Do these loan players have a future with the Reds?

There are a number of notable players currently enjoying spells away from Anfield, but with only three months left of the season, will they be welcomed back into the squad come the summer or will they be shipped out again, temporarily or permanently? There are currently 13 senior players out on loan; ranging from former PSG captain Mamadou Sakho at Crystal Palace to 22-year-old striker Jack Dunn at Tranmere Rovers.

Liverpool FC: The Need for a Balanced Midfield

Liverpool FC: The Need for a Balanced Midfield

Jurgen Klopp's favoured formation appears to be 4-2-3-1, so with this attacking format the two central midfielders have a huge role to play in respect of providing cover for the defence. This piece looks at if currently Liverpool have the players to provide that balance and if not, what do they require, to try to provide Liverpool with a ballast against the attacking flair that is evident within the side, to propel the side up the league this upcoming season. …
The Liverpool Kids - The Future or No Future?

The Liverpool Kids - The Future or No Future?

As seasons go, this one has been something of a bonus for those Liverpool players looking to make the break through proper into fully fledged first team players. The arrival of Jurgen Klopp offered a fresh start, and the run in the FA Cup a platform on which to grasp that opportunity and show the boss why they warranted more than just a spot in the shadows going forward. But now as we enter the twilight of a season that …
Making the Case for Cameron Brannagan

Making the Case for Cameron Brannagan

Jürgen Klopp’s debut season has brought a lot of positives so far, one of those being the use of Liverpool’s young players. He started this process by bringing back many of Liverpool’s promising loaned out players, now he has been using a team in the FA Cup composed of mostly inexperienced players with of few first team players. Many of them have stood out for their good performances, but one player who has stood out above the rest is Cameron …
All Eyes on Cam Bran

All Eyes on Cam Bran

Somewhere deep inside the Camp Nou is a cabinet. Inside that cabinet, somewhere, is an envelope. No, it isn’t filled with names of players who Luis Enrique feels will let him down this season. It isn’t filled with Javier Mascherano’s tax forms. It houses the scout report of a player. A player that goes by the name of Cameron Brannagan. Before I carry on, I should point out the mentioned cabinet and envelope are merely for illustrative purposes and probably …

Liverpool FC 0 West Ham United 0: Player Ratings

The FA Cup game ended in a stalemate; a result which would not have pleased Klopp at all, as it means they have one more additional fixture to play in an already congested season. This is how the players did on a cold night at Liverpool. Simon Mignolet (5.5) - Mignolet had a relatively idle first-half with no major action happening at the Liverpool end to affect him. He, as usual, reverted to deliberating too much on the ball and …
Liverpool FC: To Buy Or Not To Buy?

Liverpool FC: To Buy Or Not To Buy?

The January transfer window is open, Liverpool have thirteen first team players currently out injured, it's time for FSG to splash the cash and show Jürgen Klopp that they mean business at Liverpool. Back him the way they backed Brendan Rodgers. After all Liverpool are still currently in contention for the prized fourth Champions League spot, still in all the domestic cups and more importantly for me (and I never thought I'd say this) still in the Europa League. I …
Liverpool's Midfield - The Heart of the Team, in Need of a Defibrillator!

Liverpool's Midfield - The Heart of the Team, in Need of a Defibrillator!

Editor's note: This article was written prior to Liverpool's win against Manchester City at Etihad on Saturday I've always believed that the competitive games are won and lost, by the battle in midfield. It's the area of a team so influential to the style, tempo, control and competitiveness of a team. A good midfield will win you games no doubt, but a truly great one wins titles and tournaments. Attacking players will always command the highest transfer fees in world …
