Should Benteke be baffled by Klopp's treatment?

Should Benteke be baffled by Klopp's treatment?

It seems frustration has got the better of Liverpool striker Christian Benteke after he spoke out about his lack of playing time under Jurgen Klopp. Speaking to Belgian publication Sport/Voetbalmagazine the Liverpool no.9 said -
'When your coach says he wanted to take you to Dortmund and a little later you sit at the same club and he ignores you it is hard to understand.'
Should the Belgian be confused with regards to his current situation? Stating that …
Can Origi be Liverpool's Lewandowski?

Can Origi be Liverpool's Lewandowski?

When Jurgen Klopp was appointed as Liverpool manager at the beginning of October many fans took to social media to give their thoughts on how the current squad could replicate how the mentalist German set up his successful Dortmund side. One of the favourite comparisons was that £32.5 million man Christian Benteke would be Liverpool's answer to Robert Lewandowski. There's an obvious comparison to make between the two with both being goalscoring no.9's but for many fans that's where the …
Palace fume - all Bent(eke) out of shape

Palace fume - all Bent(eke) out of shape

Bask in it. Allow yourself this moment. Warm up these cold March days with the fume that Liverpool generated with the stoppage time win over Crystal Palace. Christian Benteke has been a much maligned figure since his £32 million move from Aston Villa in the summer of 2015, but against Palace he united the fan base and paid back his transfer fee, and then some. People are going on about this as though the big Belgian wasn't touched and that …
Analysis: Liverpool Goals scored with and without Benteke

Analysis: Liverpool Goals scored with and without Benteke

Christian Benteke has had a mixed debut season with Liverpool. From the match winning goals to the many missed chances, he's really showed why every single Liverpool fan was 'right' about the Reds signing him this summer. On one side are those that wanted him for his 'goals', and yes he does score goals and win you games. On the flip side to that though are the ones who thought goals aside he offers very little else and doesn't really …
Liverpool's Five Top of the Flops of the Last Five Years

Liverpool's Five Top of the Flops of the Last Five Years

Anfield Index is five years old! It's that strange age when the adorable toddler you once knew begins to get a little less cute and little more annoying. The 8am tantrums begin when getting ready for school. Incessant questions on absolutely everything in the entire universe. Questions of which you quite clearly have all the answers to. BUT Anfield Index isn't a child, it's an institution; a medium for Liverpool fans the world over to discuss, share, provide, debate, vent …
Christian Benteke - Harshly Judged or Fairly Criticised?

Christian Benteke - Harshly Judged or Fairly Criticised?

The story of Christian Benteke at Liverpool is that of a sorry tale about a misfit. He's our Buddy the Elf to Liverpool's elves. He stands out and not in a good way. When he gets involved the other players seem to have to increase their workload to accommodate him. It may not be Christmas but it's still winter so you're allowed to watched Elf. Signed for big money, £32.5 million, the pressure to fire Liverpool into the Champions League …
Jurgen Klopp's influence on January Transfers

Jurgen Klopp's influence on January Transfers

Liverpool spend a week negotiating with Shakhtar Donetsk for Alex Teixeira and eventually miss out. Same shit, different year, right? Apparently not it seems. If rumours are to be believed it was Reds boss Jurgen Klopp who rejected the Alex Teixeira deal due to the fact it's his belief the player isn't worth the reported £38 million, this after Fenway Sports Group had sanctioned the deal.  Of course such rumours can't really be verified but for a moment imagine it's …
No Value for money? The January transfer myth

No Value for money? The January transfer myth

Unicorns. Myth. Loch Ness Monster. Myth. Bigfoot. Myth. My girlfriend saying she'll only go in one shop. Myth. No value in the January transfer window. Myth. All are spoken about as though they're fact when in reality they're no more than myths. Of course you can find the odd bit of evidence to support these claims, "Sam remember that time over Christmas 2012 when I went into the first shop and bought that coat", "Remember when we signed Andy Carroll …
Liverpool's Benteke Problem

Liverpool's Benteke Problem

As many of you are aware (well those of you who follow me on Twitter) I'm not a big fan of Liverpool's Belgian forward Christian Benteke. But at the same time I'm also not a fan of supporters giving him abuse and grief just for the sake of it, jumping in on the bandwagon. My reasoning behind why I'm not his biggest fan is simply this: I don't think Benteke is suitable to the new Jürgen Klopp style of football. …
The Transfer Committee, Klopp and Steven Caulker

The Transfer Committee, Klopp and Steven Caulker

Stay calm. Don't get too excited but if you had 12/1/2016 on your *when will fans ignore the fact Jurgen Klopp said he has final say on transfers and moan about the committee when we sign a player people don't like is signed by the club* raffle ticket then you've won. The prize is nothing other than knowing Liverpool fans too well. A certificate can be requested from Gags if required. The first press conference with Jurgen Klopp as Liverpool …
