Central Midfield Recommendations for Liverpool FC

Central Midfield Recommendations for Liverpool FC

The talking point of the season so far, perhaps bar the sparkling performances of our striking duo, is Liverpool FC's midfield. Many fans have pointed towards our lack of creativity and control in midfield as the key weakness to our top four aspirations, with Lucas' lacking positional discipline (being dribbled past 1.6 times per game this season and committing a whopping 2.3 fouls per game) and the ageing captain not being able to keep at a top level performance for …
Liverpool's January Window Links

Liverpool's January Window Links

Although the transfer window has been shut for nearly two months, it’s slowly beginning to rise and before you know it players will be wearing a new kit and possibly a new number. Liverpool should look to be active and not only continue to add depth to the squad but also add some players of a certain quality. Liverpool supporters are well aware how awful the Redmen’s first window under manager Brendan Rodgers went and I think Rodgers hasn’t forgotten …
Liverpool Summer Transfer Round-Up & Evaluation

Liverpool Summer Transfer Round-Up & Evaluation

After missing the Champions League the last three seasons, Liverpool are hoping to boost their team with all the new signings they have made this summer.  Liverpool have had a tough time finishing sixth, seventh, eighth, and seventh in the last four years and it has gotten tougher for them to attract the big player without Champions League football and have been wasteful with their money in recent years. In Brendan Rodgers' first season, he tried to change the way …
What can Shakhtar man Mkhitaryan bring to Liverpool?

What can Shakhtar man Mkhitaryan bring to Liverpool?

For his country, he’s their standout player while at club level, in a side packed with talent from Ukraine and South America, he’s shone when he’s needed to. It’s fair to say that Henrikh Mkhitaryan is a star for both Armenia and Shakhtar Donetsk. Primarily an attacking midfielder, he can also play as a second striker, and his record with the reigning Ukrainian champions is impressive. Since starting for Mircea Lucescu’s side back in 2010 following a £5m move from …
Do Liverpool need to buy anyone this January?

Do Liverpool need to buy anyone this January?

As we approach the January transfer window Liverpool will be looking to bring in a few new faces to the club and whether those players are stars or up and comers we will find out. As you look at the team closely you are able to find those areas in which we are in need and I will be going through that specifically. To start with we look at our goalkeeper big Pepe,the 3 time golden glove winner, has started …
Transfer Window Review (Part I) | Defenders

Transfer Window Review (Part I) | Defenders

It doesn't seem so long ago, that I was writing the "What our team needs" series. That was back in April, and I identified 4 key areas that we needed to add some quality to the side. Those were Left Back , Centre Back, a Centre Midfielder, and a Winger. It may take some reading to look at them all, but if you haven't already, then it maybe a worth giving them a quick scan. In summary, I assessed the squad …
Player Profile: Stewart Downing

Player Profile: Stewart Downing

On Friday 15th of July 2011 it was announced that Stewart Downing had completed his long awaited move to Liverpool Football Club. It has to be said that this signing has been somewhat underwhelming for most Liverpool fans, especially with the suggested price tag of £20 million. Although Stewart Downing may not be player that will set the world alight, he still has a lot to offer Liverpool. Also being a left-footed wide player he is something Liverpool have been missing for a long, long time …

Expectations: Transfers and Next Season

Twitter can only get you so far when trying to explain your thoughts on a lot of things, limited to 140 characters, it's difficult, especially when I see so many people being very optimistic and so many "ITK"'s contradicting each other with whatever rumours there may be. So I thought I'd look at what we can expect and what I think we should expect to see from now until May of next year. Since purchasing the club, John Henry has …

Rumour: Bojan and Canales

Liverpool are looking to boost their attacking lineup by adding two of the hottest talents on Spanish soil, Bojan Krkić and Sergio Canales. Canales warded off any attempts to get him on loan in January, but patience is running thin.'Its been a tough year', admits Canales. For someone who should be starting games at this age, he is waiting in the wings for his turn. With the wealth of talent in Madrid, it doesn't look like the attacking midfielder stands a chance of replacing Kaka or Ozil in the first team. Damien Comolli, now the Director of Football at Liverpool FC, rates him highly from his days at Racing Santander …

Could Charlie Adam be our new Alonso?

Since Alonso's big money departure to join Spanish giants Real Madrid, we have never quite come to terms with his loss. Many actually believe this has caused our decline over the last few seasons …
