Is Mohamed Salah's start to the season being underplayed?

Is Mohamed Salah's start to the season being underplayed?

When Liverpool signed Mohamed Salah for £36.9m on 22nd June 2017 it wasn’t to the kind of fanfare one would expect for a club record signing. Sure, many Liverpool supporters were made up with the transfer, but it didn’t feel huge in its magnitude. It didn’t reverberate around the league. Certainly when you consider what was to follow. By the end of the transfer window, Mo Salah would prove to be only the 10th most expensive signing of the summer. …

Fantasy Premier League Insight: GW9 - City Flying

With GW8 behind us, let's reflect on what transpired and MY WORD! what a game week.

Roberto Firmino Threatening To Silence His Admirers

Roberto Firmino Threatening To Silence His Admirers

Roberto Firmino is a wonderful footballer - let’s start off by acknowledging that. After a slow start to life at Liverpool, due mainly to Brendan Rodgers expecting him to shine as a right winger, the Brazilian has become a key figure. The 4-1 win away to Man City in November 2015 was the first time we saw exactly what he can offer, both on and off the ball, and he has thrilled us ever since. To many, he is the …

I honestly can't think of another season where we've had this many strikers performing well at the same time; it definitely has the feel of …

Daniel Sturridge: Liverpool’s Potentially World-Class Wildcard

Daniel Sturridge: Liverpool’s Potentially World-Class Wildcard

There were a couple of moments at the end of last season that seemed to save Daniel Sturridge’s Liverpool career. By the time the crucial trip to West Ham rolled around on May 14th, the general consensus was that Sturridge’s continued fitness woes had left him surplus to requirements, with a move elsewhere likely this summer. Then the vital 4-0 win at the London Stadium happened. Moment number one for Sturridge was, unsurprisingly, his expertly-taken goal that gave Liverpool a …

Recent Results Show why Reds Need a Striker

Liverpool need their own Sergio Agüero. There’s no need for foreplay, or context, or even to reflect on the glory days of yester-year, when Liverpool were famed for their mercurial number nines. All one needs to see is the reaction from Manchester City following James Milner’s penalty. They came at Liverpool, they scored a goal, and they left gaps in their team for Klopp’s counterattack to exploit. Make no mistake; Liverpool punished City for leaving those gaps. They did everything …
