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

Is Daniel Sturridge Still Important To Liverpool?

By Aaron Cawley. Daniel Sturridge, the fastest ever player to score fifty goals for Liverpool. The player who spends more time on the treatment table than on the pitch, yet still has a massive following amongst fans. Embed from Getty Images This following is something I don’t understand. For a little over fourteen months, I have said it is time for Liverpool to cash in on the injury-prone striker. He doesn’t fit the Jürgen Klopp model as he doesn’t seem to have the ability or desire to press from the front as Klopp expects his forward players to do. This season Sturridge continue reading

Those Pesky Day Trippers and the Anfield Atmosphere Problem

The atmosphere at Anfield is shit at the moment, this is something Jürgen Klopp has attempted to change on more then on occasion by trying to inspire fans to get behind the team. But according to some fans the reason that the atmosphere is so flat is solely down to pesky day trippers. Embed from Getty Images You know the ones. They fly into Liverpool every match-weekend, spending an extraordinary amount of money to get to games, and when they do they get there they’re the ones who have taken tickets from real Liverpool fans, those who live in and continue reading

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. Embed from Getty Images But it seems things are starting to unravel on the pitch. Liverpool are without a 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

Is Jürgen Klopp Above Criticism?

By Aaron Cawley, Jürgen Klopp took over as Liverpool manager on the 8th October 2015, replacing the sacked Brendan Rodgers. Embed from Getty Images To date Klopp has been manager of Liverpool for 75 top flight games, winning 36, drawing 24 and losing just 15 games. He currently has a win percentage of 48%. If you compare Klopp’s win rate with that of the last three Liverpool managers he has a better win ratio than Kenny Dalglish, who had a win percentage of 47.30% with the same amount of games under his belt as Klopp. Brendan Rodgers had a win 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

Jurgen Klopp on Manchester United and 'world class' Mkhitaryan

Jurgen Klopp is expecting a different Manchester United side the the one which parked the bus at Anfield earlier in the season, and he says a big reason for their improvement is the introduction of the “world class” Henrikh Mkhitaryan. 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
