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 …
Brandt or Pulisic? Which Young Gun Fits Best?

Brandt or Pulisic? Which Young Gun Fits Best?

There’s certainly been no hiding Klopp’s fancies. Reliable information is at a premium in this day and age, but two pieces of information all have gotten behind in recent times are Liverpool’s pursuits of two of the Bundesliga’s most captivating young attackers. It’s more than justified as well; Sadio Mané’s absence from Liverpool has been detrimental to the way the once mesmeric attack functions, and has brought up the lack of depth Klopp has in his attack. A young, dynamic, …
Are Liverpool Dark Horses for the Title?

Are Liverpool Dark Horses for the Title?

It's a new dawn in the Premier League. Not just in terms of more money than ever being pumped into the league effectively evening the playing field somewhat, but more importantly, never before have people been able to find a collection of the most influential managers in world football today within the same league at the same time. It's a who's who of managers as Antonio Conte and Pep Guardiola join Jurgen Klopp, Jose Mourinho, Arsene Wenger, Mauricio Pochettino, Slaven …
Just how Important to the balance of the team is Emre Can?

Just how Important to the balance of the team is Emre Can?

Before the transfer window even opened Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp implied he wanted the bulk of incoming players to be signed before the club flew out to America for their tour. So far the Reds have brought in Loris Karius, Joel Matip, Marko Grujic (although he was signed in January), Sadio Mane Ragnar Klavan and Gini Wijnaldum has joined up with the squad now too. Although some supporters view these dealings as underwhelming given the earlier links to a certain …
Liverpool FC: Eyes On The Prize?

Liverpool FC: Eyes On The Prize?

Even though Liverpool might not be able to attract star names in the ilk of Götze, Mkhitaryan and more, Liverpool should be aiming for nothing less than top prize this season. Leicester’s success last season might well have been a flash in the pan, however, the success of the likes of Spurs, Southampton and West Ham should draw attention to how the league has become competitive overall. With this competitiveness, there has been weakening of the stronghold of the usual …
Can the Attack Fire Liverpool into the Top 4?

Can the Attack Fire Liverpool into the Top 4?

The Liverpool Echo, more specifically James Pearce, recently published an article informing Liverpool fans that Jurgen Klopp no longer had an interest in Bayern Munich's Mario Gotze and he was happy with his attacking options moving forward into the new season. Given the Reds were looking to bring in Monaco's Kylian Mbappe and Rennes' Ousmane Dembele it does strike me as odd that after only one attacking signing coming in so far this Summer in Sadio Mane, and with Jordon …
The end of Liverpool?

The end of Liverpool?

Mourinho. Guardiola. Conte. Wenger. Klopp. If there was an Expendables movie for football managers, it would surely include all five of these esteemed and widely respected managers, all of whom have a history of success at the top level. Yet whilst the movement of two of the most impressive managers of recent years, in Mourinho and Guardiola, to the Premier League is a spectacle for both the neutral observer and fans of competition teams alike, it may well herald the definitive end …
Liverpool's Scatter Gun Approach to Transfers

Liverpool's Scatter Gun Approach to Transfers

The Summer Transfer Window isn't officially open for another month but there are already Liverpool fans writing it off as a failure. The pitiful attempt in the second half of the Europa League final knocked the wind out of a confident Liverpool fan base. Since then the failure to land Bayern Munich's Mario Gotze so publicly has seen the feel good factor around the club that Jurgen Klopp worked so hard to build up quickly ebb away. We're a bunch …
Sadio Mane - The Dembele Alternative?

Sadio Mane - The Dembele Alternative?

Paul Joyce sent Twitter into a bit of a meltdown with the news that Liverpool were looking at £25 million Southampton attacker Sadio Mane as an alternative to Mario Gotze. Reports surfaced earlier this week about how the German looked set to join Liverpool, even agreeing personal terms, before an amazing u turn saw him sack his long term agent and imply his future was with Bayern. Initially many people were sceptical of the link. £25 million for yet another …
