Liverpool FC Squad Analysis: The Depth Chart

Liverpool FC Squad Analysis: The Depth Chart

There are two weeks to go until the summer transfer window slams shut, locks and closes its shutters. Jurgen Klopp has apparently announced there will be no more signings with his comments last week - "We have everything we need for the next season because I don’t think we will do anything more, I’m pretty sure of that." Having written this piece for AI for the past two summers, this year I'm excited to bring you the Depth chart for …
Daniel Sturridge: Back from the Brink?

Daniel Sturridge: Back from the Brink?

At the end of the 2017/18 season, Daniel Sturridge's departure seemed an inevitability. The club had considered selling him the summer before and during the first half of the campaign, they lost faith in his abilities, resulting in a January loan to West Bromwich Albion which sounded the death knell for his Liverpool career. The club had set a fairly modest price tag, in this wacky market at least, of £15million, and but for Sturridge's lofty wage demands, he might …
Sturridge and Lallana - What Next?

Sturridge and Lallana - What Next?

A lot has been made in pre-season of the form of Daniel Sturridge, who has played very well and made a good impact. Once again, we’re in July and Sturridge is still, now at the age of 28, a Liverpool player, despite almost constant speculation about his future at the club for the last three years under Jürgen Klopp. Meanwhile, Adam Lallana is looking to get a full pre-season under his belt as he looks to finally re-start his Liverpool …
What's Next For Liverpool's Strikers?

What's Next For Liverpool's Strikers?

Roberto Firmino is Jürgen Klopp's go-to striker, in his strongest XI. However, the German is faced with issues when Firmino is unavailable, or being rested - who replaces Firmino? Last season Klopp relied heavily on Dominic Solanke as back-up for the Brazil international, and as the season reached it's close Danny Ings got more game time on his road to recovery. But for a player of Firmino's ability, and what he adds to the team, neither can fill his boots. …
Summer Outgoings: Is the Grass Greener on Another Side?

Summer Outgoings: Is the Grass Greener on Another Side?

With the summer transfer window now in full swing, albeit inhibited by the ongoing and increasingly exhilarating World Cup, there could be change afoot for some Liverpool players. Fabinho and Naby Keita have now officially joined the club, marking a new era as far as Jurgen Klopp's midfield is concerned. Meanwhile, a move for Lyon's Nabil Fekir was stopped dead in it's tracks despite a medical and possible interview taking place. Thus, much of the fanbase are fixated on who …
Danny Ings - The Harsh Reality of Football

Danny Ings - The Harsh Reality of Football

Football can be a cruel sport. It’s worth remembering that when Danny Ings signed for Liverpool, he was just 22 years old, although he would turn 23 before the season began. He was fresh off two strong seasons with Burnley and full of promise. That promise looked as though it might begin to blossom under Brendan Rodgers, as a troubled start to Liverpool’s season saw Ings work his way into a starting position and score a couple of goals – …

LFC 2017/2018 Player Ratings - Part 2

After rating the defence, now it's time for midfield and attack. Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain - Average Post-match Rating 6.63, Writers' Season Rating 7.5 The Ox had a slow start to his Liverpool career, appearing mainly as a substitute in the begging of the season. He grew to be our best midfielder as the season progressed before being sidelined by an injury sustained against Roma. His banger against Man City will be on the highlight reel for years. The injury also casts …

Liverpool's Premier League Lineups - a Stats Analysis: Part 2

In part 1 of the lineup analysis, I had a look at our goalkeepers and defense. Part 2 will focus on midfield and attack. The midfield Even after Karius' nightmare performance in Kiev, the midfield is still Liverpool's weakest line going into 2018/2019. Emre Can is likely leaving, James Milner will be 33, Jordan Henderson is injury prone and not consistent, the Ox is injured, Gini Wijnaldum has a tendency to disappear at times and Adam Lallana had the worst …
Liverpool's Premier League Lineups - A Stats Analysis: Part 1

Liverpool's Premier League Lineups - A Stats Analysis: Part 1

The Premier League season is over. Man City dominated the season like no club has done in recent (and not so recent) times. For Liverpool, the campaign was relatively successful with the team managing to qualify for the Champions League for the second straight time - something that hasn't happened since a certain Spaniard was at the helm of the club. The Reds conceded fewer than 40 goals for the first since 2010. And Mo Salah won every possible award …
