Liverpool 3-1 Arsenal : Virgil at 100%

These Reds. The top of the league Reds. We know how good this team is, or at least we think we do. We know we’re too strong for Norwich and too much for Southampton, but some games really act as a marker as to the extent of this side’s quality. We know we are better than Arsenal and we should expect to beat them at Anfield, but the gap between the ...

Southampton 1-2 Liverpool : Sadio Stuns Saints

These Reds again. What a bunch. On a day where Liverpool were not at their best for large parts, they showed us signs of how truly brilliant they are. And yes those two points are very much linked. Just a few hours before Manchester City played Spurs off the park but left frustrated, Liverpool’s stars came up with moments of extreme quality (one moment in particular) out of nothing to earn ...

Liverpool 2-2 Chelsea (5-4): Mane’s Turkish Delight

Get in. If you weren’t up desperate to win it at kick-off you most certainly were by the shootout. This trophy is bigger than they will have you believe and winning it only adds more weight to the fact that Liverpool are back. The undisputed Kings of Europe have become the most successful side in English football. In addition to that they have sent another statement to the rest of Europe’s elite ...

Liverpool 4-1 Norwich: Bobby Dazzler

Did anyone else forgot how good the Reds are? Perhaps it was the divide between the Champions of Europe and a lesser Premier League side that came as a shock. Liverpool were spectacular. Norwich played very well, attacking with a combination of quality and fearlessness that we are unlikely to face many times this season. But when the Reds upped a gear it showed. Liverpool could up the tempo at the ...

Bradford City 1-3 Liverpool – Stephen Darby Baby

The Reds are back in action and all is right with the world once more. Pre-season isn’t usually something to shout about but every day that passes without the European Champions in action feels like a lifetime and now our heroes are finally returning. The summer break has been eventful with our boys from Brazil becoming champions of another continent, while Sadio and Mo fight over Africa. The Women’s World Cup ...

Transfer Special: Land of the Rising Son

Now that the season is finally over for the Reds, culminating in the most spectacular of ways, it’s time to talk about transfers. This is a very testing window for Klopp and his men. They have so far taken Liverpool from remarkably average to European Champions in less than 4 years, but as the team gets better, the more difficult it is to improve. How can you improve on 97 ...

Champions of Europe: Ali’s Sixth Sense

The worst game you could imagine. But the greatest result you could ever dream. Liverpool are champions of Europe again. The match was horrendous but only for the neutrals. Let them be frustrated at the lack of entertainment while we relish in the glory of our football team. The Reds didn’t have to put on a show and give us the most entertaining final in history, they’ve already done that. This was ...

Liverpool vs. Barcelona MOTM review: Another Fab Night at Anfield

Words, words, words. All I have to describe this team are words. But words just aren’t enough. That irrational feeling of hope at kick-off, despite everything. Hearing the noise and seeing those players put 40 minutes of effort into the first 7 minutes, that’s what describes this team. The delirium after the third as we think, “My word, they’re doing it again.” The somewhat calming feeling of confidence as you think they’ve ...

Robbo Ravages Resilient Rafa

These Reds. They show their steel time and time again. They never lie down, even when they are given every possible reason to. You have to love them. They are better than everyone else, stronger than everyone else and faster, still they work harder than everyone else. We have never seen a Liverpool team like this before and will not again. Newcastle were incredible, which seemed to get little recognition post-match. It ...

Barcelona 3-0 Liverpool : I’m a Joel Man

It hurts. My God it hurts. But we go again. The world is round, everything is round. Everything goes on and similarly the footy must continue, somehow. It’s a hard result for everyone to come back from, never mind the Reds. It’s a harsh reminder that you can work as hard as you like, sometimes you don’t get what you deserve. The Reds will recover, no doubt, can’t speak for the ...

Liverpool 5-0 Huddersfield – The Sign of the Times

91 points. Behave Redmen. There’s still a fighting chance that this is the best club side ever made. There is also a strong possibility that they improve again next season. Wow. We know this side is going nowhere. The average age is 26, with most of the star men entering the peak years of their career. Also, the sides that were being linked with these players are now worse and less ...

Liverpool 2-0 Porto – Hendo Slays Dragões

The Reds have done the business again. They’ve put one foot in the last 4 of the champions league without breaking a sweat. The ability of these footballers to make such a high-profile match look like a procession should not be overlooked,  but it certainly will be. We started the game with such bravery, allowing Porto to make the first move, see how they approach the game so we can counteract ...

Southampton 1-3 Liverpool – Captain Becomes a Saint

They’ve done it again. Liverpool have been pegged back again and overcame it again. No matter what is thrown at them, they find a way of getting the job done. We’ve all grown up knowing and hearing that this is a title-winning trait that only the very best teams possess, yet this time, it’s been rebranded as “luck”, but not by me, not by us. Liverpool are not lucky. They are probably ...

The Ful Force of Sadio Mane

Job done. Top of the league. 3 points was a must by any means and the Reds delivered as they so often do. For the second time in a week, Liverpool don’t give in to the narrative. They’ve been pegged back in unlikely and bizarre circumstances and given all the reason in the world to fold. But they don’t. The lazy, hopeful shouts of nervousness and succumbing to too much pressure will have ...

Bayern 1:3 Liverpool: Mané on Fire

European Elite. Liverpool have progressed to the last 8 of the Champions League in some fashion. Eyes have been on this team from the very beginning. From last year’s finalists to the group of death to the tie of the round of 16. Liverpool are European royalty and not just because of history. They are in the very highest bracket of world football and feared by all. Bayern Munich have not ...

On the Virge of Reckoning

Stalemate, stalemate, stalemate. We were poor going forward again. We should have taken advantage again. We drew 0-0 again. It’s disappointing. But we go again. We could talk about dropped points and missed opportunities till we’re blue in the face or we couldn’t. The only reason there was an opportunity to be missed was because of Manchester City’s slump in December that we capitalised on with a run of 9 Premier ...

Beck on Top

Stalemate again. The worst performance of the league season so far for Liverpool, without a doubt. We were dreadful. Manchester United, despite their resilient defending, were there for the taking. The frustration comes from the failure to capitalise on their injuries in terms of both their makeshift line-up and the 3 first half substitutions. If Liverpool had played anywhere near their best, victory would have come easy. Old Trafford is a ...

Henderson Sits Down James

A stalemate then. 0-0 is a very overrated score line for the away side in European competitions. Everyone, including Niko Kovac, buys into it being a solid European away result. But in many ways, it can favour the home side, especially one as good as Liverpool Football Club. Just last year, when Manchester United returned from Sevilla with a 0-0 draw it was praised as a “Mourinho Masterclass” when in reality ...

Salah Pops the Cherries

The best in months. Liverpool could have quite easily scored 8 and it would not have flattered them. It was an incredible team response to the lazy headlines of bottlers and the nerves of a title race being too much to take. The Reds bottled up their anger and directed it towards a Bournemouth side that just couldn’t live with Liverpool’s quality and directness. From the off Bournemouth were being ...

Keita Softens Hammer Blow

At the end of a storm, there’s a golden sky. It was never going to be easy. We have earned 2 points from a possible 6 while our rivals have earned 3 from 6. That is all. No more, no less. Disappointment is normal, as is expecting a lot from this wonderful side we all adore. However, context is important. We should know by now that nothing will be decided until ...

Mane Points to Play For

Frustrating, of course. But look at the bigger picture. After this round of fixtures our title rivals are certainly more hurt than us. In many ways, watching our result would have added to their anger. Not only have they not capitalised but they have fallen further behind. Leicester are a very good team, especially when playing the top sides. Newcastle however, was supposed to be an easy three points before a ...

Captain’s Class Crystal Clear

The Reds Prevail It was an end to end, chaotic encounter but the Reds prevailed. As opposed to the week before, the patient and probing game versus Brighton where the Reds prevailed. This can be again contrasted to the gnarly, physical battle against Burnley a while back in which the Reds prevailed. There is a pattern emerging, however. Teams turn up to play Liverpool, be it at Anfield or away from ...

The Big Red Machine

What a win. The Reds handle the hype and march on. That’s the first home goal Brighton have conceded since March of last year. That’s just their 3rd home defeat of the season, which is less than Tottenham Hotspur. Brighton are a good side and very difficult to beat on their own patch. They played very well on Saturday night as well it must be said. Chris Hughton came as close ...

Hoever Braves Wolves in Defeat

The F.A cup is not what it used to be. It’s fair to say that without sounding bitter. This season especially, the Reds have got much bigger fish to fry. In a league campaign that demands less and less margin for error, resting players was a must on Monday night. No doubt this will go down as another cup upset in a desperate attempt to salvage the cup’s dwindling flame, ...

Robbo Shines as Reds Labour to Defeat

So. It turns out that winning the league against the greatest side in Premier League history isn’t easy. Of course, there are loads of positives to take and we are still in a position that most of us could not have dreamt possible six weeks ago, but this still hurts. It was a phenomenal game of football between the two best sides in the world. Unfortunately for us, the luck was ...

Gini Bottles Arsenal

At what stage do we just stop playing games at Anfield. It’s a waste of everyone’s time isn’t it. We’ve just stuck five past one of the best sides in the country for having the audacity to take the lead. We may as well just make every home game a 3-0 win and the lads can go on holiday every other week. If we were to have a vote on ...

VVD the VIP

Watch him defend and watch him score. What a performance by the Reds against a very good Wolves side. City drew there, Chelsea lost there, they held Arsenal at their place, they held United at their place, Spurs made it look incredibly difficult, yet Liverpool made it look simple. This side can beat anyone in so many different ways now. Wolves looked dangerous, but in the end, they never really looked like ...

Absolutely Fab-ulous

What a team. What a side. In 50 years when your kids or grandkids ask you about the best Liverpool side you’ve ever seen, don’t say you spent the season worrying about City, you’ll never forgive yourself. Adore these Reds. They deserve it. They would go to the moon and back for us if we asked. In fact, I’m sure Andy Robertson ran that accumulative distance last night and no one ...

Oh Captain, My Captain

These Reds. Always have to do it the hard way don’t they? We can’t help but love them though. What a team. What a group of lads. I think we can put this clicking business to bed now. The Reds are back and ready to attack this season with a fully-fledged assault on all fronts. They won a key battle today. The performance was similar to last season’s exploits, with the ...

Mo Takes Us Top

How satisfying was that Reds? The Mighty Boys in Red go top in style and without breaking a sweat. They were, to a man, absolutely terrific this afternoon. It can be easy to underrate these performances when you’ve got the game won over half an hour before the end. The emotions aren’t as high at full time etc. but that for me, was Liverpool’s best performance of the season. If I ...

Naby Keita, Qu’est-ce que c’est?

That’s three points for the manager right there. He can take them home and cuddle them to sleep tonight. He’s earned it. He targeted this game as the one where he could rest the big men and get some minutes in the legs for those who need it and he got it spot on.

“I won’t blunder like Alisson.” What a win. And what a way to do it. Literally, the best way. Give me that over a 6-0 thumping any day. That was Everton’s best performance in a derby at Anfield I have ever seen and yet the result was the same as it ever was. I was convinced we would win the game up until about the 70th minute when I began to get ...

The Calm Before the Storm

Breathe. The Reds are on a break. In theory anyway. In actual fact our boys are off scoring goals and heading ceiling-high footballs (love it Virge) but we are where we are. On November 24, we travel to Watford which begins a long and arduous run that could make or break our season and I for one cannot wait. Let’s get stuck in.
