Liverpool's academy now rivals their first-team

Liverpool's academy now rivals their first-team

The Liverpool academy used to be full of false hope.  For a period of time, fans had high hopes for the youngsters on the books. The ones who’d either carved out a reputation having impressed prior to their move to Merseyside or those boosted by what they eventually turn out to be according to Football Manager.  Ultimately, the Reds weren’t getting the most out of the time and money they put into their academy. Those tipped for greatness fizzled out. …
Daniel Sturridge: Past His Best But Badly Misunderstood

Daniel Sturridge: Past His Best But Badly Misunderstood

That 1-1 draw at Newcastle on Sunday was infuriating enough, but talkSPORT then decided to spout their usual bile. I say talkSPORT, but in this case it was an individual - Mr Deadline Day himself, Jim White, who presents a morning show on the station during the week. Taking to his twitter account on Monday, White asked the question:
"Talking Daniel Sturridge @talkSPORT right now! Is his attitude holding him back and is his time @LFC coming to an …
Why Liverpool FC Shouldn't Get Shirty About Salah

Why Liverpool FC Shouldn't Get Shirty About Salah

A very tentative welcome to Mohamed Salah then. At the time of writing the Egyptian has all-but signed a four year contract for the Reds and I know we’ve been here before, but this could actually be a proper signing. We’ve made a bid and everything. Sports betting sites such as Fortuna have been confident for some time now. It looks like he’ll cost a little more than Sadio Mane but God knows what represents a good fee these days. I’m still …
Why Sadio Mane will lead to away day improvement

Why Sadio Mane will lead to away day improvement

After coming to terms with an indifferent last day of the transfer window, I believe that new acquisitions are inessential, as our squad is starting to highlight its improvement by forming an identity. This new identity can be non more so defined by that of our £36m man Sadio Mane, who provides the reds with a number of counter attacking options, and these options essentially will lead to a increase in away day improvement. What we have seen from the reds …
Can the Attack Fire Liverpool into the Top 4?

Can the Attack Fire Liverpool into the Top 4?

The Liverpool Echo, more specifically James Pearce, recently published an article informing Liverpool fans that Jurgen Klopp no longer had an interest in Bayern Munich's Mario Gotze and he was happy with his attacking options moving forward into the new season. Given the Reds were looking to bring in Monaco's Kylian Mbappe and Rennes' Ousmane Dembele it does strike me as odd that after only one attacking signing coming in so far this Summer in Sadio Mane, and with Jordon …
A Vital Attribute in a Liverpool Signing

A Vital Attribute in a Liverpool Signing

Just as the season came to a close, the floodgates open for everyone in social media – from journalists with real info, to journalists who make up info, to ITK’s seeking for acknowledgement – all looking for fame and recognition by football clubs’ respective fan base. Transfer-mania begins when you see every player under the sun being linked with your club and with Liverpool falling victim to the ‘2+2=5’ transfer algorithm; they are hardly shaded from the limelight. This may …
The Liverpool Kids - The Future or No Future?

The Liverpool Kids - The Future or No Future?

As seasons go, this one has been something of a bonus for those Liverpool players looking to make the break through proper into fully fledged first team players. The arrival of Jurgen Klopp offered a fresh start, and the run in the FA Cup a platform on which to grasp that opportunity and show the boss why they warranted more than just a spot in the shadows going forward. But now as we enter the twilight of a season that …
Is Roberto Firmino finally showing he's the Suarez Replacement?

Is Roberto Firmino finally showing he's the Suarez Replacement?

Replacing Luis Suarez was an almost impossible task. The sort that nobody wants to take on because you knew it was going to be thankless. The Uruguayan sensation lit up Anfield during his time with The Reds. The goals, the controversy, the desire to win and the spectacular moments that will live long in the memory. The Suarez shadow has been lingering over the club ever since he left. Was anybody going to step out of it? Daniel Sturridge was …
Liverpool's Problems

Liverpool's Problems

Liverpool have problems at the minute and that's about the only thing that all of the Liverpool fanbase can agree on at the minute. Every position on the pitch seems to be problematic, and there doesn't seem to be an end in sight or a way to solve these problems before the end of the season. I'm sure if fans read other Liverpool websites they'll see the one thousand and one different writers expressing their opinions and views on where …
Why we must be patient with Jordan Ibe

Why we must be patient with Jordan Ibe

If Liverpool's progress under Jurgen Klopp is to gather pace, then the development of talented young players at his disposal will surely be of crucial importance. This was certainly the case under Brendan Rodgers, who successfully nurtured players like Raheem Sterling and allowed him to express himself in a side that pushed Manchester City all the way in one of the most exciting Premier League title races in memory. This season, a heavy spotlight has fallen upon promising winger Jordon Ibe. The …
