Tactics - A look at Emre Can's New Role

Tactics - A look at Emre Can's New Role

Jurgen Klopp's at it again, isn't he? There's outside the box and then there's Jurgen Klopp levels of outside of the box. Just when you start to scratch your head and question the logic behind it all it clicks into place and you feel stupid yourself for not seeing it originally. Adam Lallana as a box-to-box midfielder - his dribbling and ability to play on the half turn make him an ideal candidate to break the defensive lines. Jordan Henderson as …
Liverpool vs West Brom Preview: Can Pulis' bus be broken?

Liverpool vs West Brom Preview: Can Pulis' bus be broken?

Liverpool will be hoping for a welcome return to their goalscoring ways after a frustrating shut-out against Manchester United on Monday, when they host West Bromwich Albion on Saturday evening. It's another game likely to be under the Anfield lights, with the Reds hoping to remain unbeaten at home this season. Form Liverpool are, for want of a better word, in fine form. Not quite the form that Arsene Wenger's Arsenal seem to find themselves in, but still, being eight …
Liverpool v West Brom: Key Battles

Liverpool v West Brom: Key Battles

For all that was said about Jose Mourinho and Manchester United for their tactics on Monday, Liverpool played nowhere near as well as they could have and shown us this season. But for the Reds, it is time to put the game behind them and concentrate on the next Premier League game as we welcome West Bromwich Albion to Anfield on Saturday. Adam Lallana will probably start after only coming on from the bench against United and Gini Wijnaldum could …
Divock Origi: Klopp's most improved player?

Divock Origi: Klopp's most improved player?

As part of a series celebrating Jurgen Klopp's first year in charge, we take a look at some of the candidates for Most Improved Player since his appointment in October 2015. There's been a number of changes at Anfield since the German manager took charge but the most important difference has been an improvement in performances on the pitch and this has been a mixture of individual progression, tactical success and strategic change. All these have played a major contribution …
Liverpool's Rollercoaster Ride Ends - Consistency Inevitable

Liverpool's Rollercoaster Ride Ends - Consistency Inevitable

It’s been a very entertaining year for Liverpool fans across all seven corners of the world so far. Scintillating games from October last year with masterful performances against Chelsea, Manchester City, Villareal and Borussia Dortmund, followed by disappointing results against West Ham, Watford, Southampton and Newcastle was indeed a rollercoaster ride last season, as said by plenty of Reds when Liverpool Football Club decided to part ways with incumbent Celtic manager Brendan Rodgers, and appointed who is probably their biggest …
Taking Risks Key to Liverpool's Success This Season

Taking Risks Key to Liverpool's Success This Season

Liverpool’s start to their 2016/17 Premier League campaign has, with pinpoint accuracy, summed up what fans have come to expect from Jurgen Klopp’s reds – inconsistency. A breath-taking attacking performance that was enough to see off top four rivals Arsenal was followed by a toothless display away at Burley and, unfortunately, it is from the latter fixture that most lessons can be learnt. Liverpool’s defeat at Turf Moor highlighted the importance of a back-up strategy. Against Arsenal, Klopp’s favoured gegen-pressing …
Liverpool Supporters: Pessimistically Optimistic

Liverpool Supporters: Pessimistically Optimistic

Liverpool Football Club is a massive club, to say the least. The supporters are those who know it better than anyone. After all, we’re the ones who have witnessed the highs and lows over decades and decades. Players, managers, and staff come and go. But it’s us fans, who are the constant in the equation. A little over seven months ago, Jurgen Klopp has replaced Brendan Rodgers, who was in the drivers seat for three and a half seasons, and …

Sturridge's wave or Skrtel's mistakes?

Sturridge's wave or Skrtel's mistakes?

“A good living leads to forgetfulness”- A Ghanaian Proverb This came to mind on one of the many days Twitter’s machine guns and RPGs were set in motion in the Daniel Sturridge battle. For a striker who owns an impressive record that put into shade Suarez, Owen and Fowler, celebrating him should be a chore among fans rather than the sporadic chant of his name when he scores. He should be venerated with universal accord within the club’s fan base. …
Memorable Liverpool FC Boxing Day Games

Memorable Liverpool FC Boxing Day Games

I'm an advocate of changing the Premier League schedule so clubs have a mini winter break. I think it'll benefit the clubs in Europe and it'll benefit the league in the long term as you won't be blitzing the players and having them play in something silly like a game every 3 days...but, at the same time I think Boxing day football is alongside the opening day of the season and the final game of the season for games I …
