Ajax Pair Could Help Liverpool’s Title Bid

Ajax Pair Could Help Liverpool’s Title Bid

The January transfer window is now open. After Liverpool’s first defeat of the Premier League season to rivals Manchester City, it is possible that manager Jurgen Klopp could be tempted to dip into the transfer market. Liverpool still hold a four-point lead at the top of the Premiership and whilst the current squad may have Klopp’s backing, it may be wise for the club to strengthen this month. Having won all their December fixtures and enjoying a successful festive period, …
5 Realistic January Transfer Targets for Liverpool

5 Realistic January Transfer Targets for Liverpool

Liverpool are on top of the Premier League. Though there is little cause to remedy anything in this Liverpool side right now, they are in the midst of a tense, to-and-fro title challenge, and will face the German Goliath Bayern Munich in the first knockout phase of the Champions League in February. For a variety of reasons, Michael Edwards and Jürgen Klopp have been reticent to delve into the January transfer market during their time at Liverpool, but if there …
Five Strikers That Would Suit Liverpool

Five Strikers That Would Suit Liverpool

It seems clear that Jürgen Klopp has a plan. In the last six to twelve months, Liverpool have toyed with a 4-2-3-1 system – the kind that the German used at Dortmund regularly. With the midfield stagnating in the 4-3-3 and Liverpool’s dazzling forwards looking starved of creativity, it makes sense to withdraw Roberto Firmino to his favoured role as the #10 and look to play with a more traditional, clinical striker. This striker would have to be able to …
Leon Bailey and that

Leon Bailey and that "Concrete Interest"

With the breaking news this morning that Bailey himself confirmed Liverpool have a “concrete interest” in him, I decided to follow on from my pieces on Fekir & Pulisic with a look at the Leverkusen star, Leon Bailey. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VfzKDAPd9VY Above: Reliable Bundesliga journalist, Old Gregg, hinting at a move to Liverpool. My mind wandered this morning to that exact moment I fell in love with him, as a player. I had seen him a few times, mostly in cameos or a …
Can Pulisic Break the Curse?

Can Pulisic Break the Curse?

All major signings come with an element of risk. Will they settle in a new country? Adapt well to the pace of the game here? Or to their new clubs tactical framework? For some players, the risk is an even greater one. Their name is Christian. [caption id="attachment_35751" align="aligncenter" width="480"] Stewart Lee has really let himself go.[/caption] Liverpool's problem with the name 'Christian' began back in 2000 when they illegally approached Christian Ziege and signed him by meeting the exact …

Is the Alisson transfer really a statement of intent from FSG?

Xherdone - Shaqiri is a Red

Xherdone - Shaqiri is a Red

So Xherdan Shaqiri is a Liverpool player. This has been one that has threatened to run for most of the window, but in the end, LFC wrapped it up with little fuss and little mess, courtesy of a £13m release clause in his contract after Stoke were relegated from the Premier League last season. It’s been a strange summer for Liverpool, one that started in earnest with Fabinho’s signing on top of the already incoming Naby Keita, threatening to completely …

Two Beaches, One Red Bum? LFC's World Cup Summers

Two Beaches, One Red Bum? LFC's World Cup Summers

Four weeks remain until the transfer window slams shut and Liverpool have added one senior player. One. Is it time to panic or is this just business as usual during a World Cup summer? The only logical thing to do, painful as it may be, is to get in the way-back machine turn the dial back to the summer of 2014. By this point in that summer, the Reds were ahead of the pace, having already raided Southampton twice and …
