Why Excitement and Patience Need to be balanced with Rhian Brewster

Why Excitement and Patience Need to be balanced with Rhian Brewster

As if Liverpool fans weren't already licking their lips at the prospect of Rhian Brewster playing a part in Jürgen Klopp's plans for the upcoming season already, they certainly are now after the teenager striker bagged a brace in the Reds' first pre-season friendly against Tranmere this week. While many will be quick to point out that yes, it's only pre-season and yes, it was only Tranmere Liverpool were up against; there's no denying that Brewster looked sharp, dangerous and …
How Hungry Are Liverpool?

How Hungry Are Liverpool?

The Champions League final in Madrid was an incredible night and was certainly the best way to cap off a fantastic 2018/19 season. I was on the streets of Liverpool with hundreds of thousands of others the following day to witness Jürgen Klopp and his team parade the famous trophy and bask in the glory they’d earned. After the heartbreak of the previous year’s final in Kyiv, and after just falling short in the Premier League title race despite racking …
No Need to Sign a Striker This Summer

No Need to Sign a Striker This Summer

After enjoying a goal-laden season Liverpool are apparently in the market for a new striker, after losing Daniel Sturridge at the end of his contract with the club. The club, despite scoring 115 goals in all competitions last season, are believed by some to be short at the front end of the pitch. With Sadio Mane, Mohammed Salah and Roberto Firmino leading the line it's safe to say goals will not be a problem next season. In-depth strength is a …
Brilliant Brewster Destined for the Top at Liverpool

Brilliant Brewster Destined for the Top at Liverpool

Some sportsmen and sportswomen just have it, whatever 'it' is . From the moment you lay eyes on them you can see a sprinkling of stardust - an element of genius that separates them from their peers. Tiger Woods had it when he burst onto the scene, so did Roger Federer and Serena Williams, Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo. Closer to home, it was clear within minutes of first seeing Robbie Fowler and Michael Owen that Liverpool had something special …
Barcelona youngster perfect for Liverpool

Barcelona youngster perfect for Liverpool

Liverpool are in the market for a versatile forward who won’t break the bank. A budget of around the £20million mark has been mentioned but that could well be purely to keep expectation low as well as to help negotiations if clubs know they can’t rinse the European champions.  It does narrow the market but it doesn’t make it an impossible brief. There are plenty of young attackers out there who can play a variety of roles, with the potential …
Top Of The Pile Liverpool Must Start Again

Top Of The Pile Liverpool Must Start Again

Liverpool are Champions of Europe. I still enjoy saying that. But even if it feels as though the dust has barely settled on a terrific and historic 18/19 campaign, the quest to match last season or even have a better one, in 19/20 has already begun. Even though it’s still a month until the Premier League begins in earnest, pre-season is already underway. The hard work has to start again, and nothing means anything. When the new season starts, everyone …
Debating the best Liverpool centre back pairings of all-time

Debating the best Liverpool centre back pairings of all-time

Ah, what could have been last season, at least on the domestic front. If you’d backed the reds to win the title you would have been mortified to see them get so close only to be pipped by City but let’s not get too down about things, what happened just a few weeks later will live long in the memory and if you do want to have another punt at Liverpool claiming the title this year, use a free oddsmonkey …
Preparing to go again: Klopp's Mentality is Crucial

Preparing to go again: Klopp's Mentality is Crucial

The Reds have been back at Melwood for a few days but it still seems crazy to think about the new season. It only seems like two minutes ago that Reds were bouncing around in Madrid, and then back in Liverpool. But this is it. A new season. Last season’s success answered so many questions that people had of this Liverpool team – and Klopp himself. He finally won a final, but now his challenge is different. He has the …
Why another loan makes sense for Marko Grujic

Why another loan makes sense for Marko Grujic

When you’re in the 22-24-year age bracket as a footballer, you come to a crossroads. No longer a youth player able to bide your time and develop at a steady pace, there’s a growing awareness that the clock is ticking - you either cut it or you don’t. Where consecutive loan spells would usually spell trouble for such players - see Ryan Kent and Harry Wilson, both of whom face uncertain futures at Anfield with a reduced hope of ultimately …
Why a lack of signings is a positive sign of the times

Why a lack of signings is a positive sign of the times

As we turn over another page in our calendars and find ourselves in July, it's hard to believe just quite the position Liverpool are in. If you'd have told any Red when they were flipping the yearly planners over to July 2018 that, in 12 months time, Liverpool would be the reigning champions of Europe after missing out on the Premier League title by a solitary point, I'm sure the vast majority would have sold their soul to make that …
