Andy Lonergan joins Reds in USA as emergency backup goalkeeper

Former Preston North End and Bolton Wanderers goalkeeper Andy Lonergan will join Jurgen Klopp's Liverpool squad on their trip of the USA. Lonergan, currently a free agent, was drafted in due to Liverpool's current lack of fit goalkeepers. First-choice goalkeeper Alisson Becker is still enjoying his summer break after winning the Copa America with Brazil. Simon Mignolet is the highest-ranking stopper who is available to Klopp for the pre-season friendlies. Young Irishman Caoimhin Kelleher and Vitezslaz Jaros both out injured …
Why Excitement and Patience Need to be balanced with Rhian Brewster

Why Excitement and Patience Need to be balanced with Rhian Brewster

As if Liverpool fans weren't already licking their lips at the prospect of Rhian Brewster playing a part in Jürgen Klopp's plans for the upcoming season already, they certainly are now after the teenager striker bagged a brace in the Reds' first pre-season friendly against Tranmere this week. While many will be quick to point out that yes, it's only pre-season and yes, it was only Tranmere Liverpool were up against; there's no denying that Brewster looked sharp, dangerous and …
How Hungry Are Liverpool?

How Hungry Are Liverpool?

The Champions League final in Madrid was an incredible night and was certainly the best way to cap off a fantastic 2018/19 season. I was on the streets of Liverpool with hundreds of thousands of others the following day to witness Jürgen Klopp and his team parade the famous trophy and bask in the glory they’d earned. After the heartbreak of the previous year’s final in Kyiv, and after just falling short in the Premier League title race despite racking …
Werner vs Pepe - who is the better fit for Liverpool?

Werner vs Pepe - who is the better fit for Liverpool?

Not long ago now, Timo Werner was the man the entire Liverpool fanbase wanted the Reds to sign. However, with interest from Bayern Munich well publicised and RB Leipzig seemingly not keen on selling the German international on the cheap despite his contract situation, interest in him waned and a new player replaced him as desirable number one.  Reports in France claimed Jurgen Klopp and the recruitment team at Anfield liked Lille’s Nicolas Pepe. His 22 goal in Ligue 1 …
No Need to Sign a Striker This Summer

No Need to Sign a Striker This Summer

After enjoying a goal-laden season Liverpool are apparently in the market for a new striker, after losing Daniel Sturridge at the end of his contract with the club. The club, despite scoring 115 goals in all competitions last season, are believed by some to be short at the front end of the pitch. With Sadio Mane, Mohammed Salah and Roberto Firmino leading the line it's safe to say goals will not be a problem next season. In-depth strength is a …
Adam Lallana could be deployed in 'Jorginho' role next season says Klopp

Adam Lallana could be deployed in 'Jorginho' role next season says Klopp

Adam Lallana was given another run at the base of Liverpool's midfield, in what Jurgen Klopp called the 'Jorginho' role, during the first half of Liverpool's 3-1 win at Bradford City on Sunday. Klopp experimented with Lallana in this position for the second half of Liverpool's win at Prenton Park last Thursday and wanted to see the former Southampton player in the same role again at Bradford. Two goals from James Milner (one penalty) and another Rhian Brewster strike gave …
Where Do Liverpool Most Need Strengthening?

Where Do Liverpool Most Need Strengthening?

Has there ever been a sensible Liverpool transfer window? No. Well, there’s that sorted, do remember to follow me on Twitter, and stay tuned to any further luminary bits. But that’s not enough, is it? Why, for example, if Liverpool have just won a Champions League final, and have already reported back to pre-season for a day or two, aren’t they already three signings into an emboldened, balls-to-the-wall transfer window? Well, possibly because to catch their only direct competitors, they …
Top Of The Pile Liverpool Must Start Again

Top Of The Pile Liverpool Must Start Again

Liverpool are Champions of Europe. I still enjoy saying that. But even if it feels as though the dust has barely settled on a terrific and historic 18/19 campaign, the quest to match last season or even have a better one, in 19/20 has already begun. Even though it’s still a month until the Premier League begins in earnest, pre-season is already underway. The hard work has to start again, and nothing means anything. When the new season starts, everyone …
Divock Origi says he always wanted to stay with Liverpool

Divock Origi says he always wanted to stay with Liverpool

Liverpool forward Divock Origi has revealed that he always intended on staying at Anfield and that he has "always felt comfortable" at the club. The Reds' Champions League hero has put pen to paper on a new deal which will keep him at Liverpool far beyond 2020 when his previous deal was set to run out. There is no release clause included in Origi's new contract. The Belgian international striker spoke with Liverpoolfc.com shortly after penning his contract extension. When …
Why Liverpool Can Win Number 7 In 2019-20

Why Liverpool Can Win Number 7 In 2019-20

The Champions’ League triumph of 2018-19 was full to the brim with iconic moments that will be remembered forever in the history of Liverpool Football Club. The Alisson save in the dying moments against Napoli, the audacious Trent Alexander-Arnold corner in the seemingly impossible comeback against Barcelona at Anfield and, of course, the Origi finish late on in Madrid, to name just a handful. These events will live eternally in the memories of all Liverpool fans, and rightfully so. However, …
