Liverpool’s Midfield Trio Must Be Kept Apart

Liverpool’s Midfield Trio Must Be Kept Apart

Before Philippe Coutinho decided to cause trouble and Adam Lallana picked up a lengthy injury, Liverpool’s best possible starting lineup was a mouthwatering proposition. Assuming your approach was as gung-ho as mine, it was easy to envisage Coutinho and Lallana ahead of a deep-lying midfielder, with Mohamed Salah, Sadio Mane and Roberto Firmino further wreaking havoc in attack. To have that quintet all on the same pitch at once is enough to blow any team in Europe away on its …
A Tale of Two Day Trippers

A Tale of Two Day Trippers

At a club as big as Liverpool, fans are bound to come from places all around the world. Tickets become harder to acquire and more expensive. The team leaves for places like China or America during preseason tours, signing autographs for fans, visiting the sights, and making players available to all kinds of media. So if you are on your way to Anfield this autumn, before you gaze angrily at the two guys going through the turnstiles with American accents, …
Hoffenheim 1-2 Liverpool: A Near Perfect Night?

Hoffenheim 1-2 Liverpool: A Near Perfect Night?

It was hardly going to be an easy night. Liverpool were away, in their first Champions League game under Klopp, to perhaps the toughest side available in the draw, Hoffenheim, who had not lost for over a year at home. Alongside this, there was the ongoing Coutinho situation, whilst two of Liverpool's best offensive players - Daniel Sturridge and Adam Lallana - remain sidelined, so too Nathaniel Clyne. Nevertheless, this was the amalgamation of all the hard work from the 2016-17 …
Candidates for Liverpool’s MOTM vs Watford

Candidates for Liverpool’s MOTM vs Watford

Liverpool were denied an opening day victory as Miguel Britos's late header shared the spoils for Watford at Vicarage Road. Much of the pre-match talk was dominated by the headlines of Philippe Coutinho, who had handed in a transfer request the Friday before the game. The general consensus was that the Reds had to put the stories regarding the Brazilian to one side as they looked to open their Premier League season with a win at Marco Silva's Watford. It …
Stay Calm and Trust Klopp

Stay Calm and Trust Klopp

It's an obvious thing to state and it can perhaps come across as being somewhat condescending, but the transfer window does not close until 11pm UK time on Thursday 31st August. So, at the time of writing this, there's still nearly three more weeks to go. However, it seems that final judgement, in all its absolution, has already been passed by many. Don't get me wrong, I think our transfer window has been a little underwhelming up to now. The …
Is Naby Keita the Phil Coutinho Replacement?

Is Naby Keita the Phil Coutinho Replacement?

Will this transfer window end? First Liverpool were getting van Dijk, then they were apologising for getting van Dijk, then they were getting Keita, then they weren’t getting Keita at any price. Salah seemed to take a millennium, Liverpool effectively traded a bang-average Kevin Stewart for a potential-laden Andy Robertson, and the future of Phillipe Coutinho seemed comfortable, given the lack of real disruption. And then, it didn’t seem all that comfortable. So, should Liverpool give into Phillipe Coutinho’s demands …
Liverpool Always One Step Behind Until they Fix Their Shaky Foundations

Liverpool Always One Step Behind Until they Fix Their Shaky Foundations

Ask any Liverpool fan, or any football fan for that matter, about where they want their team to be challenging and they’ll give you the same answer. Naturally, they want to be vying for the title, mounting an assault on the domestic cup and pushing for that all-important Champions League trophy. In order to do that, you need to have water tight foundations and carry real authority and verve going forward. Liverpool have such prowess in the final third of …
Philippe Coutinho: Should He Stay or Should He Go?

Philippe Coutinho: Should He Stay or Should He Go?

Earlier this week it was reported Philippe Coutinho would only leave Liverpool if a deal was to be done amicably. This ensured the ball was in the club’s court. As long as we reject any offers, Coutinho would remain a Liverpool player come the start of September. A morning and afternoon of twists and turns have thrown the Brazilian’s near future up in the air. FSG made an official statement this morning which declared:
‘The club’s definitive stance is that …
Liverpool and Western Union

Liverpool and Western Union

Earlier this week, Liverpool announced a new sponsor and company logo to go along with Standard Chartered on the kit. Western Union, the financial and communications company based in Colorado, now have their logo emblazoned on the arm of the new shirt. Liverpool Chief Executive Peter Moore said: “When the Premier League announced in February that we were able to go look for a sleeve sponsor for our jerseys we were excited on a number of levels,” Whatever floats your …
Southampton's Virgil Van Dijk To Make A Move To Liverpool FC?

Southampton's Virgil Van Dijk To Make A Move To Liverpool FC?

Yahoo Sport claims that Southampton’s Virgil Van Dijk is being offered a large sum of money to move to Liverpool FC. Liverpool have reportedly offered the star footballer more money than City and Chelsea, and that the Dutchman is seriously considering the move as a result. Liverpool isn’t the only team wanting to get Van Dijk on side. Everton, Arsenal, Chelsea, and City have all shown an interest in signing him up to strengthen their defences. Although a potential move …
