Expect More Coaching Than Chequebook from Liverpool in January

Expect More Coaching Than Chequebook from Liverpool in January

January has arrived, which means another transfer window and Liverpool being the subject of multiple links that stretch the imagination. It is click-bait season for certain sections of the media and it serves to feed the frenzy of some fans, as they piece together a Liverpool XI based on players that the tabloids picked out of a hat. It's also the time when many fans hope that their dream of seeing players such as Dejan Lovren, James Milner, Jordan Henderson, Adam Lallana …

The "Marquee" Signing Conundrum

As a Liverpool fan who uses Twitter as a medium to get most news about the club, life has not been great. The sheer agony amongst our fans over the lack of a big-money signing is astounding. These are the same guys who were licking their lips at us having signed Jurgen Klopp in October, and given him a contract until 2022, at the beginning of this month. To put it simply then, they were excited about Klopp without knowing …
Joel Matip - What Will He Bring?

Joel Matip - What Will He Bring?

As of 1st July 2016, Joel Matip was officially a Liverpool player. The Cameroon international will join the reds on a reported 4-year deal after agreeing a pre-contract in January to become a member of Jurgen Klopp’s renaissance. At 6”3 Matip is a real presence in the air, he won an impressive 75% of his aerial duels last season (much higher compared to Sakho 61% and Skrtel 67%, slightly beaten by Lovren with 78%) and all 3 of his goals in …
Jürgen Klopp and the Parallels of his Past

Jürgen Klopp and the Parallels of his Past

Jürgen Klopp is not at Liverpool for a quick fix and there is a probably a high proportion of fans that need to understand that. Klopp is not a Jose Mourinho – a short term, high spend, career manager looking for the next club to add to his CV. That’s not to degrade Mourinho’s career achievements, he’s good at what he does and there are clubs that look for that kind of style. Liverpool however, are a club that have …
FSG Have Failed to Deliver

FSG Have Failed to Deliver

If ever there was a headline to cause debate this is it. No doubt many will read the title of this piece and either strongly agree or disagree without reading the bloody article. In the last few years I have strongly defended FSG and also given them heavy criticism. There are things they have done very well and things they have done very poorly. Let’s begin with the positives. On 15th October 2010, much to all our relief, FSG, then …
Can Liverpool Win The League With Rising Talent v Big Names?

Can Liverpool Win The League With Rising Talent v Big Names?

Antonio Conte. Jose Mourinho. Pep Guardiola. Jurgen Klopp. And maybe Arsene Wenger. This coming season, the Barclays Premier League is filled with world class managers who will have massive war chests at their disposal to sign big names, as they regularly do with the clubs they have formerly worked for. Jurgen Klopp would also have the same backing from the Liverpool owners after witnessing significant progress when he took over, appearing in two cup finals. But would he actually use …
Match Preview | Liverpool vs Stoke City

Match Preview | Liverpool vs Stoke City

Liverpool welcome Stoke City to Anfield on Sunday afternoon, hoping to gain three points to close the gap on the top four. A win would push them above Stoke in the table, and could see them rise to 7th. Jurgen Klopp faced his old club on Thursday night as Liverpool came away with a 1-1 draw against Borussia Dortmund in the first leg of the Europa League quarter finals. The result will be seen as a positive one for the …
Joe Gomez and Danny Ings – The Curse of the ACL

Joe Gomez and Danny Ings – The Curse of the ACL

Ever since Jurgen Klopp’s arrival at Liverpool, everyone at the club has been giddy with the effects of Klopptomania. There was the long build-up to his inevitable appointment, the endless vines of his goal celebrations and then, eventually, the press conference. Far from making excuses about not having the right tools, Klopp went to great lengths to extoll the virtues of the players at his disposal. Then came the shockwaves. Not one, but two, anterior cruciate ligament (ACL to you …
The Power of Youth: Klopp's Transfer Magic

The Power of Youth: Klopp's Transfer Magic

With a clamour and a beaming grin, most Liverpool supporters now have a horizon to look to. Where the dark shroud engulfed the fields of Anfield Road, a descent into limbo embodied by a broken regime, the inverse has now created a sense of real optimism about Liverpool Football Club, for what seems like the first time in a long time. In reality, it was a mere two years ago that a revolution was seemingly tearing through Anfield; its leader …
What Jurgen Klopp Brings to Liverpool FC

What Jurgen Klopp Brings to Liverpool FC

The Jugen Klopp shadow has been cast over Anfield since the 2014/15 season ended. The German left Dortmund having taken them from midtable mediocrity to one of the most efficient and exciting teams to watch within two seasons of taking charge. He toppled the might of Bayern Munich. He cast aside the lingering Bayer Leverkusen side. He surpassed the rich Wolfsburg side. He turned kids into stars. Potential into class. All whilst playing a style of football that left the …
