Why Liverpool Were Wrong To Loan Nathaniel Clyne

Why Liverpool Were Wrong To Loan Nathaniel Clyne

Today, it was announced that Liverpool had agreed a deal with Bournemouth to loan out Nathaniel Clyne until the end of the season. The deal will not come with an option to buy for the south coast club – with the deal merely understood to be put in place for the 27-year-old to play more first-team football. Clyne joined Liverpool in July 2015, who were then managed by Brendan Rodgers. Joining from Southampton for a fee worth £12.5million, many Reds …

Liverpool’s Defence is Great – Until We Get Some Injuries

Liverpool’s Defence is Great – Until We Get Some Injuries

It’s been a pretty good start to the season for Liverpool Football Club, all things considered. The Reds currently sit as outright leaders at the top of the Premier League, they remain unbeaten and they have just secured qualification to the knockout stages of the Champions League despite an overwhelming amount of pressure being placed on their decisive group stage match against Napoli. And to top it all off, Jürgen Klopp seems to have answered his last critics by steadying …
How well is Jurgen Klopp rotating his Liverpool squad?

How well is Jurgen Klopp rotating his Liverpool squad?

No Salah, no Firmino and no Mane. The seven changes Jurgen Klopp made to his starting eleven at Turf Moor raised a considerable number of eyebrows last Wednesday, not least from myself. But subsequently, having collected six points from two potentially tough away fixtures against Burnley and Bournemouth, as part of a gruelling festive schedule are we right to think our boss is rotating the squad to perfection. For many years this is the one factor which has prevented very …

Time for Liverpool FC To Show Their Depth

Time for Liverpool FC To Show Their Depth

Liverpool have a deeper squad than they have in previous years. This is not a fact that I’m going to dispute, although I’d definitely make (and will make) some arguments that that depth isn’t as deep as maybe it’s being made out in some areas, and certainly hasn’t drastically improved over the summer. Nevertheless, Klopp has slowly been building a deep and impressive squad that the four acquisitions in the summer have moved relatively close to being a very top …

Fabulous but Fab-less: Liverpool's Patience with Fabinho

Fabulous but Fab-less: Liverpool's Patience with Fabinho

Patience is a virtue. Sometimes, especially as football fans, we can struggle to see the bigger picture, the longer term, and we can get focused on the here and now. And we can start to question certain decisions. But we need to remember that a little patience never hurt anyone. Take Fabinho, for example. Liverpool’s first summer signing announced just two days after the Champions League final. There was an expectation amongst Liverpool fans that he would come into the …
Trent vs Clyne: Where Does the Difference Lie?

Trent vs Clyne: Where Does the Difference Lie?

It was, to my mind, a surprise to see Trent Alexander-Arnold start over Nathaniel Clyne at right-back for Liverpool's season-opener against West Ham on Sunday. Alexander-Arnold had only returned to the fold at the beginning of the Evian training camp, and when he came on in the penultimate friendly against Napoli just eight days before the clash with the Hammers, he was very much off the pace. A more convincing 65 minutes followed against Torino, but still Clyne, characteristically solid throughout …
