Liverpool's Priority Transfers For January

Liverpool's Priority Transfers For January

Now that Liverpool have emphatically topped their Champions League group with a 7-0 demolition of Spartak the club's needs for the January window have become much more clear. We polled a few Anfield Index contributors, asking them what their two priority transfers would be for the January window to set Liverpool up to add to the trophy case at Melwood in this season and beyond. One large Dutchman was a popular pick, but who would you prioritize in the winter …
How on earth did Liverpool draw with Everton?

How on earth did Liverpool draw with Everton?

40 goals in the previous 11 games for Klopp's Liverpool and 18 years since Everton last won at Anfield: as the game entered the 75th minute, it appeared that wait would have to go on, until the FA Cup 3rd round fixture at least, as Liverpool were absolutely cruising. The reflected such a reading of the game too: 79.4pc possession, 964 touches (to Everton's 384), 23 shots to 3, 88pc pass accuracy to Everton's 50pc, and 644 complete passes, to Everton's …

The "False" Roberto Firmino - Brighton 1 Liverpool 5

There are times when supporting this team can be a chore. I doubt there is a fan base in the world that has quite so much internal bickering than ours. The whole #lfcfamily hashtag is magnificent of irony, unless, of course, its creation is to illustrate how much families fight over the smallest thing. Yesterday afternoon provided a similar case. When the team was announced many of us scanned the names, looking for centre-backs. It transpired that Emre was playing …
Liverpool’s Business With Southampton: A Success?

Liverpool’s Business With Southampton: A Success?

This weekend see a surprise rivalry take place at Anfield - one that has only really caught fire in the last three years. Liverpool and Southampton do battle, in what has become commonly known as the “We’re Sick Of You Taking Our Players Derby". Saints have, perhaps understandably, been irked by the Reds consistently snatching their star men away from them in recent times, and there seems to an added effort on their part whenever the two sides meet. You …
New Year New Faces at Anfield?

New Year New Faces at Anfield?

The November international break is usually seen as the real precursor to a sustained period of rumour and conjecture ahead of the January transfer window. For Liverpool, the issues are clear and there have been a number of suggestions made in regard to players who can come in and sort out the problems in defence. But those defensive problems may form only part of the potential business in and out of Anfield at the start of 2018. Traditionally, this is …
Jurgen Klopp's

Jurgen Klopp's "defensive" tactical tweak

Coming off the back of that defensive implosion at Wembley, something had to change. Personnel, defensive set-up, a mixture of both, just something. Throughout the week there was talk of Klopp making sweeping changes to his back line, Karius in goal, Gomez at CB and Trent back in at right-back were all credible suggestions but all fairly unlikely. Despite an enforced late change with the injured Dejan Lovren being replaced by Ragnar Klavan it looked as though the Reds would …
The Anfield Atmosphere

The Anfield Atmosphere

With Liverpool sitting in sixth place in the league and 12 points behind the leaders, Man City, the Twitter brigade are scavenging off poor displays from certain players or the team as a whole. Although our calamitous defence may be an issue, it is not as big as the issue which is unfolding around the stands caused by the men off the field. After Huddersfield were served a 3-0 defeat at Anfield on Saturday afternoon, their manager, David Wagner said …

Fantasy Premier League Insight: GW9 - City Flying

With GW8 behind us, let's reflect on what transpired and MY WORD! what a game week. All the focus was on Anfield as two Juggernauts did battle; the match itself was a let down as it finished honours even. The games to follow produced some of the more unexpected results Man City once again showed us why they are pretty much nailed on for the title, smacking seven goals past Stoke City. Even with Aguero out, City assets just keep …
