Three Potential Signings for Liverpool this summer

Three Potential Signings for Liverpool this summer

As is always the case with a club that are almost exclusively in transition between coaches and have a relatively high turnover of players in their squad, Liverpool and their fans are inundated with links to players from around the globe. Whether it is agent posturing, touting his players’ availability around in the media in order to garner interest, or journalists making stabs in the dark, however, the vast majority of these links are unfounded and ultimately come to nothing. …
Alternatives to Alex Teixeira

Alternatives to Alex Teixeira

With the looming figure of deadline day hovering beyond the next horizon, and Sky’s ever-present coverage seemingly set to focus on whether Liverpool will be successful in their pursuit of an attacker, specifically of Shakhtar’s devastating little Brazilian, questions are abound. Will Liverpool re-enter negotiations? Will Shakhtar be convinced into selling their prize asset? Will Liverpool agree to pay an astronomical fee, and if not, will they do any alternative business on deadline day? It is posing that last question …
Liverpool's Transfer Policy: Does it Need Changing?

Liverpool's Transfer Policy: Does it Need Changing?

Football, as we are constantly being told, is a game that hovers on the ever-wobbly thread of a single decision. It is not, as we are also constantly being told, a game that is made by a single manager, but rather the circumstances which surround a decision made by a single manager. Yet it is these single, individual decisions which can form the basis – or indeed cast a swift change of fortune – when considering the entire season as …

Analysis of Liverpool's Spending | Summer 2014 Transfer Fees Round Up

As most have been made aware, the £835m spent by Premier League clubs during this summer's transfer window was the most ever. Not just in England, but in any league in the world. Ever. The previous record of £630m was also held by the Premier League from 2013 is still a figure that hasn't been matched elsewhere. The new TV deal gave each club an ADDITIONAL £25m revenue that would surely have an impact on the spending by all clubs. …
Are Liverpool The Right Club for Fabio Borini?

Are Liverpool The Right Club for Fabio Borini?

On-going speculation and several transfer links with other clubs has clouded what might have been a pleasant summer holiday for Fabio Borini. Whilst most 'fringe' players would enjoy attracting interest from other Premier League clubs offering regular first-team action, Borini was having none of it. After enjoying a successful campaign on loan at Sunderland last season, it seemed logical that the Italian would become a permanent fixture in Gus Poyet's squad. Last season, Borini netted seven goals in 32 Premier …
How Transfers Work, Sometimes Don't - and Why.

How Transfers Work, Sometimes Don't - and Why.

I've been thinking about writing something on this for a while, the way transfers work today - or don't in many cases, the seemingly infinite variables and how they differ from those those of yesteryear, and the carefree days of yore - if you believe in all that. There was however an obvious snag, in that although I'm middle-aged, well educated, well versed in all kinds of funding bidding, project management and acquisitions in the arts and education sector, I'm …

Liverpool's Transfer Window So Far | How The New Boys Could Line Up

Callum Huckle reviews the transfer window so far and looks at how the new boys could line up for Liverpool next season. Done Deals    Rickie Lambert arrived, a little out of the blue, from Southampton while we’re were supposedly courting Adam Lallana from the same club - but for £4.5 million this could prove to be a decidedly shrewd piece of business and it always breeds confidence when transfers are wrapped up quickly and early. It’s pretty easy to take …

Liverpool's January Window Links

Liverpool's January Window Links

Although the transfer window has been shut for nearly two months, it’s slowly beginning to rise and before you know it players will be wearing a new kit and possibly a new number. Liverpool should look to be active and not only continue to add depth to the squad but also add some players of a certain quality. Liverpool supporters are well aware how awful the Redmen’s first window under manager Brendan Rodgers went and I think Rodgers hasn’t forgotten …

Liverpool Summer Transfer Round-Up & Evaluation

After missing the Champions League the last three seasons, Liverpool are hoping to boost their team with all the new signings they have made this summer.  Liverpool have had a tough time finishing sixth, seventh, eighth, and seventh in the last four years and it has gotten tougher for them to attract the big player without Champions League football and have been wasteful with their money in recent years.
