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 …
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 …
Silence at Anfield

Silence at Anfield

It's all gone eerily quiet around Anfield. Not long ago the mood was euphoric; Liverpool had secured Champions League football, and were heading the race to sign Van Dijk. Rather uncharacteristically for Klopp's Liverpool, the news regarding Van Dijk was out in the open, before the player had put pen to paper, or even before Liverpool had submitted a formal offer. After that almighty omnishambles, which played out for the entire football world to see, Liverpool have shut-up shop. In terms of transfer …
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 …
Liverpool Shouldn't Give Up On Van Dijk This Summer

Liverpool Shouldn't Give Up On Van Dijk This Summer

Liverpool have made no secret of their attempts to sign Southampton defender Virgil van Dijk this summer, with the Dutchman earmarked as Jurgen Klopp’s primary defensive target. It seemed like it was all heading for a happy ending, too, when reports emerged of him choosing Liverpool over Manchester City and Chelsea. Finally, the club were about to beat their rivals and land their man. Fans rejoiced. FSG were even praised. What a time to be alive, right…? Wrong. With Southampton …
Will Fixtures Become the Undoing of Liverpool's Squad?

Will Fixtures Become the Undoing of Liverpool's Squad?

This season's provisional Premier League fixture list has just been announced, but what does the fixture list mean for Liverpool in the coming season - especially when considering last season, in which the team struggled with a challenging fixture list: without even accounting for the upcoming Champions League fixtures that will only add further strain to the squad. In order to understand some of the challenges that may lie ahead, it makes sense to look instead at the challenges and …
Liverpool's Transfer Saga: A Sign of Things To Come

Liverpool's Transfer Saga: A Sign of Things To Come

Liverpool’s bungled signing of Southampton centre-back Virgil Van Dijk and subsequent apology might seem to be something only the Reds could pull off. Any fan might think Liverpool alone are capable of allowing a transfer saga to crash and burn this spectacularly. While the Reds are surely culpable, this type of transfer related drama is likely to become commonplace in the weeks, months and years to come. The confluence of relaxed Financial Fair Play rules, and an avalanche of new …
The Boston VVD Party

The Boston VVD Party

A few weeks ago I wrote a piece for Anfield Index, urging the club to be step up the quality of its transfer targets. No more, I claimed, should we shop at the local grocers when we can afford to stroll the aisles at Harrods. After all, we’ve entered the porches of the elite now and are allowed to move away from the discount section. Because the title involved the acronym ‘FSG’ the comments were crammed with people either defending …
Deja Vu All Over Again: Liverpool's Summer Madness

Deja Vu All Over Again: Liverpool's Summer Madness

Ah, the Summer of 2014… World Cup fans on Copa Cabana beach were lining up in front of a poster of Luis Suarez and Liverpool were lining up new signings for our return to the Champions League. The moment Giorgio Chiellini pulled down his shirt to reveal a Suarez shaped bite mark on his shoulder we all knew El Pistolero would be among the outgoings. Though Suarez could never truly be replaced, surely the club would do whatever it took …
