Steven Gerrard's Opportunity to Shape the Future

Steven Gerrard's Opportunity to Shape the Future

On announcing his retirement from football, Steven Gerrard spoke of heeding the advice of those he respected by calling it quits whilst there is still something in the tank. I would consider that sound advice and wise of Gerrard to follow it. As a Liverpool fan, there was reason to be excited about Gerrard from the very beginning and not just because he was a local lad and life-long fan of the club. It was immediately clear that this was a player …

On November 19th, Southampton welcome Liverpool to St Mary's as the Premier League resumes after the final international break of the year.  Southampton welcomed the international break with open arms after consecutive losses to Chelsea and relegation favorites Hull City.  After a five game unbeaten run, the Saints started to fall off and will hope the break can help them refocus and get their form back.

Mane Vs Sterling - A Statistical Comparison

Mane Vs Sterling - A Statistical Comparison

When Raheem Sterling left Liverpool in the summer of 2015, he did not just leave behind disgusted fans, he also left behind a giant hole in the form of a pacy winger and a good goal scorer. Indeed, the then 20-year old had been the main reason why the Reds could finish sixth in 2014-15 despite the entire season feeling like a hangover from the heights of 2013-14. That Liverpool did not immediately fill the void, made sure his absence …

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.

Analysing Coutinho's Season - One of the Best Players in the League?

Liverpool's attack has been the best in the Premier League, alongside Manchester City, with both sides scoring 24 goals in the league this season. Although Liverpool have played the majority of their matches without a traditional number nine, their movement and relentless work rate has allowed them to create lots of chances in every game. There are still going to be matches where they are frustrated by sides that set out to contain them, as happened against Burnley and Manchester …
Why Are EPL Strikers Out of Fashion This Season?

Why Are EPL Strikers Out of Fashion This Season?

Strikers. The  Glamour Boys. The Hansel's and Derek Zoolanders of the football world. The match winners. All hopes of glory rested squarely on their shoulders. Not anymore. Well, this season at least. This EPL season has seen a dramatic decrease in striker influence. Midfielders are now the main outlet for goals. Heck, even defenders are chipping away at their trade. Their relevance in the overall scheme of things will never fully diminish, but somehow managers in the EPL this season are …
