Faux Forwards and False Expectations

Faux Forwards and False Expectations

Aside from the strange machinations of Adenor Leonardo Bacchi, otherwise known as Tite, we are all generally aware of the value of Roberto Firmino at this point. Brazil was boring with Jesus, boisterous with Bobby, and ultimately the exclusion of the Reds' frontman would prove to be their undoing. Back on Merseyside, Bobby Firmino has been lauded for his incredible all-around game in the middle of Liverpool's attack. He finishes his campaign with 30 goals and 14 assists in all …
'Not as good as last year' Mane keeps on delivering

'Not as good as last year' Mane keeps on delivering

“He just doesn’t look right.” “It looks like Salah’s rise has affected his confidence.” “Where is the Sadio Mane of last season?”
The first two quotes there have been made pretty often through the course of this season, but do they carry any weight? When you look at performances and numbers to go with it, there is really no way in which to quantify “looking right”. So we might be justified in letting that one slide. Has Salah’s …

Anfield's SeatServe - American Anfield

Ahead of Liverpool’s enthralling 5-0 win over Watford on Saturday evening, I was angered to see stickers slapped on the bank of seats promoting an app that Liverpool Football Club are now using. This app, SeatServe, allows fans to have food and drink personally delivered to their seats before the game, at halftime, or even worse, during the game. There are many moral issues with the induction of this skip-the-queue system. One is that it seems to be offering an …
Liverpool player ratings as supreme Salah shines against Hornets

Liverpool player ratings as supreme Salah shines against Hornets

There was something so routine and yet so unbelievable about that. For a player who scores so frequently, it's mad that it's Mo Salah's first hat-trick. Even crazier that he decided to score four, not three. Liverpool 5-0 Watford - into the home-stretch of the season with a win. Andy Robertson's gang of beautiful lads Loris Karius (6): Another clean sheet, tidy in everything he did. Joe Gomez (5): Misjudges a header for Watford's first shot on target as Richarlison …
Liverpool v Watford Preview - Key Battles

Liverpool v Watford Preview - Key Battles

After a disappointing outing in enemy territory last weekend, Liverpool will be looking to get back on track when they welcome Watford to Anfield on Saturday evening. The Reds will be desperate for the three points to get back on track after an impressive run of form was halted in an indifferent performance against Manchester United at Old Trafford. The Hornets were humbled 3-0 at beleaguered Arsenal last week, with Troy Deeney missing a penalty to compound their woes. They …

VAR | Liverpool's first exposure to it and why it's here to stay

VAR | Liverpool's first exposure to it and why it's here to stay

It's fair to say that every supporter of every club feels like their beloved team has been robbed by refereeing decisions this season. I can certainly say that about every single Liverpool supporter. Football is the most popular sport in the world and yet it is the only major sport to not have some form of video review. The governing bodies of the game decided to catch up with the rest of the world and viola - VAR. The VAR …
Liverpool 2017-18 - A Half Term Report

Liverpool 2017-18 - A Half Term Report

As 2017 comes to its creaking and inevitable end, perhaps it’s time to take stock and look at the state of our Red nation - to make a brief assessment of where we are; to ‘take our temperature’ as Leo McGarry says in the West Wing. The last month has provided a perfect cross section of where Liverpool are and, possibly, where we are headed. The seven games in 24 days (which, in itself, is nuts) has included the massacres …
Dejan Lovren: The Buck Doesn't Stop There

Dejan Lovren: The Buck Doesn't Stop There

Sometime after 4.15pm yesterday, a collection of mumbles, conversations and downright vitriol ran around the away section at Wembley. ‘He’s got to take him off.’ ‘We’re going to get battered here. Fuck’s sake, Jurgen.’ ‘Get that useless twat off now!’ Later on some people speculated that Dejan Lovren’s was the worst performance ever given by a Liverpool player. That got me thinking. My mind flew to a John Arne Riise display at Craven Cottage years ago when I seriously wondered …

Fantasy Premier League Insight: GW9 - City Flying

With GW8 behind us, let's reflect on what transpired and MY WORD! what a game week. All the focus was on Anfield as two Juggernauts did battle; the match itself was a let down as it finished honours even. The games to follow produced some of the more unexpected results Man City once again showed us why they are pretty much nailed on for the title, smacking seven goals past Stoke City. Even with Aguero out, City assets just keep …
