    Europa League Quarter-Final 2nd Leg: Dortmund (H)

    By Gary Fulcher. Thursday night’s Europa League quarter-final second leg tie against Borussia Dortmund – 8.05pm kick off UK time – has the makings of being one of those classic European nights at Anfield, with the tie finely balanced at 1-1 following the first-leg in Germany. Liverpool know a 0-0 draw or a victory of […]

    Managers, and The Law of Diminishing Returns

    Managers, and The Law of Diminishing Returns

    By Paul Tomkins. Never go home, they say. Never return to where you had success. But is this true? It’s possible to think of several examples of managers struggling second time around at a club, but equally, there are those, like Jupp Heynckes, for whom things got even better upon their return. But what’s the […]

    By Daniel Rhodes. Apart from the ridiculous second half against Southampton, we’ve been on an impressive run of performances lately. This one though, with a heavily rotated side including Ojo and Stewart, produced a stunning exhibition, especially in the second half when Origi came on. The rest is for subscribers only.

    Dortmund 1 Liverpool 1: In-Depth Tactical Analysis

    Heading into this game, Dortmund had something of a minor injury crisis with their first choice centre-backs and key midfielder Gundogan injured. While the German playmaker remained out of the game, both Hummels and Papastathopoulos were back with the former being recalled in the starting XI. All this meant Tuchel had the chance to mostly […]

    Klopp and Liverpool’s 39th Step of Progress

    By Paul Tomkins. Despite dropping points in the past two games from leading positions, Liverpool showed enough against Southampton – in a near-perfect first half – and Spurs (for the whole game) to suggest a team heading in the right direction. Progress is rarely linear. There will be downs as well as ups; form comes […]

    By Paul Tomkins. Liverpool FC haven’t signed Mario Götze, but appear to be in pole position with his time at Bayern nearing an end (one year to go as of this summer), and with him having been out of favour under Pep Guardiola. That said, Bayern are about to change manager, and Götze, still just 23, could […]

Fonte, returning from a one game ban, replaced Targett, with Bertrand returning to his place at left-back after one game at centre-back.  Wanyama, returning from a 6-game suspension, and Mane, who was successful in his appeal against his red card at Stoke last time […]

    LFC Have Momentum! … LFC Lose Momentum!

    By Paul Tomkins. Losing is a weird thing in that it hurts more as soon as you stop being used to it. And of course, it hurts even more if you’re 2-0 up, with the chances to have been 5-0 up, and then manage to throw it away; in other words, the Reds totally “Skrtelled it” today. […]
