we need to stay away from. It’s only September, and there’s a long way to go. Even so, you have to admit, Dominik Szoboszlai’s goal against Leicester City looked as if it could have been born in Huyton. But comparisons are […]

Liverpool’s Tactical Mastery Under Jurgen Klopp Klopp’s Substitution Strategy Does it matter that Liverpool have conceded first in four of their six games this season? Well, it’s not ideal. Slow starts leave you vulnerable. Yet, when you look at the tables – the Premier League and Europa League standings – the point tallies indicate that […]

The Lurking Shadow of Last Season It’s been a positive start to the campaign but the shadow of last season has hung over the late summer heatwave and the international break. Wolverhampton Wanderers are looming tomorrow and February’s 3-0 defeat at Molineux was one of the worst performances of the Jurgen Klopp era. Joel Matip […]

Season Reflections As Former Skipper Digs Hole Deeper Isn’t football mad? They get you excited with a little taster of the season and then pull the plug with the international break. There has to be a better way of doing things. Starting on a negative note, it’s clear that the Chelsea match was a missed […]

Europa League: A Blessing in Disguise? It’s hard to be on the outside of the Champions League. There are few positives to being in the Europa League. At least it’s this year. Not being at the top table next season, when the Champions League changes format and becomes an even bigger moneyspinner, would be much […]

Transfer Window Tensions Just six days of relentless bedwetting to go before the transfer window closes. And if things go wrong at St James’ Park, mattresses will be soaked like never before. Chelsea and Bournemouth both looked like mid-table teams. Newcastle United are a different proposition. They are equipped to exploit Liverpool’s flaws. Yet there’s […]

Summer of 2023: Football’s Financial Frenzy In five years people will look back on the summer of 2023 and wonder what the hell was everyone thinking. More than £100 million for defensive midfielders? If Moises Caicedo is still playing for Chelsea in half a decade I’d be shocked. My best guess? He’ll be plying his […]

Things Just Got Surreal After weeks of haggling over a couple of million quid with Southampton in an attempt to buy Romeo Lavia, Liverpool suddenly bet the farm on Moises Caicedo. Fenway Sports Group have been criticised all summer for doing things on the cheap. This deal is eyewatering: £110 million. Mingebags no more. This […]

Analysing the Liverpool Squad: Post-Summer Changes One of the most interesting things about the coming campaign is how the defence will fare after all the summer’s changes. They’ve leaked a lot of goals in the friendlies and, while pre-season games can be more or less discounted, there are a few concerns. The unexpected departure of […]
