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 …
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 …

What should Liverpool do with Divock Origi?

What should Liverpool do with Divock Origi?

I won’t hear a bad word said against Divock Origi, but the club need to sell him this summer.  He’s a cult hero for what he did during the 2018/19 campaign and there’s absolutely no disputing that. It is still surreal to think back to that season and his involvement in it. He was chucked on late against Everton with Liverpool looking to sneak a win and he was in the right place to nod home after Jordan Pickford’s error. …
Where does Salah rank among the all-time Liverpool greats?

Where does Salah rank among the all-time Liverpool greats?

Even in a season where Liverpool capitulated at times, Mo Salah was still largely exceptional. Granted, there were occasions when the Reds' No.11 wasn't at his stellar best, but he was comfortably his side's Player of the Year and helped inspire them to an unlikely third-place finish. While Sadio Mane and Roberto Firmino floundered, Salah scored 31 goals in all competitions, and without him, it is hard to imagine Liverpool's campaign being anything other than a disaster. It is now …
Michael Edwards - The Regeneration

Michael Edwards - The Regeneration

For years, the director of football was a nuisance, an obstacle and a hinderance to most managers throughout the Premier League. The mere thought that any old school manager would need either help, guidance or another body to aid the club football was sneered upon, and often dismissed. FSG have had their failings, that is not in doubt , yet it is the overall process from their tenure that should be applauded. They have learned, progressed, installed a working structure …
Gini Wijnaldum's legacy at Liverpool

Gini Wijnaldum's legacy at Liverpool

Gini Wijnaldum and Sadio Mane kickstarted the Jurgen Klopp era at Liverpool. They were the two big signings during the German’s first summer at Anfield.  Both played a significant part in getting the club into the top four during the 2016/17 campaign. The pair had a key role in the Reds reaching the 2017/18 Champions League final. They repeated the feat the year after, with Liverpool claiming their sixth European Cup in Madrid. A year later, the duo helped the …
Trent Alexander-Arnold - Next Season Awaits

Trent Alexander-Arnold - Next Season Awaits

To even consider that Trent Alexander-Arnold was to be omitted from England’s summer competition, is quite astounding. There are few players in the world football that can deliver a ball with his precision and assist in such audacious ways. Gareth Southgate inevitably saw sense, though that tournament was taken away by a cruel injury this last week, to England’s and Trents bad fortune. Trent Alexander-Arnold has for the most part (in his short career), been a sensation under Jurgen Klopp. …
Liverpool must sign a Gini Wijnaldum replacement

Liverpool must sign a Gini Wijnaldum replacement

So here we are, in a post-Gini Wijnaldum Liverpool world. The Dutchman was a wonderful servant for the Reds during five hugely successful seasons and will forever go down as a modern-day legend at Anfield. Much like Ronnie Whelan in the 1980s, he rarely made the headlines - both had a penchant for scoring big goals, though - but he was vital to everything Liverpool did. He knitted the midfield together beautifully, did endless unsung off-the-ball work and was a …
Is Donyell Malen the answer?

Is Donyell Malen the answer?

Liverpool have already addressed a key deficiency in their squad depth with the signing of Ibrahima Konate from RB Leipzig. But their next priority, even ahead of a replacement for Georginio Wijnaldum, must be recruiting a quality, versatile forward. With the Africa Cup of Nations set to begin on 9 January 2022, the Reds could be without Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mane for a full month of the season. Liverpool can't hope to simply 'survive' that period by assembling a …
