Bargain Basement Buys That Liverpool could go for this Summer

It's no secret that the foundation of Liverpool’s recent success has been their excellent transfer business. Prior to the capture of Virgil Van Dijk for a world record transfer fee for a defender and the following summer spending spree which saw four new faces walk through the Shankly gates, Michael Edwards and co conducted much savvier business via calculated risks including the now irreplaceable Mo Salah. The Egyptian king’s value has skyrocketed to such an extent since his arrival at …
Does Fabinho at centre back actually make sense?

Does Fabinho at centre back actually make sense?

It's starting to really get to the crunch period of the season for Liverpool. The next batch of fixtures see the Reds come up against the German powerhouse that is Bayern Munich in the Champions League before a pivotal trip to Old Trafford to face a resurgent Manchester United side in a potential title-deciding Premier League clash. Perhaps not the best time to be in the midst of an injury crisis that has taken out a number of players - …
How Andy Robertson symbolises the Klopp era

How Andy Robertson symbolises the Klopp era

If ever you wanted to sum up how impatient and overly-critical the modern football fan is, just look at the flack Andy Robertson took after two average performances against Leicester and West Ham. These weren’t remotely poor displays, just adequate showings that included giving away a sloppy free-kick in the lead-up to Harry Maguire’s equaliser for the Foxes. Robertson roared back to his best form in Saturday’s 3-0 victory over Bournemouth, however, putting in a trademark shift down the left. …
Balance the Key to Fixing Liverpool's 4-3-3

Balance the Key to Fixing Liverpool's 4-3-3

At the start of the season, before a ball had been kicked, the assumption was that Liverpool would end the season with a first choice midfield of Fabinho, Keita and one other midfielder. Liverpool’s two new, big money, acquisitions were expected to dominate the team sheet sooner or later, and the question of which of the remaining trio – Milner, Henderson or Wijnaldum – would fit the third midfield slot. Since then, that particular question has been rather emphatically answered …
Naby Keita - Our Midfield Missing Link

Naby Keita - Our Midfield Missing Link

Building a team can’t be easy. Take a look at Manchester United. Take a look at Chelsea. Whilst one side - United - is performing much better since appoint a new manager (the natural reaction of a team so far against their former manager that surely anyone remotely positive would see an upturn) the other - Chelsea - have already seen their ‘new manager bounce’ fade away after an incredible and unsustainable start. Both teams have wonderful individual talent, but …
Mentality, mettle, mistakes and Liverpool

Mentality, mettle, mistakes and Liverpool

Liverpool never seem to do things the easy way. The 2005 Champions League victory was a prime example, from the dramatic late Steven Gerrard goal against Olympiakos to ensure qualification from the group stages to the nerve-wracking win over Chelsea in the semi-final. We all know the emotional rollercoaster that was the incredible penalty shoot-out success against AC Milan. Over the past three decades, we’ve seen defeat snatched from the jaws of victory and success usually come in the most …
What is Liverpool’s Best Midfield?

What is Liverpool’s Best Midfield?

Comparative to previous years where Jurgen Klopp has had four players to choose from off the bat, Liverpool have benefitted from more options in the middle of the park this season, before the rigour of the campaign could take its toll, at least. It’s therefore been of little surprise to see the German utilise the extra options by tailoring his system to each opponent, obtaining the perfect mix of defensive resilience and attacking ingenuity across the board. However, the injuries …

Liverpool 3-0 Bournemouth: Who Was Man of the Match?

Amid accusations that Liverpool were beginning to buckle under the pressure of an intensifying title race, the Reds produced a determined and assured performance to overwhelm Bournemouth and regain top spot. Sadio Mane's fantastic header gave the home side the lead, but it was Georginio Wijnaldum's delightful second which truly settled the nerves at Anfield and seemed to put the result beyond reasonable doubt. Mohamed Salah then rounded off a stunning move with a well-taken third, and from that point, …
