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 …

Henderson and his Legacy

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 …
Liverpool's Wait Is Over

Liverpool's Wait Is Over

Finally, after what felt like an interminable wait, Liverpool Football Club are Champions of England once again. The Reds' 19th crown -- their first in the Premier League era -- is all the more impressive, given the club's recent boom and bust history; where a title challenge would inevitably be followed a season later by a calamitous collapse. The title tilt of 2001/2002 was followed by a meek 5th placed finish in 2002/2003, again owing to poor transfer market manoeuvring, …
Early Premier League win could help Liverpool retain it

Early Premier League win could help Liverpool retain it

With Premier League teams across the country leaping back on the horse to finish the 2019/20 season this week, there is much to play for. Liverpool require just six points to seal a first league title in 30 years, with teams such as Manchester United, Chelsea and Sheffield United scrapping for Champions League spots a few places below them. Further down the table, the likes of Aston Villa and Bournemouth will hope that the long-awaited 'Project Restart' will yield an …
Is forgotten man Minamino ready to star?

Is forgotten man Minamino ready to star?

What's been the best performance by an opposition player at Anfield this season? It's obvious, isn't it? Takumi Minamino's masterclass for Salzburg in the Champions League was a joy to watch at times, even if he was doing his best to rob Liverpool of group stage points. The Japanese caught the eye throughout on a balmy European night, scoring a superb volley and often running the show with subtle touches and endless running. The Reds ended up winning 4-3 in …
Do Liverpool need Philippe Coutinho?

Do Liverpool need Philippe Coutinho?

It’s that time of the year again. With transfers being discussed, Philippe Coutinho is once again being linked with a return to Liverpool. It’s been a regular occurrence ever since he forced his way out of Anfield to secure a dream move to Barcelona. But that quickly turned into a nightmare.  He was nothing more than a vanity purchase for the La Liga giants. After initially being rejected, they embraced their inner Michael Jordan and took it as a personal …
Jordan Henderson: Liverpool's Linchpin Leader

Jordan Henderson: Liverpool's Linchpin Leader

This past week marked the nine-year anniversary of Jordan Henderson's transfer from Sunderland to Liverpool. From a skinny right-sided midfielder -- who admitted to being daunted at sharing the same midfield as Steven Gerrard -- to a colossal leader of men, Henderson has come of age at Anfield and is the ideal player to lead Jurgen Klopp's team on the pitch. It is by no means an attempt to demean the energetic 29-year-old -- anyone who wins 55 England caps …
Liverpool's Werner Swerve Could Strengthen Team Bond

Liverpool's Werner Swerve Could Strengthen Team Bond

Excuse the pun, but Timo Werner's decision to join Chelsea came out of the blue. The RB Leipzig forward publicly flirted with the Reds on an almost constant basis; notably taking time to flutter his eyelashes at Liverpool and Jurgen Klopp -- describing both the team and the coach as "the world's best" -- after the Bundesliga side -- thanks to a penalty from Werner himself -- defeated Spurs in the Champions League round of 16 first leg. Then news …
