Sadio Sinks Spurs and Seduces Anfield

Liverpool 2, Tottenham Hotspur 0.  By Umarah Naz.  It seems fitting with Valentine’s Day around the corner that Liverpool have been reunited with their true love. Of course, I’m talking about Sadio Mané. Embed from Getty Images He has proven to be the heartbeat of the club this season, and his absence last month saw Liverpool’s pulse fall away with their title and cup dreams dying a cruel death. A top four berth is still very much alive for the Reds but the winless run needed to stop. And what better club to do it against then one of your continue reading

Klopp Calls The Shots As Sakho Saga Ends

By Umarah Naz. The long running Mamadou Sakho saga finally came to a close on transfer deadline day, when Crystal Palace snapped up the French international on loan for the remainder of the season. Embed from Getty Images This ended six months of furious speculation that had divided the Reds everywhere. Sakho versus Jurgen Klopp has been battle that has intrigued and torn Liverpool fans in equal measure. Both men boast their own huge following which made the situation all the more complicated. On the one hand, there’s a centre-back who was building up somewhat of an iconic status around continue reading

Sadio returns as LFC stop the rot: Liverpool 1, Chelsea 1

By Umarah Naz. A draw versus Chelsea at any other time of the season wouldn’t be such an unwelcome result, but Tuesday’s clash at Anfield was a must win for Liverpool if they wanted to have any say in the title race. Embed from Getty Images As it stands, a point isn’t enough, all things considered. Liverpool’s only saving grace was that Arsenal unexpectedly lost to Watford whilst Tottenham drew with Sunderland, leaving Liverpool in a healthy position for that all important Champions League spot. With games against Spurs, Arsenal and Manchester City coming up, Liverpool’s top four destiny is continue reading

Reds Devoured by Hungry Wolves: Liverpool 1, Wolves 2

By Umarah Naz. A car crash is the only way to describe the last week for Liverpool FC. Three home defeats in a row have left the Reds out of two cup competitions and with a title challenge crumbling away into a top four scrap. The embarrassment of these defeats have fans reeling at what has gone so horribly wrong with a team that was breathing down league leaders Chelsea’s neck up until New Years Eve. Embed from Getty Images Today’s 2-1 FA Cup loss to Wolverhampton Wanderers at Anfield compounded Jurgen Klopp’s ignominy, where Liverpool could find no answers continue reading

Liverpool Red-Faced as Anfield Defence Crumbles

By Umarah Naz. For all it’s bad publicity, 2016 was in fact a fantastic year. For Liverpool Football Club at Anfield at least. Embed from Getty Images It had become a fortress again, and one where Liverpool had only lost one match in the entire year. It was a run that fans could be mightily proud of and had visiting teams on the back foot before a ball had even been kicked. After all, home form is key in any clubs progress. But all good runs must come to an end at some point and there’s no shame in losing continue reading

Lucas Leiva Leads Liverpool Into Next Round of the Cup

By Umarah Naz. When Lucas Leiva scores for Liverpool, you just know that the universe is a little off kilter. Embed from Getty Images The last time such a rare phenomenon occurred was 2316 days ago, in September 2010, when we were all a lot younger and a little less grey-haired. If you were strange enough to bet on a Lucas goal, it certainly wouldn’t be from a header. But that’s exactly what Plymouth Argyle had the misfortune (for them) to witness in Wednesday nights FA Cup replay at Home Park. The golden locks of the Reds captain flew into continue reading

By Umarah Naz. Tentative would be the best word to describe the majority of Liverpool fans feelings before the clash against Manchester United at Old Trafford on Sunday evening. The home side came into the crucial game on the back of a nine match winning streak, whilst the visitors remain winless in 2017 in all competitions. Winless but not defeated. Reds have enjoyed an excellent season so far, (with the occasional blip) but no one can deny that the three draws and one loss since beating Manchester City on New Years Eve have been a downer. Hence, the apprehension in continue reading

12th Man Required as Karius keeps Liverpool in Race to Wembley

By Umarah Naz Liverpool will need their world famous twelfth man in a fortnights time at Anfield, when they face Southampton in the second leg of the EFL Cup semi-final. Embed from Getty Images Having suffered a disappointing 1-0 defeat at St. Mary’s in the first leg, Liverpool now have it all to do in the return leg to book their ticket to Wembley for next month. Jurgen Klopp reverted to a full-strength team after the youngsters had their opportunity to impress against Plymouth at the weekend. Loris Karius kept his place, as did Lucas Leiva and Emre Can. They continue reading

Liverpool 0, Plymouth Argyle 0 - Match Report

By Umarah Naz. Remember that one, single week in January that Liverpool had to recuperate from a packed fixture list? Well, it’s been filled. The Reds were held to a 0-0 draw today in the third round of the FA Cup by a Plymouth Argyle side that offered next to nothing at Anfield. After having made £600,000 for this tie alone, Plymouth backed it up by earning a replay at Home Park to be played a few days after the Premier League game against Manchester United. Embed from Getty Images Most people thought that it would be a walk in continue reading

Why Liverpool Fans Should Show Lovren Some Love

Obdurate: stubbornly refusing to change one’s opinion or course of action. There are a three main reasons people would choose to be the above. 1) It could be a specific belief where you actually think you’re right. 2) It may be that your knowledge of a certain subject is so vastly superior to everyone else’s, you really are right. 3) But it’s probably just that you’ve nailed your colours to the mast so vociferously, running around like a deranged know-it-all, that you run the danger of being proved a tad wrong. A tiny bit. Although I’d like to think that continue reading
