Progress At Liverpool FC Regardless Of Final Fixture

Progress At Liverpool FC Regardless Of Final Fixture

Let's get something absolutely clear from the off, friends - whether Liverpool beat Middlesborough and secure a Champions League play-off or not, there has been obvious, demonstrable progress under Jürgen Klopp this season. This really shouldn't need saying, but the fickle and pugnacious nature of many of our fans makes it important to nail your colours to the mast on any areas of potential conflict. Heaven forbid that one might not be comically extreme on every position. It seems to be de rigeur …
Positivity Around Anfield: How Do We Cope?

Positivity Around Anfield: How Do We Cope?

What with the revelations about plans for further expansion of Anfield, the decision to dedicate an entire stand to Kenny Dalglish, the proposed state-of-the-art training facility in Kirkby and a rumoured bumper transfer spend in the summer, one could be forgiven for thinking that things were looking reasonably positive for Liverpool Football Club. This is a truly novel concept for a lot of supporters, but when you add to the mix the heady combination of a clutch of rivals dropping …
Liverpool Fans Angry Over Sakho And Injuries

Liverpool Fans Angry Over Sakho And Injuries

Occasionally, this columnist will sigh in exasperation at the petty squabbling that seems to be so prevalent amongst the diverse collective known as Liverpool supporters. It's normally testy difference-of-opinion stuff but sometimes it can be ugly, bile-laden posturing, revealing the ignorance and unpleasantness of the individuals in question. Mute buttons were made for these people. Yet, for all one may cringe at such Twitter and Facebook keyboard hardmen, offering each other out for scraps that they know will never happen, at …
Klopp And Lucas Bond Over Derby Win

Klopp And Lucas Bond Over Derby Win

It's been such an emotionally confusing weekend, friends, has it not? Clearly, the dominant feeling has been the sheer exultation in victory over Everton, in what was, for this columnist, the most crucial derby in years. The nature of that win, the mental toughness the Redmen showed and the imposition of their superior quality on a fierce local rival, was even more pleasing than relief that came with the attainment of crucial points in a round of the Barclay's Premier …
Is Momentum Building Again Under Klopp?

Is Momentum Building Again Under Klopp?

International breaks are a bit of a curate's egg. Now, that is supposed to mean that there are both good and bad aspects to them and yet the origin of the expression yields a meaning far closer to this columnist's opinion of the all-too-frequent Premier League interruptions. Apparently, the turn of phrase comes from an 1895 Punch cartoon which depicted a meek and sycophantic curate, who, despite being given a stale egg at the bishop's dining table, obsequiously assured his …
Signing Nathaniel Clyne - Another canny move by Liverpool?

Signing Nathaniel Clyne - Another canny move by Liverpool?

So it looks like Nathaniel Clyne will be Liverpool's sixth summer signing of the season. The infamous 'transfer-committee' have worked tirelessly this summer to ensure that Liverpool's transfer dealings get done early before the start of pre-season. James Miner and Adam Bogdan (free transfers), Danny Ings (Tribunal fee), Joe Gomez (£3.5 million) and Roberto Firmino (£22 million + £7 million add-ons) have already been added to the Reds' squad with the club yet to sell any of the deadwood around …

So what could Depay bring to Liverpool and what are his key strengths and weaknesses? Background Memphis Depay joined PSV Eindhoven in 2006 from Sparta Rotterdam at the age of 12 and was part …
Sterling Qualities!

Sterling Qualities!

In just over a fortnight, the Premier League season will be upon us once again. Weekends will assume a deeper meaning, and thoughts of summer holidays and World Cups in far flung lands, will fade hazily into the memory banks, perhaps retrieved and discussed at some later date, when other matters appear less pressing. Liverpool begin their campaign on Sunday August 17th, against what will become: Ronald Koeman's "new look" Southampton team - a situation forced on the Dutchman by …
