Franchise Tag: NFL's rule, Football's Dream?

As an American Red, I don't see a lot of Liverpool news, gossip and talk through popular sports media here in the U.S. I usually seek it out myself, leading me to major UK sports media like Sky, and the meatier local and fan-run sites and YouTube channels like RedmenTV and Anfield Index. While reading through the Coutinho transfer news back in January, I came across a piece on the Sunday Supplement panel on Sky Sports, where Henry Winter described …
Liverpool Football Club has a new identity

Liverpool Football Club has a new identity

Fast, high energy, counter-attacking football - Liverpool Football Club has a new identity. When Jurgen Klopp was appointed manager back in October 2015, Liverpool Football Club was a team that lacked any sort of identity, yes we were a historic club who once use to grace & conquer Europe on a regular basis but ask any supporter what a Liverpool side looked liked following Rodgers' dismissal and they'd find it hard to tell you. They might point you in the …
Where Does Salah Rank Among Europe's Best?

Where Does Salah Rank Among Europe's Best?

The nature of the conversation around Mo Salah has indeed shifted in recent weeks, culminating in a significant shift following Liverpool’s 5-0 win over Watford. Salah was of course, entirely unplayable on Saturday, scoring four and assisting Bobby Firmino’s goal, but that performance was only the cherry on top of what has been a truly elite season for Salah. His 28 goals make him the top scorer in the top five European leagues, with nobody contributing more than his 37 …
How Andy Robertson compares to his rival left-backs this season

How Andy Robertson compares to his rival left-backs this season

I recently wrote an article discussing whether Liverpool had found themselves a new left-back and compared Andy Robertson's stats to his team-mate and rival for the position Alberto Moreno. Having made some interesting findings I thought it would be a good idea to see how the Scott compares to some of the Premier league's stand-out left-backs this season. If the 24-year-old wants to be the long-term solution then he must develop into one of the Premier league's best full-backs, so …
Liverpool's Pressing Need for a Midfield Controller

Liverpool's Pressing Need for a Midfield Controller

Liverpool’s aura of invincibility was always going to be pierced at some point. Retrospectively, it was almost inevitable that Jose Mourinho and the “anti-football” rhetoric that surrounds his Manchester United side would be the pin that burst Jürgen Klopp’s bubble. Following a dismal exit in the FA Cup at the hands of West Bromwich Albion, the Reds went on a run of five wins and two draws. In that time, they scored 18 times, conceding three. It’s a fair claim …
Ruthlessness Key As Liverpool Head To Old Trafford

Ruthlessness Key As Liverpool Head To Old Trafford

So here we go again, the return of one of the most unbearable fixtures for many Liverpool fans: Man United away. It is a game that we love to win more than just about any other but know all too well how bleak defeat can be. Unfortunately, that has often been the case at Old Trafford lately, with the Reds managing just two wins there since 2004, losing on 12 occasions in that time. That was then and this is …
Jorginho vs Ndidi - Which do Liverpool Need More?

Jorginho vs Ndidi - Which do Liverpool Need More?

With Emre Can’s departure to the exotic shores of Turin imminent, Liverpool have recently been casting an eye towards a new midfielder. The Times’ Paul Joyce recently revealed that Napoli’s Jorginho is a target for Jürgen Klopp to fill his need for a #6 – a deep midfielder to sit at the base of a three or next to Naby Keita in a two. So too has Wilfrid Ndidi been linked with a move to Klopp’s red revolution, leading many …
Immense Salah-Firmino Partnership Continues To Grow At Liverpool

Immense Salah-Firmino Partnership Continues To Grow At Liverpool

Great Liverpool attacking pairings throughout history roll off the tongue. Ian St John and Roger Hunt excelled in the 1960s, John Toshack and Kevin Keegan were the archetypal ‘Little N Large’ combo the following decade and Kenny Dalglish and Ian Rush were perhaps the Reds’ greatest duo-in-tandem. Jumping into the Premier League era, Robbie Fowler and Stan Collymore wreaked havoc for a short time, before Steven Gerrard and Fernando Torres came so close to inspiring Liverpool to glory in 2008/09. …
Elite Salah Can Become a Liverpool Icon

Elite Salah Can Become a Liverpool Icon

In amongst the carnage of the final minutes of Liverpool’s 2-2 draw with Spurs, Mo Salah scored a goal that had the potential to be one of the greatest Anfield moments of the last decade or so. The chaos, controversy and fume surrounding Kane’s two penalties and the disappointment of two points dropped cannot be allowed to take the shine off what was an absolutely extraordinary goal. Salah picks the ball up from a difficult angle, and appeals for handball, …
Reborn Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain Continues To Excel

Reborn Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain Continues To Excel

If ever a day summed up why Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain's decision to trade Arsenal for Liverpool last August was an inspired one, it was Sunday. As the 24-year-old was sat preparing for the Reds’ eagerly-anticipated clash with Man City, his former club were blowing a lead and suffering defeat at Bournemouth, languishing in sixth-place in the Premier League in the process. In a parallel universe, Oxlade-Chamberlain could easily have been lining up at Dean Court in a horribly average Arsenal team …
