Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain Would Be A Shrewd Piece of Business

Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain Would Be A Shrewd Piece of Business

With Arsenal stalling on a new deal for Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, Liverpool are among a number of clubs linked with a summer move. That’s caused somewhat of a stir from the fan-base, with the reaction varying from apprehension to excitement. Joining Southampton at the age of seven, Chamberlain propelled himself into the first-team picture in 2010, making his debut at the age of 16. An impressive campaign in which he scored nine times while assisting the same number in 34 games …
Why a Deal for Oxlade-Chamberlain Doesn't Add Up

Why a Deal for Oxlade-Chamberlain Doesn't Add Up

The link between Liverpool and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain is one that has stuck around, despite Jürgen Klopp himself denying it, and it’s one that has created a lot of debate amongst Liverpool supporters. Unlike Salah, Van Dijk or Lacazette, who all were almost universally hyped up as soon as the link was made, reactions to the Ox have varied from delight, to apprehension, to disbelief, and even confusion. Certainly it’s a signing that is not straightforwardly good or bad and reaction …
Will Fixtures Become the Undoing of Liverpool's Squad?

Will Fixtures Become the Undoing of Liverpool's Squad?

This season's provisional Premier League fixture list has just been announced, but what does the fixture list mean for Liverpool in the coming season - especially when considering last season, in which the team struggled with a challenging fixture list: without even accounting for the upcoming Champions League fixtures that will only add further strain to the squad. In order to understand some of the challenges that may lie ahead, it makes sense to look instead at the challenges and …
Which Formation Should Liverpool Play Next Season?

Which Formation Should Liverpool Play Next Season?

With the dust finally settling on the 2016/17 season, it was a successful season for Liverpool, finishing in 4th place and therefore qualifying for the Champions League. The Reds thus achieved their preliminary pre-season objective of Champions League qualification, which could be classed as a good season for the Reds. However, a problem that threatened to completely derail Jurgen Klopp's side throughout the season was tactical issues. Many cited this as a potential reason for Liverpool failing to sustain their …
Jordan Henderson Remains A Key Player - If Fit

Jordan Henderson Remains A Key Player - If Fit

Football supporters have incredibly short memories. That’s not a needless dig in the slightest, it’s just a fact. We’re all guilty of it. A few poor performances from a player, or a long-term absence from the team, and suddenly their previous excellence is consigned to history. In the space of three or four months, Jordan Henderson has gone from being lauded by the masses for his performances in a new deep-lying midfield role, to being cast aside and not valued …

Who is Sergej Milinkovic-Savic? Scouting Lazio's Powerhouse

Amidst rising tensions regarding Liverpool’s transfer business, and the multitudes of social media seething in contempt over their American overlords, people are desperate for rumours, for some sort semblance of positivity regarding Liverpool’s summer (one that hasn’t even properly begun yet.) So, here’s to a little bit of positivity. One of the chief rumours coming out of the successful 2016/17 season was the Reds’ pursuit of the rising star Naby Keita, who was equally successful with Bundesliga newboys RB Leipzig. …

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 …
FSG: Shape Up or Ship Out

FSG: Shape Up or Ship Out

It's happened again... it's happened agai-ai-ain... Tottenham Hotspur, it's happened again!
So goes the now famous Arsenal song that was aimed at Spurs fans every season for two decades, when the day arrived each year, and it was confirmed that, yet again, their North London rivals wouldn't finish above them in the Premier League - what became known as St. Totteringham's Day. Clearly, that song was rendered irrelevant the season just gone when Spurs finished some eleven points …
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 …
Van Dijk and the Consequences of High Wages

Van Dijk and the Consequences of High Wages

So the word on the street is that Liverpool will have to offer, and are offering, £200k a week in order to secure the signature of Southampton central-defender Virgil Van Dijk. And if it’s true, and if the club can get the deal over the line, neither of which are 100% certain just yet, then that will be a massive statement of intent from FSG. But whilst there are a vast number of reasons to be excited about this deal, …
