The 'Keeper Conundrum!

The 'Keeper Conundrum!

Heading into the summer transfer window, it has been well documented that as a club, we have some areas in which we are particularly sparse in terms of playing staff - left-back and centre forward spring immediately to my mind. But one area in which we definitely aren't short is in between the sticks, but that still doesn't stop the newspapers linking us to more or less every half decent goalkeeper in Europe. It's not just the senior ranks in …
A Big Summer Ahead for Klopp

A Big Summer Ahead for Klopp

Since the turn of the year, Liverpool have been inconsistent at best; the Reds have played well in getting results against the big teams (beating Arsenal and Tottenham Hotspur, and taking points off Chelsea and Manchester United), but have struggled against the lower-ranked sides (losing to Swansea City and Hull, failing to beat Sunderland, and even last weekend’s win over Burnley wasn’t pretty). This is Klopp’s biggest problem, as it was Rodgers before him, and Dalglish’s before that. It could …
Do these loan players have a future with the Reds?

Do these loan players have a future with the Reds?

There are a number of notable players currently enjoying spells away from Anfield, but with only three months left of the season, will they be welcomed back into the squad come the summer or will they be shipped out again, temporarily or permanently? There are currently 13 senior players out on loan; ranging from former PSG captain Mamadou Sakho at Crystal Palace to 22-year-old striker Jack Dunn at Tranmere Rovers. Some of them are quality players who just needed game …
In Times of Despair, The Academy Brings Hope

In Times of Despair, The Academy Brings Hope

After another damaging defeat at Hull City yesterday, Jurgen Klopp's Reds are now five league games without a win (3D, 2L) and a turn in form is now vital if the First Team want to be playing Champions League football next season. However, all is not lost for Liverpool, as Neil Critchley's U18's show. The Liverpool youngsters are currently third in the North Division of the U18 Premier League and look to be heading into Group 1 to fight for …
Is Klopp's reluctance to make changes costing Liverpool wins?

Is Klopp's reluctance to make changes costing Liverpool wins?

Editors Note: This article was written before the loss to Wolves. So we are now twenty-seven days in to 2017 and the Reds have won just one of their seven games in the New Year, drawing three (admittedly a good point at Old Trafford) and losing three. Even taking away the results from the FA Cup and EFL Cup matches, that leaves us with just two points from a possible nine since the turn of the year; by contrast, Chelsea have six …
9th to 2nd at Christmas: What a Difference a Year Makes

9th to 2nd at Christmas: What a Difference a Year Makes

Twelve months ago, Liverpool were sitting ninth in the Premier League table with just twenty-four points from the first seventeen games. Jurgen Klopp had been in charge for just two months, and hadn't really had the effect that we all hoped. In fact his record was worse than his predecessor Brendan Rodgers, averaging just 1.33 points per game in his first nine league games compared to 1.5 for Rodgers in his last eight. Going into Christmas, we had scored just …
Decisive December? - Crucial Month for Liverpool's Season

Decisive December? - Crucial Month for Liverpool's Season

Everyone always says that nothing is won in December, and they'd be absolutely right, but things can certainly be lost over the busy Christmas period. Between now and the FA Cup Third Round on the first weekend in the New Year, the Reds will play six matches - including the visit of West Ham United on Sunday 11th. This includes a trip to Goodison in the first Merseyside derby of the season plus the visit of Pep Guardiola's Manchester City. …

Can Sturridge Replace Mane During AFCON or Does Klopp Need to Buy?

Can Sturridge Replace Mane During AFCON or Does Klopp Need to Buy?

Saido Mane signed for Liverpool over five months ago in a £34 million deal from last Saturday's opponents Southampton. The Senegalese international has played in eleven of the Reds' twelve league games so far, interestingly the one game that he didn't appear in was the one game we have lost this season - the away trip to Burnley on the second weekend of the season. Mane has played a key role so far in the Reds' ascension to the upper …
