Loris Karius: Forgotten But Not Gone

Loris Karius: Forgotten But Not Gone

Amid all the summer madness of transfer talk, as well as the constant praise for goalkeepers Simon Mignolet and Danny Ward, Loris Karius is now a player going completely under the radar. Having arrived as a devilishly handsome, highly-rated young German, it was no surprise to see him filling column inches and gaining immediate admirers last summer. He felt like the answer to Liverpool's ongoing goalkeeping issues.  Things didn’t pan out the way the 24-year-old would have hoped for, however, …
Time For Firmino To Break The Curse Of Liverpool’s No.9 Shirt

Time For Firmino To Break The Curse Of Liverpool’s No.9 Shirt

There are a few iconic shirt numbers that you associate with Liverpool Football Club, with both No. 7 and No. 9 very much the standouts. James Milner currently occupies the former once worn majestically by Kenny Dalglish and Luis Suarez, much to the dismay of many who want a more glamorous player donning it, but the latter has been vacant for a year. That is until this week, when it was confirmed that Roberto Firmino would take the honour, with the …
How Will Mohamed Salah Fare at Liverpool?

How Will Mohamed Salah Fare at Liverpool?

In the most recent edition of the Gags Tandon Show, Gabriele Marcotti, from both ESPN and The Times, featured as the guest: profiling Mohamed Salah and discussing potential concerns that Liverpool fans may have. For many Liverpool fans, their main concern is why Mohamed Salah, a player that could not establish himself at Chelsea is now one of Liverpool's primary targets, and, by extension, is he of the quality Liverpool need to improve in order to build towards those Premier …
Welcome to Liverpool: Mohamed Salah

Welcome to Liverpool: Mohamed Salah

Liverpool have officially completed the signing of Mohamed Salah from Roma. The Egyptian international, who registered 15 goals and 11 assists last season for the Giallorossi, joins Liverpool for a fee believed to be £34m before add ons, after back and forth negotiations between the two clubs and will be wearing the number 11 shirt previously worn by Roberto Firmino. Salah represents the first proper foray into the transfer market in what will be a pivotal summer for Liverpool and Jürgen …
Do Liverpool need a new striker?

Do Liverpool need a new striker?

The 2016/17 season was, broadly speaking, a successful one. Attaining Champions League football was the bare minimum for a 'successful season', but under Klopp's leadership, the team did so. In the process, Liverpool scored 78 goals in the league, at an average of just over two per game. Coutinho and Mané both scored 13 in the league, whilst Roberto Firmino contributed with 11. Whilst it is a positive that the goalscoring burden is shared across the forward line, what Liverpool …
Crucial Summer Ahead for Sheyi Ojo

Crucial Summer Ahead for Sheyi Ojo

Liverpool youngster Sheyi Ojo is set for a defining summer after undergoing a disappointing 2016/17 campaign that saw him fail to establish himself under Jurgen Klopp. Breaking through the ranks in 2015/16, Ojo has since drifted between Liverpool’s Under-23's and the first team setup – though predominantly in terms of training rather than appearances. Despite lots of hype about what he could offer the side, the 19-year-old has struggled to establish a role for himself during Klopp’s first season at …
Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain Would Be A Shrewd Piece of Business

Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain Would Be A Shrewd Piece of Business

With Arsenal stalling on a new deal for Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, Liverpool are among a number of clubs linked with a summer move. That’s caused somewhat of a stir from the fan-base, with the reaction varying from apprehension to excitement. Joining Southampton at the age of seven, Chamberlain propelled himself into the first-team picture in 2010, making his debut at the age of 16. An impressive campaign in which he scored nine times while assisting the same number in 34 games …
Why a Deal for Oxlade-Chamberlain Doesn't Add Up

Why a Deal for Oxlade-Chamberlain Doesn't Add Up

The link between Liverpool and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain is one that has stuck around, despite Jürgen Klopp himself denying it, and it’s one that has created a lot of debate amongst Liverpool supporters. Unlike Salah, Van Dijk or Lacazette, who all were almost universally hyped up as soon as the link was made, reactions to the Ox have varied from delight, to apprehension, to disbelief, and even confusion. Certainly it’s a signing that is not straightforwardly good or bad and reaction …
Second-Season Masterclass From Magic Mane?

Second-Season Masterclass From Magic Mane?

Some players take a while to adjust at a club of Liverpool’s stature, with the enormous pressure on them every minute of every day something they cannot cope with. For Sadio Mane, however, his Reds career could barely have got off to a better start. Having arrived in relatively low-key circumstances last summer, with the 25-year-old labelled as “just another Southampton player”, some exciting pre-season performances gradually saw him gain admirers. Then, on his official Liverpool debut, Mane decided to …
Looking through Liverpool's transfer window pain

Looking through Liverpool's transfer window pain

The transfer window is not even officially open yet, it's only on the latch, but already I feel like closing the window, locking it, throwing away the key and drawing the curtains. Then, I can lie in a darkened room, wrap myself in a duvet and eat chocolates as I watch footage of seasons past when we lived in simpler times. Back then, there might have been the odd story in the papers, but usually the first we heard of …
