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 ...

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 ...

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 ...

Liverpool Fans – Their Own Worst Enemy

Throughout our history, Liverpool FC have prided ourselves on the unrelenting support and belief of the fans. Some attribute that attitude to the City's hardships, particularly in the years of the Thatcher government. During the 1970's and 1980's especially, the City was in turmoil, and football was a release not just from work, but from life for many. Liverpool FC was at the forefront of it all, but in truth, ...

Gini, Henderson & Milner (our unsung heroes)

How often does the dogged midfielder get all the plaudits? My answer to that would be very rarely, but in Liverpool we have not just one but three midfielders who go out and leave everything on the pitch. Gini as we like to call him for one has been ever present in the Liverpool's line up since the start of the season! He's been so impressive that Klopp just can't ...

Connor Randall who is currently out on loan is named amongst Liverpool's home grown contingent. The ...

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 ...

The Liverpool Squad – Part 4: The Battle in the Middle

And so we come to the engine room, the middle of the park. Here, things are probably most open for debate, due to the large variety of options, dependent not only on the playing staff, but firstly on formation Jurgen Klopp decides to employ. So far, he has fielded a three-man midfield in every game. But many still expect him to revert to his supposedly favored 4-2-3-1 at some point. Some ...
