Rhian Brewster Signs New Deal As He Edges Closer To First-Team Picture

Rhian Brewster Signs New Deal As He Edges Closer To First-Team Picture

Rhian Brewster has agreed his first professional contract with Liverpool according to reports, easing fears over his future. The 18-year-old has been the source of some speculation in recent weeks, tipped to follow in the footsteps of 20-year-old Leon Bailey and U17 national teammate Jadon Sancho who left Manchester City for Borussia Dortmund by moving to the Bundesliga in a bid to gain regular first-team football. However, Jürgen Klopp and Michael Edwards have worked hard to ensure negotiations ended in …
Has “This Is Our Year” Ever Been More Justified At Liverpool?

Has “This Is Our Year” Ever Been More Justified At Liverpool?

"This is our year." That hopeful saying surrounding Liverpool's title aspirations has been used to ridicule Reds supporters since the glory days came to a crashing halt in 1990, often fairly so. Every year we seem to say it and invariably it ends in tears, with our pre-season predictions proved incorrect. A lot of the time it has been blind optimism, but there have also been occasions when the levels of confidence have been justified, following seasons of great promise. …
Liverpool's 2018/2019 Premier League Schedule - Analysis

Liverpool's 2018/2019 Premier League Schedule - Analysis

The fixture list is out: https://twitter.com/AnfieldIndex/status/1007310540669181952 You have probably already read reaction pieces and circled dates on the calendar. Even with the disappointing turn of events around Nabil Fekir failed (for now) transfer to Anfield the new season brings a lot of hope - a revamped midfield, a defence was very solid for over half a season and the magical attacking trio. But how about a more numbers-based approach on schedule. Last season, as part of my line up analysis …
Patience As The World Cup Disrupts LFC's Spending Spree

Patience As The World Cup Disrupts LFC's Spending Spree

For Liverpool fans it’s an exciting if slightly impatient time. Naby Keita and Fabinho are set to join the club on the 1st of July, symbolising a complete restructure in the club’s midfield. Fans are still expecting upgrades in every position – defence, midfield and attack – with the possibility of an upgrade on Loris Karius also in the works. But the issue is that this year, the transfer window is shorter. The World Cup is underway, and the window closes …
Hakim Ziyech Would be the Perfect Response to the Fekir Transfer Saga

Hakim Ziyech Would be the Perfect Response to the Fekir Transfer Saga

If Liverpool’s pursuit of Fabinho was an old-school signing, bereft of a long drawn out process with a strangely anticlimactic moment at the end, Fekir was a good old-fashioned transfer saga. From rumour to confirmation in under two hours, Michael Edwards wrapped up a deal for the defensive midfielder without any complications. The pursuit of Fekir however, was anything but. Liverpool appeared to have a deal for £49million, rising to approximately £53m wrapped up, with the Lyon attacker pictured doing …
Why Alberto Moreno Shouldn’t be Liverpool’s Second Choice Left-Back

Why Alberto Moreno Shouldn’t be Liverpool’s Second Choice Left-Back

Despite a strong start to the season last time out, Alberto Moreno finds himself as Liverpool’s second choice left-back - largely through no fault of his own. Our flying Scotsman, Andy Robertson, has been everything we’ve dreamt our left-back would be for the past six years. He’s solid defensively, positionally sound and poses a real threat going forward. His link-up play with the likes of Sadio Mane, James Milner and Roberto Firmino is brilliant. Although Robertson has been superb since …

The average post-match rating is the average of all AI match ratings the player received during the season. Loris Karius - average post-match rating 6.33, writers season rating …
Karius' concussion reflects lack of knowledge and awareness over head injuries

Karius' concussion reflects lack of knowledge and awareness over head injuries

It may have little standing on the Champions League final result, but news of Loris Karius suffering a concussion during a clash with Sergio Ramos in Kiev reflects far more pressing problems within football. Van Dijk and Sergio Ramos had a coming together from a Madrid corner before the Spaniard was sent hurtling towards the Liverpool ‘keeper and extending an elbow. Karius could be heard screaming on the television such was the extent of Ramos’ blow. He got up to …
Only One Goalkeeper Makes Sense for Liverpool

Only One Goalkeeper Makes Sense for Liverpool

With the Liverpool fanbase in resounding agreement over the sudden need to upgrade the goalkeeper position who is the player to take the number-one kit for the next ten years? https://twitter.com/jeramye/status/1000466433879478274 KNOW WHEN TO HOLD ‘EM The Reds are in need of a ‘keeper clear-out, but that shouldn’t include Loris Karius, especially after the news of the concussion he suffered during the Champions League Final. Sell Simon Mignolet and Danny Ward as they deserve to play somewhere, but Loris Karius …
Fabinho and Fekir Perfect For Klopp's Versatile Reds

Fabinho and Fekir Perfect For Klopp's Versatile Reds

I hate starting any article about Liverpool with a comparison to Man United. But sometimes an opportunity presents itself for such a stark comparison and it gets stuck in your head to the point where it’s impossible to avoid. So indulge me for a moment. When talking to a United fan recently (I know), he mentioned that they desperately needed a right-winger and Bale would be perfect. I pointed out that they have Sanchez, Martial, Rashford et al, and he …
