Looking through Liverpool's transfer window pain

Looking through Liverpool's transfer window pain

The transfer window is not even officially open yet, it's only on the latch, but already I feel like closing the window, locking it, throwing away the key and drawing the curtains. Then, I can lie in a darkened room, wrap myself in a duvet and eat chocolates as I watch footage of seasons past when we lived in simpler times. Back then, there might have been the odd story in the papers, but usually the first we heard of …
5 Players That Can Transform Liverpool This Summer

5 Players That Can Transform Liverpool This Summer

Ah, the summer transfer season. It's that time of the year when football fans dream about just who could be lining up in their clubs colours next season. Liverpool secured a top-four finish with a convincing 3-0 win against Middlesbrough on the last day of the 2016/17 Premier League season. Having brought Champions League football back to Anfield, Jürgen Klopp will face tremendous pressure to secure some top names ahead of a fresh campaign. Lots of names have already been spouted …
Why Liverpool can't afford to be reactive in the summer window

Why Liverpool can't afford to be reactive in the summer window

Ignoring the Virgil Van Dijk fume, ignoring Jordan Henderson's ever lasting bruise and ignoring the civil war over FSG's stewardship of the club, Liverpool fans can agree one one thing. The last couple of league games were pretty damn good. A 4-0 win in London, a 3-0 win in Anfield. Everyone was happy, even more so as the full-time blew on the season with Liverpool in the top four and back in the big time, the Champions League. Journalists, fans …
Van Dijk Saga Embarrassing For All Involved

Van Dijk Saga Embarrassing For All Involved

What started as a hugely optimistic week in Liverpool’s summer transfer plans has come crashing down in the most embarrassing fashion. On Monday, Liverpool were hopeful of agreeing a fee for Mohamed Salah, with the Egyptian high on the list of priorities to add some extra fire power to Jurgen’s team ahead of a new campaign. With 19 goals this season in all competitions, Salah would bring acceleration and flair to the table - two ideal assets in breaking down …
Transfer Time: A Brief Cautionary Tale

Transfer Time: A Brief Cautionary Tale

It's really far more than anyone should be expected to bear, you know. There is no way to manoeuvre the minefield that is transfer speculation and retain one's mental equilibrium. I like to think I'm a comparatively calm man, having had my stoicism tested by the slings and arrows over the years, but there's something about the unique cocktail of Liverpool's uncertain fate, the huge investment we have all placed in the importance of Champions League football and the attendant …
Three Potential Signings for Liverpool this summer

Three Potential Signings for Liverpool this summer

As is always the case with a club that are almost exclusively in transition between coaches and have a relatively high turnover of players in their squad, Liverpool and their fans are inundated with links to players from around the globe. Whether it is agent posturing, touting his players’ availability around in the media in order to garner interest, or journalists making stabs in the dark, however, the vast majority of these links are unfounded and ultimately come to nothing. …
Mixing It Up - Klopp's coaching and Liverpool's Cash

Mixing It Up - Klopp's coaching and Liverpool's Cash

The fume has always been a constant feature of LFC’s transfer window in the Twitter era. Failing to land a target and LFC targeting underwhelming players always set LFC’s” twittersphere” ablaze for days. Also a constant feature is the penchant of journalists and agents to link every man who calls football his profession to a transfer to Liverpool. One change in this summer’s transfer window is the concept of “a perfect Klopp” player. Being linked with an underwhelming name, for …
Don’t Get Down over Transfer Talk

Don’t Get Down over Transfer Talk

Wimbledon. The British Grand Prix. Glastonbury. The Edinburgh Fringe Festival. All much loved and well established summer staples. For Liverpool fans, online transfer speculation can be added to that list. Once football seasons end (and occasionally before they draw to their usual disappointing conclusion for supporters of the Reds), fans’ attention diverts immediately to transfer talk. Initially, supporters assess the squad for weaknesses based on the previous nine months of frustration and heartache and identify areas of the team they …
The end of Liverpool?

The end of Liverpool?

Mourinho. Guardiola. Conte. Wenger. Klopp. If there was an Expendables movie for football managers, it would surely include all five of these esteemed and widely respected managers, all of whom have a history of success at the top level. Yet whilst the movement of two of the most impressive managers of recent years, in Mourinho and Guardiola, to the Premier League is a spectacle for both the neutral observer and fans of competition teams alike, it may well herald the definitive end …
Alternatives to Gladbach midfielder Mahmoud Dahoud

Alternatives to Gladbach midfielder Mahmoud Dahoud

As things stand Gladbach midfielder Mahmoud Dahoud is currently the top target for Liverpool this Summer. Reliable journalists like Paul Joyce reported Liverpool's interest a few weeks back and since then most of the reports from various online publications highlight this. As we all know though, things can change with Liverpool and how they brief the media. Next week another player could be the 'top target' and the club will be 'doing all they can to sign them'. Liverpool's recent …
