Liverpool's Fullback Creativity and Recruitment Targets – Part 1

Liverpool’s Fullback Creativity and Recruitment Targets – Part 1 An analytical deep dive to profile Liverpool's fullback creativity and answer the question - is it sustainable? This season, Liverpool consistently lacked a midfield set-up that tasked a player to be a high performing creator and goal threat. That meant the absence of a midfielder to carry the ball past defensive lines, complete creative passes into the box and take dangerous shots from inside the box, all at a high level. …

Key Stats As Liverpool Beat Wolves...But Finish Second

Liverpool did everything they could, but fell just short, as a 2-0 win over Wolves on the final day of the season wasn’t enough for them to take home the Premier League title. So what were the key stats from a slightly anti-climactic final day of the season? Trent Flies Again It’s fitting that the season ends with a Trent Alexander-Arnold assist, taking him for 12 to the year, the most ever by a Premier League defender. Trent was excellent …
Liverpool 2 Wolves 0 - Reds On Top for Seconds

Liverpool 2 Wolves 0 - Reds On Top for Seconds

And then there was one. One last Sunday to say our prayers and hope Manchester City open the door for Liverpool. It had been eight straight wins since a 0-0 draw at Goodison left just enough slack for City to overtake The Reds. The consensus was then that we would have to win out. A win against Wolves would accomplish that, but City have not cooperated. The only pause in their pursuit of a four trophy season has been in …

Fabinho & Henderson stand tall on the biggest stage

Who else is still bouncing? Who else can’t think about anything apart from THAT game? Who else wouldn’t change this Liverpool team for the world? Tuesday night is seconded only to Istanbul for me, in terms of drama, passion and emotion, on a night that genuinely felt flat in my mind before kick-off. This time they really weren’t going to turn it around, were they? That Vincent Kompany stunner against Leicester had only further dampened spirits, following an extremely harsh …
Liverpool leave the past behind in thrashing of Barcelona

Liverpool leave the past behind in thrashing of Barcelona

This club is the mix of atmosphere, emotion, desire and football quality. Cut off one and it doesn't work.
The words of a stunned, joyous and emotionally drained Jürgen Klopp after the greatest Anfield night of his tenure: a perfect storm of atmosphere, emotion, desire and football quality that tore into Barcelona, blowing their European dreams apart and reducing even the greatest footballer ever to a footnote in what had been a special European tie. 3-0 down after …
Liverpool 4 Barcelona 0 - What happened?

Liverpool 4 Barcelona 0 - What happened? "Football"

What happened? “Football.” The one-word response from Jurgen Klopp somehow summed up yet another breathtaking night at Anfield. With the team missing three of its most vital performers in Mo Salah, Bobby Firmino and Naby Keita, the three goal deficit left for The Reds after the first leg was so insane that it somehow made us feel more confident. It was a set-up made for this crazy club. Who would the manager piece together to take on this herculean task? …
