Scouting Naby Keita - The Unrivalled Midfielder

Scouting Naby Keita - The Unrivalled Midfielder

He’s the talk of the town. Will he ask for a move? Will Liverpool pay the money? Will Leipzig bend to a certain fee? Everyone seems to have their opinion on the Guinean midfielder who lit up the Bundesliga last season, breaking out onto the world scene. So, is he worth all the fuss? In a word: yes. Style Firstly, the concept of Keita only having proved himself over one exceptional season is a fallacy. What last season’s performances at …
Could Mario Gotze play in the Liverpool midfield?

Could Mario Gotze play in the Liverpool midfield?

It was going to happen eventually. It was just inevitable so long as Jurgen Klopp was in charge but I doubt many envisaged it happening quite so soon after being diagnosed with a metabolic disorder. Mario Gotze is once again being linked with a move to Anfield just six months after rejecting a move to join Klopp’s revolution on Merseyside. The 24 year old was a target for his former manager as he looked to reunite with the player he …
Mario Götze: Should Liverpool Pass or Pounce?

Mario Götze: Should Liverpool Pass or Pounce?

Hey everybody! It's that time of year again, and once again Liverpool are "linked" with Mario Götze. The 24 year old World Cup winner returned to Borrussia Dortmund this past summer for a fee of around 20m, but yet again Mario has struggled to find his feet. This has become a common theme with the German since his initial transfer from BVB to FC Bayern in 2013, as he's yet to kick on from his breakout 12/13 season at Dortmund …
Klopp Out? Only A Fool Would Want The Liverpool Manager Sacked

Klopp Out? Only A Fool Would Want The Liverpool Manager Sacked

Remember those optimistic Autumn days of 2015, when the entire Liverpool fanbase felt as united as it had done for many years? It was glorious. The arrival of Jurgen Klopp was an incredible statement of intent by the club, and the reaction that followed his appointment was bordering on hysteria. He was the one we all wanted, unless you were trying a bit too hard to be different and whinging about his "rubbish final year at Dortmund". This was a …
Can Klopp And Liverpool Stay Cool?

Can Klopp And Liverpool Stay Cool?

You know when you've arranged with family or friends that, owing to financial circumstances, you are definitely NOT doing the present thing this Christmas/birthday/whatever? And you know the way that seems like absolutely the correct call at the time and you're definitely okay with it? And do you also know that pang of ludicrous and illogical disappointment when the day arrives and you are indeed present-free? That is very much the feeling that gnawed at Latest News on the drive to work …
How the Liverpool press Nullified Manchester City

How the Liverpool press Nullified Manchester City

The buzzword surrounding Jurgen Klopp's appointment as Liverpool manger in October 2015 was pressing. Gegenpress this, Gegenpress that, counter-press them here and counter-press them there. Basically, Klopp was supposed to turn up and blitz the Premier League with his high pressing, all action, heavy metal football. When it transpired that this wasn't going to be the case many in the media felt a little cheated. The German maverick wasn't playing ball. To them it was like receiving a toy for …
Divock Origi - Taking Chances

Divock Origi - Taking Chances

From groans of displeasure to the Kop’s thunderous chorus. “Divock Origi” they chanted, moments after the 21-year old Belgian dashed towards the waiting Liverpool collective, all holding their hands out as if to embrace the man who’d finally undone the frustration. He slid; elegant and impassioned, majestic and manic, as Anfield lit up in celebration. Minutes prior, the noise levels around Anfield were reverberating very differently. There was a discouraged mumbling; a fragility that Liverpool have seen so often in …
Liverpool and the entertainment factor

Liverpool and the entertainment factor

Saturday was a bit of a football feast for me, I watched the intriguing 1-1 draw between two of our rivals: Manchester United and Arsenal. I followed that up with our game away to Southampton and finished the day with an enthralling battle between the German Bundesliga's finest: Borussia Dortmund and Bayern Munich; where Dortmund put in a masterful display to win 1-0. It has to be said that the Bundesliga game was the best of the three that I …
Why Liverpool Need... Christian Pulisic

Why Liverpool Need... Christian Pulisic

The 14th April 2016 will go down as one of the great European nights in Liverpool’s history. It was a remarkable comeback, typical of Liverpool, from 3-1 down to win 4-3 on the night and 5-4 on aggregate against Borussia Dortmund, the most in-form team in Europe that year. Whilst most people will understandably look back to that second half at Anfield as one of the defining moments of Jurgen Klopp's Liverpool reign, the second half one week earlier at the Signal …
Memphis Depay - Liverpool's Best Failure

Memphis Depay - Liverpool's Best Failure

Roughly sixteen months ago, Liverpool social media were furious once again, as we always are during every transfer window, at the club’s failure to bring in an explosive talent with quality, and at such a tender age in Memphis Depay. Coming to Liverpool would’ve made the most perfect sense in our eyes, well, in mine at least. To me, he would be the best replacement for Raheem Sterling, who’s departure from Anfield was all but concluded. The Memphis Depay transfer saga …
