Liverpool: Why Emre Can Is the future, Not Henderson

Liverpool: Why Emre Can Is the future, Not Henderson

One of the biggest mistakes that Klopp made was to allow Jordan Henderson to keep the armband when he took over. Maybe he didn't want to change too much, too soon. But in his second season, Hendo still has it. Apart from him not bossing games or being a natural midfield general ( shouting at the ref doesn't count as commanding), it basically made him "undroppable" and in the process stunted the development of Emre Can in central midfield, because unfortunately for the …

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.

EPL: Are Referees and Linesmen ruining the beautiful game?

"The best League in the world"..."The most entertaining league in the world" Terms flouted about on a regular basis by pundits and analysts when describing the English Premier league. But can it really be called such, when the referees and linesmen get it so wrong, so often? Maybe they also want to add to the excitement.... Maybe they're just useless. The latter seems more closer to the truth. Best League...worst Match Officials  How many offside goals were allowed this season …

How has Gini Wijnaldum settled in at Liverpool?

How has Gini Wijnaldum settled in at Liverpool?

Since joining Liverpool, Gini Wijnaldum has been a regular in the first team and his performances have split the fan-base. The majority recognise the qualities that he brings to the team, but there remain a few doubters. Although his fee looked steep at the time, it now seems good value compared to the transfers of Yannick Bolasie and Moussa Sissoko. The prices of players have sky-rocketed out of control and for that reason, the £25m fee shouldn't be used against …

Don't Underestimate the Loss of Jordan Henderson

Don't Underestimate the Loss of Jordan Henderson

Jordan Henderson appears to be one of those so-called ‘marmite’ players – loved by some, hated by others. Personally I think he is criminally under rated and the popular perception that he only offers hard work is a ridiculous misconception. Liverpool’s captain has been hampered all season by a heel injury, a condition known as Plantar Fasciitis that affects the band of tissues running under the sole of the foot. It is a painful condition and that has been clear …
