Do Liverpool Know How to be Frontrunners?

Do Liverpool Know How to be Frontrunners?

If you could have one movie character share Michael Edwards’ air-conditioning and have a chat across his desk, who would it be? I’ll pause for a moment while you ponder the possibilities. The right answer is, Ben Affleck. No, not Batman. Edwards doesn’t need to be roughed up just yet. Maybe A.J. from Armageddon could have a heart to heart with our sporting director and let him know just how important it is for us that he makes a signing, …
How Should Liverpool's Transfer Window Play Out?

How Should Liverpool's Transfer Window Play Out?

Who else remembers when Liverpool were European champions just three weeks ago, and everything seemed good in the world? Then the transfer window came along - a period of any year that is fast becoming unbearable, having seemed far more enjoyable in the past. When it comes to the Reds' upcoming business, it is no surprise to see opinion split on the matter. On one side, you have those who see this as one of the most important summers in …
Transfer Window? Who Cares?

Transfer Window? Who Cares?

The transfer window is open, speculation has already started, clubs have already started wheeling and dealing, and Liverpool have been linked with… Well okay, to be fair, the picture has changed somewhat around Anfield over the last couple of years. Leaks don’t tend to come out of the club at all anymore, which means that whilst some of the unreliable sources will link us to any player that looks like they’d fit the bill, tangible links to players are few …
Why so serious? Confessions of a negative Liverpool fan

Why so serious? Confessions of a negative Liverpool fan

Since the 2013/14 run-in specifically, but probably far before that, there has been a sect of Reds supporters who have not felt safe to embrace positivity. There have been peaks and valleys where the legions of the negative have ebbed and flowed. If you’ve been so kind to have listened to me on various Anfield Index podcasts, you’ll know that while I have celebrated “the project” and our progress under Rodgers and then with Klopp, I have been reticent to …
Midfield Reinforcements For Liverpool: Pre-contract Targets To Add Creativity

Midfield Reinforcements For Liverpool: Pre-contract Targets To Add Creativity

Liverpool's midfield benefitted from £100m in investment over the summer with the surprise signing of Monaco's Fabinho, and the arrival of Naby Keita - signed from RBL last summer. However, with the injury to Oxlade-Chamberlain, we've still had to suffer through games with Gini Wijnaldum, James Milner and Jordan Henderson in the engine room. As we've seen in recent games, the three from last season's team are able to provide a solid midfield to counter teams like PSG and Man …
Is Michael Edwards as Important to LFC as Jurgen Klopp?

Is Michael Edwards as Important to LFC as Jurgen Klopp?

When Michael Edwards first came to the front of most Liverpool’s fans' minds was the summer of 2017, when Edwards’ tenure as Sporting Director exploded into life with the signing of Mo Salah, the first of many extraordinary signings that Edwards has secured as Liverpool’s chief transfer man. But of course, Edwards has been in the picture longer than that. He was announced as Sporting Director in November 2016 and played a pivotal role in the signing of Sadio Mané …
Should Klopp Out-Crazy Mourinho After Unhinged Presser?

Should Klopp Out-Crazy Mourinho After Unhinged Presser?

Jose Mourinho’s comments immediately after Liverpool’s 4-1 victory against United in Ann Arbor were an absolute disgrace to his club and were he any other manager he would have been left to walk home from Michigan. But aside from signalling his classic third-year implosion and clearing a path for Liverpool to take a run at City, do we really care what is said from the United manager? The disheveled one is a plaid shirt away from being confused for grunge-era …
It's Time for Liverpool to Get Back to Where They Belong

It's Time for Liverpool to Get Back to Where They Belong

The whistle blew to signify the end of Liverpool’s 2017-18 season and fans felt drained. The Champions League final in many ways was indicative of an exciting and turbulent season that promised so much but ultimately failed to deliver a major trophy that Reds fans so desperately craved; but despite this disappointment that felt like a gut punch, there was also optimism albeit tempered with frustration. Klopp’s Liverpool team felt like a team, and for the first time in many …
Hakim Ziyech Would be the Perfect Response to the Fekir Transfer Saga

Hakim Ziyech Would be the Perfect Response to the Fekir Transfer Saga

If Liverpool’s pursuit of Fabinho was an old-school signing, bereft of a long drawn out process with a strangely anticlimactic moment at the end, Fekir was a good old-fashioned transfer saga. From rumour to confirmation in under two hours, Michael Edwards wrapped up a deal for the defensive midfielder without any complications. The pursuit of Fekir however, was anything but. Liverpool appeared to have a deal for £49million, rising to approximately £53m wrapped up, with the Lyon attacker pictured doing …
Scouting Fabinho: Liverpool's New Anchor

Scouting Fabinho: Liverpool's New Anchor

Monday Night – UK time: Liverpool fans still reel from their Champions League final loss, yet they are motivated in their club’s resolve to use it as the platform for progress; a bump on the road to something special. Nobody quite knew just how quickly the Reds would get moving on that road, though. As photos emerged of their shiny new Brazilian midfielder, standing clad in that famous Red kit, every Liverpool fan in the world probably had the same …
