The Klopp Revolution

The Klopp Revolution

The year is 2016, the date April 14th. Liverpool welcomed hordes of Dortmund fans as they flooded the city. The Germans had finally landed on English soil. It is the second leg of the Europa League Quarter-final, with Liverpool managing the all-important away goal in a 1-1 draw at the Westfalenstadion the week previous. The fans greeted the team bus with vigour and joy not seen since the 13/14 season when the league seemed within our grasp. The Liverpool fans …
Scouting Christian Pulisic: Dortmund's Teenage Sensation

Scouting Christian Pulisic: Dortmund's Teenage Sensation

At 1-1, Dortmund’s recent failures stared them in the face. Julian Nagelsmann – the manager they’ve been pursuing as a means of ailing all their woes suffered under previous incumbents – was about to grind out a great result at the Signal Iduna Park. Hoffenheim had taken a first-half lead but the lack of attacking impetus had come back to bite them in the rear-end as Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang nailed an equaliser in the sixty-third minute. Then stepped up the American …
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 …
