Why Liverpool Need: Mahmoud Dahoud

Why Liverpool Need: Mahmoud Dahoud

In times before the great Liverpool ascendancy of season 2016/17; before Jürgen’s rampant Reds stormed into the Premier League landscape and claimed it as their stomping ground, there was a 20 year-old starlet coming through the ranks in Borussia Mönchengladbach. It was hardly a well-kept secret that Klopp, in his first summer transfer window at the club, courted the young Syrian-born German under-21 international. And he should do it again come January. To retain their status as Premier League title …
Memphis Depay - Liverpool's Best Failure

Memphis Depay - Liverpool's Best Failure

Roughly sixteen months ago, Liverpool social media were furious once again, as we always are during every transfer window, at the club’s failure to bring in an explosive talent with quality, and at such a tender age in Memphis Depay. Coming to Liverpool would’ve made the most perfect sense in our eyes, well, in mine at least. To me, he would be the best replacement for Raheem Sterling, who’s departure from Anfield was all but concluded. The Memphis Depay transfer saga …
The Dejan Lovren question

The Dejan Lovren question

The question surrounding the transformation undergone by Liverpool defender Dejan Lovren is not only complex, but his upturn in fortune is also a mystery to many a Reds fan. I would like to cast your minds back to August 29, 2015 and Liverpool had just been humiliated, humbled and simply outclassed by a West Ham team, that resulted in a 3-0 Anfield defeat. The fan inquest that shortly followed West Ham’s first win at Anfield since 1963, solely (and on …
Klopp or not - Liverpool forever inconsistent

Klopp or not - Liverpool forever inconsistent

Set the scene. Liverpool are  clear at the top of the Premier League table, Luis Suarez and Daniel Sturridge are on course to become the league's top goal-scorers and Steven Gerrard has had statistically one of his strongest seasons in a Liverpool shirt. It was all going so well for the Reds in the 2013-14 season. There were poor performances though against Aston Villa and West Bromwich Albion where Liverpool were kept to a draw but then all of a …
Finding an Alternative to Moreno Isn't that Easy

Finding an Alternative to Moreno Isn't that Easy

Odds are if you ask a random Liverpool fan what part of their squad needs an upgrade they'll say the left-back position. Alberto Moreno is the current incumbent of the role and despite being at the club for two seasons he's still yet to really nail the position down as his own. A series of questionable performances has done nothing to endear himself to the Liverpool faithful and after an arse clenching opening 45 minutes against Arsenal it appears as though …
Liverpool 2016/17 - Season Preview and Predictions

Liverpool 2016/17 - Season Preview and Predictions

Going from “we’re going to win the league” after beating Barcelona 4-0, to the outlook being doom and gloom within just 24 hours after losing to Mainz by the same scoreline is precisely why I try not to read too much into pre-season friendlies. They are essentially just for fitness, integrating new players and coaches trying out things from the training pitch in a match situation. Some things can be taken from pre-season, good and bad, but the opening Premier …
Who is Liverpool's Leader?

Who is Liverpool's Leader?

There are two types of leadership. First would be a leader who leads by default. He’s the type of personality that is allowed to lead or dictate only by his rank. Then you have, in my opinion, the true leader. One who leads and is followed through merit by gaining the utmost respect from his colleagues, teammates, and even a ranking officer.  And you need that on the pitch. You need someone who would only need to stare at you, …
Mamadou Sakho: President of the Liverpool Country

Mamadou Sakho: President of the Liverpool Country

As things stand, Mamadou Sakho is without a doubt, the most loved player of Liverpool Football Club. Since arriving from Paris Saint-Germain in the summer of 2013, he has stolen the hearts of Liverpool fans with his amusing, humble personality. I remember once he hopped into a stand filled with Liverpool fans, and acted like a ridiculous fan boy, screaming at Skrtel, Lucas, and Adam Lallana for an autograph until the latter finally made his way to him and signed …
Relive Liverpool's route to the Europa League Final

Relive Liverpool's route to the Europa League Final

Liverpool 0-1 Grazer AK – 28th September, 2000. Liverpool 0-0 Rapid Bucharest – 24th August, 2004. Remember them? Nope, me neither. Rarely do European campaigns begin with barnstorming victories and scintillating football. The two aforementioned results won’t live long in the memory, but the Reds ended each season with European silverware to their name. The same could be true if we overcome the Europa League specialists Sevilla on Wednesday, but it’s only in recent months that Reds all over the …
Guess Who's Back ...Back Again: Liverpool FC

Guess Who's Back ...Back Again: Liverpool FC

No, the title isn't autobiographical; although admittedly, it has been quite a while since my last piece for Anfield Index. What am I on about then? Well, I think it's pretty obvious; I'm sure you'll agree, it's time to talk about the resurgence of Liverpool FC. Days before the first leg of the Borussia Dortmund quarter final, I found myself quite perturbed, somewhat pissed off, and fairly bemused at what I was hearing, and reading, from some, on how the …
