Bobby & The Altered Dynamic

Bobby & The Altered Dynamic

For the past six seasons Roberto Firmino has been able to make the false nice position his own. His understanding of the position, its intricacies and work rate requirements have made the role very specific, and his off ball work has always been commended. His value has a goal threat has not always been as desired, but the superb goal getting of others made this a non issue. Up until the start of last season, Bobby had been able to …
Should Liverpool move for Ousmane Dembele on a free transfer?

Should Liverpool move for Ousmane Dembele on a free transfer?

Ousmane Dembele might soon join the likes of Arda Turan and Simao as players forever linked with Liverpool who never actually made the move to Merseyside. The French winger is yet again being linked with a move to Anfield with his Barcelona deal set to expire at the end of the season.  The 24-year-old was named as a Liverpool transfer target during Jurgen Klopp’s first summer with the club and if you believe reports, he was actually ahead of Sadio …
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 …
Diogo Jota: Is he ready to replace Roberto Firmino?

Diogo Jota: Is he ready to replace Roberto Firmino?

Diogo Jota has a bit of a knack for not particularly playing that well but managing to find the back of the net. It is a handy trait to have.  He did just that against Norwich City in Liverpool’s season opener, scoring the first as the Reds romped to what was a relatively straightforward 3-0 win.  The 24-year-old scored with what was an instinctive finish after Mohamed Salah’s touch fell kindly into his path. It was a finish that fans …

How should Liverpool line-up in attack this season?

How should Liverpool line-up in attack this season?

Neil Jones got a lot of Liverpool fans talking recently when he wrote that 'next summer is already being talked up as a big one by sources close to the club'. I chose, based on past experience, not to read into that. Instead, it was another line in his piece that stood out to me. "Wonderful as they are, this will be the fifth season that those three [Mohamed Salah, Roberto Firmino and Sadio Mane, of course] have made up …
Who should be Roberto Firmino's understudy?

Who should be Roberto Firmino's understudy?

Heading into this transfer window, there was hope Liverpool would bring in a traditional centre-forward. Someone who could not only fill in for Roberto Firmino but maybe also play alongside him. A player who might’ve been able to give the Reds a bit more of a Plan B. Maybe even someone who might be the one to kickstart the next evolution of this team.  The window is still open for a while, but there are no suggestions that this is …
Time for a central role for Mohamed Salah?

Time for a central role for Mohamed Salah?

Liverpool are back, looking healthy and refreshed after a much-needed post-season break. The 2020/21 campaign was an intense one for the Reds, both mentally and physically, and both Jurgen Klopp and his players looked drained by the time they sealed Champions League football back in May. If one player carried this team more than anyone in 2020/21 it was Salah, who enjoyed another outstanding season while others around him struggled. Liverpool's No.11 scored 31 goals in all competitions, standing tall …
Who is Alexander Isak and why might Liverpool be interested?

Who is Alexander Isak and why might Liverpool be interested?

Transfers may be on hold while both the Euros and the Copa America are being played, but it doesn't mean that transfer rumours have taken a break. Liverpool have been linked with a host of names recently. Fabio Vieira is rumoured to be a target for the Reds and a deal involving Marko Grujic could be on the cards. German media claim Florian Neuhaus is top of the club's wish list this summer and talks will start again once Germany's …
