Both Liverpool and Manchester United reportedly put off by Aaron Ramsey wages

As Aaron Ramsey prepares to sign on the dotted line for Italian Serie A giants Juventus, it appears Liverpool and Manchester United both decided against approaching the Welsh midfielder due to salary expectations. According to the Evening Standard, Ramsey is to sign a pre-contract agreement with I Bianconeri in the next 24 hours. The deal will see the 28-year-old midfielder join Juventus at the end of this current season when his Arsenal contract finally expires. Ramsey has spent 11 years …
Midfield Reinforcements For Liverpool: Pre-contract Targets To Add Creativity

Midfield Reinforcements For Liverpool: Pre-contract Targets To Add Creativity

Liverpool's midfield benefitted from £100m in investment over the summer with the surprise signing of Monaco's Fabinho, and the arrival of Naby Keita - signed from RBL last summer. However, with the injury to Oxlade-Chamberlain, we've still had to suffer through games with Gini Wijnaldum, James Milner and Jordan Henderson in the engine room. As we've seen in recent games, the three from last season's team are able to provide a solid midfield to counter teams like PSG and Man …
Aaron Ramsey is a terrible idea for Liverpool

Aaron Ramsey is a terrible idea for Liverpool

Have you ever bought something gimmicky just to impress your friends and then regretted it later? In the fall of 1993, I confidently strolled into the first day of school rocking the LA Gear inflatable pump sneakers. And yes, they were called Regulators… mount up. It immediately dawned on me that the pump was going to be a problem. Not just in the hallways, but in the middle of classes, friends, randoms, lunch ladies, would reach down to pump them …

Premier League 2018/19 Season Preview

After an enormously entertaining World Cup full of drama and decadence, we the football faithful have been cast into the darkness of a month without the beautiful game. This has not stopped the majority of the big Premier League clubs from making money moves in anticipation. Ahead, we preview what to expect from them this season.

Liverpool 4-0 Arsenal: A Tactical Breakdown

Liverpool 4-0 Arsenal: A Tactical Breakdown

After a dominant display against Hoffenheim, Liverpool were starting to look something like the team that did so well for the first half of the 2016-17 season. Whilst Liverpool have a good record, of late, against Arsenal and the rest of the top six, there are few games that get fans so excited and worried at the same time. Arsenal though, played into Liverpool's hands with their tactical setup, and as a result Liverpool simply blew them away. We'll be …
Observations as Liverpool dominate the Gunners at Anfield

Observations as Liverpool dominate the Gunners at Anfield

Liverpool drubbed a listless Arsenal team as the attack ran riot for the Reds. The front three took their well-deserved goals and could have easily scored half a dozen tonight. Read on for my key observations from the game. The Line-up Surprise There was an equal measure of shock and surprise as Simon Mignolet was dropped altogether from the matchday squad, to be replaced by Karius in the line up. This was just the third game in the league, so …
Analysing Gini Wijnaldum's Disappearing Act

Analysing Gini Wijnaldum's Disappearing Act

After having a fairly decent debut season and scoring numerous meaningful goals, Gini Wijnaldum has developed a decent reputation amongst Liverpool fans thus far. Gini's first season playing under Klopp resulted in a return of 6 goals and 9 assists in the Premier League as well as strong performances in the so-called 'big games' against Liverpool's title rivals. However, although the season is just a few games old, his start to the 17/18 campaign hasn't been good enough and it's …
Liverpool’s forgotten man in the middle - Joe Allen

Liverpool’s forgotten man in the middle - Joe Allen

Joe Allen was always going to face an uphill battle ever since Brendan Rodgers labelled him “the Welsh Xavi” on the now infamous ‘Being Liverpool’ mockumentary documentary. Motor-mouth Rodgers clearly didn’t help Allen with such fanciful comparisons, but it’s another quote from his international manager, Chris Coleman, which underlines his qualities. “Joe is a great player. He's so important to the way we want to play – stopping attacks, linking our defensive play, linking to forwards. "He's so intelligent, incredibly …
