Immense Salah-Firmino Partnership Continues To Grow At Liverpool

Great Liverpool attacking pairings throughout history roll off the tongue. Ian St John and Roger Hunt excelled in the 1960s, John Toshack and Kevin Keegan were the archetypal ‘Little N Large’ combo the following decade and Kenny Dalglish and Ian Rush were perhaps the Reds’ greatest duo-in-tandem. Jumping into the Premier League era, Robbie Fowler and Stan Collymore wreaked havoc for a short time, before Steven Gerrard and Fernando Torres came so close to inspiring Liverpool to glory in 2008/09. …
Klopp’s Miracle: Turning Water into Wine, & Making Money at the Same Time

Klopp’s Miracle: Turning Water into Wine, & Making Money at the Same Time

Jurgen Klopp has improved Liverpool all over the pitch, quite literally, since arriving in October 2015. But unlike some of his managerial rivals, he’s done so without spending money in the transfer market. ‘Net Spend’ is a much scoffed at phrase in modern football, but to transform Liverpool into the gegenpressing, offensive monster we often see now, from the weary, possession-obsessed ‘animal’ it was at the end of Brendan Rodgers’ reign – while making £34m – is nothing short of …

Have we underestimated Liverpool's squad depth?

Over the last month or so we have seen Jurgen Klopp increasingly trust his squad which has seen him rotate a number of his first choice eleven in and out of the side. With the added demands of European football, it was clear Klopp was going to have to utilise his squad players a lot more this season but it should also highlight to us all how the German is building a team which is capable of challenging on all …

One Transfer To Save Liverpool's Summer

One Transfer To Save Liverpool's Summer

Keita, Van Dijk, Oxlade Chamberlain... rinse and repeat.  The 2017 summer transfer window passed the annoying stage several weeks ago.  Since the signing of Mo Salah, the remaining names on the list haven’t changed, neither have Liverpool made any apparent progress in getting these deals over the line.  All three would be big additions to a squad with more holes than the old Hitachi kit you have hanging in your closet, but one major problem in concluding these deals is that there is …
