Expect More Coaching Than Chequebook from Liverpool in January

Expect More Coaching Than Chequebook from Liverpool in January

January has arrived, which means another transfer window and Liverpool being the subject of multiple links that stretch the imagination. It is click-bait season for certain sections of the media and it serves to feed the frenzy of some fans, as they piece together a Liverpool XI based on players that the tabloids picked out of a hat. It's also the time when many fans hope that their dream of seeing players such as Dejan Lovren, James Milner, Jordan Henderson, Adam Lallana …
The

The "Marquee" Signing Conundrum

As a Liverpool fan who uses Twitter as a medium to get most news about the club, life has not been great. The sheer agony amongst our fans over the lack of a big-money signing is astounding. These are the same guys who were licking their lips at us having signed Jurgen Klopp in October, and given him a contract until 2022, at the beginning of this month. To put it simply then, they were excited about Klopp without knowing …
Jürgen Klopp and the Parallels of his Past

Jürgen Klopp and the Parallels of his Past

Jürgen Klopp is not at Liverpool for a quick fix and there is a probably a high proportion of fans that need to understand that. Klopp is not a Jose Mourinho – a short term, high spend, career manager looking for the next club to add to his CV. That’s not to degrade Mourinho’s career achievements, he’s good at what he does and there are clubs that look for that kind of style. Liverpool however, are a club that have …
FSG Have Failed to Deliver

FSG Have Failed to Deliver

If ever there was a headline to cause debate this is it. No doubt many will read the title of this piece and either strongly agree or disagree without reading the bloody article. In the last few years I have strongly defended FSG and also given them heavy criticism. There are things they have done very well and things they have done very poorly. Let’s begin with the positives. On 15th October 2010, much to all our relief, FSG, then …
Can Liverpool really compete for Lewandowski?

Can Liverpool really compete for Lewandowski?

Robert Lewandowski was the top marksman in the Bundesliga again with an incredible 30 league goals in 32 games for Bayern Munich. The 27 year-old striker has his critics in certain quarters but he is a true world class player at the top of his game. There is no doubt Lewandowski is reaching the peak of his powers as his record for club and country illustrates. The lethal centre forward was the top scorer in Euro 2016 qualifying with a …
Can Piotr Zielinski Become Klopp’s Latest Polish Sensation?

Can Piotr Zielinski Become Klopp’s Latest Polish Sensation?

There is something special between Polish players and Jurgen Klopp. Lukas Piszczek, Jakub Błaszczykowski, Robert Lewandowski all have developed into great players under the guidance of the former Dortmund boss and all of them have been relatively unknown figures within the football world before they joined him at Westfalenstadion. With Liverpool now being heavily linked with a  move for Empoli's Piotr Zielinski in the summer, Reds fans will certainly be hoping that Klopp will be able to do his magic and help another Polish player rise …
Wake Me Up When The Season Ends

Wake Me Up When The Season Ends

What a season this has been and I don’t mean for good reasons. The highlight this season has undoubtedly been Jurgen Klopp’s arrival at Anfield, but other than that it has been a season to forget for the Reds. Every time we as fans seem to get a little bit excited, we come crashing down to earth. It’s been the story of the season. A season I, for one, can’t wait to be over. Form If you look in the …
Time To Step Up - Jerome Sinclair

Time To Step Up - Jerome Sinclair

Liverpool just can seem to catch a break lately with injuries. With almost a full compliment of attackers out injured, any hopes of fans seeing Belgian striker Divock Origi in the next few games have been dashed with the news that he's going to be out for at least another month after under going surgery in Belgium which is a shame for him because before he picked up his hamstring injury on Boxing Day he was starting to show a …
Liverpool's Wishlist: Mario Götze & Two Other Attacking Targets

Liverpool's Wishlist: Mario Götze & Two Other Attacking Targets

Amidst a few troubles as of late for Jürgen Klopp’s redmen (that phrase in itself gives this writer more motivation for this article than any article written under Brendan Rodgers), the need for goals ranks highest of all. Well, perhaps second to injuries, but at least goals are something that can be altered to favour the excitable German domineering the sidelines. Christian Benteke is the biggest issue of the lot; he clearly doesn’t belong anywhere near a Jürgen Klopp Liverpool …
Jürgen Klopp's Midfield Unit

Jürgen Klopp's Midfield Unit

Hello again Anfield Index, it's been a while. Sorry I've taken some time since my last article, but apparently being in the final year of your degree is quite time-consuming. Moving on, in this piece I will be attempting to analyse what I consider the most important component of any Klopp system: the midfield. Most will tell you that Klopp's preferred shape is a 4-2-3-1, which I agree with, and I'll start by discussing what the manager tends to expect from …
