Finding the perfect forward to add to the Liverpool squad

Finding the perfect forward to add to the Liverpool squad

Liverpool went into the summer transfer window looking to add attacking reinforcements. Fans wanted it to happen. Journalists mentioned the need for a fourth attacker.  French media linked the Reds with Nicolas Pepe, German press claimed Timo Werner was a target for the European champions while reports in Spain said Philippe Coutinho was set for a return to Merseyside. Yet when the window closed, Jurgen Klopp hadn’t added any attacking reinforcements.  It’s still early days, but the decision not to …
Why Liverpool should sign Emre Can

Why Liverpool should sign Emre Can

The professional way in which Emre Can left Liverpool may mean the door is ajar for him to return to Merseyside. There have been no links, no rumours, but with the Germany international not included in Juventus’ Champions League squad, the writing appears to be on the wall for his career there.  Maurizio Sarri reportedly tried to sell him in the final weeks of the window. Having failed to shift other midfielders, the former Chelsea man tried to lighten the …

Oxlade-Chamberlain adds another dimension to Liverpool midfield

Oxlade-Chamberlain adds another dimension to Liverpool midfield

The 4-1 dismantling of Norwich City or the Super Cup triumph over Chelsea should be the highlight of the two weeks old 2019/20 campaign but the biggest positive so far arrived in the 2-1 victory against Southampton.  No, it wasn’t Sadio Mane continuing his destructive 2019 with a goal and an assist. It wasn’t Roberto Firmino opening his account for the campaign just days after coming off the bench to change the game against Frank Lampard’s side in Istanbul.  It …
The lack of full back cover at Liverpool is an uncalculated risk

The lack of full back cover at Liverpool is an uncalculated risk

Liverpool Football Club currently has quite possibly the best full-back pair in the world. Last season was record-breaking for both Trent-Alexander Arnold and Andrew Robertson. Shattering the assists records, while covering the flanks of the best defence in the league. Oh, and they also won the European Cup in one of the most memorable campaigns in recent history. It doesn't get better than that. We are a week away from the first league game of 2019/2020 and to the surprise …
Lessons Learned From Liverpool FC's American Tour

Lessons Learned From Liverpool FC's American Tour

Liverpool completed their pre-season tour of The United States with a 2-2 draw against Sporting CP in Yankee Stadium, New York in the early hours of Thursday morning. The draw was the Reds' third game of their tour, and the first game they didn't taste defeat in after falling to Borussia Dortmund in Indiana and Sevilla in Boston's Fenway Park. As was the case in European Champions' previous off-season jaunts across The Atlantic, the tour can be considered a commercial …

Clyne Injury To Present Midfield Chances

Nathaniel Clyne will miss the rest of 2019 after picking up an injury in Liverpool's pre-season tour of the United States. The former Southampton right back, 28, sustained a knee ligament injury in the European Champions' 3-2 friendly defeat to Borussia Dortmund. It was later revealed that Clyne, who has a year remaining on his Anfield deal, will miss at least six months of action and has departed the Reds' tour to undergo treatment in England. The severity of the …
Why Keita could be key to Liverpool becoming English Kings

Why Keita could be key to Liverpool becoming English Kings

In the context of a football match, a midfielder receiving the ball, dawdling on it, eating a few seconds of time before laterally recycling it is no big deal. It happens umpteen times in the course of every game. In the case of Naby Keita’s Liverpool career, however, it could be symbolic of the Guinean fully acclimating to both Jurgen Klopp’s tactical demands and the pressure’s associated with playing for a worldwide footballing institution such as the Reds. In a …
Selecting the perfect 2019/20 Liverpool squad

Selecting the perfect 2019/20 Liverpool squad

After a tiring but ultimately thrilling season, Liverpool are almost ready to go again. A number of players will return to Melwood for pre-season training next week, as preparations for another huge campaign begin for Jurgen Klopp and his staff. It's been a relatively silent summer on the transfer front so far, barring the addition of exciting centre-back Sepp van den Berg, but a few more incomings will surely arrive in the coming weeks, despite what some are reporting. Several …
Liverpool FC: From 4-1 Humiliation To Champions Of Europe

Liverpool FC: From 4-1 Humiliation To Champions Of Europe

Define ignominious: Liverpool's 4-1 defeat away to Tottenham in October 2017. That dank autumn afternoon was Jurgen Klopp's nadir as Reds manager, at a time when the first few doubts were creeping on about this most charismatic of men. While he wasn't under the kind of pressure many managers find themselves under at low points, frustration was clear and the German was in a rare fragile position. The loss at Wembley left Liverpool sitting ninth in the Premier League, with …
