Where Has It All Gone Wrong For Liverpool

By Aaron Cawley. At the start of the season, if you had asked any Liverpool fan what they expected they would have said a decent cup run and a Champions League place. So far, Liverpool have had that decent cup run, getting knocked out of the EFL Cup semi-final to Southampton, losing 2-0 on aggregate. In the league, Liverpool currently sit fourth, two points ahead of fifth placed Manchester City and four points ahead of Manchester United, who are down in sixth.

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.

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

The former Shakhtar player was courted by Liverpool before he joined Klopp’s Dortmund in 2013, and despite being up and down under the management of the man who signed him, he returned to top form under Klopp’s replacement Thomas Tuchel. Embed from Getty Images His good form prompted Manchester United to sign him in the summer of 2016, and the continue reading
