Why Isn't Left-Back a Bigger Priority for Liverpool?

Why Isn't Left-Back a Bigger Priority for Liverpool?

The most interesting thing about the transfer window so far is how little thought and effort is being put into the full-back areas at Liverpool. Last summer, a BBC poll indicated that only 7% of Liverpool fans were happy with the left-back situation, which was comfortably the unhappiest any fans were about any position in the entire division. Whilst that poll is hardly conclusive, it’s a damning indictment of Alberto Moreno, who is expected to move on this summer, which …
Liverpool's Transfer Window: As One Door Opens...

Liverpool's Transfer Window: As One Door Opens...

Much of the focus of the summer – which is still only weeks old, it should be said – for fans of any club, is the possibility and speculation of the transfer window. We’re all anxious to see who we can get through the door and onto the pitch for next season’s inevitable League and Champions League double, but it’s also worth remembering that there are two elements to all this. While incoming signings are by far the more exciting, …
Why Liverpool Should Renew Their Interest in Ben Chilwell

Why Liverpool Should Renew Their Interest in Ben Chilwell

Left-back has been a position that Liverpool have struggled with over the past couple of seasons and although James Milner has done an admirable job there this season the Reds are in desperate need of a specialist left-back. There was outrage amongst much of the fan base when it became clear Milner would be Liverpool's first choice going into last season with Alberto Moreno his deputy. Personally I'm a big fan of Milner and think he is much better at …

Profiling Liverpool's Squad Depth Ahead of Next Season

After Liverpool secured qualification into the Champions league for next season, attention turned to the summer transfer window and who the Reds would be signing to both improve and bolster their squad heading into next season. One of Liverpool’s main weaknesses this season has been their lack of squad depth, which has been highlighted following injuries to key players such as Coutinho, Mane and Lallana. When the Reds have everyone fit they are as good as any team in the …
Emre Can: Should Liverpool Let Go?

Emre Can: Should Liverpool Let Go?

Excitement... despair… euphoria. The LFC Twitter rumour-mill has roared to life since the close of the Premier League season. Lost in the up, down and up again speculation surrounding Mo Salah and Virgil Van Dijk has been a report from the Daily Star that Juventus are after one of Liverpool's handsomest. Supposed quotes from “people close to Can" appeared on Twitter saying that the player was “ready to cash in” with a move to Turin. A FICKLE HISTORY In the …
Will Reds Come Up Short with Phil In Midfield?

Will Reds Come Up Short with Phil In Midfield?

The run-in to the 2016/17 season gave Liverpool fans a tantalizing view of what’s to come with Phil Coutinho’s move into a central midfield position, picking the ball up from the back and ending the careers of several would-be tacklers on his way forward. With 3 goals to go with an assist in the last two games there is a lot for Reds supporters to be excited about. Coutinho's West Ham highlights: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=l8On5xZihFg Quotes from Klopp suggest that Phil will …
Dejan Lovren: Is He Really THAT Bad?

Dejan Lovren: Is He Really THAT Bad?

Occasionally, a player comes along that it’s cool to hate. They don’t appear at all fashionable, their performances are torn to shreds left, right and centre and they seemingly have to perform to miraculous levels to receive any praise in the slightest. There’s always at least one Liverpool player who fits the bill perfectly, from Jordan Henderson in his younger days, James Milner during a dip in the second-half of 2016/17, all the way back to John Arne Riise, who …
Liverpool Must Build on Season of Progress

Liverpool Must Build on Season of Progress

It's been a season of progress at Liverpool Football Club. Having ended the 2015/16 campaign in a disappointing 8th place, the consensus was that Jurgen Klopp had done a good job at recycling such a limited squad inherited by his predecessor, Brendan Rodgers - leading Liverpool to both the League Cup & Europa League final respectively in the space of seven months. The real challenge for Klopp was to transform a distinctly unimpressive side into top 4, and possibly, title …
Analysing Liverpool's Season Player By Player

Analysing Liverpool's Season Player By Player

And breathe... A confident and composed 3-0 victory at home to Middlesbrough confirmed Liverpool's spot in the top-four. A clear sign of progression for Jurgen Klopp's first full season in charge at the club, and a platform from which summer transfer dealings will likely stem. With the season now drawn to a close, it's time to take a look at Liverpool's players and assess their campaigns as a whole. Goalkeepers Simon Mignolet – 7 Mignolet has gone from strength to …
How The Perfect Liverpool Squad Should Look Next Season

How The Perfect Liverpool Squad Should Look Next Season

Another season has been and gone, but unlike so many at Liverpool since they decided to stop winning everything, 2016/17 has left us with a feeling of great warmth. The Reds’ title challenge may have fizzled out after a very promising first four months, but sealing Champions League qualification has to be seen as a huge positive. It is very easy for Liverpool fans to have a sense of entitlement, given the club’s incredible history both domestically and in Europe, …
