Liverpool On Red Alert For European Dropouts

Liverpool On Red Alert For European Dropouts

With the international break upon us, it’s as good a time as any to take stock of the situations at some of the other Champions League clubs with an eye towards surprise players who might become available in the January window from clubs that are likely to be dropping out of the competition. Keeping in mind Liverpool’s preferred player profile, the potential targets are fairly easy to pick out, but there will be massive competition for many of these prospects …
The Klopp Project (Part 3): Challenging for the title

The Klopp Project (Part 3): Challenging for the title

In my previous pieces, you can also read part 1 and part 2, I discussed the challenges facing Jurgen Klopp, or indeed any Liverpool manager, in landing the league title. Namely, the issue of finances and the sensible "restrictions" FSG pose on spending money; also, the issues that Klopp's tactical approach has had in overcoming the proverbial parked bus. This series is a look at what it takes to win a title so I will look at various options available …
No Van Dijk: What Next?

No Van Dijk: What Next?

Only a few days ago I, like many Liverpool fans, was both happy and assured knowing that next season Virgil Van Dijk would be lining up alongside Joel Matip for Liverpool in the Champions League. How wrong we were. The approach was too good to believe. Liverpool had stumped up £50 million, for a centre-back? Utter madness. But pleasing madness nonetheless. A little haranguing over the contract had concerns bubbling, but that tension was soon eased when reports came in that …
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 …
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 …
Four Attacking Points for a Top Four Finish For Liverpool

Four Attacking Points for a Top Four Finish For Liverpool

It’s early days in the six year tenure of Jürgen Klopp and there’s a general state of mixed emotions within the Liverpool fanbase - a mix of quiet confidence and an itch for reaching another level of talent in the team. With the current skill-set of the Liverpool squad that Klopp has created up til now, there is great validation to flooding the midfield with dynamic, attack-minded players that can understand and execute on his vertical, counter-pressing style of play. …
Henderson Analysis Shows Why Liverpool Need Dahoud

Henderson Analysis Shows Why Liverpool Need Dahoud

There's been a lot of talk recently surrounding Jordan Henderson silencing his critics after an impressive run of games as the deepest midfielder. People cite the worldie at Stamford Bridge and his dominant performances against Leicester and Hull City as evidence that he's acclimatising to his new role. For all the unfair criticism levelled at him after the matches against Arsenal and Burnley people have now gone the opposite way with their praise for the captain. He's been much better than …
Dahoud, Pulisic, and a Bit of Patience

Dahoud, Pulisic, and a Bit of Patience

The more things change, the more they stay the same. That’s such a clichéd turn of phrase. Often, with sayings such as that, meaning gets lost. What does it actually mean? If things change, surely corresponding changes occur. Something can’t possibly change without things changing alongside it, that’s the point of change. It inspires things, it creates other things, and it destroys some things. Through all of the change that’s occurred within the last twelve months at Liverpool, the undying …
Emre Can, how does Klopp use him?

Emre Can, how does Klopp use him?

With silly season in full flow, there's much debate to be had over how Jürgen Klopp is going to strengthen his team for the upcoming season, with new signing's demanded by the Liverpool faithful. However, surely when considering a signing, you need to establish what you've already got in each position. Therefore, decision's must be made as to which role a player is going to be used in week in, week out, something that isn't all that clear to Emre …
Liverpool's Scatter Gun Approach to Transfers

Liverpool's Scatter Gun Approach to Transfers

The Summer Transfer Window isn't officially open for another month but there are already Liverpool fans writing it off as a failure. The pitiful attempt in the second half of the Europa League final knocked the wind out of a confident Liverpool fan base. Since then the failure to land Bayern Munich's Mario Gotze so publicly has seen the feel good factor around the club that Jurgen Klopp worked so hard to build up quickly ebb away. We're a bunch …
