Liverpool's transfer conundrum is their biggest strength

Liverpool's transfer conundrum is their biggest strength

People will have you believe that Liverpool find themselves in a tricky situation in the transfer market. With Sadio Mane, Roberto Firmino and Mohamed Salah all guaranteed starters for the Reds, finding adequate back-ups for the trio is a task. Not an impossible one but very much a difficult one.  Gary Neville made the point recently that the attacking trident is too good and it’s because of this that players will be reluctant to sign for the European champions.  To …
Liverpool Begin Campaign with 4-1 Norwich Victory

Liverpool Begin Campaign with 4-1 Norwich Victory

Liverpool got their 2019/2020 Premier League campaign off to the ideal start with a 4-1 victory over Norwich City at Anfield on Friday. Goals from Mohamed Salah, Virgil van Dijk and Divock Origi, as well as a Grant Hanley own goal sufficed for the efficient, if not always electric hosts. As happy as the Reds will surely be with their season opening three points, they will wait nervously on the medical news surrounding Alisson. The keeper was replaced by Adrian …
Positives For Reds Despite Community Shield Defeat

Positives For Reds Despite Community Shield Defeat

Liverpool lost the seasonal curtain-raiser, the Community Shield, 5-4 on penalties to Manchester City at Wembley on Sunday after the game ended 1-1 in normal time. A powerful Joel Matip header cancelled out Raheem Sterling's opener, in a game that -- despite some fans' indifference to the value of the Community Shield -- neither side, judging by the tempo and commitment exhibited by both teams, would have wanted to lose. Despite the "loss", there were many positives for Jurgen Klopp …
Match Report: City Triumph in Wembley Shootout over Liverpool

Match Report: City Triumph in Wembley Shootout over Liverpool

A Gabriel Jesus penalty condemned Liverpool to a 5-4 penalty shoot-out defeat to Manchester City at Wembley. Goals from Raheem Sterling and Joel Matip saw normal time finish 1-1 in an entertaining game, but one in which Liverpool could justifiably think that Lady Luck evaded them. In the second half, in particular, Liverpool -- with Mohamed Salah to the fore --  peppered Manchester City's goal with shots, but a combination of the goal frame, Kyle Walker acrobatics and Claudio Bravo …
There's So Much More to Football Than Winning

There's So Much More to Football Than Winning

There are very few seasons in recent memory as gripping as the 2018/19 campaign. Gritty, determined, and in a few moments, utterly magical, the season will live long in the hearts and minds of Liverpool fans. But what made it so special, was it simply just the victory in the Champions League final? It seems strange to reduce a season which featured an unprecedented league performance, and moments of bedlam, induced in no less than four occasions by Divock Origi, …
Divock Origi is Underrated

Divock Origi is Underrated

Divock Origi is underrated.  His goalscoring exploits in the Champions League last term mean fans will always look at him through rose-tinted glasses. A cult-hero for life, the Belgian doesn’t have to do anything in his Liverpool career now.  However, there are some who believe he didn’t deserve his new contract and that he should’ve been sold this summer while his stock was at its highest. There perhaps is an element of truth to that.  After all, Origi was barely …
Top Of The Pile Liverpool Must Start Again

Top Of The Pile Liverpool Must Start Again

Liverpool are Champions of Europe. I still enjoy saying that. But even if it feels as though the dust has barely settled on a terrific and historic 18/19 campaign, the quest to match last season or even have a better one, in 19/20 has already begun. Even though it’s still a month until the Premier League begins in earnest, pre-season is already underway. The hard work has to start again, and nothing means anything. When the new season starts, everyone …

Divock Origi says he always wanted to stay with Liverpool

Liverpool forward Divock Origi has revealed that he always intended on staying at Anfield and that he has "always felt comfortable" at the club.

There is no release clause included in Origi's new contract. The Belgian international striker spoke with Liverpoolfc.com shortly after penning his contract extension. When …
Rhian Brewster's breakthrough awaits

Rhian Brewster's breakthrough awaits

Rhian Brewster has yet to make a senior appearance for Liverpool, but he is poised to assume an important role in a Champions League-winning squad. On his return to Melwood on Saturday, Jurgen Klopp stressed that the young forward was a key part of his plans for the upcoming campaign. It is an arrival which has been teased for years, but at last it is imminent. One of the reasons Klopp chose not to recruit another striking option last summer, …

Divock Origi on his chat with Sir Kenny Dalglish in Madrid

Liverpool forward Divock Origi returned to pre-season training at Melwood this week and was chatting about the message Sir Kenny Dalglish disclosed to him in Madrid the night The Reds won their sixth European Cup.
