Liverpool could still make two major signings before transfer deadline

Liverpool could still make two major signings before transfer deadline

Football pundit Tony Cascarino believes reigning European champions Liverpool F.C could yet make two significant signings before the transfer window shuts in nine days' time. Liverpool had enjoyed an extremely quiet summer so far, with only teenagers Sepp van den Berg and Harvey Elliot arriving at Anfield. However, the Reds are once again linked with a late transfer to sign Barcelona's Ousmane Dembele on Tuesday morning, while there are also rumours the Merseysiders targets another talent from Fulham in Ryan …
Pre Season Selections Give Hints To Pecking Order

Pre Season Selections Give Hints To Pecking Order

Liverpool continued their lacklustre pre-season with a 3-0 defeat to Napoli at the home of Scottish Rugby, Murrayfield, yesterday. The performance, as had been the case in the previous three games on the summer tour of the United States -- against Borussia Dortmund, Sevilla and Sporting CP -- was poor, as the Reds looked disjointed in both attack and defence. The European Champions depart for Evian, France for a training camp this Monday, and manager Jurgen Klopp has promised that …
Can this Liverpool Team Finally Deliver the Premier League?

Can this Liverpool Team Finally Deliver the Premier League?

One of the most menacing attacking trios in world football; a menacing defence that boasts possibly the best centre-back in the world; and a non-stop midfield, and yet there are still question marks over Liverpool’s title credentials. Last season, the Reds fell short by a single gut-wrenching point to the money-flailing Manchester City, but given their step up from fourth over the last two seasons, there is certainly space for optimism for the 2019/20 campaign. Despite coming so close, it’s …
Outside The Box Option Can Provide Wing Depth

Outside The Box Option Can Provide Wing Depth

Liverpool fell to yet another pre-season defeat on Sunday as they were soundly beaten 3-0 by Carlo Ancelotti's Napoli at Edinburgh's Murrayfield Stadium. The performance was anaemic and sloppy and the Reds made a team who are two weeks behind them in preparations for the new season look far sharper and fluent. An interesting element of the line-up Jurgen Klopp started the game with was his use of Georginio Wijnaldum and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain as the wide players -- sandwiching Divock …
Clyne Injury To Present Midfield Chances

Clyne Injury To Present Midfield Chances

Nathaniel Clyne will miss the rest of 2019 after picking up an injury in Liverpool's pre-season tour of the United States. The former Southampton right back, 28, sustained a knee ligament injury in the European Champions' 3-2 friendly defeat to Borussia Dortmund. It was later revealed that Clyne, who has a year remaining on his Anfield deal, will miss at least six months of action and has departed the Reds' tour to undergo treatment in England. The severity of the …
Havertz Little Patience

Havertz Little Patience

Yes, this is a piece condoning, and perhaps even encouraging, a lack of Liverpool signings this summer. But if anyone’s angered by that, they’re hanging onto a reality that’s long passed them by. After all, Liverpool fans have had it broadcasted on repeat that Klopp and co. aren’t planning any significant investment this summer. Of course, the need for an able backup attacker is still as imperative as it was a month ago, as is detailed by this author’s piece …
The Case For Clyne

The Case For Clyne

Truth be told, Nathaniel Clyne is not an ideal fit for the Jurgen Klopp Liverpool of 2019. That's not to say the former Crystal Palace and Southampton full-back is a bad player; objectively, he is -- as Premier League full-backs go -- good. But with Liverpool's ultra attacking and productive full-back pairing of Trent  Alexander Arnold and Andrew Robertson setting the bar ridiculously high, Clyne will find his game time -- provided he stays -- limited unless injuries occur. There …
Do Liverpool Know How to be Frontrunners?

Do Liverpool Know How to be Frontrunners?

If you could have one movie character share Michael Edwards’ air-conditioning and have a chat across his desk, who would it be? I’ll pause for a moment while you ponder the possibilities. The right answer is, Ben Affleck. No, not Batman. Edwards doesn’t need to be roughed up just yet. Maybe A.J. from Armageddon could have a heart to heart with our sporting director and let him know just how important it is for us that he makes a signing, …
Why A Left Wing Stint Could Be The Making of Brewster

Why A Left Wing Stint Could Be The Making of Brewster

Rhian Brewster’s encouraging pre-season continued last Sunday as the forward scored for the second consecutive game in Liverpool’s 3-1 victory over Bradford City.  Following on from his brace against Tranmere Rovers, the 19-year-old has now registered three goals in his first two senior outings for Liverpool.  The level of opposition must be taken into consideration when appraising Brewster’s performances, with Tranmere -- recently promoted to England’s third tier -- and Bradford, a League Two club, clearly not providing the most …
Divock Origi is Underrated

Divock Origi is Underrated

Divock Origi is underrated.  His goalscoring exploits in the Champions League last term mean fans will always look at him through rose-tinted glasses. A cult-hero for life, the Belgian doesn’t have to do anything in his Liverpool career now.  However, there are some who believe he didn’t deserve his new contract and that he should’ve been sold this summer while his stock was at its highest. There perhaps is an element of truth to that.  After all, Origi was barely …
