Ruthlessness Key As Liverpool Head To Old Trafford

Ruthlessness Key As Liverpool Head To Old Trafford

So here we go again, the return of one of the most unbearable fixtures for many Liverpool fans: Man United away. It is a game that we love to win more than just about any other but know all too well how bleak defeat can be. Unfortunately, that has often been the case at Old Trafford lately, with the Reds managing just two wins there since 2004, losing on 12 occasions in that time. That was then and this is …
Daniel Sturridge: Liverpool’s Potentially World-Class Wildcard

Daniel Sturridge: Liverpool’s Potentially World-Class Wildcard

There were a couple of moments at the end of last season that seemed to save Daniel Sturridge’s Liverpool career. By the time the crucial trip to West Ham rolled around on May 14th, the general consensus was that Sturridge’s continued fitness woes had left him surplus to requirements, with a move elsewhere likely this summer. Then the vital 4-0 win at the London Stadium happened. Moment number one for Sturridge was, unsurprisingly, his expertly-taken goal that gave Liverpool a …
It's Time To See A More Ruthless Roberto Firmino

It's Time To See A More Ruthless Roberto Firmino

There was a moment last season that made you realise Roberto Firmino was a notch down from the very best finishers in the business. Sent clean-through in a tight contest at Southampton in November, the Brazilian’s attempt at an outside-of-the-foot finish went horribly wrong. He may have only missed the target narrowly, but it was a chance that had to be taken, especially when it comes to title aspirations. Liverpool drew 0-0, and two priceless points were dropped. Similar scenarios …
How The Perfect Liverpool Squad Should Look Next Season

How The Perfect Liverpool Squad Should Look Next Season

Another season has been and gone, but unlike so many at Liverpool since they decided to stop winning everything, 2016/17 has left us with a feeling of great warmth. The Reds’ title challenge may have fizzled out after a very promising first four months, but sealing Champions League qualification has to be seen as a huge positive. It is very easy for Liverpool fans to have a sense of entitlement, given the club’s incredible history both domestically and in Europe, …
Kirkby Development Will Be Good For Liverpool

Kirkby Development Will Be Good For Liverpool

In a move that is guaranteed to cause more groans and whines of petulant exasperation than gasps of excited wonder, Liverpool Football Club today revealed images detailing the projected appearance of the planned state-of-the-art training complex in Kirkby. The plans for the £50m campus, which will house the extant Academy along with the first team, will be viewed by local residents and businesses today, as the proposed redevelopment enters into the public consultation phase. The theory is that Jürgen Klopp's defending Champions …
Sad Firmino Misses Europe

Sad Firmino Misses Europe

Sometimes this thing just writes itself. After an evening spent sipping wine and solo-chomping through what some buffoon decided to call a 'sharing bag' of salt n' vinegar crisps, Latest News was sufficiently emboldened to return to the often unsettling world of Twitter in the hope of finding suitable topics to discuss here this morning. As ever, that melting pot of horror and delight rose to the challenge, with quotes galore and terrible opinions aplenty. You see, until late yesterday …
Manchester United v Liverpool Preview - Key Battles

Manchester United v Liverpool Preview - Key Battles

It was a far from ideal way to warm up for a trip to Old Trafford as Liverpool put on one of their worst displays under Jurgen Klopp in the 1-0 semifinal first-leg loss in the EFL Cup at Southampton. Liverpool are very lucky to still be in that tie, but now the focus should switch to the Premier League and to their fierce rivals. United are on a fantastic run of form - they have won eight games in …
Manchester United vs Liverpool Preview: Old Rivalry, New Perspective

Manchester United vs Liverpool Preview: Old Rivalry, New Perspective

Liverpool make a short trip up the M6 on Sunday to face Manchester United in one of the biggest fixtures in the English football calendar. With United having experienced something of a fall from grace in recent years, the game takes on a slightly rarer meaning with the Red Devils, majorly in-form, chasing the Reds, with Jürgen Klopp's side looking to put further distance between themselves and the team their fans love to hate. THE DETAILS Match: Manchester United vs …
Jurgen Klopp's Liverpool: The Most Feared Team In The Land

Jurgen Klopp's Liverpool: The Most Feared Team In The Land

When was the last time an opponent took on Liverpool, played their natural game and got the better of the Reds? When did a game finish and you genuinely thought, “they’ve gone toe-to-toe with us there, and deserved their win”? It has barely happened in 2016/17 to date, if at all. Arsenal were their usual selves on the opening weekend and were dispatched of by Jurgen Klopp’s men, and Chelsea were outplayed by a more superior outfit the following month. …
Calmness Personified in Joel Matip

Calmness Personified in Joel Matip

It was the game we had all been waiting for since the start of the season. After a full weekend of build up that had the feel of a WWE Wrestlemania main event, we finally made it out of work buzzing with anticipation and dreaming of not just beating our greatest rival Manchester United, but destroying them. The whole country was ready for an entertaining game. We just forgot that Jose Mourinho was the opposition manager. The Anti-Christ of football …
