Klopp - Class is Permanent

Klopp - Class is Permanent

When Jurgen arrived at Anfield, he followed three managers after Rafa Benitez had departed. He was a wonderful manager, a brilliant tactician & a man that brought the Champions League back to the red half of Liverpool. Istanbul stands as the greatest of finals, and the result will stand the test of time. That kind of achievement cements a place in Liverpool folklore. Rafa understood the reds, he understood the fans and understood the need for more. His final disagreements …
Bissouma reaction: Some Liverpool fans will never learn

Bissouma reaction: Some Liverpool fans will never learn

If you're expecting a memorable summer in the transfer market at Liverpool, you're in for a horrible shock. Unfortunately, this isn't FIFA or Football Manager, so the Reds won't be splashing an endless stream of cash, as Jurgen Klopp's men look to bounce back from this most dispiriting of seasons. Given the impact that COVID-19 has had on football, and the fact that Liverpool are highly unlikely to be in the Champions League next year, some perspective is needed. It's …
Virgil Van Dijk's impact on Liverpool

Virgil Van Dijk's impact on Liverpool

When Liverpool paid a club-record £75million to bring Virgil van Dijk to Anfield, they hadn’t conceded fewer than 40 Premier League goals in a single season since 2009/10. On a couple of occasions, they’d even conceded 50.  To challenge for a place in the top four, teams generally had to finish with a goal difference of around +30. It is obviously a bit more complex, but if you look back over the years, that, more often than not, seems to …
Raphael Guerreiro - A Possible Liverpool Masterstroke

Raphael Guerreiro - A Possible Liverpool Masterstroke

Unless something strange happens between now and the end of June, Georginio Wijnaldum's five-year stint with Liverpool will come to an end. The Dutchman, who joined the club in the summer of 2016 from Newcastle United, will leave the Reds on a free transfer with FC Barcelona -- coached by his former Dutch national team manager, Ronald Koeman -- touted as his most likely destination. A key cog to Liverpool's successes during his time on Merseyside, Wijnaldum will be missed …
Liverpool Need To Think Big To Replace Divock Origi

Liverpool Need To Think Big To Replace Divock Origi

By all accounts, Divock Origi's time at Liverpool will come to an end in this summer's transfer window. After a brilliant end to the 2018/2019 season, where the Belgian had a telling hand in both the Reds qualifying for -- with two goals in the semi-final against Barcelona -- and winning -- the forward's goal put the finishing touches in the 2-0 victory over Spurs in the showpiece -- the Champions League, the 26-year-old has failed to recapture that form …
Why A Move For Tammy Abraham Would Make Sense For Liverpool

Why A Move For Tammy Abraham Would Make Sense For Liverpool

Chelsea will consider selling Tammy Abraham this summer for a fee of £40,000,000. The report from The Telegraph's Matt Law says that the Blues will look to move on Abraham as well as Olivier Giroud, given both forwards have failed to impress new manager Thomas Tuchel. With Liverpool in need of offensive reinforcement in the summer transfer window, a move for the 23-year-old England international, provided Chelsea would do business with a rival club, could make sense. Since the 2016/2017 …
Liverpool Need To Address Lack of Height In Summer Window

Liverpool Need To Address Lack of Height In Summer Window

With so many defensive injuries, Liverpool's season has really suffered. It'll take no level of footballing comprehension to know that without Virgil van Dijk, Joe Gomez, and Joel Matip for most of the season the Reds have suffered in a defensive sense. But so many absences in their back-line has hurt the Anfield club elsewhere. Trent Alexander Arnold and Andrew Robertson -- the team's creative hubs -- have had to cut their attacking wings and play in a more reserved …
Ollie Watkins Should Be A Transfer Liverpool Avoid

Ollie Watkins Should Be A Transfer Liverpool Avoid

The transfer rumour mill has gone into overdrive in the last few weeks. Liverpool -- like every other club -- have had several players linked with a move to Anfield. The latest name to be mentioned in the same breath as the Reds is Aston Villa forward, Ollie Watkins. Football Insider claims that the six-time European Cup winners are interested in adding the former Brentford forward to their attacking stock in the summer transfer window. Jurgen Klopp and his squad …
Joe Gomez enters defining period of his Liverpool career

Joe Gomez enters defining period of his Liverpool career

Joe Gomez has now been a Liverpool player for almost six years, which doesn't seem possible. In fact, he is now the fourth-longest-serving player at Anfield, behind Jordan Henderson, Divock Origi and James Milner, yet is still only 23 years of age. Gomez's Liverpool career has been a curious one, with endless moments of promise, exceptional runs in the team, but also a worrying list of injury layoffs. His early performances for the Reds in those first few weeks of …
Assessing Thiago's debut season with Liverpool

Assessing Thiago's debut season with Liverpool

There’s no guide out there on how to use stats in football. Maybe there should be. After all, a stat without context is just a number. Mainstream media has been forced into embracing this part of the sport over recent seasons. They initially resisted, but it quickly became a case of adapt or perish.  As a result, you now regularly see questionable usage of stats in articles written by old-school journalists who have very little experience with numbers.  There’s nothing …
