How Milner Continues to be Liverpool's Ultimate Role Model

How Milner Continues to be Liverpool's Ultimate Role Model

Who else remembers James Milner's arrival at Liverpool four summers ago? It's easy to forget it, in truth. When Brendan Rodgers took him to Anfield on a free transfer ahead of the 2015/16 season, it wasn't a signing that felt game-changing, exciting or fashionable. At 29, there was an argument that the midfielder's best days were behind him, following a stint at Man City in which he proved to be an invaluable utility man. Liverpool signing him almost epitomised that …
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 …

LFC's 2019/20 Fixtures - The Road to the Promised Land

It's only been two weeks since Jordan Henderson lifted big ears in Madrid and we are already moving on to next season. Liverpool supporters eager to see the club build on the success of the past year are now hitting plane tracking websites and looking for our famous van: https://twitter.com/lfcxsam/status/1140367753536311298?s=21 (Un)Fortunately Michael Edwards and co have been so brilliant over the last half a dozen transfer windows, that I don't really care about silly season. The club targets the right …
Thank You, Daniel Sturridge

Thank You, Daniel Sturridge

I'll never forget the first time I spoke about Daniel Sturridge at length. I was on holiday with my family in 2008, and in true father-son fashion a footballing debate was going on. My dad was adamant that the state of English football was in a bad way - he was probably right, in hindsight - with no talented teenagers coming through at time when the 'Golden Generation' were not getting any younger. I spent my time singling out two …
Klopp Enters The Pantheon Of Liverpool Greats

Klopp Enters The Pantheon Of Liverpool Greats

What a night. Liverpool are the Champions of Europe for the 6th time, following a hard-fought, stoically defensive 2-0 win over Spurs. This is a night that will go down in the history of the club, and a night that finally breaks Jürgen Klopp’s duck as Liverpool manager, winning his first trophy for the club. There have been several seminal moments in Klopp’s tenure. I’ve spoken before (including at the time) about Liverpool’s 4-1 defeat to Spurs as a pivotal …

Liverpool Player Ratings: End of Season Edition - Part One

Liverpool Player Ratings: End of Season Edition - Part One

It's that time of year again, a time for reflection. A memorable domestic campaign drew to a disappointing end for Liverpool as a ninth straight league win wasn't enough to prevent Manchester City from a successive title, but there were a string of positives - one of which being qualification for another Champions League final. Whilst we're still a couple of weeks from finding out if the Liverpool squad can make themselves heroes by bringing home number six from Madrid, …
Klopp's Full-Back Conundrum

Klopp's Full-Back Conundrum

Liverpool’s season is almost over, with only the Champions League final left. That, coupled with the fact that the Premier League transfer window is already open, means that transfer speculation and target hunting is the order of the day. Now, most of the speculation regarding Liverpool seems to be that the Reds aren’t planning to spend lots of money this summer, but are merely planning to replace players who leave and touch up the squad. This makes sense, given that …
Observations as Liverpool Miss Out on the Title

Observations as Liverpool Miss Out on the Title

This was grace in defeat, going down in the most beautiful way. Liverpool pushed and pulled and forced their way to 97 points, they made City work for the title. Amassing more points than the Invincibles and any United side managed by Sir Alex Ferguson, there could be no shame in not winning the most coveted prize. Sadio Mane signs out with a bang A team encapsulating so many attacking riches, Sadio Mane has stood up to become No.1 so …
