What should Liverpool do with Divock Origi?

What should Liverpool do with Divock Origi?

I won’t hear a bad word said against Divock Origi, but the club need to sell him this summer.  He’s a cult hero for what he did during the 2018/19 campaign and there’s absolutely no disputing that. It is still surreal to think back to that season and his involvement in it. He was chucked on late against Everton with Liverpool looking to sneak a win and he was in the right place to nod home after Jordan Pickford’s error. …
Rafa to Everton: Is it really that bad?

Rafa to Everton: Is it really that bad?

Seeing Rafa Benitez holding an Everton scarf above his head was a surreal moment. Did any of us ever think we'd see the day? It is one of the most controversial appointments for some time and is sure to send shockwaves across Merseyside and beyond. Having been an adored figure at Liverpool between 2004 and 2010, we are now going to have to witness Benitez trying to work his magic across Stanley Park. It's fair to say Everton fans have …
Where does Salah rank among the all-time Liverpool greats?

Where does Salah rank among the all-time Liverpool greats?

Even in a season where Liverpool capitulated at times, Mo Salah was still largely exceptional. Granted, there were occasions when the Reds' No.11 wasn't at his stellar best, but he was comfortably his side's Player of the Year and helped inspire them to an unlikely third-place finish. While Sadio Mane and Roberto Firmino floundered, Salah scored 31 goals in all competitions, and without him, it is hard to imagine Liverpool's campaign being anything other than a disaster. It is now …
Michael Edwards - The Regeneration

Michael Edwards - The Regeneration

For years, the director of football was a nuisance, an obstacle and a hinderance to most managers throughout the Premier League. The mere thought that any old school manager would need either help, guidance or another body to aid the club football was sneered upon, and often dismissed. FSG have had their failings, that is not in doubt , yet it is the overall process from their tenure that should be applauded. They have learned, progressed, installed a working structure …
Divock Origi: One of the most curious LFC careers

Divock Origi: One of the most curious LFC careers

Most Liverpool careers are easy to define. Some are legendary figures who reach world-class levels for the Reds, some are great servants who rarely let the team down and others are disaster areas, to name just a few examples. It is often simple to fit an individual into a certain category, using their back catalogue of performances as a perfect way to gauge them, but then there's someone like Divock Origi. It looks highly likely that the Belgian will move …
Ibrahima Konate - The Lowdown

Ibrahima Konate - The Lowdown

At 22 years old, and 6 feet 4 inches tall, the towering French centre back comprises much of what Jurgen Klopp looks for in a central defender. His potential signing could offer some much needed assurance next season. If reports are to be believed. Since Jurgen Koop took over at Liverpool, he has signed two starting central defenders in his tenure. Joel Matip was signed on a Bosman free from Schalke, and Virgil Van Dijk for a record fee from …
How Thiago controls the Liverpool midfield

How Thiago controls the Liverpool midfield

The win over Burnley was exactly the sort of game Thiago was signed for. He was one of the main reasons Liverpool were able to stamp their authority on the match. As a result, not only did they dominate the ball, they also dominated the space. That was the big difference.  Usually, in matches against Sean Dyche teams, the Reds have the majority of the possession but they’re limited in where they can operate.  Until the deadlock is broken, you …
Thiago and Fabinho Axis Show The Way Forward For Liverpool

Thiago and Fabinho Axis Show The Way Forward For Liverpool

It has mostly been a train wreck of a season for Liverpool. Going into the season as defending champions, the Reds -- crippled by a huge injury toll -- relinquished their title without as much as a whimper and they gave a generally poor account of themselves in cup competitions, both domestically and in Europe. As things stand, the Anfield club face a fight to even compete at Europe's top table again next season, a prospect that would have seemed …
Klopp - Class is Permanent

Klopp - Class is Permanent

When Jurgen arrived at Anfield, he followed three managers after Rafa Benitez had departed. He was a wonderful manager, a brilliant tactician & a man that brought the Champions League back to the red half of Liverpool. Istanbul stands as the greatest of finals, and the result will stand the test of time. That kind of achievement cements a place in Liverpool folklore. Rafa understood the reds, he understood the fans and understood the need for more. His final disagreements …
Joe Gomez enters defining period of his Liverpool career

Joe Gomez enters defining period of his Liverpool career

Joe Gomez has now been a Liverpool player for almost six years, which doesn't seem possible. In fact, he is now the fourth-longest-serving player at Anfield, behind Jordan Henderson, Divock Origi and James Milner, yet is still only 23 years of age. Gomez's Liverpool career has been a curious one, with endless moments of promise, exceptional runs in the team, but also a worrying list of injury layoffs. His early performances for the Reds in those first few weeks of …
