Momentum - Assessing Liverpool's Domestic Progress

Momentum - Assessing Liverpool's Domestic Progress

Progress is one of the big buzzwords around Jürgen Klopp’s Liverpool at the moment. The club has finished in the top four for the second season in a row, ensuring back to back Champions League campaigns for the first time since Rafa Benitez in 2009. Moreover, the club has backed that up by making use of their Champions League campaign, reaching the final for the first time since 2007 at the first time of asking under Klopp. But I’d argue …
Quality Over Quantity - A Quiet Summer for LFC?

Quality Over Quantity - A Quiet Summer for LFC?

Liverpool are rapidly heading towards yet another pivotal summer for the club. With the type of manager than Jürgen Klopp is, and the way that Liverpool are developing – not to mention the current Premier League climate – every single transfer window feels absolutely vital. But in many respects, the constant overhype of every window, the questions of how this side will develop and how big the overhaul will be are contrary to Klopp’s own way of looking at things, …

Liverpool's European Hangover - Statistical Analysis

The Reds are marching on Kiev! What a week, what an achievement! Jurgen Klopp managed to reach his second European final with Liverpool in his second European campaign. Hopefully this time he takes the team a step further than the last time around. The German is yet to lose at Anfield in Europe - a truly remarkable run. With all the excitement surrounding our success in the Champions League, it's easy to dismiss the lack of such domestically. Ahead of …
Liverpool's Depth Issues Are Being Overstated

Liverpool's Depth Issues Are Being Overstated

A lot has been made of Liverpool’s depth issues recently, and particularly in attack. There are good reasons for this, as Liverpool have drawn three of their last four league games, two of them 0-0, as they attempted to balance crucial Premier League and Champions League fixtures. I myself wrote an article on the topic just a few weeks ago, after the goalless draw at Goodison Park. With the Reds 90 minutes away from a Champions League final and one …
Do Liverpool Still Need to Replace Phil Coutinho?

Do Liverpool Still Need to Replace Phil Coutinho?

Euphoria, that’s the feeling washing over most of the Liverpool supporter-sphere at the moment. Their front three are reaching meteoric heights, and their devastating influence on games has become a staple of both the Premier League and Champions League. Teams now fear Liverpool, not simply because of the goalscoring prowess, but also the knowledge that it is now harder to breach what used to be a shaky back-line. Liverpool bought the most expensive defender in world football to help fix …
Mohamed Salah: Liverpool’s Biggest Bargain in The Premier League Era?

Mohamed Salah: Liverpool’s Biggest Bargain in The Premier League Era?

Where Does The Egyptian Rank Among Liverpool’s Best Premier League Signings? The sensational Mohamed Salah has been a revelation for Liverpool this season, but where does he rank among Liverpool’s best value signings in the Premier League era? There are a number of contenders in the running for 2017/18’s various player of the year awards, and Mohamed Salah certainly stands among them. However, if there was an award given out each year for the best signing of the season, Salah …
Observations as Liverpool Surge into Champions League Semi-Finals

Observations as Liverpool Surge into Champions League Semi-Finals

Liverpool battled from behind at The Etihad to record a 2-1 win in the second-leg of the Champions League quarter-final, taking one step closer to Kiev. A goal inside two minutes set the pulses racing as Manchester City came out all guns play, with Liverpool unable to string any momentum together in an attempt to gain some respite. There was an element of luck involved in ensuring the score-line remained just 1-0 as Leroy Sane saw his goal wiped out …
Franchise Tag: NFL's rule, Football's Dream?

Franchise Tag: NFL's rule, Football's Dream?

As an American Red, I don't see a lot of Liverpool news, gossip and talk through popular sports media here in the U.S. I usually seek it out myself, leading me to major UK sports media like Sky, and the meatier local and fan-run sites and YouTube channels like RedmenTV and Anfield Index. While reading through the Coutinho transfer news back in January, I came across a piece on the Sunday Supplement panel on Sky Sports, where Henry Winter described …
Salah or Suarez: Who reigns supreme?

Salah or Suarez: Who reigns supreme?

28 league goals so far, and he doesn't seem to be slowing down: Mo Salah is blitzing his way through records as fast as he leaves defenders chasing dust on the pitch. It's truly remarkable, seeing Salah develop into a second striker, as Klopp looks to wean the very best out of his skills. But having scored every 85 minutes in the league so far, the inevitable comparison to Liverpool's last Golden Boot winner was always going to be made: …
Sugarcoating Emre - The Can Situation Is A Disaster

Sugarcoating Emre - The Can Situation Is A Disaster

There is no right way to leave a club. If nothing else, that’s the lesson that we can take from Liverpool in the last few months and even years. Zeroing in more specifically on Emre Can, it seems to me that there simply is no way that Emre can leave the club that won’t anger the majority of our fans. Let me offer you some plausible ways that Emre could leave. Emre could well, as most people expect at this …
