Carvalho: Too Early to Call it, but Limited Chances to Shine

Carvalho: Too Early to Call it, but Limited Chances to Shine

It can be tough as a youngster in Liverpool’s first team squad. For all the talk about the crowd being forgiving and encouraging youth, the first half of the campaign has meant that the pressures of reality have seen that forgotten on occasions. Time and patience tend to give way to instant judgement and Fabio Carvalho has been a recipient on occasions. The next six months will be key in the 20 year old’s development at Anfield. Whilst no sweeping …
Liverpool vs Napoli: Full XI or Kids?

Liverpool vs Napoli: Full XI or Kids?

Liverpool's 3-0 win over Ajax on Wednesday night clinched their spot in the knockout round of the UCL. This puts Liverpool in a familiar position: one game left to play, with nothing on the line. In the extremely rare event that Liverpool beat Napoli by 4, Liverpool would finish first in Group A. However, in any other result, the final table standings remain unchanged, with Napoli on top of the group, and the Reds in second. This brings up one …
Do Liverpool need an attacker?

Do Liverpool need an attacker?

All of the focus has been on whether or not Liverpool need midfield reinforcements over recent weeks. The attack has been somewhat neglected.  It is one of those areas for the Reds that, on paper, looks well stocked. In reality, though, it is a little light. At surface level, Jurgen Klopp has five senior attackers at his disposal in Mohamed Salah, Diogo Jota, Luis Diaz, Roberto Firmino and Darwn Nunez. He also possesses Fabio Carvalho and Harvey Elliott could play …
Be Patient, The Best Is Yet To Come

Be Patient, The Best Is Yet To Come

When Andy Robertson signed from Hull City, it took nearly half a season for him to work his way into the first team of Liverpool. Albie Moreno was outperforming his expected levels, and the fact that Virgil Van Dijk was marshalling him, meant he was thriving at left back. Robbo was seen as a cheap option (compared to the inflated Ben Chilwell), and his signing didn’t move the needle much. His cost was basically recouped in its entirety, as Hull …
Fabio Carvalho - The Endgame Won’t Alter

Fabio Carvalho - The Endgame Won’t Alter

The start of this winter transfer window was full of frustration, as the entire fanbase were concerned that FSG would never back any January purchases. Then, much like the past Fabinho deal, a target arose, and was swiftly announced as a red. The speed and confidence with how the deal was confirmed was beyond satisfying, and should point to a more aggressive transfer policy. The signing of the Columbian international, Luis Diaz, was both unexpected and spectacular. The rumblings of …
Who is Liverpool transfer target Fabio Carvalho?

Who is Liverpool transfer target Fabio Carvalho?

Fabio Carvalho is set to stay with Fulham this month, but he could be a Liverpool player once this season comes to an end. Marco Silva doesn’t want to sell him, but his contract is almost up and the Reds are believed to be favourites for his signature.  So what is all the fuss about? Again, the first thing to flag here is that the sample size isn't the largest - just 1,150 minutes in the Championship. It makes him …
Should Liverpool Sign Fulham’s 19-year-old Star?

Should Liverpool Sign Fulham’s 19-year-old Star?

Recent reports indicate that Liverpool is facing competition from West Ham and Leeds United over the possibility of signing Fábio Carvalho, the Portuguese superstar currently playing in the Championship. The 19-year-old represents the Three Lions at the youth international level. Carvalho joined Fulham’s academy in 2014 and has since then rapidly progressed within the club to reach the main team. At the time of writing, Carvalho tallies eight goals and two assists in 17 appearances in the Championship and is one of the key …
Liverpool On Red Alert For European Dropouts

Liverpool On Red Alert For European Dropouts

With the international break upon us, it’s as good a time as any to take stock of the situations at some of the other Champions League clubs with an eye towards surprise players who might become available in the January window from clubs that are likely to be dropping out of the competition. Keeping in mind Liverpool’s preferred player profile, the potential targets are fairly easy to pick out, but there will be massive competition for many of these prospects …
