Why Liverpool Can Win The Premier League

Why Liverpool Can Win The Premier League

Liverpool go into this Premier League season off the back of another good summer, looking to build on a really big improvement in the last twelve months and possibly challenge for the Premier League title. So, based on Liverpool’s summer window, the relative strength of the other teams around us, and of course, Jürgen Klopp, can Liverpool win the Premier League title? Yes, and here’s why. Hit the Ground Running The first thing to note is what Liverpool need to …
Dominic Solanke: A versatile squad player from the off?

Dominic Solanke: A versatile squad player from the off?

Mohamed Salah has already signed, and Virgil van Dijk and Naby Keita continue to dominate Liverpool-related transfer news, so Dominic Solanke's arrival on Merseyside has almost gone under the radar. The 19-year-old has now officially joined from Chelsea, after a superb summer that saw him win the U20 World Cup with England and be named the tournament's best player. A player full of potential who was never going to be given a chance at Stamford Bridge, Solanke could be a …
The Seven Year Itch | FSG - A Review

The Seven Year Itch | FSG - A Review

In October of 2010, Fenway Sports Group purchased Liverpool FC for £300 million. In his first statement as owner, John Henry claimed,
'We're here to win and we'll do whatever is necessary.'
Fast-forward almost seven years later, and fans are still divided as to whether FSG have been good owners for the club, and whether the club has progressed, regressed, or simply remained stationary for this period. Under FSG, Liverpool FC have had four managers: Roy Hodgson (sacked January 2011), Kenny …
Liverpool FC Fixtures Analysis 2017/18

Liverpool FC Fixtures Analysis 2017/18

So, with the fixtures out for the 2017/18 season, the initial reaction from Liverpool fans would have been a quick glance to see who we play on the opening day, working out when we play Man United and Everton, and other than that, probably just a bit of a shrug. It’s a reasonably uninspiring fixture list, with no incredibly nice runs but no horrendous patches either. There are, of course, some headline moments: Arsenal and Man City back to back …
The Strange Case of Virgil van Dijk

The Strange Case of Virgil van Dijk

On 7th June, 2017, Liverpool Football Club issued the following short statement:

Read it carefully…it talks of regret …
Just How Attractive Is Jürgen Klopp?

Just How Attractive Is Jürgen Klopp?

It's been an odd couple of days for those of us obsessed with the state of affairs at Liverpool Football Club. For one cohort, the aftermath of Manchester United's Europa League victory was the perfect opportunity for the kind of moaning and masochistic self-flagellation that seems to be de rigeur amongst them. They truly seem to hate themselves and the rest of the world, this lot. It was all over now, you see. The Mancs would beat us to all the …
How To Survive The Liverpool FC Transfer Season

How To Survive The Liverpool FC Transfer Season

Jürgen Klopp Looking To Get Business Done Early screamed one newspaper headline. Klopp Strikes Pessimistic Note On Early Signings, squawked another. Welcome, officially, to Silly Season at it's most histrionic, idiotic and clueless. Between now and the close of the summer transfer window, you will be exposed to such a barrage of contradictory, attention-seeking lunacy, that you would be wise to have a plan for the retention of your mental health - something into which you can completely invest yourself …
Magic Coutinho Impresses Origi

Magic Coutinho Impresses Origi

As I sit down to write this, there are actual people of intelligence preparing to watch David Moyes' Sunderland take on Arsenal in the hope that the Mackems will eke out some kind of result. This is the kind of entirely avoidable madness that leads to dark bouts of depression. To compound the lunacy, the same people will probably have one eye on Everton's attempts against the Gunners on the final day. If anything, expecting an Evertonian gift is the …
Progress At Liverpool FC Regardless Of Final Fixture

Progress At Liverpool FC Regardless Of Final Fixture

Let's get something absolutely clear from the off, friends - whether Liverpool beat Middlesborough and secure a Champions League play-off or not, there has been obvious, demonstrable progress under Jürgen Klopp this season. This really shouldn't need saying, but the fickle and pugnacious nature of many of our fans makes it important to nail your colours to the mast on any areas of potential conflict. Heaven forbid that one might not be comically extreme on every position. It seems to be de rigeur …
