FSG – Follow The Moores and Cash In

When the Moores family put their majority stake in Liverpool Football Club up for sale in 2003, it was largely driven by an acceptance that they simply could not compete with rivals’ riches. Writing to The Times in May 2010, just over three years after his ill-fated decision to sell to Tom Hicks and George Gillett, David Moores explained, “The decision to sell was taken in 2003, when it became clear that greater investment in the club was needed than …

Nathaniel Clyne - Bad News Is Better Than No News

On the face of it, the prospect of Nathaniel Clyne, Liverpool’s first choice right-back and valuable first team player, being injured for up to three months after having surgery on a back injury is definitely not a good thing. The reasons why it’s a bad thing are inherently obvious, and this article isn’t here to be balanced.

Liverpool's Attack - A Stats Analysis

After a string a good results the struggles of September and October are seemingly gone. The mighty Reds are on a 3 game winning streak in all tournaments that saw them score 10 goals and concede just 1.

Liverpool's Full Strength Attacking Options

Liverpool's Full Strength Attacking Options

At no point this season has it seemed like Liverpool have had all their best players available. A "back injury" for Coutinho, a suspension and a pulled hamstring for Mane and a lengthy injury to Lallana meant that players in the starting XI were moved around to accommodate for the missing names. The biggest area to take a hit due to injuries was the midfield, whilst we could still field a strong three of Henderson, Can and Wijnaldum it didn't …

Divock Origi: Liverpool's Forgotten Belgian

With Liverpool blessed with plenty of attacking talent in the form of Mohamed Salah, Sadio Mane, Roberto Firmino and Daniel Sturridge, Divock Origi’s season-long loan to Wolfsburg carries a lot of importance in terms of how his future on Merseyside will pan out.

Having signed back in 2014, featuring in …
Crisis? What Crisis at Liverpool FC?

Crisis? What Crisis at Liverpool FC?

At the start of the season I made a rather large and controversial defence of Liverpool’s ability to win the title this season with the current squad. Here in November, 12 points off the pace, that’s looking increasingly like a pipedream, but I stand by the majority of the points that I made in the article. In terms of opponents, the only Premier League team that we are currently miles behind is Man City, a possibility that I suggested, with …
Signs of progress for Liverpool following the Wembley debacle

Signs of progress for Liverpool following the Wembley debacle

After the horrible result against Spurs scrutiny has been on Jurgen Klopp to see if he could get a response from his players. 3 games later, with 10 goals scored and 1 conceded, it is fair to say that Klopp has the ability to get a reaction from his players in times of adversity.
