The League Cup Is Still Important

The League Cup Is Still Important

The League Cup is irrelevant. The Champions League, despite bearing little resemblance to its previous incarnation, is the main pot to win and while the F.A Cup will always be the main domestic cup competition, the – God help us – EFL Trophy has been relegated to the lowest of tournaments. It’s an embarrassment to the footballing calendar. No one is remotely arsed about it. Jesus, even Birmingham City won it a few years back. League Cup Schmeague Cup. However, …
Can the Attack Fire Liverpool into the Top 4?

Can the Attack Fire Liverpool into the Top 4?

The Liverpool Echo, more specifically James Pearce, recently published an article informing Liverpool fans that Jurgen Klopp no longer had an interest in Bayern Munich's Mario Gotze and he was happy with his attacking options moving forward into the new season. Given the Reds were looking to bring in Monaco's Kylian Mbappe and Rennes' Ousmane Dembele it does strike me as odd that after only one attacking signing coming in so far this Summer in Sadio Mane, and with Jordon …
Forget the past, Forget the future - It's time to embrace the here and now

Forget the past, Forget the future - It's time to embrace the here and now

Liverpool Football Club stands at a crossroads. A club blessed with the most illustrious of histories, struggling to find success in the modern game. For too long our supporters have focused on the clubs past achievements, past players and past managers. A fanbase living in the splendour or the squalor, of years long past. I've always found it important to embrace the past, as it moulds and shapes the club we've become, the supporters we now are. But we need …
What Ruben Neves would bring to Liverpool

What Ruben Neves would bring to Liverpool

The link to Ruben Neves is a strange one. It's not out of the ordinary to see a player of his profile being linked with a move to Liverpool in the media. He's young, talented and has a huge resale value if he lives up to his potential. He ticks the boxes. It's that formula, the basic profile for many FSG signings, which makes linking players to Liverpool fairly easy for the press in their quest for clicks. What is …
Philippe Coutinho: Give Him What He Deserves

Philippe Coutinho: Give Him What He Deserves

Philippe Coutinho is a player you would go to games just to watch him play, even if you were a neutral or supported another club. On his best day, there’s arguably only a few players in the world that can provide jaw-dropping moments like he can. In our title-challenging season, Coutinho was arguably the biggest piece of the puzzle. He tallied a whopping 64 chances created and provided 57 key passes. In the process of our 100+ goal campaign that …
Liverpool and Dortmund: Uncanny Resemblance

Liverpool and Dortmund: Uncanny Resemblance

The Liverpool squad had been granted a clean slate after the club parted ways with Brendan Rodgers and appointed Jurgen Klopp on October last year. It gave them a chance to prove themselves to their new manager, who is arguably the most popular manager in world football. While many have successfully predicted some players would have difficulties to adapt to the intense system Klopp demands of his players, there were was only one who surprised us most. Adam Lallana. The …
Klopp's first pre-season is vital to a good League start

Klopp's first pre-season is vital to a good League start

Liverpool's preseason preparations under Klopp will be a stark contrast to the ones experienced under Brendan Rodgers. The 2015/16 preseason preparations felt a little too nice. It's all about conditioning for the season ahead and there's a reason Klopp was reportedly disappointed with squads fitness levels when he took over in October. Fans expecting to see a vengeful Liverpool side after the humiliation of the season prior were left feeling a little underwhelmed as the friendlies unfolded. The team had …
Liverpool Supporters - From Doubters, to Non Believers

Liverpool Supporters - From Doubters, to Non Believers

I understand, you're scarred. A fanbase living in perpetual fear, of the failings from previous managers and previous owners. Unable to let go of all the nearly moments, of all the false dawns. You're sick of word transition, of buying potential. Tired of watching rivals attract some of the finest players in Europe; while your club conducts the longest transfer saga's in human history. All the while knowing your club will still raid Southampton for what feels like a 17th …
DoF Fantasy Series Part 4: Premier League Restricted

DoF Fantasy Series Part 4: Premier League Restricted

We’ve all been screaming, sighing, boiling, enraged, agonized, infuriated, and outraged at the thought of buying Premier League proven players rather than vying for the rising talents of Europe, and rightly so, because there’s not such thing as Premier League proven players when statistically there’s been no difference between the performance of a player that arrives from a different country as to players who’ve had experience in English football. But to be the devil’s advocate, I’m going to try and …
Liverpool still haven't mastered the PR game

Liverpool still haven't mastered the PR game

"I'm looking forward to the new season with Bayern."
- Mario Gotze, 23/05/2016 Liverpool aren't allowed nice things. Their potentially quixotic end to the season now a distant memory as Mario Gotze seemed to end all the rumours by committing his future, short-term at least, to current club Bayern. This news comes less than a week after the Reds capitulated in the second half of the Europa League final to not just miss out on the Champions League …
