Is Dominic Solanke's pre-season form a worry for Divock Origi?

Is Dominic Solanke's pre-season form a worry for Divock Origi?

2016/17 was a tough season for Divock Origi. There were ups, such as that brilliant solo goal against Bournemouth from a tight angle but there were also downs, with the striker averaging just 0.9 take-ons and a shot accuracy of 48%. That makes for a poor comparison to 2015/16 in which Origi enjoyed a fine campaign, netting in both legs against Borussia Dortmund in the Europa League quarter-final. He proved to be a useful tool on the counter-attack, while contributing …

Make-Or-Break Season For Divock Origi

Make-Or-Break Season For Divock Origi

Footballers go in and out of fashion all the time, and any slight lull can see them in danger of being cast aside to the scrap heap in no time. It wasn’t long ago at all that Divock Origi was almost walking on water at Liverpool, earning acclaim from every corner of Anfield and looking like a striker of gigantic promise. That was in the second-half of 2015/16, when a string of dominant performances leading the line helped the Reds …
Liverpool and the Changing Importance of the Full-Back

Liverpool and the Changing Importance of the Full-Back

The Reds 0-3 win at Hertha Berlin was a fine performance and provided a fillip in this most frustrating of LFC summers. Though pre-season score-lines are generally regarded as useless and worthy only for their aerobic benefits, it was interesting to see how the new signings coped. Dom Solanke scored a beautiful goal and we already knew what Salah can do so it was more interesting to see Andy Robertson play the second half. The young Scot settled quickly and …

Liverpool's Uncharted August

Liverpool's Uncharted August

Early in July we all  had our favorite Liverpool writer we looked to for transfer intel, but those usually clued-in were mostly silent.  Into the void stepped a new batch of ITK’s with exotic ties to unnamed “sources” from far away lands. We quietly hoped they had it right.  They didn’t. Curiously, they were all telling similar tales, that Liverpool would at least have the second of their top three targets leaning on walls and swapping stories about their Istanbul …
Joe Gomez Should Remain At Liverpool This Season

Joe Gomez Should Remain At Liverpool This Season

Joe Gomez has endured a torrid time since moving to Liverpool, suffering an untimely ACL injury just seven days into Jurgen Klopp’s tenure as manager. The 20-year-old was ruled out for the rest of the season after being forced off the pitch ten minutes into England Under-21’s game against Kazakhstan.
“Gomez came here and I met him for the first time. What a wonderful young play – tall and muscles in the right positions. From this point on it goes …
Liverpool impress at the Allianz - Liverpool 3-0 Bayern Munich

Liverpool impress at the Allianz - Liverpool 3-0 Bayern Munich

Liverpool produced an excellent performance against Bayern Munich to pick up a 3-0 victory in the semi-final of the Audi Cup. Jurgen Klopp named a strong starting XI as Roberto Firmino, Mohammed Salah and Sadio Mane all started together in attack for the first game of pre-season. Emre Can and Philippe Coutinho were also named in midfield, alongside Jordan Henderson who captained the side once again. Bayern Munich named an equally strong side, with Franck Ribery, Robert Lewandowski and James …
Why Liverpool's Current Squad Is Not Enough To Challenge On All Fronts

Why Liverpool's Current Squad Is Not Enough To Challenge On All Fronts

Over the season 2016/17, Liverpool played 46 games, which amounts to around 4,140 minutes over the season. However, notably, some players struggled with their fitness, which raises questions of how individuals, the team, and the squad will perform in a season that will include a minimum of eight Champions League games (including and providing Liverpool go through the qualifying matches), and perhaps a longer FA Cup run. The most recent edition of the AI Under Pressure podcast looked at the …
Why Liverpool Still Need Another Winger

Why Liverpool Still Need Another Winger

Liverpool have already added one natural wide player to their squad – the exceptionally fast and talented Mo Salah, who appears to be the sort of world class game-changing signing that FSG and Klopp have promised us this summer. However, despite bringing in a winger, there remains a solid argument that Liverpool remain a winger short – a feeling that will only have been emphasised with the news that both Sheyi Ojo and Ryan Kent are going out on loan. …
