Why Kai Havertz is Roberto Firmino's heir

Why Kai Havertz is Roberto Firmino's heir

Kai Havertz is no stranger to Liverpool fans. The Germany international has, if reports are to believed, been on the club’s radar for three years now. But with the Bundesliga now the only top-five league back in action, more eyes than ever before are on the 20-year-old. He was given a decent platform to impress, too.  Bayer Leverkusen entertained Werder Bremen in the Monday night game and, deployed as the number nine, Havertz added two to his tally as Peter …
A Fabinho & Keita post-lockdown masterclass?

A Fabinho & Keita post-lockdown masterclass?

In 2018, if Liverpool fans had been asked who the Reds' most important midfielders would be by the time 2019/20 ended, Fabinho and Naby Keita would likely have come out on top. The pair arrived during the summer of that year, with both considered elite footballers who could take Jurgen Klopp's ever-improving side to that next level. Liverpool's other midfielders were perfectly effective in their own right, but the two new additions seemingly represented another calibre of player - the …
Why Timo Werner is perfect for Liverpool

Why Timo Werner is perfect for Liverpool

Everyone knows all about Timo Werner.  He’s been perpetually linked with a move to Liverpool ever since his debut season with RB Leipzig. Over recent weeks, the noise has increased and it feels as though it’s a matter of when and not if the German international makes the switch to Merseyside.  However, many aren’t appreciating just how useful Werner would be for Liverpool. He’s being pigeonholed as a goalscorer and nothing more. That isn’t necessarily a negative, some players build …
Who Liverpool should sign Brazilian wonderkid

Who Liverpool should sign Brazilian wonderkid

Over recent years, Liverpool have turned into something of a destination club for Brazilian players. Alisson Becker, Fabinho and Roberto Firmino currently call Anfield home while Philippe Coutinho and Lucas Leiva spent large periods of their careers on Merseyside. Believe it or not, Fabio Aurelio spent six injury-filled years as a Liverpool player too. Diego Cavalieri and Doni’s time on Merseyside was fleeting though the latter apparently played a part in the Premier League leaders signing Alisson.  Whereas in the …
Liverpool's No D*ckhead Policy Paying Dividends

Liverpool's No D*ckhead Policy Paying Dividends

Liverpool took their first tentative steps towards restarting their campaign when small groups of players took part in non-contact training at Melwood yesterday, Wednesday. What was noticeable among the players was that the usually impeccably coiffured hair of some of the squad's members -- the Brazilian duo of Alisson and Firmino, particularly -- had grown untamed without access to barbers during lockdown. Now, trying to garner any information about a person's personality based off how they keep their hair is …
What If...Dembele scored to make it 4-0?

What If...Dembele scored to make it 4-0?

In the latest in our ‘What If?’ series, Henry Jackson takes a look back at a sliding doors moment from Liverpool's unforgettable Champions League tie against Barcelona last season. Football can be decided by incredibly fine margins, with legacies potentially shaped or ruined by one-off moments that can work for or against your team. For Liverpool, one moment that may be looked back upon as a genuine turning point in the Jurgen Klopp era took place on May 1st, 2019. …
James Milner: Liverpool's Greatest Free Transfer?

James Milner: Liverpool's Greatest Free Transfer?

I have a confession to make. I used to think James Milner was horribly average. There was a time before his Liverpool and Man City days that I felt he represented everything wrong with English players, in particular an apparent lack of guile. The sight of Milner consistently featuring for England seemed to sum up the Three Lions' shortcomings in major tournaments and I failed to see what others saw in him. That was pushing a decade ago, however, and …
Van de Beek a Potential Dutch Delight For Liverpool

Van de Beek a Potential Dutch Delight For Liverpool

With each passing week, uncertainty over Georginio Wijnaldum's future at Liverpool begins to grow. The Dutchman -- such a key component to the Reds European Cup win last season and their soon to be confirmed Premier League title win -- only has a year remaining on the 5-year deal he signed when arriving at the club from Newcastle United in 2016 and the radio silence over any progress on a new contract has the Anfield faithful worried. Whether Liverpool look …
The What Could Have Been Liverpool XI: Attack

The What Could Have Been Liverpool XI: Attack

There have been several players in Liverpool’s recent past who have enjoyed the best football of their careers at Anfield and inscribed themselves into the club’s history with memorable performances. Steven Gerrard, Jamie Carragher and Fernando Torres — to name but three — either spent all of their careers or, in Gerrard’s case as good as, with the Reds or — with Torres as an example — enjoyed their career-best runs of form in a Liverpool shirt. There have been …
