How will Liverpool Line-up vs Stoke?

How will Liverpool Line-up vs Stoke?

With the season opener getting closer and many transfers completed already it's now when fans and journalists start looking at how the team may line up. Obviously injuries could play a part and new signings could happen but generally 99% of the players here now will be those in contention for a start against Stoke. With that in mind I decided to ask Phil McNulty, Chief Footballer writer for the BBC, Jack Lusby, a rival of mine for someone who …
Season Preview: Liverpool 2015/16

Season Preview: Liverpool 2015/16

The summer break often has mystical powers when it comes to football fans. Any disappointments from the previous season become fading memories and the positives can be somewhat embellished; a few new signings and the magical optimism returns. The excitement builds as your team travels to the four corners of the world to play either a Premier League team for a strange looking trophy, an all-star pub team or one of the European giants for some other kind of tournament. …
Do Liverpool Have Squad Depth in Defence?

Do Liverpool Have Squad Depth in Defence?

Much has been made this summer about Liverpool buying in bulk again. Many fans believe we now have the numbers to compete in the many competitions we'll be involved in this coming season. The question is not 'if' Liverpool have the numbers but whether they've got the requisite quality? After all, numbers don't always indicate quality, do they? With that in mind myself and two others, Tom Dowan and John O'Sullivan, have decided to take a look at the squad …
Lovren's Actions Speak Louder Than Words

Lovren's Actions Speak Louder Than Words

Dejan Lovren is mentally weak. I don't like making assumptions or accusations like this, especially when they're towards people I don't personally know, but this is just something you can't ignore. All players want to be loved but Dejan Lovren seems like the sort that needs positive reinforcement to function. Less than one week after saying he doesn't want to be the made the scapegoat again this season he's making Patrick Ronaldinho look like Sergio Aguero. Poor defensive positioning against a Malaysian side …
Goals, Goals, Goals!

Goals, Goals, Goals!

So the new season is nearly upon us. Just over two weeks to go until LFC can begin to pick up the pieces of a shambolic end to last season and try to instil confidence in themselves and the loyal fan base. New signings and coaches are settling in and the fans are trying to figure out what style we will play next season. What the pre season tour has shown is that the popularity of the club on the …
Can Clyne and Moreno nail down full-back positions for years to come?

Can Clyne and Moreno nail down full-back positions for years to come?

Last season, full-back proved to be a problem position for Liverpool, but in Nathaniel Clyne and Alberto Moreno there is reason to be quietly optimistic about having two quality players in place for the foreseeable future. The list of players to fill in on either side of the defence in 2014-15 was seemingly endless. Aside from Moreno, the following players had a stab at filling in there: Javier Manquillo, Glen Johnson, Jordon Ibe, Jose Enrique, Jordan Henderson and Emre Can. …
High Press Could Mean No Defensive Midfielder?

High Press Could Mean No Defensive Midfielder?

Sam McGuire wrote this article before jetting off to Egypt and it links in nicely with the Sean O'Driscoll rumours. The season is still two months away from the opening game but people have already started asking others how they think the team will line up next season. One thing the majority have mentioned is how a lack of a proper defensive midfielder hinders their team selection. We've seen under Brendan Rodgers that the gaping hole in centre midfield is …
Signing Nathaniel Clyne - Another canny move by Liverpool?

Signing Nathaniel Clyne - Another canny move by Liverpool?

So it looks like Nathaniel Clyne will be Liverpool's sixth summer signing of the season. The infamous 'transfer-committee' have worked tirelessly this summer to ensure that Liverpool's transfer dealings get done early before the start of pre-season. James Miner and Adam Bogdan (free transfers), Danny Ings (Tribunal fee), Joe Gomez (£3.5 million) and Roberto Firmino (£22 million + £7 million add-ons) have already been added to the Reds' squad with the club yet to sell any of the deadwood around …
Nathaniel Clyne - Should Liverpool Be In-Clyne'd?

Nathaniel Clyne - Should Liverpool Be In-Clyne'd?

The typical joke of “shopping in Southampton” is pretty understandable. Instead of spending the gargantuan amount from Luis Suarez’s sale on his potential replacement(s), Liverpool used a majority of the sales proceeds to acquire three of their players, namely Adam Lallana, Dejan Lovren, and Rickie Lambert. While so, Southampton actually have a great pool of players; we just bought the wrong ones. Beyond the players who moved from Southampton to Liverpool, Manchester United, and Arsenal, there are other players who …
