Seven Sensible Summer Signings for Liverpool

Seven Sensible Summer Signings for Liverpool

The season isn’t quite over, but following another roller coaster year of highs and lows — from competing for the title and chasing another cup final, to a loss of form and a dreadful run of results, back to chasing the top four — the club needs to press on with their summer transfer business. As the rumours gather pace, the Echo runs stories of missed targets and underwhelming interest and the season continues to flabbergast, let’s take a look …

Liverpool in 2016/17: Has Progress Been Made?

With an international break ensuring that there’s no Premier League football this weekend, and with nine games to go in a finely poised season, this is the perfect time to assess Liverpool’s season, where it’s at and what we need to do in our final few games, as well as our general development under Jürgen Klopp. This article will look at how the season has gone so far, what’s left for the club to do, and whether or not significant …
Which Strikers should Klopp be targeting this August?

Which Strikers should Klopp be targeting this August?

Eddie Jones, England Rugby’s head coach, has tried to change the way replacements are perceived to some degree of success by renaming them ‘finishers.’ Applying that to Liverpool players though – whether they start or on the bench - might take longer to stick given their problems in front of goal. For all the pretty football played, this season will be best remembered as one of missed opportunities – both literally and metaphorically. While Brendon Rogers’ side could rely on …
Liverpool must focus on a top three finish… just to be certain

Liverpool must focus on a top three finish… just to be certain

It was only a second-half meltdown in Basel in the Europa League final against Sevilla that deprived Liverpool of a place in this season’s Champions’ League and there remains a remote possibility that the two competitions could combine to cause us more sorrow this term. All the media focus is on the race for Champions’ League places via a top four Premier League finish but, as we reach the business end of the two big European club competitions, there could …
Stats Analysis: Liverpool's Defensive Inconsistency

Stats Analysis: Liverpool's Defensive Inconsistency

Three quarters of another season have passed and it looks like Liverpool FC has the same old defensive problems. The team is on course to concede over 40 goals for the 7th straight season. That means that the last time LFC conceded less than a goal per match - you guessed it, Rafa Benitez was in charge. Jurgen Klopp has insisted that this season things have gotten better so let's take a deeper look. Goalkeepers Loris Karius was bought in …
New Deal For Can? It's A No Brainer

New Deal For Can? It's A No Brainer

Starting 46 games last season, Emre Can was tipped to have an extensive and successful career at Anfield. He was Klopp’s go-to man, running games in the number 6 role by injecting drive and energy to help push Liverpool towards a Capital One Cup and Europa League final. This campaign, however, has seen Can’s career stall alarmingly, with the 23-year-old struggling to establish himself as a key member of the squad. A Stuttering Season Turning Good? Emre Can has divided opinions this season …
Predicting The Final Top Six: Where Will Liverpool Finish?

Predicting The Final Top Six: Where Will Liverpool Finish?

Chelsea may be cruising towards the Premier League title in a frustratingly ruthless fashion, but there is still a huge amount to fight for at the top of the table. Granted, securing a top-four finish should never be seen as a giant achievement for a club of Liverpool’s stature, but being in next season’s Champions League is of huge importance. Rarely has the battle to qualify for Europe’s most lucrative and rewarding club competition been so exciting and unpredictable, with …
Booing and Fan Hypocrisy

Booing and Fan Hypocrisy

Football fans are hypocrites. Downright hypocrites. Yes, you! I’m talking about you. Specifically you. You more than most. Not me though. I’m pure as the driven snow. What has driven me to this tirade? It’s this. On Sunday afternoon, in the hammering rain of the Etihad, Liverpool’s left-back was booed. People actually contorted their faces and made a sound they probably haven’t used since the last time they watched a pantomime. His crime? Touching the ball. Booed. Just think about …
Mr Liverpool - Ronnie Moran

Mr Liverpool - Ronnie Moran

It’s never easy writing a tribute when someone’s no longer around. You think of all the things you want to say or should have said such that should the person you’re writing about read it, they’d do so with a smile on their face until the very last word. Writing when the person's gone only leaves a hollow that forever will remain empty. The smiling, shining demeanour of Ronnie Moran is one that will stay forever. 44 trophies over 50 …
Liverpool's Champions League Fate Is In Their Own Hands

Liverpool's Champions League Fate Is In Their Own Hands

Liverpool continued their unbeaten record against the top six sides on Sunday in a thrilling and frantic 1-1 draw with Manchester City at the Etihad. James Milner opened the scoring from the spot to give the perfect response to the surprisingly hostile reception he received at his former club, before Sergio Aguero equalised from a low cross into the box by Kevin de Bruyne. The Reds had a golden chance to take all the spoils when Roberto Firmino squared for …
