The difficult third season: can Liverpool replicate their brilliance?

The difficult third season: can Liverpool replicate their brilliance?

Regardless of how this season ends up being decided, this is a special, history-making Liverpool side we are witnessing. The Reds have become the most respected club team on the planet over the past 12 months, not only holding their own against a wonderful Man City outfit, but also clinching Champions League glory and lying on the verge of a maiden Premier League crown. To achieve a club record 97 points last season was a magnificent effort in itself, even …
The What Could Have Been Liverpool XI: The Defence

The What Could Have Been Liverpool XI: The Defence

There have been several players in Liverpool's recent past who have enjoyed the best football of their careers at Anfield and inscribed themselves into the club's history with memorable performances. Steven Gerrard, Jamie Carragher and Fernando Torres -- to name but three -- either spent all of their careers or, in Gerrard's case as good as, with the Reds or -- with Torres as an example -- enjoyed their career-best runs of form in a Liverpool shirt. There have been …

Why Liverpool might be interested in Victor Osimhen

You can tell football is close to a return. Transfer rumours are slowly starting to emerge with greater regularity. The usual suspects have been on the agenda for Liverpool with Timo Werner and his release clause dominating talk. Mario Gotze and his contract situation has seen him linked with a reunion with Jurgen Klopp. But perhaps the most interesting report over recent days has been the one claiming the table toppers are interested in Lille forward Victor Osimhen.  The 21-year-old …
What Makes The Reds So Great Part 2

What Makes The Reds So Great Part 2

Before the worldwide coronavirus pandemic ground the Premier League season to what we are assured is a temporary halt, Liverpool looked set to win the league title at a canter. Winning 27 out of their 29 games, the Reds — who have beaten every other team in the league on their remarkable run — find themselves a full 25 points ahead of second-place Manchester City and, mathematically, only need two more wins to claim the clubs’ 19th league success and …

Jan Vertonghen: Liverpool's Deluxe Klavan

Despite football -- like the vast majority of society -- being in a COVID19 pause, the transfer rumour mill continues to grind. Uncertainty regarding when football will return and what the post-coronavirus state of play will play hasn't stopped players talking about what their futures might hold and fanning the flames of transfer speculation.

Why Mario Gotze could be perfect for Liverpool

Why Mario Gotze could be perfect for Liverpool

“He taught me everything about professional football. He let me play. I often speak to [Jurgen] Klopp. We never stopped talking. He knows me very well and that I am always looking for new challenges.” Mario Gotze, speaking to DAZN earlier this year, left the door ajar on a potential reunion with Klopp. He was on Liverpool’s radar in 2016, too, but opted for a return to Borussia Dortmund at the time.  Speaking in the 2018 documentary, Being Mario Gotze, …

Should Liverpool be interested in Diego Carlos?

Should Liverpool be interested in Diego Carlos?

Liverpool were on pace to break the record for most points in a single Premier League campaign before football was paused. Remarkably, the Reds had won 93% of their matches in the English top-flight this term. For a bit of context, the Manchester City centurions, regarded by many to be one of the best sides ever, won 84% of their games.  It highlights just how incredible this Liverpool side is. Upgrading any area isn’t easy but with football perpetually evolving, …

Where would Luis Garcia fit into this Liverpool team?

Where would Luis Garcia fit into this Liverpool team?

It’s easy to imagine how Liverpool greats from the Premier League era would fit into this current side. There’s are obvious places for Steven Gerrard, Luis Suarez, Xabi Alonso and Jamie Carragher. You could even shoehorn Philippe Coutinho back into this side, too. Maybe even Fernando Torres at a push.  But very few people would ever think to mention Luis Garcia.  However, I’m of the belief that he’s very much a Jurgen Klopp sort of player and that the German …
