The Magic of The Top Four - Who Makes The Cut?

On paper Liverpool have the easier run in in the race for the top four, but will they be able to capitalise on a favourable set of fixtures? Man United dropped points, Man City dropped points, Arsenal dropped points, and even Chelsea stumbled in the face of Crystal Palace’s excellent new defensive signing, Mamadou Sakho. Conte’s side’s lead at the top has been cut to seven points, but are still widely considered to be champions elect. But anything could happen when it comes to the five clubs below them, and which three of this quintet will finish along with Chelsea continue reading

Liverpool 3, Everton 1 Anfield, Liverpool (52,920) Liverpool scorers: Mane 8′, Coutinho 31′, Orgi 60′ Everton scorer: Pennington 28′  Simon Mignolet – 6 Had very little to do in the first half, so decided the join in the fun. No Everton player completed more take-ons than Simon Mignolet in the first half. pic.twitter.com/OPL5J3FCBY — Andrew Beasley (@BassTunedToRed) April 1, 2017 Made a couple of good saves in the second period, but Everton were so bad it was difficult for him to have a good game. Nathaniel Clyne – 6 Positionally decent, but nothing of note other than a good cross continue reading

Points Shared at the Etihad as CL Qualification Remains Wide Open.

Manchester City 1, Liverpool 1. Match report by Umarah Naz. If ever an advert was needed for English Premier League football then Manchester City against Liverpool on Sunday afternoon was it. Embed from Getty Images Two teams who know no other way of playing than to attack the opponents goal. The 1-1 draw at the Etihad was a frenetic, end-to-end game that had everything but a winner. Some fantastic football, crunching tackles, mildly pathetic booing, unsuccessful penalty shouts, dubious yellow cards, possible red ones, some glaring misses, a cracking penalty, a great goal and to top it all off, the continue reading

Liverpool's top 6 record remains intact as Arsenal are sunk at Anfield

Liverpool 3, Arsenal 1 Match report by Umarah Naz. It’s never usually the case that a resounding 3-1 win over Arsenal would leave Reds infuriated but that’s what some may be feeling. Embed from Getty Images Infuriated because it comes a mere five days after a crushing defeat against a struggling Leicester team; one of those teams that Liverpool are so generously charitable against. Beating Arsenal should really be the perfect remedy for such fresh wounds but, unfortunately, it’s all been seen before, thus leaving everyone with a sense of dejavu. Just a few weeks ago, a fantastic win over continue reading

Liverpool Lament Leicester Loss

Leicester City 3, Liverpool 1 By Umarah Naz.  If there was any doubt that Claudio Ranieri’s brutal dismissal was orchestrated by the players then Leicester’s 3-1 drubbing of Liverpool put that to rest. Embed from Getty Images It seems the Italian’s departure was enough to spark life back into a dire Leicester side that hadn’t scored a goal in 540 minutes of football, yet stuck three past a Liverpool side still on holiday in La Manga. But as good as Leicester were, the Reds were shockingly abysmal. Much had been made of Jurgen Klopp taking full advantage of a belated continue reading

Luis Suarez: He's Not The Messiah, He's A Very Naughty Boy

By Aaron Cawley. For those of you who have watched Monty Python’s Life of Brian, you’ll get the title of this particular piece. Who’s the messiah? Well it’s Luis Suarez. The admiration from Liverpool fans for the Barcelona forward sickens me. Suarez is a great player, that, there is no doubt of, but his carry on and behaviour in his last two seasons at Liverpool was nothing short of despicable. Embed from Getty Images From courting a move to Arsenal, to his racist comment to Manchester United player Patrice Evra and the whole fiasco that followed that. Then there was continue reading

Dejan Lovren's New Contract: Why John? Why?

By Aaron Cawley. Throughout their illustrious history, Liverpool have always had top quality centre backs. Players like Sami Hyypia, Phil Thompson, Alan Hansen, Jamie Carragher, Phil Neal and Stéphane Henchoz, all invoke memories of sturdy Liverpool defences that didn’t get turned over too easily. Embed from Getty Images Liverpool have missed a strong pillar at the heart of its defence since Jamie Carragher retired in 2013, and over the last four years they’ve become some what of a leaky ship in defence. Brendan Rodgers attempted to plug the leaks when he brought in Mamadou Sakho and Dejan Lovren, but with the continue reading

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

The Liverpool Dance & Decline: Hate to Say I Told You So

The Dance, by Neil Devlin. ‘I told you so’. A simple phrase that can provoke such emotion when used. To the person who utters it, it is usually a moment of triumph, achievement or superiority. To the recipient, it denotes defeat, embarrassment or despair. Regrettably however, when it comes to Liverpool FC, none of these positive emotions need apply. Embed from Getty Images Today, like every year for the last three decades, I find myself uttering the phrase ‘I told you so’, but as with each year that has gone before I do not find any triumph in it. I continue reading

FSG at Liverpool: Should They Stay Or Should They Go?

By Aaron Cawley. If you are of a certain generation, you will remember a song from The Clash entitled, “Should I Stay Or Should I Go?”. But what does this song have to do with football? At the moment, there is a building faction within the Liverpool fan base that want current owners, FSG, out of the club. And I’m quite sure John W Henry has at least once thought about those famous song lyrics in difficult times. Embed from Getty Images Being a Liverpool fan in the current climate is difficult. We have just had a January where the continue reading
