Fabinho & the Need For A World Class Structure

Fabinho & the Need For A World Class Structure

The weekend's game (versus Watford) was a joy to behold. The build up was excellent, the patterns of play varying, the overloading on point, and one performance in particular was breath taking. Games against Watford (and teams that are deemed vulnerable), are a superb means for players to find rhythm, for forwards to regain ruthless efficiency, and the defence to accrue another clean sheet. All Liverpool fans (myself included) were somewhat relieved to see players like Jordan Henderson, Naby Keita …
Jude Bellingham - All The Right Moves

Jude Bellingham - All The Right Moves

There’s been so many different players that have threatened excellence, yet their eventual path has seen them achieve so little. Careers have been mapped out before their teenage years are complete, only for stalled progression, indifferent form and unlucky injuries to tarnish what could have been, and often times, what should have been. The emergence of talent in this country carries unrealistic expectations, pressure and only limited chances by which to fully evolve. As England continue their road to next …

Don’t Look Back In Anger

The nervous nature and anticipation of a big major game rarely sees the emotional ride end when the final whistle blows. There’s sometimes jubilation, now and then dismay, and here and there it’s bitter annoyance. Football can offer the best of times, yet deliver periods of distress that can be absolute weekend destroyers. As match week three drew to a close, there’s a few conclusions that can be garnered from this early period. It’s a short duration in the early …
Jordan Henderson - The Final Contract

Jordan Henderson - The Final Contract

Every machine requires certain parts to work efficiently, some are the more intricate components, whereas some are simply the much needed pieces that help push the machine to where it needs to be. Over the years Liverpool Football Club has had some truly magnificent midfielders that have held the captain's armband, helping to push their red machine to greatness within their own era. Graeme Souness, Ronnie Whelan & Steven Gerrard are just some of the iconic names that sit as …
Huge chance for Naby Keita to prove his worth at Liverpool

Huge chance for Naby Keita to prove his worth at Liverpool

It's fair to say Naby Keita's Liverpool career has been a disappointing one. There have been sporadic good moments thrown in, whether it be eye-catching performances, silky dribbles or relentless presses, but he hasn't come close to reaching the heights expected of him. When Keita sealed a move to Liverpool from RB Leipzig in 2017, the excitement was palpable, and those 12 months prior to him actually playing for the Reds seemed to make expectations even greater. After a vibrant …

Curtis Jones - The Next Step

There have been many young Liverpool players that were primed to make it to the top, however the list of players that actually make it is rather short. Liverpool cannot simply blood youth and maintain levels, thus the domestic cups and throwaway Champions League games are used to give minutes to certain players. Trent Alexander Arnold represents the current academy graduate that has fully established himself in the first team. His rise through the Liverpool system is a sign that …
Could Jordan Henderson leave Liverpool?

The European Championships are over, Wimbledon is done, silly season has well and truly begun. Now, I know it's impossible to *not* read that in Gary Lineker's 'opening line of MOTD voice', but it rings true. With transfer rumours emerging, courtesy of the Athletic, that Jordan Henderson could leave Liverpool this summer, it has sent Reds across the globe into a severe state of confusion. The first question on everyone's lips upon reading the news was - how has this …

Why Saul makes more sense than Tielemans

Why Saul makes more sense than Tielemans

Liverpool have been linked with a lot of midfielders this summer. There’s a new name every week and then, after a while, you see the same ones reappearing on the list. Youri Tielemans was once again back on the agenda this weekend after reports emerged claiming he’s top of the club’s summer shortlist.  According to Sacha Tavolieri, the Belgian maestro is interested in a move to Anfield and Jurgen Klopp is a long-term admirer of the player.  Earlier on in …
After Trent's injury, Henderson's fitness a huge concern during Euros

After Trent's injury, Henderson's fitness a huge concern during Euros

As news of Trent's injury on England duty final settles in, anxieties around his team mate Jordan Henderson and his fitness as Euro 2021 looms. The quad tear suffered by Liverpool's number 66 rules him out of the first few weeks of pre-season in a hammer blow for the right back. In the drama surrounding Southgate's will he, won't he on Trent's inclusion and then subsequent injury has perhaps drawn attention away from the concerns that surround Henderson's inclusion in …
