Liverpool's Transfer Window: As One Door Opens...

Liverpool's Transfer Window: As One Door Opens...

Much of the focus of the summer – which is still only weeks old, it should be said – for fans of any club, is the possibility and speculation of the transfer window. We’re all anxious to see who we can get through the door and onto the pitch for next season’s inevitable League and Champions League double, but it’s also worth remembering that there are two elements to all this. While incoming signings are by far the more exciting, …
Do these loan players have a future with the Reds?

Do these loan players have a future with the Reds?

There are a number of notable players currently enjoying spells away from Anfield, but with only three months left of the season, will they be welcomed back into the squad come the summer or will they be shipped out again, temporarily or permanently? There are currently 13 senior players out on loan; ranging from former PSG captain Mamadou Sakho at Crystal Palace to 22-year-old striker Jack Dunn at Tranmere Rovers. Some of them are quality players who just needed game …
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 …
Another Crocked Liverbird: Liverpool's Knee-Hilistic Past

Another Crocked Liverbird: Liverpool's Knee-Hilistic Past

Some weeks make you wish God had come up with something other than knees - weeks when you can't wear shorts for fear of seeing your own knees in a mirror and losing all sense of what it means to 'be'. It has been a year since the beginning of one such week, when as a result of two Liverpool employees falling over in unconnected incidents, the phrase ‘anterior cruciate ligament’ achieved unprecedented frequency of use. At the time, Danny Ings …
A Case for Marković

A Case for Marković

Since his arrival from Benfica two summers ago for a healthy £20 million, the word which best describes Serbian wide man Lazar Marković has almost universally been "frustrating." In his debut season he struggled to break into the first team, despite inconsistent performances from fellow new-boy Adam Lallana. While Lallana struggled to get into promising positions and his touch too often let him down, Lallana worked tirelessly and his work ethic was never in doubt. Marković, meanwhile, struggled to affect play …
2016/2017 - The Season of Sturridge?

2016/2017 - The Season of Sturridge?

Love him or loathe him we as Liverpool fans have to accept that Daniel Sturridge's Liverpool career has been a bit of an unsolved mystery. The mystery revolves around whether the year Liverpool finished as runners up in the Premier League and Sturridge hit over 20 goals was an anomaly. As bizarre as it sounds people do loathe Sturridge. They resent the fact we've been so reliant on him and he hasn't been there to shoulder the burden. To them …
Can the Attack Fire Liverpool into the Top 4?

Can the Attack Fire Liverpool into the Top 4?

The Liverpool Echo, more specifically James Pearce, recently published an article informing Liverpool fans that Jurgen Klopp no longer had an interest in Bayern Munich's Mario Gotze and he was happy with his attacking options moving forward into the new season. Given the Reds were looking to bring in Monaco's Kylian Mbappe and Rennes' Ousmane Dembele it does strike me as odd that after only one attacking signing coming in so far this Summer in Sadio Mane, and with Jordon …
Why Markovic Could be Klopp's Wildcard

Why Markovic Could be Klopp's Wildcard

When Lazar Markovic signed for Liverpool in the Summer of 2014 it was seen as a coup. This was one of Europe's most exciting footballers who was coming off the back of a really impressive season with Portuguese giants Benfica.  He joined the Reds despite reported interest from Chelsea and Juventus. The Primeira Liga is a bit of a litmus test for players. More often than not players who do well in Portugal go on to impress in Europe. His …
Liverpool's Transfer Committee Shows Patience is Necessary

Liverpool's Transfer Committee Shows Patience is Necessary

Liverpool have this reputation in the transfer market for being grossly negligent in their recruitment of players. Make no bones about it, Liverpool have spent recklessly in the past and signed some average players for extortionate fees. There's no denying that and there's no escaping it. As supporters of the club it's our cross to bear. Fans of other clubs taunt us with the fees we've splurged on players like Andy Carroll, Dejan Lovren, Adam Lallana, Lazar Markovic and Christian …
If I had £100 million to spend at Liverpool FC

If I had £100 million to spend at Liverpool FC

"Write an article about who you would sign if you had £100 million to spend at Liverpool." AnfieldIndex overlord Gags and editor of the site Dan Rhodes tempted me with this topic. I've not replaced Jurgen Klopp as Reds boss, this isn't Football Manager, Instead I've decided to head up the much fabled transfer committee; I've appointed myself as the Director of Football. I have £100 million to spend plus whatever I raise from sales to bring in players I …
