Who Could Replace Joe Gomez Next Summer?

Who Could Replace Joe Gomez Next Summer?

I wrote a piece earlier in the season in relation to Joe Gomez. It was centred around the notable talents this England international possesses, and how his former place in the starting line up could be regained, especially with the injuries to Ibou & Matip. You can see the link here, but unfortunately for our popular number 2, it’s probably now outdated. In our glorious pre covid run to the 2019/20 Premier League title, the 6ft 2 inch defender played …
All Change at The Back This Summer: 2 In, 2 Out

All Change at The Back This Summer: 2 In, 2 Out

There’s always one attribute for elite players that can get ignored - availability. Consistency is the obvious one that gets mentioned and often used as an argument against footballers when debating their level. Liverpool fans could see both those charges levied against a couple of their centre backs right now and it would be very difficult if not near impossible to defend them. Ibrahima Konate looks to be fully recovered from his pre-season injury sustained against Stausbourg and his recent …
Liverpool Players Who Could Break Into The Euro 2024 England Squad

Liverpool Players Who Could Break Into The Euro 2024 England Squad

With England having successfully dispatched Iran 6-2 in their opening game, it gave the nation a spirited start to an otherwise strange World Cup tournament. The winter break seems bizarre, the one love arm band debate is on going, but in between we saw the three lions turn out a pretty ruthless and efficient display. With a few grumblings over the initial squad selection by Garth Southgate, that subject can now be shelved, and allow for the group stage matches …
How To Take On The Domestic Cups This Year

How To Take On The Domestic Cups This Year

Liverpool's first game back after the World Cup is in not the Premier League, but the 4th round EFL tie against Manchester City. This game will represent the ideal tune up to the Reds' Boxing Day visit to Villa Park, and getting Pep Guardiola’s side in the last 16 is the perfect draw for Jurgen Klopp. Apart from Erling Haaland and a few squad players, most of the Etihad roster is spending this next month at the World Cup. The …
Liverpool 3 - 1 Southampton - The Post-mortem

Liverpool 3 - 1 Southampton - The Post-mortem

A win is a win, and to sign off for the mid-season World Cup break with three points is a massive bonus for everything Liverpool FC related. With our manager (Jurgen Klopp) banished to the stands for one game, the pre match once again had an air of uncertainty. Would Southampton explode with that new manager bounce? Would Jurgen jump from the upper stands into the technical area? And would Liverpool once again capitulate at Anfield? The day prior seemed …
How Do We Top Up Our Summer Budget

How Do We Top Up Our Summer Budget

We are all fully aware that under the FSG rule, we are a club that needs to be (for the most part) self-sufficient. Yes we have vastly improved Anfield, yes we have vastly improved our training facility (with the superb Kirkby structure), and yes we have handed out huge contracts to world-class players. But what we often failed to do is make consistent moves within the transfer market, certainly without a raft of sales being made to lower the net …
Gomez: LFC’s most cashable asset?

Gomez: LFC’s most cashable asset?

Ain’t nobody like Joe Gomez…It’s certainly been a challenging campaign for the 25 year old defender. Numerous lows have been punctuated with the occasional high, as Gomez has found himself the focus for many in a struggling Liverpool side. History has counted for the player somewhat with many, but what has been shown on the pitch recently has looked woefully short of what’s needed. As Liverpool head into the January window and with summer plans to consider, there’s understandable question …
The Ibrahima Konate Effect

The Ibrahima Konate Effect

The summer before last saw Liverpool pay £34m for Ibrahima Konate, securing his services from German outfit RB Leipzig. The season prior had seen Liverpool‘s central defence end the season with Nat Phillips and Rhys Williams in the first team, as they scrambled for Champions League qualification. That season had seen Virgil van Dijk, Joe Gomez and Joel Matip, all succumb to long-term injuries. This also came after the sale of Dejan Lovren. Lovren was not replaced that summer, and …
Does Jurgen Need To Switch To A 3-4-3 Formation

Does Jurgen Need To Switch To A 3-4-3 Formation

With the Liverpool team's on-going issues, there’s also going to be endless antidotes to solve the problems at hand. To start from the top (then all the way down), below probably represents all the pieces that need change, apparently: The Ownership - FSG The Sporting Director - Julian Ward The Chairman - Tom Werner (FSG) The CEO - Billy Hogan The Manager - Mr Klopp The Assistant Manger (Author) - Pepijn Lijnders The Head Of Medical Services -  Andrew Massey …
The Good, The Bad and The Ugly from Nottingham Forest vs Liverpool

The Good, The Bad and The Ugly from Nottingham Forest vs Liverpool

Another week, another poor Liverpool performance. How has this team fallen so far? From chasing an unprecedented quadruple to losing to the team who entered and ended the weekend bottom of the league. Liverpool lost four matches in all of last season. Four defeats in 63 games. This season couldn't be more different. In just 15 games this season they have already lost four games. In 11 Premier League games, they've now dropped points in seven of them. Last season …
