Liverpool Not Signing A Centre-Back Is Unforgivable

Liverpool Not Signing A Centre-Back Is Unforgivable

Liverpool have made plenty of glaring errors throughout history, both on and off the pitch. Allowing Tom Hicks and George Gillett to buy the club was a horrific decision, in hindsight, and appointing Roy Hodgson was ineptitude of the highest order. The list goes on. In terms of transfer business, not bringing in a top class centre-back this summer has to be one of worst mistakes for a very long time. I’m a fairly laid-back fan, but every time I …
Liverpool's Manchester Litmus Test

Liverpool's Manchester Litmus Test

Most of the question marks over Liverpool’s ability to challenge for titles this season have been over their squad depth – and rightly so. But this implies that there is a general consensus amongst Liverpool fans that in general the starting team is good enough to compete with the very elite – at least at Premier League level. However this season, that hypothesis hasn’t been put to the test. Until now. That’s not to say that Liverpool haven’t been brilliant …
FSG - Learning From Past Mistakes?

FSG - Learning From Past Mistakes?

Things have changed a lot in Liverpool football club and in football in general since Fenway Sports Group acquired the Reds back in 2010. FSG themselves have evolved as owners after trying several different approaches in managing the organization within the club with questionable success. It is still too early to rate this summer's deals (or the lack of them). Some supporters are cautiously optimistic, for others failing to sing a starting caliber centre-back is inexcusable. LFC went after top …
Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain compared to LFC's midfield

Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain compared to LFC's midfield

Liverpool's new signing, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, costing a reported 35-40m GBP fee, will arrive and provide some much-needed squad depth and quality. For a midfield, that only three games ago, I, and many other fans criticised for not being proactive or creative enough, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain seems a step in the right direction for the club in addressing that issue. However, after two barnstorming midfield efforts - against Hoffenheim and Arsenal - in which Can, Wijnaldum and Henderson all looked imperious, where …
Welcome to Liverpool (In 2018), Naby Keita!

Welcome to Liverpool (In 2018), Naby Keita!

We've got him, he's ours. I feel like a child who has just wandered downstairs on Christmas Day, and so should you. Naby Keita is a Liverpool player. A Red. A Scouser. Admittedly, many people - myself included - hadn't heard of him this time last year. But, if a week is a long time in politics, then a year is a long time in football. Indeed, politics has played some role in the transfer, with the rare way in …
Liverpool beat Arsenal by four, let the season begin!

Liverpool beat Arsenal by four, let the season begin!

Arsenal rolled over like a puppy as Liverpool produced a devastating attacking display to whack the Gunners by four on Sunday evening. Jürgen Klopp's side were improved at the back, impressive in midfield and imperious going forward. The pre-match decision to drop, rest, whatever, Simon Mignolet for Loris Karius was much talked about, but mattered little thanks to fantastic display's from those in front of the German. Joe Gomez again filled in capably for Trent Alexander-Arnold, filling in himself for …
Scouting Kerem Demirbay - Hoffenheim's Electric Man

Scouting Kerem Demirbay - Hoffenheim's Electric Man

As Liverpool stormed into the Champions League group stages with an effervescent performance, their opponents seemed awed by the big stage. Julian Nagelsmann’s men fell victim to Liverpool’s superb attacking impetus, though their achievement is no less impressive. Hoffenheim got to the Champions League qualifying stages off the back of a tremendous campaign, with a young and idealistic manager who has vowed to play a brand of exciting football. One of that brand’s chief proponents has been Kerem Demirbay, who …
Observations as Liverpool breeze past Hoffenheim

Observations as Liverpool breeze past Hoffenheim

Liverpool sealed their place in the group stage of the Champions League on Wednesday night with an utterly ruthless attacking performance seeing off a resolute Hoffenheim side 4-2, with an aggregate score of 6-3. Here are some observations from the match. Mané runs the show...again If you needed any further proof that Sadio Mané is Liverpool's most important player, this was it. The Senegalese international was a constant menace to Hoffenheim, particularly in the first forty-five when his quick feet …
It's time for Emre Can to start dominating football matches

It's time for Emre Can to start dominating football matches

Putting contract issues aside, this season will be a decisive one for Emre Can. Whether he is to have a long term future at Anfield is still unknown but what is clear is that the injury suffered to Adam Lallana which is due to keep him out for at least two months and the ongoing problems with Phil Coutinho means the German powerhouse has a great opportunity to stamp his authority on this team. Despite questions still remaining as to …
Why Liverpool Should Return for Julian Draxler

Why Liverpool Should Return for Julian Draxler

Following a superbly eye-catching Confederations Cup, the stock of one former German wunderkind turned peripheral star seems to have not been higher. Julian Draxler, formerly of Schalke and VfLWolfsburg, is a name hitting the rumour mill once again, with the news that Paris Saint-Germain are set to continue on their path to utter and total supremacy via the purchase of Monaco’s Kylian Mbappe. A forward arsenal of Mbappé, Neymar, Edinson Cavani, Àngel Di Maria, Lucas Moura, Goncalo Guedes and Javier …
