Matip, Wijnaldum & Mane Proving Klopp Should Be Trusted This Summer

Matip, Wijnaldum & Mane Proving Klopp Should Be Trusted This Summer

Many past Liverpool managers have experienced utterly disastrous summer transfer windows. Gerard Houllier, Rafa Benitez and Brendan Rodgers all spectacularly failed to build on near title-winning seasons in 2001/02, 2008/09 and 2013/14, respectively, with dross such as El Hadji Diouf, Salif Diao, Philipp Degen and Alberto Aquilani bought in. Even Kenny Dalglish, for all his understandable God-like status at Anfield, decided to sign Jose Enrique, Charlie Adam and Andy Carroll. When the end of Jurgen Klopp’s first season as Liverpool …
Damien Comolli and his Liverpool Flops

Damien Comolli and his Liverpool Flops

Damien Comolli decided to piggyback on the recent success of Jordan Henderson to once again get his name in the headlines. The ex-Director of Football at Liverpool has claimed the club's owners fired him after telling him that £16million man Jordan Henderson was a waste of money.  In quotes taken from a report in the Daily Mirror the Frenchman went on to say:
“The day I got sacked they [Liverpool’s owners] told me I had made a big mistake …
Premier League Proven isn't always a negative

Premier League Proven isn't always a negative

The Transfer Window has been officially open for nearly a month now and Liverpool's two biggest signings have been players from within the Premier League. Both Sadio Mane and Gini Wijnaldum arrived at Anfield for a combined £55 Million. Most Reds fans must have a strong feeling of deja-vu about such deals. Since Fenway Sports Group bought the club Liverpool have spent over £200 Million on Premier League proven players with varied success. Despite the questionable success of this tactic …
Liverpool's Progress Under Jurgen Klopp

Liverpool's Progress Under Jurgen Klopp

It was a time of conflict, of separation and fissures growing ever fractured by the day. If ever there were an embodiment of how a sinking ship can simply initiate a cold depression, it was Liverpool under Brendan Rodgers. Steven Gerrard was a club legend. Yet even his influence, his special goals, the undying embers that burned in his eyes, were beginning to fade along with any hope of Liverpool recapturing that wonder of 2013/14. Manchester City – by extension …
Another Summer of Change ahead for Liverpool

Another Summer of Change ahead for Liverpool

Everybody is for sale, kind of. There are bounties on the heads of the majority of Liverpool players as we head into open season also known as the Summer transfer window. Every single player has a price. Chairmen may talk a big game but at the end of the day they're just like every other salesman in life - they're trying to talk up the price. The transfer window is just one gigantic car-boot sale but instead of the customary …
The Case for Alberto Moreno

The Case for Alberto Moreno

It wasn’t too long ago that Alberto Moreno was plying his trade in his native homeland, winning battles on Sevilla’s left flank as they stormed their way to a Europa League championship. Highly regarded during season 2013/14, Brendan Rodgers’ most prominent, and important season at the helm of a Luis Suarez-less Liverpool FC would see Moreno arrive for approximately £16m from his native club in Sevilla, to the rumblings of a committee signing. Indeed, the promising young Spaniard held all …
Liverpool's Five Top of the Flops of the Last Five Years

Liverpool's Five Top of the Flops of the Last Five Years

Anfield Index is five years old! It's that strange age when the adorable toddler you once knew begins to get a little less cute and little more annoying. The 8am tantrums begin when getting ready for school. Incessant questions on absolutely everything in the entire universe. Questions of which you quite clearly have all the answers to. BUT Anfield Index isn't a child, it's an institution; a medium for Liverpool fans the world over to discuss, share, provide, debate, vent …
Klopp's Kids

Klopp's Kids

Every time Liverpool step on to the pitch I always try and learn something. For instance some of the things I learned under Brendan Rodgers were, I learned that he didn't have a clue about managing a team who didn't have a twenty goal a season striker playing for him or what a defence was. I learned that you need more than character to win matches and that he had no clue when it came to buying, selling and loaning …
Merry Klopp-mas and a Quiet New Year?

Merry Klopp-mas and a Quiet New Year?

The countdown is on and the big day is nearly upon us. Excited boys and girls are writing their lists, checking them twice (at least!) and hoping that when the time comes, they’ll be screeching with excitement over the presents that they have been dreaming about for months, delivered by the jolly red man on his trusted vehicle of dreams. I am, of course, talking about the opening of the January transfer window and Ian Ayres moped exploits en route to closing …
Give 'Shanks' to the Board: Klopp, the Fans, and Our Red Revolution

Give 'Shanks' to the Board: Klopp, the Fans, and Our Red Revolution

In America, there are essentially three types of holidays: 1) Those where we eat until we hate ourselves, 2) Those where we give overpriced gifts to each other, to later return them, and 3) Those where we don’t know what else to do, so we blow things up. At present, we are closest to a holiday of the #1 variety, Thanksgiving; a day where we eat to celebrate the arrival and survival of our strangely dressed forefathers on these golden …
