Are Liverpool The Right Club for Fabio Borini?

Are Liverpool The Right Club for Fabio Borini?

On-going speculation and several transfer links with other clubs has clouded what might have been a pleasant summer holiday for Fabio Borini. Whilst most 'fringe' players would enjoy attracting interest from other Premier League clubs offering regular first-team action, Borini was having none of it. After enjoying a successful campaign on loan at Sunderland last season, it seemed logical that the Italian would become a permanent fixture in Gus Poyet's squad. Last season, Borini netted seven goals in 32 Premier …
Liverpool FC: Shaping up for 2014/15

Liverpool FC: Shaping up for 2014/15

Liverpool arrive yet again at major crossroads in their path to challenge for top honours. Cries of ‘it’s the bigger summer transfer window’ in years are heard around Anfield and social media is in a frenzy over how the proceeds from the impending sale of Luis Suarez should be spent. Luis Suarez – the day was always going to come when he would pack up and head to sunny Spain. Thankfully, due to Liverpool’s canny owners and the insert of …
Liverpool FC in August 2014 | What changes could Liverpool make?

Liverpool FC in August 2014 | What changes could Liverpool make?

Thanks to Brendan Rodgers and his team's work so far this season I am going to suggest that we have already done enough to secure a top 4 spot this season. We have 10 games left to try and finish as high as we possibly can in the Barclays Premier League. The Champions League is where this club belongs and with it comes the prestige and the extra funding the club requires to maintain our aim of eventually winning our …
Why December is important to Liverpool's season

Why December is important to Liverpool's season

Next month is by far the most important month of Liverpool's 2013/14 campaign on a whole. December is the month when players get tired from the past few months of football and see themselves pushed to the limit with a rush to get all of our remaining 7 games played and out the way before we can make any signings in January and freshen the squad up, and here is just why December is crucial to Liverpool's season. The first …
Liverpool Summer Transfer Round-Up & Evaluation

Liverpool Summer Transfer Round-Up & Evaluation

After missing the Champions League the last three seasons, Liverpool are hoping to boost their team with all the new signings they have made this summer.  Liverpool have had a tough time finishing sixth, seventh, eighth, and seventh in the last four years and it has gotten tougher for them to attract the big player without Champions League football and have been wasteful with their money in recent years. In Brendan Rodgers' first season, he tried to change the way …
Player Profile: Stewart Downing

Player Profile: Stewart Downing

On Friday 15th of July 2011 it was announced that Stewart Downing had completed his long awaited move to Liverpool Football Club. It has to be said that this signing has been somewhat underwhelming for most Liverpool fans, especially with the suggested price tag of £20 million. Although Stewart Downing may not be player that will set the world alight, he still has a lot to offer Liverpool. Also being a left-footed wide player he is something Liverpool have been missing for a long, long time …
Liverpool close in on Adam and Downing

Liverpool close in on Adam and Downing

Kenny Dalglish is confident of landing two more players in the coming days as he hopes to secure the signatures of Charlie Adam and then Stewart Downing. Jordan Henderson, who was signed earlier this month is said to be one of many new faces at Anfield this summer as Kenny Dalglish builds a squad capable of challenging at the top end of the Barclays Premier League.  Adam has been a long term target, his transfer saga looks to be finally …
What Liverpool FC need (Part I) - The Left Back.

What Liverpool FC need (Part I) - The Left Back.

  We could sit here all day, and debate what areas of our current squad needs strengthening. We could also discuss potential targets, and how realistic a chance of a certain team accepting a bid, and a certain player joining.   In fact, I have read many a debate on the the forums here (Anfield Index Forum), I've had many a discussion over a beer, and hear various shouts on the terraces at match days. In these discussions, I think …

Rumour: Bojan and Canales

Liverpool are looking to boost their attacking lineup by adding two of the hottest talents on Spanish soil, Bojan Krkić and Sergio Canales. Canales warded off any attempts to get him on loan in January, but patience is running thin.'Its been a tough year', admits Canales. For someone who should be starting games at this age, he is waiting in the wings for his turn. With the wealth of talent in Madrid, it doesn't look like the attacking midfielder stands a chance of replacing Kaka or Ozil in the first team. Damien Comolli, now the Director of Football at Liverpool FC, rates him highly from his days at Racing Santander …
