Liverpool's Lost Talent XI : 2012-2016

Liverpool's Lost Talent XI : 2012-2016

Much has been said about Brendan Rodgers' time at Anfield. He was often lauded for his development of talent, both by the press and by himself. This week's news that Tiago Ilori is likely to move on to Reading   had me thinking, how much talent did the Northern Irishman waste or ignore during his tenure? Yes, Raheem Sterling and Luis Suarez become household names, with the latter almost single handedly winning Liverpool the league. But looking back at the …

Klopp on Karius, Sturridge and Coutinho

Klopp on Karius, Sturridge and Coutinho

Last night I watched Dinosaur 13, the heart wrenching tale of the world's most impressive Tyrannosaurus Rex discovery. Sue, that's what they called her, was subsequently impounded by the FBI for dubious reasons and remained in storage for years, much to the chagrin of the hapless paleontologists who'd quite literally unearthed her. Now it may be that my brain is even more damaged than I had believed, but this struck me as the perfect metaphor for how many of us …
Expect More Coaching Than Chequebook from Liverpool in January

Expect More Coaching Than Chequebook from Liverpool in January

January has arrived, which means another transfer window and Liverpool being the subject of multiple links that stretch the imagination. It is click-bait season for certain sections of the media and it serves to feed the frenzy of some fans, as they piece together a Liverpool XI based on players that the tabloids picked out of a hat. It's also the time when many fans hope that their dream of seeing players such as Dejan Lovren, James Milner, Jordan Henderson, Adam Lallana …

Twitter is abuzz as the rumour mill goes into overdrive, irritating clickbait articles spread like a common cold and everyone throws in their two pennies worth as to who their club should or shouldn’t be signing.

Why Liverpool looking at Yunus Malli makes sense

Why Liverpool looking at Yunus Malli makes sense

Ever since Jurgen Klopp was appointed as manager, Liverpool have been tentatively linked to about 90% of the players plying their trade in the Bundesliga. No doubt he arrived at Anfield with a list of players he wanted the recruitment team to cast an eye over. So far the Reds have signed Joel Matip, Loris Karius and Ragnar Klavan from teams in Germany. If reports are to be believed that number will be rising in January with the likes of Niklas Sule, Jonathan …
Tactical Analysis - Liverpool's Overloads too Much for Middlesbrough to Handle

Tactical Analysis - Liverpool's Overloads too Much for Middlesbrough to Handle

Liverpool fans represent both the best and worst of the club. In terms of backing and loving their club there is no better in World football, in terms of overreacting to a loss or setback there can be no worse. Losing a commanding lead at Bournemouth and coming away with a 4-3 loss was of course massively disappointing for all at the club and to then follow that up with a 2-2 draw at home to a West Ham side …
Loris Karius: Doomed to fail, or just a rough start?

Loris Karius: Doomed to fail, or just a rough start?

It's not talked about enough, but changing football clubs is hard. Moving to a club like Liverpool as a 23 year old and immediately taking a place in the spotlight as the starting goalkeeper is a lot more intimidating than most like to acknowledge. The most common retort to statements like this usually is along the lines of, "Well he's a professional, so he should get on with his job." This does hold some truth, but if you ask me, …
