Loris Karius: Forgotten But Not Gone

Loris Karius: Forgotten But Not Gone

Amid all the summer madness of transfer talk, as well as the constant praise for goalkeepers Simon Mignolet and Danny Ward, Loris Karius is now a player going completely under the radar. Having arrived as a devilishly handsome, highly-rated young German, it was no surprise to see him filling column inches and gaining immediate admirers last summer. He felt like the answer to Liverpool's ongoing goalkeeping issues.  Things didn’t pan out the way the 24-year-old would have hoped for, however, …
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 …
Crucial Summer Ahead for Sheyi Ojo

Crucial Summer Ahead for Sheyi Ojo

Liverpool youngster Sheyi Ojo is set for a defining summer after undergoing a disappointing 2016/17 campaign that saw him fail to establish himself under Jurgen Klopp. Breaking through the ranks in 2015/16, Ojo has since drifted between Liverpool’s Under-23's and the first team setup – though predominantly in terms of training rather than appearances. Despite lots of hype about what he could offer the side, the 19-year-old has struggled to establish a role for himself during Klopp’s first season at …
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 …
Silence at Anfield

Silence at Anfield

It's all gone eerily quiet around Anfield. Not long ago the mood was euphoric; Liverpool had secured Champions League football, and were heading the race to sign Van Dijk. Rather uncharacteristically for Klopp's Liverpool, the news regarding Van Dijk was out in the open, before the player had put pen to paper, or even before Liverpool had submitted a formal offer. After that almighty omnishambles, which played out for the entire football world to see, Liverpool have shut-up shop. In terms of transfer …
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 …
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 …
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 …
Liverpool Shouldn't Give Up On Van Dijk This Summer

Liverpool Shouldn't Give Up On Van Dijk This Summer

Liverpool have made no secret of their attempts to sign Southampton defender Virgil van Dijk this summer, with the Dutchman earmarked as Jurgen Klopp’s primary defensive target. It seemed like it was all heading for a happy ending, too, when reports emerged of him choosing Liverpool over Manchester City and Chelsea. Finally, the club were about to beat their rivals and land their man. Fans rejoiced. FSG were even praised. What a time to be alive, right…? Wrong. With Southampton …
