Klopp Creating Liverpool Siege Mentality

Klopp Creating Liverpool Siege Mentality

Jurgen Klopp reneged on entering into the transfer market this summer to reinforce his first team. Despite links to several players, including Nicolas Pepe and Bruno Fernandes, the German elected to keep his powder dry and not add ready-made first-team options to his squad. Legitimate arguments were made that the European Champions needed to add depth to their squad in the left-back and forward line positions, in particular. But the Anfield club -- doubtlessly under instructions from their hug wielding …
The confusing rhetoric around Liverpool's stature

The confusing rhetoric around Liverpool's stature

So the new Premier League season is almost a week old already and, if I'm being honest, I've got my first moan to have out with the world. To say that things got off to a perfect start for Liverpool would be a little bit of a stretch - as losing Alisson Becker to a freak calf injury on Friday's 4-1 win over Norwich cast somewhat of a shadow over the victory. But that aside, it was pretty plain sailing …
Pre Season Selections Give Hints To Pecking Order

Pre Season Selections Give Hints To Pecking Order

Liverpool continued their lacklustre pre-season with a 3-0 defeat to Napoli at the home of Scottish Rugby, Murrayfield, yesterday. The performance, as had been the case in the previous three games on the summer tour of the United States -- against Borussia Dortmund, Sevilla and Sporting CP -- was poor, as the Reds looked disjointed in both attack and defence. The European Champions depart for Evian, France for a training camp this Monday, and manager Jurgen Klopp has promised that …
Why taking Coutinho back makes a lot of sense

Why taking Coutinho back makes a lot of sense

It's the transfer rumour that just won't go away. The will he, won't he. The shall we, shan't we. Does the heart rule the head or is it the other way around. The summer saga (for want of a better word) for Liverpool fans this summer is whether their fallen hero, Philippe Coutinho, will make a dramatic return to Anfield after what has proven to be an ill-fated 18 months at Barcelona. After raking in the capital as a result …
Andy Lonergan joins Reds in USA as emergency backup goalkeeper

Andy Lonergan joins Reds in USA as emergency backup goalkeeper

Former Preston North End and Bolton Wanderers goalkeeper Andy Lonergan will join Jurgen Klopp's Liverpool squad on their trip of the USA. Lonergan, currently a free agent, was drafted in due to Liverpool's current lack of fit goalkeepers. First-choice goalkeeper Alisson Becker is still enjoying his summer break after winning the Copa America with Brazil. Simon Mignolet is the highest-ranking stopper who is available to Klopp for the pre-season friendlies. Young Irishman Caoimhin Kelleher and Vitezslaz Jaros both out injured …
Why Liverpool Must Spend This Summer

Why Liverpool Must Spend This Summer

In any other era of football history, a 97 point haul in the league would guarantee the league title. Unfortunately for Liverpool, this is the era of Manchester City and their state-sponsored, law-flouting spending and their club record points tally wasn’t sufficient to claim the clubs first league since the 1989-90 season. Liverpool’s squad, as the league table indicates and the Champions League victory further reinforces, is excellent. It is, however, not deep enough. Until the required quality is added …
The key areas Klopp will strengthen in the transfer window

The key areas Klopp will strengthen in the transfer window

Alas, it's here: silly season. The transfer rumour mill is in full swing and the window hasn't even been open for a week. It will undoubtedly be another crucial window for Jürgen Klopp and Liverpool, as they look to cement their place as contenders to Manchester City's Premier League throne. Rumours are already rife about who will and won't be joining the Reds over the coming weeks, and whether it will or won't be a busy window again this year. …
Alisson: Delivering Big Moments In Liverpool's Title Bid

Alisson: Delivering Big Moments In Liverpool's Title Bid

Sunday's 2-0 win at Cardiff was enough to push Liverpool to 88 points thus far, their highest points tally of the Premier League era with three games still to play. Crucially, it also means the pressure remains firmly on Manchester City, with the coming week seeing them travel to Old Trafford before a potentially tricky away trip to Burnley. Meanwhile, you'd think the visit of Huddersfield at Anfield would be nothing other than a routine win for The Reds, enabling …
Alisson Becker has room for improvement

Alisson Becker has room for improvement

After year upon year of painful and debilitating mediocrity between the sticks, Liverpool have felt the benefit of a top-drawer pair of hands this season. Alisson Becker has justified his (at the time) world-record price-tag but that does not mean he should be considered immune from criticism. Let's start by acknowledging just how good he is. The statistics illustrate this nicely. Alisson has 17 clean sheets in the Premier League, two clear of his nearest rival Ederson, he has conceded …
