Are Liverpool in a Perpetual State of Transition?

Are Liverpool in a Perpetual State of Transition?

Evolution is inevitable. In football and in everyday life you change to adapt. So what's the difference between transition as a club and evolving? Why are some teams praised for adapting whilst others use being in transition as an excuse? Since Brendan Rodgers took the helm of Liverpool FC it feels like 'Liverpool are in transition' is one of the most overused sentences for fans and pundits alike. Many pin this on Brendan Rodgers, others like to associate the blame …
Danny Ings - A shrewd summer signing in the shadow of Benteke?

Danny Ings - A shrewd summer signing in the shadow of Benteke?

On January 30th I wrote an article on the site titled "Danny Ings isn't that offensive". It was the day after the rumours began about the 22 year old joining Liverpool this summer and Twitter was having its daily meltdown. Fast forward 6 months and Danny Ings is a Liverpool player, has already opened his Liverpool account having scored against Adelaide and the Liverpool fanbase are having a mini meltdown about another striker that's expected to arrive in the next …
Lazar Markovic: The hipster Milan Baros

Lazar Markovic: The hipster Milan Baros

Have you all managed to stop laughing? It took me a while too but I'm serious, that really is the opinion of a select few muppets on Twitter who are eager to write off the young Serbian. I know what you're thinking. It's an easy comparison to make what with both being strikers, right? Oh, no, wait... Well at least they're both from the Czech Republic, yeah? Erm, nope... So it's a nickname purely based on them both having similar …
Sean O'Driscoll - Similar but Different

Sean O'Driscoll - Similar but Different

It's finally here. Pre-season officially began on July 6th. The 'big' news many ITK's predicted never actually arrived. Despite Callum 'credential' Wright saying a Dubai based company would buy the club they inevitably didn't. The manager wasn't replaced by a certain German. It was kind of nice how straightforward it was in the end after a summer of conspiracy theories. The first team coaching staff got two new additions, the playing staff has been aided by the additions of James …
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 …
Danny Ings: What Will He Bring To Liverpool This Season?

Danny Ings: What Will He Bring To Liverpool This Season?

Liverpool have already been active in the summer transfer window, acquiring two players before the period has officially opened. Burnley striker Danny Ings and Manchester City midfielder James Milner will move to Anfield on July 1st as Brendan Rodgers begins to rebuild his squad after a disappointing 2014-15 season. The Reds fared well in the cup competitions – reaching the semi-finals of both the FA Cup and Capital One Cup – but finished sixth in the Premier League table. This was …
Brendan Rodgers: Win (back) the Crowd

Brendan Rodgers: Win (back) the Crowd

I’m a big fan of applying movie quotes to aspects of everyday life. I have a Mean Girls reference for almost any situation. This seemed like as good a time as any to quote the 2000 classic Gladiator. “Win the crowd and you will win your freedom”. With Brendan Rodgers set to remain Liverpool manager for the foreseeable future, following an end-of-season post-mortem with Liverpool’s ownership, the Northern Irishman faces a real test to win back the crowd; to convince …
Danny Ings Isn't That Offensive

Danny Ings Isn't That Offensive

The news broke last night on Twitter. Mass hysteria, a fan base divided (no change there then) and for once it wasn't about the defensive midfielder subject, instead it was about a potential deal to bring Burnley Striker Danny Ings to Anfield, the meltdown that followed was borderline apocalyptic. Granted, It is in the opinion of the fanbase as a whole Liverpool should be looking at a better standard of player, in a league other than England. However, is Danny …
