Virgil van Dijk - The Game Changer

Virgil van Dijk - The Game Changer

I have to start the article with a disclaimer - English is not my native language and I fear my vocabulary will fail me in describing just how amazing Virgil van Dijk is. It is a task even Shakespeare might have found impossible if he had to create a sonnet about Liverpool's number four. The Dutchman was voted UEFA men's player (also defender) of the 2018/19 season and PFA player of the year after leading the Reds to number six …
Did Liverpool miss a trick in not re-signing Coutinho?

Did Liverpool miss a trick in not re-signing Coutinho?

Liverpool fans this summer were divided in their desire to see Phillipe Coutinho back at the club. Some argued that it would bring welcome quality and depth to Liverpool’s attack, whilst others argued that the club had moved on from the Brazilian and that his manner of departure was unforgivable. Emotions aside, though, and I see a clear trick missed by Liverpool in not bringing him back.  Minutes played The workload of Liverpool’s renowned front three has been a huge …
Klopp's Liverpool Evolution

Klopp's Liverpool Evolution

Last season, Liverpool was arguably the best team in Europe. An incredible Champions League victory and a stupendous 97 point league haul; allied with 30 league wins, which was always a mark of special Premier League Champions (at least in the past!). Four games into the new season, and, so far so good. Liverpool have continued where they left off last campaign. Maximum league points and the European Super Cup a welcome addition to the trophy cabinet. While Klopp is …
Liverpool 4-1 Norwich: A Tactical Breakdown

Liverpool 4-1 Norwich: A Tactical Breakdown

Liverpool's Premier League game against Norwich was the first genuine test Jürgen Klopp's men have faced since becoming European Champions. This was the first occasion in which points were at stake, the team would be able to set a marker and display their intent for the season. The scoreline indicates a strong performance, and the side picking up from where it left off. Yet there were a number of signs that indicate both change and qualitative variance compared to last …
Tactical Analysis: How Liverpool Improved Mo Salah

Tactical Analysis: How Liverpool Improved Mo Salah

When Liverpool signed Mohammad Salah for £37 million from AS Roma in 2017, most people didn’t expect him to have scored 72 goals in 106 games. But, under the watchful eye of Jurgen Klopp, his reputation as a fast winger has rapidly developed into becoming one of the most prolific forwards in the Premier League. Looking back now, and at today’s current market, £37 million is an absolute steal for one of Liverpool’s most potent goal scorers of all time. …
Don't You Forget About Mo

Don't You Forget About Mo

A question that often gets asked of Liverpool fans is, "Who do you feel is the most underrated player in the squad?". You see the same sort of names provided, more often than not: Gini Wijnaldum, Joel Matip, even Andy Robertson before his excellent 2018/19 season. A player who I feel deserves the tag of most under-appreciated within the Reds' roster, though, is Mohamed Salah. Some of you probably think I'm mad to suggest Mo: 2017/18 PFA Player of the …
Why Liverpool Don't Need An Attacking Midfielder

Why Liverpool Don't Need An Attacking Midfielder

Ever since the departure of Philippe Coutinho to Barcelona in January 2018, one principal question has lingered on Merseyside during transfer periods: how will Liverpool replace him? On the surface, it makes sense, but look deeper and it doesn't really hold water. Since January 2018, a Countinho-less Liverpool have been to two Champions League finals, tallied a club-record points haul in the Premier League and lifted "old big-ears" for the sixth time. So while headlines abound as the Reds are …
Origi Stay Signals Liverpool's Transfer Intent

Origi Stay Signals Liverpool's Transfer Intent

Divock Origi will be staying at Anfield for at least one more year. Whilst it remains unclear whether the Belgian will sign a new deal with the Reds, although Liverpool are certainly hoping that he will, what is clear is that no offers for Origi will be entertained in this window, even if that means losing the player on a free next summer. There are a number of interesting aspects to this story. The first thing to note is that …
