It's Time for Liverpool to Get Back to Where They Belong

It's Time for Liverpool to Get Back to Where They Belong

The whistle blew to signify the end of Liverpool’s 2017-18 season and fans felt drained. The Champions League final in many ways was indicative of an exciting and turbulent season that promised so much but ultimately failed to deliver a major trophy that Reds fans so desperately craved; but despite this disappointment that felt like a gut punch, there was also optimism albeit tempered with frustration. Klopp’s Liverpool team felt like a team, and for the first time in many …
Why Jürgen Klopp is Owed an Apology

Why Jürgen Klopp is Owed an Apology

The 2017/18 season has been one of the most memorable campaigns in years. Even the 2013/14 league campaign was given a run for its money as the most entertaining season in this millennium as Liverpool romped their way not just across England, but also Europe, putting teams to the sword with a free-flowing, all-smiling, goal-scoring bunch of hardworking madmen. Beautiful. The season had emotions galore: elation, devastation, ruefulness, and now nostalgia. But that nostalgia actually masks something that fans are …

As the dust settles on an emotional week for Liverpool supporters, it's almost hard to believe that it began with the heartbreak of seeing our Champions League Final hopes washed away in a flood of tears. Those of Mohamed Salah, cruelly robbed of his chance to shine on the biggest stage in club football, with his World Cup hopes hanging in the balance. Those of Loris Karius, as he begged for forgiveness amid the realisation of the significance of his …

Lascelles or Tarkowski: Who's the Better Fit?

The wheels of Liverpool’s busy summer have already begun spinning. Even as they head to a Champions League final, rumours have been rife regarding those who will arrive in the summer: The Independent’s Miguel Delaney reported that Michael Edwards has been tasked with finding a centre-half partner for Liverpool’s perceived most important signing in recent memory, Virgil van Dijk. The first two names out of the block share a nationality, and were both unfortunate to not make Gareth Southgate’s twenty-three-man …

Liverpool's Problems Defending Crosses

Liverpool's Problems Defending Crosses

Since Virgil van Dijk joined the club in January, there's no doubting that our defence has drastically improved. Whether this is totally down to the towering Dutchman or a combination of factors including the re-introduction of Loris Karius in goal and the ever improving performances of Andy Robertson at left-back is up for debate. However, what cannot be denied is that big Virg is a phenomenal defender with fantastic attributes that any defence would benefit from. Having said this, both …

Liverpool’s ‘Misfits’ 90 Minutes Away From Becoming Legends

Liverpool are in the Champions League final. Just keep thinking about that. The Champions League final - the biggest match in club football - and Liverpool are in it, in their first season back in the competition since 2014/15. It is a genuinely staggering achievement and one that Jurgen Klopp merits endless plaudits for masterminding. But how has this been possible, considering these Liverpool players are such a bunch of frauds? What kind of sorcery is going on here? Because …

Liverpool Player Ratings From Stoke Stalemate

Liverpool Player Ratings From Stoke Stalemate

A performance that makes you wonder why you bothered getting up for it in the first place. Yes, Liverpool have got bigger fish to fry at the moment, but in a season that's been defined by European nights it seems a little odd that we're not more worried about making sure we're in the Champions League next season. Onto the ratings where I was tempted to give them all 'N/A' which would today stand for 'Not Arsed'. A clean sheet, …
