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 ...

Can Liverpool Conquer all of Europe?

The road for 6th European title. Can we claim Ol’ Big Ears? Honest answer? Yes! I personally think that it would be remiss of people to think that we haven’t got the capabilities to claim our 6th European trophy this season and I’ll tell you why.   In the last round of the tournament we beat one of the most recent winners in the last decade, a team that’s got its fair share of World ...

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 ...

Liverpool to give City the Blues

Liverpool play Manchester City in what many perceive as the match which will determine as to the Premier League title’s eventual destination.

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 ...

Fabinho – Our Brazilian Maestro

Liverpool signed Fábio Henrique Taveres ‘Fabinho’ on the 28th of May 2018 for a fee of £39 million, an amazing coup by the Reds. The then 24-year-old had been scouted by many top clubs across Europe, but Jürgen worked his magic again and we got him across the line. He arrived by private jet with his wife Rebecca Tavares to complete his deal.

Midfield Rotation After the Nations League

A goalless share of the points between two of the Premier League's most dangerous sides was perhaps not the result most fans expected, but nonetheless, it's one that both managers were more than happy to accept. "It is a very intense, an unbelievable challenge to face Manchester City always - I've said that before - and as the last game of an intense period, it makes the challenge even bigger, so ...

Gini Wijnaldum MUST Return to the Number Six Role after the International Break

Before I go any further I must clarify one thing; this is not an attack on Jordan Henderson. As a Liverpool and England fan I cannot overlook just how far Henderson’s game has improved over the course of the last 18 months. His forward passing was crucial to England’s World Cup success in Russia. He is our captain and is a crucial component at the club both on and off ...

Opportunity knocks..for the Reds

As the window closed at 5pm on Thursday 9th August, almost 3 weeks earlier than in most years, there was a sense of calm, in an office at Melwood, where unlike some of the other managers in the league, Jurgen Klopp could enjoy a relaxing day with an afternoon training session and no smacks of desperation like a certain moaning manager at the opposite end of the East Lancs. For Jurgen ...
