Quiet Transfer Window Shows Reds' Growth

Quiet Transfer Window Shows Reds' Growth

I hate transfer windows. I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again. A solid third of the year – and that’s just when it’s open – dedicated to incessant droning about every player under the sun, consistent links and, worst of all, complaining about things that haven’t even happened yet. “Why on earth haven’t Liverpool signed any players yet?” bemoans Steve, 14, from Huddersfield, on 1st July (this is a random example so apologies if your name is Steve, …
Why Liverpool Were Wrong To Loan Nathaniel Clyne

Why Liverpool Were Wrong To Loan Nathaniel Clyne

Today, it was announced that Liverpool had agreed a deal with Bournemouth to loan out Nathaniel Clyne until the end of the season. The deal will not come with an option to buy for the south coast club – with the deal merely understood to be put in place for the 27-year-old to play more first-team football. Clyne joined Liverpool in July 2015, who were then managed by Brendan Rodgers. Joining from Southampton for a fee worth £12.5million, many Reds …
How Michael Edwards has ruined the Transfer Window for me

How Michael Edwards has ruined the Transfer Window for me

The year has come to an end. As we move into the new year, it is supposed to be an exciting time for us football fans - the games are coming in thick and fast over this festive period, and there is more opportunity for us to revel in what Jurgen's Mighty Reds are accomplishing on the pitch. For me, there was always an added reason to look forward to New Year's Eve - it would bring the Winter Transfer …
Brexit Babes Boom in Value as January Approaches

Brexit Babes Boom in Value as January Approaches

Brexit!  And you thought you would be able to avoid politics in the warm, comfortable cocoon that is Premier League football.  Any small nudge to the freedom of movement principle could have a nuclear bomb sized impact on England’s top division.  Liverpool start a maximum of 5 UK born players for any given match these days.  Of all of the players who have seen the pitch this season, 12 players are foreign-born while 7 originate from the British Isles.  For …
New Year New Faces at Anfield?

New Year New Faces at Anfield?

The November international break is usually seen as the real precursor to a sustained period of rumour and conjecture ahead of the January transfer window. For Liverpool, the issues are clear and there have been a number of suggestions made in regard to players who can come in and sort out the problems in defence. But those defensive problems may form only part of the potential business in and out of Anfield at the start of 2018. Traditionally, this is …
Stick or Twist? | Liverpool's January Window

Stick or Twist? | Liverpool's January Window

There have been huge developments at the club over the last year or so, sparked by the arrival of Jurgen Klopp. In the midst of his first full season in charge, the Reds are the closest challengers to current Premier League leaders Chelsea, taking a total of 44 points from 20 games and are just five points behind Conte’s side. Despite claims that there is little value in the January window, Liverpool have proven in recent times that gems can be found …
January - Transfer or Youth for Liverpool?

January - Transfer or Youth for Liverpool?

Is there a reason to buy players in January? Isn’t it better to show your true believe in your own squad and the players you have right now and wait until the summer, when there is more time for everything? I believe that any sort of signing helps in a certain way, even if it’s a failure from a footballing perspective in the future. With any new signing coming in, there is a new impuls, excitement from people at the …
Why Liverpool shouldn't buy in the January Transfer Window

Why Liverpool shouldn't buy in the January Transfer Window

It's still November folks, but already my twitter timeline is starting to fill up with posts discussing the potential Liverpool signings during the upcoming January transfer window. People are debating the credibility of the links & how reliable the website it's from is or isn't. Some journalists are being hailed as extremely knowledgable on all things Liverpool football club, while others are being dismissed as chancers & clickbait merchants. I'm well aware that clubs are constantly scouting & assessing players, …
