Adam Lallana could be deployed in 'Jorginho' role next season says Klopp

Adam Lallana was given another run at the base of Liverpool's midfield, in what Jurgen Klopp called the 'Jorginho' role, during the first half of Liverpool's 3-1 win at Bradford City on Sunday. Klopp experimented with Lallana in this position for the second half of Liverpool's win at Prenton Park last Thursday and wanted to see the former Southampton player in the same role again at Bradford. Two goals from James Milner (one penalty) and another Rhian Brewster strike gave …
Why another loan makes sense for Marko Grujic

Why another loan makes sense for Marko Grujic

When you’re in the 22-24-year age bracket as a footballer, you come to a crossroads. No longer a youth player able to bide your time and develop at a steady pace, there’s a growing awareness that the clock is ticking - you either cut it or you don’t. Where consecutive loan spells would usually spell trouble for such players - see Ryan Kent and Harry Wilson, both of whom face uncertain futures at Anfield with a reduced hope of ultimately …
Adam Lallana reaches do-or-die moment at Liverpool

Adam Lallana reaches do-or-die moment at Liverpool

Adam Lallana is one of those Liverpool players you dare not criticise. He has a legion of followers who have admired him from the moment he traded Southampton for Liverpool and any negativity in his direction is treated with ire. In many ways, he is the reverse Dejan Lovren, who for all his numerous faults as a centre-back, only has to misplace one pass before his detractors unfairly appear with pitchforks in hand. It's now five years since Lallana arrived …
Ruthless Reds: How Liverpool Can Build on a Sixth European Cup

Ruthless Reds: How Liverpool Can Build on a Sixth European Cup

Having still not come down from the high of watching the mighty Reds lift number six, it's easy to cast a sentimental judgement on the squad which gave us a night to remember in Madrid. However, this summer is not a time for Liverpool to rest on their laurels. From winning the Champions League in 2005 to finishing second in the league in 2008/09 and 2013/14, the Reds have found themselves in extremely strong positions in the past but we've …
Adam Lallana - The Last Cruyff Turn

Adam Lallana - The Last Cruyff Turn

We did it! Liverpool Football Club is the champion of Europe. It's been a week now and I still can't get my head around how the club went from embarrassing Steven Gerrard on his farewell tour (losing a combined 2-9 to Crystal Palace and Stoke in his last game at Anfield and his last game for the club, plus the FA Cup exit at the hands of Aston Villa was nothing short of an embarrassment) to last Saturday. The change …

Liverpool's Adam Lallana says he has no intentions of leaving

Liverpool may have announced the departures of Daniel Sturridge and Alberto Moreno this week but midfielder Adam Lallana insists he will not be joining them in leaving Anfield this summer. The 31-year-old creative midfielder hasn't played for The Reds since starting in Liverpool's 2-1 Premier League win at Fulham back in March. Plagued by injuries, Lallana has only started six league games in the last two seasons under Jurgen Klopp but he feels that if he can get back to …

With possibly six games to go this season, do we know Liverpool's best midfield trio?

As Liverpool's season reaches boiling point, Jurgen Klopp has some big, big decisions to make regarding the midfield heartbeat of The Reds' team for the remaining games.

The seven midfielders available to Herr Klopp are Fabinho, Jordan Henderson, Gini Wijnaldum, Naby Keita, James Milner, Adam …
Out of Contract Porto Stars Would Energise Liverpool Midfield

Out of Contract Porto Stars Would Energise Liverpool Midfield

Liverpool take on Porto next week in their Champions League second leg encounter at the Estádio do Dragão, but the match offers an extra degree of interest. Porto midfielders, Yacine Brahimi and Héctor Herrera, are both out of contract this summer and could possibly be destined for Anfield next season. Liverpool have missed the attacking midfield flair of Philippe Coutinho this season and have yet to replace the iconic playmaker. Goals have been hard to come by from midfield as …
Liverpool 2 Porto 0 - Man Of The Match: Say Hello To My Little Friend

Liverpool 2 Porto 0 - Man Of The Match: Say Hello To My Little Friend

Jurgen Klopp is bringing out a secret weapon at the business end of the season that every opposing manager sorta knew that he had, but he wasn’t using it, so maybe there was a problem with it… who knows. Point is, Southampton and Porto walk in the door and Klopp says, “say hello to my little friend!” The little friend being one, Naby Keita, who is literally quite small, but he is capable of mowing down the opposition like Tony …
