Will This Be Liverpool's Best Attack Since The 1980s?

Will This Be Liverpool's Best Attack Since The 1980s?

The opening 45 minutes of Saturday’s Premier League Asia Trophy final win over Leicester City were unbelievable. There was a frightening pace to the game, especially compared to the usual slow speed of a pre-season friendly, and Liverpool looked irrepressible for the most part. Jurgen Klopp’s attack-minded lineup saw the quintet of Adam Lallana, Philippe Coutinho, Mohamed Salah, Roberto Firmino and Divock Origi all start, and some of the football was exceptional. The creativity, confidence and interchanging that the attacking …
Why Daniel Sturridge Is Going Nowhere This Summer

Why Daniel Sturridge Is Going Nowhere This Summer

There has been a lot written about Liverpool’s transfer window up until this point, but what is interesting is the fact that almost all of Liverpool’s major outgoings are reasonably predictable. Mamadou Sakho, Lazar Markovic, Alberto Moreno and possibly Lucas. One name that has almost fallen away from discussion in terms of departure is arguably the biggest name on the list: Daniel Sturridge. Sturridge is one of Liverpool’s most talented players: he is their strongest finisher, their best goalscorer and …
Liverpool Have The Necessary Firepower For Next Season

Liverpool Have The Necessary Firepower For Next Season

With Liverpool set to hold firm and rebuff any approaches for Daniel Sturridge this summer, it’s highly unlikely Jurgen Klopp will add to his striking options. That shouldn’t come as much of a surprise to fans despite their desires to see Aubameyang or Lacazette lining up in red for the upcoming Premier League season. There are much more pressing needs that need to be addressed; left-back, centre-back and central midfield have already been outlined as the priority, leaving certain financial …
Can Sturridge & Origi be trusted to be Firmino's back ups next season?

Can Sturridge & Origi be trusted to be Firmino's back ups next season?

With reports emerging that Klopp is happy with our frontline heading into next season it's time we took a closer look at whether the options of Daniel Sturridge, Divock Origi, Domonic Solanke and to a lesser extent Danny Ings are good enough and reliable back ups to Liverpool's new number 9 Roberto Firmino. Personally I'm a big fan of Firmino leading the line for this Liverpool team, he possesses every attribute a striker playing in Klopp's system requires, he holds …
It's Time To See A More Ruthless Roberto Firmino

It's Time To See A More Ruthless Roberto Firmino

There was a moment last season that made you realise Roberto Firmino was a notch down from the very best finishers in the business. Sent clean-through in a tight contest at Southampton in November, the Brazilian’s attempt at an outside-of-the-foot finish went horribly wrong. He may have only missed the target narrowly, but it was a chance that had to be taken, especially when it comes to title aspirations. Liverpool drew 0-0, and two priceless points were dropped. Similar scenarios …
What are Liverpool's transfer requirements this summer?

What are Liverpool's transfer requirements this summer?

There is a multitude of content available in relation to transfer rumours and deals this summer, whether they be prospective, completed or just idly speculated upon; but for the purposes of this article, I want you to forget potential target names and forget price tags. I know that is a difficult thing to do with your favourite team, especially given that football is such an emotive sport and the passion and personal investment involved in being a supporter. We all …
How Should Klopp Use His Forwards?

How Should Klopp Use His Forwards?

With Mohamed Salah signed, attention naturally shifts to prospective signings in midfield and defence. However, with the Under-20 World Cup winner, Dominic Solanke, added to the ranks, Liverpool now have a large group of offensive players readying themselves for the coming season. How then should Klopp use and manage this group of very different, and talented players; will a formation switch get the best out of them, and should Klopp look to trim down this attacking group? In the most recent …
Silence at Anfield

Silence at Anfield

It's all gone eerily quiet around Anfield. Not long ago the mood was euphoric; Liverpool had secured Champions League football, and were heading the race to sign Van Dijk. Rather uncharacteristically for Klopp's Liverpool, the news regarding Van Dijk was out in the open, before the player had put pen to paper, or even before Liverpool had submitted a formal offer. After that almighty omnishambles, which played out for the entire football world to see, Liverpool have shut-up shop. In terms of transfer …
Why a Deal for Oxlade-Chamberlain Doesn't Add Up

Why a Deal for Oxlade-Chamberlain Doesn't Add Up

The link between Liverpool and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain is one that has stuck around, despite Jürgen Klopp himself denying it, and it’s one that has created a lot of debate amongst Liverpool supporters. Unlike Salah, Van Dijk or Lacazette, who all were almost universally hyped up as soon as the link was made, reactions to the Ox have varied from delight, to apprehension, to disbelief, and even confusion. Certainly it’s a signing that is not straightforwardly good or bad and reaction …
Jordan Henderson Remains A Key Player - If Fit

Jordan Henderson Remains A Key Player - If Fit

Football supporters have incredibly short memories. That’s not a needless dig in the slightest, it’s just a fact. We’re all guilty of it. A few poor performances from a player, or a long-term absence from the team, and suddenly their previous excellence is consigned to history. In the space of three or four months, Jordan Henderson has gone from being lauded by the masses for his performances in a new deep-lying midfield role, to being cast aside and not valued …
