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 …
Moments For The Underdogs: Joel Matip and Divock Origi

Moments For The Underdogs: Joel Matip and Divock Origi

 ‘I like being the underdog so they don’t expect what’s going to happen…’
The biggest moments aren’t always meant for the biggest players, the best players, the ones who you’d expect to take up the mantle when everything is on the line. Those glittering, do or die moments can spark the emergence of those who have faded into the background, the underdogs in a group of top dogs who make their mark where no one thought it possible. …
Virgil Van Dijk - Here To Stay

Virgil Van Dijk - Here To Stay

Virgil Van Dijk has been not just one of Liverpool’s best players this season, but one of if not the best player in England. His deserved triumph at the PFA Player of the Year awards, coupled with the fact that he’s now a realistic contender for the Ballon D’Or, means that he is swimming in accolades. It’s incredibly difficult to compare across positions, so let’s just say that he’s the best defender in world football, and almost certainly a top …
How Virgil van Dijk Justified £75m Liverpool Transfer

How Virgil van Dijk Justified £75m Liverpool Transfer

Eighteen months ago, Liverpool made the unpopular decision of making the former Southampton defender one of the most expensive transfers ever, as reported by Skysports. It was logical that what followed was huge media coverage of the Dutchman’s performance. A year and a half later, £75m has never been so cheap. Since he joined the Reds, van Dijk has cemented a starting place in the team and has become the favourite of many Liverpool fans and football neutrals alike. With …
Madrid Can Be Mane’s Defining Moment

Madrid Can Be Mane’s Defining Moment

The legendary 4-0 win over Barcelona will be remembered for so many reasons by Liverpool supporters. The impact of Divock Origi and Gini Wijnaldum will rightly be at the top of the list when the game is looked back on in decades to come, following their heroic double apiece. Similarly, Trent Alexander-Arnold’s outrageous assist for Origi’s tie-clinching strike will go down in legend for its audacity and speed of thought. Alisson’s expertise in the Reds goal helped keep his side …

Liverpool vs Spurs Preview - Potential Key Battles

Who would have thought that we’d end up here, huh? After an absolutely tumultuous twelve months for Liverpool, the Reds are back in the same position that they were this time last year, in a Champions League final. Whilst it would be unfair to suggest that Liverpool’s entire season rests on the final game of it, it is true that Liverpool’s hopes of winning their first of silverware under Jürgen Klopp this year do rest on it. So what are …

The key areas Klopp will strengthen in the transfer window

Alas, it's here: silly season. The transfer rumour mill is in full swing and the window hasn't even been open for a week. It will undoubtedly be another crucial window for Jürgen Klopp and Liverpool, as they look to cement their place as contenders to Manchester City's Premier League throne. Rumours are already rife about who will and won't be joining the Reds over the coming weeks, and whether it will or won't be a busy window again this year. …
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 …
