Why The Fume Over Liverpool's Summer?

Why The Fume Over Liverpool's Summer?

I write these words on 14th June - World Cup day. It would be too much to suggest that you’ve noticed my absence from this website but, trust me, I haven’t stroked a keyboard for a fortnight. There are many reasons for this - work has been busy, every weekend has been booked up and my new novel is almost ready for publication, but there’s a more dominant reason. I’ve had nothing to say. Seriously, there isn’t much to get …
Hakim Ziyech Would be the Perfect Response to the Fekir Transfer Saga

Hakim Ziyech Would be the Perfect Response to the Fekir Transfer Saga

If Liverpool’s pursuit of Fabinho was an old-school signing, bereft of a long drawn out process with a strangely anticlimactic moment at the end, Fekir was a good old-fashioned transfer saga. From rumour to confirmation in under two hours, Michael Edwards wrapped up a deal for the defensive midfielder without any complications. The pursuit of Fekir however, was anything but. Liverpool appeared to have a deal for £49million, rising to approximately £53m wrapped up, with the Lyon attacker pictured doing …
Liverpool FC - Getting Smarter

Liverpool FC - Getting Smarter

Liverpool football club is not at the top of the transfer food chain. It's an unpleasant fact but we need to accept it. There are clubs that are richer, stronger and can offer guarantees that LFC just can't. So it's natural that some players will use the famous red jersey as a stepping stone to get to supposedly better clubs. This has been happening for years. Even Steven Gerrard considered it at on point. Just in the past 10 years, …
Trust Michael Edwards - He's Smarter Than Us

Trust Michael Edwards - He's Smarter Than Us

It’s been a very strange and very fraught weekend for Liverpool fans. The timeline is sketchy, details are even sketchier but on Thursday night, it was announced that Liverpool had wrapped up a deal with Nabil Fekir. On Friday morning, Lyon denounced that, and rumours flooded that Fekir had failed his medical. Those rumours were largely debunked, and speculation ran rampant but the announcement of Fekir never came, until finally on Saturday night, Lyon announced that the deal was dead. …
Scouting Fabinho: Liverpool's New Anchor

Scouting Fabinho: Liverpool's New Anchor

Monday Night – UK time: Liverpool fans still reel from their Champions League final loss, yet they are motivated in their club’s resolve to use it as the platform for progress; a bump on the road to something special. Nobody quite knew just how quickly the Reds would get moving on that road, though. As photos emerged of their shiny new Brazilian midfielder, standing clad in that famous Red kit, every Liverpool fan in the world probably had the same …
So, you want to sell Loris Karius?

So, you want to sell Loris Karius?

There are two major reactions from Saturday night’s painful Champions League final loss to Real Madrid. 1 - Ramos’ da sells Avon 2 - Everything else is Karius’ fault Liverpool can’t do anything about the former, but the latter they are in full control of. If decisions were made via Twitter poll, Loris Karius would be gone, bagged, tagged and sold to the highest bidder by end of day on Sunday. Let’s say that you got your wish. Karius is …
Lascelles or Tarkowski: Who's the Better Fit?

Lascelles or Tarkowski: Who's the Better Fit?

The wheels of Liverpool’s busy summer have already begun spinning. Even as they head to a Champions League final, rumours have been rife regarding those who will arrive in the summer: The Independent’s Miguel Delaney reported that Michael Edwards has been tasked with finding a centre-half partner for Liverpool’s perceived most important signing in recent memory, Virgil van Dijk. The first two names out of the block share a nationality, and were both unfortunate to not make Gareth Southgate’s twenty-three-man …
Don't you dare doubt Dom Solanke

Don't you dare doubt Dom Solanke

Twenty-year-old Dom Solanke was signed last summer in a heist from Chelsea. The forward subsequently went on to take the U20 World Cup by storm, taking home the Golden Ball for the tournament’s most outstanding player. A PRESEASON OF PROMISE After showing flashes throughout Liverpool’s preseason schedule, there was a serious buzz around Solanke as it looked like the Reds had pulled one over on the Plastics once again. Daniel Sturridge had been brought in from Chelsea four years earlier …
Liverpool Refuse To Do It The Easy Way

Liverpool Refuse To Do It The Easy Way

Killer whales. Orcas. The most dominant force in the ocean. They could feed on tuna, penguins, small children, anything really. But what really seems to get an orca going is a nice, fat sea lion. Now, your average orca tries to catch a sea lion out in the open water when they're feeding or transiting between sunning themselves and finding a mate. We can all relate. But, there's a group of killer whales in Patagonia that prefer a little more …
Do Liverpool Still Need to Replace Phil Coutinho?

Do Liverpool Still Need to Replace Phil Coutinho?

Euphoria, that’s the feeling washing over most of the Liverpool supporter-sphere at the moment. Their front three are reaching meteoric heights, and their devastating influence on games has become a staple of both the Premier League and Champions League. Teams now fear Liverpool, not simply because of the goalscoring prowess, but also the knowledge that it is now harder to breach what used to be a shaky back-line. Liverpool bought the most expensive defender in world football to help fix …
