The January Transfer Window - A Time For Trust

The January Transfer Window - A Time For Trust

And so the time is upon us once again. As December draws to a close, the sense of excitement and anticipation increases with the prospect of the of the January transfer window opening once more. Twitter is abuzz as the rumour mill goes into overdrive, irritating clickbait articles spread like a common cold and everyone throws in their two pennies worth as to who their club should or shouldn’t be signing. As a Liverpool fan, transfer windows are as exhausting …
Liverpool FC - A Review of 2016

Liverpool FC - A Review of 2016

With another trip around the sun completed and the festive period behind us (by the time you read this), let’s look at the Red year and see exactly what we have and haven’t learned. January A brand new year lay ahead. A time for renewal and rejuvenation. A chance to draw a line under everything and begin again with the fresh wash of a new year across our backs. It took ten minutes for Liverpool to concede a goal and …
January - Transfer or Youth for Liverpool?

January - Transfer or Youth for Liverpool?

Is there a reason to buy players in January? Isn’t it better to show your true believe in your own squad and the players you have right now and wait until the summer, when there is more time for everything? I believe that any sort of signing helps in a certain way, even if it’s a failure from a footballing perspective in the future. With any new signing coming in, there is a new impuls, excitement from people at the …
Liverpool's Team of 2016

Liverpool's Team of 2016

It's cliche I know but a year in football is a long time. If you compared December 2015 and December 2016 they're almost unrecognisable. After the Boxing Day fixtures in 2015 Liverpool were in 8th position with 27 points and a -1 goal difference. Watford and Crystal Palace where both ahead of the Reds and Everton were just a single point behind. Going into the game against Stoke City on the 27th December Liverpool are 2nd in the league with 37 …
Two Sides of Klopp - Part Two: Pace

Two Sides of Klopp - Part Two: Pace

For all that he's done throughout his career there are still people who believe Jurgen Klopp is a one trick pony. There's a misconception that his playbook had just the one page; the blitzkrieg approach. Pundits and media alike questioned the long-term viability of it because teams who sat back reportedly nullified it. After a few questionable performances it was confirmed*. Jurgen Klopp had been found out. He'd been exposed. His recipe for success was exclusive to the Bundesliga. The …
Celebrating the Quiet People: Wijnaldum & Klavan

Celebrating the Quiet People: Wijnaldum & Klavan

The recent victories against Middlesbrough and Everton have thrust the usual names into the spotlight. Adam Lallana took the headlines in the North East and, a few days later, fans of both colours were all about Sadio Mane, either with a deep, nourishing love in their hearts or with a ‘jammy redshite bastard’ tone. I'd like to drag these stars from the stage for a minute and focus on those in the background. It’s Christmas after all. Share the wealth. …

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 …
Daniel Sturridge A Crucial Figure Between Now & May

Daniel Sturridge A Crucial Figure Between Now & May

Without Daniel Sturridge, Liverpool would not have beaten Everton at Goodison Park. It really is as simple as that. The 27-year-old was introduced late in the day at the home of the Reds’ local rivals, and every time he got the ball, it felt as though something may happen. He looked bright and unpredictable, and you sensed that he was the last person Everton’s defenders wanted to see enter the fray, with legs and minds tiring. It was Sturridge’s run …
