Get Sturridge In The Box (and here’s why) | Bass Tuned To Red

As Liverpool passed themselves into endless cul-de-sacs whilst on their way to a 2-0 defeat at Burnley, one of their many issues became painfully apparent (and not for the first time): Daniel Sturridge was not in or even near the box enough. The Reds (or should that be the toxic greens) completed twenty-two passes in the Burnley box, which on the face of it is a decent total; Liverpool only bettered ...

Coutinho is one of the biggest culprits of poor decision making

You’d expect Sean Dyche to give the square root of f**k all, but Jurgen Klopp must have been wondering just how his side conspired to lose 2-0 against Burnley on Saturday. Using statistics as a basis for defining your opinion might be a dangerous game, but the away side at Turf Moor had 26 shots to Burnley’s three, 12 corners to one and 80.4% of possession. Since Opta’s data began ...

Three things that are holding Liverpool back from being a top team

Christian Benteke: The Wrong Player At The Wrong Time

By this evening, it seems almost certain that Christian Benteke will no longer be a Liverpool player The £32.5m Belgian international, the then-second (now third) most expensive signing in the club’s history, leaves with a somewhat indifferent record of 9 goals in 29 Premier League appearances. By the end, he was the Plan B, the last resort by Jürgen Klopp thrown on to generally be big and try to force a late goal. Sometimes ...

Do the worst clubs have the best fans? Scientific research suggests that might be the case

Loyalty to a football club is heightened by defeat as well as victory, a study has found. The shared pain of losing binds fans together as much as the euphoria that comes with winning, say psychologists. Despair and joy can be so intensely felt that both emotions cause fans to identify strongly with the club they support. The phenomenon, termed “identity fusion”, helps explain why fan loyalty is often so deeply entrenched, even ...

Arsenal vs Liverpool: The Tactical View

A tough match for both sides to start the new season, but certainly more so for Arsenal who entered the match without either Mertesacker or Koscielny at centre back, leaving Calum Chambers and Rob Holding to fill in.

Liverpool & Left-backs. A failed romance.
