Adam Lallana could be deployed in 'Jorginho' role next season says Klopp

Adam Lallana was given another run at the base of Liverpool's midfield, in what Jurgen Klopp called the 'Jorginho' role, during the first half of Liverpool's 3-1 win at Bradford City on Sunday. Klopp experimented with Lallana in this position for the second half of Liverpool's win at Prenton Park last Thursday and wanted to see the former Southampton player in the same role again at Bradford. Two goals from James Milner (one penalty) and another Rhian Brewster strike gave …
Why Liverpool Can Win Number 7 In 2019-20

Why Liverpool Can Win Number 7 In 2019-20

The Champions’ League triumph of 2018-19 was full to the brim with iconic moments that will be remembered forever in the history of Liverpool Football Club. The Alisson save in the dying moments against Napoli, the audacious Trent Alexander-Arnold corner in the seemingly impossible comeback against Barcelona at Anfield and, of course, the Origi finish late on in Madrid, to name just a handful. These events will live eternally in the memories of all Liverpool fans, and rightfully so. However, …

No longer a youth player able to bide your time and develop at a steady pace, there’s a growing awareness that the clock is ticking - you either cut it or you don’t. Where consecutive loan spells would usually spell trouble for such players - see Ryan Kent and Harry Wilson, both of whom face uncertain futures at Anfield with a reduced hope of ultimately …

Liverpool Players At The Forefront of Brazilian Success

Brazil sailed through to the Copa America final with a 2-0 victory over their eternal rivals, Argentina, on Tuesday night, thanks in no small part to Liverpool players. It is a testament to Liverpool’s growth in recent years that they have players playing in key roles for a footballing powerhouse like Brazil. Goals from Manchester’s City’s Gabriel Jesus and Liverpool’s Roberto Firmino further extended Lionel Messi’s wait for international silverware with Argentina. The diminutive Barcelona number ten tried his hardest …
Why a lack of signings is a positive sign of the times

Why a lack of signings is a positive sign of the times

As we turn over another page in our calendars and find ourselves in July, it's hard to believe just quite the position Liverpool are in. If you'd have told any Red when they were flipping the yearly planners over to July 2018 that, in 12 months time, Liverpool would be the reigning champions of Europe after missing out on the Premier League title by a solitary point, I'm sure the vast majority would have sold their soul to make that …

With it, and the recently renewed title of European Champion comes the weight of expectation. But where should expectations lie?

Selecting the perfect 2019/20 Liverpool squad

After a tiring but ultimately thrilling season, Liverpool are almost ready to go again. A number of players will return to Melwood for pre-season training next week, as preparations for another huge campaign begin for Jurgen Klopp and his staff. It's been a relatively silent summer on the transfer front so far, barring the addition of exciting centre-back Sepp van den Berg, but a few more incomings will surely arrive in the coming weeks, despite what some are reporting.

Liverpool's Fabinho happy with first season in Red after slow start

Liverpool's Fabinho happy with first season in Red after slow start

Liverpool's Brazilian midfielder Fabinho has been reflecting on his first season at Anfield under Jurgen Klopp and how after a brief settling-in period he has gone from strength to strength. The former AS Monaco player's signature was announced just over a year ago, 24 hours after The Reds had fallen to Real Madrid in the Champions League final in Kyiv. As with Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain before him, Klopp and his backroom team looked to integrate Fabinho very gradually into the Liverpool …
Liverpool Need To Start Looking Beyond This Summer

Liverpool Need To Start Looking Beyond This Summer

The dust hasn’t yet settled on Liverpool’s sixth Champions League final win in Madrid, which you can tell from the fact that I keep getting tingles every time I write that god damn sentence. But in any case, the speculation has, naturally, turned to what Liverpool are going to do next in the transfer market. I’ve previously stated before that I’m not really that bothered, either about transfer markets in general or specifically about who Liverpool sign this window and …
