Seven Game-Changers Who Could Make A Difference In The Final Stretch - Part 1

The Premier League is drawing to a close - and although this season has, much to the dismay of the neutrals, been less about the drama and uncertainty at the very top end of the table unlike last campaign, it has had its clutch moments of its own as the ensemble of superstar managers have all made a mark - some indelible, while others not so much, at various stages in the last seven months. As the final international break …
Liverpool: Winning Ugly - why it's not such a bad thing

Liverpool: Winning Ugly - why it's not such a bad thing

Winning Ugly is a term that has been around the game of football forever. In modern history, it is usually associated with tactics employed by the likes of Jose Mourinho or Sam Allardyce.  Some clubs like West Brom and previously Stoke under Tony Pulis build their whole style of play on this abstract "footballing philosophy" Its basically a style of play devoid of any real aesthetic appeal, but one that is pretty effective [at times]. Get-the-ball-into-the-net-how-ever-you-can-and-defend-with-your-lives is the foundation principle. A …
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 …

Xabi Alonso - These Boots were made for Passing

Xabi Alonso - These Boots were made for Passing

"The Pass Master." Not just a mere title, Xabi Alonso is the personification of perfection when it came to passing. In a time before stats made a player, his superb ability on the ball was mind-blowing. Accurate passing truly defined him. His time at Liverpool had passed a long while ago, yet he is remembered as if he had never left. Some are saying that even now, in the twilight of his career, there is no one in central midfield currently …
What went wrong for Arsenal against Liverpool?

What went wrong for Arsenal against Liverpool?

Arsenal were swept aside with ease at Anfield on Saturday evening as Arsene Wenger's side struggled to overcome their bogey team. The two teams have had a long-standing rivalry but there was an elevated sense of competition last weekend as both clubs are in prime position to challenge for a top four finish at the end of the season. It was Liverpool who gained the advantage though, as all three points moved them back into a Champions League qualification spot …
Arsenal's defeat to Liverpool left more Questions than Answers

Arsenal's defeat to Liverpool left more Questions than Answers

It was Forrest Gump's Momma that said "life is like a box of chocolates, you never know what you gonna get". She could actually have been talking about Liverpool; such is the unpredictability of Jürgen Klopp's side. Who else could go from insipidly losing at Hull to convincingly beating an in-form Tottenham, to then shambolically losing to a down and out Leicester City, only to respond by beating fellow top four hopefuls Arsenal? Liverpool under Klopp are still the box of chocolates that Forrest Gump's …
