Stay Calm and Trust Klopp

Stay Calm and Trust Klopp

It's an obvious thing to state and it can perhaps come across as being somewhat condescending, but the transfer window does not close until 11pm UK time on Thursday 31st August. So, at the time of writing this, there's still nearly three more weeks to go. However, it seems that final judgement, in all its absolution, has already been passed by many. Don't get me wrong, I think our transfer window has been a little underwhelming up to now. The …
What happens next with Liverpool and Virgil Van Dijk?

What happens next with Liverpool and Virgil Van Dijk?

In a summer filled with ITK's, unconfirmed reports and general nonsense, concrete news is always appreciated. Concrete news is even more appreciated when it's positive for your interests, something Liverpool fans had yesterday as news broke of Virgil Van Dijk handing an official transfer request into Southampton. Yes, Southampton had known of his desire to leave. So had Liverpool, so had Chelsea. You knew, I knew. The bloke down the pub knew. But, this is certainly a development. Van Dijk …
Virgil Van Dijk Proves Transfer Requests Are Still A Thing

Virgil Van Dijk Proves Transfer Requests Are Still A Thing

They say the purpose of the darkness is that it makes us appreciate the light. And following a night where publications from opposite corners of the globe had Phil Coutinho packed up and gone, any positive news would have been welcome. The sun still came up in Liverpool and the headlines improved as the day went on. “Jurgen insists Liverpool won’t sell Coutinho,” said the Guardian. That’s our Klopp! Then came the classic James Pearce denial. Get in! “Phil would …
Joe Gomez Should Remain At Liverpool This Season

Joe Gomez Should Remain At Liverpool This Season

Joe Gomez has endured a torrid time since moving to Liverpool, suffering an untimely ACL injury just seven days into Jurgen Klopp’s tenure as manager. The 20-year-old was ruled out for the rest of the season after being forced off the pitch ten minutes into England Under-21’s game against Kazakhstan.
“Gomez came here and I met him for the first time. What a wonderful young play – tall and muscles in the right positions. From this point on it goes …
FSG In, FSG Out, but what about Jurgen Klopp?

FSG In, FSG Out, but what about Jurgen Klopp?

In what has been a turbulent summer for Liverpool fans up until this point, one thing remains reasonably consistent: speculation about FSG. FSG this, FSG that. FSG in, FSG out. FSG are to blame if we don’t sign Van Dijk and Keita, FSG don’t want us to sign Van Dijk and Keita, FSG will have proven themselves, it’s time for FSG to step up. And amongst all of this, it’s not clear who FSG is actually supposed to mean. Is …
No van Dijk? No Replacement? Equals Failed Transfer Window

No van Dijk? No Replacement? Equals Failed Transfer Window

In the last three seasons the Reds have conceded 140 goals in the Premier league, that is an average of 46.7 goals a season. Simply not good enough. There's nothing better than seeing an attacking Liverpool side at their fluid, dynamic best causing havoc to opposition defences, but for the previous five years, possibly longer,  we've seen our defence capitulate all too often. 4 against Bournemouth, 3 against Leicester, 3 against Watford, 2 against a dire Sunderland side. These are …
Assessing Liverpool's Defence For The Upcoming Campaign

Assessing Liverpool's Defence For The Upcoming Campaign

Having signed Dominic Solanke and smashing the club’s record transfer fee for Mohamed Salah, Liverpool have begun identifying key weaknesses within their current side. Andy Robertson is the latest to join The Reds this summer as Jurgen Klopp looks to address what has been a troubling position for several years now. However, there remains a number of issues within the current squad, particularly in the defensive areas. So, with a new season on the horizon, how are Liverpool shaping up …
Why Is Andrew Robertson Already Being Written Off?

Why Is Andrew Robertson Already Being Written Off?

In a summer full of possible high-profile signings at Liverpool, the next likely incoming is Hull City’s Andrew Robertson. The young left-back is being hotly-tipped to seal a move to the Reds at some point in the near future, as Jurgen Klopp continues to fine-tune his squad ahead of next season. If there has been a certain level of hysteria surrounding potential deals for Virgil van Dijk, Naby Keita and other less plausible options this summer, as well as the …
Virgil van Dijk is Worth £70m to Liverpool

Virgil van Dijk is Worth £70m to Liverpool

Nonsense governs the football transfer market. Trying to find sense in the machinations of hyper rich football clubs and the pursuit of their transfer targets is puerile. There is no universal rule that applies to all clubs when it comes to valuing players; rather it is subjective and depends on the context of the club willing to spend money on a said player. This bring us to Virgil van Dijk and his proposed and so far turbulent transfer to Liverpool. …
Second-Season Masterclass From Magic Mane?

Second-Season Masterclass From Magic Mane?

Some players take a while to adjust at a club of Liverpool’s stature, with the enormous pressure on them every minute of every day something they cannot cope with. For Sadio Mane, however, his Reds career could barely have got off to a better start. Having arrived in relatively low-key circumstances last summer, with the 25-year-old labelled as “just another Southampton player”, some exciting pre-season performances gradually saw him gain admirers. Then, on his official Liverpool debut, Mane decided to …
