Trent Alexander-Arnold - Local Hero

Trent Alexander-Arnold - Local Hero

I know it shouldn’t be important, but it is. I know it should just be about the team, but this isn’t. I know that it shouldn’t matter who scores for Liverpool, but on this occasion it means the world. When Trent Alexander-Arnold wheeled away in celebration in Germany this week, and tried gamely to calm his mind after his magnificent achievement, he knew that any attempt at casualness and insouciance would be an act of folly. He had just done …
Transfer Time: A Brief Cautionary Tale

Transfer Time: A Brief Cautionary Tale

It's really far more than anyone should be expected to bear, you know. There is no way to manoeuvre the minefield that is transfer speculation and retain one's mental equilibrium. I like to think I'm a comparatively calm man, having had my stoicism tested by the slings and arrows over the years, but there's something about the unique cocktail of Liverpool's uncertain fate, the huge investment we have all placed in the importance of Champions League football and the attendant …
Private Jets, Insomnia And Donuts - A Normal Week At Anfield

Private Jets, Insomnia And Donuts - A Normal Week At Anfield

Here is the latest in a sequence of ways in which writing a daily football column knocks your perspective into a cocked hat. Number 73: Comparing your reality to that of Roberto Firmino. Having missed a day from both my jobs for what the Twitter kids call "reasons," your columnist was left incapacitated enough that he was unable to drive his own beloved mode of transportation to work this morning. It seems as though my employers were anxious to avoid being …
Can Klopp And Liverpool Stay Cool?

Can Klopp And Liverpool Stay Cool?

You know when you've arranged with family or friends that, owing to financial circumstances, you are definitely NOT doing the present thing this Christmas/birthday/whatever? And you know the way that seems like absolutely the correct call at the time and you're definitely okay with it? And do you also know that pang of ludicrous and illogical disappointment when the day arrives and you are indeed present-free? That is very much the feeling that gnawed at Latest News on the drive to work …
Danny Ings bridges football and reality gap

Danny Ings bridges football and reality gap

There has always been the resounding criticism towards the business of football that footballers are out tune with reality with fancy sports cars, ballooned wages and the vast array of public affection (and hatred) clouding players’ minds. What is often seen with this privilege that footballers enjoy is, exaggerated egos, societal attitudes that places themselves above anyone and a greed that is usually unparalleled. Faced with this reality, fans are usually out of touch with their footballer counterparts and this …
Chinese Investment - An opportunity too good to miss for LFC?

Chinese Investment - An opportunity too good to miss for LFC?

Back in December of 2015, Manchester City announced that CFC, a Chinese group had purchased a 13% stake in MCFC for £265m. This marked the point at which Manchester City had truly become a rival to Manchester United in financial terms. How is this relevant to Liverpool? We need only cast our minds back to the end of the 1980s, where following two decades of domestic domination and European success, Liverpool's owners and the board decided against investing heavily in …
The Administration of Fenway Sports Group

The Administration of Fenway Sports Group

Fenway Sports Group has been constantly lambasted since the start of their regime as owners of Liverpool Football Club, and while most of those have been rightly justified, some of the pillory has been unwarranted. Six years ago, FSG bought Liverpool Football Club for give or take £200M, and by some, it was considered a bargain for a club this size. However, when the debt the club and its former owners had accumulated under their tenure are considered, it doesn’t …
Assessing Liverpool's Academy

Assessing Liverpool's Academy

As a new season is fast approaching, our fan base will once again, witness a few players from our academy who will make appearances during the preseason or better, graduate and move on to Melwood. While Toni Gomes is a name that’s been floating around recently do to a potential professional contract being awarded, there’s plenty more names to look forward to. Kirkby is overflowing with bright, young players who have the potential to be something.  Many players over the …
Why Markovic Could be Klopp's Wildcard

Why Markovic Could be Klopp's Wildcard

When Lazar Markovic signed for Liverpool in the Summer of 2014 it was seen as a coup. This was one of Europe's most exciting footballers who was coming off the back of a really impressive season with Portuguese giants Benfica.  He joined the Reds despite reported interest from Chelsea and Juventus. The Primeira Liga is a bit of a litmus test for players. More often than not players who do well in Portugal go on to impress in Europe. His …
Victory in Defeat for Liverpool

Victory in Defeat for Liverpool

Our second half capitulation against Sevilla in Basel was very painful viewing. Almost 24 hours on from the loss and our heads still replaying the Sturridge worldy and how different it could have been if not for that offside interaction and penalty claim. Then Moreno’s inability to make a tackle and thus, breath-taking destruction of our European dream. We all woke up with that feeling of complete and utter loss for the second time this year. Some have still not …
