Transfers, Transfers, Everywhere!

Transfers, Transfers, Everywhere!

Or so everybody with a Twitter account will have you believe. The difficulty, as we know, is getting the right deals done. It's fair to say, however, that Liverpool have moved relatively quickly in the transfer market and have secured two very different types of players.  One in Emre Can who fits the profile of FSG and Brendan Rodgers. The other is Rickie Lambert, who quite frankly does not. I say that because ever since Fenway Sports Group bought Liverpool …

Liverpool's Loan Star Status | Who's Likely To Stay or Go?

Liverpool's Loan Star Status | Who's Likely To Stay or Go?

Amidst the heady concoction of blistering pace, razor sharp attacking and, at times, haphazard defending served up by the Liverpool first team over the past season, it may have been easy to forget that the Reds also had  twelve players out on loan at various clubs, domestically, across Europe, and even in South America. Liverpool's success in securing a second place finish and, with it, automatic Champions League qualification has made it an absolute necessity to add quality and depth …
Simon Mignolet - Is he still good enough? A comparison to rivals

Simon Mignolet - Is he still good enough? A comparison to rivals

Earlier in the season, following Liverpool's 2-1 defeat at Manchester City, I wrote an article looking at Simon Mignolet's first season up to that point as the Reds' first choice goalkeeper following his summer move from Sunderland. At the time he had just made himself public enemy number one to a group of fans (oh how there have been many in that position this season), and questions were being asked. Since that article was published, have his performances improved? Have …
Liverpool's Transfer Window So Far | How The New Boys Could Line Up

Liverpool's Transfer Window So Far | How The New Boys Could Line Up

Callum Huckle reviews the transfer window so far and looks at how the new boys could line up for Liverpool next season. Done Deals    Rickie Lambert arrived, a little out of the blue, from Southampton while we’re were supposedly courting Adam Lallana from the same club - but for £4.5 million this could prove to be a decidedly shrewd piece of business and it always breeds confidence when transfers are wrapped up quickly and early. It’s pretty easy to take …

Ever since the transfer deadline day saga in Rodgers first window at Liverpool, the club has adopted a transfer committee.

The Manager Brendon Rodgers Head of recruitment Barry Hunter Head of Analysis …
The Liverpool Midfield: A Tactical Analysis

The Liverpool Midfield: A Tactical Analysis

To some, the midfield area is one which is overrated. One can look at how many goals a respective team has scored that season, and how many they kept out. Of course, while these spectators acknowledge the importance of a great middle unit, if you are substantially stronger in the first and final thirds, the centre will take care of itself.  However, to be a true bastion of domestic and continental football, the midfield should the heartbeat of an effulgent, …
