Is Mohamed Salah's start to the season being underplayed?

Is Mohamed Salah's start to the season being underplayed?

When Liverpool signed Mohamed Salah for £36.9m on 22nd June 2017 it wasn’t to the kind of fanfare one would expect for a club record signing. Sure, many Liverpool supporters were made up with the transfer, but it didn’t feel huge in its magnitude. It didn’t reverberate around the league. Certainly when you consider what was to follow. By the end of the transfer window, Mo Salah would prove to be only the 10th most expensive signing of the summer. …

Mourinho's Double-Decker Denies the Reds - Liverpool 0 - 0 Manchester United

The Details Date: 14/10/2017 Venue: Anfield, Liverpool Background This game, eh? This bloody game. Especially when it's the early kick-off on a Saturday, this bloody game. The remaining happiness levels of our weekend largely depended on the following ninety minutes of football. You could argue it shouldn't, but it does. United arrive at Anfield seven points ahead of Liverpool and second in the league, just trailing City on goal difference. Liverpool have been off the boil, somewhat, since Arsenal were …

Beating United Is Everything For A Southern Liverpool Fan

Beating United Is Everything For A Southern Liverpool Fan

I’ll warn you, this is a bit of a sob story and I am absolutely looking for sympathy. As a “southern softie”, what more do you expect? When it comes to being a Liverpool supporter from the south of England, I can assure you that the hour or so after losing to Man United is one of the most hideous as a Red. I’m sure it’s pretty grim for you too, wherever you are in the world, but I’m feeling …
The Klopp Project (Part 3): Challenging for the title

The Klopp Project (Part 3): Challenging for the title

In my previous pieces, you can also read part 1 and part 2, I discussed the challenges facing Jurgen Klopp, or indeed any Liverpool manager, in landing the league title. Namely, the issue of finances and the sensible "restrictions" FSG pose on spending money; also, the issues that Klopp's tactical approach has had in overcoming the proverbial parked bus. This series is a look at what it takes to win a title so I will look at various options available …
Fantasy Premier League Insight: GW7 - Strikers Paradise

Fantasy Premier League Insight: GW7 - Strikers Paradise

When was the last time we had 5 dominating strikers in #FPL  (Kane, Aguero, Lukaku, Lacazette, Morata) While the holy trinity of Kane, Aguero and Lukaku were absolute MUST haves going into GW6, were you really surprised when #FPL threw another curve ball with Morata and Lacazette stepping up with 17 and 13 points respectively? I honestly can't think of another season where we've had this many strikers performing well at the same time; it definitely has the feel of …

Daniel Sturridge: Liverpool’s Potentially World-Class Wildcard

Daniel Sturridge: Liverpool’s Potentially World-Class Wildcard

There were a couple of moments at the end of last season that seemed to save Daniel Sturridge’s Liverpool career. By the time the crucial trip to West Ham rolled around on May 14th, the general consensus was that Sturridge’s continued fitness woes had left him surplus to requirements, with a move elsewhere likely this summer. Then the vital 4-0 win at the London Stadium happened. Moment number one for Sturridge was, unsurprisingly, his expertly-taken goal that gave Liverpool a …
Do Liverpool need a new striker?

Do Liverpool need a new striker?

The 2016/17 season was, broadly speaking, a successful one. Attaining Champions League football was the bare minimum for a 'successful season', but under Klopp's leadership, the team did so. In the process, Liverpool scored 78 goals in the league, at an average of just over two per game. Coutinho and Mané both scored 13 in the league, whilst Roberto Firmino contributed with 11. Whilst it is a positive that the goalscoring burden is shared across the forward line, what Liverpool …
