Georginio Wijnaldum: Slow Starter or Solid Signing?

Georginio Wijnaldum: Slow Starter or Solid Signing?

Georginio Wijnaldum was signed from a relegated Newcastle United this summer in a transfer that was, to most, unexpected. The Netherlands international, who signed for Newcastle only last summer from Eredevisie outfit PSV, carried with him a reputation for drifting in and out of games a long with a price tag exceeding the 20 million pound mark. It was this, understandingly, that underlined many Liverpool fans' hesitation towards the transfer and, three league and three league starts into Wijnaldum's Liverpool …
James Milner Can't be the Long-Term Left-Back at LFC

James Milner Can't be the Long-Term Left-Back at LFC

"Milly can play there, especially in the style of play we think we should play. Full-back is not only a winger in the offence situations. It’s a really good position for Milly." Jurgen Klopp's comments in the post match Spurs press conference didn't go down too well with fans who had hoped the German manager would bring in a left-back before the transfer window shut on Wednesday evening. After selling Brad Smith, the only natural left-back the club have on the books …
Klopp's Reluctance To Play a Striker May Cost Liverpool

Klopp's Reluctance To Play a Striker May Cost Liverpool

The Reds have now played their three Premier League games before the International break. It's been a mixed bag. In the opening game against Arsenal they put on a 20 minute second half masterclass which completely blew the home side away as Klopp's side won a seven goal thriller. Next up was the trip to Turf Moor which saw a Liverpool side without the energetic Sadio Mane put in a lacklustre performance in a 2-0 defeat. Then the trip to …
Jurgen Klopp's System May Have No Place for Daniel Sturridge

Jurgen Klopp's System May Have No Place for Daniel Sturridge

For the first time in over a decade, Liverpool boast a vast array of striking options.   Gone are the days where the likes of David N'gog, Iago Aspas or Andriy Voronin would be forced to deputise in the absence of Liverpool's first choice striker - currently, Liverpool have four strikers capable of leading the attacking line, and doing it well. Roberto Firmino, Divock Origi, Danny Ings and Daniel Sturridge have all been used to spearhead Jurgen Klopp's 4-3-3 and, …
Henderson, Lallana and Milner - One too many?

Henderson, Lallana and Milner - One too many?

After being strongly linked with Mahmoud Dahoud many Liverpool supporters assumed the Reds wanted to bring in an orthodox centre-midfielder as opposed to a versatile, jack of all trades master of none type. The signing of Newcastle's Dutch International Gini Wijnaldum caught fans off guard. There's nothing orthodox about the new Liverpool no 5 and his arrival casts a shadow of doubt over the futures of James Milner, Adam Lallana and Jordan Henderson. The aforementioned three can all play as …
FSG and the Wage Bill Woe

FSG and the Wage Bill Woe

The feeling on social media around Liverpool is a little eerie as of late. The club have made some impressive signings in Loris Karius and Sadio Mane and look set to practically recoup what they spent on Christian Benteke yet the supporters online aren't how you'd imagine them to be after such news. They're discontent. Unhappy with the owners' apparent lack of spending. The club seemingly being left behind as rival clubs flex their financial muscle. The Liverpool Echo ran …
Liverpool and Dortmund: Uncanny Resemblance

Liverpool and Dortmund: Uncanny Resemblance

The Liverpool squad had been granted a clean slate after the club parted ways with Brendan Rodgers and appointed Jurgen Klopp on October last year. It gave them a chance to prove themselves to their new manager, who is arguably the most popular manager in world football. While many have successfully predicted some players would have difficulties to adapt to the intense system Klopp demands of his players, there were was only one who surprised us most. Adam Lallana. The …
Sadio Mane at RB Salzburg: A Reflection of the Future?

Sadio Mane at RB Salzburg: A Reflection of the Future?

Liverpool have signed Sadio Mane this week, continuing the trend of shopping on the South Coast. The reported fee has ranged between 30 million pounds to 36 million pounds depending on whom you would want to believe. It is a valid question whether the question is of great significance in that if you have stumped up 30 million, 2 or 4 million more should not be the point of focus. What should be the point of focus is the role …
Sturridge's New Creative Role?

Sturridge's New Creative Role?

Daniel Sturridge has been up against it since his move to Chelsea. He's had to prove he isn't a money grabber after leaving Manchester City to join Chelsea. He's had to prove he doesn't have a 'poor attitude'. He's had to prove to the masses that he isn't lazy; and that accusation in itself is lazy. He's had to convince people that he's worth the wait and the hassle, despite many injuries restricting him to limited appearances since his move …
