Why Jadon Sancho is Liverpool's Next Step Forward

Why Jadon Sancho is Liverpool's Next Step Forward

Last week, this writer published a piece exploring how it is practically impossible to upgrade on this Liverpool team. Which, obviously, would make this piece seem slightly obtuse: why should the Reds pursue a very expensive winger if it won’t actually upgrade them? Well, despite currently being un-upgradeable: the best team in the world, reigning champions of Europe and the world, not to mention champions elect of England, there is always a way forward in football. Standing still, even when …

Klopp Commitment Great News For Liverpool Youth

Klopp Commitment Great News For Liverpool Youth

Jurgen Klopp delighted the Liverpool fan base last month when the news broke that the German had signed a new contract to keep him tied to the club until 2024. After delivering a sixth Champions League success, a 97 point Premier League campaign and, as it stands,  on course to guide the Reds to a record breaking domestic campaign, the former Borussia Dortmund coach renewing his deal at Anfield is brilliant news for the present day. There will be a …
Gini Wijnaldum: The real MVP of this Liverpool team

Gini Wijnaldum: The real MVP of this Liverpool team

If pressed to name Liverpool’s most important player, a case could be made for a number of the team. Virgil van Dijk and Alisson are often at the top of the pile, Fabinho entered the conversation after his dominant performances earlier on in the campaign while Roberto Firmino, Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mane can all make a claim to be Jurgen Klopp’s MVP. The latest name on that evergrowing list is Trent Alexander-Arnold. The young right-back is the creator-in-chief for …
Liverpool are Un-Upgradeable

Liverpool are Un-Upgradeable

Do Liverpool have a single area of their team that requires an upgrade? No. Well, that’s that then. However, just imagine thinking that at the beginning of the previous decade. Liverpool go into 2020 as not only the best team in England, but the most feared side in world football. Many discussions have been had as to how that exactly has come about: spending money in certain problem areas and then building around that core, innovating the fullback position so …
What if... Liverpool hadn't signed Divock Origi?

What if... Liverpool hadn't signed Divock Origi?

‘It’s Saturday night and I like the way you move, Divock Origi,’ chants the Kop as the loveable Belgian forward comes on the 84th minute for Roberto Firmino in a last-ditch attempt to get one up on local rivals Everton yet again. Less than 10 minutes later, Origi had scored one of the most bizarre goals you’re likely to see and his song on the terraces was changed to a Sunday night with the addition of an expletive or two. …
Minamino Signing Means New Liverpool Transfer Strategy

Minamino Signing Means New Liverpool Transfer Strategy

Pending a successful medical, Liverpool will sign Japan international Takumi Minamino from RB Salzburg in January. After impressing twice against the Reds in this season's Champions League group stage, the 24 year old will join £7.25M after the European Champions elected to trigger his paltry release clause. Capable of playing across the front three, off the striker or even as the most advanced central midfielder in a three, Minamino could well prove to be another shrewd piece of transfer business …
How Much Can Klopp's Liverpool Win?

How Much Can Klopp's Liverpool Win?

For a lot of Liverpool fans, it feels like waiting for the other shoe to drop. 16 wins out of 17 in the Premier League and topping their Champions’ League group, the Reds have suffered just one defeat across those two competitions, and ahead of the Club World Cup in Qatar, leave the Premier League with a 10 point lead, and their closest rivals – Manchester City and Leicester – play each other before the Reds’ return. The questions have …
The quiet man - Liverpool's acquisition of Takumi Minamino

The quiet man - Liverpool's acquisition of Takumi Minamino

In the 56th-minute of Liverpool's 4-3 win over Red Bull Salzburg at Anfield, Hee-Chan Hwang exploited the space on the left. Hwang wrapped his foot around the ball and put in a cross which would find its way to Takumi Minamino. The 24-year-old had been calling for it, arms raised, as he raced towards Liverpool's penalty area. With the pass travelling probably 40 yards to reach him, Minamino still had plenty of work to do. He kept his eyes on …
Moving On The Liverpool Way

Moving On The Liverpool Way

When it comes to advancing from the Champions League group stage, Liverpool refuse to do things the easy way. From Gerrard’s wonder strike against Olympiakos in 2004 to needing a result against Spartak Moscow in 2017 to Alisson’s amazing save against Napoli under the lights at Anfield in 2018, Liverpool love to keep things interesting on the final matchday. Thanks to more dropped points two weeks ago against Napoli, who are quickly becoming Liverpool’s Kryptonite, Jurgen’s men needed at least …
