Liverpool and the Business Not Done This Summer

Liverpool and the Business Not Done This Summer

I’ve already written here on Anfield Index about the business that Liverpool have done in the transfer market this summer, but what seems to have become a real bode of contention with a large number of fans is the business not done by the club this summer. The obvious thing that comes to mind on this subject is the players not signed. The lack of a marquee signing has irked some and worried others, but it is something I do …
Good or bad business by Liverpool this summer?

Good or bad business by Liverpool this summer?

It’s been a busy summer of ins and outs at Anfield so far this summer, with more to come it seems. But, has this been a good window for Liverpool with the business that has been done? Players In Joel Matip and Marko Grujic arrived this summer, but both deals were agreed back in January, with Matip a free transfer following his contract at Schalke 04 expiring and Grujic staying at Red Star Belgrade on loan. Grujic immediately captures your …
Liverpool's Scatty Transfer Window?

Liverpool's Scatty Transfer Window?

Despite the general consensus being Liverpool have had a fairly solid transfer window there have been questions raised regarding the clubs' strategy and why, to those on the outside, it seems rather disjointed. The confusion seems to surround the signings of Sadio Mane and Gini Wijnaldum. The pair arrived for a combined £55 Million after the pursuits of other players came to an end. The press had identified the other players as top targets. The likes of Alex Teixeira, Mario …
Liverpool Fans & The Battle for the Transfer Window Trophy

Liverpool Fans & The Battle for the Transfer Window Trophy

It was a year ago that I wrote here on Anfield Index about the Transfer Window Trophy, an imaginary piece of silverware that rival fans battle over with growing ferocity. It seems to me that in the past year, little has changed and if anything, the battle for the Transfer Window Trophy has got worse and more intense. Social media is full of it, a determination to fight over almost every transfer in the market, regardless of whether or not …
Nelson Semedo: A Perfect Understudy for Clyne

Nelson Semedo: A Perfect Understudy for Clyne

We need full-backs for both positions. Whether we argue that Alberto Moreno isn’t performing well and must be replaced/upgraded, or the lack of depth in Clyne’s position, Liverpool need to dive into the transfer market once more to fill a void. For the latter, it’s not about the need of an upgrade. Nathaniel Clyne has been immense for his first season at Liverpool, and the £12.5M we’ve paid to Southampton now seems like a bargain for someone that would sort …
Jordan Amavi to Solve the Left-Back Problem?

Jordan Amavi to Solve the Left-Back Problem?

French media outlet Le Parisien broke the news on Wednesday evening that Liverpool were reportedly interested in bringing Aston Villa's left-back Jordan Amavi to Anfield. The highly thought of French u21 international only featured on 10 occasions for VIlla following on from his £9 million move from Nice before an ACL tear put a premature end to his debut season in England. Although he is back fit and in training, VIlla boss Roberto Di Matteo is determined to ease him …
Why Gini Wijnaldum to Liverpool Makes Sense

Why Gini Wijnaldum to Liverpool Makes Sense

It's a link that not many saw coming. Newcastle's Gini Wijnaldum is the surprise target for Liverpool as the Reds look to move on from their failed pursuits for Gladbach's Mahmoud Dahoud and Udinese's Piotr Zielinski. Both had been linked heavily with Liverpool for months now but with very little movement in negotiations it appears Jurgen Klopp has got over the pair quick enough as the latest Twitter rumours seem to indicate Wijnaldum will be on the plane with the …
The

The "Marquee" Signing Conundrum

As a Liverpool fan who uses Twitter as a medium to get most news about the club, life has not been great. The sheer agony amongst our fans over the lack of a big-money signing is astounding. These are the same guys who were licking their lips at us having signed Jurgen Klopp in October, and given him a contract until 2022, at the beginning of this month. To put it simply then, they were excited about Klopp without knowing …
Georginio Wijnaldum: Klopp's New Weapon?

Georginio Wijnaldum: Klopp's New Weapon?

As Jürgen Klopp continues to assemble a litany of players for his foray into the 2016/17 Premier League, and Liverpool fans continue to freak out and overreact to even the tiniest bit of news, one player has burst onto the public sphere of Liverpool transfers without much of a prior whisper. Instead, Reds fans were greeted by news of Wijnaldum’s possible – and by all accounts imminent – signing for the first time when the news broke among journalists. The …
Klopp's Adding Experience to the Liverpool Squad

Klopp's Adding Experience to the Liverpool Squad

Football blurs logic. In most walks of life when you say somebody is experienced at a job it means they have firsthand experience in that role, it doesn't mean they're just getting on age wise. Yet in football there seems to be a misconception that when a player in their late 20's/early 30's joins a club they automatically add experience to the squad regardless of their playing history. The theory works under the assumption all players of that age have …
