One Year of Sadio Mané

One Year of Sadio Mané

It's been a year since Sadio Mané joined Liverpool, and in that time he has defied and surpassed all expectations. In his first season, the 25 year old scored 13 league goals and provided 5 assists in 26 games; we can only speculate how impressive his statistics would have been if not for Mané getting injured near the end of the season, and being called up to the Senegal national team for the African Cup of Nations. His signing was …

Scouting Andy Robertson - Hull's Marauding Fullback

With a vast amount of commotion and furore going on, you’d be forgiven for thinking the transfer window lasted all of two weeks. But, in fact, it does last substantially longer than the eleven days it’s been open in England thus far, and as such, deals will likely materialise over the coming month from virtually out of nowhere. One of those deals will likely involve a left-back, especially if the recent reports from The Liverpool Echo, Melissa Reddy and Paul …
What should Liverpool fans expect from Mohamed Salah?

What should Liverpool fans expect from Mohamed Salah?

Securing a top-four finish last season represented real progress for Liverpool, but the Reds’ inability to sustain a title challenge highlighted the need for more quality to be added to their squad. Step forward Mohamed Salah, with the lightning-fast Egyptian international winger arriving at Anfield for the princely sum of £34m and looking to show Premier League audiences just what he is capable of. Little time has passed since the 25-year-old endured a frustrating 13-game spell at Chelsea, but his …
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 …
Why Liverpool FC Shouldn't Get Shirty About Salah

Why Liverpool FC Shouldn't Get Shirty About Salah

A very tentative welcome to Mohamed Salah then. At the time of writing the Egyptian has all-but signed a four year contract for the Reds and I know we’ve been here before, but this could actually be a proper signing. We’ve made a bid and everything. It looks like he’ll cost a little more than Sadio Mane but God knows what represents a good fee these days. I’m still struggling to see how Jordan Ibe cost Bournemouth £15,000,000. Don’t get …
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 …
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 …
Which Formation Should Liverpool Play Next Season?

Which Formation Should Liverpool Play Next Season?

With the dust finally settling on the 2016/17 season, it was a successful season for Liverpool, finishing in 4th place and therefore qualifying for the Champions League. The Reds thus achieved their preliminary pre-season objective of Champions League qualification, which could be classed as a good season for the Reds. However, a problem that threatened to completely derail Jurgen Klopp's side throughout the season was tactical issues. Many cited this as a potential reason for Liverpool failing to sustain their …
Jordan Henderson Remains A Key Player - If Fit

Jordan Henderson Remains A Key Player - If Fit

Football supporters have incredibly short memories. That’s not a needless dig in the slightest, it’s just a fact. We’re all guilty of it. A few poor performances from a player, or a long-term absence from the team, and suddenly their previous excellence is consigned to history. In the space of three or four months, Jordan Henderson has gone from being lauded by the masses for his performances in a new deep-lying midfield role, to being cast aside and not valued …
