Reds Out Of Carabao Cup

The Liver Bird at related • 0 views
Liverpool were knocked out of the League Cup by Leicester last night despite appearing to control the game in the entire first half.
The Reds once again came unstuck after creating dangerous plays and chances galore but failing to find the back of the net. There's no denying that some of Liverpool's passing and movement is a joy to watch but what's the point in racking up 600 odd passes if you aren't gonna score?

Two Trips To Leicester This Week

The Reds face Leicester twice this week and on both occasions away from home. The first trip on Tuesday night is a League Cup tie with the following fixture in the league on Saturday.
Liverpool's 1-1 draw with Burnley this weekend once again displayed their defensive frailties and in a cup match when it's all or nothing the Reds will have to be careful at the back.

Five Things We Learned From The Sevilla Draw

1 Same old defence Liverpool just can't seem to get out of this defensive rut, I don't even know what the answer is other than perhaps a complete rethink of tactics and training which seems very rash but the Reds need some kind of defensive intervention.
Dejan Lovren on Wednesday night should have easily prevented Sevilla's first goal but it's not even just him, the whole back four is a strange and disjointed set up at the moment.

Liverpool enter the Champions League group stages on Wednesday evening for the first time since 2014. The Reds' three year absence has felt like a lifetime to most fans and after a favourable draw in the group, all eyes are on Jurgen Klopp's side to open up our European season in a winning fashion.

Liverpool are no strangers to Sevilla having faced them extremely recently in the 2015/2016 Europa League final.

Mané, Sané... Absolutely Barmé

What the hell just happened? I genuinely felt confident going into this match and while a loss wouldn't have been such a surprise, a 5-0 loss definitely is. Liverpool's chances against Manchester City capitulated after the sending off of Sadio Mané at 37 minutes.

Liverpool Batter Arsenal In 4-0 Anfield Win

Liverpool walked away from Anfield on Sunday afternoon with all three points after an emphatic victory over an extremely dire Arsenal side. The Gunners offered absolutely nothing in front of goal leaving Loris Karius with very little to do.

The lack of goalkeeping requirement was perhaps a blessing in disguise for the Reds as Karius looked nervous on occasion stepping in to the role after months without a game.

So firstly, at 4:15am this morning, or some ungodly hour close to that, Liverpool drew Leicester away in the League Cup. Whilst we should care, none of us really do at the moment because we're all still hyped about the Hoffenheim win.
The Reds' 4-2 (Agg 6-3) victory over the German side means they have secured their place in Pot 3 of the Champions League draw which will take place by the time I have uploaded this post to blogger (don't worry I'll add commentary at the end).

1) Trent double A What a goal from the youngster and what a superb way to open your score card, by netting your first goal for the club in a Champions League qualifier with a beautiful free kick that also happens to make you the youngest Liverpool goalscorer the competition has seen (both as the European Cup and as the Champions League).

Same old problems, same old Liverpool. The 3-3 draw with Watford has only highlighted our pre-existing issues which don't appear to be anywhere near solved. With a defence looking completely lost and a midfield struggling to pass freely it was a frustrating outing a Vicarage Road on Saturday afternoon for the Reds.

Welcome back to The Liver Bird for the eighth year of me blogging about the Reds! Let's get stuck straight in with a preview for the opener against Watford shall we? Coutinho I can't really type this post without bringing up Couts can I? On Wednesday evening the Reds rejected a £90 million bid from Barcelona for the magician, it's the second time they've come knocking this season, but manager Jurgen Klopp has no plans to let one of his star players go.

So, just like last year I'm taking part in the work's predictor league, it's great fun and as it turns out I'm actually not too bad at predicting results. My downfall however was my season prediction sheet that you have to submit at the start of the season.

Let's compare actual results with mine shall we?

Lucas to Lazio and more transfer talk

It looks increasingly likely that Italian outfit Lazio will seal the signing of Lucas Leiva this week for £5 million. The Brazilian entered his 10th year at Liverpool Football Club in 2017 and while it's impossible to deny that his time here has consisted of some ups and downs, overall he has been a phenomenal servant to the club.
