Salah's Swan Song?

Salah's Swan Song?

After Mohamed Salah started the 2020/21 campaign with a red-hot performance against Leeds, is it time for us Liverpool fans to recognise the real possibility that this season may be his last at the club? Salah joined Liverpool from Serie A side AS Roma in the summer of 2017 after Jürgen Klopp was convinced he was the right fit for his squad by The Reds' scouting team. Speaking just months after Salah's arrival at the club, Klopp said:
"Our scouting …
Potential Solutions To Fill The Origi Role

Potential Solutions To Fill The Origi Role

Divock Origi is a strange case. The Belgian forward has cemented himself into Liverpool club folklore with his contributions in last season's victorious Champions League campaign. The 25-year old scored a brace in the Reds' miraculous 4-0 second leg semi-final tie against Barcelona, sealing their passage to a second consecutive European Cup final. Then, in the showpiece itself, Origi smashed a low left-footed drive past Hugo Lloris to put the final nail in Tottenham's coffin, rubberstamping a 2-0 win which …
Would replacing Wijnaldum with Thiago make Liverpool stronger?

Would replacing Wijnaldum with Thiago make Liverpool stronger?

A quiet summer is expected at Liverpool, as Jurgen Klopp again remains content with his squad, give or take the odd departure or new face. Former Southampton trio Nathaniel Clyne, Dejan Lovren and Adam Lallana have all moved on, having become symbols of Liverpool's past, while Norwich's Jamal Lewis could be a rare addition in the coming weeks. If there are two soap operas that may provide Reds supporters with some transfer drama, however, it is futures of Gini Wijnaldum …
Can Liverpool answer the challenges ahead?

Can Liverpool answer the challenges ahead?

It was little more than a year ago when I risked being the party pooper. With many still celebrating winning ‘old big ears’ for a sixth time, I suggested that in true Ronnie Moran fashion it was time for the players to put the medals away. I asked the question as to how hungry the team was for further success.  It wasn’t that I believed they were about to spend an entire season, with cigars in hand, dining out on …
Exciting Times To Be A Red - Drink It In

Exciting Times To Be A Red - Drink It In

The date is Tuesday, 1st May, 1990. Liverpool have beaten Arthur Cox's Derby County 1-0 at Anfield. Having already wrapped up the league title a week prior following a 2-1 win over Queens Park Rangers, the Anfield faithful were preparing to witness Steve McMahon lift the trophy up in the air - for the nineteenth time. Such was the bar that Kenny Dalglish's relentless Reds set throughout their heyday in the 1970s and 1980s, winning First Division Championships were no …
A Full Circle

A Full Circle

I have been a Liverpool fan since 2002 when the football scene in Malaysia was booming. Everyone in school had a favourite English football team. The earliest game I can recall is the one where we lost to Man United 2-1 when the ball went through Dudek's legs to Forlan. Yeah that game! That’s my earliest memory of LFC. From then to now, from Hyypia to Gerrard to Hendo, the journey has been amazing. Other clubs may have seen more …
Why this Liverpool team is one of the best ever

Why this Liverpool team is one of the best ever

So, it’s already happening. When Liverpool won the Champions League last season, the narrative from rivals fans was that they needed to win the Premier League to be considered a great team. Now that the Reds have ended their 30-year wait, the goalposts are once again being moved. I won’t name the person or the show because I’m fairly certain they come out with these sorts of takes for attention. If you really want to watch it, I’m sure you’ll …

Appreciating the brilliance of game-changing Alisson

Appreciating the brilliance of game-changing Alisson

The last 20 minutes of last year's Champions League final are easy to forget, barring Divock Origi's trophy-clinching goal in the dying embers. It was a match to fall asleep to for the neutral, with little happening for vast chunks of proceedings, as Liverpool showed their experience and outmaneuvered an ineffective Tottenham side. In hindsight, however, the Reds were given a few scares as the minutes ticked by at the Wanda Metropolitano, as they lay agonisingly close to European Cup …
Cavani Liverpool's Werner Alternative?

Cavani Liverpool's Werner Alternative?

The ongoing global pandemic has already had a big impact on football finances. With games returning behind closed doors, clubs have been deprived of matchday revenues, in terms of hospitality, ticket sales, and other streams of income, such as club shop sales. Additionally, and more impactfully, television rebates — even given the fact they have been pushed out for another year — will hamstring many teams’ abilities to flex their financial muscles in the transfer market. Liverpool have already felt …
