Liverpool must finish in the top four - but will it improve transfer activity?

Liverpool's ultimate aim for the 2016-17 season must be to finish in the top four and secure a place in the Champions League. All of the top teams in the Premier League are fighting to play in Europe but will Liverpool's transfer activity really benefit from competing in the elite competition? Jurgen Klopp came under criticism in January due to Liverpool's lack of activity - and rightly so. Whether or not it was because he was unwilling to buy or …
A Liverpool Problem, Not a Klopp Problem

A Liverpool Problem, Not a Klopp Problem

A lot has been said recently with regards to Liverpool’s latest slump in form, that saw the Reds lose three home games in a row, go from the red arrows to paper planes and relinquish their chance in two very good cup competitions. Probably for the first time in his tenure, fans are (and rightly so) asking questions of manager Jurgen Klopp, and this is well within anyone’s rights to do so. That being said, I do have to disagree with …

Is Klopp's reluctance to make changes costing Liverpool wins?

Is Klopp's reluctance to make changes costing Liverpool wins?

Editors Note: This article was written before the loss to Wolves. So we are now twenty-seven days in to 2017 and the Reds have won just one of their seven games in the New Year, drawing three (admittedly a good point at Old Trafford) and losing three. Even taking away the results from the FA Cup and EFL Cup matches, that leaves us with just two points from a possible nine since the turn of the year; by contrast, Chelsea have six …
Wounded Liverpool Welcome Wolves to Anfield | FA Cup 4th Round Preview

Wounded Liverpool Welcome Wolves to Anfield | FA Cup 4th Round Preview

To say that Liverpool are wounded is an understatement. Talks of a crisis may yet be premature, but there are certainly chinks in the armour that Jurgen Klopp needs to rectify as soon as he possibly can. They welcome a Wolverhampton Wanderers side who have blown hot and cold recently. They beat Stoke in the previous round of the FA Cup, and followed that up by beating Aston Villa in the Championship. But their most recent game was a 3-1 …
Can Ojo Break Into The Liverpool First Team?

Can Ojo Break Into The Liverpool First Team?

There are two ways to go from here, as we see it at Latest News. We can either treat each fresh hell the season brings as a cause for bleak despondency or greet further setbacks with dismissive snorts and just, well, get on with it. There is no correct way of engaging with disappointment and the option of perpetual carping is as valid as any other but in an attempt at stoical acceptance, this column is going to focus on …
Lethal Lucas Strikes Again

Lethal Lucas Strikes Again

Most of the Liverpool fans I know for certain to be actual corporeal beings don't have a lot of time for Lucas Leiva as a footballer. In stark contrast, those with whom I only have virtual interactions seem to almost uniformly love the amiable Brazilian. As is often the way in the odd life through which Latest News lurches, the people who live in the computer are often more simpatico. They may not be real but this collection of novelty …

The Long Game: Tough Fixtures & Plenty to Look Forward To

The Long Game: Tough Fixtures & Plenty to Look Forward To

Dropping points at Old Trafford is always a bitter pill to swallow, especially so in the manner that Manchester Utd scored: late, and with the help of a useless linesman. Regardless, it's very much onto the next one for Klopp's Liverpool who face a series of tough fixtures over the coming weeks. In Liverpool's next eleven games, they have one cup semi-final, another FA Cup replay, and fixtures against Chelsea, Spurs, Arsenal, Manchester City and Everton. That being said, looking …
Ojo Reckons Young Reds Will Be Fine

Ojo Reckons Young Reds Will Be Fine

Jürgen Klopp has just been telling the assembled hacks that Philippe Coutinho is likely to have some minutes against Southampton and that Joel Matip is close to a return and, to be entirely honest, the world seems like a better place. I'm thinking especially of those poor damaged souls I referred to in this morning's article - the OH DEAR GOD, NOT ANOTHER GAME merchants. The return of our most potent attacking threat alongside our most effective defender will be a …
