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 …
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

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.

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 …
Virgil Van Dijk Proves Transfer Requests Are Still A Thing

Virgil Van Dijk Proves Transfer Requests Are Still A Thing

They say the purpose of the darkness is that it makes us appreciate the light. And following a night where publications from opposite corners of the globe had Phil Coutinho packed up and gone, any positive news would have been welcome. The sun still came up in Liverpool and the headlines improved as the day went on. “Jurgen insists Liverpool won’t sell Coutinho,” said the Guardian. That’s our Klopp! Then came the classic James Pearce denial. Get in! “Phil would …
Jurgen's Four Centre-Backs

Jurgen's Four Centre-Backs

Well, the blood really is up, isn’t it? To be honest, the last few days have been too much for a man of my all too advancing years and, on Saturday, I took the decision to momentarily mute Twitter until this was all over. After all, I’ve (mis)used these pages before to point out that I like a summer break from football. I need time to recover from the ten months of joy and anxiety of a season – and …
Joe Gomez Should Remain At Liverpool This Season

Joe Gomez Should Remain At Liverpool This Season

Joe Gomez has endured a torrid time since moving to Liverpool, suffering an untimely ACL injury just seven days into Jurgen Klopp’s tenure as manager. The 20-year-old was ruled out for the rest of the season after being forced off the pitch ten minutes into England Under-21’s game against Kazakhstan.
“Gomez came here and I met him for the first time. What a wonderful young play – tall and muscles in the right positions. From this point on it goes …
Reviewing A Banquet Without Wine - A History of the Reds in the PL Era

Reviewing A Banquet Without Wine - A History of the Reds in the PL Era

When offered the opportunity to read an advance copy of A Banquet Without Wine, I eagerly accepted; it was a welcome break from the academic historical literature which my studies demand, and, given my experience with previous works from The Tomkins Times, my qualitative expectations were high. Beyond that, I remained open to hearing an interpretation of Liverpool's recent history, that I, like many fans, have lived through, and is well versed in. For Liverpool fans, the story detailed within A Banquet …
Assessing Liverpool's Defence For The Upcoming Campaign

Assessing Liverpool's Defence For The Upcoming Campaign

Having signed Dominic Solanke and smashing the club’s record transfer fee for Mohamed Salah, Liverpool have begun identifying key weaknesses within their current side. Andy Robertson is the latest to join The Reds this summer as Jurgen Klopp looks to address what has been a troubling position for several years now. However, there remains a number of issues within the current squad, particularly in the defensive areas. So, with a new season on the horizon, how are Liverpool shaping up …
Why People Shouldn't Forget Henderson's Impact So Quickly

Why People Shouldn't Forget Henderson's Impact So Quickly

‘You don’t know what you have until it’s gone’ is a worldwide known statement, and a particularly poignant one for football fans. It’s very easy to forget the importance or impact of certain players after they’ve experienced a lengthy spell on the side-lines. Such is the case for Jordan Henderson, whose untimely injury at the end of last season saw many forget just what he can bring to the first-team. Every year it seems as though Henderson has things to …
