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

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's Depth Issues Are Being Overstated

Liverpool's Depth Issues Are Being Overstated

A lot has been made of Liverpool’s depth issues recently, and particularly in attack. There are good reasons for this, as Liverpool have drawn three of their last four league games, two of them 0-0, as they attempted to balance crucial Premier League and Champions League fixtures. I myself wrote an article on the topic just a few weeks ago, after the goalless draw at Goodison Park. With the Reds 90 minutes away from a Champions League final and one …

Roma Rampage Offers a Glimpse of What Midfield Can Do

Roma Rampage Offers a Glimpse of What Midfield Can Do

Liverpool’s irrepressible front three once again stole the show as the Reds gloriously ripped Roma apart in the first leg of their Champions League semi-final but, for 80 minutes at least, it was close to a perfect team performance. As so often under Jurgen Klopp, a manager who licks his lips rather than quakes in his boots on the big occasion, the Reds raised their level for a massive game, unlocking the frightening extent of their offensive capabilities as the …
Wielding the Sword - Is Klopp's Philosophy Viable?

Wielding the Sword - Is Klopp's Philosophy Viable?

If ever a night encapsulated a team. Liverpool took their season to new heights with a thrilling, brave, brilliant performance at Anfield, smashing Roma to all four corners of the ground as they took a 5-0 lead in a European Cup Semi-Final. And then, well, you all know what happened next. Lovren switched off, Karius got beaten at his near post, Milner put his hand in the wrong place and suddenly we’re all nervous again. And there it was, in …

Liverpool Player Ratings From Hawthorns Holiday

Liverpool Player Ratings From Hawthorns Holiday

Liverpool refused to get out of second gear as they shared the points with West Bromwich Albion on Saturday. With AS Roma and the Champions League firmly on their minds, the Reds threw away a two-goal lead to the pretty much-relegated side, but when there's little to play for and the referee is giving free-kicks against you when your player is punched, who's fussed? Hereeeeeee's your ratings. Nice to see you, Albie Loris Karius (6): Was quite meh on the …

Could Gini Wijnaldum be Liverpool's Future Number Six?

Could Gini Wijnaldum be Liverpool's Future Number Six?

Setting the tempo, demanding the ball and creating passing lanes - that's not Gini Wijnaldum is it? When Jordan Henderson picked up a yellow card for tripping up Raheem Sterling in the second-half of the first leg of the Champions League quarter-final at Anfield, ruling himself out of the second leg because of suspension, Liverpool fans quickly turned to social media to express their concerns. With Emre Can definitely out of the second leg because of a niggling back injury, serious …
Liverpool's Underappreciated Midfield

Liverpool's Underappreciated Midfield

The consensus of this Liverpool team seems to be that the three attackers are world class, our defence still needs some serious work (although the emergence of Robbo, the signing of VVD and the form of Karius are mitigating this) and our midfield is … alright. The subject of our midfield is an interesting one, mostly because of the common criticisms and worries about our players. The most consistent criticism of our midfield is that it lacks an explosive punch, …
