Euro Incision - Gabriele Marcotti on Alisson

Euro Incision - Gabriele Marcotti on Alisson

On this episode of Euro Incision Nina is joined by Gabriele Marcotti as the pair discuss Liverpool's goalkeeping target Alisson. Gab gives an in-depth view on the keeper and if he'd suit and fit Jurgen Klopp's team. Gab also highlights his strength and weaknesses whilst offering comparisons to Manchester City's Ederson. He also answers subscriber questions listed below: - Omar Shah asks given his fairly short time at the top level in European football, would you have any doubts over his ability (is this just a one-off good season) or is he definitely destined to become a top, top keeper? - Omar Shah asks: In his opinion, looking at value for money and perceived long-term progression of the player, who would he opt for if he was Klopp, Alisson or Oblak? - Omar Shah asks: If he is a viable target, is he attainable in January or the Summer? - Sam McGuire asks - My issue would be is a keeper, who is 25-years-old, with less than 70 club appearances worth £45/50m - Subscriber Darragh Mc Cusker asks - Would Allison suit our style of play, does he command his box for crosses and corner - Subscriber Bard Nikolas Vik Steen asks: Don't you think Thomas Strakosha is a better option than Allison? A beast and just as good. Might he also be easier to get given our steal of Mo from Roma? - Final question on Alisson, would he be an upgrade on what we have currently? - Tim Hines is asking whether you know if it’s solely the release clause that LFC do not want or is it that Can and his agent are asking for a figure below what LFC feel is his market value? - Subscriber Sufian Abu Amshar asks - Do you think Emre Can would prefer to stay at LFC if he is guaranteed the no.6 spot? - Tabish Aleemullah aka Tubbs asks - What are your thoughts on Sergej Milinkovic-Savic (SMS) at Lazio and how he would fit in Klopp's Liverpool team + the likely fee required? - Jason Belk - Is there a Phil replacement playing anywhere in Italy All this and more on a special transfer edition of The Euro Incision podcast …

Liverpool Should Fear Nobody In Search For European Cup No.6

Liverpool Should Fear Nobody In Search For European Cup No.6

Liverpool just stuffed the so-called ‘best team in Europe right now’. They didn’t fluke a win against them - in fact, the eventual 4-3 scoreline was very generous on a Man City side who actually performed quite well. It was a victory that showed exactly how far the Reds have come with Jurgen Klopp in charge, and there is a growing feeling that something special is on the horizon at Anfield. Although the Premier League title has once again evaded …
Why Emre Can Will Become a World-Class Number Six

Why Emre Can Will Become a World-Class Number Six

Emre Can has been a player who has polarised the opinion of Liverpool fans, not just about how good he is but what his best position is also. Up until this season, many fans including myself believed he was most effective in the number 8 position, operating as a box to box midfielder. This role gives him the freedom to make those driving runs into the final third on a more regular basis, linking midfield with the attack without as …
Roberto Firmino: Underrated Brazilian The Heartbeat Of Klopp’s System

Roberto Firmino: Underrated Brazilian The Heartbeat Of Klopp’s System

Philippe Coutinho was probably regarded as the most talented of the ‘Fab Four’ prior to his departure, with Sadio Mane the speedster of the pack and Mo Salah the marksman who’s hit the ground running to provide a new lease of life to Klopp’s attacking force. Yet, there can be no argument that Roberto Firmino is Liverpool’s most important man. Sunday’s 4-3 thriller against Manchester City was a testament to that, with the Brazilian’s goal eerily similar to Robbie Fowler’s …
Why Liverpool Will Always Be Bigger Than Any One Player

Why Liverpool Will Always Be Bigger Than Any One Player

It took all of eight minutes to remind Anfield of one very special fact. Liverpool Football Club is bigger than any player. Alex-Oxlade Chamberlain’s driving run, emphatic finish and impassioned celebration perfectly emblemised the oft-romanticised ‘Liverpool spirit’ – the idea that you don’t buy a great player, rather a player becomes great in the cauldron that is Anfield. Like a gladiatorial pit in Rome; Anfield’s coliseum atmosphere is what decides the fate of its competitors, not their previous reputation or …
The Reality of Sadio Mane's Season

The Reality of Sadio Mane's Season

Sadio Mane is more than just the second line of a viral song about Liverpool F.C’s frontline. In 2016/2017 he was Liverpool’s best player, his form reflected in his 2nd place finish - behind his Liverpool compatriot Mohamed Salah - in 2017’s CAF African Player Of The Year awards. The Senegalese forward was so integral to the fortunes of his club that his departure to the African Cup of Nations ushered in a January slump of epic proportions. In the …
Liverpool 4-3 Man City: A Tactical Breakdown

Liverpool 4-3 Man City: A Tactical Breakdown

From start to finish, Liverpool's Premier League tie with Manchester City was electric. Essentially, two very similar schools of tactical thinking came together, and on this occasion, Klopp's relentless pressing from the front, numerical overloads, and astute counter-pressing positioning came out on top. Instead of breaking down the goals in this analysis, because a majority of them were from individual errors, we'll be looking at Liverpool's and City's shape, positioning and pressing, and how these, in themselves, created chances, and …
Why Liverpool don't need to replace Phil Coutinho... Yet

Why Liverpool don't need to replace Phil Coutinho... Yet

Sunday morning, a few hours before Liverpool kicked off against Manchester City, I was just about done. It hadn’t been the best day for Liverpool up until that point, as the toxic fever pitch and maelstrom of Liverpool fans’ complaints about everything from Jon Flanagan’s guilty plea right the way through to Liverpool deciding £90m was too much to bid for Thomas Lemar reached a crescendo. And I’d had enough. I didn’t want to see one more stupid, angry tweet …
Reborn Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain Continues To Excel

Reborn Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain Continues To Excel

If ever a day summed up why Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain's decision to trade Arsenal for Liverpool last August was an inspired one, it was Sunday. As the 24-year-old was sat preparing for the Reds’ eagerly-anticipated clash with Man City, his former club were blowing a lead and suffering defeat at Bournemouth, languishing in sixth-place in the Premier League in the process. In a parallel universe, Oxlade-Chamberlain could easily have been lining up at Dean Court in a horribly average Arsenal team …
What We've Learnt About Klopp's LFC | Part 3: The Reds Making Great Strides Forward

What We've Learnt About Klopp's LFC | Part 3: The Reds Making Great Strides Forward

Much has been made in recent months about Jurgen Klopp's stubbornness. From slow in-game changes to persevering with persistent underachievers. However, Klopp has come out fighting since the Spurs game and stuck the proverbial fingers up to the critics, with his team showing some really good form. This form culminated in what was a largely magnificent tactical performance against Man City (despite our defenders' best efforts to throw the game away!). Character The City game showed Klopp's ability to go …
Liverpool Press On Despite Distractions

Liverpool Press On Despite Distractions

Distractions are something no manager ever wants to deal with. The narrative for so many seasons gone awry at Liverpool or anywhere in sport usually surrounds a player dispute or an underlying negative that eventually pulled the whole team down. Back in 2015, around this time of year, reality started to set in that the Suarez replacements weren’t going to pull their weight, Champions League places were going to be a one-off and it seemed any little bit of bad …
