Liverpool FC - Financial Analysis

Liverpool FC - Financial Analysis

Amidst the furore of the January transfer window, the UEFA European Club Footballing Landscape report was published, a report which UEFA assert is 'like no other publication of its kind'. In terms of scope and depth though, it supersedes the analysis of the oft-quoted Deloitte Money League, which I broke down with respect to Liverpool FC here. That being said, I would recommend you read that first, as an introductory piece, to provide some context to the following discussion. For …
It's the Hope That Kills You

It's the Hope That Kills You

It’s the hope that kills you... a famous saying that can be attributed to almost any situation in life. Some important, some less so but it seems to perfectly sum up the current situation at Liverpool F.C. To be blunt and please excuse the language but ... WHAT THE F**K are we doing? Where is this club going? What are our aims and ambitions? What’s the plan? Who are the players that are going to make us achieve these ambitions? …
Radio Silence Of Window A Sign Of Things To Come At Liverpool FC?

Radio Silence Of Window A Sign Of Things To Come At Liverpool FC?

Radio silence makes everyone nervous, particularly when it comes to transfers. Having allowed Coutinho to make his highly anticipated big-money move to Barcelona midway through the season with the top-four, FA Cup and Champions League still all to play for represents a huge risk from Jurgen Klopp and the owners. Naturally, that's sent fans into meltdown over who could possibly replace the Brazilian's verve and creativity in the No.10 role. Such unease hasn't been helped by the stark lack of …
Don't Call Liverpool FC A Selling Club

Don't Call Liverpool FC A Selling Club

Aidy Ward. At one time the name was enough to put Liverpool supporters into a cold sweat. That was remedied somewhat when he brought us Oxlade-Chamberlain from Arsenal...  But prior to that he was considered the slimiest of all of the snakes in the reptile genus for facilitating Raheem Sterling’s move to Manchester City. That dark period was 2 years and 5 months ago; the last time any Liverpool player of significance to the club was sold.  Mr. Ward was …
New Year New Faces at Anfield?

New Year New Faces at Anfield?

The November international break is usually seen as the real precursor to a sustained period of rumour and conjecture ahead of the January transfer window. For Liverpool, the issues are clear and there have been a number of suggestions made in regard to players who can come in and sort out the problems in defence. But those defensive problems may form only part of the potential business in and out of Anfield at the start of 2018. Traditionally, this is …
Liverpool beat Arsenal by four, let the season begin!

Liverpool beat Arsenal by four, let the season begin!

Arsenal rolled over like a puppy as Liverpool produced a devastating attacking display to whack the Gunners by four on Sunday evening. Jürgen Klopp's side were improved at the back, impressive in midfield and imperious going forward. The pre-match decision to drop, rest, whatever, Simon Mignolet for Loris Karius was much talked about, but mattered little thanks to fantastic display's from those in front of the German. Joe Gomez again filled in capably for Trent Alexander-Arnold, filling in himself for …
Scouting Kerem Demirbay - Hoffenheim's Electric Man

Scouting Kerem Demirbay - Hoffenheim's Electric Man

As Liverpool stormed into the Champions League group stages with an effervescent performance, their opponents seemed awed by the big stage. Julian Nagelsmann’s men fell victim to Liverpool’s superb attacking impetus, though their achievement is no less impressive. Hoffenheim got to the Champions League qualifying stages off the back of a tremendous campaign, with a young and idealistic manager who has vowed to play a brand of exciting football. One of that brand’s chief proponents has been Kerem Demirbay, who …
One Transfer To Save Liverpool's Summer

One Transfer To Save Liverpool's Summer

Keita, Van Dijk, Oxlade Chamberlain... rinse and repeat.  The 2017 summer transfer window passed the annoying stage several weeks ago.  Since the signing of Mo Salah, the remaining names on the list haven’t changed, neither have Liverpool made any apparent progress in getting these deals over the line.  All three would be big additions to a squad with more holes than the old Hitachi kit you have hanging in your closet, but one major problem in concluding these deals is that there is …
Liverpool's Uncharted August

Liverpool's Uncharted August

Early in July we all  had our favorite Liverpool writer we looked to for transfer intel, but those usually clued-in were mostly silent.  Into the void stepped a new batch of ITK’s with exotic ties to unnamed “sources” from far away lands. We quietly hoped they had it right.  They didn’t. Curiously, they were all telling similar tales, that Liverpool would at least have the second of their top three targets leaning on walls and swapping stories about their Istanbul …
Liverpool's Summer: Don't Panic!

Liverpool's Summer: Don't Panic!

There’s something hypocritical about being a football writer. Every now and then you’ll pen an article calling for calm or even asking for silence of the bawling masses when ‘the fume’ gets a little too much. ‘Everybody relax’ you’ll shout like a Roman emperor trying to hush the Coliseum while you make your mind up about who’s living and dying today. This is all well and good but, of course, your actual words do nothing but add to the general …
