Liverpool Could See Ideal Player In Blind

Liverpool Could See Ideal Player In Blind

As football has hit the corona-virus induced pause button, the whirling world of transfer rumours shows no sign of slowing down. And despite the Bundesliga CEO, Christian Seifert, warning that the summer transfer window could collapse with the financial perils of the sports hiatus financially hamstringing clubs capabilities to spend big in the market, the likes of Liverpool -- who announced record profits, £42M, for the last financial year -- still have the means to land their targets. Although the …
Eredivisie wonderkid is the perfect forward for Liverpool

Eredivisie wonderkid is the perfect forward for Liverpool

Ajax lit up the Champions League last season, dismantling the very best before crashing out dramatically in the semi-final. They managed to keep hold of the majority of that team, only losing Frenkie de Jong and Matthijs de Ligt when many thought they'd be gutted. Yet despite this, they're already old news with all eyes firmly fixed on rivals PSV Eindhoven. Mark Van Bommel's side are joint-top of the Eredivisie alongside Ajax on 17 points after seven matches this term. …
Liverpool should return to sign La Liga starlet

Liverpool should return to sign La Liga starlet

In football, rejection often closes that particular chapter. Clubs won't continue to their pursuit if a player has made it clear they aren't keen on the move. Sometimes it's to do with pride. Other times it's because the world of football moves fast and teams can't wait around on the off chance a mind is changed. Liverpool, however, are one of the few teams who seem to leave the door slightly ajar if a move doesn't materialise first-time around. Countless …
Liverpool's Money Factory

Liverpool's Money Factory

Liverpool sold academy striker Bobby Duncan to Fiorentina after the Serie A side made an offer to sign the 18-year-old permanently. The Reds will reputedly pocket €2million upfront with a 20% sell-on fee for the former Manchester City underage player. Duncan wasn't the only player out the Anfield exit door on European Transfer Deadline Day. Ryan Kent joined Rangers -- who he spent last season on loan at -- for a fee in the region of £7,000,000. The English duo's …
Why claims Liverpool don't need players like de Ligt are wrong

Why claims Liverpool don't need players like de Ligt are wrong

There's been an unrivalled amount of chatter surrounding the future of Ajax's Matthijs de Ligt in recent weeks, with plenty of rumours linking him with a move to Anfield. However, reports in the past 48 hours seem to point toward the Dutch wonder kid joining PSG. There's also talk of Liverpool making moves for Lille's Nicolas Pepe and Sporting Lisbon's Bruno Fernandes. While it's difficult to quantify anything at this stage of 'silly season', one thing that we do know …
Why Matthijs De Ligt Should Sign For The Reds

Why Matthijs De Ligt Should Sign For The Reds

The race to sign 19-year-old Matthijs De Ligt has been widely debated already in this summer transfer window. Liverpool, Barcelona and others, have been reportedly interested in signing the highly-rated Dutch centre-back. As with any other transfer window, speculation and rumours on social media have complicated the situation with journalists, pundits and fans unsure of where De Ligt’s future lies. Even within the last few days, it has been reported that the centre-back is set to join Barcelona, without any …
Try wipe the smile from my face

Try wipe the smile from my face

Grinning at the wall as I stand at a urinal. It’s the litmus test for happiness - male happiness, at least. Not only was I trying to engage the lavatorial tilework in a joyous staring contest, but I was also making eye-contact with other men in this den of iniquity - trying to engage them in conversation about a football match. That’s unheard of, in my life, at least. It’s normally a case of getting in, doing what I’ve got …
Fabinho & Henderson stand tall on the biggest stage

Fabinho & Henderson stand tall on the biggest stage

Who else is still bouncing? Who else can’t think about anything apart from THAT game? Who else wouldn’t change this Liverpool team for the world? Tuesday night is seconded only to Istanbul for me, in terms of drama, passion and emotion, on a night that genuinely felt flat in my mind before kick-off. This time they really weren’t going to turn it around, were they? That Vincent Kompany stunner against Leicester had only further dampened spirits, following an extremely harsh …
Maybe No News Is Good News For Liverpool

Maybe No News Is Good News For Liverpool

Unbelievable. Well, I warned you, gentle reader. Our beloved model pro, one-game-at-a-time, controversy-eschewing Reds do not make for good copy when we are on a two-week mid-season break. So far, this morning, and Latest News has waited ALL morning, there has not been so much as a whiff of anything newsworthy. We were dangerously close to this becoming one of those dreaded opinion columns, y'know, like that Downey fella used to write, when the midday news dump brought a couple …

Bobby Adekanye in Profile: Not Another Wonderkid

Apparently he's a wonderkid, he's the next Arjen Robben, he's a future superstar. But actually for most Liverpool fans, he's an unknown. He may have brought the 'wonderkid' title with him, but the 16-year-old's off-field drama has attracted almost as much attention as his touted talents.
