Liverpool aim for Top 4 minus the style

Liverpool aim for Top 4 minus the style

Jurgen Klopp spoke a few weeks ago about the need for Liverpool to win ugly. On hearing his words in press conferences most listening would've thought he meant it metaphorically, but now, based on the evidence of recent performances,it seems he was dead serious in a literal sense. It has been far from pretty in the last couple of games for the Reds, but pretty effective. Liverpool are doing something they've mostly failed doing....they are effectively managing games. Grinding out results …
Merseyside Derby : Liverpool and Everton fight for Pride of the City

Merseyside Derby : Liverpool and Everton fight for Pride of the City

It is nearly upon us. The day when a city divided in Red and blue fuse in a cauldron of Singing, chanting and witty banter . It's about pride, it's about bragging rights, but for this particular clash, its about the 3 points. Everton are in glorious form, much of which can be attributed to the goal scoring heroics of Romelo Lukaku , who has been  prolific in front of goal. An amazing statistic shows that the highest scoring players in the EPL before …
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 …

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

It has been a crazy week of football, with Arsenal recording their worst drubbing in Champions League over two legs and Barcelona pulling off a miracle at Camp Nou. It is a bit underwhelming hence, that such a week is ending in a weekend when only four league matches and four FA Cup quarter finals will be played. Arsenal, who have dropped out of the top four, are playing the non-league Lincoln City in one of those quarterfinals and Spurs …
Where has Liverpool's season gone wrong in 2017?

Where has Liverpool's season gone wrong in 2017?

After Liverpool's defeat against Leicester City on Monday evening, Jurgen Klopp's side have come under immense pressure as they look to secure a Champions League spot for next season. Liverpool have picked up just two victories in 2017 despite an impressive start to the campaign. Under Klopp, they have enjoyed some highs in 2016 but also some extreme lows in the new year and their disastrous form threatens to undermine the bright start they made this season. Here are just …
Liverpool have the foundations, now they need winners

Liverpool have the foundations, now they need winners

Liverpool have now got everything in place to succeed, they just need to become winners. Jurgen Klopp has turned the first team into an inspired group of players eager to impress, to express themselves and most importantly, succeed. Liverpool have not had a team bursting with so much talent since the side under Rafa Benitez in 2008 that mounted a similarly impressive early title challenge. Javier Macherano, Xabi Alonso, Steven Gerrard (in his prime,) Jamie Carragher, Pepe Reina; they were …
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 Finally Beat a Tony Pulis Side

Liverpool Finally Beat a Tony Pulis Side

Tony Pulis, the name itself evokes a sense of tedium and a bit of apprehension among Liverpool supporters. He, of the long ball game, of the extremely physical style of play and of gritty determination, brought his West Bromwich Albion side to Anfield this weekend, and the media – mainstream as well as social – was abuzz with stats about Pulis’ great record against the Reds. Pulis’ sides had not lost a league game against Liverpool since the February of …
