Dominic Solanke: A versatile squad player from the off?

Dominic Solanke: A versatile squad player from the off?

Mohamed Salah has already signed, and Virgil van Dijk and Naby Keita continue to dominate Liverpool-related transfer news, so Dominic Solanke's arrival on Merseyside has almost gone under the radar. The 19-year-old has now officially joined from Chelsea, after a superb summer that saw him win the U20 World Cup with England and be named the tournament's best player. A player full of potential who was never going to be given a chance at Stamford Bridge, Solanke could be a …
Dominic Solanke: A Low Risk Buy With High Potential

Dominic Solanke: A Low Risk Buy With High Potential

Having failed to get the chances many expected him to at Chelsea, Dominic Solanke was always destined for a move to pastures new this summer. A host of clubs were interested in bringing the youngster in but it was Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool that ultimately won the race. With one eye on the future, Solanke joins an array of youth quality already at the club who will be looking to compete for a first-team spot ahead of the 2017/18 season. A …

5 Players In Need Of A Loan Move This Summer

Liverpool are set for a crucial summer transfer window with quality additions needed to get the squad ready to fight on all fronts ahead of a new campaign. Mohamed Salah has started the trend, making the move from AS Roma in a £36.9million deal. The ex-Chelsea man’s high-profile move sees him as the club’s new record transfer, replacing Andy Carroll, much to the delight of the fan base. Plenty more players are expected to pose for the infamous Melwood lean, …
Do Liverpool need a new striker?

Do Liverpool need a new striker?

The 2016/17 season was, broadly speaking, a successful one. Attaining Champions League football was the bare minimum for a 'successful season', but under Klopp's leadership, the team did so. In the process, Liverpool scored 78 goals in the league, at an average of just over two per game. Coutinho and Mané both scored 13 in the league, whilst Roberto Firmino contributed with 11. Whilst it is a positive that the goalscoring burden is shared across the forward line, what Liverpool …
How The Perfect Liverpool Squad Should Look Next Season

How The Perfect Liverpool Squad Should Look Next Season

Another season has been and gone, but unlike so many at Liverpool since they decided to stop winning everything, 2016/17 has left us with a feeling of great warmth. The Reds’ title challenge may have fizzled out after a very promising first four months, but sealing Champions League qualification has to be seen as a huge positive. It is very easy for Liverpool fans to have a sense of entitlement, given the club’s incredible history both domestically and in Europe, …
Positivity Around Anfield: How Do We Cope?

Positivity Around Anfield: How Do We Cope?

What with the revelations about plans for further expansion of Anfield, the decision to dedicate an entire stand to Kenny Dalglish, the proposed state-of-the-art training facility in Kirkby and a rumoured bumper transfer spend in the summer, one could be forgiven for thinking that things were looking reasonably positive for Liverpool Football Club. This is a truly novel concept for a lot of supporters, but when you add to the mix the heady combination of a clutch of rivals dropping …
Is Liverpool's La Manga Break A Good Thing?

Is Liverpool's La Manga Break A Good Thing?

You know it's a slow news day when the official website is running an article which is essentially John Aldridge saying that holidays are great and trips away help with team bonding and morale. The ex-Red goal-poacher reckons the training camp in La Manga is "a really good idea" and the time can be used for working "some finer things that maybe we've fallen short of, especially in the last month or two, some fresh ideas," or training, as it's …
Liverpool's win over Sunderland - different types of winning

Liverpool's win over Sunderland - different types of winning

Generally speaking, wins come in different categories. So far this season, we’ve had the rollercoaster (Arsenal, Crystal Palace), the batterings (Leicester, Hull and Watford), the bossed win (Chelsea) and the routine (Derby and Burton Albion). Saturday saw us find a new stream. The eked out win. The hard yards. Of course, it wasn’t supposed to be that way. Before the game, there was talk of a double digit victory and of David Moyes walking onto the pitch after half an …
The Terrible Tale of Danny Ings (So Far)

The Terrible Tale of Danny Ings (So Far)

A real shame this one. The early years of Danny Ings’ career have seen him take a refreshing route to the top that seems to be all the rage these days. Starting out with Bournemouth in League Two, he, like his former South Coast club, has climbed the football ladder and was sitting pretty at the very top step upon joining Liverpool in June 2015. Fans at both Bournemouth and his next club, Burnley, admired the energetic determination of a …
Time for Studge to budge from Liverpool

Time for Studge to budge from Liverpool

Before I get started on this article, let’s get a few things out of the way. I’m a big fan of Daniel Sturridge; I think he’s one of the league’s best finishers and can be a world beater on his day. Secondly, this is my opinion. As Henry Jackson touched upon in his piece for Anfield Index, there is no need for Liverpool fans to slaughter each other for differences in opinion. I don’t like Alberto Moreno, you may like …
