Don't You Forget About Mo

Don't You Forget About Mo

A question that often gets asked of Liverpool fans is, "Who do you feel is the most underrated player in the squad?". You see the same sort of names provided, more often than not: Gini Wijnaldum, Joel Matip, even Andy Robertson before his excellent 2018/19 season. A player who I feel deserves the tag of most under-appreciated within the Reds' roster, though, is Mohamed Salah. Some of you probably think I'm mad to suggest Mo: 2017/18 PFA Player of the …
Is Magnificent Mane One Of Liverpool’s Signings Of The Decade?

Is Magnificent Mane One Of Liverpool’s Signings Of The Decade?

With many great Liverpool players, there are often moments that come along that make you realise how special they are. With Steven Gerrard, it was his thunderbolt against Man United at Anfield. For Luis Suarez, it was his incredible assist for Dirk Kurt against the same team. Fernando Torres’ ruthless finish against Chelsea on his home debut made us realise the Reds had a world-class striker in their ranks. You no doubt have other examples that instantly pop into your …

A Comprehensive Analysis of Ian Ayre's Liverpool Legacy

On Monday, Ian Ayre announced that he will step down as Liverpool’s CEO at the end of the 2016/17 season. The reaction amongst Liverpool fans was understandably uncertain: Ian Ayre manages to simultaneously give off the aura of a childish buffoon and a competent professional.

An embarrassing start …
The Committee Has Done Some Good at Liverpool

The Committee Has Done Some Good at Liverpool

For the sympathisers of Rodgers in the media Liverpool’s problems owed more to the much vilified transfer committee than the Northern Irishman. It is the mitigating factor in Rodgers’ performance at Liverpool and it is spread as a blanket over his own failings. Rather than facilitate the work of a promising young British manager, the transfer committee shackled the Brendan Rodgers, his supporters argue. That does not stand the truth test. The “defence team” have repetitively demonized the structure and …
Despite the signings | Are Liverpool in disarray?

Despite the signings | Are Liverpool in disarray?

Disarray: a state of disorganisation or untidiness. An apt word to describe the current state of affairs at Liverpool Football Club at this moment. A disastrous season has thrown the club into a state of limbo and no one can quite predict what the owners next move will be. Obviously, we are not privy to inside information but as an outsider looking in, the uncertainty and the silence raise a myriad of questions where we desperately crave answers. Despite agreeing …
Clause? What Clause? The Luis Suarez Story

Clause? What Clause? The Luis Suarez Story

In this article I will analyse the complicated world of football contracts, in particular focusing on release clauses, buy-out clauses and the difference between the two. Less than a year ago Liverpool fans were subjected to one the most farcical transfer sagas in recent years. Like football’s equivalent of the Stark’s, Marca issued their monotonous warning again and again.  “Madrid, is coming” and Suarez will be leaving soon. Instead we received news of a bid from notorious penny-pincher Arsenezer Scrooge …
