Into the Unknown: A Full Season of Transition Needs to End Well

Into the Unknown: A Full Season of Transition Needs to End Well

Will there ever be another quiet day at Liverpool this season? It seems impossible to imagine right now, off the back of the announcement that Julian Ward (Sporting Director) and Dr Ian Graham (Director of Research) will be leaving the club at the end of this season. Against the backdrop of FSG putting the club up for sale and a challenging league campaign, it appears the last thing that the club need. The only constant at Anfield right now seems …
Potential Julian Ward Replacements: Paul Mitchell

Potential Julian Ward Replacements: Paul Mitchell

With the breaking news that Julian Ward is set to step down from his position as Sporting Director at the end of the season, Liverpool were left with three major positions set to be vacant by the end of this campaign. A new club doctor and director of research (Dr Ian Graham also confirmed as leaving) are also set to be replaced according to reports, giving FSG - or any new owners - a lot to tackle. On Anfield Index …
What If Klopp Were To Leave After The Liverpool Buyout…

What If Klopp Were To Leave After The Liverpool Buyout…

When FSG announced the club was for sale, there was a moment of surprise, a period of browsing social media, a few group message checks, and finally the wonderment of what we could become. We have been fantastically successful under our current owners, and despite the on-going grumblings of discontent, we couldn’t have won our impressive haul of silverware if not for their own buyout in 2010. The details of prospective owners seemed to reach its peak about a week …
Liverpool F.C Loan Watch - November 20th and 21st

Liverpool F.C Loan Watch - November 20th and 21st

Conor Bradley + Owen Beck (Bolton) Wow, what a night for Bolton. A comeback win, a Bradley goal, and our duo finally starting together! On Saturday, Bolton beat Fleetwood 2-1, and Owen Beck completed his return from injury by starting his first-ever League One game. Despite it not being his best game (he lost 20 duels ouch), he lasted 80 minutes and was only subbed off while Bolton chased the game. Carlos Mendes scored for Fleetwood in the 16th minute, …
Like Father Like Son? Marcus Thuram in January

Like Father Like Son? Marcus Thuram in January

The sons of football legends carry enough pressure to begin with. History tells us it’s a ‘mixed bag’ when it comes to their varying levels of success. Giovanni Simeone, Federico Chiesa and Justin Kluivert are well known within the game and have played at the highest level. On the other side, the likes of Enzo Fernandez (son of Zidane) and Jonathan Klinsmann haven’t quite enjoyed the same level of notoriety. Liverpool’s eye may well have been cast towards one they …
Tony Evans: The Pantspissers Have Been Squealing

Tony Evans: The Pantspissers Have Been Squealing

The football authorities have developed this unhappy knack of taking something special and ruining it. Generally, it’s in pursuit of money. The World Cup is a perfect example. Switching focus from the domestic season to a tournament and back again in a six-week period doesn’t work. In a World Cup summer, the season ends, there’s space to readjust before international competition begins and a similar process happens between the final and the new league campaign. There’s a sense of completion …
Why Curtis Jones Deserves A New Liverpool Contract

Why Curtis Jones Deserves A New Liverpool Contract

Young Reds midfielder Curtis Jones has become the latest player to commit his long term future to the club. In a season where we will probably be bidding farewell to Naby Keita, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and James Milner, Julian Ward and Jurgen Klopp clearly felt this was an asset that needed securing. A new four and a half year deal has been agreed, and the club has chosen to show faith in this talented academy graduate. Curtis is a player that …
New Liverpool FC Owners: What Do We Need?

New Liverpool FC Owners: What Do We Need?

If and when FSG sell Liverpool Football Club, their prime motivation (beyond securing a maximum return on their investment) should be to leave the club in a position where it is financially able to compete with other clubs in a way they simply can't right now.  This is a point Jurgen Klopp acknowledged before the PL game versus Man City a few weeks ago. Selling to owners who can make the club more financially competitive is, whether people like it …
Why Kylian Mbappe should never be a Liverpool transfer target

Why Kylian Mbappe should never be a Liverpool transfer target

The Liverpool FC buyout saga has rumbled on, and much of the fanbase will be quietly (or not so quietly) compiling their own dream teams for the new ownership to go and buy. There are of course my own wants and desires, and I would love the Reds to be as competitive as possible, but there has to be limitations on those dreams. The foundations and history of this club has to be maintained, and no one player should ever …
Liverpool 3 - 1 Southampton - The Post-mortem

Liverpool 3 - 1 Southampton - The Post-mortem

A win is a win, and to sign off for the mid-season World Cup break with three points is a massive bonus for everything Liverpool FC related. With our manager (Jurgen Klopp) banished to the stands for one game, the pre match once again had an air of uncertainty. Would Southampton explode with that new manager bounce? Would Jurgen jump from the upper stands into the technical area? And would Liverpool once again capitulate at Anfield? The day prior seemed …
