Why Wijnaldum warrants a new Liverpool contract

All talk surrounding Liverpool at the moment surrounds when the season will resume and when Klopps men will finally get their hands in that nineteenth league title. This is big issue number one, of course, but under the surface, there are a number of interesting sub-plots simmering away on the back burner that make for quite interesting thinking.

Why Alexander-Arnold is Gerrard's heir

Countless players have been dubbed ‘the next Steven Gerrard’ over the years.

Gini Wijnaldum is certainly one that stands out in that respect, seemingly appearing to be a needless addition, not to mention one who wasn't expected to be used as an understated midfielder. The signing of Sadio Mane was also fairly surprising, believe it or not, at a time when Mario Gotze was the more fashionable alternative. In the summer of …

Why hasn't Divock Origi kicked on from Madrid - and is Klopp to blame?

Not only did Divock Origi's goal in the Champions League final reaffirm Liverpool's status as European royalty it also provided the impetus for this season's title bid. However, one person the goal seems to have had the least impact on is the man who actually provided that moment of magic in Madrid. There's no doubting Origi will be remembered extremely fondly by Reds' fans having scored a countless number of important goals, but, you can't help but feel he hasn't …

Liverpool Could See Ideal Player In Blind

As football has hit the corona-virus induced pause button, the whirling world of transfer rumours shows no sign of slowing down.

Jurgen Klopp's substitution pattern

Jurgen Klopp's substitution pattern
