Thiago signs, so what's Liverpool's best midfield now?

It's the news we've all been waiting for. Thiago Alcantara is finally on his way to Merseyside to complete a highly anticipated switch from Bayern Munich. The 29-year-old Spanish maestro has long been linked with Liverpool over the summer transfer window and now, after seemingly reaching an impasse, a deal has been struck between the two clubs. Liverpool fans are rightly excited about seeing Thiago don his favoured number six shirt in Klopp's team, and he will undoubtedly bring him …
Thiago Signing Indicates Lijnders’ Growing Influence

Thiago Signing Indicates Lijnders’ Growing Influence

Finally, after an interminable series of "updates" on Thiago Alcantara's future, Liverpool have agreed a fee of £27,000,000 with FC Bayern for the Spanish international. Precisely no one will miss the daily reports telling us -- with the wording changed, to disguise the fact there was nothing new being said, after consulting a thesaurus -- that the Reds wanted the Spaniard and he was keen to only join Liverpool but the transfer powers that be at Anfield didn't want to …
Gomez still requires patience from Liverpool supporters

Gomez still requires patience from Liverpool supporters

Who else saw that coming last weekend then? Liverpool played out a Premier League classic against newly-promoted Leeds, getting their title defence off to an entertaining-but-unconvincing start at Anfield. Having not been able to watch the game first time around, I can confirm that following it on Twitter, while fellow supporters lost their minds, was not an experience to treasure. Don't ever do it. On a defensively-sloppy evening for the Reds, the one man who seemed to come in for …
Liverpool Overcome Leeds To Start Title Defence With Win

Liverpool Overcome Leeds To Start Title Defence With Win

A Mohamed Salah hattrick saw Liverpool begin their Premier League title defence with a 4-3 victory over Leeds at Anfield. The Egyptian slotted two penalties, as well as a perfectly executed volley to add to Virgil van Dijk's towering header against Marcelo Bielsa's newly promoted Whites who equalised three times, through Jack Harrison, Patrick Bamford and Mateusz Klich. Although looking uncharacteristically shaky at the back, the Reds -- who conceded to all three of Leeds' shots on goal -- crafted …
Curtis Jones primed for starring role at Liverpool in 2020/21

Curtis Jones primed for starring role at Liverpool in 2020/21

It is a rare thing to see a young Scouser make the grade at Liverpool, backing up their early promise and becoming a hero to millions around the world. Trent Alexander-Arnold is the most recent homegrown talent to become a star at Anfield, but it has been slim pickings for many years. For every Alexander-Arnold, there are many who aren't good enough, whether it be Jon Flanagan, Jay Spearing or Jordan Rossiter, not to mention the endless individuals who aren't …
The Curious Case of Marko Grujic - What Could He Add To The First Team?

The Curious Case of Marko Grujic - What Could He Add To The First Team?

Marko Grujic's time at Liverpool may be about to come to an end. AC Milan look poised to bid for the midfielder, and it is likely that the Reds will accept. However, the latest reports indicate that Grujic may have the opportunity to prove himself, should these moves not materialise. The factors that dictate whether he is able to contribute are his performances during his loan spells at Hertha Berlin, his appearances for Liverpool and what he can provide that …
Buyback On Brewster Benefits Both

Buyback On Brewster Benefits Both

The future of Rhian Brewster has proved to be a major talking point in the last few weeks. The talented forward enjoyed a strong pre-season for Liverpool, scoring three goals in two games, a run of form that led some fans to suggest that the Reds ought to keep the England youth international for the upcoming campaign instead of letting him depart on another loan. Mike McGrath of The Telegraph, however, reported that the English champions -- who were initially …

He Didn't Kostas Much - August 2020, The Month That Was

August began with Liverpool unveiling their new kit, the first one released under their new deal with Nike. Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, Virgil Van Dijk and the boys unboxed the kit and their enthusiasm for the kit was quite striking. Fire! Swoosh! Flamey! Robbo, pay your bills man! Liverpool did a signing!! Rejoice! The Reds landed Kostas Tsimikas for a fee in the region of £11.5mil, which looks like a bargain for an international left back with Champions League pedigree. Especially when …
Could Minamino Offer Midfield Magic?

Could Minamino Offer Midfield Magic?

Takumi Minamino's Anfield career hasn't really taken off yet. Despite some bright moments, including a well-taken goal -- which was part of an overall impressive cameo -- in the Community Shield versus Arsenal, the Japanese international is yet to hit the heights of his Red Bull Salzburg form yet. The 25-year old introduced himself to the Reds' faithful with a brilliant performance for the Austrian's at Anfield in last season's Champions League. Salzburg eventually found themselves on the receiving end …
Gini Wijnaldum: A Fantastic Servant, Time To Make Way

Gini Wijnaldum: A Fantastic Servant, Time To Make Way

The deal that had been proposed for weeks is finally taking shape. There have been many players whom have divided opinion amongst the Liverpool fanbase in history - Dirk Kuyt, Luis Garcia, Danny Murphy are amongst a few. And with Georginio Wijnaldum potentially set to leave the club and wrap up a £15million deal to Barcelona in the coming days, the Dutchman could be joining that list soon. Wijnaldum joined Liverpool in the summer of 2016, signed for £25million by …
