Scouting Mohamed Salah - The Pacey Little Trickster

Scouting Mohamed Salah - The Pacey Little Trickster

The one that got away is always the hardest to look back on. In the winter of 2014, amidst Liverpool’s most thrilling – not to mention closest run – title challenge in recent memory, many fans called for reinforcements. The spine of the team was functioning well enough, but the team was well and truly carried by a dynamic front three. Mohamed Salah was the man to come in, bolster the ranks and carry Liverpool over the line.

Premier League Proven isn't always a negative

DoF Fantasy Series Part 5: How I’d spend £100m at Liverpool

Liverpool’s ridiculously named “transfer committee” has been a hot topic in recent years.

This should have been an invitation for FSG to step in and implement an idea they wanted all along: a Director of Football. This wouldn't take any credibility away from Rodgers. If anything it would show that the owners not only backed him but valued his opinion and coaching ability. So they'd be taking some responsibilities off of him …
Liverpool FC | Go Fourth and Qualify!

Liverpool FC | Go Fourth and Qualify!

The Monday after another three point display at for Brendan Rodgers's Liverpool, and this week fans of the Mersey Reds have got more than a Premier League victory to celebrate. Seemingly, at times, built from crystal, Daniel Sturridge's goalscoring return made it abundantly clear to the home crowd, and millions of football fans worldwide, exactly the kind of potency in front of goal that the Reds had been missing since August. Sturridge had to wait until past the 70 minute …
