Liverpool Again Come Up Short at Napoli

Liverpool Again Come Up Short at Napoli

“Don’t you worry, if you lose in Naples, then you end up winning the Champions League!", said Carlo Ancelotti to Jurgen Klopp after his side had beaten Liverpool in a game that could have gone either way. The reigning European Champions had traveled to Naples to begin their 2019-20 European campaign. It is fair to say that their defense did not begin on a great note. For the first 80 minutes it was difficult to point to a team in …
Champions League Final A Catch-22 Situation For Spurs

Champions League Final A Catch-22 Situation For Spurs

The Champions League final next weekend leaves me in a position I would rather not be in. It pits Liverpool, the club I have supported since 1988 against Tottenham, a team I have an immense soft spot for. I wrote a piece a couple of years back about Spurs being the poster-boys for sustainable spending and have long maintained that they deserve a trophy to show for their efforts.  I will be rooting for a Liverpool win come the first …

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

The last time Liverpool beat Napoli at home in a group game of a European competition to ensure progress into the knockout rounds, it was the fourth matchday of the 2010-11 Europa League and a certain Steven Gerrard rose to the occasion, scoring a brilliant hat-trick and making sure that Liverpool were unsurpassable in the group. The Reds won the game 3 goals to 1 – a scoreline they will love to have on Tuesday when Carlo Ancelotti’s men come …
The battle for the Premier League top four – Part 1

The battle for the Premier League top four – Part 1

So, yet another season is upon us and, on paper at least, it promises to be one of the most competitive yet when it comes to the top end of the Premier League. I’m actually finding it almost impossible to call at the present moment when it comes to which team will be lifting the title and the competition for those coveted Champions League spots will be intense. It’s only right and proper to start with the reigning champions Leicester …
Why Chelsea will need further additions this summer

Why Chelsea will need further additions this summer

A mistake a championship winning side can easily make is resting on their laurels. Even the very best sides in the world should always be looking to freshen up their squads in the summer with new faces. The risk of becoming stagnant is a real threat to any title holder and it’s an easy trap to fall into when you are experiencing success. The current Premier League champions Chelsea are no different. In the end they took the Premier League …
