A Reminder of Klopp's Dortmund Cycle

A Reminder of Klopp's Dortmund Cycle

Liverpool are currently experiencing a problematic period in which the team are yet to win in four matches against Manchester City, Sevilla, Burnley and Leicester. Whether we beat Leicester on the weekend or not, supporters of the club are rightly concerned with the club’s current lack of positive results and are further consumed with anxiety when watching the team ‘defend’. Although these concerns are understandable, the doubts about Jurgen Klopp being the right man for the job are completely ludicrous …
Liverpool fans and the Dahoud fume

Liverpool fans and the Dahoud fume

So the emotional volcano that is the Liverpool twitter-sphere erupted again this past week when it was announced that Mahmoud Dahoud will be joining Borussia Dortmund this summer. Liverpool had been long linked to the young German midfielder of prolific talent, with the infamous 'monitoring' word used. Predictably, the responses ranged from it all being FSG's fault to Dortmund being some kind of playground bully that steals players we have been scouting. Maybe, just maybe, Dortmund had been scouting him …
Could Mario Gotze play in the Liverpool midfield?

Could Mario Gotze play in the Liverpool midfield?

It was going to happen eventually. It was just inevitable so long as Jurgen Klopp was in charge but I doubt many envisaged it happening quite so soon after being diagnosed with a metabolic disorder. Mario Gotze is once again being linked with a move to Anfield just six months after rejecting a move to join Klopp’s revolution on Merseyside. The 24 year old was a target for his former manager as he looked to reunite with the player he …
Mario Götze: Should Liverpool Pass or Pounce?

Mario Götze: Should Liverpool Pass or Pounce?

Hey everybody! It's that time of year again, and once again Liverpool are "linked" with Mario Götze. The 24 year old World Cup winner returned to Borrussia Dortmund this past summer for a fee of around 20m, but yet again Mario has struggled to find his feet. This has become a common theme with the German since his initial transfer from BVB to FC Bayern in 2013, as he's yet to kick on from his breakout 12/13 season at Dortmund …
Do Reds Fans Know What They Have In Klopp?

Do Reds Fans Know What They Have In Klopp?

Liverpool fans are the daftest and most emotionally volatile bunch of people on the planet. Now, before you start to type your opprobrium and disdain for that opinion in the comments section, save the righteous indignation for some other platform, because Latest News openly admits to fitting cozily into both categories. There is no point to football if it doesn't embrace wild oscillations of emotion and moments of sheer silliness. Whether it's a half-formed opinion bellowed passionately at the television, an …
Liverpool must finish in the top four - but will it improve transfer activity?

Liverpool must finish in the top four - but will it improve transfer activity?

Liverpool's ultimate aim for the 2016-17 season must be to finish in the top four and secure a place in the Champions League. All of the top teams in the Premier League are fighting to play in Europe but will Liverpool's transfer activity really benefit from competing in the elite competition? Jurgen Klopp came under criticism in January due to Liverpool's lack of activity - and rightly so. Whether or not it was because he was unwilling to buy or …
Will Transfer Inactivity Cost Liverpool?

Will Transfer Inactivity Cost Liverpool?

As we've all uneasily borne witness to the declining form and results of the Reds, the inclination of many has been to engage in the inevitable search for blame. People love to blame, don't they? It's an ugly trait but a common one. The aftermath of Saturday's embarrassing defeat was a veritable jamboree of blame-mongering. Klopp's faith in Lovren is ridiculous! The bloody Yanks are refusing to spend! Place was like a morgue - support your team! Henderson's had it, …
Liverpool's Late Winners

Liverpool's Late Winners

Learning to Love the Fat Lady’s Tune When Sadio Mané reacted fastest to the rebound, breaking Everton hearts on Monday night, he unleashed the most primal act in all of us. If you weren’t at Goodison, then, like me, you were up off the couch, fists clenched with the most guttural of roars leaving your throat. Relief, coupled with mild disbelief, takes over. You watch the players celebrate, dreading the linesman’s flag, then you hear Mike Dean’s whistle during the …
Liverpool and the entertainment factor

Liverpool and the entertainment factor

Saturday was a bit of a football feast for me, I watched the intriguing 1-1 draw between two of our rivals: Manchester United and Arsenal. I followed that up with our game away to Southampton and finished the day with an enthralling battle between the German Bundesliga's finest: Borussia Dortmund and Bayern Munich; where Dortmund put in a masterful display to win 1-0. It has to be said that the Bundesliga game was the best of the three that I …
Why Liverpool Need: Mahmoud Dahoud

Why Liverpool Need: Mahmoud Dahoud

In times before the great Liverpool ascendancy of season 2016/17; before Jürgen’s rampant Reds stormed into the Premier League landscape and claimed it as their stomping ground, there was a 20 year-old starlet coming through the ranks in Borussia Mönchengladbach. It was hardly a well-kept secret that Klopp, in his first summer transfer window at the club, courted the young Syrian-born German under-21 international. And he should do it again come January. To retain their status as Premier League title …
