Buyback On Brewster Benefits Both

Buyback On Brewster Benefits Both

The future of Rhian Brewster has proved to be a major talking point in the last few weeks. The talented forward enjoyed a strong pre-season for Liverpool, scoring three goals in two games, a run of form that led some fans to suggest that the Reds ought to keep the England youth international for the upcoming campaign instead of letting him depart on another loan. Mike McGrath of The Telegraph, however, reported that the English champions -- who were initially …
Could Suarez be Liverpool's modern-day Litmanen?

Could Suarez be Liverpool's modern-day Litmanen?

Life comes at you fast as a footballer, with your reputation never too far from taking a battering. One minute you can be the flavour of the month, earning an infinite amount of praise, and the next you can be a washed-up has-been who has little else to offer. Luis Suarez finds himself in that very position, having experienced a tough season at Barcelona that ultimately looks like sealing his exit from the club. Only six years ago he was …
Time for Brewster to Oust Ineffective Origi

Time for Brewster to Oust Ineffective Origi

On Thursday night, two Liverpool strikers suffered very different fortunes. It was an evening to forget for the Reds, whose lack of intensity and focus was plain to see in a rather insipid defeat to Arsenal at the Emirates. As a last throw of the dice in the second half, Jurgen Klopp turned to Divock Origi as one of his substitutes, looking for another moment of inspiration from the Belgian. What occurred was a cameo that has become far too …
Update On Rhian Brewster

Update On Rhian Brewster

Liverpool have been following the fortunes of Swansea City lately, checking up on the progress of young Reds' loanee, Rhian Brewster. The 20-year old forward, who joined the Swans on loan in January, has taken to life in the Championship -- his first regular exposure to adult football -- like a duck to water. At the time of writing, Brewster has scored nine goals in 18 appearances as the Welsh side look to qualify for the Championship playoffs. With the …
Arsenal 2-1 Liverpool: Observations from an inexplicable defeat

Arsenal 2-1 Liverpool: Observations from an inexplicable defeat

Liverpool have cruised to the Premier League title with such a blissful ease this season that rival fans will see this immensely frustrating run of games as just deserts. On Saturday, the overly-merciful Reds were the victims of a vintage smash-and-grab. Here, they served up victory to a rotated Arsenal side on a silver platter. It's now two wins and two defeats in the five games since they became champions. Liverpool lose without playing badly... again It would be outrageous …
The Ideal Next Step for Curtis Jones

The Ideal Next Step for Curtis Jones

It’s that time of the year once again where attention turns to the transfer market. The January transfer window is one that Jürgen Klopp tends to shy away from where possible, but Virgil Van Dijk and Takumi Minamino are examples of him willing to use it in exceptional circumstances. However, whilst any further purchases in January are unlikely, it is possible that a couple of the clubs promising youngsters will go out on loan.  Rhian Brewster has already been touted …
The future's bright for Klopp's young mentality monsters

The future's bright for Klopp's young mentality monsters

Different team, same old story. To say Liverpool's progression to the Carabao Cup quarter-final was a rollercoaster would be a huge understatement after the 5-4 penalty win following a 5-5 draw against Arsenal at Anfield. It was a night where Klopp placed his faith in youth once more and Liverpool's stars of the future repaid that faith with a vibrant - if a little harem scarem - win. The Reds lined up with senior players such as Milner, Lallana, Oxlade-Chamberlain, …

Harvey Elliott is Missing Something...

Harvey Elliott is Missing Something...

Typically, when a player as young as sixteen is standing out in senior football you can invariably bank on one of two things being immediately evident. Either: a) The kid has a natural physique well beyond his years or; b) He possesses absolutely electric pace. Yet, for all the acclaim that Harvey Elliott’s first team bow for the Reds has rightly drawn, neither of those things are reasons for the understandable wave of optimism surrounding his inaugural Liverpool performance. In …
Six games, 18 days: The period where Klopp's squad will be acutely assessed

Six games, 18 days: The period where Klopp's squad will be acutely assessed

Six games, 18 days. Forget the 100 per cent start to the new league season, this is the period where the bulk of Jurgen Klopp's squad will be put through the wringer. The European champions will barely have an opportunity to breathe once the team are reunited following the international break and the return to club football. Questions were raised over the manager's decision to not dip into the transfer market for fresh ammunition, and this will be the period …
