Why Liverpool Can Win Number 7 In 2019-20

The Champions’ League triumph of 2018-19 was full to the brim with iconic moments that will be remembered forever in the history of Liverpool Football Club. The Alisson save in the dying moments against Napoli, the audacious Trent Alexander-Arnold corner in the seemingly impossible comeback against Barcelona at Anfield and, of course, the Origi finish late on in Madrid, to name just a handful. These events will live eternally in the memories of all Liverpool fans, and rightfully so. However, …
Clarity The Key for Origi

Clarity The Key for Origi

After weeks of conjecture, Divock Origi recently penned a contract that will see the Belgian remain at Anfield for the foreseeable future. Origi, who scored twice in Liverpool’s Champions League semi-final victory over Barcelona and the sealing goal in the Reds’ Champions League final victory over Spurs, had been linked with, among others, Real Betis. The former Lille academy product began the season well off the first team, barely even making matchday squads ahead of the likes of Daniel Sturridge. …

Liverpool Players At The Forefront of Brazilian Success

Brazil sailed through to the Copa America final with a 2-0 victory over their eternal rivals, Argentina, on Tuesday night, thanks in no small part to Liverpool players. It is a testament to Liverpool’s growth in recent years that they have players playing in key roles for a footballing powerhouse like Brazil.

Why Keita could be key to Liverpool becoming English Kings

Why Keita could be key to Liverpool becoming English Kings

In the context of a football match, a midfielder receiving the ball, dawdling on it, eating a few seconds of time before laterally recycling it is no big deal. It happens umpteen times in the course of every game. In the case of Naby Keita’s Liverpool career, however, it could be symbolic of the Guinean fully acclimating to both Jurgen Klopp’s tactical demands and the pressure’s associated with playing for a worldwide footballing institution such as the Reds. In a …
Has Oxlade-Chamberlain Become Over-hyped?

Has Oxlade-Chamberlain Become Over-hyped?

Jurgen Klopp has assembled arguably the most likeable Liverpool squad in memory. Whereas in the past, supporters would have a small selection of genuine heroes to choose from, they are now spoiled for choice. Everywhere you look, there are superb, Champions League-winning footballers who are also warm, down-to-earth characters, from Alisson in goal right the way through to Sadio Mane in attack. One player who manages to even stand out from this crowd is Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain: a loveable person and …
Why Liverpool Must Spend This Summer

Why Liverpool Must Spend This Summer

In any other era of football history, a 97 point haul in the league would guarantee the league title. Unfortunately for Liverpool, this is the era of Manchester City and their state-sponsored, law-flouting spending and their club record points tally wasn’t sufficient to claim the clubs first league since the 1989-90 season. Liverpool’s squad, as the league table indicates and the Champions League victory further reinforces, is excellent. It is, however, not deep enough. Until the required quality is added …
Origi Stay Signals Liverpool's Transfer Intent

Origi Stay Signals Liverpool's Transfer Intent

Divock Origi will be staying at Anfield for at least one more year. Whilst it remains unclear whether the Belgian will sign a new deal with the Reds, although Liverpool are certainly hoping that he will, what is clear is that no offers for Origi will be entertained in this window, even if that means losing the player on a free next summer. There are a number of interesting aspects to this story. The first thing to note is that …
One Signing To Solve Liverpool's Summer Puzzle

One Signing To Solve Liverpool's Summer Puzzle

We’ve won it six times... Now that the formalities are out of the way, let’s talk about transfers. Various reports state that Liverpool have the ability to spend, but aren’t inclined to disrupt a squad that blew away their Premier League points record while bringing the Champions League title back to Anfield. The resulting riddle is, how can Liverpool make a relatively conservative tweak, one move that would have a tangible impact on the 2019/20 season? A Swiss-Army-Knife, do everything, …
Liverpool now capable of winning dirty

Liverpool now capable of winning dirty

The Champions League final between Liverpool and Spurs was probably as bad a deciding game as the competition has seen for years. In terms of a neutral, it was a bland showing between two sides that had an array of attacking talent on show. Some pundits have put this down to the fact that both sides had a three-week break from their last league game, blaming rustiness as the reason for the lack of quality. However Jurgen Klopp will not …
