Who Replaces The Irreplaceable?

Who Replaces The Irreplaceable?

All good things come to an end, it’s sad but true. There’s always that outstanding TV show you binged, that particular period of time that you loved, or even the sport you played, that eventually had to come to an end. Time catches up with everything & everyone, especially in football. When you look at Roy Hodgson and his tenure as Liverpool manager, it was a sad, depressing and underwhelming period that couldn’t end quick enough, much like reality TV …
Mo Salah - The World's Greatest in Waiting

Mo Salah - The World's Greatest in Waiting

At 29 years of age, Mohamed Salah stands as one of the five or six best forwards in world football. His goal return since becoming a red is simply phenomenal. 126 goals in 204 games is world class, and with much still to come, we could be about to see him evolve into the worlds best player. Certain generations have certain superstar footballers that dominate the stage, and these are usually attacking players. Rightly or wrongly, these types of player …
Diogo Jota: Is he ready to replace Roberto Firmino?

Diogo Jota: Is he ready to replace Roberto Firmino?

Diogo Jota has a bit of a knack for not particularly playing that well but managing to find the back of the net. It is a handy trait to have.  He did just that against Norwich City in Liverpool’s season opener, scoring the first as the Reds romped to what was a relatively straightforward 3-0 win.  The 24-year-old scored with what was an instinctive finish after Mohamed Salah’s touch fell kindly into his path. It was a finish that fans …

The importance of Virgil Van Dijk

The importance of Virgil Van Dijk

Earlier on in pre-season, Liverpool journalists claimed Ibrahima Konate was likely going to start the season alongside Joel Matip in defence. It was something of a surprise to see Virgil van Dijk named alongside the former Schalke man in the starting XI against Norwich City on Saturday. He'd come through the friendlies unscathed but it felt like a start in the Premier League was a bit too soon. Maybe Jurgen Klopp felt the Canaries were an ideal team to ease …
Liverpool's Divock Origi conundrum

Liverpool's Divock Origi conundrum

The Divock Origi situation is interesting.  Liverpool are believed to want £20million for the Belgium international. Interested clubs are reluctant to go that high, with Wolves reportedly willing to pay £10million for the 26-year-old.  On one hand, clubs know he’s not part of the first-team picture at Anfield having made just two Premier League starts last season and seven when the Reds won the title. His last league goal for the Reds was on the final day of the 2019/20 …
How should Liverpool line-up in attack this season?

How should Liverpool line-up in attack this season?

Neil Jones got a lot of Liverpool fans talking recently when he wrote that 'next summer is already being talked up as a big one by sources close to the club'. I chose, based on past experience, not to read into that. Instead, it was another line in his piece that stood out to me. "Wonderful as they are, this will be the fifth season that those three [Mohamed Salah, Roberto Firmino and Sadio Mane, of course] have made up …
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 …
