Why Liverpool need to do the right thing and take Karius out of the spotlight

Martin Luther King once said that
“The ultimate measure of a man is not where he stands in moments of comfort and convenience, but where he stands at times of challenge and controversy”.
He could very well have been talking about Loris Karius after the Champions League final. It is the biggest games that will test the measure of a man. How he copes under extreme pressure and adversity will show a lot about the strength of his …

Why FSG and Klopp Must Go...

Sorry, I didn't quite have space to write my full title: Why FSG and Klopp Must Go On as Before. Now that I have your attention, I'm going to take you back a short while. On the morning of August 31st, 'Liverpool Twitter' was a happy place: Liverpool were still in for Lemar and Van Dijk.

Those words by Albert Einstein are oft quoted to soften the blow of being proved wrong or having to change your mind; nobody likes the thought of either, but at times it’s necessary. Adapting, changing your views and broadening your horizons are courageous actions as one steps out of their comfort zone, you try and adapt and grow whilst reaching for the horizon. Since FSG arrived on Merseyside, many …
