Why Liverpool Must Find Their Coutinho Replacement

Why Liverpool Must Find Their Coutinho Replacement

Liverpool’s pursuit of Nabil Fekir looks to be over (for the time being), and with it has come another question: do Liverpool currently have their optimal squad? Or should they return to the market once more, with the intent of finally replacing the man who formerly practised his magic at Anfield? Well, quite simply, yes. It might not be Fekir, nor might it be someone who will fit what Coutinho did immediately, but the Reds aren’t a complete team: at …
Five Nabil Fekir Alternatives for Jurgen Klopp

Five Nabil Fekir Alternatives for Jurgen Klopp

Reds fans have suffered a fairly tumultuous start to this summer's transfer window. First came the Fabinho signing, seemingly out of nowhere, and joyous fans took to Twitter to proclaim their love for Michael Edwards and the rest of the transfer committee. In the coming weeks the Reds were linked with a few big-name players across Europe, none more so than Nabil Fekir of Lyon. After just weeks of the interest becoming public knowledge, Fekir was at Melwood, being interviewed …
Liverpool FC and Götze, Should the Marriage Ever Happen?

Liverpool FC and Götze, Should the Marriage Ever Happen?

Watching Toni Kroos ready himself for a free kick in extra time against Sweden is a far cry from where the Nationalmannschaft found themselves just four summers ago in South America. Here, Kroos was forced to place a stunning goal in the back of the net for the opportunity of survival, a place Germany has rarely found themselves under the leadership of Joachim Löw. As impressive as the strike from Kroos was, as was his play in the 2014 Word …
The Seven Year Itch | FSG - A Review

The Seven Year Itch | FSG - A Review

In October of 2010, Fenway Sports Group purchased Liverpool FC for £300 million. In his first statement as owner, John Henry claimed,
'We're here to win and we'll do whatever is necessary.'
Fast-forward almost seven years later, and fans are still divided as to whether FSG have been good owners for the club, and whether the club has progressed, regressed, or simply remained stationary for this period. Under FSG, Liverpool FC have had four managers: Roy Hodgson (sacked January 2011), Kenny …
No Van Dijk: What Next?

No Van Dijk: What Next?

Only a few days ago I, like many Liverpool fans, was both happy and assured knowing that next season Virgil Van Dijk would be lining up alongside Joel Matip for Liverpool in the Champions League. How wrong we were. The approach was too good to believe. Liverpool had stumped up £50 million, for a centre-back? Utter madness. But pleasing madness nonetheless. A little haranguing over the contract had concerns bubbling, but that tension was soon eased when reports came in that …
Could Mario Gotze play in the Liverpool midfield?

Could Mario Gotze play in the Liverpool midfield?

It was going to happen eventually. It was just inevitable so long as Jurgen Klopp was in charge but I doubt many envisaged it happening quite so soon after being diagnosed with a metabolic disorder. Mario Gotze is once again being linked with a move to Anfield just six months after rejecting a move to join Klopp’s revolution on Merseyside. The 24 year old was a target for his former manager as he looked to reunite with the player he …
Mario Götze: Should Liverpool Pass or Pounce?

Mario Götze: Should Liverpool Pass or Pounce?

Hey everybody! It's that time of year again, and once again Liverpool are "linked" with Mario Götze. The 24 year old World Cup winner returned to Borrussia Dortmund this past summer for a fee of around 20m, but yet again Mario has struggled to find his feet. This has become a common theme with the German since his initial transfer from BVB to FC Bayern in 2013, as he's yet to kick on from his breakout 12/13 season at Dortmund …
Brandt or Pulisic? Which Young Gun Fits Best?

Brandt or Pulisic? Which Young Gun Fits Best?

There’s certainly been no hiding Klopp’s fancies. Reliable information is at a premium in this day and age, but two pieces of information all have gotten behind in recent times are Liverpool’s pursuits of two of the Bundesliga’s most captivating young attackers. It’s more than justified as well; Sadio Mané’s absence from Liverpool has been detrimental to the way the once mesmeric attack functions, and has brought up the lack of depth Klopp has in his attack. A young, dynamic, …
Are Liverpool Dark Horses for the Title?

Are Liverpool Dark Horses for the Title?

It's a new dawn in the Premier League. Not just in terms of more money than ever being pumped into the league effectively evening the playing field somewhat, but more importantly, never before have people been able to find a collection of the most influential managers in world football today within the same league at the same time. It's a who's who of managers as Antonio Conte and Pep Guardiola join Jurgen Klopp, Jose Mourinho, Arsene Wenger, Mauricio Pochettino, Slaven …
Just how Important to the balance of the team is Emre Can?

Just how Important to the balance of the team is Emre Can?

Before the transfer window even opened Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp implied he wanted the bulk of incoming players to be signed before the club flew out to America for their tour. So far the Reds have brought in Loris Karius, Joel Matip, Marko Grujic (although he was signed in January), Sadio Mane Ragnar Klavan and Gini Wijnaldum has joined up with the squad now too. Although some supporters view these dealings as underwhelming given the earlier links to a certain …
