How Liverpool Have Evolved In A Year

How Liverpool Have Evolved In A Year

In the days leading to last seasons opening games, every single pundit had either Chelsea or Manchester City winning the Premier League. The general feeling was that the return of Cristiano Ronaldo would also propel Manchester United into contention, and Liverpool would be eased down the table. In hindsight, the uneducated views of nearly all the experts who disregarded Liverpool now seem very foolish. Liverpool had just experienced their most injury-ravished season in history, and had relied on the defensive …
Fulham v Liverpool - Time For The Reds To Overwhelm

Fulham v Liverpool - Time For The Reds To Overwhelm

As much as we all enjoyed the Manchester City win, the community shield stands as a glorified friendly that has little impact on the season. If Liverpool had lost that game, I would have dismissed all agendas towards its significance. But in victory, I happily welcome the plus points that may come in winning another trophy. Confidence was clearly brimming, and a good performance now stands them in good stead for the Premier Leagues opening weekend. Manchester City are clearly …

New Kids On The Block

I often try to avoid most pundits nowadays, as I struggle to make sense of the drivel spouted. I do sometimes enjoy the bluntness of Roy Keane and Graeme Souness, and the banter between Jamie Carragher and Gary Neville was initially entertaining. BT Sport is currently employing the worst group of analysts going, and their only contender for poor punditry is those on the BBC. I think Danny Murphy still kicks about talking nonsense, alongside a few others I just …
Julian Ward: A Window Of Uncertainty

Julian Ward: A Window Of Uncertainty

I would be surprised if any Liverpool player had ever been labeled as for sale whilst under the watch of Jürgen Klopp. Often times a player likely to leave will be lauded for their importance, just prior to their sale. With a strong start to this summer transfer window, there are now more questions than answers regarding the Reds' business. Sadio Mané is gone, Divock Origi is gone, and Takumi Minamino has also departed. So far, Darwin Núñez and Fábio …
Fabio Carvalho - The Endgame Won’t Alter

Fabio Carvalho - The Endgame Won’t Alter

The start of this winter transfer window was full of frustration, as the entire fanbase were concerned that FSG would never back any January purchases. Then, much like the past Fabinho deal, a target arose, and was swiftly announced as a red. The speed and confidence with how the deal was confirmed was beyond satisfying, and should point to a more aggressive transfer policy. The signing of the Columbian international, Luis Diaz, was both unexpected and spectacular. The rumblings of …
Luis Díaz - The Lowdown

Luis Díaz - The Lowdown

Not since Ibrahima Konate arrived at Anfield have I been able to submit a piece on a new Liverpool signing. Yet as the first month of 2022 draws to a close, the final period of the transfer window appears to have delivered the Reds' fanbase at least one new signing. Whereas all top level football fans are spoilt, expectant and usually unrealistic within a time of pandemic, Liverpool fans have every right to be relieved at what must be considered …
Who is Liverpool transfer target Fabio Carvalho?

Who is Liverpool transfer target Fabio Carvalho?

Fabio Carvalho is set to stay with Fulham this month, but he could be a Liverpool player once this season comes to an end. Marco Silva doesn’t want to sell him, but his contract is almost up and the Reds are believed to be favourites for his signature.  So what is all the fuss about? Again, the first thing to flag here is that the sample size isn't the largest - just 1,150 minutes in the Championship. It makes him …
