The Case For Clyne

The Case For Clyne

Truth be told, Nathaniel Clyne is not an ideal fit for the Jurgen Klopp Liverpool of 2019. That's not to say the former Crystal Palace and Southampton full-back is a bad player; objectively, he is -- as Premier League full-backs go -- good. But with Liverpool's ultra attacking and productive full-back pairing of Trent  Alexander Arnold and Andrew Robertson setting the bar ridiculously high, Clyne will find his game time -- provided he stays -- limited unless injuries occur. There …
Do Liverpool Know How to be Frontrunners?

Do Liverpool Know How to be Frontrunners?

If you could have one movie character share Michael Edwards’ air-conditioning and have a chat across his desk, who would it be? I’ll pause for a moment while you ponder the possibilities. The right answer is, Ben Affleck. No, not Batman. Edwards doesn’t need to be roughed up just yet. Maybe A.J. from Armageddon could have a heart to heart with our sporting director and let him know just how important it is for us that he makes a signing, …
Why A Left Wing Stint Could Be The Making of Brewster

Why A Left Wing Stint Could Be The Making of Brewster

Rhian Brewster’s encouraging pre-season continued last Sunday as the forward scored for the second consecutive game in Liverpool’s 3-1 victory over Bradford City.  Following on from his brace against Tranmere Rovers, the 19-year-old has now registered three goals in his first two senior outings for Liverpool.  The level of opposition must be taken into consideration when appraising Brewster’s performances, with Tranmere -- recently promoted to England’s third tier -- and Bradford, a League Two club, clearly not providing the most …
Divock Origi is Underrated

Divock Origi is Underrated

Divock Origi is underrated.  His goalscoring exploits in the Champions League last term mean fans will always look at him through rose-tinted glasses. A cult-hero for life, the Belgian doesn’t have to do anything in his Liverpool career now.  However, there are some who believe he didn’t deserve his new contract and that he should’ve been sold this summer while his stock was at its highest. There perhaps is an element of truth to that.  After all, Origi was barely …
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 …
