Philippe Coutinho - On The Brink Of Greatness

Philippe Coutinho - On The Brink Of Greatness

Liverpool supporters are experiencing something very special this season, the realisation of world class potential in front of their very eyes. Ladies and gentleman, this is the season that Philippe Coutinho has decided to remove the gloves and raise the stakes. To become the player supporters all hoped he could be and not just produce game changing moments, but season defining performances. For years Philippe Coutinho has shown flashes of brilliance, that you must applaud. A moment of sublime skill, …
Risk underestimating Jürgen Klopp's Liverpool, at your own peril

Risk underestimating Jürgen Klopp's Liverpool, at your own peril

It's been almost a year since Jürgen Klopp was appointed at Liverpool football club. Whilst supporters instantly fell for his charisma, charm and wit, I've always felt an air of scepticism over the clubs future success under his tenure. Supporters fear the financial power of the clubs nearest rivals and the draw that money has to attract established talent. Crucially however Jürgen Klopp doesn't share that same doubt. He's a manager that believes in his own ability and that of …
Attack, Liverpool's best form of defence

Attack, Liverpool's best form of defence

Three games into the new Premier League campaign, Liverpool have conceded six goals, whilst scoring just five. Experiments with players operating in new positions, no clear preferred back five, or defined midfield protection, result understandably in questions being asked, even at this early stage. The mistakes and uncertainty will fail to alleviate fans fears, that the defensive frailties of seasons past, have once more not been addressed this summer. When Jürgen Klopp arrived, the area I thought he'd address first …
Sadio Manè - Catch Me, If You Can

Sadio Manè - Catch Me, If You Can

One ingredient missing from Liverpool's attack in recent years is raw unadulterated pace. With the £30 million signing of Sadio Manè, from Southampton, he brings this essential, game changing ability to this side. It was clear Jürgen Klopp was looking for an attacker who provided pace, with Ousmane Dembele and Leroy Sane strongly scouted, but ultimately it was the fleet footed Sadio Manè who was signed. Eyebrows were understandably raised about yet another player targeted from Southampton, yet I feel …
Jordan Henderson - Struggling under the weight of expectation

Jordan Henderson - Struggling under the weight of expectation

As Jürgen Klopp makes the final necessary changes to shape and mould his Liverpool squad, ahead of the up and coming season; speculation still remains over the long term future and captaincy of Jordan Henderson amongst supporters. It's a crucial season for everyone connected with the club, but especially Jordan, coming off the back of a frustrating, injury stricken campaign. He'll be hoping to find some form and consistency, whilst establishing and holding onto a place in Jürgen's starting 11. …
Jürgen Klopp - No Room For Sentimentality

Jürgen Klopp - No Room For Sentimentality

With the transfer window open and in full swing, it's a time when Liverpool supporters completely lose all their inhabitations and start offering up players to the footballing gods, in hope of the gift of a positive season ahead. To the fanbase, most players are ripe to be the sacrificial lamb, very few are sacred enough to be spared. It's this mentality most hope Jürgen Klopp will adopt, as he goes about moulding, trimming and shaping his squad for the …
Forget the past, Forget the future - It's time to embrace the here and now

Forget the past, Forget the future - It's time to embrace the here and now

Liverpool Football Club stands at a crossroads. A club blessed with the most illustrious of histories, struggling to find success in the modern game. For too long our supporters have focused on the clubs past achievements, past players and past managers. A fanbase living in the splendour or the squalor, of years long past. I've always found it important to embrace the past, as it moulds and shapes the club we've become, the supporters we now are. But we need …
Liverpool Supporters - From Doubters, to Non Believers

Liverpool Supporters - From Doubters, to Non Believers

I understand, you're scarred. A fanbase living in perpetual fear, of the failings from previous managers and previous owners. Unable to let go of all the nearly moments, of all the false dawns. You're sick of word transition, of buying potential. Tired of watching rivals attract some of the finest players in Europe; while your club conducts the longest transfer saga's in human history. All the while knowing your club will still raid Southampton for what feels like a 17th …
Nathaniel Clyne - Liverpool's Most Underated Player?

Nathaniel Clyne - Liverpool's Most Underated Player?

There's a strange narrative surrounding Nathaniel Clyne, a divide amongst Liverpool supporters. Some argue he's the finest right-back in the country, others doubt his contribution and want him to be replaced. For a player of such stability and consistency it amazes me that he draws such negative attention. So I thought best to explore both sides of this argument, discovering the reasons and the factors that drive them. Signed last summer for a fee of £12.5 million, a relative snip …
Daniel Agger - The Great Dane

Daniel Agger - The Great Dane

When the news broke last week that Daniel Agger was going to retire aged just 31, I was devastated. Here stands a player, who was a personal hero of mine, so cruelly robbed of what could have been the finest of careers, due to the failings of his body. It's a narrative of the nearly moments, of wondering what quite could have been, for one of the most talented defensive players the club has signed this century. Whenever anyone discusses …
