Believe it or not…Liverpool are one of the better sides in Europe!

By Bass Tuned to Red: @basstunedtored   Certain websites often refer to Europe’s big five leagues, yet in reality there are only three who could seriously claim to be top of the tree. Serie A is a long way from being the dominating force that it was in the 1990s, and Ligue 1 doesn’t have that many top players, so in reality we look to the Premier League, La Liga and Bundesliga for ...

Reds Record for van Dijk?

This summer, marquee is spelled v-a-n-d-i-j-k. After reports yesterday indicated Liverpool had lowered their aim to the second tier of centre-backs for the upcoming summer, fans had begun to accept that Virgil van Dijk was in all likelihood not joining the club at the end of the season, and had started mentally spending that — quite frankly, excessive — moolah elsewhere. A supporter's attention is a tenuous thing, and Naby Keïta, ...

Liverpool could get one of their injured stars back in time for this weekend's Premier League match. No Sadio Mané or Jordan Henderson or Adam Lallana has put Liverpool in a difficult position as they enter the final month of the season knowing they need to win all four of their remaining games—and that even then they won't be guaranteed a top four finish and a place in next season's Champions ...

Mailbag: Klopp and Benitez – The managerial opposites

Klopp and Benitez: Managerial opposites Watching this weekend’s less-than-unexpected defeat, it occurred to me how diametrically different Klopp and Benitez are and how perfect a combination of them would be. Benitez was and presumably still is a tactical mastermind. Two Champions League finals and a semi, including one victory, with that team? Top effort! But when it came to inspiration and man-management, not so much. I still curse the day he felt naffing ...

Can you smell the fear around Liverpool’s CL hopes?

When he was at the top of his game in the Autumn of 2015, having claimed another US Open, Novak Djokovic still had time for contemplation of what makes success either a reality or always just out of reach. “Everyone feels fear,” he said. “I don’t trust a man who says he has no fear. How are you going to use it? Are you going to let it consume you, or are ...

Klavan: “…cannot pinpoint exactly what is going on”

Teamwork is the key to Liverpool’s efforts to improve their defensive record, Ragnar Klavan believes. While the Reds remain the Premier League’s highest scorers this season, Sunday’s 2-1 home defeat to Crystal Palace saw their ‘goals conceded’ column swell to 42 - more than any other team in the division’s top seven places. Klavan, who missed the loss to the Eagles due to a ligament injury but hopes to be fit for ...

Sam Allardyce claimed Liverpool could not cope with a Crystal Palace game plan that “exposed their weaknesses time and time again” as Christian Benteke returned to haunt his former club at Anfield.

Klopp wants Naby Keita – The man who makes it all come together for RB Leipzig

https://twitter.com/KOTK96/status/855429996478947328   When any football discussion is centred on defensive midfielders, the name N’Golo Kante usually comes up. But there’s actually a defensive midfielder who has performed better than Kante in Europe. His name is Naby Keita and he’s RB Leipzig’s live wire in midfield. In 2012, a relatively unknown young Naby Keita made the 6000-kilometer trip from Guinea to Europe (France). The 16-year-old had only one thing in mind – to become ...

Sakho speaks…and says “the past is the past”

For Mamadou Sakho, there is no satisfaction to be had in vindication. He has known for over a year he had done nothing wrong, and that the fat burner containing higenamine, for which he tested positive after helping Liverpool to Europa League progress beyond Manchester United, was not included on the World Anti-Doping Agency’s prohibited list. Uefa had admitted as much last July before, in the first section of a ...
