Why Liverpool's Young Talent Are Unlikely To Succeed

A lot of discussion in pre-season has been made of Liverpool’s young talents, and how much they are likely to feature for the club next season. But the sad truth is that the majority of them simply have no future at Liverpool Football Club, and it’s okay to admit that. Looking at the current clutch of young players, and focusing specifically on those who have been in and around the first team, or have been touted as such, there is …
Are Klopp's January Decisions Costing the Reds Millions in July?

Are Klopp's January Decisions Costing the Reds Millions in July?

If you want to make a Liverpool supporter sick to their stomach, ask them to think back to January.  It was not a fun month.  What was looking like a juggernaut of a team lost Mané to AFCON, Coutinho and Matip to injury and suddenly we were struggling against lower league competition. Klopp did what he could to right the ship and eventually found a formula that wasn’t as entertaining, but brought results and a finish in the Champions League …

Winning Substitutions Emphasises Need to Invest in the Summer

Winning Substitutions Emphasises Need to Invest in the Summer

Liverpool were hit with a number of crucial injuries ahead of their clash against Stoke City on Saturday afternoon and it almost proved costly. Jurgen Klopp needed to call upon his Brazilian duo Phillipe Coutinho and Roberto Firmino to grab a tight victory at the Britannia Stadium, as the absence of Jordan Henderson, Sadio Mane and Adam Lallana in the squad meant there were rare Premier League starts for Ben Woodburn and Trent Alexander-Arnold. Coutinho and Firmino weren't deemed fit …

A Liverpool Schooling

No writing on Liverpool Football Club today should begin without a tribute to the club legend that was Ronnie Moran, who passed away peacefully this morning.

In Times of Despair, The Academy Brings Hope

In Times of Despair, The Academy Brings Hope

After another damaging defeat at Hull City yesterday, Jurgen Klopp's Reds are now five league games without a win (3D, 2L) and a turn in form is now vital if the First Team want to be playing Champions League football next season. However, all is not lost for Liverpool, as Neil Critchley's U18's show. The Liverpool youngsters are currently third in the North Division of the U18 Premier League and look to be heading into Group 1 to fight for …
Wingers Liverpool could target to ease Klopp's concerns

Wingers Liverpool could target to ease Klopp's concerns

"We have enough strikers – five with Roberto [Firmino] – but not too many wingers, just a few young ones with great potential." Reds boss Jurgen Klopp gave fans the biggest Easter egg yet with regards to his summer transfer plans when he implied that Liverpool are a bit light in the winger department. It's not exactly a shock, Liverpool's only first team winger is Jordon Ibe, there's an obvious need for width in the squad but it's not a …

Internacional emerged victorious, defeating Argentine side Estudiantes in the final, but …

Six Up and Coming Stars to Emerge from the Melwood Youth Academy

Liverpool FC boasts one of the strongest youth systems in world football. In contrast to recent polls conducted by Bleacher Report, Givemesport.com, amongst others, who seem to have disregarded the Merseyside club entirely and placed them towards the bottom end of the pile, players such as Steven Gerrard, Jamie Carragher, and Raheem Sterling demonstrate just how wrong these poll-makers are, and that our base at Melwood is as strong as it has ever been. The most recent of emerging professionals …

Liverpool 2 Tottenham 1 | U21s Match Report and Tactics

On a mild Hallows Eve at Langtree Park, St Helens, Liverpool U21s defeated Tottenham Hotspur by two goals to one.

Jordans Rossiter and Williams were back in the team after making the senior side’s League Cup squad on Tuesday, and the …
