Mohamed Salah: Liverpool’s Biggest Bargain in The Premier League Era?

Mohamed Salah: Liverpool’s Biggest Bargain in The Premier League Era?

Where Does The Egyptian Rank Among Liverpool’s Best Premier League Signings? The sensational Mohamed Salah has been a revelation for Liverpool this season, but where does he rank among Liverpool’s best value signings in the Premier League era? There are a number of contenders in the running for 2017/18’s various player of the year awards, and Mohamed Salah certainly stands among them. However, if there was an award given out each year for the best signing of the season, Salah …
Liverpool's Attack: From Down Right Disaster To Destructive In Just Three Years

Liverpool's Attack: From Down Right Disaster To Destructive In Just Three Years

Cast your minds back to the gloomy 2014/15 season in which Liverpool parted ways with the talismanic figure of Luis Suarez, replacing him with Rickie Lambert and the ever egotistical Mario Balotelli. From goals galore in 2013/14 to a troublesome goal drought the following season, Brendan Rodgers' side went from a team that could do no wrong to one devoid of attacking verve. The £16million move for Balotelli was a gamble that never paid off, with the forward scoring his …
Liverpool Football Club has a new identity

Liverpool Football Club has a new identity

Fast, high energy, counter-attacking football - Liverpool Football Club has a new identity. When Jurgen Klopp was appointed manager back in October 2015, Liverpool Football Club was a team that lacked any sort of identity, yes we were a historic club who once use to grace & conquer Europe on a regular basis but ask any supporter what a Liverpool side looked liked following Rodgers' dismissal and they'd find it hard to tell you. They might point you in the …
Liverpool FC - If You Build It, They Will Stay

Liverpool FC - If You Build It, They Will Stay

Nothing great ever happens in team sports without the supporting cast playing some role on many different levels. Being in the background is usually no longer enough. The supporting cast now needs to contribute more than just hang around waiting to be dragged to titles. Countless times in recent history we have seen the Most Valuable Player in a season miss out on the grand prize despite their stellar performances. In a world were loyalty is now the exception rather …
Why Liverpool Will Always Be Bigger Than Any One Player

Why Liverpool Will Always Be Bigger Than Any One Player

It took all of eight minutes to remind Anfield of one very special fact. Liverpool Football Club is bigger than any player. Alex-Oxlade Chamberlain’s driving run, emphatic finish and impassioned celebration perfectly emblemised the oft-romanticised ‘Liverpool spirit’ – the idea that you don’t buy a great player, rather a player becomes great in the cauldron that is Anfield. Like a gladiatorial pit in Rome; Anfield’s coliseum atmosphere is what decides the fate of its competitors, not their previous reputation or …
The Ramifications Of Philippe Coutinho's Transfer To Barcelona

The Ramifications Of Philippe Coutinho's Transfer To Barcelona

On Saturday, the news Liverpool fans had long been dreading and Barcelona fans had been dreaming of was finally announced. Philippe Coutinho was officially made a Barcelona player, becoming the third most expensive player in the world - behind fellow countryman Neymar and Kylian Mbappe at €142million.

From the transfer request Coutinho handed in the summer to the personalised Nike …
Learning From Mistakes - Why Klopp's Rotation Has Been Vindicated

Learning From Mistakes - Why Klopp's Rotation Has Been Vindicated

An emphatic statement saw Liverpool return to the top four at the Vitality Stadium on Sunday, and with it came some satisfaction for Jürgen Klopp, in the face of criticism for a maligned “rotation policy”. The sentimentality that clouded fans’ perception of the 1-1 draw against Everton and the subsequent misfiring at Anfield a few days later against West Bromwich Albion lead many to bemoan Klopp’s decision to “over-rotate” – disregarding the importance of games in some sort of sheer …
Reasons to be Cheerful - West Ham 1 Liverpool 4

Reasons to be Cheerful - West Ham 1 Liverpool 4

Well, didn’t that feel better? Following the nightmare that was Wembley, the Reds/the Shocking Oranges returned to the capital and tore apart a side who were asking to be beaten into submission. True, things could have been different if Andre Ayew successfully dinked a fairly simple chance past Simon Mignolet, but once Mo slotted past Joe Hart there was only one outcome. And yet, we did let them back in. We often do. Joe Gomez could have done better with …
FSG - Learning From Past Mistakes?

FSG - Learning From Past Mistakes?

Things have changed a lot in Liverpool football club and in football in general since Fenway Sports Group acquired the Reds back in 2010. FSG themselves have evolved as owners after trying several different approaches in managing the organization within the club with questionable success. It is still too early to rate this summer's deals (or the lack of them). Some supporters are cautiously optimistic, for others failing to sing a starting caliber centre-back is inexcusable. LFC went after top …
Losing Close-To-World-Class Coutinho Would Be Unbearable

Losing Close-To-World-Class Coutinho Would Be Unbearable

With the great players, you can see the moment at which they are about to become genuinely world-class. With Steven Gerrard, it was 2004/05, when he matured from being one of Europe’s best young midfielders to one of the finest players on the entire planet. Luis Suarez did it in 2013/14 - it should never forgotten how brilliant he was the previous year, too - when his levels of genius were on a par with any player we have ever …
