Mignolet's Time as First Choice Liverpool Goalkeeper is Over

Mignolet's Time as First Choice Liverpool Goalkeeper is Over

Liverpool Twitter is hardly ever united. There is always an argument or a disagreement which seems to fracture the fan base, even with Jurgen Klopp in charge. Yet on Tuesday 24th May 2016 the fan base was unequivocally unified as Liverpool announced that they'd signed Mainz 'keeper Loris Karius. The unity wasn't because Karius is a world class 'keeper, he isn't, but because this spelled the end for current goalkeeping incumbent Simon Mignolet. The much maligned Belgian has been the …
Kolo Toure - There Goes My Hero, Watch Him As He Goes

Kolo Toure - There Goes My Hero, Watch Him As He Goes

The words 'Mamadou Sakho' and 'drugs test' must resonate with all Liverpool supporters as a moment where they feared for our subsequent defensive collapse as the season came to an end. The imperious French international had finally won round any remaining doubters and was being lauded as a future captain. When the news broke, I personally didn't want to believe or accept it. However I should have feared not, one man had other ideas and has considerably helped to soften …
Danny Ings: A Welcome Return

Danny Ings: A Welcome Return

As a football club, Liverpool have always come under harsh scrutiny for their dealings in the transfer market. However, the signing of Danny Ings, which was settled for a £6.5million fee at a compensation tribunal, seems a great bit of business from the Reds. While the deal could rise to £8m with add ons, what we have seen from the striker so far certainly warrants the fee. Danny Ings is one of those rare players that never stops running for …
Danny Ings - Starting Over

Danny Ings - Starting Over

At this time of year, Liverpool supporters are getting excited at the prospect of who the club will be signing in the summer. The excitement has reached fever pitch with Jurgen Klopp in charge, with daily rumours circulating about who his targets are and speculation mounting about the changes that will be made to take the club onto the next level. However, it is the return from injury of one of last years summer recruits that has this author equally …
Emre Can, a risk worth taking?

Emre Can, a risk worth taking?

Less than a month ago, Liverpool had beaten Borussia Dortmund at Anfield in one of the most spectacular games in recent memory. Subsequently, Liverpool became favourites to win the Europa League and secure a Champions League spot, under the guidance of Jürgen Klopp. The following two league victories, against Bournemouth and Everton, led many to believe that Liverpool would coast their way through the remaining league games and Europa League semi-final matches without the injured Emre Can; but horrorshow displays against …
Sakho, Cheats, Logic and Bias

Sakho, Cheats, Logic and Bias

Mamadou Sakho divides opinion. The Frenchman has done so ever since his move from Paris Saint-Germain in the Summer of 2013. His first season with the Reds was hit and miss. He shared the left centre-back berth with Daniel Agger. Both players struggled with injuries so it was a sort of timeshare role. Many fans appreciated his talents whereas others weren't comfortable with his unconventional style. I'm a Sakho fan but even I hold my breath sometimes when I see …
Moreno: Why Does He Split Opinion So Much?

Moreno: Why Does He Split Opinion So Much?

After another significant bottle job by this very fragile Liverpool team against Newcastle United, there is definitely reasons to be concerned about our defence. Once again from leading 2-0 at half time, this side managed to surrender by the full-time whistle, and one player seemed to have a game of two halves. Alberto Moreno summed up his season in this particular 90 minutes by not performing at the back but once again being a great outlet going forward. Moreno managed to …
The Resurgence of Our Magician: Philippe Coutinho

The Resurgence of Our Magician: Philippe Coutinho

Since Jurgen Klopp took over there seemed to be a raging debate about whether Philippe Coutinho would make the cut under our German manager. Did he have the energy and the enthusiasm to keep up with the dynamic style of play that our boss wanted to employ? We had all seen evidence of fantastic pressing from Coutinho in the past but could he do it week in, week out and still make an impact on games? We have all known …
Joel Matip - From Schalke, With Love

Joel Matip - From Schalke, With Love

So, Who Have We Got? Joel Matip’s profile makes positive reading for Liverpool fans.  His demeanour reminds me of Lucas Leiva, a smile never too far from the surface.  But we should not let that fool us.  Matip is by no means a soft touch on the pitch.  He puts his body on the line when necessary, displaying bravery and commitment in droves. Matip’s long, slender, 6’4” frame seems to glide across the field at times.  The 24 year old …
Divock Origi Needed One Thing Fans Don't Allow - Time

Divock Origi Needed One Thing Fans Don't Allow - Time

Divock Origi was one of those players that Liverpool bought but didn't really know what we were getting. Brendan Rodgers and the committee saw a player that certainly had potential and was flourishing in the 2014 World Cup. So they splashed the cash and loaned him back to Lille to continue his development. By the time he arrived in the summer of 2015 he had been named in the “worst team of the season” by L'Equipe and was clearly lacking confidence. …
