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 …
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 …
Sadio Mane: Beyond expectation

Sadio Mane: Beyond expectation

When the news broke that Liverpool had signed Sadio Mane for £34m from Southampton in the summer, it was greeted with mixed reactions. Was the price tag too much? Was he going to fit in at Klopp's Liverpool? Was this the solution to the Red's goal-scoring lack of depth? Perhaps he was just another ex-Saints player to add to the collection... Either way, few would've predicted just how well Mane would do in his opening weeks on Merseyside and it's …
Why Liverpool should be considered top four contenders after beating Chelsea

Why Liverpool should be considered top four contenders after beating Chelsea

Liverpool were forced to play without Roberto Firmino on Friday evening at Stamford Bridge, but still managed to prevail 2-1. The Brazilian has been key to the side since Jurgen Klopp took over and his tactical adaptability means that he can play a number of positions in the forward line. Many have thought that Liverpool are better with him playing as a false nine. However on Friday, Daniel Sturridge did a lot better in terms of defensive contribution. He didn’t …
Premier League's youth: Should they stay or should they go?

Premier League's youth: Should they stay or should they go?

The Premier League is bursting with young talent, many of which don't ever get an opportunity to show what they can do with regular first team action. Some of the best managers in the league have found ways to implement their youngsters and bring out the best of their abilities but in an era of inflation, big spending and money-dominated owner-ships; it's becoming increasingly hard for young talent to break through the ranks in some of England's top clubs. The …
The Aftermath of England's and Hodgson's Euro 2016 Exit

The Aftermath of England's and Hodgson's Euro 2016 Exit

For the second time in a week, England have managed an ignominious exit from Europe and Roy Hodgson, much like the hapless politicians, oversaw it without any cohesive plan. The humiliating defeat to Iceland was Hodgson’s final act as England manager and summed up his handling of this tournament. Yes, England did not have the best squad of players heading into Euro 2016, despite the hype, and their ceiling was probably a semi-final at best, but the way they were …
Farewell Pellegrini: Manager's successful departures

Farewell Pellegrini: Manager's successful departures

Fernandinho recently called for English clubs and their fans to get behind Manchester City's Champions League campaign and vowed his side wanted to go all the way for Pellegrini, who couldn't wish for a better send off if they're successful. The Chillean manager will be leaving the Blues at the end of the season as Manchester City welcome ex-Barcelona boss, Pep Guardiola to the helm for the start of the 2016-17 Premier League campaign. As it stands, Pellegrini could still …
