Discussing Liverpool's Alternative Options To Naby Keita

Discussing Liverpool's Alternative Options To Naby Keita

Having hit the Bundesliga by storm during the 2016/17 season, Naby Keita has attracted rife interest from across the globe. Jurgen Klopp has identified the midfielder as one of his priority targets this summer, but with RB Leipzig set to dig their heels in and rebuff any approach for their star man, Liverpool may need to look elsewhere. I asked some of the Anfield Index writers who they would like to see at Anfield should a move for Keita fail …
Can Coutinho start alongside Lallana In Midfield?

Can Coutinho start alongside Lallana In Midfield?

Liverpool's signing of Mohamed Salah, and Coutinho's success in a no.8 position at the end of the 2016-17 season is widely expected to herald Coutinho's move to the midfield permanently. However, for the coming season, providing Liverpool stick with a 4-3-3, let alone use the 4-4-2 diamond that featured against West Ham and Middlesborough in the penultimate and ultimate games of the season, it seems hard to accommodate for both Coutinho and Adam Lallana in midfield. Whilst Lallana and Coutinho …
Jordan Henderson Remains A Key Player - If Fit

Jordan Henderson Remains A Key Player - If Fit

Football supporters have incredibly short memories. That’s not a needless dig in the slightest, it’s just a fact. We’re all guilty of it. A few poor performances from a player, or a long-term absence from the team, and suddenly their previous excellence is consigned to history. In the space of three or four months, Jordan Henderson has gone from being lauded by the masses for his performances in a new deep-lying midfield role, to being cast aside and not valued …
A Case For Selling Jordan Henderson

A Case For Selling Jordan Henderson

I am a Jordan Henderson fan. I do not dislike him as a player or person in any way. My argument for selling him here is purely business, and I believe would be in the best interest of both the player and club. Jordan Henderson has been a fine player for LFC since Kenny Dalglish bought him from Sunderland in 2011 for £16 million. In Henderson’s first season, Dalglish often shunted him out wide, thus squandering his talent as a …
Emre Can: Should Liverpool Let Go?

Emre Can: Should Liverpool Let Go?

Excitement... despair… euphoria. The LFC Twitter rumour-mill has roared to life since the close of the Premier League season. Lost in the up, down and up again speculation surrounding Mo Salah and Virgil Van Dijk has been a report from the Daily Star that Juventus are after one of Liverpool's handsomest. Supposed quotes from “people close to Can" appeared on Twitter saying that the player was “ready to cash in” with a move to Turin. A FICKLE HISTORY In the …
Fitness & Depth: Liverpool's Summer Needs

Fitness & Depth: Liverpool's Summer Needs

With silly season upon us, every radio host, back page editor and ITK Twitter expert will be theorizing on who Liverpool might be bringing in as the Reds prepare to make their return to the Champions League. Of course with Liverpool supporters there's always the added dimension of Fenway Sports Group. Are you #FSGIN or #FSGOUT? Are FSG spending enough? Are they allowing Jurgen Klopp to build a big enough squad? Do they have enough "ambition?" Rarely in any of …
Tale of Liverpool's Season: Doubters to Believers

Tale of Liverpool's Season: Doubters to Believers

Jürgen Klopp had one true ambition this season. Turning doubters into believers. An impressive pre-season, capped off with a 4-0 demolition of Barcelona at a sold-out Wembley Stadium had expectations running high already. But it was the 4-3 victory over Arsenal in the very first game of the season that really got people talking. Sadio Mané was the replacement for Raheem Sterling that Liverpool FC had so desperately needed. Roberto Firmino was well and truly into his groove, Gini Wijnaldum's …

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.

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 …
How The Perfect Liverpool Squad Should Look Next Season

How The Perfect Liverpool Squad Should Look Next Season

Another season has been and gone, but unlike so many at Liverpool since they decided to stop winning everything, 2016/17 has left us with a feeling of great warmth. The Reds’ title challenge may have fizzled out after a very promising first four months, but sealing Champions League qualification has to be seen as a huge positive. It is very easy for Liverpool fans to have a sense of entitlement, given the club’s incredible history both domestically and in Europe, …
Candidates for Liverpool's MOTM vs Middlesbrough

Candidates for Liverpool's MOTM vs Middlesbrough

Liverpool capped off a successful campaign with a 3-0 home win over relegated Middlesbrough, confirming Liverpool's place in the Champions League qualifiers. Before kick-off, Reds fans greeted the team bus with a voiceforous welcome - it brought back memories of last season when flares billowed through Anfield's Shankly Gate. The atmosphere was deafening inside Anfield too, as the hosts took to the pitch in their slick and contemporary new kit. Nerves were jangling at Anfield though inside the first 40 minutes, …
