Liverpool: Have they truly turned it around?

Liverpool: Have they truly turned it around?

Liverpool fans expected a response after a poor run of games, and my goodness they got it. The Reds tore through Spurs with ruthless precision, Sadio Mane's two goals in three minutes securing a long-awaited victory, Liverpool's first in the league for 2017. It has been reported that Jordan Henderson called the squad together and the lads had a heart-to-heart self-imposed intervention of sorts. It worked a charm and the players seemed to be playing with the flowing verve of …
Klopp's flops - Liverpool Players Letting Their Manager Down

Klopp's flops - Liverpool Players Letting Their Manager Down

Jurgen Klopp did not make any additions to the Liverpool squad in the January transfer window. He believed that his troops, made up mainly of the Brendan Rodgers Brigade, were ready to go to war for him.  Unfortunately for him, they seem to have lost their weapons, and need to find them, fast. “Rome wasn’t built in a day, Give Klopp a chance to rebuild LFC” – a common line seen on social media support groups. The problem is, Klopp needed …
How Bad was Paul Pogba Vs Liverpool?

How Bad was Paul Pogba Vs Liverpool?

Stats and ratings can be really cruel on players. When a player plays well, he will be made to look quite good through stats and ratings but when he has a bad day, those stats and ratings will make you look like the worst player on the planet. Although the disproportionate emphasis on the negative side is due to perception bias in the minds of the fans, it can feel pretty real for the players too. Ask Emre Can. Or, …
Adam Lallana – Will He Be Missed at St. Mary’s?

Adam Lallana – Will He Be Missed at St. Mary’s?

Liverpool’s 2016-17 season is different to 2015-16 in many ways. The number of games they have won in the first eleven game weeks, their winning streak, great performances against top as well as bottom teams and the list goes on. One small detail that is also different this season is that Liverpool in this season seem to head into international breaks on a high, while last season and especially the one before that, it seemed that Liverpool were destined to …
The Unsung Contributions of Roberto Firmino

The Unsung Contributions of Roberto Firmino

If there's a fear that will be eating away at some Liverpool fans, despite their side being at the the pinnacle of the Premier League, it is their possible inability to win the title. A point above second placed Chelsea, who have not conceded a single goal in four games and a two point lead over Manchester City, is probably enough to suggest that the position isn't a fluke after all. And Jurgen Klopp's men from Anfield haven't just shown …
Liverpool's Squad Depth the secret to Success

Liverpool's Squad Depth the secret to Success

Squad Depth. It’s how you win things. The luxury of having a large squad filled with enough quality to compete on many fronts… every manager's dream. That is a luxury that has not always been afforded to Liverpool managers in the recent past. Never-mind the squad as a whole; just the subs bench alone would leave much to be desired. The bench is an asset, often providing the manager with an inventory of options to change the outcome of a game …
Why Liverpool have title-winning potential

Why Liverpool have title-winning potential

+Not many would’ve tipped Liverpool to win the Premier League title ahead of the 2016-17 season but there are not many who have performed as well so far. Pep Guardiola’s Manchester City rightfully top the table after an unbeaten start to the season and five wins from five. Liverpool currently sit in sixth place and have picked up three wins, a draw and a loss in their first five fixtures. The performances have demonstrated inconsistency but the manner of Liverpool’s …
Why Liverpool should be considered top four contenders after beating Chelsea

Why Liverpool should be considered top four contenders after beating Chelsea

Liverpool were forced to play without Roberto Firmino on Friday evening at Stamford Bridge, but still managed to prevail 2-1. The Brazilian has been key to the side since Jurgen Klopp took over and his tactical adaptability means that he can play a number of positions in the forward line. Many have thought that Liverpool are better with him playing as a false nine. However on Friday, Daniel Sturridge did a lot better in terms of defensive contribution. He didn’t …
