Why Lallana should still be lining up in Liverpool's midfield next season

Why Lallana should still be lining up in Liverpool's midfield next season

With the imminent signing of Mo Salah it looks increasingly certain that Philippe Coutinho will be moved back into midfield next season to add some much needed creativity from deeper areas. The Reds found it hard to break down teams who played with a low block last season, therefore, having someone like Coutinho on the ball more often in central areas, dictating the play can only have a positive impact on the team. However, due to this change many fans …
New Deal For Emre Can Is Just As Important As A New Signing

New Deal For Emre Can Is Just As Important As A New Signing

Amid all the chaos of the transfer window it’s easy to forget Emre Can’s current contract predicament. All the saga over potential deals for Virgil van Dijk and Mohamed Salah have taken the headlines but the German remains at the forefront of Liverpool fans’ minds. Playing a crucial role in seeing Liverpool over the line and into the top four this season, the lack of movement over his contract situation is becoming increasingly worrying. Joining from Bayern Leverkusen in 2014 …
Jordan Henderson Remains A Key Player - If Fit

Jordan Henderson Remains A Key Player - If Fit

Football supporters have incredibly short memories. That’s not a needless dig in the slightest, it’s just a fact. We’re all guilty of it. A few poor performances from a player, or a long-term absence from the team, and suddenly their previous excellence is consigned to history. In the space of three or four months, Jordan Henderson has gone from being lauded by the masses for his performances in a new deep-lying midfield role, to being cast aside and not valued …
Who is Sergej Milinkovic-Savic? Scouting Lazio's Powerhouse

Who is Sergej Milinkovic-Savic? Scouting Lazio's Powerhouse

Amidst rising tensions regarding Liverpool’s transfer business, and the multitudes of social media seething in contempt over their American overlords, people are desperate for rumours, for some sort semblance of positivity regarding Liverpool’s summer (one that hasn’t even properly begun yet.) So, here’s to a little bit of positivity. One of the chief rumours coming out of the successful 2016/17 season was the Reds’ pursuit of the rising star Naby Keita, who was equally successful with Bundesliga newboys RB Leipzig. …
A Case For Selling Jordan Henderson

A Case For Selling Jordan Henderson

I am a Jordan Henderson fan. I do not dislike him as a player or person in any way. My argument for selling him here is purely business, and I believe would be in the best interest of both the player and club. Jordan Henderson has been a fine player for LFC since Kenny Dalglish bought him from Sunderland in 2011 for £16 million. In Henderson’s first season, Dalglish often shunted him out wide, thus squandering his talent as a …
Profiling Liverpool's Squad Depth Ahead of Next Season

Profiling Liverpool's Squad Depth Ahead of Next Season

After Liverpool secured qualification into the Champions league for next season, attention turned to the summer transfer window and who the Reds would be signing to both improve and bolster their squad heading into next season. One of Liverpool’s main weaknesses this season has been their lack of squad depth, which has been highlighted following injuries to key players such as Coutinho, Mane and Lallana. When the Reds have everyone fit they are as good as any team in the …
Dejan Lovren: Is He Really THAT Bad?

Dejan Lovren: Is He Really THAT Bad?

Occasionally, a player comes along that it’s cool to hate. They don’t appear at all fashionable, their performances are torn to shreds left, right and centre and they seemingly have to perform to miraculous levels to receive any praise in the slightest. There’s always at least one Liverpool player who fits the bill perfectly, from Jordan Henderson in his younger days, James Milner during a dip in the second-half of 2016/17, all the way back to John Arne Riise, who …
Liverpool Supporters And The Futility of Transfer Hysteria

Liverpool Supporters And The Futility of Transfer Hysteria

The summer transfer window is yet to open, however transfer hysteria has already swept in. Liverpool fans have barely had time to rejoice in the fact that Liverpool FC will very likely be in the Champions League group stages next season, as seemingly that was not enough to satiate fans in the short-term, as now apparently is the time for transfers. Much of the hysteria regarding transfers has developed because of Liverpool's history in relation to transfers, especially in recent years. Fans are …
The Shadow of Steven Gerrard

The Shadow of Steven Gerrard

Two seasons on from Steven Gerrard's last competitive game for Liverpool, and the iconic number 8 shirt remains unoccupied. For Liverpool fans, the number 8 shirt retains an almost religious significance. Steven Gerrard was not just the captain of Liverpool: for years he was a symbol of hope. He embodied, represented, and understood the club like the great King Kenny. Littered across Gerrard's career are moments of brilliance, goals, and assists, spanning all competitions, in all manner of games - from league matches against Aston Villa, …
FSG: No More Shortcuts!

FSG: No More Shortcuts!

The Small Faces once sang about the joy of resting in the afterglow. I’ve had similar thoughts this week, safe in the knowledge that a) my weekends no longer contain 90-95 minutes of intense panic and worry and b) Liverpool have had an enormous door opened to them and been ushered into the green room of European football. Personally, I like a break from football. At my age it’s good to recalibrate and take stock before stiffening up the sinews …
