Edwards' Golden Boy Image Depends On His Next Move

Edwards' Golden Boy Image Depends On His Next Move

Rewind a couple of weeks and Liverpool sporting director Michael Edwards was being suggested as the next Red to be knighted. Michael and Edward were the most common baby names on Merseyside. Local sculptors were providing sketches for bronze statues... of his laptop. The surprise signing of Brazilian midfielder, Fabinho, raised enthusiasm for the transfer window and the season to come to levels that haven’t been seen on Merseyside for a generation. The move was a brilliant one on the …

So, as Liverpool look to bolster their ranks following a tremendous Champions League campaign and second consecutive top-four finish, here are a few …
The Case for Xherdan Shaqiri

The Case for Xherdan Shaqiri

Following an impressive start to their summer with the signing of Fabinho and the impending arrival of Naby Keita, Liverpool have looked to bolster what was their most glaring weakness of the season, shining brightly in the eyes of every fan who watched their side go down to Real Madrid in Kiev. A lack of depth. Xherdan Shaqiri, having been relegated with Stoke this season, has emerged as the cut-price option to bolster the Reds’ attacking unit. Should they bring …
Hakim Ziyech Would be the Perfect Response to the Fekir Transfer Saga

Hakim Ziyech Would be the Perfect Response to the Fekir Transfer Saga

If Liverpool’s pursuit of Fabinho was an old-school signing, bereft of a long drawn out process with a strangely anticlimactic moment at the end, Fekir was a good old-fashioned transfer saga. From rumour to confirmation in under two hours, Michael Edwards wrapped up a deal for the defensive midfielder without any complications. The pursuit of Fekir however, was anything but. Liverpool appeared to have a deal for £49million, rising to approximately £53m wrapped up, with the Lyon attacker pictured doing …
Liverpool FC - Getting Smarter

Liverpool FC - Getting Smarter

Liverpool football club is not at the top of the transfer food chain. It's an unpleasant fact but we need to accept it. There are clubs that are richer, stronger and can offer guarantees that LFC just can't. So it's natural that some players will use the famous red jersey as a stepping stone to get to supposedly better clubs. This has been happening for years. Even Steven Gerrard considered it at on point. Just in the past 10 years, …

Alternative Fekirs: Where should Liverpool turn to next?

It was definitely going to be Thursday, then absolutely Friday, then without question Saturday… but at 8pm Saturday night, the Nabil Fekir saga came to an abrupt halt. Depending on which party you believe, Liverpool had reservations once they had the opportunity to review the details of Fekir’s knee reconstructions from two years prior or Liverpool were simply using the knee as an excuse to try and renegotiate a lower fee at the last minute. Regardless of who you believe, …

The summer transfer window remains in its infancy but already there is cause for excitement as Liverpool look to wrap up their summer business in alarmingly swift fashion. Jürgen Klopp wants his squad complete by the time it convenes for pre-season training at the beginning of July and if the club's present efforts to address their outstanding weaknesses prove successful, that squad might just be closed to the finished article. No window is insignificant by any means but this one …

Scouting Fabinho: Liverpool's New Anchor

Monday Night – UK time: Liverpool fans still reel from their Champions League final loss, yet they are motivated in their club’s resolve to use it as the platform for progress; a bump on the road to something special. Nobody quite knew just how quickly the Reds would get moving on that road, though. As photos emerged of their shiny new Brazilian midfielder, standing clad in that famous Red kit, every Liverpool fan in the world probably had the same …
Fabinho Done - Faster Than A Speeding Edwards

Fabinho Done - Faster Than A Speeding Edwards

It’s two days after the Champions League final and the dissection of the game has barely even ended. The discussion, as these discussions are wont to do, turns to the state of Liverpool’s squad after what has been a very exciting but ultimately unsuccessful season – at least in terms of silverware. As heated debates between like-minded but disagreeing individuals tend to do, the discussion zeroed in on the issue of defensive midfield. On and on and on we discussed. …
Lascelles or Tarkowski: Who's the Better Fit?

Lascelles or Tarkowski: Who's the Better Fit?

The wheels of Liverpool’s busy summer have already begun spinning. Even as they head to a Champions League final, rumours have been rife regarding those who will arrive in the summer: The Independent’s Miguel Delaney reported that Michael Edwards has been tasked with finding a centre-half partner for Liverpool’s perceived most important signing in recent memory, Virgil van Dijk. The first two names out of the block share a nationality, and were both unfortunate to not make Gareth Southgate’s twenty-three-man …
