Leon Bailey and that "Concrete Interest"

With the breaking news this morning that Bailey himself confirmed Liverpool have a “concrete interest” in him, I decided to follow on from my pieces on Fekir & Pulisic with a look at the Leverkusen star, Leon Bailey. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VfzKDAPd9VY Above: Reliable Bundesliga journalist, Old Gregg, hinting at a move to Liverpool. My mind wandered this morning to that exact moment I fell in love with him, as a player. I had seen him a few times, mostly in cameos or a …
Why Christian Pulisic would be Liverpool's Ultimate Investment

Why Christian Pulisic would be Liverpool's Ultimate Investment

With football’s ever-growing obsession with the word “potential”, it’s not often one gets to make statements of absolution. Indeed, football is obsessed with making resolute, consummate statements within a game that is transient and is cursed with never really knowing what is real and what is just, essentially, an educated guess. Football clubs have the power of analysis, of an endless stream of statistics and opinions from those most qualified to make decisions, and yet no decision ever made could …
The Joy Of Hubris: Liverpool v Real Madrid

The Joy Of Hubris: Liverpool v Real Madrid

In some ways this is all to do with Gini Wijnaldum. Last May he broke down the Anfield right and slotted a vital goal past Middlesbrough’s Brad Guzan to calm Red nerves and put us on the way to Champions League qualification. He was then pretty quiet for the intervening months save for a goal against Huddersfield Town. Eleven months from that Boro strike, however, he finally delivered a goal away from home. He chose the second leg of the …

I'm a wreck....but just maybe! | Countdown to Kiev

I'm a wreck. Tossing and turning at night. Nervous. Worried. It's not because this is my first article in god knows how long. It's not because I'm worried that Jack Butland may be joining Jurgen's red army. It's all down to the big one. Saturday evening against Real Madrid... European royalty no doubt. I'm convincing myself it'll be all fine. No one has lived with us so far, how can Madrid? I worry about their experience, their needle and dark arts. I …

Will Mo Salah End the Messi & Ronaldo Ballon d’Or Stranglehold?

Will Mo Salah End the Messi & Ronaldo Ballon d’Or Stranglehold?

As Mo Salah sent that outrageous looping header into the Bournemouth net last weekend, you were left stunned by yet another piece of individual genius from the Egyptian King. It also clocked up a notable milestone for the 25-year-old, who took his incredible goal tally to 40 for the season, despite not even being an out-and-out striker. Only Ian Rush and Roger Hunt have achieved that feat in the past, which sums up how prolific he has been. Luis Suarez …

Here are the observations from the match. Why Always Me? If Liverpool were going to find a winner against Palace in the dying embers of the match, who else would be the man to get it other than Mohamed Salah? The Egyptian showed tremendous composure to …

Mohamed Salah: Liverpool's next global star?

Liverpool vs Manchester United is a game that notoriously has a huge amount of viewers, but Saturday's instalment will be a clash feasted upon by a whole new nation.
