Don't Call Liverpool FC A Selling Club

Don't Call Liverpool FC A Selling Club

Aidy Ward. At one time the name was enough to put Liverpool supporters into a cold sweat. That was remedied somewhat when he brought us Oxlade-Chamberlain from Arsenal...  But prior to that he was considered the slimiest of all of the snakes in the reptile genus for facilitating Raheem Sterling’s move to Manchester City. That dark period was 2 years and 5 months ago; the last time any Liverpool player of significance to the club was sold.  Mr. Ward was …
The Klopp Project (Part 1): Great Expectations

The Klopp Project (Part 1): Great Expectations

So. Liverpool Football Club. This great club of ours. Steeped in history and tradition, but in many ways still a sleeping giant on the biggest stage. A club that hasn't won the top domestic prize for 27 years, a club whose fans have developed a perhaps unhealthy obsession with winning league title number 19 and the club's first league title in the Premier League era. The question everyone wants to know is how long do we have to wait? Of …
Liverpool's Can Plan

Liverpool's Can Plan

With attention turning back towards the pitch and Liverpool’s nine game unbeaten run going into the match against Manchester City there was a perceptible lack of negativity in the LFC universe this week … Like clockwork, the media and social-media panic mongers filled that void with Emre Can’s contract status. The Reds’ midfield strongman is surprisingly still on his original £55K per week deal which expires at the end of the 2017/18 season. Rival clubs would be able to sign …
Silence at Anfield

Silence at Anfield

It's all gone eerily quiet around Anfield. Not long ago the mood was euphoric; Liverpool had secured Champions League football, and were heading the race to sign Van Dijk. Rather uncharacteristically for Klopp's Liverpool, the news regarding Van Dijk was out in the open, before the player had put pen to paper, or even before Liverpool had submitted a formal offer. After that almighty omnishambles, which played out for the entire football world to see, Liverpool have shut-up shop. In terms of transfer …
A Fickle Fanbase & the van Dijk Repercussions

A Fickle Fanbase & the van Dijk Repercussions

For too long, Liverpool have placed far too much emphasis on talking about transfers, and have subsequently lacked the dynamism in the market to back that talk up with meaningful actions. Liverpool over the years have consequently developed an extensive list of missed targets that the club widely reported our interest in. Such an approach has left the Liverpool fan-base disappointed and embarrassed on countless occasions, as we’ve expected to sign a player, and embraced the hype surrounding that player, …
Pressure Growing on FSG?

Pressure Growing on FSG?

The transfer window isn't officially open but the daggers are already out for Liverpool owners Fenway Sports Group. Three weeks. That’s all it took for the mood to go from euphoric after a fourth placed finish in the Premier League meant the club were just two positive results away from a place in the Champions League group stages. There was a bit of relief thrown in there for good measure after it looked as though the Reds may come undone …
Klopp wants Believers but my Doubts Remain

Klopp wants Believers but my Doubts Remain

I’m going to attempt to do something here that is perhaps a little alien to me when it comes to Liverpool Football Club, I’m going to attempt to write the following from the head as opposed to the heart. The reason for this, is that I was recently thinking about Jurgen Klopp’s opening shots as club manager during that brilliantly charismatic first press conference. And in particular the much touted line about changing our perception of the side, of turning …
Are Liverpool Really

Are Liverpool Really "Becoming Tottenham"?

Immediately following the announcement of the dismissal of Brendan Rodgers, Jamie Carragher remarked,
"Liverpool are becoming Tottenham, they think they're a big club but the real big clubs are not too worried about them - who they buy, what they're going to do - that's the situation as it's become for Liverpool, even when I was there at the end."
No doubt a hurtful statement for the Liverpool faithful, but how much truth is there is Carragher's assessment of the club, …
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 …
