Why LFC need Naby Keïta more than Van Dijk

Why LFC need Naby Keïta more than Van Dijk

Liverpool FC, since the departure of Rafael Benitez, has struggled defensively. Indeed, the last time the team conceded less than 40 goals in a league season was in the 2009/10 season, in which Liverpool conceded 35 goals. Since then, Liverpool have conceded 44 (2010/11), 40 (2011/12), 43 (2012/13), 50 (2013/14), 48 (2014/15), 50 (2015/16) and 42 (2016/17). In that period, Liverpool has had Carragher, Agger, Skrtel, Kelly, Coates, Toure, Lovren, Matip, Klavan and others who have all played at centre-back. …

The Seven Year Itch | FSG - A Review

In October of 2010, Fenway Sports Group purchased Liverpool FC for £300 million. In his first statement as owner, John Henry claimed,
'We're here to win and we'll do whatever is necessary.'
Fast-forward almost seven years later, and fans are still divided as to whether FSG have been good owners for the club, and whether the club has progressed, regressed, or simply remained stationary for this period. Under FSG, Liverpool FC have had four managers: Roy Hodgson (sacked January 2011), Kenny …

Liverpool vs Manchester City Preview: Fireworks expected in NYE battle

Liverpool close a record breaking year out with a mouthwatering clash against Manchester City on New Year's Eve, one which could go a long way to decide who gives Chelsea the biggest challenge at the top of the Premier League table. Jürgen Klopp and Pep Guardiola, previous rivals in the Bundesliga, will meet each other in England for the first time, with a clash of playing style and personality likely to prove entertaining. THE DETAILS Match: Liverpool vs Manchester City Venue: Anfield …
Damien Comolli and his Liverpool Flops

Damien Comolli and his Liverpool Flops

Damien Comolli decided to piggyback on the recent success of Jordan Henderson to once again get his name in the headlines. The ex-Director of Football at Liverpool has claimed the club's owners fired him after telling him that £16million man Jordan Henderson was a waste of money.  In quotes taken from a report in the Daily Mirror the Frenchman went on to say:
“The day I got sacked they [Liverpool’s owners] told me I had made a big mistake …
Attack, Liverpool's best form of defence

Attack, Liverpool's best form of defence

Three games into the new Premier League campaign, Liverpool have conceded six goals, whilst scoring just five. Experiments with players operating in new positions, no clear preferred back five, or defined midfield protection, result understandably in questions being asked, even at this early stage. The mistakes and uncertainty will fail to alleviate fans fears, that the defensive frailties of seasons past, have once more not been addressed this summer. When Jürgen Klopp arrived, the area I thought he'd address first …
Ragnar Klavan: The Stop Gap

Ragnar Klavan: The Stop Gap

Liverpool Football Club is in dire need of a central defender, but that’s been the case for a few years now. A few months ago, I was originally satisfied with our current depth. We had Sakho, Lovren, new boy Joel Matip, then there’s Joe Gomez who’d make his return after a long spell out last season, and maybe even Tiago Ilori as our options, which I thought would be more than enough for this season. But that changed a few …
Dejan Lovren: Jury Still In Deliberation

Dejan Lovren: Jury Still In Deliberation

Much has been said about Dejan Lovren since his big money move to Liverpool Football Club in the summer of 2014. The expectation of becoming the leader of Liverpool’s defense had quickly faded and also coincided with fans slamming the gavel on him as a failed piece of business. Error after error was also the cause of fans fuming over social media, some even directly at him regarding his poor form. And even so, former Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers stuck …
The Curious Case of Mamadou Sakho

The Curious Case of Mamadou Sakho

Being a football fan demands that you put your emotions on the line week in, week out. However while we often tell ourselves we won’t let the game effect us, we can’t help it. Being a football fan is an emotional bond. At this moment in time Liverpool fans are on an emotional come down. Some are taking to Twitter to vent their anger and frustration or their unwavering support. Others are quietly contemplating the summer ahead and who will …
Europa League Final Preview: Liverpool vs Sevilla

Europa League Final Preview: Liverpool vs Sevilla

Liverpool face Sevilla in the Europa League final in Basel on Wednesday night, with a place in the Champions League next season the prize for the winners. Since arriving at the club, Jurgen Klopp has placed great importance on the competition, due in part to a disappointing Premier League performance this year. The Reds finished eighth in the table, their lowest position since 2012 and thus they will miss out on European football altogether unless they win against Sevilla, the …
