To the Left, to the Left, All of LFC's Money in a Box to the Left

It was obvious to close observers last summer, even before all of the pieces were moved around Jurgen Klopp's chess board, that Liverpool were short an attacker. More specifically, the Reds could have done with a left-sided forward in order to complete the ultimate rotation. When Liverpool can assemble their preferred starting eleven, it's an imposing, potent force. However, when one of the attacking players had to be rested the Reds brought back 80's childhood memories of being one Decepticon …
Prioritising the Market - Analysing Liverpool FC's Weaknesses

Prioritising the Market - Analysing Liverpool FC's Weaknesses

So there’s a consensus amongst Liverpool fans about which positions the club will look to – and must – strengthen this season. The five positions that need to be addressed – or at least considered – this summer were: goalkeeper, centre-back, defensive-midfield, attacking-midfield and back-up winger. Essentially, we’re looking to replace Karius, either upgrade on Lovren or provide another option to rotate with him, replace Emre Can, replace Phil Coutinho, and provide some support to Mo Salah and Bobby Firmino …
Five Potential Attackers to Backup Liverpool's Main Men

Five Potential Attackers to Backup Liverpool's Main Men

Christian Pulisic Dortmund’s American sensation, Christian Pulisic has been on the radar of Liverpool (and Klopp) for a while now. Just nineteen and already laboured with shouldering the burdens of club and country, he’s certainly got experience beyond his years. Still raw and unrefined, Pulisic’s sublime dribbling ability is the first thing that stands out whenever he gets on the ball. Alongside that, however is the tendency to come up big when it matters, such as the winner he scored …
Scouting Christian Pulisic: Dortmund's Teenage Sensation

Scouting Christian Pulisic: Dortmund's Teenage Sensation

At 1-1, Dortmund’s recent failures stared them in the face. Julian Nagelsmann – the manager they’ve been pursuing as a means of ailing all their woes suffered under previous incumbents – was about to grind out a great result at the Signal Iduna Park. Hoffenheim had taken a first-half lead but the lack of attacking impetus had come back to bite them in the rear-end as Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang nailed an equaliser in the sixty-third minute. Then stepped up the American …
Brandt or Pulisic? Which Young Gun Fits Best?

Brandt or Pulisic? Which Young Gun Fits Best?

There’s certainly been no hiding Klopp’s fancies. Reliable information is at a premium in this day and age, but two pieces of information all have gotten behind in recent times are Liverpool’s pursuits of two of the Bundesliga’s most captivating young attackers. It’s more than justified as well; Sadio Mané’s absence from Liverpool has been detrimental to the way the once mesmeric attack functions, and has brought up the lack of depth Klopp has in his attack. A young, dynamic, …
Will Transfer Inactivity Cost Liverpool?

Will Transfer Inactivity Cost Liverpool?

As we've all uneasily borne witness to the declining form and results of the Reds, the inclination of many has been to engage in the inevitable search for blame. People love to blame, don't they? It's an ugly trait but a common one. The aftermath of Saturday's embarrassing defeat was a veritable jamboree of blame-mongering. Klopp's faith in Lovren is ridiculous! The bloody Yanks are refusing to spend! Place was like a morgue - support your team! Henderson's had it, …

The Liverpool Echo believe Spartak value Promes at around the £25 million mark and is the kind of attacking reinforcement Klopp is looking to bring in this January to cover the loss of Sadio Mane to …
Why Liverpool Need... Christian Pulisic

Why Liverpool Need... Christian Pulisic

The 14th April 2016 will go down as one of the great European nights in Liverpool’s history. It was a remarkable comeback, typical of Liverpool, from 3-1 down to win 4-3 on the night and 5-4 on aggregate against Borussia Dortmund, the most in-form team in Europe that year. Whilst most people will understandably look back to that second half at Anfield as one of the defining moments of Jurgen Klopp's Liverpool reign, the second half one week earlier at the Signal …
Alternatives to Dortmund-Bound Ousmane Dembele

Alternatives to Dortmund-Bound Ousmane Dembele

It was announced today, 12th May, that Liverpool target Ousmane Dembele had agreed to join Borussia Dortmund in the summer. The attacker, who only really made his breakthrough in November for Rennes, tore Ligue 1 apart and after only a few weeks it would have been easier, and quicker, to name which of Europe's elite clubs weren't looking at this kid. Those unfamiliar with the player won't see missing out on him as such a loss but your writer, possibly …
