The Case For Zero Liverpool Signings

The Case For Zero Liverpool Signings

As the last pieces of content from the Champions League Final dribble out, our attention turns fully to the transfer window. Our domestic and European rivals have begun to make official some of their squad additions with Real Madrid blowing past the €300 million mark already. Liverpool have been linked to several of Europe’s top prospects with De Ligt and Nicolas Pepe drawing the most interest. There is a case to be made that Liverpool should spend loads this summer …
Dejan Lovren speaks about Reds' improvement under Jurgen Klopp

Dejan Lovren speaks about Reds' improvement under Jurgen Klopp

Liverpool's Croatian international defender Dejan Lovren feels that this current Reds squad is capable of battling for major honours over the next few years under Jurgen Klopp. The Reds' number six, who had to deal with plenty of injury concerns this season, is still a vital cog in Klopp's Liverpool machine and a strong asset to have as part of the squad. Speaking to Liverpoolfc.com, Lovren was asked about the progress his team has made since Klopp's arrival in late …
Newcastle 2 Liverpool 3 - Rafa's Red Carpet Left Much To Be Desired

Newcastle 2 Liverpool 3 - Rafa's Red Carpet Left Much To Be Desired

When the time comes, you'll be down in the crypts. They're the safest place to be. We'll put you in the crypt, where it's safest. Rafa will roll out the red carpet for Liverpool. Newcastle will be on the beach. Geordies want Liverpool to win. Yeah, I think we’ve learned this week not to trust long-running, repetitive narratives. Just a casual stroll up to Tyneside without Bobby Firmino, Naby Keita or Joel Matip with the Premier League title still in …
Could be out of sight, but still in command - Observations from Reds' 2-0 win over Porto

Could be out of sight, but still in command - Observations from Reds' 2-0 win over Porto

That could've been a lot better. But Liverpool are still in command of the UEFA Champions League quarterfinal tie against Porto, after a 2-0 win at Anfield in the first leg. The Reds were superb in the opening exchanges, with Naby Keita opening the scoring via a lucky deflection off Otavio. Roberto Firmino capped off a superb team move in the 26th minute to put Liverpool in command. But, the scoring stopped there, despite plenty of opportunities for either side …
Does Fabinho at centre back actually make sense?

Does Fabinho at centre back actually make sense?

It's starting to really get to the crunch period of the season for Liverpool. The next batch of fixtures see the Reds come up against the German powerhouse that is Bayern Munich in the Champions League before a pivotal trip to Old Trafford to face a resurgent Manchester United side in a potential title-deciding Premier League clash. Perhaps not the best time to be in the midst of an injury crisis that has taken out a number of players - …
11 Day Break At The Right Time For Bruised Reds

11 Day Break At The Right Time For Bruised Reds

Liverpool survived an incredible game of football to see off Crystal Palace 4-3 at Anfield. But it was a game that left the already struggling Reds bloodied, bruised and increasingly threadbare, with Rafa Camacho finishing the game at right-back, Bobby Firmino and Adam Lallana in central midfield, and Joël Matip played his first full ninety minutes since breaking his collarbone back in early December against Napoli. It’s fair to say then, that the last thing Liverpool need would be another …
Liverpool's Midfield - Still Not Consistent Enough

Liverpool's Midfield - Still Not Consistent Enough

Liverpool's unbeaten start in the league came to an end last week, which prompted old insecurities in the supporters. A lot of finger-pointing and scapegoating has taken place since. When the starting line-ups were announced there were only two ways it was going to go - the Reds don't lose, and nobody cares, or City beat us, and we all blame the midfield and Dejan Lovren. The Croatian is a topic for another day. I decided to look into how …
Dejan Lovren's deja vu

Dejan Lovren's deja vu

For many, Liverpool’s defeat to Manchester City must’ve felt like a rerun of a movie you’d seen plenty of times throughout the years. A midfield three lacking creativity, picked solely for their energy and experience of the system being deployed, was swarmed by counterparts possessing superior quality both on and off of the ball. The Reds lacked rhythm and their service to the front three was erratic at best as they struggled to string passes together and stamp their authority …
Observations as Liverpool lose their cloak of invincibility at the Etihad

Observations as Liverpool lose their cloak of invincibility at the Etihad

Well... That was a bit shit, wasn't it? Many of us went into the game praying that Liverpool don't lose tonight, and for large parts of the game, it seemed as though the players heard the prayers as Liverpool were largely in their shell. Liverpool needed an Aguero goal at the Etihad (for the zillionth time) to wake up from their slumber. Liverpool equalised with an exquisite move but lost out to a great goal from Sane. The key observations …
Manchester City 2-1 Liverpool: What went wrong?

Manchester City 2-1 Liverpool: What went wrong?

Liverpool have been beaten for the first time in the Premier League this season. It was closely-fought, but Manchester City, the ultimate in title rivals, were deserved winners. The Reds were punished for their first real defensive lapse late in the first half when Sergio Aguero lathered it past Alisson but managed to snatch an equaliser after raising their level just after the hour mark. Supporters may have dreamed of a glorious three points at that stage, but it was …
