6 Players Who Face A Crucial Summer For Liverpool

6 Players Who Face A Crucial Summer For Liverpool

While every football fan will be engrossed by the World Cup for the next few weeks, those who weren't chosen for their respective countries to feature in Russia will already be putting in the groundwork ahead of a pivotal summer at Liverpool. With two new signings already changing the look of Jürgen Klopp's midfield, further summer recruits could put a number of players in a precarious position regarding their role at the club. Heading into the pre-season campaign without the …
Has “This Is Our Year” Ever Been More Justified At Liverpool?

Has “This Is Our Year” Ever Been More Justified At Liverpool?

"This is our year." That hopeful saying surrounding Liverpool's title aspirations has been used to ridicule Reds supporters since the glory days came to a crashing halt in 1990, often fairly so. Every year we seem to say it and invariably it ends in tears, with our pre-season predictions proved incorrect. A lot of the time it has been blind optimism, but there have also been occasions when the levels of confidence have been justified, following seasons of great promise. …

Liverpool's 2018/2019 Premier League Schedule - Analysis

The fixture list is out: https://twitter.com/AnfieldIndex/status/1007310540669181952 You have probably already read reaction pieces and circled dates on the calendar. Even with the disappointing turn of events around Nabil Fekir failed (for now) transfer to Anfield the new season brings a lot of hope - a revamped midfield, a defence was very solid for over half a season and the magical attacking trio. But how about a more numbers-based approach on schedule. Last season, as part of my line up analysis …

Liverpool FC 17/18: Player Ratings by AI Writers - Part 1

The season is over. It ended just two weeks ago but seems like a lot more. LFC isn't giving us any time to look back: the Champions League final, Fabinho, concussions, Fekir, sir Kenny...

The average post-match rating is the average of all AI match ratings the player received during the season. Loris Karius - average post-match rating 6.33, writers season rating …
Five Potential Attackers to Backup Liverpool's Main Men

Five Potential Attackers to Backup Liverpool's Main Men

Christian Pulisic Dortmund’s American sensation, Christian Pulisic has been on the radar of Liverpool (and Klopp) for a while now. Just nineteen and already laboured with shouldering the burdens of club and country, he’s certainly got experience beyond his years. Still raw and unrefined, Pulisic’s sublime dribbling ability is the first thing that stands out whenever he gets on the ball. Alongside that, however is the tendency to come up big when it matters, such as the winner he scored …
Fabinho and Keita: Here Comes The Snide

Fabinho and Keita: Here Comes The Snide

I can't help but begrudgingly respect Sergio Ramos. There, I said it. It's possibly the worst thing you can say as a Liverpool supporter right now, but rather than childishly sign petitions and cry-arse about his behaviour, I find myself admiring him. I know we’re meant to hate the horrible Spaniard for what he did to our dear Mo Salah - I do in some ways - but what a winner that man is. Perhaps the greatest of his generation. …
Liverpool FC - No Longer Standing Still

Liverpool FC - No Longer Standing Still

As the dust settles on an emotional week for Liverpool supporters, it's almost hard to believe that it began with the heartbreak of seeing our Champions League Final hopes washed away in a flood of tears. Those of Mohamed Salah, cruelly robbed of his chance to shine on the biggest stage in club football, with his World Cup hopes hanging in the balance. Those of Loris Karius, as he begged for forgiveness amid the realisation of the significance of his …
Scouting Fabinho: Liverpool's New Anchor

Scouting Fabinho: Liverpool's New Anchor

Monday Night – UK time: Liverpool fans still reel from their Champions League final loss, yet they are motivated in their club’s resolve to use it as the platform for progress; a bump on the road to something special. Nobody quite knew just how quickly the Reds would get moving on that road, though. As photos emerged of their shiny new Brazilian midfielder, standing clad in that famous Red kit, every Liverpool fan in the world probably had the same …
The Joy Of Hubris: Liverpool v Real Madrid

The Joy Of Hubris: Liverpool v Real Madrid

In some ways this is all to do with Gini Wijnaldum. Last May he broke down the Anfield right and slotted a vital goal past Middlesbrough’s Brad Guzan to calm Red nerves and put us on the way to Champions League qualification. He was then pretty quiet for the intervening months save for a goal against Huddersfield Town. Eleven months from that Boro strike, however, he finally delivered a goal away from home. He chose the second leg of the …
Can a Year of Drama be Punctuated by One Decisive Night?

Can a Year of Drama be Punctuated by One Decisive Night?

From entertaining spectacles on the pitch, embarrassments off of it; Liverpool has been a bigger source for drama than Netflix lately. Will the Champions League final test our cardiovascular health once more or could the punctuation mark on this season be a decisive one? Jurgen Klopp and his team appear so relaxed in the lead up to the final it almost looks artificial, posing for stock-photo worthy pics by the beach in Marbella. That laid-back demeanour is surprising as Liverpool …
