Liverpool: Champions of Time

Liverpool: Champions of Time

“Doubters to believers” A mantra that Jurgen Klopp has drummed into the Liverpool faithful from day one. For decades, three of them to be precise, Liverpool had mounted a few real title challenges, only to fall desperately short and fade into mediocrity thereafter. We’ve seen managerial changes, changes of ownership and players come and go. Still, that title remained as elusive as a mask at a Trump Rally. As Klopp walked away from that opening press conference, supporters already began …
Liverpool Aren't Lucky

Liverpool Aren't Lucky

There’s a strange narrative appearing online. Not only are Liverpool lucky to be in the position they find themselves in, but they’re also boring.  Firstly, we’ll address the latter. Fans aren’t used to seeing the level of control shown by the Reds this season. Even the Centurions didn’t have as many points as Liverpool do at this stage of the campaign. Jurgen Klopp’s men haven’t been thrashing teams like Man City did during the 2017/18 season but it feels as …
Jurgen Klopp's Tactical Conundrum

Jurgen Klopp's Tactical Conundrum

Liverpool players are often accused of being too reliant on the system they’re being deployed in. It’s used as a criticism and as a way to downplay the achievements of Mohamed Salah, Roberto Firmino and Sadio Mane.  “In other teams, they’d be nowhere near as effective.”   And while this might be true, it’s actually adding weight to the managerial ability of Jurgen Klopp. The former BVB boss is often written off as a passion merchant and what he does tactically …
Thiago Could Provide Silva Lining for Lovren-Less Liverpool

Thiago Could Provide Silva Lining for Lovren-Less Liverpool

The ongoing global pandemic has already had a big impact on football finances. With games returning behind closed doors, clubs have been deprived of matchday revenues, in terms of hospitality, ticket sales, and other streams of income, such as club shop sales. Additionally, and more impactfully, television rebates -- even given the fact they have been pushed out for another year -- will hamstring many teams' abilities to flex their financial muscles in the transfer market. Liverpool have already felt …
Jurgen Klopp’s Best Transfers

Jurgen Klopp’s Best Transfers

It is undeniable that Jurgen Klopp has built one of the best teams in Europe over the past few years. Whether it be bringing in players he has turned into superstars, or young guns that he has brought up through their youth academy, Jurgen has an eye for talent. There have been some questionable transfers, some players who just didn’t work out, but the majority of the moves that have been made have been incredible, and now that more leagues …
Early Premier League win could help Liverpool retain it

Early Premier League win could help Liverpool retain it

With Premier League teams across the country leaping back on the horse to finish the 2019/20 season this week, there is much to play for. Liverpool require just six points to seal a first league title in 30 years, with teams such as Manchester United, Chelsea and Sheffield United scrapping for Champions League spots a few places below them. Further down the table, the likes of Aston Villa and Bournemouth will hope that the long-awaited 'Project Restart' will yield an …
Champions Elect.

Champions Elect.

We're past that stage now aren't we? That fear? That suspension of belief? We only sang "We're gonna win the league" with gusto after we beat United at Anfield back in January. Was it really only six months ago? It seems like an age seems like 30 years. Liverpool are going to win the league and soon. I'm writing this just hours before the resumption of the English Premier League. Manchester City play Arsenal tonight in a vacuum; Liverpool poised …
Do Liverpool need Philippe Coutinho?

Do Liverpool need Philippe Coutinho?

It’s that time of the year again. With transfers being discussed, Philippe Coutinho is once again being linked with a return to Liverpool. It’s been a regular occurrence ever since he forced his way out of Anfield to secure a dream move to Barcelona. But that quickly turned into a nightmare.  He was nothing more than a vanity purchase for the La Liga giants. After initially being rejected, they embraced their inner Michael Jordan and took it as a personal …
Jordan Henderson: Liverpool's Linchpin Leader

Jordan Henderson: Liverpool's Linchpin Leader

This past week marked the nine-year anniversary of Jordan Henderson's transfer from Sunderland to Liverpool. From a skinny right-sided midfielder -- who admitted to being daunted at sharing the same midfield as Steven Gerrard -- to a colossal leader of men, Henderson has come of age at Anfield and is the ideal player to lead Jurgen Klopp's team on the pitch. It is by no means an attempt to demean the energetic 29-year-old -- anyone who wins 55 England caps …
Liverpool's Werner Swerve Could Strengthen Team Bond

Liverpool's Werner Swerve Could Strengthen Team Bond

Excuse the pun, but Timo Werner's decision to join Chelsea came out of the blue. The RB Leipzig forward publicly flirted with the Reds on an almost constant basis; notably taking time to flutter his eyelashes at Liverpool and Jurgen Klopp -- describing both the team and the coach as "the world's best" -- after the Bundesliga side -- thanks to a penalty from Werner himself -- defeated Spurs in the Champions League round of 16 first leg. Then news …
