Mbad Idea: Liverpool Already Have Their Number 9

Mbad Idea: Liverpool Already Have Their Number 9

Reports of Liverpool’s chase for Kylian Mbappe have lingered throughout May and June.  The Reds have been tracking him for quite a while and have not been put off by his rocketing notoriety or his price-tag.  Good for them.  Let’s be honest, if he were signed it would change perceptions among supporters and rivals alike and Jurgen Klopp would find an effective way to use him. However, with Mané a key addition last year and Salah brought into the fold last …
Time For Firmino To Break The Curse Of Liverpool’s No.9 Shirt

Time For Firmino To Break The Curse Of Liverpool’s No.9 Shirt

There are a few iconic shirt numbers that you associate with Liverpool Football Club, with both No. 7 and No. 9 very much the standouts. James Milner currently occupies the former once worn majestically by Kenny Dalglish and Luis Suarez, much to the dismay of many who want a more glamorous player donning it, but the latter has been vacant for a year. That is until this week, when it was confirmed that Roberto Firmino would take the honour, with the …
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 …
Just Who Is Mohamed Salah?

Just Who Is Mohamed Salah?

It’s always struck me that the LFC footballing world knows more about obscure players than I ever could. Time and again a name will come up and there’ll be sage nods around the fans of an ‘Ah yes, played 40 times for Cape Coast Ebusua Dwarfs in 2015. Good player’ nature while I’m left scratching my head in confusion. This could be due to a lack of curiosity on my part or, most likely, inherent laziness but, when thousands of …
Scouting Luan - The Silky Brazilian

Scouting Luan - The Silky Brazilian

The rumours are coming thick and fast, and while Liverpool stumbles their way towards one form of European football – preferably the Champions League – Jürgen Klopp has spoken of his resolve to improve his team significantly in the summer. Included in that improvement would be a backup attacker, who’s able to fill in when the likes of Firmino, Mané and Origi are unable to maintain the demanding schedule of a team making strides in Europe. Much will be made …
What Ruben Neves would bring to Liverpool

What Ruben Neves would bring to Liverpool

The link to Ruben Neves is a strange one. It's not out of the ordinary to see a player of his profile being linked with a move to Liverpool in the media. He's young, talented and has a huge resale value if he lives up to his potential. He ticks the boxes. It's that formula, the basic profile for many FSG signings, which makes linking players to Liverpool fairly easy for the press in their quest for clicks. What is …
Where would Mahmoud Dahoud fit in at Liverpool?

Where would Mahmoud Dahoud fit in at Liverpool?

Reports broke on Monday evening that Gladbach midfielder Mahmoud Dahoud was a target for Liverpool this summer as Reds boss Jurgen Klopp looks to find that so far elusive tempo setting midfielder. Since this news became public knowledge there has been plenty of article detailing just who Dahoud is ,and how he managed an impressive 10 interceptions against Manchester City in his first Champions League match, but very little about how he'd fit in at Liverpool. Perhaps it's because people …

Allan Rodrigues de Souza - A Scout Report on Liverpool's Brazilian Target

Liverpool are interested in signing Internacional’s 18-year-old Brazilian midfielder Allan Rodrigues de Souza, with recent stories suggesting that a £500k deal is all but done. The club spotted the player during the Frenz International youth tournament in Malaysia and Indonesia earlier this year, where a Liverpool squad made up of youth players including Sergi Canos, Pedro Chirivela, and Harry Wilson, competed with other youth teams from across the globe. Internacional emerged victorious, defeating Argentine side Estudiantes in the final, but …
Sean O'Driscoll - Similar but Different

Sean O'Driscoll - Similar but Different

It's finally here. Pre-season officially began on July 6th. The 'big' news many ITK's predicted never actually arrived. Despite Callum 'credential' Wright saying a Dubai based company would buy the club they inevitably didn't. The manager wasn't replaced by a certain German. It was kind of nice how straightforward it was in the end after a summer of conspiracy theories. The first team coaching staff got two new additions, the playing staff has been aided by the additions of James …
Not your money though is it? Liverpool Supporters & Transfers

Not your money though is it? Liverpool Supporters & Transfers

Tony 'Bad news' Barrett shattered the tranquillity that the Roberto Firmino signing had brought to Liverpool FC twitter by announcing on Thursday that Liverpool were still very much in for Christian Benteke and they were hoping to get the transfer fee for the Belgian down to the £25million mark. Cue the floods of Christian Benteke highlight montages appearing on twitter as many proclaimed he isn't just a big man but can use his feet well too. Don't mean to burst the …
