Is Matheus Nunes the Midfield Alternative?

Is Matheus Nunes the Midfield Alternative?

One of my Anfield Index colleagues has been compiling a comparison piece that relates this this one. The topic of that article will be a direct comparison between Matheus Nunes and Jude Bellingham. The latter is perhaps the most linked player to Anfield in all of football history, which is a very difficult prize to have won. As much as we would like to believe we will spend that sort of money on one player, it’s far more likely that …
Bellingham Funds: Time to Break Glass as Emergency

Bellingham Funds: Time to Break Glass as Emergency

It’s annoying to use a quote that Gary Neville’s made in recent times, but as he’s stated “things are never as bad as they seem and never as good as they appear”. Things don’t appear to be good with Liverpool’s team and especially the midfield right now, but it’s not beyond repair and the season isn’t over as some Reds seem to be intimating. Certain plans will need to be accelerated and the intentions may have to change, but in …

Why Nunes as a Bellingham Alternative for Liverpool is Unacceptable

Welcome to 2023, everyone - Liverpool are still an absolute nightmare to watch. Monday's dire 3-1 defeat away to Brentford was the latest in a long line of unacceptable performances this season and they were deservedly punished for it. A run of four Premier League wins in a row may have been encouraging, but ultimately, those results had only continued to paper over the cracks. Just as Liverpool's latest act of ineptitude got underway in west London, news was breaking …

And this has led many to believe that the squad is now in a state of transition where quite a few changes are needed to get it ready to compete for the next several seasons, with the midfield highlighted as a problem area. Luckily, there are some excellent midfielders out there who could help solve the current woes. Jude Bellingham Jude Bellingham is …
Why Signing Enzo Fernández is More Crucial Than Jude Bellingham

Why Signing Enzo Fernández is More Crucial Than Jude Bellingham

The Liverpool Twitter machine has been in full overdrive these past few days, with two exceptional World Cup talents engulfing the Liverpool-related timelines. The on-going tournament in Qatar is approaching its final stages and despite the continued involvement of one participant, potentially one spectacular deal could to about be confirmed by the Anfield club. All England fans were left wounded by their loss to France on Sunday evening, but with that run came the international emergence of one Jude Bellingham. …
Why Liverpool should favour Jude Bellingham over Enzo Fernandez

Why Liverpool should favour Jude Bellingham over Enzo Fernandez

So, are we really going to end up living in a world where both Jude Bellingham and Enzo Fernandez are in Liverpool shirts next season? It's a mouthwatering prospect, that's for sure. This week's transfer rumours have teased us all that Liverpool could genuinely be in a position where both are signed in the next six months or so, as Jurgen Klopp looks to rebuild his midfield. The question is: what if the Reds can only sign one of them? …
Could Jude Be the Eventual Liverpool Number 8…

Could Jude Be the Eventual Liverpool Number 8…

Below is a link to an article I wrote before the World Cup, before the melee surrounding the on-going LFC ownership. I was assured in my thinking and rightly justified the reasons we could not afford Jude Bellingham. The logic was sound, as the stated price of £100m simply did not fall within a typical FSG model. You can find the link here. The past few weeks have seen the sale of the club rumble on, with various groups and …
Tony Evans: Henderson Haters Could Put Bellingham Off Signing For Liverpool

Tony Evans: Henderson Haters Could Put Bellingham Off Signing For Liverpool

The love-in between Jordan Henderson and Jude Bellingham is sending exciting signals to Liverpool fans. The Borussia Dortmund midfielder would clearly fit into the Anfield dressing room with ease. Bellingham is good. If Liverpool can bring the 19-year-old to Merseyside next summer it will be a coup. All the noises coming from Qatar and Germany suggest there’s a good chance it might happen. What could put Bellingham off? A huge offer from Manchester City or Real Madrid might make the …
Jude Bellingham: Generational and Defining for LFC

Jude Bellingham: Generational and Defining for LFC

It’s amazing in football what appears to develop when nothing can actually happen isn’t. The performances of Jude Bellingham for England at the World Cup, pictures with Hendo or Trent and the tweet from Christian Falk will only seek to add more fuel to the roaring bonfire of hysteria. This is a generational player who Liverpool appear on the surface to have a real possibility of securing. What happens between now and next summer could well define so much in …
