Emre Can: Should Liverpool Let Go?

Emre Can: Should Liverpool Let Go?

Excitement... despair… euphoria. The LFC Twitter rumour-mill has roared to life since the close of the Premier League season. Lost in the up, down and up again speculation surrounding Mo Salah and Virgil Van Dijk has been a report from the Daily Star that Juventus are after one of Liverpool's handsomest. Supposed quotes from “people close to Can" appeared on Twitter saying that the player was “ready to cash in” with a move to Turin. A FICKLE HISTORY In the …
Can Klopp Bring LFC Back To The Future?

Can Klopp Bring LFC Back To The Future?

As an English literature teacher, it can be a challenge to keep creating engaging writing tasks to present my students with. I've been doing the job for two decades, you see, but I try to be original in as many aspects of my life as possible and so the natural inclination is to eschew clichéd ideas and predictable decisions. This is basically why none of the young men who've graced my classroom over those years have ever been asked to …
Van Dijk Saga Embarrassing For All Involved

Van Dijk Saga Embarrassing For All Involved

What started as a hugely optimistic week in Liverpool’s summer transfer plans has come crashing down in the most embarrassing fashion. On Monday, Liverpool were hopeful of agreeing a fee for Mohamed Salah, with the Egyptian high on the list of priorities to add some extra fire power to Jurgen’s team ahead of a new campaign. With 19 goals this season in all competitions, Salah would bring acceleration and flair to the table - two ideal assets in breaking down …
Van Dijk and the Consequences of High Wages

Van Dijk and the Consequences of High Wages

So the word on the street is that Liverpool will have to offer, and are offering, £200k a week in order to secure the signature of Southampton central-defender Virgil Van Dijk. And if it’s true, and if the club can get the deal over the line, neither of which are 100% certain just yet, then that will be a massive statement of intent from FSG. But whilst there are a vast number of reasons to be excited about this deal, …
Alexandre Lacazette: Under the Microscope

Alexandre Lacazette: Under the Microscope

Alexandre Lacazette, who appeared bound for Atletico Madrid, before a transfer ban scuppered those plans, very recently claimed that the Premier League is a:
'Great league, with interesting teams'.
Perhaps the most interesting of all teams right now is Liverpool FC, a club 0dds-on to secure the services of £50-60 million rated Virgil Van Dijk, and headed by Jürgen Klopp. However, would Lacazette suit Liverpool, and if so, what would he bring to the club? For this analysis it would …
Should Milner Be Left Back On The Bench?

Should Milner Be Left Back On The Bench?

Hey, you! Yes, you - the person refreshing their Twitter feed incessantly with a daft grin plastered all over their face. Now, I realise you're all excited by the apparently imminent arrival of Virgil Van Dijk and Mohamed Salah, but weren't you the one that was having a good old moan a couple of days ago about the club's lack of ambition? Didn't you compose a string of strongly worded Facebook posts about how Liverpool's unwillingness to spend a fortune …
Philippe Coutinho: His Biggest Season Yet

Philippe Coutinho: His Biggest Season Yet

It has been three and a half years since the slight and shy Philippe Coutinho joined Liverpool FC, back in January of the 2012/13 season. It was immediately evident that he had talent, with his dribbling and close control breathtaking, and quintessentially Brazilian. However, one thing that Liverpool fans noticed was he may struggle to adapt to the physicality of the league, and that his shooting was not one of his greatest assets. Yet, here we are in the summer …
The 'Keeper Conundrum!

The 'Keeper Conundrum!

Heading into the summer transfer window, it has been well documented that as a club, we have some areas in which we are particularly sparse in terms of playing staff - left-back and centre forward spring immediately to my mind. But one area in which we definitely aren't short is in between the sticks, but that still doesn't stop the newspapers linking us to more or less every half decent goalkeeper in Europe. It's not just the senior ranks in …
Analysis: Mohamed Salah compared to Sadio Mane

Analysis: Mohamed Salah compared to Sadio Mane

When I look back at the 2016/17 season one of the things many Liverpool fans bemoaned was the lack of a Sadio Mane back-up. When the Senegalese was missing, either due to international duty or injury, the Reds lacked pace and power in the team as well as a real goal threat. With the news breaking that Liverpool are close to signing Mohamed Salah the team at AI Under Pressure decided to look at the stats for both Mohamed Salah and …
