Shrewsbury Town 2-2 Liverpool - Player Ratings as sloppy Reds are punished and taken to replay

In the end, Liverpool were probably lucky they didn't lose the game on the day. Jurgen Klopp will be annoyed at the prospect of having to play a replay against Shrewsbury as well, but this was the least that the hosts deserved, as the lax Reds were pegged back from 2-0 up, as the game finished 2-2. Curtis Jones opened the scoring in the first half, and the Reds were 2-0 up 30 seconds after the restart, with Donald Love's …
Klopp Commitment Great News For Liverpool Youth

Klopp Commitment Great News For Liverpool Youth

Jurgen Klopp delighted the Liverpool fan base last month when the news broke that the German had signed a new contract to keep him tied to the club until 2024. After delivering a sixth Champions League success, a 97 point Premier League campaign and, as it stands,  on course to guide the Reds to a record breaking domestic campaign, the former Borussia Dortmund coach renewing his deal at Anfield is brilliant news for the present day. There will be a …
Liverpool 1-0 Everton: Who Was Boy of the Match?

Liverpool 1-0 Everton: Who Was Boy of the Match?

Even against a Liverpool team with an average age of 8 years old, Everton still could not find a way to win at Anfield. That old Shankly quote about the Liverpool reserves being the second best team on Merseyside has never been more relevant than it is today. The Reds move into the 4th round of the FA Cup, despite Klopp’s best efforts, and continue their incredible run of form at home. In goal, Adrian had a lot more to …

Player Ratings as the baby Reds defeat Everton

Arguably the most fun I've had watching Liverpool all season, there. The absolute state of Everton Football Club. Appoint one of the greatest managers the game has ever seen, rock up at Anfield to play against Adam Lallana's Nursery XI and STILL come away with a defeat. They might be awful on the pitch, but their commitment to banter is up there with the best in the world. Curtis Jones with the only goal of the game and what a …
Liverpool's academy now rivals their first-team

Liverpool's academy now rivals their first-team

The Liverpool academy used to be full of false hope.  For a period of time, fans had high hopes for the youngsters on the books. The ones who’d either carved out a reputation having impressed prior to their move to Merseyside or those boosted by what they eventually turn out to be according to Football Manager.  Ultimately, the Reds weren’t getting the most out of the time and money they put into their academy. Those tipped for greatness fizzled out. …
Yasser Larouci injury may not be as bad as first feared

Yasser Larouci injury may not be as bad as first feared

Liverpool youngster Yasser Larouci should be back in full training in a matter of weeks according to the club's medical staff. The left-back had been impressing fans and Jurgen Klopp with his pre-season performances this summer but was taken out of the Sevilla game after a disgraceful challenge from French player Joris Gnagnon. However, reports on the official Liverpool website on Tuesday night state that Larouci doesn't seem to have suffered any bone fractures, instead he has some very heavy …
Liverpool’s Long Goodbyes

Liverpool’s Long Goodbyes

One of these days summer will actually come. It may feel like we’ll be forever chasing City, one point behind, in a perpetual spring where the temperature never climbs above frigid. But the calendar is in-fact progressing. We know that we’re not stuck in a time-warp because Joe Gomez and Oxlade Chamberlain are apparently ready for action. Some morning soon you’ll actually look out the window and see the sun and it will be time to consider Liverpool’s summer signings, …
