Livin' with Vida Lovren - Reds seek second Croatian

Livin' with Vida Lovren - Reds seek second Croatian

Liverpool has several up and down performers, but their most mercurial has been on a helluva high since the calendars turned to 2018. The World Cup has been no exception, as Croatia have made the elite eight, allowing only two goals in four matches. Dejan Lovren’s stock has risen so high apparently that Liverpool have begun to consider transfer deals for anyone in his radius. According to reports out of Turkey, Lovren’s back line buddy, Domagoj Vida has been the …
Emre Can - The Apparent Heir to Steven Gerrard?

Emre Can - The Apparent Heir to Steven Gerrard?

The Germany U21's manager Horst Hrubesch told us all yesterday that Emre Can's future at Liverpool was in midfield. This despite being Mr Versatile in his debut season at the club, this to the detriment of his form.

Liverpool v Besiktas | Europa League Preview

Don’t mention the Champions League... ...except perhaps when giving a timely reminder that this season will be the first in which the winners of the Europa League gain automatic qualification for Europe’s premier competition the following season. Would it be better for Liverpool to concentrate their efforts solely on the league and attempt to qualify via finishing in the top four? Or should they take their chances in this second rate European cup competition? It’s a situation where Liverpool appear to …
