Firmino fully deserving of Liverpool century duty

Firmino fully deserving of Liverpool century duty

Roberto Firmino has, throughout his time at Liverpool, proved to be a perfect sidekick for other superheroes dressed in red. The Brazilian has never complained at having to play the role of Robin as the likes of Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mane have set about performing their best Batman impressions. For a man from South America, standing in the shadows can be as rewarding as one under the brightest of spotlights, with their plaudits to be found even when others …
Bobby & The Etihad Corral

Bobby & The Etihad Corral

The gunfight at the O.K Corral is an historical moment that has been retold many times over, throughout various western movies. Depending on your age, movies that still seem fairly modern to me will probably be deemed ancient by the generations born after me. Tombstone was a brilliant film that had every scene stolen by Val Kilmer, as the notorious gunslinger, Doc Holiday. This man was a peculiar man, that had a charming manner and bespoke ability in particular situations. …

What does Luis Diaz’s signing mean for Liverpool?

What does Luis Diaz’s signing mean for Liverpool?

You'll know all about Luis Diaz by now. You'll know he is explosively quick, a genuine goal threat and he has that special something about him. You know what I mean, that ability to create something out of nothing that just leaves you confused but impressed. There's a touch of Luis Suarez about him. I've also seen some compare him to Sadio Mane and Roberto Firmino. He is the sort to take something personally. If someone fouls him,  he will …

Bring Me Ivan Toney

Bring Me Ivan Toney

Now and again an opposing side can cause such a stir it has the manager (on the receiving end) look deeply into said team, and more importantly their players. I wrote about the RB Salzburg tie from a few years back and how the intelligence, elegance and work rate of a certain Takumi Minamino, prompted Liverpool to make move for the gifted attacker. Whereas this deal hasn’t worked out from a first team point of view, the low fee paid …
Diogo Jota: Liverpool's future No9

Diogo Jota: Liverpool's future No9

It’s no secret that Liverpool would benefit from a reliable centre-forward. Roberto Firmino is good for double digits in the Premier League and he brings more to the team than just goals. But it is becoming increasingly difficult to overlook the fact a ruthless No9 would make a difference.  Now, the dream signing for most would be Erling Haaland. The 21-year-old has 42 goals in 45 Bundesliga appearances for Borussia Dortmund following his move from Red Bull Salzburg in January …
