Jurgen Klopp's Biggest Mistakes of the 2016-17 Season

Jurgen Klopp's Biggest Mistakes of the 2016-17 Season

When Jurgen Klopp arrived in Merseyside in October 2015, it seemed he could do no wrong. However, as his first full season in charge draws to a close, it's clear that even Klopp isn't perfect. He came to the Premier League as one of the most respected managers in Europe following his success in the Bundesliga with Mainz and Borussia Dortmund. Klopp certainly made his mark in his first six months in England too; Liverpool reached the finals of the …
Klopp's Liverpool will not win the title anytime soon

Klopp's Liverpool will not win the title anytime soon

In a fortnight during which rumblings of dressing room and fan unrest have appeared in the media, it could seem that Klopp-mania has well and truly come to an end at Liverpool. While there might be a grain of truth to the stories supposedly coming out of the dressing room, and I believe that to be a good thing (more on that later), the latest story about fan unrest concocted on the basis of some graffiti sprayed on a couple …
Why Harry Kane's injury and bad form was imminent

Why Harry Kane's injury and bad form was imminent

As the crowd thinned, quite contrary to the heat, which had begun to intensify and accentuate , Tottenham seemed overawed by the occasion and surprised by the impending loss. It looked as if the Tottenham we are accustomed to seeing since last season has assumed the form of being the one of the season before that- frail and weaker than expected. And Monaco had showed Mauricio Pochettino's side the mirror and the reflection from it brought the truth into focus- …
5 signings the Premier League may have missed out on this season

5 signings the Premier League may have missed out on this season

The transfer window is one of the most active and exciting periods of the Premier League season and a whole host of clubs are put under pressure to bring in the world’s top stars. Arsenal fans are notoriously ruthless on their manager and Arsene Wenger is often criticised for his lack of big-money signings. The league’s other top four clubs are less hesitant and there’s been some huge figures splashed around this season already. With just days before the end …
Gundogan & Mkhitaryan: Could be the Signings of the Summer

Gundogan & Mkhitaryan: Could be the Signings of the Summer

Borussia Dortmund made a name for themselves under Jurgen Klopp in 2013 when they clinched the Bundesliga title and made it to the Champions League final in the same season. They've got a whole host of big names in their squad - although they've already lost some of those who participated in that winning season just three years ago. Robert Lewandowski and Mario Gotze both joined rivals Bayern Munich, and it looks like Mats Hummels could be on his way …
Juan Mata: Play well but it won’t matter

Juan Mata: Play well but it won’t matter

Manchester United’s midfield maestro, Juan Mata, could be in for a rough season when he is reunited with former boss Jose Mourinho. The pair weren’t the best of friends at Chelsea and the Spanish midfielder was often left out of favour by the Portuguese manager. A £37m offer from Manchester United was far too good for Jose to refuse and Mata was axed from the Chelsea squad in favour of Oscar, who made the No.10 role his own under Jose …
Europa League: help or hindrance?

Europa League: help or hindrance?

Since it changed its name from the UEFA Cup to the UEFA Europa League and changed its format to be a Champions League-lite, the Europa League has had a stigma attached to it. I would argue that some of it is deserved, but some not so. The UEFA Cup was traditionally a strong competition with a good reputation and heritage and there was a time when it could actually be tougher to win than its more illustrious sibling. The expansion …
Liverpool warm up for Dortmund in style

Liverpool warm up for Dortmund in style

Liverpool’s impressive performance away to Borussia Dortmund in the first leg of their Europa League tie rightly brought them plaudits. They largely nullified the threat of Marco Reus, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Henrikh Mkhitaryan and but for Roman Weidenfeller, would’ve been celebrating a famous victory. Social Media was abuzz Sunday afternoon with the news that Dortmund coach Thomas Tuchel had opted to rest his first choice full-backs, midfield and attack for the fierce local derby against Schalke in preparation for the …
