2018-19 Premier League fixture reaction. The season we win it?

With the recent disappointment of the proposed Nabil Fekir signing falling through, Liverpool fans have been in need of a distraction to take their minds off the circus that the transfer window rumour mill. Not only is the World Cup due to begin today (hooray football is back!), but the 2018-19 Premier League fixture list has also been released. As a fan base, we have the tendency to dwell on frustrations of the past, so the 2018-19 fixture list is …
The Case for Xherdan Shaqiri

The Case for Xherdan Shaqiri

Following an impressive start to their summer with the signing of Fabinho and the impending arrival of Naby Keita, Liverpool have looked to bolster what was their most glaring weakness of the season, shining brightly in the eyes of every fan who watched their side go down to Real Madrid in Kiev. A lack of depth. Xherdan Shaqiri, having been relegated with Stoke this season, has emerged as the cut-price option to bolster the Reds’ attacking unit. Should they bring …
Hakim Ziyech Would be the Perfect Response to the Fekir Transfer Saga

Hakim Ziyech Would be the Perfect Response to the Fekir Transfer Saga

If Liverpool’s pursuit of Fabinho was an old-school signing, bereft of a long drawn out process with a strangely anticlimactic moment at the end, Fekir was a good old-fashioned transfer saga. From rumour to confirmation in under two hours, Michael Edwards wrapped up a deal for the defensive midfielder without any complications. The pursuit of Fekir however, was anything but. Liverpool appeared to have a deal for £49million, rising to approximately £53m wrapped up, with the Lyon attacker pictured doing …
Liverpool FC - Getting Smarter

Liverpool FC - Getting Smarter

Liverpool football club is not at the top of the transfer food chain. It's an unpleasant fact but we need to accept it. There are clubs that are richer, stronger and can offer guarantees that LFC just can't. So it's natural that some players will use the famous red jersey as a stepping stone to get to supposedly better clubs. This has been happening for years. Even Steven Gerrard considered it at on point. Just in the past 10 years, …
Alternative Fekirs: Where should Liverpool turn to next?

Alternative Fekirs: Where should Liverpool turn to next?

It was definitely going to be Thursday, then absolutely Friday, then without question Saturday… but at 8pm Saturday night, the Nabil Fekir saga came to an abrupt halt. Depending on which party you believe, Liverpool had reservations once they had the opportunity to review the details of Fekir’s knee reconstructions from two years prior or Liverpool were simply using the knee as an excuse to try and renegotiate a lower fee at the last minute. Regardless of who you believe, …

LFC 2017/2018 Player Ratings - Part 2

After rating the defence, now it's time for midfield and attack. Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain - Average Post-match Rating 6.63, Writers' Season Rating 7.5 The Ox had a slow start to his Liverpool career, appearing mainly as a substitute in the begging of the season. He grew to be our best midfielder as the season progressed before being sidelined by an injury sustained against Roma. His banger against Man City will be on the highlight reel for years. The injury also casts …
Trust Michael Edwards - He's Smarter Than Us

Trust Michael Edwards - He's Smarter Than Us

It’s been a very strange and very fraught weekend for Liverpool fans. The timeline is sketchy, details are even sketchier but on Thursday night, it was announced that Liverpool had wrapped up a deal with Nabil Fekir. On Friday morning, Lyon denounced that, and rumours flooded that Fekir had failed his medical. Those rumours were largely debunked, and speculation ran rampant but the announcement of Fekir never came, until finally on Saturday night, Lyon announced that the deal was dead. …
Why Alberto Moreno Shouldn’t be Liverpool’s Second Choice Left-Back

Why Alberto Moreno Shouldn’t be Liverpool’s Second Choice Left-Back

Despite a strong start to the season last time out, Alberto Moreno finds himself as Liverpool’s second choice left-back - largely through no fault of his own. Our flying Scotsman, Andy Robertson, has been everything we’ve dreamt our left-back would be for the past six years. He’s solid defensively, positionally sound and poses a real threat going forward. His link-up play with the likes of Sadio Mane, James Milner and Roberto Firmino is brilliant. Although Robertson has been superb since …

Liverpool FC 17/18: Player Ratings by AI Writers - Part 1

The season is over. It ended just two weeks ago but seems like a lot more. LFC isn't giving us any time to look back: the Champions League final, Fabinho, concussions, Fekir, sir Kenny... Before everything seems even more distant the Anfield index writers collaborated on giving each player's season a rating. The average post-match rating is the average of all AI match ratings the player received during the season. Loris Karius - average post-match rating 6.33, writers season rating …
Liverpool's Encouraging Transfer Market Motions

Liverpool's Encouraging Transfer Market Motions

The summer transfer window remains in its infancy but already there is cause for excitement as Liverpool look to wrap up their summer business in alarmingly swift fashion. Jürgen Klopp wants his squad complete by the time it convenes for pre-season training at the beginning of July and if the club's present efforts to address their outstanding weaknesses prove successful, that squad might just be closed to the finished article. No window is insignificant by any means but this one …
