A Left-Back, Wide Forward and Value for Money the Priority In January

Liverpool head into the January transfer window safe in the knowledge that their start to the 2016/17 Premier League season has reached, and possibly surpassed, the expectations of the majority. Coming out of the Merseyside derby on Monday night, Liverpool find themselves 12 points better off than after the same amount of fixtures last season - an achievement made all the more impressive when considering that the fixture list, after the Anfield redevelopment, is considered by many to be more challenging than …
Why I would pay the £20m for Jonas Hector

Why I would pay the £20m for Jonas Hector

Jonas Hector is one of the latest players to be linked to Liverpool, with 1.FC Köln reportedly wanting £20m for the left-back. The sale of Brad Smith leaves Jürgen Klopp with no other specialist in the squad for that position to rival Alberto Moreno, whose injury has prompted the links with Hector to resurface.

It would be worthwhile because between the times of 10.30-11pm anything goes on Liverpool Twitter. That was your window of opportunity to just lose your mind. It was almost therapeutic to join in with everybody else letting out their frustrations. The club took the brunt of it …

Who Could Liverpool Target to Replace Moreno?

Who Could Liverpool Target to Replace Moreno?

"We are all sharks circling, and waiting, for traces of blood in the water." - Alan Clark. As fans we're all guilty of bias when it comes to our opinions on a player.
