Can Klopp finally land the League Title?

Can Klopp finally land the League Title?

Prior to the World Cup, Liverpool could conceivably have delivered the most spectacular summer for many a decade (in midfield alone). The midfield roster was oh-so-close to being Fabinho, Keita and Fekir. An upgrade of epic proportions and the kind of statement of intent that has been rare in the Anfield Premier League era. Midfield moves If we measure our title aspirations against our most serious rivals moving forward, Man City, then the midfield upgrades are clear. The respective quality …
Finding Faux-kir | The Search for Fekir Alternatives

Finding Faux-kir | The Search for Fekir Alternatives

It was either him or us. Someone was going to get hurt here. Fekir or us Liverpool fans. Either his knee would collapse, or the deal to sign him would. He had already been interviewed for the site, done the photo shoot, sold his house in France, told his ex-colleagues what he really thought of them and cancelled his milk order. Then Liverpool pulled the plug. At least that is how I believe it played out based on some reactions …
Alisson, Van Dijk & Keita: Liverpool’s New Game-Changing Spine

Alisson, Van Dijk & Keita: Liverpool’s New Game-Changing Spine

This time just over a year ago, imagine being told Liverpool would sign Alisson, Virgil van Dijk and Naby Keita in the 12 months that followed. It would have felt like the most beautiful of pipe dreams, even if Alisson wasn’t the world-renowned goalkeeper he speedily blossomed into at Roma. Great teams have great spines and Liverpool have lacked one for a rather harrowing amount of time. For too long we have had to watch the likes of Simon Mignolet, …
Why Julian Draxler Could be the Solution

Why Julian Draxler Could be the Solution

Liverpool are back in action, and the transfer window’s closure is eerily inching closer by the day. Of course, there is still a month to conduct business, and it isn’t merely Liverpool – with a vacuum in the squad in the shape of Nabil Fekir still looming large – who are troubled by a lack of activity so far this summer. Paris St. Germain are currently being investigated by UEFA regarding a potential breach of Financial Fair Play regulations – …
International Football: Simplicity, flexibility and its lessons for Liverpool

International Football: Simplicity, flexibility and its lessons for Liverpool

International football has many joys. Whether its the carnival atmosphere at major international events, the seeming togetherness produced both intra-nationally and internationally, or just the chance to see teams and players you would never normally get the chance to watch, international football can be an enjoyable departure from the closer-to-home tribalism and intensity of club football. A further joy to be added to the list is the simplicity of international football compared to the club game. International managers are not …
Has Klopp built a stronger back-up squad to the XI he inherited?

Has Klopp built a stronger back-up squad to the XI he inherited?

This summer's been a bit of a whirlwind, hasn't it? We've had the highs and lows of England's World Cup campaign, with ironic jeers of 'it's coming home' appearing more and more realistic as the Three Lions reached the semi-final. The dramatic use of VAR to keep pulses racing as modern technology enlarges its grip on football. The widespread appreciation of Jordan Henderson and his importance to the national side in Russia. I could go on. As far as the …
The FSG Spending Myth

The FSG Spending Myth

With Liverpool in the middle of a critically important transfer window (aren’t they always?), it seems like a perfect time to revisit a recurring myth amongst the Liverpool fanbase: FSG refuse to spend the money to compete for trophies. As an American Liverpool fan, I scoff at the notion that Fenway Sports Group is a bunch of cheapskates who do not like to put money into their teams. This is because FSG also just happens to own the Boston Red …
Sadio Mané - Still Liverpool's Main Man(é)?

Sadio Mané - Still Liverpool's Main Man(é)?

Sadio Mané has been an absolutely integral player to Liverpool since his move to the club two summers ago. Across two seasons, Mané has started 54 games for the club in the Premier League, scoring 23 goals and notching 12 assists, not to mention his double-digit Champions League season for the Reds as they surged to the Champions League final. But I wanted to take a look at just how important Sadio Mané is to this Liverpool side. In many …
Liverpool's Change of Striking Options for 2018-19

Liverpool's Change of Striking Options for 2018-19

With the World Cup in full swing, it’s been wonderfully quiet on the LFC front. Indeed, if the club needed to negotiate a bad story through a usually vigilant media, it could do no better than to do this of all months. The footballing world is caught up in Diego Maradona, VAR and Chris Sutton’s constant tone of confusion and disappointment. But one thing has come out this week. Danny Ings has announced, having received no guarantees about his first-team …
Why Bruno Fernandes Should Be Liverpool's Contingency Plan

Why Bruno Fernandes Should Be Liverpool's Contingency Plan

Monday the 11th of June: one of football’s “firsts” transpired in Portugal, in reaction to one of football’s more stranger stories. Sporting Lisbon, under the tyrannical rule of a despot who’s been described as the football president equivalent of Donald Trump, are forced to accept the news that over a hundred million worth of its assets will depart the club, citing “Just cause” for the termination of their contracts after a group of the club’s ultras attacked their own players …
