Liverpool's Priority Transfers For January

Liverpool's Priority Transfers For January

Now that Liverpool have emphatically topped their Champions League group with a 7-0 demolition of Spartak the club's needs for the January window have become much more clear. We polled a few Anfield Index contributors, asking them what their two priority transfers would be for the January window to set Liverpool up to add to the trophy case at Melwood in this season and beyond. One large Dutchman was a popular pick, but who would you prioritize in the winter …
When The Going Gets Tough, Liverpool Capitulate

When The Going Gets Tough, Liverpool Capitulate

Has there been a more predictable goal conceded than Sevilla’s late effort against Liverpool on Tuesday night? Sadly, yes there has. Plenty. And they all seem to feature the Reds. Jurgen Klopp’s side had done so well to get some momentum going after losing at Tottenham last month, with four wins in a row recorded in professional fashion. Everyone knew that the trip to the Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan would be a far greater test than Huddersfield, Maribor, West Ham and …
Signs of progress for Liverpool following the Wembley debacle

Signs of progress for Liverpool following the Wembley debacle

After the horrible result against Spurs scrutiny has been on Jurgen Klopp to see if he could get a response from his players. 3 games later, with 10 goals scored and 1 conceded, it is fair to say that Klopp has the ability to get a reaction from his players in times of adversity. There is no better example of this than in his final season at Dortmund. The German overcame a shocking start to finish the campaign with some …
Emre Can - A Player With Potential

Emre Can - A Player With Potential

Potential is a funny word. It’s a word that can often be used as a backhanded compliment or an excuse for poor performance – well he’s got potential. It can be a word that ignites the feeling of general excitement – he’s got potential. It can be a word to slot in when you’re genuinely not sure on your judgement of someone – he’s got potential. Now potential seems to be tied to a large extent with age, which is …
Woeful Finishing Costs Liverpool Yet Again

Woeful Finishing Costs Liverpool Yet Again

There was a moment in the final stages of Liverpool’s 1-1 draw at Spartak Moscow when you could virtually feel Reds supporters all over the world lose their heads in unison. Roberto Firmino, off the pace all night, was picked out by a lovely Alberto Moreno pass, and needed to just play a simply pass across the box for Mo Salah or Daniel Sturridge to tap in. As was in-keeping with the night as a whole, however, the Brazilian’s lazy …
Loris Karius: Forgotten But Not Gone

Loris Karius: Forgotten But Not Gone

Amid all the summer madness of transfer talk, as well as the constant praise for goalkeepers Simon Mignolet and Danny Ward, Loris Karius is now a player going completely under the radar. Having arrived as a devilishly handsome, highly-rated young German, it was no surprise to see him filling column inches and gaining immediate admirers last summer. He felt like the answer to Liverpool's ongoing goalkeeping issues.  Things didn’t pan out the way the 24-year-old would have hoped for, however, …
The 'Keeper Conundrum!

The 'Keeper Conundrum!

Heading into the summer transfer window, it has been well documented that as a club, we have some areas in which we are particularly sparse in terms of playing staff - left-back and centre forward spring immediately to my mind. But one area in which we definitely aren't short is in between the sticks, but that still doesn't stop the newspapers linking us to more or less every half decent goalkeeper in Europe. It's not just the senior ranks in …
Tale of Liverpool's Season: Doubters to Believers

Tale of Liverpool's Season: Doubters to Believers

Jürgen Klopp had one true ambition this season. Turning doubters into believers. An impressive pre-season, capped off with a 4-0 demolition of Barcelona at a sold-out Wembley Stadium had expectations running high already. But it was the 4-3 victory over Arsenal in the very first game of the season that really got people talking. Sadio Mané was the replacement for Raheem Sterling that Liverpool FC had so desperately needed. Roberto Firmino was well and truly into his groove, Gini Wijnaldum's …

Analysing Liverpool's Season Player By Player

And breathe... A confident and composed 3-0 victory at home to Middlesbrough confirmed Liverpool's spot in the top-four. A clear sign of progression for Jurgen Klopp's first full season in charge at the club, and a platform from which summer transfer dealings will likely stem. With the season now drawn to a close, it's time to take a look at Liverpool's players and assess their campaigns as a whole. Goalkeepers Simon Mignolet – 7 Mignolet has gone from strength to …
