Liverpool: 'It's The Hope That Kills You'

Liverpool: 'It's The Hope That Kills You'

I've been trying to understand why it is that fellow Liverpool supporters are in a state of constant anxiety and despondency in the current season. It really has gone to a whole new level of low. As a friend of mine often tells me : "When it comes to Liverpool, It's the hope that kills you" He's right, but this season its gone that little bit extra. That last bit of hope has somehow already been kicked out of us …

Liverpool and Manchester United face off at a strange time in the EPL

It's that time of the year again. Liverpool at Anfield - it does not come much bigger than that, for Manchester United in the Premier League.

Liverpool's​ ​No.6​ ​Dilemma

Liverpool's​ ​No.6​ ​Dilemma

Often referred as a holding or a defensive midfielder, number six is arguably the most important position in football. Be it Pep’s tiki-taka, Conte’s three defender system or Klopp’s gegenpressing, the number 6 role is pivotal for any tactic. While other teams have Kante, Wanyama, and Fernandinho doing the job astutely well, Liverpool’s number 6 position has always been a spot of bother for them. Jordan Henderson was given the defensive role last season and did well before getting injured. Emre Can …

Yet Again, Liverpool Drop Points Against a Defensively Organised Team

Liverpool were playing against a promoted side. They had all their attacking stars lined up. The opponents were set up to defend. There must have been a time when these things put together would have meant an easy victory for Liverpool. If such times existed, they are becoming extremely difficult for the Reds’ fans to recall.

Leicester Vs Liverpool League Cup Preview | Stats, Key Men & Team News

Many Premier League clubs are routinely accused of fielding second-string sides in the League Cup, lowering its profile quite a bit. Starting this season, the competition will be sponsored by an energy drink company – Carabao - from Thailand. Could it be that the clubs competing in it are also energised enough to take the competition seriously? At least a few big clubs should consider it seriously, as the Carabao Cup represents their best chance of getting silverware. Two such …

Liverpool vs Burnley Preview | Team News, Stats & Key Men

After differing results at the weekend, Liverpool and Burnley will face off in a match both will see as an opportunity to take three points. After a 4-0 stomping of Arsenal, Liverpool went from the stompers to the stompee last week as they were beat 5-0 by Manchester City.  Most of the goals they conceded were after star man Sadio Mane was sent off, but they were already 1-0 down and being at the least marginally outplayed.  After getting spanked …
