Main Mané: Why Sadio shouldn't be overlooked for Player of the Year

Main Mané: Why Sadio shouldn't be overlooked for Player of the Year

When Liverpool signed Sadio Mané back in 2016 for £34 million, many onlookers scoffed at the price tag. I must admit, although I didn't quite scoff, I was unsure if the Senegalese was worth the hefty investment. He looked like a promising player, but I wasn't sure if he'd have the desired impact at Anfield. Fast forward four years, and my scepticism couldn't have been more misplaced. Liverpool's number 10 started off well with a stunning debut goal against Arsenal …

Are Leicester a threat to Liverpool's title charge?

Are Leicester a threat to Liverpool's title charge?

Picture the scene: It's mid-August, the Premier League season is about to get underway and you're told that Man City beating Leicester might be a good thing four months later. Unfathomable, right? Yet here we are, 16 matches into the league campaign, with Brendan Rodgers doing his very best to upset his former club. Liverpool continued their outrageous form last weekend, making it 46 points from a possible 48 this season. On top of that, they are the only points …

Why Liverpool should sign Dele Alli

Why Liverpool should sign Dele Alli

In all honesty, Dele Alli should already be a Liverpool player and had Steven Gerrard been a little more punctual then he would be. Before Alli had even held talks with Tottenham, the Reds made their move to land him. Brendan Rodgers had talks with MK Dons boss Karl Robinson and a package was being worked out to secure the services of the teenage star. As Alli revealed during an appearance on Football Focus a couple of years back, the …
Muchas Gracias - How Liverpool upset the population of Barcelona

Muchas Gracias - How Liverpool upset the population of Barcelona

Three days after Liverpool emphatically turned around a three-goal deficit to reach the Champions League final, I arrived in Barcelona for a short trip still ecstatic from the result. What I learned just moments after getting off the plane was that this result hasn’t just hurt Messi and the rest of the team it’s hurt a whole city. Getting into a taxi outside the airport the driver immediately noticed my Liverpool jersey before venting his frustrations in a Spanish slur. …
100 Years of Bob Paisley and the Danger of Comparisons

100 Years of Bob Paisley and the Danger of Comparisons

Before the home win at Crystal Palace—a game which saw Red hearts beat all the faster for the first time in a while—the ground paid tribute to Bob Paisley, who was born 100 years ago this week. At half-time, Anfield witnessed a cavalcade of his best players such as Kenny Dalglish, Graeme Souness, Jimmy Case, Phil Neal and, greatest of all, Ian Callaghan, come on to the pitch to rightly praise the soft-spoken Geordie. I’ve no doubt that such a …
Milner is this generations McAllister

Milner is this generations McAllister

Cast your minds back to the start of the 2015/16 season. Brendan Rodgers was at the helm of the club and Liverpool had just signed James Milner on a free transfer. The former Manchester City midfielder arrived for nothing having run down his deal at the Etihad but his £150,000-per-week deal raised a few eyebrows, as did the fact he was joining the Reds to play as a centre-midfielder. It was a role he'd played intermittently during his career but …
Integrating Fabinho and the Need for Patience

Integrating Fabinho and the Need for Patience

Patience isn’t a word that gets heeded much in the modern era of football. Instant gratification has been normalised and expected, and signings are often cast aside as “flops” in as short a space as six months. And that’s fine because some signings don’t work. But, if one casts their mind back to the final season of Brendan Rodgers’ tenure, you’ll notice that Liverpool’s current number nine was far from the maniacal presser and vital fulcrum that he would become …
Red Rant: Foxy Klopp Not Ready to Contend

Red Rant: Foxy Klopp Not Ready to Contend

Ron Burgundy had three vulnerabilities in life... women, his dog Baxter, and the fact that he would read whatever was on the teleprompter. Our manager has a similar tick. If Jordan Henderson is available, he'll put him on the team sheet. It didn't matter that Emre Can was miles better. Hendo was in the team. It didn't matter that Gini Wijnaldum was man of the match against Brighton playing the 'six.' Move him out for the captain. A £40 million …
