Candidates for Liverpool’s MOTM vs Watford

Candidates for Liverpool’s MOTM vs Watford

Liverpool were denied an opening day victory as Miguel Britos's late header shared the spoils for Watford at Vicarage Road. Much of the pre-match talk was dominated by the headlines of Philippe Coutinho, who had handed in a transfer request the Friday before the game. The general consensus was that the Reds had to put the stories regarding the Brazilian to one side as they looked to open their Premier League season with a win at Marco Silva's Watford. It …
Assessing Liverpool’s Attack For The Upcoming Season

Assessing Liverpool’s Attack For The Upcoming Season

In many respects, Liverpool were well equipped in the attacking department last season. Philippe Coutinho on the left wing, Sadio Mane on the right and Roberto Firmino through the middle, The Reds caused teams havoc on the counter-attacking. Divock Origi and Daniel Sturridge provided Jurgen Klopp with some rotational options, particularly in the closing stages of the season in which Sturridge came back from the injury table to help secure a top-four finish and return to the Champions League. However, …
Will This Be Liverpool's Best Attack Since The 1980s?

Will This Be Liverpool's Best Attack Since The 1980s?

The opening 45 minutes of Saturday’s Premier League Asia Trophy final win over Leicester City were unbelievable. There was a frightening pace to the game, especially compared to the usual slow speed of a pre-season friendly, and Liverpool looked irrepressible for the most part. Jurgen Klopp’s attack-minded lineup saw the quintet of Adam Lallana, Philippe Coutinho, Mohamed Salah, Roberto Firmino and Divock Origi all start, and some of the football was exceptional. The creativity, confidence and interchanging that the attacking …
Why Is Andrew Robertson Already Being Written Off?

Why Is Andrew Robertson Already Being Written Off?

In a summer full of possible high-profile signings at Liverpool, the next likely incoming is Hull City’s Andrew Robertson. The young left-back is being hotly-tipped to seal a move to the Reds at some point in the near future, as Jurgen Klopp continues to fine-tune his squad ahead of next season. If there has been a certain level of hysteria surrounding potential deals for Virgil van Dijk, Naby Keita and other less plausible options this summer, as well as the …

Can Coutinho start alongside Lallana In Midfield?

Can Coutinho start alongside Lallana In Midfield?

Liverpool's signing of Mohamed Salah, and Coutinho's success in a no.8 position at the end of the 2016-17 season is widely expected to herald Coutinho's move to the midfield permanently. However, for the coming season, providing Liverpool stick with a 4-3-3, let alone use the 4-4-2 diamond that featured against West Ham and Middlesborough in the penultimate and ultimate games of the season, it seems hard to accommodate for both Coutinho and Adam Lallana in midfield. Whilst Lallana and Coutinho …
Why Lallana should still be lining up in Liverpool's midfield next season

Why Lallana should still be lining up in Liverpool's midfield next season

With the imminent signing of Mo Salah it looks increasingly certain that Philippe Coutinho will be moved back into midfield next season to add some much needed creativity from deeper areas. The Reds found it hard to break down teams who played with a low block last season, therefore, having someone like Coutinho on the ball more often in central areas, dictating the play can only have a positive impact on the team. However, due to this change many fans …
Time For Firmino To Break The Curse Of Liverpool’s No.9 Shirt

Time For Firmino To Break The Curse Of Liverpool’s No.9 Shirt

There are a few iconic shirt numbers that you associate with Liverpool Football Club, with both No. 7 and No. 9 very much the standouts. James Milner currently occupies the former once worn majestically by Kenny Dalglish and Luis Suarez, much to the dismay of many who want a more glamorous player donning it, but the latter has been vacant for a year. That is until this week, when it was confirmed that Roberto Firmino would take the honour, with the …

Scouting Andy Robertson - Hull's Marauding Fullback

With a vast amount of commotion and furore going on, you’d be forgiven for thinking the transfer window lasted all of two weeks. But, in fact, it does last substantially longer than the eleven days it’s been open in England thus far, and as such, deals will likely materialise over the coming month from virtually out of nowhere. One of those deals will likely involve a left-back, especially if the recent reports from The Liverpool Echo, Melissa Reddy and Paul …
How Will Mohamed Salah Fare at Liverpool?

How Will Mohamed Salah Fare at Liverpool?

In the most recent edition of the Gags Tandon Show, Gabriele Marcotti, from both ESPN and The Times, featured as the guest: profiling Mohamed Salah and discussing potential concerns that Liverpool fans may have. For many Liverpool fans, their main concern is why Mohamed Salah, a player that could not establish himself at Chelsea is now one of Liverpool's primary targets, and, by extension, is he of the quality Liverpool need to improve in order to build towards those Premier …
