Expected to push on in an ‘easier’ run after their fast start, the Reds have had a good run of results, albeit with a couple of blips along the way. Jurgen Klopp’s men registered three victories on the trot, with expected home wins against West Brom (2-1) and Watford (6-1) sandwiching a thrilling 4-2 victory at bogey ground Selhurst Park, gaining two more valuable points … Continue reading Will the festive period derail or boost LFC’s title challenge?
Comparing current player with those of the past are just one of the many things fans indulge in. And that’s no different at Anfield – the most frequent of which is whether current captain Jordan Henderson can ever fill his predecessor’s shoes, one Steven Gerrard no less! The arrival of Dejan Lovren a year after the retirement of Jamie Carragher gave the Croatian international the … Continue reading Are these current LFC stars shades of former Anfield favourites?
The Reds did not just survive their tough start, they thrived. A victory did come at the Emirates, though we did not expect it to arrive in such thrilling manner. Jurgen Klopp’s men could not follow up with another victory at Burnley, and even failed to settle for a predicted point. As correctly predicted, another single point followed at White Hart Lane, before Klopp’s side … Continue reading Can Liverpool push on after a fast start?
As previously touched upon, Singapore’s talent pool is split into two pretty extreme categories – the high-performance, premier players and the inconsistent bunch who can’t seem to fulfil their potential. How can Sundram bring these players together and actually make a worthy enough impact in the 2016 AFF Suzuki Cup? How can Sundram prove he is the man to take Singapore forward? Go for a … Continue reading How can Sundram make an impact at the 2016 AFF Suzuki Cup?
Expectations are at its lowest as Singapore head into this year’s AFF Suzuki Cup. After last year’s brilliant start to the 2018 FIFA World Cup second round qualifying campaign – that miracle point in Japan the standout highlight – proved a false dawn, with back-to-back losses to Syria and amazingly Afghanistan at the end of that very same group stage, Singapore started 2016 with two … Continue reading What’s wrong with Singapore’s national team?
Heading into the second international break in the top four, Jurgen Klopp’s men have impressed many so far with an improved version of his high press from last season as well as a much improved goalscoring rate this season. The usual stars continue to maintain their form and show their inherent qualities – Brazilian duo Roberto Firmino and Philippe Coutinho comes to mind – but … Continue reading Who has starred so far, and who needs to step up for LFC?
Much was and has still been made of Liverpool’s relatively tough start to the new Premier League season. It was made worse, though by the Reds’ own choice, as their first home game was shifted to the fourth fixture of the season. However, looking at it as it is right now (barring any changes down the line), Liverpool’s fixture list can actually be broken down … Continue reading Will Liverpool survive their tough start?
Simon Mignolet Keep errors to a minimum. Loris Karius Push and eventually overtake Mignolet as No.1. Alex Manninger Be ready for anything. Nathaniel Clyne Maintain his high level of consistency. Dejan Lovren Always keep calm and composed. Joel Matip Strike up an understanding with the other central defenders and goalkeeper. Mamadou Sakho Simplify his game, especially when it comes to passing. Ragnar Klavan Lend his … Continue reading What Each LFC Player Must Achieve In 2016/17
So far, so good, it seems. There’s little to disagree with manager Jurgen Klopp’s transfer dealings so far. With some expert dealing – rarely said of Liverpool’s moneymen – the Reds are actually recouping large sums of money from the sale of several unwanted players, in turn giving Klopp even more room to manoeuvre in the market. More Height & Competition In The Back 5 … Continue reading Analysing LFC’s Summer 2016 Transfer Business
A problem that has plagued England for years, perhaps a decade or two. Not since England could call upon the services of Owen Hargreaves at Euro 2008 have they had a defensively-minded player in holding midfield. Scott Parker and Gareth Barry were probably the closest Fabio Capello could find, but their quality at international level was always in doubt – especially for the latter, after … Continue reading How BPL’s Surprise Packages Solves England’s Problem Position
