Liverpool Steamroll City

Liverpool Steamroll City

It was Deja Vu for Liverpool and Manchester City playing each other again after just 3 days and the final of the Capital Cup. Klopp opted for Jon Flanagan as right back and switched Nathaniel Clyne to left back and it set up an interesting duel between Flanagan and Raheem Sterling. Flanagan set his marker early with a robust challenge on Sterling. Pellegrini was without Yaya Toure through injury and he brought Joe Hart back into the side. The game …
Wembley Bound Liverpool Struggle Against Stoke

Wembley Bound Liverpool Struggle Against Stoke

You would have thought I'd have known better at my age when I thought Liverpool would sail through the second leg of the Capital One Cup Semi-Final at home against Stoke City no bother. I think there would have been a better chance of me winning tonight's Euro millions lottery than that happening. Liverpool started the brighter of the two teams but for me manager Jürgen Klopp made a mistake in his selection, he should have played Joe Allen instead …

Mr. Rodgers - Will You Be Our Harvey Specter?

Liverpool endured a very poor start to the season which had involved being knocked out of the Champions League as well as languishing in the bottom half of the Premier League table for a while. However, the last few weeks have seen an emergence from that with 1 loss in the last 15 games (3-0 loss at Old Trafford). There is a growing sense of optimism at the club with new signings like Lallana, Can, Moreno and Markovic finally making …

Jack Robinson compared to Andre Wisdom - Can Either Make It At Liverpool?

A good full-back. A mysterious enigma that seems to evade the lush, green turf of Anfield. The full-back slot has seen somewhat of a downturn in real talent at Anfield since the days of John-Arne Riise and Steve Finnan - one eye-catchingly powerful and the other getting the job done, unspectacularly but fantastically. Liverpool have tried to fix the left-back slot this year with attempts to sign Alberto Moreno from Sevilla but what of the young talent that already exists …

Alberto Moreno | Stats Comparison to Johnson, Flanagan and Enrique

Liverpool have seemingly always had a long standing problem when it comes to acquiring the perfect left back. In the last ten years or so there have been many triers but not so many doers. John Arne Riise was probably the closest Liverpool came to having a great left back but even he was poor at defending at times, but he offered goals and chances at the other end so this was often forgiven. Then there was Fábio Aurélio, more …
Podolski & Flanagan Amongst Title Race X-Factors

Podolski & Flanagan Amongst Title Race X-Factors

At the end of the Premier League’s first trimester, we had Gooners occupying first place and basking in the euphoria of a long-awaited “marquee” signing.  Four points across town, Chelsea lurked in second with Manchester City and Liverpool rounding out the top four.  Now, having (almost) completed 26 rounds of play, we have the same first four crew – though Chelsea and Arsenal have swapped seats and City’s game-in-hand could see the Citizens leapfrog the pair. As we head into …
In The Spotlight: Liverpool's Jon Flanagan & Raheem Sterling

In The Spotlight: Liverpool's Jon Flanagan & Raheem Sterling

Liverpool have had a week of ups and downs. A 4-0 thrashing of neighbours Everton at Anfield left the Reds in dreamland, along with the added bonus that a number of teams around them lost points on Saturday, and the prospect of City and Chelsea playing each other on Monday night. However, Liverpool couldn't capitalise on others' mishaps. A draw at the Hawthorns meant that the Reds were looking at 2 points dropped rather than 1 point gained, and lost …
Jon Flanagan Vs Spurs | Player Performance Analysis

Jon Flanagan Vs Spurs | Player Performance Analysis

In the past few weeks injuries have plagued the Liverpool setup, however this has given young Jon Flanagan a chance to make his mark in the first team again. Some would say he has fitted in perfectly playing left back which isn't his natural position but his performances show he is always putting in 100%  for the team. Brendan Rodgers has mentioned on several occasions that Flanagan is a perfect professional, someone who is always willing to learn and prove …
