Curtis Jones Could Be Liverpool's New 16/17 Lallana

Curtis Jones Could Be Liverpool's New 16/17 Lallana

If you polled people to ask them the words they most associate with Liverpool's midfield, the descriptions you would mostly see would be "functional, stodgy, obstinant, no-frills." While not always the easiest on the eye -- although, when asked to play progressively, they can weave pretty patterns and pass through opponents with the build-up to Roberto Firmino's goal at Manchester City last season a shining example of this -- the Reds' engine room's effectiveness cannot be disputed. With World, European …
How James Milner became an unexpected Liverpool hero

How James Milner became an unexpected Liverpool hero

This week marked the five year anniversary of James Milner's arrival at Liverpool, making the switch from Manchester City on a free transfer. After weeks of speculation as to where the Yorkshireman would end up, it was former boss Brendan Rodgers who managed to persuade Milner to choose Anfield over any other potential destination. While securing Millie's services was seen as a brilliant piece of business, especially on a free deal, there was no way of knowing just how much …
A Fabinho & Keita post-lockdown masterclass?

A Fabinho & Keita post-lockdown masterclass?

In 2018, if Liverpool fans had been asked who the Reds' most important midfielders would be by the time 2019/20 ended, Fabinho and Naby Keita would likely have come out on top. The pair arrived during the summer of that year, with both considered elite footballers who could take Jurgen Klopp's ever-improving side to that next level. Liverpool's other midfielders were perfectly effective in their own right, but the two new additions seemingly represented another calibre of player - the …
Liverpool's No D*ckhead Policy Paying Dividends

Liverpool's No D*ckhead Policy Paying Dividends

Liverpool took their first tentative steps towards restarting their campaign when small groups of players took part in non-contact training at Melwood yesterday, Wednesday. What was noticeable among the players was that the usually impeccably coiffured hair of some of the squad's members -- the Brazilian duo of Alisson and Firmino, particularly -- had grown untamed without access to barbers during lockdown. Now, trying to garner any information about a person's personality based off how they keep their hair is …
Van de Beek a Potential Dutch Delight For Liverpool

Van de Beek a Potential Dutch Delight For Liverpool

With each passing week, uncertainty over Georginio Wijnaldum's future at Liverpool begins to grow. The Dutchman -- such a key component to the Reds European Cup win last season and their soon to be confirmed Premier League title win -- only has a year remaining on the 5-year deal he signed when arriving at the club from Newcastle United in 2016 and the radio silence over any progress on a new contract has the Anfield faithful worried. Whether Liverpool look …
One Year On: The Game Where Alisson Showed His Worth

One Year On: The Game Where Alisson Showed His Worth

Liverpool is a club synonymous with historical nights in European football and this week we looked back on the first anniversary of arguably one of the greatest of those we'll ever see. Somehow the Reds overturned a 3-0 first leg deficit against Barcelona to make it to their second successive Champion League final after a 4-0 victory. While it's hard not to think of the contributions of the likes of super sub Gini Wijnaldum, Trent's quick thinking for the corner …
The Importance of Wijnaldum Extending Liverpool Stay

The Importance of Wijnaldum Extending Liverpool Stay

For the time being, footballing soap operas have taken a back step, as the world attempts to tackle the pandemic affecting the planet. At Liverpool, talk of a potential move for Timo Werner remains a talking point, however, as does the future of Gini Wijnaldum - a player who has achieved so much since joining in surprise fashion from Newcastle back in 2016. The Dutchman is still yet to commit his future to the Reds, with his current contract expiring …
How The Power of Anfield Helped Liverpool Crush Barcelona

How The Power of Anfield Helped Liverpool Crush Barcelona

Even before kick-off, it was apparent that the Anfield crowd was ready. A healthy crowd gathered outside the stadium -- as is customary on big European nights -- to soundtrack the team's bus' entrance, defiantly lifting their player's morale when it appeared to all that they were flogging a dead horse. 3-0 down to Barcelona from the first leg, Liverpool -- who were shorn of 2/3's of their potent attacking trio, Mohamed Salah, and Roberto Firmino -- were given a …
