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

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 …
A Fickle Fanbase & the van Dijk Repercussions

A Fickle Fanbase & the van Dijk Repercussions

For too long, Liverpool have placed far too much emphasis on talking about transfers, and have subsequently lacked the dynamism in the market to back that talk up with meaningful actions. Liverpool over the years have consequently developed an extensive list of missed targets that the club widely reported our interest in. Such an approach has left the Liverpool fan-base disappointed and embarrassed on countless occasions, as we’ve expected to sign a player, and embraced the hype surrounding that player, …
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 …
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 …
Liverpool FC Need to Adapt to Modern Transfer Market

Liverpool FC Need to Adapt to Modern Transfer Market

For the second time since 2008/09, Liverpool FC qualified for the Champions League. The club appears to finally on the right track to achieving its long-term ambitions of first returning to the top table of European football, and second, to win titles as part of that. Essential to meeting these objectives consistently is the signing of new players, for the starting XI, which would help Liverpool progress from a team that just pipped Arsenal to fourth spot, to a consistent title …
Scouting Mohamed Salah - The Pacey Little Trickster

Scouting Mohamed Salah - The Pacey Little Trickster

The one that got away is always the hardest to look back on. In the winter of 2014, amidst Liverpool’s most thrilling – not to mention closest run – title challenge in recent memory, many fans called for reinforcements. The spine of the team was functioning well enough, but the team was well and truly carried by a dynamic front three. Mohamed Salah was the man to come in, bolster the ranks and carry Liverpool over the line.
“I …
