Profiling Liverpool's Squad Depth Ahead of Next Season

After Liverpool secured qualification into the Champions league for next season, attention turned to the summer transfer window and who the Reds would be signing to both improve and bolster their squad heading into next season. One of Liverpool’s main weaknesses this season has been their lack of squad depth, which has been highlighted following injuries to key players such as Coutinho, Mane and Lallana. When the Reds have everyone fit they are as good as any team in the …

Analysing Liverpool's Season Player By Player

And breathe... A confident and composed 3-0 victory at home to Middlesbrough confirmed Liverpool's spot in the top-four. A clear sign of progression for Jurgen Klopp's first full season in charge at the club, and a platform from which summer transfer dealings will likely stem. With the season now drawn to a close, it's time to take a look at Liverpool's players and assess their campaigns as a whole. Goalkeepers Simon Mignolet – 7 Mignolet has gone from strength to …
Liverpool Fans Angry Over Sakho And Injuries

Liverpool Fans Angry Over Sakho And Injuries

Occasionally, this columnist will sigh in exasperation at the petty squabbling that seems to be so prevalent amongst the diverse collective known as Liverpool supporters. It's normally testy difference-of-opinion stuff but sometimes it can be ugly, bile-laden posturing, revealing the ignorance and unpleasantness of the individuals in question. Mute buttons were made for these people. Yet, for all one may cringe at such Twitter and Facebook keyboard hardmen, offering each other out for scraps that they know will never happen, at …
Liverpool 3 Everton 1: Player Ratings

Liverpool 3 Everton 1: Player Ratings

Liverpool continued their good home form against Top 6 rivals with a convincing win against the blue side of Liverpool. It's always a particularly satisfying win when beating Everton but doing the double over them means the Red side are totally dominant this season. Anyway, back to the game - here are the ratings for the game. Simon Mignolet (7) - Had very little to do. Made a good save from a deflected shot. He would appreciate more such afternoons. Nathaniel Clyne …
Alexander-Arnold Looking Very Much At Home

Alexander-Arnold Looking Very Much At Home

James Baldwin once wrote that "perhaps home is not a place but an irrevocable condition." People, by nature, attach a massive significance to the concept of where we belong. We struggle all our lives with trying to reconcile the spectrum of emotions that our native place can evoke in us. Indifference, hatred, fierce pride - we feel them all if we live long enough. If you're a foreign fan of Liverpool FC, you'll have encountered both the warmth of the …
Are the Kids All Right for Liverpool?

Are the Kids All Right for Liverpool?

Steve McManaman, Robbie Fowler, Michael Owen, Jamie Carragher, Steven Gerrard and Raheem Sterling. Six names that invoke differing opinions amongst Liverpool fans, but whatever their legacy, those six names are the only ones to have come through the youth academy system and successfully establish themselves as first team regulars during the Premier League era. There have been others, such as Dominic Matteo, Martin Kelly and Jon Flanagan who have had spells in the first team, but never really established themselves …
Will Coutinho And Liverpool Bounce Back?

Will Coutinho And Liverpool Bounce Back?

For some reason, most of Latest News' downtime of late has been spent immersed in dystopian fiction. Not the frothy likes of The Hunger Games, mind you. No, the precious spare moments that come our way have been spent listening to well-spoken gents narrating George Orwell's 1984 and Aldous Huxley's Brave New World. Given the state of the world at present, this choice of reading matter seems deliberately grim but sometimes, when times are tough, you just have to double-down and …
Wounded Liverpool Welcome Wolves to Anfield | FA Cup 4th Round Preview

Wounded Liverpool Welcome Wolves to Anfield | FA Cup 4th Round Preview

To say that Liverpool are wounded is an understatement. Talks of a crisis may yet be premature, but there are certainly chinks in the armour that Jurgen Klopp needs to rectify as soon as he possibly can. They welcome a Wolverhampton Wanderers side who have blown hot and cold recently. They beat Stoke in the previous round of the FA Cup, and followed that up by beating Aston Villa in the Championship. But their most recent game was a 3-1 …
Henderson: Clyne Leads By Example

Henderson: Clyne Leads By Example

If you're reading this then you've gotten past the irritation with the immediate past long enough to contemplate the future, and for that, I thank you. The life of the daily columnist is a lonely one and the comfort of your virtual presence warms the cold dying heart of Latest News just enough to brave the internet awfulness and trawl around for stories to tickle your fancy. In the process of doing just that, your scribbler had the misfortune of straying …
Observations from Liverpool's win at Plymouth

Observations from Liverpool's win at Plymouth

Liverpool made hard work of it but they're through to the FA Cup fourth round. A Lucas Leiva header - yes, the Brazilian scored, pick yourself up off the floor - was enough to secure a 1-0 win over Plymouth but it was by no means comfortable. The home side had chances to score and clipped the outside of the post with a great effort in the second-half. You should never be negative when you've won, because that's the important …
