Liverpool Must Improve

Liverpool Must Improve

Absurd title, isn’t it? Allow me to explain... Every Premier League game these days feels like a ‘must win’ for Liverpool Football Club. Such is life when you’re effectively chasing perfection and trying to outdo this Manchester City outfit. The opening five (admittedly kind) league matches have been expertly navigated by Jürgen Klopp, yielding the perfect 15 point return that Liverpool fans dreamed of when the season began. Now though, as summer ebbs away and the Champions League kicks off …
Trademark Liverpool

Trademark Liverpool

I don’t know what the big problem is. “We are Liverpool, tra la la la la,” easily changes to, “We are Liverpool, all rights reserved, we’re the best football team in the land.” Adam Lallana won’t have much to do this season. Imagine the pride he would take in slapping TM’s on every road sign leading into the city. Yes, it’s been a while since we’ve had an off-pitch controversy, and when I say, a while, I mean several days. …
Liverpool Must Not Underestimate The Importance Of Investment This Summer

Liverpool Must Not Underestimate The Importance Of Investment This Summer

It's been a fairly interesting pre-season so far. Premier League champions Manchester City have also been heavily linked with Spanish international Rodri, a 23-year-old central midfielder currently learning his trade at Atletico Madrid. Another of Liverpool's rivals, Manchester United, completed the signing of right-back Aaron Wan Bissaka from Crystal Palace - who has drawn many comparisons to the Reds' own full-back Alexander Arnold. The Red Devils have also been linked with Leicester centre-back Harry Maguire, who could be another to …
Why Keita could be key to Liverpool becoming English Kings

Why Keita could be key to Liverpool becoming English Kings

In the context of a football match, a midfielder receiving the ball, dawdling on it, eating a few seconds of time before laterally recycling it is no big deal. It happens umpteen times in the course of every game. In the case of Naby Keita’s Liverpool career, however, it could be symbolic of the Guinean fully acclimating to both Jurgen Klopp’s tactical demands and the pressure’s associated with playing for a worldwide footballing institution such as the Reds. In a …
Liverpool now capable of winning dirty

Liverpool now capable of winning dirty

The Champions League final between Liverpool and Spurs was probably as bad a deciding game as the competition has seen for years. In terms of a neutral, it was a bland showing between two sides that had an array of attacking talent on show. Some pundits have put this down to the fact that both sides had a three-week break from their last league game, blaming rustiness as the reason for the lack of quality. However Jurgen Klopp will not …
Klopp's Liverpool are far more than heavy metal football

Klopp's Liverpool are far more than heavy metal football

Jürgen Klopp said once that he likes his sides to play heavy metal football. We have had many, many examples of this over the past three-and-a-bit years of his reign as Liverpool manager, with some incredible and memorable performances along the way. We all remember some of the roller-coaster games of Klopp's Liverpool; Norwich 4-5 Liverpool in 2016, the incredible comeback against his former side Borussia Dortmund - and while we're on the subject of European comebacks, how can we …
Liverpool FC: From 4-1 Humiliation To Champions Of Europe

Liverpool FC: From 4-1 Humiliation To Champions Of Europe

Define ignominious: Liverpool's 4-1 defeat away to Tottenham in October 2017. That dank autumn afternoon was Jurgen Klopp's nadir as Reds manager, at a time when the first few doubts were creeping on about this most charismatic of men. While he wasn't under the kind of pressure many managers find themselves under at low points, frustration was clear and the German was in a rare fragile position. The loss at Wembley left Liverpool sitting ninth in the Premier League, with …

UEFA - The Green-Three-Eyed Monster

“It is time for Liverpool Football Club to go to yet another European Cup Final”.
Yet, many have been priced out and many are left without tickets. In a few weeks, there will be a mass exodus from the banks of the River Mersey to get to Madrid for our ninth European Cup final. Fans are still looking around planning the cheapest and most reasonable routes due to the spike in flight costs and hotel prices in Madrid. …
Why Madrid Must Be Liverpool's Crowning Moment

Why Madrid Must Be Liverpool's Crowning Moment

This Liverpool team has to be remembered. This has been the main thought going round my head in recent weeks, during what has been one of the most emotionally draining seasons in memory. For anyone under the age of 40, I doubt I'm alone in saying a Reds side hasn't felt this special before - none have left you feeling so connected and in love with it. There have been some top class teams since the glory days, but this …
Try wipe the smile from my face

Try wipe the smile from my face

Grinning at the wall as I stand at a urinal. It’s the litmus test for happiness - male happiness, at least. Not only was I trying to engage the lavatorial tilework in a joyous staring contest, but I was also making eye-contact with other men in this den of iniquity - trying to engage them in conversation about a football match. That’s unheard of, in my life, at least. It’s normally a case of getting in, doing what I’ve got …
