Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain compared to LFC's midfield

Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain compared to LFC's midfield

Liverpool's new signing, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, costing a reported 35-40m GBP fee, will arrive and provide some much-needed squad depth and quality. For a midfield, that only three games ago, I, and many other fans criticised for not being proactive or creative enough, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain seems a step in the right direction for the club in addressing that issue. However, after two barnstorming midfield efforts - against Hoffenheim and Arsenal - in which Can, Wijnaldum and Henderson all looked imperious, where …
Liverpool beat Arsenal by four, let the season begin!

Liverpool beat Arsenal by four, let the season begin!

Arsenal rolled over like a puppy as Liverpool produced a devastating attacking display to whack the Gunners by four on Sunday evening. Jürgen Klopp's side were improved at the back, impressive in midfield and imperious going forward. The pre-match decision to drop, rest, whatever, Simon Mignolet for Loris Karius was much talked about, but mattered little thanks to fantastic display's from those in front of the German. Joe Gomez again filled in capably for Trent Alexander-Arnold, filling in himself for …
Assessing Liverpool's Midfield For The Impending Season

Assessing Liverpool's Midfield For The Impending Season

Much has been made of Liverpool’s potential business this summer, particularly in the midfield department. While Jurgen Klopp has plenty of quality options to choose from, with his side achieving a top-four finish and subsequent return to the Champions League, a much busier fixture list will bring heavier demands. That will put more pressure on his midfield options and could well see some additions over the next few months as a result. Should that be the case, what is it …
Transfermageddon: Liverpool's Doomsday Plan

Transfermageddon: Liverpool's Doomsday Plan

A week from August.  Less than three weeks from Liverpool’s opening match of the season. The Reds have signed one of the best forwards in Italy, a promising young left-back, and stole a striker prospect from a rival. Our two biggest targets in terms of value and publicity have become quite elusive to acquire while at the same time, two European giants, Barca and Juve, are now circling ominously over midfield stars, Phil Coutinho and Emre Can. Tick tock.  Tick …
Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain Would Be A Shrewd Piece of Business

Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain Would Be A Shrewd Piece of Business

With Arsenal stalling on a new deal for Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, Liverpool are among a number of clubs linked with a summer move. That’s caused somewhat of a stir from the fan-base, with the reaction varying from apprehension to excitement. If the Ox decides to seek pastures new, Netbet have Liverpool as the favourites to land the attacker. Joining Southampton at the age of seven, Chamberlain propelled himself into the first-team picture in 2010, making his debut at the age of 16. An …
Why a Deal for Oxlade-Chamberlain Doesn't Add Up

Why a Deal for Oxlade-Chamberlain Doesn't Add Up

The link between Liverpool and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain is one that has stuck around, despite Jürgen Klopp himself denying it, and it’s one that has created a lot of debate amongst Liverpool supporters. Unlike Salah, Van Dijk or Lacazette, who all were almost universally hyped up as soon as the link was made, reactions to the Ox have varied from delight, to apprehension, to disbelief, and even confusion. Certainly it’s a signing that is not straightforwardly good or bad and reaction …
Go and get... Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain

Go and get... Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain

Jurgen Klopp has been tight lipped and dismissive of possible January additions, but a raid on Arsenal could see a Liverpool title charge gain further momentum. Option Despite mixed opinions of Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, his acquisition into the current squad would be a boost of much needed resources. In an attacking sense, Klopp is in need of signings with main man Sadio Mane away at the AFCON. Oxlade-Chamberlain would not only plaster the deficit of losing Mane, but with European football …
Sadio Mané's Absence and Liverpool FC's Options

Sadio Mané's Absence and Liverpool FC's Options

Sadio Mané has been a surprise blessing for many Liverpool fans. Despite his inconsistencies from past seasons still being seen in shades thus far, the Senegalese wide-player has been a great addition to Jürgen Klopp’s Liverpool side. Needless to say, he’s gone beyond proving himself to the Anfield faithful, many of whom had doubts of varying degrees with consideration to his price tag and especially given that he’s yet another Southampton recruit. In the next couple of weeks, Mane heads …
Spurs v Liverpool: Key Battles

Spurs v Liverpool: Key Battles

The demons of the Burnley defeat are still around, but Liverpool did well in avoiding a potential banana skin in the EFL Cup against Burton with a resounding win. It gets a lot tougher for the Reds over the weekend, with a visit to White Hart Lane, a ground on which we've seen some crazy highs and crushing lows. Spurs have made a sluggish start to the season, opening with a draw against Everton and an unconvincing win against Palace, where …
FSG Have Failed to Deliver

FSG Have Failed to Deliver

If ever there was a headline to cause debate this is it. No doubt many will read the title of this piece and either strongly agree or disagree without reading the bloody article. In the last few years I have strongly defended FSG and also given them heavy criticism. There are things they have done very well and things they have done very poorly. Let’s begin with the positives. On 15th October 2010, much to all our relief, FSG, then …
