Is No Business Good Business? Liverpool's January Window

Is No Business Good Business? Liverpool's January Window

"These are our new signings" - Jurgen Klopp as he prepares to welcome back Martin Skrtel, Daniel Sturridge, Philippe Coutinho and Divock Origi back to training this week. Frustration was rife on social media as it dawned on Liverpool fans that there wouldn't be a surprise last minute signing. No, Alex Teixeira wasn't going to be leaning on signs all around Melwood in a Liverpool shirt. You guessed it, Saido Berahino wasn't going to be talking about where he watched …
Time To Step Up - Jerome Sinclair

Time To Step Up - Jerome Sinclair

Liverpool just can seem to catch a break lately with injuries. With almost a full compliment of attackers out injured, any hopes of fans seeing Belgian striker Divock Origi in the next few games have been dashed with the news that he's going to be out for at least another month after under going surgery in Belgium which is a shame for him because before he picked up his hamstring injury on Boxing Day he was starting to show a …
Sturridge, Coutinho and Firmino - It can't come soon enough

Sturridge, Coutinho and Firmino - It can't come soon enough

It's been a bit of a rollercoaster season for Liverpool fans already and we're only just in January. From the lows of seeing a Brendan Rodgers Liverpool side humbled at home to West Ham to the highs of Jurgen Klopp's Redmen thumping Manchester City 4-1 at the Etihad we're now finding some middle grounding. Excitement about taking a 1-0 lead in a semi-final back to Anfield but despair at the contagious hamstringitis bug that's currently struck down about 76 of …
Liverpool Atmosphere: The Force Awakens

Liverpool Atmosphere: The Force Awakens

Many years ago, In a galaxy far, far away there was a prophecy spoken about a normal one. The prophecy of the normal one was that foretold the coming of a being who would bring balance to the Liverpool fans. Jurgen was the normal one. Anfield was at it's lowest ebb for many years and the force it once was now nothing more than a myth. He was the one to teach both the players and the fans to believe again. The …
One-Paced Liverpool's Need for Speed

One-Paced Liverpool's Need for Speed

When great attacking sides are mentioned, one quality above all springs to mind - pace. Barcelona’s front three of Lionel Messi, Neymar and Luis Suarez are synonymous with bursting runs past labouring defenders, while Alexis Sanchez and Eden Hazard lit up the Premier League last season as they left hapless opponents in their wake. So when the Liverpool lineup for the West Bromwich Albion game was announced, I was more than a little concerned by our front three. Christian Benteke, …
Time for Liverpool to Sell Sick-Note Sturridge?

Time for Liverpool to Sell Sick-Note Sturridge?

So the man made of glass Daniel Sturridge is out injured again for Liverpool. Is it now time that Liverpool cut their ties with Sturridge and say thanks for the goals and the memories but we can't afford to have a player on our books who spends more time on the treatment table than out on the pitch? I saw on social media recently that Sturridge has only played something like sixteen or seventeen games for Liverpool since Luis Suarez …
Red, White and New: Klopp is America's Dream

Red, White and New: Klopp is America's Dream

As Americans, our growing, yet seemingly sudden love affair with “soccer” (called from here on "football", for aesthetic reasons) is often times seen as something from a monster story by the more "traditional" fans; our passion, love and desire for our newly adopted teams grafted onto this sporting body and jolted to life by some arbitrary happening. Like a man choosing his soul-mate by picking a name at random in the phone book, so is the life of the American …
The Benteke Discussion

The Benteke Discussion

There’s a delirium going around the fields of Anfield road as the Klopp-coloured haze descends upon Liverpool’s once fractured fanbase. It’s a wonderful thing, really, and suddenly what malaises Liverpool possessed under a stagnant regime have turned to the riveting, pulsating ecstasies. Concerns about a lack of goals have turned into the more welcomed discussions regarding the suitability of strikers; and thus we arrive at the crux of the debate. Christian Benteke, what exactly is he? Is he the Lewandowski …
Klopp Effect - The Power Of Positivity

Klopp Effect - The Power Of Positivity

The Shackles are off Ladies and Gentlemen; our young guns are flying again! Jurgen Klopp may have been right in putting the brakes on expectation, but how can you not be excited by what is unfolding before our very eyes? 1-6 at St Marys, 1-4 at the Etihad and 1-3 at Stamford Bridge are the kind of results dreams that send fans into dreamland. Even the most optimistic of fans would never have believed we would have come away with …
Klopp Carving Out Results With Rodgers Tools

Klopp Carving Out Results With Rodgers Tools

Does He Really Need New Pliers? When interviewed following his third from last game in charge of Liverpool, Brendan Rodgers identified a lack of quality ‘tools’ as the reason for his poor managerial record in 2015. “Give me the tools, I’ll do the work” were his exact words in the aftermath of September’s 3-2 victory over relegation-threatened Aston Villa. There was a particular implement in question: the brilliant Daniel Sturridge, whose brace had just extended Rodgers’ doomed reign into what …
