Ronan Murphy: Bundesliga and LFC Q&A

We caught up with Bundesliga expert Ronan Murphy (FootballTransfers and Sonypicturessportsnetwork.com) to expire all the links to Germany. Jude Bellingham! How do you see his situation and do you think it’s realistic he comes to Anfield? Bellingham is going to be so in-demand next summer, it will be hard …
Potential Julian Ward Replacements: Christoph Freund

Potential Julian Ward Replacements: Christoph Freund

In our five-part series, we take a look at potential candidates to replace Julian Ward this summer as sporting director. Following on from Paul Mitchell our second candidate sees us stay in Europe, but move to the landlocked nation of Austria and the famous Red Bull set-up in Salzburg. It would be an ambitious move should we manage to tempt Christoph Freund to Anfield. However, the evidence suggests it’s a risk that maybe worth taking. The 45 year-old isn’t a …
World Cup Matchday 1: Liverpool Roundup

World Cup Matchday 1: Liverpool Roundup

The first 5 days of the World Cup are now complete, and there's been no lack of excitement. We've seen Qatar embarrassed in their opening match, both members of the 2014 final beaten by Asian teams, and a Keylor Navas performance so bad that Alvaro Morata couldn't make him look good. Drama has been aplenty, with the Qatar government being under constant scrutiny for decisions involving beer sales, "One Love" armbands, and more. Hidden among the chaos have been 7 …
Liverpool Players Who Could Break Into The Euro 2024 England Squad

Liverpool Players Who Could Break Into The Euro 2024 England Squad

With England having successfully dispatched Iran 6-2 in their opening game, it gave the nation a spirited start to an otherwise strange World Cup tournament. The winter break seems bizarre, the one love arm band debate is on going, but in between we saw the three lions turn out a pretty ruthless and efficient display. With a few grumblings over the initial squad selection by Garth Southgate, that subject can now be shelved, and allow for the group stage matches …
David Johnson

David Johnson "The Assassin" - An Underrated Liverpool Legend

David Johnson always suffered by comparison with the man who replaced him. Over the years dozens of conversations about the great 1978-79 team have included the line, “Imagine if Rushie would have been a couple of years older.” Johnson’s contribution to the club has too often been overlooked. He was an international-class performer and that he was overshadowed says a lot about the greatness of the team at the time. But it’s not his ability that me and my mates …
What If Klopp Were To Leave After The Liverpool Buyout…

What If Klopp Were To Leave After The Liverpool Buyout…

When FSG announced the club was for sale, there was a moment of surprise, a period of browsing social media, a few group message checks, and finally the wonderment of what we could become. We have been fantastically successful under our current owners, and despite the on-going grumblings of discontent, we couldn’t have won our impressive haul of silverware if not for their own buyout in 2010. The details of prospective owners seemed to reach its peak about a week …
Liverpool World Cup Watch: Who's going?

Liverpool World Cup Watch: Who's going?

Today marks November 14th, the deadline for national teams to submit their 26-man rosters for the 2022 World Cup. All nations have now obliged to do so, and our full player counts have been revealed. Rather surprisingly, only 7 Liverpool players will be heading to Qatar, 1 down from our total of 8 in 2018. However, if Diogo Jota wasn't injured and Joel Matip didn't choose to retire from international football at the age of 24, 9 players would be …
Key Points That Klopp Needs To Address In The World Cup Break

Key Points That Klopp Needs To Address In The World Cup Break

With the remaining Reds that won’t be heading to the World Cup in Qatar, it represents an opportunity to realign what has veered off course this year. Jurgen Klopp and Pep Lijnders will undoubtedly be laying out a route back to consistent success, and I think we would all like to see that old mentality, old drive, and much loved intensity return, when the Premier League resumes in late December. These first team players are not boarding their national team's …
Why The World Cup Break Could Be Beneficial For Liverpool

Why The World Cup Break Could Be Beneficial For Liverpool

The 2022 FIFA World Cup has certainly been the subject of much controversy. On December 2nd, 2010, Qatar were selected as the 2022 hosts, despite many allegations and suspicions of bribing and shady payments. At the time, it seemed like a questionable decision, but now it seems like an abysmal one. Qatar's extremely hot climate have caused many problems, even while just building the stadiums. Underpaid, dehydrated, and overworked workers worked tirelessly to build the arenas, working through 100 degree …
Tony Evans: The Pantspissers Have Been Squealing

Tony Evans: The Pantspissers Have Been Squealing

The football authorities have developed this unhappy knack of taking something special and ruining it. Generally, it’s in pursuit of money. The World Cup is a perfect example. Switching focus from the domestic season to a tournament and back again in a six-week period doesn’t work. In a World Cup summer, the season ends, there’s space to readjust before international competition begins and a similar process happens between the final and the new league campaign. There’s a sense of completion …
