Muchas Gracias - How Liverpool upset the population of Barcelona

Muchas Gracias - How Liverpool upset the population of Barcelona

Three days after Liverpool emphatically turned around a three-goal deficit to reach the Champions League final, I arrived in Barcelona for a short trip still ecstatic from the result. What I learned just moments after getting off the plane was that this result hasn’t just hurt Messi and the rest of the team it’s hurt a whole city. Getting into a taxi outside the airport the driver immediately noticed my Liverpool jersey before venting his frustrations in a Spanish slur. …
Fabinho & Henderson stand tall on the biggest stage

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 …

Team of the Year Crystallises Liverpool's Progress

Team of the Year Crystallises Liverpool's Progress

So Paul Pogba eh? What a huge shock and weird selection to the PFA Team of the Year that was! In this essay, I will… Just kidding. Whilst I do think it’s strange he’s been selected despite an inconsistent season, I could see how getting shoehorned into a 4-3-3 formation with a clear lack of individual central midfield candidates could end up with Pogba potentially getting in the team, maybe even with less votes than both Hazard and Salah, both …
Out of Contract Porto Stars Would Energise Liverpool Midfield

Out of Contract Porto Stars Would Energise Liverpool Midfield

Liverpool take on Porto next week in their Champions League second leg encounter at the Estádio do Dragão, but the match offers an extra degree of interest. Porto midfielders, Yacine Brahimi and Héctor Herrera, are both out of contract this summer and could possibly be destined for Anfield next season. Liverpool have missed the attacking midfield flair of Philippe Coutinho this season and have yet to replace the iconic playmaker. Goals have been hard to come by from midfield as …

Player Ratings as Reds pull off massive 2-0 win over Chelsea

Player Ratings as Reds pull off massive 2-0 win over Chelsea

What a massive win! Liverpool were definitely the better side as they beat Chelsea 2-0 at Anfield. Sadio Mane opened the scoring, before Mohamed Salah thundered in a long-ranger at the Kop End to double the lead. The Reds had a few nervy moments after being two goals up, when Eden Hazard hit the post once, and forced a save off Alisson, but post that, there were no worries for the Reds. Here's how each player fared. Alisson Becker - …

Should Fading Wijnaldum Return to Face Chelsea?

Should Fading Wijnaldum Return to Face Chelsea?

Jordan Henderson and Naby Keita have felt like two sparkling new signings over the past week. Both have done perfectly well at times throughout this season, particularly the former, but Liverpool's last two matches have been significant for the likeable pair. The wins over Southampton and Porto allowed the Reds to continue their winning streak, now at six victories in a row, and it was Henderson and Keita who were the biggest positives. The skipper was left out of the …
The Great Henderson Debate - Reignited

The Great Henderson Debate - Reignited

There was a sense of righteous vengeance amongst the Liverpool fan-base as Jordan Henderson strode into the picture to stroke home Liverpool’s pressure-relieving third goal against Southampton and send the Reds back to the top of the Premier League table. A captain justified a player who had finally thrown off the shackles of criticism and demonstrated that he was good enough to play a vital role in Liverpool’s title challenge. And certainly, it was an excellent performance off the bench …
