Liverpool's Squad Depth the secret to Success

Liverpool's Squad Depth the secret to Success

Squad Depth. It’s how you win things. The luxury of having a large squad filled with enough quality to compete on many fronts… every manager's dream. That is a luxury that has not always been afforded to Liverpool managers in the recent past. Never-mind the squad as a whole; just the subs bench alone would leave much to be desired. The bench is an asset, often providing the manager with an inventory of options to change the outcome of a game …
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.

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 …

Abou Diaby is one player that Arsenal kept on the books for an unhealthy amount of time …
England are still England

England are still England

After attention was inevitably drawn to the disgusting scenes on the streets of Marseille, it did eventually switch to events on the pitch at Stade Velodrome, where England were very….. well, England. After using the pre-tournament friendlies to unsuccessfully try out Wayne Rooney behind Harry Kane and Jamie Vardy in a 4-4-2 diamond, Roy Hodgson opted for, what on paper, was a 4-3-3. However, as it turned out, it was too often more like a 4-5-1 for England that left …
