Why Daniel Sturridge Is Going Nowhere This Summer

Why Daniel Sturridge Is Going Nowhere This Summer

There has been a lot written about Liverpool’s transfer window up until this point, but what is interesting is the fact that almost all of Liverpool’s major outgoings are reasonably predictable. Mamadou Sakho, Lazar Markovic, Alberto Moreno and possibly Lucas. One name that has almost fallen away from discussion in terms of departure is arguably the biggest name on the list: Daniel Sturridge. Sturridge is one of Liverpool’s most talented players: he is their strongest finisher, their best goalscorer and …
Can Sturridge & Origi be trusted to be Firmino's back ups next season?

Can Sturridge & Origi be trusted to be Firmino's back ups next season?

With reports emerging that Klopp is happy with our frontline heading into next season it's time we took a closer look at whether the options of Daniel Sturridge, Divock Origi, Domonic Solanke and to a lesser extent Danny Ings are good enough and reliable back ups to Liverpool's new number 9 Roberto Firmino. Personally I'm a big fan of Firmino leading the line for this Liverpool team, he possesses every attribute a striker playing in Klopp's system requires, he holds …

5 Players That Can Transform Liverpool This Summer

Ah, the summer transfer season. It's that time of the year when football fans dream about just who could be lining up in their clubs colours next season. Liverpool secured a top-four finish with a convincing 3-0 win against Middlesbrough on the last day of the 2016/17 Premier League season. Having brought Champions League football back to Anfield, Jürgen Klopp will face tremendous pressure to secure some top names ahead of a fresh campaign. Lots of names have already been spouted …
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 …
The Champions League Isn't Needed for LFC to Strengthen

The Champions League Isn't Needed for LFC to Strengthen

Lucky number Slevin is a good film. If you haven't already seen it then you should put aside two hours of your life and give it a watch. There will be no spoilers in this piece but the plot is built around a con named 'The Kansas City Shuffle'. It's hard to really put into words what this con revolves around but Wikipedia does it's best - In order for a confidence game to be a "Kansas City Shuffle" the …
Ousmane Dembele - Ideal for Liverpool?

Ousmane Dembele - Ideal for Liverpool?

Liverpool's past endeavours when signing players with 'potential' seems to have put many fans off going down that route again. If you mention a young player to the fans that isn't already in the academy you're likely to be met with a response along the lines of "why not buy *insert a name of an already established player* instead of paying for potential?". They seem to forget the Reds made their name turning players into stars. The signing of Philippe …
Alternatives to Alex Teixeira

Alternatives to Alex Teixeira

With the looming figure of deadline day hovering beyond the next horizon, and Sky’s ever-present coverage seemingly set to focus on whether Liverpool will be successful in their pursuit of an attacker, specifically of Shakhtar’s devastating little Brazilian, questions are abound. Will Liverpool re-enter negotiations? Will Shakhtar be convinced into selling their prize asset? Will Liverpool agree to pay an astronomical fee, and if not, will they do any alternative business on deadline day? It is posing that last question …

The Sturridge Replacement - Michy Batshuayi

It's not often you hear that a Premier League club, one that regularly qualifies for Europe, is prepared to sell arguably their best player for as little as £25 million when the player has three and a half years remaining on their current deal. Stories came out over the weekend that Liverpool are set to do that exact thing. According to reports the Reds are prepared to entertain offers of £25 million for Daniel Sturridge. Twitter was divided when this …
Alexandre Lacazette - A Season-Defining Transfer Rumour

Alexandre Lacazette - A Season-Defining Transfer Rumour

Linked with moves to Ligue 1 Champions PSG, Real Madrid, Arsenal, Chelsea, Manchester United and Liverpool, Lyon striker Alexandre Lacazette was possibly the hottest property of the 2015 summer. The chairman of Lyon, Jean-Michel Aulas, came out in May and seemed to imply if a club were to prise his star asset away from the club it would be for north of £40 million. Coming off the back of his most successful season to date it wasn't such a delusional …
Broken or Wounded? Where to Next for Liverpool?

Broken or Wounded? Where to Next for Liverpool?

As grief compounds the world of most Liverpool supporters; the melancholic sense of a worthless season hangs in the rear-view mirror; only heightened by the departure of the one dependable thing Liverpool had left in Steven Gerrard. Gerrard symbolised everything Liverpool stood for; even in the toughest of adversity, even when everything looked bleak, he was the spark. He was the one to depend on. Without him, Liverpool look a shell, a discombobulated mess incapable of putting on a show …
