Do Liverpool need a new striker?

Do Liverpool need a new striker?

The 2016/17 season was, broadly speaking, a successful one. Attaining Champions League football was the bare minimum for a 'successful season', but under Klopp's leadership, the team did so. In the process, Liverpool scored 78 goals in the league, at an average of just over two per game. Coutinho and Mané both scored 13 in the league, whilst Roberto Firmino contributed with 11. Whilst it is a positive that the goalscoring burden is shared across the forward line, what Liverpool …
Second-Season Masterclass From Magic Mane?

Second-Season Masterclass From Magic Mane?

Some players take a while to adjust at a club of Liverpool’s stature, with the enormous pressure on them every minute of every day something they cannot cope with. For Sadio Mane, however, his Reds career could barely have got off to a better start. Having arrived in relatively low-key circumstances last summer, with the 25-year-old labelled as “just another Southampton player”, some exciting pre-season performances gradually saw him gain admirers. Then, on his official Liverpool debut, Mane decided to …
New Deal For Emre Can Is Just As Important As A New Signing

New Deal For Emre Can Is Just As Important As A New Signing

Amid all the chaos of the transfer window it’s easy to forget Emre Can’s current contract predicament. All the saga over potential deals for Virgil van Dijk and Mohamed Salah have taken the headlines but the German remains at the forefront of Liverpool fans’ minds. Playing a crucial role in seeing Liverpool over the line and into the top four this season, the lack of movement over his contract situation is becoming increasingly worrying. Joining from Bayern Leverkusen in 2014 …

Title Obsession Is Clouding Liverpool Supporters’ Judgement Of 2016/17

Title Obsession Is Clouding Liverpool Supporters’ Judgement Of 2016/17

Few sets of supporters crave something as much as Liverpool fans crave a league title. It really is a drug.  For 27 years, we have waited and waited for the curse to end, but unlike most footballing records, this one seems destined to last forever.  We have had to watch Man United dominate the English game for two decades, while Chelsea, Arsenal and Man City have also notched up nine league titles between them. Even Blackburn and Leicester have had …
No Mane - Can We Cope?

No Mane - Can We Cope?

Liverpool have enjoyed an impressive season so far and Sadio Mane has been at the heart of it. Few could have envisioned the magnitude of his impact when he completed a £30million summer switch from Southampton. All the questions that were initially raised about the investment have been well and truly answered, with the forward slotting in perfectly to Klopp’s side. Featuring in all but one of Liverpool’s 20 Premier League games, Mane has registered nine goals and five assists …
How Gerrard Made Me a Liverpool Fan

How Gerrard Made Me a Liverpool Fan

This article is going to be a lot different than what I normally write up or tweet. It’s not going to be an analysis, it’s not going to be a tactical discussion, it’s not going to be a player profile, and it’s not going to be an opinionated piece that gets people to churn their thoughts. In light of Steven Gerrard’s retirement from football as a professional player, I felt it was only right to honour the incredible journey of …

Six of the Best, or Six Feet Under? Liverpool's Upcoming Fixtures

Six of the Best, or Six Feet Under? Liverpool's Upcoming Fixtures

I honestly believe I say this to myself almost every week... but I think we have a really big 6 games coming up. It’s all very tight at the top of the Premier League at the moment, and as Liverpool continue to flatten their inferior opposition with a goal-fuelled fly swat, we’re keeping ourselves very much in the mix. Only two points from the top after Man City were beautifully beaten by the brilliant, baby-faced assassins at White Hart Lane. …
Time for a winning mentality to return at Liverpool

Time for a winning mentality to return at Liverpool

When you look at Liverpool’s most successful teams of the 21st century, they all had one thing in common: a winning mentality. They often never knew when they were beaten, and they would overcome moments of adversity thanks to sheer quality and an outstanding team spirit. Both Gerard Houllier’s treble-winning side and Rafa Benitez’s team of the late 2000s had it in abundance, even if a Premier League title did elude both. They became genuine forces in Europe, winning the …
