Who should be Roberto Firmino's understudy?

Who should be Roberto Firmino's understudy?

Heading into this transfer window, there was hope Liverpool would bring in a traditional centre-forward. Someone who could not only fill in for Roberto Firmino but maybe also play alongside him. A player who might’ve been able to give the Reds a bit more of a Plan B. Maybe even someone who might be the one to kickstart the next evolution of this team.  The window is still open for a while, but there are no suggestions that this is …
Curtis Jones - The Next Step

Curtis Jones - The Next Step

There have been many young Liverpool players that were primed to make it to the top, however the list of players that actually make it is rather short. Liverpool cannot simply blood youth and maintain levels, thus the domestic cups and throwaway Champions League games are used to give minutes to certain players. Trent Alexander Arnold represents the current academy graduate that has fully established himself in the first team. His rise through the Liverpool system is a sign that …
Why Harvey Elliott might be a better fit in midfield

Why Harvey Elliott might be a better fit in midfield

Everyone just assumed Harvey Elliott would be the long-term replacement for Mohamed Salah. I imagine it is because both are left-footed and both are better when they’re allowed to cut inside from the right.  However, Elliott impressed in midfield during a pre-season friendly, with Salah deployed in his usual right-wing role. Klopp praised the youngster afterwards when speaking to LFCTV: “I don't think Harvey had ever played that position for us, but he looked good.” What if Elliott is the …
James Milner: The Final Year

James Milner: The Final Year

It seems as though he has been around forever, and with one more year on his Liverpool contract, James Milner is still a valuable squad member. His minutes from last season will most probably now drop significantly, but his presence is still an important one for the reds. When leaving Manchester City at 29 years of age (in 2015), it would be fair to say that Milly had already enjoyed a fulfilling career, and could be proud of his achievements. …
Could Jordan Henderson leave Liverpool?

Could Jordan Henderson leave Liverpool?

The European Championships are over, Wimbledon is done, silly season has well and truly begun. Now, I know it's impossible to *not* read that in Gary Lineker's 'opening line of MOTD voice', but it rings true. With transfer rumours emerging, courtesy of the Athletic, that Jordan Henderson could leave Liverpool this summer, it has sent Reds across the globe into a severe state of confusion. The first question on everyone's lips upon reading the news was - how has this …

Why Liverpool's buy-to-sell model needs looking at

Why Liverpool's buy-to-sell model needs looking at

Liverpool are, rightly, lauded for their transfer business. They’ve been near faultless with their incomings since Jurgen Klopp’s arrival in 2015. The Reds have mastered the whole finding undervalued assets and turning them into stars thing.  On the few occasions they’ve gone big on a player, the recruitment team have got it spot on with the likes of Virgil Van Dijk and Alisson having a transformative impact on the team.  They used to be just as effective at moving players …
Time for a central role for Mohamed Salah?

Time for a central role for Mohamed Salah?

Liverpool are back, looking healthy and refreshed after a much-needed post-season break. The 2020/21 campaign was an intense one for the Reds, both mentally and physically, and both Jurgen Klopp and his players looked drained by the time they sealed Champions League football back in May. If one player carried this team more than anyone in 2020/21 it was Salah, who enjoyed another outstanding season while others around him struggled. Liverpool's No.11 scored 31 goals in all competitions, standing tall …
