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 Seven Year Itch | FSG - A Review

The Seven Year Itch | FSG - A Review

In October of 2010, Fenway Sports Group purchased Liverpool FC for £300 million. In his first statement as owner, John Henry claimed,
'We're here to win and we'll do whatever is necessary.'
Fast-forward almost seven years later, and fans are still divided as to whether FSG have been good owners for the club, and whether the club has progressed, regressed, or simply remained stationary for this period. Under FSG, Liverpool FC have had four managers: Roy Hodgson (sacked January 2011), Kenny …
Where is the praise for Liverpool's transfer committee?

Where is the praise for Liverpool's transfer committee?

In English football there has always been an aversion to ‘the continental model’ of football management. The likes of Sir Alex Ferguson, Arsene Wenger and Bill Shankley were such enduring individuals at their clubs that the successes of their teams have been attributed to the all powerful men that ruled them. The great managers of English football dominated every facet of their club, and so, unsurprisingly, the attitude in this country has been sympathetic towards managers who want utter control of their clubs, …
Liverpool Transfers: It's Not About The Money, Money, Money

Liverpool Transfers: It's Not About The Money, Money, Money

Mohammed Salah, Alexis Sanchez, Willian, Clint Dempsey, Diego Costa, Memphis Depay, Henrikh Mkhitaryan, Alex Teixeira, Ousmane Dembele. Different nationalities, positions on the field, huge talent / big names, and plenty of contrasts to one another. But among all these names, there is one common denominator. Liverpool’s failed transfers. Salah, Diego Costa, and Willian eventually went to Chelsea, Sanchez chose Arsenal, Depay went to Manchester United, Mkhitaryan and Dembele to Borussia Dortmund, Alex Teixeira to China for the peking duck, and …

Liverpool still haven't mastered the PR game

"I'm looking forward to the new season with Bayern."
- Mario Gotze, 23/05/2016 Liverpool aren't allowed nice things. Their potentially quixotic end to the season now a distant memory as Mario Gotze seemed to end all the rumours by committing his future, short-term at least, to current club Bayern. This news comes less than a week after the Reds capitulated in the second half of the Europa League final to not just miss out on the Champions League …

Mahmoud Dahoud, Blaggers and Ignorance

There's a perpetual cycle of bickering when it comes to Liverpool fans on social media that doesn't seem to be nearing an end anytime soon. Some may call it Groundhog Day, others may call it deja-vu. One thing that's for sure is Liverpool fans like to reignite the same arguments almost as though there's a rota they have to stick to. Off the back of the Daniel Sturridge debate. I'm sure you're all familiar with it by now - some …
Ousmane Dembele - Ideal for Liverpool?

Ousmane Dembele - Ideal for Liverpool?

Liverpool's past endeavours when signing players with 'potential' seems to have put many fans off going down that route again. If you mention a young player to the fans that isn't already in the academy you're likely to be met with a response along the lines of "why not buy *insert a name of an already established player* instead of paying for potential?". They seem to forget the Reds made their name turning players into stars. The signing of Philippe …
Re-Evaluating Season Goals for Klopp's Rampant Reds

Re-Evaluating Season Goals for Klopp's Rampant Reds

Six games into Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool reign and it feels like I am supporting a different Liverpool. The same group of players have been transformed from underperforming disappointments to a versatile squad with competition in key positions. Klopp’s reds now have three victories on the bounce, including a very sweet and very comprehensive win at Stamford Bridge over Chelsea. For the first time in about fifteen months, following Liverpool has actually become fun again. With Klopp re-energising everyone connected to …
