Javi Manquillo | The Right Man For Right Back?

Javi Manquillo | The Right Man For Right Back?

Moves to help curb the frailties of the Liverpool defence seem to be gathering speed now, as Liverpool seem set to sign Atlético Madrid full back Javi Manquillo on a two year loan, only a matter of days after signing Dejan Lovren. For some, the name Manquillo will only bring back memories of the horrific neck injury he suffered in a recent Copa del Rey semi final against Real Madrid. For others, it will make them ask "who?", with the …

Transfers: Don't Believe the Hype | Liverpool FC

Liverpool Football Club just embarked on a pre-season tour of the United States. The Reds will play a least four games over the next fortnight, against the likes of Roma, Manchester City and AC Milan, in four different cities - Boston, Chicago, New York and Charlotte. The tour squad includes new signings Adam Lallana, Emre Can, Lazar Markovic and Rickie Lambert, with Loic Remy said to be on route to the USA for a medical, before completing his transfer and …
Brendan Rodgers' Liverpool: A Year of Learning

Brendan Rodgers' Liverpool: A Year of Learning

It is at times required to look back to find focus on what lies ahead. As has been recited in articles, podcasts, and books alike, Liverpool's remarkable achievements last season were unfathomable, especially when one considers the obstacles and interrogations of Rodgers' ability which were  met en route. Unfortunately, many believe 'Brenton Fraudgers' will be found out next year, with a number of fans and pundits citing a lack of preparation time this season due to European competition as one of …
Fixating on Liverpool's Fixtures

Fixating on Liverpool's Fixtures

All eyes are now, and have been for the last ten days or so, on events unfolding at the World Cup in Brazil. Thirty two nations, a fantastic location, some enthralling encounters and hitherto unrivalled coverage of all the action, have helped to shift focus away from matters domestic, for the short term at least. Meanwhile, back in Blighty, the home front has come grinding to halt (after Luis Suarez all but sealed England's somewhat inevitable fate over in Rio), …
Liverpool FC: Following the Dortmund Model into Europe

Liverpool FC: Following the Dortmund Model into Europe

Back to the Holy Land It’s that time of year again isn’t it? That annoying period in a season where every player, manager, pundit and fan peddles out the most irksome of cliché’s in the game: “if you offered me this position we’re in right now at the start of the season, I’d have bit your hand off for it!”. *Patiently waits for the next passing bus and jumps out in front of it* However I think an exception to …
Steven Gerrard and The Missing Page in Liverpool's Scrapbook

Steven Gerrard and The Missing Page in Liverpool's Scrapbook

As I write this Liverpool Football Club sit proudly at the top of the Premier League table and for want of a more suitable phrase ‘this shit just got real’. Of course there’s a legion of old-timer Kopites who have seen all this a dozen times or more, but similarly there is a whole generation of reds who have never been caught up in such a groundswell of optimism and belief that the title might, just might, be coming back …
Is the Smart Money on Liverpool?

Is the Smart Money on Liverpool?

Four, long years. Four years of Champions League football wilderness, starting with the capitulation of the Rafa regime, continuing with Hodgeball and the return of the King, and most recently, an investment in what is fast becoming a special managerial talent in Brendan Rodgers. I’m circumventing a key issue in those four years, of course – the change in ownership.  The shift from Hicks & Gillett to FSG is somewhat embryonic – as if the old Liverpool is suddenly poised …
Why December is important to Liverpool's season

Why December is important to Liverpool's season

Next month is by far the most important month of Liverpool's 2013/14 campaign on a whole. December is the month when players get tired from the past few months of football and see themselves pushed to the limit with a rush to get all of our remaining 7 games played and out the way before we can make any signings in January and freshen the squad up, and here is just why December is crucial to Liverpool's season. The first …
