Rhian Brewster Signs New Deal As He Edges Closer To First-Team Picture

Rhian Brewster Signs New Deal As He Edges Closer To First-Team Picture

Rhian Brewster has agreed his first professional contract with Liverpool according to reports, easing fears over his future. The 18-year-old has been the source of some speculation in recent weeks, tipped to follow in the footsteps of 20-year-old Leon Bailey and U17 national teammate Jadon Sancho who left Manchester City for Borussia Dortmund by moving to the Bundesliga in a bid to gain regular first-team football. However, Jürgen Klopp and Michael Edwards have worked hard to ensure negotiations ended in …
Lucas Paquetá: Can Liverpool Catch the Carioca Isco?

Lucas Paquetá: Can Liverpool Catch the Carioca Isco?

Last week I wrote an article laying out the possible signings that Liverpool could consider as an alternative to Nabil Fekir. All of them had drawbacks, but my ultimate conclusion was that Thomas Lemar still made the most sense after a year of trying to sign him from Monaco. In the days since, Lemar has signed for Atletico. My second choice would have been Malcom, but he is in negotiations with Inter that are, in all likelihood, too far advanced …
Why The Fume Over Liverpool's Summer?

Why The Fume Over Liverpool's Summer?

I write these words on 14th June - World Cup day. It would be too much to suggest that you’ve noticed my absence from this website but, trust me, I haven’t stroked a keyboard for a fortnight. There are many reasons for this - work has been busy, every weekend has been booked up and my new novel is almost ready for publication, but there’s a more dominant reason. I’ve had nothing to say. Seriously, there isn’t much to get …
Republic of Liverpool - We're not English, we are Scouse

Republic of Liverpool - We're not English, we are Scouse

As it's only a few days until England kick off their World Cup campaign, I thought I would get into the patriotic spirit and put it down into words why, I would say, a large number of Liverpool fans, especially local fans, do not get behind the national team. In the 1970s, before Margaret Thatcher’s government, it would not be an uncommon appearance for union jacks to be waved in the Liverpool end, travelling Europe or on the Kop. Nowadays, …
Has “This Is Our Year” Ever Been More Justified At Liverpool?

Has “This Is Our Year” Ever Been More Justified At Liverpool?

"This is our year." That hopeful saying surrounding Liverpool's title aspirations has been used to ridicule Reds supporters since the glory days came to a crashing halt in 1990, often fairly so. Every year we seem to say it and invariably it ends in tears, with our pre-season predictions proved incorrect. A lot of the time it has been blind optimism, but there have also been occasions when the levels of confidence have been justified, following seasons of great promise. …
Liverpool and the World Cup - Pros and Cons

Liverpool and the World Cup - Pros and Cons

The World Cup is one of the biggest tournaments in the sporting calendar. It’s the most popular sporting event in the world and is watched by hundreds of millions, if not billions worldwide. For many football fans, it’s the pinnacle of the sport and the pinnacle of sport in general. But for a lot of football fans, it’s not that. Many fans of club football have different priorities, especially in England where the national team are less fondly regarded and …

Liverpool's 2018/2019 Premier League Schedule - Analysis

The fixture list is out: https://twitter.com/AnfieldIndex/status/1007310540669181952 You have probably already read reaction pieces and circled dates on the calendar. Even with the disappointing turn of events around Nabil Fekir failed (for now) transfer to Anfield the new season brings a lot of hope - a revamped midfield, a defence was very solid for over half a season and the magical attacking trio. But how about a more numbers-based approach on schedule. Last season, as part of my line up analysis …
Patience As The World Cup Disrupts LFC's Spending Spree

Patience As The World Cup Disrupts LFC's Spending Spree

For Liverpool fans it’s an exciting if slightly impatient time. Naby Keita and Fabinho are set to join the club on the 1st of July, symbolising a complete restructure in the club’s midfield. Fans are still expecting upgrades in every position – defence, midfield and attack – with the possibility of an upgrade on Loris Karius also in the works. But the issue is that this year, the transfer window is shorter. The World Cup is underway, and the window closes …

2018-19 Premier League fixture reaction. The season we win it?

With the recent disappointment of the proposed Nabil Fekir signing falling through, Liverpool fans have been in need of a distraction to take their minds off the circus that the transfer window rumour mill. Not only is the World Cup due to begin today (hooray football is back!), but the 2018-19 Premier League fixture list has also been released. As a fan base, we have the tendency to dwell on frustrations of the past, so the 2018-19 fixture list is …
The Case for Xherdan Shaqiri

The Case for Xherdan Shaqiri

Following an impressive start to their summer with the signing of Fabinho and the impending arrival of Naby Keita, Liverpool have looked to bolster what was their most glaring weakness of the season, shining brightly in the eyes of every fan who watched their side go down to Real Madrid in Kiev. A lack of depth. Xherdan Shaqiri, having been relegated with Stoke this season, has emerged as the cut-price option to bolster the Reds’ attacking unit. Should they bring …
