The view from Egypt on Mohamed Salah and flipping the script on Liverpool's 'misfiring' front three

10/18/2018
More
Cast your mind back to this stage of the season one year ago and Mohamed Salah sat on four goals from his first eight Premier League games of the campaign. Fast-forward 12 months and Liverpool’s superstar striker has netted just one goal fewer despite having to overcome the physical and emotional effects of what happened in Kiev and before, during and after the World Cup. But given the incredible feats he achieved in his debut season at Anfield, the spotlight is now very much on Salah, and...

The Keita, Lallana and Shaqiri questions – and the inherited players Klopp has improved the most

10/14/2018
More
Jurgen Klopp may have so far this season resisted the temptation to rotate the impressive squad he has put together in his three years as Liverpool boss, but that’s exactly what we have done for our latest View from the Kop podcast. Caoimhe O’Neill makes her debut on the show, and along with regulars, and fellow Reds fans, Paul Philbin and Neil Macdonald, and host Paul Wheelock, they kick-off by reflecting on the start to the campaign.

Ex-Liverpool striker and Reds-supporting manager and chairman shine spotlight on Non-League Day

10/13/2018
More
With Liverpool without a game this weekend due to the international break, we thought we would focus attention on football that is far removed from the Premier League for our latest podcast.

So to mark that, we spoke to three people who play, manage and are heavily involved in...

Post-Game: The lowdown as Liverpool and Manchester City cancel each other out in top-of-table clash

10/7/2018
More
Let's face it, that didn't live up to the hype, did it? But this afternoon’s 0-0 draw with Manchester City at Anfield does mean that Liverpool remain unbeaten after the first eight games of the season - and does mean they will go into yet another international break level on points at the top with the defending champions and an increasingly impressive Chelsea side. That would not have been the case had Riyad Mahrez not skied over a terrible late penalty for City. So, given that, was it a...

Liverpool made the perfect start to their Champions League campaign with a thrilling 3-2 win over Paris Saint-Germain at Anfield two weeks ago. But what we witnessed this evening was night and day compared to that as the Reds were beaten 1-0 by Napoli. Jurgen Klopp's side were just moments away from picking up what would have been an excellent point on the road. But Lorenzo Insigne’s injury-time winner ultimately ensured they got exactly what they deserved. As our Liverpool FC...

Blood Red: Can Daniel Sturridge earn a new Liverpool contract and are Chelsea now a likeable team?

One man dominates the latest Blood Red podcast, hosted by Joe Rimmer and also featuring James Pearce, Dan Kay and Theo Squires. And that man is Daniel Sturridge after his superb strike earned Liverpool a late but thoroughly deserved 1-1 draw at Chelsea on Saturday night.
