Liverpool Not Signing A Centre-Back Is Unforgivable

Liverpool Not Signing A Centre-Back Is Unforgivable

Liverpool have made plenty of glaring errors throughout history, both on and off the pitch. Allowing Tom Hicks and George Gillett to buy the club was a horrific decision, in hindsight, and appointing Roy Hodgson was ineptitude of the highest order. The list goes on. In terms of transfer business, not bringing in a top class centre-back this summer has to be one of worst mistakes for a very long time. I’m a fairly laid-back fan, but every time I …
Dispelling the Myth that Klavan is Better Than Lovren

Dispelling the Myth that Klavan is Better Than Lovren

Mention the name Dejan Lovren to most Liverpool supporters and you'll be greeted with various responses many of which will be particularly negative. "He can't defend." "He's not good enough for Liverpool." "Klavan's better than him." We all know that Joel Matip is our best centre-back by a considerable margin, the man just oozes class and is a very good footballer, however, there is only one man who should partner him for the majority of this season and that's Lovren. …
Manchester City v Liverpool Preview - Key Battles

Manchester City v Liverpool Preview - Key Battles

The transfer window is over, the international break is over. It is now time for some real football. And what a way to kick the Premier League back off, as Liverpool travel to the Etihad Stadium to face Manchester City. Pep Guardiola and Jurgen Klopp will face off for the third time in English football, with Liverpool winning 1-0 at Anfield last season before a 1-1 draw at the Etihad. For Liverpool, the team news will be interesting. It is …
Mignolet Benching An Encouraging Sign

Mignolet Benching An Encouraging Sign

Leading up to the Sunday match against Arsenal rumors started spreading about Simon Mignolet being not only benched, but completely out of the squad in favor of Danny Ward and Loris Karius. Why is Klopp doing this?  That’s so unfair to Simon!  The Twitter grievances started to flow, calling out Liverpool’s manager for seemingly reckless behavior. In his pre-match presser, Klopp confirmed the rumour, but stated, “We spoke about it yesterday. It’s just that I want him to have a …
Roberto Firmino's Masterclass Must Win Him More Admirers

Roberto Firmino's Masterclass Must Win Him More Admirers

Liverpool were sensational at times against Hoffenheim as they reached the Champions League group stage on Wednesday, playing the kind of football that any Reds team throughout history would have been proud of. The way in which Jurgen Klopp’s side blew their naive opponents away at Anfield, especially in the first-half, really was a sight to behold, and we can now look forward to more great European nights on Merseyside. This is a competition made for both Klopp and Liverpool …
Why Liverpool are proving me wrong this summer

Why Liverpool are proving me wrong this summer

As Liverpool swept Middlesbrough aside on the final day of the season, I was filled with optimism. Let the fun begin, I thought We had Klopp, Champions League football and reportedly a rather large pot of gold to splurge on some much-needed transfers. Most importantly, we'd experienced sensible - logical - progression. We'd moved from a season containing cup runs and an eighth placed finish to a season where the league mattered most, and we moved up to fourth. We …
Is Liverpool's Squad Good Enough to Contend This Season?

Is Liverpool's Squad Good Enough to Contend This Season?

‘This is our year.’ It’s been declared year after year by many Liverpool fans and we’ve been on the receiving end of a lot of stick from rival fans, due to the glaring fact we haven’t won the league since 1990, nor any trophy since 2012. However, in recent weeks I have sensed more pessimism from fans taking to social media to express their concerns about the lack of strengthening the positions we need most. With less than a week …
No van Dijk? No Replacement? Equals Failed Transfer Window

No van Dijk? No Replacement? Equals Failed Transfer Window

In the last three seasons the Reds have conceded 140 goals in the Premier league, that is an average of 46.7 goals a season. Simply not good enough. There's nothing better than seeing an attacking Liverpool side at their fluid, dynamic best causing havoc to opposition defences, but for the previous five years, possibly longer,  we've seen our defence capitulate all too often. 4 against Bournemouth, 3 against Leicester, 3 against Watford, 2 against a dire Sunderland side. These are …
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 …
