Dispelling the Myth that Klavan is Better Than Lovren

Dispelling the Myth that Klavan is Better Than Lovren

Mention the name Dejan Lovren to most Liverpool supporters and you'll be greeted with various responses many of which will be particularly negative. "He can't defend." "He's not good enough for Liverpool." "Klavan's better than him." We all know that Joel Matip is our best centre-back by a considerable margin, the man just oozes class and is a very good footballer, however, there is only one man who should partner him for the majority of this season and that's Lovren. …
The Importance of Moreno & Klopp's Biggest Success of the Summer

The Importance of Moreno & Klopp's Biggest Success of the Summer

The summer transfer window is now closed and Alberto Moreno is still a Liverpool player, this statement would've infuriated me six weeks ago. Despite not criticising the Spaniard as much as many Reds supporters I had came to the conclusion that although Moreno possesses many attributes which mean he should thrive in Klopp's Liverpool team it appeared he did not have the football brain or even attitude to want to improve and develop under the German. Although he's only started …
It's time for Emre Can to start dominating football matches

It's time for Emre Can to start dominating football matches

Putting contract issues aside, this season will be a decisive one for Emre Can. Whether he is to have a long term future at Anfield is still unknown but what is clear is that the injury suffered to Adam Lallana which is due to keep him out for at least two months and the ongoing problems with Phil Coutinho means the German powerhouse has a great opportunity to stamp his authority on this team. Despite questions still remaining as to …
How should Liverpool approach the domestic cups?

How should Liverpool approach the domestic cups?

Despite having the added demands of European football, the domestic cup competitions should be seen by Liverpool supporters and more importantly the manager as genuine chances of silverware this season. This is not to say big players shouldn't be rested in the league cup and FA cup, they will have to be. But with Liverpool's strength in depth in key areas such as defence, central midfield and up front these provide the Reds with a perfect opportunity to give their …
Could Ryan Kent be a pivotal part of Liverpool's squad next season?

Could Ryan Kent be a pivotal part of Liverpool's squad next season?

With speculation surrounding the Naby Keita transfer appearing to fizzle out, it seems more likely than not the Reds won't get their number one transfer target for this summer. As a result, there has been a lot of debate amongst supporters as to whether the club should turn their attention to signing another winger as a back up to both Mo Salah and Sadio Mane or in fact pursue an alternative to Keita. In an ideal world where our owners …
No van Dijk? No Replacement? Equals Failed Transfer Window

No van Dijk? No Replacement? Equals Failed Transfer Window

In the last three seasons the Reds have conceded 140 goals in the Premier league, that is an average of 46.7 goals a season. Simply not good enough. There's nothing better than seeing an attacking Liverpool side at their fluid, dynamic best causing havoc to opposition defences, but for the previous five years, possibly longer,  we've seen our defence capitulate all too often. 4 against Bournemouth, 3 against Leicester, 3 against Watford, 2 against a dire Sunderland side. These are …
Will Klopp Trust Liverpool's Youngsters to Deliver Next Season?

Will Klopp Trust Liverpool's Youngsters to Deliver Next Season?

Having watched Klopp very closely over the past year and a half, it has become clear that there is one trait that he values above anything else and that's trust. A player can have all the ability in the world but if the German doesn't trust him to fit into his system and to play the way he wants them to then you simply won't have much of a future at Anfield. Klopp is so particular about both his defensive …
Can Sturridge & Origi be trusted to be Firmino's back ups next season?

Can Sturridge & Origi be trusted to be Firmino's back ups next season?

With reports emerging that Klopp is happy with our frontline heading into next season it's time we took a closer look at whether the options of Daniel Sturridge, Divock Origi, Domonic Solanke and to a lesser extent Danny Ings are good enough and reliable back ups to Liverpool's new number 9 Roberto Firmino. Personally I'm a big fan of Firmino leading the line for this Liverpool team, he possesses every attribute a striker playing in Klopp's system requires, he holds …
Why Lallana should still be lining up in Liverpool's midfield next season

Why Lallana should still be lining up in Liverpool's midfield next season

With the imminent signing of Mo Salah it looks increasingly certain that Philippe Coutinho will be moved back into midfield next season to add some much needed creativity from deeper areas. The Reds found it hard to break down teams who played with a low block last season, therefore, having someone like Coutinho on the ball more often in central areas, dictating the play can only have a positive impact on the team. However, due to this change many fans …
Why Liverpool Should Renew Their Interest in Ben Chilwell

Why Liverpool Should Renew Their Interest in Ben Chilwell

Left-back has been a position that Liverpool have struggled with over the past couple of seasons and although James Milner has done an admirable job there this season the Reds are in desperate need of a specialist left-back. There was outrage amongst much of the fan base when it became clear Milner would be Liverpool's first choice going into last season with Alberto Moreno his deputy. Personally I'm a big fan of Milner and think he is much better at …
