Liverpool's Relegated Player Transfer Roulette

Liverpool's Relegated Player Transfer Roulette

Liverpool have already felt the brunt of the financial pinch caused by the ongoing pandemic. Long linked with Timo Werner, the Reds -- who were either unwilling or unable to match the financial package on offer in West London -- were beaten to the signing of the German international by Chelsea. The prevailing sense, as suggested by all of the journalists close to the club, is that reigning European, World, and English champions will be relatively quiet in the upcoming …
Time for Liverpool to kick on

Time for Liverpool to kick on

The very best teams don’t sit on their laurels. The very best teams don’t let winning slow them down. This Liverpool team have already demonstrated that to an extent. They took the valour of winning last year’s Champions League trophy and used that to push them on to an unprecedented Premier League performance, securing the title with a record seven games to go, and the promise of more records remains. How Liverpool respond in the next seven games is in …
Title-Winning Liverpool the Best for Decades

Title-Winning Liverpool the Best for Decades

Well they did it. It’s over. Liverpool were officially labelled Premier League Champions as Man City slipped up at Chelsea, losing 2-1 and giving Liverpool a 23 point lead with seven games to go. This is the first time in my lifetime I’ve seen Liverpool win the title and for many of you it’s likely either the first of your life or the first one you’re old enough to remember. And for me, this Liverpool team is unquestionably the best …
Bukayo Saka: A Potential Liverpool Target

Bukayo Saka: A Potential Liverpool Target

As much as you could learn next to nothing from Liverpool's return to football from their pandemic hiatus in the drab 0-0 Merseyside derby draw at Goodison Park -- a game played with the tempo of a pre-season friendly -- it did reaffirm something that many of their fans knew: The Reds need a natural, back up option to Andy Robertson. The Scot -- alongside Mohamed Salah -- sat out the game due to an unspecified knock and into his …
Liverpool's Wait Is Over

Liverpool's Wait Is Over

Finally, after what felt like an interminable wait, Liverpool Football Club are Champions of England once again. The Reds' 19th crown -- their first in the Premier League era -- is all the more impressive, given the club's recent boom and bust history; where a title challenge would inevitably be followed a season later by a calamitous collapse. The title tilt of 2001/2002 was followed by a meek 5th placed finish in 2002/2003, again owing to poor transfer market manoeuvring, …
Liverpool: Champions of Time

Liverpool: Champions of Time

“Doubters to believers” A mantra that Jurgen Klopp has drummed into the Liverpool faithful from day one. For decades, three of them to be precise, Liverpool had mounted a few real title challenges, only to fall desperately short and fade into mediocrity thereafter. We’ve seen managerial changes, changes of ownership and players come and go. Still, that title remained as elusive as a mask at a Trump Rally. As Klopp walked away from that opening press conference, supporters already began …
Why Alaba Would be the Perfect Summer Addition at Liverpool

Why Alaba Would be the Perfect Summer Addition at Liverpool

By the looks of things, Liverpool are set to undergo another quiet summer in the transfer market. The Reds' decision not to pursue a move for Timo Werner appears to be a sign of things to come, even though there is no ruling out the prospect of the odd addition coming in. One player who has been loosely linked with a move to Liverpool is David Alaba, who has been a stylish stalwart for Bayern Munich over the past decade, …
Liverpool Aren't Lucky

Liverpool Aren't Lucky

There’s a strange narrative appearing online. Not only are Liverpool lucky to be in the position they find themselves in, but they’re also boring.  Firstly, we’ll address the latter. Fans aren’t used to seeing the level of control shown by the Reds this season. Even the Centurions didn’t have as many points as Liverpool do at this stage of the campaign. Jurgen Klopp’s men haven’t been thrashing teams like Man City did during the 2017/18 season but it feels as …
Key stats as Liverpool put Palace to the sword

Key stats as Liverpool put Palace to the sword

Liverpool equalled their best win of the season and moved within one result of the Premier League title with a crushing 4-0 win over Crystal Palace at an empty Anfield. But what are the key stats from the best Liverpool performance in months? The Fab Factor This was some performance from Fabinho, who absolutely bossed the midfield, leading the way for this Liverpool win. His magnificent pass set away Salah for the game’s second goal, and his absolute worldie of …
Jurgen Klopp's Tactical Conundrum

Jurgen Klopp's Tactical Conundrum

Liverpool players are often accused of being too reliant on the system they’re being deployed in. It’s used as a criticism and as a way to downplay the achievements of Mohamed Salah, Roberto Firmino and Sadio Mane.  “In other teams, they’d be nowhere near as effective.”   And while this might be true, it’s actually adding weight to the managerial ability of Jurgen Klopp. The former BVB boss is often written off as a passion merchant and what he does tactically …
